    Actually the Government is basically the main reason why Africa is in such a bad shape.

    Well.............its not really the governments fault for war, famine, and disease.

    Unless the government actually started the war. But most of the wars aren't started like that.

    Disease and famine are able to be controlled in away, but the government surely didn't just infect the population.

    Famine is usually from share of wealth or bad agriculture. Both not directly the governments fault either, but in poor countries "sharing wealth" is a nice idea but if the whole country is poor already, its not going to do much. Ironically the US has one of the biggest gaps in wealth distribution but they do fine.
    -----------------

    Africa is a lot more complex than "the government is bad".

    I agree to an extent but we aren't just talking about a single poor country, we are talking about africa itself, in north america we help each other out when we are in terrible situations, like we help Africa. But the thing is the rich countries in Africa like South Africa do nothing but continue to spend millions upon millions on pointless buildings to show off, where everybody surrounding them are starving and dying, so all in all government corruption is a big part, but I can agree famine also plays a big roll.
    U.S may have a big gap to deal with but they certainly have much less to deal with than Africa or the middle east, anyways I can agree with you.

    Well the problem with that logic is that SA is actually one of the nice places. Not only that, even if it the government is corrupt, the people have a much higher standard of living than most of Africa.


    If you want to talk about how everyone in NA is doing fine i thanks to the countries helping each other i can just point to mexico and say "nope".
    -----------------------


    Government plays a role. Just not a big enough one to blame all the problems on it.

    Isn't Africa actually getting better? Nigeria and Egypt are on the N11 list...
    You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named 'Bush', 'Dick', and 'Colon'.

    Meh, I doubt it. Too many standards in today's world. Another Rwandan genocide won't happen while we sit on our asses.

    africa is comprised of several governments, to say that there is one government is a ridiculous thing to say. are centain governments responsible for whats going on, maybe. at the same time, media percieves things in a tone of exaggeration mostly.
    the one thing that is harming countries in africa is that they are not united or at least try to hold some form of unity. like stated earlier, the country is rich in minerals and resources, and *could* be very prosperous. for africa do prosper, war must end.

    Yeah, of course it's rich in resources.

    What's going to happen as a result of this?

    Either A. The U.S or whatever other country that wants those resources will just barge right in and take whatever they want.

    or

    B. The 1%, the government, are going to make money off of it, and the actual people will get dicked.

    Either of those aren't good for the African people, so the fact that they have those resources doesn't mean much sadly.

    Can't tell if pessimistic or just utterly naive........

    I like how both the options are your answer to pretty much everything: Blame the government, or the us.

    When you see millions of people get fucked in their eye sockets daily by the U.S government, that tends to be your outlook on things.
