Oh, you think I was talking about the UK?

You're making yourself very easily confused then.

I love it when you relegate your humanitarianism to a mere side-effect. It shows just how shallow it really is.
Maas wrote:And so would you. Because you don't want those people to seek economic prosperity in the UK [or any other country that you like].
Indeed, I'm glad you agree with me.
Maas wrote:It's your own character flaw that you can't step beyond pitty Japanese nationalistic sentiments.
It would be if that were my position, but unfortunately for you, I actually agree with you
(as anyone actually reading my posts in this topic can see). Let's all team up and exploit Africa in every way we can, if they let us.
Your liberal humanitarianism is paper-thin, the difference between us on this issue is that you pretend
to care deeply about what travesties are visited upon hapless Africans because of their political inability to do internal investment and development.I
at the very least am honest, so I announce that I am not
seeking their best interests in my thoughts regarding their region. Hence why my posts in this topic are not insulting people's intelligence.
When Africans are killing each other in Darfur while land in Darfur is being hilariously sold to South Koreans - for example - you'd have to try really hard to make the humanitarian case for that, but I'm sure you'll manage it somehow, Maas.
The deep truth is that if Africans don't help themselves, then this will keep happening. And none of us have to even care.
