I understand that there may be questions regarding China true motives in "investing" so heavily in Africa, but, to my knowledge, I don't think the Chinese have ever dropped bombs on Africa/African villages, murdering men, women, children and babies and put a puppet president in office to murder his own people.

Yep! This is correct. However, the world did notice the genocide in Rwanda. But by the time, they recognized what was going on hundreds of thousands were murdered and left on the streets decaying.

That is our problem: As a people, we are too nice to a fault! We should have immediately killed every single last one of them as soon as they stepped foot on our lands.

Conflict free gold or diamond or drug or chocolate or oil or shoes or hardware sourcing is hard to enforce. Crime is here to stay. Leaders don’t care about people – and people cannot unite. The system is corrupt because humans are greed-blinded animals. I always say, start a project with 3 to 4 people. It could be a for profit business that helps others. It’s hard to get cooperation with 3 to 4 people. That’s project enough. IMHO, of course!

State of mind is powerful and can be limiting. Cooperation makes sense. Humans don’t.

When you own resources like that, you could cut a far far better deal. Not happening. WYSIWYG What I do with that is go back to what I do…. work in a 3 to...
