So if Africa is poor that means Africa can be BOUGHT like a candy bar in a convenience store since being 'poor' is a civilization construct of comparing those who have all 'rich' and those who dont have none 'poor'. My question is if you have all,ie 'rich', why waste your time with 'poor' Africa.
Essential this poor Africa talk is for those who wish to exploit for their own gain whether in Africa and out. Ancient Africans did not look at this land the same way as we do today? I wonder why? Were these ancient Africans waiting to be bought like a candy bar?
Currently, Africa IS being bought "like a candy bar". It was bought by Europeans, then greedy and devious native leaders, and now the Chinese. My interest in "buying" Africa is not rooted in avarice or base personal interest, but the desire to alleviate the epidemic of infectious disease, malnutrition, and all the other stuff.
