1- Dont blame all African problems on colonisation because its nonsense. Europe has brought bad things to them but also an enormous amount of good things. All the technology they have its mostly thanks to us. Nowadays, in the 21st century, If they arent able to develop like other countries, its their own fault, not colonization fault anymore.Herb Tarlik wrote:Abject nonsense. Europeans drew the borders to the African "countries" with no regards to the tribal interests that existed at that time. The same thing happened in the middle east. European meddling in Africa created enormous problems that continue up to this day. Read about how the Belgians broke up the Rwandan people creating the Hutu/Tutsi division. See below to understand how it was Europeans that planted the seeds of the genocide that occurred.nixxxon wrote:You mean colonization in africa?

What are your thoughts on the money looted by the Europeans over the centuries due to colonization? The fact that many countries continue to be poor to this day primarily because they were governed by and for the benefit of Europeans?
"The Berlin Conference of 1884 assigned the territory to Germany and began a policy of ruling through the Rwandan monarchy; this system had the added benefit of enabling colonization with small European troop numbers. European colonists, convinced the Tutsi had migrated to Rwanda from Ethiopia, believed the Tutsi were more Caucasian than the Hutu and were therefore racially superior and better suited to carry out colonial administrative tasks. King Yuhi V Musinga welcomed the Germans, whom he used to strengthen his rule. Belgian forces took control of Rwanda and Burundi during World War I, and the country was formally passed to Belgian control by a League of Nations mandate in 1919.
The Belgians initially continued the German style of governing through the monarchy, but from 1926 began a policy of more direct colonial rule in line with the system used in the Belgian Congo. They simplified the chieftaincy system, reducing its numbers and concentrating it in the hands of Tutsi, extended the scale and scope of uburetwa, and oversaw a land reform process by the Tutsi chiefs, in which grazing areas traditionally under the control of Hutu collectives were seized and privatised, with minimal compensation. In the 1930s, the Belgians introduced large-scale projects in education, health, public works, and agricultural supervision. The country was thus modernised but Tutsi supremacy remained, leaving the Hutu disenfranchised and subject to large scale forced labour. In 1935, Belgium introduced identity cards labelling each individual as Tutsi, Hutu, Twa or Naturalised. While it had previously been possible for particularly wealthy Hutu to become honorary Tutsi, the identity cards prevented any further movement between classes."
Yes, and others are free to take away things from Europe if they bid higher. You are in the minority so you lose out in this case.nixxxon wrote:It is full compatible with a free society, you are mixing up things.
