according to the article provided in that post they’re just foreign branches of china’s police force dedicated to cracking down on political dissidents and scamming



Ok but who elected this transitional council? What makes them good choices for rebuilding the country’s institutions? Do they have detailed plans for what they’re going to do when they form the government? I think it’s crazy to believe they can repair the institutions of a country that has been dysfunctional since independence in the span of two years


no but of course there are times when you think maybe there’s a better way to govern ourselves but even if there was such a way humans will always hope for something more


because classism exists everywhere and even though it may manifest a bit differently it’s still the same essence


The US also spends the most of any developed country on healthcare but has the worst of them all so it’s more important how you spend the money than the quantity allocated to a specific sector



no putting aside the language barrier there’s also themes that are created for a specific audience


no they shouldn’t for your pension you want a reliable stream of income


what are you going to use it for?



really don’t like when people romanticize poverty but if I had to guess why people say that poorer countries feel more authentic it’s just due to the fact that it’s different to what they’re accustomed to and this could be replicated by just going to the poorer areas in their own country




  1. I just explained why a law would be a poor tool to solve this problem

  2. All countries on the continent are not former france colonies and even for those that are we can clearly see states like senegal making real effort to create jobs so that completely negates the idea that france is responsible for everything wrong with Africa and further validates my talk about failure on the part of African governments


They have laws against child labour and all other ills that plague the continent so they wouldn’t need a new law to do this all they would need to do is enforce the law which is one of the major problems with Africa laws aren’t usually enforced and when they are it’s done often for political goals instead of justice furthermore it wouldn’t actually solve the problem at all. The way to solve the problem in the long term is to fix their system of governance so they can ensure all monies in the treasury are accounted for and are used for their intended purpose so that they can an environment in which people can well paying jobs, peace and dignity and in the term short term to put the parents in some skills training and ensuring the children don’t work in unsafe conditions instead of fining the poor parents.


The activists are natives not foreigners


yes it helps to cement in the citizen’s mind their control of the country, provides a way to gauge the strength of the opposition and sometimes a way to divide them as well
