Neglected Africa and world responsibility

Equin0x
By Equin0x
While there is relatively peace on the globe, most of the African countries are reeling under acute poverty, and perhaps the world have forgotten them, left them as aliens, which is a mistake for future world peace when this gap would become massive between the rich and poor countries, that would set the stage of rich and poor class war. There is therefore a responsibility on the well off countries to promote developmental projects in Africa as well, that could help lift them out of poverty and sufferings. This gesture shall have the potential to become self rewarding for the countries taking interest in Africa which is home to huge un-taped resources.

Every nation has bad and good phases. Europe suffered by wars, diseases and poverty for many centuries, until they came out, came out with the help of US. Most of the human history, India, China and most of Asia remained prosperous for 18 centuries. Every nation has its own strengths and weaknesses but that does not mean that external support is meaningless, though it is correct that primary responsibility rests on the African countries in the 1st place, yet they have fallen in deep hole, where from external support can take them out faster. A few multi national companies or rich countries can make entire Africa shine, if a few mega projects are implemented.

I'm Sulieman, I thought I would pop back and see if there are any improvements.

Aid doesn't work, they need to sort it out themselves.

When the countries are failing, that means they at their own are unable to create success, and hence require guidance and support of others. After WW11, US financed to lift the entire Europe out of poverty, and helped them made what they are today. Take the example of Afghanistan, where dozens of countries are helping them, because they are no longer on other planet, rather are part and parcel of this global village where the world peace is and would be heavily relying on mutual sharing and support of each other.

Nigeria is rolling in money from their oil wealth, so maybe they should help their African brothers?

Or Angola could their mineral wealth to help?

Africa has been described as a continent with rich untapped raw resources. the lightening storm between the rich and the poor is not due to under development but due to negligence and poor management.They don't believe in themselves why need help from developed countries to develop their own? African's are well educated, have experts, Engineers of all sorts, Senior managers managing big companies in the world. When it comes for issues of managing their home resources, they will preferred to delegate persons with self and self-fish interest who lack moral decadent and forget about the people and focuses on investing the money to other European countries, etc.. If the Management of these African countries are organize following the standard of other developed countries believe me. they'll not cry for help from the develop world, they'll not ask for funds, even the poor will still be happy in their conditions, etc...................

So Equinox the richest countries in the world are probably, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE and Saudi these days. (Plus Norway). So will they help Africa? I doubt it.

They spend their time buying land in Africa pushing the natives off their ancestral homes so they can go hunting.

About the businesses who come for development what is forgotten about them is that they are there for business and not charity and so would take some profit from their investement which then becomes an eye sore for the residents and all problems start. Secondly not all businesses come with good intention. At times they can make your condition worse than what you have now in collusion with the people in the govt. The people better start working towards a good life themselves and dump all cheap tactics for making money, fighting amongst themselves, damaging the resources etc etc and make voted govts. responsible for their betterment rather than being there to siphon off the money to buy properties and lavish lifestyles in other countries. And this applies to all countries not only a particular country.

World is now a global village, where you have to share prosperity and poverty equally and if you leave some behind, do not help them come out of poverty trench (they themselves are failing to jump out), they are there to halt you half way sometimes sooner or later.

How can they sort it out themselves when they are starving and their no. 1 priority is providing food in their table? They just need, at least, support, a headstart...so when things are quite stable, they can do it by themselves.
