Guess who’s building the Argentina-Chile tunnel in order to lock up the world’s supply of Lithium (ion batteries). Yes, I’m talking about your mobile phone—the one you love so much! It was in 1956 that we saw one of the first movies to depict a Christian missionary negatively. Guess who owns Kenya’s new railway. And Kenya’s port of Mombasa (which like Somalia and Yemen, was also named in Hebrew). Guess who owns Zambia’s international airport and its electrical power grid. I hope you’re seeing a pattern here because Our-Hate-America-Left does not. They are still myopically obsessed with Russia as the existential threat. Who has just built one of the longest bridges in Africa in the Congo? Hint: It wasn’t the Russians. The Congo possesses huge reserves of both uranium and natural gas. Guess who gets that now. Both Congos are more concerned about election fraud than we are. In 1900 Joseph Conrad published his wonderful novel set in the Congo, Heart of Darkness. Francis Ford Coppola based his movie Apocalypse Now on Conrad’s novel. Back then Africa was the 3rd-World. When I motorcycled through Africa in 1969, it was still the 3rd-World. It is no longer the 3rd-World. It is moving rapidly toward 1st-World conditions. The United States, however, is moving just as rapidly towards 3rd-World conditions. The New York Times in a rare burst of candor, called Los Angeles ‘capital of the third world.” I show you ten metrics including water, transportation, corruption, public hygiene, & tribalism that confirm that we are heading towards 3rd-World living. Acknowledging the problem is always the first step towards its solution.
