African Aid

Instead of serving their people, most African states function as vehicles for the self-enrichment of political elites that have inherited none of the public-spiritedness of their colonial predecessors but all of the latter's contempt for the African masses. The remedy, therefore, might be to let Africa's failing neocolonial states disintegrate totally -- so that organic African political structures can emerge.
That is from today's LA Times piece by Edward N. Luttwak, Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Marian L. Tupy, Cato Institute's Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity.
