Irish Paper: Africa is a black hole that gives nothing back – except AIDS.


CofCC.org News Team

The Irish Independent published a bombshell column on giving aid to African nations. The columnist describes his visit to Ethiopia and how foreign charities are only contributing to Africa’s skyrocketing demographic growth and perpetuating the problems.

During the Irish potato famine, the population of Ireland was decimated. During the past 25 years of so-called famine in Ethiopia the population has doubled!

He also talks about how the media is quick to vilify European and Asian countries, such as Germany, Japan, Vietnam, etc. However, criticism of Africa is off limits.

Irish Independent…

Alas, that wretched country is not alone in its madness. Somewhere, over the rainbow, lies Somalia, another fine land of violent, Kalashnikov-toting, khat-chewing, girl-circumcising, permanently tumescent layabouts.

Indeed, we now have almost an entire continent of sexually hyperactive indigents, with tens of millions of people who only survive because of help from the outside world.

This dependency has not stimulated political prudence or commonsense. Indeed, voodoo idiocy seems to be in the ascendant, with the next president of South Africa being a firm believer in the efficacy of a little tap water on the post-coital penis as a sure preventative against infection. Needless to say, poverty, hunger and societal meltdown have not prevented idiotic wars involving Tigre, Uganda, Congo, Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea etcetera.

So, how much sense does it make for us actively to increase the adult population of what is already a vastly over-populated, environmentally devastated and economically dependent country?

How much morality is there in saving an Ethiopian child from starvation today, for it to survive to a life of brutal circumcision, poverty, hunger, violence and sexual abuse, resulting in another half-dozen such wide-eyed children, with comparably jolly little lives ahead of them? Of course, it might make you feel better, which is a prime reason for so much charity. But that is not good enough.

For self-serving generosity has been one of the curses of Africa. It has sustained political systems which would otherwise have collapsed.
