    Too much poverty, disease, ecological crisis, and geopolitical neglect to save themselves


    The Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church says, "The poverty of billions of men and women is the one issue that most challenges our human and Christian consciences"

    As this article brings to fore, Africa may be past the point of no return. And who else will suffer the consequences but the Africans themselves, not us.

    So there they sit, stuck in neutral and sliding downhill. When they got off the "colonialism" train, having been brought roughly into the modern age from grass huts, the wheels came off. I also find myself going directly to blaming corruption and bad government. But it may not matter anymore what was the cause.

    The only recourse left is for them to suffer unto death or return to their tribes. Yet just enough modernism has been mixed in to prevent truly becoming primitive again.

    How can we save an entire continent? It will be slowly and as we are able, based on the strength of our Christian character and nothing else. And if not Christian, the servicing the remnants of Noblesse Oblige current during the Colonial days that we still hold responsibility to.
