Trenchtown and Sinking Into the Ground

Mood: Propagandish
[Toot!] Index: 0.3

Communism Bit: On
Location: Job, of course, but written at ho
me

I'm listening to what must be the strongest affirmation of love for the slums ever trapped on a music record, and I felt I should let these pictures out. I took these pictures, of a Kampala slum built upon shaky ground. Literally.

See that there house, the one to the left? I failed to get something against which to scale it. But believe me when I tell you it is so short that the clothes line over there ends at a level above its roof line. It is uninhabited, because it sunk into the ground after a while of habitation, and it was abandoned.
I walked through this slum and noticed that all the houses were short, most shorter than myself.


Or, see this one. The men standing next to it can give a sense of scale. Or the size of its doors. Or if you compare it to the newer one to the right. Or if you look for where the wall should meet the ground. It is sinking into the ground.

See that one. The woman, seated, is higher than the window. Standing her full (even though modest) height, she would be at the roof's level. Nobody builds things that short. That house sunk into the ground. It is still inhabited, because it was cheaper to move the door higher (even higher than the ventilators) than to move out. (It is also quite patched, to the left.) The newer one to the left—yes, people insist on building here, where the Curse is clearly working—gives all the scale we need.

This one, to the right. The woman seated in the door-way of the newer one to the left is at the same height as the door of the one to the right. It has sunk into the ground.

Need I go on? No. But will I go on? Yes.

Can you spot the one that has sunk beyond hope?

Some don't need a scale. The air around the house, the neighbourhood, tells you that this one already succumbed to the Curse and sank into the ground.
The one whose doors were raised and raised and raised until they were about to go through the roof, and migration was not to be avoided: the house has sunk into the ground.

I have more pictures, but that will be all, for now. The houses that sunk into the ground.
Now, if I were one of them idealistic, finger-pointing pharisees, I'd let fly with a line about how `this government' is `not doing enough' to answer `the real questions, the real needs of its people', and how that is a sign of `bad governance', and maybe something like `corruption' and how `appalling' the `state of public housing in this country' is, and how we have an `irresponsible housing ministry' in `this country' and the like. I don't know about you, but there is nearly nothing I hate like those kinds of things. Most of the government criticism I see is just someone trying to sound smart by subscribing to groupthink and `demanding action' from `this government' with carefully-chosen phrases that sound educated and accustomed to expecting better things from the government. It's all shitty pretence, if you ask me. These fake bleeding hearts don't give a fuck about how we be down in our ghettos, and their newspaper columns, papers, books, blogs, radio shows, et cetera are really just an attempt at sounding smart enough for the rest of us. If you want a perfect government, die and get the fuck out of here: there are no problems in Heaven. The rest of us will choose to see these things as our challenges, and act like it, rather than as government failures and sit and whine.
(It's not my theme today, but I may not get another chance to strike out at them, those pretenders who have more failures in their bathrooms than any government can make in a year, yet who still feel the need to become the Jesus who never errs and is therefore fit to judge a whole fucking government. News: no single person, not even you, can be smarter than an entire government, however flawed it may be. So shut up, please, I already know what you want to say, and no government is so homogenously-blind as not to have anyone within it see what you are about to reveal long before you are aware of it.)

:o) I get healed by a nice, long rant. It's like a shower at noon. Now, I can carry on.
From those pictures, you can see that this government is clearly, visibly, not doing nearly enough to answer the real questions, the real needs of its people. Of course this is a sign of bad governance (what with all that disease-level corruption). Nothing else can result in this. It's shocking how appalling the state of public housing is in this country. We are just cursed with an irresponsible housing ministry in this coutry. It's obscene.

These pictures have one thing in common (besides being in the same geographical location): the people who stay in these houses work the hardest in Kampala. The law of life is that ye shall of the sweat of thy brow eat (eeewww). Yet they sweat the most and eat the least. Those who sweat the least eat the most. It's hard to think of this stuff and not feel the blazing red Communist in you rise to the front. This stuff is worse than, say, apartheid, because apartheid, at least, had people protesting everyday. There were armed rebels, even. (I'm proud that my country officially hosted these gallant warriors of Umkhonto we Sizwe, when it became too perilous for the fight to be lower south. Amandla!)
What we have here is a Capitalist system that is just as bad, even worse, than the Sud Afrikaan "Apart-ness". We pretend there is no segregation problem between rich and poor, and yet? And yet we do have our very own "apart-hood". Some people are isolated by the Capitalist structure, they are given only enough to keep them alive to fuck and make kids. Those kids are carefully isolated to be turned into the next suffering class.

The worst nightmare of the Blacks during apartheid must have been waking up and finding that every country in the world had implemented apart-hood, and that it had become the _accepted_ norm. They wouldn't even have a Uganda to run to. But that reality faces the poor among us, the poor us, because the whole world is a Capitalist system, and we have nowhere to run to. (Cuba, North Korea, yes, but the Capitalists hate us, so they starve us and kill our women and children. They say different sexual orientations are okay, but different economic ideologies are bad—we should all be one `correct' thing: Capitalists.)
This accepted inequality has burnt the hope of the majority of us, down there. Not the inequality, but the fact that it is accepted. Many of us down there even accept our poverty fate, much the same way Blacks in some places are still convinced they are inferior. We are being sunk into the fucking ground by you Capitalists. Literally. Maybe they should wait for our Revolution? At least there are those of us who are not resigned to this fate, and we are willing and able to fight. If it's already a fight to just be alive, why not let it be a fight to become alive?

In the Mosaic Law, in the Old Testament, there was something called the Year of Jubilee. Every forty years, all property bought was returned, all slaves freed, all land bought returned to the previous owners. The point was to reverse the detrimental (even devilish) effect of Capitalism in that society. So, if you got poor for some reason, it would only be until the next Year of Jubilee, and then there would be a Revolution—backed by the Torah—to restore Communist sanity. (I find that the Bible is shockingly-Communist, for a book held in high regard by the diabolical Capitalists. Jesus' move with the fish and loaves, for one example, was a concrete Communist act: from boy according to capacity, to crowd according to need. Et cetera, et cetera. Even: from Jesus according to capacity, to humanity according to need.)

But this has already got too long.

The slum is built on a swamp, hence the sinking.
Trenchtown, the slum where Bob grew up, had a big trench from which the name comes. The patterns among sufferers wherever Capitalism won are quite stunningly-similar. From apartheid South Africa to the slums of Kampala. The suffering, the creativity, the eternity of the human spirit. Slums are inspiring, because the are the face of Survival. (Survival also happens to be the name of the album that carries the loudest protests against this self-same unfairness.)
I've run out of space and time, but here is some part of the inspirational song:

Oh, my head.
In desolate places we'll find our bread.
And everyone see what's taking place.
Oh, another page in history.

But I'm from Trenchtown.
Most of them come from Trenchtown.
We free the people with music.

They say it's hard to speak.
They feel so strong to say we're weak.
But through the eyes, the love of our people.
Oh, they've got to repay.

We come from Trenchtown!
They say, `Can anything good come out of Trenchtown?'
That's what they say.
Say, we're the under-priviledged people,
So they keep us in chains.
Pay, pay tribute to Trenchtown!

Just because we come from (Trenchtown).
Just because we come from (Trenchtown).

- Bob Marley (Trenchtown from the post-humous Confrontation album.)

Sucker Cheri, this post is mine!

@27th: You'll never guess what I bought today. Balzac! It's completely beguiling. Oh, what's wrong with your face 27th?? It seems to be going green with envy!

Asda said...

Communism has done nothing but increase and entrench poverty-make it even more impossible to escape. Unless of course you are Dear Leader, then you get to ride around from palace to palace in your maseratis, cruising past your detention camps and such, ignoring the food shortages around you, while you sip Chablis and munch on lobster..

Peace said...

I learn something new about the slums each time I visit my brilliant sweetheart. He works hard. With his hands. Earns little. Painful to watch him struggle.

You'll turn me into a communist yet!

am so glad you are back! i was reading the naked in the rain thing and looking at your crib too

Is the camera yours or were you borrowing it?

comrade 27th, in that third picture, i failed to spot the woman, or the house to the left...

Duksey said...

I think we should have an award for blogger with the longest posts and we all know who will take it.

I feel for people who have to live this way, sometimes it makes me feel guilty for living under better conditions.

Mudamuli Ntikita Ntikita said...

I read everything, word for word and I felt sad.

gayuganda said...

I read somewhere- never you mind where- that the staunchiest revolutionary is a conservative the day after the revolution.

Wonder, would 27th qualify?

Ok, the post is long. But wow, did love the pics, and the rant, and almost finished reading the less effusive wordage. Almost.

SO. What I mean, before I forget, where are the sock and boots... And did deTamble abuse or compliment? Seems as if there is a part of the conversation that is ongoing and unheard...

Never mind gay old me!

DeTamble said...

@GUG: It was neither an abuse or a compliment. Ongoing and unheard.

Rae said...

the longest post I ve read to the end! and I comment:
1. those slums are owned by landlords who know whereas land appreciates in value, people may not, so dont buildings
2. its time to work smarter not harder
3. Hip hop and ragae come from the ghettos, what will come from these slums?
4. for the sinking houses, wait till you the raised pit latrines!

~ScotchBiscuits~ said...

depressing to say the very least. just what I need to see when I get my whinny mood going.
The photography is amazing.

gayuganda said...

hey dude communist,

a gal would love to have your address. Dunno why, maybe your rants are gaining attention. She says it aint here, so she has asked you to send it via my email.

God's truth!

DeTamble said...

Didn't think Communist Revolutionaries had time for love...

The 27th Comrade said...

@Asda: Yeah, and Capitalism has done nothing but remove poverty, right? You should be from the suffering 80% of the world, sometime. Then you'll see if Capitalism is good.
Forget what the Communist leaders do. Why doesn't anybody mention me (or Jesus, or family heads) when citing examples of Communist leaders? Why is it always those that you've been told are bad? It's all just unfortunate bulverism.
Consider what you Capitalists do: you get to ride around from palace to palace in your Maserattis, cruising past your wage slaves and slummers, ignoring the suffering around you, while you sip Chablis and munch on lobster.
And that's a whole legion of you.

@Peace: Men from the slums are the last surviving Men. Believe this. And not because I'm from there, too. But it may have contributed ... ;o)

@Princess: I'll sign you up for the Party already! :o)

@Antipop: I think you mean the 4th picture. Yeah, the lighting was poor, but if you squint ... :o) She's in there, in the doorway, shadowed.

@Duksey: I'd give that award to DM. :o) I don't know, it wore me out to just write that much. I don't think I'll be doing it again, though.

@MNN: You can just join the Party and get a gun ... :o)

@GUG: Well, there was this, said about Mikhail Bakunin: "Before the Revolution, he's precious. The day after, he has to be shot." Or something.

@Rae: Thanks a bunch. You know, people would work smarter ... if they had the chance. But they've been turned into slave classes. No working smart, just hard.
And there was what looked like a raised latrine, but it was too distant for a good shot. (Aren't these the slums from which I'll come? Gwahahaha.)

@Scotchie: Thanks. Meanwhile, sign a petition to got Tumwijuke to teach me more of the Art.

@GUG: I've never really been able to trust my match-making to gay guys ... :o) Then again, logic insists you can trust them better, no?

@DeTamble: They don't? That's news! :-o And then when you say the opposite, I'll react the same way. :o)

Asda said...

You are just being absurd! It is a fact so plain and obvious that it embarrasses me to repeat it here that the nations with the least poverty have thriving market economies.

Meanwhile every place communism has set its poison foot it has left shortage and oppression and hunger!

By the way, when I talked of Maseratis above, I was not speaking rhetorically. You dont seem to know much about North Korea, but Kim Jong Il is a notorious gourmand, who keeps fleets of luxury cars and has at least five large palaces around the nation. Tales abound of the excessiveness of his taste! He likes to dines on exotic imported dishes off golden plates, and drinks posh wines by the gallon. George Bush and Tony Blair could only dream of living as well!

Meanwhile, due to a man-made famine caused by cock ups in the planned economy, Korth Korea has been dependent on food aid for the past decade. Reports abound of entire communities, generations stunted by malnourishment! And this is not to mention the entire families who are systematically starved in prison camps for not kissing the “Dear Leader’s” butt hard enough.

They are not joking when they say he is one of the evillest men alive.
Now, you just tell me that this is imperialist propaganda and I give you a lesson on propaganda vs corroborated sources of information.

gayuganda said...

errrr Asda,

on somethings like that, like a true revolutionary and believer, err, does not see eye to eye with you there.

I predict that you will not agree to the plain obvious facts as he presents them. And of course he will not agree to yours.

me, I sit back and watch, tail wagging, waiting for more entertainment...

gug

The 27th Comrade said...

@GUG: Watch. :o)

@Asda: Sorry, I had not seen this comment. I'm not that frequent in my comments section.

"it embarrasses me to repeat it here that the nations with the least poverty have thriving market economies."
Yes, of course they do. Market economies, anyway, predate your country. They've been here since before any language we use today was extant. That there are thriving market economies is not a point in and of itself.
It is worth it to see what these market economies have done to the less-fortunate people in the market relationship. Market economies are about fucking up one person for your profit. I don't care how well-off America or Uganda may be. I care about the people within these "thriving market economies" are. The poor people, that is. I'm not going to excuse slave trade, apartheid, raiding Iraq, et cetera, because there happen to be thriving market economies somewhere. Or are you going to live in denial about the fact that Capitalism is why we have the things of which I speak in the previous sentence?

"Meanwhile every place communism has set its poison foot it has left shortage and oppression and hunger!"
Um ... you seem to be one of the millions of people who say "Communism" when they mean "20th Century Communism". I mean, as an example, your family is a Communist setting. Father and Mother are the Dear Leaders, and the children are taken care of, and they do as they are told to help out, et cetera. Is that bad Communism? Do you make the children work before they can eat? From each according to capacity, to each according to need. You are what you say is bad. You are a Communist. :o)
But let's look at that sentence. That Communism leaves shortage, oppression and hunger in its wake. Well, let's not count your family, of course, and look at the world. You are one of the people who will make the claim that Iraq, slave trade, et cetera were because of Capitalism? Do you know I am starving right now, because of the unfair trade between Africa and America? Is that a result of Communism, or Capitalism? Why do you Capitalists only look at your fat bellies and Maseratis and say Capitalism is working, and not look outside into your slave quarters? Are you sure Capitalism has not brought shortage, hunger, suffering? Where are you living? Which history do you read?
More-importantly, why do you overlook the fact that the West has perpetuated a war situation with many Communist coutries, Cuba has blockades and trade sanctions, the West bullies the world into not trading with DPRK, and then when there is any small instance of lack, you point the fingers the wrong way. You Capitalists are killing women and children and pointing fingers the wrong way. Meanwhile every place Capitalism has set its poison foot, it has left shortage, oppression and hunger!

"By the way, when I talked of Maseratis above, I was not speaking rhetorically."
By the way, when I talked of Maseratis above, I was not speaking rhetorically, either. Did it look rhetorical, what I wrote? Just look outside your window right now! There are the people who washed the Maserati on that road outside is going to hold his dying daughter and watch her go cold, for lack of money. The guy with Maserati is smoking a cigar right now, a cigar that could, alone, have saved the girl's life. I was not being rhetorical.

"You dont seem to know much about North Korea, but Kim Jong Il is a notorious gourmand, who keeps fleets of luxury cars and has at least five large palaces around the nation."
You dont seem to know much about the relationship between the rich and poor, the West and (say) Africa, but the rich are notorious gourmands, who keep fleets of luxury cars and have more large palaces around the world than they can ever live in in one lifetime.
They like to dine on exotic imported dishes off golden plates, and drink posh wines by the gallon. Marie-Antoinette could only dream of living as well!

Meanwhile, due to the same system that makes them rich, the poor are literally sinking into the ground since the beginning of time. Everyone knows of entire continents, generations stunted by malnourishment, exterminated, killed, plundered, robbed. And this is not to mention the entire families who are systematically segregated against for not having been born in the right caste, race, or monetary class.

We are not joking when we say Capitalism is the most-evil thing under the Sun. Now, you just tell me that this is Communist propaganda and I give you a lesson on propaganda vs corroborated sources of information.

Also, you tend to make it look like I should believe everything Newsweek writes about The Dear Leader. Yeah, right, and I'll believe what Bush has to say about WMDs and the Middle East. And I'll believe what those slave drivers have to say about the people they like to bully. By simple logic, you should not trust anything one says about an enemy. I've seen so much misinformation, disinformation, and big lies about me and where I live to not trust a single line from the West, either about me or about, in general, the people who dare to tell the West to shut the fuck up.
Also, tell me your Western leaders are seated on the sidewalks with their veterans and the slaves that survived the lynchings, then we can start to compare notes. Until then, you are only accusing the Dear Leader of doing what you yourself do.

up to you asda!!!

DeTamble said...

Wow, 27th. You've done it again. I always wondered why you were so communist, I too thought maybe you've never read about North Korea properly. But now I know not only did you do that but you saw the rest of the world for what it is too. And just when I thought you couldn't amaze me any more.

The 27th Comrade said...

@DeTamble: Whenever you see blind hate for Communism or the Dear Leader, you are looking at someone who has only seen one viewpoint on this issue, yet still feels he/she has seen the truth.

I think I've read and watched more about North Korea than most people I'll meet. I've watched things from both sides. The reason for the difference between me and them, as regards to how we react to DPRK and the Dear Leader is that I hold these self-righteous, haughty Capitalists up to an equally-haughty, self-righteous standard, and they fail dismally, worse than any Communist leader in history, ever.

DeTamble said...

:-)

Asda said...

Oh, gosh! Where does one even start!



Okay, let me repeat for the cheap seats:



You say we need to reduce poverty and that we should do this by adopting communism and shunning capitalism. I hear you and ask myself: Should we use capitalism or communism? Well, I say, let us look around and see what those who have successfully reduced poverty have done.
The highest standards of living and the lowest poverty rates are all found in countries with rich market economies, I point out. And then I look at the countries that have tried communism. All of them failed miserably.

My conclusion is that we should go market, not state control!!

You yourself do not dispute that commu—okay. That “20th Century Communism” has only made bad situations worse and caused more suffering . I am glad you didn’t try to defend East Germany, the USSR and North Korea.



This whole things sounds like a bad play!

27th comrade: “Communism will remove poverty.”

Me: “No it won’t it will only make it worse.”

You: “No, when I say communism, I don’t mean communism. I mean fathers and their children and stuff... (and then a vague and open-ended allegory that illustrates nothing.


Really!!


But you don’t stop there, you go on in even more inane circles, saying all sorts of absurd stuff like:



1. You can’t mention unfair trade between Africa and States to defend communism against capitalism. Trade barriers and quotas and protectionist practices are tools of the trade for the COMMUNIST. Africans are begging FOR FREE MARKET APPROACHES to make trade fair!!



2. I don’t understand you. How you seem so outraged about slavery, and third world poverty etc, but you can’t muster the same outrage against Kim’s gross atrocities, or Stalin’s or those typical of communist dictators! People starve but these guys STARVED THEM ON PURPOSE! It was a deliberate policy to starve them!!!!

You are angry that the capitalist smokes cigars while the poor man washes his Maserati? Yet that is EXACTLY what I told you KIM JONG IL DOES!! You think he washes his own Maseratis?

Donald Trump never took an oath of office. Unlike Kim, it isn’t Trumps job to feed the poor. THE FACT REMAINS that Kim Jong Il lives like a rappper WHILE HIS PEOPLE STARVE!!! So how do you mention him when talking about communism eradicating poverty

And why can’t you be angry about the victims of the Soviet Gulags? Those who starved or were murdered under Mao? If you are outraged by opulence in the face of starvation, please, become a priest, don’t start supporting communists!


3. You said “make it look like I should believe everything Newsweek writes about The Dear Leader. Yeah, right, and I'll believe what Bush has to say about WMDs and the Middle East.”

What on earth are you talking about? Skeptiscism is good, but you also have to know how to apply it. Newsweek is one of the papers THAT REPORTED THE LIES ABOUT WMDS, the intelligence failures in Iraq, the mistakes of the Bush administration and so on. HAVE you ever even read any of these newspapers you disparage? Bush administration is constantly complaining about media being hostile to them! Meanwhile, North Korean media is ALL RIGIDLY STATE-CONTROLLED used to perpetuate the absurd personality cult of the leader. Don’t believe newsweek if you don’t want to but DON’T BELIEVE KOREA CENTRAL NEWS AGENCY!!



PLUS: The stories of Kim’s atrocities come from escapees and defectors and people who saw them face to face, the lucky few who managed to escape alive to tell the tale. If they are not true, why does Kim not let us see for ourselves what Korea is like? Why doesn’t he allow free media? Why doesn’t he allow outsiders to come and investigate? Why is he so secretive? What is he trying to hide? He is afraid that we will find out that the claim to be the “Greatest Saint Who Rules With All Magnanimity” is not the only lie he has been trying to sell the world!



5: I don’t judge success of poverty alleviation by looking at Maseratis and fat bellies. I judge success by numbers. Welfare indicators like infant mortality, life expectancy, education, healthcare, HDI figures etc. Especially when they are provided by reputable researcher and not by governments. It is those numbers that tell me things are working in Norway and Canada and Australia, while the fall of the Iron Curtain revealed how messed up all the Communist countries were.


You say you have seen much misinformation. Well I bet you have. And you are using this blog to spread it around. You are misinformed about communism, my friend. I recommend that you turn away from misinformation and try to find some INFORMATION. I mean, that you try to do some research and learn about these issues you talk about.

You say you have read more than most? I don't believe you. Cite sources and prove.

The 27th Comrade said...

Hi, Asda. :o)

You say that Communist governments failed to eliminate poverty. Well, I want to point out a few things to you: there is poverty in market economies, as well. The poverty in Communist economies is often historical. You see, people would not back a Communist revolution unless they are poor enough to be maltreated by Capitalism (like the Maserati washer I talk about).
More-importantly, I already told you that you people only look at Communist economies that you have put in a war situation with blockades and sanctions, real economic sieges, and then say their economies are not working.
Do you know that the West would cease to exist, if it was subjected to the same economic sieges for just one week? There has never been a comparison of Communist and market economies that wasn't severely marred by these unfairnesses. But I can give you one: look at the American economy - a market economy - during the Great Depression. That was a market economy in a worse state than any Communist economy ever. And without even having a whole swathe of the world actively trying to starve it.

'You: “No, when I say communism, I don’t mean communism. I mean fathers and their children and stuff... (and then a vague and open-ended allegory that illustrates nothing.'

In shows something. I mean that there is more Communism than you think. Communism is not synonymous with "Communist government". Your family is a Communist setting. That allegory illustrates that Communism works more-often than it doesn't work, and we take the common homestead as an example. It's sad you missed the point. I should have been this verbose from back then, I think.

"You can’t mention unfair trade between Africa and States to defend communism against capitalism. Trade barriers and quotas and protectionist practices are tools of the trade for the COMMUNIST. Africans are begging FOR FREE MARKET APPROACHES to make trade fair!!"

Wrong. And I see this a lot. The point is that we - Africa - have a market relationship with the West. And the West is, here, the rich guy with the Maserati. For the frame in which you are thinking, we are the peasant farmer, and the West is the rich man. We are in a market relationship with them. Had this all been in one country, you'd see that the situation is exactly what makes a market economy bad for the poor. It perpetuates the disadvantagedness.
I hear people saying that the unfair trade thing is a Communist-style "controlled market" thing, that it goes against the "free market", and therefore what is wrong with it shows what is wrong with Communist approaches. Excuse me, when was it ever a tenet of Communism to defend the wealthy, lazy Western farmers from competition? The protectionism is built out of the other hand of Capitalism: oppressing the poor to retain wealth (where the other hand is oppressing the poor to amass wealth). Unfair trade is a Capitalist thing.


"I don’t understand you. How you seem so outraged about slavery, and third world poverty etc [...] People starve but these guys STARVED THEM ON PURPOSE! It was a deliberate policy to starve them!!!!"

I'll turn around and say the slaves were shipped on purpose, as well. It was a deliberate policy to steal them and enslave them. I show more outrage for that, because it was meant to perpetuate an evil that no sane human can excuse. I'll get the time to talk about Stalin's policies, but don't forget that I'll talk about the lynchings of the West, in the same breath, and also about Guantanamo Bay, and the support for Apartheid that the West showed, all of which, put together, dwarf anything Stalin may have done. I'd not like to live in Stalin's Russia. But much less be a muslim in the West, for example.

"You are angry that the capitalist smokes cigars while the poor man washes his Maserati? Yet that is EXACTLY what I told you KIM JONG IL DOES!! You think he washes his own Maseratis?"

And I'm saying you, you yourself, are doing what you accuse Kim Jong-il of doing. You.
You are living like rappers, in the West, while your brothers starve under your weighty tables. I know you didn't take an oath of office, but don't complain when they rise up.

You tell me you don't believe the KCNA, because they are for the State. Then you tell me you believe the escapees, knowing that they are against the State.
Does that add up?

You said you judge development by the HDI, and that the West beats Communist economies at it. Well, I already covered this in the first paragraphs. For one, I have real issues with metrics used in the HDI. But more-importantly, the pillaging Westh can't be blamed for having more of what it is stealing from us, can it? If the HDI measures how much of X they have, and they are disadvantaging us for X, then they'll definitely be above us.
But look at Cuba's health system, for example. Or DPRK's education system. These are things that have stood up to the economic sieges of the West, and are therefore good things to measure against. And the West trails in these same fields.

"You say you have read more than most? I don't believe you. Cite sources and prove."

I'd need a week and a gigabayte. :o)
