Ok… so I was having this ‘discussion’ over immigration, and I used Africa as an example of what happens when a whole continent is exploited to the extreme. The response that I got has me questioning the mental capacity of the adult white male (and I was just getting over my prejudice against you guys too).
Can anyone please reassure me that the ‘real world’ doesn’t only have moronic baboons? Here’s how part of our little conversation went:

The people are responsible for the government.
All throughout history, there has been rebellions and wars. People had the courage to sacrifice their lives to better their nations.
A government only stays in power if either the people support it, they are apathetic, or they are scared to rise up.
For example, when England ocupied India, they were greatly outnumbered. It doesnt matter that they had guns. And look what happend.
I bet if just 50 percent of a population rebelled, the government would crumble.[/quote]

Same goes for any lesser-developed country, because of course it’d be impossible for there to be outside forces. Tha’ts just crazy talk![/quote]
Sheesh… the stupidity of certain folk.
You seemed to have forgotten that India has close to 1 billion people, whereas England has less than 100,000,000… not to mention that it was an invading force and that it ruled there for a couple of centuries. It’s just so easy to drive people out, isn’t it? [/quote]
[quote]It is the Africans fault that their continent is messed up. They fight and kill each other over over silly issues. Its literally a warzone between the tribes. What part do you not understand? They are killing each other rather than cooperating. Learn history and start thinking more logically.
You are way too young to even grasp any knowledge of the world. I am bored right now that is prolly the only reason why I am typing this. You obviously never heard of the rawanda incedent or anthing else.
India has nearly 1 billion people. True, but they are poor as hell and they didnt have any type of weapons at all. Not even guns. Do you even know what happened?
The British was the most powerful empire at the time with the most advance army. Without the cooperation of the Indian people, the British simply couldnt impose their will. The fact is, many Indians were mascred and they still didnt stop. How many British were killed? Hmm prolly not that many.
How can a government have a country when there is no one alive to rule?
I am talking about a independent country. Not one country controlling another. How can an entire country be controlled by the goverment?
Its rather simple, brain wash them, terrorise them, or simply the people support it.
Outside forces? Its the druglords and corrupt officials within Mexico that runs the goverment.
You explain to me all knowing child, how is it that Mexico is so corrupt? I am not implying that all the people are bad because that is simply not the case. Why is it that evil prevails?
Evil only prevails in the absense of good (including apathy).
So how did Germany become such a force during WWII. Did the government just magically take over? Hmm… Poor germans… The goverment forced them into war… I mean its not their fault that the Jews were mascred while many of them turned a blind eye… Only a small percentage actually tried to make a difference.
How did Japan rise? Did the government simply take over the people or the people allowed it to happen?
How did the Roman government become corrupt? Why did the people allow the crazy Emperors like Nero and the petophilliac Empires before him rule?
Sometimes even the greatest empires are destroyed from within. It is the peoples fault.
Actually, I do not even know why I am bothering writing this… You clearly wouldnt understand and your a kid… Oh well, I will not try to make my point further.[/quote]
I won’t bother posting what I responded… it’s just scary to think that people like this exist in “the most powerful country in the world.”
And btw, I have nothing against people disagreeing with me. I respect people like rainjack and Rocsar, because they actually have like, you know, what’s the word? Oh yeah, common sense.
