Africa in Chaos | American Renaissance:
A review of Paul Theroux's attempt to travel through Africa, the hellhole of the planet.

"This is what the world will look like when it ends."

It echoes a famous piece in The Atlantic from 1994, which described and predicted this.
Robert D Kaplan in his heyday, with The Coming Anarchy.

A line I never forgot. " of the coup's leaders, Solomon Anthony Joseph Musa,...shot the people who had paid for his schooling, "in order to erase the humiliation and mitigate the power his middle-class sponsors held over him."

This will be the reward of all the fools who waste their "humanitarian" energies there.
