The Sudanese peace-talks are a symbol of the conflict

between huminatarian issues and monetary interests. Support from foreign powers

is a rarity for governments such as Sudan, which are constructed namely

upon massive oil revenues and vicious black markets allegedly sponsored by

local and state governments. The hands of the world powers could certainly aid

these failing governments, but such aid would be sorely received by those

foreign government's peoples, in the thought that aiding, rather than stopping,

corrupt governments is corrupt altogether.

    On the other hand, reprimands for the serious

humanitarian follies from foreign administrations would conflict with the

investments in those African countries, namely those of oil and black markets.

The furs market all over Africa is booming and

drug-trafficking has always been profitable. The black market is successful

because of the poverty that infests those countries, in a simple way. Those

countries have incredibly weak currencies, and black market products are

usually bought, in the end, by those carrying strong currencies like the U.S.

dollar. The strong foreign currency is then exchanged for local currency and

put into the hands of those that control the black markets, in quantum amounts

because of the exchange rate that favors them. Keep those countries at a steady

rate of poverty, and whoever controls the black market will always see huge

revenues and profit from that favorable exchange rate. Then there’s profit-sharing,

that with the corrupt governments. Governments are given money from the black

market, in exchange for virtual immunity. Governments want this constant flow

of money, so they don’t support reform that would seriously better the nation,

lift the poverty and strengthen their currency. It’s an effective and simple

business, but it is at the cost of the people.

    In a usual situation, the people eventually rise and

rebel, as they have been in Africa for

decades. Africa is a unique case, though. There

are still hoards or rebels, but they are weak in both their living conditions

and their equipment. The rich and corrupt governments easily quell these

uprisings. Money is still filtered into these governments, so rebel armies must

resort to other efforts to fund. Many go to the black marketing in order to

hold funds, and eventually fall into pattern of profit-sharing with the same

governments they rebel against. Those that don’t go to the black market usually

have little funding, and are weak in effect. The strong bands that aren’t

corrupt yet are still strong are ineffective in their numbers. Nobody will

sufficiently help the latter. Not their governments, certainly not foreign

governments, and even their compatriots turn on them as they’re interests shift

from freedom to monetary concerns. The only way to stop the system and bring

about positive change is for someone to throw a big wrench into its engine, and

keep it there, or some miraculous joining of the peoples and a complete and

effective overthrow that isn’t led by drug-trafficking leaders who look to

basically run the system rather than reform it.

kind of stuff randomly. Mostly hip-hop, but I sometimes recommend some other

genres. Really depends on the state of mind the herb has me in.
