Are there too many people in the world? Does the world benefit from the large mass of people living in poverty? Even if every person living with conveniencies gave them up, would we have the resources to raise the standard of living of the impoverished people of the world? Should Africa be colonized (politically correct or not), could a profit be turned in the large areas of turmoil? Could Africa be a large producer of agriculture? Natural resources? Something else? The world has become much more civilized as time has passed, maybe a new colinization of Africa would be of benefit not only to the colonizers but to the people of the region. South Africa seems to be doing pretty well. Is this what we are doing in Iraq? Are "we" a national people or a worldwide people?
