Morning Caffeinated Idealistic Nonsense

"We will end poverty and stop HIV/AIDS within our generation when guided by African principles such as 'ubuntu' that underscore our interconnectedness. With greater compassion for others, we would no longer accept hunger and disease as facts of life."
– Cedza Dlamini

Wonderfully indicative of the Starbucks, liberal, yuppie philosophy: we can solve the world's problems with vague, feel-good ideas rather than concrete solutions. Of course the purpose is not to provide solutions, but rather to stimulate generic sensations of altruism in the consumer. As long as the plan for Africa remains charity over investment, sympathy over confidence, philosophy over solutions, Africa will never join the modern world and take care of those problems.

Ps I'm blogging on my phone during rehearsal, sweet!
