This is a story about Ethiopia, but it's been repeated all over the world for centuries.
Step 1: Make vast amounts of credit available to a select few
Step 2: Give the state (or some other criminal enterprise) ownership of all the land
Step 3: Deprive the people who've lived on and worked the land for centuries any meaningful help (even thought the resources exist and it would make economic sense to do so.)
Step 4: Take the people off the land and gunpoint or by "legal" means and warehouse them in concentration camps
Step 5: Give the land to bank-financed mutli-nationals (or other friends of the King) who then "give" the local people "jobs" at slave-like wages working land that used to belong to them.
Fact: Central American farm workers are far less nourished today in 2013 than they were in the 1950s when studies of their nutritional intake were first done. I'm sure similar stats can be found for every Third World agricultural region that's been "modernized."
How is this progress?
Poverty and starvation are manufactured. They are not a natural state of affairs.
