    The statistics are worthless. In the West, we support old farts from dying. If the same stress was to take place on the youth of Africa, everything would collapse. They’re as pathetic as they are with all the aid from us.

    Oh, and it’s funny that the only reason they catch up is because we’re being stupid and because we’re willing to share technological progress. Still, interesting video.
