I think that one thing that some people are failing to look critically at when they compare the Apartheid conditions of South Africa with the post-Apartheid conditions, and indeed anytime any permutation of the words "Africa was better off under colonial rule" are written, spoken, or thought, is that we know from history that colonial rule creates this kind of violent, conflicted reality, and that it is almost an inevitable aftermath of colonialism. Much like beating and abusing a child may create a sociopath, disrupting and oppressing a culture creates a fragmented, damaged culture with sociopathic elements.
We KNOW the damage that colonialism and occupation wreak. They create profoundly complicated situations that will take centuries to correct, if they are correctable. There is no simple answer.
You managed to kill the nougat monster yet?
I did. I used the octopus king's crown with obsidian, no weapon, and cast obsidian wall as soon as I came in. I let the octopus kings build up so he had to fight through an army of them to get to me. Eventually one dropped behind him and woke him up, and I started casting black demons.
Nailed his candy ass.
A fourth target, who argues that “the U.S. brought the 9/11 attacks on itself”
Interesting angle there, you mad bastard.
I'm not sure I'll ever get to that point, because I believe in the creative ability of humans to generate their own meaning, which puts me in the Absurdist realm. But you stated your POV quite well.
