so far, not so good

This stuff is why I can't pay much attention to Africa. I know it proves my point about a good society making for no crime, and the ongoing extremity on that continent is a cultural anthropologist's dream nightmare, but it just never stops being too awful, always seeming to make the case for social Darwinists, and, well, much as I understand the causes for this stuff, I still can't quite abide that even abject poverty could induce sentient beings to act this way. I have to remember that there have been millennia full of the warring tribes way of dealing with things that leaves this sort of action still close to the surface, but, even so, I must not be tough enough or something....
