we may have many tangential discussions about the root of our poverty; but the main truth which is the most revelant is this:
firstly, we have not made a systematic effort to identify early on individuals with high mental aptitudes. why is that important for the objective progress of a nation? history proves time and time again that the salvation of a nation lies with its most capable members, those with emotional, psychological, and intellectual advantages above the average mean. in other words, what we have to do is fostering our most capable brothers and sisters by creating environments conducive to the full expression of their potential.
one way to do that is to divert some funds from "kantin", and invest them rather in the creation of libraries, cultural centers, and academic based-institutes.
"kantin" only has short-term benefits and treats only temporarily the roots of poverty whereas those other investments have far-reaching and long-term benefits. not only does "kantin" have very short-term benefits, but it also can create a depency complex among the recipients. In other words, if the state simply allows people to just come and eat and go, then the state only deepens the problem. the state can give away food but with some paternalistic requirements. for example, the state can require single mothers to watch a 30-minute documentary on child psychology before getting the meal, or a young man or woman to keep a journal on many daily subjects to be submitted at the end of every month.


secondly, we need to start a program of science demystification. the new global culture is scientific, and to compete in it, one needs to understand the mechanism of that culture.

thirdly, a reevaluation of ancestral history is important.
one way to start is "timbuktu" in mali. many people may not know this: after moroccan raiders pillaged this center of learning in the 16th century and stole and burned many books, 300,000 manuscripts survived; and these manuscripts treat all kinds of subjects from philosophy to astronomy.
now, imagine, if a city managed to salvage 300,000 manuscripts after a pillaging raid, then there must have been at least a million books before the raid.

conclusion, it is one thing to be insulted by racist comments, but it is another thing to prove them wrong.

Because we do not have the education necessary to produce enough goods and services to sustain the bureaucracy that is consuming our meager ressources and to feed 8 milions people.That is as simple as that ,my brother.We 're governed by the most repugnant elite in the world which prefers to hide their money in foreign banks instead of keeping it in the country for our economic growth.

We are poor because we do not invest in good education that produces doers.We look down at our peasants and workers ;we do not pay them enough money for them to become agent of economic development.whereas they(workers and peasants) are the backbone of the economy ,our speculators prefer to exploit them,paying them less than 2 dollars for a 10 hours of hard work, 75 % of haitians are living with less than 2 dollars a day .whereas our politicians and bureaucrats are siphoning the money of the treasury.We are poor because our engineers ,our doctors ,our nurses, our accountants, our lawyers prefer to imigrate instead of staying in their country because the politicians do not respect their rights.

Reading Calrence Thomas's book:"my grand father's son"I was pleased to learn how his grand father was able to pay for his grand sons education with the fruits of a piece of land that he , his brothers and sisters inherited from their parents ;they never partake the land.The grand father became a salesman selling kerosene because he refused to work for a white man.In my own family I can see why we are not producing enough food anymore. My grand grand father left a big peice of land for his children;instead of keeping the land as it was ;they separate it among themselves.;and when their lot can not produce enough food to sustain their family; they sold it.This is the reason why most of them died in proverty.Fortunately for some they had a chance to emigrate to the United States.

Keen,

The legendary city-state of Timbuktu (Mali) was not the only center of learning South of the Sahara.There were also the city states of GAO,JENNA etc with hundreds of libraries and thousands of students.
People came from all over ,as far as Europe ,to study at these centers of learning.

Those scholars produced books which are still in use in certain Muslim countries.
