“Aid is just a stopgap,” he said. “Commerce [and] entrepreneurial capitalism take more people out of poverty than aid. We need Africa to become an economic powerhouse.”

How much time has Bono gone around in the third world trying to fix black and brown people? Sorry but when whites behave this way, it strikes me as very insulting. Really, they don't know what their challenges are and they need some Irish big mouth to come along and tell them?

What in the hell is this ****?

Informing people about proven public health policy is patronizing?? I wonder what the people who are not whithering from a horrible AIDS related death would say about our patronizing...

Regulated capitalism works fine. Laissez faire capitalism is a disaster.

BTW, you might want to google Bono's background a bit. He's a member of the conservative party in Ireland and has spent a whole lot more time working with American Republicans. If he was an American, he'd be a Republican. So the juvenile thrust of your thread is basically stupid.

When I see him on TV, he's acting like a lefty and playing the great white patron. He's a mockery. I've never given enough of a **** to dig into his background.

There's a section in the later chapters that tells what good buddies Dubya and Bono are.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Teach a man to maximize his profits by offering fish to the market and you have a new job creator and fish supplier to feed the community for a lifetime.

Actually, no. Socialism is by definition

Definition of SOCIALISM


1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods


2 a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done
