Re: “Can We Afford to Help Haiti?

I agree with that it needs to stand on its own instead of being debt slaves to the IMF.

I was being sarcastic about feeling guilty about what our government has done. I feel anger, not guilt.

I feel similarly about Iran - we had no right to screw with those people, beginning in the 50's when the CIA overthrew their government.

The baseball industry has manufacturing in Haiti, Disney does as well (I think). I haven't been to Haiti.

I put the blame where it belongs, and we have been screwing with that country for a long time, which has not served to help the people.

People get raped all over the world. The function of a just government is to protect the innocent, to enforce contracts and to stop theft (among other things), not overthrow governments to help businesses.

We elect corrupt jerks all the time - should another country come in and overthrow our government because of it?

Re: “Can We Afford to Help Haiti?

A nice little article:

So I guess the question is: Do we as American citizens feel guilty enough about what our government has done to the Haitians to help them?

Re: “Can We Afford to Help Haiti?

@ teeth and anyone else confused about the situation:
Haiti is poor because of our government and the World Bank. We need them poor so our companies can exploit the cheap labor. Haiti was doing fine until our government engineered a coup and basically kidnapped Aristide, an elected leader who was more liberty minded than many of our own politicians.
