Gents and ladies, I have long advocated looking at South Africa,  Rhodesia and Argentina as examples of what is likely to happen.

Quick and dramatic?  Help will come.

Slow grind over years, nobody cares.

Bosnia? The UN and others stepped in and “helped”.

Rhodesia? 35 years later the jewel in the crown, the breadbasket that fed Africa is below cesspool levels.

South Africa?  22 years later, they’re headed down the same path as Rhodesia,  just faster in a lot of respects. And no help is forthcoming.

Look closely at the future in the past. Its not that far away, in either direction.
