The amount is more than the serial number.

Many years ago (mid '80s), a coworker was telling me of a problem certain POCs had in South Dakota.  He said that the Native Americans that lived on a reservation near his college would need to leave the rez is they ever got decent jobs.  Otherwise, they were expected to "share" their "good fortune" with the rest of the tribe.

Doesn't that sound like socialism/communism to you?
  ;/

A relative went to Africa to help a "charity".  She described this exact same thing among the Africans.  If you have property, you are expected to give it away to your relatives/friends until it is all gone.  If you don't, you are the most evil person in the world.  And there is no gratitude, because it is expected.

The Africans she were surrounded with at the "charity" were corrupt leeches.  When she went back to the states, they would send her messages demanding money for "medical treatment" for someone she knew "or he would die."

There are actually MANY "balancing rocks" in part of Zimbabwe. It's apparently due to the volcanic geology in the area.

This is one I've always liked...

Could they really even be truly classified as "people"?
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Given how incredibly cheap life is on that continent,  that's some weak leverage.

I'm sure it did. Unfortunately, the social empathy that made her go to Africa in the first place also made her vulnerable to the African scumbag shysters.

This. The empathetic, altruistic, and philanthropic are scam artists' wet dream. To a scam artist, these people and organizations are just bottomless pits of resources rife for exploit.

Yes -- they take advantage of that. Intentionally.

I'd never make it in the Peace Corps.

I'm WAY too "British Colonial" in my outlook.  :rofl:

Friend of mine had a younger sister who was really into the whole social consciousness schtick. She ended up in the Peace Corps in the Central African Republic for a couple of years, and ended up falling in love with a guy, whom she brought back with her. Took a long time to get everything cleared, she paid all of the bills because it was expensive.

Within 6 months of them getting back to the United States... he takes off with his green card. It's all he wanted.

Only... he figured she was still going to be the cash cow, and he did his damndest to milk it. Her brother, my friend, had to step in in no uncertain terms.

This came very close to happening to my relative also.  It was horrible.

Same here.

Many years ago I went USMC, being mad about 9/11 .  4 years and I had enough.  Right about the end of that my little sister decided she'd go right all of the wrongs of the world and joined the peace corps.  Among the places she played tourist was the Ukraine...

Well how did that go?

She stayed with a really cool family and taught English.  For all the relative privation compared to what she was used to, she's still on team " I'm privileged and feel bad about it".

I've managed to avoid her for the past couple of years.  She became an expert virologist, and given my status as a dirty unvaxxed science denier we sadly couldn't hang out  >:D

Saw her yesterday at our parent's and she's still double masking.

And unfortunately, if they ever get a taste of power or authority, these people have NO qualms about reaching into OTHER people's pockets as well as their own to enrich the scam artists help the downtrodden.    :mad:
