Sometimes You Need a Market Dominant Minority

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Riots against French colonial rule on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe have turned lethal, which has led Al-Fin to comment that sometimes you need a market-dominant minority — like the French in Guadeloupe, or the Chinese in Indonesia and Malaysia — to run the country:

The parts of the world that never developed mathematics, never invented the wheel, never developed advanced written languages, should not be expected to excel in the modern technological world — and they don’t. Rioting against rule by market dominant minorities can feel quite righteous — particularly to the socialist revolutionary “intellectuals” who put the “commoners” up to it (like the self-righteousness of the muslim imam who leads children into short but successful carrers as suicide bombers).
