Black Leftists and criminals resorted to widespread violence in Ferguson, Missouri and Haiti yesterday. The US media is largely ignoring Haiti but has paid some attention to what is going on in the troubled Missouri suburb.
Both were once orderly, prosperous parts of a plantation civilization called the Golden Circle by many 19th century Southerners. The country now known as Haiti lay at its heart while Missouri was on its extreme northern edge.
Bourgeois forces of Modernity forced equality and democracy upon the regions over thousands of dead bodies, ultimately leading to Black power. The imposition of Modernist policies has been disastrous, to say the least, just as they were in Rhodesia, Mozambique, the Congo and South Africa. Despite receiving billions of dollars in foreign aid, Haitian poverty is the most extreme in the Western Hemisphere. Likewise, Ferguson has enjoyed huge wealth transfers from productive US citizens elsewhere to provide its population with free housing, food, education, etc. Yet, as Time notes, the area now has failing schools, a high crime rate, buildings which are falling down and few good jobs. The town went from being three-fourths White and mostly middle class in 1990 to two-thirds Black and mostly impoverished in 2010
