Darned if I know who to root for, in this one: the government’s corrupt and the revolutionaries aren’t really our friends. I guess my opinion pretty much can be summed up by this spreadsheet (all data from the CIA World Factbook):
|Country||Population||Per Capita||% Pop||% PC|
Guess which countries are the peaceful, multiparty, free market democracies? And which country is the corrupt, strongman kleptocracy? There’s a lesson there, hopefully.
