Blood and Oil (NYT)

NYT favors welfare state solution

introduce liberal guilt to Nigerian oil

rather than, say, property rights so you can mortgage your hut and get a loan to start a business

you don't want the government to care, but for it not to matter whether they care.

people take care of each other, given the slighest opportunity.

stamping this out is the way of the welfare state.

It is time for Nigeria's government to begin taking into account the plight of the people who live around the oil wells that have sustained the country for so long.
