After the people of Haiti overthrew slavery, the French empire imposed a massive, unpayable debt, costing the country an estimated $115 billion.

Then after France, the US empire basically recolonized Haiti, continuing similar policies, stealing its wealth

This question was explored in a remarkable paper published by the American Journal of Public Health. Using World Bank data, it finds that at any level of development, socialist countries outperformed capitalist countries on key social indicators, in 28 of 30 direct comparisons.

The prime minister who went on holiday while his country burned has been defeated by the issue of climate action. That's the good news. The bad news is that Australia is America's 51st state and the new Labor foreign minister is itching for a fight with China.

Not only must Russia suffer a real defeat in Ukraine, one Russia cannot rise from for generations, but France and Germany must also lose their positions of power in Europe. France's and Germany's appeasement of Russia is one of the biggest reasons European security has collapsed.
