The New Stock exchange was based on the auctioning of slaves. Between 60 and 100 million slaves were transported to America. The slave trade became one of the cornerstones of New York’s commercial prosperity in the eighteenth century. Slave auctions were held weekly, and sometimes daily at markets throughout New York City … A commercially profitable slave system became a common goal of both governments and private interests.
China is the next world power, and it has learned well from the previous world powers: Europe and America. Chinese know that European and American won’t just give away their wealth or friendly share their knowledge and technology. They know that they have to go out there and take whatever they need with or without consent. That’s how you build a Super Power!
According Gen. Keith B. Alexander, the director of the National Security Agency, the Chinese theft of proprietary data from United States companies in sectors including defense, technology, aerospace, oil and gas, represents the “greatest transfer of wealth in history.”
There is a lesson here for African countries: Don’t expect other nations to transfer their technology and knowledge to you though humanitarian programs. It won’t happen. Before Chinese, Russian and Japanese paved their way to high technology through organized economical and industrial espionage. The myth of friendly transfer of technology is still holding Africans in the starting block.
Sad to say, But Don’t expect much from those who have it all already!
