    I just watched the documentary about the land recovery in South Africa.
    As a U.S. citizen with friends in Africa, I was curious to learn more about their approach in solving a generational problem.
    My hope is that this is a solution to one of the problems facing Africa. Finally, the commentary by Ms. Richen at the end of the program regarding, what can America learn from the reperations in Africa made me stumble.
    Ms. Richen are you suggesting that we turn the title of the U.S.A. back to the remaining Native Americans and kick everyone else out? Do you have your bags packed?

    In The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein, she explains how everybody was so excited about the politics of the new nation, they forgot about the economics. However the international consultants, born of decades of experience, did not forget and made sure the appropriate positions were filled by the same pre-apartheid people. Other than that, great movie. I love Africa and its people.
