"Any ruler must favour the interests of those that keep him in power. A military dictator has to take good care of the Army and everyone, even Roman Emperors, is afraid of the urban mob. And what we saw in Africa after independence was that the urban masses, although only a small fraction of the country, were those who had the political power." (11/27/11)
