The Congo, home to the world's worst killing fields since WWII, is at it again. And the rest of the world tut-tuts but can't really be bothered. The story of the mass slaughters and genocides of Africa these past few decades demonstrate, to my mind, how greatly Hobbes is still very relevant. You need to be strong, rich and powerful in this world. It also underlines the dismal failure, and indeed moral depravity, of the political camp that pretends to care about the weak and the down trodden: they can't be bothered, they're busy with other matters.
And then you have this. A father of a young girl went to the authorities to report that three men (identified men, apparently) had raped his daughter. The authorities accused her of adultery and brutally murdered her, in a prolonged celebration of sadism. The murder was committed in a stadium full of spectators. This happened in Somalia, where the ugliest form of Islam meets the world's weakest nations: Africa.
