Belmont Club has a vivid look at what is happening in Robert Mugabe's socialist paradise of Zimbabwe. It's a little too long to repost here, but it's a very important read.
Back when Zimbabwe was Rhodesia the Left was all aflutter over the prospect of the white government being replaced by black leadership. This would be good for the country the Left declaimed, and good for all of Africa. In the event, however, it has been, like so many of the Left's nostrums, a nightmare for the people, both white and black, who live there. Indeed, today's Zimbabwe sounds very much like the Cambodia and South Africa of the 1970s.
