I am sure that some of you will enjoy this quick video outlining the history of the Belgium Congo, Zaire, & Democratic Republic of the Congo. Included is the story of Joseph Mobutu a man who practiced brutal repression and unbridled greed with a style all his own.
It provides an answer to those who would argue that the history of the Congo can be reduced to the simplistic assertion that sub-Saharan African countries are inferior because they are populated by inferior people.
John Green, the speaker, is known for his novel The Fault in Our Stars
