Gandhi, but with guns – Part 1

Posted: April 9th, 2010 by: h-2

Sometimes a quotation is really all you need. This one is from the superintendent of police, in the tribal warfare area of central India.

“See Ma’am, frankly speaking this problem can’t be solved by us police or military. The problem with these tribals is they don’t understand greed. Unless they become greedy there’s no hope for us. I have told my boss: remove the force and instead put a TV in every home. Everything will be automatically sorted out.”

The problem, of course, is that multi-national raw material corporations want access to the minerals in the tribal jungles. You know, like the movie Avatar?
