Why should you judge uncountable people by the actions of one man?
And you say your ethics are superior to the third world countries? You don’t know what it means to be from an acclaimed dysfunctional country where there is no hope? People are so lackadaisical concerning all the dysfunctionalities. No one argues or protests when the corrupt Houses of Assembly appropriate billions of dollars meant to develop the country to their own wallets and throw small chips to the Education and Medical sector. You don’t know. So before you judge me or anyone else. Get in their skin. We didn’t ask to be born on the wrong side of the world. We didn’t ask to be born in a hopeless situation where speaking out means arrest for treason. Some of us are just trying to find a better life. Better than the one we were born into. I see nothing wrong with that. There are idiots and fools amongst that group, yes. But it doesn’t mean every Nigerian doctor is a scammer. Or didn’t go through sufficient training like people from predominantly white countries did. Thank you.
I think you can see in the article that I am not judging the actions of one man. Nigerian doctors have developed a poor reputation in the US for their ethics. Secondly, Nigeria is not a science-based country. A few of the elites can become educated and can get out, but that does not mean they are culturally scientific. That is, they are essentially faking it — is the best way to describe their education. I also do not know if you know this, but not only is Nigeria known for remote scams, but Nigerians are considered untrustworthy by other Africans.
I do not know what it is like to be from a country with no hope. I do have a lot of interest in the developing world, and I have associations in the developing world, and they tell me stories.
But the issue is that there is a reason these countries have no hope. And one primary reason is the lack of birth control. Nigeria’s population has grown too large.
Nigeria has a very high population — far too high of a population for the country’s resources. Many of the ministers in Nigeria are completely incompetent for not seeing that continued population growth along the present trajectory will lead to even more problems. Nigeria’s leaders seek to industrialize their way out of population problems — but realistically, there is very little successful industrialization in Africa — and it will put Africa into competition with China. It is not realistic. Curbing population growth is a must.
However, Nigeria is not doing that, so if anything Nigeria will get worse unless that changes. Nothing I heard from several documentaries I watched on this topic made it appear this would happen.
The answer is not to allow Nigerian doctors to come to white countries. That does nothing for most Nigerians, in fact, it denies Nigeria doctors — which is a huge issue.
And as for finding a better life. The problem is that with Nigerians migrating to white countries (a better life is invariably in white countries), this means making life worse for people in those countries. Not one person doing it, but people are immigrating from the developing world is such massive quantities now it is changing the culture in white countries.
For example, with immigration from the undeveloped world, the US is a significantly worse place to live than in my youth. Mexicans, who came from a dysfunctional system of extreme labor exploitation, have made many areas in the US dysfunctional — as they seem much like Mexico. Indians come for a better life, have taken over large parts of the IT industry, aggressively discriminate against US domestic workers, and other Indians not part of the right caste or religion. Indians are converting a European merit-based system into one of extreme nepotism and corruption. There are now many parts of the US, that I can’t go or work, because of the control of those areas by non-whites. Trust in the US is now in great decline, and as you can see from the George Floyd riots, we are moving into a period of unending race problems.
Diversity does not work, and the more white countries double down on this, the more problems we will encounter. Furthermore, we have a huge number of whites in the US who talk in a PC manner, but only themselves want to live in white neighborhoods. That is, they say one thing, but their behavior says something entirely different. The US is falling into the same problem that holds back Africa — tribalism. Only instead of tribes who are indigenous to the area, the US tribalism is now people who have immigrated from undeveloped countries.
If Nigeria is to improve — and I do want Nigeria to improve. I am not insensitive to the plight of Nigerians, many of whom I know live on $2 per day. Nigeria first address population growth. Nothing will improve in Nigeria without addressing it. Statements like “people have as many children as God wants them to have,” have got to stop, and with Nigerians met with the reality of the ecological and infrastructure constraints of the nation.
I appreciate the way you wrote your comment, and even though we disagree, we can still have a debate that allows us to explore the issue.
