Right on. Ken, Divide and conquer is a very effective colonial invention of the British. India? Just cut a deal with the Brahmins and avoid confronting anything cultural or religious like the Caste system. Nigeria today for the benefit of Shell and BP? Divide along tribal lines and cut a deal with one ethnic group to get permission to fleece the other; all in the name of democracy and stiff upper lip civilization. The Latin countries made the mistake of giving the Roman Church a free hand at converting the heathen and disrupting productivity and destroying ethnic culture.
