Zimbabwe is a nightmare, even for the people who had it pretty bad under good ol' Rhodesia.

This isn't anything to do with "socialism". This is a return to feudalism.

Precious little difference between the two.

One has a King and Nobility, one has a Chairman and a Central Committee.  Same thing, different titles.

I'll take feudalism.

The Rhodesian government was far superior to the current regime in 'Zimbabwe'.

The Smiith-regime nearly destroyed the countrys economy an a lot of rebuilding had to take place after 1980 - oh, and a few were better of during the "Rhodesia"-intermetzo but the majority were living in absolute poverty. I can under no circumstances accept a regime that define people by colour and that believe that because your skin colour is "white" you are more important than those whose skin is darker.

All good points.. and I never said it was perfect, just better than the current regime.  The real heyday in that part of the world was the British Empire.

No, I meant real civilizations, not make-believe tales.

i.e. cases where there is evidence of their existence...

Hah, good one!  Revisionist history is such a laugh.
