This is no way to live

One thing Second Lfe can do is show, not tell.

We need to show them what Charlayne Hunter-Gault is talking about in Zimbabwe:

That day he showed me farms now owned by Mugabe's cronies and supporters; he showed me burnt-out shacks that had belonged to poor black farmers who were removed shortly thereafter to make way for more of the same – cronies and supporters. (Most of the white farmers have left the country and set up shop elsewhere—some as far as Nigeria. But the over 200,000 black farm laborers had no cushions and no options. They stayed and suffered.)

Ideas anyone?
