It occurred to me that America's foreign aid could be considered the world's heroin. We tantalize countries with it. We get them hooked on it. They crave it. They can't live without it. If we cut them off they suffer dearly. They will do anything to keep getting it. Things like lowering tariffs on goods so that corporations can crowd the locals out, accept genetically modified (patented) seeds, build factories and provide low-cost workers, etc. Just a thought.
