“This is the white man’s burden, the noblesse oblige of the missionary, colonist and development professional, who feel a duty to shepherd those unfortunate enough to be trapped in unenlightenment.”
Alex Perry, The Rift: A New Africa Breaks Free

“When humanitarians in Africa used the word ‘change’, I’d noticed, they’d mostly been talking about themselves.”

“The thousands who drown are excruciating evidence that what was once imagined as a global free-for-all has, in practice, turned out to be a buttressing of global inequality: cheap and easy movement for the rich; illegal, costly and even fatal odysseys for the poor.”
Alex Perry, The Trafficker
