^Yep. Not Leopold's "Free State" but Belgian Congo.

However Belgians probably will not want to take it back even for free. Too expensive to maintain. You have to maintain peace (disarm militias) first which means Belgium will have to station a lot of troops in Congo. Then you need to rebuild infrastructure (by asking China to build it?). Then you have so many Congolese waiting to be fed. So shall Belgium set aside some land in Congo for the purpose of farming ("public farms"?) so that whenever Congolese can't feed themselves Belgium can feed them? I doubt a new Belgian Congo will be profitable.

Congolese don't know anything about farms, only plantations ;)

Plantations? How many plantations are left there? Furthermore you do want to feed the population, right? So food crops are necessary.

One key issue with Africa is gross mismanagement. It's not that the land there is inherently infertile.

"quality content" the only thing he gives is a web link. Talking about lack of content

My solution is to take the Congolese back to the plantations since they've been learnt that way by the white man. I'm sure that's the only thing they know. Not that I'm inherently racist, but...

My solution is to make DR Congo a colony of China. Then the infrastructure problem will be solved within 10 years. China won't coddle the Congolese which is good. Western countries are too coddling to get any African problem solved. Africa does not need more petting but instead needs to be controlled.

Taking them back to plantations won't help since why shall plantations hire them when others can be hired to do the same job for less? There are enough East Europeans and Vietnamese who deserve the jobs more and can do them.

That's the fastest way to fix Congo. 10 years later you will be able to drive from Kinshasa to Goma.

The Old West (i.e. Belgium in 1950s) can fix it. However the modern coddling West can not fix it. So giving it to China is the best solution to the Congolese problem.

On the other hand, giving it to a liberal Western nation will turn out to be a complete disaster due to coddling.

Japan would fix Congo better than China

and they are not totalitarian too.

I agree that Japan will fix Congo too. However it is slower. If we do not consider speed any advanced and non-coddling nation (i.e. race realist, won't dish out gibs like crazy) such as Russia will do. I thought about Poland but I'm not sure whether they would start coddling. I bet no.

give Poland some land that has 2x as many folk, terrible crimerates, mostly jungle land, very different cultures, an illiterate folk with barely any electricity in the whole country in a government (and folk that uphold it) that's already trying to rid poor foreigners? Yes, belgique took it at one point but that took many years, a lot of struggle (with some parts pretty much given suzerainty), and much better military tech (machine gun > bow and arrow).

You know what's better than the Belgian Congo? The Congo Free State being personally owned by King Leopold II and the institution of Leopold II's policies.

In my mind, the only way to gain a colony and keep in forever would be to kick out all the native Africans and put your people in the colony.

If you eliminate all natives and repopulate with your own kind. It would technically be apart of your country because ethnic (Belgians) for example in the Congo live there.

The USSR kicked out all Germans from Köningsberg and it became Kaliningrad and became part of Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union.

If you don't kick or eliminate the natives in your colony, they will rebel, and they will make the colony not profitable.
