Just wanted to mention here that the debt cancellation movement has often considered such cancellation a form of reparations, not for slavery so much as for colonialism, neo-colonism (ie, economic colonialism via the IMF and WTO), and other such misuses of Western power. I am in full support of this. The debt of the developing world is ODIOUS, UNJUST, IMMORAL and by international law, ILLEGAL. It should be dropping not because we're nice and generous, but because of the odious manner in which the debt $$ was lent and spent under Western multi-lateral, governmental and private banks. We must stop rewarding reckless creditors.

Ok, I'm done now. That felt good.
