We're smarter than you, so do as we say

“Relying on a belief in social evolution, development and modernization as objective truths, contemporary rescuers … consider themselves free, self-governing individuals born in the most civilized lands and therefore entitled to rule people in more backward ones.”

(An earthquake in Haiti, anything in Haiti, and it’s guilty whites piling up, one behind another, willing to pledge money, because, let’s face it, we have to help those poor Haitians. They certainly are not capable of doing anything for themselves. The same givers do not rush to "save" Turks or Armenians when earthquakes wipe out villages and towns.)
