Zimbabwe continues its short march into barbarism. Here’s is a quote from land minister John Nkomo – sadly reminiscient of early twentieth century history.

Ultimately, all land shall be resettled as state property. It will now be the state which will enable the utilization of the land for national prosperity.

Of course, he was quoted in the government controlled newspaper. And get this, it’s not good enough that the government take the land:

Mr. Nkomo urged farmers to volunteer their land to the state rather than wait for an order, saying, “The state should not be made to waste time and money on acquisitions.”

The people of Zimbabwe are starving because of land “redistribution” could a better example of Robert Lucas’s dictum be found?
