Would somalia do better under British rule?

Yes. We would prosper and hopefully end up working on cotton farms and get lashed but at least have 0 unemployment and no starvation. We should all strive to be good dogs of the British and get exploited.

Far better were we doing before we were colonized. Italians not ruining our country enough for you doesn't mean our country would be better of getting colonized again.


[deleted]

How would we know or were italians masters at propaganda? They couldn’t even colonise us properly because of how proud and stubborn we were compared to the other africans


ChairmanUzamaoki

Speaking as a half Italian-American we are also big fucking idiots lmao

Lmaoo 😭

I don't know who raised you but there is something called dignity that is in the way for something like that to happen. You seem to lack that quality completely, otherwise a question like this wouldn't come to your mind

Waar ha u juuqin doofaarka.


[deleted]

None of what you said has anything to do with my question.


[deleted]

Yes it does. People with self-worth wouldn't be happy to be ruled by foreigners with opposing values. Therefore we Somalis would die fighting them if they tried. War means Somalia would do worse, because we wouldn't be sitting happily being degraded like that. Do you understand?


[deleted]

You talk about honor and pride as your people are literally starving and dying by the hands of Islamic extremism lmao.


[deleted]

Yes. This is something you will never understand. This is an internal problem for us to solve and we believe in ourselves. Life is not always easy Your mindset is what was behind the slavery of your ancestors and the colonization of Africa


[deleted]

My ancestors weren't slaves lmao why would you think that?


[deleted]

Because slaves were taken from Ghana and you said yourself that you are Ghanaian. This is not the point though, even if your ancestors weren't enslaved, your mindset is like the ones who welcomed the Europeans to do their activity


[deleted]

Your logic is incredibly stupid but this is a moot point. Ghanaians aren't descendants of slavery... Somalia was significantly better under British rule, it isn't even a fair comparison. Britain created roads, hospitals, water infrastructure and invested in the education of the populace. Why wouldn't somalia be better under British influence? It's safer to be in Juna than Mogadishu lol


[deleted]

Would you be my slave if I gave you a little bit more money than you have? You will have a place to sleep, food to eat, clothes to wear and you don't have to worry about paying anything other than working for me. + I will give you a great education on my values and language denouncing and destroying your values and language in the process. What a great education i will give your offspring who will be my willing slaves too "magically" It seems like your thinking doesn't go past today, but we Somalis have big dreams to achieve everything on our own. We don't care if it takes 1000 years


[deleted]

The colonisers tried to forcefully colonise us but it didn’t work so they tried to sign treaties and pit us against each other and build infrastructure to get “public support” but non of that worked

If the British stayed we’d essentially become another kenya which is horrible. Our state is worse but a country with a functioning government like kenya to be in that state is stupid


[deleted]

Op is not Somali surprise surprise lol

There was literally no economy. All the wealth was poured back to Britain and Italy. People were over taxed, only reason we had railways was so Italy could export our crops back to their land. What schools? During colonialism vast majority of Somalis were illiterate, it was not until Siad Barre’s literacy campaigns more people became educated. Somalia was stable and peaceful even after Europeans left, not sure why you make it seem like it fell right away. Stop romanticising about colonialism.

Perhaps a poll could be made


ChairmanUzamaoki

Maybe but it's pretty low to ask foreign countries known for raping the lands of foreign peoples, starving them of their own natural resources, and selling their own products back them for profit to essentially colonize you.

It is never an ideal to live under a colony. No one signs up to be humiliated.
