    I know that this topic, like most geopolitics topics, has more potential than most to be contentious so I think it's extra important for you to know where the information comes from. Nothing said in this video is new and you can find all the sources at this link:

    Normally the sources go the description but there were too many this time to fit. 

    One small note, at 11:14 it seems like some of the footage we used was mislabeled so these two clips are not actually of Rwanda. My apologies for that slip-up.

    As a policy, if there's anything more that I feel needs correcting or clarifying I'll update this top comment to include it.

      The problem with South Africa is the whites that brought her this far has been sidelined almost. And they have the key, Mandela who spearheaded the freedom struggle wanted an all inclusive South Africa, but the people following don't, sorry to say that blacks are better in destroying than building, better in sabotaging themselves than helping, better in killing themselves.corruption among the blacks is such that they don't remember their posterity.GOD WILL HELP THE BLACKS IN GENERAL.

      New Topic - Will East African Federation adopt Rwanda political system? If they do, there will be great opportunity for them. EAF will be the main powerhouse of Africa.

      Nanette Nette 89% of Rwandan are on public health insurance. 12 years free education. Although some improvements need to be done in order to make those systems more enjoyable and efficient

                  You're right that is an unusually low murder rate for a country that went through mass genocide only a few decades ago. It's almost like it is so lawless that they stopped reporting the murders.

                      All of Africa is corrupt and a shithole. Rwanda will fail again. As does all other countries in Africa will fail.

                        The problem in being a prosperous country is the country has to cope with lots of illegals who in turn may cause more harm than good.

                              Singapore's so successful because they can focus on one place, and that's Singapore. Development, especially from a centralized government, wouldn't be effective unless there's sacrifice, in Rwanda's case, they're developing the Capital at the expense of the surrounding rural area. I think it's necessary to do so, because the most successful model of development are the one that focused on one thing in expense of the others, and hope that a trickle effect happened, where the surrounding area slowly getting developed themself, instead of trying to do everything at once, causing small development that's widespread but insignificant.

                                Well, that's a very good point, and a good strategy: If the main city develop first, other cities will follow the example. If they try to do everything at once, the rural cities will follow only disorder.

                              I´m glad you made this video, but you fail in mentioned and detailing a lot of good reforms he´s implementing.
                              -He reformed the educational system building schools and raising the obligation to study until 12.
                              -Womens have equal opportunities, they representation on the goverment is 56%.
                              -Didn´t mentioned the he had programs to help the poor by giving a cow or animals( providing and efective solutions to local problems).
                              - In the political side he reintroduced the old pratice of imindigo(i hope not spelling wrong), that is a tribal system, it´s like the mayors in the USA.

                              The list goes on....

                                        Building infrastructure its a real good strategy in longo term thinking, and the authoritarian dimension in my opinion its parte of the trânsito of the country, its necessary, all First world countries experienced rigidy policies in the transition...

                                                  Authoritarianism always ends up bad. It may take a while, but it'll always fail. What Hayek wrote in 1938 still holds true today. Maybe more than ever.

                                                        If you have little violence, you have a stable country. This means that the country men and women have pride in themselves and the country. Desperation drives murder and crime. I'm in Japan right now and there is minimal crime and is very clean. The country people have pride and that is their success. Don't let the west define what is bad for a country. The USA while rich is a far cry from being ideal.

                                                                                        this sounds terrible but maybe the genocide was "good" thing for rwanda in a way, I mean it created alot of land to invest in and it created alot of empty spaces in the job market, causing wages to rise so that people could spend more, boosting the economy.

                                                                                        • Mitch Mazamez19

The genocide didn’t target the entire population but only Tutsi people. The good results of today are due to better leadership, not a smaller population size.
