Politics not Food

One would be excused for thinking then that the rivalry of Imperial ambitions has not finished and they still exerted powerful. If subterranean, influences on present day events. The Colombo plan is a compound of a little philanthropy and a great deal of dirty politics. Certainly there is a great deal of hunger and poverty abroad in Asia but the final solution will depend not so much on the patronage of the "would-be-goodies" but rather on spontaneous people's movements themselves. We would do well to help these movements rather than try to attempt to lay down the particular line of progress for the Asians to follow that seems desirable to us.
