    Excellent read. I found this quote interesting:

    Maren, who came to regard humanitarianism as every bit as damaging to its subjects as colonialism, and vastly more dishonest, takes a dimmer view: that we do not really care about those to whom we send aid, that our focus is our own virtue. He quotes these lines of the Somali poet Ali Dhux:


    A man tries hard to help you find your lost camels.
    He works more tirelessly than even you,
    But in truth he does not want you to find them, ever.
