Revisionist HIS-story if I ever read it.Yes the culture of "please save us from ourselves" ," it's the rich people's fault" has plagued the entire country. They will be waiting around for handouts from the red cross and habitat for humanity for decades. They have much company. Many countries and people blame others for their failures. Except other countries in the Caribbean.
The people of Haiti paid back the French for revolting with the support of other slave holding nations backing them up.
Hardly a group of people claiming it is the "rich people's fault".
Clearly the path of history would have been different if the country had of been allowed join the economic world system right off the bat.
