The World Bank Razes Villages
The World Bank was apparently involved in the destruction of an entire town in Albania. The article refers to the World Bank as an "anti-poverty institution," but any objective description of them would call them a "poverty- and dictatorship-maintaining institution." The article acts like this is a fluke, but it is in fact endemic to the very way the organization is designed. This only mad ethe news because it occurred in Europe. African dictators raze villages all the time using U.N and World Bank money, and nobody cares.
