The north, i use to love because it was simple, peaceful place, now its unbecoming. Simplicity of a culture is a gift in disguise.

Other African countries are becoming successful because their culture is more simple, this brings the chances for more stability. Simplicity doesn't mean stupidity, it creates the environment for corporation and even consistency. Any Sociologist would attest to this, unless i am wrong.
