The leading medical journal The Lancet on Friday accused major aid organisations of corporate preening and self-interest that had contributed to bedlam in the effort to help Haiti."International organisations, national governments and non-governmental organisations are rightly mobilising, but also jostling for position, each claiming that they are doing the best for earthquake survivors," it said in an editorial.

"Some agencies even claim that they are 'spearheading' the relief effort. In fact, as we only too clearly see, the situation in Haiti is chaotic, devastating, and anything but coordinated."
The Lancet did not name names and gave credit to "exceptional work in difficult circumstances" by aid workers. But, the British journal said, "the aid sector (is) undoubtedly an industry in its own right" and, unpalatable as it might seem, scrutiny of motives and performance was justified.

"Large aid agencies and humanitarian organisations are often highly competitive with each other," The Lancet said. "Polluted by the internal power politics and unsavoury characteristics seen in many big corporations, large aid agencies can be obsessed with raising money through their own appeal efforts.

"Media coverage as an end in itself is too often an aim of their activities. Marketing and branding have too high a profile. "Perhaps worse of all, relief efforts in the field are sometimes competitive with little collaboration between agencies, including smaller, grass-roots charities that may have better networks in affected countries and so are well placed to immediately implement disaster relief."

But, back to the Balkans… an armoured patrol was being sent into a village which had been ‘cleansed’ to see if there were anything other than bodies in the still smouldering ruins. The battalion commander was approached by the head shed of a well known medical aid organisation to see if one of its teams could piggy back the convoy & be escorted in. The CO deemed that this was a good idea & took it upon himself to contact other aid organisations who might also want to be escorted in. This caused quite a stir & the aid organisation in question let it be known to both the company & patrol commanders that only they should be allowed to go & that if all other humanitarian organisations were excluded, they would ensure that the Army would receive glowing media coverage.*

Basically, it’s the same in Haiti & we must never forget that there are whole careers at stake here. Just remember, if there are no starving babies in Haiti, then there can be no salacious TV coverage which humanitarian aid organisations can use to whip the general public with & every politician worth his salt will use the pile of rubble that used to be a hospital to claim up to the moral high ground. With roads as near as damn it impassable there might be no way of getting drinking water to outlying villages but there is always a helicopter available to fly in a camera team.

Ok. Sorry 'bout that.

Sure, in a limited sense. I pay taxes and put my garbage out on the appointed days. However, I'm not a citizen and have no voting rights here. I have no civic power here. I vote in American elections. I have full rights there.

I do, actually, use 'we' in both contexts though, from a Japanese perspective and an American one. That comment was clearly from an American one, though.

but you pay full japanese taxes, no?
8 years ago
Yes, of course.

Taxation without representation.

nice! sucks to be you. germanys been making progress in that regard. with stuff like restricted citizenship, voting rights on communal or state level votes and stuff like that it's somewhat possible for foreigners to really feel like a german citizen after a couple of years.

I actually didn't pay my municipal taxes for many years and only now pay them because I'm married, etc...

I argued with some guys at city hall once about "why do I have the same responsibilties, but not the same rights?"

Haven't heard anything for a few years, but those unpaid taxes will probably come back to haunt me someday.
