Oh, yes, "they" should. Because infrastructure doesn't help with any of the problems you listed, and there is no middle class in Africa (definitely not a rapidly growing one). Furthermore, there is no variation at all in a continent of over 50 countries and a billion people - every last person in Africa is constantly ducking snipers whilst starving in the middle of the desert and coughing up blood on account of ebolavirus AT THE SAME TIME.

Good lord. Clearly this man has a healthy respect for the law, freedom of the press, international institutions, and our friends in Central America, whom he treats as equals even though "half of them can't read". And the crowd at slashdot is too busy jerking off to his pseudo-libertarian entitlementist thoughtporn to care.

don't use firefox. don't use any browser at all. if you need a browser, you need windows 7. sorry to burst your bubble, but anything else is going to be dangerous. you should be getting rid of any potential vector for badness (any software, particularly software that is known to touch the internet) altogether.
