In 2012, the DRC updated its business laws by adhering to OHADA, the Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa. The news of “Custer’s Last Stand” made it to Washington during the midst of the centennial celebration.� Instead of Custer being hoisted onto the nation’s shoulders as the greatest Indian-killer of all, America had a sobering moment.� I have a special interest in the genocide of the Plains Indians, which is discussed at this footnote. [222] During those days, robber barons were busily building their capitalistic empires, and most of them got their start in Civil War profiteering.� Today’s empires in energy and medicine had their beginnings during the Gilded Age, empires that largely hold Americans (and even humanity) hostage today.� The defrauding of Native Americans out of their lands and lives would have been bad enough if it had stopped there, but it continued.� In 1775, the revolutionaries formed a Committee of Indian Affairs ("BIA"), headed by Ben Franklin.� Today’s BIA was formed in 1824.� The treaties that the Indians signed often provided for government assistance, because the natives had the land taken away that sustained them.� Similar to how the USA honored its treaties, the graft and corruption in the BIA was probably worse than in any other government agency, a notable feat.� One of the quickest ways to riches in the mid-19th century was becoming an Indian agent at the BIA.� A favorite Indian agent method was pocketing the money appropriated for Indian food and supplies and devoting a tiny fraction of the purloined funds toward largely worthless “supplies.”� The corruption was so bad that the Grant administration tried the strategy of hiring church members as agents. [223] � Grant’s “Quaker Policy” was not very successful.� In the USA's history, one of the gre atest vehicles for mischief has proven to be “ philanthropy .”� Some has been disastrous, such as the “philanthropy” of Rockefeller and Carnegie, which helped create today’s medical racket.� It is challenging to put a humanitarian spin on the machinations of some of American history’s greediest men.� Their right hand would machine-gun striking employees, while their left hand “gave” money to “worthy causes.”� Wink, nudge.� Perhaps some “philanthropists” were well intended, but their actions were often based on arrogant paternalism, thinking that they knew what was best for the victims of the very system that garnered the philanthropists their wealth.
