Considering all that is going wrong in Zimbabwe, 10 sextillion percent inflation, 90% unemployment, mass starvation, and disease, it is hard to imagine that the new unity government could do anything that would worsen the situation. Unfortunately, they have found a way to make things worse. The BBC reports that in the last 14 days, the new unity government has seized 77 white owned farms. Pascal Salin once remarked “Property rights, not democracy, is the mark of a free society.” Clearly the tiny shred of property rights that had existed since Mugabe’s rise to power has now been destroyed. How much worse can things get?
