    Westerners are beginning cannibalism. When mice have nothing to eat, devour each other.
    The West has no one to explore.

    The evolution of mankind will happen like it or not the West!

    British Companies, they go, they grow and they sow,

    and we will all reap what they sow,
    Hopefully.
