Early on - back in the eighteenth century - the Brits quickly picked up that Indians truly lacked some of the thinking skills needed for self-government. That's why only a few regiments of their troops were needed to establish political control over the whole subcontinent. A few Brit-educated Indians like Gandhi and Jinnah tried to apply what they learned to shift the leadership to themselves, but bringing up the level of the independent middle-class appears to be the key trick to making democratic self-rule work.

Here come the staged Gaza doll photos!
We saw them in Lebanon, and now - they're back!
What would a conflict be without photographers staging photos?
And what better staging is there than dolls?
