This is completely back to front. In other words it's shot through with
bourgeois ideology.

The best, in fact the only way to AVOID scrutiny is to bow to the dictates
of Western capital and its instruments such as the WB/IMF. Thus miscreants
like Milosevic and Mugabe are subject to thorough 'scrutiny' where a Mbeki
or Kaguta type of regime is praised (new brreed of African leaders, as the
financial and liberal press refered to them) for courageously undertaking
rrreforms which in reality impoverish Africans and strengthen the grip of
capital on every aspect of their societies.
