Botswana needs to work harder to attract and retain rich foreigners

The politically correct world in which we live is highly intolerant of dissenting views.  It brooks no dissent for those who go against the grain and choose to stick to tradition.  If for example, you state that there are only two sexes; namely man and woman and that a man cannot become a woman or vice versa, you somehow become a bigot and are said to suffer from homophobia. Similarly, if you say that a developing country such as Botswana needs to continue to use fossil fuels to power economic activities, then you are a climate change denier.  To prove that you are not a denier, you have to go along with the idea that meat is bad for the environment and thereby begin to embrace the weird idea of eating insects and bugs.
