Seems Reasonable

A NY Times editorial (via IHT) that makes a modest proposal:
The World Bank, which provided $18.5 billion in aid in 2003, should withhold money from governments that are antidemocratic or that violate their people's human rights.
Why not?

In fact, that the World Bank would be indifferent in its lending requirements to the type of regime it lends to serves as further proof, if you needed any, of international institutions' flight from reason. Ain't moral equivalency a bitch?
