“At present, governments wrongly treat royalties as revenue, not a capital receipt, and merrily spend it, cheating our children and future generations of their rightful inheritance. There are a number of other inheritances that are depleted by mining, including the environment, the social fabric of the local community, the employment and incomes associated and the right to use the ore for useful things.

Since then, the stench of hypocrisy wafting out of Washington, D.C., has reached uncharted levels of foulness, as GOP politicians who were red-faced screaming over such Obama scandals as wearing a tan suit, Dijongate, and the “latte salute” give Donald Trump a pass on refusing to release his tax returns despite nearly everyone in his inner circle being charged with financial crimes; fomenting racial tensions; denigrating dead troops; and purposefully downplaying the threat of coronavirus.
