There Goes the Birthrate!

Sanford, Timothy R.
July 1975
National Review;7/18/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 27, p775
The article presents information on the history of a small nation called the Barfa Republic in Africa. The nation was called Barfa because the majority of people who live there are members of the Barfa tribe. Another tribe Glokka arrived there who were much more advanced than the Barfa. They had devised military discipline. They subdued the Barfa and ruled them as subjects. In the eighteenth century the Glokka were retained in their position of dominance, under the British policy of noninterference in native affairs. The children of important Glokka went to London to study law, history, and other useful disciplines.
