3/5. imagine being at home, only to be removed bodily to witness your house's destruction by bulldozers so unscrupulous bureaucrats can profit from the valuable land it stands on. No, this isn't the opening sequence from Douglas Adams 's The

Storyville recounts the tale of King Leopold II of Belgium's brutal colonisation of central Africa, in which he carved out an empire based on terror in order to harvest rubber. Families were often held as hostages, starving to death if the men failed to produce enough wild rubber, with children's hands chopped off as punishment for late deliveries.
