Self-reliant domestic industry takes a lot to build.
There is a reason Mao and Stalin attract so much controversy in their industrialization process.
During the Japanese industrialization, their imperial government even forced their women to work as prostitutes to fund the effort.
UK’s industrialization created the London fog. Countless death with a worker average lifespan less than three decades.
US’ industrialization eventually lead to a civil war.
South Korea’s industrialization is funded by a military dictatorship.
Basically, as far as human history goes, every industrial powers went through their blood and sweat. Africa didn’t.
