Viewpoint: How British let one million Indians die in famine

BBC remembers - a famine in India under British rule that killed over a million people. BBC says.. famines were not uncommon before British occupation, but increased after, because the Brits destroyed India's textile industry & their economy; & 1 in 3 people died. The policy of the British was that govt intervention in famines was unnecessary & harmful, because the market would restore a proper balance. - Sound familiar? (Typical Republican policy in dealing w/ poverty.) They LET them die.
