The VICE Guide to Liberia

Before this video, I really knew nothing about Liberia, save for the fact that it was started via a "back to Africa" movement by freed American slaves. That was it. Everything I knew about Liberia could be contained in that one sentence. However, now that I know any more about the place, I'm afraid I know too much. It's a hellish, war-torn country, and if you watch the 8-part special about it on VICE, you'll be afraid and horrified, too. Cross-dressing cannibals, heroin-smoking child soldiers, etc. It's insane. And interesting.
