…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
Recently, travelling around and listening to a car radio with one ear I heard that WHO (World Health Organisation) is predicting 3 million people are about to starve to death shortly in some African country, the name of which I missed. It annoyed me.
Why the black people do not get rid of white colonisers and rule themselves, as in the golden pre-imperialist times? Famines brought about by the ruthless exploitation by the whites would cease and people again could live in harmony with the nature and, in the unlikely event of getting ill, return to the proven treatments by their own honest medicine men. The artificial borders imposed by the oppressors could be abolished following a respectful debate amongst the tribal stakeholders.
It would not easy after years of the disastrous white, heterosexual men rule, but a quarter of century, or at the most a half ought to do. After all, Africa had timeless tradition of peaceful management of its peoples’ affairs, and respecting human rights of people of all genders equally comes to it naturally. The sooner they get the independence the better. Why nobody thought of this before?
