Africa libre!

…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.

somalia,hungerWhy 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?

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    It can’t be helped. Perhaps some racist solution? Socialist ones failed miserably.

    It is not going to be solved by hashtags or candles, not even by demonstrations. Africa is not capable of self-rule whatever liberals may be saying. We should worry about Europe before it is too late –
