The Battle Between The Rich And The Poor In Nigeria by Jamesmatic(m): 11:05am On Jun 07, 2017
We are still in the first century of Nigerian time and it seem unfortunate how the poor hate the poor and how very quick they are to dispence jungle justice to criminals and these criminals (petty) takes pleasure in unleashing terror to the poor who suffer the same economic misery with them (criminals) While on the other hand, the rich seem to be highly co-operative and sympathetic to their course irrespective of how urgly the situation seem.
The rich appears to understand the game of advantage, much more than the poor and ultimately unite amongst themselves to enrich and favour themselves at the expense of the poor.
The poor are inexperience to the game of advantage, little wonder they hate and cause terror to themselves. A good example can be pictured in how the so-called Nigerian "big man" loot and launder funds meant for millions of persons go scored free with little or no prosecution and persecution all thanks to his friends and associate in the elite circle, especially the judges who presides over cases in our court of law.
The co-operation amongst the rich is so strong and rock-solid in Nigeria, that even the poor unknowing and unconsciously support their cause.
To them [the rich] the battle line had been drawn a long time ago and the poor whom are seen at the lower rung of the socio ladder had been declared sworn enemies tacitly. The battle against the poor isn't just physical which comes through various means of opperssion, but psychological, which seem to be the coventional form of battle which has gained so much currency in contemporary times.
Little wonder they[the rich] are insensitive to our physical, emotional, phychological and spiritual plight.
Each time we [the poor] make constant compain about our numerous problems, it gives a clear signal to the rich that they are winning the war and they rejoice and pontificate about it in their inner chambers: if the poor doubt this, why is it that the rich has done little or nothing to savage the bad situation which befall the poor? ( courtesy of their handiwork).
No wonder Franz Fanon said he foresaw the elite of the third-world nations being a burden to their people.
The poor need to learn: why kill one another, why terrorize one another, why scold one another, why the jungle justice, while the rich give each other palace justice: if the poor must steal, let them toe the path of Robin Hood of English lore, who steals from the rich and freely give to the poor.
The poor should know this, despite the "enmity" between the present govenor of Rivers State [Wike] and his predecessor [Amechi] Wike has never called for jungle justice for Amechi, despite the huge fund that was stolen from Rivers state Coffer: same with Abudumumin Jubrin and Dogara, Buhari and Dasuki, senate commitee and secretary to the federal government, Babachair Lawal, the list goes on and on.
So why should the poor steal from themselves and take out jungle justice amongst themselves? i guess the obvious reason is ignorance, delibrately crafted via our non-functional educational system which gasp for breath everyday. The poor must learn if they must rise from the pit of subjugation and helplessness into the pedestal that they dream and daydream about.
We[the poor] must unite, we must learn and understand the game of advantage very fast and take what rightfully belong to us, we must see past hate and prejudice towards one another, we must tacitly declare war against the rich and fight the war with everything inside of us, if we want a society that we so desire.
Consequently we [the poor] mustn't steal from ourselves, terrorize ourselves, take out jungle justice towards ourselves, instead all anger and aggression Should be directed towards the rich either physically or psychologically.
In a nutshell the poor must unite and fight. this article is aimed at waking the hoi-polois, the proletariat, the have-not and generally the poor to the consciousness of the reality on ground so as to ebb the tide and perhaps break the deplorable chains of poverty. if this can be done, a fair society will emerge which will shrink the gap between the rich and the poor..
