|Globalisation, Domination & Cleaver Euphemisms by NotComplaining: 11:27am On Dec 26, 2018
Part 1, Freedom
Ever wondered what the Europeans did with their plans to dominate the known world? I mean, when you think of the resources and years of planing, years that transcended generations and monarchs, the idea couldn't have just been thrown away simply because of, what we've been taught in school, that certain righteous entities believed a world of equity was more sustainable and democratic, right?
Certainly European dominance still exists, given without the shackles and price tags, thriving for the last hundred years with the help of cleaverly worded euphemisms. Words that conjure up feelings of freedom, hope and most importantly, autonomy - the all too familiar buzz word of the 18th century; seeding back indepedence to those it was outright castrated from.
But what makes a euphemism especially cleaver? Is it the grandstanding proclamation of "Freedom and equality for all nations" or the ubiquitous "Democracy is our right" ideological expression? We are glued to any political notion emanating with inclusion, belonging and purpose. As the underdog in the full scheme of things, we feel compelled to glorify the compassion of our overlords even when we dont fully understand why they are suddenly showing "unyielding clemency and empathy" towards us when their predecessors surely showcased a taste for discretion. They even coined words like humanity just to prove to the cynics how truly willing they were to unite all races, in particular the once utterly neglected 'nigger race'.
Words are indeed magical when put in ways that surreptitiously suppress intent, and beguile the victim into believing the pretentious solutions being proffered by a victorious narcissist with a god complex enough to put the devil to shame. Words have seduced many kings and queens into preying victim to extramarital affairs, so why cant they seduce a generation of serfs? Why can't words that can fool great competent leaders not fool the least priviledged and vastly uneducated?
Europeans quickly understood that the rate in which their young men were being killed in battle could not sustain a post war era when dominating the uncivilized was the grand prize. So they devise trusty words that would linger on in the minds of the prey while they dealt with business.
"We're fighting Hitler for world peace so you (delinquent subjects of the empire) wont ever have to [fight?]"! Such words kept centuries of systematic racial oppression from being avenged at a rare promptu moment in hostory. If Africa only knew what their progeny would lose, it would not have been easily bewitched and fangless at such a time... And ironically, some Africans love to view themselves as stalwarts of voodoo, vicegerents of gods of old and new. But perhaps a word from a wise and experienced white man is more potent than the voodoo of all of Africa?
We are living in the age of euphemisms, where suppressed peaceful resistence is the only politically correct way to disrupt the time old tradition of status quo.
A democracy; short for European subjugation, vote rigging, opposition elimination, destruction of morals and good conduct, greed of few to detriment of everyone else.
Some might dare argue that Europeans no longer subjugate Africa. Well, when last has an indigenous African company that sell products other than in oil and raw materials been allowed to trade seemlessly on the shores of Europe? Trade and barter is no monologue, mutual development of all nations is the objective, as in the case of France and Germany. What we have instead of trade in Africa is uninterrupted exploitation, rough uninterrupted rape. A sadistic depiction of sophisticated hard-core domination snuff porn.
We do not even have a financial system, we have a string of contemporary banks but no financial system. A backbone that would allow African governments to subsidize fledgling industries in the midst of European unfair trade policies. Ever needed a bank loan and couldn't get one, well now you know why. This is why we have so many NGO's in Africa offering aid, because white Europe knows black Africa is firmly in their grip and Africans cannot be allowed to compete internationally and show competitive brilliance and creativity. Can you imagine the racial equality it would cause?? A no no for a bigot indoctrinator. This is what Democracy symbolizes and nothing else.
Globalization; short for erosion of religious and moral values, consumer culture of all things foreign, collapse of local enterprises, high unemployment, flight of young educated people, knowledge gap, destruction of landscale, pollution and depopulation.
Africans unwittingly live within the confines of these euphemisms, believing the outcome of incombent government is squarely in the hands of the one leading it.
Corruption starts at the top, so the job of the rapacious European biggot is easy, exploit Africas lax vetting process and make their redbrick educated, white hegemony advocating, socially deviant coconut the prime candidate for the position of long streches of uninterrupted dictatorship power.
More to come.

Perhaps I wouldn't have believed that globalization and co are euphemism for imperialism and continuous colonialism had it been that African countries exercised government systems without interference of the Western world.
While Britain only modernized its monarchy and combined it with a unitary system of government, African societies eradicated the political systems that had served them for thousand of years before white man ever discovered Africa.
They got the black man caught in the middle and we need to look up to them to decide which political system we should practice. Despite choosing one which seems to be the best, our societies are crumbling and the brains we have in the continent are drawn to the better living conditions in the white man's land and the black man, the most degraded race is still suffering serious brain drain. This is a tragedy that'll be solved whenbwe start calling the bluff of the Western powers by looking inward for solutions to our challenges.

Africans need to get rid of the current eurocentric political style of governance. We especially are its arch enemies, historic rivals.
Democracy help Europeans interfere with our politics and always seems to bend in their favor no matter the condition, but why shouldnt it? Why else will a militarized monarchy like Britain devise a political system for all her satelites?
The common wealth states excluding those predominated by whites all share a common state of pitiful existence.
Where are Africas fanatically nationalistic leaders? Why havent we had one since Mandela? Is it that democracy filters them out so that what is left are complacent zombies?
|Re: Globalisation, Domination & Cleaver Euphemisms by traihit: 4:10pm On Dec 26, 2018
This your very last paragraph really got me. And I'm beginning to think that fighting any internal war is much more deadlier than an outside war. For Mandela, Mugabe (at the start) and some nationalists like them, the fight was against the whites. The enemy was visible and every African were mobilized against their domination of Africans in our lands.
After some of them got hold of power, they became cancerous to the system. See what became of Mugabe. What about Mobutu who called himself "conqueror of Great Britain"? Black man fighting black man who's oppresively ruling his country is much more dangerous than black man fighting white men. The same ideology of divide and rule is what the imperialists are still using to dominate African countries while our own African leaders use divide and rule through religion, tribes and so on.
Educationally, we're held down; culturally, we're caught in the middle; technologically, we're feeding on crumbs that fall off the white man's table with our technological resources buried deep in the earth.
As long as I'm alive, I still see hope for Africans even though sometimes it's really so overwhelming when I see chains of challenges holding us down.

Afrocentric leaders like Mugabe, Idi Ameen and Mandela reflected an alternative, albeit punitive, indigenous style of government that saw the overthrow of European lords.
Mobutu's rule lacked authenticity as he exploited a tumultuous period in Congo politics and deposed the erstwhile successive government of Patrice Lumumba, a true afrocentric leader who was quick to wrestle authority from the Belgians and paid with his life.
When we speak of Mugabes failures, we must do so within the bounds of context. Yes we know Mugabe was a prodigal, but he maintained a very African identity and put the black plight at the forefront of his political and military struggles.
White Europeans love describing Mugabes tenure as a despotic one simply because of the pervasive poverty which they are totally responble for. Europeans have the leverage on financial institutions since they were first to adopt the modern form of exchange, fiat currency and created many of the regulations that hold the system in place.
Any Afrocentric leader has no choice but to use the financial system propped up by the Europeans until an opportunity avails itself.
When you say cancer to describe the mistakes of Afrian leaders I cant help but think you speak with European influence.

I'm not going to deny speaking with European influence. They make the education system that was loaded into my brain and even though up to my first degree, I schooled in the country, it was the leftover education passed down to us that I had.
At this age and time, Africans need to wake up from our slumbers of tribalism, religiosity and so on. All of those factors are just being used to further enslave our minds while our leaders have been blinded to believe that what happens to the homeless boy on the street will never get to their children.
Need I say, it's becoming stale to keep ourselves in the avenue of excuses of what the colonial masters did. We can still call the bluff of them, we can still liberate Africa, we can still show the world that the black race is not only superior in bedroom activities but we are the same as every other race despite the prejudices and hatred we've suffered from the Aryan race for thousands of years.

Africa is not divided by mere tribalism and religion, its being divided by those who exploit certain borrowed religions for monetary gains.
Every ideology the white European has given Africa only serve to prolong our subjugation, whether economically or intellectually. Africa expanded into Europe and achieved great academic heights with the adoption of certain other religions, so we cannot just blame religion. Religion gave Africans morals and put an end to sacrificial killings.
Education is indeed under the shadow of European hegemony, we are in their era of dominance.
|Re: Globalisation, Domination & Cleaver Euphemisms by traihit: 7:52am On Dec 27, 2018
You can talk about sacrificial killings as far as religion is concerned. But morals, I won't agree probably because I'm from South-West Nigeria. The morals in my land has more rigidity than some of those shown in the Bible.
Yet nevertheless, I've come to realize that Islam and Christianity especially are just tools that selfish individuals conjure for their own selfish gains. Even till today, the Bible has been the most abused religious book by oppressors and it takes God to open ones eyes to see those.
Talking about globalization and the likes, the UN is just a peg to monitor weaker nations. World powers don't adhere to the rules of the UN and when the leader of a weak nation call the bluff of IMF, the country better be prepared because they'll stage sanctions against the country to keep it economically subjugated forever.
No country is rich indeed among the world power, in my opinion. All their riches are just what they've gotten living off the wealth of other nations.
