Beside the colour of our skin, our height, our weight and our language differences, we all know that we are different in the most gracious unique ways. How we chose to handle our differences should be a matter of self-reflection on how we want to be treated with our unique selves. It takes time for one to realise what makes them unique and how to embrace that difference that set them apart from others. The sooner one does this, the sooner one guarantees themselves the sustainability of being comfortable for a lifetime and avoid suzerainty.
Africa can achieve its own sustainability plan on how it can sustain itself with its own agricultural schemes by being comfortable in producing by itself and creating feeding trades within the African borders. This could be done if Africa would free itself from international standards on how things are suppose to be produced and manufactured in order to be of high quality in which the Europe system has set for us. We should start creating our own living standards for which the poor should live by, we should feed our own people with our own locally produced food at our acceptable quality standards.
E.g if Nigeria spend more time in investing in their rice farms and properly harness it to be of good quality and be acceptable by the ‘African standards of living’. They can start to pursue local trades with in the local African borders to eliminate poverty in other African countries.
Let’s say South Africa also starts to invest more in chicken farms and also produces good quality chickens that the poor can eat and is acceptable by the ‘African standards of living’, now both Nigeria and South Africa can get in agreement where one country trades with another country on what they locally produce to eradicate poverty in their own countries.
A bonus also will be Ethiopia joining in on the trades of both these two countries by trading coffee with them while each country respectively give Ethiopia their share on trades, rice and chicken.
These African trades can help eliminate poverty in our deepest rural areas in each country. Therfore I find it extremely important in creating an environment of education at the highest level which will help cater for people at the lowest level of poverty.
There are 47 countries on the African continent, the sooner each country chose a suitable “product” it can produce at the highest African level without looking at the ‘western system’ for good quality confirmation, we will start to move forward in eliminating poverty in our continent and stop looking for help outside the continent. Creating these trades will help us monitor our growth as a continent (and not on individual countries on which country is more better than another country), it will create an environment where we continously exchange ideas on how to make the continent a better place to live in and importantly eradicate poverty.
One of the few things we should invest time and money in is Information Communication Technology. This is something we poorly lack in and we should see how we can start to create our own networks and communication model systems which we will run ourselves and save all our data in our own database.
African Renaissance is achievable in my lifetime.
We live in a generation where heroes don’t exist, unless it’s your father, mother or guardian angel looking after you. Heroes only exist in novel books and you get to see them once a year in action, even those heroes aren’t here to save every one of us, just a selected few that have something ‘special’ that the world needs, and those in power think they need to be saved (because they are important).
The heroes of today are those that know how to use the law for themselves, always looking for a higher position in their hierarchy structure to climb. They down play their ego and leave their self-righteousness for everyone to see.
I believe great men have lived and some have planted their ideological seeds to grow. Those seeds have grown to become enormous fine big trees with cooling shade underneath them. Only a few visit these trees once in their lifetime and experience the cooling shade of knowledge. Those who stay underneath the trees understand that the seed of these trees need to be planted everywhere they go, because every (black) child needs to sit underneath such trees in order to be free (from the past).
Everyone has the right to plant their own seeds, to grow their own trees and create their own cooling shade for themselves. We must also agree that not everyone is a creator of knowledge and that sometimes creating is not the most fun thing to do when you have the nation’s best interest at heart, while you, the creator, is being selfless in all cases. Ideological seeds have already been planted to save many nations. It is time for us to go back and search for these trees of wisdom and knowledge, sit underneath the cooling shade and try, learn in understanding ourselves and the universe more.
Self-reliance and self-renaissance, without vanity of money or gold.
There’s nothing new under the sun.
I have an A on my chest.
Trevor Noah being the new host of the daily show is a huge achievement but not a great one. The daily show is a political satire show that mainly talks about American politics. A question I asked myself is why did the the producers of the show really put Trevor Noah as the host of the show. I mean, there are many Black American comedians who are fit for that job.
America is a land of opportunities, I truly believe that. When you want to “crack the ice” in an awkward position/situation you try telling a joke. Now this is a good way for America to pull us, Africans, that really don’t know or like politics, into their capitalist politics. We’ll laugh and start to relate with them, until we say, “ei, South African politics aren’t really that shitty”, while they are and gun violence is on the rise.
This is a stunt by the Americans to put Trevor Noah on such a huge show, he has barely been there for more than five years. They really want to get into Africa, the other countries on the continent don’t entertain America that much, some don’t like America at all. America is using this show as a springboard to the rest of Africa for us to entertain their politics while our own politics at home are failing us.
Will we ever reach true emancipation and liberation? South African politics is still in shackles from our past horror.
See it how you want to.
I don’t know much about everything, but I’m willing to find out as much as possible about everything.
