The African Man

Not so long ago, we witnessed some of the most horrifying deeds and acts against humanity in Nigeria, then came to Chad, South Sudan and its once again Burundi. What an amazing thing it is to be an African!
No one seems to give thought to what’s happening around us. Our leaders are in deep praise and advocacy for what seems to be happening. It’s a game changer for most of them. Then what happens to the ordinary man?
A life of poverty lingers for those who live below the average citizen, who by chance, make a higher percentage than the rest of the population. During cases of severe inhumanity, they are the ones who have to leave the cities or areas affected to safe havens, which is just another part of their country, hoping that there will be peace for them. They are the ones who weep more, who kill more, who get killed more and who fight the dirty war of numerous politicians. A very saddening face to witness.
But are we to blame them?  Definitely no. They are simply victims of circumstances.
Were we brought out of nothing by our creator to suffer and portray the last species of monkeys and baboons with some little intellect? Or are we suffering for some just cause, only to prove to the whole world that we are worthless and useless to the whole universe? It is so much disturbing to witness what happens in our continent. Yet, yet all of us or most of us claim to be attached to God in one way or another, praying to him every week and showing our love to Him. We can not assume that God is deaf.
Burundi is the last strong stand of a once deadly country. It has resurfaced again, this time, maybe the worse will be witnessed. The same fellows who happened to be involved in the Rwanda genocide now still want more of a red color to quench their thirst of blood. Something a white man sees as an opportunity to make money.
The United Nations, as superior as it is, condones this acts of insanity among the Africans, and even promote what happens around us. The African leader makes good use of the opportunity, the African man suffers more from the hands of his brother. What happened in Sudan, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Rwanda still remains in our hearts. With the UN offering little to no solution to maintain peace, and their frequent support to the smuggling of gold and precious minerals from the rich DRC, and its critical role to the occurrence of the Rwanda genocide and the Arab uprising, the UN proves to be a worthless and inadequate organization to Africa.
All that well said, the African man still needs to change from his natural barbaric and savage characters, to a civilized and reasonable man. War will never change the world, corruption and nepotism will never make us grow, and a foolish man will never learn no matter how educated he becomes.

What we Can Learn from the Zapatistas, EZLN..!!!

The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (Ejército Zapatista de Liberación NacionalEZLN) is a militant group in Southern parts of Mexico, founded in the early 90's. It is the strongest, perhaps, militant group in existence in the 21st century. Technically, it is not a militant group but a freedom fighters gig. The modern day Che Guevara's revolutionary gigs. We could term it as the greatest and most successful so far.


However, freedom does not come easily. The Zapatistas have lost so many of their members in the conquest of trying to protect their indigenous localities, cultures, traditions and unity. 
Their leader, Subcommandante Marcos is one of the most admired figure after other leaders of the current century such as Jose Mujica, who served their people without any discrimination of color, race or social status. They call him the modern "Che."
Under Marcos, the Mayan culture has maintained its extinct nature and has nourished more than other parts of Mexico. The…

On the Question about Morals

Is there right or wrong, good or bad, a lie or the truth, right or wrong???

Questions about morality will never have an agreed response and will always be the cause of wars, trouble and death. Saying all that, death, wars and trouble have their good side too.

If a child grew up in a war-torn country such as Syria, killing won't be as bad as those in peaceful countries put it. If another grew up in a family where the parents lied all times, lies will be the right thing. It's just life that we do not understand.

That said, every man, woman and child on planet earth develops a conscience of what is good or bad, right or wrong, et cetera. Our conscience creates a big difference from one person to another and differs completely based on experience, age and intellect. We become similar to animals who share one common language but differ in ways of thinking. In the end, we come to judge one another based on our own standards which do not apply to the worlds of those outside it.

The Truth about Love...(a)

One-hundred-and-seventy-nine years ago, a 24-year-old Soren Kierkegaard met 14-year-old Regine Olsen and fell in love. He waited nearly three years to profess his love and pop the question — then after just 13 months, grew anxious over the prospect of being a loving, attentive husband and broke things off, completely devastating Olsen. Kierkegaard wanted to make things work but feared his devotion to both Christianity and his work would make for an unhappy marriage, and so he got out while the getting was good and lived the rest of his life a celibate bachelor (which is sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy as he once said, “My melancholy is the most faithful sweetheart I’ve ever had”)
Everything we do in our daily lives is surrounded by this thing we call "love." We struggle day in day out to fulfill our love to either someone or something we think we care so much about. It may be our families, our children, our lovers both the known and unknown, our religious beliefs, our lead…
