In Response To: If we will build African unity (Eja)
***(governing set of indigenous principles)***
***(fought in the spirit of "do or die")***
ABSOLUTELY, (if governed by balance/nature/self)... If ones KNOW (not think) that their physical life is inconsequential to the continuation of the species, the fear of death does not exist. The success of the Vietnamese in the 1960s, for example, was not in body count: Vietnamese 1,000,000 / US:58,000...it was in the sheer will and determination to live and die for THEIR merits.
But we must however examine RELIGION. "Religion" seems to always require an "esoteric hierarchy" of power, control, implementation and instillment, yet SPIRITUALITY though externally as different as fingerprints, is internally UNIVERSAL. That is why I agree with the "indigenous principles" but frown upon "governing set of". Any time we say govern instead of ntr-al/voluntary we run into egos and dogmas and declarations.
I have no doubt that our selves are damaged first and most significantly by imposed/governed religion. (yielding fear of death AND fear of the governor). Any time ones want to govern, you must de-divinitize the individual, maybe not in the name of white supremacy but nevertheless by way of some supremacy (perhaps male).
But that is just me addressing one small part of your positive position and pro-active solutions to Unity and division.
