About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book challenges us to take a cursory glance at our contemporary world, where modern man s scientific and technological ingenuity has led him to soar thorough the galaxy and made the heavens part of his domain; and contrast that with his level of morality today. Open any newspaper or listen to the radio and television news and you can t help but lament on the appalling moral depravity and obscene behavior of our contemporary man. With this intractable moral depravity on the ascendancy, the author nostalgically reminiscences the upright morality of yesteryears, and admonishes us to heed Plato s philosophical advice: now since men are by nature acquisitive, jealous, combative, and erotic, how shall we persuade them to behave themselves? By the policeman s omnipresent club? {now, AK 47}. It is a brutal method, costly and irritating. There is a better way, and this is by lending to the moral requirements of the community. Throughout this book the author emphasizes the significance of proper moral education in shaping the character of children, youngsters and even adults, and reminds us: morals are the rules by which society exhorts its members and associations to behavior consistent with its order, security and growth {Will Ariel Durant}. The author noted that in traditional African societies, the wise elders, like the ancient Greek philosophers, strongly emphasized the teachability of moral values and deliberately inculcated them into their youngsters. The stories in this book are folktales filled with moral lessons that have been handed down from many generations to the present in many African countries from Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroons, Liberia, the Gambia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania to Zimbabwe. The traditional African elders successfully utilized these folktales to socialize their youngsters to the moral requirements of their society to insure stability, harmonious relations, order, security and growth.

About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Chinese generally look condescendingly on the humanity of black Africans, but over the past decades there have been a huge influx of Chinese on the African continent. What is driving the Chinese to the African continent? Are the Chinese in Africa to help Africa develop in their so-called win-win, or south-south development method? Or are the Chinese in Africa to exploit the huge super abundant raw materials and mineral resources to fuel their expanding industries?It is true that the Chinese are currently building monumental stadiums, presidential palaces, conference halls, but as much as Africans are grateful for these they do not represent economic progress for Africa. What we see though is Chinese offering huge loans to African nations in return for their raw materials. Ironically, most of the loans end up in the hands of Chinese contractors undertaking the construction projects, Chinese labor working in the projects, and Chinese materials and products used in the projects. In the end African governments are left holding the bag of huge repayments back to China. Moreover, some, if not, many of the infrastructure are often shoddy as the case of Angolan hospital, and many roads in Africa have demonstrated. Additionally, Chinese also support African dictators like Mugabe of Zimbabwe, Omar Bashir of Sudan, Santos of Angola and many others with deadly weaponry to oppress African citizens. Finally, the Beijing Consensus though has helped lift many Chinese out of poverty cannot be replicated in Africa, because of its authoritarian nature. Seller Inventory # AAV9781524604592

About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Can anybody tell us why profound poverty continues to plague our nation of barely 25 million people in this modern era of globalization in 2012? Why do you think the vast majority of our beloved people live on less than a dollar a day and struggle from cradle to grave living in near squalor, and eking out near subsistence existence? As yourself why is it that in the midst of this profound abject poverty less than ten percent of our fellow countrymen and women live in opulence and wallow in untold riches with their mansions encased with six-foot walls, seek medical attention in luxurious medical facilities abroad? Are the vast majority of our people in poverty ignorant and stupid, while the few wealthy ones are perceived as more intelligent and wiser than all of us?. Seller Inventory # AAV9781477267608

About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Do you sincerely believe in your heart that the black man is mature enough to govern himself, his institutions, and his nations? There is virtually no doubt that many black people are as brilliant as sunshine, and perform excellently when given opportunities in white institutions, but when they are left to govern themselves, the results have been chaos, confusion, destructions, excessive corruption, and sheer abuse of valuable resources meant for their populace. If you doubt these assertions, look across the periphery of black nations, and what do you see? You see civil strife in nations like the Ivory Coast, Liberia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, Sudan; you see proliferation of pandemic diseases like AIDS and malaria; You see unacceptable crime rates in nations like Jamaica, South Africa, Nigeria, and many others; you see grinding poverty, hunger, and hopelessness in nations like Haiti, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Uganda; you see mayhem and absolute lawlessness in places like Somalia, and of course do not forget the recent carnage in Rwanda, the amputations of legs and arms, and senseless mass rapes of innocent young girls by drunken soldiers in places like Sierra Leone and Liberia. This book discusses the political situation of selected countries governed by the black man, and reveals the problems of governance, mismanagement, excessive corruption, kleptomaniac behavior, and various abuses of the ruling class, and the resulting grinding poverty, hopelessness, diseases, and civil unrest in these nations. These problems are fueling the mass exodus of essentially economic refugees from these nations to the Western countries. This book discusses how ruthless, selfish, andegomaniacal leaders are destroying their countries by sowing the seeds of anarchy, and then turning around and throwing sand in the eyes of their populace by blaming the Central Intelligence Agency and other Western intelligence networks for the coups, civil wars, assassinations, and chaos and the resulting poverty in their nations. The author concludes by suggesting that the World Bank, which holds most of the loans of these nations, can be empowered to help manage the revenues of these nations for the betterment of their entire societal development, which will benefit the vast majority of the needy, the helpless, the diseased, and those caught in the mire of grinding poverty.

About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The African has been separated from his Black American brothers and sisters since the dawn of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Millions of Africans were forcibly ejected from their native soil, separated from their loved ones-their mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and torn from the lives they once knew, and transplanted into a new world. Essentially, the black American has become a new person in a new world with a unique experience. After hundreds of years in the new world, coupled with their unique experience; how do they view, or see, or relate or perceive or better yet interact with their African kith and kin they left on the African continent, who are now voluntarily joining them in America in exodus proportions fleeing the life of grinding poverty, deprivation, hunger, dictatorships, helplessness, and all kinds of diseases? The authors spent more than twenty five years trying to find out answers to these questions. Seller Inventory # AAV9781425958671

It is a brutal method, costly and irritating. There is a better way, and this is by lending to the moral requirements of the community. Throughout this book the author emphasizes the significance of proper moral education in shaping the character of children, youngsters and even adults, and reminds us: morals are the rules by which society exhorts its members and associations to behavior consistent with its order, security and growth Will and Ariel Durant. The author noted that in traditional African societies, the wise elders, like the ancient Greek philosophers, strongly emphasized the teachability of moral values and deliberately inculcated them into their youngsters. The stories in this book are folktales filled with moral lessons that have been handed down from many generations to the present in many African countries from Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroons, Liberia, the Gambia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania to Zimbabwe. The traditional African elders successfully utilized these folktales to socialize their youngsters to the moral requirements of their society to insure stability, harmonious relations, order, security and growth.

About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Do you sincerely believe in your heart that the black man is mature enough to govern himself, his institutions, and his nations? There is virtually no doubt that many black people are as brilliant as sunshine, and perform excellently when given opportunities in white institutions, but when they are left to govern themselves, the results have been chaos, confusion, destructions, excessive corruption, and sheer abuse of valuable resources meant for their populace. If you doubt these assertions, look across the periphery of black nations, and what do you see? You see civil strife in nations like the Ivory Coast, Liberia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, Sudan; you see proliferation of pandemic diseases like AIDS and malaria; You see unacceptable crime rates in nations like Jamaica, South Africa, Nigeria, and many others; you see grinding poverty, hunger, and hopelessness in nations like Haiti, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Uganda; you see mayhem and absolute lawlessness in places like Somalia, and of course do not forget the recent carnage in Rwanda, the amputations of legs and arms, and senseless mass rapes of innocent young girls by drunken soldiers in places like Sierra Leone and Liberia. This book discusses the political situation of selected countries governed by the black man, and reveals the problems of governance, mismanagement, excessive corruption, kleptomaniac behavior, and various abuses of the ruling class, and the resulting grinding poverty, hopelessness, diseases, and civil unrest in these nations. These problems are fueling the mass exodus of essentially economic refugees from these nations to the Western countries. This book discusses how ruthless, selfish, andegomaniacal leaders are destroying their countries by sowing the seeds of anarchy, and then turning around and throwing sand in the eyes of their populace by blaming the Central Intelligence Agency and other Western intelligence networks for the coups, civil wars, assassinations, and chaos and the resulting poverty in their nations. The author concludes by suggesting that the World Bank, which holds most of the loans of these nations, can be empowered to help manage the revenues of these nations for the betterment of their entire societal development, which will benefit the vast majority of the needy, the helpless, the diseased, and those caught in the mire of grinding poverty.

About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The African has been separated from his Black American brothers and sisters since the dawn of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Millions of Africans were forcibly ejected from their native soil, separated from their loved ones-their mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and torn from the lives they once knew, and transplanted into a new world. Essentially, the black American has become a new person in a new world with a unique experience. After hundreds of years in the new world, coupled with their unique experience; how do they view, or see, or relate or perceive or better yet interact with their African kith and kin they left on the African continent, who are now voluntarily joining them in America in exodus proportions fleeing the life of grinding poverty, deprivation, hunger, dictatorships, helplessness, and all kinds of diseases? The authors spent more than twenty five years trying to find out answers to these questions. Seller Inventory # AAV9781425958671

About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In this thought provoking book the author takes a critical retrospective glance at the political development of Ghana from its colonial past to the attainment of her sovereignty, and highlights the insidious fundamental flaws in the governance of the new nation. He unequivocally asserts that the creation of a dysfunctional totalitarian governmental system, where a cadre of unseasoned politicians systematically arrogated all power to themselves, and zealously prosecuted their political adversaries into oblivion, constituted the most fatal fundamental flaw in the governance of the nation. He points out that the military s delusional belief in their self-appointed messianic role of liberating and redeeming Ghana from the odious dictatorship imposed on the people opened up the nation to the Pandora s box of bureaucratic ineptitude, gross power abuses, poorly conceived, and haphazardly implemented programs which precipitated political instability, stagnation, and decay of the institutions of state leading to the exodus of Ghanaians abroad. The dominant theme that permeates throughout the book revolves around the prevalence of the underlying institutional malaise inherited from colonial political structures which concentrate too much raw political powers in the hands of the presidency. This accumulation of near absolute power elevates our presidents to the status of benevolent dictators, and so their policies go virtually unchallenged. This lack of checks and balances in our political system enabled the colonialists to totally exploit our people, and when our Ghanaian leaders governed our new nation in this same odious system they got the opportunity, like the colonial masters, to exploit and arrogate power to themselves, while utilizing the legal system as a weapon to harass their political opponents and silenced them. The author argues that this incompatibility of the colonial system with the political development of modern Ghana is the root cause of our political polarization, endemic instability and pervasive poverty.
