GLOBAL POLITICS: PERCEPTION OR REALITY – Africa’s Contribution to World Civilisation.

Africa has been portrayed as a continent that has contributed nothing to world civilisation. In fact, Africa is not only the cradle of civilisation but also the cradle of humanity. Africa is the birth place and the cradle of the ancient Mysteries. The Egyptians also gave the world religion. In Anacalypsis (1836) Book II, Chapter 1 page 2, Godfrey Higgins writes, “The Rev. Robert Taylor, in his Diegesis, has undertaken to show that what Protestants have maintained to be corruptions of Christianity were the origination of it; and that the early Christians were nothing but Egyptian Essenes or Monks, and that the Gospel histories were extracts of compilations from the secret writings of these persons”.

Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop states that, “The Greeks never went any further in the expression of man’s desire or ability to master nature through science and through mathematics in particular. Contrary to a current belief, Egypt was not that land hidebound by a religiosity that prevented it from conquering nature through science. Let it be remembered that it was in fact this country, which through science, brought mankind out of prehistory to the real conquest of civilisation. The first state organisation in the world was in the Nile Valley, in Nubia in Sudan, first at Qustul, then in Egypt with Menes (circa 3,150 BCE).”

Diop informs us that, like all Greek scientists Archimedes went to study or to further his studies in Egypt. It is only when he came back from Egypt that he “invented” the endless screw that Egyptians had been using for centuries before he was born for the extraction of percolated water.

In Stolen Legacy (1954), George GM James wrote that now that it has been shown that philosophy, and the arts and sciences were bequeathed to civilisation by the people of North Africa and not by the people of Greece; the pendulum of praise and honour is due to shift from the people of Greece to the people of the African continent who are the rightful heirs of such praise and honour. He says the Greeks stole the Legacy of the African Continent and called it their own. That’s where the book fetches its title. He says the name of Pythagoras, for example, should be deleted from our mathematical textbooks; in Geometry, where the theorem of the square on the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is called the Pythagorean Theorem, because this is not true. On what Dr. Diop describes as the so-called Pythagorean Theorem, George James says some elements of Egyptian mathematics  make it possible to affirm that Pythagoras did not demonstrate the theorem that is attributed to him and a large number of mathematicians who know anything at all about the Egyptian data, are conscious of this fact.

Basil Davidson says that, the fact that ancient Egyptian civilisation was known to have been African and that ancient Egyptians were black, is a belief which has been denied in Europe since about 1830, not before. It is a denial that belongs to the rise of modern European imperialism, and has to be explained in terms of the ‘new racism’, specifically and even frantically an anti-black racism, which went together with and was consistently nourished by that imperialism.

The racism that we know was born in Europe and America from the cultural need to justify doing to black, doing to Africans, what could not morally or legally be done to white people, and least of all to Europeans. To justify the enslavement of Africans, it was culturally necessary to believe, or be able to believe, that Africans were inherently and naturally less than human but were beings of a somehow sub-human, non-human, nature. That was the cultural basis, in that context, of the slave trade and of the modern imperialism in Africa which followed the slave trade.

Professor Leonard Jeffries says in his indictment of European scholarship and science, Dr. Diop equates imperialism with the prehistoric hunter who first kills spiritually and culturally before trying to kill physically. The negation of the history and intellectual realizations of African people is a cultural and mental death which preceded and prepared genocide here and elsewhere in the world.

Most of the African intellectuals who matter that I have read have correctly diagnosed Africa’s problem not only as one of physical oppression and economic evisceration of the continent but also the colonial identity Europeans gave Africans, which instills a sense of inferiority in the African and a corresponding one of superiority in Europeans or whites, as Frantz Fanon observed. Most importantly, Africans must also liberate themselves from European intellectual imperialism, political domination and relentless cultural and psychological rape. Africans must wean themselves from the very epistemological assumptions that strangle them, as Professor Marimba Ani stated in her book Yurugu: An African-Centered Critique of European Cultural Thought and Behaviour.

In 1949, in a speech at Fort Hare University, Robert Sobukwe told a graduating class of completers, “I said last year Fort Hare must be to the African what Stellenbosch is to the Afrikaner. It must be the barometer of African thought”.  This is not a platitude; the same way as saying Europeans have stripped us of our culture is not a platitude.

The European Conquest of Africa

European power plotted and planned to conquer the world and establish a “new world order” despite the fact that rivalries existed among different European powers. The new world order is the establishment of a one-world totalitarian government. To accomplish their nefarious plan, European powers met at the Berlin Conference of 1885 and shared Africa among themselves. Europeans started arriving in this country in 1652 and wars of resistance began immediately after their arrival. Land dispossession began with the arrival of Europeans for centuries. In 1994, there was a temporary break after those who negotiated with the representative of the apartheid government and their imperialist backers were sworn into office. Many make the mistake that this country is free.

Marimba Ani says what compelled her to write her book is the conviction that beneath this deadly onslaught (political domination, cultural and psychological rape) lies a stultifying intellectual mystification that prevents Europe’s political victims from thinking in a manner that would lead to authentic self-determination. Intellectual decolonisation is a prerequisite for the creation of successful political decolonisation and cultural reconstruction strategies. She continued to say that Europe’s political imperialistic success can be accredited not so much to superior military might, as to the weapon of culture. The former ensures more immediate control but requires continual physical force for the maintenance of power, while the latter succeeds in long-lasting dominance that enlists the cooperation of its victims (i.e. pacification of the will). The secret Europeans discovered early in their history is that culture carries rules for thinking, and if you could impose your culture on your victims you could limit the creativity of their vision, destroying their ability to act with will and intent and in their own interest. The truth is that we are all “intellectuals,” all potential visionaries.

Prediction of Three World Wars

In 1871, Pike published the 861 page Masonic handbook known as the Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. After Mazzini’s death on March 11, 1872, Pike appointed Adriano Lemmi (1822-1896, 33rd degree Mason), a banker from Florence, Italy, to run their subversive activities in Europe. Lemmi was a supporter of patriot and revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi, and may have been active in the Luciferian Society founded by Pike.  Lemmi, in turn, was succeeded by Lenin and Trotsky, then by Stalin. The revolutionary activities of all these men were financed by British, French, German, and American international bankers; all of them dominated by the House of Rothschild.

Between 1859 and 1871, Pike worked out a military blueprint for three world wars and various revolutions throughout the world which he considered would forward the conspiracy to its final stage in the 20th Century. In addition to the Supreme Council in Charleston, South Carolina, Pike established Supreme Councils in Rome, Italy (led by Mazzini); London, England (led by Palmerston); and Berlin, Germany (led by Bismarck). He set up 23 subordinate councils in strategic places throughout the world, including five Grand Central Directories in Washington DC (North America), Montevideo (South America), Naples (Europe), Calcutta (Asia), and Mauritius (Africa), which were used to gather information. All of these branches have been the secret headquarters for the Illuminati’s activities ever since.

The unification of the German states under Otto Von Bismarck upset ‘the balance of power’ that had existed in Europe for more than two centuries. Up until 1871 Britain had enjoyed a domination of the European continent. That superiority had been challenged periodically by such powers as Spain (under Philip II) and France (under Louis XIV) and Napoleon), but Britain always emerged victorious. The emergence of Germany posed a severe threat to Britain and its domination of Europe, economically and militarily. Much to their chagrin, The British found German salesmen and their agents offering better service, better terms and lower prices on goods of at least equal quality. After 1884, Germany acquired African colonies which threatened to cut across the continent from east to west and checkmate Britain’s plans for further expansion on the African continent. Germany also encouraged the Boers in the Transvaal and the Orange Free State before their war with Britain in 1898 – 1902. Such developments clearly posed a major threat to Britain’s plans. To counteract this threat the international bankers, who were largely excluded from the German economic development, sought ways to contain and control Germany. Between 1894 and 1907, a series of treaties and agreements, which would ensure that Russia, France, England and other European nations would unite against Germany in the event of war, were concluded. 

What Caused World War I?

History books record that World War 1 started when the nations went to war to avenge the assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the heir to the Habsburg throne, on June 28, 1914.

Most historians are agreed that the spark which ignited the War of 1914 – 1918 was a trivial, localized dispute involving Austria and Serbia. The maneuvering of the United States into the war came when the Cunard Lines, owner of the ocean liner, the Lusitania, turned the ship over to the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill. It now became a ship of the English Navy and was under the control of the English government. The ship was sent to New York City where it was loaded with six million rounds of ammunition, owned by J.P. Morgan & Co., to be sold to England and France to aid in their war against Germany.

It was known that the very wealthy were interested in involving the American government in that war, and Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan was one who made note of this. “As Secretary [Bryan] had anticipated, the large banking interests were deeply interested in the World War because of wide opportunities for large profits. On August 3, 1914, even before the actual clash of arms, the French firm of Rothschild Freres cabled to Morgan and Company in New York suggesting the flotation of a loan of $100,000,000, a substantial part of which was to be left in the United States, to pay for French purchases of American goods.”

England broke the German war code on December 14, 1914, so that “By the end of January, 1915, [British Intelligence was] able to advise the Admiralty of the departure of each U-boat as it left for patrol….” This meant that the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, knew where every U-boat was in the vicinity of the English Channel that separated England and France. The ocean liner was set to sail to England already at war with Germany.  The German government had placed advertisements in the New York newspapers warning the American people considering whether or not to sail with the ship to England, that they would be sailing into a war zone, and that the liner could be sunk.

On May 7, 1915, the Lusitania was sunk off the coast of County Cork, Ireland by a U-boat after it had slowed to await the arrival of the English escort vessel, the Juno, which was intended to escort it into the English port.  The First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, issued orders that the Juno was to return to port, and the Lusitania sat alone in the channel.  Because Churchill knew of the presence of three U-boats in the vicinity, it is reasonable to presume that he had planned for the Lusitania to be sunk, and it was. 1201 people lost their lives in the sinking.

After World War I, the League of Nations was formed and one of the founders was a South African, Jan Smuts, who studied at Cambridge University. He was also involved in the formation of the United Nations (UN) in 1945. There were those who did not want the League of Nations to be a world government. If it became a world government, then it must represent people and not states. The League of Nations and the UN were formed by the same crowd. The same applies to Britain’s Royal Institute of International Affairs and the US’s Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). When the UN was formed there were many members of the CFR among its founders who represented banks. That is why Canadian activists Glen Kealey said the UN was formed by bankers for bankers and was used to collect debts owed to these bankers.

What Caused World War II?

The Rt Hon. Oliver Lyttleton, a member of Churchill’s war cabinet, declared in an address to the American Chamber of Commerce in London on June 24, 1944 that “America provoked [the Japanese] to such an extent that the Japanese were forced to attack Pearl Harbor. It is a travesty of history to say that America was forced into the war.”

The Council on Foreign Relations published an article in its publication called Foreign Affairs in January, 1974, that agreed with Lyttleton. The article stated that “Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor actually thrust the United States into World War II, but the Roosevelt administration decided a year and a half earlier to risk war in order to prevent the totalitarian domination of all Europe.” On December 8, 1941, President Roosevelt asked the Congress to declare war on Japan, stating that December 7, 1941 would go down in history as a “day of infamy.” Therefore when Roosevelt addressed the nation through his speech in Congress, he lied when he said: “We don’t like it — and we didn’t want to get in it — but we are in it and we’re going to fight it with everything we’ve got.” Roosevelt asked for, and received, a Declaration of War against Japan. Germany followed on December 11th with a Declaration of War against the United States. This action was in accordance with the terms of the Tripartite Treaty signed earlier by Germany, Italy and Japan. Roosevelt’s activities in the planning of Pearl Harbor had a costly price.  The final toll was 2,341 U.S. servicemen dead and 1,143 wounded; eighteen ships including the eight battleships were sunk or heavily damaged; more than two hundred Army Air Corps and Navy planes were destroyed or unusable; and sixty-eight civilians were killed. For his supposed unpreparedness at Pearl Harbor, Admiral Kimmel was relieved of his command, and he retired on January 7, 1942.

World War III

Both Biblical prophecy and the Illuminati plan states that Israel is the key. The Third World War is planned to begin when Israel goes to war against her Arab enemies. Then, and only then, will all the other elements begin to occur and they will do so in rapid succession. The plan is to have one disaster following another in such rapid succession that, before people can mentally and emotionally handle one disastrous news event, they will be hit with another.  It is also accurate to say that until ALL of the elements for WW3 are in place, the plan will not commence. In the words of Peter Lemesurier, author of The Armageddon Script: “Their script is now written, subject only to last-minute editing and stage-directions.  The stage itself, albeit in darkness, is almost ready.  Down in the pit, the subterranean orchestra is already tuning up.  The last-minute, walk-on parts are even now being filled.  Most of the main actors, one suspects, have already taken up their roles.  Soon it will be time for them to come on stage, ready for the curtain to rise.  The time for action will have come.”

Globalisation – The Role of the West on the African Continent

Globalisation is part of the West’s subjugation of Africa and other developing countries. It evolved from the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade of 1947 into the World Trade Organisation which came into effect in May 1995.

The role of various Western countries on the African continent can be summarized as follows:

  • Britain – Former colonies are independent by name. They have flag independence, cote of arms, a national anthem and a flag.
  • France – Just like Britain’s former colonies, former colonies of France have also been given flag independence and use the Franc as their currency. France recently overthrew Laurent Bgabgo and installed Alassane Ouattara. France intervenes as it pleases in its former colonies and deploys its soldiers there.
  • Belgium – Together with France, Belgium is suspected to have played a role in fomenting civil war in Rwanda in 1994.
  • The US – This is an imperial power that has many Africom military bases on the African continent and plans to occupy every strategic part of the continent according to an article from the World Socialist Web Site of 11 December 2015 published under the headline Pentagon announces worldwide expansion of US military bases.

 In 1960, the US, Britain and Belgium overthrew the government of Patrice Lumumba in Congo and murdered him on the 17th January 1961. Kwame Nkrumah was toppled in 1972. Amilcar Cabral was murdered in 1973. In 2011, western powers overthrew and assassinated Muammar Gaddafi.

These countries not only destabilize Africa but the entire globe. In 1953, the CIA and MI6 overthrew the government of Mossadeq in Iran. In 1954, the CIA overthrew the government of Arbenz Guzman. In 1973, the US overthrew Salvatore Allende of Chile. Almost all the leaders and parties of the world are chosen for us by the West. Exceptions are North Korea, China, Iran, Cuba and Zimbabwe. Western spy agencies are a law unto themselves.

The Role of the Vatican

In addition to interferences as stated above, the Vatican is another player on the African continent.

The Vatican is a state within a state. It has its own bank its own ambassadors, intelligence service which holds regular meetings with the CIA. There are many secret societies at the Vatican.

In his book, In God’s Name, David Yallop exposes the goings on at the Vatican. He also discusses the assassination of Pope John Paul I who was apparently poisoned because he wanted to get rid of corruption at the Vatican. Pope John Paul I died only 33 days into his Pontificate (August 26, 1978 – September 28, 1978). It was one of the shortest reigns in the annals of the papacy.

Secret societies that are there in the Vatican are the Knights of Malta, Opus Dei, Propaganda Due, the Mafia and others. Guiseppi Mazzini founded the Mafia. One of the oldest secret societies is the Illuminati founded in Ingolstadt in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt. 

The Role of the Banks
“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws”, Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744 – 1812). “Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with a flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortune like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live. But if you wish to remain slaves of the bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money”  – these are the words of Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920’s. Almost all the reserves banks in the world are privately owned including the US’s Federal Reserve. Canadian activist Glenn Kealy said the UN was created by bankers for bankers. Why is that this country’s reserve bank privately owned when it runs the government’s monetary and fiscal policies? It should be under the direct control of the National Treasury, under the Ministry of Finance.

In my article in the New Nation of 16 August 1996 I mentioned, inter alia, currency speculation and manipulation of currency and “free” trade agreements and what is called trade liberalisation. Trade liberalisation means opening one’s economy to the West while the West is protectionist, especially the US. This is what the US’s Africa Opportunity Growth Act (AGOA) seeks to achieve and sell us by force, genetically grown chicken which many Americans themselves don’t want. 


This world is not the way most people think it is. In the conclusion of his book, Black Skin White Masks, Fanon wrote, “I don’t carry innocence to the point of believing that appeals to reason or to respect for human dignity can alter reality”. In her 1994 book, Marimba Ani writes that racism is the fire ignited by the Europeans; our response is only the smoke…There is no way to extinguish a fire with experiencing the smoke. Europeans have made the fire; we will put it out.
