IS AFRICA POOR BECAUSE OF A DIVINE CURSE?
NEO-LIBERAL LIES, MIND CONTROL AND COVER-UP POLITICS
Many scholars, elites and pastors are propelling the lie that Africa is poor because it is cursed.
The fact that Africa is not coming out of ‘her' poverty despite the billions pumped into the continent in terms of aid is luring many individuals to simplistically deduce that Africa's poverty must be situated in a divine curse.
Many individuals can not understand the fundamentals behind Africa's poverty problematic because they are very ignorant of the implications of the global paradigm shift from liberal to neo-liberal capitalism and hence the poverty and injustices ‘engendered' by this paradigm shift.
Many scholars are giving liberal poverty solutions to a neo-liberal problematic.
To make matters worse, some pastors and elites are propagating the deception that Africa is poor because of witchcraft, ancestral worship, occultism, blood shed, sexual sins etc.
This argument is flawed because these vices are also rampant in rich western nations.
This book situates Africa's poverty and governance problematic in the neo-liberal imperative of creating slave states.
The book shows that the so called African liberators and democrats are mere conduits of American neo-liberal interests.
