PHYSICAL CAPTURE AND SPIRITUAL DESTRUCTION
As the years have passed we have witnessed an unfolding of events that would eventually turn African society upside down, destroying the communal way of living that had existed for centuries, forcing Africans to capture their own brothers in order to secure their own safety from the slave trader's net.
In today's world the same capture of Africans by Africans is to secure middle class safety in the comforting shadow of modern slave-traders.
This turning of brother against brother, which has always been a carefully studied systematic process, set in motion a downward spiral that would eventually lead to the formation of a new cold and heartless personality in the modern concrete jungle.
In the struggle to survive the cold dog-eat-dog economic environment of the concrete jungles, hearts would grow cold and brotherly love would be a thing of the past, replaced by a deadly bling-driven fratricidal gang mentality.
"...although the oppressed often do revolt, the object of their hostility is misplaced. They vent their fury on a political puppet, someone who masks colonial power, a despised racial or ethnic group or an apostate within their own political class. The useless battles serve as an effective mask for what Gamer calls the “patron-client” networks that are responsible for the continuity of colonial oppression. The squabbles among the oppressed, the political campaigns between candidates who each are servants of colonial power, Gamer writes, absolve the actual centers of power from addressing the conditions that cause the frustrations of the people. Inequities, political disenfranchisement and injustices are never seriously addressed." ( Colonized by Corporations http://bit.ly/JpPM6S )
