Reverse The Brainwashing – Information Age Has Given Us The Opportunity To Rethink

“First of all we need to address what l have labelled as the sheep mentality, as Africans. Sheep as we know are poor, lazy and dumb animals in their nature. Sadly Africans have bought the idea of being defined as lambs of God that was introduced by foreign religions meaning we are accepting to be dumb and lazy as a people.
As poor creatures who cannot critically think for themselves, we accept just like we accepted whatever we were taught and we believed it to be true. The sheep mentality made us believe that any free thinker is foolish and he will be punished by God. Sadly, whatever we know, we were taught.
Whatever we think, we were taught. That’s why our history was falsified and we don’t even know it as we are innocent sheep.
With the sheep mentality we believe everything we are taught is true. It’s time we remove this sheep mentality that we were forcefully indoctrinated into believing as Africans.

Getting deeper, our traditional practices as a people were destroyed. We have lost our memory of whom we were back then before the world told us whom we should be. All we remember is the falsified history that says we used to wear animal skins as clothing and we used to live in caves.
In terms of religion, organised religion has done more harm to us as Africans than good so far, organised religion has separated us from the soil.
Africa had divine spirituality, they connected to God without religion. When the colonisers came they found this and the only way they found to conquer such a people of calibre was to destroy them from their divine spirituality and introduce organized religions to them.
Now our clan has been divided and we no longer act as one. We have been taught to believe that our own traditional healers are nothing but demons used by the Devil. Mind you the Devil is not an African concept but it’s a concept that was introduced by our colonizers.
Africa today is a land of contrasts. The land of the brave mothers and fathers. After a visit to the villages this week and the network had been a major challenge that side but here l am, back to work for my race, back to serve my calling.
I’ll be touching more on our rural homes in the coming months. The vision is clear, we want to emancipate our people from mental slavery and remember l have volunteered even to be the worst respected person, to be the least person in Africa till Africa is united and is emancipated from mental slavery.
Like Patrice Lumumba, “I would rather die with my ‘head high’, my faith unshaken and a profound trust in the destiny of my people”

Evil and good spirits existed but not the Devil just in like other religions like Buddhism and Hinduism. Sadly what the man conceive to be true really hardens into a physical reality.
There’s a saying that goes “Speak of the Devil and he will appear”. We have accepted this reality and we cannot question it.
We have forgotten the people who were a clinic to our forefathers and mothers into believing they are Satanic agents.
Our local languages have become a shame and we now compete over who speaks better English than the other. We have made foreign languages compulsory in our schools and sadly we have made subjects like Agriculture optional and that’s why we have hunger whilst speaking good English.
In spite of all I said above, l am happy with one thing. We are now in the age of information and beliefs are becoming invalid in the presence of truth.

Let’s stop holding on to beliefs but rather seek out the truth. Let’s remember that our history was written by those that hung our ancestors and it’s therefore foolish to believe the history that they taught us is true.
Religion hasn’t united us, it found us united and it now has divided us. Man-made medicines have done us more harm than good so far, they cannot ‘cure’, they are a temporary relief to pain, surprising enough that when man made medicines fail, people revert to their traditional ways.
Man-made foods have become a cancer in our bodies, our forefathers and mothers who ate traditional foods never suffered from these modern diseases, they were strong people and they lived longer.
The European educational system that we have accepted is creating people who solve their problems and not our own, we go to school to fight to excel so that we can qualify to work in their countries.
Let us wake up. The solution lies within each one of us. The oppressor hides the information that you need to know because they know how dangerous you will be after you acquire that information.
However, before pointing fingers at anyone, the responsibility is now on us to ask what we can do as individuals to make a difference, to change the dynamic.
The Information age is giving us this opportunity to do so. The age of beliefs is over, we are now in the age of knowing things. It’s time to say no to beliefs and start looking for the truth.
