AFRICA: A CONTINENT IN THE THROES OF AN EMERGENT REVOLUTION II.

AFRICA: A CONTINENT IN THE THROES OF AN EMERGENT REVOLUTION II.
By: Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr

I have been inundated with views from two divides, the one from Pundits who claim to be REALISTS but they more often sound like PESSIMISTS, and the second by OPTIMISTS who believe that the universe is under the control of the Almighty, and that CHANGE is the only constant.

Pundits who avow realism as an ideal, are quick to tell me how Africa is a dark continent of extreme minuses. They marshal data about how entrenched Forces, Big Families, established Political Demagogues, GodFathers, Deep Pockets and Western Forces run, rule and ruin Africa. 

And they put out statistics to support their position as though human beings yet live on trees, as though The Apartheid regime is yet in place in South Africa, as though Mubarak and Ghadafi are yet in control in Egypt and Libya, as though Compraore and Kerekou are yet in Bukina Faso and Benin Republic, and as though times have not broken the control of power mongers and merchants of yesterday. 
Why they think that the NEW cannot torpedo the present, I wonder. But indeed the pessimists and those who bandy realism as an ideal, are those who have given up on their ability to birth and berth the NEW.
The class of OPTIMISTS to which I proudly belong see the cup as HALF FULL not as HALF EMPTY. They know that the God who brought our boisterous planet out of nothing and out of primal vapour has not gone to sleep. 

And they know like my late father taught me, that the universe is in a progressive Flux, and that evil will never conquer good, that hate will always lose to LOVE, that oppressors will be vanquished by patriots, that the arm of egocentric leadership will be broken, and that societies will be refined, redeemed and reformed because such is the way of creation, and such is the lot of humankind.

To be CONT'D.
