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

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

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty. - Winston Churchill.

I see in the present madness in Libya a wake up call to a continent that appears immured to the primacy of human lives and the dignity of humankind, it is a clarion call to the AFRICAN UNION A.U and to the Heads of State across Africa to rise up, to condemn the insanity in Libya and to take steps against inhuman and dehumanizing acts anywhere in our continent.

As an OPTIMIST who sees the cup as half full rather than half empty, I see Libya as a challenge to this generation of Africans, we must extend our call for a NEW deal to everything that pertains the human persona. 
As we challenge the gerontocracy that runs roughshod on our planet, as we compel their scions and protégés to give way, and as we progressively challenge for leadership positions across the planet, we must make LOVE our weapon, and we must conduct the emergent revolution with the highest level of decorum.
Having elected to organize rather than agonize, in our protests and revolution we must not be guilty of wrongdoing, but we must however, be weary of pessimists who all too often advocate the tranquilizing drug of gradualism, and whose mantra is 'take it easy, Rome was not built in a day', we must tell them that Africa is older than Rome, and that we can ill-afford the luxury of cooling off.

We must pull down the walls that divide, and say to those who see Africa as a lethal mix of Blacks , Whites and Arabs, of Francophone, Anglophone and of 'what have you' , that the second most populous continent in God's world is one, and we must work hard at entrenching a NEW DEAL where responsible and responsive leadership is the only permissible minimum.

To be CONT'D
