Unarguably, there's a very critical few of our gullible generation who sees merit as the sincerest tool to morally fulfill the prophecy of man's indebtedness to transform his understanding and society. We have held sacred those deep Hegelian dialectics the, moral and spiritual decadence, wide-scale violence, economic hardships, complacency, stunning poverty, conflicts, a buckled education system, paralyzed health system, vilified cultural configuration, gullible youths, unprepared menfolk, and the monstrous intransigent vices of capitalism.

The dystopia our Republic has become: Dr. H. Boimah Fahnbulleh greets progressives in the land

  Cadres, Militants and Compatriots, and Brothers Greetings For us, this is just another day when one considers the deaths of our compatriots in the Fatherland due to the pandemic. This is tragic and shows the dystopia our Republic has become. From the Ebola crisis and the help of the international community, we should have been able to put in place a decent primary health care system to address some of the problems of today and mitigate the calamity; but instead like vultures, the leadership dug its fangs into the…

South Africa’s unrest is something Black people across the globe should care about

  By Joseph Tolton The urgency for a new Black internationalism and the collective wisdom that only Pan Africanism can inspire has never been more necessary or possible. What South Africa was supposed to be … In 1987, I vividly remember dancing to Free Nelson Mandela in college, always knowing that my white classmates wanted him to be free, but I needed him to be free. South Africa was to be the triumph of African resilience, the courage of the Black experience, and the beauty of forgiveness from the victimized. It was to be…

Liberty Senator Dillon’s Diminishing Integrity, Dwindling Morale, As He is Caught Pants Down!

    By Ekena Wesley Nearly 19 months ago when we sought to equate Senator Abraham Darius Dillon to some of the finest advocates in the pursuit of social justice the world over, our commentary was greeted with outright mixed feelings. We went neck-to-neck with a childhood friend and comrade who had vehemently disagreed with our candid perspectives. In was an exchange not necessarily aimed at defending Darius Dillon, but one which had pigeon-holed the Montserrado Senator in a sphere never heard of in the history of the Liberian Senate,…

Cabral was right about class suicide

The class interests of the petit bourgeoisie are focused on becoming the sort of bourgeoisie typified by some colonisers in the colonial era.   By: Brian Mathenge & Mohammed Elnaiem In January 1966, Amilcar Cabral, who led the war of independence against Portuguese colonialism in Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde, gave an address at the Tricontinental Conference of the Peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America in Havana, Cuba.

Deceptive & Cunning as Usual: The Dirty Politics of Dillion Has Come Out of Its Hideout!

  Andrew Borbor Werlay Jaye Jr. Several days after the exposure of the devilish plot within the CPP, there have been a media spectacle and a public frustration everywhere in and around Liberia. The public anger that greeted the scheme shrouded the plotters back to their hideouts. The plot became more widespread after an audio-carrying voice of executives of the Liberty Party. In the damming, but backstabbing audio against the aspirations of the Liberian people, Mr. Jallah convincingly lamented to the Grand Gedeh County Chairman of the Liberty Party: “We…

Liberia Reflections: How Doe Became a Dictator

When Master Sergeant Samuel Doe burst onto the political scene in 1980, he put an end to the standoff between President William R Tolbert and the young progressives who were seeking an end to the century-old political oligarchy. Samuel K Doe was a shy soldier, from the bottom of the army. He did not know much about politics and could hardly read his speeches. He brought into his first cabinet the progressists and put them in charge of key ministerial positions. But the honeymoon did not last. Very soon all…

By Cde Mainda Simataa The old generation of African leaders must not lie to the younger generation that Africa is free, no! They must abolish Africa freedom day and call for a new struggle for 21st-century freedom – there no more whites and Boers to fight in our time, only treacherous black African sellouts who’ve betrayed the entire race and sold us back to the highest bidders after our resources. Therefore, continued talk about African Freedom Day is something that whites surely laugh at – it’s the grand exhibition of…

“There is a talent entrusted to you. It is your duty to call into action the highest forms of your being. It does not matter what your calling may be – whether it be what men call menial or what the world calls honorable – whether it be to speak in the halls of Congress or to sweep out those halls – whether it be to wait upon others or to be waited on— it is the manner of using your faculties that will determine the result- that will determine your true influence in this world and your status in the world to come. Everyone should do his part to advance humanity. Each should exert himself to be a helper in progress. Whatever your condition, you do occupy some room in the world; what are you doing to make return for the room you occupy? There are so many of our people who fail to realize their responsibility, who fail to hear the inspiring call of the past and the prophetic call of the future.” This article was first published in kentakepage.com, in 2015 Op-ed 

PAN AFRICANISM: The decline of Liberia in black internationalism
