The Dark Side of The Western Civilization

We all admire the Western Civilization, but Do you really know what makes it possible?

The image below depicts what makes it possible for each American or European to enjoy the wealth and quality of life they have.


Impossible-West-Civilization
For Americans or Europeans to enjoy their current lifestyle, their military forces have to invade, occupy, and loot foreign lands, kill or enslave millions of people. Most of them don’t know that! Here are the facts. Before the transatlantic slavery of Black people, Europe was like any other place in the world in term of wealth. However, after 3 centuries of Black people slavery, Western Europe became 3 times richer than any other region in the world, and after 2 centuries of colonialism around the world, western Europe became 30 times wealthier than any other region of the world at the beginning of the 20th century. The image below explains how the Black Slave has been the main sponsor of the global wealth creation system.
Africa-Slavery-capitalism

The compounding result  is that nowadays western Europeans and their descendants owns close to 90% of the world wealth, while they make less than 15% of world population.

For less than 3,5% of the world population American owns 39% percent of world’s wealth, while Western Europe accounts for another 31 % of global wealth with a total population less than 6% of the world population. World-wealth-by-region Here is a shocking video that shows and explain the wealth unequality in the world, and demonstrated how it has been achieved, by a combination of means that no one has taught you at home or at school:

As Samuel Huntington put it:

“The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion, but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact, non-Westerners never do.”

The hard truth is that, it’s easier to earn money with violence, war, unlawful activities than any other honest manner your parents have taught you. And nations become wealthier more quickly with war and looting than by the hard work of their citizen contrary to what the text books would tell you. That’s the reason why last year 1 trillion 753 billions dollars were spent in military budget, while only 700 billions is the money the world need to eradicate completely poverty from the face of the earth. Close to 70% of the world military budget is spent by western countries, which have built military bases all around the world to continue the world looting tactics. Military_spending

The poors of the world are not less hard workers or less intelligent than the americans and the europeans. Their development is either halted or constantly threatened and compromised by the western economical hitmen or military aggression.

China is the next world power, and it has learned well from the previous world powers: Europe and America. They are replicating the looting model with success focusing on one part on looting western companies technologies, and in the other part securing huge mining and land contracts in Africa and around the world. According Gen. Keith B. Alexander, the director of the National Security Agency, the Chinese theft of proprietary data from United States companies in sectors including defense, technology, aerospace, oil and gas, represents the “greatest transfer of wealth in history.”

The business of war is huge and profitable. The 5 permanent members of the UN security council are the most armed and the most dangerous Nations in the world. War is their read more

Startups: Prescription BEFORE Diagnosis is Malpractice!

bad-entrepreneursIf you have to start a business with your own money, go for a business which should be profitable in less than 45 days, if not immediately.

If your business idea would take more than 45 days to become profitable, do it with other people money: friends, family, fools and investors money!

This is a lesson, I’ve learned the hard way.

I coach about 10 African entrepreneurs every month. Some are rich enough to pay me, but most can’t, so I have to help them for free. Some are very articulate with rich business background, but most are recent graduates and first time entrepreneurs. Regardless of their background, the most difficult read more
