Because There Is A War On Your Mind

Every year the British government spends 600 millions euros on BBC World Service (the international propaganda branch of the BBC). And, every week, that World Service reaches  96 millions people in Africa, the biggest audience for the channel.

Now Ask yourself, why would the British government spend 600 millions euros EVERY YEAR on informing African people?

Here comes: France.

Every year France spends 273 millions euros in 3 international propaganda medias: 140 millions euros in Radio France Internationale (which reaches every week 40 millions people mainly in Africa); 80 millions euros on France 24 (the wannabe French CNN, which reached very week 45 millions people, largely in Africa); and 63 millions euros in TV5, a channel for spreading French language and French speaking countries culture in the world, which reaches about 55 millions people weekly, largely in Africa too.

Again, ask yourself, why would the French government spend 273 millions euros EVERY YEAR on informing African people?

The answer is simple. There Is A War On Your Mind!

As George Orwell put it “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history”, and those medias, in disguise of informing and entertaining the African people, have only one Agenda: corrupt our understanding of ourselves, our reality and the world, by implanting in our young people mind ideas and concepts that ultimately leads us to believe in what ever will follow up in period of political or economical crisis.

“We become slaves the moment we hand the keys to the definition of reality entirely over to someone else, whether it is a business, an economic theory, a political party, the White House, Newsworld or CNN.”
~B.W. Powell

The logic behind the massive medias domination in Africa by these Western powers is to prepare the Africans for a subservient role in this world.  It’s a process of dehumanisation like Steve Biko put it some time ago.

What can we do about all this?

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell

I’ve started SiliconAfrica 3 years ago with the firm intention to bring new perspective to African narrative, but also to empower a new generation of Africans with a higher level of awareness about the world in which we live.

I’ve put in my money, and dedicated countless hours to write articles. Any single article you read on SiliconAfrica takes 3 to 5 hours to be completed after the story has been researched. I personally write from 2 to 3 articles a week. No one is paid for writing for SiliconAfrica, all the work is done benevolently.

With that dedication, SiliconAfrica became the most influential blog in Africa during the last 12 months, and every day we reach several thousands of African entrepreneurs, activists and Africans in the diaspora. And some our articles have been translated into Lingala, Swahili, Chinese, Japanese, French, and Arabic.
Additionally, during the last 18 months, I’ve being dedicating lot of time coaching, in any single month, about 10 African entrepreneurs, most of them reaching out to me for help because after reading the articles they are set in motion to create and contribute.
Our goal nowadays is to continue this work but bigger and stronger, with the purpose to cover more countries in Africa and subjects. But, for doing so, we need your help. I’m asking you to make today a donation to SiliconAfrica to help us continue.
The point is that we can not just keep complaining about the system that is trying to dehumanise us, but stand up, think, and fight back. We  certainly don’t have the millions of euros of UK and France, but together we can start a movement that could make a big difference.

“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds..” – Samuel Adams

Now, “Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations they’ve long since bought and paid for, the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pocket, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and the information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them.” ~George Carlin (Exposing our Government and fall of Humanity One Joke at a Time)

    Africans must emancipate themselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!

    We have the power and knowledge to spread the word and teach the understanding of self to all African people. No one respects a door mat.
