OF QUEENS AND KINGS AND INDEPENDENT NATIONS

The Queen is dead. Long live the King.
The best payback against Colonialism is not to throw powerless insults at their monarchy and blame them for all your self-made failings, but to develop your nation until you rival them – and surpass them.
China did it. India is doing it. African countries, when are you going to do it too??? Surpass them and you will shut them up without you even saying a word. What is holding Africa down is in Africa. It is not in Europe.
Build your perfect system and you will live forever as Kings and Queens in the circle of nations. The British monarchy can continue to live and exist – why should that matter to me? Their existence or non-existence, their happiness or sadness, won’t change a thing in Africa or the condition of Africans. Instead, what the world needs now, and desperately, is a productive and highly developed New Africa. The dream of our Nkrumahs. And it can only be done FROM WITHIN.
