Revolution in Africa

Every century bears its own mark of social transformation. It is the law of history; ruled by the contingencies of dialectical opposites. Slavery has been the mark of Africa social interaction from time intractable. Kings form dynasties while the masses are enslaved. The nobles flourish at the impoverishment of the people. At different points in the African history dimensions have changed, yet the matrix remained the same. How can one explain this? The changing dimensions have been driven by two parasitic elements: one from within and the other from without. The first is caused by elements that are part of the dynasty. They are nobles usually socialized into power by the fortune of their parents. Driving by their ambition, they mobilize other nobles like themselves and effect a change in the dynasty. The people are left in the dark; they only live to celebrate the changing dimension of the oppressive dynasty hoping for a breath of fresh air. But what is really there to hope for when they have not participated in the change. This is while they remain enslaved, because the matrix has not changed. The people again become suffocated.
