Evidently, there has been a
dismal patch in the world economy. Undying efforts have been
made and are still being made by “world problem solvers” to
no avail. Protestations by European citizens have become
rife and are widening.
Amidst these interlocking circles of misery, it is ludicrous
that G8 nations do not seem to understand that they ought to
undertake serious trade negotiations and economic
developmental strategies with African states instead of
restricting their discussions with Africa, to morbid
subjects like the eradication of malaria, aids and polio.
These are partly due to poor economic conditions prevalent
in under-developed states.
Massive investments in Africa, which lead to prosperity,
would enable African governments to clean up their societies
and not wait for wild, hope-raising promises at G8 meetings
that are never meant to honoured.
In order to understand the background to the current
economic problems, it is necessary to examine some
historical facts that help to explain the material and
spiritual dimensions of the crisis.
In his famous book entitled “DAS KAPITAL” Dr. Karl Marx
dutifully analysed the philosophical and economic
underpinnings of capitalism and capitalist cartels in
capitalist societies. He had a faithful intellectual
collaborator in Frederick Engels.
Both Marx and Engels described capitalism as “an
exploitative economic system”. Some contemporary problems in
the world economy seem to vindicate the findings of Karl
Marx and Frederick Engels that the dominance by capital will
weaken as soon as the exploited states of Africa, Latin
America and Asia gained independence and piloted their own
It is important to remember that Portugal, Spain, Holland,
Italy, France, England , politically and economically
exploited Africa, Asia and Latin American nations between
the 15th and the 19th centuries
During this period, the colonialists enriched their nations
by monopolizing the foreign trade of their colonial
In order to maximize their profits, the natives in those
enclaves were made to work strenuously in mines, plantations
and in the fields. Where the colonial powers met with
justified resistance, they brutally suppressed the
uprisings, captured their leaders and banished them to
remote out-of-the way places.
These were the gory experiences of Jomo Kenyatta, Dedan
Kemathi, and Dr. Nelson Mandela, etc. Some Nigerian miners
protested in 1949 at Enugu. They were demanding a salary
increase but twenty-one of them were shot on the spot, while
others died later.
Many people in the colonies were sold into slavery, where
they were made to do physically demanding tasks. After the
Great Geographical Discoveries from the 15th century to the
16th century, Spanish invaders sacked countries in Central
and South America, e.g Peru, Mexico and the Incas, etc.
Thousands of those, who resisted colonial rule, were killed
by the Colonial Powers. Portugal colonized strategic regions
along the sea-routes to Arabia, Iran, Africa and India. She
captured the route through the Malayan peninsula to China
and Japan. Portuguese colonial policies were a catalogue of
systemic execution of people in its colonies.
Although Spain and Portugal extracted wealth from their
colonies, the wealth did not advance Portuguese capitalist
economic relations as the wealth was concentrated in the
hands of feudal lords, the Royal family and the Catholic
Church. The wealth Holland accumulated was not used to
develop the nation but for social festivities and the
purchase of luxury goods from France, England and Italy.
When the elites of England and the Netherlands saw the
extravagant life-styles of Colonialist Powers, they too,
entered the struggle to colonize the nations in Asia, Africa
and Latin America.
Holland, in the first half of the 17th century, captured
Portuguese maritime routes in Africa and Asia. In 1603,
Holland became a maritime power in Java, and by 1641 had
established its power in the Malaysian peninsular. In 1658,
they drove away the Portuguese from Ceylon (Sri Lanka). The
colonial exploits of Holland did not have much impact in
North and South Africa.
The Dutch used their territories for slave-trading and as a
platform to attack Spanish territories in those parts of the
Great Britain (as she was then), after the Anglo-Dutch wars
of the Second half of the 17th century became the most
advanced colonial power as a result of the bourgeois
revolutions, which activated the development of
manufacturing industries. Since the colonies were outposts
and outlets for manufactured goods, prosperity blossomed in
This well-being encouraged Britain to “rule the waves.” As a
result, Britain expanded territorially, not only at the
expense of France, but at the expense of other allies
including Germany, which lost Cameroun and Tanganyika.
Colonial Britain relieved the Dutch of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) in
1795 and later conquered Malaysia, Singapore and temporarily
occupied Dutch territory in Java, while pushing to colonize
Colonialism distorted the historical process of development
of the victims of colonialism world-wide. It achieved this
by imposing foreign languages, alien counterfeit culture
upon the indigenous people.
At the beginning of the 19th century, industrial capitalism
heralded the era of acute exploitation through the use of
industrial capital. Most Colonies were turned into lucrative
markets for manufactured goods. The colonies were inexorably
drawn into unequal exchange in that the colonialists’
centers of manipulation and control dictated the prices of
finished goods as well as put under-value prices on raw
materials from the colonies.
This inequality in the international division of labour
sentenced local producers to an unenviable life of remaining
in debt peonage and liquidation.
Another method of economic exploitation was the introduction
and retention of old forms of extortion through taxation
without representation, monopoly of foreign trade and war
During the period of industrial capitalism, the colonialists
directed their aggression to new lands. Towards 1856, the
British attacked India and Lower Burma.
With the support of France and America, Britain waged the
so-called opium war against China from 1839-1842. This had
the effect of turning China into a colony. The Nanking
Treaty was an unequal treaty, which took away Chinese Hong
Kong, Taiwan and Macau. Later the Germans annexed the
Shandong Port City, Qingdao. The Nanjing massacre by
Japanese soldiers remains incredible.
I lived in China for years teaching International Law, at
Shandong University, at Qingdao, from 2005-2008. I learnt a
lot about colonialist methods and attributes in China.
British colonialist carried out aggression against
Afghanistan (1838-1842), Iran (1856-1857) and captured
strategic points on the Arabian Peninsula. The British
divided Iraq and carved out oil rich Kuwait as a subservient
From this historical survey of capitalist states oppressive
sway over nations and peoples, there appears to be a
correlation between the Taliban, Chinese, Iranian attitudes
to the West, in the 21st century.
Since most former colonial states gained their independence,
very little effort at integration with the world economy was
advanced. The exploitative system was being well preserved,
until an economic revolution from the Southern hemisphere
smashed the status quo.
Chinweizu and Walter Rodney have written eye-opening
treatises on how the Western nations engaged in the economic
exploitation of the developing world. To their documented
evidence, I refer all avid readers to “The West and the Rest
of US” and “How Europe Underdeveloped Africa”
Most importantly, the rise of China, Malaysia, Singapore,
Vietnam, Korea, Japan, Germany and the far-reaching
decolonization of Latin American and African states between
1960 and the present, considerably weakened the economic
prosperity of the Old Colonial Powers. The World has become
more competitive; people have become better educated,
rebellious, aware, enlightened, progressive, more humane and
a little bit more civilized.
As a result, wickedness as practiced for over five centuries
by the people from the UNIVERSE OF FALLEN ANGELS has
mellowed a lot.
The economies of Western nations, which thrived on
exploitation of the human and material resources of
non-Caucasian people, have been hit by crises. For America
to be owing China colossal sums of money and are pleading
for a free movement of the YUAN, suggests a reversal of
There are three Universal Laws that operate on Planet Earth.
There must be GOD acceptance, humanism, and love. Five
hundred years of Man’s inhumanity to Man, exploitation,
discrimination, wars, war booties, slavery, colonialism,
imperialism and other brutalities by the agents of the
Luciferian Hierarchy in modern societies, signal that world
economies will collapse, man-made scientific creations like
atomic, nuclear, thermo-nuclear, neutron-bombs will soon
detonate due to inadvertence, with catastrophic consequences
to the whole world.
If ordinary volcanoes can pour out molten ash that could
disrupt the aviation industry, have our unintelligent
politicians with strong links to the centers of arms and
nuclear manufacturers thought about a HAYWARD kind of man
glibly justifying the blow-out of a nuclear facility . The
BHOPAL and CHERNOBLE experiences must be constant reminders
that anything can happen.
BOSAS INTERNATIONAL LAW BUREAU, Abuja, Nigeria, has
commissioned scientific inquiry into the durability of
nuclear arsenals around the world. The IAEA in Vienna
reports suggest that developed states with nuclear weapons
have the resources to maintain their arsenal but Pakistan,
under the double impact of terrorist fervor and a moribund
economy may not have the resources to re-charge its nuclear
North Korea and Iran, which have been driven by the “axis of
evil” speech by George W. Bush to engage in nuclear

European states to the West, where they have discovered that
human interests often remain divergent. These specialists

Suddenly, they begin to be buoyed by nationalist feelings
leading to strives, internal contradictions and civil wars
as we are witnessing in some former East European Socialist
states like Kirgizia.
The economies of these states depend, to a large extent, on
renting their territories to foreign powers and borrowings
for the World Bank and international financial markets. If
there is doubt about the ability of Greece, Spain and other
Western states to pay back their loans, it will not be long
before banks begin to close their doors to East European

economic system will envelope the whole of Europe.

Wall Street and the City of London speculators, the World
Bank and IMF experts cannot say exactly what is wrong with
the capitalist system of economy because they look at
statistics that cannot be verified by independent sources.
Their claim to “GURUISM” has been accepted for too long and
cannot be challenged with success. Yet, there are things
they are not saying loud enough for us to hear.
They should point out that the states of Africa can no
longer be exploited with crass abandon There is a lot that
the West can gained from mutually beneficial economic
relations with Africa. The Western scandal-loving press
should not concentrate on negative reports that tickle the
instincts of Euro-American citizens. These negative reports
do not create the knowledge awareness of the prospects of
economic opportunities in African states until the Chinese

I was surprised and amazed recently when Larry King
interviewed and replayed the programme, where he seemed to
enjoy the perversion which Kathy Griffin is an embodiment
of. The impact of her rattling about obscenities and
eccentricities could be telling and lasting on infant
Americans and young watchers around the world.
Larry King inundates our sensitivities with the confessions
of drug addicts, burnt-out actors and actresses polluting
the air-waves and hurting our senses of decency by their
outrageous musings, all in the name of free-speech. Jane
Velez-Mitchell and Mackenzie Philips are crackpots and
social misfits and drunks like Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, Tom
Arnold extol the virtues of being high on cocaine. Is the
decline in morality not a pointer to the quality of people
we shall be dealing with in twenty years time? Is this
degeneracy not the immediate cause of our economic decline
since some of the economic decisions made in ornate
Executive offices are taken after the bottle is empty?
Perhaps, we are witnessing the activities of the Agents of
the Anti-Christ, whose mission is to corrupt the morals of
the human race, through sexualizing the race, encouraging
wars, wickedness of heart, which leads to terror acts, now
prevalent in modern societies.
If we can feel so bad about the oil spill, the pollution of
the morals of Sons and Daughters of GOD should be equally
condemned. Apostasy, in the modern world has taken on a
wider meaning. Apart from doing and saying heretical things
against the Holy Trinity, it has broadened into the use of
television, radio and newspapers to promote sexualism in
obscene and disgusting ways.
These are the End-Times and Leaders of societies will be
held to account for the corrupted souls of the Children of
GOD, THE FATHER. The crises that have beset the world are
karmic results of the EVILS that have turned the world
upside down and inside out.
The present plight of nations is caused by lazy individuals,
who, incapable of innovative and inventive genius, join
political parties in order to be appointed ministers. Many
are in politics, not for altruistic reasons, but for profit.
I watched with dismay the ranting of an American law-maker,
who appeared on Larry King LIVE to disparage Mr. Kevin
Costner for meeting with Hugo Chavez. After listening to his
diatribe, I could not but agree with the former Governor,
who was on the programme, who had said that the man was
ignorant. The legislator blamed Chavez for the cocaine
Americans consume. He claimed that such a meeting with
Chavez was un-American, reminiscent of the Joe McCarthy
politics of name-calling, demonization and hatred. This type
of politics has been responsible for the lack of trade and
diplomatic relations with Cuba, North Korea, Iran and other

messages of disdain, denigration and arrogance. They

It is universally acknowledged by reasonableness that THE
CREATOR of THE UNIVERSE has never dimmed it fit to appoint
any man or woman to be His care-taker on earth because their
brains are puny, their time on earth short and their
knowledge is limited to material life. Also, from Man’s
ruthless behaviour towards his fellow human beings, were he
or she to have been appointed care-taker of the world, he or
she would stop the air, the waters of the sea and destroy
all life as a mark of his wickedness and folly.
Those leaders in transient, political power, who had tried
to usurp GOD’S authority on earth, have often faced
occasional degradation. Their regimes were either overthrown
or their term of office would end.
They become expired politicians, with wrinkles and gray
hairs to show for it. Jetting from one political event to
another, they pontificate on what should be done, now that
they have become “wiser and humbler”.
Politicians owe their people economic well-being and good
life on earth.
Unfortunately, some politicians corruptly enrich themselves
at the expense of the state.. Through administrative fiats
and legislative props, they racket the economy. A new,
strict regime against political, economic and cultural
corruption must be put in place otherwise, the “small
people” (BP Chairman) will rise up and overthrow the
Kingdoms of satan.
Had the Kingdom of satan not been overthrown in South
Africa, the Rainbow State would not have gathered resources
to entertain the World in June 2010.
