Surrounded by water from all directions, Africa is a continent with clearly determined and absolutely accurate borders. In the north it is separated from Europe by the Mediterranean Sea, in the northeast, is separated from Asia by the Suez Canal and farther by the Red Sea. From the east and southeast it is surrounded by the Indian Ocean, from the west by the Atlantic Ocean.
The total number of independent states in Africa is 54. The transcontinental country in this region is Egypt, having also a small part of its territory in Asia, on the other side of the Suez Canal, but politically it is a member of the African Union.
Among the African countries, the biggest one is Algeria, occupying around 7% of the continent’s territory. And the smallest nation is the Seychelles, the worldwide famous luxurious beach holiday destination, occupying 115 islands stretching along the mainland’s eastern coast.
The colorful Morocco is in the first place among the most popular travel spots in this part of the world, the second place belongs to South Africa, followed by Egypt and Tunisia.

For over sixty years Africans have fought to liberate themselves and for over sixty years Empire has fought back. It has fought back under cover of the ‘blue helmets’, with synthetic revolutionaries and militias of assassins; with famines and collapsed commodity markets; with masked economic wars; with empty rhetoric, propaganda, fake media, and fabricated evidence of the ICC. It has been the machine that has crushed each successive generation since the colonial powers first carved up the African continent.
The Empire has imposed upon the people of Africa a financial system that has impoverished, not developed; that has forced submission, not uplifted; that has stolen, not given; that has crippled, not healed; that has spread among the nations a sickness that has set brother upon brother, that has made kings of the few and suffering for the many.
One-by-one the cream of African intellect was removed from power and replaced by stooges, government-by-proxy that would entrench those counties further into debt with IMF loans and World Bank white elephant projects that are paid for by the privatization of services, natural resources and the very earth of Africa. Leadership has prostituted itself in the name of a charade – pawns on an international chessboard.
The Empire has set the wolves among the sheep and led people down roads that have ended in untold suffering. It has fed the world with images of Africa that show nothing but carnage and brutality in a carefully managed program of perception management that sells Africa’s poverty like adverts for washing-up liquid on Western TV screens.
This empire is the empire of deception. It is the empire of disunity, not brotherhood; the empire of gangs and counter gangs; of synthetic revolutionaries and identity politics.
This empire is a financial empire, it is a monetary system that values money above the value of the human being. It runs the world as a business model with its only objective of profit.
It places economic gain on the necessities of a dignified human life, it places profit on basic food, on homes, on healthcare, on education, on electricity, on water. The value of human dignity does not feature on the profit and loss sheets.
Africa does not need to be lectured in good governance and gender equality. Africa needs development, industrialization and productive economies that provide jobs and prosperous futures. Nations need democracy, transparent and unhindered, that provides every citizen with representation in government. Government is to serve – not to rule. It is not a job for amassing personal gain, it is to leave a legacy that benefits the nation.
Let the people of Africa unite, let the people be governed by those that are representative of them and not of corporations. And let Africa rewrite the rules of financial engagement with Empire. Let wealth come from developing the physical economy of each country; that prosperity is based on production and infrastructure instead of borrowed worthless paper money.
Not the unity of an African federation but the unity of sovereign nations,each with its own magnificent ancient and not so ancient history, a unity of sovereign cultures celebrated by difference and not ruined by identity politics.
