Synopsis


Building on author’s earlier works, and essentially providing
Africa with original, critical, and multi-level analyses of the trio
of globalization, democracy, and national determination, this
book theorizes that African states have to unite in order to
have any impact in the global economy, whether it is capitalist-
or communist-driven; showing that China, but not African
states, did face up with the ineluctable political trilemma or hard
choices. Brought down to a lower level with the Cameroon
Goodwill Association of Montreal (CGAM) as case study, it
demonstrates how the CGAM too has grossly failed to make
hard choices, preferring politickerization or midnight politics to
fossungupalogy (that is, the science of straightforwardness,
necessitating the fearless looking at truth straight in the eye).
The questions of the book are many but do all boil down to
whether or not Africans fear the truth and do not therefore do
politics. It is amazing that Africans in the West live in societies
where fierce political competitors do embrace each other after
one has defeated the other; but they are incapable of looking
their so-called friends in the eye and saying, for example: “Man,
I think you’ve totally gotten it wrong this time.” Such
comportment defines politickerization or negative competition.
While attempting some possible responses to the numerous
queries it raises, this book basically proffers the science of
Four-Eyesism as a discipline that all African schools need to
institute and make a compulsory subject: if the vandalized
continent would have to be awakened to its realities.
