Maat Philosophy

The Tenets of African Philosophy.

The Historical Context Of African Democracy

Continued from part one. But Africa has not moved beyond a partial establishment of the principles of Maat in her pursuit of democracy, even...

To Tip Or To Tithe – An American Dilemma

In the US economy, $3.50 an hour is a direct ticket to paupers’ paradise. Workers on such wages cannot pay half of their monthly bills let alone feed one child! They often have to borrow, with heavy interest rates accumulating at each turn of the month.

Our Environment – What the World Can Learn From Africa’s Past

In Africa, the human form has not been a prerequisite to holding rights. The oceans, rivers, forests, lands and ships still referred to in the feminine gender by traditional society, have long had an independent legal life, often with striking implications. African traditional law stands to teach us all – Africans as well - a great deal. It makes more sense than how the world is treating the environment.

The Greatest African Missionary – Kgosi Sechele vs David Livingstone

Chief Sechele's 'strange mixture' was in fact African Christianity. Unlike other converts who were content to follow European Christianity, Sechele went back to the source and recreated it as an indigenous African religion. He threw away the European depiction of Christ, white with long straight hair, and carved a statue, with profuse African features, and long twisted braids to boot, as Jesus Christ!

Violence, Greed and the Gridiron

Ethnocentrism in Ghanaian Politics is not Dangerous – Essamuah

Mr. Essamuah may think that the modern structure of democracy in Ghana is stable. And I can agree to a very general extent. However, even in the swing regions of Western, Central and Greater Accra, various populations of Ewes (or people loyal to them) and Asantes (or groups loyal to them) do political battle to carry those regions.

Race & Ethnic Perception May Not be Automatic

The few African psychologists who have spoken out about this new research are of the view that racism itself is a practice of group membership carried to unacceptable excesses and consequences, and that these practices are rather taught to groups, and not naturally acquired by them.

Restoring Africa In ‘The African’ Elite

The current African elite has no philosophy that governs its thinking, that shapes its intellect, that connects it organically to its people. The pharaonic elite were shaped by an African philosophy which was expressed in its most beautiful form by several of its greatest thinkers. We have here only presented two of them. The African elite needs to be reconstructed.

The Next Pope: A New Chapter For Mankind

I think it would be wonderful to have an African Pope who hopefully will not call himself “Peter” or any derivation thereof so that we can move past the second “Doomsday” scenario now that the Mayans have been discredited.

What’s the News? Depends Who’s Reporting

People often feel cheated when they learn that the news isn’t really about news, but about conjecture and propaganda and ratings. That reporters aren’t objective, unbiased individuals, but porous minds socialized in subjective communities.
