Narmer Amenuti (Dances With Lions) was born by The River, deep within the heartlands of Ghana, in Ntoaboma. He is a Public Intellectual from the Sankoré School, a Temple of the African Prophetic Tradition. He remains the only surviving speaker of Vebantu, the Ancestral Tongue to most West African languages. As a Culture Critic from the Sankoré School (of Critical Theory) and a Guan Rhythmmaker, he is a dilettante, a dissident and a gadfly, and he eschews promotional intellectualism. He maintains strict anonymity and invites intellectuals and lay people alike to honest debate. He reads every comment.

When you take a critical look at who the Ewes once were and what they seem to have become today, it begs still yet the following questions: Are these the same Ewes, now in the 1900s and the 21st century, who support Africa's begging for aid from Germany, France and Britain, every step of the way?
For example, why are we so proud of The Asante Chief who is only worth $10M when he sits on some of the biggest mineral reserves in the world? Twi-Speaking Ghana must ask themselves the simple question. Why? Should he not be worth billions?
More taxation to raise government revenue for the social state in Africa would do nothing to solve the developmental crises that African states have faced in the two centuries since the violently aggressive European markets have usurped their economies.
