A society driven by a genuine desire for change must first overcome the consent and the fatalism that prevent it from asserting its own humanity and combatting the tyranny of the state. For that reason, we must support actions that promote and strengthen citizens’ effective participation in the democratic process.
WHEN CITIZENS ARE VICTIMS OF SYSTEMIC INJUSTICES, POLITICAL PASSIVITY EXACERBATES AUTHORITARIANISM WHICH LEADS TO MASS POVERTY.
Africa cannot afford to land behind under the present context of an interconnected and competitive business world. Globalization fosters personal development and efficient civic leaders. However, the initiative to tackle systemic injustices comes from within. The notion that authoritarian regimes cannot cheat all the people all the time derives from the view that autocrats are unpopular and weak, which gives them incentives to divide and conquer. Faced with political falsehood and state-sponsored tyranny, freedom-seeking societies must be conscientious about the social and economic consequences of partisan polarization.
THE QUEST FOR POWER SHOULD NOT COME AT THE EXPENSE OF INTEGRITY OR HUMANITY.
According to an Oxford University Press release, “In 2020, at least 19 African heads-of-state have overstayed beyond their term limits via unconstitutional revisions”. In most states, the ruling party carried out massive electoral fraud to help the incumbent remain in power.
State-sponsored mercenaries are exercising extreme violence on citizens, followed by the death of peaceful protests. Given the interdependence of African states at the sub-regional level, the brutality of African rulers must draw the attention of leaders of liberal societies to the issues of regimes that exercise neo-patrimonial power. We will not achieve the freedom for all objectives without a concerted effort of free nations to end state tyranny.
