WORSHIP KNOWLEDGE, NOT MONEY.
Successful countries celebrate knowledge,
Unsuccessful countries worship money.
Money obtained by drug deals,
Money stolen from the general purse,
Bank heist money,
Confidence scheme money.
Criminals with money are celebrated in unsuccessful countries,
Successful countries celebrate knowledge.
Knowledge may lead to money.
Illicit money leads to bachanality, debauchery, immorality, and licentiousness.
Societies built on these principles are retrogressive,
Bereft of a middle class,
Compounded by lack of innovation.
Knowledgeable persons create wealth,
Monied persons spend or export wealth.
Knowledgeable persons create foundations,
Monied persons disrupt foundations,
Knowledgeable persons empower society,
Monied persons empower criminality,
Isn’t the choice clear?
In money economy, people spray money on people.
In knowledge economy, money is splashed on ideas.
Money sprayed on people is squandered.
Money sprayed on ideas creates more money.
African countries wake up!
And stop worshipping money.
Knowledge trumps money.
Remember that money was created by knowledge.
