INTELLECTUALS: AFRICA VS REST OF THE WORLD.
For African intellectuals, educational apogee is
Spiritual awakening and elevation to “pastorhood.”
For non-African intellectuals, educational apogee is
Spiritual awakening and posing
existential questions on human origins.
African intellectuals use vast knowledge to
Prop, protect, and propagate bad governance.
Non-African intellectuals use vast knowledge to
Educate, evaluate, and empower good governance.
Terminal careers of African intellectuals are
Sinecures, providing extravagant governmental emoluments.
Terminal careers of non-African intellectuals are
Endowments, endorsements, and advisory governmental roles.
Caveat: Beware of Professor turned Pastors – very dangerful!
