Have a happy and vigilant 2018! Thanks to my Readers

All the best to my readers for a healthy, happy and vigilant new Year 2018!

Thanks also to my numerous readers from all over the world. I appreciate very much that you turn again and again to my articles into which a lot of work has been invested.

Anyway, a number of projects force me to lay my blog to a temporary rest. Nevertheless I hope that my readers might spread links to many of my contributions which are of lasting general actuality.

Since it is always difficult to get orientation about existing articles on a blog, here are some link collections sorted by topics:

Link list of my articles about the USA (which concerns most parts of the World as well, since the US Power Elite meddles in affairs everywhere):

Thanks to my English Speaking Readers

Dear Readers,

thanks a lot for the appreciation of my blog! The increasing number of your visits during 2016 is a great encouragement for me. Of the 58,548 clicks in 2016 (compared to 34,939 in 2015) on my blog 31,816 clicks came from outside Germany (compared to 10,841 in 2015), mostly picking English written articles. I have to thank you also for your patience because surely my English – being a Hamburg born person – is sometimes wanting, despite the fact that I enjoy writing in English very much.

Since it is always difficult to get orientation about existing articles on a blog, here are some link collections sorted by topics:

My writing activities might be a bit reduced during the next menth because of some research projects on my to-do-list. You are invited to spread the links to articles of importance among your friends.

Down you find some graphics about the details of last year.

All the best for the New Year 2017!

Die Zugriffe der letzten 7 Tage – Clicks on my Blog during the last 7 days

I owe a lot to my readers, the fact that people from all over the world go to my Internet Blog is a great encouragement for me! Writing about Science, Politics, Art & Literature (mostly Politics anyway) means lots of work and concentration. Without the knowledge that people read it would ´be much more tuff! Thank you!

Ich verdanke meinen Lesern viel, die Tatsache, dass Menschen aus aller Welt auf meinen Blog gehen bedeutet eine große Ermutigung für mich! Über Wissenschaft, Politik, Kunst und Literatur (meisten natürlich über Politik) zu schreiben, ist anstrengend und mühevoll. Ohne das Wissen, dass Menschen das auch lesen, wär´s viel mühseliger! Danke!

chinua-achebe

At the end of the seventies a good friend from Ghana gave a book to me as a birthday present. It was “A Man of the People” by Chinua Achebe, the great author from Nigeria. Then started my close encounter with this giant of African literature, better to say of world literature (1)! I´ve read the book at least six times by now, but needless to say that I also read the other three books of that brilliant cycle from pre colonial days and the appearance of the “palefaces”, “Things Fall Apart”, over the struggles with the occupant, “Arrow of God” and the time shortly before independence, “No Longer at Ease” to the book mentioned at the beginning and the time after independence. They always kept me breathless to the last page. The poem collection “Beware Soul Brother” got only into my hand some seven years ago. I feel shame but also obliged to admit that Anthills of the Savannah and “An Image of Africa: Racism in Conrad’s „Heart of Darkness“ and other works are still on my “have to read” list!

After all it is “A Man of the People” which always has touched me most. As for a guy (now as old as 65) born in Hamburg you might suspect that the scenery of that time with the colonized habits might be nearer to me, but the reasons are others. Firstly it reflects the time of “new start” which I remember too well, since I was absorbed and integrated into the African Community of Hamburg 1968 with the beginning of my sociological studies. The optimism and the feeling of endangered independence were also vibrating in that African Diaspora in Germany. Secondly the book shows how “European corruption” (I prefer to call what is in Western media generally dubbed “African corruption” so, since it has been brought to Africa from West) is undermining the new won “Independence”, which was never meant to be real independence by the West! Thirdly the presentation of school life as given in the first part of “A Man of the People” is so authentic because it reflexes Achebe´s own experiences as a teacher in the beginning of his professional career. The book is always like a time machine to me because it presents the mental atmosphere of this mixture between optimism of people somehow at the beginning of their adult life and skepticism of the future seemingly so much dominated by the West which was so characteristic of my young days in Hamburg´s African community.

Honestly spoken, as much as Wole Soyinka has deserved the Nobel Prize for Literature, I always felt Achebe should have been the first African Author to get it, irrespective of the fact that if I´d have known him personally I´d have quarreled with him during the days of the “Biafra war” as I used to quarrel with two other good Igbo friends about this imperialist inspired war. But to hell with the Nobel Prize, Africa would have the capacity to establish its own system of honoring “men and women of pen”!

PENALTY OF GODHEAD

The old man´s bed

of straw caught a flame blown

from overnight logs by harmattan´s

incendiary breath. Defying his age and

sickness he rose and steered himself

smoke-blind to safety.

A nimble rat appeared at the

door of his hole looked quickly to left and

right and scurried across the floor

to nearby farmlands.

Even roaches that grim

tenantry that nothing will dislodge

fled their crevices that day on wings they

only use in deadly haste.

Households gods alone

frozen in ritual black with blood

of endless tribute festooned in feathers

perished in the blazing pyre

of that hut.

 From “Beware Soul Brother”

It should be mentioned that apart from my deep personal friendships and literary enthusiasm I have more connections to Nigeria. My little artistic efforts (http://tinyurl.com/3kyjdo6) have been inspired a lot by the art from ancient Nigeria, especially from the art of the Nok people, produced around 500 BC (2) and more even by the art works from Ife (3). Moreover I had and have the pleasure to see a young Nigerian artist, Burxy Sule (http://tinyurl.com/8cs9pz5) rising to wonderful artistic brilliance. With all these close ties I feel more obliged to say to Nigeria: sorry, sorry, you great country, I deeply feel with you!
