And here begins this outrageous story. The west has wasted its youthful generation and they do not hold any promise. The system makes it so hard to have and raise children so many millions opt out due to economic considerations. The western population is on the decline. There is little prospect of any natural increase in birth rate to offset the population loss. Immigration is used to maintain the population balance. At the same time, millions of westerners are sick. Sick from the decadence that daily marks their life. Sick from the over use of active chemicals and mechanicals which they thought had provided them with this great advantage over the rest of humanity. In the western world there is a health crisis of a gigantic proportion. The rich and middle class of the western world especially are sick from their over self abusive life style. They are wasted with cancers and organ failures. They are laid low by internal decay which threatens their significant internal organs such as livers, hearts, kidneys, even testicles etc.
That the state is inferior to its peoples, irrespective of race, continent, region, religion/ belief system, is irrefutable. As a result, and graciously for that matter, Premier John Major of Britain, back in 1992, did not utter some obscenity during the period, à la his predecessor 25 years before, of willing to “accept” the death of “one half million” Serb or Albanian or Croat to keep Yugoslavia “intact”; neither did Major dabble into some nonsense of the “inviolability” or “indivisibility” of the Yugoslav state, an artificial assemblage concocted at the same time in 1918 as the equally inchoate Czechoslovakia and Soviet Union. Pointedly, these two oft-repeated vulgarities just quoted were a favourite of James Harold Wilson’s on Nigeria in the 1960s as well as by Nigerian genocidists whose state, cobbled together by Britain in 1914, also shares the same non-organic kinship as the central/east European examples.
In the light of the above, Young cannot fail to contend with the distinct possibility that instead of his business associate heading for the European city with the spelling that starts with the alphabet “o”, Oslo, to collect his coveted “peace prize” later this year, he could well terminate his journey at a different city further south – still in Europe but name beginning with “t”, The Hague: to answer charges at the international criminal court house situated there for “crimes against humanity” committed during the Igbo genocide of 1966-1970. Given Young’s three decades of friendship with Obasanjo, it is not unlikely that either the prosecution team or indeed the Obasanjo’s defence panel might wish to summon Young to The Hague to testify as witness during proceedings. So, as Young prepares his Obasanjo-support dossier for the Nobel award committee, it is unthinkable that he would omit the cardinal features of the Obasanjo legacy in 40 years of public life deeply embedded in the Igbo genocide.
