New worlds in the morning...

Today is Easter Sunday in the English calendar, a time for renewal, new life and the challenges and rewards of spring and summer.

And layered on top of that are ongoing long lasting changes, driven by humans and forces beyond our control.

The era of overt colonialism changed last century, as former colonies became states under the illusion of having gained independence.

Kwame Nkrumah, an African nationalist, was instrumental in creating the state of Ghana in Africa in 1957. He was overthrown in a coup in 1966, largely facilitated by the former colonizers, but with popular support.

Nkrumah had grand visions of a United Africa, akin to the United States, where he spent quite a bit of time.

But alas, he turned into another little dictator using the tribal governance model to suppress any opposition to himself.

And Africa generally, has reverted back to the tribal governance model, within the confines of former colonial borders.

Now, as for Klaus Schwab and his grand vision of a new world order: With new kinds of people, molded by his ideas running the show? Like Prince Justin and Chrystia, anointed by Schwab, running the Canadian shit show?

"New worlds in the morning never come"
