Democracy, human rights, civil rights, freedom of choice and thought, ideals long sought after, and fought for, over many centuries of tyranny and cruelty, have been hijacked, when they came, by a... More > hedonistic and decadent minority who pursue their objectives under these banners but deny decent citizens their own democracy, rights and freedoms. In spite of copious legislation, often based on denial, new forms of racism, oppression by the state and decadent social morality and conventions, orchestrated and popularized by the “free” press, make life unbearable for, not only the poor and weak but also for, decent law abiding citizens. The frequency and pervasiveness of these events tend to act as stimuli to socially conscious persons who react to them in their different ways. The few poems in this book represent one such reaction.< Less

More > human interactive activity. Wars, revolutions, racism, xenophobia, imperialism, colonialism, genocide, missionary activism and zeal, etc., are impossible without some form of stampede.

Perspectives from An Armchair By Benedict Nnolim
Paperback: $19.41
Prints in 3-5 business days
The opinions of armchair philosophers, to whom life is in black and white, are not often taken seriously, probably, because they are, often, too loudly expressed or, irritatingly, argumentative.... More > These opinions arise, however, from social concern and from exasperation at the apparent lack of concern, by the rest of the population, about serious matters of human existence. Some armchair philosophers have, consequently, given up the world as mad or stupid and will turn to the sports, rather than read the news or opinion, pages of newspapers. Many issues of concern to armchair philosophers, however, deserve greater attention and reflection by the rest of us. In this book, the opinions, of an armchair philosopher, on cultural, social, economic and political issues, which trouble individuals, Western civilization, the continent of Africa, and two countries, Nigeria and the United Kingdom, are discussed.< Less
