For peoples like ours already in the quarry of crumbling maneuvers, the removal of civilizational referents will be followed by a depersonalization conducive to the acceptance of new forms of submission. It must be said that the bulldozer is already running. On the one hand, it manifests itself through the promotion of a social organization emptied of previously commonly accepted moral standards, and on the other hand through a blossoming of roughresentments relating to subjectivities that are conflicting prejudice.
On a daily basis, we are paying the price for this other world war, which like the previous ones is coming from elsewhere and will not be of any benefit to us,each drop of our blood spilled, from whatever side it may be, contributes on the contrary, to the erosion of our potential for survival as sovereign people. The faceless war that is proposed to us is feeding on our vital energy and only our union, a wall without cracks, can prevent it from committing the carnage programmed at home by others.
In any case, the great peoples of tomorrow are those who will have known, from today, to combine all their forces in order to conquer better areas of development. For the sons and daughters of Cameroon that we are, it is therefore essential to calm down our aggressive impulses, to erase our points of disagreement, to rediscover a sense of cohesion, a common posture and aspirations.
It is now up to us to inscribe in a relationship no longer of force or violence, but of fraternity, awareness, intelligence, citizen and patriotic mobilization. Wecan do it, and our country desservesit.
