Root Causes and Efficient Solutions for Dealing with Migrations from Africa to Europe

Once again, why poor governance is common in Africa? Because for a long time mediocre, incompetent and brutal leaders have been imposed in Africa for facilitating the plundering of natural resources in this continent…

Holding elections is not enough to get competent and effective leaders… Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo are the perfect exemples… Kagame and Kabila have been imposed by fake elections only to plunder Congolese natural resources… Never such plundering has been high like it was after the elections of 2006 that legitimated for the first time Joseph Kabila…

Many election processes in Africa are totally rigged; they don’t help African countries to select the competent and effective leaders to build fair and efficient economic systems capable of bringing social transformation to help African youth building their lives within their communities…

Once again, I remind people this: you don’t often meet Brazilian citizens among refugees or «migrants» in Europe or North America… Brazil is not a developed country; you have corrupted politicians, huge economic and social inequalities; endemic violence in some Brazilian cities… Why you don’t have massive waves of Brazilians leaving their country like in Mexico, other Latin American nations or African ones?

Although all flaws of the political and economic systems of Brazil; one thing is certain: Brazil is a functioning political and economic systems that provides to Brazilians a sense of mastering themselves their own Destiny… Brazil is not a plundering system of its natural resources where the majority of Brazilians feel like they are foreigners in their own land and communities…

Most of Brazilians believe that although all setbacks with corrupted politicians, inequalities and some endemic violence; they have a country that offers a sens of Equal Rights, Equal Chance and Equal Opportunities for those who want to work hard in building their lives… Brazilians are aware of the flaws of their country and believe that they have the power to change the system… It is not a random fact that Brazil has inspired many «social change» and «liberation» movements such the «theology of liberation»…

People often decide to leave their lands and their communities when they become hopeless; when they are convinced that no matter how hard they make it; there will be zero outcome in terms of change for their country and their personal lives…

Many young Africans are becoming hopeless for their countries; they think that no change is politically and economically possible… They don’t even trust the political process, even with elections… They have seen how most of uprisings have ended up in fighting of war lords and other criminal groups perpetuating the same kind of plundering of their nations instead of being real revolutions… They are hopeless and want to leave their lands and communities…

Europe and North America have huge historic, moral, economic and political responsibilities in the making of the disasters in African countries… They are now harvesting what has been seeded in this continent for too long: recklessness and destruction caused by the pillages of Africa… As long as this will not change; everybody will feel the pain…
