Only Continental AfrikaDemocracy or AFRIKADEMOCRACY or AFRIKAPEOPLECRACY and not Western democracies can achieve and guarantee for all the People of Continental Afrika, the mass participation, mass support, mass recognition and protection every Democracy/ Government worth the name needs and deserves to be strong, powerful, legitimate and effective in satisfying the needs and aspirations of all its people.

Western style democracies in Continental Afrika can only serve and benefit only the few pro-Western elite in foreign languages and terms which deliberately exclude 70 percent of our population from actively understanding and fully participating and controlling their own political destiny.

Continental Afrikan Democracy, on the other hand, offers all Continental Afrikans the opportunity to establish, run and control the Continental Afrikan Government of their own choice and of all Continental Afrikans by all Continental Afrikans and for all Continental Afrikans in their own Continental Afrikan Language led by AFRIKACENTRIC leaders who are products of their own people speaking to their own people not in foreign languages but in the Continental Afrikan language their people understand and can relate to.

Hence, only Continental Afrikan Democracy and not Western democracies can give all Continental Afrikans at home and abroad, a real Continental Afrikan Democratic world order, systems, institutions, policies, values and true Continental Afrikan Leadership totally committed to better living conditions, and total political, economic and social Democracy, Accountability, Freedom and Justice for all Continental Afrikans.

Foreign-languages based- and controlled- Western style democracies for today's Afrikans to practice as governments of the few civilian or military leaders with their retinue of "yes-master" women and men can only be "democratic" by Western/colonial/neo-colonial standards but highly undemocratic and anti-Continental Afrikan by Ancient and Traditional Continental Afrikan Standards.

If Western powers will not practice Continental Afrikan Democracy but their own, why should today's Afrikans in Ghana and Afrika be fooled or forced into practicing Western style democracies that exist to deprive them of the knowledge, power and benefits of their own Continental Afrikan Democracy?

Continental Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans is as logical and imperative as French democracy for the French, British democracy for the British or White American democracy for White Americans. Continental Afrikan and not western style democracy can save all Continental Afrikans because only Continental Afrikan Democracy has the power to keep Continental Afrikans together for over 10,000 years.

Long before the birth of Europe and its Western democracies, Continental Afrikan Democracy was the world's first human-made Democracy on Earth. This means. Continental Afrikan Democracy is the Mother of the very Western style democracies we now prefer to our own.

Hence, Continental Afrikan Democracy is therefore the most ancient, the most lasting and reliable of all democracies in the world. It has resisted and survived hundreds of years of Western and Arab slavery, colonial and neo-colonial assaults meant to rob Continental Afrikans of their Afrikan Democracy without which no democracy is democracy in Continental Afrika or anywhere else.

In other words, Continental Afrikan Democracy is not and cannot be found in White America's White House or Congress or in Britain's Downing Street or Westminster or in France's Champs d'Elysees or French Parliament, as we have been conditioned to believe or think.

In the same way, the real Continental Afrikan Constitution of all Continental Afrikans by all Continental Afrikans and for all Continental Afrikans cannot be written or found in colonial languages that 70 percent of our people do not speak, write or understand.

Continental Afrikan Democracy has nothing to do with debating whether or not we should be ruled by a President, Prime Minister, Ministers, Law-makers, Judges and Lawyers as if before these foreign titles and terms were introduced in our Continental Afrikan World, we had no Continental Afrikan Leadership Titles and Terms of our own that the bulk of our people could understand and relate to. Continental Afrikan Democracy is also not and cannot be found on the pages of Western-based reports, drafts or written constitutions and so on, which mean something only to the few and nothing to the bulk of our people.

Besides, Continental Afrikan Democracy also has nothing to do with Western Style Multiparty democracies, systems and constitutions such as alien political parties, voter's registration campaigns, referendum, ballot boxes and so on, designed and controlled by the few to satisfy the needs and wants of the privileged few be they civilian or military and their masters.

By the same token, Continental Afrikan Democracy or AFRIKADEMOCRACY or AFRIKAPEOPLECRACY is far and above any Western/colonial and neo-colonial based democracy, government or constitution that has no foundation and legitimacy in the people but the product of a few civilian or military experts and leaders that can only be good for the waste paper basket with every passing regime.

Consequently, the Continental Afrikan Democracy Twenty-First Century Continental Afrika should be fighting to have, practice, control and benefit from can only be found deeply buried in the hearts, minds and souls of the bulk of our people.

As a product of all Continental Afrikan People to serve the needs and wants of all Continental Afrikans in a Continental Afrikan-created-and-controlled Environment, Continental Afrikan Democracy, contains its own checks and balances that make one-man civilian or military tyrannical rule impossible if not unnecessary.

While various Western-based democracies come to and go from Continental Afrika, our Ancient Traditional Continental Afrikan Democracy/Government/ Authorities live and continue to prosper in the hearts, minds and spirits of the bulk of our Continental Afrikan Masses.

This explains why, today, in spite of the total control and supremacy given to our usurped colonial/neo-colonial democracies/governments all over the continent and which have been monopolized by our Euro-centric Afrikan elite and kept away from our Traditional Authorities of Continental Afrikan Democracy, three quarters or 70 percent of all Continental Afrikans still enjoy the peaceful rule and stability of Traditional Afrikan Governments we erroneously call "tribal" or "local".

This means, with time and increased awareness, our Ancient/Traditional Continental Afrikan Democracy, Government or Power will recover back its stolen or usurped Democratic powers from our present baseless and non-viable Western style democracies, governments and leaderships that do us more harm than good.
