Do you think that scientific socialism is a natural conclusion to the collectivist idealogies of African Nationalism and African unity? African Nationalism prioritizes the well being of the African Nation as a whole before the individual, how can African people unite as one nation if we are divided by class? Assata Shakur said in her autobiography that, even if African people managed to rid the Continent of White colonialists, as long as the capitalist structure remained intact, the White colonialists will simply be replaced by Black neo-colonialists. Although some people associate socialism as an international movement (or even a 'White thing') I don't think that there's any contradiction between African Nationalism (that is African economic, political, cultural and social independence from non-African people) and scientific socialism. The only downfall I can see in African countries adopting socialism is dishonest and corrupt governments, as opposed to distributing wealth equally among the people, using wealth for their own purposes and terrorizing dissenters. I'm beginning to think that capitalism is responsible for Western imperialism in Africa (as well as the slave trade) to begin with, African cultures are based on collectivism, not the individualism of the West.
