    I watched this video for the first time and it seems to support my preconceived views on the topic.

    I'd appreciate any other information or vids fellows brothers and sisters have on the subject.

    For example anything on the borders before Europeans arrived would be welcomed.

    Thanks in advance.

    Peace.

    Before Gaddafi was mercilessly killed he had a beautiful thing going for his citizens.

    His ideals should be adopted

    Yes, this started way back when Europe shipped it's surplus population to Africa.

    Watch this documentary it will show what Gaddafi had planned for his country and the whole of Africa.

    If other African leaders copy his ideals it would make for a better standard of living for all.

    Nigeria is in a strong position to take up the baton.

    Afrika, resource-wise, is arguably the richest continent on the globe. The continentals
    are poor for reasons succinctly expressed by jamesfrmphilly.

    To summarise Gaddafi expelled the colonial powers.

    He invested the oil wealth in his people promising to house every citizen before his own parents.

    Libyans got free electricity

    All university graduates on passing their degrees were paid by the state until they got a job.

    Every citizen that bought a new car the state paid half towards it.

    He brought water to the surface of the dessert so that they could farm the land.

    He wanted to introduce a currency that would raise the living standards for all Africans.
