Technology has many effects on society. It has helped develop many countries’ economies, including today’s global economy, and has helped the rise of certain countries, communities, and people. And on the other hand, technology has had its adverse effects on certain industries, countries, communities, and people. Innovations have always influenced the values of a society, The world has become a global community, the advancements in technology, have enhanced the ability for the global community to, communicate, interact, transact, and unite, from anywhere on the globe. Unfortunately, these very same technological advancements in society have not necessarily increased these same opportunities for the African Continent and its people. For various reason, these technological advancement is not readily available, unaffordable, or simply not introduced, or withheld. Without acquiring these technological advancements, it inhibits the Africa continent, and the Pan African Diaspora to achieve, interact, transact, or communicate effectively. The lack of technology also limits Africans, and the Pan-African Diaspora from harnessing the resources on the continent, to advance a people and Make Africa Great Again. especially when you take into account, the world around Africa has become wealthy, because of these technological advancements, and other means, and methods that have been incorporated on the Continent for the sole advancement, and prosperity of individuals, business, countries, and continents, not Africa or the African people, unfortunately for far to long taking advantage, by continually extracting, and explore the rich and vast resources of Africa. Its imperative that the Continent comes of age in these spaces and in the era of technology threw out the land, which will enable advancements in other sectors, create a system of operation, industries, opportunities, effective and efficient models of business, etc. and in turn promote growth, prosperity on the Continent, and Global competitiveness. Making Africa Great Again.
African Diaspora 6th Region
The African diaspora is the worldwide collection of communities descended from Native African or people from African, predominantly in the Americans. The term is most commonly refers to the descendants of the West and Central Africans who were enslaved and shipped to the Americas via the Atlantic slave trade between the 16th and 19th centuries, with their largest populations in Brazil , the United States and Haiti. Many scholars have challenged conventional views of the African diaspora as a mere dispersion of black people. For the descendent of Slaves, and the descendent of Africa, it is a movement of liberation that opposes the implications of racialization. The reality is that Africans and their descendants abroad struggle to reclaim power over their lives through voluntary migration, cultural production, and political conceptions and practices. a presence of cultures of resistance with similar objectives throughout the global diaspora.
The African Union defined the African diaspora as consisting of people of Native African origin living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship and nationality and who are willing to contribute to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union.” Its constitutive act declares that it shall “invite and encourage the full participation of the African diaspora as an important part of our continent, in the building of the (AU) African Union.
The meaning of spirituality has developed and expanded over time, and various connotations can be found alongside each other. Traditionally, spirituality referred to a religious process of re-formation which “aims to recover the original shape of man”, oriented at “the image of God In some African contexts, spirituality is considered a belief system that guides the welfare of society and the people therein and eradicates sources of unhappiness invoked by evil. In traditional society prior to colonization and extensive introduction to Christianity or Islam, religion was the strongest element in society influencing the thinking and actions of the people. Hence spirituality was a sub-domain of religion. Despite the rapid social, economic and political changes of the last century, traditional religion remains the essential background for many African people. No matter the faith or religion you are or choose, for so long as we hold firm to our spirituality, do not give way to evil, cruelty, and brutality, by afflicting those atrocities on ourselves, we must unite regardless of one’s religion, believing that the spirit of God lives in all is creation, providing life to the land in the things therein, for all the people of the Motherland For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit for the Father is seeking such to worship him. The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
The economy of Africa consists of the trade, industry, agriculture, and human resource of the continent. As of 2019, approximately 1.3 Billion people were living in 54 countries in Africa. Africa is a resource-rich continent. Recent growth has been due to growth in sales in commodities, services, and manufacturing. West African, East Africa, Central Africa, and South Africa in particular, are expected to reach a combined GDP of $29 trillion by 2050.
The Development Bank reported Africa to be the world’s second-fastest-growing economy and Africa as the future economic growth engine of the world. This is welcoming news; but we can’t lose sight that most of the economy, is foreign entities, and countries, that or the investors and own the business by enlarge that continues to exploit the Continent natural resources, and its people, they are the true beneficiaries from the Growth of the economy, the economy is doing very little to change the plight, and the living condition of the impoverished.
