I have been living in this illusion that Hollywood is the biggest, strongest, most formidable, outstanding, most prosperous, tactical movie industry and world/country in its own right, but lately have i understood all of these though true is nothing compared to Cameron.
Cameroon I must say is the biggest and most formidable movie industry both geographically and ideologically.
It is the industry with the most complex political plot and maneuvers ever developed, with high social and economic misappropriation all wrapped in speeches and faulty presumptions.
one of the most recent movies or moves on curbing unemployment probably turns out to be a broken ledge, with a rather mark increase in the country’s unemployment rate.
some treacherous ones would rather prefer to call it increased rate of ‘unemployables’. when i graduated from the University, I thought i was so qualified with a second class upper division degree, at least, the University told me so even as it found me ‘worthy in character and learning’. But since then, I have worked with 5 employers in just a year, not that I like to be on the move.
How can you stay still when employers consider you a philanthropist working in a profit making/driven enterprise. Nobody thinks it expedient to even pay your transportation to/back from ‘work’ though its appropriate referring to it as internship or as the employer would…philanthropist gesture…for you lack experience…’, experience which you are thus expected to acquire without working somewhere.
Just so i thought i could make it on my own, by being my on boss, start up my own establishment…but i was short sighted to see that the guys whom i had hitherto worked for are those who control the nation…they are meant to enforce policy/laws for such establishments to take effect. it’s useless telling you they make conditions so difficult because they do not want any competition from any body…they control everything…
Why then should i go to Britain for the Olympics and return back to Cameroon when i could stay there and make a new and better life? “After all, the money we had to be given to prepare for and as compensation for our participation in the games is nothing to write home about.” I understand they would say we have brought shame on our ‘beloved’ Fatherland…really, there isn’t no others death for a dead man.
poor preparations beget poor performance, sure you know this. when we loose sight of that thing which brought the country glory, made her honourable, for which we are known and recognised the world over and in tribalistic hate, blunt political aspirations and utter blindness we deny our Heros the pride of place, in this we sheepishly console ourselves that the future is bright? What then is left of babbling lips…?
