The individual did to him what other people did to him

Igbos attack other Nigerians by trying to show themselves superior to them and other Nigerians feel angry at them for putting them down and attack them verbally or physically.

Two Igbo paranoid characters called Chukwuma Agwunobi and Nebu Adiele come to Nigerian Internet forums with one objective in mind: to prove to other Nigerians that Igbos are superior to other Nigerians.

One is not quite sure why Igbos are to be seen as a superior people. Igbos were essentially naked until the white man came to their land around 1850.

Igbos did not develop Igbo wide political structure that ruled all Igbos; all they did was having each village rule itself. That is the lowest level of human social and political development.

Igbos did not develop writing or the wheel, indication of civilization. By any indices of human civilization they were a primitive people; in fact, they were savages because they were capturing and selling their people to white folks.

All things considered Igbos ought to see themselves as a primitive people but misguided Igbos come to the public square to talk about Igbos imaginary civilization and superiority to other Nigerians, other Nigerians that actually reached feudal level of political development in that they had kings and aristocrats.

They try to prove that Nnandi Azikiwe and Emeka Ojukwu, prominent Igbo leaders, were superior to other Nigerian leaders. In fact, those two Igbo leaders were mediocre leaders compared to the Yoruba leader, Obafemi Awolowo.

Other Nigerians sensing that Nebu is attacking them by putting down their leaders attack him and his Igbo people and he then sees his self as a victim when, in fact, his attack on other people and their leaders elicited their counter attack on him and his Igbos hence he is the one attacking his self. He is paranoia at work.

I pointed out what he is doing and he went to war attacking me. He attacked not only my person but everything related to me. He put down my father and mother, put down my town, put down where I live in the USA, Alaska; indeed, he investigated me talking to folks who do not even know who I am and whatever snippets  of information he got he exaggerated and used it to put me down.

His purpose in existence is to put folks down; he is operating under the paranoid assumption that putting people down would shame them and make him important.

To the contrary, he merely shows himself a paranoid person at work.

Mentally healthy people do not put other people down but seek ways to uplift their spirits; healthy people see human beings suffering, many with low self-esteem and low self-confidence, in fact, many with depression and try to cheer them up but these Igbo apes compound human suffering by putting folks down.

The sad part of it all is that this unfortunate character called Nebu Adiele really does not know that he is coming across as an asshole; instead, he thinks that he is a genius...he is the Donald Trump type of "stable genius", as Trump characterized his self; both Nebu and Trump have narcissistic and paranoid personalities.

These two paranoid Igbos and many Igbos attacked themselves by attacking other people and other people in self-defense attack them; they do it because they desire the delusion that they could ever be superior to other people. No individual human being or group can be superior to other people; people are existentially the same and coequal.

These creatures are paranoid persons who attack other people to get other people to counter attack them hence they attack themselves through other persons attack on them.

When other people attack you, the individual, they did so in response to your prior attack on them hence you attacked you through their attack on you.

Every time you see other people as inferior to you, you have attacked them psychologically and they will counter attack you, verbally or physically, and when they do so you have attacked you through them.

If you are sane you do not attack other people by putting them down, you love and respect all people and they will love and respect you.

When other people love and respect you because you love and respect them you have loved and respected you.

Whatever happens to you in life you did to you through what other people did to you. Stop and think about this view of life. Of course it is counter intuitive and counter rational but give it a thought, anyway.

Have a happy new year living in this new pattern of thinking, a pattern that gives you peace and joy, not the old ego pattern that attacks other people and when they counter attack you in self-defense you see you as a victim and blame them. There are no victims in this world; we are each responsible for what happens to us in life.

This is a spiritual realism that will transform your life for good, not the old ego pattern of living that always attack other people and have them attack you and you live in conflict while seeing you as innocent (phony innocence, of course).

Real innocence is when you see all people as the same and coequal with you and you love and respect all of them, men and women regardless of their race and ethnicity.

We must stop our war on ourselves.


Although I addressed this writing to Igbos, I am sure that, by now, you know that when I talk about
Igbos I am really talking about all of us, human beings. Have a happy
new year. Your year will be happy if you respect and love all people
for that elicit their love and respect for you; in love and respect
we live in happiness; verbally and or physically abuse other people
and you will not live happily.
