Monsters, Dictators and Demi-devils are not born. Every human being is born innocent and it is society’s input which changes the whole ball game. Most dictators (with a few exceptions) start out well and with good intentions. Dictators and/or Demi-devils are made by a close elite circle of people with a common agenda with the Dictator/Demi-devil. However usually the masses are used to deify and to spruce up the image of the Monster. It is foolhardy for any community to surrender power to one individual and not suffer the consequences of such a suicidal act.
The African political community has contributed a sizeable number of dictators to the global list. This is not a laughable matter because this has led to a reversal of the gains of liberation and independence from colonial settlers in Africa. By default the African religious community is equally accountable for creating monsters masquerading as Demi-gods whom I prefer to call Demi-devils because the Most High God cannot share his glory with humans. They usually play the RACE OR ETHNIC CARD in politics or the RELIGION CARD to the religious in order to trump up support from the masses. Their strongest and most effective tool is propaganda which they use to brainwash and blind their followers from reality. This is usually characterised by hate speeches against those who question the system from inside and outside. Unfortunately monsters do not have permanent friends or permanent enemies for strategic reasons hence its difficult to know if you are still comrades in arms. The moment a monster has entrenched himself in a position of power and authority, its an uphill task to remove them without causing some damage to innocent people.
Typical of monsters, they survive by drinking the blood of the masses (Metaphorical Language at play here). But once in a while the monster wants to drink the blood of one of its own lieutenants. This is one of the enigmas surrounding the behaviour of a monster. Trouble comes when the blood of the lieutenants tastes sweeter than that of the povo. The monstrous behaviour of a dictator/Demi-devil gets noticed when the inner circle of loyalists are no longer trusted hence their elimination one by one. It is these lieutenants in fear of annihilation who eventually turn against their monster/master hence mobilisation of the masses to fight their corner. No monster can survive without the support of his lieutenants and the masses. No Cult Leader can survive without the support of his religious lieutenants and parishioners too. Hence the best people to remove a monster are those who made that monster. But truth be told, its easier to make a monster than to remove it. In some cases some monsters are discovered too late. One sad example is Jim Jones who killed over nine hundred of his Church members by making them to drink cyanid poison with the hope of a better tomorrow in the sweet bye and bye. Forewarned is forearmed.
