Africans and Negative Competition in Canadian Factories: Revamping Canada’s Immigration, Employment, and Welfare Policies?

Thursday 12 February 2015, author(s)-editor(s) Peter Ateh-Afac Fossungu

According to Fossungu, we need healthy competition for progress. Competition that is not geared toward progress is negative competition. No competition or the absence of self-help is negative competition. With factories competing healthily, consumers have a variety of quality goods and services from which to choose. The entire community benefits when people in any grouping are competing positively; thus making the rules of competition graphical. The central focus of this book is the extent to which Canadian regulations apply without discrimination to all of Canada and to everyone, individuals and corporations alike. A swift answer is affirmative. But is that really it? The book is also about voluntary slavery, which is worse than forced enslavement.

Drawing on Ignorance Theory, the book argues that the worst thing that can happen to anyone is to be ignorant of one’s ignorance. He who does not know what he does not know will never know. Voluntary African slaves generally employ ’One Has No Choice’ (On n’a pas le choix) to cloak their having chosen not to secure their rights. Fossungu demonstrates why he considers this an escapist way of shying away from doing the normal thing, thus giving the dictator or oppressor reason to dictate and oppress with impunity. This is Fossungu at his provocative and controversial best.
