YOU DON'T NEED MY LESSONS DOC.


Freedom and liberation is the rule of law and the existence of human and people's rights: due process of law, universal adult suffrage, freedom of speech and association and religion, freedom from oppression and fear, freedom to think and reason without fear, freedom to agree or disagree with government without being imprisoned, etc., etc.
Nkrumah abolished all these freedoms and made them mere slogans, that is why our independence became an empty shell. His misrule has led to the present constitutional changes wherein the one-party state and life presidency have been constitutionally abolished, and wherein the people have been given the right to take up arms and rebel against a government attempting to take the sovereignty from the people. Today, by law, every Ghanaian has the right to take up arms and overthrow any government that tries to repeat Nkrumah's nonsense. These things are entrenched in our present democratic dispensation. Now, you could say that the total repudiation of Nkrumah's brutal dictatorship is the only good legacy Nkrumah left Ghana.
Challenge any of the issues I have raised here. I could even agree with the achievements you credit Nkrumah with, but these do not disturb my core argument that he was a brutal dictator. However, you stand a chance to convince me if you can point out anything I have said here that is not true.
