Blessed Love Idren
I would like to reason on this but I do not know much on the subject. I am away from I books for a few more days so I am limited in I education.
I want to refrain from speaking like I know what I am talking about on the subject, but a few things come to mind. As many of us know, HIM Haile Selassie I was very cautious to avoid advocating for interference in other country's decisions. As the leader of the only independent African Kingdom, I think there was a fine line HIM had to walk to speak the truth and advocate for worldwide African freedom, while also maintaining Ithiopia's independence and avoiding interference from outside countries. I don't know much about Nkrumah, but it sounds as if he may have had more ties to Russia and communism than to England or US or capitalism, especially later in his time as Prime Minister. As many of us know, in the political climate of the cold war, this could have led to increased interference from the west, from spies or economic pressure, etc. This "choosing of sides" so to speak, could have emboldened his decision to speak out against the internal affairs of the US, wile also proving to be disastrous for remaining independent.
We all know that US policy on human rights was terrible at the time that HIM Haile Selassie I and Nkrumah were leaders of their country, but speaking out on that subject could have led to consequences that are beyond what a normal citizen of any country would face. I know this doesn't necessarily make it correct or righteous to stay quiet, but this could possibly be the reasoning.
I will try to educate myself further on the subject and look forward to learning from any of the Is that are more knowledgeable on the subject than I
Give Thanks Idren Zion Mountain for the reasoning subject
