Writing is a hobby, more than a hobby but a passion I put a lot of energy in. It is tasking, requires a lot of thinking and research but in the end, it is rewarding.

The Effect of Religion and Politics on Nigerian Youth.
Timeline - September 1st - 30th September
Religion and politics are two different entities, both created by human beings as guided by the forces each founder finds worth believing in.
They both are integral elements of our societies which are used to govern, shape and direct us to where to go.
Religion supplies spiritual guidance while politics supplies physical guidance, however both can be mixed in such a way that today’s youth finds it hard to seperate the two thereby creating a systematic loss of opinions or the will power to question laws being made which creates a situation that renders the youth unable to reason for himself.
Reasoning is an ability and an activity.
What shapes these?
If Religion and Politics shape these reasoning skills, how?
What is the remedy to this brainwashing and eventual psyschological manipulation?
How can the Nigerian youth recover and move on from a century of brainwashing of religion and extortion from politics?
The above questions are some of the issues I will be discussing in the paper and when completed, have it minted in the Philosopher’s DAO mintbase store.
Also, I would love to read it to a metaverse audience and organise an event in the physical world during the book lunch (with funding from the marketing dao), where other writers will be invited to read and discuss their papers too, afterwhich they will be onboarded.
The objectives of this paper are:
a. To create awareness about the impact of religion and politics on the Nigerian youth
b. To shed light on the negativity of religious and political fanatism and the harm they do on the Nigerian Youth
c. To show how one can quickly detect, walk away or recover from religious and political brainwashing.
d. To create an awareness about the Near Ecosystem in the academic world
Nigeria and Africa in general need enlightenment and it can start from one person.
The truth from one man can set a million free.
One may ask: How is this book relevant to the Philosopher’s DAO?
Philosophy is academic and practical. it is an embodiment of knowledge, reality and existence. This book is an academic approach to the effects of religion and politics on the Nigerian youth.
The word ‘Nigerian’ is a reference to all African youth, so basically, this book is written for all African youth.
The Philosopher’s DAO is known for their various educational papers and textbooks which have been a great contribution to the ecosystem and I believe this book adds a diversity to the list of books and papers already submitted with the Philosopher’s DAO and apart from that, the book represents or talks about two concepts (of Religion and Politics), which are two big issues in Africa right now.
The topics are valid and relevant to the modern African world, thereby making the book worth writing, supported by the Philosopher’s DAO and the Near Ecosystem.
Enlightenment comes and can be shared in many ways. Some share through music, some through movies while I choose to share mine through books. Let them be awake, aware and active.
When this book is done, it will be made available on the Near Ecosystem as NFT so everybody interested can find the book there.
It will also be an avenue to make the near ecosystem accessible to people who are not aware of the Near Protocol and bring them onboard as creatives.
Long live The Philosopher’s DAO,
