“Karl Marx was wrong—his famous dismissive statement was not totally accurate. Religion is not so much the opium of the people as it is the homeopathy of the human Condition.”

Excerpt From: Wole SoyinkaOf Africa

“Mr. Soyinka’s motivation for writing Of Africa was his search for an African humanism that could counter the deadly consequences of religious fanaticism. He urges Africans to remember their continent’s traditions and recognize that tolerance is at the center of African spirituality.” -
George Ayittey, Wall Street Journal
