Isn’t all philosophy supposed to be studied critically? | Decolonizing philosophy?...

Interesting word  "decolonizing" which  I have heard in my field service and when I read articles regarding Islam and Africa. 

Victimization of Africa by 'colonist' nations is part of well-documented old history...of the past 400 years. So to counteract this we now have the major fashion trend to de-colonize everything - even ideas.... at all our universities. So I presume they want modern philosphy (because I cannot think that previously colonized nations go back as far as Aristotle and Socrates). 

But- these nations have been in political and financial turmoil since the colonizers left.... so what major contribution regarding philosophy could they bring to the table? They definitely cannot bring any good ideas to promote equality, justice or peace in the world because we have seen the most atrocious genocides and poverty and class inequality coming from Africa in the last 60 years.  

So I conclude that these students are demanding change to the curriculum out of ignorance and are bowing to the new propaganda trend that is present on all university campuses in Europe and USA.

Islam also has a major issue with "crusaders and colonists" since the Turkish empire was destroyed by colinist nations during the First World War and parts of the middle east came under Brtish and French control. 

 There is only one major philosophy they can offer the world and to which everyone must bow- Islam. So the derogatory term "colonists" is used in a lot of their literature. Since most of the Middle East departments and universities have been hi-jacked by proponents of Islam, and the political activists for Islam are on all campuses, I am not surprised to see this new wave of politisized curricula being democratically demanded by the ignorant masses. 

My take on this: the world is really going crazy as all kinds of extremist political. propaganda is being spread throughout the world (like never in history before because of social media) and all kinds of evil organizations are infiltrating and spreading their polarizing agendas especially amongst the youth.

It is therefore wise to follow the directive of Jesus to be no part of this world and not participate in its political battles... be careful as serpents. Be discreet and wise like the slave.

I see a political trend in the world which was predicted in Rev 16: 14..." it is expressions of demons (propaganda) that is going out into the world to gather the nations together for Armageddon. "  

This is only the beginning of a world-wide trend which is already in progress and escalating fast.  One is not allowed to publicly and logically expose or refute bad or immoral ideas as 'morally wrong' because then you are promoting "hate". It will eventually affect our preaching work as well.

How bad this will get in future- no one knows. We are aware that it will lead to Aramageddon, so we can only watch and wait on Jehovah in silence as the bible advises us to do.

I was moved to write this poem during the summer of 1998 while in the depths of grief due to the loss of my dear Mother in May, 1998. I was told about an illustration a circuit overseer related at an assembly. He said that we are on a train destined for the new world. However, many of our friends are getting tired and going to sleep. When that happens on a literal train, you are taken to the sleep-car. They are in the sleep-car, riding right along with us to Paradise. I felt this is a more comforting mental picture than that of my Mama lying in a box at the cemetery.  By  Ruth  Bohonsuik. THE PARADISE TRAIN©
      By Ruth Bohonsuik
      We're on a forward moving train to Paradise,
      Whose passengers are booked for eternal life.
      However, some on that train get sick and fall asleep.
      They're sent to the sleep-car so they can rest in peace.
      They are still on our train,
      Riding with us - as we go.
      Our destination is Paradise,
      Only then will it unload.
      The Great Crowd is conducted off the train,
      Then Christ Jesus, our Master, speaks,
      To those in the sleep-car - "come on out,"
      The time has come for the end of all grief.
      Our loved ones are finally awakened,
      And received with unspeakable delight,
      Known only to those who are faithful,
      And preserved through Armageddon's fight.
      The depth of sadness and grief once known,
      As promised, is matched by joy untold.
      Never again by death will loved ones be severed.
      Together we praise, the Great Jehovah forever.
      The things we will do! Ah! The plans we will make.
      Unhindered by illness, pain, sadness, or aches.
      Fear will be gone, that enemy death is no more,
      Are some of the things our dear Father has in store.
      In the name of Christ Jesus, your Only Begotten Son,
      We prayerfully thank you Jehovah, for you are the One,
      Who lovingly arranged for us to come aboard this train,
      That safely transported us,   'From  Paradise  Lost  to  Paradise  Regained'.
