    African Socialism is an economically left-wing and culturally variable ideology. It is a pan-Africanist and socialist ideology that believes in sharing economic resources based on traditional African methods of doing so. There have been multiple conceptions of African Socialism historically, with differing variants coming from many different theorists, leaders and revolutionaries. While African Socialists are typically Marxists, specifically Marxist-Leninists, this is not always the case. It heavily opposes capitalism, colonialism and imperialism.


    African Socialism first can about in 1956 with the book "Les masses africaines et l'actuelle condition humaine". From 1983-1987, a form of African Socialism created by Sankara came to mainstream politics in Burkina Faso called Sankara.png Sankarism Sankar.png. Throughout it's history, Ormarxf.png Marxism has played a major rule in the evolution of African Socialism. From 1952-1966, Cball-Ghana.png Nkrumaism/Nkrumahism became a popular form of African Socialism in Ghanian politics. Following the Angolan Civil War, Cball-Angola.png Angola came under a ML.png Marxist-Leninist government. Cball-Angola.png Angola later removed the ML.png Marxist-Leninist system, but continues to be 'Socialist' to this day.

    Sankarism is an authleft ideology in Burkina Faso based on the ideas of Thomas Sankara, who was an anti-colonial, feminist and Marxist-Leninist revolutionary and president. Sankarism is left-wing, pan-Africanist and anti-imperialist. Thomas Sankara was sometimes dubbed the "Che Guevara of Africa" and stood in opposition to the cult of personality unlike other ML.png Marxist-Leninist ideologies.

    Though Thomas Sankara himself was a communist and Marxist-Leninist, many Burkinabe people and organizations who follow Socdem.png Social Democracy, Pop.png Populism, or Nation.png Nationalism have also dubbed themselves "Sankarists".

    Cball-Ghana.png Nkrumaism Nkrumah.png

    Nkrumaism is the ideology of the Ghanian president and revolutionary Kwame Nkrumah. of The goal of Nkrumaism is the expulsion of colonial powers from Africa, and the union of all African foreign colonies under one borderless African superstate. Kwame Nkrumah's Soc-h.png Socialist ideology was influenced by Ormarxf.png Marx, Orthlen.png Lenin, and Mao.png Mao, and he invested into bringing foreign theorists to help develop his specific ideology. There was initial struggle to differentiate it from other forms of Marxist ideology, but eventually, The Kwame Nkrumah institute reached the conclusion that:

    Nkrumaism is simply the ideology for the new Africa, independent and absolutely free from Imp.png imperialism, organised on a continental scale, founded upon the conception of one and united Africa, drawing its strength from modern science and technology and from the traditional African belief that the free development of each is conditioned by the free development of all.

    Nkrumaism served as the state ideology of Ghana during Kwame Nkrumah's reign. Although Nkrumah and his political scientists heavily invested in the theoretical framework of this ideology, his ultimate goals were never truly realized.

    A term coined by the SWAPO party of Namibia, Socialism "with Namibian characteristics" is a deviation from the original Marxist-Leninist intent of the party.

    Afrsoc has trauma towards Colonial.png colonalism and tries to lead his nation forward. Like his father Pan-Africanism.png Pan-Africanism, he believes in African unity and will persuade his brothers into doing so.
