As in any business and especially in social and economic enterprises, strategic changes including questioning of initial choices are possible to adapt to the market, the ecosystem or quite simply to the cycles and environments influencing the project. We have chosen to create a project portfolio and not to do serial entrepreneurship according to the changing needs of the market but to remain faithful and coherent with an idea of destiny to be accomplished. It is in the interest of being on a Life Odyssey. Thus, under the main challenges to which we have agreed, we can cite, among others, the use restricted to the simple communicative and Marketing practicality of news feeds; limitation of publications; the adaptation of ethnic entrepreneurship towards international entrepreneurship and the community economy towards social and solidarity economy as well as the setting to calm lifetime endeavour of the Black Kingdom self-project to highlight the intercultural richness within identity; the generation of a management specialty called “strategic organization” from the exclusive ideology of the Ka Method; the denomination of its structures in Ka under the name of Management Integration Consortiums. Finally, the effort for the cause of socioeconomic sovereignty of ethnic and informal realms through the silent revolution gives way to the offer of intra and / or intermediation (moderation) within community between migrants for socio-economic reasons and citizens of host areas.
This is the announcement of our strategic organization specialization offer between Non-Profit Organizations (NPO) and For Profit Organization (FPO)
The Wisemen Council was created in 2009 in Montreal, QEC, in response to a need for a Project Management Consultant with transversal skills. The positioning gradually evolved cumulatively towards the support of ethnic entrepreneurs with the composition of the Doctrine of political economy of the Ka Method in 2012 for the diaspora in the West, then towards international development through the empowerment of informal entrepreneurs leading in 2018 to a Schism of our Consulting Firm and Think Tank with arbitrary policies of various capacity building and the application of a model of feminism contrary to traditional and mystical local values against a privileged and pressing access to resources Southern countries. Barter considered unjust in terms of training and cooperation which we want to substitute for Models of Organization Viable for Entrepreneurship Settling (MOVES) and Shared Vision Partnerships (SVP). In 2020, the civil rights of Economic Actors and Community Leaders of our target populations (Perfora: Ritual people Islamologist and Ancestrologist; Diaspora: Virtual Allophone people; Fraternia: South America, Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia) are threatened by Stress ( danger), Manipulation (debt) and Doubt (data) with a new type of Great Anguish on Health paving the way for the virtualization of World Finance. So we have chosen to launch ourselves with the weapons, the souls and the manes at our disposal to work towards the manifestation of our Vision of the Market Economy: “Make the informal economy a quality alternative to the Liberal System for the advent of Economy in Religion and Ecology in Spirituality by replacing Man within the Heart with individual Philosophies around a Faith of Simplicity, all for the Socioeconomic Sovereignty of the Homes of the South, West and their Sympathizers ”. It is for this purpose that we propose to support in Strategy (Competition), projects and initiatives for better performance and adaptation to Ecosystems in the context of the rise back of Black Civilization around the World. You are invited to join us in this challenge according to your interests because we are scanning a wide range of Synergy (Concurrent) possibilities through products, services and routines. In God our Trust.
For immediate release
“The Ka Method: Modern socio-economic tales from an African Wiseman”
The major individual book work on identity and ethnic entrepreneurship is released
Montreal, November 15, 2018—Today marks the official release of “The Ka Method,” one of the most useful individual works of the moment. A body of knowledge on Community Economy and an Anthology of Renewal of Ethnic Attitude make up the collection. Since the beginning of research on economically driven migration and particularly on the phenomenon of ethnic entrepreneurship in the 1970s, only few documents have been written or intended for those most affected, let alone by one of them. This timely composition and analysis work conducted by Arnaud Segla, Project Management and Business Engineering Consultant, came right on purpose to fill the void. “The Ka Method” is a set of reference publications where one can find a number of practical answers to simple issues with intricate and critical consequences. The book compilation will be available on Amazon sites under #Arnaud Segla.
The body of knowledge in Community Economics developed by the Wisemen Council consulting firm and think tank is aligned with an editorial line that deals with economic development, ethnic identity and sustainable development. It targets both ethnic communities, diasporas, people in southern countries as well as their community leaders and economic actors. This is the first time that a lucid and informed look describes what these people experience and suggests solutions from their own endogenous philosophy: the informal way. The approach aims to reclaim economic sovereignty and ethnic pride that these people have been deprived of.
“A community is a group of individuals who share the same particular method of communication and relationship revolving around a cultural, economic or social attribute that defines them or to which they identify themselves with. The community economy aims at providing communities with tools and strategies, in the form of utilities, that will make them economically sustainable and to promote equitable interactions among them.” Defines author Arnaud Segla.
Anthology brings a revival in literary composition from the observations of a witness of our era who looks at the challenges of maintaining ethnic pride despite immigration conditions that are sometimes restrictive. In a world where religion has become taboo, it features both spiritual aspects and social role issues that confront some of the orthodoxy comfort.
More than 15 years of migration and maturation life are recorded in the flagship collection Le Cri de la Calebasse consisting of four books. The author uses the universal language of Love, Humour, Wisdom and Hope to constitute a legacy for future generations and provide sound arguments for or against the new rise of the black civilization throughout the world. These books written in a timeless language remain easy to read and accessible to all.

The concept of Gonzo was developed by Hunter S. Thompson and applied to journalism including with the characteristic of first-person writing and subjectivity. It would also mean in Italian “silly, credulous, fooled”. It is also to this day a style of pornography, a character of the MuppetShow and a Japanese animation studio. (Source Wikipedia)
In our case we use it in several declensions of a family of hashtags relating to the dimensions of the project of The Wisemen Council (The Ka Method). “Gonzo” for us means “the pleasure of living simply” and indicates that a migrant for economic reasons intra and interstate (People of endeavour and the Soul wonderer) must enjoy a Life both authentic and spiritual to fulfill themselves humanly and materially from which lies its importance … For God.
Eco animism or animist economy aims to use the attitude and animist thought and its relationship to the world (in respect of nature, mankind, interactions between cosmic forces) to guide economic choices and managerial methods. The practice of rites and cults is left to the discretion of individuals. This sentence has its importance.
The Ka method is part of this new vision of the business world. It consists in giving a soul to one’s company and personifying it while creating the necessary conditions for its development and fulfillment. The economic agent is identified with its believing individual character. The purpose of this method is to establish the necessary performance for the acquisition of simple wealth; that is, the goods necessary for the unimpeded development of the spirit. It is an objective that can be individualistic or applicable to a group but its implementation remains informal and empirical. The agile development and the lean management are, nonetheless, relevant tools to accompany the development of the reference system or body of knowledge. This current line of thinking has a principal axiom: “the believer’s responsibility is to be fulfilled spiritually and materially”. This implies: “to free oneself from material constraints in order to promote spiritual fulfillment”. This is not an asceticism but a search for a simple wealth that respects a set of informal principles. Material constraints consist, for example, of precariousness, over-indebtedness, overconsumption, difficult access to a decent retirement or the powerlessness to constitute a transferable asset…
It is important to specify in what context animism is used here in a current of economic mind frame. Several oppositions can indeed emerge against a form of traditional religious practice that opposes the dogmas of the main monotheistic religions that influence the world. Nevertheless, it is not a matter of developing a business wisdom but an economic mind frame with its tools, methods and applications that respect the basic sensitivities of certain people.
The uniqueness of God is never called into question in the development of this line of thought. Polytheism differs from animism. It seems to many that polytheism is an involution of monotheism and that certain characters appear at a given moment in history to give a clear reminder of the original conception of the God as Creator, among others, his unicity, his omnipotence and his omniscience.
According to J. C. Froelich in his book “Animisms, the Pagan Religions of West Africa” published by Editions de l’Orante, polytheism differs from the Animism (recall it). The latter can often be seen as monotheism with polymorphic representation. Secondary Gods mediate between men and the great God. To worship God by recognizing the other gods gives rise to what is called “henotheism” by specialists in the field. The God, often the ancestor monitor is linked to the contemporary individual within a group by a long chain. The pantheons thus created are specific to each people including a creator God and often a civilizing hero, or monitor, deified ancestor of men. These secondary gods, forces of nature, invisible geniuses and other creatures, first occupants and master of the land where ancestors are subordinate to the creator.
God creates the soul of the world and the vital force that resides in each element. The lower gods follow as a faithful administration. The vital force is changed by the beings through mankind sacrifices and words. Present since the dawn of time, the vital force allows mankind by respect of the prescriptions to preserve and increase it within the community. The god creator is the first cause and a center emitting original force that feeds a circuit of energy which, starting from him, animates everything and comes back to him. Without being a magician or a sorcerer, we believe that the economy can also displace this force and make use of it. In order to empower people of animist traditions that are often in developing phase (if we can allow this cliché) to take an active part in the globalized economy, it is better in our idea to build the tools, methods and theories that are useful in bringing it to fruition. This is a major challenge for this people or a utopia depending on their belief.
To better understand JC Froelich who opened this presentation to this science in the absence of a contact, to this day, with a traditional and initiatory lineage, the word “animism” defined by the belief in the existence of an immaterial principle of a “soul” residing in beings and all things, visible and invisible. Whether it be for the religions of paganism of primordial cultures or a cosmic vision of the presence of an “elemental consciousness” in the smallest particles of matter, the harmony seems to remain between cultural traditions and living revelation of monotheism.
Going from this explanation in the deeper sense of animism in the usage that it is proposed to do, the economic world ceases to be what we were taught and other perspectives can be open to us without real initiative and in an informal fashion. This new line of thinking among many others can be done wrong or can be above others or stay in between two frontiers: economy and spirituality.
In the conception and learning received, we are expecting to know the laws of the market which guide the liberal world trade or not and, who, the states have a perpetual interaction to create the slightest material richness (GDP, Inc etc.) and to impose international smuggling and to affirm their sovereignty. The secular and refuge currencies such as gold and silver or barter in a local economy are no longer accessible for most peoples attached to their traditions and the passage through a stock exchange listing that is quasi mandatory. It is therefore with the currencies of each region that the methods of commerce for the potential actors interested in taking part. A contemporary adaptation that makes its way in the routine of life of an entire continent and its people sharing the same realities. The habit of adaptation.
The new attitude would be to no longer fear the idea of an economic affirmation and the challenges of advancing states, peoples and civilizations in place of an unrelenting expectation of external aid and to bathe in a resignation and to thus constitute a great inertia. Take charge of its development, its sovereignty and its affirmation; no doubt a matter of pride. United voices from the diaspora and the continent not only African but a continent at the edge of the third or even the fourth world can now contribute to building an alternative to economic currents implacable content that are imposed without the apprehension of its subtleties by the target people because of a lack of realism (of independence?) or by insufficient access to the education systems that are supposed to present these subjects. A gap often separates the leaders and the administrates, elites and popular layers, interests and impotence. It is a long-term adventure for which we must build an empirical science reinforced by the results of specialist work. The contribution of any connoisseur is welcome and examples of large-scale realization such as Wikipedia shows the power of internet interconnection and mutual control. What does it cost to try? Nothing but the comfort of having tried nothing to take away from our own initiatives future generations the heavy toll of the errors of history. Create a synergy between knowledge and a push towards unity. Could this be cleansing economic karma? What do I know? We have to learn from other cultures and to improve ourselves. The initiatives are not waiting on the course of our civilization but do we have the patience to seize them and carry them out?
Africa is home to simple practices that fuel the day-to-day life of informal commerce or traditional societies and life groups. Many peoples have their tradition in trade, agriculture, livestock farming or fishing associated with a subsoil and natural resources still exploitable in a fair way, sustainable and ecological that must be able to fuel a transition to a tertiary sector and thus be a competitive advantage among many of those potential of the Black continent. From Tripoli to Johannesburg via Luanda or Addis Ababa, the inventory and analysis of our domestic practices would be an excellent starting point to take advantage of a cultural wealth and adhere to the good economic thought to create wealth just by our joint efforts.
