06: Criminal mentality of blacks against whites a.o. in Lambarene in Gabun 1924-1927
Albert Schweitzer=one of the first "medical doctors without borders" This is how Albert Schweitzer's black patients were from 1924 onwards: Abusing - dirtying - cultivating fake fantasies - poisoning - running away without payment - pawning women - not helping strangers - destroying things - brutally torturing and killing animals - lying + stealing - black people cheat white timber dealers with tricks with the wood - the worst defamations against a medical doctor - the criminal Bendjabis from the interior: refusing to help - they do not accept house rules - refusing mosquito nets and blankets - they "lose" instruments and exchange them for tobacco - no memory - making a fire under the bed - stealing food from other patients (theft of food) - but: fetching coconuts from palm trees - making a fire with lumber - not wanting to wash out bandages - throwing bandages away - stealing chickens from Albert Schweitzer when the doctors are operating - the hospital staff is nervous - defamation by black relatives - kidnapping of patients

August 2020: Albert Schweitzer is analyzed - highly interesting mistakes and pioneering achievements in the hospital in Lambarene on the Ogowe River
During the 10 days of quarantine after my return from Peru to Switzerland (July 23, 2020) I had something to read, collected works by Albert Schweitzer. I wanted to find out how he healed - puu, you have to read a lot, because there is no such summary of his healings. So I wrote down everything and then found out what was good and what was not so good (for people who want to learn something about Africa, the works of Albert Schweitzer are valuable introductory reading) - so the propaganda hides all the negative points, e.g. the film "my life is my argument" - Link chapter 2

If you look at the general living conditions in Africa (Link08), you can immediately see that things are different in Africa - there is a lot of inefficiency, and you have to pay much more attention to your life - you may even be self-sufficient in order to survive...

Albert Schweitzer has to play the carpenter
The main shortcoming: Albert Schweitzer forgot to take two carpenters with him from Strasbourg, and so Albert Schweitzer had to play the carpenter and was always dependent on unreliable, inefficient blacks and could not heal and research as he had thought, that was the first phase of his first hospital from 1913-1917 - Link chapter 3. In addition, Albert Schweitzer was not linguistically prepared, could not speak African languages ​​and was always dependent on translators. So stupid but ouch! As of August 1914, as a German in a French colony, he was a prisoner of war and couldn't organize anything big anyway. He was a prisoner of war in 1917 and returned to Strasbourg in 1919.

Concentration camp conditions with Albert Schweitzer
From 1923 to 1927 was the second phase of the hospital - Link. The hospital was now overcrowded and the huts were without windows and only with damp soil, then it kept raining through the canopy of leaves and the black patients sometimes got pneumonia and died from it - the blacks from inner Gabon (Bendjabis) had been coming since the end of the war 1919 to the Ogowe River to get involved in the timber trade and turned out to be notoriously criminal when they were patients in hospital, simply because they had their families far away inland and felt "free". Then there came dysentery and famine at the same time, and this was how concentration camp conditions arose in the hospital. Albert Schweitzer did not have the authority to place the dysentery patients in a ward 1km away to save his hospital from the dysentery. Sheer horror came up. There were more deaths than graves, corpses weren't burned but buried, children from the mission's school had to dig graves, etc. He didn't call for help in Strasbourg!

Criminality of the blacks
Since Albert Schweitzer had conditions in a concentration camp, a completely overcrowded hospital with dysentery diarrhea patients, many blacks probably had no desire to behave "well" and were in some cases hyper criminal against Albert Schweitzer with lies, stealing, simulating, defaming, abusing the hospital as a death hospital, running away the night after the operation without payment (bananas, 1 goat), or when the hospital staff was busy with an operation, black relatives of patients stole Albert Schweitzer's chickens for their dinner, etc. So this criminality of the blacks against Albert Schweitzer fills an entire website - link06.

Healings and pioneering achievements by Albert Schweitzer and his doctors
Albert Schweitzer's healings also fill their own website - link05. Albert Schweitzer was a pioneer
-- with the prevention of amputations in the event of severe injuries or fractures: with moist bandages with methyl violet
-- with skin transplants for faster healing of open zones where there previously an ulcer had been (phagodanic ulcers)
-- then from 1926 the phagedean ulcers were removed with a homeopathic dilution with mercury oxycyanur, or with copper sulphate, or with Breosan ointment, so that general anesthesia was no longer necessary
-- and in 1926 a doctor Mr. Trensz discovered
in Lambarene under the microscope that many dysentery patients had no dysentery at all, but cholera - which heals with white clay water.

Another pioneering achievement by Albert Schweitzer is his cultural philosophy with ideals + ethics + progress, with the reverence for life (Link09) - he even taught black people how to protect animals ...

Syringe master - guinea pigs for the Rockefeller Foundation - the cowardly church did not support Albert Schweitzer!
In general, Albert Schweitzer was a pharmaceutical syringe master and not a fan of natural medicine. The jungle was right next door and he did NOT develop any new remedies with the jungle plants which could have replaced expensive pharma pills or injections (!). No homeopathy, no noni, no sodium bicarbonate! And Albert Schweitzer had his hospital used for Big Pharma: The Rockefell Foundation gave him e.g. new drugs against sleeping sickness to be "tested" on black people - guinea pigs - but the new drugs now also defeated advanced sleeping sickness (one case went blind). And there were loads of elephantiasis and hernia operations. This was master work.

And the Jesus Fantasy Church did NOT support Albert Schweitzer, he had to collect all the money himself or "play together" through organ concerts, lectures and from his friends - because Albert Schweitzer "did not have the right faith". The conditions of a concentration camp in the hospital were consequently provoked by the refusal of help by France and the Church. Well, it should be better with Mother Earth. And next time, please take two carpenters from Europe with you and try the baking soda cures for tropical diseases too - Link!

Questions to the African governments
-- why the African governments don't install protection moles to their harbors?
-- why the African governments don't install tracks for passing ships along the rivers during low water levels?
-- why the African governments like Gabon permit Norwegian walers to hunt wales in Gabon sea when the own population is suffering famine?
-- why the African governments don't install their own school systems but let work the fantasy God prayers of Rome to install a school system which only provokes fake proud and new alcoholism with the parents who are loosing their children to the diabolic Satanist Church?
