The Republic of Angola is a state located in southwestern Africa. To the west it is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south it borders with Namibia, to the north with the Democratic Republic of Congo and to the east with Zambia. The predominant language of the population is Portuguese, used by 71% of the total population. Therefore, Angola is the second country in the world after Brazil, where the official language is Portuguese. This is due to the fact that Angola has long been a colony of Portugal. The colonial period begins in 1483, with the arrival of the Portuguese under the command of Diogo Cau. And only in 1974, after the war of independence, Angola received the status of an independent republic.

When trying to analyze the evils of the African continent, it is essential not to forget to address the ideologies on which Africa is aligned in an attempt to emerge on the geopolitical chessboard.
Africa is a great civilization center with an immense history. A history that has been voluntarily obliterated over the centuries, by those who knew that knowledge of one's historical heritage implies the ability to master geopolitics in the present, projected towards the future. This article will be devoted to the deepening of the great civilization empires that have emerged over the centuries in Africa.
Until a few years ago, Africa was at a standstill. After the first wave of decolonization in the 1960s, the new African regimes experimented with all the political ideologies of the so-called "modern" era. This process has led to the emergence of liberal, nationalist, communist or socialist societies in postcolonial countries.
