If poverty is rampant, education is failing, crime is increasing, disease is befalling many, “mental illness” is on the rise, dollars are inflating, debts are being backed by further debts, the war machines are turning, prisons are overcrowding, and health care is death care, you have yourself a PERFECT system by the elites and for the elites. It is naive to think that this mess is unintended, that it has merely spiraled downward into this. Someone has always had to exist at the bottom in order for the few to make it to the top; you’re only upset about it now because it’s you who is being stepped upon/trampled. But that was the plan since the 1400s. Look who profits, and you will find the truth, the origins, and the orchestrators of our demise. People always talk about “how it used to be,” but it was never Utopia. Someone always had to suffer so that others could prosper; the grand plans have been laid, and now everyone who isn’t elite is going under while the remaining wealth is extracted from our tired little corpses. How can we sit by, watch “our” government kill masses of civilians abroad, and be foolish enough not to realize that we are next? We say “the government doesn’t care,” like the government is a real person. Look who is behind the government. When are we going to stop talking about revolution and be about it? When do we stand up and walk out on corporatism? When do we realize that the only power we have is ourselves, our collective will? When do we band together and refuse to live under this enslaving economic system? Truth be told, we’re all financially broke anyway. The more you make, the more you owe. When I made six figures, I lived check to check still. Now I earn zero, but my spirit isn’t “broke,” like it was before when I was sweating about the mortgage, the nanny, the car payments, the utilities, et. al.. When will many of us decide that we are tired of being spiritually “broke” and tired? When do we come together and create our own system of collective economics based upon the skills we have? I will teach for free. I don’t need fancy boards and gadgets; those are illusions and gimmicks. Give me some paper, books, and pencils, and I can teach far beyond anyone’s test. When do we stop worrying about money and begin to simply be ourselves and share with each other? Let us do this now. Why not? What do we have left? We can keep asking the government for our dignity and will to exist, or we can take hold of it ourselves NOW.


 

Gaddafi advocated for Africa’s control of its own resources. He spearheaded the African Union and even paid the dues of poorer nations, contributing over $40million/yr. He bolstered the Union to form the African Monetary Fund, African Central Bank, and the African Investment Bank so that Africa could be self-sufficient and less reliant upon the World Bank and the IMF. He invested heavily in sub-Saharan Africa to build independent telecomm networks to reduce reliance on US & Euro companies. This is very dangerous to super powers and corporate leaders, incl. China, which all seek to continue the carving up & division of Africa. We need to understand that this coup has cultural significance, too, b/c the first accusation of the imperial powers against black people is that we are incapable of managing our own affairs. Gaddafi is modern proof that Africans are not inferior, that we can lead ourselves without being corrupt. Do you realize the force of Africa’s people throughout the diaspora? The greater danger to the survival of Eurocentric ideals is our empowerment, for if we all knew who we ARE and the greatness from which we came, we would be FIERCE.
