Trump a Demagogue but Life Doesn’t Mind

Life is not Suicidal

Trump, Kim Jong Un and the threat of Nuclear War

Being true to his nature, Trump selfishly forged ahead and met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on talks to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. “It was a meeting of great substance that only I could have achieved”, he boldly proclaimed to the world. His haters and political opponents quickly flew into a frenzy to point out that Trump is a hypocrite for making friends with a dictator while he goes about alienating America’s historical allies. Trump couldn’t care less about what people think because he is a demagogue but Life doesn’t mind at all.

Life is a single conscious entity. It’s #1 prerogative is to survive and thrive at all costs. Its #2 prerogative is to achieve universal awareness. In order to achieve universal awareness Life uses mechanisms to drive the consciousnesses of its creations. The key mechanism in humans is Desire. We desire happiness, fame and fortune, power and influence, and most of all, to live forever. Once you understand the mechanisms of Life you can manipulate humanity. Fortunately, most people including Trump and Kim Jong do not.     

Both Trump and Kim Jong Un’s #1 Desire is great power. Unfortunately, their powers are limited and dependent on the size of the political and economic structures under their control. Once they reach the limits of their power they will default into Survival mode, which is also a mechanism of Life. Once in survival mode they will compromise their power in order to survive.

The essence of Trump’s power is America’s vast economic and military might, which is the largest in the world. It got to that state largely due to Globalization, which is an economic system in which the government used trade to build the wealth of American businesses worldwide. Other countries are induced into opening their economies to cheap labor for high profit. Countries that resist see their governments overthrown through covert measures and military intimidation or direct intervention when things get out of hand.

The essence of Kim Jong Un’s power is the psychological indoctrination of his people into believing that he is a living god. It is a mental condition that has existed within North Korea for several generations. The tactics of such brainwashing include; limiting outside access while controling the education and media. Over time the population became brainwashed into believing that the Kim family has supernatural powers. In such a mental state people individually and collectively work to carry out the will of their leader for fear of retribution.

God-complex a is a mental disorder that many leaders throughout history have died defending. However, leaders who are not completely suicidal recognize the limits of their powers and will work to enhance it by employing the full human resource of their country. It is well known that North Korea is so economically deprived that people face starvation on a daily basis however, North Korea has managed to build one of the largest militaries in the world, all in defense of Kim Jong Un’s legacy.

Even with all that power at his disposal, Kim Jong Un still knows that he is not powerful enough to display enough god-like power to scare his enemies therefore he has defaulted to survival mode. Trump, on the other hand is growing more and more powerful every day. So much so that many believe that he is becoming a threat to the political stability of the planet.  Life takes risks by allowing humans to fulfill their deepest Desires but Life will always defaults to survival mode under threats of total annihilation.

How will Life correct a demagogue like Trump? The only balance to Desire is Conscience. If Life cannot reach his conscience to force him to recognize his unethical ways it will raise the conscience of people around him to act to stop him. It could be a limiting of his powers through the upcoming mid-term elections or impeachment if enough of his fellow Republicans do a 180 in their partisan support.

Jamaicans Losing Their Religion

Jamaicans are slowly losing their religion. It is a social condition that has been happening for years and one that has recently become more evident when popular entertainer, Mr. Vegas, challenged the controversial statements of a well-known pastor on social media and in church. Mr. Vegas’s surprising loss of faith in the church is a recent phenomenon as the popular Dancehall artiste has always been very outspoken about his Christian beliefs in public and in his music.

Mr. Vegas is a smart man who has been reading the bible for years and while he has discovered many passages in it that are contradictory, he has never questioned his Faith before. However, one passage that always bothered his conscience is one that says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”. This passage is explained as; people are dying because they don’t or refuse to truly know god.

When a rational thinking person reads this passage and he or she observes the level of corruption in society and in the church he or she will naturally conclude that most people don’t know god. And even those that have unshakable Faith in god are dying in great numbers at the hands of merciless criminals. The rational thinking person will then either challenge the church and society using his own understanding of god or he will seek an alternative belief system because the one that society is using to understand god is not working.

Mr. Vegas has chosen to seek an alternative belief system in Kemetic Spirituality as well as to challenge religion. The question that he has to face now is how he will determine truth from Illusion because real Knowledge is based on Truth. He already knows that only real knowledge can help Black people end our cycle of destruction. The best way determine truth from illusion is through questioning. However, on one hand illusionists believe that to question is to lack faith in what they believe to be true. Therefore, they will redefine questioning to mean (seeking clarity) instead of to actually seeking truth. What then is (seeking clarity) if not to enforce that which you already believe.

All Jamaicans who are experiencing a loss of faith in Christianity and are seeking an alternative belief system need to be careful of settling for other religions or Atheism before you truly understand yourself psychologically. Imagine, 3000 years ago philosophers knew that DESIRE was the key problem in human nature but pastors and 99% of people today do not understand DESIRE. Know that the only balance for Desire is Conscience. That is how all religions were born. Religions are systems of Desire management where an overseer (god) is put in place to help people control their Desires.

People today are actively destroying the tenants of Conscience which are; Fairness, Equity, and Accountability, by using Human Rights laws as a means of quenching their various Desires. Pastors are creating conflict in society because they don’t understand desire so they condemn people without helping them to strengthen their Consciences in a productive way. Conflict will always produce conflict. If pastors were truly conscious they would invite and train people to manage their dysfunctions by strengthening the power of their Minds by strengthening their consciences.

When Jamaicans begin to learn how our Mind works we will also begin to understand the validity of religion and how to move beyond it without destroying ourselves in the process. We will learn that religion can only get us to the bank of a great river where joy and prosperity can be seen at the other side. Those of us who do not understand Life will drown as we try to swim across.  The Mind is the bridge. Learn to understand it, enrich it with knowledge, and we will reconnect to the Spiritual energies of the universe. Our collective unity will then form the bridge to achieve racial respect and prosperity.

Kanye West, Slavery Was Not A Conscious Choice

Slavery was a Choice

This is a message to Kanye West and the growing number of mentally deranged Black people who believe that slavery was always a choice. You all lack perspective and to experience the psychologically crippling trauma that our ancestors had to endure before you can talk about choice.

Recently in an interview, popular rapper Kanye West, stated his belief that slavery was a choice. This outrageous statement is only the latest in a series of questionable moves on his part. Many people who heard his comment on TMZ might say that Kanye’s statement is being taken out of context.

So, to be fair, he did indicate that the time period (400 years) was “in his opinion” what made slavery a choice. This still doesn’t let him off the hook. In fact he needs some basic education in Black American history and psychology.

I argue that slavery was not a conscious choice from the perspective that Life’s base instinct is to survive. Choice is a subjective thing. It is not always yes or no, black or white, life or death. Human choice is based on perspective and ranges from instinct to rational thought. Rational thought depends on precedence and hindsight. If none of the two is available then instinct takes over. Instinct is based on Life and Life will always choose to survive.

The first slaves knew that they were destined for hardship simply because slavery was not a new thing. Tribes warred against each other all the time and those who weren’t killed were made slaves by other tribes. This is precedence however, trans-Atlantic slaves had very little knowledge of the hardships that North America would bring.

Once in North America slaves freed themselves over time as they gained knowledge and perspective of their surroundings. Of course, there was the ultimate choice of death but the instinct of life is to live to fight another day. It exists outside of choice just like any other mechanism of Life. 

This instinct is called the “Fight or Flight” response and if it didn’t exist many of us wouldn’t be using the benefit of hindsight to say such things as; “I would have escaped or I would have chosen to die” because you wouldn’t exist. 

Instinct is being used to prolong the duration of physical and mental slavery in North America, the West Indies, and South America. This condition is maintained by several tactics which include; lack of knowledge, fear of consequence, religious indoctrination, and dis-unity. 

It is well documented that during slavery, Black people were forbidden from reading, writing, and education. Slave masters knew that knowledge in any form develops the mind. Therefore, any form of learning was as dangerous as being alone with a slave with a knife in his hand. For that reason, they kept their slaves uneducated and dumb.

The stability of the plantation was at risk of falling into dysfunction if slaves begun to develop rational thought. Slaves were also kept from knowing anything about life outside the plantation, which maintained a psychological condition of uncertainty as to how unsecure they actually were.

Fear of consequence is one of the most crippling psychological conditions. It was a tactic used all throughout slavery and is still being used against us in present day in the way cops publicly execute Black people on a daily basis. Fear of consequence is the process of inducing fear into people by showing them examples of what will happen if they act out of line or disobey the rules.

Slave masters used numerous measures of cruelty to control their slaves. Slaves were gathered to watch as runaways and disobedient slaves were either wipped senseless, lynched, castrated, or dismembered. Pregnant women had their stomachs cut open and their unborn babies were crushed.

Family members and even children were sold away to other slave owners and women were raped and impregnated on a regular basis. Where in today’s society does such brutality exist to test our so called “choice”? Hindsight has black people f’ed up because not even the Jews are dumb enough to say they knew that not fighting back would result in them being gassed.   

Religion was used as a tool to pacify slaves. It was a form of education that slave masters had no fear of sharing because it teaches that a master and slave relationship is an acceptable thing in the eyes of God. Slaves were encouraged to accept their suffering, as it was the will of God as punishment for non-belief.

The quest of a slave therefore, was to develop deep faith in God as God would forgive and reward their suffering once they die and go to heaven. Credit religion for helping Black people to endure 400 years of trauma but it’s time to dismiss this tool of slavery.

Black religious people today are still mentally enslaved because they still cannot see that religion is merely a tool to understand human nature. Choice will exist when a more powerful comforter is provided for Black people to depend on. Dohgon Spirituality aims to be that alternative.

Kanye West, understand that there were numerous slave revolts throughout the time of slavery. Nat Turner and Harriet Tubman are just a couple of examples. In the Caribbean and South America there was the Garifuna, the Maroons, and many others, some of whom never made it to the slave auction docks. Instead, they killed the sailors and took control of the slave ships.

Toussaint Louverture in Haiti defeated the French to gain freedom almost 100 years before American slaves gained their freedom. Come on man! Wise up and stop the self-righteous foolishness that conservative ideology is twisting your mind toward.

I see you and many others like yourself who they have recruited to whitewash history by telling us that we have choice while they continue to heard us by Instinct and Desire. Black Consciousness won’t let it happen because there are other ways to achieve prosperity without selling one’s Soul.     

I Feel Like A Black Republican, Kanye West vs Jay-Z

Kanye West vs Jay-Z

I feel like a Black Republican but I can’t turn my back on the hood, I got love for them. Jay-Z

Conservatism is a vile term among many Black people simply because it is often associated with white supremacy and economic oppression. The fact is, many Black people think and act conservative, we just don’t practice it politically due to our racial bonds. Kanye West and Jay-Z are two Black conservatives with politically different views. One openly praises political conservatism and one fights against it.

Conservatism in America is often associated with racists. Take a pick from any of the known white supremacist organizations in the country and you will find they identify themselves as Christian conservatives. Religious conservatism is the belief that your religion is the chosen of God therefore your actions are guided and accepted by God. That goes for all religions, as is evident with the rise of Islamic extremism throughout the world.

White supremacists believe that Christianity is the guide for all aspects of life, be it political, financial, social, or environmental, therefore they go about destroying the environment because “God put resources on Earth for them to use”. They actively seek to convert Black people to their religious ideology; not to improve the lives of Black people but to individually covet favor from their God in hopes that they will join him in Heaven.

The problem is that once a Black person is converted to religious conservatism his status does not change. He may feel that he has gained the world but he is still considered a servant to the white race. Any injustice that is inflicted on a Black person by a white person in this condition is seen as the norm of a master and slave relationship. The only alternative for religious Blacks (who have a conscience) is to get political, as in the case of Martin Luther King.

Any culture that is built on the exploitation of Black people under the excuse of religious superiority will ultimately become unjust and oppressive. Oppression is the exercise of authority or power in a burdensome, cruel, or unjust manner. Many white people will argue that they “don’t have a racist bone in their body” but they do nothing to fix the systems of oppression. They will see Black people getting gunned down by the police on a daily basis and they will do nothing.

They will see Black people being denied service at businesses and they will do nothing. They will see Black people being railroaded into prisons by the corrupt court system and they will do nothing. Their psychological condition is the result of a moral superiority complex created by religion. For that reason, Black people are scared to associate themselves with what most white people associate themselves with, which is political conservatism.

Contrary to popular belief, Black people are not an unethical race. We are hardworking, fun loving people who believe in getting good education and maintaining strong family ties. We have high ambitions of becoming Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, and Business owners. All these things require supreme self-discipline, hard work, and financial sacrifice to achieve. Those of us who make it to the top of society fall into two categories.

The first one (Kanye West) attributes his achievements to his own hard work and sacrifices so he abandons his past. He begins to think like the white man politically, fiscally, and religiously. He dumps his Black girl and picks up a white girl that everyone in sports and Hollywood has slept with simply because of his own deranged ego. Then he starts to praise the most race baiting president in history as his hero.

The second one (Jay Z) acknowledges that although he worked hard to achieve success he must pay homage to those who helped to break down many of the barriers that white supremacists put in our paths to limit our success. He maintains a fiscal and religious conservative view but he refuses to break his racial bonds, therefore he shuns the national political conservative system that enforces the oppression of Black people.

Jay-Z works behind the scenes to improve the lives of Black Americans because he knows that no matter how rich and successful he gets, he’s “Still Nigga”.

Brother Polight, SaRa Sutin Seti, and Young Pharaoh’s Dilemma

Brother Polight, SaRa Sutin Seti, and Young Pharaoh’s Dilemma.

There are a number of individuals within the Black community who have gained popularity primarily for their efforts to wake the community up from under the spell of religion and the degenerating effects of popular culture. Some people refer to them as Ghetto Scholars while others view them as self-promoting opportunists.

Whatever the real story is we must understand that these individuals are serving a purpose. The main purpose that Ghetto Scholars serve is to provide an alternative view of Black history, culture, and Spirituality so that Black people may become inspired to embark on their own journey of personal discovery.

Some Black people who are looking for Revolutionaries to follow blindly or are too lazy to engage in self-improvement, will not see the benefit of Ghetto Scholars but they will also benefit from the process as they attempt to rebuff them and seek alternatives.

A Ghetto Scholar is an individual who is highly motivated to obtain knowledge about Black history and culture that has been purposely omitted from public record. They then use that knowledge to rebuff the false narrative and stereotypes that stigmatize and cripple the development of Conscious Black Minds.

Knowledge that most Ghetto Scholars possess is not recognized through the certificate programs of established Universities therefore, their knowledge can only be weighed by the effect it produces within the community.    

Important to understand is that although the term Ghetto Scholar is being applied to defenders of various religions like Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, that is not true Ghetto Scholarship as religion is recognized by the Black Conscious community as a tool of indoctrination, not mental freedom.

True Ghetto Scholarship is afforded to people who seek to raise the level of Black Consciousness in a non-religious, non-colonial way. Individuals who have also become indoctrinated by political ideologies such as conservatism and socialism are also considered unconscious as they will tend to defend the wrongs of their peers by suppressing their own conscience.  

Through the years, Ghetto Scholars have attempted to reach the masses in numerous ways. However, thanks to Social media in the new millennium their message is finally reaching a wider audience. Among the Ghetto Scholars who have excelled in the Social Media age are Polight, SaRa Suten Seti, Young Pharaoh, Akh and the Dagger Squad, Shakka Ahmose, Mfundishi, Red and Blue Pill, and many others.

Most Ghetto Scholars were also assisted by popular videographer and entrepreneur SaNeter of SaNeter TV. He has been instrumental in this new era of the Black Conscious movement by acting as a mediator between the various factions as well as documenting the New York Black Consciousness scene from the streets to the events and debates.  

Ghetto Scholars are not born with knowledge; they acquire their knowledge through a process of using common sense and intelligence to build a framework of information that is beneficial to Black Consciousness. The process is often a difficult one as non-institutional knowledge is often acquired through (life experience) or living and learning.

It is a process of creating (social bonds) that are not easily broken. For instance; Polight started out as a homeless youth on the New York streets before becoming a feared Crip gang member. His consciousness was steered through associating with Islamic organizations before embarking on his own business and educational endeavors.

SaRa Sutin Seti comes from a family with deep Islamic ties within his Detroit community. His consciousness was steered in a Kemitic direction through a desire to learn all he can about Afrakan history through several Kemitic master teachers, particularly Dr Ben-Jochannan.

Young Pharaoh is a self-professed former gang member from the streets of Buffalo NY. He has little formal education but a keen learning ability to enables him to comprehend information that most find complex. It was while serving time in jail awaiting trial on several Drug and Gun charges that he begun to take his unique learning ability seriously.

In each case, the process of psychological development involved (bonding) with individuals and ideologies that are very difficult to abandon due to the personal oaths of loyalty people often make in order to (fit in) with others. If you are born into a family that is deeply religious then you will become indoctrinated by that religion.

If you get initiated into a gang there is an expectation of deep loyalty that can only be broken by death depending on the reputation of that gang. There is no two ways about it. Human nature is all about the (bonds) we create for comfort and acceptance. Each person’s ability to transcend those bonds also speaks of their mental strength or Consciousness.

In recent month, the Black Conscious movement has been experiencing a lot of turmoil. Prominent figures such as Polight, Sara Sutin Seti, and Young Pharaoh have distanced themselves from being labelled members of any so-called unified Black Consciousness community.

Polight has embarked on a worldwide endeavor to find “Spiritual Truth”, as he says but we know that he won’t find it because no one knows the Spirit like Professor MOmOh of the Dohgon. He knows that the Key to Spiritual understanding lies within the human Brain and Mind. All religions and spiritual practices attempt to take people’s focus away from their personal wants and needs and direct them toward a divine or outer force.

SaRa Sutin Seti and Young Pharaoh have taken on the Nation of Islam in a war of words that has escalated into threats and accusations of harassment. Many people are saying the dispute may not end well for the two prominent Ghetto Scholars as the NOI is a very powerful organization.

The power of the NOI lies in their organizing ability that was developed through the self-discipline of Islam. If people only knew the Brain and Mind like the Dohgon they would know that Religion is all about self-discipline and there is no religion more self-disciplined than Islam. The result is that when they put their efforts into a task, they have the willpower to see it through.

Be wise and don’t let your egos get you in trouble brothers because the Spiritual Essence of the Universe is actively working on the Conscience of the religious; slowly chipping away at their corrupt ideologies 24/7.  

Self discipline is active process of controlling and suppressing one’s (Desire) but replacing one desire with another is useless. Know that until we learn to control our egotistical desires for Sex, Money, Power, and Influence, we will remain broken individuals, never able to address our real Desires for Racial and Cultural liberty.

Furthermore, Black Consciousness, whether unified or not, will always exist as long as there are examples to follow or not to follow and as long as Black people continue to become indoctrinated into religious and ideological mind traps that serve to maintain our subservient social condition.  

Black Panther Serves To Inspire In A World Built On Fantasy

Black Panther Fantasy

I hold my clenched fists across my heaved chest and as I summon the power of a thousand Afrakan warriors my arms become heavy like the hammer of the mighty Thor times two. I am ready to pound the hell out of every white racist and race destroying Black person that crosses my path. I know it’s just a fantasy but I feel exhilarated, inspired, and powerful. Now I’m ready to take on the world.

Every dream begins as fantasy, an exaggeration of the actual outcome. There is no explanation for it. That’s just the way the human mind works. But if you think that it’s foolish to dwell on fantasy, who can tell me that god is not a fantasy? Yet he/she/it is the key drivers of the human psyche, providing hope, inspiration, and courage to billions to alleviate their fears of a hostile world. God has been insufficient however therefore; Black people still continue to search for any form of inspiration we can find.

That is why when a movie like Black Panther comes along to offer inspiration in the form of a fantasy, Black people have responded with overwhelming support. In fact, I have never seen Black people all across the globe get so excited about a movie before. Like Trekkies or Star Wars fanatics who get dressed up in fan gear to attend a showing, Black Panther supporters came out in all sorts of Afrakan themed attire. The result is that the movie has now broken sales records in numerous countries and is predicted to become one of the top grossing movies of all time.

In the months prior to its premiere, anticipation for Black Panther never wavered, it grew bigger by the day, which was a good sign for its creators, Marvel and Disney, that they had a hit on their hands. Personally, after witnessing the blind obsession on social media over what I saw as no more than a fantasy, I wrote it off. My consciousness does not allow me to get swept up in consumerism, which is a factor in all movie and product debuts.

So here we are, a week after the premiere and Black Panther has actually lived up to the hype but even it wasn’t a good movie in terms of its entertainment value, just the representation of Afrakans in positive positions of power was good enough for most Black folks. A new term has even been coined called “Afro Futurism” to classify movies in which Black people are set in leading positions of power.

On the other hand, Black Panther has got every major news organization scrambling to understand its success. They are wondering how Black Panther, a lesser known figure in the Marvel Universe is able to outsell all other movies with major characters such as Iron Man, X-Men, Thor, Spider Man, Captain America, and Avengers. Its success came because Black people were given a chance to Direct, Act, and create a story about us for us. The result is a product that inspires greatness within us. 

Main-stream media is hearing from us how just seeing other Black people in positions of power is inspirational yet many of them are still confused. They say, “but it’s just a movie, a fantasy”. What they refuse to acknowledge is the power of inspirational figures even though they draw inspiration from statues and portraits of Jesus and movies about Super-man, James Bond, and Luke Sky-Walker.

Those inspirations make them feel that they can dictate the policies of the world, travel to the Stars, or become super sleuths that solve complected crimes. For us, Black Panther serves to inspire in a world built on fantasy. What world am I referring to? I’m not referring to the world of Wakanda; I’ am referring to the world we face every time we open our front doors.
