The I stated:
"ALL I'M SAYING RASTAFARI IN THE ISLANDS ROSE MIGHTY WITH THE CORONATION SO I WILL HOLD TO MY 20TH CENTURY UNDERSTANDING OF RASTAFARI,..."
Rastafari is without end...Rastafari is the same yesterday, today, tomorrow, and Ivermore. So your overstanding of Rastafari should not change regardless of the century, unless you are talking about dogmas, beliefs, and rituals. The essence of Rastafari is based on a foundation of righteousness, love, balance, justice. InI hold Haile Selassie as the fleshly symbol of these things but these Icepts were here before Haile Selassie took the flesh of Ras Tafari Makennon.
I overstand when you say that you uphold the 20th century view of Rastafari....but IMHO, you cant limit the power of Rastafari.
