In Response To: what we can do (seshatasefekht)
'eja, the nine areas of people activity in the known universe is locked down by 'white' supremacy / racism :
economics education entertainment labor law politics religion sex war
at this stage, competing for these areas of activity withe in 'white'ness would be an exercise in futility.'
You are right, but please think of how we came to define the objects in these areas, who was it who first described for us what sex or religion is? It is strange but we seem to have now accepted the 'white' definition of 'people activity in the known universe' (even when we oppose it's effects on us). And, because we accept it, we operate under the conditions they have set up, we co-operate how they say we should co-operate and we fight how they say fighting is done.
But, if we actually proceed from a foundation where we do not buy into thier definition of what is real, then I think you would find that the topography of the battlefield is not as it seems.
There are institutions (in concrete and in minds) that were set up to protect and propagate the myths of these 'areas of people activity in the known universe'. We have been taught to believe that things have always been as they are, more or less. So why fight, just accept your condition and hope that change will come one day. Yet, those of us who have knowledge of a different description of reality know that what is actually required for this change is for us to drop one way of life and embrace another. Suscribe to different definitions of 'economics education entertainment labor law politics religion sex war'.
This is where the desemination of the truth will play a vital role. People need to know that there is another way. It does not involve the carrying of guns or bombs. "The man who ate a bullet was in an uneccesary rush, Death never told anyone 'I've got no time for you' ".
What we are talking about is a change in consciousness, not merely a change in 'government' or the illusionary domination of 'areas of people activity in the known universe'. This is what we should be dealing with, and, the unity you are talking about should be built around this re-definition of civilization.
We need to start viewing this disease called 'whiteness' as what it truly is : an obstacle to be overcome just as our ancestors overcame other natural obstacles in thier quest to create civilization. We MUST talk to people about the disease and we MUST talk about the cure.
Wisdom and Strength.
