In Response To: Rastafari People Think That Everything Is In Zion (ras marcus)
It's a lot of factors; bad upbringing is a word that could encapsulate all these factors. Ones who are of FarI should look at the life of HIM's
upbringing and how works and education were ordered in His life. Rastas caught up in religion can't see the fullness as HIM's werks as a government administrator to African people. It is unfurtunate to say that for so many reasons ones can't see or is overwhelmed by the vision and its
fullfillment. So we ritire from the frotline of tribulation; with confrontaions, discriminations and gun shots; cacooned in material comforts and conveniences. Sucked into the Western mindset matrix being grounded and proceessed like minced meat with no focus. Focus is the key; and the point of focus is Africa and being African. This has to be in a culturally defined socioeconomic sense. It is easier said than done, but practice, practice, practice. We have to learn the dance, in order to dance the DANCE. A lot of InI bring selfish colonial piratism to the table because the bandooloo skank is the only way we know how to deal.
Those who say tear dowm and liberate are indeed well meant in their chant; but with what do we replace the downstroyed? If the answer is a blank, it means one has'nt done one's homework and is illprepared for the task at hand. To make a long story short, it goes like this; if one is lowly skilled; get some education and upgrade your skills; this will reflect eventually in a higher income. This holds both for the individual and the collective. The next thing is to take an inventory of the available resources, meaning: air, land, water, computer,professional skills etcetera and identify what can be packaged and manufactured with and from the available resources. I know, it is always easier said than done. We need to Ivar the culture-history, management,process,organization,psychology, specialists, devision of labor,sales and advertising, bankers, financial experts and money makers. Yes money makers; we can make money among ourselves virtually out of thin air. This is dependent on how we organise InIselves; honesty raspect, morals, discipline, ethics, decorum and etiquete must be of the highest standard. Work both physical and mental is the key to success on the material plain. Membah dis: Yuh learn to dance at home, before yuh go abroad.
Peace and Love innah RastafarI
