In Response To: crime and cops: response to Ras Marcus (gman)
How are you doing beloved, it is nice hearing from you, and your post is full of wisdom and reality too. As we take a very serious look at the ways of humanity, it is clear that the world in which we are living, is becoming more modern and more brutish at the same time. There are more prisons upon the face of this earth today, than when my grand parents were children, and certainly more, than when I were a child. Tax payers money is being spent on technological advancement, but it seems to cause more people to be home less, more people to be hungry, and more people to be in human bondage.
This continued advancement in technological advancement, has created first class, second class, third class, and maybe many other classes of people, in every country upon the face of this earth, where we are living today. People are not classified by their good attitudes towards their sisters and brothers, but are classified, by the amount of wealth which they have, whether it was honestly gained, or whether it was stolen from the masses of the people. People are also classified, by their fashionable appearances, as well as their educational degrees, instead of people being recognized, for their self determination in serving their people and preserving community life and unity.
You are extremely right about the different value systems among different people, and how a minority group in a community, who were elected as politicians, can sit in a room among themselves, and make laws, which will please those of their friends, who pay the cost, for their political activities, without having any regards, as to how it will affect the masses of the people, who are the very ones who voted them into political office. They really do not have any regards, as to whether the laws they make, hurt the masses of the people, or cause them hardships, they are making laws to satisfy those, who pay for their political activities, which help them to be in office, that is really where it reaches today, and it can be clearly seen.
I agree that we should live lovingly, and care for each other, and try to get along, but when the leaders of any Country, Village or County, cause shortages of the basic necessities, because of greed and bad management, of the people's resources, then what you will have, is far more people, than the needed food and services, which are needed to make people happy, and fulfill their needs, and as a result, there are gross competition, since no body want to tell their family, that there is nothing to eat, that they are now without shelter etc, and so fights are encouraged, in order to try to achieve, the basic necessities of life, and so people get hurt, and that becomes a crime, and the police comes along, and some body goes to jail, and the seed of revenge is then planted and nourished, and so that helps to keep the jail houses full to capacity, and so from time to time, they continue to build more jail houses, and from the way it seems, there will be really no end to this industry.
So we end up having a vast amount of motherless and fatherless children, who have to survive on their own, and as a result, the cycle of the prison industry continues, because these fatherless and motherles children, are classified and placed in the criminal class, and since they are so many of them, the only social actions which politicians, think that they can take, is to build some prisons for them, instead of some schools and skills training centers, which would help to make these lovely children, future leaders and teachers, in our countires, and help to make this earth a much more peaceful and better place to live. So the shackles continue, to be placed on humanity, as we bear witness, of modern slave trading practices world wide.
Again I send many oceans of blessing and selp determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
