In Response To: special requests are not law (seshatasefekht)
seshatasefekht, there are two sentences which you stated that i would like to examine.
seshata when you state: "i can not resist my own programming (because there's so much sindrome, placebo syndromes created by those three blind mice. arrogance, ignorance and stubbornness. have you ever seen such a sight in your life)"
since we can not resist our own programming, by quoting from someone else are'nt we just stating and re-inforcing the speaker/writers own programming? who may or may not be just as confused/distant from the truth as you or I?
also seshata when you state: "no one gets hurt by my meager expression."
is that really true? many look for insight on rastafari speaks. yet if we are just "quoting" another's programming are we possibly leading them further down a confused path? can we ever claim to FULLY overstand what the author meant with out knowing his or her mental condition and experiences?
lastly seshata when you state: "a request is not law. people in the south use to sometimes make requests that are quite 'unlawful'. like service in the back, drink from this fountain, use this restroom, do not show your face after dark, seperate but equal........"
can we really equate Ayinde's request to that of the white supremacist? if he was only "requesting" what was on one's own mind, is that oppression?
