...Have either of you even read the actual REASONING about The Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey below??? (It begins with selassielive -- Friday, 15 June 2007, at 9:26 a.m.)
Disciple, the I is so caught up in trading insults with Priest Adofo that you haven't even engaged in the reasoning about your own original question!!
Priest Adofo, why not answer the I's question with facts instead of tirades? Disciple asked a question that some of us have attempted to address. With thy knowlege and standing within InI movement why not reason about Garvey and his business ventures? Why not participate in a sharing of ideas and come to overstand how ones and ones have been led to question Garvey's business successes / failures? The I knows by now, that to come at Disciple with fiyah will only incite a back and forth game of trading insults. Why not be a little more strategic and rise above it? Certainly any one of us here can not possibly pose a threat to the I; so why not explore one another's ideas instead of condemning ones and ones for thinking differnetly or for asking questions.
We will all make mistakes and in my opinion, need to have a safe environment where asking questions and making mistakes is permitted inorder for InI to learn and grow. Selassielive has already posted a proverb re. the importance of asking questions. I will add that Kwame Ture wrote that The Osageyfo used to tell him that "The only people who never make mistakes are people who never do anything".
Please, if ones here ever think I have made a mistake, let us reason about it in a manner that will help I to feel free to make more and continue learning.
