*******But trying to be realistic about it that the simple reality of having African people feel lifted psychologically and to feel hopeful and positive in itself can bring positive effects ********
We have BEEN feeling lifted psychologically by illusions.
Crack makes people feel good
Meth makes people feel good
BET makes people feel good
Irresponsible sex makes people feel good
Escalades make people feel good
Subprime easy homebuying made people feel good
Charismatic preachers make people feel good
Booze and nightclubs make people feel good
Egotistical status and titles make people feel good
Figureheads make people feel good
What are the positive effects?
Where is the TRUE uplift in ANYTHING that is superficial and does not heal or transcend the soul or the entirety of humanity?
