*******We as a people are Reactionary and not Proactive.******
Maybe YOU are, but you are in no position to speak for an entire people you arrogant ignorant uncle tom.
Sorry about your wanting to avoid semantics, but you played the semantics card YOURSELF.
You said yourself that the definition of "intervene" is:
1. To come, appear, or lie between two things:
Then you go on to say:
*******According to you, An intervention occurs when an outside force positions itself between opposing participants.
This is incorrect, as it only represents 1 dynamic of the word*****
*******I can have an intervention with my child who I have concluded is behaving in a manner that is unacceptable; yet I am intervening - but I am not an opposing participant in the relations b/n my son and I. *******
Its not the semantics you are missing. It is the context. It is arrogant to try and correct someone when you yourself are the one who is in error.
Karibkween's usage is ON POINT.
All that time over in paradise and you still have your american arrogance.
To come, appear, or lie between two things
An intervention occurs when an outside force positions itself between opposing participants.
Where is the flaw in her usage? Do you have a problem with "opposing"? Because other than that her usage is pretty much VERBATIM to the dictionary's definition.
I have no idea why you, on your noble mission, would have the time to bicker about such trivialities.
THE AMERICANS ARE COMING!!!
THE AMERICANS ARE COMING!!!
And instead of that being a warning to the people, you want to go and slay a fatted cow and welcome mr. CIA and mr. assassin into the land...AGAIN. No different from the chiefs who sold out his opposition to the slavetraders.
I will say it like I have said before. You are a missionary with a black mask. While you get people out of metal shanties and into constructed residences, you are also introducing them to the materialistic mindset of the european.
You are an ANTI-rastafarian. You are the opposite of what rastafari stands for.
Here you have people trying to ERADICATE the babylon mentality, and here you are peddling it.
What you have really done is ran from the titanic of your hometown instead of digging in and fighting.
