Blessed reasoning I beloved, I have no disagreemant with the I's reasoning. The point that I am trying to make is the same point that you are making. HIS MAJESTY was only 14 years of age, when his father Ras Makenon, handed over leadership to him to carry on in the great transformation, of the living conditions of the lives of the Ethiopian people, so that it could be Ilevated to higher standard of living. HIS Majesty continued to walk in the foot steps of his father, since his father was the one who made that first move to change the degrading living conditions of our people. It must be clear to all of us who study the history of Ethiopia, that HIS Majesty was also working hard, and finding ways and means to uplift the lives of our people. So, since this is what HIS Majesty was doing, why in the name of African's liberation, we as Rastafari people have not done more industrially, for our selves and our people? And since we have not done enough, to create and preserve a united and harmonious relationship, with our African people in all walks of life, when are we going to create the needed transformation, within the RASTAFARI MOVEMANT, so that ways and means can be created, for us to work together as African people everywhere. Food clothing and shelter is a necessary quality for all people, regardless of racial origin, this is one of the main reason why people wake up each day and go to work. We cannot expect our people to give us that united support, when we have not, and are not creating the social and cultural structures, to create employment for them and their families. So, since we have not, and are still not creating any social structures, to attract our people to our villages, so they go to babywrong, where they can at least get some kind of work and assistance, to take care of their families. I agree that there may be some individuals, who may have manage to make some money out of the distribution of ganja, but some how some way, these individuals, eventually consider this wealth as their personal property, instead of using this wealth to create social structures and get the community involved, in that way the entire community would prosper, and we could continue to expand that model, from comunity to community, from generation to generation. If we buy large amounts of lands, then we could plant various kinds of fruit trees and vegetables, in order to feed our selves and our people, all the riches which people are fighting over in this world, comes out of the earth. Land is the true basis of freedom and liberation.
There is much more to be said on this topic, but now I really have to go hunting for my food so I will post again on this topic.
Again I send many oceans of transformation to our people.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
