“in my humble opinion:
1)iani spend too much time debating issues that are in mnany respects, 'philosophical' and not practical.”
What is “philosophical” to you about all this and “not practical”? Or how “practical” can you yourself get over an Internet discussion forum? What is wrong with being “philosophical”? Why -- allow me to say -- don’t you simply stay out of it?
And how much time is “too much time” to you, anyway? … Of course I don’t agree with you, needless to say (and I hope that the majority of people here doesn’t!). Why must YOU -- you and only you, of all people! -- attempt to decide for others (ESPECIALLY if you’re pro-black/pro-Afrikan), since we all evidently choose to see things through own eyes? If the topic is of interest to others (depending on the size of the thread, perhaps also because of their race), isn’t that reason enough that OTHERS –- (unfortunately, not you!) -- find the discussions interesting, perhaps even enlightening (to them)???
“2)there is such a wonderful forum here to organize, centralize and work to build coalitions to assists africans at home and abroad-but our primary debate; what seems to get iani the most innergized and 'fired-up' is reasoning about whites.”
I suspect you’re asking that we all “close” this topic (and I think you’re even saying ANY TOPIC) about “whites”; or perhaps that we “close our mouths”!! … What’s so personal about it? Does it disturb you that people feel their lives have been influenced by “whites”, shaped by “whites”? Or that their “black” lands were stolen by “whites”, that “white” King Leopold of Belgium -- or his agents, who were criminals and thieves -- massacred 10 million “black” Congolese in the closing years of the 19th century? … Or that the first case of genocide in the 20th century was -- not “white” Hitler’s “Endlösung” against Europe’s “white” Jews, but -- the butchering of South-West African “black” Herero people by “white” agents of the “white” German Kaiser? … Or that, all in all, “white” pirates, thugs, conmen, mercenaries, agents and “emissaries” have slaughtered an estimated tens of millions of “black” Afrikans over just the last 500 years on the “black” continent of Africa? … Isn’t it even more interesting (this time: *ABOUT YOU*!) that, despite obvious proof of all these RACIALLY motivated killings and stealings (which, you also should know, H.I.M condemned throughout his rule/life), we hear only SILENCE from the establishment and from you! Not a word of empathy, nothing! Nothing but a cocktail of dead silence and some fear!!
I guess you’re not an Afrikan. Please excuse me if I’m wrong. Please just remember that we are all here for different reasons and it is not your duty to tell people why they are here, or to decide for people (in that tone …) what is necessary for them to discuss … (I hope I’m “within bounds” with our brothers and sisters in saying that) … Accept that some people here are not like you, but are different from you! Tell me: what would you do, if you yourself were a black Afrikan (even a Rastaman!), who sees the oppression or killing of his people day by day, in their own land? Would you close your eyes and pray???? …
“3) who here has a plan for 'black repatriation?'
unfortunately, i doubt that there would be such a response if iani were to reason about our collective forwarding home?”
You think even if anyone here had a “plan” they would divulge it to you -- just like that! -- over the Internet, with its many faceless spies?? Be serious, man! The blacks and others here are saying whites are good at “divide and conquer” and one bumps into such tactics on the Internet, too. Sometimes, there are artistic wars to fight, not always with guns!
“to be continued”
[The information in your second post is more or less the same as that in your first, to which this reply is …]
A TIP: If you want info on who caused the wars in Rwanda/Burundi about 10 years ago, or who knocked down that plane …, or if you’d like to know where all those arms were made and who shipped them across, how and why, check out some really ‘whacking’ sites on the Internet for really devastating Information: The Bitter Truth! Don’t be too shocked when you learn the truth about some of this gimmickry going on in this global merry-go-round!
For a philosopher’s mind’s eye -- or for an Artist, perhaps even for this guy -- here is something interesting to read:
WHAT IS THE SOUL?
George Orwell, in his book “1984”, invents a new language -- called “Newspeak” -- in order to accomplish portraying the scary policies of a futuristic “World Empire”, one gigantic dictatorship. The book’s “strength” and psychological “attack” are more prevalent than the reader may be aware … covert … (in other words: today, such as it is done in advertisement and marketing, including the marketing of entertainment).
George Orwell makes “his” strategies clear in his book; “Newspeak” is but one of them. What the reader finds out, approaching its end, is that the character Winston, who was looking for a way to rebel, has walked into the hands of what was supposed to be the enemy, in his attempts to defy the enemy. Orwell’s society in “1984” is entirely controlled and wired! What is unfortunate, is that this happens every day! More and more youth, who are disenfranchised with what they see as a society building “higher walls” around them, are turning to a trap that was set up to foster their own destruction. From the standpoint of imperial policy, this is known as “gang and counter-gang”; or, better, “divide and conquer”: You play both sides, so that there is no escape, see?! …
Orwell’s character BRAGS about this in “1984”:)))
“We control life, Winston, at all levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do, and will turn against us. But we create human nature! Men are infinitely malleable. Or perhaps you will return to your old ideas that the proletarians or the slaves will arise and overthrow us. Put it out of your mind! They are hopeless, like the animals! Humanity is the Party! The others are outside - they are IRRELEVANT!!”
I hope not too much “philosophy” there again … (I guess).…
