This is a message to reason wit InI.
I hear many claim that Babylon is a condition. That may well be so. However InI can not forget the FACT, that the first Rastas Elders view Babylon as the great empires in the western Hemisphere. If that is the case, then Babylon would be a physical place, as well as a condition.
Zion as according to Rasta elders is a physical place in Ethiopia. But too can be a condition of mind.
Nobody own a monopoly on words, therefore nobody can tell InI how to use those words when describinbg our hellish state in America, Western Hemisphere, Diaspora, Babylon, Babylondon.
The only reason why InI reason on such terms now, is because not to offend white Rastas who come into the movement, whoose ancestry comes from these nations.
If InI have any questions of who Babylon is, study Leonard Howell of Jamacia. He is known as the first Rasta among the elders.
