US culture attempts to keep the people under a spell and ignorant to their power by programming them to believe in the system and distracted by conflict rather than building. You cannot watch the news or be on social media without being bombarded with all the killings, racism, bullshit politics, feminism, hotep, war, mass shootings, sexual abuse and all the other heinous shit that plagues society. There are debates, think pieces (which this is! LMAO), protest, marches, hashtags, viral videos and conscious discussion about all of the injustice and wrongdoing but WHAT ARE WE BUILDING? How long do people plan to fight to be a part of a culture (US Culture, US citizen) made to enslave people? Is US culture worth the fight?
The US is built on slavery and it can only continue to run on slavery. Most everyone gets up and works 8 hours or more a day to ensure their family can survive. They compensate you but they make the cost of living so high that you cannot stop working even if you really wanted to without the threat of starvation, homelessness and death. Sounds like a different form of slavery. In my opinion everyone is in need otherwise people would find more enjoyable things to do with their time. However capitalism has made it the goal for businesses to make as much "money" as possible while offering the least value. These large corporations like Walmarts, Shell, AT&T and so on are supported by the US government to suck the people dry. Which brings me to politics.
Voting is an outdated method of operation because there is likely only 2 candidates to chose from and both represent a major party. These candidates are loyal to the party, not to the people. Career politician is a lucrative job if you go along with the agenda. Large corporations pay them to pass bills that help them increase their profits, allow them to sell harmful substances, do harm to the community, go to war (War is a business move in US CULTURE) and lie to the general public about it. Many of the politicians thought to be for the people sit on board of directors or are shareholders of these corporations. The FDA currently allows numerous chemicals into the food that are not allowed in other countries and have been link to dis-ease. The EPA charges fees for pollution which are low considering these are multi-billion dollar companies which often factor these fees into their budget because it is more cost-effective than safety. The president is NOT ELECTED by the people and the people do not control the electoral college and the candidates are preselected by those with the money to back their campaigns (Yes even Obama). They own all the media out;ets and bombard the people with advertisement which has shown to be enough to win elections. Once in office the politicians follow their agenda and put on a good show for the people. Its the Real Politicians of DC, its like all the other fake "reality" shows.
SCHOOLING IN THE US
All education that is regulated by the STATE is for the STATE's benefit. People complain about the school system and what it is not teaching but why would the STATE educate you beyond their control. If they educated the youth to be free critical thinkers then the students would take a critical look at the government and how it runs and do away with it. Instead they use education to indoctrinate the youth to be their pawns and to continue to support their existence against their own interests. In school children are programmed to look outside authority and believe everything they hear from these so called authorities as truth. They continue to believe then for the rest of their lives. I personally did not realize their was information beyond and contrary to what I learned in school until after I received a Master's in Education. Not until age 23 did my true education start and it gave me a new perspective of the world. Reading the work of J. Krishnamurti, listening to Bobby Hemmitt, Taj Tariq Bey and reading books like The Miseducation of the Negro, The World and Africa and Assata Shakur's autobiography opened my mind to truth the current school system tries to hide. Its time to embrace a new type of education and research and science supports this statement. The US school system is average when compared to the school systems around the world and this is by design. They still teach Columbus discovered America and teach Manifest Destiny in a positive light when it represents the killing, enslavement and rape of the indigenous people of America. We need to teach our children truth! Let's stop selling our children short!
Even more influential than school is tv programming. Large corporations use tv programming and advertising as a form of mind control. The images and messages we take in shape our reality. Their programming is full of violence, fear mongering, conflict among other things that affect people negatively. For example, running advertisements about make up and plastic surgery and then having celebrities as the pinnacle of attractiveness keeps people insecure about their looks. The bombardment of ads about unhealthy food from fast food to candy programs people to want what they see regardless of the effects on their health. Glorifying athletes and paying them high salaries programs people to value athletics over academics. While people often will not admit to their programming, their actions show where their values are. People say reading is important but most people do not read everyday but they do watch tv everyday. The corporate conglomerates and their partners in crime invest billions in media and advertising and honestly all media has become advertising. They advertise the life they need you to live and how they need you to think in order to maintain control over your mind and subsequently your actions. UNPLUG!
Music is spiritual and has always been ink to our spiritual practices however the music that is pushed in the mainstream is negative and self-destructive and in the least is used to make people think a certain way. Rap music has become another form of advertising. They advertise their expensive brands, their dysfunctional thinking, criminal and drug culture. Everyone is quick to say it is just music because in school they never taught you the importance of music in the culture of our ancestors. However they use it to control the you and only about 20 songs by a handful of artist even make it to the radio. The music that does get industry support is not to be spiritually uplifting but mind programming. This is not what hip hop started as with KRS1, Arrested Development, Black Star and A Tribe Called acting as a balance for groups more like Mobb Deep and N.W.A. But even their music contained truth and help show the violent world people were living. However today they is very little balance and most music pushes sex, drugs and money with no mentions of the danger and struggle of such a lifestyle. They glorify self-destruction and the youth follow suit because the music is spiritual programming. UNPLUG!
TIME TO BUILD
It is time to build and detach from all of their programming. We need to be in control of what our children learn, hear and experience. This is a shitty culture breeding mass murderous, crime, poverty and a population apathetic to it all. So most people aid in their own oppression ignorantly and happily. And they will hold on to that reality for dear life but for those of us that see US CULTURE for what it is, lets build! What is our created education system, what it going to be hip hop and music to us, what legacy will we leave our children and grandchildren. Render onto Caesar what is Caesars or burn with Babylon. Connect with like minds and begin to build communities because we need to protect ourselves from US culture and create our own. None of our communities will be exactly the same but it time for us to rise up and do for self. No more begging a system made to enslave you to free you. Only you can free yourself. Its time to stop carrying the burden of US culture and build a new culture.
