Loyalty, Hubris and the optics of Free will

“Slaves and dogs are named buy their masters, but a free man names himself.”

 “I am pleased God made my skin black, but I wish He had made it thicker.”

–Curt Flood

“Free Will” is a philosophical term of art for a particular sort of capacity of rational agents to choose a course of action from among various alternatives.

-Stanford encyclopedia of Philosphy


Today I had the pleasure of catching the Will Farrell, Mark Walberg movie, the other Guys, with my 18 year old daughter. Besides the fact it was funny and intelligent in an understated way, what caught my attention was the closing credits. A PowerPoint slide show of statistics on corporate greed in the corporation called America Inc. While the show did touch on the subject, especially on the result of one of the protagonist, it being a comedy most people didn’t come to see a Michael Moore opus. The closing credit was sobering and rooted me back to earth, reminding me of how regular folks are being screwed royally by people who are either gate keepers or architects of this Matrix called White Supremacy.
