Carter G Woodson in the miseducation of the negro, wrote that there are two types of education I man receives in his life. That which is taught to him and that which he acquires for himself. Woodson also went on to state that...“If you can control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his action. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself. If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one.“
Due to two primary factors or institutions, knee-grows have been beating a path to the backdoor of Western Civilization and in fact world history everyday……. Everyday? Yes, because history and our story is being written everyday, every time we breath, as long as we are alive. You and I have to decide HOW we intend to write our story because for sure the victors of the European imperial and colonial wars against the ancestors and descendants of Africa is writing his/her own. <—– When I clicked on this link i had to say what the fuck!
In 1783, during the height of American Slavery, Count Constantin de Volney said, “The Egyptians were Negroes. Just think this race of Black men today, our slave and object of our scorn, is the very race to which we owe our arts, sciences and use of speech. People who call themselves the greatest friends of liberty and humanity have approved the most barbarous slavery and questioned whether Black men have the same intelligence as whites!”
The two aforementioned factors and institution are the public fool system and the temples of worship. By setting up these two institution, the doers of Isfet(chaos, (as opposed to Ma’at, which is balance) are assured that they soften us up both mentally and emotionally. This is not the same chaos or primordial soup the Memphite creation myth, but one where destruction of Ma’at is constantly being sought. Keep in mind that the oppressor is vastly outnumbered by the oppressed, but in studying and later stealing our knowledge, the doers of Isfet have been able to utilize first our emotions, through the love of a creator/creation, to control us, then it becomes much easier to control us in the other areas of people activity, as outlined by elder Neely Fuller. Those areas are (1) religion (2) sex (3) war (4) education (5) entertainment (6) labour (7) law) and (8) Economics.
Yesterday I was speaking to a good friend about the movement in the Island of Jamaica to move the language from the derogatory term Patois, to the more dignified term “Jamaican” and make it the official language. In a local paper in my city, I read where a knee-grow was decrying such endeavor as a failure of intellectualism. He claimed that since English was the major language of trade, and it would cost too much to change educational and governmental documents, that this is a non stater. Yet this knee-grow failed to explain why in Japan, Kanji is the primary written and spoken language, yet the Japanese are among the wealthiest economy materially. He failed to explain how many western business men are learning Cantonese because they feel that that will be the language of choice in the near future for commerce, as China flexes and continues to rise from its slumber. I explained to my friend the pride Jamaicans would feel if they could see, speak and write in their own language, she countered that building the economy is more important. But Jamaica’s economy is based on servitude. Tourism, IMF loans and in a lesser extent drugs. Many of us as African people, are economically sound, from illegal ventures to legal ventures (just like almost every other nations including the Europeans), but we don’t have a collective pride similar to say the Japanese. A nation just 70 years ago was devastated by two hell fire bombings, but came back to own most properties in the US. To have numerous professionals and politicians in every sectors of the people that tried to destroy them.
But what makes the Japanese, Chinese and even the Caucasian Arabs different is not their wealth, but the pride in educating themselves and holding on to their traditions. Even when they go to the west to get edumacated, only a few actually turn their backs on their traditions and culture. Their culture and tradition is their religion. What is ours? I have come to believe that religion is the most powerful weapon ever used against Africans and continues to be our Kryptonite. In speaking to another friend, I invited her to a get together in December. She is a good sister, but she was concerned about the end of 2012 fast approaching and wanted to huddle with her family…just in case. Didn’t we do this on the eve of 2000? But because we believe the European fantasy book and the false teaching about the Mayan calendar, by people who either ignorant shits, or controlling elitists, we are huddling in fear from things we neither have control over or are not even real. That is until we make them real. This where controlling our emotion is crucial to the doers of Isfet. Social scientists and psychologists have often stated that your environment dictates how your personality is. Your personality is more about your emotions that your intellect. Because people confuse intelligence with education, idiots who do, believe that merely having an education or intellectualizing a problem will either bring negativity to, or bring positivity to you. Unless we remove ourselves from this form of conditioning and control, then we will forever be fodder for the mean machine of death.
As Dr. Woodson said..“The oppressor has always indoctrinated the weak with his interpretation of the crimes of the strong.” He is talking about education, but he could easily be talking about religion too. Because nothing…i repeat NOTHING has enslaved us more than religion. This belief in our unworthiness in comparison to Caucasian people is psychologically and emotionally as terminal as a bullet to the head. Actually a bullet to the head is quicker and less painful. Carter G Woodson stated, “As another has well said, to handicap a student by teaching him that his black face is a curse and that his struggle to change his condition is hopeless is the worst sort of lynching.”
Most of us have heard of the Dead Sea Scrolls but, how many of us are aware of the Nag Hammadi library? ACCORDING to the EXPERTS????? And I emphasis according to….many of the Dead Sea Scrolls are older versions of books from the Old Testament. Many believed that they were in fact the oldest known surviving copies. The Nag Hammadi library are said to be newer books, books from the Christian Era. Note the term Christian era…when their was no Christians then. According to the tale written by the hunters, the Nag Hammadi library include some of the books in the New Testament, and also some ‘apocryphal’ books, books that were left out when the New Testament was assembled. One thing they said was true and that was none of the Nag Hammadi books were the ‘original’ version, but older versions than previously known about. The Nag Hammadi and the Dead Sea Scrolls are both collections of books that show how the bible was re written. In fact if one did a thorough study of Jimmy Stewart…not the actor…but the Anglish King James, of whom the more popular bible is given credit for, we would find a very non Christian heathen, homosexual psychopath, pedophile murder and anti African devil (did I forget anything), which is part and parcel of the Brutish Monarchy.
This is the devil’s distorted version of the further distortion of African teaching that is not controlled by African people. The term Gnostic, is Hellenic language for Gnosis or knowing, knowledge. This come from the directive, Man Know Thyself, which is the apex of all knowledge. Malik Al Shabazz once said that “Of all our studies, history (and our story) is best qualified to reward our research.”
To know his story one must first know our story, or as Sun Tzu stated in the Art of War:
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
– Sun Tzu
But we while we have researched many aspects of our cultural narratives, many of us fail to counter the conspiracy because we still send our children and women to the killing fields of public and post secondary schools and worse in to the temples of inequity. All temples, not just the Eurocentric temples but the Caucasian Arab’s temple, The Khazar’s temple and every other temples that are offshoots of the three.
