Also, this submission to structure seems contrary to the notion of a god creating whatever he desires. Please reconcile the discrepancy for me?
I do not see a discrepancy..... could you please elaborate on the discrepancy you see.... perhaps I can better answer your question... Smile

I'll rephrase, then leave it be if the question is still unclear:

How can a man be a "god, creating whatever he desires" if he is following the structure created by another man? Elsewhere, you commented on the corporate world and the law of nation/state and that a man following the structure of these was essentially a "renter". How is the man following Min. W. Fard or Royall not a "renter as well?
My intention here was not general..... it was specific type of relationship.....

ummm..... Man whose culture has systemically tried to break the Black Male down to nothing for centuries.... almost since his own time has recorded him on the planet....

I was simply saying...... this man rules.... and many are comfortable with it... because they see a place for themselves here.....

Its this type of thinking that is a little distateful.... for what my definition of what a man should be.......

You are comparing apples and oranges.....

In other words.... Let's take hypothetical "Malik" whose been harrassed and beat up consistently by a bully ever since he entered high school....... Malik used to be popular but allowed the bully to mess up his reputation and his standing..... now Malik is no longer looked up to.... he's pitied and tolerated at best.... but always having to cow tow to the bully who stripped him of his standing...... and his dignity....

The bully doesn't stop.... he pesters him subtley and occasion will leave him alone when he's tired..... and even on some occassions will even allow him to hang out with the new popular crowd....

Something inside Malik feels degraded hanging out with him...... although in the present climate he may feel he has no choice.....

"Malik's" relationship with the bully at school is different from his relatiionship with the man who helped him learn how to fight......


the person on the outside looking in....

may look at Malik and think this is nothing more than making quick peace on the playground.... offering the bully an olive branch if you will...... and not see the other implications of this.....

or one can look at Malik and see that his manhood is at stake..... and he needs to fight for deeper reasons.....

or one can expend and enormous amount of energy trying to "talk" to the bully

or one can realize the bully is not going to change at this moment..... and will stomp poor Malik if he doesn't get enough courage to stand up for himself..... by himself.....

one should be able to recognize the difference unless he identifies too much with the bully.....

perhaps because he's gained too much benefit from hanging around the bully and doesn't want it to end or doesn't see how the ruling popularity could change into his favor.....or doesn't see himself in that position.... just doesn't see it.... too blinded by the "benefits".....

So blinded he forgets that Malik is his brother... and he too could feel the same amount of pressure if he stood up for himself....

Just doesn't want to.... too much pain involved.... not worth it.... even for dignity's sake....

JMHO.....
