I don't want someone to agree with me. I want a PERSON who will challenge my position. In this way, we will arrive at TRUTH together.
We can train ourselves to take each other's ideas, beliefs, and understandings seriously. The rule is to stay focused, calm and pay attention. Communicate and discuss, rather than yell and proclaim.
If anxiety, about needing to be right, becomes the primary concern, one becomes entrenched in one's own position, Which may not be the truth. If one gets defensive and responds impetuously, that one has lost the battle with oneself. If one has the need to be right, this one is imposing one's own ideas.
Now, the upper1% is those, behind the scene, who start wars, inflate prices, and condition the masses to hate each other, themself, and their culture. They use Television brodcasting as their main weapon. This is the primaryy tool that divides and leads the masses.
Some say it is a group called the Illuminati. A very wealthy and extremly powerful group of the upper 1%(financially, and corporately) who are pushing the buttons.
Henry Kissinger is believed to be among the Illuminati. Note his quote from his book" Kiss the Boys Goodbye" " "Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy."
- Henry Kissinger, quoted in "Kiss the Boys Goodbye: How the United States Betrayed Its Own POW's in Vietnam"
Now, you may not want, nor feel you need my help. But why is it you cannot get things moving collectivly? Nor can I.
Hey there are many very succesful black people. With some serious cash flow. Yes? Then why can you not get a seperate Nation for blacks? If that is what you desire. As to the Native peoples, before it was stolen and called "America" , most live in "refugee camps" called Reservations. They are terribly poor, dirty, and have no economy. Less those who over the past 15 years have struck gold with gambling. Is this what you want for black peoples? I doubt it.
The "Illuminati" does.
Reparations? Yes. By the Government. ( the people, you and I). how much, to whom, and what will it accomplish?
Also, I admit I am "white". So? Does that mean I am a racist? When I walk, I see, I hear, and I feel. Exactly like a black person. Do I know what it is like to be black? No. Can I engage and try to offer constructive critisism and dialoge? Yes, if permitted. When I see a person of "color", I see a person who desires the same things I do. Fair play, and all the same perks of life. Guess were not so different afterall. In this regard. My skin color is a covering. Unique. As is all peoples. Unique. Beautiful, as God created it. It is what lies under the skin that makes the person. It is the heart that defiles, or beautifies the person.
