Dr. King was correct when he stated over fifty years ago that Black political leaders are surrogates for White power. The destruction of Black leadership by white liberals is the most damaging crisis effecting the Black community. Until this problem is confronted and solved, we should not expect anything positive to develop out of this unholy alliance between African American politicians and white liberals.
Black leadership is dead.They abandoned King’s philosophy of direct confrontation, which was responsible for the gains African Americans made in the 1960’s. Real Black leadership was destroyed by white liberals, and replaced by what Dr. King called “manufactured leaders.” These corporate appointed Black leaders are disconnected from the community and serve at the behest of their white political handlers.
The uncritical support for the Democratic Party platform, and especially weak leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, has placed the Black community in an extremely vulnerable position. The Black community lacks direction, because of its inability to select real leaders to represent their interest. Since the Black community is not permitted to choose their leaders, they are made to accept the weak candidates forced upon them by white liberals.
African Americans are in trouble. Their political handlers have stripped them of all power to make positive changes in their communities. The killing of unarmed black adults and children by white police officers, with judicial impunity, is a clear indicator that African Americans are under a systematic military style of attack. Why hasn’t the Democratic Party leadership made solving this issue a priority? Where is Nancy Pelosi when it really counts?
African Americans lack of political leadership has a devastating effect on the growth and development of the Black community. The lack of leadership is responsible for its stagnation and regression over the last sixty years. This lack of leadership is by design. Immediately after the death of Dr. King, the white money class took control over Black communal leadership, by financing the political campaigns of those who would represent their interest. That unholy subservient alliance signaled the death of real Black leadership. From the moment that alliance was sealed, African American politicians could no long represent the real interests of their constituents. They now serve at the behest of their political handlers and financial backers.
Today, there are no major Black politicians who have any measurable impact on changing the dismal predictions facing the Black community. The only hope for Black political leadership is to adopt the political philosophy of Dr. King, which centered upon nonviolent, Militant, Direct Confrontation with one’s enemies. Otherwise, the Black community will sink further into a state of powerlessness, until they become an ever-growing threat to the national security of the state. When that happens, police killings and other acts of white vigilantism, will become the law of the land.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. African Americans can decide to honor their ancestors and re-engage the enemy who has already destroyed millions of Black lives. Either we can choose to live in fear and experience something far less than life, or, we can develop the courage to confront those individuals and forces that are at war with Black growth and development.
Either way, we must move beyond just merely surviving, and develop the courage to live life in its fullness. As Orwell reminds us in his classic book 1984, that each of us will have to decide upon the Quality of life we want to experience: “But if the object is to stay Human, what difference does it ultimately make.” I don’t know about you, but I chose to stay Human.
The world has entered a turning point that signals a new beginning for some, and the end of an illusion for many. The masses in particular are entering a frightening time, in which they will find themselves surviving at the mercy of the oligarchs, who now have publicly taken over the world. The elite have always controlled the financial markets throughout history, but now they dominate a much larger share and their obsession and greed will lead to war.
There will be blood. This much we know is inevitable. Unfortunately, most of the blood will come from those who are programmed by the oligarchs for self-destruction. This is what happens to a society who surrenders independent thought for group-think. When a people no longer are allowed to express themselves and forced to adopt a politically correct rhetoric that is completely anti-democratic, one should not be surprised of the kind of people it produces. Not only is the news fake, but the people being produced from the propaganda they are forced to imbibe are also fake.
So now we have fake people who are feed a constant diet of fake news. Why should anyone be surprised when people like Donald Trump or Joe Biden are placed in positions of leadership? Neither are real leaders and how could it be any other way? Fake people are incapable of providing the masses with anything of substance. Therefore, the people selected to represent us, Must, out of necessity, be as detached from reality, as are the masses are from themselves. We are all as estranged from what is real, as we are from the power inside us.
There will be blood! When a people are no longer allowed to fully express themselves, and forced to adopt politically correct rhetoric that is anti-democratic, one should not be surprised of the violence it produces. It is the height of foolishness to believe that political solutions to problems effecting ordinary people can be resolved by the current political system, which is bereft of ethical principles.
Jacques Ellul argues in his book The Political Illusion, that we will never experience freedom until we first “demythologize politics, and put it into its proper place; it’s limited place.” This demands that we redirect our attention and place our focus on the “reformation of the democratic citizen,” because the system is beyond repair.
The reformation of the citizen requires that individuals have the right to express themselves. Freedom of thought cannot exist, until we demythologize they myths that imprison each of us. One of the recurring myths that has captured most Americans is the belief that “we the people” participate in the political process. It is the most harmful of all political dogma and creates the illusion that the people control the government by voting. In reality, the average citizen has no control over who is selected to represent them before a hostile government. The government is controlled by oligarchs like Bill Gates, who for all practical purposes, purchased the World Health Organization.
The oligarchs have never been subjected to how one votes or if they vote at all. Their political control over the financial market and the people is undeniable. In fact, life has become so politicized and reduced to voting for issues that are illusory at best. This has led to what Ellul described as a “boundless inflation of the state’s size and power. Our increasing dependence on the government and decreasing control over it by the people, who think they control it.”
Control over the people is maintained by propaganda. When the oligarchs engage in propaganda, they use the media. They in fact own the media, which is why Trump constantly refers to them as the “fake media.” He is correct. Their objective is to “ mobilize support for the special interests that dominate the state,” writes Chomsky.
Not only is the media fake, but so are the politicians who are media driven, much like any other entertainer. They specialize in creating illusions, and thereby cause many to believe they are in office to serve the community they represent. The real function of the media is to “manipulate images and spin information by the mass media. The manipulated images are controlled by the media and are deliberately, at times, ambiguous, to allow all interpretations and translations, and the graver the situation the more managed and edited will be the version fed to the public.”
There will be blood. Without the shedding of blood there is No remission of sins. War is unavoidable. Not because the people desire war, but the oligarchs, who control the masses, use war as a control mechanism to keep the citizens under a constant reign of terror. Orwell’s commentary in his book 1984, on the new use of war as a tool of propaganda is timely and quite revealing: “War, it will be seen, is now a purely an internal affair. In the past, the ruling groups of all countries, although they might recognize their common interest and therefore limit the destructiveness of war, did fight against one another, and the victor always plundered the vanquished. In our own day they are not fighting against one another at all. The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of the war is not to make or prevent conquests of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact.”
For example, September 11, 2001 or 9/11 was an internal war waged against American citizens from hidden powers within the country. It did not have the global effect as expected, although it did change much of the world. Today, the plandemic is another act of war. This time the effects are global. The world has already undergone drastic changes from which we are unlikely to recover.
The war is real. We cannot return to the pre-plandemic era when we hid from the truth. We have seen the enemy and unless we are willing to fight against these inhumane undemocratic forces of darkness, what we use to call freedom, will become a word so far removed from our memory, that even the coward will gladly choose to die, rather than live in an oppressive world controlled by oligarichal forces who are at war with human growth and development.
