Naturally this is more than entertainment that many can learn from.
To me, they do more fighting that working together to teach...
The religious money makers fears atheists because their lively hood is at risk and this could be the issue with Polite. As I can remember neither Dr Ben or Master Clarke were fond of these Judeo-Christian religions therefore I doubt any of these characters with diametrically opposed ideas could work honestly together unless they were perpetuating a fraud on the public. Everything under the sun has an history, objects and people have histories. Our problem arises when we fail to differentiate myth from history, beliefs from knowledge. All too often we go searching for shadows when none was cast in the first place. The fact is religion suppresses spirit and once suppressed it is extremely difficult to recover, but it can be done.
They have discovered what the church have known all along: the fools and their money are soon departed. What is the answer to all this? Must you all become autodidacts
and what tools would you all use for research? Please everyone reading this post, chime in!
To the contents of all the videos posted concerning ,apparent money grubbing, direct mostly unsubstantiated attacks on individuals and persons defense of religion that makes no sense. What is the answer to all this?
The grammer police may say, what are the answers to all "these"?
You mean response or solution to the perceived problem of difficulty as broken down above.
If one doesn't mind, let's layout the problem into a simple claim:
Religious/Conscious Pimps that desire to entertain your mind for a dollar, are not always good.
Are we not living in modern times where nearly everyone has access to an information source or knows someone who does. What is causing people to depart with their hard earned cash for religion or drugs. Is the dealer really the problem or the customer.
Answer #1: Market Value vs. Free Market
This is nothing new, but has become rampant because of how much can be made from it.
Capitalism is at the root of it, so to respond to it one would have to also respond to the root of capitalism:
Taking advantage of the 85% in order to gain capital.
Invest in the 85% to become more independent minded (refer to answer #2 below), would eliminate both Capitalism and Religious/Conscious pimps along with it.
But here is where it gets tricky, because at a certain point, capitalism will stop producing for those that are attempting to be independent. This is where free markets come in.
The root of capitalism is exploitation, once a particular exploited group is depleted a new one is needed to exploit.
Start off with the information of negotiating value of services, instead of accepting them without critique. This should be universal.
No choice when you have a monolith delivering services.
The kneejerk reaction would be to say:
"But this opens the door for unfair pricing that is not consistent."
True, and also opens the door for who ever doing this to become blacklisted once the word spreads. If I know of a producer of items or services to be unfair in their trade agreements or have higher trade standards than others, I would not choose to trade with them.
If one sees a potential pimp/hustler that charges money to hear them speak, one has the right to accept or reject this trade agreement, maybe even dispute it.
For $30, the trade is to see two men talk about black women live and in person
For $25, the trade is to see two men talk about black women, on a computer

Answer #2: Group and Cult Minded Thinking
People will en mass, group together because others are grouping together, which creates a lock that only an individual can break or unlock themselves.
Social Security is one of the biggest socialistic scams/shams in our lifetime, but until knowledge is presented to people about how and why it is, just saying it does little to help people break or unlock themselves from the spell(s).
Are you saying that since its inception Social Security has not benefited or helped anyone? Social Security was on solid footing until the government found a way to steal money form it. The surplus over the years should have been invested with a descent return. http://www.thebiglie.net/id5.html
When more people that have personal experiences with the hustlers and pimps speak out about them, similar to the Bill Cosby and Afrika Bam allegations, others will probably start to come and speak out.
But "cult minded" people are going to continue to be "cult minded" people, as long as the medicine they purchase or spending money on makes them feel good.
So the problem is not so much the purveyors of 'whatever" but the customers.
Look at Scientology for example
Going Clear on pace to be HBO's second-most-watched documentary
omg did minister Farrakhan sell his people out
Scientology and Farrakhan
This is probably not the response one was expecting... and it really isn't one that was expected to be delivering. But it is what it is, I have to listen to these thoughts as they come, and attempt not to ignore them.
I don't expect anything, just curious to hear the thoughts of others. However I do appreciate your response.Thanks
