    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Excellent questions CraigK, but I must refer you to the organization responsible for this court action, for answers. Here's a link to their contact information. Also feel free to post up any further concerns to that thread.

    I'd prefer reparations in land or gold and silver.
    Paper burns.

    Food rots.

    Ahh... conditional reparations tied in with some form of servitude such as employment.
    You benefit the current public school and economic system and then .... maybe .... we'll give you some.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Right, right. Its a good thing this conversation is hypothetically going nowhere, having no impact whatsoever on acquiring Reparations for our people.

    Peace In,

    Carrot and stick method ... with absolutely no guarantees that there will be a carrot at the end of that stick.

    Education followed by obtaining a job. A job is synonymous with employment which is a type of servitude.

    It is not. That idea is a loser.
    See every month you get a check in FRNs is another month you lose in purchasing power due to inflation.
    That's why I'd be more keen on precious metals, lump sum payment, and physical possession.

    Labor in and of itself is fine.
    Laboring to make someone else wealthy is something different all together. I'd like to get out of or avoid the latter.
    If labor is so rewarding, lets scrap modern technology and use stone age tools and methods to construct a two story home.

    If something is good, twice as much must be gooder?

    Depends on the "cash". Is it hard money?

    Again... employment... a form of servitude.

    What type of education would it be?
    I got a lesson plan that I believe is a sure fire winner.

    Yet the employer gets your labor (property) and the fructus (fruits) therefrom ...

    I'm more about property (that produces income) than a job (where you work hard to make others money).
    There is no money in employment.

    Citizens are already subjects and vassals of government by way of licenses, permits, taxes, and estates in fee simple.

    Citizens are already wards of government.

    Most people are wards of bankers, attorneys, financial consultants, and other fiduciaries as well.

    Teach them about servitudes and how to spot them.
    Teach them private property.
