Sa - the strength of the relationship; tying individuals into the concerted effort. The fundamental understanding that the power of the group is much more important than the pursuit of individual interest. The group is the primary unit of analysis in the determination of individual survival and empowerment. The idea that the group is the most powerful form of human consciousness. Our ancestors understood "Sa" as the foundation of all their nationbuilding activities. For a true Afrikan, it is a personal philsophy of "I am because we are." Without Sa, there is only the illusion of progress.
