    To quote him...

    "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
    ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

    This seemed to be the fundamental principle for most of his campaigns for European acceptance. The flaw here is the concept that "love" and "hate" are opposites of each other, or that hate is in effect the absense of love as he attempted to parallel with light and darkness. However, the absense of love does not connote hate. The result is rather indifferent, but is just as far from hate as it is far from love.

    Another thing to consider is that "love" and "hate" are actually the same emotion. In both cases, something is particularly wanted from another person. The only difference is whether or not those conditions are met which determines the outcome of either love or hate.

    The reason Europeans hated us is because we resisted their efforts to make us into perpetual slaves. The reason they felt a need for a Klan was to "keep the nigrahs in line"...that line was in the order of perpetual slavery. Now, back to King...since "love" and "hate" are in essence the same emotion, getting Euros to love us under the same conditions is perhaps more detrimental to the African than their hate.

    In our efforts to get them to love us, the cohesiveness of the African family and community has suffered more in the last 40 years than in all the centuries of slavery, Jim Crow, and institutionalized racism leading up to the so called Civil Rights Era in this country.

    Maybe you should explain that last paragraph a little more. There are different kinds and degrees of suffering. 1600 to 1900 was more of a physical suffering.
    Now those kind of physical chains are gone the mental suffering today is what we must have to get ourselves in our right minds and possibly be angel driven Gods and Goddeses again like the first people. We cant use too much of the kind of mental suffering that comes when you have a nervous breakdown because the your Time Warner boss is on your *** because you didnt keep your employees in line.

    I totally agree with your words; especially these:

    "Another thing to consider is that "love" and "hate" are actually the same emotion. "

    "In our efforts to get them to love us, the cohesiveness of the African family and community has suffered more in the last 40 years than in all the centuries of slavery,"

    love or hate

    these are two different emotions. First of all, let's examine EMOTION. E is representative of Energy, correct?

    Motion is just that, Motion.

    Energy in motion.

    Some of Love's well-known attributes are Care, Patience, Warmth, and Affection

    Let's contrast these attributes with some of Hate's many attributes: Selfishness, Impatience, Heat (H-a-t-e), Neglect

    As you can see, Love and Hate contrast each other completely. Love is slow and Hate moves fast and creates hostile environments.

    My thesis of these universal emotions concludes with saying,
    "Divine Love is our greatest weapon against Hate"


    p.s. Martin Luther King's most damaging flaw was his infidelity.

    Thin Line

    Maat/Herukhuti


    It takes alot of focused force to "Hate" someone or something. You are actually *sharing* a great deal of your time and attention to recognize it and alter your behavior in regards to it. I think when we find ourselves actively carrying out a "Hate" campaign we are really (maybe subconsciously) identifying with something within that we haven't reconciled with. There is an anxiety that stems from a lack of control that disturbs a sense of stability we have aquired for ourselves when this "Hate" stimuli is not around. Through our conditioning we take an extroverted stance against it and want to wipe it off the face of the earth; not realizing that it is just a materialization of an internal disequilibration. Don't get me wrong, the implementation of *Justice*:ref: does not require "Hate." Equally "Love" (The various interpretations we ascribe to it) is not distiguished enough (defined concretely) in and of itself to be a formidable weapon against hate. Hate IS (as bro tehuti stated) an emotional expression inextricably entangled with love. "Justice", which is Love's Nortons Anti Virus/Spyware, must be actively applied against hate. To truly work out the panoply of complements that also oppose (because Hate has a justice as well) we must transcend mechanical language and adhere to a system of thinking through imagery that geometrically demonstrates a harmonious balance.

    Love can also move fast and hate can also move slow. Fast is putting alot of energy behind it and slow is putting not so much energy. Its kind of hard to explain because it really has neccessarily nothing to do with how how much hate or love you have you can concentrate on just one thing but at a slow rate and create just as much energy. I hope those thoughts were clear.

    love or eros

    Love is just a word. We must put it into action! -Dr. Malachi Z. York (recent letter)

    It was also once said by Dr. M.Z. York that we should not use the word LOVE rather we should learn to care.

    Reason being, like many other words, LOVE has been manipulated. It has been stigmatized and associated with Lust. Hate has been associated with Crime, Kill, Murder, Fight, etc.

    I so agree with Men Nefer. These two must once again be geometrically aligned and situated. A great movement of separation and participation is needed. The bible states in Revelations,"...There will always be war and rumors of war." Most wars stem from territorial dispute. The world is going back to it's separatist roots.

    George W. Bush recently passed the North American Union. This diminishes borders in Mexico and Canada, joining all of North and some of Central America. Similar to the Eastern Union and African Union, this will allow easy access for foreigners and terrorists. Hence, the law will be dramatically altered.

    The Real ID Act has also been passed, requiring citizens of the U.S. to possess an ID card with a chip in it to unify all identification.

    Love it or Hate it, we're headed for NWO! So, if you're one of the haters, you better LEARN TO CARE for self and kind. You can start by eating better and taking care of your body. Next would be habitual cleansing of the mind through the immediate ceasing of all entertainment! Enter a tainted ment al
