    we have all been taught to consume. every child wants a cell phone. none have any interest in how the cell phone actually works. that is a consumer mentality.
    it is more interesting to me to know how things work and the engineering behind them. your enjoyment of life is greatly increased by knowledge.

    i love knowledge and knowing things. all kinds of things. everything. anything. it's great fun.

    in the upcoming times, we will have to live off what we know. if all you know is how to consume you will have a rough ride as you have to have some thing to sell in the market place before you can consume. selling your sex is a losing proposition as it fades rapidly and there is a new, young, pretty thing every year. i am not anti sexual, it is just a poor gambit for a life plan. girls need to be taught that they need more than their sex. indeed, at the end of the day sex is the least of it.

    black people have been hood winked and bamboozled into thinking way too highly of sex. this is a trick. sex is fun but what is really fun is owning your own means of production. owning your own land. running your own country. why are black people selling themselves so short and being satisfied with getting some sex?
    half the population has a coochie, it ain't rare. what is rare is a person with a free thinking mind. why don't we value that?

    lets teach the youth better values.

    what is needed is to show the children the joy of learning. if you can do that the rest will handle itself.

    Bro. Elder J,

    This is something that is worth discussing. I say so, because it has to do with the future of black folks by and large - just about every black person across the world (specifically in America) is adversely affected by it.

    In order for the children to experiencing joy in this manner, the parents must absorb and take part in this experience as well. I would say teach the parents, so that they can teach the children. However, since I observe many parents getting involved in learning, I say both can experience it together. I mean, after all, when in church, aren't the parents (much of the time) right there with their children? (speaking in general)

    Also, as far as "consumption control," I feel that the action(s) would speak louder than the word(s). In other words, it will be more affective if we learn to show each other how to control our consumption, as opposed to continuously telling each other to control our consumption.

    I look forward to more views on this matter.

    MK

    Culture of Death vs Culture of Life*

    Hotep

    Every thing that does not promote life is only something that speeds you to your early death while you are still undeveloped spiritualy. Life comes from life! What ever makes the Black look like a fool, ideot, sambo, clown, thug or any perverted person is by design and not our true self as we have become under the watch of white superimacy.

    We have come to love being "Nothing" but consumers and not producers of the things we love to buy, that are mostly things we sure don't need to survive. We make the cosmetic industry "Rich" by spending billions on other peoples stringy hair and feel soo good with it on our stupid heads...why?? Who's hair is it any way and why does it have to be stright so that we can look just like our "Slave-Masters" children? We Afrikans in Amerikkka spend more than $20-Billion Dollars every year on this "Foolishness" alone.

    We eat but don't produce food.

    We sleep but don't produce our own beds and things.

    We love shoes but don't make any for our selves.

    We have lots of "Money" but spend it all on any thing except our "Liberation"!

    We have to be educated but still allow the Slave-Masters children to ruin our childrens minds like they did ours...reading their "Crazy" perverted "Books" about what ever they chose to indoctrinate us in...and we love it and think we know something but don't know a thing about take-ing care of our own!

    We need shelter but don't build anything for ourselves but feel extra proud to enter into some all white establishment and think we have it made while acting more white than they who are really white.

    Consumerism is the same as all of the other "ISMS" that we soo ignorantly injoy because we have forgotten what it means to be your self and that is..."Hue-Man".

    To be Hue-Man/Hue-Wo-Man means to only and forever be your Origenal black self and not try to copy or follow any "False" notion or state of false being that we try soo hard to imatate and look stupid to the world but think we are looking good!

    Any thing that is false, evil, wicked, poison, intoxicating, fabricated, too-tight or extreamly anything ect...is part of the "Culture" of death and too meny of us soon find ourselves at deaths door before we are even "Old"!

    We must come out of the "Mind" totaly and absolutely that was and is given to us by the so-called white man and woman...along with all their "Images" of devine, beauty, habits of eating, pomp and glitter etc...before we can even begin to understand what it means to be a Hue-Man-Being as our Ancestors are. We have become less than what we are ment to be by Creation and that is our Origenal Black Nappy headed, Big lip Black self...and stop thinking we are the same or brothers and sisters to those other than our self.

    The culture of Death is not the same as the culture of "Life" that is your Spirituality!
    What you Think, Eat, Worship determins what culture you are a part of. A better term or word for the culture of death is "Anti-Culture". Any thing that is not good to and for your "Black" survival is anti-culture and always, always and always leads to your Slavery, Suffering and Death because of it.

    Embrace your (Origenal-Black-Culture) of life...the concepts of life is what built, developed, cultivated the life of harmony our ancestors injoyed before the filthy european "Invasions" that has brought us to this point of shame...with out a pure knowledge of "Self". They (whites) have not or ever brought any thing what so ever to us except "Death"!!

    Read, travel, study and devote (Do your own reserch) yourself to something that is for "You"...that is the Spirituality that you were born with...we call MAAT...the concept of "Life" for the Black Man and Black Woman...given to us by the creator from the beginning of time.

    You don't have to continue down the road of "Self-Distruction" by way of the concocted "Religions" that have been forced on us only after we were first made ignorant and blind by those who have re-wrote history and put them self in your place...and now have you "Secretly" worshiping (White Superimacy) them.

    In the words of your devine so-called Afrikan ancestors...People Know Thy Self. When you take one step twords the ancestors...they run to you!

    The value of learning is tied to the joy of learning. When we instill the value of attaining knowledge in our children, they will see that learning is its own reward and then that will, in turn, spill and develop into being more producers than consumers.

    spread joy

    i believe the human mind is set up to be a learning machine. there is no upper limit on knowledge that it can absorb.
    learning is one of our first pleasures as a baby. just watch them go! it is also one of the last pleasures left in old age.

    this need not be a secret.
