going above and beyond
In the Spirit of Sankofa and the Family!
Brother Emanuel Goodman ... i believe this may be part of why i'm not being heard.
My complaint is not about the occult. As you have said above, our discussing it, learning it, it being here ... is not new.
What is new Brother ... are the attempts at diminishing my people, this community ... right up in here, in our faces.
It is new ... Members wishing chaos and curses upon other Members. This is new, and if it is not new, please show me where it's ever been done / allowed here before.
It is new ... Members being threatened by other Members. This is new, and if it is not new, please show me where it's ever been done / allowed here before.
It is new ... Members coming in here, attempting to diminish us collectively. This is new, and if it is not new, please show me where it's ever been done / allowed here before.
It is new ... Members coming in here, locking us out of our own stuff. This is new, and if it is not new, please show me where it's ever been done / allowed here before.
The divisive energy present, has been mentioned by others as well, even Brother MetaSaience.
The fact that this energy resides here, is a big red flag for me, as it is totally contrary to our reason for being.
Whoever is bringing that energy here, insisting on feeding it, must go.
It's just that simple.
It's not personal. I actually am fond of all who are here, and will miss them should they leave.
If i must choose between ... a Member and maintaining this community's purpose for being ... the Member will lose every time.
I hate losing a Member this way, but they too have some responsibility in this, for they could choose to respect us.
I do not believe the above "new stuff" is inherent to the occult. I do not believe that in order to have the occult discussions here, we must also have the disrespect. I do not believe they go hand in hand.
I believe that some want to intertwine them, have us believe that if we ban them, we are also banning the occult ... and that's not what is happening ... for as you and others have said ... the occult has always been here ... it is not new. It was here when they got here, and it will be here when they leave.
I am growing very weary of talking about this, begging, hoping that the individual Members that are continually giving me these red flags ... bringing new examples of disrespect to us ... i am hoping they will stop, so they can remain with us.
If they don't, then that's on them. They will be banned.
And we will continue to discuss the Occult, the Metu Neder, the Bible, The Quran, The Books of The Dead, The Pert Em Heru / Kemetian Texts, and any and every thing else we wanna discuss, peacefully and respectfully. Just like always.
Thanks for sharing with me Brother Emanuel Goodman.
