Civilizational Mobsters

Religious extremists have terrorized humanity for over 2500 years

I can’t think of any time or place where I’ve heard the word “mob”, and it’s notorious connotation, used in anyway positive or praiseworthy. Yet in the world of human interaction and societal interrelation, the battlefield of ideas, make this type of group the commonplace structure within which human beings are forced to exist. If you’re asking how, let me elaborate. A mob, as far as we can observe, has always been a large group of individuals usually brought together based on an emotional reaction to a circumstance of some nature. This reactionary stimulus is responsible for setting the conditions in which mobs are formed and is where we can trace the hidden hand controlling the battlefield of ideas at play. islam-will-dominate-the-world_1

What could be a more fitting example than the recent emergence of the so called ISIS insurgency and its antithesis in Western opposition?

The history of ISIS, whose official motto is, “Remaining and Expanding”, can be traced back to conflicts that began as far back as  2,500 B.C. when certain groups of humanity departed from the civilizing values of humanity’s original culture, known as Kemetic culture. Kemet was the founding civilization of the highest cultural, spiritual and intellectual achievements, whose capital straddled the banks of the river Nile even long after the times of this fateful rebellion. So, the ongoing pendulum swing of political ambition expresses itself through the ages up to this very day.  As with most other groups of its ilk, ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) has taken up the banner or baton of its many predecessors whose histories seem inextricably linked. That link is particular to this part of the world, the so-called “Middle East”, that appears forever mired in the chaos born from the fissure that occurred between the original culture and its rebellious offspring. Since that time, the so called Eastern and Western worlds have been locked in an infernal struggle between factions of these original rebels.

Humanity’s Freedom

The Nile Valley Civilization provided humanity’s original value system, enabling it to accomplish amazing feats unmatched by modern technology

What makes knowledge valuable is when it is applied to the consciousness of the individual in order to achieve enlightenment– to become a good person. According to humanity’s Ancestral forefathers, being good requires that our quality rise higher today than it did yesterday. To achieve such a feat, we need a reason as well as a guide to do so. When we seek the fundamental knowledge of human societies and behaviors, we find ourselves in Africa (Meritah) looking for the clues to human history.

Holy Days or Holidays

The_First_Thanksgiving_cph

There are many stories about the origins of Thanksgiving, but do any of them honor our origins?

Since the beginning of human civilization, holidays or days of observance have been cherished as special occasions amongst families and larger communities. The original holidays of humanity are extremely important, and they started as holy days observing very specific spiritual and/or astronomic events. Presently, the “holiday season” still brings joy and comfort to all in colonial territories.

For years the origins of the colonial holidays have been exposed by honest researchers. Those origins reveal a very terrifying history of colonial barbarism, genocide and deceit. This deceit not only keeps many ignorant of the true origins of today’s celebrated holidays but also seems to trap even the families who become aware of them in continuing on in “the spirit of the holidays.”

No Island of Peace

“There can be no island of peace in an ocean of blood and tears.” This is a wise saying that is certainly relevant, even in the literal sense, when exploring the role of the Caribbean islands in the transatlantic enslavement trade. Early in the colonial period of “discovery”, these islands were actually some of the first to meet the imperial hand of the European colonial empire, as it stretched across the vast blue waters of the Atlantic. The white sands covering many of the beaches that are now tourist attractions once bore the bloodstained footprints of humanity’s greatest genocide. During the period of the slave trade, spanning from the 1500s to 1800s, these beautiful islands were often the first stop along the infamous “Middle Passage”. They would become colonies and homes to large slave plantations and with that, would also become a new home to many descendants of enslaved Africans, once chattel slavery was finally abolished.
