Jahcub Onelove, You write: "All that InI have is from Jah."
TRUTH! It is so important to bear that in mind ALWAYS and never let some politician or corporation convince you that it is them, and not Jah, who provides for you. They're con men who take credit for the gifts of Life and material resources that Jah in HIS infinite generously gives so freely to us.

Blaesing are from H.I.M.

"Democracy, republics: What do these words signify? What have they changed in the world? Have men become better, more loyal, kinder? Are the people happier? All goes on as before, as always. Illusions, illusions. Besides, one should consider the interest of a nation before subverting it with words. Democracy is necessary in some cases and We believe some African peoples might adopt it. But in other cases it is harmful, a mistake."
-Haile Selassie

Ark I: "To I this whole thing is a big illusion. It is the same group of people ruling all the time. All they do is split their group up into two parties that do the same thing, but have a different appearance."

Right on. America the Babylon appears to be a transparently failed state these days: A man-boy, with the emotional development level of a 5-year-old, in the White House holding 800,000 federal workers (as well as the rest of the nation) hostage while a dysfunctional Congress, full of narcissists fixated on their own political fortunes, are completely unable to break the stalemate despite having the constitutional power to do so. Quite an indictment of a corrupt and completely failed political system that has put the USA so deep into debt -- a debt from which it's questionable if it can ever recover -- just to line the pockets of a very few ultra-wealthy "interests". We seem to be witnessing the collapse that many have foretold. Or maybe that's too dramatic and America the Babylon will survive until 2020 to eject the current lunatic child and elect another Obama-esque type of imperial madman so that life in the USA can go back to its normal, ambient level of dysfunctional chaos.

Twenty years ago i heard Fidel Castro make a remark, during one of his lengthy televised speeches, to the effect that Cuba could have an American-style democracy; all he'd need to do is form two parties and fill them both with candidates from the Partido Comunista de Cuba (PCC)". i broke out laughing out how true El Comandante's observations were. Years later his brother, Raul, said about the same thing when he quipped a Cuban analogy to the existing American political system: "It's as if we had two parties in Cuba and Fidel led one and I led the other."

Until the downtrodden & disenfranchised realize that they hold the real power and take to the streets in droves, until the billionaire elites and their wholly-owned political cronies (including the current poser in the White House) feel their comfortable positions starting to become tenuous; there will be no movement toward real change -- only the status quo and/or the continued transfer of wealth up the socioeconomic ladder.[Could it be that soon we may see a spike in the purchases of yellow vests by ordinary Americans?] i just worry that the overwhelming majority of people's brains may already be too wired to their electronic information devices and that those devices (& what they can be used for) are very well controlled by Babylon's elite powers-that-be.

JAH Love and family, the new generation -- Those are my hope (same as they were for a Russian serf under the Tsar or a Polish Jew in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1941). Hope that we will see in our lifetimes the destruction of racism, nationalism, militarism, neo-feudalism and all of those other Babylonian "isms" as we witness the rise of the Oneness Consciousness of Imanity.

“Democracy, Republic: What do these words signify? What have they changed in the world? Have men become better, more loyal, kinder? Are the people happier? All goes on as before, as always. Illusions, illusions.” - Haile Selassie I

What would Haile Selassie say about countries like Norway or Denmark? They are the nicest countries and there is no such thing as real poverty because the treasury is so high that if you end up at the bottom of society you'll still get a high social assistance.
Even the prisons are like hotels, but they also don't have no high crime rates for that reason.

In the old days it was a monarchy where the rich royals ruled and the poor had a hard time.

Scandinavian countries have been built through democracy over a long period of time where people have been allowed to debate and negotiate and they have certainly become blessed nations today.

I am not saying that corruption does not occur in these countries. I just find it difficult to understand Haile Selassie's words with: Have man become kinder with democracy? Cuz these countries are good examples of nations that had developed through democracy. Even though democracy is an illusion in countries like The US and Canada I find H.I.M words very hard when it comes to these countries. Hope some can help I understand a higher meaning behind the words.

Loyalty and kindness can never be expected to come from government. It has to come from community and culture.

Messenger: Ras RunMan Sent: 9/19/2023 4:32:50 PM

IPXninja So you're saying that the wealth of the country has nothing to do with how the government works?

Messenger: Ras RunMan Sent: 9/20/2023 5:11:11 AM

The wealth of Ethiopia in the time of Selassie was all about his leadership

For the people! By the people!

We all criticize and scorn governments of all forms while staying on the sidelines watching. Doing nothing. Bout time INI stand up and fill those positions!

"No provision has been made to protect the innocent,
Refugees in their own land and negligence playing
There is a way to make the conditions better to live in
There is no way we should continuing on accepting
The worst things and the most slumish type of housing
Bad I tear down, go in their wonderland they’re browsing
Let inspiration of how to fix this thing be arousing
Don’t expect the powerless leaders in power to do nothing

We own government, liars less in there
We own hospital, with herb medicine
We own doctrine, with our traditions
We own discipline, we start governing
We want we own thing, bring back the old thing
The ancient living, the touch the soul thing

For the people
By the people

Other cannot get it right so we need we own thing
Do more things to blind our sight and it is not working"
