Historical note on the subject of Barack Obama:
Real Change is not about putting a new person in the place, as the leader of the ruling empire. It can give some smaller changes maybe?!
Revolutionary change is more leaning towards seriously considering a turnover of the present power-system (What we in daily speak refer to as Babylon).
Let me remind you that Democracy is not in function at the moment!
In this situation we now look at - of worldwide importance and impact - every 4 years the system lets 5% of the world population, get the chance, to choose between 2 candidates, from - uptil now at least - 2 corporate depend parties, in a usually frauded election.
If a man like Barack Obama can win and enter the position of president of the ruling empire, and that way, help real change towards the fall of this Babylon system - and do it in a just way and positive manner - I can only approve of him.
Surely Obama leaves us much hope - it sounds like a dream having a Black man take over the White house.
The question is of cause, if this man can manage to be idealistic, realistic and pragmatic all the way to Babylon fall - which actually means moving dissolving his own position as president.
People to the power, Obama, please! That is real change...
Give thanks for listening,
Ras Thor Caf I,
For more words on these
and other issues
out the Philosophy-page:
We are gonna do our best to shake
awake the dancing warrior in you,
and motivate you all to go fight
for the NEW REVOLUTION, not another bloodshed,
but the REEL REVOLT,
that turns over Babylon Exploitation,
and gives the power back to the people, what ever colour, religion,
ideology, belief or passport
If the above is all nonsense to you,
please tune into the visual radiostation www.DemocracyNow.org, or watch Bowling for Columbine or Fahrenheit 911 by Michael Moore,
for introduction! Read or listen to Noam Chomsky,
Mumi Abu-Jamal, Bob Nesta Marley,
Marcus Garvey, Paulo Freire,
Vananda Shiva, Naomi Klein... Or look to the WORLD, because,
though far from totally perfect,
some extraordinary moves towards
real democratic methodic,
is happing there at the time. Search and you will find!
Speech by H.I.M. Haile Selassie I,
28th February, 1968: [Here reproduced as it was put to music by Bob Nesta Marley in the song 'War' on the Album 'Rastaman Vibration']
"Until the philosophy which hold one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war
That until there are no longer first class
And second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Me say war
That until the basic human rights are equally
Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
Dis a war
That until that day
The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be persued, but never attained
Now everywhere is war, war
And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
South Africa, sub-human bondage
Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
Well, everywhere is war, me say war
War in the east, war in the west
War up north, war down south
War, war, rumours of a war
And until that day, the African continent
Will not now peace, we Africans will fight
We find it necessary and we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory
Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil..."
