Facebook is an exploitation of our social instinct, that people-based bonding is so critical for our success as a species on planet Earth. That longing to find validity and comfort in groups. To be seen, to be known. To know. Herd behavior, in a traffic jam when you see everyone turning down a small side road to avoid the block, you follow. There is trust in mass decision-making. This is in our DNA. We are not as sophisticated and “independent” as some make out. The new currency has gone from gold to paper to ‘likes.’ as with those former currencies people are willing to sacrifice everything to have them, despite them having zero real-world value.
The common school system is akin to KFC fast food. That is all it is. And it is hard for many to accept because we are also victims of this system. We trust it with our kid’s education, we trust it when they say accept some more credit card and get into deeper debt. Why would you trust these people with your kid.? What does society want? Slaves that is it. They don’t teach critical thinking in school. They don’t teach them to be leaders in industry, only workers in industry disconnected from the process (Chomsky). They most certainly don’t teach them to think for themselves. The job of the system is to produce functionites.

It mitigates everyone else to prop up European history as central and the definitive benchmark of advanced human society.Read more
Information is so much more than fact or non-fact. Africans enslaved other Africans is a fact, but I would not call it a truth since just that so-called fact fails to do justice to the complexity of the topic. Blacks commit more crimes in the USA considering their percentage in the population is another so-called orphaned fact. It again is a fact used to distort other more factual realities. Can we study the epic topic of knowledge without asking what is its greater purpose? Because if we ask that question then we are in a position to better make use of it. So knowledge is a complex subject and should never be oversimplified into fact Vs non-fact.Read more
“African spirituality” emerging as a new pseudo denomination. We see the loose generalization of a “tribal Africa” with drums and Umbuntu and libation, divorced from the reality of a diverse Africa. These over simplified echoes and fragments of authentic African spiritual experiences inadvertently are New World skeletons of deeper African symbolismRead more
