negativity, this worlds great ugliness
found that and despair work concimittent
so I can't blame possesors of that attitude
we each address the system with different aptitudes
level I'm on you may never come ta know
and by no means, am I sayin your below
cuz aren't we comrades? arm ta arm with arms
why you cryin cuz theres no compass and we have to folLOW the stars
shits bringin morale down, should lose that foul pout
cynicisms better spent on those politicians downtown
cuz we runnin, the very same race
hoplessness got some not tyin their LACEs
rendering inneffective perfectly competent minds
the negativity inside preventin them from even TRYin
let alone some flyin but fuck it I'mma cast my line in the sea
even though I know, these triflin swimmers be PEEin
I see why you say what you say but dont agree.
it be's that way sometimes.
who's speaking of saving anything.....did I ever say SAVE the Ecuadorians or SAVE fruit pickers? NO......am I speaking for them NO......reading is wonderful it opens your eyes to many things.... the universal dislike for America and imperialistic countries alone is enough to come to the understanding that all is not well.....resources go beyond steak.....like food....water....SHELTER....many do not have this.....do I profess to know how it feels ....NO........what is imperialistic about being CONCERNED for them....Concerned enough to do what I can to help a situation I see as completely avoidable....this is completely independent of anything outside of myself.... how is that imperialistic...."you think that maybe if you or we as a people" could somehow provide them with the same things we call our own that they will be better off. imperialism."
find where I said that.....find where I've said brainwashing for that matter....people have problems with comprehension cuz no one has mentioned either one of those things....you choose to let things be and that makes you imperialistic.....if you say so....cuz I have not called you specifically IMPERIALISTIC....why people choose to argue points that were never points I'll never know...the key is this..."me becoming a vegeterian was my first step towards cutting myself off from things my concsious would deem undesirable"....I follow my consciousness....if you follow yours so be it....I don't want you to feel sorry for anybody....something else I've never said....as I've said the first person I will help....is MYSELF....or else I can't help anybody fruit picker or the beggar.....you know me....but you don't know how many I've given change or bills to.... I've done some foolish things regarding that.....as I get older I've realized that that is not my brand of helping....me sharing my opinion, sharing knowledge with someone previously ignorant of that knowledge,..is not imperialistic ....I've forsed my opinions on no one I merely put ideas in the air....concluding....some say wearing a condom only some of the time is not effective...I agree....still.....I'd rather wear it sometimes than never....even though I'm not foolish enough to believe wearing one even all of the time makes me safe from the dangers that make me wanna wear one in the first place.....shit.... some people don't have sex.....others have had it raw so much they don't see the point in wearing protection now....to each their own....so the defensiveness is unneccessary I'm not accusing anyone of anything....but if the cap fit? don't jump on the one who brought it to you, you should be happy he brought it to you,,,,,
and just because we're worse off.....do not confuse that with the original intent of the civil rights movement...those were idealistic times..besides....hindsight is 20/20.....and in a capitalistic sense....yes....we are better off....but me and you know that means nothing...that should be proof to you that this system is not well.....the more incoorperated into it we become the more "fucked up" we get....which is why I AGREE Ecuadorians are better off maybe not in the sense you say.....but....spiritually and culturally I believe them to be way healthier.....
Ohmmmmm....I believe we all are connected; I do not believe the food chain is the only thing designed in that manner.
and brainwashing is an oxymoron.
there is no right or wrong, there's only popular opinion.
was we better off before or after the revolution's of the sixties....mentaly I mean.
how is they're plight yours.
you have never known whats it's like to be a tibetan, Ecuadorian, Liberian, etc......
and yet, you speak for them?
that type of mentality is imperialism in itself. For all you know, those fuckers swinging from trees in the South Amazon are totally happy with they're situation and don't wont shit from us.
those Ecuadorian farmers will probally live 30 years longer than me, yet I should feel sorry for them because they ain't got enough change to buy a steak every now and then? the same steak i eat. the same staek that will probally provide the catalyst for a triple bypass surgery before 'm 60.
nahhh.......i aint buying that shit.
you know whats best for someone who doesn't know you. imperialism.
you think by the grace of whatever that you can save them from they're plight. imperialism.
you think that maybe if you or we as a "people" could somehow provide them with the same things we call our own that they will be better off. imperialism.
i choose to let shit be as they are and form as they will and I'VE somehow bought into imperialism.
my FAITH has never been stronger.
it's a jungle out here. we live on a Earth with limited resources. some will have this, that and the other......some won't, for WHATEVER reason. that's a fact that will never change.
if you want to help somebody, start with that fucker asking for change outside your job. i'm sure he'll appreciate it more than some former Ecuadorian refugee fruit picker.
"If there is going to be any accountability we would have to start with ourselves"
exactly.....I do what I can....I have Polo shirts and Tommy Hilfiger, Nike ish I've had for years....I'm not rich enough to throw the shit away....I'll put a black sticker on it....when someone asks whats that? I tell them.... I share my philosophies......I buy MY fruit from the local farmers market....but needless to say....I still contribute to the status quo both knowingly and uknowinglngy...everyday I learn more though....
as a human being I have a will...this country does not make me human.....surely any intellegence garnered on my behalf was greatly developed and influenced by America, such is true with the development of any being in relation to its environment. However, biting the hand that feeds me? I consider myself of the HUMAN race? that includes Tibetans, Liberians, Nigerians, Ecuadorians, Irish, and Palestinians. There plight is mine....until we realize that.....it's divide and conquer......when the world fought and revolted thats when things got better here....think of all the advancements in civil rights.....during the sixties.....when their was Vietnam and all those revolutions in Africa......oppressed peoples fates are inextricably sewn.....the get mine mentality seems tattooed on some....back in the day we were the first ta buy fancy carriages, now it's caddy's, the single consistent thing likening us to our ancestors: colonializiation. it's hard for the boeugious to see past the nice cars and homes and realize people are suffering so that we may sustain our often unnecessary lifestyles......but the boeugious is also very dangerous; they are often the forebearers of revolution....but revolution....begins with self....we learn from observation an participation....I'm abstracting////
-feels 145% dumber now...
Diamonds are corners intersecting,
you have no-where to turn...
but shine in my direction and i'll straightly reflect it...
thats my 2, peace.
. . .FaskoFLoW. . .
and yet they live on..........
because they're not caught up on imperialism, world trade, economies,......
the price we pay for they're fruit and what it took for them to get it for us.
Don't bite the hand that feeds you. condenming the same thing that put you in a position to pass judgement. AIN'T THAT SOME SHIT!!!
If there is going to be any accountability we would have to start with ourselves.
The only way I can truely see anybody making that situation even steven is for them to move to Ecuador and be a fruit picker for the rest of they're lives. Until a rapping Ecuadorian comes out with a record about they're life...........
Fuck it, I ain't buying that bullshit you just replied with, I know you better than that. I know you're smarter than that.
you an educated fellow huh...
sound like you a "speaker"
Nice rhyme too.
Let me set my philosophy straight.....we cut ourself off to atrocities everyday......people in Ecuador get paid 50 cents a day in money that is not even viable outside of the company they work for....these workers are incurred enoourmous debts because the prices at the company store at which the shop are ridiculously high, it gets to the point where they are no longer paid and are essentially slaves....when they attempt to run they are shot.....the dictatorships which allow this are funded and militarily equipped by the U.S.....any attempts at insurrection are squashed by the U.S. (see Che Gueverra)....this is so we can enjoy Guava fruit and oranges at prices which do not reflect the methods by which we get them....in other words the average AMERICAN citizen isn't even saving money by eating fruit harvested by unpaid workers.....a select amount of business men recieve exorbitant profits......Capitilism running most efficient.....profits maximized......expenditures minimized (what better way to reduce over head than to not pay employees) At any rate this is done with numurous goods in numurous countries....I contribute to that simply by living here.....but I'm aware.....and do what I'm able to do help rather than contribute whenever I can......we cut ourselves off to this....me becoming a vegeterian was my first step towards cutting myself off from things my concsious would deem undesirable.....try to look at everything I write within that framework.....comrade.....in the rhyme....anybody not of the 200 or so families which control the vast preponderence of this worlds wealth.....they.....look at as anybody who knowingly contributes to the perpetuation of this system in light of alternate routes....
i wont keep you-
it's all love. hit me up sometime, i'm always loosing numbers.
you'll always be immersed in something.
why is there a daily battle?
eye's on the prize.
if I did beleive their was an antagonist, I would believe it to be the capatilistic power structure. every problem in society, I believe, can be traced back to it and the frame of mind that comes with being daily immersed in it. That makes us all susceptable. oFTEN my writings are no more than a public enunciation of squabbles with my own concsious.
than whats your point?
why does anything even matter?
like i said i wish life could be this simple.
obviously it is for some.
there would have to be to make your rhyme viable-
if not an enemy for you then an enemy against you. protagonist- antagonist.
and so the story goes.......
