Now that you have the world, What....

Often you hear from those in power that the world is unsafe. Let me be the first to tell you, they are correct. But how did it get that way? How did the “human” species evolve from taking care of their own clan to telling groups of people called countries which weapons they can have to defend themselves and which ones they can’t? Who elected those dictator countries Chief? That’s the point of this essay. No one, they took the role using violence and deceit and that’s why the world is not safe. It comes down to those who live on this planet with white skin have a tremendous cultural ego. They think they are the smartest, the bravest, and the one chosen by “god” to rule. If that weren’t true, then they surmise, they wouldn’t be in the position they are presently enjoying.

However that summation is woefully inaccurate. The bravest, hardly when they take undue advantage of the weakest people on the planet and can only adhere to the demands of those who truly where brave enough to acquire weapons without their permission. The smartest folk, hardly. After years of starting wars, deceit, and manipulation to acquire the resources for institutions to change the color of knowledge, they brought into their own propaganda of being the creator of all things good. That doesn’t make them the smartest, it makes them the most violent, the winners at making war on people with less weaponry, and as my one half of my ancestors said, speaking with folk tongue. As far as being chosen by god, I suppose if you create god, I’m sure he’ll chose you to lead. See during one to those “campaigns” of conquest, they took the African idea of “god” being Nature and made it human and of course, in their own cultural image.

Do you remember the song, “Now that you have love, what are you gonna do with it?” I ask the white skinned and their pretenders, now that you have pretty much acquired world domination, what are you gonna do with it? If history is the answer, more clandestine adventures against people of color, more deceit, and more expansion, politically, culturally, and economically because that’s all they know or care to know. After all, they think they are the smartest, the bravest, and the ones chosen by god and it’s not their fault that the world is unsafe; they are here to save it.
