Since the beginning of civilization, those in power have successfully restricted the interest of the majority by regulating their values, by controlling resources through money, [and by] controlling the very processes that exist to challenge them.
Is it a conspiracy? Do such powerful men meet in dark rooms and work to figure out how to keep their power? Actually no, not as much as you might think.
You see, the hilarious thing about all of this is such a process of manipulation is actually self-generating, justified in a step-by-step manner with basic self-interest guiding the whole way.
You see, the real corruption is not occurring in backroom meetings or at the docks; the real power resides in how you, the public, actually perpetuate, condone, and support the very underlying systems that oppress you. —

Nostradamus was a white man’s prophet who predicated European supremacist logic
Because the pilgrims & conquistadors columns killed more innocent people than Hitler and Stalin
I guess the fortune teller skipped an Antichrist or two
Brother give this to the OG’s doing life with you and
Pray for the problems with the popes psychology so the Vatican will offer an apology,
for destroying the peoples liberation theology
Snatching the spirit of Jesus from people in poverty
Business decisions like keeping people in prisons but had the opposite effect incarcerating religion
That type of crooked politics imposed on a populous is obvious if you read the Northwood documents
Forget the compliments for what I recorded
And live for revolution instead of always dying for it
Remember a bullet can never stop me
My legions are led by the spirit Haile Selassie watch me
Even if I’m shot in the shakra I will prosper
Doppler effect bumping music out a helicopter
Tellin the Persians there comes the rasta
And tell them I came back as the son of the Ahura Mazda
Fish out the Philistine dagon from the shores of Gaza
And call Quetzalcoatl flying over La Raza
This is a message to the older gods I’ll sacrifice you all to the revolution like the Romanovs
Lost in the desert like the Hebrews of Israel
The blood clot system try to kill me like sickle cell
But I survived and alive to fight another day cocooned in a coma
I can still hear my mother pray
Sister crying out to god please let my brother stay

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the ‘half-empty or half-full’ question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, ‘How heavy is this glass of water?’ The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, ‘The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.’ She continued, ‘The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed — incapable of doing anything.’ Always remember to put the glass down. — Unknown (via thelittleyellowdiary)

my sadness is not
a cut for you to bandage
and it is not
a bruise for you to kiss
i am not waiting
for you to save me
i am hoping you will love me
while i rescue myself — this is what a hero looks like (w.k.)

The cells that form my lips
do not understand the words that I speak.
Yet they do it perfectly
and without any question.
