What IS Freedom? What does it mean to be free? What is the objective of the so-called 'freedom struggle'?
Because except that we have a clearly defined, comprehensive and tangible OBJECTIVE in the midst of all this, we will continue to allow the adversary to define our objectives for us and lead us along the path that he prefers for us.
That is to say, that unless we understand collectively what exactly our desired destination is, the african-american will continiuosly be fooled into thinking that he is 'progressing' in this land. To progress is simply to move further along the path, and closer to the destination. Theyve kept on telling us that weve been progressing more and more as time goes by but it seems to ME as if things are getting WORSE...so if we are truly 'progressing' here in america i would have to pose the question 'To where?'
The man is gone the woman is gone the children are gone the neighborhood is gone the air is gone the food is gone the water is gone...LOVE for one another is gone, respect for the elders is gone trust in your leadership is gone....almost EVERYTHING has been completely destroyed in the midst of the black community. Things seem to have been getting progressively WORSE for our people since we have arrived in this land, yet somehow they have convinced our people that its all getting better by DEFINING these concepts of 'freedom' 'progress' and 'liberation' for us.
So before we get into all the complicated discussions about revolutionary warfare and socio-political guerilla tactics n whatnot, it is of a NECESSITY that we as a people seize the Power to Define our objectives.
So the question remains; what is freedom? what are you fighting for? what would you define as progress? what is your conceptualization of redemption, or deliverance from this evil?
