It’s Time for Real Change

Junious Ricardo Stanton



Many Westerners are coming to the inescapable conclusion their culture is creating a psychological malaise that is rapidly metastasizing throughout the society, stifling empathy, enthusiasm and any sense of meaning, purpose or real fulfillment in our lives. We find ourselves like laboratory mice or hamsters on the proverbial treadmill going nowhere fast, depleting our energy and finances with nothing to show for it but tons of planned obsolescence stuff and suffocating debt.

There was even a mindset propagated in the 80′s and 90′s that said the measure of one’s worth material possessions at life’s end. They said “greed is good” which fueled consumerism, materialism and a dog eat dog, winner take all mindset. If the measure of your being, your self-worth and success are based upon the amount of gizmos and gadgets you have, what happens if you lose them, they become obsolete or you can no longer afford them?

Wealth inequality, homelessness, depression and despair hang over this country like a thick fog while many are succumbing to various addictions as a way of numbing their misery and frustration. Opiate prescriptions are at an all time high in America and the suicide rate is the highest it has been in thirty years!

Many thinkers, philosophers and reformers have warned that America is about to plummet into a societal abyss of depravity. Social engineering is real, social programming and mind control is real. The US government has been working on them for decades. Do some research on the CIA’s MK ULTRA, Operation MONARCH and other mind control programs and then look into what is going on at the Pentagon at its Department of Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). It will blow your mind. Then ask yourself what is the impact of five conglomerates controlling almost everything we see on TV, the movies, streaming, books, magazines and newspapers? Is this representative of free and open markets or is it more in line with monopoly consolidation?

American history is fraught with moral contradictions, blatant discrepancies between their professed creed and their actual deeds. How do you talk about “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness” while aggressively engaged in policies and programs of genocide, extermination, slavery, dehumanization and ecocide?

The continuing consequences of the sins of the “founding fathers” are still being visited upon successive generations as the ruling class attempts to keep their criminogenic culture (a system, situation or place causing or likely to cause criminal behavior) intact and expanding its reach on a global level.

The ruling class and their minions have more weapons at its disposal today than ever before. Today they have a pervasive technological network that manufactures a reality that dumb us down, disorients and discombobulates us, they poison us with GMO Frankenfoods, pump us with pharmaceutical and illicit drugs to numb our minds and push us towards stultifying addiction.

All this is designed to discourage resistance to their nefarious agenda. As a result America faces a psycho-spiritual crisis of enormous proportions. We have no real strategies to save ourselves other than foolishly coupling our hopes to a Democratic Party that has sold us out time and again. Neither political party has our best interests at heart we have to realize this and act accordingly.

What can we do to improve ourselves and our situation? We have to build values producing institutions: create and support our own schools, develop our own pedagogical theories and practices, expand economic networks and capital formation groups. Most importantly we must formulate a cosmology to replace the decadent Western values of selfish alienation, materialism, war and hedonism.

We can do this. We already have the model, traditional African values and cosmology. We already have the concepts, models and action of Sankofa, going back to retrieve that which is good, bringing it forward and adapting it to present realities. We were the first humans to do all this. We have done it many times in the past in our history; we can begin to create a brighter future for ourselves and our children.
