Darfur & the Continued Exploitation of Africa


Reminds me of a debate I had about the causes of Darfur crisis. It’s not radical Islam. That is not a rational argument. The basis of every injustice is a financial gain; as we live in a world of scarcity and desirous human nature. That being said, it is important to highlight the role of colonialism, imperialism, and uniquely in this case, the culpability of Chinese expansionism in the spurring of this crisis. It is important to understand that as with most underdeveloped countries, the cause is not ‘futility’ or ‘inferiority’ but rather arbitrary military dominance by imperial forces bent on socio-economic exploitation.

There are many economic resources in Africa. Besides the West’s historic atrocity of the transatlantic trade lies the more modern manifestation of ‘slavery’ and exploitation: blood diamonds; minerals; oil.

The dogma of imperialism and its religious and ideologically fanatical constituents/mercenaries work against the general welfare. Africa, like Palestine, South America, east Europe and Southeast Asia, has suffered immensely from imperialism. Today we are only witnessing the earliest consequences.

On Democratic Socialism & Hip-Hop’s Place in America Today


Bulworth

Recent tension between hip-hop artists Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea inspired me to address the issue, and how the undertones resonate loudly in America, with associations to systems of cultural repression such as racism, jim crow, the prison-industrial complex, corporate hoarding and finally US foreign policy; and ultimately how all of these issues are in actuality the products of one giant injustice; institutionalized discrimination.

Liberty and individualism are often associated with the American conservative model of capitalism but in reality this model more closely resembles theocratic-nepotism. True free markets, competition and prosperity are more closely associated with genuine democracy and social redistribution of resources in order to correct historical injustices and imbalances as well as to assure that the basic needs of individuals are met as they seek to establish a method for sustenance by relying on themselves.

The reality is that America’s brand of capitalism, especially as it has unfolded in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, is less capitalism-based and more authoritarian; more Randian, if anything.

The system which disenfranchised African-Americans is responsible for propping up images like Iggy. That system I refer to is a cult-like religion of people who believe in a disney-esque fairy tale-like America where innocence remains and hypocrisy is rampant.

That’s the point. Racism guised. Zionism hidden. Anarcho-capitalism fully realized.

The selling of a false American Dream which is essentially conformity to a culture of bigotry.

The brainwashing of American children into following the Biebers and Iggys so as to suppress independent thinking.

And the questioning of US decency.

American is the crown jewel of self-idolatry and pseudo-freedom. It is the center-piece of vanity and pretentious ownership of earth.

You don’t have to preach to us about the doctrine of competition of free market that isn’t our problem.

We compete all day the problem is your false portrayal of reality and the hoarding of earths resources under the banner of Americanism.

The world is victim so a false sense of entitlement to consumer culture.

This will end.
