‘CONSCIOUS’


 

“Clearly, other people in this business, whether it be consumers or fans, or more importantly, the labels or the media, have the need to label me and package me as a conscious artist…The conscious rapper label correctly applies to me, because I am a conscious rapper…But this industry has demonized the term ‘consciousness,’ and has demonized the idea of positive message and music that can move people in a different direction other than debauchery,” he said.

PSEUDO CAPITALISTA


PSEUDO CAPITALISTA

I believe the UAE is a grand example of why capitalism needs to slow its role when trying to convince the world it should be ‘unfettered’ – let me rephrase that. I believe blah blah blah is an example of why we need to distinguish between capitalism and pseudo-capitalism.

I decided to reword it once I went through it all one more time before posting it. I love capitalism. Well, I love truth, and I am not going to hold the truth hostage to my stupid opinion – so instead of devoting my energy to touting something that might be wrong, fundamentalistic, or incomplete, I am going to devote my energy to trying to distinguish between what I think is right, and what I think is wrong, and eventually leaving it up to you to decide. I mean, I am definitely putting in my two cents – I am human after all.

Among the pictures in the below link – one especially caught my eye – the caption that is. Caption reads: Tea Party would not be pleased. Why?

89% of Dubai is made of immigrants – yes the west’s favorite scapegoat when venerating the wonders of capitalism. 71% of those immigrants are Asian – probably illegally there – exploited under inhuman work conditions – these guys are slaves people…

You think these immigrants have any human rights guarantees?

You see, I think the problem is that people here in the West like to worship a pseudo-capitalism that – in a more professional, perhaps academic, setting – would likely be labeled anarcho-capitalism, where even the most basic tenets of capitalism and individual rights are ignored for the sake of serving some arbitrary, usually tyrannical, goal, like dominating an entire region on earth in the Middle East. And this pseudo-capitalism is to these anarcho-capitalist libertarians what chairman Mao might have been to the ‘commies’.

Remember folks, God came before capitalism – believe it or not.

But here in the West any criticism of capitalism is immediately assumed to be un-american, communistic, or atheistic – none of which I think is accurate – in fact the only thing un-american is the absence of free thought, discourse and debate on pressing issues such as these – ones that affect Americans and non-Americans alike.

Instead of hurling labels like socialist and islamist around – let’s carefully dissect the accusations so that we may distinguish between true and frue.

Julius al-Assad


 

When Brutus freed the Romans from Caesar’s absolute rule – he was hailed as a force of liberation – thousands of years later, however, it seems he is regarded with disdain – a traitor who ushered the end of rome, a jealous and devious shadow of Caesar. And so, in today’s world, as millions of westerners rush to their social media outlets to bring light to the protests and uprisings sweeping all these foreign countries, demanding ‘freedom’ from ‘dictatorial rule’, I am forced to ask: Are the uprisings forces of liberation, or are they jealous traitors looking for their chance at glory?
