.(Part 5 of 9) How can the education of societies be the key to upward mobility?
Upward into what?
Aren't the people educated by this same education the same ones who keep killing we and setting their killers free and blaming our murders on us based on their socio-psychopathy? Aren't the best and the brightest products of their education the same ones keeping up and supporting genderism and racism globally?
Based on the number of simultaneous wars taking place against every aspect of a person's being, the times we've been living in for the past several thousand years are clearly the most heinous period of human existence. This steady decline has been taking place as the number of people getting educated by societies has steadily risen. Could this be cause and effect?
Quality of life, upward mobility and the higher spiritual self go hand in hand in hand.
See, “Progress Report On Most Nations, When A FIX Is Not Making Progress, UC #577 .”
So where then is this upward mobility provided by the education of societies?
Upward into what?
Formal education, as defined by Europeans and other groups, as a means of upward mobility for anyone seeking to be their optimal best, is an inherently false notion.
The formal education of societies is suboptimal and was appropriate for the times, just like their candy bar religions.
It was appropriate when we didn't know better. It is now way past the time for all people to make that change back to the education of their African roots.
It is no longer enough to Africanize, Blackify or soul season the education of societies to make it palatable and then consider it damn good eating.*
The integration of Africans into European schools and curriculum was and is part of the ongoing attempts to gentrify African culture out of the planet. The same culture that civilized us in the first place.
So how is it we can erase components of civilization such as female leadership and Eco-sensible spiritual traditions that maintains a respectful kinship with nature, and yet we still consider that kind of education a means of upward mobility?
Upward into what?
When Africans in America moved into “better” neighborhoods, they moved out of the last vestiges of their cultural incubator and into a free for all culture of worse values. We traded in being young, gifted, black and proud in order to be unlike ourselves, thus we became educated agents against ourselves and the communal group we left behind. This is of no surprise. To think the neighborhood of those who hate you is better than yours is a self-indictment of self-esteem. Why? Because the information that provided knowledge of self was missing in far too many of us. Yet there were many who didn't forget and many of them were constantly attacked, killed and imprisoned, same as today.
Buying in to the education of the lower-self and then carrying out what we've learned in the same manner as those we learned it from is the same as selling out our family communal group.
Of course, the loss of African consciousness and the loss of conscience of human decency must lead to things falling apart due to improper responses to externally-inflicted and self-inflicted ills.
In addition to little or no Sankofa, the loss of communal living as an extended family in neighborhoods has left us vulnerable to the always active external forces, which at least in times past, could be guarded against and minimized within the community; however, what protection is there when those same external ideologies are educated into us and internalized and then weaken us from the inside of our communities, especially among mothers and fathers who are no longer “together” but still have a child to raise together. If we liked each other enough for the sake of sex can't we at least like each other enough for the sake of the child – or at least fake it until the child makes it?
The hardening of the head always comes at the expense of the softening of the butt – the butt of our descendents
The education most of us are getting is supposed to be moving us into a more civil way of thinking yet barbarism in a multitude of legally-sanctioned ways (pre-crime, during the crime and post-crime) continues to rise.
You say what!? Societal education is the key to upward mobility?
Upward into what?
The answers becomes clear when we return to thinking collectively globally lovingly rather than individually locally selfishly.
Mo' money, Mo' misery is the price we pay to achieve and succeed financially momentarily. Certainly critical thinking has failed us logically. because we think getting some understanding intellectually makes it okay to not mature spiritually....and because we think money and popularity and position prestige, gives us every right to disregard our main responsibilities to our communal family, which includes our Ancestors and the Creator who reminds us constantly via the higher spiritual nature within, what is and what isn't upward mobility.
*Changing the color of Yeshua (Jesus), back to the Black-skinned person he was, but keeping everything else the same is the same as changing the color of the pill and expecting the poison to suddenly do us some good.
"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)
“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”
