BLACK HISTORY: AGAINST THE SUM OF ALL RESISTANCE

dead end

A dead end lies before us. It is being shown to us by the light of our history. When we study not only the structural characteristics of the institution of slavery but also the intestinal fortitude of millions of individual Africans, that history highlights for us what was for them the reason for their survival.  It also implies what will cause us to fail.

 

It is common knowledge that millions of slaves endured pain of every conceivable kind. They endured the pains of hunger, thirst, beatings, whippings, rape, the murder of kinfolk and neighbors, extreme cold, extreme heat, disease, humiliation, intellectual deprivation, high infant and maternal mortality rates, physical mutilation, forced incest, child sexual abuse, and lives lived under constant authoritarian repression.  They did so for hundreds of years.

 

But they endured. They endured because individually and collectively their will to live was greater than the sum of all resistance to them. For every act to suffocate their humanity their will to take in yet another breath of life prevailed.  In that breath which filled their lungs they exhaled into the world a universal movement that turned history in a new direction.

 

If there is an argument for a morality not born of the flesh but of the spirit, one which springs forth from what in a human being is soul alone, then it must be expressed as the greater ‘ will to live’ against the lesser ‘sum of all resistance’ to it. That being true then it must also be true that African people in America under a system of total repression were not only a moral people but they were also the major moral force shaping United States history for the 100 years following the civil war.   

 

Their ‘will to live’ has left a wide trail in its wake. That trail was paved by the descendants of slaves. They were those generations of people constituting millions upon millions of souls who in word and in deed shouted out to the world that ‘We Shall Over Come!’ And in their train along the span of that trail followed Asians, Latinos, Women, and all others who were raised from the dead by the cry of African people ‘Rise Lazarus!’ live and walk to freedom with us here in these United States.   

 

No rational person would argue that today we are on a moral and social upswing. Rather now, and in the light of our past, our future prospects as a people and as individual citizens are uncertain.  Serious questions should now be asked by each and every one of us. We should ask ourselves whether or not the scale of our moral measure has tipped against us? Is it now the case that our ‘will to live is outweighed by the sum of all resistance to it? 

 

The social facts in support of that proposition are frightening and are rubbed in our faces daily. Our collective moral sentiments have slid down a steep slope. And if those facts are true then what will become of us? What will become of us if we do not reinvigorate the intestinal fortitude our ancestors had?  If we agree that they are our moral frame of reference, it begs the question: are we now an immoral people?

 

Our behavior and words are moral forces. They are no different than fire for both our behaviors and words are energies, too.  They can cause combustion.  They are forces that move about and impact things and people around them. They have weight and can cause explosions. They can shatter things and people. They can cause implosions by destroying people psychologically. These forces move at a rate of speed like all things. They gather momentum and they can also accelerate when combined with other behaviors. For those reasons we are now headed to a point in our history when the light of our past shall be overcome by the darkness of an undetermined and uncertain future.

 

We are approaching a dead end and we are accelerating and gathering momentum along the way.  It is the kind of challenge like no other we have ever faced. For, it has been constructed by our own hands not by the hands of others and it stands before us within us.  Now, we are the sum of all resistance to ourselves. Now we behave as though we do not want to live. We do not comprehend that what we face cannot be overcome by colliding with it. We must stop before we collide with it.

 

That wide trail which was blazed by so many of our ancestors has now become a narrow beaten path along which we walk.  And if we look back over our shoulders we will see that no longer do others follow us. For we are no longer moral leaders; we no longer possess the high ground.  

 

Asians, Latinos, women, and others have parted ways and gone on to enjoy the fruits of their labor. We are now alone; we no longer cry out ‘Rise Lazarus!” rather we whine aloud with arms outstretched and with open palms.  What we are on my dear people is a death march. It may be that our time in the United States is coming to its end. For it is a social fact that we have hit rock bottom.  Denial of that fact will avail us nothing for ‘pride goeth before a fall’.

 

If there is hope then it must be hope in God and a visceral ‘will to live’. It must be the ‘will to live’ which our forebears had in such abundance that they could share it with the entire world. It must be that same intestinal fortitude which drove our people to do all that they could do to make a place for themselves and us in these United States against the sum of all resistance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome To EarthColony.Net: YOUR TIME HAS RUN OUT, by Dr. Steven Nur Ahmed

On March 11, 2011 a 9.0 magnitude earth quake hit Tohoku, Japan.  It was followed by a Tsunami.  The Tsunami was 14 meters (32 feet) high.  The death toll was 15,883 persons plus 2,651 missing persons.

The earth quake was related to a great under ocean trench in the Pacific.  That trench is a dividing line between continents.  At the bottom of the trench there is a process which is called subduction.

japan trench article

Subduction is a process whereby the sea floor slides down beneath the mantle and then into the molten outer core of the earth carrying everything down and under with it to be recycled. This process spans millions of years.  It is part of the mechanical movements of tectonic plates on which the continents float about.

Earth quakes are the effect of the friction caused by the oppositional movement and collision of tectonic plates and the great cracks running along the crust and mantle of the earth. The Pacific Rim is called the ‘Ring of Fire’ because of the high probability of volcanic and earth quake activity along it at all times.  Japan is a set of islands situated along the Ring of Fire.

Ironically, the government of Japan allowed a company called TEPCO and GE (General Electric) to build a nuclear power facility at Fukushima Daiichi.  This, Japan allowed, even though it is the only nation whose people have suffered a direct explosion and the radioactive collateral effects of atomic bombs being dropped on them during World War II.

 

The earth quake and tsunami caused the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to go into melt down.  As a consequence since 2011 radioactive water from the reactors have been spilling into the air and ocean.  The amount of radioactive water spilling into the ocean has been measured at about 300 tons per day.  The amount spewing into the air has been measured at over 200 on the radioactive scale.

 

Through both of these avenues dangerous levels of cesium-137, Iodine-131, and Strontium-90 are getting into the food chain.  Over time, the amount of radioactive material will increase in both the ocean and air. Those radioactive materials damage human bones, muscles, and thyroids. Medical experts have reported a 40% increase in damaged thyroids among the children of Fukushima.

 

Cancer rates are up among the Japanese people who were exposed to the radioactive fallout, too.  I leave it to you to do further research on that problem.  I want to address a bigger problem which will happen and for which you and the world are not prepared and cannot prepare to handle.

Very soon there will be another earth quake at or above a 7.0 magnitude near Tohoku, Japan.  It will cause the nuclear rods in the reactors at the Fukushima nuclear power plant to touch.  That will then trigger a nuclear reaction called fission.  It will cause a global crisis the likes of which no life on this planet has ever faced.  It will mark the end of mammalian (human) life on this planet.  Let me explain why.

 the water

First let’s analyze what will happen in the ocean.  See the picture above? The amount of radiation leakage into the ocean off the coast of Japan will increase by multiples of greater than 10.  It will cause an already radioactively contaminated area around Japan to spread throughout the Pacific Ocean.

 

The first animals to die en mass will be the phytoplankton.  Since microscopic animals called phytoplankton are the base of the ocean food chain, a domino effect will be triggered up the food chain causing food shortage and starvation of small and then large species including whales.  Dead sea life will wash ashore by the trillions causing a stench that will drift inland hundreds of miles.

 

Then things begin to get even worse.  The radioactive contamination will slowly spread to every ocean and sea in the world.  Dead zones will spread and eventually engulf the world’s oceans and seas.  The domino effect eventually hits human populations because the extinction of sea life eliminates a vital source of protein for human beings and birds.  People will panic out of fear.  Then people will begin to die by the millions.  The old, those impaired and/or ill, and babies will die first, then those technologically undeveloped or unskilled.  Lastly, Black people, and those without weapons for self defense will die or be killed. People will commit suicide by the millions. Insanity will be the new norm.

 

Because of the contaminated ocean water billions of people will begin to migrate inland. Populations will collide and be crushed together.  Competition and the ensuing conflict between nations and individuals over land, animals, and crops will increase thus causing more millions of human deaths at the hands of other humans.  But the horror will increase yet again as the human predicament will then take a turn for the worse.

 

There will be a massive problem of human waste. Contaminated dead animal and human bodies will lay unburied everywhere along with human feces and will cause the spread of disease.  Everywhere, swarms of flies as thick as clouds will engulf whole towns. People will eat dogs and dogs and insects will prey upon people.  And this shall not be the worst of our problems.

HYDROLOGIC

Drinking water which for so long we have taken for granted will diminish.  The global hydrologic system is well known.  Due to heat, water evaporates from the oceans and seas leaving its salt content in the ocean.  The vapor rising into the air is condensed and form clouds.  Those clouds are pushed by the currents of wind. They are then affected by temperature thus causing snow, rain, or hail to fall to the ground.

 

That fallen water is our only source of fresh water.  However, because of radioactive contamination continually leaking out of the nuclear reactors the fresh water will become contaminated also.  Within a few months, plants, insects, and mammals will begin to die from dehydration and or radioactive poisoning. The entire base of the human food chain will be destroyed. The fighting and killing between nations will increase geometrically as governments become dysfunctional or completely collapse.

GLOBAL AQUIFERS

 aquifers

Underground aquifers which have built up over millions of years will then become the prize possession of ruthless gang lords. They are situated more on some continents than on others. That will push their value up. You can see that the big fight will be in Africa. The gangs alone will possess the drilling equipment now owned by the oil companies to access underground water and they will possess unimaginably destructive weapons to control the aquifers.  There will be no more governments.

RIVERS OF AIR

Those humans who survive will live around underground aquifers eating what packaged foods remain until it, too, is all depleted.  They will live in caves to avoid radioactively contaminated air, dust, and rain.  But they must breathe air and they will.  And so, eventually horrific cancers will eat away at their bodies.  There will be no medical infrastructure, nor medical experts to give aid, nor morphine to relieve their pain.

After 265 million years of evolutionary twists, turns, and interventions, in a last rite of savagery those last survivors will resort to cannibalism.  Finally, the last human being will eat the other last human being in a metaphorical twist on the very problem which confronts us today. That problem is the unsolvable problem of human nature; those murdering beasts who cannot stop killing to avoid killing themselves.

 

We were never the best that we thought ourselves to be, but we were the very worst that we so artfully covered over in the guise of civil life. So from space this old planet will look inviting. It will cast itself earthen brown and blue with fluffy white clouds, but it will be a dead planet for millions if not a billion years.  And if there are any survivors those survivors will be insects which evolve and perhaps play the game again but perhaps making better choices.

And what might you ask of the zoo keepers?  Ahhh, they will continue to watch and again place their bets.  For whatever intelligence does evolve to rise up from among the bugs will in time discover the same physics to play with again.
