Let’s Talk Revolution

Standard

http://link%20below Be the change you want to see–pick up where he left off!

Jefferson“A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say, “This is not just.” It will look at our alliance with the landed gentry of South America and say, “This is not just.” The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just.

A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, “This way of settling differences is not just.” This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love. A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Remove Your Arrogance & Meditate on Truth

Standard

Great day to all! Today’s Soul Food is a reminder to remember Dr. King and what he stood for (anti war, anti violence, anti poverty, anti discrimination..anti-everything not of God’s/universal law):

“Don’t let anyone make you think that God chose America as His divine, Messianic force to be…God has a way of standing before the nations with judgment & it seems that I can hear God saying to America, ‘YOU’RE TOO ARROGANT!! If you don’t change your ways I will rise up and break the backbone of your power and I’ll place it in the hands of a nation that doesn’t even know my name! BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!’ -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 1967
