As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following captioned photo here, being shared by the page, “Ms. Lauryn Hill,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Consumerism is a track coming out on the eve of Ms. Hill’s release. She wanted to get this music out while she was incarcerated, as it is a product of the space she was in while she was going through some of the challenges she has been faced with recently.
Available now on iTunes: http://bit.ly/MLH_C
“Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side. Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I’m not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn’t imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking it’s level.”
– Ms. Lauryn Hill

My Commentary: New song from Ms. Hill!

I Never Hear the Word “Escape” Without a Quicker Blood…

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

The Right to Ignore the State:
https://www.libertarianism.org/publications/essays/right-ignore-state

(Herbert SpencerThe Right to Voluntary Outlawry: As a corollary to the proposition that all institutions must be subordinated to the law of equal freedom, we cannot choose but admit the right of the citizen to adopt a condition of voluntary outlawry. If every man has freedom to do all that he wills, provided he infringes not the equal freedom of any other man, then he is free to drop connection with the state — to relinquish its protection, and to refuse paying toward its support. It is self-evident that in so behaving he in no way trenches upon the liberty of others; for his position is a passive one; and whilst passive he cannot become an aggressor.

My Commentary: “I never hear the word ‘escape’
Without a quicker blood
A sudden expectation
A flying attitude!” – Emily Dickinson

Thomas Paine, the Liberty-Lover!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed,  I discovered the following status here, posted by the page, “Thomas Paine,” and originally posted it to my own wall…

Thomas Paine’s FB Page: “Thomas Paine needs no monument made by hands; he has erected a monument in the hearts of all lovers of liberty.” President Andrew Jackson

My Commentary: This TRUE “Founder” wrote “Common Sense” (the inspiration for the “Declaration of Independence”), is considered the “Father of the American Revolution,” argued for the EQUAL rights of WOMEN, and was a SLAVERY ABOLITIONIST! Check into Paine, and you will NEVER AGAIN allow a single immoral individual to tell you that you can’t SH!T ALL OVER the memory and reputation of the other so-called “Founding Fathers” for their disgusting white supremacism, male chauvinism, and slave ownership! NEVER ACCEPT the cowardly, illogical, disingenuous and collectivist argument that you are looking at the despicable deeds of these revolution-hijackers through a “lofty,” “modern day understanding” of what actually ALWAYS HAS BEEN, and ALWAYS WILL BE RIGHT! Any sheep that would say such a thing only seeks to reduce their own cognitive dissonance at the expense of YOUR SOUL – bidding for your silence, just as those of their ilk ALSO did BACK in the days of Paine, TOO!
