MANDELA: "INFOWARS" ARE PIG IGNORANT.
I will say what needs to be said, as tactfully as I can, because we are talking about real people's lives.
Where were we ?: Steve Biko from the Non Violent Black Consciousness Movement was - Banned - and - Murdered.
I do think that Infowars put out a lot of information that is useful to know, and I think that Paul Watson writes knowledgeable articles and Alex Jones has a healthy passion for life.
However, the Infowars article called "Nelson Mandela Love Fest Ignores Dark Side of Legacy" is NOT constructive criticism.
It is pig ignorant because it has more than a gaping big hole itself, in terms of why the ANC and BCM really failed, which it is not okay to leave out, when there is still a great urgency around the world to primarily save lives, first.
The gaping hole is that the ANC failed because like Steve Biko's Black Consciousness Movement who were non-violent, both were originally - banned - simply because by being peacefully correct, they would ultimately succeed, if sufficient numbers of people from around the world got on board.
It was only after the ban that the ANC incorrectly chose to have an armed wing and innocent civilians died, while Steve Biko's Black Consciousness Movement that came later, did not have an armed wing.
So really we are all, as decent and civilized members of the global community of people, responsible for the fact that - sufficient - numbers of people did not get on board to help the ANC when they were banned, and before they had an armed wing, and then later, the Black Consciousness Movement who never had an armed wing.
Please do not forget that Steve Biko, the truly gifted leader of BCM was brutally murdered in police custody, and the leadership decimated, because the BCM and affiliated groups were proving through their non-violence to be a bigger challenge than the ANC.
It was the fact that people did not address the fact of the bans that led to what is still failure today.
I was once asked on the witness stand by the police's lawyer, why I joined Brian Haw's Parliament Square Peace Campaign.
I said that (what was nevertheless a life changing decision) was a simple one.
I saw that what Brian was doing was absolutely right, and that he needed help( in doing what still needs to be done, because the point always was that the people were capable of putting enough pressure on the government to stop the illegal wars and bring those responsible to account).
So I learnt quite literally by many a "trial" and error, what I could do to help and what I needed to do to help, in what were increasingly difficult circumstances, where our campaign is banned and legislated against, all the time.
Brian never actually told me what to do.
In fact Brian was right in knowing, that it was important for people to take the time to learn for themselves, what they could do to help, to add to what was already being done.
And that is not to say that when you found yourself up against it, and so on, that Brian did not offer sound advice from having had the benefit of his own years of experience.
The only people we never really had any time for, were the few idiots who thought we needed to sell an idea to someone.
After all, we were never a department store trying to sell a product.
It was obvious that we wanted to save people's lives and if you needed to be sold on that, then you were pretty fucked up anyway.
The important point is this.
When - peaceful - people are targeted by being specifically banned or legislated against, simply because they are saying you can peacefully change the world, it is important that people recognise that what those peaceful people are - saying - and - doing - is right.
The State only ban or legislate against a peaceful group, because that peaceful group will succeed.
So instead of people endlessly trying to re-invent the wheel too much, for whatever reason, or trying to complicate anything, I do argue that people should simply focus on trying to help those peaceful people who are banned and/or legislated against, to get to where all decent and civilized people must want to go, anyway.
It is after all, only about putting sufficient numbers of people out there to support each other, to save lives first, as fast as we can.
There is no great mystery, intellectual theory, and nor should there be ideological competition.
We all know what is a now pretty much a global criminal state, when we see it.
It is common-sense that the fraudulent use of law, leads to the economic fraud that leads to indiscriminate state murder.
If you choose to look, it was Che Guevara and the incredible Steve Biko who both understood that whatever you like to call, what should be the "management" of land by the global community of people (instead of the global community of big business who they both recognised go by many names) land re-distribution really is the key to economic reform.
Equality in land rights, is the starting point in terms of equality of opportunity for all.
However, it is actually natural Justice, that people will not get the "economic reform" that many want until sufficient numbers of people can first save as many lives as possible, of others.
This does actually mean helping peaceful people who are banned or legislated against, because like it or not those of us who have been banned or legislated against, had that happen because what we are doing is right.
One million people on the streets of London for one week would most likely have stopped the illegal wars and saved millions of lives, while also kick starting a legal challenge to bring around further economic reform.
In the absence of the many, you don't wait around. You continue, with what you can do.
