Sun Tzu, which I have the audio book version of the Art of War, in general was speaking of military strategy. It can be applied to other things of course but you have to consider these terms first and foremost in order to understand his methodology.
So for example, Sun Tzu talks about different "grounds". These are different conditions where either you or your opponent have an advantage. If you have such an advantage because of the "ground" where you fight then you've pretty much already won the battle. This is what Sun Tzu is talking about, not a scenario which there is no actual confrontation and no soldiers on your side united against the enemy.
Because the reverse is also true.
What we call Babylon has already won militarily because of their "ground"... their positions as well as their instruments of warfare. You will not fight them on this "ground" because it would be suicide to do so. Therefore, they have won against us without fighting. That's the whole point of superior force.
Babylon has invested billions of dollars per year into its military. Therefore this is not the "ground" we can engage on.
By the same token...
If Babylon is using the MIND as "ground" and politics is their preferred method of using human capital as support for their policies... If you can't fight their politics then they have also and again won without having to fight you at all. And there is no argument that could be made that the resistance is winning on this or any other ground.
There is a half Jamaican half Indian Senator running for President in 2020 in Kamala Harris. Maybe you can't influence the republican Party or especially Trump. But the DNC has learned that it needs a coalition of black and brown people in order to get elected. As such there are high ranking congress people from minority communities.
If one person calls them its a blip on their radar. If an organization that donates to their campaigns calls them, that's not a blip. If you watch videos from Dr. Claude Anderson and read his book POWERNOMICS there is a strategy to win but you have to use leverage. The more leverage you have the more you can influence people that can influence people. And this can go all the way up to the top.
AOC is basically setting the Washington establishment on fire and they are forced to listen to her because of her popularity in simply representing her people with progressive ideas. The people want these ideas. That's how she got elected. And every government, whether free or ruled by a monarch or dictator... every one of them is afraid of "We the people" because they can always be overthrown. They try to use fear to keep that from happening.
It is that fear that makes people choose alternatives to fighting. They whisper in corners rather than a real public challenge. That fear "subdues the enemy without fighting".
Acts of kindness, with all due respect, do not so much as equal a blip on anyone's radar. Acts of kindness are performed by people of all races, religions, kindred, tongues, and orientations. There is nothing special when you do it verses when a republican does it and often their charities are bigger than ours.
This is not a battle between pure good and pure evil. Babylon is a lukewarm confusion. In other words, its a mixture of both good and evil. The good can always claim the good and shun the evil while the evil can always prey on the good and justify the evil. And much of the evil is caused by the scarcity of resources. It's easy to preach moral values when food is in your belly and your children's bellies. If you don't know where that food is going to come from then more likely it will come from drugs or guns. And there is a supply and demand market for evil that makes people forget the good.
Right now the opioid crisis is an epidemic in the US. The Rastaman could be a kind of universal medicine man, speaking for the earth, and opposing all unnatural drugs and reminding us where we came from and the moral values we should have. But I don't hear that voice.
But how could we possibly---
The reggae industry generates enough money that if a small portion of each sale went into one organization that used that money to push a platform like what I just mentioned, that would be powerful. But doing that wouldn't be selling out. It would be putting into practical application the teachings of Marcus Garvey, and a fighting spirit inspired by Haile Selassie. I don't have to remind you that Marcus Garvey sold shares in order to create economic power for black people. But if everything Babylon does, like having money, is avoided by Rastas, then Rastas will never have the power to do what Marcus Garvey was trying to do and black people will never have the power to truly oppose Babylon. Do regular black people not have the resources? Some do, but the point is that RastafarI has purer spirit and natural moral direction that honestly they lack. And you have to combine that spiritual power with the economic power with the knowledge as power and convert it into political power in order to actually beat the system.
But like I said... do we really want to beat the system? Or do we want to maintain the system so we always have something to be against?
