The political system of America the Babylon is corrupt to the core and is the instrument of the enslavement of the bodies and minds of our brethren and sistren. We RastafarI abhor it and most do not participate in dignifying, through participation, the notion of a "democracy" which is actually just a farce.
With no exceptions, we must recall that His Majesty is the incarnation of God in human form, but nevertheless he still dealt with a fallen world. What His Majesty did or didn't try to do must always be considered and viewed in the context that He is the King of Kings, the Lord or Lords, the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, and hence possesses a wisdom and privilege to act in ways which far exceed those of ordinary men.
As RastafarI, our chosen form of governance is a monarchy led by our benevolent Father of Creation. When you stop to think about it there is nothing inherently good or righteous about the notion of democracy; we are simply inculcated with a brainwashing that 'democracy is the best from of governance' from our earliest youth. In practice however this is not the case. By far the best form of governance is the monarchy ruled over by our Benevolent Father, JAH RastafarI.
Refusal to participate in an inherently corrupt, deceptive and wicked system is certainly one's democratic choice and it is the choice of many (but not all) RastafarI.
One Truth Idureth: One cannot possibly hope to remedy the horrific atrocities and injustices of the Babylon System through the institutions, working and machinations of that very same system. To believe so and enter into such an initiative is utter folly.
"It takes a revolution to make a solution
Too much confusion, so much frustration, eh
I don't want to live in the park
Can't trust no shadows after dark
So, my friend, I wish that you could see
Like a bird in the tree, the prisoners must be free, yeah
Never make a politician grant you a favour
They will always want to control you forever"
-Bob Marley & the Wailers
SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF JAH AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED.
