VOTING FOR YOUR COMMUNITY SALVATION, while failing to erect the accompanying GOVERNANCE and INSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY measures to keep the EMBEDDED CONFIDENCE MEN from keeping you on a CYCLICAL STRUGGLE, by VOTING is more responsible make making the "American Dream" an unattainable DREAM, Ms Hall, than anything that you expressed concern about in your video clip made to prompt grieving people to move "Forward" to the voting booth to "Rinse and Repeat".
I hear nothing in your video that expresses any hint of your demand for "RETURN ON INVESTMENT" based upon what you and your propaganda organization has compelled people to invest their hopes into.
I have stated several times in the past -
If you do not bring your own "management tools" to an argument with a Progressive-Fundamentalist - you will lose the debate as you are forced to argue on THEIR terms.
Their terms always involve an ever shifting goal post.
I had the same reaction to the arguments from MSNBC's Tamron Hall as I did when I recently heard Tavis Smiley and Prof Cornel West pushing their book:
The present condition of "Income Inequality" is an issue that "conscious progressives" OWN as an indictment against those who have failed to live up to America's creed.
For me this is not a "Social Justice" debate. This is a question of their competency to run the "Human Resource Development Institutions" that are "closest to home", the one's that the people have direct access to.
The development aspects of these institutions have been transformed into vessels for political conquest and ideologically based social engineering. (ie: the government school system as a jobs program or an outlet for their brand of sex education) When there is a conflict between the quality of the core services and their ideologically based transformation of these centers - their ideology wins as they simply SHIFT THE GOAL POSTS outside of the "Mission Accomplished Zone" making note of how their enemy has more funds than they do.
One of the first posts that I created when I started this blog was an affirmation of the historical and legal function of the city.
While the states continue to have the constitutional mandated requirements to deliver functions such as education (this appears in the constitutions of most states. It does not appear in the US constitution), when a city and/or a school system is created it petitions the state for a charter, allowing it to collect local taxes with the goal of providing these state constituted services via a local franchise.
So many of the "income inequality" and "social justice" arguments are based on the demotion of the RESPONSIBILITIES that these local chartered entities had assumed via their creation.
The debate around Detroit, for example, is that "OUR elected officials that YOU chose are being pushed out of office (just like THEY did in South Carolina as 'Black Codes' were being rolled out) and WE must stand together to fight this suppression of our Voting Rights that the State Republicans and Wall Street Bankers want to execute against us Progressive Black folks who see their tricks.".
In the above hypothetical that is real - the Civil Rights Pharisees that came to town were sure that they could convince the masses that the threat to their local elected power was the issue, rather than it being one of the STATE, exerting its CONSTITUTIONAL MANDATES that were franchised to the local entities, applying regulation to those franchises that have FAILED THE PEOPLE in a basic way.
In Black Progressive Fundamentalist analytical discourse we often hear attacks on FEDERALISM, as the means by which Black people were allowed to be enslaved and attacked at the hands of the local powers, while the nation looked the other way as these serial lynchings of our interests.
For today's Embedded Confidence Man who seeks power at your expense and ultimately impunity at his incompetence in developing our people, their attacks on FEDERALISM are important because they want to infuse a new consciousness upon you.
They want "NATIONALIZED SOCIAL JUSTICE".
With "Nationalized Social Justice" - those local seats of power have no incumbent requirement to:
- Competently execute their duties in support of the development of the people - upon failure they can blame the state or federal government for failing to note the regional gaps, failing to MAKE EQUALITY
- Responsibly manage and grow the local tax base as the primary funding source - per their agreement upon receiving their state charter
- Compel the local people to promote and TERMINATE leadership based on their EFFECTIVE RESULTS, instead those who can "lead the struggle" in demand for more external funding resources are seen as most effective
I have just constructed the roots of why Hall/Smiley/West and other Progressive-Fundamentalists are allowed to promote the present growth in INCOME INEQUALITY while never stopping to identify their own complicity as "their side" took over an increasing amount of formerly productive landscape via political attrition only to erect a scaffolding of policies that ultimately destroyed the "economic goose that laid the golden egg".
While they all are quite comfortable at documenting the CORPORATE GREED that trigger a mass pullout from these cities that had been built up as industry expressed demands for individuals that had "their labor and skills for sale", they can't bring themselves to assign the character of GREED to their side which ran up the cost of production. In their view all of their regulations, pay increases, benefit packages were SOUND AND JUST, the resistance to it was oppressive and intransigent.
We now have enough information to see that the primary victim in this entire scheme were the people that they now refer to as THE LEAST OF THESE.
These are the very same people that they now seek to lead in a brand new struggle - they have not received a sufficient share of the income growth.
The more accurate analysis of their fate is that THE ARE LESS CONNECTED TO AN ECONOMIC SYSTEM THAT WOULD ALLOW THEIR LABOR AND SKILLS INPUT to be translated into an increased command for COMPENSATION.
Those who spout "Income Inequality" are loathed to discuss their policy role in that disconnection, as we go from this spot indictment to a more historically based analysis of the truth.
The primary truth is that NONE OF THEM GOT FIRED as they presided over the decline.
Income Inequality Is Never A Subject Of Debate In Political Campaigns WITHIN "Mission Accomplished Zones"
Listen to the campaign rhetoric against political operatives running for local elected seats in large cities like Philadelphia, Detroit and Chicago. When the favorable progressive is vying to extend the reign of his machine over the institutions of these cities - the indictment of "Income Inequality" is NOT a central campaign theme.
It stands to reason that if your machine has had a long run domination over the "Human Resource Development Institutions" in the given city that the talk about the lumbering conditions would prove to be more of a self-indictment than an appealing platform for your base to cleave to.
In the transition from Bush To Obama - almost 4 years into the hand off and the progressive is STILL pacified that Obama is cleaning up Bush's mess.
Yet if we consider the handoff from:
- James to Booker in Newark
- Street to Nutter in Philly
- Fenty to Grey in DC
- Dixon to Rawlings-Blake in Baltimore
- Daley to Emanuel in Chicago
- Kilpatrick to Bing in Detroit
you NEVER hear any fundamental indictment about how that previous leader has damaged the city at a fundamental level, serving as justification of an "extended honeymoon" for the existing office holder.
The people who play this game fully understand that they BOTH are from the same machine and same ideology and, more importantly that they were an INVESTOR IN BOTH regimes.
Thus we must conclude that this line of thinking (the choice to shift the discussion of income inequality out of the "Mission Accomplished Zone" and outward into a space where there is a partisan enemy) is a SELF-PROTECTION RACKET. It allows the Progressive to express what I have already told you about them: They are a "Protest/Struggle" based movement which is INORGANIC. Absent some adversary to indict they fail to grow the people as they cleave to their progressive pronouncements of how the larger government is the source of their grievances about inequality.
I have stated before - the most effective Black Progressive Elected Officials are the ones that set up an EXTERNAL indictment and then are seen levitating off of the stage and leading the congregation in a rally that is full of resolve against an EXTERNAL ENEMY.
Please note that all of the diagrams below have a TIME LINE embedded within them.
It is quite ironic that those who cleave to the label "Progressive" don't have strong evidence of "progressive growth" among their clients as we inspect them for ORGANIC COMPETENCIES having been received as their power as incremented over time.
To the progressive "Increased LIBERTIES" (their version there of) is more important. Once you understand that these liberties are merely a reformation of "conservative" societal strictures where the tear down is considered the "Mission Accomplished moment" and not the measurement of the after-effects, then you can understand how they can pat themselves on the back amid the carnage that they played a large part in creating.
Until The Black Community Recovers Its "Black Community Development Consciousness" From The American Political Domain - No Amount Of "Struggle" Via The Present Methodology Will Lead To The Ends Will Satisfy The Unmet Aspirations Of The Black Community
At the core of the present compromise of the "BLACK COMMUNITY INSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY" is the larger commitment to POLITICAL standing that has been fortified.
Given the choice to affirm what is ultimately an element of "SELF-discipline" versus compromising "SELF" in order to protect a more defined and established system (American politics) - our recent past has shown that the Embedded Confidence Men who operate within our "Black Community Racial Consciousness Nucleus" will always drive for the compromise of our integrity for the sake of their larger interests in the "Progressive Multilateral Commission".
They merely need to chastise any Negro who dares to press for the need for integrity by noting that his antics merely assure a victory for the Republicans.
In establishing this argument - they understand that their congregation - in their PRESENT CONSCIOUSNESS - are concussed to the point at which they prefer to "fight against Republicans" than affirm the Permanent Interests of the Black community. The "Malcolm X Political Football Game" has a footprint today that is far larger upon the psyche of Black people than Malcolm X could ever have imagined.
