DEAR MARTY MOSS-COANE:
YOUR PROBLEM IS that DESPITE SEEING THE PROBLEMS as manifest as "Neighborhoods of Underdeveloped Philadelphia Negroes" and thus concluding that THEY ARE INJURED FROM A 'LEGACY OF RACISM IN AMERICA' AND PRESENT DAY 'RIGHT WING POLITICS THAT DENY THEM SOCIAL JUSTICE' - it is YOU who can't BREAK AWAY FROM YOUR PROGRESSIVE FUNDAMENTALIST IDEOLOGICAL WORLD VIEW and begin to STAND WITH THE UNDERDEVELOPED PEOPLE WHO ARE BEING HARVESTED - even if YOUR FAVORED POLITICAL MACHINE is receiving the proceeds from their HARVESTED VALUABLES.
I will yield to it is true that with regard to some NATIONAL ISSUES there needs to be a "Progressive Fundamentalist Balance" as a means of countering THE RIGHT WING. When it comes to the local conditions in Philadelphia and, as you say "A One Party City" whose finger prints are upon all institutions - THE FACT THAT THEIR REMAINS MASSIVE UNDERDEVELOPMENT OF THE PEOPLE - despite decades of them VOTING FOR THEIR SALVATION (and compromising their "Community Resource Development Institutions" to facilitate an unchallenged drive toward this political end) it is YOU whose FUNDAMENTAL ASSUMPTIONS are not challenged as this reality confounds your natural preference for Progressive Fundamentalist solutions.
WHAT IF, Mrs Coane, there is a solution OUTSIDE OF AMERICAN POLITICS and that the actual SINGLE PARTY THAT IS HURTING THE NEGRO is, in fact, AMERICAN POLITICS? With my "Harvesting" metaphor standing intact as an accurate model, what IF the POPULAR OPINION OF UNDERDEVELOPED PEOPLE, as voiced in "Councilmatic Prerogative" is THE COLLECTIVE VIEWS THAT HAVE LEFT THEM UNDERDEVELOPED in the first place?
We all would like to believe that a collection of 'rational people', when given an OPEN PROCESS FOR 'SPEAKING' would guide a vessel in support of their PERMANENT INTERESTS.
It is clear, however, that YOU CAN'T SEE that when a force of MOLESTATION which MANIPULATES THE SENTIMENTS OF THE PEOPLE so that they are NOT, IN FACT, managing their PERMANENT INTERESTS but are ONLY VOICING A 'POPULAR OPINION' of a COLONIZER'S FIELD AGENT who is "OF THEM" and KNOWS how to prod and poke their HATRED AND THEIR HOPE - that POPULARITY IS NOT A GOOD MEASURE of PERMANENT INTERESTS.
The ONLY effective measure of one's "PERMANENT INTERESTS", Mrs Coane is "A MEASURE OF INVESTMENTS OF VALUABLES MADE" OVER TIME and the MEASURE OF THE RESULTING DEVELOPMENT as proof of the EFFECTIVENESS OF THESE INVESTMENTS.
Do you think that YOUR BLACK FRIEND, James Braxton Peterson, is any more likely to STOP THE HARVEST OF THE PHILADELPHIA NEGROES' VALUABLES when HE, LIKE YOU, is PLEASED that the Negro is investing his valuables (his HOPE) into AMERICAN POLITICS in support of your common Progressive Fundamentalist Causes?
THE CITY NEEDS TAX REVENUES TO FUND THE 'SOCIAL JUSTICE SCHEME'
WHAT ABOUT POINT BREEZE shows evidence that the PREVAILING OPINION IS COMPETENT at building up INSTITUTIONS that will facilitate a future economic powerhouse?
YOU ARE LISTENING TO "CONSUMERS"!!!
When the subject of so called "Gentrification" come up - I HAVE NEVER HEARD YOU POINT TO FORMER "WHITE AREAS" of the city and suburbs that have taken in BLACK PEOPLE as a counter balance.
Why is it that the so called "Gentrification" around University of Pennsylvania is an INJUSTICE, but the RACIAL FLIPPING of the "Overbrook Park" section over the past 20 years (from White to Black) is again noted as "WHITE FLIGHT"? CLEARLY you and others have a WHITE CENTRIC perspective (including your "Black Best Friends")
The THREAT from so called "Gentrification" is the fact that certain quantities of UNDERDEVELOPED BLACKS who where HARVESTED IN A CONFIDENCE SCHEME, are now NOT PREPARED to operate in the MAIN ECONOMY OF THE CITY as an EQUAL ECONOMIC PARTICIPANT - and as a result - once again PROGRESSIVE FUNDAMENTALISM MUST COMPROMISE ITSELF for accommodation.
- THERE IS NO "CORPORATE PERSONHOOD"
- THERE IS NO "BLACK REAL ESTATE"!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- There is ONLY an inventory of "land lots", "physical structures" both of whom have a TAX MILLAGE RATE assigned to it in order to FEED THE LOCAL ECONOMY AND MUNICIPAL TAX BASE from which THE LOCAL ECONOMY SELF PERPETUATES.
Your ideological bond - but more importantly YOUR FUSION TO AMERICAN POLITICS as "The Single Venue Through Which People BUILD UP THEMSELVES" IS THE PROBLEM!!
The low voting rates in Philadelphia LOCAL ELECTIONS are proof that the people have tuned out THEIR HOPES FOR SALVATION through INSTITUTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN MOLESTED and now the ONLY competition is at the NATIONAL RUNG.
JUST LIKE this model that I created 10 years ago describes.
MY FANTASYSCAPE: THE CONFRONTATION INITIATED BY WHITE LIBERALS IN THE MEDIA IN WHICH THEY PROVE THAT THEY STAND WITH "UNDERDEVELOPED PEOPLE" WHO ARE BEING HARVESTED, RATHER THAN MERELY STANDING UPON THEIR IDEOLOGICAL SENSIBILITIES IN AMERICAN POLITICS
