WHAT IS REVOLUTION FREEWILL?
Much of the world is meant to be the way it is - but much of the Stupidity in it is due to humans own lack of taking responsibility - They need to burn. The LIES of society need to be seen. All the praying and spiritual talk and 'love' is not going to do ANYTHING if we don't just get REAL. That is our real necessity.
Just as bad is all the pseudo political activist bullshit that brings no real change. Revolution FreeWill is here to poke fun at all that, while showing some truths which can possibly help society. In some ways perhaps my cartoon is a piece of SHIT - meaningless, crazy... but there is also a deeper layer to it -
This page shows some of the Deeper INSIGHT of Revolution FreeWill...Why did I create Revolution FreeWill? Maybe because I was tired of being lied to... by parents, schools, governments, tv, radio, movies, songs, friends, churches, temples and even my own mind. It's time for a change and that change is embracing REALITY.
Revolution of our Outer World &
Evolution of our Inner World...
That's Real Progress
We ALL have the outer world in society as well as the inner world of our True Self to deal with. The characters of Revolution FreeWill deal with these very REAL CHALLENGES. I believe that life is not about being anything other than REAL and that means having a REAL understanding of both these worlds - inside and out.
THE OUTER WORLD
The world is the machine - the Power Structure that we live in, mostly inhabited by liars, cheaters, sheeple and dominating bullies. Many of the people in society may be 'innocent' to a degree but as Human Beings, they have something called Free Will. And this is why it is THEIR OWN responsibility to Question, Learn and Support whatever is REAL and deny, destroy and ignore all that is FAKE.
Most of the masses however, do not care and LOVE their brainwashed lives. Revolution FreeWill is not for them - it is only for those who detest the fake in life that parades around as real, while destroying the moral fibre of society. Our outer world of society is dominated by the Elite who control even the puppet politicians - all serving Money over humanity.
THE INNER WORLD
The same way we have a world outside, we have a world INSIDE. Many romanticize it, calling it 'spiritual', but it is primarily psychological in my opinion and that is coming from a man (myself) whom has spent years studying every holy book as much as was possible & experimenting in the realms of spirit and energy.
The Inner world is full of misunderstandings we hold inside... It holds our secrets and emotional wounds. This is our weakness as human beings and the source of our self sabotage. Many a time, WE CHOOSE to be taken advantage of by the toxic people around us. Facing YOUR SELF - frees you to see who you really are and discern between the fake you and the REAL YOU. This is called Shadow-work. This is entering the 'Abyss' which opens you to the sometimes horrific truths which MOST of society are running away from or romanticizing.
REAL PROGRESS of the society (OUTER WORLD) and of our human mentality (INNER WORLD) takes place in many ways yes - but it is simplified in my opinion by simply UNDERSTANDING the 4 basics of Real Revolution in order to help the world - AND - doing 'shadow work', looking at your REAL INNER SELF to help yourself.
We allow ourselves to be Victims when we are caught in the lies of the world and of our own selves. Victimhood, Fear, Lack, Romanticism, Pacifism, Defeatism, Irresponsibility, Brainwash, Pseudo-Spiritualism, Self Castration -
Outside in society is no better... As we allow crime, corruption, misuse of power, unemployment, poverty, starvation, unhealthy food dominance, family favoritism, rape, murder, religious and racial tribalism, funding of meaningless ad campaigns for bullshit products, funding of horrible wars fought for no other reason than bullying other countries, pollution, economic oppression and exploitation and brainwash by the media and schools.
WHAT ARE THE 4 BASICS?
Rehab of the WORLD
IN society we tend to protest all sorts of things, march and picket, debate and complain or just hopelessly cry about the injustice happening. Modern Society needs to go back to BASICS. We just have to SEE the core ROOTS of our problems, rather than focusing on meaningless minor problems and outer details. Our world is wounded but can be rehabilitated.
Society has had many loud mouthed assholes who said they are revolutionary, but if we take the time to STUDY the REAL REVOLUTIONARIES - the real freedom fighters, who deserve to be taught in all schools worldwide, then we will realize they had one MAJOR MISSION & that was to stop the domination and oppression of the innocent people of society BY THE BULLIES who held POWER over them in society.
This is why I call society, like many other revolutionaries did, a POWER STRUCTURE. It is a structure of society in which many people have given up their power to others, many a time without even knowing it. And by giving up their power, the bullies in power take advantage.
We can study government, Communism, Capitalism, any other isms... world history, law and so much more but to me, the only real problem is the citizens of COMMUNITIES (which make up countries), not taking responsibility for their own BASICS. All the freedom fighters dealt with these BASICS in some way.
The 4 BASICS are:
By taking responsibility for these 4 basics, we REVOLUTIONIZE our entire COMMUNITY and become truly INDEPENDENT as a People, instead of victims to powerful entities of society such as the Government, the Police, the CRIMINALS and the large companies with their stores pushing unhealthy consumerism.
WE HAVE THE POWER - we have just forgotten or are too lazy and uncaring to USE IT. It is a LIE to say we don't have that power. We don't have to be extremely smart to be revolutionary. We don't have to become extremely rich or take high positions in government. We can just be OURSELVES and make the changes necessary for a truly BETTER WORLD.
We CHOOSE to give others that power and that is why our communities are completely corrupt, ghetto and beaten down. The Black Panther Party had these basics dealt with - and truly revolutionized their Community (before being infiltrated by sabotaging spies and having main members giving in to addiction and then, murdered in cold blood by the police). Therefore, I always say the Black Panthers (when they first started) are one of the BEST examples of real revolution of our 4 BASICS.
The 4 basics are ACTION oriented so you don't get bogged down in theory, study, inaction, paralysis of analysis.
Let us discuss the 4 basics in further detail..
#1 - Education
When humans are educated with the knowledge of how they are weakening their communities, they will have the CHOICE to stop doing those things. The new generation deserves that choice - whereby they can stop being brainwashed sheep to the powerful entities that seek to control and manipulate mankind. When people, especially children, learn about society's Power Structure, they realize that it thrives on Victim mentality, defeatist, pacifist nature and our own ignorance.
There are different ways to break away from that and build independence.
THE 4 BASICS OF REAL REVOLUTION show people HOW to break away and build the NEW world... Evolved... Improved... A world where our children grow into being RESPONSIBLE humans and business people who build up the society that is REAL and destroy those parts of society that are fake and corrupt. True education is not just about society and how to relate to it and improve it, but ALSO - how to relate to ONESELF and this is being REAL with oneself. One is greatly handicapped by not having time and proper tools/means to cope with stress. Unhealthy coping mechanisms show our lack of intelligence... Yes it is 'only human' but the extremes of it have no need to be there in society. Drinking, Drugs, Narcissism, Stealing, Sexual Abuse, Sex and porn addiction, Dominating others - it is all weak behavior which CAN be dealt with, yet we do not DEAL, far less for teaching the new generation how to deal with it.
Educational Institutions have been largely ROMANTICIZED. Many of them just exist to make easy money off of foolish, narcissist and naive parents. We live in a world where the teachers often do not know the very topics they are teaching and are lazy. School is given huge importance, though it does not give its students important information. Not only are theories and subjects taught that are not very useful in the real world, but often time, having a powerful mentality that Questions statements presented, is seen as criminal activity. Infinite lies are fed to the students concerning their employment and the world. Other than the 4 basics, here is what I view real education as:
1. Education is LEARNING TO BE HONEST. You don't need to SELL OUT OR LIE to 'get through'. Selling out is ANY personal profit you make, at the UNFAIR expense of someone else. It is being a fake - it is persuasion. It is corruption. MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT HONEST. Learn to do away with Duality and embrace REALITY. Being honest allows you to let go of being duped into PACIFISM, DEFEATISM and any type of VICTIMHOOD. Fake people are overly 'nice' people as well as overly wanna-be 'tough' people. There is a time to be SOFT/gentle and a time to be HARD and raise a sword of truth.
2. Education SEEING THE BIG PICTURE THAT HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF. Education is not so much memorizing dates and details so much as it is looking AT THE BIG PICTURE of society and learning TO SEE THAT HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF. The News Media reports the SAME shit over and over because it's the same problems facing society with the same solutions. When we look at history, there are MANY people we study whom are not so important as looking at the Revolutionaries - The REAL FREEDOM FIGHTERS.
Warriors such as Malcolm X and Patrice Lumumba, Bhagat Singh, Marcus Garvey, the Panthers... and seeing how their basic outlook was the same in dealing with the Power Structure - Seeing Neo Colonialism and to put it simply, how people are Oppressed. Notice Education always came before Action. Notice they always respected our power to ORGANIZE because there is NOTHING without that, as far as empowering the People is concerned. Our generation is taught about whore pop rap stars & fake movie/tv personalities instead of real Heroes.
3. Education is LEARNING TO KEEP A FAIR OPINION, BUT ALWAYS KEEPING SKEPTICAL OF ALL STORIES/PEOPLE YOU MEET - because it is a reality that most of what comes is either worthless or deception. 90% of society is BULLSHIT so we MUST be Skeptical of everything. I rather a nation of skeptics than a nation of naive fools. I don't expect people to trust me when I go outside. Trust is to be earned. Education is learning to OBSERVE and CONTEMPLATE and PROBLEM SOLVE any story in front of us and not only come up with an opinion but learn to keep with it in a world of stress and peer pressure to be a SHEEP like all the rest.
Yes, there is a time to compromise but by and large, most of life is to be lived without compromise once you are making EDUCATED DECISIONS. Most of the sheeple society are trapped in a mentality of TRIBALISM, divided by the Elites of the Power structure, so they can be CONQUERED and not be able to agree and organize on what truly matters for REAL PROGRESS of a nation. We are forever arguing and fighting over things that don't matter. Vegan vs Meat Eater, Black vs White, Christian vs Muslim, Poor vs Rich, etc... We are often distracted from supporting real change.
4. Education is LEARNING TO DISCERN TRUTH FROM LIES, REALITY FROM ILLUSION. We live in a world full of not just narcissists but also COVERT NARCS whom are wolves in sheep's fur. We are taught by the weak, lack oriented and codependent society, to be always LOOKING OUTSIDE OF OURSELVES for acceptance, 'love' and TRUST... instead of turning away from all that and LEARNING TO TRUST YOURSELF. This is REAL education which makes a nation strong and full of mature human beings who put an end to their nation's big problems especially Safety of innocent citizens. Whether information comes or does not come from a so called 'nice' person is not important at all - what matters is whether or not that info is Real or Not... True or Not.
5. Education is LEARNING TO VOTE RESPONSIBLY: Learning to only vote for politicians that make sense to have in power and learning to REFUSE to vote if it makes no sense to vote. Why encourage non-action / fake progress? Why not just do it yourself? Why settle for voting for dumb or dumber? What choice is that? Is that good for a country? Courage and Transparency are the makings of a real human being so why not courageously DEMAND transparency courageously make change to the country you want to see happen? Look at how the country is modeled to help the Elite and understand that you are a part of allowing that to happen. Education is learning to take responsibility.
6. Education is LEARNING TO HAVE RELATIONSHIPS & SEX RESPONSIBLY: Currently we live in a titillation obsessed society whereby Marketing Advertisers take advantage of us because we allow them to. Look at the bullshit we feed our kids - Look at the horrible mentalities they adopt. We have misunderstood and corrupted what 'sex' is in its basic form. Some have over-analysed it and put it on a pedestal, worshipping it and others have viewed it as a base animalistic sensual gratification that can be had irresponsibly and by means of deception and abuse. It is frequently used to trick and we therefore build a relationship off of trickery. It is used to SHOW OFF - a sexual conquering of sorts - How weak.
SEX itself can be revolutionized and education can be spread of Karezza and more stabilizing means of sexual interaction. Sex being acrobatics is the biggest lie of all - we WASTE ourselves in our so called sex, rather than treating it in a manner that BUILDS US.
RESPONSIBLE DATING needs to be encouraged so that we X out NEEDINESS in mankind - people who are afraid of breaking up are weak minded and oriented to LACK - they are the ones whom are just as bad as people who don't give a flying fuck about others in reality. Needy people usually put a mask of niceness on but behind it are dominating and controlling - be it men or women. Men need to hold sexual power and not let women take advantage just the same as women need to learn this too - BOTH sexes take advantage of one another in today's world, sexually. Meeting, socializing, being CLEAR about one's intentions and boundaries, breaking up - is a part of finding a partner even worth your time in a world where 90% of the people are assholes. It is not to be angered by - it is a REALITY and only a needy person will be angry. Once both parties are HONEST is what matters.
We have demonized ALONENESS when it is our base of TRUE STRENGTH. Men and women have put on MASKS to make the world believe they are happy when they are not. We have become a slave to our foolish NEED TO PLEASE others. Many of us feel LONELY because we have not developed a sensible approach to life yet - we have not done INNER WORK yet - Therefore we rush into relationships, we rush into marriage - Parents are the worst - they rush their children into it too. Marriages and relationships are ROMANTICIZED in society - People look down on divorce and it is even thought staying in an unhealthy marriage is better than divorce because it somehow helps the kids. NO IT DOES NOT - The children always prove that it does not. What it DOES do is teach the children to settle for less, to live a fake life of fake happiness and to develop tendencies of pleasing others at the expense of themselves. MORE ON THIS in INNER SELF teachings below...
#2 - Food
Food is the basis of LIFE. When you can FEED YOURSELF, you have no more EXTREME POVERTY in any community. This greatly improves the mentality of the community and therefore, the entire country. The citizens also won't be FORCED to take on horrible Slave labor jobs in order to feed themselves. Being able to EAT should not be denied to ANYONE - since food can be grown by anyone. Not being able to afford food is an enslavement of the highest degree because we MUST be able to FEED OURSELVES. This is a BASIC necessity.
It should be the NORM for communities and families to have their own garden - even PUBLIC GARDENS full of fruits and vegetables. Even if done in makeshift containers, it makes SENSE. Everyone can put a little time/effort/money toward maintaining a public garden/farm. This helps get ORGANIC, FRESH, HEALTHY food into the community instead of us being bombarded by tons of unhealthy fast food restaurants and BARS everywhere. Many of these places just tear down communities by tearing down the citizen's HEALTH.
MOST big name food chains offer very LOW QUALITY food in order to save money and get the most money out of you. Buying their product encourages them. We can source our meat from farms that care for the animals - we can go there and VISIT the animals even - and should be able to witness the entire process as that meat goes from being an animal to being food for you to consume. This makes sure the production process is healthy and not gross and dirty. It makes sure that the animals are respected in the way that the Native Americans ate their buffalo.
In the same way we should be able to check out and see for ourselves the fruits and veggies and how they are prepared, so that we KNOW there are no gross pesticides being used, that only kills us - the consumer! We are so used to accepting that restaurants don't need to tell us where they source their food from and this is a tragedy - WE ALLOW them to act this way and even PAY THEM to act this way!
Currently, healthy food is made quite unavailable and healthy products are made to be quite expensive. Let us learn about a natural diet as well as SUPPORT food businesses locally who can feed us that healthy diet. It is no wonder we are so unhealthy in our older age especially. YES, some of it cannot be helped but can't we put a little effort in, by adopting REAL health and not the FAKE health built on such things as the FAKE FITNESS INDUSTRY?
A fake fitness industry that is connected to FAKE DIETS - where eating 'Raw and Natural' is taken to an extreme - ROMANTICIZED and YES this is indeed coming from me - whom used to be vegan for several years of my adult life. Being vegan and vegetarian is okay but taking it to some crazy extremes and DEMONIZING the eating of meat is not for the best - That does not push our world into real progress at all. I follow a mostly vegetarian diet but I DO EAT MEAT (mostly fish) every once in a while. It is healthy.
Even eating so called unhealthy food once in a while is NORMAL and OKAY!!!! - It is EXPECTED, but the extreme brutality of it being the only thing made available and it being advertised aggressively to where it is practically SHOVED down our throats is a CRIME. FOOD is supposed to be our medicine NOT our POISON. The FOOD industry is such shit and it FEEDS US to the PHARMACY INDUSTRY (Big Pharma). We make uneducated choices based on their lies - all in the name of HEALTH.
Trinidad is a country OVERRUN by bar after bar after bar on EVERY CORNER and as seen on a worldwide scale, especially in USA, the Power Structure targets all poverty stricken places to make sure these bars show up in HUGE amounts. They have understood that it is so easy to affect the mentality of people by making them prone to drinking. We can do a great job by lifting our support of such establishments - I am not saying you should NEVER DRINK alcohol - that again, is foolish to even EXPECT here in the real world and UNNECESSARY!
What IS much more sensible is to stop letting the drink control us - To stop building a world full of alcohol for our youth to grow up in - a world where it is advertised even on huge billboards right next to schools and right during news broadcasts on TV. What a piece of shit country that is.
When it comes to health - We all deserve to be healthy - yet we have a corrupted view of what HEALTHY even looks like nowadays thanks to the fitness industry (or what it became). Being slim is demonized especially for men - whom are now expected to only be manly if they are big and strong with huge shredded muscles. Our young men and DUPED by countless companies to buy GARBAGE products that make all the biggest promises on building those muscles... many a time at the expense of their ORGANS and their body's mobility.
Men and women building muscle and getting bigger is GREAT if they want that - sure - we all deserve to EAT WELL AND EXERCISE WELL AND BUILD OUR BODIES WELL - but what is happening is today we build FAKE HEALTH - based on outside looks, while ignoring the actual inner health of the body - Again - REAL health and REAL food is not only not known but many a time, even hated. Whether a bit skinny or a bit chubby, ALL THAT IS GOOD once you are actually HEALTHY.
#3 - Money
Money is definitely a big MOVER in the physical world. There is great power in it, yet many a time we forget the Responsibility that comes with that power. When you take control of the MONEY FLOW in your community, it starts WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE instead of AGAINST THEM. Industry was not meant to oppress us at all and there is NO CHANCE for Economic Oppression when we understand not only that YOUR DOLLAR IS YOUR POWER but also that it is just as important how you spend as it is, how you choose NOT to spend.
YOU have the power to FINANCIALLY SUPPORT WHOEVER YOU CHOOSE. You don't need to support entities that are unhealthy for the community. Entities such as businesses that SAP the members of the Community of their money without doing anything truly constructive to build that community. INSTEAD of being taken advantage of - purchasing irresponsibly - we can exercise our intelligent and UTILIZE our money to support and push LOCAL businesses - Honest businesses - even if they are much SMALLER. We romanticize many companies by thinking they are good just because they say so or have huge amounts of money to convince you that they are good.
Your SAVING is just as important as you spending. If you are frivolous with your spending then you deserve to be economically oppressed and depressed. Practicing responsible spending and saving not only improves your own life but your entire community - YOU PLAY THE PART OF FUNDING AND BUILDING YOUR COMMUNITY instead of relying on other entities like the Government and Big companies for help. They usually do NOTHING. Why not help YOURSELF?
Much of this is the same advice given by Malcolm X which he called black economics - It is simply proper use of economics - no matter what the race - but the Oppressed must learn it so I called it 'oppressed economics' lol. After all, we ARE looked at as CONSUMER PIGS - Blind Naive following SHEEP who are obsessed with spending as instructed to by the world and its advertising around us. We often spend money on absolutely unneeded things which is such a waste of our own power, WHILE we empower those who live to oppress others.
We feed companies who laugh at our slave labor life... while they live far beyond even really working (though they always say they are the hardest workers and self made people - Philanthropists who do TONS of charity). We need to be AWARE of these liars - And understand that many a time, it is in fact the ones doing the MOST charity whom are actually abusing the Community the most and INVOLVED in the most corrupt of transactions. We must STOP romanticizing the rich - we must stop hating them too just because they ARE rich - instead we should see them for the HUMANS they are and judge their actions with extreme skepticism. It is so easy to be tempted by money, the same way Faith Healers tempt you by their so called miracles. Our Communities are weak and pay the price for that weakness.
If big corporations aren't supporting your community - why support them? I understand once in a while, (i buy things just like anyone else from so called big companies - that's NORMAL), but to push so much money their way is practically murdering your community... To invest in them and actually LOOK DOWN on local product - just because it is local is destructive to a Community's Power. It is unfair and Romanticism.
Independent Local businesses whom are honest and provide good service need to be appreciated and supported. I honestly believe that it is the BUSINESS PEOPLE who will play a HUGE ROLE in revolutionizing a community. They carry a lot of REAL POWER - not just because of their money - but because of their understanding of the FLOW of it - and the necessity of businesses being straight forward (not romanticizing anything) as well as providing high quality product/service. Not only this, but it is BUSINESS that invigorates EMPLOYMENT - True job opportunities that provide HONEST PAY for HONEST WORK. Fair is Fair. These are the independent type of citizens who will resist temptation and REJECT selling out to big businesses who destroy that honesty. These are the type of citizens who will ENJOY HEALTHY COMPETITION instead of a dog eat dog philosophy.
Most importantly, these are the type of citizens who will not romanticize Entrepreneurism, but rather, become the REAL version of that, instead of FAKE ENTREPRENEUR that is SOooo incredibly popular nowadays - Nearly EVERYONE is a fake entprepreneur who is not really making the sacrifices and is not truly independent, in that they are usually secretly just relying on one big client and have nothing else coming in - They are more like employees than entrepreneurs - Even more usual is to see these are people with normal full time jobs and their so called 'entrepreneurism' is just a hobby thing they do on the side. How entrepreneurial! How sacrificing! All that money and all that showing off - and no real work to back it up. Fuck off.
Moving on, taking control of MONEY in the community means embracing other means of transfer of product and service from one person to the other. YES, our prime mode of that transfer is via MONEY... but we need not ONLY rely on money to be able to DO BUSINESS. We can exercise the 'I scratch your back, you scratch mine' MUCH MORE in society. This means - I can do a service for you if you do a service for me - we BOTH get something out of it - even though no money is changing hands. Why is this so important?
Because this invigorates PRODUCTIVITY. This means we will have MORE OPPORTUNITY to work together and utilize one another - PRODUCTIVELY. It will give opportunity to POORER people to AFFORD MORE and get more done - it INCREASES the VALUE of the service/product that the poor person HAS because now they can utilize it much more dynamically. See? Now our EFFORT which is our most important asset - our time and energy, becomes a VALUABLE thing which can be UTILIZED much more efficiently. We LIVE more productively. MONEY needs to not be our 'only' form of VALUE - and it IS, right now in this MONEY OBSESSED society.
Our society does not even TEACH about money truly - REALLY what it is and how to use it. Schools are worthless in this regard it seems. Business ethics, proper marketing and pricing are not valued in today's world. No wonder we are so fucked up! Sell outs parade around calling themselves Entrepreneurs and intellectuals argue for lifetimes over what works and doesnt work in Capitalism vs Socialism and Communism.... ALL THIS, when the Basics are not being looked at...
Speaking of not being looked at... TRANSPARENCY is LOST in today's world mostly because so many have SO MUCH to hide... and WE the People ALLOW IT. We don't even care or know how most of the tax money is spent by the Government nowadays. This is a tragedy. ENFORCING and DEMANDING transparency scares away corruption. WE tolerate corruption then complain about it... like IDIOTS.
#4 - Security
Security is the MOST important basic in MY opinion, much to most people's surprise. But come on - let's be real. If you arent physically safe, then your EDUCATION, FOOD and MONEY will be in danger and can be taken at ANY TIME from you. SIMPLE as that! Now... Let's look around us. The biggest problem seems to be CRIME. Crime is not a new problem - yet we have not even DEALT with it yet. We have not taken RESPONSIBILITY for our innocent citizen's safety. We have ALLOWED criminals to conquer us because we are so scared or selfish. HELL, we practically FUND them by pouring our money into movies and entertainment that ROMANTICIZES criminality and makes heroes out of bad boys/girls.
It is so absurd that it is FUNNY ,how we complain about rape and lawlessness when we are the ones who allow it. So - HOW exactly do you take control of SECURITY in a Community? Simple... Make it known you actually care. That's it... Just LOOK OUT for people - innocent people and don't be afraid to help. The MOST effective means of SHOWING you care and taking responsibility for a Community's safety is by setting the example that you aren't afraid to DEAL with the problem of crime. And I believe that is best done by doing COMMUNITY PATROL.
COMMUNITY PATROL, with or without weapons, is a simple ACT that strikes fear and doubt into ANY criminal and definitely discourages them from committing crimes especially those of harassing and kidnapping women and children. A criminal will only act if the surrounding agrees and allows that action. But if our environment is WILLFULLY looking for that criminal and not afraid to stand up to them - then the chances of crime are lessened exponentially.
Don't you see the so called 'projects' are just PROJECTS of the Elite to take power away from us? When we give up our power to look over our neighborhood, we then RELY co-dependently on the POLICE - of COURSE our society is going to be filled with crime! WHAT THE HELL DID YOU EXPECT? lol. When you rely on an entity such as the police, who COME AFTER a crime is committed (sometimes WAY after), of course people are going to commit crimes!
Our young men can exercise responsibility and make use of their aggression by simply walking and actively being on the alert for any UNJUST and criminal behavior. PREVENTION is the best medicine - so why not PREVENT crime, rather than only dealing with it when it happens? Why are men trying to act tough and putting on big muscles, wearing intimidating tattoos, yet they arent even manly enough to discuss Patrol, far less for actually DOING IT. I have seen the biggest showoffs reduced to NOTHING just because of their own fear of the street. How weak a society we live in. Every badboy wants to exclaim they are so gangster and street! Yet they dont even know how to be there!? lol
We cannot prevent people hiding in homes from committing crimes yet - only because we don't have proper laws and TRANSPARENCY to help such victims. But the least we can do is SET THE TONE by patrolling public places. Furthermore, we can build REAL safe houses (not the fake ones) - that act as a place of safety and ESCAPE for abused individuals who are economically tied/enslaved to their households. ALL of this is common sense, yet here we are actually bothering to talk to the government and police and try to see SOME kind of progress there...
We don't even realize how criminal many of not MOST parents are... parents in the richest and biggest of houses - abusing their kids EMOTIONALLY and physically and many a time, sexually. We underestimate the power of demanding transparency. But will rich parents allow that? Hell no - because they have so much to hide. By simply having a Community Consciousness, whereby kids are allowed to speak their mind - and are not shunned nor blackmailed - we can easily prevent abuse that breaks and wounds so many kids. In a REAL community, yes we all have our privacy, but we also are not afraid to speak about whether or not ABUSE is happening in ANY community member's HOME. It's not about shame and blame - it's about JUSTICE. Didn't it take a village to raise a child? So many parents have NO CLUE how to raise a child - keep that in mind.
1. LOOKING OUT for your fellow citizens. Without community patrol, we are telling criminals to commit crimes. We are showing everyone we do NOT CARE about the physical safety of our children, our families, our elders. Just as the Guardian Angels and Black Panthers, we need to simply walk around in day AND in night to give our nation SAFETY. This is NOT some romanticized dangerous immature vigilantism. This is called taking responsibility for the country you live in, instead of being lazy and blaming government and police for all your problems, while complaining about the extreme crime. You are not patrolling to prove heroism, you are patrolling to help people. You can even do this and CALL POLICE upon seeing trouble, instead of handling it yourself, if you choose to handle it that way.
2. ARMING YOURSELF - with self defense knowledge as well as with the mentality of a warrior. You don't need to have GUNS or weaponry BUT it is VERY GOOD to have allocated RESPONSIBLE specially chosen individuals with that right to walk with arms. They must be well deserving of it and act as Community Police because we should NEVER rely on police alone for our protection. I am not saying we need MORE GUNS or LESS GUNS. I AM saying that we can use the invention of the gun for GOOD - which again, is NORMAL - after all - that's what we gave the POLICE! But how is that working out? Not so good right? LOL. If proper weaponry in SMALL AMOUNTS is put into the right people's hands - decided so by a responsible Community, then obviously - less crime will take place.
3. PROTECTION OF LAND RIGHTS - You must protect your land. No Government or big company must be allowed to bully ANYONE off of their land. You'd be surprised how much this happens especially to poorer villages. We are allowing CITY LIFE to dominate and abuse and kill off our VILLAGE LIFE. This is why I made the documentary 'Forward Never, Backward Ever'. Without Land, there is no possibility of real FREEDOM - because you NEED physical SPACE to exist in - DUH!!! As simple as that point is, we are fighting for all kinds of meaningless rights - when this is the main right to have and yet we really don't - so we as a country are not even Independent - we just like to romanticize and be FOOLISHLY PATRIOTIC to stroke our ego - when we don't even REALLY CARE about our country. Rather we just want to have a flag on our car or some BULLSHIT.
4. ZERO TOLERANCE of CRIMINALS. We are far too easy on them. No wonder they feel they can and DO run the streets and the country in a way. Nowadays, weak victim mentality oriented people parade as 'do gooders' - say they will pray away the problems - they testify and protest but most importantly, they vilify and demonize Violence as a and are actually telling people it is wrong to enforce strong measures of Self Defense. They are castrating our Community with their weak talk. 'Violence' isn't even what to discuss but rather, proper physical boundaries being put into place to make a SAFE society. Proper measures being taken to DEAL with criminals - Again - I am not AGAINST government and police - I just think that they should be MUCH SMALLER - we should not be relying on them for SO MUCH - SMALL government and small police is VERY effective in having a healthy nation.
REMEMBER - without SECURITY, all the other basics are meaningless - Without security, criminals and corrupt parts of the government and police can just come and kill you ! What good is Education and Food and Money if you are DEAD.... They can come and even take your land - whereby you have No PLACE to have education or food or money. Just THINK. I made this cartoon and comic and music to plant THESE SEEDS in society - it is common sense and common sense aint common at all...
WHAT IS INNER SHADOW WORK?
Rehab of the Self
Some call it healing the Inner Child, others call it facing your self - the deep dark wounds and misunderstandings about yourself that keep you from BEING your truth in this lifetime. You can't BE what you don't KNOW and you cannot KNOW until you SEEK that truth out, inside your own mind. It is REHAB. It is SELF HELP. It is holding a mirror up and looking deeply at what you see. It is taking responsibility. It is Maturing and BECOMING a fully Integrated human being.... It is FREEDOM. Because it is important to be free inside ourselves, not just outside in the world.
I believe the first step to true 'healing' and 'empowerment' is ADMITTING you need help. Just like coming off of any addiction, you must admit it's there THEN and only then, can the process begin of dealing with it. After admitting to it, the second step is seeking that help out. You can utilize books, teachers and the help of many religions and philosophies - but you must seek within. This means DOING THE WORK - the INNER WORK as it is referred to in today's society.
FACE your shadow. THAT takes TRUE heart and toughness -not a romanticized approach to spiritual progress which keeps one in a DAZED STATE of ignorance - many a time, a weakened state of lies - imprisoned in fake smiles, fake prayers, fake meditation, fake yoga, fake morals... It takes real COURAGE to do shadow work - and actually FREE yourself by separating yourself from your wounds instead of spending your WHOLE LIFE 'working on the wounds' in a way that does NOT allow you freedom but rather keeps you enslaved to them.... Many spiritual people play the victim and keep themselves down and weak, by constantly 'picking' at their wounds - studying it is good yes, but analyzing it over and over and staying down in it is negative. It prevents you from LIVING LIFE. We must therefore learn how to GO INWARD - do the work - and become our TRUE SELVES - instead of ignoring it (shallow people do this) OR going in and THINKING we are doing the work, and staying there forever.
You can tell if it's being done, by your BELIEFS and more importantly, by your ROMANTICISM of things here on earth and IN YOURSELF. HOPELESS romantics are HOPELESS because they refuse REALITY and therefore cannot FUNCTION in society as their true selves. They either have to put on a fake mask to function in it, OR they have to hide away afraid of it.... of society's opinions.
It takes True Discipline to do that. There are extremely HARD WORKING busy bees, bumbling about in meaningless tasks which they feel so heroic about, but yet they didn't have the guts to do the INNER WORK on themselves. Pitiful. We don't ENCOURAGE this inner work in schools yet it is of MUCH MORE importance THAN ALL the other subjects we can teach about. It is the BASIS of our life experience. Instead we teach foolish immature and hypocritical modes of thinking, USUALLY connected to religion.
Our inner romanticism causes us to FALL to trickery - we are conformable LYING TO OURSELVES so we become comfortable with the LIES OF SOCIETY. We become slaves to our own self willed weakness. OUR WOUNDS EXPRESS THEMSELVES IN OUR VARIOUS WAYS OF SELF SABOTAGE. WE MUST FEEL INTO OUR PAIN as we turn the PAIN INT POWER. But we must not become pseudo spiritual 'pain addicts' who romanticize that pain. We must truly CHOOSE to empower ourselves and not just talk about it.
THIS IS REAL EDUCATION
So once again, we come back to the need
of the SELF
The body must be stretched and exercised and in the same way, our minds must be as well. Meditation, Yoga, Self Reflection and study of our own ADDICTIONS does that. Listening within - taking time to understand ourselves helps us to become 'SELF AWARE' and then and only THEN can we be ourselves in the world where EVERYONE has an agenda and an opinion which YOU will have to separate yourself from in order to see EVERYONE for who they are. TRUE Inner Work frees one from becoming NAIVE and weak. Weak people allow others to push them around in MANY WAYS.
If one wants, they can study religion - Hinduism, Christianity, Sikhism, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism and even so called Satanism - but one must never be limited and pinned down by that study. Even our FAMILIES become our religions - our brainwashers - whom we cling to, afraid to be a BLACK SHEEP whom truly thinks for themselves.
We grow up in a society that ROMANTICIZES FAMILY LIFE - We are afraid to draw boundaries with family - we treat family better than others for NO REASON - we GIVE AWAY our power of SELF to our family because we WRONGLY think we owe them EVERYTHING. We castrate ourselves in order to gain the attention, affection and most of all - APPROVAL of our family. This is what is usually at the center of MOST people's wounds of childhood. And a person who lives for the approval of their family, becomes a person who lives for the approval of ANYONE OUT THERE IN SOCIETY so OF COURSE - they will be WEAK, they will be TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. We rather lie to ourselves and say all is well - all is okay - and fill our minds with spiritual talk - than to see the truth of the TOXICITY of humans - be it family, friend, WHOEVER!
The wounded child inside is our prime reason for self sabotage and addiction. I have been addicted to pornography - others have been addicted to all sorts of things from sex to alcohol to drugs to ANYTHING. The world is full of rape and we are all raped by society in a way and YES, there is a place for forgiveness but that is simply being GRATEFUL for the lessons learned from that rape. It is NOT about being grateful for that rape and it is in no way to be used to pacify us into not HATING that rape. That is a thing that pseudo spirituals - wimpy passive aggressive hippie people PREACH. Society's intellectuals and 'do gooders' constantly KILL our ability to be REAL as a human being, by relying on WORDS such as love and hate.
They romanticize love and vilify HATE. They romanticize accepting others, as they allow others to take advantage. They vilify reality and judgement of others - which is NEEDED to LIVE in this world - Common sense. I am not talking about unfair judgement - I am talking about JUDGEMENT - you must judge people and things in order to draw boundaries and HONESTLY agree or disagree with those people and things. Otherwise, you're not human - you are a robot, accepting anything and everything just to FIT IN with the masses OR just because you are lazy to actually think and feel.
What are our wounds? Look at the characters of Revolution Freewill - look how sexual trauma, rape, workaholism, alcoholism, perfectionism, self degradation, laziness, co-dependency and LACK mentality all corrupt them. These are all wounds. YOU are not your addiction and once you can make that separation, you allow yourself to make a HEALTHY SEPARATION from ALL PEOPLE - ALL HUMANITY - this is called having 'healthy boundaries'. This is FREEDOM.
As we learn to be ourselves, we learn to HEAL ourselves as well as fighting for ourselves. Only a person who wants to fight for themselves will CARE enough to fight for a Community. It all comes full circle and is CONNECTED. Meditation and LETTING GO is necessary for TRUE healing - true REST of our over-analytical, chaotic minds that are constantly being pushed by society and by ourselves to do. It IS right to be active and DO lots of actions - BUT we underestimate the POWER of non action - and RELAXATION as a means of healing.
I am not talking about playing games, sleeping, fun, doing things you like - I am talking about completely shutting down while being awake - and allowing yourself to subconsciously PROCESS and THROW AWAY all the garbage of our LIFE EXPERIENCE. All the data - the THOUGHTS - thoughts are good but they can also be our worst enemy if not KEPT IN CHECK and that is why MEDITATION is an extremely important part of INNER WORK - not just the conscious work of delving into our wounds but the subconscious work too. You HAVE to truly rest in order to truly ACT. RELAX into your power.
WHAT IS OUR MAIN PROBLEM?
The Need for REALITY
Our main problem is romanticizing things because of our own LACK. Our main problem is anything that is FALSE.... ANY lack of REALITY. Reality is our main solution. EXPOSING THE FAKE is our RIGHT. There is a time for being 'soft' & a time for being 'hard' - yin and yang - being forgiving and quiet, being RAW and loud, being private/planning, being out in the open/acting and yet we have such blurred vision that we CONFUSE ALL OF THIS.
There is a place for Surrender just as there is a place for SELF WILL. There is a place for walking away and ignoring idiots just like there is a place for Confrontation. There is a place for seriousness and by and large there is PLENTY place for humor and laughing at the sheer shallow IDIOCY of humanity. A humanity that DESERVES to be made fun of.
Some of us run from chaos and others run from being organized. ALL these things DO NOT MATTER to me - because what matters is just being REAL. We have over complicated our lives and paralyzed the accomplishment of our Purposes. Many think they are REAL , but they are not. 9 out of 10 people in my opinion SAY they are REAL, but are actually lying SCUM.
The new generation doesn't care to be babied nor to be treated like shit. They just want REALITY - That is what will help them. There is NOTHING wrong with sadness, happiness, frustration, anger.... even PAIN - if it is in the TRUE JOURNEY toward REALITY. I rather be REAL and FULFILLED than what society calls being 'happy'. Happiness doesn't matter to me at all. It is the same as sadness and anger - They are emotions that come and go - but being REAL is what matters. ALL of our technological and industrial progress and EVEN all of our TRADITIONAL ways of the ancient wisdom are meaningless without REALITY.... Therefore our main problem is a lack of Reality.... and our main solution is embracing that reality .
Instead of seeing the world for what it is, we try to make up what we want the world to be because we are afraid and don't like how hopeless it seems. We are CONSTANTLY in a stage of prolonged PROCESSING of the PAIN of the world and only those of us who are truly ACCLIMATED with ourselves and the world - the DARKNESS OF IT - can be REAL in that world and FACE that world - unintimidated by it. I tell you - my belief is 9 out of 10 people are pieces of shit and THIS is REALITY - I hold the opinion that this allows ME to be me and do my job in the world to improve it. I don't have to put on a fake smile - i dont have to ACT NICE - and most of all - I dont need to take shit from ANYONE. I dont need ANYONE's approval since I KNOW myself and I know I am living to constantly build MY LIFE while helping the Community - in LITTLE ways.
This world thinks so lowly of ALONENESS. THAT is the tragedy. We are all SO LONELY because we are afraid of accepting the most empowering way of life that is True ALONENESS. Only when you can be alone with your true self can you BE that self in the world with others and THAT is all our life asks of us.
'Ignorant Bliss' is a romanticized term that can take us away from being REAL and living a fulfilling life. We must never become beastly criminals but we must also never expect people to be honest, 'nice' or understanding and 'loving'. That expectation fuels us to then become slaves of our own expectations of ourselves as we put on a MASK of niceness - just to gain some APPROVAL. Even in the most brutal people - they, just like anyone, put that mask on so they won't feel alone... They have no true sense of ALONENESS and are not really FREE. They are not TOUGH... Not 'Badass' but just people who want you to believe they are.
Most people are looking for other people and places to fit in and while in a small way, this can be good - It does mostly turn into a mental/physical place of romanticizing reality AS A GROUP... a SCENE - an UNHEALTHY Community. This is where cultish behavior comes from and FALSE activism is born. That's why it is JUST as important to STAND ALONE (even opposing your community) as it is to stand WITH YOUR PEOPLE (unified in the community) - Again - it all comes down to embracing REALITY and if someone is NOT - then you DONT need to pretend to agree with it or go ALONG with it. THAT is True SUICIDE.
We love being loved - and that's the kind of person I was. The fact that people don't give a fuck is a hard lesson but only if you aren't open to that reality. As soon as you are, everything is easy. I see it in the MOST nihilistic of people btw - not just spiritual people - but the grumpiest of people I have seen just in a state of heartbreak 24 7 - That's why it's so easy to take advantage of them over and over. People come up with 100 thousand ways to 'be tough' - we can get tons of tattoos, muscles, money, have many partners, tons of hot sex... talk about the supposed challenges we overcame, become deeply flamboyant about our FAITH... we can do all sorts of shit - especially talk about success, love, religion, 'oneness' - but the toughest of tough has NOTHING to do with being tough. Huh?
That's right - It just is accepting reality. We don't need to be tough - we just need to be REAL. Yes I have that opinion and most don't agree but that is why life hurts them and every stage of it is making new excuses or relying on something outside of themselves to improve life. We WAIT for good things and 'good' people. There ARE honorable people worth helping, supporting and who will help you and support you - but we have thought too much of humanity. They are no where near as nice as we want to believe. We must not HIDE from them - we must be OUT THERE with them and thereby we will FIND the needles in the haystack. The Chosen ones who will bring TRUE PROGRESS to the world.
Unfortunately - we give humanity chance after chance after chance, meanwhile demonizing our natural states of hate, anger and undying will to find truth which is all about exploring the deep dark shadows of human consciousness. Acceptance of that darkness is not at all saying it's ok or agreeing with it or joining it and becoming some 'heartless' monster who rapes kids and lies to people.
Instead it is an acceptance of Reality and only from there, can you ultimately and vehemently oppose things from a truly authentic place inside, that is not built on Romanticism - not built on trying to FIT IN with a group - not BUILT on shallow goals of grandeur, but REAL.
That's where Anti-Humor comes from - Anti-Music (like I make a lot of) too - This is the place where action happens and change too. Hoes are not meant to be loved - Acceptance of them and opposition to them is what is necessary - this is leaving pacifism behind and embracing being a real human being. You don't have to learn to set boundaries too much because your REALNESS sets it for you.
People on this Earth all WANT to see that Realness. When you realize FULLY that most people are pieces of shit, it doesnt make you afraid of them because now you can handle it. You move a certain way naturally - you have integrated into society instead of running away from it. There is place for dropping off the face of the Earth - becoming a yogi and all that - but it is not to be used as any excuse to run away from society and therefore - from your True Courageous self. AGAIN - it doesnt mean at all you have to agree with or LOVE anything about that society - it just means you can now live life FREE and be yourself. That in itself helps society by setting a good example for others. I don't see this as being tough - I think the word tough is just again, romanticizing everything.
Now stop reading my craziness - and BE REAL.
This entire page is summarized in the following statement:
REVOLUTION OUTSIDE & EVOLUTION INSIDE IS TRUE PROGRESS.
BE REAL...Be RAW - Be rEvolution.
A little surprise for reading all these goddamn words...
Below are 2 funny as hell videos LOL - The Revolution Freewill project started out as a little mini cartoon I wanted to make called Old Man Joe - the first video is actually my final demo which I graduated from AiFL with (bachelor's in animation & media art). Already you could see it mixed WHACKY and MEANINGFUL stuff together. It also utilized a LOT of my own music - so was my place of combining my music AND art together - There was a comic book feel to the animation too - The 'animation' at times really sucked yeah but I don't care lol.
After graduating, I worked fucking hard as hell - at a company called AGF/Ballistic phone cases in Florida and was not getting to do much of my independent work as you can imagine. ANYWAY - long story short - I tried many a time to bring my indie expertise into the corporate environ - it was not accepted but that's OBVIOUS and EXPECTED. nevertheless - check out the video below.
It shows again the music combined with animation. I have to thank my co worker - illustrator Jason for helping - I utilized again - some comic style STILLS in the animation - as well as some green screen stuff. You can see the 'gross' humor really coming out as well as Advertising happening here.
Lost that job - went all across USA looking for another - found none - (remember it had to be within my work permit's expertise and full time etc) - I came home to Trinidad and then got into video work here - explored a LOT of work places and again, found no time for my independent work - even less now, because there was hardly any work and hardly any money - So I then tried to get together a TEAM of animators from a school here - UTT- University of Trinidad and Tobago.
I handled most of the animation and all video but took my old man joe idea and this is where the MAIN change happened - you see in the video below how it had now expanded and included a different 'star' being Abidi. At the time i was still VERY MUCH into compromising though - and shot myself in the leg by doing too much of that - I tried to please business people and myself - and ended up making some bullshit. Well - it had its positives but also tons of negatives.
Here you can see the influence of Social Action coming into my work. Environmentalism and awareness of social problems - corruption and a definite vibe of government related topics came in as well as trying to solve those problems and pushing good health etc. This was called AgriVenture - I wanted to show a lot but mask it in a 'children's program' so it would get funded - because I knew no one wanted to fund something extremely controversial.
Next I tried to put it to the public - here is a HILARIOUS video of failure LOL - I have always been considered very adept at public presentation (i was founder and leader of Toastmaster's in college etc) - but did a horrible job here LOL. I also had the help again of Ryan my assist who totally messed up his skit in the beginning of our presentation LOL - AGAIN, I was compromising and confused - I tried to sell an idea that did not make sense to people.
The company I have (trinevolve studios ltd) was not what i was trying to convince people to fund, but that was what was focused on - It was just horrible - I was confused about myself - I wanted people to like the cartoon as well as the company - BOTH got mixed up - confusing people including myself.
I did answer the questions okay though - I just like looking at how shitty i was back then - very disciplined - but overly trapped in my extreme spiritualism and you can tell not just from my looks but my voice and outlook.
ANYWAY - that life is over - now it's time for the REALITY-
Time for a cartoon and comic and music that kicks ass unapologetically.
Time to put all my study into action and make something that can help humanity.
