One of the keys to our mutual success is establishing trust. Before we can have a serious talk about unity we must be honest about the obstacles that keep us from it. How we approach those obstacles is how we approach unity. We have personal healing to do. We have been programmed not to trust each other while indoctrinated to respond to European advertising with more trust than we have in our own people. There are, of course, many reasons for this lack of trust. Most of our businesses are not on the same level as their competition. What they need to get there is time and money. And it’s not just them. Many “mom and pop” stores are dying because consumers are responding to the lower prices and convenience that is created by corporations with big money. This is acceptable in capitalism because competition doesn’t have to be fair. The advantages in a capitalistic society are for the wealthy. And they expand and protect their wealth by by using it to block competition from getting to where they are.
Consider the rising cost of college education. The best schools are also the most expensive so that it creates a hurdle for those without wealth. Those without wealth compete mainly with others who don’t have wealth while corporations can give the best jobs and opportunities to those with the best education without fear of legal reprisal. The real wealth is not what comes from the rich. They only use their riches to get more from the poor and middle class, the very people who are enticed by their low prices which as based, not on the work of the rich, but on the slave labor of the poor around the world. This strategy of using slave labor to transfer wealth also transfers power because wealth is used to bribe and buy influence.
Let’s first begin by understanding the reason that the Black Lion Society was formed. The only meaningful way to combat this strategy is through a revolution. The people must wake up and take back their world. However, such a daunting task cannot be accomplished by sticks or stones or mere words alone, even though the pen is mightier than the sword. What is required is a more sophisticated level of organization; one in which people are not forced but choose to join and where people are loyal because they understand that loyalty to the whole is loyalty to the individual. We rise and fall together. The things that we plan to do, as the Black Lion Society, are things we simply must do in order to survive for the more wealth is transferred to the rich in their system of economic conquest and domination the less we are able to live free and independent lives. Instead we become wards and dependents of the state because we have been drained to the point where we can no longer survive and offer our blood.
Black Lion Society is not simply an eloquent identification of the problem. The higher up you go the more you understand the solution and the more you become part of it. If we are being systematically programmed to transfer our wealth to the already wealthy then we need another program, a counter-program, to recycle and circulate wealth among ourselves. Even if they do not buy from us we make money from them by working for them. The problem is we don’t keep this money because we give it right back to them. During this cycle of money boomeranging back into their pockets we have the banks who participate by providing bank loans disproportionately to those outside of our community. Again, they can use wealth as a barrier to entry because when you don’t have wealth you are far more likely to “misuse” credit. They can also use the lack of real assets to deny us. The bottom line is that there is a system at play in which Black People are not involved on a “regular” level. There will always be exceptions and exceptions are allowed in order to pose as evidence that the system is fair and sustainable; to prevent revolutions. This type of ‘fairness’ is an illusion of power just like when you are allowed to vote for one guy over another only because their campaigns are backed by wealth.
It is easy to say “Buy Black” and while this is something we should do we need a sophisticated level of organization to make what we should do effective. If the black businesses you support turn right back around and give all your money back to Europeans then you have only helped them, not the community. Buying Black helps the community when that money bounces around it several times. Business owners who join The Black Lion Society must pledge to support other businesses and act in ways that are going benefit the community if they want their business recognized by the Society. This is one of many requirements that are part of the Society that help to implement our agenda.
Once we get our businesses doing what they should do then our reasons for not supporting them start to diminish. Our guilds set industry standards to raise quality while the relations we are building in Africa will create manufacturing opportunities to drive down cost. Our business development initiatives and Black Commerce Bureau will help make better businesses that we can be proud of and that we can trust. If your level of skepticism has been piqued that’s okay. It’s natural. Right now we are identifying the pieces of the overall solution that we need to handle the problem. As you continue you will see more and you will see how we are putting these pieces together. We are talking about big goals and that causes doubt but the secret is that we are all already working on different parts of the problem. We simply need to recognize that fact and coordinate with each other and bring those pieces together in love, peace, and harmony. That is the Black Lion Society.
By reading this far you are now at LEVEL 2. If you have not joined us officially we welcome you to do so at any time, but please do not feel rushed. You need to be comfortable with this decision and fully understand what you are apart of. This is a membership we take seriously. This is why there are no fees in the Black Lion Society until you reach LEVEL 10. That is when responsibility and accountability begins. Until then, feel free to read, explore, and verify.
