Liberate Your Mind with the Empowering Wisdom of Hip-Hop – Part 2

This particular post is dedicated to my good friend, Mr Blobby, who is a fellow Truth-Seeker.

We are both on a Mission Impossible to avoid being distracted by the very tools of propaganda wielded by those in power, and to relieve our conditioned minds so that it has the freedom to perceive the truth which has been conveniently obscured from our view up to now.

So why don’t you join us?

Your mission should you choose to accept it, is to:

  • turn off the TV and radio
  • dispose of the newspapers
  • question everything you have been told and taught to be true
  • inquire for yourself to discern what the truth may be – in other words, educate yourselves
  • Seek and gain the practical and beneficial knowledge that can actually help you to become conscious beings, self-reliant, self-determined, pragmatic and wise
  • Look within yourselves for the true answers towards achieving your aims in life – the truth and wisdom is within you to use to your advantage
  • Take responsibility for your own health, income, and general well-being

This illusory existence that has been conditioned into all our minds must be dealt with by us making an effort to destroy these false images which are destroying us – so emancipate yourselves and see what is.

Once we can see, there then maybe a realistic possibility that we can make this world a paradise that it’s capable of becoming – and that’s no frivolous statement that I’m making here…it can be done…it will be done.

This message will self-destruct in five seconds…

Fight The Power!

The following self-empowering song by Public Enemy provides us with some inspiration towards liberating ourselves from a system of deception and who, unbeknown to the masses, have power over our minds…The Truth shall set us free!

Public Enemy – “Fight the Power!” Lyrics

1989 the number another summer (get down)
Sound of the funky drummer
Music hittin’ your heart cause I know you got sould
(Brothers and sisters hey)
Listen if you’re missin’ y’all
Swingin’ while I’m singin’
Givin’ whatcha gettin’
Knowin’ what I know
While the Black bands sweatin’
And the rhythm rhymes rollin’
Got to give us what we want
Gotta give us what we need
Our freedom of speech is freedom or death
We got to fight the powers that be
Lemme hear you say
Fight the power

Chorus

As the rhythm designed to bounce
What counts is that the rhymes
Designed to fill your mind
Now that you’ve realized the prides arrived
We got to pump the stuff to make us tough
from the heart
It’s a start, a work of art
To revolutionize make a change nothin’s strange
People, people we are the same
No we’re not the same
Cause we don’t know the game
What we need is awareness, we can’t get careless
You say what is this?
My beloved lets get down to business
Mental self defensive fitness
(Yo) bum rush the show
You gotta go for what you know
Make everybody see, in order to fight the powers that be
Lemme hear you say…
Fight the Power

Chorus

Elvis was a hero to most
But he never meant —- to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain
Mother—- him and John Wayne
Cause I’m Black and I’m proud
I’m ready and hyped plus I’m amped
Most of my heroes don’t appear on no stamps
Sample a look back you look and find
Nothing but rednecks for 400 years if you check
Don’t worry be happy
Was a number one jam
Damn if I say it you can slap me right here
(Get it) lets get this party started right
Right on, c’mon
What we got to say
Power to the people no delay
To make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be

(Fight the Power)

  1. Great advice! Personally, I haven’t watched TV or read a paper in over 30 years. Don’t need all those words and images stored in my head.

    “I haven’t watched TV or read a paper in over 30 years”

    Damn! I wish I had your dedication. I do watch the odd TV of the sporting (Football and Boxing) variety, but I mostly use it to view any thought provoking documentaries that I happen to have on DVD.

  3. The mission here describes my life perfectly.
    Except I use the Internet all the time.
    I believe only the general outline of what I read or see and use my own life experiences and commonsense to fill in the rest.
    I don’t get newspapers or magazines. Nor do I use the telephone or have a cellphone.
    I have only talked to 4 people since Christmas – all were a waste of my time.
    I live on less than 500 a month and at 69 have not applied for a pension because I don’t want charity.

    Welcome aboard, Mr Grumpy, and I totally respect your frugality and your self-reliance.

    I also agree with you regarding the use of common sense and experience to guide our life with.

    Unfortunately, not many people have common sense because they are too bogged down with useless accumulated knowledge, or pursuing the latest celebrity gossip.

    I can see why you have chosen to have as few people in your company as possible…my best friends will always be myself and the odd author that writes with some sense.

  5. I just love your desire for and dedication to the ‘truth’, which to me is reflected in the measure of happiness and freedom one feels.

    Your Mission list is a great one. I more or less already practise most but I do love documentaries and some English series (mainly for the scenery and architecture :)). As for the news, I choose my own sources on the internet if and when I’m interested.

  6. Jason Cooper says:

    Thanks, TB.

    Nothing wrong with the odd thought-provoking documentary here and there, but I can sometimes suffer from information (or could be disinformation for all I know) overload through trying to gather as much untaught (hidden) knowledge as possible.

    I then try to use the knowledge gained to filter out the crap that my mind has been conditioned with, whilst at the same time trying to get ever closer to what we call “Truth”.

    Maybe I should just start with myself, because as Descarte once said, “I think, therefore I am” – which is perhaps the only truthful thing I can attest to in this mysterious existence.
