2015- MY MESSAGE FOR AMERICA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD. I HOPE THAT ALL PEOPLES TAKE HEED. I AM RAS CARDO WHO WROTE- R.A.S.P.E.C.T1

EXCERPT FROM (c) 2015- R.A.S.P.E.C.T1- THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS.

WRITTEN WITH LOVE FOR ALL PEOPLES.

WHEN I WROTE THE ORIGINAL REGGAE PRECEPTS, LYRICS, SLANGS AND INTERPRETATIONS I WAS JUST A YOUTH IN THE POVERTY THAT IS JAMAICA. THE HUMAN CONDITIONS IN THE ENVIRONMENT WAS ALL WE NEEDED TO STUDY. SOME OF US LEARNED FROM IT, WHILE SOME OF US DIDN’T.

THE WORLD TODAY HAS NOT CHANGED MUCH AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED, BUT THIS IS JUST MY FACTUAL OBSERVED OPINION.FOR SURE, IT HAS BECOME MORE EVIL, AND FEARFUL. PEOPLE WILL PANIC AT THE SLIGHTEST SOUND.

SO MUCH MAD PEOPLE, GETTING READY TO EXPLODE.

THE REGGAE, I NAMED AND HELPED TO CREATE WITH THOSE BRETHRENS, MOST OF WHOM HAVE NOW GONE, HAD A MISSION TO ACCOMPLISH. THAT MISSION IS ABOUT HEALING.

TODAY WE HAVE MANY DOCTORS. PREACHERS, PROFESSORS, EXPERTS IN ALL AREAS, BUT NO HEALERS.

SO, I ASK WHO WILL HEAL THE NATIONS? WHAT WILL HEAL THE PEOPLE? WHO WILL BE COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO LEAD?

I CREATED TRENCH TOWN REGGAE WHICH MY STUDENT AND BRETHRENS- PETER TOSH AND BOB MARLEY INTRODUCED IN SONGS TO THE WORLD.

THOSE PEOPLE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY RAN WITH THE MUSIC PART OF IT SINCE IT WAS THE PART WHICH SUITED THEIR OWN SELFISH INTERESTS.THEY STILL DON’T KNOW AND DON’T REALLY CARE ABOUT WHAT REGGAE TRULY IS.

LIKE FOOLS, THEY REMAIN WISE IN THEIR OWN EYES. THE ARROGANCE AND GREED WHICH FILLS THEM WILL CREATE THEIR DEMISE.

THEY STOLE WHAT THEY COULD, RAPED THOSE THAT THEY COULD, AND SENT WHOM THEY COULD TO AN EARLY GRAVE.

YOU WOULD THINK THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A FULL BELLY, BUT NO- GREED HAS OVERCOME THEM.

WE MADE A SONG- “THEM BELLY FULL”- BUT WE HUNGRY. BOB MARLEY TOLD THEM THE TRUTH. THEY TOOK THE CREDITS AND REWARDS EVEN FROM THE TRUE WRITER OF THE SONG.

IF YOU GET THE CHANCE TO VISIT TRENCH TOWN TODAY- I WANT YOU TO TAKE A LOOK, AND TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE.

2015- MAKES IT 53 YEARS SINCE WE LIVED, ROAMED, AND PLAYED IN THE POVERTY THERE. YOU MAY WONDER HOW SOME OF US SURVIVED.

THE CONDITIONS ARE WORSE. AT LEAST THREE GENERATIONS OF YOUTHS LIVES HAS BEEN LOST TO SENSELESS VIOLENCE.

MY REGGAE HAS COME TO AMERICA TO HELP THE YOUTHS.

IN THIS 2015 AMERICA, THE YOUTHS I MEET AND GREET DAILY, ALWAYS COMPLAIN OF BEING BORED- WITH HAVING NOTHING TO DO. WHEN I REASON WITH THEM FURTHER I DISCOVER WHAT SOME OF THE REAL ISSUES ARE THAT’S AFFECTING THEM.

YOU SEE, THEY WILL COME TO ME, AND I LISTEN WITH GENUINE CONCERN. I AM NOT A PASTOR, PSYCHOLOGIST/SOCIOLOGIST/INTERVENTIONALIST/ OR SOME KIND OF BEHAVIORAL THERAPIST.

DON’T GIVE ME ANY TITLES. I DO NOT NEED IT TO LISTEN TO THE CONCERNS OF SOMEONE.

I SEE THE SERIOUS POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES FOR THINGS WHICH DISTURBS THE MINDS OF THE YOUTHS ESCALATING INTO THE DREADED VIOLENCE WE SEE TODAY.

WHILE I DO NOT CONDONE THE ACTS OF THOSE WHO WILL FOSTER HATRED TOWARDS OTHERS AND ACT IN WAYS PREJUDICIAL TO THE DECENCY OF A CIVILIZED SOCIETY, I MUST ALSO DENOUNCE THOSE WHO TAKE IT UPON THEMSELVES TO EXERCISE AND MANIFEST BEHAVIOR WHICH TENDS TO PUT THEM ABOVE THE NORMAL TENETS OF THE RULE OF LAW AND WHICH IF NOT CHECKED WILL ONLY LEAD TO THE VIOLENCE AND UPHEAVAL OF CIVIL DISTURBANCE.

POWER AND INFLUENCE CORRUPTS AND THOSE IN WHOSE HANDS IT MAY FALL WILL EASILY SLIP INTO THE ABYSS TO ENSLAVE OTHERS.

LOOKING AT, AND KNOWING THE HISTORY OF WHAT HAPPENED TO PEOPLE LIKE- BASKETBALL STAR- CHARLES SCOTT-( MY NAME SAKE), FROM CHAPEL HILL NORTH CAROLINA- IN THE EARLY SIXTIES, AND HOW HE WAS DENIED JUSTICE FOR ALL THE WORK HE HAD DONE IN THAT CAPACITY, REMINDS ME THAT AMERICA STILL HAVE A LONG LONG WAY TO GO.

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THE LAWS SANCTIONING SLAVERY WAS CONSIDERED LEGAL UNTIL A WHITE MAN OF CONSCIENCE NAMED -WILLIAM WILBERFORCE IN ENGLAND, AND ANOTHER NAMED- ABRAHAM LINCOLN IN THE USA, DECIDED TO CHANGE ALL THAT.

THESE COURAGEOUS WHITE MEN WERE NOT MUCH LIKED BY THEIR PEERS AFTER THEY TOOK THAT BOLD AND TRUTHFUL STEP OF CONSCIENCE.

AT ONE POINT, I COULD SEE WHERE WE IN AMERICA WERE MOVING AWAY FROM OUR DIVISIVENESS, BUT IT SEEMS THAT WE HAVE YET TO CURE THIS DISEASE.

THE ELECTION OF OUR FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT SEEMS TO HAVE BROUGHT OUT THE WORST IN SOME OF US.

GENTLEMEN/LADIES/YOUTHS OF THIS GREAT LAND- IT IS FOR THOSE WHO NURTURE A HIDDEN AGENDA TO HATE, DECEIVE, STEAL FROM AND TO ENSLAVE OTHERS THAT I MUST MAKE THESE REMARKS.

I HAVE WRITTEN THAT MY REGGAE EDUCATION WILL HEAL THE NATIONS OF THIS EARTH. THIS, I KNOW WILL HAPPEN, WHETHER I AM HERE OR NOT.

LET US ALL, STOP THE MURDERING OF OUR PEOPLES, LET OUR ACTIONS BE TRANSPARENT, AND OUR MOTIVES BE FREE FROM ANY SINISTER OR ULTERIOR INTENTIONS TO MANIPULATE THOSE OF LESSER MINDS TO OUR BENEFIT AND THEIR DETRIMENT. PEACE! (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

2015- WORLD “CRYSTALLIZED FEAR” OF THE ENEMY, AND WHO MAY I SAY IS THE ENEMY?

EXCERPT (c) R.A.S.P.E.C.T1 RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

MEA CULPA, MEA CULPA, MEA MAXIMA CULPA.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HAS SPOKEN.

IN THIS NOW, TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY AS I HAVE CALLED IT, ANYONE CAN BE YOUR ENEMY. YOU MAY KNOW IT, OR YOU MAY NOT. IT COULD BE THOSE WHOM YOU THINK ARE YOUR FRIENDS. IT COULD BE FAMILY.

SO, WHO CAN YOU REALLY TRUST? EACH ONE HAS TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION FOR THEMSELVES..

THIS IS A GLOBAL PROBLEM, AND HAS BEEN A GLOBAL PROPHECY FOR YEARS. MY R.A.S.P.E.C.T1 SPOKE ABOUT IT YEARS AGO. THE MESSENGERS OF THE PROPHESY KNEW THAT THIS DAY AND TIME WOULD COME.

THE WORLD LEADERS KNEW ABOUT IT. IT WAS NO SECRET.

SO, WHY IS EVERYONE SO FEARFUL?

FOR THOSE WHO PRACTICE THE EVILS OF BUILDING INVISIBLE WALLS AND BARRIERS BETWEEN THEMSELVES AND THE ORDINARY MAN, ENFORCED BY FEAR, THEY KNEW THIS DAY WOULD COME.

I HAVE WRITTEN- THE TECHNOLOGY WE CREATE WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE OUR FATE- (c) TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY- RAS CARDO.

THIS, I KNOW IS TRUE.- JAH HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF A SOUND MIND.

THE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN IMAGINING VAIN THINGS FOR A WHILE. NOW THE REALITY OF TRUTH IS UPON US.

ANYONE WHO FEARS AND HATES TRUTH CAN BE YOUR ENEMY. TO YOUR KNOWLEDGE, HAS ANYONE SHOWN YOU HATE BECAUSE OF A TRUTH REVELATION YOU MADE ABOUT THEM?

WHEN I LOOK AT INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF AMERICA, HERE IS WHAT I SEE..

MOST OF THOSE WHO WISH AND DO BAD THINGS TO AMERICA OR COUNTRIES LIKE AMERICA, DO NOT NECESSARILY HATE AMERICA. HERE IS WHAT THEY HATE-

THEY HATE THE FREEDOM THAT IS AMERICA.. HOW MANY REALLY KNOW THIS TRUTH.?

YOU MAY ASK, HOW DO I KNOW THIS? MY ANSWER IS SIMPLE-

YOU HAVE TO HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS. YOU WOULD HAVE TO HAVE WALKED IN THEIR SHOES, FEEL THEIR OWN PAIN AND SORROW, GRIEVE THEIR OWN GRIEFS, WEEP AND WAIL WITH THEM- IN SHORT, DO NOT CREATE A WALL BETWEEN YOU AND THEM.

MOST FEAR THAT AMERICA, AND THEIR COUNTRY DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THEM. NOW THEY HAVE SOCIAL MEDIA TECHNOLOGY ACCESS TO SHARE THEIR PAIN AND SUFFERINGS. EACH HAS BECOME THEIR OWN TYRANT.

WE ARE WHAT WE HAVE BECOME. MAY JAH HELP US ALL. PEACE! (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS.

REGGAE- AT THE BEGINNING, FROM THE BEGINNING. I WAS THERE WITH MY BRETHRENS AND SISTRENS IN TRENCH TOWN. SO MANY TODAY(2015)- CLAIM TO BE -“REGGAE HISTORIANS”. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? IDENTIFY YOURSELVES! SO MANY IMPOSTERS.

RAS CARDO-REGGAE ARK OF THE COVENANT

EXCERPT (c)  RAS CARDO SPEAKS- A REGGAE EDUCATION. THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR HISTORY.

THE TRUTH NEEDS NO APOLOGIES. WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE OR FEAR.

CAVEAT: THIS IS A TIME FOR TRUTH REVELATION ABOUT TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HISTORY. THOSE WHO FEAR THE TRUTH NEED NOT READ ANY FURTHER. THOSE WHO WANT TO HIDE FROM THE TRUTH WILL FIND THAT THERE IS NO PLACE TO RUN.IF YOU WERE NOT IN TRENCH TOWN IN RAS CARDO’S BACKYARD WITH THE REST OF THE COMMUNITY, THEN SAVE YOURSELF THE SCORN OF BEING CALLED AN IMPOSTER, A LIAR, A THIEF, A VAMPIRE, AN OPPORTUNISTIC MERCENARY OF FORTUNE WHO RAPES OTHERS FOR YOUR OWN ENDS.

THE TRUTH IS THIS: YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND SHOWN FOR WHAT YOU ARE IN CAUSING THE DAMAGES TO A CULTURE, A PEOPLE, ALL BECAUSE OF A LIE THAT YOU PERPETRATE AND PERPETUATE. YOU WILL NOT ESCAPE.

REGGAE- AT THE BEGINNING, FROM THE BEGINNING. I WAS THERE WITH MY BRETHRENS AND SISTRENS IN TRENCH TOWN. SO MANY TODAY(2015)- CLAIM TO BE -“REGGAE HISTORIANS”. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? IDENTIFY YOURSELVES! SO MANY IMPOSTERS.

EXCERPT (c)  RAS CARDO SPEAKS- A REGGAE EDUCATION. THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR HISTORY.

THE TRUTH NEEDS NO APOLOGIES. WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE OR FEAR.

CAVEAT: THIS IS A TIME FOR TRUTH REVELATION ABOUT TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HISTORY. THOSE WHO FEAR THE TRUTH NEED NOT READ ANY FURTHER. THOSE WHO WANT TO HIDE FROM THE TRUTH WILL FIND THAT THERE IS NO PLACE TO RUN.IF YOU WERE NOT IN TRENCH TOWN IN RAS CARDO’S BACKYARD WITH THE REST OF THE COMMUNITY, THEN SAVE YOURSELF THE SCORN OF BEING CALLED AN IMPOSTER, A LIAR, A THIEF, A VAMPIRE, AN OPPORTUNISTIC MERCENARY OF FORTUNE WHO RAPES OTHERS FOR YOUR OWN ENDS.

THE TRUTH IS THIS: YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND SHOWN FOR WHAT YOU ARE IN CAUSING THE DAMAGES TO A CULTURE, A PEOPLE, ALL BECAUSE OF A LIE THAT YOU PERPETRATE AND PERPETUATE. YOU WILL NOT ESCAPE.

NOW, THE REGGAE HISTORY REPORTED BY ALL THESE IMPOSTERS OVER THE YEARS HAS MISLEAD A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO FAIL TO ASCERTAIN THE TRUTH.

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU SEEN WRITING ABOUT SLAVERY?

HOW MANY WHO WRITE WERE THERE AT THE TIME WHEN SLAVERY WENT DOWN?

THOSE WHO WERE NOT PRESENT AT THE TIME, WHERE DO THEY GET THEIR HISTORY AND FROM WHOM?

ARE YOU SOMEONE WHO WILL GIVE A DENTIST THE PERMISSION TO PERFORM YOUR HEART SURGERY? I HOPE YOU GET THE POINT.

UN FORTUNATELY, THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO WOULD. THE ILL- INFORMED. THE FOLLOW THE LEADER. THOSE WHO CARE NOT ABOUT TRUTH. THESE ARE SITTING DUCKS FOR THE CON MAN.

WELL, REGGAE HISTORY IS NOT LIKE THAT. HERE IS ONE REASON WHY-

THERE ARE A FEW PEOPLE, MYSELF INCLUDED WHO ARE STILL HERE, IN THE FLESH.THESE ARE THE PEOPLE THE IMPOSTERS SKILLFULLY TRY TO AVOID.

THIS IS NOW -2015- CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT HARM IT WOULD DO TO THEIR NEFARIOUS EMPIRE OF LIES AND DECEIT IF THE TRUTH WAS TO BE TOLD BY THOSE WHO WERE THERE IN MY 1962 TRENCH TOWN YARD.?

WELL, JUST AS YOU READ THIS, NEXT TIME YOU READ SOMETHING FROM THOSE WHO WRITE ABOUT US AND OUR HISTORY, ASK YOURSELF- IS THIS TRUE? HOW DID THIS PERSON GET THIS? CAN I RELY ON THIS FOR THE TRUTH?

WAS THIS PERSON IN TRENCH TOWN WITH RAS CARDO AND HIS COMMUNITY?

YOU MUST ALSO KEEP THIS IN MIND. REGGAE DID NOT BEGIN WITH MUSIC.THERE IS SO MUCH YOU NEED TO KNOW, NOT YET REVEALED. IN TIME, I WILL.

REGGAE IS REALLY NOT ABOUT MUSIC. MUSIC CARRIES ITS MESSAGES.

I CREATED AND NAMED IT WITH MY BRETHRENS IN MY BACKYARD IN TRENCH TOWN.

I WAS AT THE BEGINNING FROM THE BEGINNING.

BUT, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT. SEEK THE TRUTH.

SO, WHY ARE THEY WRITING AND SELLING YOU STUFF ABOUT SOMETHING THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT?

ASK YOURSELF- WHY AM I NOT SEEKING THE TRUTH BEFORE I SPEND MY MONEY?

THEY GOT RID OF THOSE WHOM THEY FELT STOOD IN THE WAY OF THEIR NEFARIOUS EMPIRE SCHEMES.

BUT THE TRUTH STILL REMAINS. THE TRUE HISTORY IS MUCH ALIVE, BUT THEY WILL NEVER HAVE IT.

THE NEXT TIME THEY TRY TO CLOUD YOUR BRAIN WITH MUSIC AND PHONY CHRONOLOGICAL SCHEMES TRYING TO ESTABLISH A MUSICAL TIME LINE OF REGGAE HISTORY- I HOPE YOU KNOW JUST WHAT TO ASK THEM.

THIS IS WRITTEN, IN TRUTH TO PUT YOU ON NOTICE AS TO THOSE WHO WILL CONTINUE TO DECEIVE AND MISLEAD OTHERS AS TO THE TRUE HISTORY AND LIVITY OF OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE AND THE MUSIC WHICH BEARS ITS NAME AND CARRIES ITS MESSAGES TO THE PEOPLE.

THOSE WHO SEEK MORE TRUTH SHOULD FEEL FREE TO CONTACT I AND I AT THIS BLOG, OR WHERE RAS CARDO APPEARS ONLINE. PEACE! (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. A REGGAE EDUCATION. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

SO MUCH TROUBLE IN THE WORLD- ONE REASON, MANY OF THE POOR NOW TAKING NOTICE OF THE -GREAT DIVIDE- AND INEQUITIES WHICH HAS EXISTED FOR CENTURIES.HOPELESSNESS SETS IN, AND ANGER TURNS TO VIOLENCE AND HATE.

EXCERPT FROM(c) R.A.S.P.E.C.T1

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND AN OPEN MIND AND HEART.

HOLD ON, FOR JUST A MINUTE, BEFORE YOU RUSH TO BEING JUDGMENTAL AS TO THE TRUTHS I AM ABOUT TO SHARE.

NO ONE CAN DENY THE FACTS THAT THERE IS GROSS DIVIDE IN THE WORLD TODAY WHICH IS DEFINITELY GETTING MUCH WIDER. EVEN AS I SPEAK.

EVIL HAS ALWAYS BEEN AROUND FROM TIME IMMEMORIAL, HOWEVER THE KINDS OF EVIL WE ARE WITNESSING TODAY, MAKES THOSE OF THE PAST LOOK TRIVIAL, AS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.

I HAVE SAID THAT EVIL HAS TAKEN ON A NEW TWIST, NEVER BEFORE SEEN.

IN THE PAST, MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE HOPED THAT THINGS WOULD GET MUCH BETTER AS THEY TOIL AND STRUGGLE FROM PAY CHECK TO PAY CHECK.

THOSE THAT GOVERN HAVE LEFT MOST WITH EMPTY PROMISES, WHILE THEIR POCKETS ARE FULL AND SECURE. THE YOUTHS WHO HAVE SEEN THEIR PARENTS HOPED FOR A BETTER DAY WHICH NEVER CAME WILL NO LONGER WAIT FOR IT TO COME.

NO ONE CAN DENY THE TRUTH THAT THE GAP BETWEEN THE RICH AND AFFLUENT AND THE POOR HAS GOTTEN MUCH WIDER.

THE FEW WHO ARE RICH AND FLAUNT IT IN THE FACE OF THE YOUTHS ONLY FAN THE FLAMES OF ANXIETY AND ANGER WHICH KEEPS THOSE WHO HAVE NOTHING TO NOW FOCUS ON THOSE WHO HAVE SOMETHING.

THERE WAS A TIME,. NOT LONG AGO, WHEN SOME WHO ARE POOR COULD HOPE TO LIVE TO SEE A BRIGHTER DAY. NOW THEY DO NOT SEE A BRIGHTER DAY, AND WISH TO TAKE EVERYONE WITH THEM TO A DARKER ONE.

YOU MAY ASK, HOW DO I KNOW ALL THIS? IT HAS BEEN NO SECRET TO THOSE WHO COULD SEE IT COMING FOR YEARS PAST.

TODAY, MORE THAN EVER, YOU HAVE MORE YOUTHS GRADUATING FROM COLLEGES, SMART AS THEY ARE, WHO CANNOT FIND JOBS TO PLAN A “BETTER LIFE”.

THESE ARE NOT PEOPLE WHO WILL REMAIN SILENT AND SUFFER THE WAY THEIR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS OF THE -“SILENT GENERATION” DID.

WE HAVE FED THEM. WE HAVE TRAINED THEM. WE HAVE TOLD THEM THE SKY IS THE LIMIT. WE HAVE TOLD THEM- BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE, AND MOST TRAGIC OF ALL-

WE HAVE DISAPPOINTED AND DECEIVED THEM. FOR NOW WE CANNOT FILL THE VOID IN THE FALSE PROMISES WE HAVE MADE TO THEM.

WE NEVER TAUGHT THEM HOW TO HANDLE REJECTION, FAILURE, PATIENCE, AND LONG SUFFERING.

PLEASE ALLOW ME TO SHARE THIS STATEMENT WITH YOU FROM MY WISE MOTHER- MAMA SCOTT. SHE TOLD ME-

” PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE, BUT TOO MUCH CAN AND WILL HURT YOU.

NEVER A DAY PASSES THAT I DO NOT SEE THE TRUTHS IN ALL HER WISE SAYINGS.

TODAY WE SEE THE HURT WHICH CAUSES THE ANGER IN THOSE WHO HAVE NOT THE PATIENCE TO ENDURE IT.

THEY SEE THE INEQUITIES WHICH TRANSLATES INTO INJUSTICE IN SYSTEMS WHICH CARE NOT TO  LISTEN TO THE CRIES OF THE POOR WHO SUFFER.

THOSE WHO CARE NOT TO PRACTICE THE PRECEPTS OF NON- VIOLENCE WILL NOT LISTEN TO ANYONE AT THIS POINT.

FOR THOSE WHO THINK THAT KILLING EACH OTHER IS THE SOLUTION, I WOULD ASK YOU TO TAKE A REALITY CHECK.. THIS WILL NEVER END THE CONFLICT. IT CAN NEVER BE THE SOLUTION.

YOU WOULD BE AMAZED TO KNOW THAT MANY WHO KILL HAVE A GOOD SIDE. THE KEY IS TO FIND THAT GOOD SIDE AND USE IT TO TURN THEM AROUND.

I AM IN NO WAY CONDONING THE WRONGS THEY DO TO OTHERS, AND STAND FULLY CONVINCED THAT THEY SHOULD  PAY THE PRICE FOR THEIR WILFUL HURT TO OTHERS.

SO, IN THIS NOW TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY AS I HAVE PREDICTED, EVERYONE HAS BECOME A TYRANT.

SOCIAL MEDIA HAS ENABLED ANYONE TO WRITE THEIR OWN MANIFESTO, AND TO GO OUT IN A BLAZE OF GLORY.

THE STRUGGLE IS NOT ABOUT RELIGION OR THE COLOR OR ETHNICITY OF ANYONE.

IT GOES MUCH DEEPER THAN ALL THAT. IT CENTERS AROUND THE EROSION OF- TRUST.

THINK ABOUT ALL THIS FOR A WHILE, AND YOU WILL SEE THE TRUTH.

THIS IS WHAT I MEAN BY -R.A.S.P.E.C.T1.

REGGAE TRUTH SAYS- ” AND THY ENEMY SHALL BE FOUND LIARS UNTO THEE, AND THOU SHALL TREAD UPON THEIR HIGH PLACES”- DEUT.33 : 27. SCHOOLS OF EVIL EVERYWHERE.

EXCERPT (c)  R.A.S.P.E.C.T1  REVEALS THE TRUTHS.

“Though believest that that there is one GOD, the devil also believe, and tremble”

“THE HEARTS OF MEN IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS, AND DESPERATELY WICKED. WHO CAN KNOW IT?”

WE LIVE IN A TIME OF FEAR, AND MOST PEOPLE  HAVE BECOME SO EMOTIONALLY, PHYSICALLY, AND SPIRITUALLY CRYSTALLIZED TO THE POINT OF INERTIA.

WE SEE THE MANIFESTATIONS OF EVIL FORCES TRYING TO TAKE FULL CONTROL, OVER ALL THINGS.

BE NOT AFRAID, FOR THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY HAS TOLD US THAT THIS DAY WOULD COME.

FOR GOD  HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF POWER, AND LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND

HE HAS HIS EYES UPON ALL THEIR WAYS, AND THEIR EVILS ARE NOT HID FROM HIS FACE.

BE NOT PROUD, FOR THE LORD GOD HATH SPOKEN EVEN UNTO THE WICKED.

CAN THE ETHIOPIAN CHANGE THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN, OR THE LEOPARD HIS SPOTS?

THEN MAY YE ALSO DO GOOD  THAT ARE ACCUSTOMED TO DO EVIL.

JAH KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD, AND BE CONTENT WITH WHAT JAH HAS PROVIDED FOR YOU IN THIS TIME. FOR HE THAT HATH BEGIN A GOOD WORK IN YOU WILL ALSO BRING IT TO COMPLETION.

FRET NOT THYSELF BECAUSE OF EVIL DOERS NEITHER BE THOU ENVIOUS OF THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY, FOR SOON THEY WILL BE CUT OFF AND WHITHER LIKE GRASS.

R.A.S.P.E.C.T1 IN THIS TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY. THE YOUTHS ARE ANGRY. THE WOLRD IS IN TROUBLE. MY REGGAE HAS BEEN SENDING THE MESSAGES FOR THE PAST 53 YEARS TO DATE. IT IS NOW A MATTER OF EXTREME URGENCY- BUT WHO REALLY CARES TO SPEAK THE TRUTH?

EXCERPT FROM (c) R.A.S.P.E.C.T1- BOOK WRITTEN BY RAS CARDO REGGAE

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE:

THE WORLD HAS BEEN TROUBLED FOR MANY , MANY YEARS, BUT IN THIS TIME ITS MAGNITUDE OF TROUBLES HAS RISEN EXPONENTIALLY.

WE ARE NOW IN 2015. REGGAE IS 53 YEARS STRONG IN THE TRUTH.

IF THE WEATHER COULD BE USED AS A BAROMETRIC PREDICTOR OF WHAT IS TO COME, THEN I MUST SAY THAT THERE ARE TREACHEROUS AND PERILOUS TIMES AHEAD FOR ALL OF US.

YEARS AGO WHEN I WROTE AND COINED THE TERMS-(c)- TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY, and (c) R.A.S.P.E.C.T1, I ENVISIONED A TIME AND SITUATION WHEN WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY BEFORE OUR VERY EYES WOULD TAKE PLACE.

I ALSO CHANGED A WORD WHICH CHANGED A CULTURE ENABLING WOMEN TO SEE THEMSELVES AS WORTHY OF RESPECT AND DIGNITY.

I CHANGED- STREGGAE INTO REGGAE IN 1962, AND CREATED- REGGAE OPERA IN 1964.

I DO NOT SEE MYSELF AS POSSESSING ANY SPECIAL POWERS OF CLAIRVOYANCE.

BUT WHAT I DO KNOW AS ABSOLUTE TRUTH  IS THIS:- MY LATE, GREAT MOTHER-MAMA SCOTT HAD REMARKABLE POWERS OF DISCERNMENT.

EACH AND EVERY TIME SHE WOULD WARN US ABOUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN- IT DID OCCUR LIKE CLOCK WORK ACCURACY. SHE NEVER SKIPPED A BEAT IN TRUTH.

TODAY, SHE IS NO LONGER WITH US, BUT OVER THE YEARS I HAVE SEEN IN THE MANIFESTATIONS OF MY LIFE, SITUATIONS WHICH GIVES ME AN INNER UNEXPLAINABLE FEELING OF TRUTH WHICH ALWAYS PROVED TO BE REVEALED IN TRUTH.

I HAVE SHARED THIS WITH MANY OVER THE YEARS, NEVER NEEDING A CRYSTAL BALL OR CHARGING SOMEONE A FEE FOR MY SHARING.

WHAT I ALSO KNOW IS TRUTH COMES FROM THE ALMIGHTY GOD OF CREATION WHO CHOOSES CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS TO DELIVER HIS MESSAGES TO THE PEOPLE.

I KNOW, THAT I AM A MESSENGER. I KNEW THAT WHEN I NAMED AND HELPED TO CREATE REGGAE IN MY TRENCH TOWN YARD IN 1962 TO DELIVER THE MESSAGES OF THE SUFFERINGS OF THE PEOPLE TO THE WORLD, THAT IT WOULD DO JUST THAT, AND MORE.

TRENCH TOWN REGGAE- R.A.S.P.E.C.T!- AND OTHER PROPHETIC WRITINGS AND MESSAGES COMES FROM THE ALMIGHTY THROUGH ME TO, AND FOR THE REDEMPTION OF THE PEOPLE.

THE WORLD IS AT A MOST VULNERABLE AND PERILOUS CROSS- ROADS. THE YOUTHS ARE ANGRY- MOST BLAME THE SYSTEMS WHICH THEY FEEL HAS CAUSED THEM TO FEEL SO TRAPPED, HOPELESS, AND DIRECTIONLESS.

YOU CAN LOOK ALMOST ANYWHERE ON THE GLOBE TODAY AND SEE MASSIVE UNREST, CHIEFLY AMONG YOUNG PEOPLE. IN CHINA, EUROPE, AFRICA, THE MIDDLE EAST. JUST TAKE A LOOK, EVEN IN THE WEST.

THE MOST PROFOUND QUESTIONS WHICH THOSE WHO SHOULD BE LEADERS IN THE SYSTEM FAIL TO ASK IS THIS:

WHO AND WHAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE AFFLICTIONS BEFALLING THESE ANGRY YOUTHS, OUR OWN FLESH AND BLOOD, OUR OWN CHILDREN?

WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO MAKE THEM SO ANGRY AT US , THAT NOW THEY WANT TO DESTROY US AND END THEIR LIVES?

WHAT IS IT WITHIN THE BELLY OF THE BEAST THAT HAS NOW REGURGITATED WITH SUCH MASSIVE PROJECTILE VOMITING?.

TEENAGE SUICIDES RISES EXPONENTIALLY, THE JOBLESS ECONOMY, A FRAGMENTED FAMILY, A SYSTEM TOO BUSY TO LISTEN TO THE CRIES OF THE YOUTHS, SO IMPERSONAL TO CARE. THIS IS GLOBAL.

ARE WE TOO LATE TO HAVE CHECKS AND BALANCES ON THESE SYSTEMIC FAILURES?

ARE WE BLAMELESS AS TO CAUSATION?

WHERE IS THE FREEDOM THAT WE SEEK AND SO CHERISH?

MY REGGAE HAS SPOKEN ABOUT THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT FREEDOM TO PREVAIL

THERE ARE AVENGING SCHOOLS OF EVIL NOW EVERYWHERE, SUPPORTED BY SOME OF THE RICH AND POWERFUL. DECEIT AND DISTRACTION IS OFTEN THEIR MODUS OPERANDI.

SOME BELIEVE IT IS A RADICALIZATION. I MUST HOWEVER BEG TO DIFFER, SINCE MY EXPERIENCE OF LISTENING TO THE CONCERNS OF YOUTHS OVER THE YEARS HAS SHOWN ME OTHERWISE.

IT IS A MIND-SET WHICH COULD BE CHANGED SURPRISINGLY EASILY-

WITH LOVE, AND JUST LISTENING WITH A COMPASSIONATE HEART. THIS MUST BE DONE WITH TRUTH. THIS IS WHAT MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE DOES TO HELP THE PEOPLE.

THIS IS WHY I SAY- A REGGAE EDUCATION FOR A HEALING OF THE NATIONS.

MUSIC HAS THE POWERS TO MOVE A SAVAGE BEAST AND TO HEAL A RUPTURED SOUL. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT MY REGGAE WILL DO FOR THE PEOPLE. IT IS GENUINE AND REAL WITH THE TRUTH.

THE GENERATIONAL DIVIDE AND INEQUITIES, AND INJUSTICES IN ANY SYSTEM WILL ALMOST ALWAYS GIVE RISE TO THOSE WHO BECOME HOPELESS AND SEEK TO HARM THOSE THEY FEEL ARE RESPONSIBLE.

YOU CANNOT PULL ON A LION’S TAIL AND THINK THAT THE LION WILL LOOK AT YOU AND SMILE.

MY PARENTS ALWAYS TOLD US: BE RESPECTFUL AND CARING OF OTHERS- BECAUSE WHAT MAY BE SEEN AS A JOKE TO YOU, MAY BE SEEN AS DEATH TO ANOTHER .

MY MOTHER WAS RIGHT AND DISCERNING, AND PROPHETIC. SHE HAS LEFT SOME OF THAT WITH ME. SHE TOO, TAUGHT BOB MARLEY, JOE HIGGS AND OTHERS A LOT.
