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.
