‘Intoxicating Freedom, Gripping Fear’: Mumia Abu-Jamal On Life As a Black Panther

A brilliant, eloquent, thoughtful man like Mumia Abu-Jamal languishes on death row while a racist, narcissistic sexual predator/economic terrorist resides in the White House corrupting what’s left of a crumbling democracy, furthering the insidious agendas of corporate control and white supremacy, increasing destruction of the environment, creating international tensions that could lead to war, dividing the U.S. population to a level which causes people to fear civil war, continues corporate welfare while helping wealthy business executives financially rape the rest of us and put more families in the streets…

Do I need to continue?

Law, uh, I mean Order Enforcement powers started a war on the Black Panther Party in the late 1960s when they saw people who looked and thought differently than they creating a place where the religion of Capitalism wasn’t needed. They were showing us that you can feed, clothe, educate and provide decent lives for ALL chilldren – not just “our” children.

They tried to show us a different way – one in which compassion counted and profiting on misery is accepted as the horrible crime it is everywhere outside the self-deceived world of Capitalism.

The business executives currently running the U.S. are parasites. Mumia Abu-Jamal is a hero. Let’s regain compassion, justice, integrity and truth.

  1. That racist, narcissistic sexual predator/economic terrorist residing in the White House is standing on very thin ice right now.

  2. If justice is more than merely a word in the dictionary that thin ice will break and swallow as many sociopaths as possible, taking them down into the murky waters of imprisonment and shame (though some obviously are devoid of the human trait of shame).

    Thanks for the comment.

  3. I believe the USA will go down in history as the most effective empire in suppressing dissent.

  4. horrible truths.
    may we all experience
    moments of happiness
    despite unfavorable conditions.
