It is time to build. The principle is 25% deconstruct and 75% build what we want to replace. I have a vision about what we can be and do, but in order to make that a reality we need to have resources to accomplish it. What better way to build that capital than to offer something in return. Protests and opposition is important, vital in fact, but we must also be in the process of creating what we want to replace the things that cause so much harm to the people. For example, building a closed-loop system / community wherein we fund and own our own businesses, that are environmentally and socially sustainable that we can hire and work with our own people, instituting our own methods of conflict resolution and beginning the process of healing from historical trauma.
Our People are BEAUTIFUL! Our People are POWERFUL! The essence of our power and the urgency for the need to use that power are laid out in this album.
