Circle (C³)

“Revolution begins with the self, in the self” – Toni Cade Bambara

“Education & Philosophy are Cultural Experiences” – Dr. Clyde Winters

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture, is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Mosiah Garvey

A Matter of Culture

Governance of economic systems results from the power, force, and overarching culture of the dominant segments of a society. We should take lessons from some of the harmonious, peaceful, advanced, and highly civilized societies which operated for milenea.

Sharing economies, and communal systems that produce no synthetic or socially designed poverty should be studied. We have ancestors who synchronized their ethics through spiritual math and science. The systems they designed centered around natural time and cosmic order.

These African ‘ways of knowing’ are still active and lie dormant in many of us. In C3 our work will be to recover, stimulate, and organize our ancestral memory and to activate certain epigenetic expressions of DNA to help us solve governance problems and build societies that rapidly advance the quality of life for the masses.

In times of peace and abundance, this work helps us to advance in all aspects of quality of life, stewardship, and character. In times of war and turmoil, ancestral memory provides a mega database of lessons notes to help us fight survive and secure our community.

Anti-Human Culture

Due to an anti-human culture attaining outsized power over the past 500 years, our present existence has been under the control and command of a global colonial system now headquartered in the “United States”.

Western Eurasian forces separated many African descendant people from our governance systems constituted by various languages, rites of passage, education systems, technology, philosophy, cosmology, high science, secret societies, and spiritual practices.

Colonialism, enslavement, and racial-caste produced the current genocidal pogroms of mass-incarceration (re-enslavement), maternal mortality, ghettos, economic denial, low wages, student loan debt, police brutality, judicial disparities, deportation, white class interests, medical neglect, under funded schools, food deserts, school to prison pipeline etc.

As Africans born into a global system where we have been shaped, programmed, and controlled by Colonial (anti-human) institutions, mechanisms, and forces, it is our duty to breakout of the Eurocentric patterns–which have distorted and diminished our thinking.

Our Space

C3 is a space designed build revolutionary consciousness and calibrate our collective psyche to standards that increase our collective standard of life and protect us from all colonial forces.

Transformation is a rigorous process. This initiation will produce a reliable foundation to develop our own internal economic and political forces. Our forces can then move thru any external systems as necessary to advance our interests.

Mind controls muscle. It is imperative that we get our ‘collective mind right’ and free ourselves from colonial rule, and create a much more enjoyable existence for our people and all sincere souls who enter our Circle.

A Few Descriptions

Just Societies are marked by balanced male and female power structures, governed by a culture of nurturing and considerate stewardship. The Stewardship Soul is a character based scientific model which we will use to cleanse our system of analysis. Just societies are judged on their level of power balance, as well as their impact on the surrounding world(s).

Unjust Societies revolve around cultures of Cruel Domination which has been globalized thru the colonial model.

These cultures have historical patterns marked by colonization, genocide, and ecological devastation. Even with a surplus of resources, these governing structures manufacture food deserts, ghettos, poor healthcare access, contaminated water, racial caste, discrimination, homelessness, illiteracy, labor exploitation. Military structures are used to steal and pillage resources, and lopsided distribution ensure benefits are enjoyed by a small ruling and managerial class, while quality of life for the majority of the people deteriorates.

The Aryan (‘Western’) Model

A multi-nation criminal collaboration caused the largest African Holocaust (known as the transatlantic slave trade) and tragically resulted in colonial domination of most of the planet. Race was created by these western Eurasians in order to easily differentiate their victims by phenotype, and automate their assaults via racial-caste social orders.

This global nightmare began to peak when the U.S. (a settler-colony of Britain) dropped nuclear bombs on entire non-combatant, innocent populations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those strikes were done even though the Japanese government was set to surrender. This highlights the historic characteristics of colonial culture and the governing structures of Cruel Domination. Control and cruelty are not just the means–more often than not, it’s also the point!

Racism (White Supremacy) is a Total System

The colonial multi-century African holocaust was carefully plotted by the governing bodies of the Vatican, Portugual, Spain, Britain etc. Race was a political construct formalized in the British colonies in the 1600’s. Skin pigmentation was selected because it made it easier to target African and indigenous peoples using asymmetrical warfare. This strategy spread like wildfire through the governing cultures of western Eurasia (Spain, France, the British, Dutch, Swiss, Swedes, Italians etc.). Eventually the core power structure of these barbarians consolidated heavily within the pan-European settler-project called the United States after World War II (1945). 

Racism is a sophisticated program which extends, far beyond negative sentiment and personal bigotry, into every aspect of governance. It is the organized political logic of all colonial governments! Its citizens are baptized into the racial caste (see any birth certificate in the U.S.) and the net effect keeps controlling power within institutions dominated by elite white political interests.

“…racism (white supremacy) is as follows: the local and global power system structured and maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined; this system consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action and emotional response, as conducted simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex, and war)” – Dr. Frances Cress Welsing

“Racism is a malleable, effective, multi-tool of colonialism that can only be broken through a revolutionary process.” – Terrill Gyasi Currington

Indomitable Spirit

Black people in Haiti completely overthrew the French enslavement government and militaries during the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804 CE). This caused a critical rupture of  chattel-enslavement in the Americas which continued to reverberate throughout  Jamaica, Cuba, Mexico and the U.S. 

Maroons forced Britain, France, and Spain to retreat from their cherished death camps, with Mexico and the U.S. suffering the loss of chattel enslavement due to powerful African revolts. As the British empire began to utterly implode during the European World Wars, the U.S. was able to convert its ill-gotten gains (labor stolen from Black people; land stolen from indigenous peoples) into a fully reconstructed (13th, 14th, 15th Amendment) apartheid race-state. Africans continued to organize defense and freedom fighting forces internationally and it resulted in the Civil Rights concessions of the 1950’s and 60’s. 

Africans in the U.S. have not yet overthrown the systems and people which constitute their historic opprestion; but a growing number continue to rise toward revolutionary consciousness.

Rebuilding from Our Roots

The purpose of building C3 is layered: 

A) Begin to function as Just Societies by absorbing, and embodying, the best parts of our historical, cultural, genetic, metaphysical, and ancestral database(s). Follow the guide of the Stewardship Soul.

B) Build momentum to destroy the institutions and machinery of Cruel Domination and Colonialism.

C) Develop economic projects and launch recruiting teams to build C3 to strengthen the force, scope, and scale of our healing and security projects. Quality housing, healthy food-networks, worker co-ops, quality healthcare as a right, childcare, mental-health, transportation, community safety, and means of production in the direct control of the masses, are the building block projects that will lay the initial course of our internal politics.

D) Adapt best practices from our studies to our modern Black culture(s) to innovate a just society based on stewardship, kindness, high-science, power balance, consensus, civil character, and honor.

The Circle

The Circle is an African methodology and governance structure which has an honor system but no hierarchy. We learn together. We defer to whoever embodies Wisdom at any moment. We honor our elders (they are closer to our ancestors). Elders respect and honor the younger (youth are extensions of them). Our ancestors will guide us all (they serve from a higher perspective). We honor our ancestors and pour libation in honor of their experience and guidance from a higher frequency.

C3 will eventually give us the foundation to form a powerful, internal, economic and political body centered around consensus. We will become a people which asserts our position, demands, and requests with the muscle pre-assembled to secure our projects. 

In the Circle we all participate, learn, change, and transform. The circle consists of 5 Rounds of study. Prepare to read 30 pages a day. Break it up into smaller blocks if helpful (i.e. 15 pages twice a day). Read more if you can, but the objective is to be steady and consistent. This will work out to approx. 900 pages a month. Be patient. Commit to the process.

Support Black Institutions

The books in the following section will be used to germinate our Afrocentric study. These include classics and master works which have obliterated Eurocentric lies and have added to the monumental contributions of Black peoples to world history. The order in which they are assembled has a historical timeline rhythm. Our first expression of collective economics is to purchase the books for this course from Black publishers and dealers.
