Listen Siblings, I come in peace,
“It is certain that dependence is poverty is slavery. But all is according the Creator’s justice. So, can we say that dependence, poverty, and slavery are just?” — Knobeco
One of the most exciting aspects of international organization are the people with whom one can interact. I have an assortment of pleasurable contacts, and hope to include you amongst them, but Knobeco is amongst the most unforgettable. He’s very charitable, very well-read and very, very loyal. In the past week, he approached me with the above question and he and I had a time delving into the wisdom of our ancestors in order to flesh out first the question of justice then the mission of the African Blood Siblings. Read our conversation and Write to help create Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Africans through African Blood Siblings Community Centers. When you Rally for such justice, we can have Prosperous, Independent, African Communities at home and abroad. This post will have the highlighting tradition.

What is Responsibility?
By Onitaset Kumat
Knobeco: Em Hotep (I come in peace.) It is certain that dependence is poverty is slavery. But all is according the Creator’s justice. So, can we say that dependence, poverty, and slavery are just?
Onitaset Kumat: Very interesting question, Knobeco. Hotep (Peace.) Do you think that it is true advice to “Always watch and follow nature”?
Knobeco: It is from Wa’set: Where our Ancestors recorded their wisdom. I would hope so.
Onitaset Kumat: Then supposing we immersed ourselves into a visit upon nature. Could we there see Wildebeests?
Knobeco: Very much so. You were once a Wildebeest yourself, Onitaset Kumat.
Onitaset Kumat: Or it was a Fable. But wouldn’t you say that as all is according the Creator’s justice, the Wildebeest lives by the Creator’s justice?
Knobeco: Very naturally.
Onitaset Kumat: And isn’t it the Wildebeest’s justice to hide from the Crocodile?
Onitasat Kumat: Similarly, as all is according the Creator’s justice, and as we observe the Crocodile seeking the Wildebeest, can not it be stated that the Crocodile lives by the Creator’s justice too?
Knobeco: We would need to.
Onitaset Kumat: But when one hides and one seeks, the two oppose one another but both are just, doesn’t this mean that ‘justice’ is necessarily specific to the spirit of things?
Knobeco: Necessarily. That is what is meant by Spiritual Capital; that spirit determines morality. You rediscovered this Onitaset Kumat.
Onitaset Kumat: Yes. And do you find truth in “Leave him in error who loves his error”?
Knobeco: Another from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. It is truth. It is wasteful to will to correct those who love their errors.
Onitaset Kumat: Let me ask you something personal then. Which between these two choices would you wish upon yourself: “Independence, Prosperity and Liberty” or “Dependence, Poverty and Slavery?”
Knobeco: A silly question if I ever heard one. I would prefer the former.
Onitaset Kumat: Very much so and according your spirit. But looking around at how your condition fits the latter wherever you interact with Asians or Europeans, which of these do these Asians and Europeans prefer upon you?
Knobeco: Dependence, Poverty and Slavery.
Onitaset Kumat: And this is according their spirit. Hence, by the Asian and European, your Dependence, Poverty and Slavery is just. However, as the Wildebeest’s justice is her opposition to the Crocodile’s; your Independence, Prosperity and Liberty, the preference your spirit chose, comes only through separation from the other races.
Knobeco: What about through prayer? Can I pray away the misery?
Onitaset Kumat: Would you be the first?
Knobeco: I do not suppose so.
Onitaset Kumat: Then what makes you think that the prayers have not already been answered? For instance, isn’t it the case that you will for Independence, Prosperity and Liberty?
Onitaset Kumat: And isn’t it the case that you have the necessary physical, mental and spiritual endowments?
Knobeco: Of course! Our anatomy is superb, our intellect unquestionable and our spirit instructive.
Onitaset Kumat: Then you’re perfectly capable of separation. After all, your superb anatomy tends to your escape, your unquestionable intellect manages your route, and your instructive spirit teaches you this undeniable truth: The problem with Europeans and Asians is Europeans and Asians; the solution for Africans is Africans!
Knobeco: Very much so. Yet undeniable as it is, it does not appear self-evident. Mostly because if our solution is African people, how do we account for Africans who have done against Africans?
Onitaset Kumat: Do you find truth in “One foot isn’t enough to walk with.”
Knobeco: Another from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. Of course it is true. Walking requires two feet. But what’s the relation?
Onitaset Kumat: Aren’t there countless examples of Africans doing against Africans?
Knobeco: I could not count it. But how is this to your point?
Onitaset Kumat: Well, we can not judge all of them, but we can judge common examples, right?
Knobeco: No less than a million would be common. But I suppose that we can judge them. I seek the point.
Onitaset Kumat: Well, think on these many millions, Knobeco, was the perpetrator of wrong “Dependent, Poor, and Enslaved” or “Independent, Prosperous, and Liberated?”
Knobeco: I see. These were one footed perpetrators. “One foot isn’t enough to walk with.” Though Africans do against Africans, the perpetrators are dependent, poor and enslaved. But why does this make Europeans and Asians problems?
Onitaset Kumat: They have no excuse. Don’t their independent, prosperous and liberated do wrong against us?
Knobeco: Universally! Still, it remains to be seen how Africans are the solution and Europeans and Asians are the problem. I understand spiritual differences and yet I feel that there’s more.
Onitaset Kumat: Do you find truth in “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree. The seed will develop these possibilities, however, only if it receives corresponding energies from the sky.”
Knobeco: Another from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. Of course I find truth therein. Within a seed is both a barren and fruitful tree. Sufficient nurturing will yield the latter; insufficient, the former.
Onitaset Kumat: Well do you remember our conversation on “The Science of Struggle?”
Knobeco: Absolutely. I learned a lot then.
Onitaset Kumat: So you remember the creation story?
Knobeco: From the uncreated the Creator created.
Onitaset Kumat: And you remember how struggle here parallels?
Knobeco: Struggle is creating from the uncreated.
Onitaset Kumat: Very Good! It’s no wonder you are an Ethical Philosopher in the African Blood Siblings! But now we will discuss very seriously, tell me if you are prepared to really see the truth of the phrase.
Knobeco: I am prepared.
Onitaset Kumat: Which is the highest aspiration which all ought strive, a moral expression in and of itself: “Love, Knowledge and Wisdom” or “Hate, Ignorance and Error?”
Knobeco: Love, Knowledge and Wisdom.
Onitaset Kumat: Then, in the deepest recesses of your heart, do you believe that everyone can be loving, knowledgeable and wise?
Knobeco: I do not know if you would agree with me, but Onitaset Kumat, I do conceive that all can be loving, knowledgeable and wise.
Onitaset Kumat: As do I. So if all can be loving, knowledgeable and wise, isn’t there within all of us an uncreated or created Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Person?
Knobeco: Necessarily. “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree.”
Onitaset Kumat: But here’s where we get serious. For tell me aren’t the Popes, Caliphates, Politicians, and Professors considered loving, knowledgeable and wise amongst their Independent, Prosperous and Liberated constituents: Asians and Europeans?
Knobeco: Absolutely. So it is known that those of such distinctions are widely regarded as loving, knowledgeable and wise!
Onitaset Kumat: Then pay close attention. Aren’t these professions responsible for sanctioning and ordering genocides, jihads, physical and mental enslavement; injuries, insults and injustices against African people?
Knobeco: I concede.
Onitaset Kumat: Then it is established, that the highest aspiration of the European or Asian, to be Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Europeans and Asians, is in fact a status of Hate, Ignorance and Error against African people. Ergo, Europeans and Asians are inherently, in their highest aspirations, problems against African people. Erstwhile, the Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African is guilty of no trespasses against African people. Hence she is the solution.
Knobeco: I can see that a Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise European or Asian can be against African people. But as it is true that “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree” can not the European or Asian be nurtured to be akin to the Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African who conducts no trespasses against African people?
Onitaset Kumat: Have not we agreed upon “Always watch and follow nature”?
Knobeco: Yes we have.
Onitaset Kumat: So is it alright if we returned to the Wildebeest and the Crocodile?
Knobeco: I recommend as much.
Onitaset Kumat: Well, spirit is a central aspect of morality.
Knobeco: Of course. This is what is meant by Spiritual Capital. It’s your own Philosophical rediscovery, Philosopher-King.
Onitaset Kumat: Then isn’t it so that the Wildebeest can not make a just Crocodile, but can be a just Wildebeest?
Knobeco: Of course. A Wildebeest of a Crocodile’s morals would wait in water to pull its brethren within and feast on its siblings flesh, such a Wildebeest would be immoral by both Crocodile and Wildebeest standards. It could not even survive.
Onitaset Kumat: Well, isn’t it the case that a Crocodile can not make a just Wildebeest, but can make a just Crocodile?
Knobeco: Naturally. A Crocodile which spent its time out of water, galloping, eating grass and so forth could not wait for the judgment of her peers: she’d be dead before adulthood.
Onitaset Kumat: But isn’t it so that you can try to raise the Wildebeest or the Crocodile to be like the other?
Knobeco: Very much so. Though the exercise may be fruitless.
Onitaset Kumat: Yes, and isn’t it fruitless because that Wildebeest or Crocodile possesses a spirit toward their respective moralities?
Knobeco: Yes. A Crocodile who tastes flesh and the joy of the water will be less inclined to gallop and eat grass; just as the Wildebeest, whose appetite is spoiled by his brethren or whose wet body is a hindrance, would prefer galloping and the fields.
Onitaset Kumat: Then if Love, Knowledge and Wisdom are the highest aspiration, being moral expressions in and of themselves, isn’t it just as fruitless to deter the Europeans or Asians from this height.
Knobeco: I see! And I do not want you to belabor the point, yet I find the point rather dismal. I would prefer to think that so-called “Free Will” would allow for a European or Asian who does good by African people. “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree!”
Onitaset Kumat: Knobeco, no one denies that the Crocodile can emulate the Wildebeest or vise-versa, just as no one denies that the European or Asian can emulate the Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African; after all we see the reverse in Dependent, Poor and Enslaved Africans all the while whom emulate Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Europeans and Asians who do against African people. But it’s upon you to understand your name. Knobeco means “The Instructions of Life” or more particularly “Know Thyself, Be Thyself, Complete Thyself.”
Knobeco: And I am thankful to you for the name.
Onitaset Kumat: I am thankful to you for receiving it. But Knobeco, consider the animals above, if the Crocodile emulates the Wildebeest, or the Wildebeest the Crocodile, neither are satisfying Life’s Second Instruction: “Be Thyself.” But as the Crocodile above who finds his home on the fields and the Wildebeest above who finds his home in the water, fail the First Instruction–“Know Thyself”–you know, upon the former’s discovery of water and the latter’s the field, their upbringing will be tossed aside and, as Aesop had said, “Nature will out.” For isn’t it true “To teach one must know the nature of those whom one is teaching.”
Knobeco: Another from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. It is so that nothing is learned that is discordant to the spirit. But it looks to me that this separation means that there’s no redemption for the European or Asian. That no matter if they are educated as Africans, that European or Asian will be a problem. Is this what is to be meant?
Onitaset Kumat: It is so. An African Education for Europeans or Asians is Mis-Education: Education discordant to their internal spirit and life’s instructions; because Africans possess a different morality from Europeans and Asians and Nature will out. This has been consistently shown.
Knobeco: It has. The European and Asian emulating the Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African will not find Knowledge of Self. This is evident wherein the African emulating Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Europeans and Asians are ignorant of self, aptly called “Mis-Educated.” But I do not understand, is it not better to try and fail than to leave?
Onitaset Kumat: Knobeco, have you ever heard of the Circus acts involving Lions or Tigers?
Knobeco: I have. What comes to mind is where a trainer goes into a cage with a Lion with only a chair and whip, or a trainer place his head into a Tiger’s mouth.
Onitaset Kumat: Good examples. With the second. Would you put your head in a Tiger’s mouth?
Knobeco: I hope that I never do.
Onitaset Kumat: What if the Tiger were well trained.
Knobeco: I do not look forward to such a circumstance. I heard of men who died due their faith in the Tiger’s discipline.
Onitaset Kumat: Then isn’t it better to leave the Tiger untrained then to try to train the Tiger?
Knobeco: So it is. A trained Tiger does not “Know herself,” but when she discovers the taste of flesh is to her liking, it’s only a matter of time before she will “be herself,” from then she’s better off in a community of Tigers and man-killers, rather than trainers and men–the stage for which she “completes herself.”
Onitaset Kumat: It is so. For wasn’t Greece the most Africanized European state of its time? And had not Greece conquered Egypt with a brutality unknown to the African world? Isn’t it so that “Nature will out”?
Knobeco: Yes. It becomes more evident as to why our Ancient Temples, like Wa’set, originally prohibited Europeans and Asians and why when they forcibly admitted themselves they were never able to complete the African education. I see it now. Separation is the greatest gesture that we can do for ourselves and for others. But as you make the point that we have an inherent ambition toward becoming Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise, to complete our uncreated selves. Why is there a need to rally for African Blood Siblings Community Centers when we long to be created all our own?
Onitaset Kumat: For this we can be brief. Remember “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree. The seed will develop these possibilities, however, only if it receives corresponding energies from the sky.” This means that the uncreated Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African must be actively created. For many this aspect remains uncreated because Life is the culmination of consequences but not all consequences lend to this positive creation. Said otherwise, All experiences are consequences of consequences, yet not all consequences befit the spirit.
Knobeco: That is truth.
Onitaset Kumat: Do you think that it is also true that Man must learn to increase his sense of responsibility and of the fact that everything he does will have its consequences.
Knobeco: It is from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. Of course it is true. Though it begs the question, “What is Responsibility?”
Onitaset Kumat: “All speech comes from all listening, but all wise from where is wise.”
Knobeco: That is from “Maroon and Build For Self.” I love the collection and I purchase another one every week and happily distribute the purchase amongst our people.
Onitaset Kumat: I know this Knobeco. You help sustain me and spread the word of our organization and mission. But let’s evaluate this. Isn’t it so that speech communicates thought?
Knobeco: It has to.
Onitaset Kumat: And isn’t it so that one who listens to a foreign language enough can begin to speak and think in that language?
Knobeco: That is how we learn languages.
Onitaset Kumat: So all that is listened to has an effect on one’s mind.
Onitaset Kumat: Then all negativity has a negative impact, correct?
Onitaset Kumat: And all positivity has a positive impact, right?
Knobeco: This was shared in the Fable of the Fit Squirrel.
Onitaset Kumat: Then as all sensed has an impact, isn’t it responsible to ensure good consequences and irresponsible to allow bad consequences?
Onitaset Kumat: Then responsibility is ensuring good consequences.
Knobeco: So it appears.
Onitaset Kumat: But if Life has one instruction, your name, “Know Thyself, Be Thyself, and Complete Thyself,” doesn’t that mean that a Good Consequence sets one to the path of Completing oneself?
Knobeco: Very excellent and true!
Onitaset Kumat: Then this is the necessity of the African Blood Siblings Community Centers. For it is our responsibility to create of our people Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Africans, a step toward Prosperous, Independent African Communities at home and abroad.
Knobeco: Such a worthy mission!
Onitaset Kumat: And it’s upon all who would call themselves responsible to devote themselves to the African Blood Siblings, the only organization willing to create the uncreated Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African amongst our people.
Onitaset Kumat: Then Knobeco, you are on the right path. Please continue to share our organization. And continue to purchase our literature. You’re indispensible to our success. We will for the Independence, Prosperity and Liberty of African people and you are a reliable aid.
Knobeco: I shall continue. In fact I will purchase some literature right now.
Onitaset Kumat: I am gracious. Have we answered your question?
Knobeco: Yes and my conviction is renewed. I trust you will guide our race to restoration. I am thankful to the conversation and I will go on to spread more news of the African Blood Siblings and Onitaset Kumat the Philosopher-King! Shem Hotep (I go in peace!)
Onitaset Kumat: Shem Hotep, African Blood Sibling Knobeco Knobeco!
