Listen Siblings, I come in peace,
“What is Morality?”
The above question is unanswered by any race of people until now. Before March of 2011, ancestral aid guided me to correctly answer this ancient enigma. In March of 2011, I wrote this speech–I was twenty-two. We as a people need to expand our horizon. Study the solution, see the problems posed, and commit to the solutions there. African people can do two things toward liberation: Organize and support Organizers. Behold, the African Blood Siblings (ABS) is the only organization that understands “The Law of Morality.” Moral Africans will do only two things: Organize with ABS or Support it. Propagate Truth. Write the ABS to help build African Blood Siblings Community Centers, bastions of Morality. Subscribe, share, love.
The Introduction to African Blood Siblings
Em Hotep Siblings,
“What is goodness?” “What is justice?” “What is freedom?” These three questions relate to “What is morality?” and all four questions are unanswered. The closest attempted answer known today was from the ancient Greek matriculant of the Ancient Egyptian mysteries system commonly hailed as the best Western Philosopher, Socrates. Socrates could not answer his question “What is goodness?,” yet he foretold that he who could would solely be fit to govern and shall take the title “Philosopher King.” The foretelling notwithstanding none fit to govern have appeared, yet governance is ubiquitous. Moreover, the pursuit of truth has been postponed: Philosophers of today reject the notion of good and their salaries are paid on the basis of this falsehood. But I ask them, “what of when we tossed out slavery? Was not that good?” I stand to divulge some truth in order that we can live in a good, just and free world where morality is known, the people are moral and the Philosopher King rules.
The admiration of the ancient world was the crowned-capital of the eldest continent the Kingdom of Kush which in its advanced wisdom bestowed the answer to “What is blamelessness?” The ten blameless codes depended upon “What is goodness?” but even through these incomplete ethics those Sudanese were so well-respected that six continents had African deities. It was said of these same Nubians that Greek’s Zeus celebrated among them and that Africans proper were the most intelligent and ethical people on the planet. In this ancient past Africa as the oldest sister of all the continents, was most beautiful, compassionate and intelligent. Today this most wonderful mother, who once wore pyramids, fortresses and castles, is torn down into the depths of shacks, squatting and homelessness; not only unfit in her sorority but outright deprecated as a woman. It is apparent then that ethics may restore this woman; so that her children may once more enjoy her wealth and excel. Let a Philosopher King come and speak toward “What is morality?” that restoration may presently come!
Toward this goal, I propose an analysis of ethics. We know that ethics exists. We know that actions can be ethical. And we know how to categorize actions. Activities like making out with our complements, dressing like our comrades, rewarding our orators and sharing our ideas are examples of exchanging civil capital. “Civil capital” is a short-hand for those non-military capitals: sexual capital, the means towards and ends of sex; cultural capital, identity; social capital, society; physical capital, production; human capital, value; intellectual capital, self-determination; and spiritual capital, a more complicated capital. These seven capitals succinctly describe a large part of our human interactions. We simply state our making out with our complements as sexual capital for spiritual capital; our dressing like our comrades, cultural capital for social capital; our rewarding our orators, physical capital for human capital; and our sharing our ideas, intellectual capital for intellectual capital. However all activities need to be categorized in order that “What is morality?” can be answered.
Therefore we explain military capital. If one can say that civil capital primarily deals with exchanges, one can also say military capital, theft. Just as armies often go abroad to pillage, people often go to siblings to steal. Military capital can be used by nations, groups and individuals and takes four forms. One form is mobilization, which is most commonly expressed by literal militaries; another form is valuation, typically amounting to undermining the truth in order that values are increased or decreased for a particular cause; another form is ruination, an example of which is starving for labour, a short description of the fundamental impact of capitalism; and the last form is limitation, the preventing of someone or something for some cause. Civil capital and military capital explain the full spectrum of human activity. As such these two words should enable a Philosopher King.
Yet none have arisen despite the mainstream of these terms. If Socrates expected a man to arise from the caves of ignorance, see the light of good and return to bestow the truth upon his siblings, then why not now, when all activities are so simply understood? Why is there no philosopher who speaks toward “What is morality?” that today and hereafter shall be spent by us ethically? And why does the audience, first hearing this reading, have no familiarity with the terms above explained? For this last question, I know the answer. I, Onitaset Kumat, invented the terms “civil capital” and “military capital” to explain morality. I, Onitaset Kumat, founded the African Blood Siblings to inculcate morality. And I, Onitaset Kumat, learned of the ten codes of blamelessness, only after I devised the one code of morality. Siblings, I am the Philosopher King!
Morality is the use of military capital against immorality, the use of military capital in want of civil capital. As rape is an assault on another for sex, it is moral to combat rapists; as capitalism forces starvation for labour, it is moral to combat capitalism; as racism, sexism and classism lower the value of individuals, it is moral to combat these “-isms”; and as ignorance and false ethical systems rule the day, it is moral to combat these lies! In one sentence the whole of ethics is expressed. What is goodness? The result of morality! What is justice? The victory of morality! What is freedom? The finality of morality! And what is the human instinct? Toward good!
On this last truth, what do we learn besides that the greatest power in the human arsenal is rhetoric? But “what is rhetoric?” but the attempted expression of morality? Why did Europe name Africa savage?; why did the Allies name the Axis aggressive?; why did men name women unacademic?; And why did the U.S. name Iraq tyrannical? Because if Africa is savage it is moral to take the African from savagery! If the Axis is aggressive, it is moral to attack them! If women are unacademic it is moral to steer them from the academy! And if Iraq is ruled by a tyrant it is moral to overthrow this tyrant! Who could disagree? Our nature compels us to be in accordance! Yet now with ethics known, rather than follow these lies and half-truths, we can follow the truth. We can investigate that not only was Africa not savage, but even if it were, it is still immoral to enslave the African. We can investigate the Allies and know that its policies were at fault for Axis anger. We can investigate humans and know women are as academically capable as men. And we can investigate Iraq, know Saddam’s background with the U.S. and know that to replace tyranny with tyranny is utterly immoral. We now are empowered to know our nature, know how we are manipulated and know how to master ourselves and build a better tomorrow.
So we know morality as an action, then it is incumbent upon us to become active. However, though we may develop our minds, we must also develop our societies. For ethics can role the template for government, and the Philosopher King ought rule a Kingdom. So to where should I concentrate? The sisterhood that is the continents has one sister, once mighty, who has been dejected. This woman was the maker of humanity, the initiator of civilization, the brain behind the blameless ethics, the muser of the mysteries system, and the first to be righteous and religious; she stood tall above her sisters with riches magnificent, architecture monumental and children magnanimous! She is the mother of the doctor Imhotep, the defender Toussaint, the general Queen Nanny, the conductor Harriet Tubman, the martyr Lumumba, the hero Taharqo, the researcher Rogers, the strategist Hannibal, the journalist Ida B., the warrior Cetewayo, the scholar Dubois, the orator Douglass, the agitator Walker, the astronomer Banneker, the genius Wheatley, the inventor McCoy, the poet McKay, the captain Garvey, the champion Memnon, the founder Osiris, and the Philosopher, yours truly. She has in her possession, the precious bronze castings of the Igbo, the admirable terracottas of the Nok, the splendid wootz steel of Zanzibar, the Great Pyramids of Egypt and the largest pre-modern structure in the world of Eredo! Yet this dignified, beautiful woman, in long garbs of silk, adorned with heaven in knowledge and appearance has been robbed, reduced, beaten, ridiculed, brutalized, rejected, battered, ravaged and raped. Her children have been stolen, their names replaced, their fame forgotten, their bodies taken, their tall murdered, their loves lynched. If it is asked to which lady I should help and do all that I can to restore her to her former glory, then I answer unequivocally “Africa.” To she greatness is owed. To she greatness will come!
I founded the African Blood Siblings, not only to inculcate morality but to restore Africa. Through here shall we spread the truth and make tomorrow a dignified day. Today it is under funded, undermanned and under construction, but it is the crown party of the Philosopher King and through its simple will of an ethical tomorrow it will make the difference that frees us all. Support it. Such is good.
