NEW BRIGHT YOUTH – Those in their forties and under

There is no magic mirror - the think and imagine and it is real kind - but a need for enlightenment that can identify virtual images from real ones.  Jesus spent many years saying the same things and Confucius and then there is Plato and Aristotle and all of those people.   

400 years ago in the Caribbean there was plenty.  Our caring leaders, in the Americas that started out altruistic have either been shot or, like in this small island, manipulated out of existence.  It is by and large the coloured and black educated people that brought the society up and many of them got strangled and discarded by the way; we do not know enough about them.  It was no thanks to the system.   

Unless the value of greed is seen it is not possible to find many, who say when I grow up I want to be a politician.  Politician is a negative because he is not trained and does not need to be qualified.  There needs to be a little core of youngsters, who want to make things work.  They can be found in the intellectual structure, even in Lots time and a search for a dozen righteous men there was one.  In this day with better communication somewhere there are some that used education when so many chose careers that had to do with just schooling. 

Rebels, they will be called for they would have evolved and want to reform against, those who just want to be a part of the system of power structure.  Without this the whole thing will collapse for gone will be the day when an un-examined, second-class, political configuration and the Raysides, good friends of the parties all over the place, continue to be not given a hassle because after all they were poor, black men and the tax payers in Green Hill are covered in dust. 

This is what happens when “you got to take it.”  Greed is authorized and recognized as a goal but it is not, it is mere acquisition.
