Prisoner Letter

"Discover your humanity and your love of revolution"

"If you think you are too small to make a difference, Try sleeping in a closet with a mosquito." African Proverb

Dear RCP:

I have perused through your Article #170, it was articulated at its clearest. I do not know much in depth of the current events, but my crawl has me learning more and more as I move alone. In with more knowledge than of yesterday, and your material helps me better to place pieces together of the addressed nefarious acts, and machinations.

The beginning of the article was a terrific way to get the adrenaline robustly pumping. From the beginning with enslaving to genocide, clearly not much has changed over the years. It just took on a different look. As prisoners, we're not immune to dealing with similar oppressive acts. This system is definitely broken and activated for a crash and burn spontaneous combustion of all independent thought faculties. I have a difficult time believing in "human rights" and this "democracy" that's spoke of. I think that this is a battle of mental warfare. But given the options, a firm Revolution can help give people their independence with a sufficient not subject to dissolution lifestyle, with equality, not inequality. Lies and deception only benefits a few people, but best believe opportunity will show its head for the proletariat, for the people. No journey comes without some sort of battle that one must bring down.

I might be imprisoned, but the mind & soul are eternally free to imagine, express and influence the physical realm. And in society and in prison, there is a fear, a tendency to avoid tapping into and developing our unlimited power and potential.

To many it seems easier to run away from our greatness, and stay hidden in a hole of what I call mediocrity, but in fact it is the harder choice where darkness and insecurity prevail. Each one of us is empowered with a unique, but wonderful gift that can only be expressed through us individually and if we dare to embrace and share this magnificence it will have a positive effect on our environment and those around us on more levels than we are capable of comprehending. We free our mind as a whole, we can soar into brilliancy to transform this needed Revolution.

I was once told that, "when something does not change, it does not grow." We must awake others to change our ways of thinking, to finally give ourselves a real/true chance to grow. A small mind will always think that something is, impossible. Our mind is the tool to make choices in this life, but many fail to see how crucial their turn is away from the true way by the personal biases in their minds, and the individual warps in their vision. Our vision is what keeps us out of the dark, we are defenseless without it. It's not much to ask that we push perseveringly down our own pathway, instead of capitalism/imperialism that is leading us down this dark tunnel of destruction, and castration!

George Jackson once said:

Settle your quarrels, come together, understand the reality of our situation, understand that fascism is already here, that people are dying who could be saved, that generations more will die or live poor butchered half-lives if you fail to act. Do what must be done, discover your humanity and your love of Revolution. Pass on the torch. Join us, give your life for the people... The Article #170 was on point! Thank you.
