Obedience is a vice, not a virtue!

Although we live in a so-called “free society” most of us feel that there is something wrong with this view. Freedom is a highly cherished wish, but only a minority can also feel it in the reality of their life, at least to the degree they wish for. Obedience is an issue which strongly influences this feeling. Officially most people deny obedience in our times and believe to be free individuals, but when we take a closer look, we see very clearly that this is not the case at all. Authority nowadays is hidden and anonymous, and therefore it is tough even to detect it and to do something against it. However, even more, there is still a considerable amount of people who have an authoritarian character structure which forced them to accept obedience but also to adamantly demand it from other…

Individual Success, Team Success, and the Black Community

We've individualized success. Listen, nobody is a success who hasn't brought his/her community along with them.
The notion of individual success is confused. It was Michael Jordan in the 80s when the Bulls kept losing.
I actually think that basketball is a great analogy. You look at the players with the most rings, and it's the players of a particular era of the league, in a particular moment in history, and they weren't even the best players on their team. Sure. There is Bill Russell, but John Havlicek is also high on that list; Wilt Chamberlain isn't even on it.
The point is that success and failure are only partially about you. Moreover, individual success amid mass failure is only partial success. I guess the fear is that if you tell people this, they won't try. However, the greater fear is that if you don't tell people this, they end up blaming themselves for not being a Celtic in the 60s.

Starter Bitches

Alright, this post is for cats getting into the game. I'm going to talk about choosing starter bitches. Some cats choose any starter bitch, to begin with. Now, I understand that she's a starter bitch. However, even starter bitches have to have some prerequisites. For starters, she has to be attractive. This is a prerequisite. When you get an authentic broad, you're likely not going to deal with a mud-duck. So, why practice your game on a hideous broad? This retards your game.
Furthermore, it gets you accustomed to dealing with less. You can't become the prize if you deal with trash. However, for new cats entering the game, don't expect the best of the best, yet. So, you have to start somewhere. Therefore, your starter broad won't be perfect, but she does have to be beautiful. She can have some baggage, though. So, she can have one or two kids. She can have some past psychological trauma. None of that really matters because you're only using her to practice y…
