I might be a big white bearded southern boy, but I love good hip-hop , wordplay and people with something interesting to say.
This mans song reflects my views on God and life more than any other single literary piece I can recall. Hopsin is definitely a spiritual brother and a member of my tribe.
If you listen to this song and can’t at least empathize with his position without feeling hate or judgement for him, then in the most polite and sincere way I would ask you to examine yourself and your views on God, because you may be a Nazi or some other terrible form of bastard.
“MAN CANNOT BE TRUSTED.”
“LOVE GOD FIRST AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”
These are the rules of Clay, usually in that order. There will be one or two more.
Since no one knows who God is or what his name is or what he looks like, except those who have accepted the doctrines or traditions of men before them, the only thing we as a human family can logically and rationally agree on his how to love each other. And we all know how, even as we choose not to.
Religion and Science might as well be called the Beast and the False Prophet. Both claim fact from fiction and create fictions of fact and both take away the fundamental morality and freedom and BEAUTY of life, learning and loving.
The fallacy and bigotry of men extends as much into the scientific realm as it does the spiritual one. When you become so certain of your own way that you find animosity towards anyone who believes differently, you are playing with swastikas.
Do you really have a true “faith” in your belief, or is your faith just a disguise or justification for a much deeper wound or personal tragedy or trauma driving you to cast off guilt, or responsibility onto either God, or the total lack thereof. And I’m addressing the atheists too here.
The evil of this world is the evil in US and through US.
Call it demons, call it human nature, call it chance, you must call it by some name because its existence cannot be rationally denied- only logically defined through filtering through our personal beliefs, bigotry’s or nostalgic traditions.
“LUST IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL. ”
Western society, in its long tradition of diluting moral responsibility through the fictionalization and dishonest use of language and wordcraft has substituted “Lust” for “Money.”
Money is the personification of our lust. It lets us BE or DO what we lust for. It makes us slaves to our lust, and by accepting it we subject ourselves to its stain in our lives. Money isnt the root of our evil, the root of our evil has led to our creation and adoption of systems of money.
But hey, we can’t go around crashing economies and banks that are too big to fail just because they happen to be terrifically evil and disastrous to everything good and true and pure in the Human Heart.
Corporations are physical manifestations of spiritual and moral corruption. They exist solely to redistribute social and moral responsibility through a legal process. This cult mentality by board-members who as shareholders feel that they are not themselves directly responsible or liable for their actions as manifested through the actions of the corporate entity then go on to completely destroy the world, their neighbors and finally themselves through massive over-consumption, imbalance and ultimately terminal systems failure of the civilizations they infest.
Churches, schools, universities, charitable foundations, scientific institutes, government agency’s and bodies, banks and virtually everything else in the modern world that function under this same morally irresponsible framework, are therefore at their foundation (regardless of good they may do or positive impacts they may have) fundamentally and inherently evil in my eyes.
What is the solution? Well we know it is not war. We know it is not population control or genocide, it is not global climate change or greenhouse management, it is not a new NGO, politician or world leader, it is not government and it is not an institution. Really and truly the only thing we have never tried and failed at is Love.
It is moral and social responsibility. It is self temperament and control for the social and spiritual benefit of not only yourself, but also those around you and even nature and the universe itself. It is an agreement of the heart that cannot be made in the form of a pact or agreement. A paper document would immediately taint the very nature of the thing. It would take an act of each of us, on one day, simultaneously waking up with a big heart full of love and cheer and saying,
“YOU MAY BE A CUNT, AND I MAY BE A CUNT, AND YOUR DOG JUST TOOK A SHIT IN MY YARD. BUT I LOVE YOU AND IM NOT GOING TO HATE YOU ANYMORE!”
