Covenant or Convenience?
Let me touch on a few pillars in this work. Covenant II (Establishing a system of public education in which all children achieve at high levels and reach their full potential). This ignores the real problem. The ''public indoctrination system'' is doing exactly what it was designed to do. In a word, ''The Public School System'' as we know it is irremediably broken. Funding more failure IS NOT the answer. Covenant III (Correcting the system of unequal justice). Let me add that Life, Liberty, and Property do not exist because men have made laws. Rather, the purpose of law is the equal protection and unmitigated defense of life, liberty, and property. The law, then, is negative. That is, the law does not create justice but, in truth, the law should prevent (negate) injustice. And justice is achieved when injustice is absent. Hence a working knowledge of fact, law, and procedure and how to move the courts will go a long way towards this aim. Covenant V (Ensuring broad access to affordable neighborhoods that connect to opportunities). Treatment without diagnosis is malpractice. The essayists here seem completely oblivious to the fact that Black Communities have been infected with an economic virus and hit with Wall Street Schemes that not one in a million people can diagnose, let alone, properly treat. Thus the plunder of the working poor will continue without the real cure. ''The plight of the poor is profitable to the powerful.'' -(EFOBI.com.) Covenant VI (Claiming our democracy). How can we claim our Democracyï¿½ When, in fact, America is a Constitutional Republic Not a Democracy! Covenant VIII (Accessing good jobs, wealth and economic prosperity). How do you access jobs, wealth and economic prosperity? Aren't Jobs the direct result of work that needs to be done? Given the condition of black communities, and given the amount of work that needs to be done, shouldn't Black America be experiencing full employment? James Hart, the brilliant Beverly Hills economist (and advisor to the rich) may know more about how money really works, credit intelligence and economic viruses than anyone in this country, once said: real wealth is the result of ''imagination, vision, innovation and action.'' In which case, Black America is plenty rich. Simply put, maybe it is asking itself the wrong questions...
