Disabled Infirmed, Blinded But Still Motivated.

Antonio Gramsci believed in the utility of Man, and he wrote while in jail, The Prison Book, his famous treatise on many complex issues of life, labor, and the relations of government and corporations to the Common Man. Gramsci was a literary genius who was jailed to muzzle his powerful voice. I learned about Gramsci while reading The Wretched of the Earth, Franz Fanon’s psychological work which along with Black Skins White Masks can be paired with Morrison’ s Bluest Eye. For help those mentally battered by the oppression of LIFE in a rich capitalist society where for generstions your family has been denied progress and opportunities it will help you greatly to read these works as your thinking will definitely become more clear and concrete.
Hegemony more than money controls the social praxis of a person’s struggle with the quotidian tasks, chores and respectability of Society’s expectations.
The best answer, response to the question about Black Lives Matter!
Like Il’ Duce, Rocket Boy would be credited with vile righteous criticisms from the purist of pure thinkers whom I love dearly, Antnio Gramsci.
Prison allows for uninterrupted meditations and writings from deep inside ths soul beyond the realm of presence and cognitive dissonance takes place each day once the first alarm rings!
