    Jesus was an international born man.  He could not be a “pure” race.  It is evident in his genealogy that he was a multicultural man.  It is time for religion to reflect the truth that the bible is a multicultural religion.  It is a religion of multiculturalism.  It was in the development of “pure racial conflict” lead to “multicultural unity” that was not the only truth of the bible, and its origins of multiculturalism but the theories that Jesus education was not centered only in Judaism, but it was a combination of Pagan learning of Egyptology and Roman law.  It was not only these factors that Jesus was a man of Nazarene, Egypt, Bethlehem and Galilee, but he was a man born of women.  He is not just the first and last Christian, but the movement and revolution he lead was to abolish religion and all systems of oppression.  What is religion?  It was institutions that segregated the poor from the rich, and the uneducated with the educated, and the healthy with the unhealthy, the list goes on, sex, race, and keep going, so in fact, the ideas of any religion that state the isolation of their group from another, it could not be salvation or restoration of humanity.

    This revolution was in fact the inclusion factor of using techniques of trade to explain techniques of metaphysics or some would say, ways of the universe, the higher consciousness.  It has many names, as they would say in Judaism.  It is evident that not many recognize the life of Jeshua, or “Jesus” as the Christ, or the messiah, some would say, President of the Universe, in the ages, but to understand the “star trek” ideologies that life beyond our reason or understanding of comprehension will not end in our death. This is not to be sarcastic, but “copulate as an analogy” the ideas of sexuality and eternal life.  What is the sexual life without form?  I should say rather what would it take to unify as one without death?

    The ideas of expression or graffiti suggestion that we can comprise ourselves as one team to come together under one spirit in a revolution of social change, what change?  It is the forbidden factor of the “law” what is necessary to make progress.  One we need to decrease violence.  Second we need to decrease wealth, or increase poverty, or increase wealth and decrease poverty, it does not matter, but unity means we all play on the same field.  We cannot expect the economy to work if some of us are broke and others are not?  How can you play on two different fields, and expect us to play together?  The wealthy is not going to let go its wealth.  And poverty is not going to let go of its poverty, so what will happen now?  In the suggestion of “Jesus Christ” let us entertain the notion of “Tupac Shakur” some find this somewhat odd, but that is life, and life is not always fair.

    As a chat personality, it is my job, and expertise to bring in all factors to the equation to the pot.  We have two revolutionary men that function on equally the playing fields for whom?  It was not the wealthy giving revolutions were it?  So, do we see the pattern?  Benjamin Franklin, and let’s say, George Washington, to be fair, were they men of revolutions?  Of course so for whom, they were fighting for the freedom of Great Britain right?  These men compared to Great Britain were the poor men, the criminal men, and finally the men that were fighting for a place to fit in.  What was the cause of Great Britain that was different from these men Jesus Christ and Tupac Shakur?  They were all fighting against the wealthy, but in my mind for what?  They knew the wealthy did not have the understanding to give up their wealth.  They did not have their feet in the grave without the announcement of their poverty against what was the cause of their wealth?  If they were truly wealthy then why did they need to war?  Correct me if I am wrong, the wars and the name of wars, whether it was Britain, French, or whatever, Rome, or the Ghettos, Gangs, and the sorts, I can go on, that these revolutions of men, and women, could not in fact be classified as a revolution if the resistance had not be identified with a “missing link” to their nutrition or fitness, some would say to their safety, health, and progress, of their families and their own self.

    What is the reason for this conversation that we are not a “rambling or babbling nation,” but we are a nation of examination and self-actualization?  Some would call this nation the nation of “hierarchies of Maslow.”  The goal to reach to the higher self to sit all down and examine our behavior, attitudes and practices, to do what?
