DON’T STOP THE MOVEMENT – PARIS

When I was thirteen years old, I was really into hip hop. I had a tape by a rapper named Paris and the album was titled The Devil Made Me Do It.  I remember thinking it was the most violent, dangerous and seditious thing I had ever heard, so needless to say, my adolescent self loved it.  My father found the tape, saw the parental advisory sticker on the cover, the title conjuring images of Satan and listened to a few moments of the first track and immediately decided to confiscate it.  I first tried to steal the tape from my father’s top bureau drawer.  He eventually noticed the tape was missing and questioned me.  I vaguely remember pleading with him that the music represented the violent reality of the violent environment where this poor rapper must have originated.  I was obviously watching far too much MTV and regurgitating what I heard from some talking head.  My father let me have the tape.  I am not sure if I made a successful argument or rather he just didn’t want to hear it anymore.

A few years later, before the 1992 election, Paris released an even more bombastic album titled Sleeping With The Enemy.  The biggest single which garnished much attention was Bush Killa.  The track portrayed a gunman shooting George H. Bush and the nervous record company shelved the album until after the election.

Seventeen years later, I wondered if this enigma named Paris still made music, if he was still as committed to his art and his politics. Here’s what I happily discovered on YouTube.

HOW TO BRAINWASH A NATION, AS TOLD BY A FORMER KGB OPERATIVE

This is an interview of Yuri Bezmenov, a former KGB agent, conducted by Edward Griffin ironically in 1984.  He says only fifteen-percent of money, effort and time of an intelligence agency is spent on espionage, the majority eighty-five percent of money, effort and time is spent changing the perception of reality by a nation’s population.  These ends are met through the planned programming and demoralization of the public to the point where members of this deceived public cannot intellectually receive fact, truth or reality; they are but prisoners of their minds.  Those whom are awake, or conscious, to their political and economic realities will be frustrated, unhappy and impotent individuals who would be “squashed like cockroaches” by the intelligence operatives and quietly removed from society which has no place for dissenters.

We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.

~Nikita Khrushchev; Soviet Union 1959

Don’t hit the snooze button again.  It’s still not too late to wake up.
