ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOK I READ IN HIGH SCHOOL…so much so that I LONG considered ‘Mersault’ as a middle name for my son, if I ever had one…yeah that ‘Deep’

…you all are lucky to have it read to you yet I suggest that you read it yourselves…Enjoy however you choose to experience this great work.

This video presentation explains why I was so impacted by The Outsider (Stranger) when I read it in high school. As an inner-city born, agnostic-minded youth that excelled at sports.

At near age 45 it all makes since in my personal development and aspects of that which I want to share with others for their possible personal development.

Towards ‘Tyrannical-totalitarianism’

Combining terms… to help pinpoint a description (which is fitting in this current domestic socio-political era)

Fasces-DT-Brittanica

“The fasces was carried by the lictors, or attendants, and was characterized by an ax head projecting from a bundle of elm or birch rods about 5 feet (1.5 metres) long and tied together with a red strap; it symbolized penal power. When carried inside Rome, the ax was removed (unless the magistrate was a dictator or general celebrating a triumph) as recognition of the right of a Roman citizen to appeal a magistrate’s ruling. The discovery of a miniature iron set of fasces in a 7th-century-BCE Etruscan tomb at Vetulonia confirms the traditional view that Rome derived the fasces from the Etruscans. The Roman emperors, beginning with Augustus in 19 BCE, had 12 fasces, but, after Domitian(reigned 81–96 CE), they had 24; dictators, 24; consuls, 12; praetors, 6; legates, 5; priests, 1. Lowering of the fasces was a form of salute to a higher official.

Benito Mussolini’s Fascist Party of Italy was named for the fasces, which the members adopted in 1919 as their emblem. The Winged Liberty dime, minted in the United States from 1916 to 1945, depicts the fasces on its reverse side.” Source: https://www.britannica.com/topic/fasces

 

SALUTE! ~ Black Panther’s director: ‘Brotha Kofi’ Ryan Coogler

Kofi is Ryan Coogler’s Akan Day Name. Like mine is Kwame (Saturday born), Kofi indicates that he was born on a Friday in 1986 in his case. Each day carries a variety of attributable spiritual (thus behavioral) traits.

He is symbolically my/our folks now, so he gets a nickname as a term of endearment.

Asante bruh!
