BANDUNG2 is a global movement of individuals committed to replacing all man-made forms of supremacy with a non-system of justice based on The Qur'an. The dominant contemporary form of man-made supremacy is the globally operating system of Racism (White Supremacy).
Now consider the following extract from Philip N. Howard’s Pax Technica: How the Internet of Things May Set Us Free or Lock Us Up (2015).
States once stocked up on gold to show off their stability. Now bond markets, currency speculators, and security analysts judge a government’s stability by its ability to keep electrical power flowing and its devices connected to the internet. (p.55)
I’m currently reading The Qur’anic System of Sustenance which is a translation of the seminal work Nizam-e-Rabubiyyah by the late Qur’an scholar, G A Parwez, in preparation for a discussion / debate with a couple of non-white (attempted) Muslims on the issue of Qur’anic economics versus RIBA-nomics [=capitalism].
While it has its flaws, IMHO, the book makes for very interesting and constructive reading and I recommend readers to obtain a copy and study it carefully.
In this regard, I should like to share the following observation which appears in a chapter discussing materialism:
Attempting to resolve the issue sustenance under the dictates of materialism has turned the world into a lion’s den. Dealing with the same issue under the dictates of mysticism turns human civilization into a graveyard. (p.43)
NB: The dollar, like all paper and/or electronic currency, is created by fiat – literally, a case of “Be! and it is.” It is nothing other than a “social fact” = White Supremacist (Racist) FICTION / ILLUSION / DELUSION / CON / TRICK.
The Qur’an [=Final Proclamation of God/Allah to Humanity] states:
(30:41) Corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea by [reason of] what the hands of people have earned in order that He [God/Allah] may let them taste part of [the consequence of] what they have done that perhaps they will return [to correct and/or balanced action].
In this connection, I should like to invite interested viewers to watch the following important documentary:
There is a problem with this documentary in that it does not engage with issues of ‘capitalist’ [=RIBA-nomic] over-production and consumerism which, from a Counter-Racist perspective, are two of the means by which the globally operating system of White Supremacy (Racism) functions (maintains, expands, refines) in the major area of people activity known as Economics.
In addition, there is the issue of the possible relationship between industrial monoculture farming/agriculture and exploitation of the ‘Third World’ [=Developing Countries=non-white people] and the production of bioplastics. In this connection, I should like to invite viewers to watch the following presentation by non-white scientist and activist, Vandana Shiva, which was delivered at the University of California, Irvine in 2008:
Check out the following clip from John Carpenter’s They Live (1988):
From a Counter-Racist perspective, it is interesting to note that it is the white male wearing the glasses who can ‘see’ [=understand/decode] the truth/reality of the paper money system of which the non-white male is totally oblivious [=CON-fused].
