TheBlackList Pub

For All Points-Of-The-View.

Are you just talking or what? Does it matter to you that your words are impactful?

Are you just talking or what?
Are you just talking?
Does your word matter?
Does it matter to you that your words matter?
Does it matter to you that your words are impactful?
Or, are you just talking?
I invite everyone on this list (TheBlackList) to consider that your words matter - your words have impact.
(I not interested in debating this here, now).
"In the beginning was the word", so begins most religions and creation myths.
(I not interested in debating this here, now).
With declaration everything that did not exist was brought into existence.
"You Bitch..." And Bitch was brought in to existence.
"You are no good and you will never be any good!" And there lives "no good".
"Let there be light!" And it was so. etc.
It is written in the ancient text of the so-called Egyptian Book of the Death that "I will not die as long as someone knows my name"(sic).
So, our ancestor permanented their words in stone - and they are alive forever.
My question again: Are you just talking or what?
Does your words have impact?
Are you being responsible for the impact of your words.
I invite us all to consider the impact of our words and the language we use on ourselves and those who are still unborn.
You and I are whatever we create.
We cannot create anything distinct from ourselves.
We cannot demonize others to the exclusion of ourselves.
Let us be true to our conviction and be respectful of divergently points-of-view.
Remember, your view and your opinion is not the truth.
It is only a point-of-view.
Back to writing on stone...
Thanks to the permanence of stone Kemet Lives.
Consider, consider, how limited and temporal email communication is.
It is gone with just one push of a key.
It circulates into a circle of listed friends.
It is most likely that our emails and email lists will not circulate beyond our already existing circle.
How do we reach beyond our already existing circle, create a more permanent record and be accessible to a wider audience - everyone?
By using social media!
By shifting our debate from email and email list to websites like TheBlackList Pub that create archival records that are searchable and readily accessible to any and everyone - through search engines etc.
Remember, when you speak, you are not just speaking to the person who you know or assume is listening.
Our ancestor still speak to us from the words they left in stone - and ink too.
Email and email list is temporal.
Poof!!!
You are invited to join TheBlackList Pub and create a record of our conversation for listener who may be yet unborn.
Are you just talking or what?


Project your voice into the future.
