Methodology of Oppression: Veganism as a Tool to Fight Back
Topic: Methodology of Oppression
Check Sistah Adama's website. She has a unique perspective on veganism as a practice to resist institutionalized oppression. She is a radio talkshow host out of Atlanta. Let's have a dialogue that reflects on what she has posed as a way of looking at institutionalized oppressed through the lens of food. http://adamaspeaks.com/methodology.htm
Here is a snippet of what she has to say: The Methodology of Oppression
We have come to a place where people are no longer receiving the food that was ideally suited by virtue of the intelligence of the vegetation and plant life complementing the genetic inheritance of the people...
As long as the cell is oppressed with chemicals, flesh, pus, mucus, bacteria, parasites, viruses and all else that the body becomes host, then know that no amount of education, travel, experience, information, money, access, credibility, fame, or fortune, the process of living is being experienced as a process of toxification, acidification, and bastardization laying foundation for physical, emotional, mental, psychic, and spiritual limitation, sickness, imbalance, impotency, perversion and death.
Every disease currently known to the present generations of the earth have developed as result of the starvation of the cell, the assault of the cell with substances which are unable to promote healthy cellular functioning by cleansing the cell, nourishing the cell, or regenerating the cell.
We have been bombarded with lies from the meat and dairy industries since the early 1900's on the necessity of having their products in the diet to be balanced and healthy. It was a lie then, it is an even more atrocious lie now, because so many “professionals” know better.
In order for the human being, child, woman, man to function in the fullness of itself as a living, loving, intelligent, and potent point of presence of The Absolute Presence and Its Absolute Reality, it must be nourished according to that which the body actually needs and can truly utilize. The flesh of dead animals is not that, nor are the pus and mucus of cows, or any of the other things previously articulated.
Freedom and liberation are the desired conditions over oppression, suppression, repression, depression, and being pressed upon. It is not the freedom to eat poison, or to create whatever poison and push it that we should celebrate. It is the freedom to choose to eat that which is truly cleansing, nourishing, and revitalizing. Pure water, fruits, herbs, vegetables, sea vegetables, whole grains, and other alkalizing foods are the “foods” we should be consuming. It is the freedom of the intelligence of our being to function optimally and unobstructed that will bring us the greater rejoicing, prosperity, productivity, creativity, integrity, ethic, and morality. Liberation can best be facilitated at the cellular level, as the methodology of oppression has been to oppress at the cellular level.
