Funny...somehow "applying ideology on everything" sounds familiar to me...where?...
...oh YEAH!!

From all of your posts on this board.

Way to think outside the box. DO BETTER yourself.

Applying your worldview to everyone/everything else is a WESTERN practice, and guess what? You're doing it.

>What "book of life" is this?

Sorry, but this is a pathetic response to a serious question and a good point. I've been studying African music intensively for three straight years now.

There are PLENTY of revolutionary things you could say about cultural life and recreation that would still open people's minds (I'm assuming that's a main objective of yours/ours).

Granted, you may know less about those aspects of Afrikan life than the philosophical/spiritual/ethical/political aspects, but then I'd suggest "I don't know" or "I'm still learning that" as appropriate responses.

Another reactionary response to an even BETTER question. Why don't you give us your opinion an "what the rewards of discipline" are? I think that'd be valuable...or at least a lot more valuable that castigation.

This is hilarious. hothyng asks "what does Laila offer other than shouting 'you're gross!' at everyone," and after you give a terrific answer to that question, you turn around and shout "YOU'RE GROSS!!!" at him.

Yes, I'm positive that those two words provided many solutions to circumventing ILL HEALTH in Africa.

Actually, this strikes me as a SUPREMELY European/colonialist way of thought.

You can DO BETTER if you want to, but if you don't just continue on.

LEFT side of the bedroom, fool!
What?! What?!
