Intro: Another black man shot in the back by a cop while trying to retreat. The difference, the shooting and attemted cover up were caught on camera plain as day! Black, brown and poor white men are being killed frequently and without any regard to our liver. We are but lambs to slaughter. If we obey the law and act peacefully, we are treated as criminals, imprisoned, shot and killed without any recourse. Why does this repeatedly occur? Because we allow it to occur. How do we allow it to occur? By not working together to end our common threat…that is how we keep allowing the murders of our sons. I’ve written and spoken on this for years but I will speak on it again… The lone wolf gets devoured. In other words, always run in a pack! Nature has proven that working together to protect each other is a much better survival strategy. In the real world, you have to run in a pack to be successful. In other words, if you want to survive and get ahead, you should be part of a team.
Lone Wolves get Depowered
Lone wolves get devoured in hostile environments. They get devoured because a lone wolf simply cannot compete with a pack of predators. Likewise, a single person, no matter how strong, will lose every time against 10 organized people.
Nature is a tremendous teacher. If you look around, you will see that the most successful animals in nature, the ones at the top of the food chain, tend to be pack animals. Lions run in packs. Wolves run in packs. Tigers don’t run in packs. Tigers are on the endangered species list! In the ocean, dolphins swim in packs. Orcas swim in packs. They are the most successful mammals in the sea. They protect each other. They hunt together. They fight together. And they win together. Survival is winning. The great white shark on the other hand, is a lone Wolf. It swims alone, eats alone, and roams alone. The great white shark is on the endangered species list. As powerful as it is, a great white shark is still vulnerable to creatures that run in packs like dolphins, Orcas and humans! Nature teaches us that it is much better; you are much more likely to survive, if you run in pack and work together. So, if you want to increase your chances to survive, you should run in a pack. Run in a pack.
Lone wolves get devoured, so don’t be a lone Wolf. Run in a pack! Author Rudyard Kipling said it best in his immortal work called, “The Jungle Book”. He wrote a poem called, “The the Law of the Jungle” that started like this:
The Law of the Jungle
(From The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling)
Now this is the Law of the Jungle —
as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper,
but the Wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk
the Law runneth forward and back —
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack…
Money, Power, and Political Sway
Money, Power, and Political Sway can be built much quicker when you run in a pack so, run in a pack not only for physical survival, run in a pack to acquire Money, Power and Political Sway. The reason is simple, you have more people power. You can get a lot more done when you have more people with a focused, common purpose.
More people means more possible votes, which moves politicians. More people means more fundraising ability, which meads more power to get rid of the people, politicians and policies that hurt us. More people and votes mean more power to remove those that abuse us and anyone that tries to keep our abusers in power. More people organized to protect us means more protection for us.
Money, Power, and Political Sway can be built, quickest when you run in a pack so, run in a pack, not only for survival, run in a pack to acquire Money, Power and Political Sway. Teamwork is the key.
How to Build a Pack
Run In A Pack. To run in a pack, you must learn to build a pack! To do so, find people with the same or similar problems. Why? A person with the same problem as you is more likely to join your team if you show them a solution to your mutual problem.
For example, groups of Black, Hispanic and Poor White men have all complained of abuse at the hands of the police for decades, but they are still being harassed, abused and even killed. In the past, they have tried to talk to the police to no avail. For years they have been ignored. So, they form an organization made up of men in similar circumstances whose purposes are:
1. To remove abusive police officers from office.
2. To raise money and votes for friendly political members and elected officials.
3. To provide manpower for voting drives and voting support.
4. To connect to local radio, digital, Social Media and TV media.
Get everyone to understand that we don’t just do walks, we protect our interest by removing our abusers and non-supporters from office.
People with the same or similar problems are a great resource when starting an effective team or Pack. To run in a pack, you must learn to build a pack! To do so, start by finding people with the same or similar problems!
The lone wolf gets Devoured just as we are seeing everyday on the news. Black, Brown and Poor White men are abused and killed with no recourse. We get no protection from authorities, so we must be our own protection. The best protection is and has always been, unification…becoming a Pack for a common cause…Protection.
So always run in a pack! Forget the nonsense that teaches you the exact wrong lesson! That lone-wolf nonsense that teaches you to go it alone, do-it-yourself, it’s you against the world will get you killed with no recourse! It is teaching you the absolute best way to get killed and be unsuccessful in the real world. In the real world, you have to run in a pack with common purpose to be successful. All successful businesses are packs…Microsoft, Apple…successful sports are packs…NBA, NFL, etc…Political Parties…Republicans and Democrats. If you want to be safer, run in a pack with others that share your need…protection. Be part of a team. Teams build dreams. Lone wolves get devoured. Develop and Nurture a Pack Mentality!
