Am I wrong to say that we need scientific socialism as opposed to sentamantal or romantic socialism or some weird cultural socialism/<quoted text>Yes, King called for a radical redistribution fo political and economic power from the haves to the have nots. He wa right and reactionaries like you and your right wing and racist co-workers are wrong.
When I say scientific socialism, I mean a socialism that is based on hard cold scientific reality. It is a reality that if we do not work, we do not eat. Somebody has to plant the seeds, care for and weed the crop and harvest the fruit. And when all the fails to produce sufficiently to feed everybody, new technology and new methods of production are in order.
Right now, Africa imports nearly 50% of the food our people eat. That means there is a shortage in food production. It is a scientific reality that if we harvest the water that is just below the surface in the Sahara Desert ( http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-1... ) This is what H .E. Brother Muamar Qaddafi did ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Man-Made_R... ) What Qaddafi did is the correct example. But it was only one small step in the right direction. What Qaddafi did is scientific socialism.
Also, what H.E. Comrade Gamal abd al-Nasir did was scientific socialism. He built to Aswan Dam Project in order to increase food production in Egypt.
Osagyefo Dr, Kwame Nkrumah did similarly. He built the Volta River Dam Project to increase food production and energy production.
The one common denominator in all of the projects I just mentioned is centralized planning. In other words, we must have a PLANNED economy. That is crucial to socialism and it is crucial to economic efficiency and increased production.
So what we have is a choice between begging the white man for crumbs off his table and increasing production by creating new wealth. Shall we give a man a fish so he can eat one day? Or shall we show a man how to fish so that he can eat forever"? Which is scientific and which is abstract foolishness based on wishful thing? It is wishful thinking if we expect the white man to solve our economic problems for us. We have to solve our own economic problems.
