PLATE ANEW, part 2

The "L" in PLATE ANEW is labor. Doology puts labor in its proper perspective. The witchcraft makers have used its white shadow's manifestation to make us believe that when we take a "siesta" (rest or nap after lunch) from our labor for ourselves is the same as when we go on "vacation"(interval of time devoted to rest from working for others.

Doology sees siesta and vacation in terms of when labor promotes our development and vacation as a rest from developing other people's development. Siesta and vacation put labor in a perspective of who benefits from our labor and what is done with our labor.

Labor is physical or mental work. In Western or European economic theory, labor is the human resource. For example, when you apply for a job, your first contact is the human resources department.

Africans in the diaspora have always used a large expenditure of labor in comparison to capital. In fact, for many years, we were "capital labor " (i.e. slaves). We were money to be uses by others as they saw fit and other labor as others demanded and commanded.

Siesta was not allowed and vacation was given at the convenience of the master/boss. Doology says that we must use our physical or mental abilities to build power for our people. We can take a siesta when we desire and when we are on their designated "vacation," we can labor for ourselves. Labor must be more than just to obtain material "playthings."

Historically, the mental destruction that has existed in the African diaspora has allowed us to see others' labor as being valuable and our labor for ourselves to be not valuable at all.

We must convert our love to labor for others into a love to labor for ourselves.
