colonized mindIn a recent interview with Br. Usama Canon, he mentioned the need for Muslims to come to the table, and decide what’s on the menu.  The notion begs us to answer if we are thinking at all about the forward possibilities for Islam in America, or if we live in a state of surrender to the current status.  Here are some observations that may help us examine our mindset, as individuals in a society of apathy, and begin making-up our minds about what we want out of life, religion, politics, education, economics, and human civilization.

Noam Chomsky “All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.” 
― Noam Chomsky

Richard Yates

“It’s a disease. Nobody thinks or feels or cares any more; nobody gets excited or believes in anything except their own comfortable little God damn mediocrity.” ― Richard YatesRevolutionary Road

Leo Buscaglia

“…the opposite of love is not hate — it’s apathy. It’s not giving a damn. If somebody hates me, they must “feel” something … or they couldn’t possibly hate. Therefore, there’s some way in which I can get to them.” ― Leo Buscaglia

Abraham Lincoln“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.” ― Abraham Lincoln

“A wise man is the one who calls himself to account and strives in noble deeds to benefit him after death; and the foolish person is the one who subdues himself to his temptations and desires and seeks from Allah the fulfillment of his vain desires”.
― Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)
If the world is going to the devil, they alone can save it, for they alone possess the standard by which civilisation should be judged, and they alone are able to produce a complete alternative system of civilisation, claiming the divine sanction (a system which has worked with wonderful success in times past and, being adaptable to the needs of any age), may reasonably be expected to work with wonderful success in times to come. Which cannot be said of all the schemes of Western revolutionaries that have so far, when put into practice, always failed to add a little to the sum of human happiness.”
– Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall (May Allah have Mercy on him)

Are our minds colonized by fatalism?

We have to ask “What are the Possibilities” again !
