Well Bredren, it is a dillema
I fo one struggle with technology
His Majesty helps I come to grips wid it
personally I would be happy living with family close to nature as possible
and yet I have tried that and it is hard, It took I close to death, having babies in the bush in a tiny shack,very little community for support,  having to collect wood every day for hot water, hitchhiking out for supplies
I loved the early nights and peace tho, and the fresh spring water....
I struggle with mass media and electro-magnetic pollution
however I love I sound system, I mic and recording gear, upliftment!
I would like to jam acoustic tho, hand drums guitar and voices,in natures ampitheatre; nice!!!!!!
give I a camp fire for the romance, and yet cooking on one is smoky and nerve racking with toddlers around.....
I am comfortable in nature and  yet dealing with the modern world is something Jah make we do
Give I I roots people to live simply with, I would love it, and yet spread Jah consciousness we must
so here we are.......
doing Jah works is what I and I live for
and we rest easy knowing we could cope with grass roots life and enjoy it
especially with conscious Ras type people around and a BIG garden!!!!
Integration and acceptance of ALL life has to offer gives we power to utilize and harness the tools life gifts we with...
to be creative and free, despite the circumstances
for true peace comes from within
and we won't see justice unless we use what is available to stand up and speak out for truth and rights
so we realize Jah gives we the internet and recording equipment to rally Jah children for our exodus
and to make a stand for what is right and truthful
Blessings

I think the internet is as Babylon as one can get.

But isn't it nice to be able to subvert Babylon in order to conspire to subvert Babylon?

God bless!

(Thank-you God for Al Gore who invented the internet :D :D :D :D :D A legend in his own mind, to be sure.)

I've seen Bob Marley on video in Caribbean Nights saying that technology is not the problem but man himself, the flesh, that don't know what he's dealing with.

I know Bob is not the ultimate authority on every issue but that make sense to me.

I would love to hear how you define babylon.

I know there is internet in Africa too. When you say rome do you mean the city?

Let me ask you this, Does running away hiding in the bush prevent the big international deforestation company from bringing their machinery?

I think it is possible to use technology in harmony with nature. After all, technology is just a tool.

I'm proud of my English culture and all the other cultures in me. I am not proud of what people from y culture choose to do:D as Bob Marley said " You should know where your coming from so you wouldn't have to ask me who the hell do i think i am"

Jah Bless

I define Babylon as anything that tries to downpress Rastafari and Jah people. Yes, the internet can be used for that, pornography, scamming and gambling. But using it to connect with others to share knowledge is about as bad in my eyes as having a conversation, just less personal.

It's a joke.

He has publicly credited himself with having invented the internet, yes.

Politicians do lie, eh?

God bless.

Greetings in the name of H.  I.  M

Jah gave man knowledge to know how to develop the Internet. 

Along with ITunes and face book and msn and all the others , embrace the new way of doing things but don't let it take
you over. 

I agree, the western way is not the problem its Babylons way you need out look out for, as it is alot harder to find. 
 

Bless.

Blessings,
  Let us now give the definition of western culture and then we can see if this Internet is strictly from there.  Is it not world wide web?.
  I and I knows that to say west we mean Babylon culture.  Is this acurate?, Is it only the "life styles of the rich and famous" that we regard as perverted?, The selfish, Gluttonous, excessive self centered?.  The USA?  Is that what we mean by "western" ?.
