Ok, let’s walk n’ talk.

Everything and everyone is “connected,” interwoven into the fabric of life. “Connections” and “relations” are everywhere, all around us. “Power” is an element of life that spreads all over the different realms, layers, and spheres of life. Individuals, and the organizations we build, and the nations we comprise, the institutions we construct which maintain our civilization are one and all “corruptible.” Thus, when power is accumulated, massed, and stockpiled - it tends to corrupt.

Vladimir Putin has audacious power, and the man has no limitations. He’s been allowed to amass Marvel comic book, evil, villain-like power, to deny the obvious truths, and insist his delusional propaganda be viewed as fact. He has the medieval tyrant power Trump yearns for, and millions of Americans want to give him. I think America would take Lord Trump and Emperor Putin over President Kamala Harris.

Donald Trump has amassed, by a vast array of malicious methods and devious ways, “power.” He did twist the Tea Party into his party. He did create a Real Estate/Branding empire with lies, schemes. His life is a non-stop con-game. He is, by mere definition, “white trash…with money,” and yet he has maneuvered and manipulated his way into becoming the face and symbol of all-American “White Power.”

And alas, Will Smith is an example of a man who has made an ass of himself because, yes, he’s amassed so much individual fame, wealth, and celebrityhood (power) that he and his wife’s lives reflect the adage of “oh how very odd are the rich” - they believe themselves to be above it all, “untouchable” if you will. The laws, rules, standards, norms, and values which apply to the masses, the little people … simply don’t apply to them. Will Smith is a very good actor, he’s not an Air Force test pilot, nor a Man in Black, or Ali or Richard Williams… nor the Fresh Prince of Belair. He’s just a really rich (powerful) man who’s full of himself.

It’s no deeper than that.

Putin, Trump, and Smith believe that they are different, better, have acquired, earned, and deserve to “do as they please,” as they will, without the “restrictions” that apply to all other people. Who are “they” to tell “them” that they can’t say or do... for instance, steal a nation or backhand a man because he verbally offends your wife.

In this new “woke” Black America, Jada could have verbally defended herself, no?

Both Putin and Trump basically want to “take a country back…” and make it theirs. And they are willing to accomplish their aim by any deviant and corrupt means they personally deem necessary. Both have raised genocide to get what they want. Trump by denying the Pandemic, and then allowing it to spread by minimizing and marginalizing it for personal gain, for power. Putin is openly and all so arrogantly waging “mass genocide” in the pursuit of … power.

Will Smith believes he had some “right,” some earned “privilege,” some authority to “take matters into his own hands,” and he played into the uncomplimentary notion of the “unleashed’ Black male aggression. He is the black alpha male who can’t hold his cool, his poise, his temper, his mouth, and instead, his primal, primitive nature not to be shamed and embarrassed, his manhood questioned, lashes out in a predictable and traditional violent gangster, aggressive manner.

Will exemplified to millions the widely held perception - You can take the him out of the jungle, ghetto, hood… but you can’t take hood, ghetto, or jungle out of him, no matter what his professional or financial standing.

Yes, it’s at least debatable: In an openly hostile land, we are our worst enemy. They beat us, we beat each other. Self-destruction, self-destruction… self-destruction - it comes in many different forms, shapes, and manners. Thank the almighty Gods Chris Rock is a bigger, better man who harbors both poise and character.

I’d also interject the obvious: these men are pretenders, synthetic, rubber, wood, not for real - fabricated and man-made. Contrived and concocted, hatched and handcrafted - myths, fakers, pretenders, actors… they’re not the guy next door, but the man of privilege and power. Remember the airline pilot who landed his plane on the 7/11 Slushy Hudson River off Midtown Manhattan, he’s a real man, not these powerful, yet plastic men.

Putin, Trump, and Will Smith: Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.
