GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 142: DR. RODNEY SHABAZZ - BABYLON INFILTRATION OF REGGAE CULTURE




When corporate and control-system meddling and subversion has been present in every other popular music genre, why would anyone reasonably expect things to have been any different in Reggae - a music and culture which has captivated many millions of fans and followers all over the world?

Here to discuss the various manipulations is the New York-based author, lecturer and black cultural studies scholar R.A Ptahsen, more commonly known as Rodney Shabazz. He offers a masterclass overview of how reggae music evolved out the earlier Ska and Rocksteady styles, (and before that, mento music,) and how all remain rooted in African cultural traditions. We also discuss how Reggae represents a culture and a lifestyle beyond the music, intrinsically linked to the Rastafari religion and the deification of the long-time Emperor of Ethiopia Haile Selassie, and the ceremonial smoking of marijuana.

Dr. Shabazz casts a critical eye over the emergence of the Reggae sub-genre known as Dancehall which appeared in the 1980s, its lyrics rooted in vulgarity, and which largely replaced conscious message-music as the pre-dominant expression of the music. This occurred soon after the untimely deaths of Bob Marley and Inner Circle’s Jacob Miller, with Peter Tosh’s demise following a few years later, and Dr. Shabazz raises suspicions about three of the most politically active of Jamaica’s musicians all meeting early ends. We re-visit aspects of Bob Marley’s terminal cancer. Also coming under scrutiny are Chris Blackwell, founder of the hugely influential, Island Records, and David Rodigan, the immensely popular British Reggae DJ. With both coming from white, privileged backgrounds and military links, is there more to know about how they achieved their respective prominent positions than first meets the eye?

The Harvard Business School report into manipulating the black music scene of the early 1970s, as commissioned by Columbia Records Group and refernced in the interview, is discussed in this article:

OCCULT ASPECTS OF THE BEATLES & THE McCARTNEY CONSPIRACY: A PRESENTATION BY MARK DEVLIN



I'll be taking a new presentation on occult aspects of The Beatles, incorporating the McCartney Deception, on the road for four UK dates in the near future. Matt Sergiou, proprietor of the Occult Beatles and Conspiro Media blog sites, will be joining me for the Bristol date. Full details as below.


OCCULT ASPECTS OF THE BEATLES & THE McCARTNEY CONSPIRACY: A PRESENTATION BY MARK DEVLIN

Were the Beatles really four regular lads from Liverpool who, against all the odds, just happened to become the most popular and influential group of all time? Or is there more to know about how they achieved their fame, and what their ultimate role really was at the hands of the occult practitioners who really control the corporate music industry?

On that note, one of the most enduring ‘conspiracy theories’ maintains that the real Paul McCartney died in 1966 and was replaced by an impostor who has been playing the public role ever since. Preposterous as this may at first sound, there is actually multiple forensic evidence to show that, whatever the circumstances, there has been more than one ‘Paul McCartney’ presented to the public these past few decades.

Mark Devlin, whose books Musical Truth Volumes 1 and 2 document the dark side of the music industry, will present the evidence for a switch, and consider the circumstances in which this could have been achieved.

'I DO NOT CONSENT' T-SHIRTS



I’ve had a batch of these ‘I Do Not Consent’ T-shirts made up, suitable for sporting at all kinds of events and situations. These represent a simple but direct statement of response to the tenets of tacit approval and presumed consent under which the “elites” arrogantly carry out so many of their activities.

By making it clear that we do not choose ANY any part in their deceptive and manipulative agendas, we are making it clear that THE ENTIRETY of the karmic judgement for their wrongdoings and violations of our Natural Law rights, falls fully on to them. No more passing the buck (as they see it) through trickery and deception. I feel this is a powerful message communicated. 

And if nothing else, the slogan will stand as as a useful conversation starter with strangers!

The shirts are available in Medium, Large and Extra Large sizes, priced at £4.50 plus P&P. The lettering is printed front and back, black text on white shirt. If anyone wishes to purchase any, please inbox me, or send an e-mail to markdevlinuk@gmail.com

If, as I've comprehended it, the dark controllers take consent and acquiescence to be our default position unless stated otherwise ... here we are stating otherwise, beyond any doubt!
