Afrofuturism class, ass. #2

Supporting the homeless community and avoiding government control would make it necessary to create Earthseed. People who are homeless need to understand their life’s worth. They are also more willing to work hard to be in a better position, instead of relying on the government for the things they won’t do and have’t done. The government’s deceitfulness and untrustworthiness would lead me to not count on their authority, but on the authority of God and God only.
One Earthseed quote I would apply to my community is “God is power.” My people need to know and be reminded of this verse when times get hard, life is dim, when some of us die or get discouraged. “God is power” means with God we have some of his power and he can lead us in his strength. Another quote I would apply to to the community is “A gift of God may sear unready fingers.” I would emphasize these words to prepare my community about their callings in life. Maturity is paramount, and so is a life of fearlessness. People can miss or fumble the cards they’re holding because they’re either immature of afraid. I don’t want my people to be afraid of their gifts or be unprepared to step into their calling. Using their gifts could prolong and save not only their lives, but their communities.
I would create my Earthseed community underground. There would be a few entrances, the place would be booby-trapped, and watchers posted outside and inside in case of intruders. Anyone who can listen and follow directions from the outset can join Earthseed. Any hint of untrustworthiness and they’re out or never in. Trust is important, a life or death matter. Only series inquiries can apply.
As leader of the sect I would be upright, poised, strong and firm. I would be respected in speech and battle.
I would build an underground travel system with several stations and small electric cars traveling from city to city, state to state. Each station would have cars where we would switch so the other cars could charge.
We’d survive because the members would see how God provides if they just use their gifts. They would witness themselves and know that the God I’ve taught about is real. With our gifts we can attain all resources and recruit those who already have money and resources.
My community would focus on education, spiritual and worldly. They’d be split in sections. If they’re physically strong they would do physical work: farming, building homes on land for us to use and some to sell, build cars, etc. If they’re smart, they would lead those in the community to identify their gifts and put them in the right place.
