Decoding NRM’s Marxism Marijuana – Daily Monitor
We have endured four national days of prayer since March of last year, when Covid-19 presented itself, without the other Three Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Each of these national days of prayer has been declared a public holiday so that people, already in confinement, can take a break after a break!
This meant the Ugandans had four extra days during which they could not earn the money to keep their heads above the rising tide of NRM disorder.
As might be expected, Poverty did not take four days off to observe this holiday as well.
However, the NRM members joined their sticky fingers in prayer to ask God to help those who could not, thanks to the holidays, help themselves.
After all, the NRM’s overall plan is to sculpt the nation’s superstructure (its beliefs, etc.) like the clay feet of the NRM so that when reckoning comes we all fall with it.
To understand this, let’s take a step back.
In 1986, if you remember, the NRM came to power under the blood red banner of Marxism to rule an “incurably religious” nation.
For those who don’t know, Marxists are atheists. Thus, the NRM was led by a group of ungodly Communists who believed that religion was “the opium of the people”.
By their understanding, therefore, religion does the same to the head of a believer as the weed does to the reality of a pot fan.
Perhaps this is why the Uganda Times quoted candidate Yoweri Museveni at a rally in Gulu on October 6, 1980, as saying: “The UPM was founded to eliminate ‘marijuana’ from the confusion of the head of Ugandans.
This confusion was exacerbated, if you will, by some NRM leaders declaring that Museveni had been in power for so long because “God chose him.”
Allied to this, many religious sects in Uganda reinforce materialism. They are therefore essential to the power of our plutocracy (rule of the rich).
This materialism is best understood by the definition of sin as an inappropriate relationship between flesh and spirit.
Sin thus occurs when attachment to the things of this world, as opposed to the life of the spirit, becomes our primary focus.
Sin is also propagated when “heaven” is used to describe a physical place where believers gather after death and not a spiritual destination that transcends the physical by having no physical location.
However, the religious of the NRM remind us that this paradise is a pie in the sky. We must therefore give up any slice of life on earth to enjoy it.
Therefore, being humble (reading poor) prepares us to be received into a physical space called the hereafter.
Describing this space as a physical place, instead of a spiritual destination, places matter on the mind. Thus, our desire for material things is subconsciously elevated above the spiritual.
Being humble but hungry, we are ready to sell ourselves to the powerful. They in turn make us believe that Heaven and Hell are places rather than states of mind.
Our consciousness is subsequently diminished in favor of their increasing wealth.
The NRM rejoices in this because it knows that if people raise their consciousness, they will be able to subordinate the material to the spiritual.
By extension, they will know that Heaven and Hell are not physical places but intangible expressions of life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness or its absence.
Being more aware, Ugandans will be less sensitive to favoritism and the wait-and-see mentality that makes us abandon this world for the next.
When that happens, it will be our turn to “pull ‘marijuana out of the confusion of the head” of our leaders.
