"BLT" what is it?

I know what the letters stand for, but what does it mean to us?

The groups who practice it generally deny it to be a form of socialism or communism, but it sure doesn't sound like it is market driven economics or recognition!

Like so many puzzles of this nature the main proponents of each side always use the extreme examples to describe the other. Such things as the Robin Hood theory are used---take from the rich and give to the poor.
Or, market justice is crooked just like the crooks who take advantage of it, and thusly is unfair.

As I see it the extremes need to be thrown out immediately. There is a reasonable expectation for everyone to have enough air to breathe, enough water to drink, enough clothes to be comfortable, shelter to use, and sufficient plain food on which to survive. Health care and suffering should pose no arguments! We can not depend upon individuals who have these things to share them with every one who doesn't. This must be a government function.

However, sufficient incentives to do better must be available in order to get out of the bare minimums furnished. I'm not suggesting that people who are supplied the minimums must wear a badge indicating who they are, but a path to betterment must be desirable.

Organized demanding of wealth and recognition sharing only pumps up the rhetoric and ill feelings of both sides. In order to avoid a group such as reverend Wright's group, who are generally better off than most, to stimulate others of their race to action for sharing wealth, we need to take away their life support! What is that? Those in real need, of course.

A combination in the correct items and quantity of democracy, socialism and communism can work better than any one system alone.
We can't vote on everything, we can't steal wealth from those who use it wisely, we can't allow our nation's defenses to weaken--but at the same time they must no have authority over us.

Especially if you load it up with extra mayonnaise, preferably Hellmans.

I have read your references before.

They really say nothing except black, black, black.

To say for instance that they believe in loyalty to Africa doesn't mean anything specific to me. What does that mean? Why would they then not want to just go live there?
