Here’s another installment of “Ask a Blogger”…where I ask my blogger friends questions to get to know them a little better. It also helps you, get to know them as well. Finding questions for Antonio over at Revolutionary Paideia to answer was hard because I wanted some good questions. After succeeding, I sent them and this is what I got in return!! Enjoy!!
1. What is your favorite quote? and why?
My favorite quotation, which was penned by Frantz Fanon, is as follows: “What matters is not to know the world but change it.” The reason this is my favorite quotation is Fanon gives a powerful call for people to go out and make change happen. Fanon makes clear that one does not need to know everything about the world to change it. This quotation implies that everyone has the potential to affect change. When I take on the challenging issues and problems of our postmodern epoch, this quotation from Fanon is there to uplift and inspire me to continue to do the things necessary to make a positive difference in the lives of people.
2. If you were forced to eliminate every physical possession from your life with the exception of what could fit into a single backpack, what would you put in it? and why?
The following items would be placed in my single backpack: bible, laptop, wallet, cell phone, and Fredric Jameson’s Postmodernism or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism. As a real Christian, the most important item I can put in my backpack is a bible, and as a real Christian I have a duty to read and study God’s Word without ceasing. As someone who loves to write and surf the internet, I must have a computer. The reason why I would put my wallet in the backpack is I need the money in it and the important identification artifacts in it. I need the cell phone to communicate with a number people and a number of people need to be able to contact me via telephone. Postmodernism or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism is the one book that changed my intellectual life. After reading this book, I begin to see all phenomena differently. I want to always be able to read and refer to this book.
3. If your life was a novel, what would be the title and how would your story end?
The title of the novel would be “Antonio Maurice Daniels: The Story of a Truly Authentic and Revolutionary Life.” The story would end with me serving as the President of the United States of America for two terms, and then me dying and going to Heaven.
Feel free to answer questions below. Be sure to click Antonio’s link and see what he’s all about…also follow him on twitter!! Also, I wanna thank you Antonio Maurice Daniels for agreeing to do this!!!
