The Origins of The Phrase Rock and Roll
Although common folklore will explain that the phrase “rock and roll” is derived from how slaves inside the hull of slave ship, got tossed around by the “rock and roll” motion of the waves, the true origin of the phrase is much older. Rock and roll describes the primary task of the ancient slave class, quarrying ROCK and then ROLLING it to the job site for slave master. This of course should give anyone great pause as a drunken party goer stumbles by over the weekend, screaming….”rock and roll”. It’s pretty safe to assume that modern slaves don’t know they’re shouting praises to the ancient slave life. How about the person who camps out all night to get tickets for the “Rolling Stones”, someone singing along to John Cougar’s “R-O-C-K in the USA” or a rebel picking up a copy of “Rolling Stone” magazine? How about dancing to Bob Segar’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” or yelling “Rock on!” at the local ROCK concert? Our handlers laugh at the slaves, because they can’t connect the dots, see the big picture or understand how the power of language can enslave through the very DNA itself. It’s the weekend (the weakened) where the modern slave often parties like a ROCK STAR, because their life is empty and meaningless. Take a look around, think harder and unslave. Let slave master know you see his tricks and throw down your shackles.
