What is the 1up Movement, and 1up Entertainment?

When I use the phrase, “stay 1up”, it means to stay focused on making positive self-elevation and social change.  It means to avoid the evils and traps of the world, and to think more critically, to make good decisions. Staying 1up means, avoiding the drama, confusion, deceptions, and daily pitfalls.  It does not mean to 1up someone in a malice way, or to out do someone, to belittle them, or to brag and boast in success.  

The idea of "The 1up Movement," influenced by the philosophies of the honorable Marcus Garvey, is for individuals and organizations, to collaborate, to enhance economic and social conditions, using a process of social entrepreneurship, while maximizing critical thinking techniques.  We do not promote any religious organization or theology, but we accept those who promote non-divisive values and morals, while acknowledging their creator.  Our codes, below, are the guidelines we expect all individuals involved in our movement to uphold, promote, and follow.  Strategically, we like to reach out to start up nonprofit organizations that have great missions and ideas for problem solving, but limited manpower and resources. 

Instead of waiting for financial resources from the government (or the establishment), we try to figure out ways to work together to create revenue, awareness, and to obtain resources.  We are anti capital greed, and pro social collaboration, wealth building, and sharing.  We encourage positive social change, and we denounce anything that has proven to be harmful and destructive, to enhancing the minds and lives of young men and women.  The book, "Overstanding With A 1up Vision, The Critical Thinking Approach to Liberation," and the articles I send out daily, reflect a new wave of effective media coverage, which highlights problems, but counters with solutions.  We avoid hate mongering and verbal attacks, while addressing real serious issues.  We allow debates, or perspectives, from both sides of the argument, to be presented side by side, for the readers to evaluate both sides of the coin, without using vulgar dialog and hateful rhetoric.  When interviewing musicians and entertainers, we go beyond the music, and we deal with issues about their family, and their codes and philosophies in life.  For those who may not be on board with the movement, we ask that they to try to be more conscious in the content of the work that they create, and to try to be involved in some of the activities that we create for social awareness.  1up Entertainment/Consulting is the organizational and business part of the 1up movement. Thank you for your time, and please contact us if you would like to build together. #RBG
