Note: Title and use of “empathy” influenced by Michael E Morrell’s interesting “Empathy as Democracy”.
I don’t think it’s just me.
I find myself challenged to change LeftBrain cognitive beliefs,
languaged abstractions of personal knowledge,
perhaps because it is not possible to change Right Brain’s
where dipolar co-arising mutual immunity
does not raise dissonance as noisy pathology.
I discover this issue as more of a question
about changing my feelings
by changing my beliefs about feelings
as something that could be wrong,
should be different, in a healthier, better, more beautiful world,
would be better if I were a better person,
we would feel and think better, if we could comprehend
our PermaCultural Golden SelfAsOther Political/Economic Rules
of dialectic ecology,
political power trends
with economic reiteratively polyculturing regenerating relationships.
Sometimes when I empathically feel like why and why not
I believe something is not right
about what I think I should rationally define as correct,
according to Business As Usual LeftBrain deductive dominance,
should be truth,
emerge as permaculturally orthodox co-empathic dominance,
unquestionable feeling/belief in health v pathology,
then I also think my RightBrain feelings
of not right-true
shadowing LeftBrain cooperative-affective dissonant information
of not Left-Right balanced languaged cultural belief,
truth-statement belief with empathic trust v. mistrust,
distrust as untrust,
chronically evolves as anti-trust, hatred,
in more climatically critical political and economic
as ecological events.
I am reading Dr. Cyrus Ernesto Zirakzaden’s excellent
“Social Movements in Politics”.
The more I read,
the more troubled I feel about this choice of title.
It doesn’t feel like it fully matches
the rich evolutionary messages unfolding behind this title.
Zirakzaden, using Business As Usual academic-analytical narrative voice,
articulates the evolution of West Germany’s political/economic
the prelude understory leading toward more recent historical-cultural emergence of the Green Party,
in the late twentieth century
since the emergence of what became,
as far as I recall from my religious history lessons,
the Christian Party.
Given the enculturing titles of West Germany’s social-political systemic structures,
if feels likely many Greens
would prefer Zirakzaden’s choice of title to have been
“Political Movements within Judeo-Christian Organized Crimes Against Nature”.
How I feel about this story
influences how I think I would best step into it,
empathize within these shifting thoughts and feelings,
most informed by empathic poli-economic trust
in healthy feelings,
in feelings which are healthy by definition of their accuracy,
speaking to pathological appositional beliefs as dis-regenerative,
Yet, this empathy requires a poli-economic choice
between using Advocate v Academic Voice,
at least on paper,
or invested in our great transitional cloud of unknowing.
The Green Party emerges as a social-political movement
away from Judeo-Christian Traditions
of SemiOrganized Dissonant Stewardship,
problematic where divorcing human nature from co-arising sacred nature
of nondual nature/spirit biosystems,
love as synergy,
spiritual minds as natural sensory transregenerational bodies,
Green as notnot Revelations
of Organized Crimes Against OurSelves,
all Earth Tribes,
Earth and her regenerative open-solar co-arising
nondual EcoLogical EcoSystem.
As an EarthTribe global citizen,
reading about W. Germany’s Green emergence,
I empathize with the Green Party
as Political Movement Heroine/Hero
virally inserting ourselves
within every pore and cell
of our Elder Judeo/Christian/Islamic Story
including Crimes Against Earth
now struggling to change our poli-economic key
from minor to major PermaCultural Development
as CoEmpathic Creative Design
and Primal Purpose for Politics
as a Science;
an EcoTherapeutic Political Tao of Science.
In “Trust in Black America”
Dr. Shayla C. Nunnally explores comparative politics of trust,
and probably hate as measured in recent survey samples–
where haters would be unlikely to erupt from sinister closets.
Here we find political trust,
and lack thereof,
follows ecopolitical history,
power-over through Judeo-Christian-Islamic ownership
as the full story about stewardship,
while power-with through empathy
co-arises nondual mutually subsidiary mentorships of ecotrust,
most richly deeply found in cultural-ethnic historical conclaves
within embryonic Earth’s OrganicTribal Congress
of ReGenerate-Healthy Evolution.
Even so, my historically nurtured empathic trust,
like everyone else’s,
begins in embryo,
the dynamic fractal-dialectic existentialism of DNA
I believe and feel intends to grow out
as polypathically as politically and economically possible
from that safe healthy epicenter,
ecocenter of healthy life.
Empathic Trust is cognitive-affective default
on the love-peace side of history,
absorbing enslaving other-as-self hate,
anger-fear appositional warring about incommensurable positions
yet still within our own political-economic identity equation.
If we need trusting beliefs
to fully embrace empathic feelings,
do we also need untrusting absence of belief
to fully embrace feelings of mutual immunity,
internal ambiguities of unresolved ego/eco
Self/Other ownership of mutually nutritional trust?
A mix of more active distrusting juxtapositions about truth
and more moderate mistrusting justapositions about proportion and aesthetics of truths;
diverse political positions internally and externally conversing,
noticing and listening for Golden co-empathic trust
to follow the light.
Healthy robust empathy of embryos,
is recognized by its instinctive curiosity,
absence of well-articulated avoidance behaviors.
Absence of trust is learned
through parenting and other enculturing choices,
as was ownership divorced from empathy.
I live more curiously,
actively looking and listening for
multicultural political and economic agendas
and intentions toward healthy wealth,
yet still within this last remains
of a climatically dissembling premillennial Abrahamic Creation Story
of human nature struggling with love
as if we were not anthro-children of Earth’s sacred econature.
As Abrahamic Patriots
evolve toward Green Matriots,
we are finding older ways of reweaving Judeo-Christian and Islamic intergenerational history
with Eastern Basic Trust as Empathic Democracy.
