Empowering Integrity

Verbal microaggressions
[You are a liar!]
neglect non-violent humanity
as macroaggressions
[uninvited explosions with intent to kill],
rather far beyond verbal bullying,
physically retaliate against abusive inhumanity,
seldom too fastidious
about recognizing collateral damage
to people
pets
plants
planet Earth.

Critical mistrust
[how does this defend democracy?]
may yet remain mindful of Golden Rules,
active hope for our own
and Other’s cooperatively-owned
transparent
vulnerable
healthy future

In a wide and deep in-between room
estate
State bounded by blind trust
unearned by prior relationship experience
[forgiving kleptocracy
while continuing to empower future theft]
are more typically associated with learned win/win memories
in prior associated categories of relationship
[I suppose censure could be merciful shaming]–
these become compassionate benefits,
compromised by doubt
[requiring apology to global victims
suffering from narcissistic abuse
of climate-healing powers].

But self-promoting oligarchy
leads more robustly toward active distrust of those who
dissonantly
and consistently play win/lose
[with well-being, health, and universal prosperity
stipulated goals of democratic constitutions]
apparently too comfortable with their own retributive
disempowering addictions
to see and hear and smell and taste
ecological and theological win/win health benefits
of restoring interdependent peace

For liberal love resilience
and conserving resonance
through cooperatively co-invested justice–

Non-violently impeaching win/lose compromises
against democracy’s multicultural health benefits
without lose/lose
micro- and macro-aggressive doubt
about what behaviors support healthier democracy
and what responses further feed pathological plutocracy.
