Critical NonViolence Theory

Compassion does not speak in judgment;
at least not before sufficient listening
on the extending edge of gratitude.

Therapeutic sciences now speak
as one with inter-religious mystics,

That kindness
is physically and mentally therapeutic
for those who receive
and especially those who adeptly give,
facilitate,
mediate
mentor,
empower
while cooperatively enlightening.

While we readily see this bilateral correlation
of kind-therapy
and mean-pathology
when counseling couples
and quarreling kids
and mediating sometimes ancient
multigenerational family disputes,

We less often consider historical
and larger present day applications
to things like slavery
colonization
criminalization
patriarchalism
parochialism
evangelism
apartheid
white supremacy
homophobia
sexism
racism

Competitive capitalist drive to win/lose survive
without cooperative communion to win/win thrive

These utillitarian
punishing
competitive issues are all antithetical to kindness
of multiculturing communions,
to the exercise of healthy democratic communion,
to resiliently transgenerational wealthy communities

Where compassion seldom speaks
in win/lose evolving/devolving judgment,
and not before sufficient win/win
deep dynamic
revolutionary listening.
