Wendell Berry’s Boutique

Organic
zero-waste stream
permaculturally designed
and cooperatively owned
farms
are no more or less Democratic-Boutique ecopolitics

Than AgriBusiness
extractive anti-ecological
rather than restorative-ecosystemic therapy,
competitively owned
and Business as Usual capitalist-colonizing designed
multinational conglomerates of anthro-hubris greed,
are no more or less Totalitarian Universal Supremacist ecopolitics.

I heard a young woman farmer
raising grass-fed cattle
on her small organic farm
designed to restore health to Southern
RedState topsoil,
as well as to her kids’ kids,
future farmers of Postmillennial America.

She believed the small scale
of her natural-spiritual restorative farming economy
placed her at a disadvantage
to receive government operational loans
as compared to multinational agribusiness conglomerates
using chemicals and pesticides
to kill topsoil
and extract short-term nutritional values
at long-term disinvested cost
to future healthy generations
and their dreams to health-wealth thrive.

A government farm subsidy expert responded:

If we don’t have enough capital to loan to everyone,
we are forced to give priority funding
to larger scale producers
with capacity to provide more than sufficient this-year nutrients
for our large domestic and foreign flooding markets.

She did not mention costs of growing obesity
and simultaneous malnutrition,
dual-poignant trends.

She did add,
The agricultural sector is complex,
composed of large agribusinesses
and small boutique operations,
and all are welcome by UncleDonald to apply,
after first saluting the TrumpTowers,

But she left unchallenged
the Farmer’s original matriotic complaint
of an uneven ecopolitical playing field
that actually favors large patriarchal corporate greed operations
invested in toxic
extractive
farming-as-raping sociopathic practices.

As I was listening to the farm subsidy expert
on competitive economics
make her case for giving separate but
only marginally unequal value
to these diverse nutritional scales,
small and more robustly large,
with distinct investment niches
available for public dollar support
of a presumably synergetic-democratic agricultural department,
without conceding undue favor to AgriBusiness multinationals.

Separatists, yes;
Supremacists for BusinessAsUsual, no.

I was starkly reminded
of an OldSchool KKK spokesman
who last year said
the WhiteBrother Klans are racial separatists
but not WhiteMale Supremacists.

It does feel like a pathological distinction
without a healthy,
non-WhiteWashed, difference
for present
or future lives
of and for thriving nutritional diversity,
deep sacred-secular ecological synergy.

When will pre-millennial threats
ever learn how to hear post-millennial therapies
as other than Boutiquely Synergetic?

I know…
I know!…
When we have to grow together
rather than continue failing apart.

Earth First

America First
is a RightWing monocultural intention
currently championed by Trumpians
and Republican Aristocracy of Evangelism
Tea Partiers,
by xenophobic paranoids
and sociopathic fascists,
by the economically blind
deaf
and angry
bigoted
terrified shouters;
just the opposite of dumb,
yet not cooperatively mindful either
of our global polycultural DNA roots
with universal democratic intent
toward international Golden Rules.

First,
“America” does not equal USA.
And America is even more than just North America,
including Central America,
now framed by a RightWing mental-spiritual Wall
against Mexico,
and, as for South America,
as any good Republican Catholic
(which may be a political-religious oxymoron)
or Protestant Evangelical
(which may also be a BadNews/GoodNews oxymoron)
will quickly remind us,
is the Wildly Wrong Hemisphere,
suspiciously socialist,
spiritually ambivalent,
even for a God
who was reputed to love
the entire Earth, equitably,
and is HimHerSelf more of a cooperativist,
in HisHer radically magnanimous love,
than an isolationist,

God does not keep all the best toys
for those awaiting
our long promised,
yet perpetually delayed,
Rapture.

This anciently felt Win-Win Rapture itself
has become more of a monocultural Win-Lose harvest
of pro-life WhiteHat born-agains
who define pro-life quite narrowly
to advocating for yet unborn human life
at risk of abortion,
without mentioning other
politically
and socially
and ecologically
and economically climatic abortions
on their peculiarly NonRapturous Way.

Also at risk of AmericaFirst monoculturalism,
which confines promised Rapture of Earth’s economy
to the competitive supremacy
of U.S. Trumpian BusinessAsUsual Elites,
the big and fat OnePercent
of our global colonizing US wealthy persons,
investing heavily in AmericaFirst policies,
which,
if more honest,
would be called
Top 1% of U.S. First and Last
PatrioticWinners v MatrioticLosers.

AmericaFirst
is a sugar-sweet way of saying
“The rest of y’all don’t matter.”

This is not the long promised Christian Rapture
of strong and healthy polyculturing democracy
as might possibly have been hoped for
by Constitution signing ForeFathers
born of more ecologically sound ForeMothers,
perennial gardeners and organic farmers
who were not, themselves,
particularly enamored of the top aristocratic OnePercent
in their 99% American nation-building immigrant time.

AmericaFirst
like all monocultural elitist intentions
and political investments,
forgets that economic and political walls,
once built,
work both ways,
and work against polycultural health
of economies
and political democracy of energy,
and positive nutrition ourselves,
ecology of global health care giving
and good Rapturous ecstatic climate receiving,
even for the Elite 1% of U.S. aristocracy,
and their potential 7th Generation grandchildren.

AmericaFirst
is aggressively rooted
in an inhumane replacement
of sacred restorative healing,
democracy’s inclusive vocation
of One Nation UNDER a Loving God,
within a LivingGod,
of and for a Positive Healthy PolyCulturing-Outcome God,

Setting aside secularized retributive justice models,
rooted more in God’s divinely-inspired Anger
as also Wrath against those who are too tolerant
of death
for Earth’s NonElite future generations
than actively pro-life of Earth
as iconic of all HerHis sacred forms
and flowing healthywealthy functions
toward regenerating Sacred EarthFirst.

We have no Christian-Republican Rapture on its way
if and when AmericaFirst finally arrives,
aborted from Earth’s diverse sacred natures
and cultures
and spirits
and dead on distinctly non-rapturous
anti-conservative of life arrival.

This is not just about climate change;
this AmericaFirst fake-rapture threat
predicts a future of ongoing
degenerative
climate pathology.

AmericaFirst is a punishing pathology
against all;
including the Elite U.S. OnePercent.

According to the Institute for Policy Studies,
already the twenty wealthiest U.S. citizens
have slightly more wealth to share among themselves
than do the lower 50% of U.S. residents,
who,
by the political way,
live disproportionately in RedStates
currently under advancing assault
by hurricanes and floods,
fires and tornadoes,
drought and shrinking aquifers,
chemically saturated rivers
and increasingly barren soil
and uprising polluted oceans.

But, hey,
what the self-inflicted hell;
AmericaFirst, right?
Never mind about Old School
restorative justice and peace,
nutritional polyculturing outcomes,
pro-sacred life
rather than limited to suboptimizing
anti-secularized death,
while supposedly worshipping a God
of EarthCreation and Love.

These are outmoded democratic ideals
for a healthy multicultural environment,
EarthFirst economy
and political subclimates.
And who retains any good faith
in such liberating,
but sadly fading,
Win-Win pipe dreams?
