Liberal Love’s Failure

One answer to Patrick Deneen’s question,
Why Liberalism Failed,
not necessarily opposed to Deneen’s own
more LeftBrain position,
yet considerably shorter,
is:

Profoundly democratic liberalism,
like Christianity,
has failed because it has not been multiculturally tried,
to paraphrase anti-colonialism
and non-violent communicating
Mahatma Gandhi.

Strangely,
this may also be a kind of corollary
to respond to a different title,
How the West was Won,
which would thereby postulate
How the West was Lost
by Win/Lose capitalist pretensions
to overpower Win/Win resilient integrity.

Type A ReValues Type B

You’ve heard
and 2020 seen
and perhaps even felt a dichotomy
between Type A and Type B personalities?

A is for Alpha-yang.
S/he couldn’t possibly be more uncomfortable
with WesternWhite male nationalistic narcissistic supremacy
when it comes LOSER!!! down on us
from on financially wealthiest privileged kleptomania high,
like a camouflaged fat fox
in our own ego’s egg-home.

But,
when I am ruling my Type A and Type B roost,
then my ego feels marvelously content
and prosperous,
except for worries that I need to hoard
and pro-actively defend,
to self-righteously protect
what is my nest-egg by right of winning
in an otherwise losing economic policy
and aristocratic history
of merited empowerment
earned by right of Type A Win/Lose competitive birth survival,

And not earned
by repressed way
to keep ego cooped and cowed inside
an otherwise A/B Open WholeSystem feeding range.

Which brings us to Type B organic WinWin optimizing health performance.
The cooperative wealth vocations
for egg-home sanctuary lovers
within our unredeemed Type A Western machination mists
and Win/Lose myths
of ultimate Lose/Lose EarthTribe theological devolution,
like a healthy egg
without a wealthy incubator nest.

Where trusted rights of democratic healthcare’s curious induction,
WinWin co-reception
listen carefully
before non-violently speaking wrongs
against health care giving
paid forward investments,
Type B cooperative
eco-systemic feminist flow-courage,
organic, not mechanistic,
regenerational,
not degeneratively depreciated mechanical
egg-harvesting machines.

Slow-grown Win/Win evolution
toward all Type A/B Win/Win resilience
re-opens resonant windows
of self/other compassion consciousness,

Mindful of positive-deviant Type A/B personalities
competing against Earth’s failing health-time
for Yang/Yin cooperative
ego/eco-systemic climax climates,
trans-regenerative within
as without
as within
as transubstantiating Here/Now
green
organic
communal
outside sanctuary resilience,

Alpha/Omega dipolar co-arising
regeneratively recycling
Either/Or with Both/And Left/Right complex resolutions,
redundantly resilient Type B integral health-reception
as also Type A diverse wealth inception.

Following healthy egalitarian lights
toward wealthy interdependent brights
of ultra-violet
non-violent A/B
Win/Win DNA
egg-sanctuary EarthTribe inception.

The Bird Feeder

Sometimes,
not often enough,
I stop my morning routine
to watch the feeding drama breathe feathered flurries in and out,
on,
and under,
my side-yard bird feeder

Outside my kitchen windows
over this morning’s sudsy sink,
looking across a twinkling white field
of early March snow,
simply breathing us all in,
boundary framed inside/outside
by my southern neighbor’s brown-stained fence.

I find myself aggressively prejudiced
against the voracious grey squirrel invaders.
NonElite sparrows share my disappointment
with squirrelish selfish ways.

Usually the squirrels scavenge the ground
and snow below my feeder,
my free-will offering
intended to seduce cardinals
and woodpeckers
and finches
and, yes, the humble brown sparrows,
whose ghreat number of heads,
present today and missing tomorrow,
healthy and harmed,
is indeed an epic mystery
offered in return for my pre-invested feeder.

But, one squirrel,
who usually shows up with a friend,
maybe a girlfriend,
I don’t really know
the texture of their ongoing harvesting journey,
reaping through family life,
romance,
play,
foraging for nutritional climax

But, regardless,
This one squirrel likes to challenge
my daily vegetable-oiled
round
brown
metal pole
that holds a clear plastic feeder
enclosed by a squirrel-deterring wire defense,
which acts more like a perch for equi-poised access
than an effective wall
against unwelcome over-consuming rodents.

I am equally at war with crows,
not because I don’t like them as a species,
which, unfortunately, may be my inhospitable issue
about greedy squirrels,
but because crows travel in aggressive gangs.

And, they don’t live here, in my felt ownership sphere,
They hang around this side of the river
but they don’t live in my neighborhood
because they aren’t suitable
for any one properely humane place.
They need a grander sense of cooperative space.

Rowdy crows do, occasionally, flock and swarm in
to clean out my one inadequate consumer-feeder
and produce poop on everything in sight
but I do not tolerate these assaults
in silent Win/Lose acquiescence.

I run out
to shout
against them.

They listen and rise
to move away
but watch and wait to see and hear
if I will continue this lively scarecrow battle.
Which seems to mutually please us
to repeat twice,
or even thrice.

I repeat these roaring toothless threats,
Until we win together,
drawing more appropriately apart.

Then, too,
I notice some of the blue-jays are more tolerant of diversity
while others poke at smaller birds.
This bothers me.
If some can get along,
why not Win/Win all?

Still,
I seldom intervent.
We have only two blue-jay couples,
so I put out plenty for all
If we are patient enough
to work and play and breathe around each other.

The mourningdoves always salvage off the ground,
winter through summer
They look fat
and dark suit preacherly
as they waddle
and forage what their more flamboyantly aviary cousins
leave for them
underneath my humble feeder.

So little consumer invested
for so much dramatically productive grace,
mutually feeding place.

Yet, I still wonder
why I am so incensed
about the scandalous squirrel
who defies my obviously over-powering will
to not feed him here,
or anywhere
in my garden
or on my struggling fruit and nut trees.

I suppose rodents remind me
too much
of my me-feeder consumptive shamelessness.

Developing Healthier Systems

System integrity can grow more deeply resonant
only as diversity grows more widely interdependent.

Diversely rich integrity
longs to universally emerge
unitarian yin-inclusive
and not uniformly yang-dominant,
exclusive
privileged
supremely kleptocratic.

An economic and ecological reason
Win/Lose capital wealth-accumulation values
trend toward historically WesternWhite male racist privileged mono-structures
is because we do not, instead,
cooperatively co-invest time
and energy
and capital
in diversely interdependent integrity;
reconnecting universal yang wealth values
with unitarian interdependent health-norms.

So, anti-racist multicultural ecosystems
are those fully invested
in pro-active historical culture-deepening
and diversely widening
integrity
rather than defensive monocultural rabidity.

Racial justice seeks creolizing metamorphosis,
and not colonizing unilateral supremacy,
as does environmental justice.

Both are health-trending
when cooperatively restoring therapeutic EarthJustice
with pulling together Win/Win integrity,
and not Win/Lose pushed apart disintegration
of bio-
and geo-systemic diversity.

Flighty Entertainments

Why does flight feel more lightly entertaining,
yet less engaging,
than fighting?

Laissez-faire thoughts lighter
than ponderous confronting ruminations,
Why?

I would not expect a babbling infant
to understand why
WinWin cooperation deeply entertains
for learning health-enhancing cultures,
ego/eco-therapeutic religious experience,
bicamerally democratic government,
multicultural compassion-nurturing
Golden Rule co-governance.

This omnipresent co-relational laundry list of engagements
I would explicitly
cooperatively
compassionately
spiritually
and naturally hope for
from mature entertaining adults
immersed in nonjudgmental egoNows
and nonperforming ecosystemic Heres
curiously ego-echo familiar
as WinWin stunning synergies
of primal ZeroZone co-presence
breathing in engaged acceptance
to breathe out health-optimizing
non-egocentric interdependently co-acclimating performance.

Why does LeftBrain
hope to escape
from yang-competitive Win/Lose risks,
feel safer,
more defensive,
more protective
of egocentric BusinessAsUsual performance,
while chauvinistically leaving RightBrain
in Lose/Lose hopeless despair
or Win/Lose lack of integrally fulfilling performance,
or unnoticed and shunned
alone with WinWin impressions
of healthy economic entertaining opportunities
alternatively missed,

And Left/Right ecological
and theological
and governmental
and religious
and multiculturally compassionate wealth
of thoroughly engaging non-violent health-opportunities?

But, really, LeftBrain competitive ego-performances
are not so much RightBrain embodied integral brainstem
deep learning
cooperative WinWin health-care synchronic,
resiliently satisfying
like harmonic singing
and synchronized dancing
and writing ego’s Win/Lose comedic/tragic
peak and valley experiences,
enculturing nutrition-stories
of healthy and unhealthy input breaths
causing wealthier entertaining output humors,

Muses,
Performance notes to self:
Now is time for ZeroZone
to breathe in regeneratively again.

To beat bicamerally
therapeutically
compassionate co-engagements again,

To become WinWin ecstatically co-entertaining,
once again
fully cooperative awareness
perceptively enraptured,
witnessing Earth’s natural/spiritual entertainments.

NonRocket Science

When I was an undergraduate
in Michigan
I became fascinated with my bilaterally transubstantiating internal conversation
about sufficient v necessary evidence
for thought v feeling experience

That communication’s principles of co-empathic persuasion
were also healthy-positive psychology’s research
on how to best regenerate Left/Right cooperatively resilient attitude change,
both feelings and thoughts,
to grow gratitude attitudes about spaciated places
bodily experienced as sometimes confluent peace
but sometimes dissonant
feelings of cognitive-affectively toxic
Win/Lose stress pathologies
and yet still polyphonically accessible
to deeply entrenched confluent WinWin memory pathways
back toward warm wet wombed
4-spacetime dimensional
ZeroZone breathing-nurturing-nutritional Matriarchal-Paradise,

Primal ego/eco-systemic health-care relationships,
political-psychological communication of winning-cause
with winning-effective power,
led me toward wanting more
ever-more
addictively more healthy community cooperative green organic development
for ever-deeper polycultural experience,
for more internal dialectal planning
through multicultural health-discernment
of how we can cooperatively and actively hope
to achieve optimal WinWin economic-ecological resilient outcomes
through ego/eco-systemic bilateral mindfulness.

Which,
in Bucky Fuller’s Synergy Earth-WholeSystem Universe,
not to be confused with the more LeftBrain dominant Scientology,
might also be described as
geometric ZeroCore cooperative EarthSoul unitarian inside networking
in dialectal-experiential-primal nutritional ego-dialogue
with our Whole nonspecial-case Universe outside interdependent environment,
composed of integral energy democracy systemic god
against chaotic-entropic-dissonant-fragmented
overly-competitive degenerative
lack of resiliently healthy hope.

Which
leads me to wonder:
How do we best restore economic-ecological climate justice peacefully
from lofty LeftBrain academic-empirical-deductive-dominant theory
about InterReligious Dialogue
and InterNational PublicHealthy Climate WinWin Diplomacy
to everyday grade school through eco-schooled
outdoor and indoor classrooms
built by transectarian non-violent communicating
compassionate co-ego/eco-therapists

CoRedeeming transubstantiating
creolizing
communion experiences
of co-empowering celebration

WinWin healing
cooperatively-owned and empowered
multicultural regenerative trends
in deep bilateral learning together

Win-health to Win-wealth
ZeroZone nature/spirit GoldenRules
nurturing Yang/Yin
Universal/Unitarian
health/wealth gaming systems
of integral Group Whole-Open-NonSpecialCase-DisEmbodied-Metric Theories
for evolutionary/revolutionary nutritional paradigms
emerging from resilient nondual assumptions,
puzzles,
and questions
ironically iconic of 4D
bilateral-bionic-biotic DNA string health-systems
fractal-holonic
composed of bilateral nature/spirit
image/memory robust energy-dialogical
Zero ZenZones
cooperatively committed
to healthy co-acclimating green-wealth praxis
of trans-cultural
non-sectarian solidarity.

My question remains,
What is Earth’s best WinWin compassionate health-praxis?

Why does this addictively seem,
for me,
to be

Our inherently intuitive
panentheistic
transubstantiating thought,
our secular belief
and sacred feeling,
of Whole Universal System
multicultural transectarian nature/spirit dialogue,
dialectal soil/soul creolization,
multiculturally polypathic compulsion
toward climate restoring justice,
favoring robust biotic vulcanization,
investing in restorative WinWin regeneration
of ego-psychological
and eco-political discernment
for ecological health
and not theological pathology,
discerning polypathic diplomatic health/wealth co-discovery.

CoOperative Mindfulness

Every newly innocent day
after complexly creolizing night dreams
I hear and smell and taste and see and feel
some thing
some co-related becoming
that more and less
kills me
with delight and terror,
that leaves and comes over me,
another weedy needle
in Earth’s haystack
celebrating integrity’s light.

This is what I am born and unborn for–
to taste and see
to ecologically speak and theologically listen,
to lose my fragmented ego
inside this just-right healthy spirited world–
to instruct our virally competing RightWing dominance
over and over
in co-acclimating joy
and Left-wealth of Right-health acclamation.

Nor am I thinking and feeling
about the ecstatic exceptional,
the terrifying LoseLose fearful,
the madly dreadful,
the lavishly extravagant
loves and hates–
but of the everyday.

The green commons,
the ordinary grey-scaled drab,
the daily ego-withering practiced presentations
competition principles
WinLose evolutionary policies
LoseLose devolutionary powers.

Good bilateral intelligence
of deductive thought
with inductive feelings,
EcoSoul reminds EgoSelf,
How can we help each Other
by healthing our Selves?

Egos grow wise
with such WinWin teachings
as both these and not not those–

The untrimmable in-between Left with Right bright
of Earth’s co-acclimating enlightenment,
Ocean’s fertile shine,
Prayers nutritionally offered
out of strong-rooting common grass…
