Greek Democrats

In the 1700s,
Western hemisphere,
was an ancient Greek legend
of wildly rabid forums,
with mixed philosophical reviews
as to its realistic merit
for effective governance.

Uniting Republican States,
especially those less industrially endowed,
those more slave labor force enriched,
more Southern ecopolitical patriarchs
required a Bible
more than democratic theory
to establish retributively justified white male supremacy,

Social segregation,
economic apartheid
between persons become property
and Caucasian male properties
become 100% empowered democratic persons
while yet fully blessed
with God’s evangelical grace,

Darkly shadowed
by egocentric
anthro-divinely supreme

Within this newly revolutionary chrysalis,
democratic philosophy
of patriarchal retributive justice
was reborn,
as best it could
without more contemporary
restorative healing justice
and multicultural peace experience,

Open dialogical reflection,
whole inclusive EarthSystem contemplation
of what could it mean
to sacredly and secularly anticipate
cooperative energy democracy
at an ecopolitically global
and local
humane property scale
of graced compassion.




Defending Democratic DogLives

Dear Thom the Train
Attorney Page,

Defender of all Creatures
here below
in these DisUniting States
of throwback uncivil disunion,

What is your root foundation
for a constitutional argument
that all living residents
of these remaining United Democratic States
have a right
to restoring healthy justice,
to resiliently retaining healthy life?

Is this sacred democratic Source
inter-related with values
like well-being
public health optimization,
declarations of defensive rights
for all Creation
to freely seek democratic empowerment
and liberating enlightenment?

and, thereby, pro-green new and ancient win/win deals.

I am not a lawyer,
as you can clearly already hear,
but more of a constitutional
polycultural historian,

So, how do you briefly argue
in courts of your licit choosing,
an evolutionary theory
of democracy still healthily emergent?

Starting with straight
patriarchal property owners
African and Native American
domesticated and feminized
economic and political
natural and spiritual slaves,

Moving multiculturally out
to include prisoners
and homeless shelter dwellers,
and now our imprisoned
and life-endangered dogs
and cats,
and cattle,
and guines pigs
of democratic tensions
of dominating fraternity
and liberating sorority.

History shows
where our constitutional democratic story began
with white straight male slave-owner privilege,

But, how do you predict where
and when this evolving
emergent cooperative health-wealthing
cooperative reality
or could
or would globally end?

it is your brief courtship win/win position
that we must expect no such end
to this multiculturally revolutionary
democratic 20/20 revolution?

Moving from more Straight White Patriarchal
independence days
toward more resiliently fulfilling
Earth InterDependence Days
and sensory moonlit nights

Of freely orbiting stars
and planets
from democratizing Positive/Negative
Yang/Yin Energy

Empowering health,
Enlightening true and beautiful
epic green
democratic wealth.


Polite Political Distance

I hope I would
find a difference
between cooperative masturbation
and making passionate love
if I could

I wonder if I should
recognize ego’s fulfillment
as more leftbrain secularized
and the other
as Old Green EcoSchool sacred
and red-blooded.

I hope a brief career
as a prostitute
was brief because I could not produce
a sultry fascinated look
for commercial leftbrain purposes.

I would not
because I could not
and perhaps it is not a flaw
in character
that the issue of should not
never co-arose.

I also wonder about my brief career
as a model.

I could not produce
the gift of an impassioned smile
for commercial purposes,
or at least not a smile
photographers found resonant,
nor sufficiently resilient
for longer term consumption.

Again, I would not
because I could not
force what my rightbrain felt
should co-arisingly
responsively flow from wealth
of safe and co-relational health,
secular and sacred.

I had a not brief enough career
as a commercial writer
for human development,
and young adult
and cooperative community development
for more warm than polite
politically empowering agency.

I could not fail to notice
how commercial professional fundraisers,
also known as beleaguered Executive Directors,
replaced original founders
whose hearts co-empathically arose
with compassion to serve,
and live in personal
and familial,
even tribal and global, solidarity
with all poor in spirit
disenfranchised from Earth’s sacred nature.

I retired
when I could not fail to notice
I was a white male privileged
commercial writer
for a straight white privileged
corporate culture
no longer even dreaming
of non-commercial solidarity
with those we were white privileged
to serve with increasingly secularized
of indentured servants
rather than rightbrain co-empathically committed
to robustly co-relational
cooperative attachments

Within EarthTribe’s unprostituted
organically whole
yet spiritually open
co-empowering relationships.

I wonder if I would
find a difference
between codependent political masturbation,
between Trumpian self-serving administration,
and founding democratic Fathers
making passionate non-commercial love
if I could
and should.


Revolutionary Para-Dime Differences

A difference between compassion and sympathy,

between co-empathic passion
and unilateral YangPatriarchal-empathic,
ego-empowering intent,

Compassion matures passion FOR
to shared passion WITH.

This same emergent fluidity
cannot be said of sympathy
for suffering of Other,
who remains another dissociated Other

Exempted from democratic inclusion
in further considerations
of constitutionally appropriate applications
of Golden Rules
to those who remain
in darker xenophobic shadows
more appropriate for retributive reaction
than restoration to peaceful justice response.

This same contrast and compare
may also apply to political empowerment
and more of the same
competitive economic investment,

to global enlightenment
and more localized, and often nationalized, pockets
of self-enrichment,

to recreative cooperative love
and to recreational competitive lust

Now that some of us
revolutionaries and evangelists
of the ecological 1960s
have been given this great green gift
of old age wisdom,
what on Earth
shall we choose to do with
such awesomely sacred/secular
private/public sectoral nonpartisan
WisdomCircle responsibility?

Settle for fading sympathy,
loss of sensory health awareness,
physical consciousness?

Or, Reconsider ways to optimize compassion,
compassionate communication,

Quoting Einstein

I wonder if Einstein’s moral aphorisms,
observations about healthy inclusive values,
concern about dominant cultural confusion
between positive humane energy
and anthro-supremacist mass,

If these spacetime thought experiments
could be quoted more or less RealTime often
than metric equivalence formulas
of 3D spatial matters
spiral in revolutionary bilaterals

and after prerecessive…

I wonder if
Einstein’s multicultural moral values
are revered
more or less
because of his eco-metric
and natural scientific
leftbrain dominant systemic articulation

Resonating warm compassion
for Green Organic Earth

inside Thought Experiments

Hypothetical predictions

may follow leftbrain paranoid
about powerful plotters,
venomous disempowerers
who are, thereby,
unlike my mortal
repressed story,
depressing ego-identity,
being and yet also becoming
more lost

Or, my ego could follow wisdom circles
of rightbrain affective multicultural communication
through resonant win/win discernment cycles
and more disturbing periods
racist climates
sensory monosexual supremacists,
more and less evangelistically anthro-supremacist
against universal cooperative network building

What would you feel,
happy or sad,
or hopefully something more widely amusing
and deeply profound
than One

falling democratically,
inclusively, both up and down,

between humane sacred Mind
and cooperatively reassociated EarthNature,

In between
sacred ego individualistic personal theology
and secular green global communication ecology.

Mother Earth Goddess,
what could you hope to feel
if I were to say of you,

“This bicameral Creator
could not non-violently feel
and experience sacred gratitude
for my irresponsible ecofeminist spirit.”

Must you hear that observation
and post mortem hypothesis,
my Fifth Quarter PermaCultural analysis,
as a pre-mortem judgment,
disdain for what might become
good faith news

We are each and all
doing our cooperative best
with one Restorative EarthJustice
Bodhisattva-Messianic Vocation,
to heal our own organic
sacred Gaian Habitat
or suffer revenge
of EcoFeminists laughing loudest
and eternally last.

If it helps,
and we mutually hope
Truth and Beauty co-habitate wisdom
to help all ReGenerators,
sacred as Great-Horned Owlish Prophets
and Prophetesses
watching our future rich eggs grow.

If Trust helps,
perhaps you may appreciate
a judgment I neither said
nor intended,
neither explicated nor implied,
did not intend as a colonizing weapon
nor a creolizing tool,

a healthy bicameral anthropoid
SHOULD non-violently feel
and experience sacred green gratitude
for my irrepressible ecofeminist attitude.”

Judging past behaviors
and absence of behaviors,
and communications,
verbal and nonverbal,
is not helpful to you or me
as compared to ego/eco-healing future behavior
and communication
toward inviting cooperative dialogue
more than competitive debate
in bicameral eco-political capitals,
heads of stated being

Rebecoming temples
sacred inside voices
speaking outside Beauty’s Truths.


The Americans

“I do not see what right any one would have
to object to calling this part
[the South American mainland],
after Americus
who discovered it
and who is a man of intelligence,
that is, the Land of Americus,
or America:
since both Europa and Asia
got their names from women.”
Matthias Ringmann, cartographer, 1507

With the bringing down of statues
and the renaming of sacred temples,
I am reminded of Biblical tearing down
of shrines to Baal,
the turning of politically and religiously correct
cultural backs and shoulders,
hands and feet,
heads and capital investments
away from our own idolatrous sins
of anthro-centric history.

Fair enough,
but, to gaze upon which new god
and goddess?
Green and Black sacred lives,
and red blood of The Lamb
and yellow SonLight
and blue Marian EcoFeminist
and ultra-nonviolet EarthMother Moon.

So many colors to choose
or not to choose
yet avoid new temples to Baal;

A crisis of risk and opportunity
dissonance and resonance
divestment and investment
degenerative and regenerative intent.

A critical discernment
between infamous and famous,
natural pathology and spiritual health.

What surprises me
in this current revolutionary purging
of racism
and violent colonialism
and rapacious patriarchalism
and perniciously predative mono-sexism
and almost hopeless anthropocentrism
is the resilience of Amerigo
[also Americus] Vespucci,
extractively merchanting
and mapping
and scientific explorer source
for “America”.

We had, in the 1500s,
The Americas,
South, then North
invested cartographers
led by Mr. Americus.

Indigenous populations,
now become Native Americans
in North America,
also used maps,
if not externally sketched in two dimensions,
then internally felt in spacetime four
spiraling through green seasons
of nutritional communication
bearing future fruit
and healthy seeds
and wealthy wombs.

Then came the United States of America.
Not, more humbly,
United States of North America
in part
because mappers and Earthologists
were not yet in resonant agreement
about whether this wild new West,
although now clearly not East India
with NearEast Indians,
is one united continent
or now eroded into two.

anthropoids had a choice,
to honor academic investor Americus
as next to godliness,

Recognizing that fame does not become us,
further invest this new global map
in rediscovered new age Western Earth,
lying in sacred direction of divine sunset
for those cartographers
and astrologers
residing in full moon rising Europa

Before these United States of America
and without the bondage of critical events
in EuroCentric historic story,
neither infamous nor famous
indigenous risk takers
and opportunity seekers
built temples
to deities Amerigo
found idolatrous

Which he might also have considered
as further resourced roots
of gods and goddesses
appropriate to Black and Brown and Green Lives Mattering
to RedBlooded EarthTribes
of saints and sinners
resonant and dissonant

Regenerative and degenerative
cooperatively co-invested and competitively divested

Win/win communal and win/lose capitalistic,
interdependently incorporated
and violently individualistic,

Liberal in democratic love
and stingy with constipated constitutional conservatism,
ecofeminist and egopatriarchal,
Green ReBidenuclear
and Red UberTrumpian.

Statues of,
and temples dedicated to, Americus
are difficult to find,
even more difficult to tear down.

for those who can recreate such sacred history,
systematic theology,
ecology of healthy and pathological relationships,
neurological psychology,
polypathic muse-cology
of polyphonic risk
and opportunity,
the first moment of cultural exhale
invites individual climate purgation,

This much is obvious
to our natural senses,

our second moment of inhale,
this is my returning revolutionary question,

Will we replace academic extractive Amerigo
with Uniting Global States
of GreenBlue Earth?

Or something more idolatrous
like patriarchal
and revengefully capitalistic
UberTrumpian Baal?
NeoColonizing Hate and Fear?
MonoCulturing Anger?
Lone AnthroWarriors of Narcissus?
Naked White Emperors of Americus?


On Democratic Compassion

A Unified Account of Causation, Constitution, Persistence, and Emergence

Rögnvaldur Ingthorsson
132 Views4 Pages

Metaphysics of properties,
I explore the prospects of a causal explanation of constitution, persistence, and emergence. I will suggest that the idea that causation involves the mutual manifestation of disposition partners allows us to think of compound entities as mutual manifestations of dynamic interactions between the parts that constitute them, and their persistence as a result of that dynamic interaction. However, I think we need to modify the conception of mutual manifestations. The mutuality has been described in terms of the equal importance of so-called disposition partners—pairs of active and passive powers—while the interaction between the objects that wield such powers is characterised as unidirectional; one object acts while the other receives the influence of the action. This view is challenged by the fact that the natural sciences do not recognise any form of unidirectional action. Instead they depict all interactions as perfectly reciprocal, in the sense that whenever one object exerts an influence, the other simultaneously exerts a proportional influence of the same kind on the first, but in the opposite direction. I suggest that to accept the reciprocity of interactions only strengthens the viability of a causal account of constitution, persistence, and emergence.


I wonder if this same causal effective explanation might apply to bicameral co-passion and bilateral health investments, and co-gravitation, for that energy matter, temporal binomial inside/outside space, ego eco-ing experiential neurometric prime relationship of left and right hemisphere co-passionate communion; where Yang=1x and Yin=0y-squared to the four dimensional nutritional recycle of octave double-binary fractal strings of regenerative DNA bicameral bilateral ergodic potential structure of compassionate golden rule consciousness.


Lone Warrior Rides Again

I wonder how much,
if any, distance
we might uncover
between The Lone Warrior
surrounded by weary white YesMen,
and The Naked Emperor
surrounded by timid white YesMen.

Both Warriors and Emperors
long for those they serve
by ruling over,
by disempowering healthy democratic voices
of critical dissent,
to wake up to their personal
privileged vision
and sacred words,
their supremely authoritative
and defensively authoritarian
win/lose knowledge

That competition to serve as YesMen
is the only appropriate role
for weak serfs;
those with too humble
poverty of spirit
and degenerative win/win nature,=

Rather than daring
to look into our own Lone Emperor
richly naked eyes
of narcissistic disappointment.

Like all of us,
all Naked Warriors ever healthy long for
is to be appreciated
and played with
by peers
of resonant
compassionate integrity
health wealthing.

The nakedly lonely
Warrior Emperor
of win/lose capitalistic politics
is not what EarthTribe had in mind
as reborn worshipers
cast our famous ballots
for EarthMother’s sacred
non-yeswoman birth

back to enlightenment
of GrandMother Moon.
