Scientific Artists

Scientists,
like health focused democrats,
have universally applicable intentions
when designing research questions.

Artists,
unlike capital-endowed elitists,
enthuse over unitarian themes
of balance and beauty
when designing interactive responses.

Egos,
like healthy ecosystems,
polyculturally thrive
where integrity evokes
joyfully compassionate
souls

Scientifically left exploring purposes
for and of
artistic right meaningful
sacred feelings.

Demagogues and Pedagogues

Proclaimed the trunk to His roots:

A demagogue teaches
and preaches
as my head trunk talks down
to my frontline branches

Lesser beings who had best listen
and learn
my stern
and often punishing expectations

Explained the roots
to Her much-loved trunk:

A pedagogue first listens
at the refining foot
of a sacred grassroot system

To serve compassionate communication,
inclusive problem-solving,
celebreating win/win peak experiences
of resonantly embodied promise,
harmony,
musicality,
integrity,
synergy,
transparency,
vulnerability
to multiculturally omniscient expansion.

Demagogues
require retribution
to survive against win/lose
zero-sum competitions
threatening capital-headed
bloating at the crown

While pedagogues invite restoration
of fully embodied thrival
and win/win uncompromised revival,

Faith in nonzero sum
polyculturally active,
deeply saturating communication,
rooted in past peak communion
courageously curious experiences.

Freedom for Global Compassion

Seminar Reflections

Liberal Lovers
invited a 2020 Trump follower
to lead them
to his personal straight white patriarchal trust
in strength
and privileged anthrocentric freedoms
to extract Earth’s wealth as needed
wanted
comforting
and entertaining
and convenient probably at least,
or even at most,
for this generation
of supremely intelligent
LeftBrain dominant
EarthOwners.

When asked where I find myself
debating against his eco-political logic
I had no strategic plan
or well-integrated clue

Why strongly resilient FreedomFrom
crippling environmental
and social capital restrictions
is not a resonantly sustainable balance,

An error in EarthJustice
resulting from discontinuous independence
of ego-individual liberty
to discredit
and divest from
evolving multicultural interdependence
of all multigenerational revolving life systems.

Just as exile from interdependence
may produce restrictions apart from multicultural
compassionate communication

As intellectual property apartheid
does not feel like freedom toward health
sustainably engaged in mature
well-capitalized CommonWealth responsibility,
nor freely invested in egalitarian dignity,
nor automatically re-investing
in democratic trusting healthcare futures.

Freedom to invest in healthy happiness
and freedom from monocultural diversions into sadness
cannot preclude each Other’s continued potentiality
to be known
and felt
as competitive
predative foreign devils
and/or
cooperative
multiculturing co-invested
liberally loving interdependent EarthTribe lives

Happy/sad depolarizing
regenerative/degenerative bilateral revolutions
of lively/deadly
freedom to multiculturally
Yintegrally invest
while enjoying freedom from monoculturing
Anthro-OverPowering
divestments
away from ZeroZone
health/wealth co-responsive
Earth

Suggesting,
now that I have had a moment to reflect,
that Yang’s anthro-freedom strength to
repress Yin’s multicultural free-flowing wisdom
works out better for Yang/Yin resilient health balance
than LeftBrain ego-patriarchal dominant monoculturalism
v RightBrain ecofeminist prominent
deep learning
listening
communing within multiculturalism

ReMembering neuro-sensory creolization
reconnections
compassionate re-ligions
restorations
transubstantiations
liberating communions, given and received
freely harmonic
resiliently redundant communications
of and for EarthJustice.

Generating Healthy Labels

Good and active healthy thoughts
produce and reflect
left-brain regenerative labels,

Bad and entropic death of feelings
effect left brain degenerating labels,

In-between
ambiguously left brain
and ambidextrously right brain
not not generate,
still actively ruminating.

Positive enlightened life,
Negative disempowered death,
Not not in-between these Yangs and Yins
all binomial egocenters
and ecosystems
positively regenerate restorative thoughts
and negatively degenerating retributive feelings

Creolizing
Transubstantiating
sacred in-between Paradise
and Hell,
Heaven
and Earth,
compassionate communication
and demonic debating demagogue experience,
healthy ecological thoughts
and punishing felt theological enculturation
sensation
energy

Healthy democratic communion
and pathologically autocratic disunion,

Restoring Deeply Conservative Progress

Our old nemesis,
capitalism,
is much older than democratic theory,
and even older than profoundly resilient democratic practice,
which is rather like Christianity–
often communion preached
and seldom democratically and multiculturally proficient,
fruitful,
viral,
contagious,
multiplying economic loaves
and politically empowering fish.

Capital-rooted values
derive from tribal chiefs,
professional healers and clergy,
and, more recently,
in the era of empires and nation-states,
royalty miraculously arriving by divine right
and sacramental enlightenment
of Elite EcoPolitical Persons,
recognized by exclusive rights of supremely royal birth–
entirely dissociated from loyalty of natural systemic rebirth.

When democratic political theory of inclusive,
non-elite,
eventually ecofeminist empowerment developed
into our straight white patriarchal U.S. Constitution,
we did not have enough multicultural experience,
and ecologically regenerative understanding,
to recognize that democracy is rooted in feelings of trust
and economic cooperative experience,
co-investment in what Game Theorists define as

NonZeroSum Win/Win ecopolitical outcome resilience

Resonant experience of cooperative ownership,
stewardship of compassionate properties
that can only be immorally misunderstood
as autonomously purchased with capital
and therefore ethically owned
controlled
exploited
deflowered.

Organic self/other
ego/eco
left/right bicameral management
remains conservatively rooted
in feelings of historic and cultural solidarity
on progressive journey toward resonant secular meaning
and resiliently sacred purpose.

Instead of noting that health
and well-being
and prosperity are endemic to cooperative win/win health systems
more than the chronic stress
typical of competitive win/lose strategies,
U.S. democracy is conservatively assumed to protect and defend capitalism,

Exclusively private wealth-accumulation,
and later incorporated anthropocentric self-investment
dissociated from OtherEarth Matriarchy,
becomes de-royalized personal patriarchal ownership.

Divine powers
and personhood
become disassociated from royalty
by right of birth,
and democratically re-associated with everyday inheritance
of anthropocentric royalty
accompanied by requisite meritocracy
of past familial,
and private corporate,
capital-wealth accumulation.

God the Father’s blessing
is evinced by bounteous ownership of currency;
not to be confused with natural energy democracy,
powers of naturally recycling currents of motion,
emotion
immolation
demotion
re-motion
premonition

At this point,
democratic health
and ecological/theological resilience
have been dissociated from moral virtue,
divorced from cooperative win/win wealthy systems
and divested from multicultural womanist networks
of co-empathic empowerment.

Our task,
rooted in this historic-cultural ecology of theological history,
Left/Right bicameral analysis,
may be seen as how to win more resources for and with non-elites,
left marginalized by win/lose rightwing capitalism,
no longer aligned with a green democratic trust
non-violent agenda for peace restoring EarthJustice;

As Jesus of Nazareth probably said,
we will always have the poor with us,
within us,
even if only poor in anti-natural,
unlovely and felt unloved, spirit.

We might also see this Great Transition
as a multicultural challenge
to deeply conserve healthy democratic progress,

Great opportunity to Reweave capitalism
into cooperatively-invested health care,
matriarchal giving while patriarchal receiving empowering
win-Self/win-Other models
for non-violent relationships
with Earth’s global climate,
with Interpersonal EgoSystemic CoOperating CoInvestment climates,
and MultiCultural EcoSystemic climates

Cooperatively polypathic/polyphonic,
left/right
universal/unitarian
yang/yintegrity
atomic/wave-linear co-relational
envisioned/deeply sensed empowerment,
renewing enlightenment era democratic resilient health
as also resonant economic wealth,

Promising compassionate
polycultural-nutritional-deeply prosperous
natural/spiritual outcomes.

Masters of Association

“My decision
is not any negative reflection
on you.
It’s not personal.”

This would be a Business School graduate,
meaning, if it is personal,
then it is not political or economic.

“It’s your decision,
for you to personally
and responsibly make.”

This would be a Social Work graduate,
or maybe some variety of therapist,
recognizing that what is personal choice
is also political, empowering or disempowering,
and possibly economic investment or divestment.

What is personal,
like what is political,
is about power
and vested interest,
even if short-term.

“Our decisions
about who runs for office,
who votes which way,
who nominates whom and why,
are matters of individual conscience.”

If this statement
is made by someone in political office,
who knows?
Maybe s/he gets it
that personal is also political,
that individual organic corporations
are also economic actors and investors,
or not.

So, what do you think?
What is your personal preference?
The Business Party view,
segregating personal faith
from political powers of relationship,
influence,

Or the Social Worker model
of power analysis,
individual through global,
competitive through cooperative,
personal through ecopolitical.

I suppose this is at least one reason,
my Republican colleagues,
when I was in a Master of Public Administration (MPA) program,
found the cultural distance
from a Master of Business Administration (MBA) program
subtle
opaque
unclear
ambiguous;
while the Democrats
and Green Party students
found differences between MPA
and MBA cultures
profound,
cooperative v competitive,
looking for Win/Win resonance
as opposed to searching for Win/Lose
ZeroSum endless growth of market share.

If all organic energy systems
are also ecopolitical communicators,
then we all have ecotherapeutic opportunities;

Some great,
some small,
but all one moment,
one message,
one relationship,
one rhetorical association
at a personal political time.

Democratic Poverty

I was listening to NPR yesterday
on my way to small green group ministries,
when I heard post-millennial Republicans
favor apartheid
while the contemporary urban-green Democrat
favors laziness.

I don’t know if this includes intellectual laziness,
lack of rigor,
and laziness about ecotherapeutic health,
but in either case,
this conflicts with my own experience,
regarding Democrats and lack of healthy motivation
but also of Republicans I actually know,
except perhaps my brother
and a Trump worshiping neighbor,
regarding apartheid as a fundamental religious constitutional right
to Christian evangelical colonizing supremacy
over all 3/5th former slaves
and other less fortunate criminals.

If Democrats are guilty of lazy love for restoring Earth’s
healthy subclimates,
both yin-side
and yang-outdoor voiced,
then what do we call Republican guilt
responsibility
lack of moral authority
to stop blowing each other
and trees
and Earth-habitat up,
both secular nature-systems
and sacred ZeroZone souls
of divine Matriarchal Grace.

When I arrived
to listen
and share non-verbal peaceful space
with my small green group alliance,
we sang and danced and spoke of connections
through active listening
rather than lazy lack of sufficient compassion
with suffering
and wealth of correlational enchantment
courageous coherence,
curious collusion,
collateral for healthy future prospects.

Then we each went home
in our own four directions
until we close our loops together
again next New Moon morning.

When God Deals Trump in Lemons

I think I recall
way back in balmier lemon-delivery days,
which already feel Golden Ruled
and Ratioed
and Elixired
by comparison,
when the Affordable Care Act
was referred to as the Democrat Agenda
for universal health care,
and Paris signatures
were discussed,
even polemically,
as the Democratic Global-Spreading Agenda
for climate health
as contrasted to the Republicans
for more aristocratic issues
of wealth containment
and top Wall Street Lobbyist 1% rapid expansion.

Then followed Trump the Top CEO Candidate,
then Trumpism,
more or less replacing Republicanism,
whose rhetoric became campaign prolific
personalized,
so Republican Agendas became
President Trump’s personal-corporate cancerous care
defined, but never contained, as whatever is oppositional
to ObamaCare.

Remarkable personal problem-solving charismatic skills
were promised;
remarkable for their consistent weakness
in practice.

New Republican self-definition
as whatever is not Democratic Health for All
has become camouflaged through personalization,
and therefore rhetorically de-politicized
and neutralized
regarding RealWorld economic outcomes
for the 90% and the 10%
becoming the 95% and the 5%
becoming the 99% and the 1%
Republican TrumpCare Advantage
v. that Bad Old BlackBiCameral ObamaCare
giving and receiving
climate health
rather than more TrumpTowering
business as Wharton UnReal Estates usual
Win to Lose ecopolitical assumptions
where WinWin
wears Original Constitutional colors,
broadening from Patriarchal White land-owner democratizing intent
toward matriarchal-patriarchal
white and whatever
land-owning and all other land and sea-residing
democratization of healthy wealth intent.

So,
if you are one of many Christian evangelicals
who thought TrumpTowering rhetoric
sounded more prim and proper
about keeping grabby hands to greedy self
than did the Hillary Democratic ProHealth version
of revisionism,
feeling some “we’re all sinner immigrant” remorse,
and if your Protestant or Catholic clergyman,
I might non-sicly guess,
encouraged you in this Post Republican
supremacist erection,
or elitist direction,
then please speak with them,
but kindly.

Encourage our fundamentalist clergy
to not act like Islamic fundamentalist clergy,
to instead ask themselves,
“What did Jesus do and say
about Publicans and Pharisees,
elitist greedy money-changers
grabbing ecopolitical valuables
on sacred soil?”
And love and health
for poverties of NatureSpirits
inheriting this health-wealth Earth,
instead of TrumpTowering AntiLife
for all who can’t grab fast and hard enough
to deforest our forests
inside and out,
to Win
over Loser Christian multi-counter-culturalists,
like Messiahs
thinking and acting
to grow cooperative healthy economies,
ProHealth for all us multiculturalists,
including immigrant waves
of Elder Patriarchs
spinning Creation Stories
as God might recreate His/Her ReGenerative Selves
like Golden Rules for LemonAid.

Original Freedoms of Intent

Do you see yourself as more Republican
or leaning more Democrat?

Oh my,
I’m a card-carrying Republican.
Came from a long patriarchal line
of red-blooded Republicans.

What makes you a Republican?
What is Republicanism, do you think?

Well…being against the Democrats, mostly.

OK.
I get that.
But, what are Republicans for
that Democrats are at least not in favor of
enough to give it sufficient priority
for you to feel economically and politically comfortable?

Republicans are Freedom Fighters.
Give us liberty or death.

Well, presumably we will all have both,
eventually,
but liberty for what,
freedom to what,
freedom from what?

Free markets
and freedom of religious expression
and free from terrorist and socialist threats,
to begin with;
freedoms protected by our Constitution
including its Amendments
and the Bill of Rights.

And presumably Democrats are, then,
for enslaved by regulation markets,
prescribed and proscribed absence of religious expression,
because they are all secret atheists anyway,
and more willing to accept terrorism and socialism
as part of Earth’s sick political and economic bounty,
and are, at best, ambivalent about freedoms
and values
asserted by Constitutional authorities,
including amendments,
defined by their Original Historical-Cultural Intent.

That sounds about right.

Would you agree that the Preamble
and the somewhat older Declaration of Independence
bear seminal weight
for establishing the Constitution’s intent
with regard to protection and promotion of freedoms?

Maybe.

Democratic freedoms
during our pre- through post-revolutionary period,
were originally defined by contrast
against a backdrop of economic and political plutocracy.
Our interdependent constitution as a free nation
composed of States with their own democratically intending constitutions
were statements that we would not be owned
nor tyrannically controlled,
taxed and terminated,
by royalty.

Freedom from plutocratic authorities lies within our U.S. Constitution’s definition
as a free union of democracies,
to live in interdependent cooperative freedoms
in which political authority’s boundaries
no longer exceed responsive economic co-invested co-responsibilities.
Which party would you argue
is more articulate about sustaining freedoms from plutocratic
centralizing
power trends and systems and ecopolitical outcomes
of jingoistic nationalism
that disguises triumphalism of the rich and powerful
becoming ever more rich and powerful?

Well, I’m not sure.
That would probably be the Greens
or the Libertarians.

And,
which party is more self-defined
as supporting regenerative interdependent responsibilities
to sustain future generations
of balanced democratic freedoms
from pathological plutocratic authorities
and yet growing freedoms to become responsibly,
nutritionally,
co-responsible nurturers and health-mentors
of and for Earth’s future cooperatively renewing
and self-regenerating
Commons?

That would be the Greens as polypathic PermaCulturists.

So, why aren’t you that,
instead of the card-carrying Republican?

Oh, that’s your easiest question yet:
Because nobody votes for the Greens,
and hardly anybody has even heard,
much less smelled or seen,
a cooperatively networking PermaCulturist.

Unless you count trees and plants and ecosystems.

But we don’t.
They can’t vote.

Or do they?

To Democratic Parties and WorkPlaces

I just read that U.S. Democrats stand in solidarity
against Trump,
but what else?
What is democracy for?

First,
democracy, rather than republican plutocracy,
here confuses united against our competitive opponents
with solidarity,
which must be for both ourselves and our appositional tensions.

Second,
democracy is empathic trust,
rather than mistrust,
much less active distrust;
so democracy stands in solidarity
with multiculturing regenerativity,
with wealth optimization as health maximization.

So,
please,
if our parties and cooperatively-owned workplaces
wear the label of “we are pro-democracy”
then rest assured that being for healthy multicultural evolution
and against degenerative monoculturing competitions
is a humanitarian platform
not limited to gathering votes from 50% of the humane-natural population,
but capable of drawing every vote
from every mind and body of age
to become pro-health for all Earth’s species,
including this more humane variety.
