Costs of Freedom

The value of individual freedom
seems impossible to quantify
without at least knowing,
What is this freedom for?

What is this freeing political and economic purpose?

Will my freedom
and your egalitarian
side by side
sometimes competitive
sometimes cooperatively multi-sided
liberty
liberate us to live in robust wealth
of interdependent multicultural health?

Is this individual freedom’s disvalue
to die in unhealthy,
boring,
lonely,
divisive pathology
of pretend autonomy
for individualistic lack of thriving polycultural wealth?

Challenged by economic and social distancing,
Stuck in quantitative and qualitative commodity losses,
both monetized and uncommunicated values
for healthy wealth of democratic multicultures
felt robustly freeing
resonant
resilient health systems
thriving through win/win interdependent communications
where we have leisurely and always sufficient time
to take a warm breath
together

Revaluing messages reminiscent
of earlier critical nationalistic times
when The only thing we had to fear
was straight white patriarchal nationalistic fear
itself.

Today,
the only thing we must not tolerate
is straight white patriarchal privileged intolerance
of leftbrain monocultural predation
itself.

The only thing we must not individualistically punish,
and thereby further empower,
is retributive vindictiveness
our monoculturing
colonizing
supremacist selves.

The only nationalistic freedom value we must not shun
is our own interdependent guilt itself

For the undemocratic
unhealthy society
we too often tolerate
at least within our freedom envious selves

Discovering commodified
monopolizing
monotonizing
industrialized
militarized win/lose communication value
is too expensive,
yet I too often empower
asset envy of Others,
especially those felt
as outside my own extended family

Thereby dissociated from my polarizing ego
freedom values for continuing
business as nationalistically
and autonomously usual
monopolizing partisan patriotic
unfreedom reacting against
loyal
liberating EarthJustice patriotism
rooted in multigenerational
co-empathic interdependent identity.

The value of individual freedom
seems impossible to quantify
without at least knowing
how is this freedom for
Earth-enlightened co-empowerment
of healthy communicating lives
multiculturing
multi-generational wealth
of sacredly reflected
secular
multisensory
neurologically systemic
win/win through win/lose experience
not lose/lose absence
of ego-liberating
ecosystemic memories?

Outside v Inside Strategy

When Donald Trump
ran against very Presidential Obama,
that he did not look
or sound like a win/win public sector leader,
or even commit to expanding healthy democracy,
worked well for him.

His favorite public relations strategy
is to win first place coverage on the evening news
by whatever entertaining means available.

This helped him win the electoral college
playing to a Christian RightWing
and straight white patriarchal-capitalist privileged
left-brain military-industrialized
win/lose monoculturally dominant
Base

As an inexperienced
entrepreneurially successful entertainer,
a wealthy self-made star,
a corporate-savvy business manager
ready for the big disempowering liberals screen

As viewed by those hungry for anyone
who would recite the RightWing mantra
that Right to Life
does not imply
Right to Public/Private Health,
regenerative
cooperative well-being
of all sacred organic LifeSystems,

Liberal and conservative
and all multiculturing varieties
of lovers and compassioners,
saints and sinners,
in between

Which is more of a right-brain
interdependent
both/and holistic
Holy Spirit way
of revisioning 20/20 bicameral life
revisiting mature
experienced
co-empowering
co-enlightening
bilateral Truths.

Anyway,
Trump’s strategy
backfires as re-issued
from the White House in 2020
now more than ever
dominating lead story national news
still looking alarmingly unpresidential.

Make America Great Again
by disempowering Liberals again
and by Grabbing Earth’s Balls and Tits Again
looks and feels tarnished
swampish,
yet another rich entitled
straight white patriarchal
scumbag politician
living in a powerful mansion
with nothing to say
about my mental/physical health,
nothing to support healthy family life,
no clue about affordable health care,
denying the biggest crisis of global history,
our international health emergency
also known as climate warming,
no ideas about empowering multiculturally healthy democracy
rooted in public trust-governed cooperative win/win systems,
no messages for those seeking natural or spiritual health,
bereft of any hope
for ecological or theological safety.

His biggest asset for the 2016 presidential election
is now his deepest
and widest liability
for 2020 re-election
as a RealTime BiCamerally EcoTherapeutic President,

Who sounds
and looks
and possibly smells
and touches
and feels democratically health-wealthy
Presidential;
not quite so greasy fast-food swampish,
grabby,
greedy,
narcissistic;
more of a fatuous clown
than a facetious entertainer.

Fame Not Required

My great challenge for fruitful wisdom paths
is credentialed expertise.

My obstacle to polypathic health
is self-aggrandizing comfort,
cheap ease.

Obstacles to resilient compassion
have more to do with impatient “kindness”
than diligently interdependent pursuits
of transparently vulnerable
integrity
of deep and wide resonance, seeking consilience
of cooperative wisdom.

When my wisdom circles
of dialogue
discussion
sacred discernment
turn to topics of public administration,
political science,
persuasion theory,
nonviolent communication systems,
positive psychology,
multicultural mediation,
cooperative economics,
game theory,
systems theory,
group theory,
attachment theory,
polyvagal theory,
experiential math,
permaculture design,
comparative religion,
Restorative Justice,

When these tools
within my belt of personal knowledge
are invited to work cooperatively together
to achieve resilient
and resonant
multicultural wisdom,

Problems begin when I expect
to speak unilaterally
and to be listened to,
settling for sufficiency of my credentialed expertise,
my zero-zone experience,
my health-wealth advocacy,
rather than searching for shared wisdom
educational
developmental
formative
sociological
neurological
ecological
theological
geological
biological…

Cooperative fame prefers
becoming known
for our active love of one another
exhaling out
to encompass all wisdom circles

More powerful
healthier
wealthier
and famous
rather than infamous
punishingly ideological
monoculturing squares.
