In Love and War

You’ve heard it said?
All’s fair in love and war!

Well,
most ethicists,
even war-mongering philosophers,
disagree with the “All’s fair in war” part,

As do just everyday Earth-patriotic folks
who loyally prefer not to be bombed
and automatically rifled
just because some crackpot(s)
in the nearest capital city plutocracy
decide to make war,
using our kids and tax dollars,
instead of love,
co-passion,
solidarity with Earth’s pro-life health.

All ethicists,
and folks who find compassion
to responsibly risk vulnerability
of a loving relationship,
disagree with the “All’s fair in love” side
of this unmindful equation.

Fairness, equity, of powers to freely say
Yes
or No
to another’s invitation into passion
is a prerequisite to sustainable love,
grace,
mutual integrity of thought and feeling,
regardless of how short- or long-term projected.

It would be more valid
and validating
to observe,
All is at risk in both love and war,
but, unlike violent acts of hate
and fear
and anger
and greed,
risks of love are often fairly balanced
with opportunities for growing healthy cooperative resilience
together,
and certainly not warring unfairly apart.

are co-relational ecological wisdom

Transposed into Ego/EcoSystemic Therapeutic CoArising Theory language

In this WinWin cooperatively regular Game Theory

our Game goal strongly and flowingly favors resilient health

Going PositivEnergy with God

I realize it’s been over a year now
But, sorry dear,
I just can’t seem to move past our loss,
nearly half our extended national family
in one cataclysmic day.

You mean the Donald
and those who might consider voting for him again
today
and tomorrow
if they could?

Yes.
Especially the ones
who believe they are Christians in good faith
and Catholics in good moral standing.

You sound pro-life judgmental.

And I feel victimized
but these ZeroZone victim feelings
of violation
and fear to listen to national and Earth news,
my sense of imploding climate doom,
these include us all,
even the most bigoted
and demented
and desecrating RightWing OnePercent,

Because all our children
and theirs
and theirs
are democratically equal
in these exponential risks
against Earth’s 7-Generation designing
and planning
and cooperative living,
in supporting PositivEnergy Democratic Trust
restorative healing
self-with-other perpetuating
WinWin resiliently brillant
healthy future regenerations.

And
would your sacred ecotherapy
co-arise RightWing
ego restorations,
health trends toward something resembling
secular with sacred healthy sanity?

Well right now
I would settle
for becoming capable of explaining
to our wealthy optimistic kids
why nearly half those who voted
in the U.S.
in November of 2016,
in the very last election before our 2020 PolyCultural Rapture,
Why would good faith gospelers
vote for competitive
and punishing monocultural Trumpism,
playing the miserable role
of Anti-Restorative Healing Christ,
when he specifically threatened
He is pro-nationalistic supremacy
more than pro-All EarthLives Matter.

He is against protecting clean air,
against restoring healthy organic soil,
against protecting purity of living water,
and against a federal commitment
to universal health-care giving and receiving
affordable to all U.S. PositivEnergy co-investors
in good-faith social security
and ecopolitical health-conservation optimization;

His Red White and mostly Blue DeathLips
spit against No Gun EarthZones,
against WinWin non-violent
PositivEnergy Democracy,
cooperatively invested Trust,
Good Faith,
Healthy-Wealthy Enculturation.

Wow!
Your fascination with this CEO selection issue
for this time
and in this divided Red-RightWing
Blue-LeftWing place
has taken on epic Green Revolutionary West-Greets-East proportions
of good YangRight resilient ego/eco-centered voters
conjoining YinLeft resonant RightBrained poets
and prophets,
artists
and permacultural healers
who prefer not to fade among
self-appointed
Naked Apprentice Kings.

With embarrassingly vain combovers.
Don’t forget his transparent mendacity
when what Christians,
and all good faith adults,
pray for
is moral integrity,
within as without.

Therapeutic Investments

Economic messages,
models,
exchanges,
transactions,
investments and divestments,
restorations and extractions,
therapies and punishments,
health and pathology
come from diverse secularized capital media,
like egos,
and nutritional flows,
health norms
and energy centers,
power points.

Similarly,
ecological messages,
transfers of nutritional resources
and toxic demons,
are read in diverse media climates
of water restorative balance
and extractive flowing floods and pollution,
of soil health and pathology,
of wind power and superpowers of hurricanes,
of fire restoring warmth
but also extractively devouring,
therapeutic restorations
and punishing retributions through over-extractive imbalance.

Capital is to economics
as Energy is to ecology;
each resiliently mediated by WinWin positive intent
to cooperatively invest
and predative WinLose negative intent
to compete against other capital-centered climates
of holonic unrest.

Capitalism extracts nutrition
where ReStorative CoOperatism co-invests cultures of loving health
in budgets,
creolizing plans and designs
and mutual intent toward polyculturally positive outcomes for All
students and mentors
followers and inclusively democratic leaders
DNA and co-arising RNA
children and parents
patients and healers

Kellyanne’s Fake Constitutional Rocks

“The Second Amendment is a bedrock principle of our Constitution…”
Kellyanne Conway

Dear Kellyanne,

Thanks so much for standing in
for the apparently unavailable
and dull, predictable Constitutional lawyers,
and the U.S. historians,
and also the legal philosophers
of social justice and moral ethics
with your own fresh minority opinion
of one NRA wanna-be lobbyist.

Before I saw your latest entry
in the OutRageous JunkNews competition,
which has become more hotly contested
as of post-Trumpian patriotic late,
I had actually,
you know,
read, once or twice, what the Constitution itself
has to say
about what are its own bedrock principles.

Here are our bottom-line goals
as stated in the Preamble itself:

1. “to form a more perfect Union”
which would probably leave out most forms of investment in domestically competing violence,
fear-mongering,
and even anti-feminist anger-mongering.

2. “justice”
which does not seem to be later defined as
private and public sector arms racing
to see who can first acquire the most
or biggest
or fattest
or fastest
or longest ballistic toys.

3. “Tranquility”
with a capital T
not a capitol Trump Business As Competitively Usual
as you might spell that word,
a synonym, here, for Peace,
with a capital and capitol P,
for Please could you get over your unprincipled verbal garbage
for just one contemplative retreat,
it would do you,
and possibly those around you,
so much ecotherapeutic good.

4. “common defence”
Not spelled UnCommon Offense
amongst our otherwise Unioning selves,
so specifically,
explicitly,
clearly,
transparently excluding domestic rights to bear or bare ballistic arms,
not even talking about knives,
or sling shots,
or those really big rubber bands
that my brother used to snap me with
on the back of my own redneck patriarchal ass.

Which is why we had to have a Second Amendment
because the bedrock principles of the Constitution
explicitly exclude
what we had to include
in the Second Amendment,
because, unlike the First Amendment,
which actually is, arguably, redundant with remaining bedrock principles,
the Second Amendment most extravagantly and democratically and transparently clearly is NOT:
“promote general Welfare”
“Liberty” to the signers and us, and our “Posterity” kids too
which are the real original health care giving and receiving framework
or bedrock
for the standard democratic justice terminology of that time,
as well as our own post-millennial time
and mental space
and nation growing regenerative place,
and not so much over-investment in degenerative ballistics.

So,
if by “bedrock principle”
you mean seminal values
of the Signers’ Historically Manifest Intent,
on one side of recorded history
you have the Preamble
then the Body of the Constitution
then the First Amendment.

Then you have the
“Oops, British rights of citizens to self-defensive armaments
within domestic borders,
which,
by the way,
did not necessarily include the right to bear arms across state lines,
or even county lines,
or even outside one’s own village,
or even outside one’s own property,
but, regardless,
is hopelessly outweighed in the competition for
“Most Bedrocked Constitutional Principle
for Preserving this More Perfect Domestic Union”
by most anything on the Preambling list above.

Which,
actually, I think is good news for you.
Because if the right to shoot at each other
were a bedrock principle
rather than the responsibility to play nice,
and talk non-violently correctly as compassionately,
and cooperate with as much good-humor as bicamerally possible,
then your own enfranchised health,
happiness,
and matriotic prosperity
would be in some serious LeftBrain-RightWing fascist shit,
counter-historically speaking.

By the way,
did you happen to notice
the Constitution’s summary remarks?
just before the last Article on Ratification,
“…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

What is not defined is the difference,
if any,
between a religion
and idol or icon worship.

When I read bedrock justice and peace principles,
and think about them,
and grow passion about them
as explicitly documented Constitutional original historical intent,
and then I read your statement
that the Second Amendment
isn’t really an amendment at all,
it’s more of a gun-toting religious faith
in Up Yours! Better Government Through Ballistics!
it makes me have second thoughts about how far we can reasonably stretch the First Amendment,
to protect non-violent and co-responsible and informed speech
to also cover
religious allegiance to violence
and irresponsible blabber.

TransGendering Trumpisms

Trump started it,
with his arguments against transgender people
in the military violence business
of nationalism.

He seems to think trans-thinking
could not be sufficiently focused,
disciplined,
willing to accept ego-sacrifices
as necessary for successful long-term peaceful outcomes.

While this does seem to be an issue,
this lack of focus and self-discipline,
for some in the long-term healthy peace achievement business,
anyone who is transgender
and yet willing to gamble on thriving in a military culture
is not likely to suffer in those ways,
unlike lack of congressional climate of health care outcomes,
and far removed from a Trumpian,
late-decadent Victorian,
All Supremacist WhiteHouse.

It is ever so much easier
to retain a stiff upper lip,
and shut your over-twitterish hatefilled mouth,
when thou art Queen Bee of the Hill,
than when one of the many transgender soldier bees,
defending your right to lay really tragic
not-funny eggs
in full view of a not skeptical enough
Republic.

Perhaps we would all be better off
if we only nominated for President
people who had successful experience not only as Governors
or Senators
or even Vice Presidents,
but also some successful transgender experience.

For to become Trans
is a lifespan progress.
Not only unity of focus
and discipline of bilateral selves,
but also an intuitive feel for balance
between the virulent egocentric
and the viable possibilities for cooperative eco-centric diversity,
and a sense of appropriate
and inappropriate
use of color.

Color,
not only variations on yellow
with red
with blue,
not only black and brown
with diverse hues and textures of white and pink flesh,
but also colorful language
pattern and rhythmic texture,
tone,
ranging scales of operatic drama
but also peaceful romantic moonlit nights
here in this focused,
balancing,
colorful spacetime place
transgender celebrates
as a peaceful,
yet fertile,
diversely promising womb of Earth.

Perhaps we could also improve leadership
for all Earth’s health care giving
and receiving,
by closing the Senate
to straight white males
of any age.
We employ far too many of those
in the incompetent House of NonRepresentatives
to achieve successful unity,
balance,
and color.

Bullies focus on their monoculturing intents
and violent purposes, as necessary,
as self-justified,
so are not known for skill sets
involving polyculturally balancing
ecopolitically healthy outcomes,
much less any Commons sense
of polyphonic color,
much less any politically liberating sense of humor.

For this full design package,
we could more successfully turn
to society’s transgender victims,
soldiering on with and without us
if we could just keep up
with their divinely inspiring
senses of and for balancing peaceful
yet radiant
colors of integrity,
both inside
and out.

Gathering Roots

“Gathering roots holds up a mirror between the map in the earth
and the map of our minds.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer “Braiding Sweetgrass”

Permaculture Design
is about landscape shaping programs and projects
with nutritional goals
and ethical/aesthetic WinWin cooperative processes.

In Apache,
the verbal label for land
also means mind.

To design landscapes for healthy polycultural progress
is also to mindscape for wealthy polypathic process.

PermaCulture Land/MindScaping,
like Positive Health Psychology,
is not restricted to external roots of nutrition,
although these are our internal root Elders.

Forest root systems are largely planted through cooperative self-governance.
But, when Designers plant roots
we usually feed and water those we are most invested in,
and sometimes those with greater internal needs than others,
harvesting their combined effects, affects,
resonance and dissonance,
and culling the most regenerative for replanting
to continue evolving next year’s deep diverse rooting system
of cooperative associations,
mature foresting networks.

So too, our sensory-neural mindbody root systems
we appositionally and oppositionally plant and grow
in reverse tree hierarchies of co-subsidizing responsibility,
co-responsiveness,
resonance feeding
and dissonance bleeding
our cooperative and competitive roots most exegetically invested
in each other
to continue harvesting resonant and dissonant climate effects, affects,
culling the most polypathic LeftYang deductive
and most resonantly polyphonic RightYin inductive,
dipolar co-arising
future internal landscape progress
through mindscaping process,
cooperatively recreating WinWin
enculturation of cooperative health norms, ethics, aesthetics
optimizing ecopolitical wealth
of lands and minds,
avoiding dissonantly pathological WinLose landmines.

It may help to see and explore
parallels between interior and exterior root systems
if we ease off on LeftBrain’s more form-labeled static view
of organic root nutritional networks
and invest a bit more in RightBrain’s ego/eco-functional view
of root health purposes.
How root systems act nurturingly
naturally
spiritually
in Yin-matriarchal symbiosis
with their Yang-patriarchal trunks and branches,
both within concave Right
and without convex Left
quite so awfully dominant.

Formed knowledge is to LeftBrain deducting roots
as function-flowing wisdom
is to RightBrain inducting roots,
and breaths,
and bilateral models of tree functions,
adapting/adopting
symbiotic acclimation networks
of health-rooting systems.
