zero-waste stream
permaculturally designed
and cooperatively owned
are no more or less Democratic-Boutique ecopolitics

Than AgriBusiness
extractive anti-ecological
rather than restorative-ecosystemic therapy,
competitively owned
and Business as Usual capitalist-colonizing designed
multinational conglomerates of anthro-hubris greed,
are no more or less Totalitarian Universal Supremacist ecopolitics.

I heard a young woman farmer
raising grass-fed cattle
on her small organic farm
designed to restore health to Southern
RedState topsoil,
as well as to her kids’ kids,
future farmers of Postmillennial America.

She believed the small scale
of her natural-spiritual restorative farming economy
placed her at a disadvantage
to receive government operational loans
as compared to multinational agribusiness conglomerates
using chemicals and pesticides
to kill topsoil
and extract short-term nutritional values
at long-term disinvested cost
to future healthy generations
and their dreams to health-wealth thrive.

A government farm subsidy expert responded:

If we don’t have enough capital to loan to everyone,
we are forced to give priority funding
to larger scale producers
with capacity to provide more than sufficient this-year nutrients
for our large domestic and foreign flooding markets.

She did not mention costs of growing obesity
and simultaneous malnutrition,
dual-poignant trends.

She did add,
The agricultural sector is complex,
composed of large agribusinesses
and small boutique operations,
and all are welcome by UncleDonald to apply,
after first saluting the TrumpTowers,

But she left unchallenged
the Farmer’s original matriotic complaint
of an uneven ecopolitical playing field
that actually favors large patriarchal corporate greed operations
invested in toxic
farming-as-raping sociopathic practices.

As I was listening to the farm subsidy expert
on competitive economics
make her case for giving separate but
only marginally unequal value
to these diverse nutritional scales,
small and more robustly large,
with distinct investment niches
available for public dollar support
of a presumably synergetic-democratic agricultural department,
without conceding undue favor to AgriBusiness multinationals.

Separatists, yes;
Supremacists for BusinessAsUsual, no.

I was starkly reminded
of an OldSchool KKK spokesman
who last year said
the WhiteBrother Klans are racial separatists
but not WhiteMale Supremacists.

It does feel like a pathological distinction
without a healthy,
non-WhiteWashed, difference
for present
or future lives
of and for thriving nutritional diversity,
deep sacred-secular ecological synergy.

When will pre-millennial threats
ever learn how to hear post-millennial therapies
as other than Boutiquely Synergetic?

I know…
I know!…
When we have to grow together
rather than continue failing apart.


Earth First

America First
is a RightWing monocultural intention
currently championed by Trumpians
and Republican Aristocracy of Evangelism
Tea Partiers,
by xenophobic paranoids
and sociopathic fascists,
by the economically blind
and angry
terrified shouters;
just the opposite of dumb,
yet not cooperatively mindful either
of our global polycultural DNA roots
with universal democratic intent
toward international Golden Rules.

“America” does not equal USA.
And America is even more than just North America,
including Central America,
now framed by a RightWing mental-spiritual Wall
against Mexico,
and, as for South America,
as any good Republican Catholic
(which may be a political-religious oxymoron)
or Protestant Evangelical
(which may also be a BadNews/GoodNews oxymoron)
will quickly remind us,
is the Wildly Wrong Hemisphere,
suspiciously socialist,
spiritually ambivalent,
even for a God
who was reputed to love
the entire Earth, equitably,
and is HimHerSelf more of a cooperativist,
in HisHer radically magnanimous love,
than an isolationist,

God does not keep all the best toys
for those awaiting
our long promised,
yet perpetually delayed,

This anciently felt Win-Win Rapture itself
has become more of a monocultural Win-Lose harvest
of pro-life WhiteHat born-agains
who define pro-life quite narrowly
to advocating for yet unborn human life
at risk of abortion,
without mentioning other
and socially
and ecologically
and economically climatic abortions
on their peculiarly NonRapturous Way.

Also at risk of AmericaFirst monoculturalism,
which confines promised Rapture of Earth’s economy
to the competitive supremacy
of U.S. Trumpian BusinessAsUsual Elites,
the big and fat OnePercent
of our global colonizing US wealthy persons,
investing heavily in AmericaFirst policies,
if more honest,
would be called
Top 1% of U.S. First and Last
PatrioticWinners v MatrioticLosers.

is a sugar-sweet way of saying
“The rest of y’all don’t matter.”

This is not the long promised Christian Rapture
of strong and healthy polyculturing democracy
as might possibly have been hoped for
by Constitution signing ForeFathers
born of more ecologically sound ForeMothers,
perennial gardeners and organic farmers
who were not, themselves,
particularly enamored of the top aristocratic OnePercent
in their 99% American nation-building immigrant time.

like all monocultural elitist intentions
and political investments,
forgets that economic and political walls,
once built,
work both ways,
and work against polycultural health
of economies
and political democracy of energy,
and positive nutrition ourselves,
ecology of global health care giving
and good Rapturous ecstatic climate receiving,
even for the Elite 1% of U.S. aristocracy,
and their potential 7th Generation grandchildren.

is aggressively rooted
in an inhumane replacement
of sacred restorative healing,
democracy’s inclusive vocation
of One Nation UNDER a Loving God,
within a LivingGod,
of and for a Positive Healthy PolyCulturing-Outcome God,

Setting aside secularized retributive justice models,
rooted more in God’s divinely-inspired Anger
as also Wrath against those who are too tolerant
of death
for Earth’s NonElite future generations
than actively pro-life of Earth
as iconic of all HerHis sacred forms
and flowing healthywealthy functions
toward regenerating Sacred EarthFirst.

We have no Christian-Republican Rapture on its way
if and when AmericaFirst finally arrives,
aborted from Earth’s diverse sacred natures
and cultures
and spirits
and dead on distinctly non-rapturous
anti-conservative of life arrival.

This is not just about climate change;
this AmericaFirst fake-rapture threat
predicts a future of ongoing
climate pathology.

AmericaFirst is a punishing pathology
against all;
including the Elite U.S. OnePercent.

According to the Institute for Policy Studies,
already the twenty wealthiest U.S. citizens
have slightly more wealth to share among themselves
than do the lower 50% of U.S. residents,
by the political way,
live disproportionately in RedStates
currently under advancing assault
by hurricanes and floods,
fires and tornadoes,
drought and shrinking aquifers,
chemically saturated rivers
and increasingly barren soil
and uprising polluted oceans.

But, hey,
what the self-inflicted hell;
AmericaFirst, right?
Never mind about Old School
restorative justice and peace,
nutritional polyculturing outcomes,
pro-sacred life
rather than limited to suboptimizing
anti-secularized death,
while supposedly worshipping a God
of EarthCreation and Love.

These are outmoded democratic ideals
for a healthy multicultural environment,
EarthFirst economy
and political subclimates.
And who retains any good faith
in such liberating,
but sadly fading,
Win-Win pipe dreams?






AntiEcological Apartheid

Patriotically empowered boundaries of apartheid
are also economic and ecological apartheid
of borders unrecognized by MatrioticEarth.

Economic and ecological apartheid
of Earth’s nature ourselves,
one Immigrant Creolizing Body,
are inhumane and anti-healthy faces
of politically empowered fascism,
rulership of patriarchally self-inspired Elites
now rabidly cannibalizing our own overpopulating
NatureSpirit MindBody.

To become ProLife,
for born and yet unborn,
cannot be AntiLiving lack of future Earth.

Demonic powers of fascism
are politically autocratic forces
building tolerance for desecrating polycultural
natural-spiritual dipolar experiences,
ecological history
with mythic herstory
of a self-cannibalizing Species
turning against MotherEarth,
flooding out and burning down
our own drying-out SacredHabitat,
Anima Mundi,
Holy NatureSpirit.

Desecrations of dipolar nature-spirit experience
is our narrative of Earth’s apartheid devolution
toward monocultural ecopolitical capitalism,

Our rapacious journey toward Loser outcomes
for unwashed 99% masses,
for what remains of One Sacred/Humane Organic LivingBody
of Christ, if you prefer,
of Buddha, for others,
of Yang/Yin interdependent/empty = notnot (0)Sum
calculating bicameral consciousness of self as others,
of PolyPathic resonant equivalence with notnot Polyphonic resonance,
double-binary regenerative strings
for co-relational meta-physicists
of and for PolyCultural EarthLife healthy outcomes,

Or whatever mythos
or logos
you healthy ecology
deeply and widely

We suffer from punitive apartheids of mediated BadNews,
dying hopes and dreams.

Outcomes our monocultural AmericaFirst advocates champion,
so red and yellow and black and white unborn babies Lose
prospects for any sacred climates
of healthy futures.

All those apartheid opposed to Golden Rule co-investments,
Win-Win ecopolitical commitment
have been incited,
to please continue raising your gambling RightWing hands
to vote against unborn babies of all fading species,
unborn healthy wombs,
unborn wealthy eggs,
rather than remaining actively stuck on strength
and resilience
of love,
sacred grace,
secular karma,
natural-spiritual cause-effect co-development
of EarthTribe’s DNA-RNA Solidarity Traditions
of ReGenesis,
restorative justice as equitable peace.

Exegetically orthodox nutrition
of ancient WiseElder PolyPaths.

So our GoodNews Gospel
could become our 2020 ReVision,
healing ego-ecotherapy
rather than continuing investments in apartheid.

Putting back together
what fundamentalist fake-piety,
what fascist fake-patriotism,
what aparthbeid fake-healthcare nationalism
LeftBrain dominantly
Business As WhiteCapital-Christian-AmericaFirst Usual
has deductively separated,
commodifying NonElite lives
apart from God’s long sacredly inclusive nature.

It is not only rudely and crudely elitist
to commodify EarthTribe’s holonic
secular-sacred potential balance,
It is also anti-democratic
and anti-healthcare
and anti-longterm slow organic wealth
of One PolyPathic-PolyPhonic Body SelfCare,
where SecularSelf
remains equivalently committed
to notnot (0)Sum SacredEarth.

Prime (0)Core bilateral dipolar Educational Relationship;
GoldenRules and Rhythms and Revolutions of natural law
as Sacred Original ResonantOrder.

Personal and intimately loving,
economically ecological,
politically conjoining
Win-Win actively cooperative bicameral hope
in PositivEnergy ReVolutions
for restoring local through global ego-ecojustice,
postmillennial climate peace, first 1% through last 99%,
for strong sun-warmed EarthFirst Days together

And resilient nighttime DNA-RNA solidarity stallions
whispering love’s karmic grace
with yet unrested cacophonic monoculturing residual nightmares,
deep learning sacred anti-apartheid ecology,
cooperative PositivEnergy EcoPolitics.




Dividing Island Nations

In a sense
each person capable of understanding these words
and those who speak diverse languages together
are island nations
splitting in two
by love
or fear
or both.

I have been concerned about the U.S. island of fundamentalist Christians,
formerly part of the One Creolizing Body of Christ,
now morbidly fascinated by fundamentalist Muslims,
as if they were each and all patriarchal elitists
terrorized by Holy JustWar Christians
who tend to vote Republican,
to further their religious missionary freedom
to deny moral equity to other natural-spiritual experiences
on other islands.

Republicans are increasingly AntiChristian Totalitarian
islands spreading across formerly restorative-therapeutic Earth,
interdependent health in a deep sacred ecological wealth sense,
sensory awareness
throughout islands which lovingly remain profoundly and radically regenerative,
revolutionary in a PositivEnergy Polyphonic Way.

More Paradise Island
than rabidly exploitive of growing capital value inequities.
More pro-nutritional ecology,
healthy economic co-investments of all life forms,
energy functions and systems and island networks.

Paradising Islands invest for wealthy personal-political restorative exchanges
of justice through peace
for islands making love and not so much aggressive totalitarian control-seeking
over other morally inferior islands
reduced to mere subservient commodities.

Paradise is more gratefully embraced by Wise Elders
of all multicultural islands
than is Westernized commodification
of Business As Usual capital exploitation
of drowning dividing islands.

AgriBusiness extractions of commodities,
like FossilEnergy withdrawals of deep rich value,
come to us
by way of colonizing capitalism’s WinLose models
projecting further devolutionary games
between divided island nations.

But extractive norms for growing Earth’s capital
came from older orthodoxies,
more sacredly and therapeutically held fundamental models
of Earth’s restorative peace
rooted in ego-ecojustice.

Growing resilient and sustainable capital,
whether you are just another divided island, one Ego,
or also the Superintendent of HealthCare Schools,
or just a teaching or parenting island,
or the CEO of a global conglomerating island,
the chief administrator of a community,
the head poobah of a faith community,
the leader of a pack of predative wolves
or a gaggle of migrating geese,
cannot long prevail through colonizing predations
extractions from less empowered island commodities.

Resilient and reweaving Paradise Islands
are made of and for restoring secular-sacred SynergyLove,
within and between EarthTribe islands.

WinWin here and now choices,
bordering polypathic questions of changing healthy time,
are our multiculturing GoldenRule default.

Restorative justice norms,
not retributive just and holy war retributions,
pre-empt and preclude
ongoing fascinations with fundamentalism’s zealous colonizing missionaries
and terrorists
harvesting God’s BadNews commodities,
now giving grateful cooperative way
to creolizing revolutionary Great Restorative Transitions,
polypathic but also anciently orthodox,
patently ecological health
over retributive punishments of hell
in both after life
and current dividing island life of dying fear
and magic anti-historical fascinations
with Revelationary Second Comings.

Personal budgets, economic and political investments,
empowerment planning,
like school budgets
and municipal budgets
and state budgets,
are best balanced through restoring active love’s cooperative therapies
for all island nations.

Sadly, deficit budgets and anti-ecological planning
are least resiliently balanced
through further extending extractive competitions
against Earth and Her SacredTribes,
growing debt with shrinking island nation hope
for restoring healthy economic futures.

Retributive injustice is against commodified EarthIsland,
where once grew
the late great WinWin
deep learning
ecological root systems,
primal notnot (0)-Core-Sum-Commons relational
co-arising ego-eco equity,
co-investments of Paradise Island Love,
Divine Grace,
Secular/Sacred Karma,
restorative ecopolitics
of and for healing Paradise Islands.


Sacred Energy

Fascism lives in tension with holy optimism,
as hatred fades in presence of mutual love,
as WinLose evolutionary models
give way to WinWin sacred Energy
stories and songs and dances,
as patriarchal colonization
gives way to matriarchal creolization.

synonymous with Totalitarianism,
as written by Hannah Arendt,
is a growing monocultural tendency toward,
and actual exercise of,
strong autocratic
insanely Yang-whacked CEO
control freaks.

Energy controlled by Elite patriarchal WinLose Models
of retribution as stronger and more self-sufficient
than cooperative restoration,

LeftBrain dominant thought control,
word-choice control,
communications control,
transportation in and out control,
violent control,
fear and hate-mongering control;

Yet absolutely no control
over YangNature with YinSpirit of Love,

In my bedraggled Webster’s
Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary,
probably purchased at the local Goodwill Store,
they add to fascism’s definition
“a tendency toward”
rather than a more conservative view of totalitarian energy
as actual authoritative power
to exercise monoculturing tyrannical economic and political environments,

Back in my pre-millennial era,
we called “a tendency toward” fascism
and bad parenting,
and bad politics,
and bad nihilistic economics,
and bad use of more optimistically WinWin
secular-sacred double-binding Energy.

Some tried to pass off school day histories of bullying
as their persional version of ToughLove Capital Development Experience
troubled occasionally by Anger MisManagement,
JustWar Defensiveness,

But, in the rural MidWest
we patriotically called it
lack of co-redeeming love
and lack of good faith
and pathological lack of healthy cooperative trust
in sacred multiculturing Golden Rules
for active use of positive polypathic Energy
to control over-investment in self-perpetuating
doubly boundup
egocentric bullying
to produce further Negative Desecrating Energy.

Some take the view that energy,
like power,
is a value-neutral thing,
but both scientific secular and sacred spiritual paradigms
speak of Positive Energy
and Negative Energy
and sensory-sensual Energy
and double-binding informational Energy
of regenerative cooperatives
and degenerative dissonance
and over-heating climates
of overYanged competitions.

We might embrace this further sacred ecological view
that Positive Energy grows toward integrity
of democratic cooperativity,
while Negative Energy grows toward totalitarian fascism,
seeking control over democratic integrity
of Ego’s inside voice
for EcoConsciousness

Conscious Energy of ourselves
hopefully among far more love as Positive Energy
and less hate-marketing
and fear-mongering
and anger-mismanagement
shouting out against Commons EarthSoul harmonies.

Outdoor inside nature-spirit voices
listening less to bullies
and bad parenting
and horridly rabid CEOs
favoring and too tolerant of played-out aggressions.

PositiveEnergy Creation Stories
are love stories,
and love stories
are EnergyIntegrity Stories.
And there is nothing ambivalent
or neutral
or stagnantly Traditional
or non-sensual
or non-sensory
or violently aggressive
or even self-righteously defensive
about them.

Sacred Paradise is about Energy Democracy.
That other place,
within and without,
is about growing tendencies toward paranoia,
and Energy Fascism.

So, is your EnergyGod
one of PolyphonicLove
for restorative justice and liberty
with all democratic positive energizers?

Or is your EnergyGod
one of Fascist control over PositivEnergy
Using magic sorcery of monoculturing fundamental polarization
with colonizing predative intent,
missionary retributions rather than missions of redemption,
self-righteous laws and rules
and jealous orders
held more closely than sacred restorative peace and justice,
WinWin love songs and dances,
re-creation stories.

Predations of fascism thrive on punishment,
flames of anger,
jealous of all the PositiveEnergy gods and goddesses
of EarthSoul’s Original PolyPhonic Intent.

Perhaps you can have both
our PositiveEnergy PolyphonicGod
and your NegativeEnergy fascist demons and CEOs,
bullies and bad
bigoted and sexist parents,
as many of us do,
but it is important to Earth’s survival
that we become better educated,
better noticers of which is which,
and how we are each from some of both.

PositivEnergy wants to become better listeners
and speakers
and voters
and leaders
for non-violent ReGenerativEnergy,

More frequently found in our forests
and backyards
than in our smartphones and
laptops and
BadEnergy News Stories

And, sadly,
our less than PositivEnergy optimizing
monoculturish RightWing schools
and parent educators,
and lifeskills mentors,
and congressional governing authorities
growing NegativEnergy Bodies
suffering near total bicameral collapse,

Dismembering sacred memories,
GoldenRule songs and dances
of Paradise ReMembering
Positive Energy
to promote future climates
polyculturing healthy PositivEnergy,
AnimaMundi, within as without,
Holy EgoEco Balancing NatureSpirits.

Fascism lives in tension with holy optimism,
as hatred fades in presence of mutual love,
as LeftBrain denialism
grows in co-arising tension
with RightBrain sacred PositivEnergy.


Energy Democracy v Fascism

I suppose
is the logical conclusion
of rabidly overpopulated fascism.

Some cannibals,
perhaps all,
ate their human prey
not for typical nutritional reasons
like other forms of digested nature,
but more specifically
because those dining
hoped their prey’s sacred powers
would thereby become their own,
conjoining for their unilateral augmentation,
like fascism.

At first blush
this sounds like appalling inhumane sacrifice
as I’m sure it shall remain
til red sky dusks of fascism
dawn hopeless red skies
of climate cannibalizing pathology.

It seems so obvious
that positive communication
and mutual cooperative trust
would be a healthier path,
and more likely of success
to perpetuate this conjoining goal
of energetic nutritional powers
with human prey,
fellow civil and democratic residents,
all cooperative WinWin citizens of Earth.

Even more enlightened slave owners
preferred, and sometimes invested in,
multi-generational creolizing domestic bliss
rather than harvesting the bought and paid for help.

The value exchanges
between outside energy and inside nutrition
are best reflected on from both outside, LeftBrain convexly,
and inside, RightBrain concave bilateral, views.

Who could be an Ego predator
who has never know themselves
as a potential EcoPrey?

Who prays to a higher Energy power
without having succumbed to Lower powers?

Human natural-spiritual co-intelligence,
watching icy double-boundaries of a winter river
give way to open flowing water
in warmer weather,
Also watcher this river in colder weather,
its self-identity as flowing water
giving way to hardening and thickening ice-crystal edges,
double-boundaries to Right and Left,
West and East,
North and South,
and all polypathic directions
of and for sacred nutritional energy exchanges,
wu-wei transforming relationships
in-between EnergyOut and NutritionIn,
Ego and Eco,
Yang and Yin.

Even so,
lacking this bilateral intelligence of a healthy WinWin river,
sometimes warmer and wider systems
and sometimes colder,
deeper networks of cooperative exchange,
Human nature persists with LeftBrain over-heating hubris
in choosing WinLose monoculturing excess,
claiming to be the only important river of Energy
and Sacred Nutrition.

We move from Left-Right cognitive-affective dissonance
through rabidly stressed-out paranoia,
still devouring our own human and nonhuman prey,
especially our own young and poor and vulnerable,
our criminals and lazy-assed addicts
victims all laissez-faire punished
with our too-ready tolerance
of retributive models
advocating HolierThanThou
self-righteous injustice.

As if prisons
or shackles of slavery
and racism
and sexism
and fascism
could be any more likely to lead to growing positive energy
and nutrition
within this river of society’s succeeding generations
than cannibalism
led to any more valuie than another high protein meal.

A fascist meal
serving up a serious case of stinky shits after
flushed down the nearest toilet
polluting our sacred water
then our sacred soil
not to mention our acidifying atmosphere
of growing pathological climates,
and outside,
inside against outside,

Earth’s river of Energy-SacredNutrition
still flows inside our own EgoFascist FadingSilos,
still declaring retributive holy wars,
self-righteous inquisitions of suspicious immigrants,
witchhunts against all Energy deemed unlike our nutritious EgoSelves.

and gay and lesbian and transgender-bashing
and excommunicating,
disenfranchising and devaluing,
raping and criminalizing,
denouncing and murdering,
hating and fear-mongering,
and other lovely forms of socially tolerated retribution,

Just wars
declared by older males,
but not wiser,
against younger potential upcoming competitors.

Desecrating jihads of unholiness,
populist nominations
and voting,
applause and support
for icons of defueling fear-mongering,
anti-universal health of Earth
AntiMessianic Violent Choices.

Investing in retributive guns and prisons
rather than restorative therapy and healing.

Committed to punishing all potential WinLose competitors
more than loving,

New Year Insanity Resonanciations

I have already noted a change,
a deepening analysis
in second year framing of the Trump Administration’s
first hazing year in O.D. fascist process.

A DOA year ago,
we grew heatedly invested in fake-conversations
about whether the fake-patriotic Republican Party
was really all that more fake-Constitutionally media
and unmediatedly insane
than other U.S First and Only partisans,
other special fat and long-infested interests.

This January
by contrast
we apparently have accepted last year’s insanely obvious
supremacy of insanity
held by Republican national leaders,
as the last Wise PatriarchalElder shadows
of Eisenhower AntiMilitaryIndustrial Administrative investments
fade into family multicultural values
associated with stardust memories.

Now our questions
have evolved into which Republicans are most insane
and which slightly less so,
on a scale from ZenZero
through RightWing rabid overpopulated paranoia
nightmares of sleep-deficit caffeinated Western cultures
self-medicating chronic stress
of patriarchal violent secularizing
indiscriminate double-binding MADness tendencies;
absence of bilateral ego-eco consciousness.

by the beginning of a Trumpian ThirdReich,
these National FakeConstitutionally InCorrect Republicans
will all be too busy
locking each other up in their insane asylums
and retributive secular courts of punitive law
and lack of moral aesthetic nature-spirit harmonic order,
and then throwing away the keys
to their not-so-divine Kingdoms of Competing EitherOr
Absence of Sufficient SacredGrace.

Such third year fascist distractions
could get them unelected,
and unelectable,
as we post-millennially open
to more organically Green Democratic Ways
and PermaCultural Means
toward Restorative Justice
as also Healthy EcoPolitical Grace
of AbundantLove.
