I feel like a high school civics class dropout.
So much confuses me,
to this day,
about democratic constitutional law,
which feels like it should have WinWin original empowerment intent,
about public and private rights,
protected against others’ immoral and illegal, unhealthy wrongs of infringement,
and why we invest so much of our gross,
and I mean really Gross,
in what could not possibly be public health outcomes.
If governments are not for liberating and defending public health
then how could we realistically hope for those constitutionally promised deliverables:
Obviously I missed the day
when our high school civics and U.S. history teacher
explained the complex relationships
between public health
and growing democratic
and public service life,
and healthy-wealthy ways
of building a resilient
how did the Supreme Court buy into the argument
that corporations have the right to buy and sell candidates for public office
because, if they didn’t,
then our legislative regulators
would thereby unconstitutionally restrict
their rights of free speech
as stipulated by our First Amendment?
I have the right to speak up for the public health benefits of marijuana
as compared to alcoholic beverages,
but do I have a first amendment right to purchase, carry, and consume marijuana?
In communications theory,
we differentiate between what is linguistic performance
and what is not speech
but non-verbal action,
Why would that distinction not apply to the First Amendment
for white privileged patriarchal corporations
and yet does seem to apply for just regular persons
like you and me?
I have the right to speak out for white nationalism.
I could even argue that the abolition of slavery
was an unconstitutional taking of personal property,
but that would not give me the right to go out and buy a person,
not even a candidate for public cooperative WinWin wealth service.
It obviously was my misunderstanding
that the First Amendment protection of personal
(not incorporated) rights
is restricted to free speech and peaceful assembly.
Now I’m trying to wrap my Left and Right Brain around
First Amendment incorporated rights to buy and sell governing authority,
rights to buy and sell democratic trust commitments
and transparently free choice-speaking and democratic health investing,
rights to buy and divest of cooperative cultural integrity
to robustly serve in our public health sector
for equal and interdependently informed,
preformed personal (not incorporated) voices
unwilling to buy and sell pro-organic healthy resilient lives.
I keep going back to historic constitution development notes
about this resonant rhetorical First Amendment,
trying to find a strict conservative defense of original intent
that might responsibly, and healthily, stretch enough
to include corporate freedom to peacefully purchase public assemblies
and rent free-market corporate spokespersons
for Win/Lose choices
supporting short-term capital returns
against ecological-organic long-term democratic healthy climate services
predicting nothing but further Lose/Lose patriarchal retributive injustice
as everyday capital-hoarding
cynical and nihilistic privileged market freedom
for inordinate inhumane over-investment
in enslaving otherwise reasonably healthy minds
and public spirits
and trusting natures
for freely communicating democratically resilient health services.
when I was in graduate school,
studying political philosophy,
and integral multicultural wealth-of-health design,
we learned corporate investment in partisan political processes
as a private sector unhealthy opportunity
to grow white privileged economic buy and sell colonialism,
sponsored and supported by xenophobic unhealthy minds.
Which feels rather distant
from protecting our informed rights
to free and robust speech
and peaceful assembly
within and among this public service
promoting resiliently wealthy eco-logical,
of these healthy uniting WinWin States.
