Conversion Therapies

I could not support a ban on Conversion Therapy
to change gay into straight,
spirals into lines,
because I believe we should each be free
to pay for any alternative languages
someone might be prepared to make
and write
and speak,
with self-marketing audiences to listen
with therapeutic outcomes genuinely preferred.

If some unhappy gay person,
or lesbian longing to be not,
remains willing to invest in persuasions
to switch teams,
transfer and exchange identities,
then that’s a high risk investment
that will die its own ego-exhausting death
when conversion
levels into diverse reversions
and/or some depriving perversion of healthy cooperating love,
or inversions into repressive silos called despair
and, more likely, some of all
of the above.

But, conversion therapy for unhappy gay to happy straight
only if this becomes equally available
accessible therapies
for unhappy straight toward happy gay,
for if it can work
to teach someone into a different dominant identity,
then it could work both ways,
more bisexually.

And, if conversion therapies can,
they should,
to be fair to all those unhappy
with their current team,
or teams,
preferably multiculturing toward health,
rather than monoculturing toward further climates of pathology.

Then we might invite further Conversion Therapies.
Unhappy Conservatives
becoming wealthier quasi-progressive
Earth natural-spiritual residents again,
and vice versa,
except more ecotherapeutic conservators
of regeneratively full-steamed life.

If all it takes is investing in some therapist
to convert my unhappiest attributes
into those that would make my new best ecopolitical day,
then such therapy should not just be free
from gay to straight
and straight to gay
but equally persuasive
for all now feeling out
wanting more in toward sane integrity.

But, investors beware,
we have had many WinLose Therapists
for unhappy powers to become more capital rich,
yet only few narrow WinWin unhappy rich
to become more simply and contentedly reinvesting
away from larger WinLose anti-therapeutic tragedies.

The larger WinLose therapeutic sector
has best outcomes
only for already full-played out entrepreneurial change agents,
and their larger scale not-so-therapeutic marketers
of further competitions
within and between
our diverse unhappy identities.

Conversion AntiTherapy
would be so funny
if not so ecopolitically tragic.

Public Sector Predators

I have lately noticed
WinLose bottom-line business competitors
lead within for-profit rabidly accelerating circles
and are not thereby well prepared
to produce effective robust outcomes
in a more WinWin democratic public service role,
elected or appointed.

I have further noted
general decline of original democratic public servant roles,
revolutionarily replaced by a competing public predator CEO role,
pirating political powers
to better hoard aristocratic economic rewards.

This has been the stuff of history,
fall of Empires,
but also for-profit failing corporations.

It is these latter corporate failures
even beyond more nakedly protected democratic losses,
where authority of position
includes authority to continue employing others
in your jail,
or setting lowly employees free
to market themselves elsewhere,
for democratic enriching profit
or for self-serving quarterly producing profits
for absent short-term disinvested owners
and their equally self-serving managers,
Colossus Trumpians, I suppose,
rather than the old school
public servant model.

Living in a self-seeking climate of growing pathology,
where schools neither mentor nor bother to even lecture
the socially cooperative primacy of mutual service,
grace of gratitude both given and received,
for civic responsibilities growing into interdependent authorities,
nor are parents necessarily skilled leaders
of mutually cooperative WinWin
ecopolitical skill-set development.

For these reasons,
and probably far remedially more,
it seemed right and normal,
good and proper,
that the best cooperatively judicious diplomats
of and for public policies and government procedures,
whether self-governing or also other-governing,
would be those with public servant sector backgrounds,
rather than private predative sector unforgiven foregrounds,
understories of evolutionary Might Makes Right.

Yet this model of competing ruthless leadership
just now appears a Commons lowering denominator
for both public and private sectors,
for more multiculturing cooperative wisdom.

It should be no more a surprise
to a U.S. President
that Presidents do not have unmitigated autonomous powers
of information disclosure
nor of information fabrication,
of energy sharing and conserving
nor of energy hoarding for further self-investing
even further autonomously unmitigated authorities
of revenge and competing egomanias,
than surprise to a CEO
of any healthy cooperatively-managed corporation
where private sector mutual service
and mutually subsidiary authorities
are co-responsibilities of all
who breathe and think maturely,
speak and listen democratically,
with heart beats
both diastatic wealthy
and systolic healthy,
both full and empty of ego/eco-viral powers,
mutually grateful
for all who live and laugh
midway between fully is and yet not yet.

Public private servants,
consuming no more relational powers
than we can individually and collectively reproduce,
replace,
recycle.

Because we elect and normally appoint
Public Servants
based on their prior experience
as Private Predators,
wealth and power accumulating hoarders
at their capital top
bucks stop here
in this pirate place
my allies and I have bought and sold for,
I am learning
that we don’t public service get
what we do private sexist and racist and elitist pest
invest in.

Application forms
and ballots
all seek WinWin caregivers,
too often counted and selected
by WinLose bully Presidents,
wearing Chief Executive Officer hats
rather than carrying Lead Servant Mentor portfolios.

Legislators and judges
educators and parents
achieve more wholesome outcomes
by remaining students of deep ecological listening
than by becoming teachers
of Ayn Rand’s egocentric economics
for antisocial climbers.

Like Riding A Bike

What do I nurture?
And what do I try to control?
Do I control what I nurture?
Do I nurture control?
And what about freedom
and spontaneity?
Can I control nurturing random choices,
expressions,
entertainments,
performances,
transactions,
relationships?

How much is too much control,
no longer nurturing wealth as health?

What do we nurture through our controlled investments?
Our transactions?
Our daily relationship choices
on through to our annual self-taxing and re-assessment relationships?
And what do we try to control?
And do we control that we nurture healthier candidates
rather than more pathologically armed pirates
of and for our attention retention?

When riding a cooperative intended horse,
I nurture direction by invitation.
Our shared control
is through mutual continued re-invitation,
reweaving of cooperative intents and purposes
to continue our epic adventure
together.

Until we grow time to nurture rest
and control our thirst
and our complex hungers
for yang’s control
with and as
yin’s nurturing complicity.

Losing My Competing Minds

A mind,
I think,
should be a brain
still in a living organic body
in homeostatic normative relationship.

A human mind
could become mid-sized, just right,
and left,
not too hot, not too cold,
not too light, not too dark and heavy,
yet sometimes too complexly dense with chaos theories
rather than synergetic creolizing hypotheses
favoring thermodynamically ego/eco-balancing biosystems,
relying on double-binding feedback loops
of endosymbiotic cooperativity
within ectosymbiotic acclimations
without,
maintaining polypathic health
of multiculturing inter-relationship,
dipolar interdependence
slowly creolizing wealth of further enculturations
into even more polypathic bicameral balance.

A mid-sized just-right humane ecosystem
is a horrible potential to waste
to too-closed off entropic loss
of regenerative energy,
dissipating off into cognitive-affective dissonance,
both verbal and non-verbal dismay,
near death before open-systemic maturing time.

Aging is post-revolutionary degenerative maturation,
quieting grace.
Suicide and depression,
repression and ecopolitical suppressions
are pre-revolutionary,
before their regenerate maturing fullness
of fertile time.

A mind
is a brain
within a fertile
well-timed
pre- and post-revolutionary
sacred acclimating body.

Health Systemic CoInvestment

If we were to follow a health model
for optimizing both economic and ecological wealth outcomes,
then investment in public and domestic educational systems
for active ecotherapeutic practice
and developing cooperative, self-regenerative systems,
would become our primary fiscal investment,

While military-surgical remediation
of past overly-competitive pathologies
would become a more secondary retaliatory Win-Lose
defensive strategy,
reserved for proportional disinvestment
in further nationalistic and/or tribal sickness.

So, we might have a slow-growing Educational Defense Department
with a big multicultural peace-mentoring curriculum
and proportionally appropriate investment priorities
for growing active peace domestically,
as globally.

And, a more slow-shrinking Military Police Surgical Department,
with a much smaller multicultural re-education agenda
for WinWin ecosystemic strategies
for evolving long-term cooperative remediation
to re-establish peace with justice
mercifully matriarchal/patriarchal domestic
as graciously extending our global family
through further revolutions of regenerative networks.

Two seminal Biblical teachings seem relevant
to this health and prosperity model.
Those who live by ballistic WinLose swords,
shall die by the sword,
alone.
Yet, those who live by active cooperative co-redemptive love,
shall die in love,
together as One Interdependent Body.

If our personal and political ecotherapeutic love-lives
are a two-edged sword,
all of regenerative history
and degenerating past cultures
conjoin to teach us cooperative health-mentored education
best remains our Yang front regenerate edge,
leaving competitive WinLose military divestment priorities
to a more secondary defensive strategy
for remedially,
surgically,
proportionally,
reverse-hierarchically protecting freedom and democracy and trust and love,
internal and external,
where cooperative economic and ecological climate balance,
domestic and political,
requires us all to sustain even further short-term loss
within Earth’s cooperative health and prosperity,
eco-regenerative intention.

When peace education and public cooperative-ownership
and self/other governing mentorship,
cultural praxis,
multicultural creolization of nutritional voices and sources,
catchment and re-investment,
no longer lead our personal and public investment priorities,
then competitively dying by a WinLose sword
will lead our way to further climates of hubris,
ego/eco anticentric,
ethno-supremacist,
anthropocentric,
rather than caring for Earth,
regenerating cooperative relations with Others,
to care for our health wealthing educated,
and co-mentoring, Selves.

ReCreating MaryJuanita

I noticed that one of the Kennedy patriarchs,
probably a Joseph or John or Ted
or Tim or Matthew or Mark or Luke,
Why do they all begin to look and sound the same to me?
Anyway, one of these informed and educated and good guys
responded to decriminalizing ingestion of THC,
cautioning us regarding potential public health hazards.

While I share some of these bleary and yet specific concerns,
Mr. Kennedy and I do seem to view these potential pathological influences
through two quite different frames of reference.

He approaches dangers of THC influence
in contrast to a population that would otherwise presumably ingest
organic goat’s milk and wild honey.

I see the prospects for a THC cooperative addicted society
in pleasant contrast
to our current alcohol degenerative indigestion
addicted to bipolar competing ecopolitical disculturation.

From a public health perspective,
given only a choice between THC or alcohol decriminalization,
the evidence of history appears to vote
for the more regenerative THC.

Now,
if we could addict honey bees to THC pollen,
and goats to voraciously forage on marijuana fibers,
and we became the land of goat milk and THC honey;
that, I suppose,
would be so much more
our healthier wealth of opportunity.

A Social Complex

What is social complexity?
asks and answers Robert Wright
which also reads just as right as
What is regenerative density?
to me
and perhaps to Bucky Fuller,
and then again Gregory Bateson’s
What is sacred ecology?
comes to reweave Laotse’s
What is self/other-regenerative abundant flow of governance?

Mr. Wright
looks back to Mr. Leslie White:
“Cultural [and economic and political and psychological] evolution,
he (White) announced,
could be measured by a single [appositional]gauge,
calibrated in terms of [regenerative/degenerative] energy.”

Mr. Wright,
quoting Mr. White-Wright creolization,
“[Multi]Culture develops
when the amount of energy harnessed
[net produced-regenerate/consumed-degenerate]
by man [and woman and all EarthTribes and Earth and all healthy developing/maturing/aging organic systems]
per [(0)-Sum WinWin] capita
per year
per life
is increased [more cooperative WinWin than competitive WinLose]”;

Mr. Wright,
about Mr White,
“He virtually equated cultural evolution
with the [ecopolitical] evolution
of [positive-WinWin/negative-WinLose] energy [self-regenerative] technology.
The [regenerative integrating-nurturing] efficiency
with which [positive] energy is captured [harvested, cooperatively invited]
and employed [co-invested]
wasn’t just a cause,
or a gauge,
but the [winwin-both/and with either/or bilateral] cause,
and the [bicameral balancing] gauge,
of [ecopolitical] [multi]cultural evolution.”

What is Earth’s ecopolitical creolizing-democratizing complexity?
What is growing regenerative health-wealth density
while shrinking degenerative EitherOr LeftBrain deductive
Patriarchal Anthro-Elitist dominance?

When I want to hear more social complexity,
I stay inside and listen to the OldNews.
When I want to see and hear and smell more global regenerativity,
climate and landscape health and safety,
I step outside
and remain there as cooperatively as possible
for as long as possible,
and usually as silently as possible,
although singing and laughter and dancing are coopratively invited.

I cannot sustain an inside voice of War against Patriarchal Terrorists,
but I can maintain an outside voice of Nurturing
with Matriarchal-WinWin Cooperative CoOwnership.

Anthro-rhetorical complexity
and regenerative-integrity density
are the same organic-systemic becoming,
both Left-WinWin regenerative and ElderRight-WinLose degenerative-antipathic distrust and co-empathic-aptic trust
in DNA’s BiLateral-CoOperative Business As Usual
on and with and of and for ever more
Yin-matriarchal/Yang-patriarchal
regenerating ecopolitical density.

Quotes from Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny, p. 344, Robert Wright, 2000.
