Why Capitalism Failed

I’m reading a publication of Yale Press,
a “centrist” polemic against the LeftBrain’s libertarian excesses,
and against RightBrain’s sinister shadow
of totalitarian uniformity
playing nihilistic lose/lose
on a global interpersonal
public sector stage three
of nationalistic climate annihilation,

Where RightBrain’s win/win golden shadow
prefers indigenously universal integrity,
communion of ancient multicultural diversity,
playing democratically healthy win/win games
on an intrapersonal through global climate stage four
of 20-20 revolutionary peace
as also restoring LeftBrain cognitive bicameral consciousness.

Here I’m finding a Roman Catholic skewed analysis
of a “sexual revolution”
as sinister shadow
of Enlightenment attraction to individual freedoms
over social responsibility
and even public sector moral rules
of natural/spiritual law.

While I can see and feel historic accuracy here,
at the same time
this Liberalism
as described
is not at all the Liberal Religion I experience in UU,
or even the Liberal Education
I receive and give
in compassionate win/win dialogue
and everyday conversation.

Nor is this misnomer for Patriarchal Capitalism
what I experience with Friends
and in mature mainline Christian meetings
communions
sanctuaries from win/lose zero-sum
Business As Monoculturally Usual
way too theoretical and theo-unlogical and transcendent
to inform everyday natural communication,
much less ecologically healthy relationships.

Nor is libertine sexualized pathology
what I have experienced in the Liberal multicultural love
of compassionate Earth,
multiculturally interdependent EarthTribes,
and ecologically healthy inter-relationships
of natural/spiritual compassion.

The Liberal I am concerned about conserving,
and the Liberals I celebrate multicultural communion with,
are strongly
emotionally committed
co-invested in Earth
and natural law
and spiritual order
as an interdependently freeing web
connecting egalitarian dignity
of all
God’s/Goddesses’/Earth’s
living healthyLeft/wealthyRight
minded-hearted
polypathic
polyphonic
polynomials not-not ZeroSum
becoming bicamerally ego/eco
yang/yin
nature/spirit
secular/sacred liberated lovers
of integrally conservational co-passions.

This Liberal I would myself, with others, conserve
for healthy purpose,
The Liberals I conservatively know
in my own reserved
yet internally changing
creolizing
transubstantiating
co-acclimating
co-passioning way,
would no more let go of our interdependent web
of Earth’s truthful
trusting
and beautiful nature/spirit nondual interface
of Enlightenment,
than grab hold too conservatively
too tightly to individual rights to speak and do
that would infringe on Others’ rights
to freely listen to transparent truths
and behave with openness to change
for growing healthier and wealthier and wiser
vulnerably interdependent Beauty Paradise.

Which, if I recall,
takes us back,
full circle,
to the internally felt Light
that originally
and democratic constitutionally
sparks individual RightBrain Enlightenment Eras,
interdependent nutritional augmentation of organic health-webs,
in response to
LeftBrain Industrial-Weaponed Violent Revolutions,
autonomous capitalism’s fragmentation
born of white male privileged apartheid.

What is midway central
is also narrow-way double-bound
egalitarian Left nature
co-arising
interdependent Right holonic spirit.

Now that’s in the book Iain McGilchrist wrote
and Yale Press also published.

Liberal LeftWing Flight

It has been said
Charles Darwin was not happy
with leftbrain’s Survival of the Fittest
without rightbrain’s ecosystemic health roots
in Thrival of the Fittin-ingest,

Which Bateson,
and other systemic ecologists,
would later call interdependent co-acclimation,
and Jane Gordon politically theorizes
rare histories of win/win creolization
with much healthier outcomes
and wealthier too,
than leftbrain’s fascination
with wealth-acquiring colonization.

Foolish leftbrain dominance,
so unaware history has regeneratively concluded
there is no lasting resilient wealth
without ecosystemic EarthClimate health.

Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations
produced similar unease
about evolutionary theories
denying the primally obvious
Health of Interdependent NationStates
through robust natural/spiritual Earth consciousness,
co-passioning double-binding nonduality,
like bipolar either Yang or Yin of reductive ZeroSum reasoning
and dipolar both Yang with Yin of inductive ZeroSoul co-nurturing.

While Adam Smith’s leftbrain wrote,
“The necessity of civil government grows up
with the acquisition of valuable property…
till there be property there can be no government,
the very end of which is to secure wealth,
and to defend the rich
from the poor.”

His more interdependently ecosystemic rightbrain
was feeling,
“The opportunities of civilizing governance grows up and out
with the acquisition of healthy interdependent properties
of communal co-acclimation…
till there be cooperatively integral properties
there can be no ego/ecosystemically thriving co-governance,
the very beginning through end of which is to secure health,
and to defend the poor
from the kleptocratic colonizations
of the too leftbrain dominant rich.”

Where “capitalism permits wealth
to purchase,
own,
and profit from natural resources,”
notes Kenneth Cloke’s ecosystemic analysis,

There also,
integralism, integrity,
invites health to invest in,
to cooperatively own wealth,
and resiliently benefit with nondual natural/spiritual resources,

Not only LeftBrain “exhausting the land on which our food is produced,”
but also RightBrain feeding our soil-souls
from which our sensory nutritional awareness is rooted
and wombed;

Not only “poisoning the water we drink
and polluting the air we breathe,”
But also healing the living waters we consume
and collaboratively purifying the air trees breathe
and bicameral lungs digest
ingest
outgesture;

Not merely “the sale and consumption of fossil fuels,
irrevocably heating our planet,
altering our weather,
raising sea levels,
extinguishing countless species
and threatening the survival of millions,
if not all species”…

But also re-investment in natural/spiritual
left/right systems
interdependently cooling our robust planet,
re-acclimating our weather,
re-lowering sea levels,
cooperatively planting and nurturing countless species
and fostering the thrival of ecosystemically resilient millions,
if not all left/right
yang/yin balancing
anthro/eco-systemic life
on secular/sacred
deductive/inductive
unfolding explicate/refolding implicately co-arising
win/win binomial ZeroSoul compassion with Earth.

Where leftbrain’s either + or (-,-)1
is also rightbrain’s resolution
both + and (-,-)0-Soul,
like positive psychology polynomials
equivalently health/wealth valued
as not-not polynomial
neurologically interdependent polypathic web systems,
inviting both wealthy rightbrain polyphonic co-passion
and further leftbrain healthy curiosity.

Note: This piece is heavily indebted to the dialogue and conflict resolution work, growing more robust resilient democracy systems, as found in Kenneth Cloke’s “Politics, Dialogue and the Evolution of Democracy.” concerned with how to win/win discuss race, abortion, immigration, gun control, climate change, same sex marriage, and other Hot Topics.
