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
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
living healthyLeft/wealthyRight
polynomials not-not ZeroSum
becoming bicamerally ego/eco
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
co-passioning way,
would no more let go of our interdependent web
of Earth’s truthful
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
interdependent Right holonic spirit.

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


History’s Balancing Act

I continue reading Iain McGilchrist’s
“The Master [Mistress] and his [her] Emissary,”
a retelling of many RightWing dominant
and LeftWing repressed and suppressed events
and pro-orthodox patriarchal white privileged histories
of nationalistic fatherlands
written across the individual ego-hearts
and eco-habitats
of every EarthMother trans-regenerator
born into spatially incremental awareness
through temporally exponential change–

like a river
greeting an ocean
and an ocean
receiving a river.

Where Julian Jaynes
tells a psychological story of bicameral breakdown
into RightWing bipolar schizophrenic madness,

Introducing healing possibilities
in WinLeft/WinRight
WinWest/WinEastern dipolar integrity,

McGilchrist sees bicameral balance buildup
of LeftBrain ego competence
to passionately re-heal RightBrain integrity
remembering each ego-individuating story,
restorative listening and speaking continuous identity’s history
uniquely, yet interdependently,
told through bicameral
binomial polypathic
polyphonic musing music
polynomially ZeroSoul Zone
resiliently dancing
universal ego
and unitarian eco-habitat resonance,

Integrity’s double-boundary
Yes! Yes!
ecstatic communion potential.


Tolerating Itchiness

A healthy distance for tolerating LeftBrain dominance
is to recognize our global incarnation
into RightWing intolerant prominence
as dogma of a strictly white hetero-male privileged unkind.

A distance between silent impatience
and loud dissent
is the distance between nonverbal nonviolence
and irritatingly verbal communication.

A tolerable distinction between quieter dissonance
and boisterous intolerance
is a distance between non-violent
and full LeftBrain dominantly overtaking
and/or sado-masochistic bipolarity
and/or socio-pathology
and/or undemocratic kleptocratic
Win/Lose capitalistic intention
in a LeftBrain alpha dog eats and beats
RightBrain beta feminist…dog world
on any over-heated…itchy day
he chooses inhumanely sick
ZeroSum one-sided pleasure.

So sorry.
This started out as a quietly sedate communication
and ended in a most unfortunately aggressive
sound of furious way.



I’m reading this book about germs and guns and steel
and pre-history
and human history,
predators and prey,
and people praying they won’t be predatored.

You know,
light bedtime reading.

So, this guy who wrote the book…

No, not the Daniel Quinn thing.
Quinn thinks the beginning and end of our nutritional civilization story
is food production.
He forgets we can also hear cooperative health
and overly-rabid pathologies,
like CEOs calling “bleed the poor to feed those already too rich”
“tax cuts”.

I mean,
I guess they are tax cuts
if you happen to be in the top 20% US income bracket,
but that seems to miss the healthier democratic point
that Lower 80% Lives Matter Too.

No, not Quinn,
it is this younger guy,
Jared Diamond,
who probably never even met Thomas Merton.

Diamond mentions “kleptocracy”
where I would have used “plutocracy”
or “aristocracy”
rather than “democracy”
but this sounded too kleptomanic
to nutritiously feed integrity
of national health
and personal
and family
and non-elite wealth.

So I had to look up this kleptocracy word
to see if it might be the economist’s view
of the political scientist’s view
of plutocracy.

And, sure enough,
here it is,
right, but feeling very wrong,
on dictionary.com:
“A government or state in which
those in power exploit national resources
and steal”

This sounds familiar
from the Declaration of Independence,
in which the original USA forefathers
informed the British aristocracy
that we are all done
with the stealing of natural and human resources
thing they called “taxes” and “fees”
and the white male property owners
(including slaveowners)
called tribute
and extortion.

Meanwhile I was listening to the Cohen testimony
about some plutocratic kleptocrat
racist extortionist
buying and selling his white privileged way
into our way too WhiteHouse
extolling the unabashed value of WinLose capitalism,
so long as those born into “Win” households
remain unfettered from their colonizing
and extorting
and racist
and homophobic
and xenophobic lack
of any semblance
of traditional Christian virtues
or Islamic virtues,
or Buddhist virtues,
or Taoist virtues,
or Hindu virtues,
or Jewish virtues,
or democratic constitutional well-being
and prosperity virtues.

So, there you go,
I’ve already learned my new word for this plutocratic day
and kleptocratic nightmare.

Who knew?
We have words for everything
someone might ever need
to slice and dice
and serve up,
like food production
to grow less healthy
uncivilized undemocracies.


Spike N’ Donald

Spike cannot be accurately accused of reverse-racism
after his lifetime of chronic WhiteHouse Trumpian privileged,
Spike disempowering,
socially acerbic exposure

For the same reason
calling privileged daytime
“reverse nighttime”
takes us back only from moon set
toward moon rise

And does nothing to honestly confront
Trumpian fake-theological utopias
in which god’s full grace
brightest shines in space
only from colonizing sun rise
toward enslaving sun sets
by privilege of dominating light-skinned race.


These Liberating Truths

I’m musing with Jill Lepore,
historian (Harvard feminist, but definitely within brackets of general interest),
through eight hundred pages of These Truths
telling an other U.S. herstory.

She starkly says,
“Slavery is political”
while I had been thinking more of addictive economic
and punitive domestic relationships,
enslaving social absence of healthy relationships,
Dr. Lepore reminds me
about powerful natural/spiritual inter-relationships,
where overpowering addictions meet underpowering enslavement.

Nationalistically political
community-toxic apartheid,
personally oppressive-repressive ego-supremacist pathological
for both LeftBrain long-term smart investors
and RightBrain universal-frame cooperatively sentient property(ies) development.

LosePredator/LosePrey colonizing politics
again this historical effect
of insufficient interdependently synergetic web-spinning together
a healthier WinWin history/herstory
of ego/eco-normative
nature-spirit ZeroZones,
Universal mountains of suppressed affluent strength
Unitarian eco-valleys of depressed effluent flowing grace,

Deductively autonomous truth labels
Inductively not-interdependent/not-fragmented flow
of ambidextrously apathetic suppression of impassioned feelings

Competitive Either/Or
CoOperative Both/And
nondual co-arising networks of communion,
ComPassionately owned nutritional RightBrain sentience,

Although perhaps not quite so much LeftBrain
dominantly effective/affective sentences.

ReImaging history
re-employing fertile/stagnant qualities
re-deploying LeftDominant language
of RightWing over-reactionary capital-royalist apartheid
competitively bought and sold with an ego-defeating loss,
disinvesting oppressions,
repression walls,
depression webs

RePlaced by healthier
more ego/eco-therapeutic
LeftThought and RightFeeling positive non-platitudes
actively hopeful re-creative tensions
interdependently webbed, networked
images for binding positiveYang with negativeYin,
egalitarian double-binary binding
negative past personal/political effects
inviting more positive WinWin future health causes,
more opportunities for deeply and widely trusting democratic communion,
natural and spiritual,
polypathic HereNow
ZeroZone spacetime
4D co-relational integrity,

Growth of cooperative power opportunities
for owning compassionate freedom,
and not so much LoseLose politics of slavery
and walls
and anti-herstoric
patriarchal LeftBrain dominant privilege

To invest in writing
and publishing
and reading eight hundred pages
of cooperative freedom v competitively enslaving U.S. life
pro-healthy political regenerative voice,
speaking truth to degenerative commodified economic
anti-ecological death of a healthy
multicultural future climate opportunity,
historically declaring cooperative integrity life
or death of violent non-solidarity.




WhiteHouse Narcs

I’m hearing considerable chatter about patriarchal narcissism,
which is, indeed, absorbing and darkly fascinating;

But, I do wish we could invest at least twice as much energy
on analyzing climate therapeutic potential
of ecofeminist compassion,
re-synchronizing Time’s sacred-secular co-investments
re-combining healthy bicameral minds
re-linking wealthy co-passionate bodies,
and external.
