Tocqueville Talk

Patrick Deneen follows Tocqueville
speaking of risks to Western liberal democratic experiments,
great personal enlightenment adventures
seldom calm within a federating kettle
of competing selected fish,
and usually not cooperatively resilient
for health optimization
of local community peaceful resonant wealth.

In Tocqueville’s time and place,
liberal democracy evolved from feudal win/lose pre-industrial aristocracy
overpowering non-elite serfs, and lesser natural organic beings,
royal kleptocrats,
universal white privileged patriarchs
by right of land and title inheritance
supported by Divine Might Makes Right
evolutionary theologies.

As Deneen liberally repeats,
capital-invested democratic consumer legitimacy
to cooperatively contract individually manifest
humane superior spiritualized dignity
is rooted in monocultural presentism,
fragmenting mono-generational cultural contracts
with multi-regenerational fields
and nutritional species
mellow meadows
robust mountains
and calm river valleys.

Where Divine covenants
signed, sealed, and delivered
to predator Aristocrats
were rooted in creeds
Divinely inspired scriptures,
holy creation stories
sacred pre-historic memories,
usually of patriarchal governors
and their court-appointed entertainers,
fire-circle dancers
loyal soldiers
and oral legend-tellers,

Presentism fragments intergenerational liturgical-nutritional commitments,
argues Tocqueville,
repeats Deneen.

Yet liberal love integrates compassion
for all Earth’s regenerative/degenerative species
verbally historic and non-verbally pre-historic
patriarchal and matriarchal
deduced and induced
Divine EarthMother co-passion
multiculturally articulate co-enlightenment covenants
through cooperative win/win listening Time

Sacredly interdependent
traditionally nondual resilience
of Taoistic co-relational covenants

Indigenously spiraling
precessive/recessive iconic
dialogical EarthTime’s win/win sanctuary, ergodic.

Patrick Deneen follows Tocqueville
speaking of risks
and appositionally implied opportunities
for Western/Eastern liberal democratic experiments,
great personal North/South enlightenment adventures
seldom calm within a federating creolizing kettle
of competing win/lose
yet cooperatively win/win selected fish
swimming through climate surfing risks.


Organic EcoSystems

You are an organic system,
or you would not be capable of reading this,
much less reflecting upon its possible merit
for integrity with your own organic
networking experience,
real and as yet unrealized.

Families are systems,
functional and
Which may feel chaotic from inside sensory information,
which may be what physicists would theoretically outside,
from above, see
and not hear or feel or sense
as entropic failure,
absence of actively organized
self-perpetuating interdependent capacity
for networking,

Rivers and mountains are systems.
All of Earth together
networks our prime relational creation
and re-creation system
of complex,
hopefully not too climate chaotic,

internal quasi-autonomous ego systems
swimming and floating
among external multiculturing ecosystems,
are strategically resilient
when robustly healthy,
internally secure (yet not entropic, dead),
externally free
to win/win communicate,
system to co-passionate meta-system

Preferably reiterating affective
and effective dialogue
about non-violent historical
and contemporary interrelationships
in sacred Earth ecospace

And throughout divinely inspired co-relational time
bilaterally divine/humane implied,
binomially explicating ego/eco-metric,
bicamerally communicating
strong-flowing resilience
to restore Earth’s patriotic
ecosystemic fullness
calm integral health
of co-passionate multiculturing wealth
through reverse-hierarchical
organic networks of sensory win/win nutrition
interrelationships resonant with all of sensory-systemic time,
future and past,
resilient within Earth’s ecosystemic planetary space,
naturally here
and spiritual systemic integrity
now co-passioning co-present
divinely eco-privileged liberty of love.

If you were not a liberally interconnected
and yet securely quasi-autonomous organic system,
you would not be capable of reading
and appreciating
and standing
and feeling
and reflecting within this ecosystem
of resilient integrity,
fluid solidarity.


Changing Thought Systems

It is known throughout Earth’s anonymous
unanimous Commons,
Systems are hard to change.

The more macro-competitive,
The more difficult of all conversion stories

Over pernicious decades,
We tend to add “isms”
to pathological ends
of these global systemic issues.

This polyculturalistic/multiculturalism suffix,
negative appendage,
suggests a pejorative problem
of systemistic stuckness,
where once may have lived
a potential for positive
polypathic and polyphonic change
toward Earth’s greener,
more flexible,

Ism labels warn of possible toxic contents
including racism,
of course,
and white privileged patriarchalism.

These two appear to be old friends,
as do colonialism
and Catholicism
and globalism
and monotheism,
often hiding diverse and sundry mob-rule
in sinister shapes
of secular poly-tickle-listic hyphenated atheism.

Other systemic cousins
on my networking mind
are liberalism
and capitalism
and communism
and socialism
and fundamentalism
and dualism,
separating spiritual development opportunities
from natural undevelopment risks.

Sometimes, though,
usually when I am not in crisis
but feeling emotionally vulnerable anyway,
I wonder if these impenetrable global
and nationalistic
systemic issues could call out
and in
for healthier cooperative thinking.

Not a direct assault on,
most certainly not a war against,
exterior competing systems,
But a more indirect dialogue
inviting a change in individual
and familial
and indigenous communal thinking
about win/win systems.

This cooperative bilateral thinking
scientists have labeled systemic thinking
and multicultural artists have seen and heard
smelled and tasted
touched and felt
sung and danced
as Earth ecosystemic feeling of interdependent living

integral journeys toward global meta-systemic utopia,
where naturally perfect systems thinking
syncs with
spiritually pure communion feeling.

For example,
patriarchalism becomes,
in this explicit in-between double-bounded way,
not only a chronic risk to Earth’s survival
but also an immediate everyday opportunity
to imagine aloud,
to touch with voice and hand,
to walk boldly, sometimes baldly, with feet and mind

Into a ZeroCore place
where two or more overpowering competitive Yangisms
might change evolutionary to revolutionary directions,

Directions revolutionary to evolutionary change might
grow toward one or less
matriarchal cooperative ZeroZone
of Yinistic integrity
for rebirthing regenerational
resonant happiness,
healthier nests,
wealthier eggs,

Synergetic seeds, all about potentiating possibilities
bilateral-fractal DNA discernment systems
thinking about what we are more health-cooperatively feeling

Change for wealthier harmonic becoming ecofeminist
less patriarchal,
so more yang-enthusiastically matriarchal.

Within these boundaries of vulnerable dialogue,
what have appeared to be static constipationisms,
mutual opportunistic issues,
also feel unveiled yin-flow nutritionistic
toward cooperatively appositional opportunities
to feel internal spiritual transactions,

into natural potentialistic,
not so much transcendently spiritualized isms,

Instead, macro-global systems
of Yang’s golden meta-health network
polypaths traveled,
Polyphonically felt absence
of perennially unfree spiritualisms,
primarily and primally due to a collective change of nutritional thinking
in systems growing healthier.

Cooperatively realistic lives
more powerful than competitive unreal estateisms,
acquired ownership of ismic properties
impregnably fragmented plots
and states of suspiciously marginal boundaries

By left-brain dominant apartheid thoughts
overpowering right-brain co-prominent organic nurture-systems
touching realistic baptismal waters plenty warm
and not yet boiling over power.

More transystemically webbed
natural spirits
than monoculturally walled

Nature against
co-passioned spirits
with ecological/theological integrity
changing meta-thought systems
felt as holistic networks for well-being.


Are You Still Talking?

Said Liberal Left
to Conserving Integral Right,
I’m not sure why
yet you still treat win/win progressive cooperative opportunities
as if hiding a covert coven risk
of loose
loser LeftWing evil conspiring ecofeminists
struggling within a strictly secular political agenda box
of anti-white privileged patriarchy.

Said Integral Right,
to Liberal Left,
We’re still working together.
Sparring maybe,
but not really boxing,
I seem to golden shadow hear,
our reweaving seasoned win health
win wealth
secular left
sacred right cooperative
co-governing hope.

Responds Liberal Left
to Integral Right,
I thought you all were invested
in capital infestment monopoly players
in Right makes Might nationalistic Paradise,
autonomous LeftBrain RightWing win
to lose LeftWing
not ZeroSum polyculturing prominence.

CoResponds Integral Right win/win ZeroZone,
multiculturing dominance
to, and with, Liberal Left,
We sound,
to me,
in harmony.

Progressive conservants
prefer to divest of anthro-history’s
ClimateHealth kleptocracy
of inhumane toxic un-naturality.

We might depolarize today
providing a new old-designing win/win cooperatively graced day
yet not quite so much LeftBrain dominant
plowing win/lose through right of might
bipolar rutted debate paths
and sluggish streams of struggling semi-consciousness.

Said Liberal secular Left
back with Integral sacred Right,
Instead of win/lose business as usual,
we might together uncover
what we can only together rediscover
in-between renewing healthy climates,

EgoLeft inside
and EcoRight extending synergetically outside,
Reweaving win health to win wealth cooperative
co-passionate re-investments
of wealth forms
and organic health functions
in history and future herstoric restories
of culture and religion,
of deduction and induction of cognitive and emotive,
reductive fragmenting theories
and inductive fragments of climate integrity,

When yang loves not-not yin
interdependently win/win
balances health-soul inside
as wealth-nature outside
once again
polynomially languaged
and enumerated

Polypathically not only secular,
not only sacred,

Said Liberal Left speakers
while Integral Right co-passionately listened
for healthier multicultural consciousness,
pro-matriarchy patriarchy courageously felt
transparently heard

…of cats in here/now shadow boxes
extending timeless ZeroZone mortality
of identity ecopolitics
of overheated dogs in there/then races
back through not not ZeroSum…

Said Liberal Left secularizing mouth
to Integral Right sacred polyphonic ears.


Mixed Taxed and UnTaxed Blessings

Those of us
who have had guilty pleasures
of owning valuable property,
like a car
and rental property
and office equipment

Office buildings,
solar inverters,
and nuclear holocaust delivery systems
but not MBA degrees
or intellectual property
or more privately owned emotional properties,

Those of us
who know the mixed blessings
of owning organic and mechanical fragments
of climate pathologized,
yet still breathing, planet Earth,
especially if taxable property,
have heard about depreciation of values
over their natural/mechanical life/utility time.

We might recall
depreciation of property value
decelerates gradually over time,
barring any unfortunate head-on accidents,
flying and melting and fragmenting damage,
accelerating astronomical crises
eliminating long-term realistic health-wealth values.
Depreciated suddenly to total loss of asset value,
now a global junk-dealer liability.

just as depreciation decelerates over time,
appreciation accelerates resilience
with time’s enduring health/wealth cooperative life-experience,

Organic systems accelerate robust cooperative integrity
over a deep learning nutritious multiculturing life-time
of Win/Win

Growing in good-humored co-investment priorities
for story telling and listening
to Win/Win co-opportunities

Rather than continuing historic depreciated taking
and Win/Lose epic slow-losing ego/economic depressions,

Anti-systemic pathologies,
realistic predictions of global chaos.

Retributive injustice depreciations
slowly fade toward entropic disorganization
just the restorative opposite
of appreciative Win/Win compassion

Explicitly conscious
of living interdependently between and within
autonomously natural depreciative law
and polypathic open-systemic/spiritual
yang/yin multicultural
left/right psychological
self/other empowering
deep and wide learning order.


Dubious Differences

What is the difference between a Rescuer
and a Facilitator?
A codependent
and a resilient health-enabler?

If we insist we must have at least one,
What is a difference
between a pan-sectarian Messiah/Bodhisattva,
a co-inviter into health-fertile mutual service
And, a compassioned co-facilitator,
an eco/ego-therapist,
An Other/Self-cooperative healer?

As for the first,
I look for a distinction,
unconscious or not,
between LeftEgo’s self-dominant intent
for internal wealth-serving service,
growing more fame and less infamy,
more adoration and less apathy,
self-rescuing from an anonymous pit
of unprominent history;

On the other hand,
the Facilitator is an equal opportunity rescuer
for both Ego and Ego’s healthy EcoHabitat,
including planet,
animals and plants and people,
foreign forests and HereNow complex technocratic cities,
far away deserts and internal oceans of motion,
former golden days and still perpetual nights,
past nutrition and future health,
ancient tribes and future families.

As for differences
between sacred CoMessiahs
and eco-over-ego secular therapists,
perhaps the difference between an integral spirit of abundant faith
and a robust soul for healthy and humble HereNow agnosticism,
like John Rawls’ vulnerable veil of self/other unknowing,
perhaps this is one of those distinctions between metaphysical identities
without a RealTime physical nature difference,

The dubious difference between non-violent sacred communication
and enthymematic,
secular co-passionate discernment,
between LeftBrain active hope
for future cooperative healthy-wealth understanding,
and RightBrain historical faith
in ancient wealthy-health tribal experience

DNA’s secular/sacred nonsectarian history
of rescuing ourselves
from dubious
unhealthy differences.

What’s the difference between what’s metaphysically uplifting
and what’s physically integral,

Maybe both are heavier
and one promises to co-arise lighter?
