Kleptocracy

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.

Pursuing Democratic Health

Democratic pursuits of healthy constitutions
and health policy discipline
are often associated with growing compassion,
enlightenment values
for well-being and happiness,

And peace and happiness, in turn,
associated with prosperity, both natural and spiritual wealth,
never one without the other.

This historical association includes integral global prosperity
hoped for during the Great Enlightenment
climaxing during the 1700s
as our democratic spirited
and natured USA was busy being born.

Health, like wealth,
can be measured in quantities compared across time,
sometimes trending bigger and more robust
and sometimes sadly smaller and more stagnant,

But, health, as wealth, also feels warm flowing
in effluent rivers and root nutritional systemic qualities
of multilateral WinWin positive compassion,
tossed back and forth in everyday discourse,
through LoseLose negative ego-mania
echoing cognitive silos of dissonance.

Personal health, like wealth,
prosperity of happiness and warm nests,
can be thought about as short-term
sufficiency for each moment composing one lifetime,

Or more long-term confluence,
multi-regenerational,
mother’s warm womb to daughter to grandmother’s womb,
back and forth through time
remembered and projected healthy wealth
into our co-passioned nutritional future.

Global democratic health,
like self-governing compassionate wealth,
can be measured in cooperative quantities of lifespans
and consumer market potential
compared to productive efficiency
measured against cost of labor
and materials
and energy consumed/produced,
and pollution
and waste,
compared against Win/Lose inefficient competitions
and Lose/Lose energy resources
of ecological/economic global failure,
and waste,
and contrasted to Win/Win co-investing compassion trends.

Earth’s health, like wealth,
can become more synergetically understood
as qualities of multicultural integrity,
flow,
growing robustly effluent,
affluent nutritional depth, width,
buoyancy, multicultural beauty
speaking polypathic truth to monocultural predation,
degradation from Paradise potential
degenerating to WeedPatch mendacity,
hypocrisy,
lunacy,
rabidity
of narcissistic fear-mongering
twittering
while treating Earth as though a personal AntiGolden Ruled Toilet,
garbage disposal

A rabid rat’s nest
rewriting Golden HealthRule democratic constitutions
to best serve northern
and western white patriarchal monoculturing degenerators
of military industrialized hate and threat commodity climates
growing personally
and politically
and economically
and socially unhealthy
and psychologically unwealthy
and way anti-democratic unwise,

Anti-healthy wealth of white male privilege
dispassionately apathetic toward healthy quantities
and wealthy matriarchal flowing qualities.

Cultural Pathology

Nationalism,
nation supremacy,
rooted in competing patriarchal capital rivalries,
is entirely incompatible with EarthPatriotism
rooted in loyalty to cooperatively healthy matriotism

Wherever MotherEarth may yet be healthy climate rediscovered
in sensory input and outputs of a child
unbound breathing in enculturing good humor

Still fully awake
meaning much more than not yet dead,

Embracing Earth’s Paradise found
still means far more than ending homelessness,
bareness,
hopelessness,

For cooperative peace
more than competing retributive-avoidance models
for justice as fee and loss of freedom punishments
while preaching skills in anger and depression management.

Competition in nationalism,
whether white
against pink,
royalist
against feminist,
even green
against black and brown prejudice,
each autonomously anti-ecological
when we simmer down
into non-violent communication
of spatial Here
with temporal Now,

Competing nation-states
miss golden global opportunities
to embrace healthier polycultural outcomes
of multicultural cooperative grace,
polypathic WinWin karma,
polyphonic musing face
in AnimaMundi well-timed expansive souls
revolving space

A healthy organic way to speak
and think
and feel as a child
is to embrace WinWin co-redeeming ecopolitics.

Violent competitions,
mutual abuse and neglect,
between ZeroZone sacred nations
are antithetical to cooperative conversations,
planning and development,
in EarthTribe non-violent WinWin communication

CoArising nighttime dreamscape melodies,
non-conspiring feeling peacefully immunized
against conspiracy theories
playing WinLose roles
embracing evolutionary predative jihad anxieties,
risks to bully or become bullied by chaotic capital climates
and internal bicameral storms,
nightmare feelings nauseously disassociating inside from outside,
ego against eco,
concave overbearing convex,
ZeroZone soul ignoring OneZone body’s primal needs and feelings,
Right bipolar conflicting Left,
AnimaMundi HealthIntegrity
dipolar co-reflecting 4-SpaceTime Revolutionary Universe–
opaquely expanding splendor.

Viciously Virtuous Cycles

Like cooperatives explicitly known
and felt,
most virtuous circle systems
love meaningful ecological theology,
a WinWin reiteratively continuous choice
grows political democratic
tit=tat resilience into multicultural perpetuity,
whether virtuous ego inside
and/or eco-habitat therapeutic outside.

Like implicit competitions,
not not corollaries make most vicious
LoseLose degenerative non-choices toward WinWin,
prejudicial leaning toward
inside ego-economic priority
over outside green theological opportunity,
continues stuck in pathological violent nihilism,
dissonant absence of resilience,
ego-inside rabid
as climate pathological revenge,
for anti-ecological LoseLose reactionary ecopolitical choices
militaristic
growing short-tempered mendaciously rabid
LeftBrain dominant expedience

Secular vicious cycles
pursue wealthy growth
to autonomously achieve fleeting desperate health,
before deficit played-out absence
of further future expiration dates
predicting Earth’s pulselessness–
attenuated rootlessness

Sacred virtuous long-rooted recyclers
pursue ecotherapeutic healthy memories
of more nutritiously wealthy forests,
wild undomesticated RightBrain sacred spaces

To cooperatively achieve resiliently balanced
multicultural theology of meaning
ego-green wealth
pursuing ultra-nonviolent Tit health
for ultra-violet Tattling wealth…

Long-term cooperative virtues
absorbing short-term viciousness

EcoTherapy
absorbing EgoRabid Virality

Integrity
absorbing Dementia

Yin
absorbing Yang

Like cooperative cytosine
absorbing autonomous uracil.

is what can follow manic fast-growth regeneration,
if you’re not well-seasoned.

can come from tribal competitions,
peace and freedom fighting and squabbling
for healthy food and water and fuel,
if you’re not co-empathic enough,

restorative co-messiahs,
bodhisattvas,
eco-yogis
noticing and stretching
designing and cooperatively networking,

Hate and anger and fear
are what can come from love and faith and hope,
if we’re not health care receivers enough,
and cooperative givers-forward,
co-investors of and for HealthCare,
filling toward CareFull with Humble Gratitude,
both Ego-Eco Logists
Logos of health systemic trends,
as contrasted against
social and ecopolitical and personal Loser NonElite pathologies.

Zealous fundamentalism
is what can come from counter-cultural radicalism,
if you’re not listening to karmic grace
multiculturally enough.

Fascism
is what can come from NonElite exclusionary democracy
if you’re not grateful for WinWin creolizing therapies
and humble about past retributive colonizing traumas
enough.

Jihad terrorism
is what can come from too-divinely supremacist inspired
retributive injustice
if we are not HealthCare ecologically inclusive enough.

Holocaust
is what can come from Paradise Lost
if we are not listening cooperatively enough
to both internal landscapes
and external climates for ecological health.

LeftBrain Burnout
is what can come of SacredElder RightBrain inspired
