DeMerited Privilege

Some people
see reverse racism
as justified by genetic meritocracy
and historical seniority of sacred monocultural grace
not quite so generously bestowed
as one might more paradise
have multiculturally hoped.

So, some people
see affirmative action
as too liberal with love
too affirming reactionary.

So, some people
see assertive responsiveness
as PositivEnergy ecofeminist reply
to reverse racism
and sexism
and anthro-patriotic nationalistic supremacism.

So, some people
see anthro-supremacism
as RightWinged
patriarchal RedMeat.

So, some people
see patriarchalism
as red-faced egocentrism,
longing to rebelong
in green Paradise days
of GoodNews scriptured Olde.

So, some people
see xenophobia,
reverse ecological
and political empowering face
of rabid LeftBrain egocentrism,
and RightBrain racism
and sexism
and anthro homophobicism

So, some people
fake homo sapien
eco-resonant WiseElder minds
with ego-resilient bodies–
inside spiritual climate health
without regenerative outside natured wealth.

Transparency

If I were not a GAY white male
living in the USA,
I wonder if I would have grown my LeftBrain up
to so easily hear
Donald John as Head Pharisee
for privileged religiously-held Nationalism–
a totalitarian fake-idol
substituting fake-patriotic raptures
against sacred polyculturing outcomes
for all multiculturing
underprivileged creolizing
natural agnostic and spiritual religious Cultures.

Susan Werner asks
“If God is good
and God is great,
Why is your heaven so small?”

If USA is good,
right or wrong, and
If USA is patriotically great,
loyal to democratic principles of active healthy cooperation
and therefore morally divine,
Why is your current CEO Pharisee of Privilege
so egotistically small,
so badnews mendaciously tiny,
rather than globally sacred
ecologically Great Transitioning
toward restoring climates of polypathic healthy wealth?

If God’s timeless polyphonic Paradise
is too narrow,
too spiritually elitist,
for those of us naturally and/or spiritually underprivileged
victims of Trumpian Win/Lose privileged Rapture smallness,
then how sure are you
you have never had a queerly unorthodox sensual thought?
A flicker of sacred matriarchal woundedness?
A flash of natural wet warm wombishness?
An addictive glimmer of longing to reassociate
with sacred Virginal MotherEarth?

How sure are you of not preferring
innocent transgender lily love for each NewDawn–
Raptures in and of NonViolent Revolutionary Fields?

If we cannot recover
some active multicultural hope of landing together
in God’s jealously occupied
and punishingly withheld Paradise,
if only to avoid monoculturing risks
of hellfire’s sweeping overpopulated damnation
for timeless eternity
of Here with Decomposing/Recomposing Now,
perhaps it is time to recall
Jesus’s God of Love,
WinWin Grace,
restorative ego-ecological
co-messianic
co-operative SpiritNatures,
secular Ego with sacred Eco ZeroZone
nondually co-arising
rapturous WinWin healing.

Transparent secular/sacred ecopolitical vocations
as eco-ministers reforesting wounded Earth
to heal internal addictions to multiculturing Love.

Predators

My older sister,
now in her early seventies,
which was about the last time
she enjoyed a new idea,
in the early 70s, possibly earlier,
I would guess…

She moved to white middle-class
Republican Texas,
with aging Texas sized unresolved adolescent issues,
not too long
after dropping out of Bob Jones University,
southern capital of all-white evangelical anti-Christian racism,
which had fallen prey to unfiltered privilege
of Republican Pharisees,
BadNews for all non-white
non-straight
polycultural ecofeminist Aliens,
therefore not authentically heterosexual white Jesus lovers,
or something patriarchal like that.

Anyway,
a few years ago
I let her know
I had recently been invaded,
not by a goodnews Hetero-Revival,
but by HIVirus.

HI!
I’m Positive.
Don’t pass it on.
Keep me to your loser self.

She emailed me back:
How do you feel about your choices
now?

A few years later
a hurricane went through Texas
and her gated community flooded
resulting in new front porch vistas
of alligators or crocodiles
or whatever Texans have down there,

besides angry straight white privileged Republicans
and Johnson Democrats of suspicious color
and green ecopolitical WinWin persuasions,

swimming upstream
hunting for white-meat prey.

I emailed my sister back,
How do you feel
about your choices
now?

Have not yet heard back.

Wendell Berry’s Boutique

Organic
zero-waste stream
permaculturally designed
and cooperatively owned
farms
are no more or less Democratic-Boutique ecopolitics

Than AgriBusiness
extractive anti-ecological
rather than restorative-ecosystemic therapy,
competitively owned
and Business as Usual capitalist-colonizing designed
multinational conglomerates of anthro-hubris greed,
are no more or less Totalitarian Universal Supremacist ecopolitics.

I heard a young woman farmer
raising grass-fed cattle
on her small organic farm
designed to restore health to Southern
RedState topsoil,
as well as to her kids’ kids,
future farmers of Postmillennial America.

She believed the small scale
of her natural-spiritual restorative farming economy
placed her at a disadvantage
to receive government operational loans
as compared to multinational agribusiness conglomerates
using chemicals and pesticides
to kill topsoil
and extract short-term nutritional values
at long-term disinvested cost
to future healthy generations
and their dreams to health-wealth thrive.

A government farm subsidy expert responded:

If we don’t have enough capital to loan to everyone,
we are forced to give priority funding
to larger scale producers
with capacity to provide more than sufficient this-year nutrients
for our large domestic and foreign flooding markets.

She did not mention costs of growing obesity
and simultaneous malnutrition,
dual-poignant trends.

She did add,
The agricultural sector is complex,
composed of large agribusinesses
and small boutique operations,
and all are welcome by UncleDonald to apply,
after first saluting the TrumpTowers,

But she left unchallenged
the Farmer’s original matriotic complaint
of an uneven ecopolitical playing field
that actually favors large patriarchal corporate greed operations
invested in toxic
extractive
farming-as-raping sociopathic practices.

As I was listening to the farm subsidy expert
on competitive economics
make her case for giving separate but
only marginally unequal value
to these diverse nutritional scales,
small and more robustly large,
with distinct investment niches
available for public dollar support
of a presumably synergetic-democratic agricultural department,
without conceding undue favor to AgriBusiness multinationals.

Separatists, yes;
Supremacists for BusinessAsUsual, no.

I was starkly reminded
of an OldSchool KKK spokesman
who last year said
the WhiteBrother Klans are racial separatists
but not WhiteMale Supremacists.

It does feel like a pathological distinction
without a healthy,
non-WhiteWashed, difference
for present
or future lives
of and for thriving nutritional diversity,
deep sacred-secular ecological synergy.

When will pre-millennial threats
ever learn how to hear post-millennial therapies
as other than Boutiquely Synergetic?

I know…
I know!…
When we have to grow together
rather than continue failing apart.

Defining Trumpism

Let’s talk today about Trumpism.

If this is a new word,
how is it different and the same as
Fascism?

Who is a Trumpian
more than a Republican?
Or do these two labels
show the same angry face
about a Crippled America
to you?

I see U.S. Trumpians
more likely to identify themselves as evangelical Christians
than as racists
and fascists
and sexists
and homophobes,
yet so afraid of the secularizing powers
of non-evangelical nonChristians
that they support racism
and fascist monoculturing nationalistic
and fake-patriotic
and fake-pietistic religiosity,
without thought of hypocrisy,
avoiding this walk of co-messianic suffering civil service
for all God’s EarthBound Sacred Creation.

I see U.S. Trumpians
as fascists waiting in fundamentalist befuddledness,
inadvertently secularizing the patriarchal-dominant RightWing
respect for Elite Pharisee Lives
more than Sacred NonElite in HolySpirit collaterally damaged
just war deaths.
Probably not what Jesus had in mind
for his One AnimaMundi Body.

Made First in UJSA
by rabidly competing LeftBrain Yang dominant supremacists
fueled by fake histories
and FakePiety Stories
substituting for healthier
and classier
Creation Stories,
U.S. Trumpians remain infested with yin-suppressive
retributive WinLose anger
and rage
and PTSD rabid justifications
for global absence of RightBrain’s
Traditionally Orthodox
sacred eco-consciousness
of AnimaMundi interdependence,
regenerativity of democratizing health
morally and aesthetically preferable
to degenerativity of colonizing pathologies,
the ecopolitics of over-populated pirates,
and not quite so much Suffering Public Service.

Meanwhile post-millennial Elder SacredRight mindbodies
steadfastly remain built of nature-spirit nutritional health
reminding us of Golden Rule and Ratio and Elixir
Democratic EcoPolitical WinWin
Ancient CoArising Trusts

Great transitional loves,
Wondrous ways,
Awesome truths,
Regenerative lives
restoring AnimaMundi
ego-ecosystemic justice,
within as without

Non-violently restoring peace
actively implementing self with other cooperative governance.

Democratic governance
complying with divinely-inspired
and also secularly enlightened humane
Original Democratic Creolizing Intent.

YangPatriarchal-YinMatriarchal
Ego-EcoSystemic equivalent
notnot SacredZen Zero,
if I’m adding that up left-right rooted.

I think we need ProEcological Economic Schools
and Tao balancing parents,
mentors teaching ego-ecoconscious development
speaking,
listening to co-arising AnimaMundi
as Sacred ElderRight times
for establishing revolutionary multicultural democratic forms,
forums,
formal frames,
functions,
flows,
fertility,
fecundity
and cooperative polypathic ownership practices

Allowing
inviting
gracing
equitably integrating
synergetic humane-divine
secular-sacred maturation of this species
of nature-spirit
co-arising LeftYang-RightYin
Ego-Eco restorative justice
for Holy Bicameral Balancing Spirits

Kind of Gaian Polypathic Left as Polyphonic Right,
if you know what we mean together,
co-arising future Sacred WiseElder mentors
teachers,
preachers,
parents,
public co-messianic servants,
Bodhisattva ReStoration Warriors
of and for EgoEco Justice.

All of which doesn’t look like
emerging RightWing Trumpian Fascism.

Or sound like monoculturing nationalistic supremacy.

Or even smell like healthy green-blue AnimaMundi.

I know what you mean.
It smells too Red to me,
too hot,
too warming climates
and pathological landscapes
of dissonant dismay;
lack of commitment to health care,
mental health care,
climate health care,
economic health care,
because anti-ecological lack of AnimaMundi
sacred caregiving and receiving.

Prisons

Prisons,
like slavery,
and economic and political prostitution,
are rooted in unfortunate histories
of criminal choices.

Criminal behaviors
are rooted in revenge
and fear
and anger
and insanely aggressive feelings
of entitlement,
bad faiths in superior wants and isolating needs.

Retaliation
is rooted in blame.

Blame
is rooted in guilt.

Guilt
is rooted in shame.

Shame
is rooted in insufficiency,
poverty,
feelings of marginal value,
remedial weaknesses.

Lack of value
for healthy life,
for all lives,
is rooted in circles of perpetual retribution
for lack of cooperative integrity.

Lack of spiraling integrity
is rooted in tolerance for habitual failures
to love sufficiently,
publicly and privately,
socially and personally,
naturally and spiritually.

Failures of love
are rooted in abundance of memorized terror.

Terror
is rooted in histories of trauma.

Trauma
is rooted in lack of restorative therapy.

Lack of effective, necessary, sufficient, optimizing therapies
is rooted in prisons
viewed as fitting resolutions for others’ crimes
rather than criminalizing problems
personal and public sufferings,
loss,
failures of sufficient social integrity.

Telling Stories

While there is no story at all
unless it has at least two sides,
when it comes to ego’s narrative lines
and epic paragraphs,
we have great difficulty in casting ourselves
as other than a one-sided protagonist story,
which others might see as including too much self-indulgent glory.

Winona LaDuke
tells a worship story of the Anishinaabe
defending their sacred home
with support from the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,
against further mining investments of commodifying Earth antagonists,
represented by the State of Michigan.

This story is about copper mining investors
against people who worship Earth
as sacred Habitat,
Elders of one EarthTribe extending family,
across species,
and back across first dawn of Time.

You have already guessed who is winning.

Why is that?
The quality of our spiritual and ecologically healthy lives
depends on questions
challenging competitive one-sided empowerment assumptions.

But, you are right, I suspect,
if you guessed that both sides are losing.

The RepublicanRuling White evangelical Christian
State of Michigan
ruled against the Anishinaabe
and against their own sacred Scripture
and spiritual experience.
Water and land, they say,
cannot be sacred,
cannot have spiritual development significance
and deep and rich and wide meaning
because a protected place of worship
must be inside a building.

I don’t have a PhD in King James Bible Studies,
but I do have a Master of Divinity degree
from a duly licensed
and officially accredited Christian seminary
in the U.S.
and I’m fairly sure I remember
Christian Worship takes place,
rather uniquely,
in human hearts and minds and bodies,
wherever they might happen to be located
in space and time,
inside, maybe, but, for many,
preferably outside.
Most of the history in the Bible
is outside worship history.

Surely gardens were Eden’s first cathedrals.
Why would the State of Michigan pretend otherwise?

Why would KingJames Bible thumpers
and HellFire prophets,
patriarchal evangelists
and patriotic disciples of God’s omnipresent Love
allow their regulators and legislators
and executives,
acting in their HolyScriptures name,
tolerate such a clear misrepresentation of worship
as taught and lived by JesusChrist,
pretty much outside
and especially sweating blood in gardens
and walking on sacred water?

Why accept such an absurd misconception of worship
without economic or political
or personal or vulnerable question
this is patently absurd one-sided stealing
for money-making redistribution purposes
from spiritually rich to feed toxic desecration
to all residents of Michigan
and Lake Superior
and Turtle Island.

Absurd to confine worship indoors
to anyone
from anywhere
who has had the natural-spiritual experience
of being born
from any sacred matriotic womb
of God’s EarthTribes.

Intolerable rape of Truth
to any healthy Christian
with opportunities
to worship outdoors
while reading Psalms
and Proverbs
and natural-spiritual Sacred Parables
about harvesting grace
planted in seeds of divine gratuity.

What is truly healthy faith
within our buildings of worship
is merely a pale reflection
of truly spiritual experience
derived long before we built buildings
as defensive shelters
against sacred elements
of MotherEarth.

I have known authentically patriotic Christians
to find more freedom worshiping God
on sacred rocks
born of spirited Lake Superiors
as compared to claustrophobia while boxed up inside
binding fear and threat constraints
of evangelically booming buildings
and fundamental absence of spiritual discernment constraints.

Worship, like Wonder,
looks for God’s ReStorative Justice and Peace,
to let go of stuckness
in Retributive Vengeance is DivinePower
over Lake Superior commodification issues
about who and what and where
is most biblically saved
after God’s Word
has spoken first and last outdoor spiritual experiences,
voices of Earth’s sacred natures
and divinely-inspired Great Spirits.
