Changing Systems

I’m reading this book called
“Systems Thinking for Social Change”
by David Strom.

Although this is not his paradigm of systemic choice,
He talks about WinWin strategizing
for optimal outcomes
Rather than WinLose compromises
for suboptimal conservation
of the miserably under-performing status quo.

Future:
A. To strengthen partnerships,
clarify potential cooperative benefits
to both (all) parties.

Past:
B. Revisit OldBusiness issues
caused by both (all) sides,
whether unconsciously or otherwise–
like growing climate pathologies.

Present:
C. Develop bilateral (multilateral) WinWin solutions
to OldBusiness issues
in ways that optimize Future A,
above.

I can see where this might have been useful,
even therapeutic,
to consider before Civil Wars–
Perhaps even back when the U.S. Constitution
was in early democratic draft,
seeking to regenerate
a federated WinWin stage.

Future A:

SlaveOwners,
who always expect to have the first word;

Well,
I might see where a plantation
with cooperative ownership structure
might support a more cooperative management system
So, we could save our whips
for taking out thistles
and our cotton ropes
could return from making nooses
to drying clotheslines.
And, Saturday nights around a campfire
singing gospel
and jazz and blues
and dancing a jig or two
and maybe hearing some multicultural story telling too
might be more fun
than segregated Creation Stories
overpoweringly told
inside achingly empty
stifling Big White Houses.

Slaves–
We bring cultural
spiritual
natural experience
with WinWin tribal ownership structures,
and could revisit them as wiser and healthier
than being your way too personally oppressed ecopolitical property.
We also will support cooperative investment
for advancing mutually natural health
within spiritual wealth
plantation producing ego-
and consuming eco-
therapeutic optimization.

Past B:

SlaveOwners–
Sorry about past violent
capital acquisition history,
Rapacious and inhumane exploitation
predation
Lacking in all proper
unpigified human natural
and spiritual nurturing values.
We couldn’t see gratitude
positive integrity attitude
beyond our own white elitist WhiteHouse skin.

Slaves–
In restorative justice fire circles
lie pardon when properly asked
But also WinWin reparations,
egohealth
and stone-soup ecotherapies for all parties.

Present C:

Slaves–
See B above,
where ecotherapies include green matriarchal fire circles
of and for cooperative power celebrations,
wondrous sacraments.

SlaveOwners,
who always expect to have the last patriarchal word–
Welcome to our cooperative reforesting EcoSchool
and GreenPlantation Village,
Where we always grow and eat organic
and sometimes vegan,
and never miss a weekend FireCircle
because you never know
what might happen next
when ecofeminists get together
to play with ancient awesome fire-power–
warming systems for WinWin social change.

The DJ

The DJ plays wrong songs
for greens
and blues,
blacks and browns,
yellows
and dark wiselder matriarchal reds,
both natural
and spiritual
progressive parties too all-encompassing
to quickly disinvest
and octave ageless end.

DJ
never learned to dance outdoors
naked
or even organically half-dressed
to impress,

To ride RightMind waves
of cooperative
integral
holonic
MotherEarth primal relationship
revolving sacred DJ spin,
Earth’s harmonic resonating song.

DJ left MotherEarth
and sanctity behind
To buy Her up and app,
and inappropriately sell Her
to the highest patriarchal Pharisee bidder
buying passive market space
margins against Matriarchal resilient potential winner.

Quick gaming gains
deep darkly hidden chaos cash value
before environmental co-relationship
becomes an oxymoron
like capitalist healthy intelligence.

DJ learned his Ego
is his ZeroZone
with no remaining outdoor cherished vision
for realistic Rainbow ReStoring Warriors
replaying LP progressive folk tunes
and stand up EarthRooting improv
for midterm voters and investors
prepared to deeply listen
for outdoor health committed learning
democratic well-being constitution swearing
spinning greener DJs.

Great White Father

About those anti-BadNewsMedia rallies
while our SouthWest is burning
and while our SouthEast is flooding
and wet windstorm conflagrating,
feeling the flamed-up wrath
of an angry EarthGoddess,

Why do you plant and nurture hate
and anger
against potential WinWin integral communicators?

Did it not once occur to you
to wonder why you chose to be elected
in this climate precarious time?

Why are you like BadNews zealously mendacious Saul
when we so obviously need a more integrated St. Paul?
Filled and overflowing with healthy integrity,
Holy Matriarchal Spirit-Nature.

Your mockery
and tongue-lashing
and transparent ego-promotion
will not help one child
recall what a great job you did
while made in U.S. of A. family homes
and forests are burning
longer and stronger
every devolutionary decade.

Your egotism
and anthropocentrism
further inflame climate disasters
and absence of accessible health care,
cooperatively given as received,
and healthy wealth of economic and politically reasonable reassurance
that, together,
as a healthy bicameral democracy,
we can rebuild this co-dominating
co-operative constitutional
integrity we so redemptively WinWin need

We need to gather to heal Earth’s climates,
not to destroy them
with bad attitude and vilifying pathologies
rather than gratitude and health-wealth celebrations
to restore justice and invite cooperatively owned peace
into ego/eco-centered green health hearts
and wealth societies
reforesting our WinLose deserts,

Revolve
resolve our storming desserts
for past hubris
of Great White Fathers
demanding missionary colonization
inflaming idolatrous hate
rather than inviting
our seas to still
our surviving trees to witness our worship.

One difference between you
and Barack Hussein
I notice you never mention:

You look at historical outcomes
for nature/spirit WinWin Native Americans
and gleefully declare
“They lost!”
Barack recalls those same disempowering outcomes
and sadly, yet more patriotically, notes
“We all lost.”

I wonder if the burning homes
and trees
can hear that terrifying empathic difference
for future integrity
of a mental and physical
mind and body
spiritual and natural healthy democracy.

Trade Wars

Authoritarian DonaldJohn
authoritatively, yet irresponsibly,
declares the U.S. has the worst trade deal
in all of colonizing history.

I suppose
under his free autocratic authority
to re-interpret historic wealth
we were better off
exporting domestic booze and guns
in exchange for domesticated slaves.

Those good old GoldenRulership days
when only white male trader lives
authoritatively mattered.

Reminders
The opposite of historical integrity
is cultural mendacity

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.
