Restoring Inside Justice

Healing Win/Lose EgoNomial Intent

We belong together
Through all kinds of colonizing corporate weather,
We belong creolizing together.

So sings my mitochondrial DNA
when I listen deeply
to all prior matriarchal regenerations
speaking in still
soft
timeless win/win voices

Especially about polycultural outcome opportunities
and monocultural injustice
incoming risks.

I am obsessed with anxiety about climate change.
I own this disability to feel safe
sufficiently secure
to feel confident my granddaughter
will live on a healthier Earth,
will live in a wealthier bicameral empowering situation,
will live for a more cooperative win healthy ecology
to win a truly wealthy
resilient domestic economy.

I’m meeting with some folks from an Episcopal Church
inspired by St. James,
sons of the Lesser Alphaeus
and Greater Zebedee
and James the Just
we could matriarchally say,
and an All Souls UniveralYang
UnitarianYin
BiCamerally Liberal ReAssociation.

All folks who share some concern with Adam Robersmith,
about how we might engage each other
to “Cherish Our World:
Avoiding Despair
in Environmental Justice Work.”
(in “Justice On Earth,” Skinner House Books, p. 47)

My RightBrain ear was listening
with those voices from past generations
speaking in present mitochondrial matriarch-restoring voices
to reassure us of timeless compassion
for EarthTribe’s wealthiest ecofeminist future.

Robersmith: “Watching the public debates about climate change is an exercise in resistance.”

The GrandMothers: Listening to internal dialogue
with changing win/lose climates
actively creolizes resonance.

Robersmith: “It involves a resistance to willful ignorance;
resistance to accepting all statements, especially unsubstantiated ones, as facts;
resistance to the despair that can rise within us as we face the public discourse,
the science,
and the toll taken on human communities.”

The GrandMothers: Cherishing our healing justice process
involves a resistance to willful dissociation
from the intolerable;
resistance to internalizing shame and blame communications,
especially unsubstantiated egocentric
narcissistic
anthropocentric elitism predicting universal injustice
as normless facts;
resistance to NonElite despair
rising within us
as we face StraightWhiteMale dominant
corporate debate,
masquerading as win/win discourse,
discerning and restoring market science
despite the toll taken on multiculturally robust communions.

Robersmith: “Unfortunately,
our individual reactions to human-caused climate change
can also be unhelpful
in terms of finding solutions.”

The GrandMothers: Unfortunately,
individual actions to self-caused
and family-caused
and tribal-caused
and LeftBrain dominant communication-caused
overheating climate change
can also be monoculturally unhelpful
in terms of finding cooperative win/win imagined resolutions.

Robersmith: Some of us are panicking.

The GrandMothers: AnthroSpecies is panicking,
trending toward lose/lose competitive corporate rabidity.

Robersmith: Some are refusing to listen.

The GrandMothers: SWM LeftBrain dominance
continues to violently speak and autonomously act
more than non-violently win/win listen.

Robersmith: “Some are trying to scare everyone into certain behaviors
(whether to reverse or ignore climate change),
and others are just reporting what they think they know.”

The GrandMothers: Some are trying to persuade,
prophecy lose/lose pathology
within everyone
feeding uncertain restraining,
restrictive
retributive justice
and stingy win/lose compromised peace
known as impatient tolerance of further war
violence
divestment away from health
(whether to reverse RightBrain punishing Other
or deny evermore WinElite-LoseNonElite culture not-change),
and others are just reporting
what we think and feel we need safety,
health,
resonant wealth,
resiliently robust compassion.

Robersmith: “With all this debate and reaction,
a problem that is as large as climate change
can cause paralysis,
ineffectiveness,
and despair.”

The GrandMothers: While not listening to what others feel
we cooperatively need,
With all this win/lose political theological debate
rather than win/win economic ecological discernment,
With all this retributive reaction
rather than restorative win/win dialogical communication,
a problem that is as large as climate change
and species mortality
and global extinction of all regenerative energy systems
can cause egocentric paralysis,
competitive win/lose ineffectiveness,
corporate economic despair
about LeftBrain dominant
SWM privileged
violent runaway Win/Lose
Either/Or
Thinking v Feeling
monocultural
monochromatic
monotheistic
monocapitalistic
monoelitist rabidity.

And still inside singsong continues,
a uniting pidgin neurological language
feeling thought integrity:

We belong together
Through all kinds of colonizing corporate weather,
We belong creolizing together.
