Crippled America, But Growing Good

I was reading Trump’s Crippled America the other day…

I’m sorry to interrupt, but why?
Isn’t his Unreality Show more than taxing enough already?

Well, more than sufficient, actually,
but I was trying to figure out
what he believes a non-gimpy America
would look like.

Fascist scary, am I right?

Like a pilot
for yet another dystopian vampire series.
Anyway,
he keeps describing himself
as not only a rich man
but a nice man.

But not a crippled good man.

Right.
I’ve heard him declare some of his relatives are good.
And then there were the Nazis in Virginia,
also some good people there.
Just having a bad day
at the same time
in the same unfortunate little place
by coincidence,
but good people,
with democratically healthy intentions.

Probably reminds him of his Republican Party.

He says he is rich and nice;
but does not say he is good
or could become better,
or in any way ego crippled,
fractured by love
for innocence of intimate life
as gift.

I don’t suppose he’s just being coy.

I see Trump as coy
even less than Trump as nice.
He all but uses the word “bully”
describing how he ended up in military school,
where he also had unspecified issues.

Didn’t we call those reform schools
back in the day
of childhood self-righteousness?

No, dear,
reform schools were supposed to be about education
to restore sanity.
Military school is about going the other insane direction,
polyunsaturated war-mongering and ballistic bully threats
against foreign property,
which, unfortunately, includes people
and their pets.

And livestock,
gardens and farms,
food and fiber
and spiritual philosophy.

Unworthy causes for erections
and elections
for some not so nice people.

Like un-reformed bullies?

Like over-fertilized monoculturing bullies
writing contracts out again Crippled America.

That doesn’t sound good.

Or nice.
Or even particularly rich
for that matter.

I wonder if too much money,
in an aggressively colonizing
capital-infested culture
leads to too much power
to do even more aggressive violence
against natural-spiritual riches
of Earth
and Her Heavenly ways and means,
cooperative design
and intelligent equi-lateral nutritional planning.

I wonder if rich WesternWhite men
who hope they are becoming more refined,
nicer bullies,
but won’t even pretend to be good,
are any more likely to become good healthy humans
than to pass through the crippled eye
of a discerning wu-wei needle.

Crippled eyes
to stand in solidarity
with the rest of us sinners
doing our best
to learn powers of love
over nice and rich bullying evil.

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.

Nurturing SacredNature

What LeftBrain Yang learns about nature,
by standing apart from nature,
RightBrain Yin explores within Sacred Nature v Secularizing Pathology.

LeftBrain Yang
sells us Win-Lose choice
of therapy restoring peace, someday,
or retributive traumatic self-righteous justice,
sufficient for today.

RightBrain Yin
would offer ego/ecotherapy within,
with sacred natural-spiritual
nondual Yang-Yin primal relationship.

Yin darkly offers this deeper sacred ecological gift
of cognitive-affective dissonance,
anti-enthymematic noise,
resistance,
depressing witness,

Yin lightly invites divine co-presence,
basic attendance,
noticing Win-Lose of YangLeft
against YinRight crises

As also Win-Win LeftEgo
within RightEco
sacred Gaian opportuinities
for restoring cooperative
bilateral balancing
health-therapy

Rather than Yang’s dominating habit
of dismissing,
undervaluing Yin’s matriarchal WisdomCircles
seeking com[passionate]
poly[culturing]
natural-spiritual outcomes.

Our political economies of choice
toward Win-Win cooperative light
or competitive Win-Lose,
not quite so bright, defaults,
preferences,
instincts,
choices,
proclivities
invite restorative therapies
of RightBrain’s Sacred Tao-ecology

With ThreePoint Trinitarian thermodynamics
dipolar appositional vectors,
nomials,
variables,
dialectal structures,
morphology,
ethology,
cosmology,
revolutionary transubstantiation,
wu-wei dipolarity,
positive psychology,
biology,
sacred ecology
of Win-Win bilaterally humane-divine
ego-eco
Left-Right

DNA-RNA ecopolitical solidarity

Fractal holonic 4D RealTime relationships,
double-binding
within full-color and sound
scaled spectral octaves

Singing and dancing together
but not merely toward or for poor victim sinner Others,
and certainly no longer degenerating away from
restoring co-redemptive Others,
but Win-Win singing PermaCulturing NatureSpirit Operas,
already at bicameral hand
and foot
and mindbodies
within bilateral Earth-consciousness

Teaching and learning
speaking and hearing
giving and receiving

More Audacious Hope

Senator Obama’s Audacity of Hope
ends with listing memories,
visual images,
that rekindle his love for this imperfectly united Place

For his Country,
this humane Habitat
for mutual care-giving,
and at least implies this is all he needs,
not yet all he hopes,
for mutual care-receiving.

His vocational visions
of cooperatively developing this Place
are common to cultures
across six of seven Continents,
inhabited by a healthy
and peace-intentional
People

People for restoring naturally cooperative justice,
not so much relying on retribution,
threat of punishment,
ruthless egotistic competitions,
with Win-Lose evolutionary assumptions
about this sacred Planet.

He runs along Washington’s Mall,
while remembering bakers baking bread,
and masons laying bricks and blocks
and Lincolns inaugurating good-faith speeches
and Kings gathering rainbows of good hope
while watching homeless men on benches
rearranging, endlessly, their possessions,
their bricks and blocks for survival,
without judgment or condemnation,
even if without understanding,
with gratitude,
basic positive attitude,
on each and every side.

For, if we do not have proof
those who are differently arranged
and languaged
and encultured
and flagged
than ourselves
are not doing their best,
are not filled with their portion of sacred cooperative grace
for developing this Place,
our spaces
interdependent
and in nondual dipolar relationship,
And who could know another’s Place
so intimately and vulnerably
to have such proof of mere malicious malingering,
shy of Gaian Earth HerSelves?

Then,
without proof of full will and full intent GoldenRule violations,
then we are ethically healthier
and aesthetically more satisfied
to continue in good faith,
We, and those around us,
of all ages
and genders
and cultures
and languages
and colors
and rhythms
and flags
share this grace-filled Place
sacred vocation.

To run through our Washington Malls
of mind and heart with exercising bodies,
Malls of historic healthy wealth development
remembering, with appreciation,
filling with gratitude,
for writers of democracy-growing unity Constitutions,
layers of trust-growing bricks and blocks,
singers of multiculturing faith,
dancers for MotherEarth’s sacred love
and beauty.

Our cooperative relationship with Earth,
and Earth’s diversely polyculturing Tribes,
does not grace us with more life and death
than we can handle satisfactorily,
aesthetically,
and usefully,
ethically,
and in good health,
morally and physically,
until S/He does,
and then we can try our best
to learn to sing
and dance
and co-empower,
to learn restoratively together,
or continue to degenerate
with retribution’s dark intents and purposes
apart.

Restoring democratic climates of health
is also absence of punishing climates of pathology.

Run through democracy’s Malls
for cooperative-growing unity
to run away from plutocracy’s Centers
for competing-punitive uniformity.

Let Us Speak Clearly Together

Let me speak clearly with you
dear religious and atheist Trumpians,

A fool in executive office
is a leader
only in foolish directions.

A rich thief
is the worst thief
as survival motives
are absent,
so self-thrival motives
remain piratically rampant.

An intellectual prostitute
to feel-good politics
is an ecopolitical whore,
competing for economic gain
after self-deluding blinders to ego’s mortality
are in place,
no healthier options for right livelihood
are currently in RealTime fake-space.

Perpetual reinvestment
in racing automated death machines
is not investment in peace.

Health is not purchased
by selling out your habitat’s
most nutritionally valuable assets.

Economic policy
at the bought-and-paid-for bidding
of bottom-line moneytaker corporations
is WinOrLose Evolutionary Political Science
reduced to its most cynical
monoculturing market value;
A political prostitution of mindbodies,
as are smoke-filling climate pathology backrooms
that call LoseInvestment To LoseInfestment
anti-ecological economic degenerative denialism
as if patriotic “manifest sacred EmpireBuilding destiny.”

Cowardice and mendacity
reduce healthcare giving and receiving optimization values
in bad religious or atheistic faith
believing this denialist-nihilist direction
is HellFire retributive EarthJustice inevitable.

While refusing to notice
this inevitability
assumes cowards
invest in supremacist assumptions
about small ego-centric
anthro-centric
manifest destiny,

Whether manifest by sacred scripture
or patriarchal WesternWhite Supremacists,
fools and prostitutes
thwarting internal capacities
to read with RightBrain Hearts,
threatened most by your own violent absence
of integrity.

Mendacity against Earth’s multiculturing Peace,
against restoring economically cooperative justice,
and calling out against sacred co-redemption
for all species
still trying to breathe our best
therapies without trauma.

I believe issues of monoculturing ego-identity
mostly suffer from not being polyculturally envisioned enough.

Healthy PeaceCircle PermaCultural Design
co-mentors thought
and notice
and co-witnessing without
LeftBrain dominant preoccupations
and addiction
to violent machines of death
fueled by releasing toxins
into Sacred MotherEarth’s breath,
and metaphysically sacred womb.

I believe colonization
retributively pre-judges
and condemns,
represses
suppresses
depresses
overly impresses colonizer missionary zeal
against FirstNation and aboriginal forms and functions
of restorative justice principles shared
sacred reconciliatory nature-spirituality,
as if reconciliation cooperative economics
and Win-Win politics
were not also formed and functioned
as sacred grace
of God’s PolyCulturing EarthLove.

PermaCulturing ReStorational Design
provides a conceptual Win-Win framework
to ecologically affirm,
creolize,
Left-Right Brain synergize,
bilaterally co-legitimate
what remains good
and democratically healthy
still optimizes sacred ecological wealth
at today’s leading edge
of postmillennial restoring
permaculture design peace circles,
extended cooperative family

adaptations

revolutions
predicting great transitional climate ecojustice
familiar sacred vocations to and with all species
as our DNA-RNA Solidarity
Traditional EcoPolitical
PlanetExtinction Survival Way,

CoOperatively owned
and co-invested
and co-redemptive
Win-Win Whole MultiCulturing Group co-managed.

I believe transitional ecojustice
both follows pathology and precedes growing health,
large scale nutritional Left-Right ego-eco dominant conflicts
andLeftBrain dominant anthro-centric overshoot
of balancing Western dualistic SacredWords of Grace
with Eastern nondualist
bilateral and polypathic
Gaian-Principled Karma.

Our global vocation
is to end our addiction to
“dire machines
that run by burning
the world’s body
and its breath.”
(Wendell Berry)

But, more happily,
we are also EarthTribes
of and for Restorative PermaCultural EcoJustice
Design and Therapy
growing polycultural economics of slow health growth
rooted in Traditional cooperative Win-Win thrift,
taking care of health and peace for all Earth’s creatures,
not so much the anti-integrity
reductive Win-Lose theft
from our own Future’s
most likely vulnerable losers,
children with cooperative gifts
for matriotic peace wombs-to-rebirthing circles
and not so much mere mendaciously patriarchally-owned
ballistic death machinations
toward Lose-Lose enslavement
to further retributively dominant injustice
and criminalizing war-mongering,

Steering clear of anti-ecological waste
and ruin
and anti-intellectual copouts;
Especially those choosing between LeftBrain reason
and RightBrain sacred inductive mystery,

between restorative ecopolitics
and sacred ecology,

As if the God of LeftBrain Space
is not also the GaiaGoddess of BiLateral RightBrain Timeless-Time,
together having created
double-binding distinctions
with only a nondual-dark Zero-Soul absence of difference
between where we have come from permaculturally
and where we originally intended to go
polyculturally polypathic
polynomially balanced

Le us speak clearly with you,

Choosing Integrity

Ultimately
what we respect
and whom we love most dearly
emerge from past relational choices we have made

Ideally
intentional choices toward healthy integrity.

Yet too often
merely blundering along
hoping against reasonable faith
to avoid ultimately pathological trauma

I may not truly believe in heavenly peace,
but I sure as hell want to avoid even more hell.

Settling
for short-term band-aids
covering over long-term,
possibly even multi-generational,
therapeutic opportunities
to set aside retributive pay-back politics
perpetuating denial of ecological wisdom
and disassociation of human nature
from all sacred Earth natures.

Ultimately
no one actually prefers to set aside gratitude
for opportunities
to experience love’s integrative powers,
to embrace our own past and future EarthMothers,
to be filled with Her and His radiantly nurturing Wonder
and holy Awe
within FatherSun’s radiant light
and regenerative powers of ergodic-harmonic Matters;

Ultimatums
are a planetary polyphonic ribbon
of historic revolution
still emerging from sacred Light’s heart
and mind
of divinely bright
sacred Love
of and for cooperative Win-Win life
and notnot evil
Lose-Lose
inevitably dualdark
anti-economic
and anti-political disempowering
and anti-ecological
bad faith choices.

Ultimately
what we respect
and whom we love most dearly
emerge from past integrity choices we have made.

Apple Farmers on Trump’s Administration

I was interviewing farmers
about how they see Presidential performance
in Trump’s first year as CEO
of this USA,
incorporated
for a yet more perfect Union:

Well, I believe he only has one national leader
who has publicly announced
that he will do whatever he can
to kill him,
and probably take out the rest of us
along his nuclear warhead way.

So, is that a concern
or congratulations
or both?
How does that performance number compare to your predicted outcomes?

Oh, I figured maybe more than one
by now.

Because…

I thought his
“I’m taking America Out First”
assault on the Paris Climate agreement
might generate a more immediate heating up
of the world’s international firing range.”

I’m still confused
about whether you are giving him a pass,
because you didn’t really think any national leader could do anything
to advance your peace of mind,
or whether you are disappointed
with the Trump administration’s performance
this first year.

That would make it at least two of us.
But, let me tell you,
I believe he may be the first President
to publicly threaten to turn an entire,
or maybe just a half, nation
into a nuclear holocaust.

So he’s threatening with the biggest stick so far.
Are you hoping to see that escalate
or de-escalate?

We’re all kind of hoping things might calm down.
Nuclear waste is really hard on the apple harvest.
Hard to grow apples without the basics,
like trees,
or folks to plant
and pick
and eat from them.
