Make America:

Does
Make America Great Again

Also mean
Make America Straight Again?

How about
Make America White Again?

Maybe
Make America
AntiFeminist Again?

Another possibility,
Make America
Christian Evangelical Supremacist
Again?

And,
more elaborately,
Make America
Business As Usual
Patriarchal/Capitalist
Autonomously Empowered
and Exclusively Enlightened
Again?

GREATness
is soooooooo much more
morally ambiguous
than public HEALTH
and global climate SAFEty.

I would feel so relieved
if my RedRight friends
and family
would patriotically fly
and pleasantly post
Make America Healthy Again
banners,
hats,
bumper stickers,
condoms,
masks,

And MAHA foreign
and domestic
green policy statements.

Setting the Bully Table

The often unnoticed first strategic step
in bullying
is to isolate.

Religious
political
economic
and/or sexual bullying
begins, already,
feeling entitled to pervasively disempower,
dissociate,
disinvest,
unenlighten,
excommunicate,
lock up,
terminate from employment,
send to the reservation,
asylum
ghetto,
wrong side
of the LeftBrain dominant
self-righteous tracks.

Deeply separate,
divide and, thereby, expose
and bully
that Other,
or those Others,
who need to learn their place,
separate and deservedly unequal,
to relearn their divinely-inspired space
of oppression
neglect
punishment

For being wrong,
too needy greedy,
too ignorant,
uneducated
simple
quiet and sneaky
queer
unbinary
effeminate
pretentious
hypocritical
weird looking, sounding, smelling,
frightening
angry
threatening…

Such alien Others
are first isolated
at least by disreputation,
then abused

First neglected
shunned
Othered
alienated
unaccepted,

Then ridiculed
used
raped
vilified

Blatantly and falsely accused
of being motivated
to dismiss
and impoverish
the monoculturing Bullies
through stealth
or by speaking their lying,
biased
self-serving Truth

Which is always ignored
until They get too uppity
again.

Bullies
and their Victims
are, thereby, deprived
of experiencing compassionate
cooperatively appreciated
and co-invested
dialogue.

Bullies
and their Victims
thereby declare and suffer wars
where everyone,
including plants and animals,
soil and water and air quality,
suffers and loses
except, in the bookkeeping department,
the military-industrial
short-term corporate profit Bullies

Who will not realize
their self-victimizing
long-term health and safety losses
until degeneratively isolated
from all prospects for a livable
sustainable
humane
sacredly compassionate
EarthTribe health and safety
future climate.

Reasonable Anticipations

Our Left hemispheres repeatedly seek stable reassurance,
hopefully not so much about

Am I the fairest/ugliest
of ThemOthers all?

But more maturely
rationally
sedately
calmly
compassionately,
Am I sustainably healthy?
How am I healthy/unhealthy?
Eased/not diseased?

Meanwhile,
Right hemisphere follows a similar question
of healthy/unhealthy purpose,
but more intuitively systematic,
more about inter-relationship,
about felt content and known context.

If healthy
confluent consciousness,
then why
and when
are we safe/unsafe?

A constantly repeated question
of healthy rational purpose,
or not,

But also,
more deeply,
more sacredly felt,
a quest for safe co-passionate meaning
in relationship to
and from
our progenitor gifts

Our indigenously wise
nature/spirit together felt fellow
hearty
hardy
hale anthro-familials,

Residents of spirit-natured
Yang mountain forests
and Yin river valleyed mellow meadows,

Animals,
animated insects,
birds and beasts,
bisexual flowers
and bilateral branch and root nutrition systems,

Bicameral hope
for bipartisan gifts
of bilaterally contextual
MeHealth and WeSafety intelligences

Binomially aware feelings
of why MeWe feels safer
on warm sunny days
and more unsafe
on cold dark nights
outside

Predicting
and appreciating how LeftBrain thinks
notices
processes

I am healthy
and unhealthy,
democratically green compassionate
and autocratically red virulent.

Blue Tolerating Red Intolerance

To Ecological Greens
concerned about tolerating
evangelical Red intolerance
of monotheistic unstraight
unwhite
unmale
unhealthy
unsafe
panentheistic EarthDays
and dualdark wiki-nights
potentially bicameral
bipartisan
bisexual
binomial
neurosystemic green regenerations
of win/win resonant images.

Any nonbinary person
all growed up
in a homophobic
straight
white
male anthrosupremacist monoculture

Will have trouble tolerating
RightWing fundamentalist
privileged monotheistic survival
of the fittest Chosen Anthros.

Green health and safety intelligence
knows,
and more significantly, feels
profound sacredly interdependent differences
between begrudged
impatient Tolerance
of us sinful
wounded
and suspiciously conspiratorial predations
associated with Evilish UnLawful Other,
oppositionally defying
a jealous and vengeful Jehovah
of retributive justice.

Such thinly disguised
severing No!
Not Healthy!
Greens feel
as not really spiritually
mentally
physically
naturally equal,
healthy,
or resiliently safe
to quietly tolerate
while sacred Earth’s
crust grows climatic
unease.

Mere Tolerance,
rather than warm Curiosity,
democratically healthy Empathy,
doesn’t even meet second-class Sympathy
health and safety standards,
much less first capital co-investment
active hope for feeling
we are safe
within Global Green
MotherEartha Solidarity

For engaging all organic EarthTribes
and every panentheistic EarthDay’s
positive sunshine energy systems
emerging democratic health,
mental
spiritual
physical
natural whole-sum wellbeing,
wealth optimization
through green-healthy
win/win bipartisan engagement
co-passion
co-empathic parties.

Mediating blue win/lose tolerance
may be a short-term strategy
to win individualistic AnthroSafety here
only to inevitably lose global EcoGreen-health now,

To survive this Red EarthDusk
at the Green cost cusp
of non-thriving future panentheistic regenerations
of tomorrow
can never win/win thrive
Jehovah’s individualistic Rapture
today.

More than Tolerance,
LeftWing liberal green EarthLovers
seek healthy co-empathic enlightenment
and safely cherished gratitude
for longterm win/win resonant
EarthTribe thrival
of a globally cathected
panentheistic
ecofeminist Green
cooperatively-owned
and managed
co-governing humanity.

This CoPassion,
between bilateral therapeutic communion
and bicameral non-violent communication

Grows safe-felt resonance
recycling polycultural green nutrition values
which revolve
resolve

ReGenerate
emergently spiraling
positively viral:
Win liberating health
to also Win sacred conservancy
of EarthTribe safety
through bipartisan
co-empathic communication,
rooted in trusted Blue/Green Earth
health/wealth systems.

A big ecosystemic Green Yes!
both Red monotheistic theologians
and Blue panentheistic ecologians
want the promise of anthrosupremacist democracy
to nation-state survive

But,
more than merely tolerating
LeftBrain intolerance
of RightBrain both/and hypothetical ambiguity
in-between secular Green/Blue
polycultural healing ecologians
and sacred Red
mono-theologians
speaking out
acting up
for a harmful judging
blaming and shaming
God made in
RedRight inhumane
punishing
wounding
supremacist images

Our Green-most active hope
lies within what we commonly share:
Polycultural values
for integrity of safe EarthPower
and healthy SunLight,
for developing democratic
forest mountain strength
and river meadow flowing
CoOperative Trust

To health-resonantly,
resiliently-safe Thrive
our Left/Right multiculturally valued wonder
and curiously awesome EarthTribe

Comedic
in our stingy democratic intent
to Tolerate AnthroBlue Laws
as if sufficient for climate health,

And intolerably Tragic
in our sacrilegious
unGreen
militaristic Red demagoguery
as if necessary
for ecopolitical EarthWealth.

Healthy Learning Platform

We cannot listen
or learn easily
when we do not feel safe,
said the environmental science students
to their corporate sponsored teachers.

Our lungs cannot breathe easily
or our hearts beat steadily
when we are not sure we can trust
the anthrosupremacist resource
currently lecturing
preaching
pontificating

If not explicitly,
than in some implied
win/win, too optimistic sin,
win/lose, realistically right
more than left sacred,
lose/lose, nihilistic blaming Earth
for our economies of moral
EarthTribe scarcity,
scary complicity

Toxic inside learning anxieties
anticipating outside cooperative
therapeutic
organic incorporations
like cooperatively owned forests and meadows,
mountains and river valleys,

Contextually embraced
by RightOne practical survivalists
and Left ZeroZone
outside classroom thrivalists
learning inside civil manners
from MotherTrees
and their sacred mountained forests
and lakes,
green and blue
and cloud covered too

Studying vast lands
of win/lose uncertainty
taught verbally
for capital-embedded ears to hear,
repeat,
memorize

And patriarchally reteach
reparent
ignoring our indigenous ecofeminist
deep green sacred
customary way of learning co-passionately felt
dialogical bioformation systems

Inviting conversations
between thoughts and feelings
as they inevitably
dipolar co-arise

When we are listening
deeply learning
easily curiously active
when we feel safe
and healthy
and sure we can trust
our cooperatively owned
sacred outdoor classroom gifts.

Strategic Considerations

Maybe it’s just me, hanging around with nonviolent communication students and teachers too much. But,

Always the big, “BUT”

But,…maybe AND is more appropriate.

And, if Putin’s big concern is to spoil Ukraine’s hunger to join NATO, then a full military assault seems maybe counterproductive, killing women and children, bombing bread lines and schools. Wouldn’t that kind of thing be why Ukraine is looking for NATO alliance, because of concerns that Putin and his overpaid Generals might forget that carrots are more effective than sticks when you are trying to persuade less wealthy, and more hungry for safety, people that your big stick next door isn’t an unfortunate event threat to their carrot crops and tops, and all those other greens and blues and even reds; who seem to have a peculiar affinity for ballistic sticks, even when spoons of sugar are so much less expensive, less damaging to well-manicured nails, and landscapes. The important classy stuff making up a delicious series of more fortunate events.

When I was trying to persuade those bratty neighbor children that they need not gang up against my less-affluent kids, it didn’t occur to me to lob grenades over the fence, instead of suggesting a pizza party. But maybe that was mainly because I was hungry too, for food, and health, and safe nonviolence.

Don’t Shut Me Out

Please don’t be mean to me
Don’t shut me out.

Please be kind to me
Don’t blame me
for all this pain about

Please give me a chance
to dance
to different drums
in dialects dissonant,
unknown.

Bless me with a hug
and not a sharpened shout.

Look me in the eye
and tell me
I am worth your time
in sacred space
here free of fear
in night’s angry doubt-filled place.

Please embrace this dignity,
don’t be mean to me,
Take love’s fearsome risk
in vast integrity;

Please, please don’t shut me out…
Invite me in.

EarthTribe Identity

I think,
therefore I am

Feeling we are
touching on
what we sometimes
more brilliantly think
and sing
and dance
reconnecting trust
together

More than apart
when I feel alone
on my best days
of solitary reflection

And downright lonely
during my worst nights
of combative thinking

Not so much feeling
safe as I am

Because we were,
and ever shall be,
co-arising polypathic
EarthTribe.

Listening for Healthy Relationships

I grow increasingly concerned
about living in an unhealthy monoculture
of educational
evangelical
judicial
legislative hubris

Rhetorically LeftBrain dominant
verbally debating
which empowered opinion leader
will improve my personal consumer powers
and ego-incorporated
greed productive profits

In this competitive big Dog
eats little not leftbrain dominant
feminized nasty dog
predative worldview

In which straight white male dominant
militarized
police state supporters
capital profit performers
for self-aggrandizing opulence
corpulence
corporate satiation

Slick as opioid addiction
to causing pain
supporting profitable relief
through drug-addiction management,

Corporate sponsored
unhealth
uncaring
inhumane unwealth
predation strategies

With no apparent worthy survivors
after we professionally
corporately
predatively kill prosperity
of all our individual
competitive pleasure-seeking consumers
off our superficial entertainment regimen
and away from our own RightBrain
cooperative
compassionate health care
environmental
sacred indigenous
natural/spiritual nondualistic
bilateral contextual intelligence.

What we need
therapeutically want
expect our teachers
clergy
judges
and elected representatives to wisely administer
is health and safety
of this
and future humane
regenerators of bicameral
bipartisan
multicultural win/win compassion,

Sacred
indigenous
health/wealth equitable care

So,
our universal EarthTribe
becomes more economically co-invested
in win/win political values

Empowering integral
holistic
equitable health care reception

Which is also
enlightening
trusted
safe wellness,
prosperity,
wealth care
cooperative EarthPeace production.
