These Liberating Truths

I’m musing with Jill Lepore,
historian (Harvard feminist, but definitely within brackets of general interest),
through eight hundred pages of These Truths
telling an other U.S. herstory.

She starkly says,
“Slavery is political”
while I had been thinking more of addictive economic
and punitive domestic relationships,
enslaving social absence of healthy relationships,
Dr. Lepore reminds me
about powerful natural/spiritual inter-relationships,
where overpowering addictions meet underpowering enslavement.

Nationalistically political
community-toxic apartheid,
personally oppressive-repressive ego-supremacist pathological
for both LeftBrain long-term smart investors
and RightBrain universal-frame cooperatively sentient property(ies) development.

LosePredator/LosePrey colonizing politics
again this historical effect
of insufficient interdependently synergetic web-spinning together
a healthier WinWin history/herstory
of ego/eco-normative
nature-spirit ZeroZones,
Universal mountains of suppressed affluent strength
Unitarian eco-valleys of depressed effluent flowing grace,

Deductively autonomous truth labels
Inductively not-interdependent/not-fragmented flow
of ambidextrously apathetic suppression of impassioned feelings

Competitive Either/Or
CoOperative Both/And
nondual co-arising networks of communion,
ComPassionately owned nutritional RightBrain sentience,

Although perhaps not quite so much LeftBrain
dominantly effective/affective sentences.

ReImaging history
re-employing fertile/stagnant qualities
re-deploying LeftDominant language
of RightWing over-reactionary capital-royalist apartheid
competitively bought and sold with an ego-defeating loss,
disinvesting oppressions,

RePlaced by healthier

To invest in writing
and publishing
and reading eight hundred pages

speaking truth to degenerative commodified economic
anti-ecological death of a healthy
multicultural future climate opportunity,
historically declaring cooperative integrity life
or death of violent non-solidarity.




Engaging the Family Laundry

Perhaps infertile
unwashed memories
of elder v younger,
Goliath v David,
crusades v communion
critical, yet part of chronic, events
speak extended family disengagement truth
to powerful dirty laundry engagement failures.

That disclaimer said,
I have two incomplete conversations
in mind and heart
and what I hope I will eventually learn
from mistakes in anemic compassion
too thin for nobler listening opportunities.

When I was sixteen,
I courageously confronted my dad
about his white supremacist beliefs,
which would not endorse slavery
but were oppressively too comfortable
with White nationalism
and patriarchal white-washed privileged capitalism
Win/Lose meritocracy theology,
evolutionary ethology,

God’s chosen evidence of Black and Brown unfortunate
lack of pure enough LeftBrain intelligence
to successfully care for their own intellectual
and physical
property/properties God given
but in a more niggardly way.

After all, if they were as full of divine grace as we are
then they never would have become forced migrant fieldhands
and robotic domestic servants
before we had robotic domestic servants,
properly satisfied with a basic shack,
self-grown food,
cotton-picking and sugar-caning uniforms,

Rented and unrented servants capable of learning
yet not relentlessly driven by passion
for deeper democratic health interdependent webs of life
empowered each day by dense political understanding,
robust economic awareness of who has power to sell
and who has insufficient power to redeem
what could never be naturally-spiritually commodified
without severely wounded ego-disintegrity,
social madness,
political fury.

When I asked my dad,
Why are you so sure people of color,
especially women,
are so intellectually and emotionally and and mentally inferior to you,
the WhiteMan
living in an all white rural community
and all white nationalist church
fully invested in a white
military-industriously colonizing
authoritarian mess?
And an all white school system
and all white county government
all your life?

He could not point to any experience
of his own white superiority
But he could pull out a Reader’s Digest article
regarding research on standardized LeftBrain tests
with unstated lexicon
and linguistic norms
of dialectally empowered WhiteEnglish DominantSpeak.

My WiseElder dad told me to read it
and get back to his more seniority self
if I had any further naive questions.

That was the end of that conversation.
Question asked
and self-declared orthodox textual reference answered.

A year ago
I asked my White nationalist evangelical older brother
if he would vote for D Trumpian again,
and, if so, why?
Given his Christian God of love
and his GoodNews evangelistic vocation
to bring universal peace
and uniting divine justice to all people
now and in rapturous kingdom at near ill-defined hand
of future Heaven
for all eternity,
red and yellow,
black and white,
they are precious
in His sight.

My brother responded,
While troubled by Trumpian narcissism,
and maybe over-wrought cynicism,
Trump’s anti-immigrant
anti-Islam sectarianism
are a good faith fit
for God scripturally written to be pissed off
about pagan idolatrous hedonists
and uppity women
and lying stealing greedy children
and people too stupid to get it
that God has been strategically designed
in a RightWing dominant WhiteMan’s ancient
apartheid image
of spiritualized
denatured seclusion.

Well, OK,
he explicitly said just the first part,
about keeping out the threatening anti-Christian,
pro-liberal ecofeminist choice,
anti-family values foreigners,
All for building an impermeable moat
around a White privileged patriarchal “Christian” nation
on an awesome well-lit hill,
originally intended to be democratically enfranchised
only for White male property-owners,
possibly including Black and Native American slave property,

But only White property-owners have historically correct autonomous rights
to carry automatic military rifles
and drive gas and oil-hog Hummers to an all-White church
in substantially Black and Brown Flint, Michigan.

When I asked him why keeping Muslims,
and perhaps other Black
and suspiciously Spanish-speaking Brown people out,
was more important to his Christian beliefs
than keeping democratic family health care in
and USA climate therapeutic care
at the top of our global investment budget,
even higher than our ballistic automated threat budget
designed to blow up people
and plants
and planet,
He said he had no interest in that conversation.

The only important conversation for us,
from his fundamental dogma-centered power position,
was how much of the King James Holy Bible
I have properly memorized and adopted,
not adapted,
and invited into my personal everyday relationship with Jesus.

The political Jesus,
unmarried Messiah
and Teacher of following GoodNews Truth
into universal interdependent compassion,
most accessible to a child, wounded and poor in spirit,
when Win/Win Truth invites GoldenRule conflict
between elders and siblings
about signs of extended family integrity
and wonders of divinely humane non-walled communion,
non-apartheid community,
non-violent communication…

Again, I digress
from explicit historical conversations
about experiential evidence for White nationalist privilege
on into internal implications for WinWin empowering communion
where I can sometimes Left with Right childlike balance,
still finding and grasping onto
universally inviting unitarian
co-operative laundry cleaning compassion.


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.

The opposite of historical integrity
is cultural mendacity


Occupying Revolutionary ZenSoul

What is wrong with deficit-growing expenditures

We already have deep spiritual ecology,

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

Criminal behaviors
are rooted in revenge

bad faiths in superior wants and isolating needs.

is rooted in shame.

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

Lack of value

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,

Failures of love
are rooted in abundance of memorized terror.

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

personal and public sufferings,
failures of sufficient social integrity.


Thomas Jefferson

It interests me to peer past the drafting
and rewriting shoulder
of Thomas Jefferson,
unhappy slave-owner,
and John Adams,
with domestic slave-owner nuisance issues,
and other principle writing minds
of original democratic declaration and constitution shaping times,
as they listened to their own ecopolitically experienced bodies,
some as fear and anger-mongering slave-owners,
some as not so much, thanks but,
not really quite OK for me
and my family,
and ethically
and perhaps even patriotic democratically speaking
for all human natures created with equal sacred dignity.

Jefferson wrestles with personal political empower
or disempowerment,
economic and ecological
co-arising a national-forming issue:

How can we allow buying and selling of human nature and souls
and what does that imply with regard to controlling things we might specifically state
as a right of citizenship
for all multicultural people yet to arrive
as newer immigrants of alien,
and often people of color nation majorities
and non-Western European states
and diverse religious and cultural territories.

So, rights of citizenship
are also encitizenship rights going forward:
Rights of free speech and assembly: except slaves, and probably women, need not apply, as of this writing.
speaking just for my Thomas Jefferson self,
I’m not comfortable with this,
but, this was the best John Adams and I could work out
that the Red SlaveOwner States were willing to invest in
for long-term democratic growth and health and happiness
and prosperity outcomes.

Rights to own and carry, transport weapons,
ballistic or otherwise,
including the fully military-industrialized capitalistic Win/Lose economic presumptions
of the NRA,
which, well, OK,
both M-I monoculturing capitalism and the NRA don’t exist yet,
but I can see where this is going,
and it looks like uncivil war
all over again
this right to bear arms,
and sharp instruments,
oh, right,
grenades and automatic rifles of course,
and probably tanks and Hummers too,
but slaves, and probably women, need not apply
for all lives matter eco-citizenship,
much less rights of religious freedom,

Because my zealous self-righteous Red State Constitutional Brothers
are only co-investing in enslavement
to a Win slave-owners,
compromised ecopolitical outcome
despite my own
Original Democratic Constitutional Intent!

Dear John,

Thanks for reading the above,
and thanks also for not commenting on it.

I just needed to vent
about who’s going to sort out
remaining dissonance
about rights of capitalistic ownership
currently monopolized by white male property owners
and remaining rights to own humane nature
for economic and ecological gain
despite a RightBrain suppressive
frame of lost and imbalanced unhealthy mind.

Thanks for listening.
I’m feeling a lot of dissonance about this.
Some issues here on the home-front.

I’m also about to send you the final draft you asked for.

Warm Enlightenment
and Profoundly Patriotic Regards,

Thomas ReGenerative EcoPolitical Creationist Jefferson

Dear Thomas,

Take a pill.
Or, better yet,
there is a Georgian State Representative who,
in about 250 years from now,
will suggest you would be doing your patriotic duty
if you stopped taking your pills,
so maybe…
No, I’m sure you’re not popping pills,
it’s just the alcohol, right?

Do you even drink?
I can’t remember.

I just want to remind you
that not only do we have considerable personal investments
in this whole patriotic USA democracy experiment working out
for the next several generations,
but so do all those white guys
whose primary current property values
are, in fact, their slaves,
and their potential to feed and breed more
for agricultural and domestic economic,
yet not quite so ecological,
LeftBrain dominant EcoPolitical Traditions
and reasons,
and yet feelings of dissonance,
and uncomfortable excuses,
and lack of curiosity and interest and co-investment,
and neglect of co-empathic Sacred RightBrain consciousness development,
about what remains ecologically and patriotically healthy,
and what is fake anti-healthcare giving and anti-redemptively receiving
weedish monoculturalism,
religious totalitarianism
replete with anti-patriotic Win/Lose pathologies.

we sink apart
or swim together
ecopolitically speaking,
if you see what I mean.

Thank you,
in advance,
for preparing our final draft,
doing the best we can
in here with now RealTime.

With Warming Economic and Political Climates in Mind,
John CoInvested Negotiator Adams

RE: The current co-investments due
to actually give birth to this Win/Lose compromise
toward Win/Win Promised MotherLands
for future Farmer Adams,
Left with RightBrain speaking.

To future multiculturing generations we could not squeeze in here
and now:

So, the rest is for you to decide,
toward universal healthcare democracy of cooperative Left with Right ownership
and multiculturally co-equivalent governance,

Or still burning-out with LeftBrain dominance,
as RedState MonoCulturing Yang-Dominant Win/Lose
toward Lose/Lose long-term degenerativity
of all Earth’s un-reborn alien and pagan sinners,
who would be better off as slaves
of rightwing fake-christians,
heterosexual white males strongly preferred,
thanks so much.

Republicans and Civil Rights Wars

I can, at last, begin to see
why Trump reminds himself, assiduously,
of Republican Party CoFounder Lincoln.

He believes, as did Lincoln,
it is our time to redress
winnings v. White male supremacy over slavery,
and women,
and children,
and Earth Herself,
and xenophobic racist losings
of the U.S. Civil War.

Except, one critical difference,
While Trump fuels patriotic investment
where Red States once were hate and fear exhausted,
Lincoln sided Republicans
and all his other multi-party Cabinet,
with defining patriotism
by where Blue States
are climates of health and freedom
now growing,
if the Red States would just join with us
in moving on toward
our multiculturally polypathic cooperative rewards,
the spoils of UnCivil Wars long gone.

It seems likely
Lincoln’s Republican remains
are turning black and bluer
in his green-grassed grave.
