Our MultiColored House

I find multicultural capital investment
socially healthier
politically wealthier
than more win/lose capital competitions.

Sociologists
may call this deep social communication capital,
so why don’t natural scientists
discover naturally cooperative capital investments
is a long-winded way
of winding around
recognizing
and appreciating,
not depreciating,
multiculturing health power?

With slow-grown co-investing
co-investigating
integrally wealthy
co-operative enlightenment.

That we already invest in profound healthcare implications
for this seminal,
perhaps even sacred,
difference between win/lose anthro-monopolized capital infestment
pathologically in tension
with win/win healthy EarthCapital
deeply cooperative co-investment

May 20/20 co-arise
another eco-political term
of Republican obsessively monoculturing
polarizing
Us v Them
Chosen People Government
of Win/Lose Publicans
addicted to settling for defensive powers
through conserving strength
of autonomous investments

Rather than We The People
Win/Win ChosenPlanet Earthicans
for liberating compassion flowers
through multiculturing healthy soil,
transparent rivers listening roots
flowing toward enlightened mouths,
wealthy winds of co-empowerment.

I recall an old-school feudal model
for Republican representations
endowed with territorial governing mandates
as appointed or inherited
and/or purchased from traditional
royal top of God’s appointed
Chosen Corporate Assets
owned by patriarchal pyramids
of royal people

Probably a bit like living
in an elite KingMaker
capital-infested top one-percent
of the Nationalist Republican RightWing
Win/Lose
SelfRighteous Anthro/Ego-Investment Party

Against all Liberal Lovers
of healthy co-invested trust
in grassroots chakra multiculturing
creolizing
cooperative win/win democratic healers

Who are arguably closer
to divinely graced democracy
even our own straight white patriarchal fore-fathers
of transitional from-above powers
for from-below enlightenment
and egalitarian dignity,
equity and active economic interdependence
of cooperative win/win intentional healers
of overpowering supremacy

For multicultural
through multigenerational
through poly-regenerational democratizing
co-investing
co-passioned
communication powers

As our U.S. Constitution is actually written
and spoken of
even in The Federalist Papers.

“It has been frequently remarked,
that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country,
by their conduct and example,
to decide the important question,
whether societies of men are really capable or not,
of establishing good [healthy] government
from reflection and choice,
or whether they are forever destined to [co]depend,
for their political [and economic] constitutions,
on accident [of high/lowly birth]
and [from-above] force.”
John Jay

Patriotic loyalty to our democratic Constitution,
our multigenerational Declaration of [Historic] Independence,
and emancipating former slaves
and women
and religious minorities

These all unanimously acclaim
and reclaim healthy grassroots empowering
cooperative from-below Democracy,
informed,
mutually trusting,
globally responsible
and responsive governing behaviors
underlying our Republican representative
eco-political Original Intent.

Given our history
of regenerative democratic health-healing,
RightWing Trumpian Republic governance
bought and sold
and subsidized for a term in office
by competing Nationalistic Win/Lose Party Kings
and Queens
and Titans of corporate monoculturing capitalism

Refusing to impeach a President for failure to commit
to empowering win/win grassroots democracy
for all We The People
in sickness and climate
and public
and mental
and physical
and spiritual health,

Insisting on deflectively attacking,
rather than receptively facilitating,
democratically accessible cooperative health
and climate wealth care,

Nominating SupremeCourt retributive justices
not committed to our ongoing
healing of illiberal stingy love
with democratizing processes
for multiculturally cooperative health/wealth progress
across greening new deal regenerations,

Inviting from-above Privileged Republicans
not having sufficient mental health
to recognize competitive,
transcendently disassociated
competitive win/lose Capitalism
sabotages our democratic Constitution,

Our deepest active hope
and healing faith
and liberal love
for continuing to exist as United States
of multiculturing cooperative Democracy

Is not,
nor ever was,
intentionally limited
and stuck
in Straight White Patriarchal privileged
acts of Treason
disempowering grassroots We
a health wealthing EarthTribe Species.

We are all win/lose complicit
by clinging to evolutionary models of Either Yes Or No
Black or White
Win or Lose
All or Nothing fundamentalistic redemption values

Rather than advocating win/win 20/20 revolutionary
bicameral templates
for cooperative capital-investment
in multicultural
health/wealthy
liberally living
democratically compassionate
co-governance

Through multi-partisan dialogue,
less polarizing debate,

Through restoring
natural/spiritual justice standards
for democratic
social capital
healing through co-investing
in Earth’s Deep Democratizing
Dynamic
Revolutionary Win/Win Peace

Which may be why
I find multicolored
non-WhiteHoused cooperative investment
socially healthier
politically wealthier
than more win/lose capital competitions.

Power of Compassion

Most Republicans I’ve had the admittedly too infrequent pleasure
of listening to
assume financial wealth
is a greater public responsibility
and opportunity
than very much secondary social wealth
of healthy relationships,
resonant and democratically inclusive resilience.

And, Green Democrats
seem to share a world view
giving primal priority to values of social wealth,
multicultural co-investment
in people,
plants,
planetary inter-relationships,
global compassion.

So, a simple Thought Experiment
in competitive v cooperative relationality:

Imagine you are the ultimate capitalist success story
Playing a zero-sum win/lose game,
you always win,
so everybody else loses.
Eventually all financial assets,
natural resources,
human resources,
belong to you.
There remains no financial competitor left standing.
You are Earth’s omnipotent predator
of all economic value.

What happens to the value
of your capital liquid assets
at the moment you achieve
your perfect monopolistic success?
a perfect vacuum of other economic competitors?

Now, imagine social relationships
are our root source of value.

You develop cooperative relationships
that branch out into a global nurturing
and mutually nutritious network
of co-empowering healthy communication
until, finally, no one stands outside
your robust caring cooperative,
your multiculturally resonant social system.

At the exact moment of perfect synergetic interdependence,
when loneliness,
segregation,
distrust,
apartheid,
dissociation,
antagonistic lack of peaceful relationship
is nothing more than a pre-millennial memory,
what remains of your social,
multicultural
political
and cooperative economic value?

How would you ever finish spending
and extending
your social capital co-investments?

So, when Republicans
and not-so-Green Democrats
sternly inform me
We need a solid Business Model
for a robust and resilient government
and for perpetual economic growth,
I am always curious to learn
which Business Model they have in mind,

Competitive win/lose? Like capitalism,
Or cooperative win/win?
Like sacred Earth communion.

National Public Radiators

All this long week
of early spring head colds
our National Public Radio informants
and performers,
speakers and listeners,
have been about the business of raising capital investments
preferably in their corporate direction,
to support further public broadcasting
for the benefit of our children
and their children,
and so on.

While this has often felt like a guilt-inducing headache,
I was drawn into a list of statistics about NPR listeners.
Contrasts between those who do listen
and those who do not,
or,
more likely,
those who send in cash,
and those who do not.

At first the list seemed random.
More likely to recycle,
to attend live theater,
go to the symphony,
grow gardens,
bake their own cookies,
read bedtime stories to their kids,
read anything at all.

And then I realized we are looking at social capital;
growing and re-investing in social capital.
What a permacultural designer would relabel
and spread across endangered soils and waters and souls
as eco-capital re-investment;
re-investment in ourselves
in each other’s talents and ideas and skills
in Earth’s re-creative abundance.

The economic thing sometimes not noticed
by ecopolitically cooperative re-investors:
high consumers tend to also be high producers.

So, while they didn’t say so,
I have heard it said elsewhere,
NPR listeners also list heavily toward higher education,
and rabid too-the-roots,
White Protestant Victory Or Die
Republicans know what that means.

Why isn’t eco-capital investment as robust
in traditional Republican neighborhoods,
as in more multicultural Democratic necks of woods
and urban forests?
Or is it?

While there may be as many answers
as there are people who do not invest cash in NPR,
I suspect those Republicans who prefer to NPR listen,
rather than RightWing AM Rant,
also find this soft correlation between deeper learning
and eco-capital active re-investment troubling
to their centrist nurturing instincts and orientations.

It seems difficult to listen to an International Public Cooperative Economy
while simultaneously expecting positive outcomes
from ecopolitically competitive egocentric and supremacist
nationalistic success is divinely inspired
by God’s Invisible Hand of Independent Might Makes Right EgoNomics.

While it seems harsh and judgmental
to speak cooperative prophecy to competitive strength,
we might do well to remember
with Paulo Freire
that teaching is best practiced as mentoring,
and mentoring is always ecopolitical cooperative,
more than competitive, relationship.

Political mentoring relationships that work,
whether you are part of an academic research community,
or part of an architectural design and implementation team,
or part of a cooperatively-owned and self-governing corporation,
require Yangstrength of balance to fall on the side of harmony,
resonance,
both-and nutritionally inclusive and diverse health,
rather than egocentric
eco-capital disinvestment through autonomous competitions,
in a monocultural assumption of EitherOr fundamentalism
where Earth’s historically regenerative evidence
more resonantly broadcasts BothAnd eco-capital re-investment.

If love powers define ecopolitical power of WinWin cooperativity,
so fear power refines mistrusted egopolitical WinLose competing disempowerments,
then we could not have healthy and reliable growth of empirically-supported and replicated information,
much less wealthy faith re-investment economies,
unless the power of positive eco-capital investment
overwhelms and absolves powers of negative ego-decapitation
capitalistic small-self-investment.

But then,
I am one of those International Public Broadcasters,
so sometimes my multicultural balance
can become merely eisegetically polypathic,
which is a multisyllabic way of saying
nuts
and empty zero-sum notnot double-bound.

It all started with the head cold
and overheated brain.
