I heard from PrimeAryan DT
that socialism kills nations.
I thought it was fascist totalitarianism
that killed nations,
the lack of democratic social intelligence,
win/win social justice.
at least on my mother’s side,
who seemed ancient and fragile to me,
“When you lose your health,
you love everything.”
I don’t know if they literally meant everything:
your active hope,
your egocentric voice,
Probably they meant only everything good,
all things social,
Beauty fading into inconsequential,
Truth into lack of significant meaning,
Life into absence of future purpose.
I was young and apparently immortal
and could not hear their wiser warning.
I find I have little more to add
to health’s imperative
standard for resilient Wealth:
much older and more integral,
historically and multiculturally deeper
or even humanity;
older, even, than verbal communication
about healthy v pathological social-system experience.
So, why isn’t this same observation
first on the list of every political party’s platform,
every faith community’s regenerative mission statement?
If we lose our democratic win/win social health,
we’ve lost our greatest wealth.
If we optimize
our actively co-invested trust
in global interdependent health,
we regain our most resilient dreams
of cooperatively-owned wealth,
served up with personal integrity.
“Make America Great Again”
whether triumphantly declared as “mission accomplished”
or somewhat more humble,
errs in dreaming way too small
When we could more robustly
“Make Earth Healthy Again”
Which would, of course,
also make America wealthy
in all the democratic social positives,
and none of the aristocratic anti-social negatives
I guess sometimes healthy restorative justice
is more like exploratory win/win polycultural justice,
more pro-social green peace meadows
grab and crab grass.
