Contract Against Greatness

In Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”
she paints a nationalistically wealthy saint
where also lives a monochromatically utilitarian narcissist,
sucking on attachment to fame and power
for bought and sold ZeroSum accounting Souls.

If the perfectly powerful pure patriarchal patriot
were your own Atlas father,
you might feel certain
he would prefer you grow to be Trumpian
and probably not a peace activist
vegetarian;
certainly not half-naked Gandhi.

Donald Trump
is the formerly cooperative democratic Enlightenment-inspired,
white privileged
monoculturing logical conclusion
to a now almost fully win/lose left-hemisphere autocratic disenchantment
predicting our PostIndustrial Totalitarian Revolution
and Anti-Christian
Anti-Islamic
Anti-Spiritual Experience
dogmatic left-commodified hemispheric Rapture;
not to be confused with Rabbi Heschel’s left with right integral
wonder regenerating timeless awe.

Donald Trump
as the shrugging Atlas UnPresident
of boring old-fashioned cooperative win/win spiritual hopes
and global fake-fundamental
non-conservational
win/lose ecopolitical
monocultural aspirations,
And yet also,
a shadow perhaps,
of ecological/theological respirations,
still silent speaking against his predator rights of wealthy nations
in his “Art [and Science] of the Deal.”

Nowhere, in his Chapter Two,
“Trump Cards: The Elements of the Deal”
will we find any value for win/win ego/ecological cooperative evolution;
Like the evolution you and I have
every left-hemisphere dominant day
and right-hemisphere prominent win/win night.

While climate restoring Schumacher activists
advocate Think Small,
Trump begins with “Think Big”
and autonomously take out win/lose contracts
against a more civil win/win empowering multicultural society
with explicit constitutional commitments
to natural/spiritual Enlightening nondualistic prosperity,
well-being
global,
and national,
and family,
and personal health/wealth care.

“Protect the Downside
and the Upside
Will Take Care of It[My]self.”
In this second Trump principle of the Big Deal
we see more the science and math of his egocentric,
monoculture supremacist,
anthropocentric terrorism;
His prejudice against God’s weak and vulnerable migrants
outside U.S. borders,
and illegal immigrants inside U.S. borders.

Here, in TrumpLand of win/lose zero-sum dealmaking,
healthy diversity is anti-natural
and ‘bad boy’ bullying sacred law and order
assumed to be an appropriate response
to a pernicious communioned interdependent threat
to wealthy monoculturing uniformity–
never mind about polypathic right/left integrity.

The entire global biodiversity of regenerative species
gloriously together sing out, and in,
restorative win/win peaceful creolizing anthems,
quite to the contrary reversion principle
from yang/yin
win/win polyphonic integrity.

“Maximize your [EgoCentric] Options”
by never getting too attached to winning just one deal;
Yet do remain ego-invested in autonomously winning all deals,
all places and spaces,
all the time
reinvesting in left-hemisphere dominance
as if a fully universal map
for an unbalancing ego-uncentric territory.

“Know Your Market”
instinctively overpowering
and repressing right-hemispheres
preferring win/win co-investment
in the healthier contagion of compassion,
peace,
possibly even democratically-held joy.

“Use Your [Either Win or Lose] Leverage”
rather than return to compassionately empower
our healthiest democratic win/win co-leverage,
capital co-invested leverage,
cooperative employee-ownership leverage.

Notice that “Use Your [access to capital wealth] Leverage”
sounds quite different than Principle 11
in David Holmgren’s
“Permaculture Principles
and [Poly]Pathways Beyond Sustainability”
where cooperative permaculture designers
actively caution each other
not to assume you
and/or a nation-state
are on the right health track
just because it is an overly wealthy
beaten-down pathway to anthropocentrism
and narcissistic xenophobia,
“Use Edges
and Value the Marginal.”

And so this Trump v sacred cooperative economics
culture-war continues,
polyculture v monoculture,
yanging our way toward climate apocalypse
rather than a 2020 healing win/win yin revolution.

Trump advocates
“Enhance Your Location”
autonomously owned for personal profit.
Holmgren invites us to
“Obtain a [cooperative win/win] Yield”
sufficient for ego and eco-empowering resilience.

Trump, Get the [EgoCentric-AnthroCentric] Word Out”
so philanthropic Atlas,
bearing the messianic suffering of Earth,
now degenerates into self-glorifying President Narcissus.
Holmgren, “Apply SelfRegulation and Accept Feedback.”

Trump, “Fight Back.”
Holmgren, “Integrate Rather than Segregate.”

Trump, “Deliver the Goods,” as fast as possible.
Homgren, “Use and Value Renewable Resources
and Services,”
cooperatively managed by left-hemisphere’s natural secularity
and right-hemisphere’s sacred integrity,
economic ecology.

Trump, “Contain the [personal checking account] Costs.”
Homgren, “Catch and [public regeneratively] Store Energy,
nutrition,
non-violent communication,
wealthy health care of planet,
people,
plants.

Trump, “Have Fun” making more wealth-acquiring
colonizing
win/lose deals.
Holmgren, “Produce No Waste,”
which sounds a bit left-hemisphere Victorian
and purist,
maybe even ideological,
to a Trumpian,

But, is originally intended
to return a cooperative messiah leadership profit
to reconsider not not ZeroSum geometrics
may also become biometric
polypathic-polyphonic
Zero ZenSouls
of Yang/Yin
Left/Right timeless
health/wealth Tao

Which seems like a better place to end
than the Conservative Science
of Making the Trumpian ShortTerm
Win/Lose Deal.

Cultures,
including business cultures,
and democratic public sector cultures,
are either multiculturally healthy
or monoculturally pathological,
or somewhere in-between
integrity and audacious mendacity.

Presidential Comedians

I hear in the Ukraine
there’s a comedian
with no prior political experience
who may become their new President.

I wonder
they did not hear
we tried this model in the U.S.
a couple years ago

With predictable tragic/comedic results
not the least bit friendly
to public multicultural health
sold out
to support feudal monoculturing wealth
of not so funny kleptocrats.

The Naked Emperor Intervention

Oh my goodness!

I was just thinking about Erik Erikson,
psychoanalyst and essayist,
and his social analysis thing
about the U.S.
stuck in perpetual competitive
in-grown
culture-ungrown adolescence.

And Erikson suddenly reminded me of one of my dreams last night.

When The Donald
and a few black-suited security robots
visited AllSouls sanctuary.

I was singing in the choir
to the choir
as white-privileged usual.

But, when he slurped in
our ecofeminist minister
invited him to “Grow up!”

“Stop acting like a junior high
military school bully.
Let go of the golf clubs and take up surfing.
Have more fun
without passing your unpaid bill on
to already unhappy
un-privileged
depreciated ungreat over-populations.
Go back to private life.
Learn how to actively love
and healthily entertain
your own family
with Win/Win non-violent communication games
and organic garden planning
and integral Permaculture Design practices,
and cooperative ownership,
and compassionate self-management.
Try appreciating (not depreciating)
some health/wealth organic farming property.”

“Go back to school
and learn some basic Win/Win community health-organizing techniques
for non-violent resilient communicating
with what you say
and what you listen to
and what you do
and what you choose not to do
still matters to EarthTribe’s future healthy outcomes.”

“Stop pretending to be a Win/Lose adolescent
still trying to remember your Win/Win hopes and dreams
when you were still in your EarthMother
gasping for your first in and out rebalancing breath.”

“I am not your disappointing mother!
We are not your emotionally neglectful and inaccessible parents.
Stop punishing us
for not worshiping the ground
your Win/Lose ZeroSum soul walks on.”

“Do something that might make us want to worship the ground
we walk on compassionately together.”

Then the security robots started snickering
right there in our Green AllSouls Sanctuary.
And then Donald did too
as he turned around to actually blush
(who knew!)
and a bit less slurpily exit,
just like a teenager
slouching out
almost the way he came in,

Except smiling through his blushing Win/Lose eyes
not just his Loseconomic/Losecologic
health-depreciating
critical-noneventful fake-smile mouth.

Making America Grungy Again

Cynicism
grows from anthropocentric roots

As Narcissism
grows from cynical Lose/Lose
trampling our Win/Win EarthTribe opportunities
in over-marching
uneconomically smart
unecologically naive
stomping bully boots.

What the USSR Military-Terrorist Party
learned the hard way,
their Russian mafia metamorphosis
has learned a simpler
continuing kleptocratic way:

When plundering and raping your own people
and Earth’s international climate of active nutritional hope,
it is easier
and less transparent
to not have the unfortunate responsibilities
of actual
factual RealTalk
and RealWalk governing service provision

Like developing robust health and climate care systems
and building safe railroads and bike paths
and viable water and sewer systems
and healthy soil
and potable water supplies
and breathable air
and not quite so yang-fired up
win/lose competitive capital hoarding
amongst just us anthro-centric plutocrats.

Would that Apprentice Donald
had stayed private mafia likewise
rather than making America grungy again.

Sinister v Golden Shadows

Not showers; shadows.

Yin speaks,
murmurs really

Talking GoldenShadow
whispering warmly
wetly
hypnotically
fascinatingly
in my left ear.

Notice:
In 2011-12
Bill Plotkin wrote

“Sinister Shadow, projected:
Donald, president of the United States,
refers to the Soviet Union
as ‘the Evil Empire’…
and actually believes this is true.”

True of all 2019 federations,
integrities,
synergy,
healthy wealth,
cooperative and competitive gestalts
he cannot LeftBrain-RightWing win
control over their losses
by narcissistically bullying
his own integral sacred RightBrain co-operative economy
hosting empowering gestalt co-ownership,
LeftBrain tasty satisfying research licks
while listening to RightBrain warm wet whispers.

What President Donald fails to first and last term notice,
RightBrain feels
EgoSubjects need Evil Empire bullying experience
to know other Evil Empires
when they LeftBrain see them
and intuitively Lose/Lose feel them
Right inside green cooperative health potentialities

Whispering integrity’s promise
despite sinister non-golden ruling shadows
projecting out to Eastern ancient bodhisattvas
and back to future Western Win/Lose dominance
projecting messianic capitalistic anthrocentrism
RightWing deforesting Earth again.

GoldenShadow rules against kleptocratic bad economic behaviors
divesting of emerging non-violently communicating global WinWin
counter-enculturing cooperative manners,
Namaste integrity
Left with Right
Ego secular dominance with EcoSacred prominence,

Golden Rules whispered
out of my left ear
to avoid ringingly offensive behavior
WinLeft/LoseRight trending toward RedLose/GreenLose
Ego/Eco dis-integrity double-binds,
degeneration where regenerative politics
was Earth’s original warm wet whisper
floating between overshadowing winds
greeting undershadowing waters

Which,
for this ZeroZone Zen-Taoist,
speaks through YangLeft/RightYin nondual bilaterally integral listening
for warm, wet wombed
Golden Yang/Yin co-operating Shadows
co-passioning Ego/Eco health-systemic
private and public
identity and solidarity win wins

So,
Cooperatively owned and managed
healthy GestaltParadise
is my non-sectarian
non-partisan
non-violent communication game
of mental/spiritual-health optimization,
best played
just the Golden opposite of Sinister Donald’s bully threats
and violently mono-kleptocratic
most cynical threatening promises
of further Lose/Lose bad health and climate un-care–
redSinister fear-mongering v greenGolden co-passionate
planting and harvesting.

Which is about as anti-Christian
and anti-re-ligion
and anti-integrity
and anti-healthy/wealthy families,
anti-domestic through extended RightBrain holonic gestalts
emerging healthy LeftBrain-RightMind bodies
experiencing wealthy RightBrain polypathic health
as any
and every
one EgoIdentity’s optimal green/red wealth

Could possibly NotHealth/NotWealth West/East climate pathology
project beyond a whisper
in 2019
heading for 2020 ReVolutioning Re-Ligious HealthService Integrity
non-sectarian
non-partisan
non-violent
GoldenRule globally cooperative.

Wait A Minute!

Did I hear that wrong?

On my way for another appointment
with the vampire bleeding Quest,
big stage conversations on the radio
travel way too fast
for me to stay tuned in
at my normal liberal-conserving pace.

A single new mom
is surprised to learn about herself.
Her post-parted mother self
is less excited about getting back to work
out in the “real world.”

Wait a minute!
When did the real nurturing home environment
become the unreal world?

Back when most of us were serfs
and slaves,
shipping clerks
and slap-happy farmer families,
wasn’t family life cultural realness?
And outside employment
our unreal
mechanistic crazy ant-nestedness?

When and why did that turn
right side down?

Then she argued,
without waiting for slow to learn me,
against those who blame the childcare victim
by challenging employers AND employees
to do better
balancing work and home life
with bi-transcendent presence.

She finds this adds undue bilocation pressure
on parents to find ever more efficient
and effective employee-parent balancing acts
in multi-tasking lack of fully engaged bicameral presence.

We need systemic change,
she says,
although I fear that’s what Donald Trump would also say,
in another UnReal Wounded World’s competitive runaway favor.

Wait a minute!
Don’t throw out the new-balancing baby
with our dirty economic laundry water!
Don’t argue against Ego/Eco balance needed
to embrace, again,
healthy Cultural Balance.

A culture so out of balance
that competitive Win/Lose economies
now monopolize our encultured RealWorld,
and cooperative Win/Win parent/child empowerment
has become privatized UnReal Healthy CounterCulture.

Then, less than a minute later,
Republican spokespersons
described President Trump as vindicated
by Mueller’s executive report
finding insufficient information to prove collusion
with Russia
and/or obstruction of justice
within America.

Wait a minute!
Is no proof of colluding with a violent
totalitarian
kleptocratic regime
threatened by our flagging healthy transparent democratic culture
and cooperative Win/Win mutual empowerment,
really vindicating
an out-loud vindictive plutocrat
too smart to go to Vietnam
and too slick to campaign for principles of un-commodified love and integrity
rather than against recession of pathological hate and mendacity?

First, he said Russia
was helping Hillary in the voting booths
of 2016.

Then, when it became clear some foreign agency
was trying to help him by hurting her,
He said it wasn’t his good buddy Putin
or his Allies.

Then, when it became clear
it was Kremlin-sponsored interference,
He said, repeatedly, No Collusion!
because his campaign knew absolutely nothing
about anything
(which, out of context, sounds plausible).

Then, when it became clear
his campaigners did meet with Russian representatives
offering to do the political nasty
to Hillary,
He said, just “No Collusion!”
without qualifiers.

Then, when it became clear
the Trump campaign had nothing to say
about having met, without reporting, foreign agents
involved in dirty propaganda tricks
in U.S. media markets,
He still said only “No Collusion!”

But, wait a minute!
Now we have been asking
why wouldn’t a patriotic nationalist leader
true-blue military industrially empowered
not jump out of his white privileged skin
to be the first to squeal on the bad bully guys
for playing mean loser-take-all
disempowering undemocratic politics?

Wait a minute!
Short of transparently unveiling how the Trump campaign
proactively attempted to let everyone know
these hostile actions taken
against the integrity of our democratic electoral system
for RealWorld informed voters,
how is No Collusion! (probably)
sufficient to vindicate
some nationally elected leader of a wounded democracy
apparently intent on breaking all Ten Cooperative Commandments
as shamelessly as possible?

Wait a minute!
What happened to obstruction of healthy restoring-trust
bicameral justice?

By the time I returned home
to my RealWorld,
I was already exhausted
trying to keep up with
a patriarchally privileged
Win/Lose
UnReal
left-unmindful dominant brain
right-mind suppressed
with monoculturing
colonizing
secularizing
privatizing
narcissistic bullying intent.

I’ll be alright though…
Just give me a minute.

Kleptocracy

I’m reading this book about germs and guns and steel
and pre-history
and human history,
predators and prey,
and people praying they won’t be predatored.

You know,
light bedtime reading.

So, this guy who wrote the book…

No, not the Daniel Quinn thing.
Quinn thinks the beginning and end of our nutritional civilization story
is food production.
He forgets we can also hear cooperative health
and overly-rabid pathologies,
like CEOs calling “bleed the poor to feed those already too rich”
“tax cuts”.

I mean,
I guess they are tax cuts
if you happen to be in the top 20% US income bracket,
but that seems to miss the healthier democratic point
that Lower 80% Lives Matter Too.

No, not Quinn,
it is this younger guy,
Jared Diamond,
who probably never even met Thomas Merton.

Diamond mentions “kleptocracy”
where I would have used “plutocracy”
or “aristocracy”
rather than “democracy”
but this sounded too kleptomanic
to nutritiously feed integrity
of national health
and personal
and family
and non-elite wealth.

So I had to look up this kleptocracy word
to see if it might be the economist’s view
of the political scientist’s view
of plutocracy.

And, sure enough,
here it is,
right, but feeling very wrong,
on dictionary.com:
“A government or state in which
those in power exploit national resources
and steal”

This sounds familiar
from the Declaration of Independence,
in which the original USA forefathers
informed the British aristocracy
that we are all done
with the stealing of natural and human resources
thing they called “taxes” and “fees”
and the white male property owners
(including slaveowners)
called tribute
and extortion.

Meanwhile I was listening to the Cohen testimony
about some plutocratic kleptocrat
racist extortionist
buying and selling his white privileged way
into our way too WhiteHouse
extolling the unabashed value of WinLose capitalism,
so long as those born into “Win” households
remain unfettered from their colonizing
and extorting
and racist
and homophobic
and xenophobic lack
of any semblance
of traditional Christian virtues
or Islamic virtues,
or Buddhist virtues,
or Taoist virtues,
or Hindu virtues,
or Jewish virtues,
or democratic constitutional well-being
and prosperity virtues.

So, there you go,
I’ve already learned my new word for this plutocratic day
and kleptocratic nightmare.

Who knew?
We have words for everything
someone might ever need
to slice and dice
and serve up,
like food production
to grow less healthy
uncivilized undemocracies.
