Have you seen a Rockwell 1950's Lemonade Wars?
Two girls, both white of course,
dressed for YoungRepublican success
scowling at each other on a pristine deserted street
of the tree-lined rich suburban variety,
arms folded across their angry
relentless middle-class chests,
shoulders hunched for their LoseLose anger battle.
Each stands before her lemonade stand,
across the street from one other,
each with an escalating sign that originally says 10 cents,
but with a bold line across it,
replaced below with a somewhat smaller 5 cents,
also crossed out,
followed by a 2 cents price war notice,
about which the entire neighborhood apparently would not give 2 cents
to get aggressively involved.
Would this be less surprising if we were looking at two white boys?
How about two brown-skinned boys?
Does the humor have more of an edge to it?
Or perhaps it's no longer funny at all.
Maybe more about just another racist stereotype
about not having two suburban cents between them,
about what is intelligent
Do you think it more likely two girls might have formed a cooperative?
Replaced their two tables into one larger street presence,
Faced their two signs both up and down the street
to better alert oncoming traffic seeking therapy,
splitting their take at the end of a lovely day
with and between more convivial customers,
rather than aiming themselves across the street at each other.
weapons of mutual traumatic disdain,
heading toward long-term economic
and politically disempowering contempt.
But, probably less likely for two boys from the 50's and 60's.
Today, I'm not so sure.
Perhaps boys and girls, and all between,
are learning a healthier,
way of doing the cooperative math,
finding profit through ecopolitical interrelationships.
We have feminist psychology and therapy and medicine
and theology and history and sociology
and probably anthropology and neurology, for all I know.
Research and theorem proofing and disproofing
more likely to unfold through networking circles
of mutual refolding nurture
than competitive marching in bought-and-sold squares
of irrational spiritual distinctions
without seminal natural difference.
New Economics is Feminist Peace-Restorative Economics,
about cooperatively nurturing healthy nutritional co-investments
rather than WinLose dyspeptic high risk
divestment competition games.
So, why is New Economics not called Feminist EcoPolitics?
Maybe it is, but not where I live
and not where I have non-womanist read,
but I still hope to see more cooperative non-violent lemonade stands
across suburban and urban and rural divides,
blending gender divides to make lemonade out of,
well,... whatever you have of potential nourishing value,
discarding over-heated presumptions of gotta-have competition,
to pour out equivalent power-assumptions of cooperative ecopolitics,
where Golden Rules apply transgenderally
as Golden Ratios reply transculturally cooperative algorithms,
producing Golden Elixirs of inclusive consumer-producer satisfaction;
This day we will have done well
and not so unlikely
divesting StraightWhiteMale to hell.
