2020 Constitutional Rapture

Alan Simpson, a Wyoming Republican, not known for his socialist ways nor his sacred communion means of public discourse, cried out in our Great Dark Night of white bold and climate cold fragility, "Money's dominance over politics isn't merely one problem of many our country faces. It is the problem!" Perhaps neither Wyoming Republicans or Alan Simpson would mind this contextual paraphrase, Capitalism's competitive LeftBrain cultural and educational systemic dominance against healthy multicultural empowering politics isn't merely one complex problem of many win/lose communication complications our 2020 Species faces, Yet does not RightBrain see and hear as absence of WinLeft/WinRight cultural and climate intersectional wisdom. We have become LeftBrain predative partisan capitalists; THE win/lose, degenerating toward lose/lose economic-political climate problems of either/or partisanship, religious fundamental bipolar creeds of elitist bad faith, tolerant of secularized apartheid Devoid of sacred active win/win communion for organic ecological theology or theologically health-metaphoric muse-metaphonic music-polyphonic harmonic metapathic resonant polypathic resiliently co-empathic co-passionate ego/ecology. All of which strangely reduces Alan Simpson's original version to a summary democratic constitution condensed milk of RightBrain both/and flexible resonance urgently, yet more warmly, seeking health/wealth rememory regrowing out and in climate cultures toward expanding win/win global family.
