False Prophets

Disciples: How will we know True from False Prophets? Teacher: You will cooperatively discern them by their polyculturing love. When does fear that disasters are becoming too relentlessly true, masquerade as anger that such events and facts and trends must not be true, conspiracies of over-powering elites? Fear and anger are bipolar opposites and, more importantly, are dipolar points of paranoia's contrasting equivocations. Fear strikes inward while anger lashes out. In-between lies double-binding denial that the other could become a deconstructive co-motivator, a partner in paranoia's past crimes against reality not faced straight-forwardly, with autonomous power and sufficient courage and loyalty to those who have already been hurt, and continue hurting, by terror and pain violence and degenerative disintegrative mayhem. Are deniers of bad news responsible for what they say and therefore free to speak their responsibility for economic and political and ecological realities they are psychologically compelled to deny, especially through compulsively loud, sometimes violent, repetition? Are those who are confused and enmeshed in their fear-constructed worlds responsible for their anger-mongering on bad days, anger management on better days, tendencies? How responsible could truth terrorists be while maligning the minds, and sometimes vulnerable bodies, of those who speak hard to hear histories, threatening ever more violence and terror across landscapes and climates of one's own lifetime, one's own people, family and allies, kin? Early interventions, exorcisms of fear and anger power are most effectively performed by wise parents, listening mentors seldom available to rampant waves of ill-developed paranoia, rooted in alternative angry and distorted fact-telling, xenophobic conspiracy constituents of pretend historical facts. How do we respond to our neighbors who are also angry deniers of inconvenient facts? Alien AngerBuilders unwilling to speak truths to further paranoia producing prophecies? Bad news will repeat and grow unless we learn cooperation's RightBrain creations co-governing inductive truths of mentor more powerfully inter-relational than pathological climates and internal landscapes of dis-membering empty-nonevents. We have been born into this time of immigrant-identified and threatened crisis unwilling to repent unskilled to Right with Left reweave, Earth's eco-native Commons Spirits ecological nature-power with economic cooperative-nurturing powersharing, Golden Rule multiculturally co-committed to further growing with each other, to not perish in a self-paranoid silo of double-binding terror. Imagine these conspiracies dis-owning you, belonging within no alien other, and denials of past and on-coming events and facts magically evaporate this night because of our dreaming healthy futures we will cooperate together even through this most patriarchal Father's Night, committed to ecosystemically reconnect FalsoEgo with TrueEco Left with Right co-mentoring mental health ego/eco-centering double-binding wealth of cooperatively loving co-arising opportunities less hopeless bound by LeftBrain dominant denials of RightBrain fear-taught conspiracies, cognitive-affective learned dissonance, entropic-chaotic dis-ease. Paranoid denial double-binds are empowered by negative-fueled criminalization, violent attention, abusively relentless shaming response, absence of listening through Basic EcoCentric CoPresence asking faithful questions more than providing loving answers, trusting through this deep ecology listening journey mental illness faithfully listening with searching depths of self-loving therapies, co-healthing allies, internal co-mentors co-messianic Bodhisattva Warriors of and for peace, health's understory for cooperatively therapeutic ego/eco-justice. Denying the right to publish those who deny the rights and wrongs of ecologists, ecotherapeutic analysts, forecasters, truth-tellers of pathological unweaving health-assurance trends, to speak and listen with and to and for and of us, our cooperative global polyphonic potential together is not a denial of free truth-telling speech, because confusion between True and False Prophets cannot lead to anything other than conspiracy fears and angry unfreely shouted untruths. Giving ego-manic mental illness a microphone for spreading contagious fears and anger especially among those already vulnerable, troubled adolescents and children, abused and shamed and hurt and lectured-to adults of cooperative WinWin ignorance, ensnared in monoculturing monopoly games of Win to Lose LeftBrain supremacist neglect. Rather than giving my ecopolitical microphone to further inflame unskilled unfree to speak Truth competitive marketers of Anger and Fear Management as our best autonomously suboptimizing hope, I find it better to broadcast contagious cultures of ecotherapeutic wealth, ego/eco-centering abundant health.
