Green Peace Resonance

At first we had traumatic stress just being born and later shock of near death, physical and mental, natural and spiritual, lack of health and unsafe, messy wealth. Then traumatic cultural stresses grew up into a global syndrome of sad neglect toxic fueling chronic depression, multicultural repression caste suppression, cognitive and affective double-binding dissonant multigenerational dissociation. Then post-traumatic historic stress syndrome swept up panic attacks, disabling shell shock, invasive violent cultural shlock, long-term victimization locks, criminalization ad hoc legislated abominations, violent domestic and international monoculturing schools of semi-thought through flowing imaginations creeping toward chronic creepy anxiety, lose/lose de-nihilistic codependency, mutually assured destruction in bloodless micro-annihilating pools. Now we have pre-traumatic herstoric stress syndrome for ever more biocultural pathology in internal and external climates, venues, lyrics and lessons, narratives of unraveling devolutions inevitably heavy self-implicating scales In-between disempowering monoculturalism monopolistic monotheism ego-privileged anthro-supremacism, economic ecological lack of co-invested empathy, And enlightened EarthPatriotic resonance anxiously anticipating polycultural revolutions sustaining robust health care ecosystemic wealth. Why does it matter if we sing or dance or call "Make American Trauma Again" pre- or post-suffering the greatest response of all? Isn't trauma of unrelenting win/lose competitions, of StraightWhiteMale aggressive monoculturalism, mono-egotheism, monopolistic theology, a culturally devolving climate trend? Inside and outside, before and after traumatic birth and death of isolated individuals swimming in a hegemonic demonizing atmosphere of win/lose capitalist self-defeating wounds at risk of overwhelming all empowering lovely acts and pre-post-enlightened passionate hearts For resilient ecotherapeutic stories of positive multiculturally cooperative green peace resonance.
