NonPlatitude Attitude

They say I need too much to keep a positive young-yang attitude, More and deeper soul, higher sacred grace of gifted gratitude. So do I often feel, except privileged they feel too little to let go of supremely negative yin karma, bad win/lose memories with empty secular calculations of capital investment values for dark-earned platitudes, bottom-line capitalist colonialist conquering informed bad-news sells assumptions, autocratic nihilations and kleptocratic political disempowering narcissistic presumptions. My internal social-psychologist might observe: Those StraightWhiteMale privileged hate me because I am fat or gay or brown or green or grey While my external eco-political analyst retorts: I am merely fat and grey and green and gay because patriarchal capitalist anthropocentric supremacists have always hated multiculturally co-empathic, re-empowering intentioned, co-enlightening experienced, me We say our mediated verbal and unmediated nonverbal messages are curious and lusty, and sometimes too monoculturally untransformed musty, about dark red mysterious negatives And these same negative narratives sell papers and health and safety products and people and planetary organic peace resources and international technology war discourses As entertaining freak commodities, foreign and fresh blood and flesh, alien hearts and minds and deviantly dark sexual bodies for sale and/or rent by the consumer minute, and/or predative hour, and/or public unfree eight-hour market day, and/or satiated 24-hour day and night, profit exhausted calculating week, monthly cash acquisition trends, yearly fiscal survivalist reports with lifetime planned expiration, with and without remaining depreciated redemption, and potential return investment, values, misvalues devalues disvalues revaluations Depending on calculated balance/imbalance of positive/negative karma evaluation trends, Relationships of attachment/detachment investment/divestment memories They say I want too much unmediated compassion, noticed public and private health co-passions, commercially accessible gospel messages, good redemptive democratic empowerment news, enlightened cooperative values To not support our negative over-sold Yang attitude, secular monoculturing space StraightWhiteMale diseducated and yet still verbally privileged for ungifted apartheid platitudes So we also may yet quietly hear we need too much ***** to keep a positive yang attitude More yinternal and deeper souled, regeneratively steeped in richer values for deep healthy sacred grace Now time and Here space of Earth-gifted un-ownable unmediated goodnews gratitude.
