Reclusive Accountabilities

I am sick of excuses to avoid responsibility
and I am, today, sick with excuses to avoid responsibility
with "I'm just a mortal human. I make mistakes.
I judge situations and relationships,
assess potential risks to care and nourishing choices
badly sometimes."

I do. And so do you.

At the same time,
I applaud mutually transparent accountability
to always do our best,
to apply Golden Rules as broadly stretching out across time and species,
until no moment escapes our WinWin ecoconscious
YES!
to totally sharing accountability for
my/our judgments,
communication,
my/our relationships,
for both positives and negatives.
Yes to sharing accountability for my/our environments and cultural climates,
my/our days,
my/our generations,
my/our species,
my/our choices of entertainment and amusement,
my/our realities and imaginations,
my/our judiciary system,
my/our Police Officers
and attorneys
and judges
and potentially useful WinWin ecopolitical leaders
and, of course,
loving parents
co-mentoring breathing in
as breathing out together with both ears nondually co-arising Basic Attendance.

Responsible,
doing the best I can each moment,
mindful behavior choices
are nourished by low-stress environments,
and their wise and good-humored caretakers.

When law enforcement is culturally more important
than peace enforcement,
When the criminalization of humanity is culturally acceptable
ecopolitical harm through coldly-calculated bullying,
repressive intimidation,
then we are all entrapped in mutually-paranoid terrorism and LoseLose scenarios,
correctional strategies guaranteed to bring the worst possible outcomes
for everyone,
about which absolutely no one is really better than miserable.

Criminal-prejudice is no more politically, economically, ecologically healthy
than is racism.
In fact, for many U.S. people of color,
racism feels a whole lotta like presumption of abusive/neglectful criminal-intent.
Paranoia is this same presumption, writ large,
across our entire BusinessAsUsual cultural climate of pathology.

Peace enforcement
and the full balanced ecoconscious humanization of this species
require us to accept what we might see and hear
and feed ourselves,
in positive healthy ecopolitical days and nights
as positively incarnated Reality Shows
where everybody actually wins what they most need in the end,
or at least more than they had,
where there are no real losers needed to make a good wholesome story,
positive youtube videos are for every mind and body's WinWin future.

Law enforcement
and the nihilistic further commodification and criminalization of humanity
does not nourish well-rounded healthy regenerations
to build up who we ecotherapeutically are
and where we are headed together,
like cynical negative Reality Shows,
and sociopathic social media messages
of violence and mayhem begets more of same.

We have positive Selfies and social media stars
and there are also negatives.
But, we hope our political leaders
and police officers
and judicial systems
are feeding more on the positive
and not frothing at the mouth so much
in actively dissonant mistrusts of collective culturally degenerative paranoia.

We have a profound ecopolitical choice to make,
to invest in positive health assumptions of Golden Rule good faith
until proven otherwise,
not just strongly, prejudicially, and malignantly suspected,
and we too often invest in negative social and eco-political poor health choices,
news and interpreted events
as entertainments and grist for ruminating imaginations 
and then paranoid realities,
LoseLose pathologies,
absence of faith in a more integrative regenerative future.

We can choose to learn our way toward more robust Climate Health,
or go this other way, 
with armed humorless paranoids
disguised in peace officer uniforms,
really out to get themselves yet another victim
of their anger and disappointment with humanity's
lack of self-respect and responsibility,
including their own sometimes
when they really are not doing the best they can
in a struggling situation.
Or, are they?

Those who feast on negative media and gaming entertainments,
bad-environment choices,
maybe shouldn't take the lead on determining what is commercially-viable news
about challenging and suffering events and cultures
and religions,
and economic and political systems,
and ecological systems 
still gasping for more positive good-news health
and less sardonic nihilism,
and paranoia.

Responsibility meets our levels of accountability
for trust and empathy
and active listening and noticing possibilities to minimize victimization,
criminalization,
revenge,
stealth and duplicity,
anger and fear,
mistrusts growing into raging distrustful paranoid hatreds
of individual magical fragile sacred people,
and families nurtured by and in and with Beloved Communities,
we have too often reduced to vocational labels
associated with diatribes of prejudicial disrespect,
not understanding victim-creators suffer too,
for what they do and what they have failed to do,
as how they are
in this too-toxic environment.

If you cannot find any compassion for your accusers,
your nay-sayers,
your deniers,
your bullies and fascists and terrorists
for their ridiculous LoseLose scenarios
begging for a good laugh,
rather than satirical character assassinations,
stepping out of WinWin hopes and faiths for health and help and hope,
then you are still looking
for how this that has happened to you
could move further toward WinWin ecopolitics,
more opportunities for health with less risk of pathology,
as am I,
while a paranoid white male Police Officer
continues shouting through my screen door
about my highly over-rated sense of shameless disregard for others.

Maybe he just needs more sleep,
better meds.
Who knows?
I wish they wouldn't let him out loose with a gun
by himself,
he's scaring me and my kids
with his humorless lack of hearing
and therefore compassion for others
who probably also could use more sleep,
more vacation,
less negative recreations.

Dillen's Continuing DMV Adventures

I wrote a sad but true urban legend called “Dillen and the DMV” last week.
Here follows an update.

Background Review:

One of my health care employees, Dillen, has wicked ADD, borderline intelligence, not qualifying for disability supports, which are few 
and those few minimal at best anyway, 
but also challenged by things like getting to work on the right day at the right time,
challenged by processing verbal communications,
whether written or spoken more slowly than Business As Usual pace and pattern would permit,
challenged with struggles to establish and maintain healthy positive social relationships,
much more challenged by intimacy,
so often settling for companionship that does not foster mutually therapeutic co-mentoring,
challenged by his felt urgency for speed while driving.

In “Dillen and the DMV” I write to the DMV Commissioner,
the Chief States Attorney, and the Attorney General
about this series of unfortunate events.

Update:

I hear back from the DMV.
This letter patiently reviews Dillen’s multiple infractions.
Two involve having others in his car with marijuana or concomitant paraphernalia,
(why not just “supplies” or “equipment”?)

“Marge, did you order the paraphernalia for the copier machine yet?”
Word choices in the public sector often distract me.

but Dillen was not charged with driving stoned,
because he wasn’t.
He was the designated driver for his “friends”
who did not have their Medical Marijuana cards on them.

Then there was the time he might have been going 35 or 40 and hit black ice,
totaled his car
which ended upside down,
for which the local police felt they must issue some form of moving violation,
after all, we do have those towing charges
and the need for all those emergency folks to stand out in the freezing ice storm,
and there are these two drug-related violations on his driving record
so he was probably stoned anyway, right?

And then there was this time,
when Dillen was pulled over
ostensibly for speeding,
but really this was about driving on a suspended license
without a Work Permit
which he didn’t have because
(1) DMV didn’t have a current address to send him his notice,
so he didn’t know he was driving on a suspended license, and
(2) no one had told him,
including the Police Officer who pulled him over,
there is this Work Permit thing
which would have covered his butt 
on this particular adventure in high speed suburban crime.

However, this letter from the DMV Director of Programs leaves out some details,
as does my summary.
Then the Program Director reassures Dillen and I of her concern for Dillen’s mess,
which someone else might have called unemployment 
and yet another round of couch-surfing homelessness,
but CT’s pesky State Statutes wouldn’t allow her to refund his application fee,
and, besides,
the application form says right on there that it won’t be refunded
even if the application is rejected

Apparently for reasons that remain in the shadow of the public eye.
My two page letter was too subtle for government comprehension
of our own collective abuse and neglect.
She confirms the DMV does have explicit standards for rejecting applications,
including more than three moving violations,
but fails to apologize for designing her Program’s communication plan
to be sure that disproportionately young urban minority low-income males
with mental health and self-medication issues
would be fleeced of their last $100
ripped out of their hungry pockets
to apply for a Work or Education Permit
that State Statutes prohibit her,
so sadly,
from handing out like mother’s milk to a starving baby.

She also does not speculate about why State Prosecutors Dillen has met
are all apparently unaware of stipulated public, but effectively private, criteria for rejecting
pricey applications.

She also fails to mention what she might do to correct this situation
of not providing transparent public information
in a way that allows respected residents of the State of CT
to make a fully informed decision about wasting their money
by further investing in the future miserable outcomes
of shoddy DMV Programs.

She also does not explain where we,
the tax-payers of CT,
were when concerns about the need for job security,
especially for those in hard-to-employ populations,
where we were when needs for food and housing,
healthy wants for continuing education and training,
including the need for continuing education and training,
including the need for reasonable transportation,
even in the winter,
where we all were when these were not being weighted sufficiently against risks, 
allowing licensed drivers with complex histories 
to continue on their journey
the best they can.

Personally, I know Dillen responds much better to a warm hug,
a patient smile,
and expressed appreciation for continuing to improve,
and encouragement to continue with work
and sticking with a healthy daily routine,
which does not include speeding,
even if everyone around him is racing to nowhere good.

Yesterday I was mesmerized for several hours by a TV series
“Underground”
about the Railroad prior to the U.S. Civil War.
A champion anti-slavery attorney
confesses to his Northern wife,
as a younger attorney he used to settle estates,
including estates of slave-holders,
which sometimes led to the awkwardness of arranging for resale of people,
families,
often resulting in the tearing of children from their mothers’ arms,
and other similar heinous crimes against nature
and mental health.

For some reason
I kept thinking about that clerk at DMV,
reading Work Permit applications,
after depositing the enclosed nonrefundable $100,
looking at the high security publicly invisible list of reasons not to help
depressed people living mostly in their cars
have a modestly better chance at life,
as if what is a right for him or her
on his or her way to work and home again,
is a too luxurious privilege for a fragile at-risk criminal population,
enslaved by their need to self-propel their freedom futures.

Portraits of Racial Politics

“It is the custom of scholars when addressing behavior and culture to speak variously of anthropological explanations, psychological explanations, biological explanations, and other explanations appropriate to the perspectives of individual disciplines. I have argued that there is intrinsically only one class of explanation. It traverses the scales of space, time, and complexity to unite the disparate facts of the disciplines by consilience, the perception of a seamless web of cause and effect.”   Edward O. Wilson, Consilience: The unity of knowledge

How could interdependent politics,
studying effective/ineffective power in relationships and transactions,
in communication’s productive/unproductive exchanges,
in communion’s transubstantiations,
be an intelligently humane science
without also growing art-forms of imaginative expression?
evolving culture’s powerful articulations,
how best to constitute, contract, and behave together
toward daily through global social economic justice.

Political effectiveness is about control,
resources and rhythms of normative creation
favoring multicultural inclusiveness,
democracy of conjoining powers
to enrich future generations of Earth’s healthy prosperity.

Political relationships,
economic transactions,
ultimately support radically regenerate health trends.

The political evolutions of well-formed and reliably executed democracy
have become Favorite Sons of political scientists,
just as totalitarian monopolies of invested power
have become the scientist’s Straw Man for sociopathology
opposing mature polypathic political-economic powers
to effectively advocate socially therapeutic outcomes.

With this same normative assumption of political health science,
we evolve toward ever more inclusive
and therefore hopeful and healthy emergence
of cooperatively organized empathic trust
between political-economic cultural behaviorists.

The politics of healthy regenerative behaviors
unveil the arts and sciences of empathic trust
as dipolar contrasted to distrustful mutual immunity,
antipathy between individuals,
families,
subcultures,
tribes,
competing histories.

We emerge with a positively deviant cooperative political/economic culture
struggling against older pre-millennial WinLose Gaming assumptions
about this business of not only self-governing
but also WeThePeople governing
throughout an overpopulating Earth,
currently drawing too much energy to sustain a healthy home
for grandkids
and their extended genetic families
in the animal and plant ribonucleic kingdoms.

In Empathy and Democracy Michael E. Morrell critiques 
“Agonistic theories…
because they tend to reify conflict to the detriment of possible cooperation and do not adequately theorize why we should expect people to remain [loyal] adversaries rather than become enemies.” (pp. 194-5)

What is this difference between a political adversary and an enemy
if not continued respect for co-empathic possibilities for mutual trust
in more cooperative political outcomes
through a “consilience” of mutual subsidiarity.
We can learn to become grateful for adversaries
to produce a more optimally discerned outcome.
On the other hand,
if we succumb to monocultural supremacist political thinking 
as always and everywhere competitive WinLose strategics,
then our political choice of enemies for all “loser” roles and rules
precludes full maturation of a healthy cooperative democracy
for every economic body,
every political mind.

Shayla C. Nunnally
uses the language of trust and mistrust and distrust
to mine U.S. racial politics
(Trust in Black America: Race, discrimination, and politics).
Perhaps trust refers to the cognitive syllogism side of empathic feelings,
whether positive or negative,
as absence of trust appears
if and only if absence of empathy.
They co-arise nondually, to borrow from Buddhist Philosophy,
as thoughts have feelings attached,
and feelings manifest in thoughts, language of consciousness.

How might we pursue the art and science of politically empathic trust
given the historical predator v prey brand of slavery,
the hunting and gathering of dark-skinned people
supported by a Winners v Losers evolutionary enculturation history?

Cyrus Ernesto Zirakzadeh
(Social Movements in Politics: A comparative study, expanded edition)
rests political Identity-Formation Theory 
“on a simple assumption:
people’s actions are structured by deeply held beliefs.” (p. 240)
Perhaps nondual trust/beliefs with empathic/mutual feelings.

A relatively autonomous “non-elite” popular culture
drives political-economic participants
who become immersed in a movement culture.
A non-elite political-economic subculture
might be expected to also aspire to fulfill itself
as a movement culture,
from non-elite to co-elite,
or,
more radically,
a cooperative co-arising aspiration that thrills
and virally spreads
by co-opting elitist dissenters into active empathic-trust.

The cooperative optimization of future generations’ health and safety
is an ancient political-economic externally dialectical agenda,
apparently supported by regenerative ecosystemic evolving processes
across most, if not all,
living poli-economic systems.

In both Eastern and Western wisdom traditions
we find the feeling/belief,
that the political and economic systems of a society
are best judged by how well they govern themselves for those most vulnerable,
including the “non-elites” of this generation
but also children,
our future as global residents of Earth.

A cooperative turn to a level of multicultural and polypathic empathy-trust
seems to inevitably expand our Golden Rule
to explicitly include all life forms living,
not yet living,
and no longer living.

Here lies our cooperative political-economic dual destiny of discernment,
as “elites” actively listen to those speaking of non-elite empathic trust
that we are each predator/prey hybrids of mutual subsidiarity
evolving movements toward consilience of love
emerging Earth’s health-optimizing future.

for that matter]?"

"With Du Bois, 
his framing of African Americans as a unique social scientific opportunity

Dillen and the DMV

TO:  Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner, Chief States Attorney

FROM: Dillen Dye’s Employer

8/16/16

RE: Some apparent non-compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act; common courtesy, civil respect; freely accessible pursuit of health, happiness, and prosperity

I don’t know where the States Attorney Officers and the administrators of the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) were hiding when the Americans With Disabilities Act issued regulations protecting us from things like bullying, intimidation, failure to disclose information, discriminating to the disadvantage of those who have more than their fair share of disadvantages pursuing those values our Constitution explicitly mentions as meriting our mutual protection.

One of my employees now has a five year troubled history with Officers of Other People’s Peace and the DMV. The latest episode is a denial of his application for a Work Permit, submitted with a nonrefundable $100 application fee, which he can ill afford, especially given the just arrived denial of his request for the great privilege of driving himself to work during the duration of his currently suspended driver’s license.

How his license became suspended is a long and troubling history of miscommunication between DMV and State Attorneys who seem to assume it is their job to represent the healthiest interests of everyone in the State except the one resident they are currently fleecing, but also troubles between Dillen’s hyper-deficited mind and right foot.

A quick skim of the American With Disabilities Act might cause reasonable people to take the position that Dillen should either receive the Work Permit that the State Attorney told him he would get if he would simply bother to apply, or have his application fee refunded. After all it does seem difficult to justify he received fair value for his $100 investment in a public system that has at best ignored, and at worst messed with, his private system, getting through each day and night without further suicidal ideation.

This past May, the State’s Prosecuting Attorney was a surprisingly happy young person, probably not all that long a member of the Bar, and it was getting late in the afternoon on a perfectly lovely late Friday afternoon. She came close to begging Dillen to pay a bargain basement reduced moving violation fee of just $400 if he would just agree to cancel his date with the apparently beleaguered, and perhaps not in such a great mood, judge. In fact, if he would sign up for a guilty as charged notice going to the DMV, so they could suspend his license yet again, but not to worry because they would surely jump out of their collective skins to give him a free pass to drive to work and school whenever he needed, because after all we are all good people and we want those good things to be happening in your life, if he would sign up for this line of bullshit right now, she would knock off another $100 because she could see he was such a cooperative kinda guy and wouldn’t it be nice to get out of here and enjoy the rest of his day, if not maybe quite so much his life?

She didn’t mention any problem about now having 7 violations on his DMV record so investing $100 in the Work Permit application would be delusional, at best. She didn’t mention that AfricanAmerican 20-year-old Dillen, driving a beat-up looking van in a rather lavishly comfortable ecopolitical environment, had cars in front of him and behind him also going 45 mph, but apparently he was the only one unaware he was driving on a suspended license, because, after all, how could the DMV send him a notice through the mail that would actually get to him—although email would have most certainly worked—due to his nomadic ways.

So, yes, Dillen has more than three moving violations, but probably would not, if he had been told, upon his first Suspension, that he could apply for a Work Permit to drive despite Suspension. This was news to him, as he was about to begin his third Suspension, although he has yet to receive his first Suspension Notice.

Apparently no one, except perhaps the person whose digital signature appears at the bottom of the Denial?,  knows about this three strikes and you are out of a $100 non-refundable application fee. He saw no notice specifying possible reasons for denial. Nothing in red, or even black, ink saying: WARNING, If you have four or more moving violations do not waste your money!

Yesterday, Dillen had an appointment with yet another State Attorney. This, a few hours before receiving the denial notice from DMV. When Dillen told him that he was waiting to hear back from DMV about his application for a Work Permit, this Attorney too was remarkably sanguine, saying something like “Look, you have no DUI on your record, we want to get you on the road for work and school.” So they continued his case, hoping this latest Suspension would be over, license restored, and Dillen could move on, put this self-propelling mess behind him. 

Dillen, State Attorneys, and I are all surprised and disappointed to learn of this covert restriction on issuing Work Permits. And I am his employer. I believe you should give him his permit or at least refund his extorted application fee. 

Not to blow this out of all reasonable proportion, but to add larger and longer perspective, this denial of Dillen’s application for a Work Permit is only the latest episode in his five-year troubled history with driving safely and responsibly as part of his moving into independent adulthood project. Dillen’s level of sensory-neural challenges and his motivation to live a reasonably accommodated life, without intimidating-bullying Police Officers and inscrutable labyrinthine DMV communication issues, and fee  extortions that could not possibly pass any discriminatory effect legal challenge, are concerns we might all approach with better implemented concern and integrity.

Other than that, I hope you are having a blessed day.

Warmly,

Gerald Dillenbeck

Superior Courts of Ecological Justice

What evidence do we have that businesses receive financial as well as other nutritionally healthy benefits, 
by co-investing cooperatively within health-developing community cultures?

What are financially healthy benefits for cultural communities 
both internal to corporate identity, 
and environmentally external  to those who receive revenue in exchange for collateralized time of human health-regenerative value?

How do our polyculturally integral  nutrition-development trends,
competitively and cooperatively feed monocultural 
LeftBrain incorporated 
ego PlanB struggling with eco RightBrain PlanA 
wealthy truth as healthy-beauty? 

Polycultural cooperatives feeding monoculturally competitive and cooperative evolutionary economists of ecology,
of Earth’s considerable eco- and bio-systemic assets,
measured as healthy cooperative network exchanges
with (0)-sum investment bilateral balancing CQI sustainable health outcomes,
to date,
in fact always tautologically as ecologically DNA/RNA fractal-exegetical-original intent of Earth’s regenerative development,
where fractal-octave ecosystemic ionic-ergodic deductive metric prime natural truth
meets bilaterally symmetrical proportional bionic P =N(NP), as Yang=Yin.

As I look at competitive and cooperative business economies at play with my 20-year old incorporated, 
and adopted, 
and respected for usually doing his best son,
who is also one of my three part-time health-care certified employees,
I remember…

Your Honor, 
Dillen readily agrees with this Bloomfield, Connecticut, Police Officer,
he was driving normal flow-of-traffic 45 miles per hour along Mountain Road’s 25 mph zone.

Dillen also agrees, 
although he was not aware until this Officer informed him,
that he was driving an unregistered car 
that did not belong to him,
and doing this while on a suspended license.

I have evidence here from the DMV
this lapsed registration has been paid by Dillen’s father,
rather disorganized owner of the Honda Odyssey
Dillen was driving,
and now in good standing with DMV.

I also have evidence that the DMV has reinstated Dillen’s license to drive,
preferably more slowly,
after he paid his $175 reinstatement fee from said DMV,
which seems to have its hand out nearly as often as the Court System,
and Dillen now has active license standing with  this very hungry State.

Notice of Suspension was mailed both to the wrong place
to reach us at a time either Dillen or I lived in that West Hartford  home business place.
Dillen failed to give DMV change of address timely notice, 
also now updated
to prevent future failures to successfully communicate.

Speaking on his behalf,
as his employer of three years,
and as his often too-white Dad of 20 years,
I can confirm Dillen was on his way to my home
to deliver behavioral health care services,
for which he is certified by the Department of Developmental Services,
to benefit my 13-year-old girl with ADHD, cerebral palsy,
fetal alcohol syndrome.

Dillen also watches Daquan,
his brother,
here with us today,
who is paraplegic,
subject to sudden onset seizures,
incontinence,
and more well-planned tube-feedings.

Dillen is able to care for his brother
with more than sufficiently safe and healthy outcomes
for each of them
and for our family as a whole,
which I believe is the stuff of which healthy corporate-egos 
and communities
are cooperatively made.

As his proud redneck grandpa of a Dad,
perhaps it is also relevant to this Court’s interests
that Dillen,
despite chronically frustrating disabling ADHD, early-diagnosed,
despite learning and language skills testing 70-80,
rather than 70 and below,
where he would qualify for a richer vein of disability services,
Dillen,
after two years of no response at best,
of victimization by violations of ADA policies and procedures
at worst,
Dillen has found a part-time job bussing tables
two days per week,
so he can buy his own food,
continuing to avoid Food Stamp benefits,
for which he is financially qualified,
or would be,
if he were not working instead,
for which he needs a ride to and from Foxwoods casino
two days a week,
and therefore a continuing actively not-suspended license.

While I have no documentation,
last year,
before this violation notice was delivered into his hand
and heart,
and still-enculturing mind,
Dillen volunteered more than 20 hours of community service.

He was on his way from one of these community services,
on his way to my home,
following normal flow of traffic
through West Hartford, Connecticut,
then Bloomfield,
heading north,
when this my African American ADHD-self-labeling son,
not always both eyes straight ahead
and exercising sufficiently mature restraint on life’s gas pedals of BlackLivesMatter opportunity,
doing his best to both get where he needed to be,
but also doing his best 
to compete and cooperate
in an economy that often discriminates negatively punitive attention
in response to his heart-racing challenges 
of diverse internal and familial identities,
was signaled to pull over
by a Bloomfield Police Officer,
for driving 45 like everybody else,
in his 25 mph developmentally delaying speed zone.

Using my own son’s competitive v cooperative busyness
comprehending his own life in healthy v. toxic relationship
with his environment,
perhaps not my best case study to illustrate 
YangCompetitive and Yin’s more bilaterally cooperative
economic appositional ways
and means toward natural value.

All this,
when really you only want evidence for polycultural health CQI outcomes.

Do economic and political truth and beauty and justice,
somehow follow regenerative long-term health trajectories
of reasoned deductive logic?

Does not healthy justice
emerge best where truth as beauty,
BusinessAsUsual history and story
ecologically unfolds
coarising nonduality,
metaphysical reason
speaking regenerating seasons
of cooperative development?

Keeping America Safe

A prayer for God to bless America
is also a reminder of traditional political mindfulness,
basic awareness of our economic investments in security.

First, no one "keeps" this confederation of uniting states,
unless we let them.

Second, prayers for sustaining safety assume the U.S. is safe now,
and/or implies concern that we are at risk.
There are many ways to become ecologically
and economically
and politically
and culturally
and physically
and mentally
and spiritually safe and unsafe.
We are each on a continuum of health v pathology
as individuals,
as is each of our States,
as is this Nation as a whole ecopolitical system.

Third, "America" refers to two continents,
one to the north and one to the south.
A U.S. safety and health security measure could both be
and not be
appropriate health and safety policy
and procedure for this quartile of Earth.
It seems to me we are heading in an ecologically unraveling,
and therefore increasingly unsafe, direction,
more immediately for our coastal nations and, yes,
still somewhat united States.

Fourth, "safe" for and from what and why?
Traditional conservative minds tend to exegete the Preamble to the Constitution
and perhaps even the Declaration of Independence.
Here we read that we are united in healthy pursuits of happy prosperity.
We also read we are uniting with freedom
to articulate a multicultural relationship with God,
free of dominating,
power-over controlling religious-political constraints,
restraints,
and economic leverages or punishments.

Preferably no inquisitions for bowing to the East.
If we all did,
then God might see the humor of AnthroCentrists
bowing and worshiping toward each Others' rear ends;
Find it good and proper
and call us a full polyculturally wise day 
mutually inviting humility.

Does separation of religious from self-governance declarations and constitutions
intrinsically grow tension with our desire to be safe
for ecopolitical prosperity?
This was, and perhaps remains,
a radical social experiment,
in part because religious systems,
institutions of intended regenerative self-perpetuation
toward safe and healthy governance
throughout Time's eternities
is the nutritional stuffing of political powers over
and powers with,
powers under and powers without.

The multiculturing of a shared safe and healthy politically powerful Teleology
is not ecologically equivalent
is not educationally equivalent
to the dumbed-down secularization of U.S. society and culture.

We both under- and over-sell our political ecology of multi-enculturation
as purging ourselves of faith and empathic trust in each other,
faith in Earth's creative cooperative health and multigenerational sustainability;
Bleaching such faith out of public discourse,
especially public education,
and most especially out of deep listening-learning mindfulness
about our own uniting states of ecopolitical trust
and mistrust
and learned anthrocentric distrusts,
our positive faiths
and negative ego-ethnocentric prejudices
within our interior landscapes
and across the North and South American Natural Landscape
of a remarkably ecologically co-evolving, polyculturing, dynamic-revolving Earth.
Such science and education can only predict closed-system entropy,
while nature-spirit deep learning comprehends open-systemic co-empathic loves, integrities, nondual truths as symmetrical beauties,
multiculturing evolution of Time our regenerational transgenerational selves.

To keep the U.S. safe from absence of health
through ecological learning from past successes and mistakes,
to keep us healthy for future generations,
which is your priority?

1. Aiming deadly and toxic ballistics at whoever we currently consider aliens
and rabid infestations inflicting terror outside our own boundaries, or
2. Aiming health as ecopolitically cooperative policies and procedures
at the aliens and rabid infestations within our own skins,
and stated boundaries.

Prophets,
Medicine Men,
preachers and teachers,
shamans and seers,
saints and messiahs and boddhisatva warriors,
mystics and gurus,
even motivational speakers
and Anger Management therapists
throughout the history of languaged culture itself
have looked into our futures
within every color and multicultural creed
to remind us we will become positively known for our regenerational love,
our evolving capacity to cooperate, 
as generously and gratefully as ecopolitically possible,
until no monoculturing terrorist would choose to live in his lesser environment of fundamentalist exclusions of nurturing-fertile matriarchy,
such as that co-mentored with Gaia as Earth-BioSystemic EcoPolitical Intelligence,
Regenerative Health.

Our best health and safety American offensive for positive change on Earth
remains as always
a multiculturally integrative loving ecopolitical internal constitutional defense.

We already declared our interdependent political will to grow freedom
from supremacist nationalistic-religious tyrannies
against the good cooperative multicultural nutritional faiths of our co-evolving Elder Tribes.

We have already written a Constitution for co-arising nondual states of mutual-enlightenment,
for multicultural ecopolitical health and safety and prosperity outcomes.

We just need better practice.
Our lack of adherence to our own cooperatively shared nature-spirit traditional ideals
threatens further climatic
overly-competitive, ballistic distrust
and monocultural devolution, disarray, dissonance, decay.

Keeping Earth safe
may be a monotheistic mandate.
If so, we become one united state of being free
for further multicultural evolution of health
and globally inclusive climatic safety.

May our multiculturing God
continue to bless all our North and South Americans
to bless all our polyculturing healthy EarthTribes.

BiPartisan Dissonance

When oppositional cognitive dissonance deflects focus,
it tends to go back to when I deflected focus from her.
She sends me passive-aggressive messages,
bread crumbs leading back in time 
to where she began to feel alone,
marginalized,
siloed,
anxious.

If you don't want a sopping wet tile bathroom floor
because I have thrown all my naked Barbie and Ken parts,
especially their water-filled hollow insides,
and the five saturated pools of stained white washcloths
I took out of that drawer just like you said not to,
and the nice sudsy soft bar of soap,
then you might want to reconsider leaving the bathroom
during my bath.
You might want to think of telling a story
or imagining with my behavioral lectures
I so mercilessly inflict
on the shattered heads of my daughters,
oops,
I mean dolls.

Perhaps oppositional cognitive dissonance 
is what Republicans have about Democrats.

If you folks would be so kind as to return to cooperative civic and civil discussion,
about my intrinsic dignity, royalty perhaps,
sense of anthrocentric entitlement,
immaculate integrity as a permacultured Orthodox Tradition,
utterly necessary to optimize sustainable and resilient health
for All Americans,
(although perhaps not quite sufficient),
including those who happen to have become embarrassed
by their unhealthy wealth and extravagant disregard
for undercommodified values,
like caring and nurturing, loving and therapeutic
mentoring relationships and trees of life, and economic
and eco-logical environ-mental (0)-sum cooperative networks,
like the synergy of all natural systems,
most especially religious cultures
delivering a united and interdependent positive teleology
that we all created this rapacious, extractive mess together.

So, please stop leaving the bathroom of discourse,
regardless of how rhetorically insane and polemic,
every time we complain about your shitty attitudes
about wealthy compost and sustainable,
resilient,
optimized economic growth.
Then you democratically complain,
by voting for the one you hate the least,
as we go right on doing
what we intended to do
while we were throwing water
on your slippery-floor economics
of radical,
reverse-hierarchical interdependence and mutual subsidiarity.
Much too "solidarity" for Republican taste as True,
much less Just to those who prefer their
economically entrenched competitive silos.

And,
our Democratic family value parents 
hear their oppositionally disordered Republicans
as if they were bionically alien unitarian utilitarians,
like honey bees and ant hives,
devoid of deductive rational accessibility,
of even one of four dimensions of truth,
and  without capacity to empathize with their well-mentored praxis,
of continually forgetting you could not climb a higher priority
right now
than telling your oppositional daughter Dr. Seuss's The Lorax, 
interpreting each voice as your own Lorax Logos,
wondering why you continue competing
to reach a Win-Win Cooperative Game,
and political
and economic
and ecological
and cultural 
and biological karmic finish line,
alone in your Permaculture Designed polycultural PolyLife Tree Paradise.

When you think about it,
you can see that your competitive political
and economic assumption,
that Win-Win cooperation will not have our final say,
is not ecologically, scientifically,
or even permaculturally, metaphysically
sound, rational, integrated,
sustainably designed to benefit future generations,
much less synergetic or holonically comprehensive.

You can't win a P=NP,
4-fractal/spiral (0)-sum
cooperative economic logistical plan
until everyone else has the freedom
and integrity
and ecotherapeutic orthopraxis comprehension,
intention,
to win-win with you, coincidentally.

With this perhaps un-Christian, 
and vaguely irreligious perspective
that Democratic mutual-redeemer culture
is closer to (0) sum Core Value Balanced Heaven
rationality, and intuition,
than appears to be the case
for our benighted Republican
wealthy fat-cat anthro-supremacist residents of Earth,
we have turned rather too far
our spinning cultural revolution pendulum
away from the racist sin of monocultural monotheism,
poverty and the overpowering commodification of human lives,
and the commodification of other species,
and the commodification of Earth's fire, water,
soil and sky,
Her capacity to regenerate fertile seeds,
turning away from sin as sterile insanity,
disability and absence,
to now prophecy the sins of monopolistic wealth,
and power;
to notice challenging, dissonant tipping points
within monocultural,
monochromatic,
monopolistic 
bicamerally competing economic uncertainty
and ecological dysfunction for all consciousness
all nations,
reconnecting our more humane DNA-informed
bicameral information processor branch of EcoTribe,
RNA-inscribed,
transliterate,
multisystemic and polycultural Climax Community,
diastatically 
interdependently
coincidentally straining and stressing to comprehend
Polynomial SpaceTime = Not-Not Polynomial Open Systemic Binomial Prime Relationship Temporal "Now"
as Yang-convex/positive = Yin-concave/negative,
as +1.00% QBit = +/-(0)% Soul Core-emergent universal Vertex/Dark Recessional Vortex (Perelman, 1993)

So, yes, maybe somewhat closer,
but closer doesn't count
when playing Win-Win economic ecotherapy.
Horseshoes don't fit elephants.

Speaking of elephants in too-narrow-minded oppositional spaces, 
where was I?
Oh, yes, she’s in the bathtub again,
better watch that floor.

JetBlack God of Earth's History

I might best not say why,
yet I finally admit,
Taoist me imagines Yang as a JetBlack God,
Creator of this Universe
and, therefore, also ProGenerator of Anthros
with YinGoddess Earth,
blue-green Gaia,
surrounded by an ultra-violet rainbow of White Bright healthy climax-climate,
currently experiencing a more degenerative period.

BlackYang God interdependently, and bio-organic regeneratively,
invites and helps us with synergetic ecopolitical force
by, of, and for (0)rthodox (0)ctave (0)-Holons
of healthy good and beautifully full
multicultural evolution,
unfolding and reweaving with ergodic dualdark frequencies
performing dipolar fractal,
and therefore notnot octave co-arising,

of ecosystemic identity formations,
where 'c' stands for bicameral co-gravitating consciousness
of fertile lightspeed
as Earth's double-binding temporal ecotherapy for NOW,
regenerating.

Reweaving my imagination of BlackYang God
timelessly impregnating Empty White Virginal Gaia Goddess YinYin,
with a language culture where White is not only color's entropic void,
but also integrative potential for regeneratively multiculturing ecologies of color,
chemistries and climates and memes and gene-function frequencies,
smells and tastes and sounds and feelings and even active hopes
nourished by embryonic organic nutritional memories
of matriarchal reverse DNA healthy mindbody development
of fractal holonic fold and unfold,
weaving and unweaving,
Medicines of MindBody EcoTherapy,
manna and milk,
finally giving ever deeper learning capital investment head
and Leftsinging/Rightdancing voice
to notnot WinWin BlackYang God's

of ecopolitical regenerative health
for both external climates
and internally moral, normative, DNA instinctive, WinWin

and certainly not nihilistically terrorizing

as such co-arising nondual couplings

and other more internal functions

active rainbows of hope,
co-empathic fully-democratic EarthTribal trust.

In and As BlackYang God's further ecology of evolution.
LeftBrain deep bilaterally learns regenerative
as at least having co-arising equivalent nonduality
within any system still intelligently self-perpetuating,
doing our best to remain a healthy Left/Right MindBody viable system,
rather than further succumbing  to further competitions in degenerative chaos.

Earth's ecopolitical trust v distrust
might evolve BlackYang God more effectively,
more WhiteYin Goddess ecoconsciously 
nurturing polypathic fertility,
more multiculturally inclusive
of all health and development paradigms,
including cooperative (0)-sum economics
as health regenerative
and potentially even self-other-Earth optimizing
Continuous Quality Improvement Health and Safety EcoPolitics,

In this my PostMillennial Golden Era,
where my, and hopefully our, 
Polynomial (0)-soul Black GeoBioMetrics = Not(NotPolypathic) White
bicamerally dipolar-balancing ecoconsciousness,
I do my best to learn deep bicameral ecology
from the both/and appositions co-arising Positive JetBlack Psychology
opposing, digesting, absorbing 
OldSchool White ecopolitical cognitive-affective dissonance
about Black over White,
LeftBrain's supereco-repressive thing
about YangWhite over YinBlack feeling just cause for freedom's paranoia, 
like conspiracies of self-implicating  participation in past enslavement
of what should remain co-equally Left/Right free 
to shine time's full-Tao healthy light,
Virginal EarthGoddess White
namaste with Black Universal God 
of Yanging HealthyWealthy Time
for my, and hopefully our, 
climatic multicultural peace with justice revolution.

I might best not say why,

For Spacious Time

I need some natural,
organic,
spacious kinda time.
Where is nature in this time,
my time,
our time?

Perhaps nature is to time
as solid forms are to functional creation,
as solidarity is to creativity,
as Yang is to Yin,
as Full-Blown Climaxing polycultural kinda natural jazzy space
enters permacultural swingin' revolutionary time,
bangin' and beatin' our hearts to ping.

Where was I, again?
Well, never mind,
you can't go home again
in this polycultural space within permaculturing time.

Shout out to your sisters and your brothers
celebrating their multicultural Universalist space
balancing their Right-brain Co-Synergetic
Unitarian lusty kinda co-operative rhyming time.

Dubois soul sings Beloved Community
rhymes with Positive Integrity,
opposed by that nasty one "mendacity,"
a negative double-binding not yet not true,
our passive-aggressive cultural dissonance,
lack of cooperative resonance,
coupled with abject insolence,
when faced with Beloved Integrity
growing transgressively regenerative
revolutions of space in well-timed 
full-racing DNA prime.

Ooh!!

Um-hmmm...

Dubois begat integrity
as Nazareth, that nada nest,
begat love,
as Bucky begat synergy,
as Atlee begat co-intelligence,
as Permaculturally natural eco-logical designs and long-term plants
begat RNA's ubiquitous wisdom.

Um-hmmm..
Um-hmmm..

If justice is what love looks like in public
and tenderness is what love looks like in private,
I'd say we're lookin better on the privates of our face
than on the public beaten side of our race
through space
to trace
this RNA place
where eco-justice was most originally defined.

How much more RNA do you really think there could be
in white skin than in black?
And would you not say that RNA is our most omnipotent,
most omnipresent,
most ubiquitous space and time 
of intelligently regenerative design?

Yeah, I'm wid you,
I ain't neve' heard a no more DNA in The Dominant Left-Brained Man!
I jus' a dumb cooperative minded gay guy
who thinks you're playin' me,
and my playin' days is over!

Dr. West reminds,
reconnects
religions,
transgenerational catastrophe is to reissuing problems
as torrential flooding is to dust in my cognitive dissonance eyes.
A chronically possessive culture
breeds a catastrophically dispossessive economy.
A competitive economy 
breeds a rabid lack of eco-logic.
Cancer cells always consider themselves chronic;
never would think of ourselves as catastrophic,
because we're just so in love with that Positive Psychology
face in our cultural mirror.

The darker subconscious will have her intuitional revolution day
tonight
as she does every night we dream of polycultures
and nightmare with co-operative strength
against monocultural monotheistic monopolistic monochromatic 
monomial universalism.
That's our Black Hole womb from which our comprehensive consciousness evolved
enlightenment and light, 
and bright, 
and transparency,
as Father Time's Left Deductive 
gets it on with Mother Space's Right Inductive,
trans-parentcy.

Discerning justice, integrity, synergy, loving spaces
for here-and-now time,
would best redeem this transparent moment
as co-investment for our co-operative future Time.
Balancing discernment is like learning to ride a bike,
once you get the knack of positive-deductive-left
greets negative co-inductive (double-bind knot,
or not) right,
with self-optimizing cooperative environmental momentum,
sufficient to sustain nature's well-tempered life,
the rest is just peddling,
day in and night out,
eventually decomposing dismount
into further co-prehensile consciousness of death reborn...

"naturally, organic, spacious kinda' time
rollin and weavin our narrative songs
sung in RNA's pre-digital key of UCAG...
swingin' as we"

why does breathing feel like floating and swimming inside?

and what was that thing called phantom limbs of consciousness?

Um-hmmm...
Sing that song,
all day long!

Ooooh yeah!
Look at our cooperative nature
in this most polyculturing time.

I feel sublime.

Oh yeah,
um-hmmm,
thump to my thump,

Spacious skies.
Golden waves of yummy grain.
Ultra-violet mountain range of consciousness,
Earth's permaculturally fruitful plain.
Universe's co-operatively jazzy face.
