Let me speak clearly with you
dear religious and atheist Trumpians,

A fool in executive office
is a leader
only in foolish directions.

A rich thief
is the worst thief
as survival motives
are absent,
so self-thrival motives
remain piratically rampant.

Premium Member Professor Glory's Active Hope
The title of this talk today,
"Win-Win Politics of New Feminist Economics"
suggests questions,
more than emasculating 
definitively deductive
reductive
answers.

Would you imagine
a minority-identified Buddhist,
more likely as a feminist
or culturally comfortable
with political and economic Left-brain domination,
monopolistic competing toward total self-consuming

Premium Member PsychoTripic Theory of Everything
Consciousness co-arises nondually internal-external.

Today I want to talk about possibilities
for permacultural dynamics,
which are natural systemic
relationships,
correlations,
between Left-brain deductive consciousness,
Right-brain inductive ecoconsciousness,
and a double boundary between these bicameral landscapes,
which we call unconsciousness.

The feasibility,
much less value,
of recognizing this...

Stepped inside Bucky's Universal Credit Union today

I think he's talking about a cooperative bicameral political system,
