Democracy On Fire
In "On Fire"
Naomi Klein reminds us
win/lose capitalism invites a collective action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,
a healthy global climate,
invite regenerative win/win climax
of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of "wealth"
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
Climate health informs public sector values,
ecology of nutritional needs
and investment in cooperatively-held wants.
Capitalism's monopolistic version of "wealth"
informs private sector values,
greedy and predative norms,
theology of transcendent jealousy
and divestment from sacred communion.
When Donald Trump successfully ran for President,
he explicitly ran against all things Obama,
against audacious hope in public sector cooperativism.
Like Nixon's "Southern strategy"
this was a way
to effectively say
"I am for Straight-White-Evangelical-Male-privileged capitalism,
so I am your safest Business As Usual investment."
This turns competitive debate
rather than cooperative dialogue,
and private sector CEO decision-making
rather than democratic grass-roots discernment,
and no public health-investment experience
into a "drain the socialist swamp" asset.
He did not mention
his nationalistic capitalism
is abhorrent to global climate health,
all of which are rooted in EarthJustice wealth,
regenerative action and win/win response
inviting cooperative social climax
within and between species
and all forms of natural/spiritual living energy systems.
When national Democratic Party leaders
declare objective NumberOne
for 2020 success
is to defeat Trump,
I 20/20 disagree.
This continues and further escalates a win/lose strategy
to out-capitalize the Trumpian icon of Capitalism.
Rather than a democratic positive empowerment strategy.
This is a sub-optimal choice
because it pretends public sector win/win healthy outcomes
can be achieved with more
and more private sector win/lose incomes--
home burns and melts and floods.
look to a more resilient
robust cooperative investment in health.
Health of all kinds:
democratic co-investment health,
economic cooperative-ownership and -management health,
restorative justice health,
green new deal health,
polynomial interdependent intersectional health,
