If Ours Was a World

Sisters and brothers, we are separated and broken. Fearful for our lives and livelihood. For our families and friends. This is not an easy time. Epidemics are stressful, and our shit was already all broken. 

I could go on and on about the latter, but we already know. Glaringly, corporate greed and human health are incompatible. COVID-19 is providing the magnifying glass on the corporate behaviors that have been wrecking our lives and our planet for decades, corrupting our political process and encouraging endless war.

Three Old Men

So it's come down to one of this group of three leading our republic for the next four years, if they can keep breathing that long. Seems sad somehow. Not that we've ever been the Great Nation the government public relations people claim, but we seem to have reached a new low in our 'democracy'.

Trump, Biden and Sanders. Clearly old, clearly white, clearly men. At least one is a sociopath, caring for nothing beyond himself, he's clearly unable to see beyond his own interests, even in the midst of a pandemic. 

The Gates of Delirium

(from the author) I wrote this just before the coronavirus became a threat in the west. At this point it's just more delirium...

We find ourselves today with the likely choice of Joe Biden and Donald Trump as president at the end of 2020, both men seemingly getting a bit soft in the head. This when the world is in chaos and climate chaos is taking a daily toll, along with our many other ills. We are at the gates of a delirious world.

2020 Vision

Well, Here we are folks! A pivotal year in so many ways. Climate chaos is upon us. The very fabric of what's left of our democracy is being hollowed out by senate Republicans addicted to power and corruption in the Trump Impeachment Trial. At the same time, the primary season is upon us, beginning with the Iowa Caucuses in early February. 

As Our Earth Turns

It's hard to imagine that there have been times in our civilization's past where our culture teeters on the edge of an abyss as it does now. We've had plenty of horrible experiences in our past, but none has been on the global scale of what we find today. Our history is a litany of corruption and abuse, and according to corporate media sources, there is no end in sight.

Woodstock Lives!

The Woodstock Music Festival was held August 15 -18, 1969 in upstate New York. It was in many ways the capstone of an utterly wild time, when young people revolted against the conformist stereotypes of the day. There's plenty of content online about the event and the tumultuous 1960's that surrounded the weekend.

The Integrity Requirement

As our political and governmental systems deepen their dysfunctionality, as corporations act ever more brazenly in their greed, as our planet suffers from the horrors of a broken culture, we clearly recognize that these systems fail miserably when it comes to integrity. When we look at our local and statewide political institutions, we see a similar pattern of corruption, with policies and attitudes that favor the folks with lots of money.

From Scarcity to Abundance

While our Earth and we, the people are suffering greatly in these times as the World4 'era of corporations' model continues to fail under the weight of its own corruption, a new model is emerging. 

It's a model that rejects the inevitability of globalism, and seeks solutions to local problems on a local level. It's a model that rejects the crappy food pushed onto us by box store chains and fast food corporations like McDonalds. It's a model that reflects back to us our innate humanity, and our need to work on behalf of each other to thrive.
