“Where left and right come front and center to face the music and dance together, to turn the funk into function and leave the junk at the junction”
Despite what we hear and see on the news, we have a deeply UNITED body politic in America. Whether people identify as progressive, conservative, independent or “other”, the vast majority of Americans believe our current pay-to-play political system doesn’t represent them. Particularly in the election of 2016, where the candidate named “Neither of the Above” would have won in a landslide, citizens are feeling disheartened, discouraged and disenfranchised.
The elephant — and donkey — in the living room is the growing awareness that neither of the two major parties has the people’s interest at heart, nor the good of the commonwealth for that matter. The system is incapable of fixing itself, and so what is required is an “intervention” by the entity that our founding documents, The Declaration of Independence and the Preamble to the Constitution declare is the “sovereign” of our republic: we, the people.

Interview with Canadian Journalist, Author and Activist Guy Crittenden
Swami’s Dictionary — Gobble-ization: The practice of mining the global economy (by saying “mine, mine, mine”) so that greedy turkeys gobble everything up. — Swami Beyondananda
When Bruce Lipton and I published Spontaneous Evolution in 2009, Barack Obama had just been elected President of the United States. In our first hardback edition of the book, we celebrated the election as a sign of a great evolutionary upwising, indicating that the majority of Americans prefer living into the “we’re-all-in-it-together” meme as opposed to the “every-man-for-himself” dominate-or-be-dominated paradigm.
And while I still suspect that most of us would rather live by the Golden Rule as opposed to the rule of gold, the neoliberalism of the Obama Democrats has shown itself to NOT be the vehicle that will take us there. A dozen years after the heady celebration of Obama’s election, the body politic is locked in a mutually-destructive battle-to-the-death that will insure that, whoever wins the election, the American people will lose.
How did we get here? And now that we are in this war of the worlds, what now? Can we agree on an agreed upon reality? Can we call forth a sane and sacred center to lead us from the middle?
Our guest on Wiki Politiki this week is Canadian-based journalist Guy Crittenden, who recently posted a piece that caught my eye – An Open Letter to Bill Gates – that calls out the technological “fix” that will further destroy the natural world. Guy Crittenden enjoyed a career as an environmental journalist and magazine editor for 25 years, winning 14 Kenneth R. Wilson Awards for excellence in business journalism and was twice a finalist at the National Magazine Awards … read more here.
