“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.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, 2019 Style – “Free Trip to Egypt” A Journey From the Illusion of Separation to the Truth of Oneness

Aired 11 June 2019 – 5:00 PM EDT

Interview with Tarek Mounib, Producer of the Documentary “Free Trip to Egypt”

“The one thing that will save humankind is human kindness.” — Swami Beyondananda

 

It was more than 50 years ago that an envelope-pushing motion picture broke the issue of interracial marriage into mainstream consciousness. In “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” starring Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, Sidney Poitier and Katherine Houghton, two families get to confront societal taboos and personal conflicts as an interracial couple announce their pending marriage. The movie ends with mutual acceptance and both families sitting down to dinner together.

Note that the movie wasn’t called “Guess Who’s Coming for Coffee?”

There is something about the ritual of sharing food, company and conversation that can transform the illusion of separation into the truth of oneness. And just as the aforementioned movie opened doors and possibilities half a century ago, perhaps a new film can help heal the misunderstandings and conflicts between Americans and the Muslim world.

Tarek Mounib, a Canadian-Egyptian entrepreneur living in Switzerland was troubled by a world that seemed ever more divided and polarized. In response to increasing levels of anger and hatred towards “the other” on American social and broadcast media, he resolved to reach out to the very people who fear his culture, with an intriguing idea. With the aim of trying to build mutual understanding, Tarek traveled across the United States in order to find Americans who feel threatened by Islam and offered them a Free Trip to Egypt. (Spoiler: He goes to Donald Trump rallies to find these people.)
