“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.

Can “Tell-A-Vision” Change Our Programming? Shifting Our Focus From What We DON’T Want to What We DO Want
Aired 7 July 2020 – 5:00 PM EDT
Interview with George Cappannelli, Co-Founder of Age Nation and the “World I Want Collaboratory”
“This is a make believe world … we make what we believe.” — Swami Beyondananda
Something that seems to be true about we humans is, we are a lot more clear – and vocal – about what we DON’T want than what we DO want. Maybe it’s because that to survive, our ancestors had to be hyper-vigilant about anything that could be harmful, and visioning and designing a future different from our past was relegated to the luxury of leisure time. Add to this the programming that we are “sinners” and that creating a world that works is “utopian”, and we can see how we’ve arrived at the brink of a dark, dystopian reality.
But as the Swami says, we have a choice. If we don’t want dystopia, we have to choose “dat-topia” – an alternative where we use our intelligence intelligently and our resources more resourcefully.
The question of the day – if not the century – is, how do we turn the ideal into the “real deal”? How do we cohere a sacred center around the virtues and values our spiritual teachers have extolled for millennia – and that science is now confirming as the optimal operating system for evolutionary thrival?
Our guest on Wiki Politiki this week, George Cappannelli is the co-founder of The World I Want “Collaboratory” to help us design a future worth living into. George Cappannelli is an award-winning author, and an expert on individual, organizational and societal change.
