“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 Political Psychologist, Activist and Writer Diane Perlman
“Notseeism: The habit of choosing to not see what is too uncomfortable to look at.” — Swami Beyondananda
America – and indeed the world – is living in two parallel realities.
In one reality, experts are lauding the new vaccines as the only way to liberate us from the COVID pandemic and lockdown. Those who are “vaccine-hesitant” or doubt the efficacy of masking and social distancing are seen as science-deniers and ignorant, selfish Trumpsters.
In another reality, the vaccines – particularly if made mandatory or de facto mandatory via vaccine passports – are viewed as untested, potentially dangerous, and an attempt to install medical totalitarianism. Critics of the “vaccine as savior” policy point to the censorship and de-platforming of any alternative views – including successful treatments of COVID cases that make hospitalization unnecessary – and wonder how many deaths could have been avoided had these simple and inexpensive treatments been publicized and made widely available.
So who – or what – is right? Is there a middle ground as this seeming reality chasm widens?
This week, we have re-invited a guest we had earlier this year, Diane Perlman, to discuss vaccine passports, censorship, polarization, and the psychological barriers to seeing the whole picture. She is in the process of establishing a new site CoronaWise, to offer irrefutable facts and undeniable evidence that the media has conveniently omitted, so that we can make wiser choices around vaccinations and handling these crises in the future.
