Feminine Power

The province of matriarchy is what. The province of patriarchy is how. What shall we do, that is in service to life, love, and beauty? How shall we do it? These questions merge and flow into each other. What becomes how, how becomes what. Such is the conjugation of matriarchy and patriarchy.

Pandemania, Part 5

Safety mania and death phobia are signs of a disconnection from purpose and passion. If you have nothing more important than your own life, then preserving life is left as the only purpose.

Pandemania, Part 1

The social illness I speak of is not Covid per se, but our response to it. I will call the illness pandemania—a social, psychological, and political derangement that caused much more harm than the disease itself, and continues to do so.

Transhumanism and the Metaverse

The promoters of the transhumanist Metaverse describe it as not only good, but inevitable. It may seem so, given that it is an extension of an age-old trend. But hopefully by making its underlying myths and assumptions visible, we can exercise a conscious choice in embracing or refusing it.

Compartmentalization: UFOs and Social Paralysis

We will not resume our progress until we reunite our splintered society and psyche. Once we do, we may perhaps see the folly of the project to attain paradise through technological and social control, and we will turn our united energies toward an entirely different project.

Reinventing Progress: How to Move Beyond Technocracy

The techno-scientific ambition for perfect knowledge and control is like trying to reach the horizon by running. It is like trying to build a tower all the way to the sky. No matter how fast and far you run, the horizon is no closer. No matter how high you build, the sky is no nearer.

The Field of Peace

Until we dismantle the empire and terminate the Military-industrial complex, something like Ukraine will recur again and again, whether instigated (as is usual) by the US imperial hegemon or by the adversaries it generates from its us-versus-them worldview. Can’t we write another plot for the human drama?

Divide, Conquer; Unite, Heal

Whether deliberately or not, a situation has been engineered to dispose the public toward division. It is an old formula: Enemies are among us! The unclean put us all at risk! The heretics will bring the wrath of God upon us all! Let us recognize that ancient formula and how closely the dominant Covid narrative conforms to it.

Elements of Refusal

Drug companies, regulators, public health agencies, doctors, and scientists have to stop patronizing us if we are ever to trust them. They have to stop manipulating us. They have to stop cheating and hiding, bullying and censoring, bribing and coercing the public. Then, if honest research shows us that the vaccines are necessary and safe, we will trust that research and happily comply. Until then, we will not merely “hesitate”; we will obstinately refuse to receive an injection pushed upon us by people we do not trust.

The America that Almost Was and Yet May Be

The assassination of president John F. Kennedy represented a turning away from a promising future for the United States – from the promise of a government “of the people, by the people and for the people,” to a sham government powered by the elite and self-interested industry. Is there any way this can be reversed?

A Temple of this Earth: Moving Beyond Redemptive Violence

A saying goes, “Truth is the first casualty of war.” And the primal lie of war is the same as that of mob violence, the pogrom, and the witch hunt: that certain people are not fully human. As long as we perpetuate that lie, humanity will continue the tragic historical pattern. We will also remain befuddled in our personal and collective sense-making.

Every Act a Ceremony

Can a reunion of the ceremonial with the pragmatic offer us a profoundly different way of seeing the world, and means to live in harmony with each other, other living beings, and the Earth?

The Coronation

“Covid-19 is like a rehab intervention that breaks the addictive hold of normality. To interrupt a habit is to make it visible; it is to turn it from a compulsion to a choice. When the crisis subsides, we might have occasion to ask whether we want to return to normal, or whether there might be something we’ve seen during this break in the routines that we want to bring into the future.”

A Beautiful World of Abundance

Scarcity is one of the defining features of modern life. Around the world, one in five children suffers from hunger. We fight wars over scarce resources such as oil. We have depleted the oceans of fish, and the ground of clean water. Worldwide, people and governments are cutting back, making do with less, because of a scarcity of money. Few would deny that we live in an era of scarce resources; many would say it is dangerous to imagine otherwise. Yet it is not hard to see that most of this scarcity is artificial.
