Emergence | Inevitability of Seeking the Kind Way | Love & Appreciation of All Life

“President Trump ordered a review in April that could open federally protected lands to mining, logging and drilling.” I was alerted through this video showing the lovely national monuments that are at risk. It is atrocious.

This concise video reveals that Trump is not only the first president to not establish a national park, but the first to repeal the laws protecting them. Yes, it is true that there are generations of families who have made their living through the oil and gas industry, yet that doesn’t by any means imply that there would not be a tremendous source of jobs through Research & Development, Transference of skills and work places in the creation of renewable energy jobs across the country. As I mentioned in a former blog how FDR Franklin D. Roosevelt’s enforced the WPA – Works Progress Administration – from the top down; creating massive jobs to rebuild the infrastructure of the USA…this could now be implemented in creating wave, wind, solar, biomass and other technologies helping to restore land, animals habitats, beauty and resource value of nature, along with education and smart transportation technologies…all to make the life for all more free, more equitable and of much better quality.

In the meantime, I see this reading the news, and I responded as I posted it with the most whimsical wishing of a utopian culture, where the goal is to live fully, live peacefully together with others and to embrace nature. The idea that we could actually change the status quo of the workweek and our habits of being enslaved to a consumer-driven culture, to actually free up our bodies and minds to be more conscious beings and for each to thrive doing what they love, is the utopian world I’m dreaming of.
When I read this, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-03-13/kushners-set-to-get-400-million-from-chinese-on-marquee-tower I just let my sarcasm and wishful thinking flow.

Let’s just focus on making business deals and keep that wealth floating in the clouds, just on the finger tips of the family, not doing anything to better the quality of life of the people, down here. let’s think of only profit, after all, one needs to have, rather than counting, let me reverse this; you can only sit on one toilet at a time, so how much wealth does one person need to amass? Quality of life is the what and where, but mostly how one is feeding one’s own experience. I just overheard someone today saying, “Don’t ask Why, just ask How” We each have our unique set of circumstances, yet how you’re feeling as your strolling a path has much to do with your own accountability to yourself to create the best situation from the circumstances you’re in, and then to others to serve to help them to reach their own affinity with their lives. What about using capital to make an enormous transfer of research & development, purchasing, education and industrial transfer / cross-training to generate a huge amount of jobs for people in every state. Transferring skills and creating clean renewable energy, investing in transportation infrastructure towards clean cars (as a bicyclist one really knows first-hand what is delivered into the air of streets through idling cars and unmaintained gas guzzling automobiles and trucks), creating community gardens contributing to local groceries everywhere, giving more people work opportunities in the creation and implementation of new sustainable technologies: i.e. put minor legal offenses of prisoners into training in renewable and sustainable development and put the prison systems into the growing and animal rehabilitation and habitat preservation business; growing (plants for humans, not resource gouging cows and industrial farming). Dropping the standard workweek to 30 or less hours (reconnecting people to themselves, to their families and nature). Free the cows and pigs and turn them into marijuana growing operations, win/win; the farmers suddenly have a much more lucrative income and this issues an evolving conscious twist and choice to live together harmoniously with other life forms on the planet, and turn the earth into more of a garden than an industrial zone. just sayn’.

I bring up this previously written blog talking about Franklin D. Roosevelt’s remedy to fix a broken economy, and wrote about this back prior to President Obama’s second administration. The idea that many, many things could be set into motion, by a government who cares about the people and wants to set things on to a good course.

In the meantime, my brother-in-law sends me this article about India embracing solar power and moving at a quick pace to overcome reliance on petroleum energy. This just spells out what a community or country can do, if they aren’t blocked by a wall of greed.

Notch Up the Government’s Role with “ObamaWorks” | A Version of Roosevelt’s WPA |

Prior to Obama’s win of the 2012 presidential nomination, on the 5th of October I submitted this query to a dozen American magazine publications, and waited for a response. I’ve just posted this on my other blog, and thought I’d spread the information.

Notch Up the Government’s Role with “ObamaWorks” | A Version of Roosevelt’s WPA |

Understanding history | Tom Dispatch | Lewis Lapham “The Rule of Money”

I sense that this is one of the most important sources of information I have come upon. Therefore, I’m putting it out there, a reprint of a reprint. Realizing that there is much to learn and re member from history, and my previous blog mentioning Franklin D. Roosevelt as an example of an American leader when those with honesty and integrity still existed. This reading should be mandatory!

“Good intentions, like mother’s milk, are a perishable commodity. As wealth accumulates, men decay, and sooner or later an aristocracy that once might have aspired to an ideal of wisdom and virtue goes rancid in the sun, becomes an oligarchy distinguished by a character that Aristotle likened to that of “the prosperous fool” — its members so besotted by their faith in money that “they therefore imagine there is nothing that it cannot buy.
……..
What Paine had meant by the community of common interest found voice and form in Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, in the fighting of World War II by a citizen army willing and able to perform what Machiavelli would have recognized as acts of public conscience.
….
During the middle years of the twentieth century, America at times showed itself deserving of what Albert Camus named as a place “where the single word liberty makes hearts beat faster,” the emotion present and accounted for in the passage of the Social Security Act, in the mounting of the anti-Vietnam War and civil rights movements, in the promise of LBJ’s Great Society. But that was long ago and in another country, and instead of making hearts beat faster, the word liberty in America’s currently reactionary scheme of things slows the pulse and chills the blood.

Ronald Reagan’s new Morning in America brought with it in the early 1980s the second coming of a gilded age more swinish than the first, and as the country continues to divide ever more obviously into a nation of the rich and a nation of the poor, the fictions of unity and democratic intent lose their capacity to command belief. If by the time Bill Clinton had settled comfortably into the White House it was no longer possible to pretend that everybody was as equal as everybody else, it was clear that all things bright and beautiful were to be associated with the word private, terminal squalor and toxic waste with the word public.

The shaping of the will of Congress and the choosing of the American president has become a privilege reserved to the country’s equestrian classes, a.k.a. the 20% of the population that holds 93% of the wealth, the happy few who run the corporations and the banks, own and operate the news and entertainment media, compose the laws and govern the universities, control the philanthropic foundations, the policy institutes, the casinos, and the sports arenas. Their anxious and spendthrift company bears the mark of oligarchy ridden with the disease diagnosed by the ancient Greeks as pleonexia, the appetite for more of everything — more McMansions, more defense contracts, more beachfront, more tax subsidy, more prosperous fools.
….
A Government That Sets Itself Above the Law

The hostile intent has been conscientiously sustained over the last 30 years, no matter which party is in control of Congress or the White House, and no matter what the issue immediately at hand — the environment or the debt, defense spending or campaign-finance reform. The concentrations of wealth and power express their fear and suspicion of the American people with a concerted effort to restrict their liberties, letting fall into disrepair nearly all of the infrastructure — roads, water systems, schools, power plants, bridges, hospitals — that provides the country with the foundation of its common enterprise.”

Milton S. Hershey Philanthropist | Franklin D. Roosevelt warning of the Tyranny of ‘Economic Royalists’ i.e. Republican Party

Because I was born in Hershey hospital and raised in a town next to Hershey, PA, I decided to check out all that this man, Milton S. Hershey contributed to this town which was named after him. Milton S. Hershey was born September 13th, 1857. There was just a celebration in the town commemorating his birth 155 years ago. He started out with the idea of manufacturing candy. Ultimately, he came up with the creation of ‘milk chocolate’ and the building of a chocolate factory, which is still a thriving business today. This region has rich soil and an abundance of dairy farms. What is most remarkable is what this entrepreneur did with his money. His legacy is his philanthropy.



Similar to Franklin D. Roosevelt who had a plan to put America to work, “The New Deal”, on a smaller scale, Milton Hershey’s vision evolved into creating a number of different enterprises for the local community. Among his creations was the construction of an elegant hotel on a hill for his wife. Hotel Hershey still looks over the town in splendor. Hershey also created gardens, horse-riding stables and an amusement park. He also established the notorious ‘Milton Hershey School‘ for orphans; originally just for boys, it now accommodates the education and shelter for girls as well. His intention was to provide for those in need and to raise the quality of life for all of the people he invited to work in the factory he built. Hershey continually reinvested. He built an empire of products and services to accommodate the townspeople. The beauty of the town and quality of its attractions have resulted in it being a popular tourist destination. He built an elegant community center for the arts. In the last decades, this elegant building has housed the Hershey Symphony; composed of a core of quality volunteer musicians whose excellence reflects the dynamic current conductor, Dr. Sandra Dackow, who brings the music to the audience with an articulate educational description of the works that are being performed. He also built a zoo. Each of these establishments are still flourishing; a testimony to one man’s intention. Presently, the town has a dynamic population of international students and workers employed at the Penn State University Hershey Medical Center.

As opposed to the Western trend (the past 15 years or so) of cutting jobs, downsizing and outsourcing – which ultimately deprives communities of work due to greed-driven incentives to cut costs – Hershey’s actions were noble. So many lives were positively affected and enhanced through his efforts to introduce conservation, education and culture to the community. All created through one man’s vision.

I compare Milton S. Hershey to Franklin D. Roosevelt as representative of individuals whose altruism and humanitarianism built their leadership; their entitlement coming through their dignity, integrity and the caliber of their actions, rather than through the persuasion and corruption of money. F.D.R rescued the American economy through bold measures, creating programs to establish a myriad of new jobs across the nation. Roosevelt’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention of 1936 for his second nomination for Presidency warned of the tyranny of the “economic royalists”:
“For too many of us the political equality we once had won, was meaningless in the face of economic inequality. A small group had concentrated into their own hands an almost complete control over other peoples’ property, other peoples’ money, other peoples’ labor-other peoples’ lives. For too many of us, life was no longer free; liberty no longer real; men could no longer follow the pursuit of happiness.”

I have addressed this in another blog talking about the unequal distribution of money. https://digesthis.wordpress.com/2012/01/29/the-collusion-of-big-money-eroding-the-quality-of-life-for-all/

It was later in a 1938 message to Congress, that FDR warned that the growth of private power could lead to fascism.

Here are more pics revealing the town of Hershey, Pennsylvania today, and all that are the legacy of one man’s vision and generosity.





The funny thing about the center of town, is that the streets have names of chocolate, the street lights are Hershey kisses, both unwrapped and wrapped.

Another view of the original factory. One of the rides – ‘the turnpike’ was incidentally where I worked as a high school student Hershey’s enterprises have employed many people in the area !-)

Then there’s the Hotel Hershey on the Hill with it’s array of attractions; horseback riding, swimming, spas, you name it. This is next to the Milton S. Hershey Boy’s High School (which since 1977 has allowed girls to attend the school). He was an exceptional man who put his fortune into the orphanage and built up the entire town. I commemorate him, yet wanted to add the mention of his contemporary, Franklin Roosevelt, whose vision for America is even more profound today in the 21st century. As I mentioned in an earlier blog http://carolkeiter.wordpress.com/2012/09/19/america-in-decline-built-through-a-series-of-great-steals-written-by-louie-davis-june-26-1988-for-his-elderhostel-students/ on my carolkeiter.wordpress site, I cited an article those who don’t learn from history are destined to repeat it!
