Democracy is Dying and it’s Startling How Few are Worried Paul Mason

I have been in France just under a month. I found out not even two hours ago through a conversation on skype with my sister who lives in England and France, that during the time we were back in the United States of Apathy, that ICE (i hadn’t know what this was, i thought ICE was simply In Case of Emergency) However I learned from my sister today about the other version. (ICE) Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

I hadn’t known what ICE meant, I had to google it. http://www.newsweek.com/immigration-immigration-and-customs-enforcement-ice-donald-trump-628896

ICE had come into the town of Lebanon, PA into a catholic church on a Sunday, and rounded up dozens of people, probably mostly men, of darker skin, and packed them into a van to take to another town to sit in jail, awaiting trial, perhaps a 1 or 2 year wait.

While visiting the USA just a month ago, my sister befriended a guy from El Salvador who stayed in the motel room next to her. He’s been in the USA for 25 years, has a green card and has several kids and a wife in Virginia. Presently he’s been in central Pennsylvania working in construction to support his family. He was one of the people rounded up and loaded into this van. My sister attempted to stay with him, holding his hand, went into the van, and the police officer warned her with a tone of reproach that she better get the hell out of there if she knows what’s good for her.

The El Salvadoran gave my sister his phone and the number of his wife to call in VA. My sister said that his wife was screaming when she heard the news. Her life support money-earner for herself and her kids, disposed of.

I knew nothing of this. I was just reading headlines last night about 500 people in Turkey under questioning or worse, for attempting to overthrow a dictator. I know nothing of this Turkey official and hadn’t read the story yet.

Yet I thought to myself, can not the world step in and change this situation? That was before I knew what was happening in the neighboring town while I was sleeping on a Sunday morning. WTF.

 

 

What can we do? Sit back, crack open a beer and hang out with friends, watch a TV show, get ready to arrange the schedule of picking up the kids from their practice…..when before our eyes a military dictatorship fascist embarrassment of a President is enforcing this sweep of people across the country who have been living and working here, taking jobs that Americans haven’t wanted, and who were brought here to do the dirty jobs that help our system to run efficiently, are suddenly afraid to leave their homes to go to the grocery store?

Stop Swooning over Justin Trudeau, Climate Disaster, Bill McKibben

Stop Swooning over Justin Trudeau Climate Disaster Bill McKibben

McKibben writes for the Guardian, “Yes, 173bn barrels is indeed the estimate for recoverable oil in the tar sands. So let’s do some math. If Canada digs up that oil and sells it to people to burn, it will produce, according to the math whizzes at Oil Change International, 30% of the carbon necessary to take us past the 1.5C target that Canada helped set in Paris.

That is to say, Canada, which represents one half of 1% of the planet’s population, is claiming the right to sell the oil that will use up a third of the earth’s remaining carbon budget. Trump is a creep and a danger and unpleasant to look at, but at least he’s not a stunning hypocrite.”

Out of Wreckage, A New Politics, Age of Crisis, George Monbiot

Out of the Wreckage A New Politics for an Age of Crisis George Monbiot

Monbiot writes, “A toxic ideology rules the world – of extreme competition and individualism. It misrepresents human nature, destroying hope and common purpose. Only a positive vision can replace it, a new story that re-engages people in politics and lights a path to a better world.”

What are we going to do?

Immigrants from Syria and other parts of the world, war/climate immigrants are escaping deplorable situations to come to the West, which has been living amply, to be treated with hostility and turned away with barbwire. Black market money to stuff people on rickety over-loaded boats, taking peoples’ life savings, to flee situations, only to find that the rest of the world is not helping to organize their safe transport.

This is very, very wrong. We can use the money from the enormous profits from banks, international corporations who make millions and billions in profit, to set up communities, and renewable energy enterprises to re-esatablish safe havens.

This is not right. We can’t read news and do nothing like it isn’t our problem. In some countries people are having 12 to 16 babies. A large part of the problem of GLOBAL WARMING/CLIMATE CHANGE IS due to over-population. We are sucking up the soil, destroying habitats of other animals who have a right to life.

Humans need to be accountable.

We need to be accountable for what is happening ALL OVER THE WORLD.

We need to intercept. I’m sorry, but we need to educate and infiltrate, not remain passive, saying it’s not my problem. Not my problem if some people are cruel to other humans or animals or their actions are knowingly or unknowingly destroying the habitat and polluting some creatures’ environment.

I don’t think any living being can just sit back and let all this happen without having a conscience and wanting to help.

I don’t know where to begin, except for expressing this. I think the world needs leaders who will actually step in and shut Trump and other dictators down. People can divest – take their money out of banks and institutions that support dirty energy and dirty politics. There are numerous ways that people working together could SHUT DOWN OPERATIONS AS THEY ARE through organized actions like; those working in public transportation or truck drivers to not work for a day, or three…We can all work together, educate one another, demand new structures and create them together, IMMEDIATELY.

There are plenty of people with the wisdom and insights and contacts to know how to lead and guide a worldwide REVOLUTION. Not a violent one, a movement with people stepping out of their routines and giving a little time and effort and action to make their voice heard. We can’t let more dictators destroy peoples lives. We can’t let peoples religious beliefs just allow people to pop out 13 babies and pretend that it’s okay. We live in one world, one with limited resources. I refuse to just take on business as usual, and pretend that it’s okay for Mr. Orangehead Chump to push his grey suits around and whimsical notions of what he thinks needs to happen. It’s time for the fucking world intelligence, artists, teachers, scientists and leaders to step in. I still have to read about what’s happening in Turkey, or Venezuela, because I can’t keep up with all of it, but it just IS NOT OKAY ANYMORE, to think that “It’s not here next to me in my community, so it’s not my problem.” IT IS ALL OF OUR PROBLEM. WE NEED LEADERS WHO CAN STEP IN AND INTERCEPT, AGENCIES TO EDUCATE, GUIDE.

I thank all of the environmental, social, ecological groups who serve as watch dogs and educate the rest of us, but somehow, i think something much more brilliant has to take place to begin lighting up the whole world to working together. If we are the people – in a Democracy – choosing our leaders, then we should have the military industrial complex working with us, not in militarized suits, against us.

Center for Biological Diversity | What You Can Do | Room for Wildlife

According to the newsletter from the Center for Biological Diversity

Today’s world population is: 7,521,304,286. We can still save room for wildlife.

“A new study on climate mitigation examines how different lifestyle choices can reduce personal greenhouse gas emissions and help contribute to the systemic change needed to keep global average temperatures below 2 degrees Celsius. The most effective way to cut carbon emissions, according to the researchers, will come as no surprise to Pop X readers: Have fewer children. Also near the top of the list are reducing meat and dairy consumption, switching to clean energy and minimizing carbon-intensive travel by avoiding long flights and ditching your gas-guzzler in favor of walking, biking and public transportation.”

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.

I’ve just posted a blog on my other site, speaking of my own emergence; the appearance of an artist atelier to enable me – and push me – to complete my book.

Connecting with Oneself & Others | Healing with the Heart | IAM heart |

It appeared to be by chance that I became aware of this, yet I believe that ‘there are no accidents’.

Frankly, I’m typically such a high energy person that it’s difficult to sit down to meditate. ahh, yet this group meditation which I attended last evening with a guide who introduces the technique and facilitates learning about it, certainly reveals the benefit of getting out of one’s head and stepping into one’s conscious awareness of heart and body wholeness.

IAM stands for Institute of Applied Meditation IAM heart logo

They wish to assist in a global shift from mind to heart, by the most direct method there is: meditation on the physical heart so as to control its rhythm.

Whereas http://www.heartmath.org is a separate nonprofit educational organization which has conducted studies for two decades on heart intelligence and the health benefits of stress management, http://www.iamheart.org takes this beyond the physical, to the emotional, social and spiritual benefits of tuning one’s meditative breathing towards one’s heart.

IAM is training a cadre of meditators to develop the ability to send Waves of Peace as measurable, magnetic heart waves in entrainment: Global Interventions using Heart Rhythm Meditation

Our Mission
“IAM heart” develops and applies Heart Rhythm Meditation
to integrate physical, emotional and spiritual life
to create love, harmony and beauty
to awaken the consciousness of humanity 
to the divinity of each human being.
