I’m very pleased to know that this blog, my second one ever, still has followers after all these years. Postings have been sparse for the last while, but now I’m getting some steam up once again.
I’ve decided to concentrate my work on my newest blog, ReLOVEution NOW! Please check it out and follow me there.
My thinking and work has taken form and now aims at fomenting a cultural revolution, one that will create a new psychological and social context for working on the issues and problems we typically think of when we hear “revolution”. We can’t successfully address problems of political and economic and spiritual malaise when the cultural context for our efforts works against our efforts. I maintain that authoritarian cultures (and which major culture has not been authoritarian?) not only work against efforts to realize fair, prosperous societies and in turn a world we want to live in as opposed to being forced to survive in it, authoritarian cultures are designed to prevent any such realization. And the principal evidence for this is the deliberate and ardent efforts in every field of human study to eliminate the human factor from our thinking, theories and knowledge, in the name of “objectivity” or “spirituality” or “holiness”, instead of becoming intelligent and wise enough to incorporate it.
Thus, ReLOVEution. As long as phrases like honest politician or loving government or generous business or humble nationalism or peace-loving military or open, inclusive religion continue to be more oxymoronic than matter-of-fact, we need to revolutionize our culture. And, as far as I’m concerned, if our work does not contribute to that end, it’s worth very little. When the ship is this critically close to sinking, we need all hands on deck doing everything they can to keep her afloat. Retreating to a higher, drier spot to play intellectual tiddly winks wouldn’t just be stupid, but criminal and hypocritical. There are a lot of rich, hypocritical criminals walking free at this point.
I hope I’ll see you at ReLOVEution NOW!
Viva la ReLOVEution!
