“Faith is just an inordinately litigated form of Hope.”
Sadly, wealth is rarely matched with non-transactional good will & nameless generosity.
“If you’ve got time to type a conversation… you’ve got time to pick up the phone & have it!.”
“Conversations with sound, tone & inflection are now considered analog…passé; and we are the poorer for it.”
I think we all have to play with fires in Life. Otherwise, we’d have no clue how to put them out.
“Oftentimes, the toughest “Nuts” to crack are usually the ones with a Wealth of Empathy & Wisdom walled off…if you can crack the dam they’ve spent a life building…yours & their lives will bloom like a Valley Flooded with Life-Giving Water.”
“Good fences don’t make good neighbors, as we’ve been told…they foster enmity.”*
*in reference to Nationalism…globally.
How about we solve this whole “Wealth Distribution” problem in a cyclical, organic & logical way by taxing only the top wealthiest ten percent of Corpo-citizens to fund the exact programs that feed back into their industry? For example:
•Why aren’t the most wealth addicted entrainment companies on both coasts being taxed to fund putting the arts back in our schools? (You want blockbusters?…Then invest in the kids that will become the “over 15,000 were people employed in the making of this film” a factoid we are “Treated To?” at the end of every film we see now.
•Why aren’t we taxing the the most profitable Privatized Prisons to fund rehabilitation & reparation programs for non-violent offenders? (…and backdate that shit-We have to acknowledge our past mistakes & make good on doing better from then; not from twenty or four hundred years later on when we admit our mistakes)
•Why aren’t we using Federal & State level Asset Seizure profits to pour Figurative & Literal nutrition into the communities that are depressed & damaged because of these crimes? (I’m sure we have people competent enough economists to figure out a metric for that.)
•Why aren’t we appropriately taxing the Corpo-citizen CEO’s who’s companies employees are responsible for the lion’s share of America’s GDP both in Goods & Currency Markets to pay for Universal Healthcare? (If you want market floors of any kind to be staffed & managed-Pay them a living wage & pay for their healthcare.)
•Why are we using the term Corporate Citizens casually in progressive conversation but have yet to push for a Formal Definition…including the layout for “Corporate Citizen’s” rights, duties & responsibilities to Our Country regarding its own damage footprint, investment footprint & last but definitely not least- proportionate taxation as a “Corpo-Citizen”?
•Et Cetera…(You see where I’m going with this I’m only as “woke” as my mind is capable but everything I’ve mentioned seems (to me & maybe you?…or not.) like simple organic sustainable logic but Our Country has lost its marbles of late.)
Personally, I’m looking for aggressive Climate & Social progression. Along with, Criminal Justice Reform, Sustainable Wealth Redistribution in the form of Taxation & Representation Reform including Election Policy. As we reach for a better future shouldn’t we acknowledge that our constitution is supposed to be a “Living Document”. It was designed to give us the right to change & amend things that are outdated with the change of time; excellent example being the Electoral College & our system of Ethics & Justice regarding the “American Freedom” we boastfully bluster on about without the actions to keep it so, currently.
A candidate that speaks to these things is who I’ll be casting for in 2020.
“Sorry, but I’m with Lilith & Eve on this one, Adam & God. “Obey & Know Nothing or be demoninized by men & each other for a couple of millennia”…maybe more; if men aren’t encouraged to Evolve Emotionally & women aren’t Embracing Empowerment.
“If my Empathy, believing in basic human to human decency, makes me seem week to you…then I am unapologetically happy you think so.”
