DREAM BIGGER, MODERNS!
Who doesn’t recognize that every time we make laws against something, the lawless thing inside us finds new and clever ways to work around them?
Who doesn’t recognize that the only way we have to enforce the laws we make to bind the actions of corporate people is to fine them?
Who doesn’t recognize that these mega-criminals simply pay the fines, and then go back to their business as usual—raping, pillaging and destroying the Commons?
Who doesn’t recognize that “privacy” as we have known it has functioned most reliably as a screen for criminal behavior of all kinds?
Who doesn’t recognize that if we want clean Water—physical, economic, emotional, mental and spiritual—we’d best stop pretending that we can tolerate the dumping of poison into the Water?
Who doesn’t recognize that our persistent human tendency to act as if anything our physical senses cannot readily perceive doesn’t exist—or at least can’t hurt anyone—is a MASSIVE ECOLOGICAL PROBLEM?
Who doesn’t see that as long as we continue to act that way in our “personal” lives—in our “private” lives—we will continue to enact this terrible habit in our collective, “public” affairs?
Yes, if we want clean Water, we’d best stop pretending we can dump our “private” poisons—our “white lies”, our dirty dealings, our “secret” perversions and side hustles in the Water that all must drink.
Who is ready to recognize that the end of privacy as we’ve known it could be a good thing?
Who is ready to seize the opportunity inherent in this moment of global breakdown to make it a breakthrough for all our relations?
Who is ready to leap beyond who we’ve already been and all we’ve already done?
Warriors of the Rainbow, arise!
We have nothing to lose but these ugly old chains!
And really, honey, those things are SO last millennium!
