More Stacked Images - How Shall We Build for The Future?

I see the future integral and car free 
beyond the suicidal commitment to fixed fossil fuel disaster
I see an eminently logical conclusion
that restores diversity and face-to-face
and over-leaps the horrendous boundaries we have erected 
 by creating what is in effect a pariah class
of persons taken to be not who they are
but who we project them to be
The integral community of the future is car free
It has a dense population living in complete privacy
within community
It walks to work to play to sing to dance to be
It has intentional sitting areas
There are enough people within a mile 
to enable an economy to grow and flourish
The Top First 
The dank and darkish hole of a past
that has devolved into an oil soaked sprawl
Second  A Plethora of Options
challenging the existence of a dark dank future
Third  An initial Iteration of
a walkable cyber-community
where principles of pattern language
and invention of utterly new construction methods
begin to create safe and secure
How shall begin
We already have begun
We know image one
We sense image two
It remains to venture into iteration

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
