Every one of my posts is an introduction to this blog which is an introduction to angles of visions shared by many but realized by few.

Part of the problem is one of expression, my own. I know what I want to see but I cannot draw it or even describe it very well.

But it is the solution in almost every area - politics, society whatever.

So here is a chunk. We could profit massively from a mass migration.

We do not need to be in this or that city. With a bit of brain power we could create the cells of urban living anywhere at all.

So go to the states where Romney won. Buy up defunct towns. Build new car-free cities on high enough ground that they will not flood when it rains.

We can solve the problem of polarization and social injustice by making residence voluntary and building in diversity from the gitgo.

Communities would have populations of 5-10K and everything within a walk of up to a mile.

Communities would be car free.

Construction would be cyber-eco past the clunkiness of most comtemporary construction.

This will revolutionize the whole world because it will involve applying smarts to human settlements and introduce community safety and weather-resistance into the discussion ,

Oh, and ...

Once we have the majority in these states we can sleep better on election night.

"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:

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.
