Triadic Philosophy Ontology Non-Idolatry Community Unity

Ontology exists in the realm of reality
and is the seat of the three active values and their underlying value  
The three active values are tolerance democracy and helpfulness
The underlying value is non-idolatry
These are universal values that transcend 
creed or religion or any other limiting category 
Ontology embraces the stuff of reality
of being 
It is the substance of what is
The terms we use to describe what exists
are our feeble means of recognizing in being itself
the signs that point us to ways of being here and now


(Because of its status as ontological
non-idolary is a first
It is the willed iconoclasm that withdraws
worship from any human idea notion person or object)

(Community is always a challenge
to non-idolatry
representing as it does obligations and ties
and and other barriers
to the exercise of the profound freedom
that is the gift of non-idolatry)

(Unity is the means by which 
the conflict between
non-idolatry and community can be resolved
Unity of  all
Unity within
Unity of purpose
Unity of understanding)

"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.
