Hold on if this is Arab Spring Two wait for Arab Spring Three

This Arab Spring is a Peircean blunt truth Second
Spring Two is organized like the Tea Party
a force of intolerance
of unhelpfulness
of anti democracy
and most of all of idolatry
All seconds have a Third
The Third will be a United States beyond
the nightmare of Romneyism
And an Arab complex
beyond the hard right forces there
The Third Arab Spring
will witness a literal leap of
WOMEN
from the horrible patriarchy that still holds sway
and the liberation of  
of religionists from
the lesser elements which plague all religions
most specifically the Abrahamic faiths
Abba's way is the Third Spring Way
and triumphs because it manifests the values inherent in all people
Do not be cowed by the Second Sham Arab Spring
Understand that a wiser growing up will occur
Both in the Arab sphere
and here as well

Why is dormant money uncertain - because the future is becoming obvious

Trillions sitting in banks not knowing what will happen
Don't blame it on regulations
Don't blame it on anyone
Blame it on the realities we know but will not face
We know and will not face climate change
It is a fact not a political matter
We know and will not face the end of oil
It doesn't look that way but oil is finite
It will run out and in any case will become prohibitively expensive
We know and will not face the economic disfunctionality
of sprawl
Sprawl spreads us too thin to create viable local economies
Sprawl requires a commuter society at the wheel driving everythere
Sprawl requires you to invest in two cash cows - for vulture capitalism
Houses
Automobiles 
A policy that says we will make more 
concentrated communities that are car free
where one can walk to whatever one needs within a mile 
and where streets are safe for kids and everyone else
and where we begin to articulate neighborhood
and neighborliness once again
is the actual solution
We are on the verge of this awareness but few have 
the will to proclaim it
So we live with the very worst uncertainty
Where everything that happens is not quite real anymore

The Paradox of Nonviolence - Fallible Folk Act to Suppress Hate

We are a spectrum low to high and bad to good
Imperfect as we are we have the power
to slowly move to doing as we should
We take a stand we act we sieze the hour

Evil is measured by relative degrees of harm.

Evil is measured by relative degrees of harm. To be delivered from evil  is to be  free from receiving or inflicting abuse.  Bully...
