Triadic Philosophy is nonviolent by default


Triadic Philosophy is nonviolent by default
This century is envisioned as a time of nonviolent revolution
This nonviolence requires no demonstration or central organization.
It's synonym is noncooperation.
It is the mass expression of unwillingness
to participate in the denial of human rights.
It is trans-national, universal.
It is Oblomov saying, I would prefer not to.
It is shutting down in any way that seems appropriate.
A nurse might go to work but he would signify his stance of
An accountant might tell her clients that she will
work at home.
Nonviolence will in this guise become the
mass mode of expressing the people's will.
Passive occupation of one's private space 
will be its mark.
Refusal to engage in the operation of society 
beyond what seems appropriate and necessary.
There might be an identifying mark such as a
color or a phrase
like Slowing down or On vacation.
The objective is mystification,  achieving the scenario
of global media seeking to learn from 
corrupt, rights-denying authorities,
What's up?
It is this incessant question that will
make the engines of communication deduce 
that the denial of rights is what's up
and that it is no longer acceptable.

I see this developing in China
and in the United States
and eventually everywhere.
It is a nonviolence
that is natural, unforced and efficacious.

It is the product of
Triadic Philosophy
whose sign is
infinite patience
and living by
ontological values
that are aesthetic in their effects.

"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.
