Triadic Philosophy says religion will morph into spirituality over time.

BLOOM
In Genius, Harold Bloom says wrongly that
the dawning age 
will be one of theocracies. 
Triadic Philosophy says religion will morph 
into spirituality over time.
The suppositions that
power religious division are
false by simple logic.
The creedal basis of Christianity is 
essentially idolatrous in its exclusionary focus.
It supports institutional 
and priestly arrangements 
that reduce rather than enhance 
prospects for human fulfillment 
and ethical progress.
In reality, we are seeing a
growth of tolerance
and a decline in religious allegiance.
Web-assisted, if you will.
The world,
 as Bonhoeffer understood,
is coming of age. 
The way ahead is secular, 
but not devoid of spirituality.
Theocracies will go 
the way of dictatorships.

"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.
