Triadic Philosophy - We Call The Shots

Is it within human power to 
achieve global harmony?
It has never been anywhere else.
We have always had a fail safe 
way to start over.
We could always call upon Reality
and receive a response.
The Captain Ahabs of the world
need white whales to confirm 
their impotence
when they choose to defy limits
and fall into the binary trap..
The self-forgiving Falstaff's need only the
capacity to see through rationalization
to injustice and hypocrisy.

We are at the crucial time 
when the clothing of the
emperor is shedding fast, 
revealing nothing but the 
same old same old 
everybody knows.
Protagonist antagonist hook
sell book but that plot too will fail.
The new plot is triadic. 

We have the power in one day to 
change the course of history.
Individuals are porous but they are also
the units of actuality when it comes to
unfolding life on earth.
As democracy is achieved,
power is spread.
As communication is enhanced,
rights and values can be heralded.
All things tend toward truth.
We have always been 
the determiners of history.
The choices we make
are the consequences we create.
Live with it.

"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.
