Triadic is our future should we choose to grasp it.

Teach every child on earth tolerance, democracy, 
helpfulness and non-idolatry,
Merely repeating universal values to oneself
lodges ethics for all in the mind.
Education boils down to maxims that 
rise up as one considers things.
Ethical values lead to action that can 
move the world
 toward truth and beauty.
Choose the foundation triad Reality Ethics Aesthetics.
Move past 2000 years of binary idiocy
Binary nominalism has rendered the triadic mode 
of the schoolmen weak.
Cast minary aside and take a deep breath.
Concede we are holographically 
united with Reality.

Concede the world runs on 
the values that we choose.
Stand tall in the knowledge that we are all artists,
all creators, all doers.
Triadic is our future
should we choose to grasp it.
Move in the 
spirit of Gandhi, Einstein,
King, Mandela, Francis.
Enron, Big Oil, Consumer Glut.
Reject subservience to
intolerance, plutocracy, 
the harmful and idolatrous.
Choose pilgrim's progress
over Superbowl Boulevard.

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 …
