The Abundance Hypothesis - Round One

The Slow as Molasses Press

Abundance is inherent in Reality

This is the prime hypothesis that can move 
us past the wreckages of communism and capitalism

Abundance is the energy and availability of all that exists including us and all matter

Past ideologies have assumed that we must harness and
secure finite wealth by means of political power and armed might

Past legal systems have lodged ownership either in states or in the coffers of individuals

Past legal systems have protected and hallowed the notion of property as wealth

Past legal systems have given individuals and the state immense power to deter any violation of the sanctity of property

There can be no justice on earth until it is conceded that reality is inherently abundant

Until we concede that reality is inherently abundant all false justifications of ownership remain sanctified
and an excuse for violence

Virtually our entire history can be explained as a gloss on the false assumption that there is not enough
to go around

The anomalies of the present are due in large part to the fact that people are becoming aware that
it is within them to create abundance

The collapse of all present systems awaits only the playing out of the abundance hypothesis
by millions of iterations all over the globe

"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.
