After the first Democratic Presidential Debate, Marianne Williamson generated a lot of interest.

On the one hand, her name ended up being the most searched on the internet. With language and demeanor vastly different from the other candidates, people wanted to know who she might be.

On the other hand, Williamson generated a good deal of ridicule. Seth Meyers joked that she clearly won't be around this fall. Ha ha; who would be so foolish as to think otherwise! Kate McKinnon (pictured above) offered a woo-woo Williamson impression that had Marianne eliminating global problems by burning all the sage on the planet. TYT's Brooke Thomas dismissed Marianne as a "vanity candidate" intent merely on selling her books.

All of that was itself laughable for those who know Marianne Williamson. We know she's not a woo-woo lightweight; she doesn't need to sell more books; and if people understand just who she is and grasp her fundamental message, she'll definitely be around this fall.

And that's because her absolutely radical approach to politics supplies the simple key we've all been looking for to solve the endless problems on our national list, be it climate change, the threat of nuclear war, terrorism, or immigration.

Let me repeat: her approach offers a key far more radical and easily understood than anything Bernie or Elizabeth even imagines or dares to say.

- Advertisement -

The key I'm referencing is basic to the teaching of A Course in Miracles (ACIM), which has been the guidebook for Marianne's life and teaching for more than 40 years. Williamson herself describes the course as basic Christian mysticism. It's not a religion; it's not for everyone; it doesn't even demand belief in God. However, it does respond to the universal human quest for ethical principle and spiritual meaning, whether the quest is understood as generated by God, Yahweh, Allah, Krishna, the Buddha, Ultimate Reality, the Ground of Being, Life Itself, or Nature with a capital "N."

But what about that key I mentioned?

It's simply this: take 100% responsibility for your problems and deal with them accordingly.

That's it. And, though difficult to actually implement, that assumption of complete responsibility will go a long way towards eliminating not only personal and inter-personal problems, but all our political conundrums as well.

How radical is that?

It's the opposite, of course, from the approach of Mr. Trump and even of Marianne's colleagues on the debate stage. In contrast to Marianne, every one of them adopts the standard cliched and stereotyped approach so familiar to all of us in our personal lives: I'm not the problem; she is; he is; they are.

In political terms it's refugees, immigrants, people of color, welfare cheats, unprovoked "terrorists," the Russians, Chinese, Iranians, Somalis, Libyans, Syrians, MS-13 gang members, and drug dealers. The list goes on and on and on. All of those included must be punished, subjected to sanctions, bombed, droned, or killed. That's our "foreign policy" in a nutshell.

But we never find fault in ourselves. Never!

Pertinently and most recently, such unwillingness to accept responsibility was expressed by President Trump in his racist harangue against Congressional Representatives Ilhan Omar, Rashida Talib, Ayanna Presley, and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC). According to Mr. Trump all four representatives outrageously blame the United States the problems of terrorism, Palestinian oppression, public misinformation, and immigration problems. Here's what Trump and his audience ridiculed as patently ludicrous:

If Marianne would just express and explain this one ACIM key point in next week's debate, she would surely raise eyebrows, advance her cause, and (most importantly) get the country discussing America's responsibility for the world's problems.

I believe Marianne doesn't dig deep enough into her assertion unless she is recognizing us as the United States of Israel. With over 80 of our Representatives and Senators being dual citizens (Israel/US) and many cabinet members, John Bolton for one who is spending more time with Netanyahu than with Trump recently. Then let's not forget many who were influential when that "new Pearl Harbor event" happened (Zakheim, Wolfowitz, Bolton, et.al.). It seems too coincidental that Israel is in the background as these illegal invasions of sovereign nations take place.

I agree, Dennis. None of the candidates (including Marianne) take a strong enough stand on our relationship with Israel.

I don't like that anymore than the next person and probably a lot less so. At the same time anyone serious about becoming president may be wise not to make too many noises about it. At least not until they get in. I was very disappointed just this morning to learn that Tulsi voted what amounts to being against the BDS movement.

Just read this rather bad news for those of us rooting for TG.

"How are Tulsi Gabbard supporters going to explain away her "yes" vote on the anti-BDS bill? I'm curious.

Because this isn't an outlier- it's part of a long history of deference to Israel's right wing & related aggressive talk towards Iran."

There are moments of truth that must be acknowledged when they occur.


She didn't need to vote, but she did. Yes it's nonbinding but boycotts are a FIRST AMMENDMENT RIGHT! What the hell is all this talk about brothers and sisters dying for regime change when you can't even uphold the FIRST f#cking AMMENDMENT?

After reading Caitlyn's article, these are my thoughts:

Even tho' we know that We and the World are skunked by the Train of Evil, maybe, just maybe, Williamson is worth considering.

Far from perfect, this Oprah darling leaves a lot of holes in the barricade, but if we're not quite ready to roll over and play dead yet...and we can handle one more bandwagon ride 'for the Good'...well, Williamson on the ballot (warts and all)---with her appeal to our higher angels, could be one itty bitty step for mankind. ??

Thanks, Ronnie, for sharing Caitlin Johnstone's article. I find it so interesting that Marianne is generating all that interest on the part of supporters and detractors. As they say, any publicity is good publicity just spell my name right. Johnstone's take seemed fair to me. However, after listening to Marianne for years and having read a number of her books, I'm not sure where the "endlessly mockable" part comes from or the similar characterization of Marianne's language as "all woo-woo and hippiestastic." Still, I agree that Ms. Williamson can roll with it all; and that's refreshing. As for Marianne's policy positions, like Johnstone, I find that some of them (like health care, Julian Assange and the BDS movement) hue too closely to a middle line that gets lost in the typical "boring beige sludge" of standard U.S political discourse. Also, Johnstone's suggestion that abandoning ACIM's "love vs. fear duality" in favor of "life vs. death" might be more compelling to voters. Like Johnstone, I'm glad Marianne's become a thing.

That link wouldn't work for me, which may be a local issue. I searched it and found it immediately and was very glad to see it. I've been a fan of Caitlin's forever and I think she is spot-on with that particular column. Thanks again for recommending it.

Mike is spot on with this piece. What pundits and comedians aren't recognizing is how quickly 'the ground is shifting' with our common awakening. ACIM has inspired me as well, and led to my mission and book, World 5.0 - We Move From Here... ld5.org peace and love

Yes, Jim, it doesn't take a majority to effect the required change in consciousness. The necessary critical mass is far less than most of us think. And Marianne may be functioning as the catalyst our planet and planetary community need.

Hip-shot reaction to OpEd's headline title, I was reminded at once of a Joseph Conrad collection of short stories, especially "The Anarchist" who confesses "I deny nothing, nothing, nothing!" Destructive absurdity read as a boy of about 12 and totally distressed by such a stance. At that age in an icy English prep school I was much nearer to "No, sir! Not me, sir. Wasn't there, sir." But that isn't where Fr. Mike was headed. His essay is a gentle, elegant pitch to own up. Don't dodge. The core of effective leadership in all professions: 'You're not in charge! You are responsible.'

Quote, "'You're not in charge! You are responsible.' Unquote. L.O.L. Seriously, Eric, what exactly does that mean ???? RESPONSIBLE, these days, from my observation of continuing unfolding events, the word RESPONSIBLE has no meaning at all, as NO ONE, IS EVER HELD RESPONSIBLE. Even if they were, there is no mechanism to hold those RESPONSIBLE to account, as to do so, would mean the collapse of the house of cards. From my perspective, NO ONE within Government AND Corporate circles, as well the Dual citizens would ever allow such a thing to happen. Until the PEOPLE of America recognise that ultimately THEY are just as responsible as those above, and are PREPARED to DO something about it, nothing will change. I do not see any willingness by the people, to make any such thing come about, quiet the contrary indeed.

Simply, if a position of leadership is tackled with the hectoring cockiness of "I'm in charge" mentality it will fail. Nations as well as individuals. We embrace life, if at all, by accepting responsibility for our actions and the actions of those who act in our behalf. It's a basic military leadership principle that works across the board. And Eddy is correct: there must be accountability. The scene is not as bleak as he believes it to be, in my estimate. There are good people in Government, uniformed and civilian. What protects America is having a Constitution it has managed to hold on to.

Daniel, I'm glad you mentioned that you had a problem with that link because, it's not working for me either, but only when I use Fire Fox. When I use Internet Explorer 10, it works fine. This is a fairly new development with Fire Fox. By any chance is that the browser you're using? I began to think that Caitlin's website was being blocked.

Reply to Mike and Janet Supriano: Mike, I thought your article was excellent. I agree completely with the points you made. In fact, after reading it, and another recent article of yours about Marianne, I found myself wishing that YOU were the candidate! I'm serious. But since you're not, and it's Marianne we're talking about, I just want to say that I believe most of what she says, but I do understand the "woo-woo" criticism. It's not that she's up there casting spells or anything, but it's her style. She comes across very hyper to me. But I definitely do think this country needs a new vision, and a new direction. We need to have conversations about the REAL issues, like life and death, as you say; about the "what's it all about Alfie" stuff. And of course, Marianne is right. Love is what it's all about. I came across a quote by Matthew Fox recently. He says: "Real love leads beyond the lovers to others. Love expands, is inclusive. It enlarges the soul; enlarges one's actions, one's politics, one's economics, one's thoughts. Love is not self-serving or exclusive. It expands consciousness and births imagination, it struggles for justice, it stands in solidarity, it dares, it fights, it blossoms into compassion." This is what we need and I think this is what Marianne is talking about. The other candidates, with the exception of Tulsi and Gravel, are just so unimaginative, and uninspiring, repeating the same old party line, empty promises that will never be fulfilled, which will never take us to where we need to be anyway. So, Janet Supriano, I think you could be right: "...just maybe, Williamson is worth considering... Far from perfect, this Oprah darling leaves a lot of holes in the barricade, but ..... Williamson on the ballot (warts and all)---with her appeal to our higher angels, could be one itty bitty step for mankind. ?? "

I apologize for the way my above comment printed out. I wasn't allowed to to use paragraphs for some reason. It would have made it easier to read. If your eyes start to cross over, just skip it.

I've had the same problem many times. Find this on your keypad, and put a "p" between, as per

. Hypertext for a new paragraph, as I knew decades ago and had to refresh myself on recently.

Can't help but "think" until enough understand DC just has got to be Babble-on (Israel and or church may just end up the whore.)in Revelations it will one day be thrown down with violence. There is not much doubt DC wants to rule all nations, with her sins growing up to heaven. In a Nation of "We the People" guess all are partly guilty, even if it's the corporations now in charge, as George Carlin called our owners. Don't know what to do for not many care to talk about the reality of this topic applying right now in these latter days, later than ever before. As "I read Revelations 13", this country gets it's authority from the dragon.

And yet, as followers of the Christ, we have faith in the Human One's (Son of Man's) ultimate triumph over all those beasts described in Daniel and in the Book of Revelation. The beastial empires of Egypt, Assyria, Persia, Babylon, Greece and Rome, we believe, are no match for the Kingdom of God.

Ya, but what was kept secret in Daniel 8:26, 12:4 and 12:9 is that stars and hosts of heaven were dragged down here by today's establishment, the horn that grew up to heaven in Daniel 8:9-14 and is trampling them stars and hosts as human beings. The world court of Daniel 7 seats "BEFORE" one like a son of man is brought before the Ancient of Days, on the TV which is the clouds of heaven. That is when those with insight will shine brightly in Daniel 12:3, when they are given control of the TV. (Hey, Ethiopia erupting would make 3 out of 3 of the appointed time of Daniel 11:40-45 with Egypt and Libya being the other 2.)


Jeremiah 23's rebuke of religious leaders is very important, as Jer 23:20 makes clear, with same words as in Jeremiah 30:21-24 where that leader who will be one of them is the branch (One of the olive branches said to be killed in Revelations 11.) of Jeremiah 23:5-6 when Israel will be returned from where scattered and dwelling securely which it was not 2000 years ago. The chapter ends with how to correct the church, giving a stern warning against claiming the oracle (or burden.) of the lord for each man's own words will become the oracle. That is liberty.


This is not cherry picking for could show many more verses which clearly applies to these times. Like don't get any mark to buy or sell and you are either in the book or born again around a 1000 years from now. But I don't think anyone is going to get any mark.


I know these days were cut short by John Lennon's death and the other olive branch, the prince shattered in Daniel 11:22 must never go to the big apple. That is the covenant that opened up hell in Zechariah 9:11 and Revelations 9:1-2: the abyss that the beast up from said to kill them 2 prophets of Revelations 11.


And in Jeremiah 31:31-34 they will no longer teach know the lord (He has been human since right after the bombs fell on Japan.) for all will know him.


I do see the words a few+ places in Revelations that we must overcome. And am quite sure are calling today is to build a brotherhood of mankind learning to share this melting pot thrown down too and are riding back home on.

You probably just have to check what switches you've got on in Firefox. That's usually where such a problem comes from, unless the content you're trying to access is geo-blocked from your location.

This lady is talking about a very important message, of Government showing some real compassion towards the people. Not the prosperity theology of the religious right of you deserve your plight if you are poor and we deserve our riches stuff.

You're right, Michael. Her message has nothing to do with the Prosperity Gospel you describe. Marianne champions the very ones the prosperity gospel blames -- just as Jesus and his early followers did in relation to those the religion of their time repudiated.

I Blame France and England for most of the worlds problems today, ever since the Sykes-Picot agrement the middle east has never been the same. Europes raping of Africa and Asia for it resources and slave labor seems to get overlooked while America shoulders the blame.
