Mid-afternoon, Day 2

From all the evils of racism to cleansing them and all else in need of eradication from our lives: Tikkun Olam. A magazine with this title awaited new attendees at the registration desk. Let us purify the Earth.

Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun, author of five books, spiritual activist par excellence, began his presentation with the news that Jews voted 70% for Hillary Clinton in 2016, the largest percentage of any group. The problem, he added later, is that the Democratic Party in its present state shares values with the Republicans, the worst values in society, the money/power continuum.

When he entered activism in 1964 (that would be at age 21), he said, there were so many disconnected silos. MLK hadn't become an icon in 1963 with a speech that began, "I have a complaint." We need a new bottom line now to replace the money/power hegemony.

"Positiveness" is the bottom line of spiritual progressives, encompassing the proposed Constitutional amendment summed up by the acronym ESRA: Environmental and Social Responsibility--all to be accomplished by PUBLIC FUNDING.

1) Every corporation with more than $50 million will have to obtain a new charter every five years, with proof of its adequate if not better contributions to society;

2) This will be decided by a jury of ordinary citizens from all over the world;

3) When a corporation moves from a locality, it must pay for the damages accrued by said move; and

4) All people must be educated on corporate and environmental responsibility.

Details are available at the rabbi's site Tikkun.org/esra/gmp.

Sponsored by Rep. Keith Ellison, who will be the next head of the DCC, the Global Martial Plan will be reintroduced in Congress.

Those who voted for Trump were suffering from a "crisis of insecurity in their families." [Note that Trump's ratings, lower than when he took office, are now the lowest enjoyed by any chief executive since polls first began to focus on this.] We need to win back these people--the evangelical contingent is already disappointed. What needs underlie Trump's bizarre strategies?

We must stop blaming those who oppose us. We want to win, not just to be right.
