Why do people wish to create a sustainable neighborhood? Better yet, why are most of us stuck in the system we are currently in? What power do you think you have? None? Apparently, for we tend to turn our freedom and power over to the corporations and the rich, what many refer to as 'The Man!'
Consider the last election. Trump vs Hilary. Good God is all I can say! And we think we have choices in our so-called democracy? No, as late comedian George Carlin puts it, we don't have a democracy, we have owners. We don't have power, the Koch Brothers, Rothchilds, Rockefellers etc. are our Lords and Savior.
My question to the reader is: What if you voted to empower yourself, your family and your community instead of the likes of Trump and the Koch Brothers?
The readers' imagined response is: But this sentence means our being responsible, Burl! What the Sam Blazes is wrong with you, boy? Are you a hippie or something?
God forbid we take responsibility. To take responsibility, you don't say, "oh, its Obama's fault, or Trump's, or the newly-cast owners of this country on the DBC Network." We all need to take responsibility to birth and form a sustainable and love-filled future. No external god is needed, be he in the form of Trump or someone else, even Hilary Clinton. To do this, we need to end our love affair with politicians.
Yes, we need a divorce from external gods, including politicians and corporations. We need to go internal, into the depths of our naked being. Ready to be a stripper?
Next, lets discuss Trump's love for power over others, especially the ladies. Does this mean he is going to "screw" the labor class? Absolutely, and he won't even give us a kiss or a dozen roses. Labor is a feminine process. Way to go Archie Bunker. Oh, ye of the working class, place your head on the chopping block. Make sure that executioner's axe is sharp!
Have you ever heard of Eric Fromm's book, Escape From Freedom? Is this what we are doing"surrendering our power to the likes of a Donald Trump (or even a Hilary Clinton if she had won). Get your neck on that chopping block boys and girls!
