* PLEASE JOIN MY CRISIS COMMUNITY! *


PROGRESSIVE. Patient follower of Norman Goldman. So-called atheist. Pantheistic, animalistic, future Universal Life minister. Dilettante psychic. Existentialist. Humanitarian. Environmentalist. Thoreau-inspired Anarchist. Pragmatist, real-life Green. Democrat with a spine. Pot-smoking Libertarian. Person w/ CFS and NO pot. Naturalistic conservative. Preservationist. Christian in the Jesus sense. Patient follower of Alex Jones. Marginal entrepreneur. God in training. Rad man with a mad sense of tapestry. PROGRESSIVE!

Well, I guess I could take the time to mention, "what I am," politically. Beyond, most importantly, being ME - and then being madman101 - and a great lover of dogs - and a good cook - I have always been a "RADICAL MODERATE." - I invented that term, btw, a long time ago. In Europe, I might possibly be called a "Social Democrat." Or, you could say I am NOT an "ANARCHIST" but a "TRANS-ANARCHIST", who sees anarchism as an anachronism - impractical, but possibly good as a MEANS towards some progressive end. Or, you could call me a GREEN INDEPENDENT PROGRESSIVE. That works well for me. I include "GREEN" to say: that I am pro-environment, pro-decentralisation, pro-animals' rights, anti-climate-changers, (I believe both man AND the sun, etc., "cause" GLOBAL WARMING), and to emphasize that I fall on the LIBERAL side of the spectrum. As a progressive, I accept wise ideas from both the left and the right. I honour the progressive Republicans of yore, like Teddy the Trust-buster; as well as the likes of Teddy the Greed-buster. Most of the "MIDDLE" today is accelerating towards a false future. It is dominated and manipulated by vested interests, corruption, banksters and campaign money. It is composed of old selfish death-fearing baby boomers, old wealth, (not dissimilar to selfish, fear-driven TeaBaggers in many ways), and 1980's yuppies or "Invisible-Handers". It is similarly composed of lame partisan GOPpers and Democratic Blue Dogs, and all who sheepishly follow behind them, trusting in the ERRANT status quo. So: I call all this "THE FAUX MIDDLE." It could also be called, "THE ZOMBIE MIDDLE." Lamer than an old goat's cane. Funded by China, USCOC, foundations, KOCHS, DICKS, PENISES, and - what are those tiny bananas? Yeah. Those. In the closet, etc. And don't forget the whole corporatist FASCIST front. But there ARE MANY people fallen OUT of this great American sieve, who are poor, or black, or disabled, or unions, or small business folks, or Catholics, or Methodists, or Hispanics... Americans... And these more and more are building a NEW, TRUE MIDDLE. And they are getting their energy and their messaging from INDEPENDENT people on the "far left," (including "LIBERALTARIANS," OCCUPY, and Greens), as well as from the "far right," (Ron Paul Libertarians, Constitutionalists, the ORIGINAL Tea-Partyers, and such. There continues to be a great deal of dissonance between these two "far-end" poles, being played and preyed upon by the elites of the Faux Middle, who succeed by making us fight amongst ourselves. But, more and more, these two far ends are coming together, as I have known they would, most all of my life. And they are merely waiting on the second great SHOE TO DROP to shake them into union. Unfortunately, a rise of NAZI-style fascism may also, or instead, rise up at the same time, manipulated by the meat-isn't-murder, zombie corp-oratists, and may even come from the marriage of many or most of the members of these two far poles, in violent reactance to the FAUX MIDDLE status quo. Whatever may serve the elites - whether through war or revolution or whatnot, that will be the choice sought to be taken, unless these TRUE NEW AMERICAN folks of the independent NEW MIDDLE become aware of the dangers of Fascism, or of the idealistic and TRAGIC violence of revolution, and NIP THESE DANGERS IN THE BUD, through reliance on their own SELF-CENTERING. After all, this is a personal dynamic. Just like my journal.

Worm and Wonder – © madman101

See the pewter raindrop scoff upon the walk,
See the autumn limb clench against a winter wind
Hear the march of nematodes beneath forgotten logs:
All the world's a lot of bluff and blunder -
Nothing more than worm and wonder.

Green our Beltane days of melting acrimony.
Green the gunning sky before a twister's raid.
Green the garlic mustard, bastardizing snow and Sunday.
The moss sleeps deep in thought and thunder.
All the world is worm and wonder.

Keep the leaves, brown, abounding for the tricksters,
Stir the twigs and dusty rot into a pool of muck and moil,
Heap the past, the past consuming, up into a mound of dearth,
And feed the teeming creatures soiling under.
We're lucky we're not caught in worm and wonder.

My lady danced upon a silver marble block,
Feathers in her hair, and red rose petals at her feet,
Underneath a sun-light dome and solar-powered clock,
Singing sweet, whilst came the word of oil and plunder.
A world away of worm and wonder.

We plant a spade, a garden tea, all the more for victory,
But wherefore is my boyhood roam, my winding panoply,
Where ants were lords and snakes great dragons of the sea?
The land awaits its endless turn asunder.
Grey the mind of worm and wonder.

See the pitch upon this lightly frosted forest glade.
See the life-infested humus slightly heave and roll.
Hear the march of nematodes beneath forgiving blades:
Lay me in the heart of waste, yet wonder
Of our saintly days of work and wonder.
