An open space for global conversation
Lets speak to the deep meaning of the vampire myth in relationship to modern day. How many people, especially many of us rationalized liberals, realize that myth speaks to reality. Our issue in not understanding is our lack of an intelligent understanding of metaphor, which epistemologist Gregory Baetson defines as “a language that connects.”
Lets take Dracula, for…Continue

As we all watched the Occupy Movement erode, and as I witnessed an emotional force there more interested in opposition than support, which is of course the nature of emotional force, I returned my focus to alternative pathways. In 2012, I began researching the possibility of creating a "time bank" as a tool for crowdsourcing support for all positive avenues to a future of sustainable prosperity - and by facilitating all approaches, even ones in apparent opposition to each other, finding a…Continue

Little Jimmy was crying to his mommy that his brother hit him he is a mean person to him. His brother never got the chance to present his and since he was older he was expected to know better. You might say that it was easy to demonize the old brother because the parents had established an acceptable pattern of conclusions based on past behavior..

I came to the Occupy Cafe to see if anyone had posted the sad news. Cheryl Honey died on April 25 of an apparent murder/suicide. It is still under investigation. Cheryl's work of Community Weaving was a gift to the world and her community. I'm very sad to hear of her death.

David Graeber, author of Debt: The First 5000 Years, has a new book out. The Democracy Project starts with Graeber discussing the supression of Occupy Wall Street. That's part of his larger thesis that our political and economic institutions are so scared of change that they are more interested in making us believe change is impossible than they are in actually functioning effectively. You can …Continue

Last week I wrote a piece called, "Diversity ... Obama are you listening." I wanted to take the topic of diversity and stretch it past just physical attributes; race, gender, ethnic origin and sexual persuasion. I wanted to bring attention to what I think its true definition is ... diversity of the mind. While race, gender and ethnicity definitely contribute to one's world view ... there's a lot more…Continue

Well it's 2013 and the "Insane Clown Posse" masquerading as our elected officials almost succeeded in hurling themselves, and us included, off the proverbial "fiscal cliff." Fortunately sanity showed its face, however briefly, long enough to avert the plunge into the abyss. You have to give the clowns credit though ... with each day they seem reach new level of lunatic performance, with the "tea baggers" refusing to relent the headlining role. But we haven't seen anything yet. February will…Continue

Due to a FOIA release, we know that Wall Street didn't even bother to pretend that the government puppets it spends billions electing were in charge, and met directly with the FBI to plan the suppression of Occupy. After Wall Street coordinated the DHS violence against Occupy, Occupy responded by helping to get out the vote for the Wall Street owned government.
When everyone who voted for a war criminal starts wishing me peace on earth.
And accusing me of negativity when I say in return, "Bah, humbug!"

Many voters believe that voting can bring about social progress through legislation, but I've been unable to find any concrete examples of this happening in the United States. There has often been legislation that appeared to have the intent of reform, but such reforms have proven useless or merely temporary at best. That's because legislation is subject to interpretation by the Supreme Court and to selective enforcement by the state. We're told that the reason…Continue
