Stampede to the Right

Every day we see greater verification that the hierarchy-conservators are moving farther right. They are moving farther and farther from center out to the end of the see-saw. Hierarchy conservators, even though they look ridiculous, are trying anything to counterbalance the number of people who are rejecting hierarchies in their lives, as they try to keep themselves from lifting into to the air in defeat.

This is very good news because the death struggle of the hierarchy is progressing nicely.

We can make sure that they don't take us, our country, and our world down with them. We all are active participants with roles to play. See this page on our website:

My God Tells Me I Can Have It All

Humans managed to thrive on the Earth for thousands and thousands of years without destroying the planet. Then here appears a religion that sets up a hierarchy with humans on top. In the words of Santorum, "I'm talking about the belief that man should be in charge of the Earth and should have dominion over it." Santorum went so far as to say that Obama adheres to "some phony theology, not a theology based on the Bible," because of Obama's environmental policies.

Thanks, Santorum, for passing on to us such a wonderful example of the extreme views of the death struggle – going farther out on the see-saw to balance growing opposition. You're showcasing the outdated hierarchies that create a hierarchical God who would instruct us to destroy the Earth to increase our own personal riches.

Out of Date

As the death struggle continues, the hierarchy-conservators will have so few people supporting them that they will lose their power to significantly impact our country. Here's an excerpt from an article in the New York Times that shows we're getting closer to that point:

"Watching the Republican Party struggling to agree on a presidential candidate, on wonders whether the GOP shouldn't just sit this election out – just give 2012 a pass.

You know how in Scrabble sometimes you look at your seven letters and you've got only vowels that spell nothing? What do you do? You throw your letters back in the pile and hope to pick up better ones to work with. That's what Republican primary voters seem to be doing. They just keep going back to the pile but still coming up with only vowels that spell nothing.

There's a reason for that. Their pile is out of date."

It Gets Better

We loved the video, "It Get's Better" from the San Francisco Police department. The police chief starts the film with a strong message to LGBT youth: "It does get better, and until it does, we in the San Francisco Police Department are going to stick up for you." Then several staff of the department tell their stories.

The film gives a very strong message – re-enforced by the power of police officers in uniform – that bullying of LGBT youth [top of the hierarchy behavior] IS NOT O.K., and what IS O.K. is that that LGBT youth [the lower groups] can be themselves and look forward to a better life. Congratulations to the San Francisco Police Department.

Deception Rejection

Desperate Lies – we can count on observing more deception in months ahead as the death struggle progresses. So it's time to get prepared so we can avoid getting sucked into those games.

Here's a wonderful article from Forbes – an analysis of organizational lying that uses the Komen Foundation as an example (linked below). The Komen debacle serves to remind us that the view from inside an organization can be very different from the view outside.

Similarly, what appears as lies to outsiders seems honest to hierarchy-conservators who are operating with a small amount of true information. Hi-Cons go through elaborate contortions to support their false beliefs. Therefore, they appear comical, crazy, ridiculous, or devious to those of us who are not so clueless.

Inevitable Death

"California's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage deserves to be swept away into the dust bin of history, as do similar laws elsewhere across our nation," starts an editorial that states that the California decision is a step toward the inevitable dismantling of gay marriage bans and other laws that place gays and lesbians at a legal disadvantage.

The sexual orientation hierarchy is a main hierarchy-du-jour, and, as the article states, any mainstream acceptance for this discrimination will eventually fall out of favor as have many others over the years.

Just one more indication that hierarchy conservatives are grasping at straws - putting lots of time and energy trying to survive what is inevitably their own death struggle.

When It Comes Back to the Source

Today at the swimming pool hot tub, Charlotte listened to a man tell a joke that she had also just read on the internet (synchronicity!) so we decided to pass it on.

The punch line works because growing up in a hierarchical society, we would expect the bottom of the hierarchy (in this case the woman) to adjust to and take the brunt of the wants of the top (in this case the man). In this story, unexpectedly the husband is forced to be held accountable for and absorb the negative effects of his decision, when he had assumed that his wife would be the one to change her life to suit his whims.

A couple had been married for 40 years and were also celebrating their 60th birthdays. During the celebration, a fairy godmother appeared and said that because they had been such a loving couple all those years, she would give them one wish each. Being the faithful, loving spouse for all these years, naturally the wife wanted for her and her husband to have a romantic vacation together, so she wished for them to travel around the world. The fairy godmother waved her wand and boom! She had the tickets in her hand.

Next, it was the husband's turn and the fairy godmother assured him he could have any wish he wanted, all he needed to do was ask for his heart's desire. He paused for a moment, then said, "Well, honestly, I'd like to have a woman 30 years younger than me." The fairy godmother picked up her wand and boom! He was 90.
