Common Ground in the Age of Trump – From Resistance to Pro-activism

A Conversation with Author and Activist Shariff Abdullah

“There are no sides, only angles. And when we see it from the right angle, we are all on the same side.” — Swami Beyondananda

At a time when resistance seems “irresistible” and Trumpism and anti-Trumpism have dominated the conversation, is there a way to create a proactive, unifying vision and a movement that activates and accelerates that vision?

Our guest this week, Shariff Abdullah, says yes, there is. And that pathway is a world designed to work for all.

Shariff knows all about conflict and gang rivalry… he grew up in a rough neighborhood in Camden, New Jersey where teenagers who would have been best off working together for the betterment of all joined gangs that fought one another. Out of this potentially “down-bringing” upbringing, Shariff got his law degree, and has spent the better part of his lifetime working on behalf of mutual understanding, inclusivity and turning the ideal of “oneness” into the real deal of creating systems and situations where we can indeed create a world that works for all beings.

As an author, Shariff has written several paradigm-shifting books, including: The Power of One: Authentic Leadership in Turbulent Times; Creating a World That Works for All; Seven Seeds for a New Society; Practicing Inclusivity; and The Chronicles of the Upheavals.

In this week’s conversation, we will discuss a proactive rather than reactive way to trump Trumpism by stepping off the battlefield and “daring” to speak, stand for, and work for what we all know is possible. We’ll address those classic questions, “what’s so, so what and now what?” as we learn some key distinctions between reactive activism and “proactivism” where we design a new game, rather than playing by the rules of a fixed game.

From the Founder of Solartopia – From Nuclear Nightmare to New Clear Future

A Conversation with Historian, Author and Activist Harvey Wasserman

“Those who fail to learn the lessons of history condemn THE REST OF US to repeat it.” — Swami Beyondananda

This week Wiki Politiki is fortunate indeed to welcome one of the foremost progressive historians, anti-nuclear activists, and outside-the-matrix political “uncommontators” of our time, Harvey Wasserman.

Harvey is a life-long activist who speaks, writes and organizes widely on energy, the environment, history, drug war, election protection and grassroots politics. His breakthrough book, Harvey Wasserman’s History of the United States, was first published by Harper & Row (NY) in 1972, and featured an introduction by Howard Zinn.

His mission is the permanent shutdown of the nuclear power industry (he actually originated the phrase “No Nukes”), and the birth of Solartopia, a democratic and socially just green-powered Earth free of all fossil and nuclear fuels. Unlike many activists these days, he knows what he is FOR, and his sharp commentary cuts through both neoconservative and neoliberal BS. His recent article, 57 Unpatriotic Ways the Corp/Dems Have Enthroned Trumputin skewers the Democratic Party establishment corporatocracy, and he is indeed a “clear voice in the bewilderness.”

Harvey has been a political activist for over 50 years. He marched at his first demonstration in 1962, helping to de-segregate a roller rink in Columbus. He briefly met Dr. Martin Luther King on the Meredith March for civil rights in Grenada, Mississippi, in 1966. As a student editor at the University of Michigan Daily, his 1966 editorial “The Use of Marijuana: It Should be Legal” went global on the wire services. Active in the movement against the war in Vietnam, Harvey marched on the Pentagon in 1967 and the Chicago Democratic Convention in 1968, and also helped found the legendary anti-war Liberation News Service.

In 2007 Harvey joined with Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne and Graham Nash to form NukeFree.org as part of a successful national grassroots campaign to stop $50 billion in loan guarantees to build new reactors.

Our conversation will cover those three key questions that cultivate political understanding and focused and effective activism — what’s so? … so what? … now what?

Speaking About the “Unspeakable” - and Original Blessing

Speaking About the “Unspeakable” – and Original Blessing

A Conversation with Theologian and Author Matthew Fox

“Regarding the silence around ‘the unspeakable’ — can we talk?” — Swami Beyondananda

This week Wiki Politiki is deeply honored to welcome one of the most influential — and controversial — theologians of our time, Matthew Fox. A Catholic priest with the Dominican Order, he wrote a paradigm-breaking book in 1983, Original Blessing: A Primer in Creation Spirituality that first got him censured and silenced by the Catholic hierarchy, and later excommunicated.

Given his “unconditional release” by the Catholic team he was picked up on waivers by the Episcopal Church in 1994, and two years later founded the University of Creation Spirituality in Oakland, California — later moved to the Nairopa Institute in Boulder, Colorado. He has been called by some theologians “the next Pierre Teilhard de Chardin” because of his global, ecumenical and evolutionary approach to bringing spirit to life.

Our Wiki discussion will focus on his 2016 book, A Way To God: Thomas Merton’s Creation Spirituality Journey. In addition to being Fox’s mentor and inspiration, Thomas Merton originated the term “the unspeakable” (see James Douglass’ book on the Kennedy assassination, JFK And the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters to describe the American government’s descent into toxic secrecy. In his book, Matthew Fox offers compelling evidence that Merton’s “accidental” death was murder (see Wikipedia account above) and Matthew will offer his perspective about why THOMAS MERTON died, and why it matters.

We will speak about the “unspeakable” — remember, Swami says “the truth shall upset you free” — and then speak even more forcefully on behalf of “original blessing” that brings the evolutionary paradigm of love, awareness and connection to what had become a moribund theology.

If you’re ready for a frank conversation about the nature of “evil” and a mega-dose of the antidote, please tune in to hear this visionary, missionary, solutionary.

The “Clean Money Revolution” - Money As a Sacred Tool

The “Clean Money Revolution” – Money As a Sacred Tool

A Conversation with Author and “Mission Venture Capitalist” Joel Solomon

“In our current system where ‘ethic cleansing’ has been rampant, ‘clean money’ is money that’s been laundered at least twice.” — Swami Beyondananda

Clean money and filthy lucre — is there a difference?

Yes, says our Wiki Politiki guest this week, Joel Solomon, who calls himself a “mission venture capitalist”. He is the author of a new book The Clean Money Revolution: Reinventing Power, Purpose, and Capitalism, and is the chairman of Renewal Funds, one of the largest mission venture capital firms in North America, investing $98 million in entrepreneurs with organic food, green businesses, and social policies.

Money, says Joel, is energy, and the right use of money is akin to the right use of energy. At a time when the “casino economy” — where small numbers of people make large amounts of money, and large numbers of people subsist on small amounts — he points the way to making the world a better place, and not just a “bettor” place.

Is capitalism a failed and obsolete system? Or can it be used to leverage (oops, I mean “loverage”) our resources more resourcefully and use our intelligence more intelligently? Can we return (advance) to the Native Americans’ notion of making our decisions as if they impact seven generations back and seven forward? How can use our financial resources to restore our water, air, soil and food when so many forces are degrading them? Can we manage the human “ego-system” to re-harmonize with the planetary eco-system?

We’ll address these questions and more as we converse with an individual who has used inherited wealth for the greater good, and has coached thousands of others to do the same. We’ll also discuss his revolutionary ideas that evolve venture capitalism from “vulture capitalism”, and encourages philanthropy to “get the lead out” and shift way, way more of its funds from charity’s “usual suspects” to endeavors that will move the dial in a time of economic and ecological crisis.

Finally, you’ll hear one individual’s story of how the “uncommonly wealthy” can shift resources to benefit the commonwealth, and find ways that YOU — regardless of how much or little money you have — to do the same.

And … if you’re ready to be inspired by a “$100 trillion vision” for a renewal economy, tune inthis Tuesday, June 26th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET: http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

Comedy as “Sacred Space” and Cartoons on the Radio – How Levity Uplifts Us in Unfunny Times

A Conversation with Comedian Alicia Dattner and Cartoonist Brian Narelle

“Why humor and politics? Because there’s definitely something funny going on.” — Swami Beyondananda

What is the state of satire when “reality” is more perversely paradoxical than any comedy routine?

What happens when much of comedy censorship comes from … the left?

What’s funny in a world that has become insanely serious?

To address these sticky icky questions on this week’s show, I’ve invited two of my favorite “cosmic comic co-hearts”, Alicia Dattner and Brian Narelle.

Alicia Dattner is a “wise gal” who’s done everything from stand-up to comedy coaching to solo shows, including One Life Stand, The Oy of Sex, and Eat, Pray, Laugh! She was voted Best Comedian in both the SF Weekly and SF Bay Guardian Reader’s Polls. Her fifth show, One Life Stand, a standup comedy special, is currently touring. She’s also creator of The Spiritual Comedy Festival and teaches highly-acclaimed storytelling workshops under the banner Solo Showdown. http://soloshowdown.com and http://aliciadattner.com

Alicia has also made the bold statement that the comedy club is “sacred space” where “anything goes”.

Brian Narelle is a multi-talented comic genius who began his career as the star of the cult classic film, Dark Star, and has been a successful puppeteer, animator and cartoonist. As puppeteer, he worked for the award winning children’s programs, Bingo and Molly and Buster and Me featured on the Discovery Channel and NBC. In addition to illustrating numerous books (including my own Swami For Precedent), he has taught cartooning at the Charles Schultz Museum. Brian now has a new book of cartoons, Surviving Trump — The Lyin’ King. His work can be found online at: https://www.narellecartoons.com/

An Independent Movement to Activate "the Progressive Majority" -  A Conversation with Nick Brana - Founder, and National Director of Movement for a People’s Party

"The Republicans?  They've sold their soul to the devil.  Not the Democrats.  They've just RENTED theirs." -- Swami Beyondananda

A couple of weeks ago, we had as our guest on Wiki Politiki Erik Fogg, whose book, Wedged: How You Became a Tool of the Partisan Political Establishment and How to Start Thinking for Yourself Again talks about how both political tribes are mobilized by fear and anger to take polarized, intractable positions.  A recent book by a Yale professor John Bargh, Before You Know It: The Unconscious Reasons We Do What We Do, goes even further in suggesting that liberals can be made more conservative by invoking fear, and conservatives more liberal by creating a sense of safety.

Which brings us to this week's guest, Nick Brana.

Nick Brana is the founder and National Director of the Movement for a People’s Party, a coalition of progressive organizations for a "nationally-viable party for working people". Nick had been the National Political Outreach Coordinator with the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, where he lobbied the superdelegates and elected officials for Bernie, organized his political meetings and planned convention activities. He went on to become a founding member of Our Revolution and its first Electoral Manager, where he created an endorsement plan and assembled the candidates.

However, in early 2017, Nick Brana quit Our Revolution and launched his own independent campaign to "draft Bernie" as an independent candidate, citing the intractability of the Democratic Party apparatus and their resistance to genuine systemic change.  At a time when more and more people -- particularly young folks -- are turned off to both parties, can a "third party" become an actual "first party"?

Will this party merely triangulate progressive voters, and ensure Donald Trump a second term?  Or can the platform bring together progressives and populists who voted for Trump because the Democrats have been "tone deaf" to their needs?  Can their platform create enough unity, coherence and "safety" to bring conservative populists on boards as well?  What IS the strategy to take advantage of the growing disgust with the two parties that currently control our politics?

Tune in to this lively discussion on how we the people can "overgrow" the current pay-to-play political duopoly this Tuesday, June 12th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET:

Spiritual Climate Change: Beyond “Hopium”, Denial and Despair

Spiritual Climate Change: Beyond “Hopium”, Denial and Despair

A Conversation with Michael Dowd, Author of Thank God for Evolution, and Michael Mielke, Author of Delusions and Contradictions

“Is climate change real? Well, I just took a vacation in the future and spent a fabulous week in Tropicanada.” — Swami Beyondananda

As the two political parties keep our attention focused on “identity issues”, the elephant (and donkey) in the living room is the IDENTICAL ISSUE we face — our human civilization spinning itself outside the web of life. And as Swami has said, if we lose the Earth there goes the GDP.

This week, two Mikes share the mike to speak freely and frankly about the climate change issue — how and why it has been ignored and side-stepped, and why our species has a spiritual imperative to face the music and find new ways of dancing together. As Michael Mielke points out in his recent e-book, Delusions and Contradictions, neither conservatives nor progressives have REALLY confronted climate change, and the changes we need to make to preserve some form of human civilization on our planet.

The conservative form of denial is more blatant and obvious — dismiss the whole thing as a liberal plot to enrich George Soros. The progressive camp, says Mielke, is strung out on two forms of “hopium”. First, there is what he calls the “Tinkerbell Effect”, the hope that the magic of technology will come up with a fix that will allow us to continue using the energy we are using and sustain a civilization. The other form of denial is imagining that the reforms of the Paris Agreement (which we are not even following) will be enough to prevent the collapse of our civilization and mitigate the climate disasters that are already happening.

Meanwhile, there are those climate change activists who have fallen into despair and resignation, as they sense that it’s too late, and that society will not and cannot make the necessary changes in time.

That brings our second Mike to the mike … Michael Dowd is an Evangelical Christian (don’t worry, his wife Connie Barlow is an atheist scientist) who has written a wise book with the whimsical title, Thank God for Evolution. Dowd maintains that it is our spiritual imperative to step away from otherworldly conversations about the nature of God, to focus on the this-worldly reality of “the God of nature.” Dowd sees evolution as a “reality-based creation story” where “ecology becomes theology” and religion focuses not on the miracles of the past but how we collectively become “the savior of our future” — the “prodigal species.

If you find yourself stuck in hopium, denial or despair about the future of human life on the planet, join us for this sober yet inspiring conversation about what can be done NOW while we are still in “pre-disaster” mode — and how we can honestly engage friends and family in this life-or-death conversation.

How the Two-Party System Gave the American People a Wedgie

A Conversation with Erik Fogg, Author of Wedged: How You Became a Tool of the Partisan Political Establishment and How to Start Thinking for Yourself Again

“We have a deeply-divided body politic in this country. Half the population believes our elections are broken, the other half believe they are fixed.” — Swami Beyondananda

I know I have shared this story before, but given our current political “shituation”, it’s worth sharing again. On the Sunday before the 2016 election, 60 Minutes gathered 25 prospective voters from across the political spectrum together, and asked them, “Who will be voting for the candidate of their choice this Tuesday?”

Three people raised their hands.

They were then asked, “And how many of you will be voting AGAINST another candidate?”

The remaining 22 people raised their hands.

How did this come about? And how is it that the American public has become so polarized that the only thing they agree on is that the system isn’t working?

Wedge issues, says this week’s guest, Erik Fogg. He is the author of Wedged: How You Became a Tool of the Partisan Political Establishment and How to Start Thinking for Yourself Again, and he maintains that the “political industrial complex” that benefits from a polarized electorate has insured that the divisive “wedge” issues that KEEP us polarized are kept front and center.

His book — and this interview — offers heartening information on how we the people can liberate ourselves from our “addiction” to being adrenalized by polarizing issues, and become wiser citizens working in accord.

Erik Fogg is a graduate of MIT, where he studied mechanical engineering and political science. He earned his Masters of Science, co-authoring a number of academic papers while a student and while working with MIT, Harvard, the United Nations, and other NGOs on conflict resolution. He then spent four years as an operations and management consultant, improving organizational effectiveness and culture for a number of clients across North America.

Erik currently resides in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is the CEO of MidTide Media, and co-founder of Something to Consider, focused on improving American political dialogue by undermining the destructive mindsets that ail politics in the US.

Here is a quote from his book:

“A wedge has been driven into American politics by powerful political, social, and economic incentives that are very difficult to overcome. The middle ground has fallen out of the political process, leaving power in the hands of hardline partisans that frame the national agenda and direct our political energy towards emotionally satisfying–but politically unproductive–tribal warfare.”

Find out how we HAVE liberated ourselves from at least one polarizing issue, and what we can do to shift the energy from tribe vs. tribe to one big tribe, where we learn to “disagree productively.”

The Future of Children - Providing a Love-Based Education for Every Child

The Future of Children – Providing a Love-Based Education for Every Child

A Conversation with Educational Pioneer Phil Moore, Author of “The Future of Children”

“We need to evolve from children of God to adults of good.” — Swami Beyondananda

There was a joke years ago about how we will know when the world is right-side-up: Schools and children will get all the resources they require to thrive, and the Air Force will have to hold a bake sale every time they want to build a new bomber.

This joke has gotten less and less funny over the years, particularly now when the word “school” is too often paired with the word “shooting”. As the toll seems to be mounting from our societal “priorities” that put nurturance last, here comes a book that not only asserts that children will have a future, but tells us a “love-based education” is the key to that future.

Meet Phil Moore, who, as director of Upland Hills School for over 40 years, helped provide that love-based education, in an environment where each child is known, and both freedom and structure are used appropriately. Influenced by J. Krishnamurti and R. Buckminster Fuller — who called the process of ordinary education “de-genuising” — Upland Hills embraced the task of bringing forth the genius in each and every child, in the context of nature and community.

Upland Hills School is truly a one-of-a-kind — and now that Phil is director emeritus, he has taken on the mission to export the principles, practices and lessons of Upland Hills School to the world at large. In the spirit of Bucky Fuller, he has named his platform for transforming education “trimtab” — which is the small device that moves the rudder and helps the ship change course.

If you’re curious about how children can become citizens of an evolutionary future, and how teachers, parents, grandparents and caring adults can create a loving learning atmosphere for kids, tune in this Tuesday, May 22nd at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET.

We Humans Have MORE THAN ENOUGH to Transition to an Ecological Civilization!

A Conversation with Timothy Nobles, Author of MORE THAN ENOUGH

“I consider myself an optimistic realist — to me, the glass isn’t 95% empty, it’s 5% full.” — Swami Beyondananda

As a follow-up to our conversation with David Korten last week in regards to what the Chinese call “an ecological civilization”, this week’s guest Timothy Nobles challenges conventional and even unconventional wisdom by asserting:

We have much more than enough capability and resources for all of us humans to live in graceful abundance, with no one who is now prosperous needing to revert to a less soul-satisfying lifestyle. Simultaneously, we have more than enough of everything we require to rapidly convert to a skillful symbiotic relationship with the Earth and with all other life forms on Earth that we can sustain for hundreds of millions of years.

Whoa, wait a minute.

Just about everyone else who is paying attention is lamenting how UNSUSTAINABLE our current system is, and how even the most optimistic projections conclude human society will have to live with more scarce resource. According to Global Footprint Network, we currently use the equivalent of 1.7 earths worth of resources. So where will this “graceful abundance” come from?

An engineer by training, Timothy says it will come from radically reapportioning and re-purposing what we use now, on the basis of a new (or maybe old) rule for humanity: The Golden Rule.

While that might sound idealistic, Timothy’s life experience is very much in the “real-dealistic” realm. He lived for ten years on The Farm, one of the largest and most effective experimental communities that emerged from the spiritual revolution of the 1960s. After leaving The Farm, he worked for many years in the R&D laboratories of the world’s largest technology companies, including IBM, Intel, and Texas Instruments. His web site is: http://www.morethanenoughnow.org

In his playfully illustrated and well-reasoned soon-to-be-released book MORE THAN ENOUGH: How We Enroll Billions of People to Implement Global Prosperity and Restore the Earth, Timothy cheerfully and relentlessly offers plenty of evidence of our capabilities — not just as technologists, but as caring and compassionate humans. For the first time in recorded human history, he asserts, we have the means to self-organize in a “non-dominational” way … and to experience true equality and individual and societal fulfillment.

Is he a hopeless hopium addict or is he on to something?
