As 2012 approaches with all the predictions of “the end of the world” what is actually happening is a literal war between two radically different approaches to how human beings organize themselves.  We are seeing this played out all around the world right now and in the political battles between the far right and the far left in America.

The hallmark of civilization from the very beginning has always been the pooling of resources to free up time and the natural creativity of members of society.  To allow for the care of the young, the sick and the handicaped and the old.  Not to do so is the basest level of human existence and the opposite of civilization.  The clear message of the far right in America is this:  we can no longer afford to take care of the young, the old, the sick and the handicap.  That message is one of “rugged individualism” taken to the level of “dog eat dog” and is the natural endgame of corporate thinking capitalism gone wild.

As the progression of the ages switches from Pisces to Aquarius so the basic premise of overall gestalt is changing.  The age of Pisces was the age of the Abrahamic religions, most notably Christianity and the advent of Christianity destroyed the Roman empire with the loss of respect of diversity and plunged the Western World into the Dark Ages.

This is a spiritual war.  The Abrahamic faiths teach of a father god who sits in judgment of all we do, rigs the game to favour his “chosen” who can do any damn thing they want as long as they eventually repent.  It teaches that the world exists only for the exploitation by those chosen people, that those who disagree have no actual rights and if you fail to prosper that is a reflection of the flaws within yourself and you are getting what you deserve.

Goddess consciousness is the exact opposite.  It is embodied with the concept that all of us are in this together, that we are to take care of each other and in the supreme irony, we are the keepers of our brothers and keepers.  The teachings of Jesus were consistent with Goddess consciousness, the practice of christianity are not.  Goddess consciousness is being connected to the earth, the universe and the idea that we are the Divine ourselves, all of us and all around us and that we can aspire to reflect that in our lives and how we interact with the world.  It is the basic understanding of ecology, the value of diversity in the world including all the other animals we share our planet with.  It is a world view of responsibility rather than a twisted social Darwinism.

America is choosing right now which philosophy will dominate the next phase of it’s history.  Which way do you wish to go?  Chose wisely.


Since the early days of the Bush Administration and in particular after the attacks of 9-11 I and others I communicate privately with about spiritual matters have noticed a number of gestalt shifts or reality realignments.  The America of today bears almost no resemblance to the one I grew up in.  For all it’s faults, and there were plenty, the America of my youth still stood for things, good things and the attitude of the average American, if not our government, was one of basic fairness and individual rights.  Oh we had to fight for those individual rights but always with a sense that eventually we would prevail precisely because of the basic instincts of the average American towards fair play and equal opportunity.

The downfall of Richard Nixon energized us with a sense that even those at the top were accountable for misdeeds which was uniquely American.  The change started with Reagan.  It’s a historical fact that the Iran-countra scandal cost Carter the election.  That the neo-neo-cons, mostly holdovers from the Nixon administration, brokered a complex deal that kept the Iran hostages from being released until after the election.  Reagan, the godfather of modern conservatism, then proceeded to explode the national debt to a level that almost was three times anything done in the past…..and was never called out on it.  Bush the elder then came up with trickle down economics or the rich pissing on the heads of the poor and telling them it was raining.  This has been the hallmark of “conservative” economics ever since in a twisted version of the a reverse of the “American dream” which was rapidly becoming the American nightmare if you were lower middle class or Goddess help you, poor. The military industrial complex that Ike warned about when he left office was now basically in full control.  Every political shift from this point on was hard to the right moving the the centre with it.  Workers were no longer participants in the economy as much as replaceable worker drones, unions busted, actual collective bargaining returned to being “communist” in the public mind.

I’ve long said that Clinton was the last actual republican president.  In terms of what the republicans were back in the sixties this is a completely accurate statement.  He actually balanced the national budget, something long thought to be impossible by most economists.  No matter what you might think about him based on the unending attacks on him from the right during his entire presidency, he was a true fiscal conservative.  The right, however, demanded revenge for Nixon and they are still in this mode.  Damn the country, screw the military, the hell with the poor, they demanded never ending revenge for Nixon’s resignation against any Democrat in office.  And they did this waving the flag and branding anyone that opposed them as traitors to the country.  Fox news came into existence during the Clinton administration.  Every last shred of anything America actually stood for ended with the battle for Florida during the Bush – Gore election.  Fox news declared Bush the winner long before the actual news organizations would make a call and those actual news organizations, unaware that Fox did not play by the rules of journalism, followed and set the stage for the Bush v Gore decision by the Supremes.  At that exact moment America ceased to have a legitimate Constitutional government of law.  Make no mistake, history will eventally record that was an overthrow of the American form of government that ended the American experiment.  Everything that has followed has been the systematic destruction of all that made America American.
