That was very well written.
*****A centralized state which organizes society from the top down, but with strong democratic input from citizens.****
That is supposedly what the USA has now and you can see just how corrupt the process has gotten.. Greed and status tends to waylay the best intentions.
***** The government is controlled by a constitution - a commons - which puts the wellbeing and spiritual equanimity of its people at its center.*****
The only people that seem to be put in the center are the elite .... There are countless examples throughout history that I ain't making that stuff up..
******The constitution now supports the right of all human beings to be afforded a healthy and spiritually satisfying life.****
Who decides what makes me healthy and happy ? ARE We all going to convert to the one true government sanctioned religion or belief system ?
I see many people who seemed to be happy on their own but if I had to live the way they do I would not be happy at all..
Usually when anyone talks about equality it is bringing everyone down to the lowest common denominator with equally shared misery .. But... since everyone is in the same boat it only takes a few generations for those affected to think it is normal..
Now IMO in the not to distant future when more and more can not get a job or earn a living there will be a push for some type of universal income.. They have to do that to stop all the mayhem that will happen if the masses are starving...unless everyone is moved into a controlled FEMA caged type environment... There are a few articles and videos which say that has been the plan all along..
The education system in many countries is only there to baby sit and just get the population smart to do what they are told to do, Obey. Independent free thinkers who come up with a new gadget or way of doing things that infringe upon the established elite's money/power are usually swatted like a house fly. ESPECIALLY IN THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES where the rule of law is based on who you know more than the law itself.. That stuff happens all over the world and not just 3rd would countries..
Sorry I do not mean to be rambling and everything you say may come to pass.. I am glad I will not be around to see it.... those who are around will have to buckle under to keep their masters happy or fight to the last breath.
Every mother is supported and helped in her birth - more than the mere pregnancy, but the entirety of the process, from the emotional support required for a healthy birth, to the psychotherapy which helps the vulnerable mother understand the traumatological signature within her psychological experience; to understand the source - or the why - of why you are the way you are - why you've suffered, is to partially repair the process; but the process is completely repaired and transcended when one experiences one pain being compassionately known by an Other The compassionate and loving face releases something in the traumatized observers psychoneurological structure; something has been 'unknotted'
Although gods and demons are no longer taken to be real, in the sense that gods and demons are understood as attractors/singularities that collapse spatiotemporal material organizational states into an ordered whole, and hence, they are not related to as real outside the events humans create between one anotherl. This course is hygenic- a way to explain what other schools of thought - what was called "occultism" - failed to properly explain. The universe is great, and consciousness, as grade 12 students learn, is its most remarkable emergent property
This course is hygenic
The General Education Board was not interested in encouraging critical thinking. Rather, its focus was on organizing children and creating reliable, predictable, obedient citizens. As award-winning former teacher John Gatto puts it, “school was looked upon from the first part of the 20th Century as a branch of industry and a tool of governance.” The Rockefellers, along with other financial elite and their philanthropic organizations (such as the Gates, Carnegies, and Vanderbilts) have been able to mold society by funding and pushing compulsory state schooling for the masses.
