Both my dear old friend Claudia and I have been Trump supporters ever since he was elected, a fact that she, for one, cannot mention where she lives, lest her business be disrupted by angry Democrats! I don’t talk about it much here, either, since I live in an academic town, governed by “leftists.”
However, both of us have been, of course, appalled all along at Trump’s seeming disconnection from Mother Earth, his uber-capitalist view that more industrial growth, with resource extraction and poisonous emissions, can solve all human problems, and not even taking notice that we live on a finite planet.
Our support of Donald Trump has more to do with his nature as a disruptive force to business as usual. He wants to clean up corruption, he says, especially focusing on the global trafficking of children for pedophilia, satanic ritual sacrifice, plus blood, organ and tissue. Children, as a commodity, like any other, used, abused, and even killed, for blackmail. That must stop. And he knows it.
So, for me, it’s first things first. I presume for Claudia as well. How we work with Mother Nature, however, must come next.
So, to our great surprise, my Crones Counsel roommate Claudia and I found ourselves at odds over the question of “climate change.” She is all for Bernie Sanders and his proposal a 16 trillion dollar Green New Deal to counteract the effects of “climate change.” I scoffed at Bernie, his proposal, saying it’s just another version of the U.N. program to bring in the New World Order by scaring the world’s peoples to death over “climate change,” which, I argued, is not primarily caused by human activity, but by changes in the solar system at large.
See for example:
NASA admits that climate change occurs because of changes in Earth’s solar orbit, and NOT because of SUVs and fossil fuels
Climate change hoax COLLAPSES as new science finds that human activity has zero impact on global temperatures
To me, what’s important is that, of course, while we need to pay close attention, each of us, to our own “energy footprint,” we also need to realize that if the climate is changing due to larger solar system changes, then there’s nothing we can do about it, except what is now being called Deep Adaptation, which assumes “inevitable near term social collapse due to climate change.”
Now whether or not “near-term social collapse” is on the near horizon, I don’t know. But to assume that we can alter the solar system itself is, obviously, absurd. And to think that we can stave off “climate change,” if this is the case, means ultimately, that we instill fear, guilt, and demoralization, rather than empowerment.
I find much lauded, 16-year old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg’s remarks particularly chilling, in their effect on young people — and old people! Now tell me, what will be the effect of this already famous quote:
Panic! Yes! And then what?
Claudia wants the crones to begin to support young people and their causes. Good idea. But I sure don’t want to support the U.N. Agenda to take over the whole world via fear-based “climate change.” Centralization is NOT the answer, I argue. De-centralization, everywhere, is. Power resides at “the bottom,” in Earth herself, with us as her stewards. Pay attention to our localities. What is going on? How to connect with both each other and with Earth herself? How to “grow community from the ground up“? Earth is our Mother, Teacher, Healer, and Guide. Never forget that fact.
Meanwhile, here’s a very interesting video that aims to show how a movement that appears to be one thing may actually be its opposite.
But wait! And then, at the end of the video, at the very end, the disembodied voice announces that this movement is Capitalist (and thus bad). And that, wouldn’t you know! the solution is Socialism!
Oh geez! There we are, battling over a polarity. Thinking that one is good and the other bad. Not realizing that balance is always needed, and a dynamic balance at that, between any two poles that appear as opposites.
