Both the left and the right are essential. The "Answer" is not to make one of them triumph over the other.  It's to recognize the necessity of contributions from both to the societal dialogue.

 

Like a bird, we can only fly if we use both wings.  Both have a part to play. Both have a role.

The Left evolves society, and makes it better.  More compassionate.  More sustainable.  More just.  More free.

 

The right exercises caution, to make sure the changes proposed are actually good, before going ahead with them.

 

Both are necessary, to have a healthy culture.

 

Just like in a car, you need two pedals: brakes and gas.

Without the gas, you get nowhere.

Without the brakes, you shouldn't drive at all.

Our society has some issues.  It's consuming the planet it lives on.  People everywhere are plunging into poverty.  Freedom is eroding, and authoritarianism is creeping.  Governments have become calcified, totally unable to respond to the needs of their people.  We need change.

 

But we also have to think deeply about what kind of change we need, and really think it through - and not just immediately jump on any idea that sounds halfway decent.  We've got to really come up with a plan - one which addresses the problems at a deep enough level.


The ill-thought-out coronavirus lockdowns showed us exactly what happens when we're too quick to obey the orders of the government and media, without thinking about the actual logic and science (or lack thereof) behind those orders, and without examining the larger agendas at work, or the long-term consequences of the strategies we adopt.

 

We didn't think about what kind of totalitarian, soulless society we were building in our panic, and whether or not a medical fascist global dictatorship, with contact tracing, medical police forces, "Immunity Passports", forced vaccinations, internet censorship, and top-down control by an un-elected labcoat mafia might actually be worse than whatever virus they were claiming to be fighting.

And it's a good thing the right slammed on those brakes, isn't it?

The pattern is older, however.  Take the "Green New Deal", for instance.  Many people jump for joy upon hearing the mere mention of it, because we assume that "all ideas for a better world are inherently good ideas."

 

But what if they're not?

What if they don't address problems at a deep enough level, and therefore end up being counterproductive?

If you really think hard about electric cars, and self-driving cars, you can see that they're terrible ideas.  Really, they're awful.  Electric cars would start a new race for rare-earth mineral mining concessions and unleash terror upon the living land perhaps even worse than fossil fuel drilling, and self-driving cars are a technocratic dystopia filled with microwave radiation. 

 

And neither of these admits the deeper truth that the roads themselves are a bigger ecological burden on the planet than the cars are!  The future has to be one where we evolve BEYOND cars.  Not by inventing some new dazzling transport vehicle that flies - but rather by restructuring society itself to be local again, so that we no longer need individual vehicles. 


The problem has to be addressed on a level of depth sufficient to actually solve it, or what's the point?

We can't just go with any shiny new idea.  We have to really think this through.


We need a real plan - a comprehensive vision of how we want the future to look.

The Left is the wing most open to new ideas and more eager for change.  And since technocracy is a TYPE of change, the Left is more open to it than the Right is.  Just like any change.

 

More likely to latch on to technocratic proposals.  More vulnerable to deception by the technocratic agenda.

 

And that is why the Left needs The Right, for Balance.  To stop technocratic proposals, before they get imposed.

 

By listening to the Right, the Left can understand the flaws in technocracy, and the dangers of each technocratic proposal, and avoid that path, and choose instead a path that's wholesome, natural, sustainable, and grounded on a solid, Nature-based spiritual foundation.

Peacemaking Series

2. Peace Between Left and Right

 

The Left and the Right are more than just political tribes or ideologies.  They are metaphysical elements of Reality, similar to yin and yang.

As such, they are equal stature and importance.

They each fulfill a vital function:

The Left moves society forward in evolution, toward a more just, more compassionate, and more enjoyable world for All.  

The Right provides caution, to make sure the changes are actually positive,
because not all changes are good; some changes aren't well-thought out, and we need someone to say "Hey, whoa, careful there, are you sure about that?  That's a huge change!  Think about it before you do it!"

 

To use an analogy of a car, the Left is the gas pedal, and the Right is the brake pedal.  You can't drive without gas, and you shouldn't drive without brakes.  No sane person would try.

And yet, for some reason, our landscape has become divided and polarized, with most people identifying solely with one half, and deriding the other as "evil."  


"I'm a gas-pedal person, and I hate brake-pedal people!  The brake-pedal is bigotry!"

"People who use the gas-pedal are morons!  Let's just sit where we are, and never move!"


This dumb "war" between the Left and the Right needs to stop.  It's destroying everything, ripping us apart from one another, and making every problem unsolvable.  

Peace begins now.  If you're here reading this, you probably recognize that it's time to heal this arbitrary and capricious divide, and reunite the human family.

So where do we start?

Let's start with the biggest complaint of both sides:


"The other side is @#$%ing CRAZY."

Yes, whether you're on the Left or the Right, chances are, you think the other side is just out of its mind - completely beyond the ability to reason with.  It inhabits a completely alien reality, a parallel universe in which every fact of the world, and every principle of Reason, is reversed.

And you're not wrong.  The other side IS crazy.

But you are partly responsible for their craziness.  

Let's explain.

You see, the reason any side is crazy is due to lack of communication with the other side.

 

Without the Left, the Right gets crazy.

Without the Right, the Left gets crazy.

Without the other side, a side doesn't get the fullness of thought.

Without the other side's input, its thinking veers off further.

Without both sides, only half of the mind is thinking, and whatever it comes up with will lack the influence of the other side. 

 

So, whichever side you're on, the cure for the opposite side's distortion is the restoration of communication with your side.

 

The most effective thing you can do is to communicate.  The worst thing you can do is shutdown conversation and refuse to talk.

 

"But they're CRAZY!"

 

If the other side's craziness alarms you, that's all the more reason to restore communication, because the crazy comes from lack of it.

 

If you never hear X ideas explained, and only ever hear Y ideas, you'll gravitate towards Y thinking.  If the imbalance continues, you'll eventually fear X ideas, and their proponents.

 

So the cure is to talk again.

 

"Can you explain how it works, in practice?"

 

Sure. 

 

There are two vicious cycles that are perpetuating all of this.  We'll explain them both.
 

 


First, How Lefties are making Righties crazy:
 



1.  Human society evolves.  People do bad things - to other people, to animals, and to the ecosystem - but slowly, old barbaric practices are phased out.  As Dr. King said, "the arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice."

 

Lefties, being the gas pedal for social evolution, figure the steps out first, and then seek to help enlighten others.  Some people are receptive to making changes.  Some are not.

 

Righties, being the brake pedal, are more reluctant to change.  They continue to act in an un-evolved way, doing things they shouldn't be doing.  It's the function of the Left to enlighten them, and teach them a better way, but...

2.   Lefties get angry at Righties for failing to evolve as quickly as Lefties, and ostracize Righties for their shortcomings.  Instead of a campaign to educate Righties by elucidating the reasoning behind the social changes Lefties want to implement, Lefties instead wage a campaign of condemnation and social isolation against Righties, which can be termed "Confrontational Activism."

3a.  Being condemned and hated causes Righties to withdraw from Lefties, and erect defense mechanisms that make it even harder for Lefties (even nice, conciliatory ones) to reach them.

3b.  Furthermore, some Lefties go even further, by cutting off communication with Righties, so that, even if the Righties want to communicate, they can't.  This gets taken to the extreme, when Righties get deplatformed and banned from social networks, so that even other Lefties can no longer talk to them.

4.  Being isolated and cut off from all Leftie voices causes Righties to have no more input from Lefties.  Now, no Leftie ideas can reach them, and the only voices that can reach the Righties are other Righties.   This creates an echo-chamber, a thought-bubble - whatever term you want to use - in which the same Rightwing ideas get bounced around over and over again, with no Leftwing thoughts to balance them.  The Righties feed off of each other's thoughts, and they become ever more extreme.





"So it's all the Left's fault!  I knew it!"

Hold on there, partner.  It's not all their fault.  It's partly yours too.  Righties are perpetuating another vicious cycle of misunderstanding. 

 

Righties are making Lefties crazy.

Now, How Righties are making Lefties crazy:
 


1.  Righties, being the brake-pedal people, have a tendency to be resistant to social change, even when the changes are proper and healthy.

2.  Lefties try to explain to Righties why they should change (evolve) their habits.  At first, they're polite and respectful about it.  But they're met with derision and apathy from the Righties.

 

They try again, but nothing changes.

 

Weeks, months, and years go by, and the Righties continue the same harmful habits, refusing to evolve.  Lefties keep trying to talk to them, but Righties keep laughing at them.

3.  Lefties become frustrated, and angry.  

4.  Righties point to the Lefties' anger as evidence that Lefties are unhinged and crazy.  This further cements the idea in Righties' heads that they're the correct ones, and Lefties are wrong.

 

5.  Thinking Lefties (and by extension, Leftie ideas) are crazy, the Righties hold even tighter to their habits, resisting change even more stubbornly, even to the point of caricature.

 

6.  These stunning displays of apathy toward others' suffering convince Lefties that Righties are pure evil, and can never be reasoned with.

 

The Lefties then get more frustrated, which perpetuates the cycle.

Over, and over, and over again.




 

"There's no way I'm gonna talk to an Alt-Right person!  The Alt-Right is racist, misogynistic, speciesist, homophobic, xenophobic, and bigoted in all sorts of ways!  They're Nazis!  They're fascists!  Talking to them would legitimize them!"

First of all, if someone is really holding deplorable ideas, ostracism only makes the problem worse.  It leads to thought-bubbles, where only one set of ideas is available.  This lack of communication between Left and Right is the primary cause of the development of deplorable ideas in the first place.

There is a racism problem in the Alt-Right.  It does exist - although it's not as bad as you think (link).

Most of the people on the Alt-Right aren't even bigots in the first place.  They're not racist, not misogynist, not LGBT-phobic, not xenophobic.  You just think they are because the corporate media has been blasting you with propaganda to give you that impression.  The media lies to you, to keep you divided, because the Establishment wants to keep us all divided, you see.  Divided, we're easier to keep under control.  Don't fall for it.

Nevertheless, some are indeed racist.  The problem does exist. 

However, a partnership with the Alt-Left is exactly the thing that will cure it.

 

When Alt-Righties start meeting and talking to Alt-Lefties, and hanging out, and organizing together, they'll find themselves making black friends, female friends, immigrant friends, queer friends, and so forth.  Meeting actual people always softens bigots.  Having direct, amiable social contact with people in a particular group is the greatest and most effective medicine for preventing and curing bigotry against that group.

In fact, many Alt-Righties have experienced social rejection from people on the Left, and they developed their racism and misogyny and speciesism and other bigotries as defense mechanisms to cope with it.  That doesn't excuse bigotry, of course... but nor does it excuse social rejection.  That stuff is harmful.  If you keep doing it, you're contributing to the problem. 

So stop rejecting them.

"You want POC, or immigrants, or LGBT people to have to put up with bigots, and listen to them "spew hate" in their faces?"

Peacemaking can be a complex process.  If it were simple, everyone would have done it already.  War is usually easier... but it won't lead us anywhere, except to destruction. 

Peacemaking can be messy.  It can bring up difficult emotions.  We don't want people to simply sit there and take abuse.  We advocate nonviolent communication, in which feelings (including anger) can be expressed in a safe, structured context that facilitates healing.

At the core of any bigotry, be it racism or sexism or any other kind, is anger.  The person feels hurt in some way.  They may be blaming the hurt on people who weren't responsible for it - e.g. an entire race - but the feeling itself is still real, and needs to be dealt with.  And if you're a Leftie, and you've been to college, and taken psychology/sociology courses and all of that, and you know how to use NVC, then you're well-equipped to help them.

Don't think of it as hate - think of it as anger.  The proper way to process anger involves expressing it.  The healing of relationships always requires the expression of suppressed anger (and other feelings).  There can be a safe "container" for it, of course, in the form of structured, NVC (non-violent communication) sessions - this is fine, if it's what you need to feel comfortable.  But it needs to happen in some form - communication must be restored. 

No one is an illegitimate person.  Everyone matters.  Even the loathsome among us are still living beings, with feelings, and they are part of mass consciousness, and their minds influence the mass-consciousness aggregate.  You can't isolate them from society, because society is an ecosystem, and whatever happens in one place affects the Whole.  This means that racists, misogynists, fascists, all kinds of bigots, and yes, even Nazis, are part of the ecosystem of society, and you have to address them - and address them as people, not as things.

The good news is that addressing them as people is what heals them.  They've never been treated as people before - not by anyone on the Left, at least.  The Lefties who interacted with them showed them nothing but spite, condemnation, and ostracism.  But if you start showing them some compassion and empathy, they'll see that there's a good side to you, and maybe a good side to POC as well, or immigrants, or women, or whoever it is they've been fixated on.  You can bring them out of their dark tunnel and into the light of the liberal, multicultural world, and they won't be racists, misogynists, xenophobes, or fascists anymore.

With peace made, you'll have a massive new voting and organizing bloc on your side - in fact, the reigning one, the one that's currently on the ascent all over the world.  You'd actually start winning.  Because, don't forget, the Establishment is your common enemy.  They hate it as much as you do.  They'll work with you, if you'll work with them. 


Question:


"But I don't wanna make peace with the other side. I wanna annihilate them!"

Answer

As long as the Left wants to annihilate the Right, the Right is going to want to annihilate the Left.

 

And vice versa, of course. 

"But they ALREADY want to do that!  I need to defend myself, by annihilating them, because they already want to annihilate me!"

They already want to do that to YOU because they think YOU already want to do it to THEM. 

 

That's how wars work.

 

Neither side really wants to fight, but they're afraid that the other side wants to fight them, so they feel they have to fight the other side first.  That's how wars work.

 

And you fix it with a peace treaty.  With both sides agreeing simultaneously to lay down their arms and simultaneously make friends.

 

That's what treaties are for.  

"Alright, so how do we make a treaty?  Do you have one ready?"

Yes, we have a peace treaty ready, and we've published it on  (petition site),  so that you, and everyone else, can log in and sign it, making known your desire for Peace. 

But wait.  Before we get there, we need to explain one more thing first. 

The Left-Right dynamic is the political manifestation of a far more ancient and fundamental relationship.

The Left and Right each represent the collective consciousness identity of one of the genders:  feminine showing up as the Left, masculine showing up as the Right. 

If we wanted to use mythological terms, we might call them "Goddess" and "God."

Since the gender dynamic is the root of the Left-Right dynamic, achieving Peace in the political arena is possible only through Peace in the sexual one. 

Peace Between Left and right rests upon Peace Between the Sexes.

3. Making Peace Between the Sexes

Our planet's in trouble.
We've been in a bubble.
We're turning our beautiful world into rubble.
It's not just our tribe, and not just our nation,
not only our culture and civilization;
the danger is facing the very foundations
of all Life and balance within the Creation.

It matters not what label you call yourself,
or in which ideology you enthrall yourself,
whether you're a black panther or a white nationalist,
a radical feminist or a men's rights activist,
a conservative who pines for the days of yore,
or a liberal who likes when there's gays galore,
whether you're young, or whether you're old,
freethinker or someone who does what you're told,
a queer or a breeder,
a slave or a leader,
atheist or believer,
poodle or retriever,
richest and poorest, fattest and thinnest,
we all need the Earth, or else we are finished.


The Alt-Right is not inherently "bad" - it does have some valid things to say, on subjects like the importance of local communities, and economic self-sufficiency - as well as the dangers of imperialism, and censorship. 

 

Rather than "bad", it's unbalanced.  It's not being kept in check by its natural compliment: the Alt-Left.  

 

The Right is unchecked and missing its complimentary opposite.  And this type of power is what's making it so wacky, and so in thrall of its worst aspects, like xenophobia and nationalism, racism, eco-denierism, and economic monarchism. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


They got the feeling right, but the dates wrong. they don't go back far enough.

What they see as golden years were only golden for a s elect elite - and only superficially.  While ther as wealth, and "greatness", and "glory" (whatever tf that means), there was not inner satisfactoin  -not even among the elites.  Especially not among the elites.  Oppressors are even more psycholigcally twisted than those whom they oppress. rich people are the most neurotic.  think of a Roman emporor, and you're probably hitnking of one of the most tortured souls in recoreded history. 

The Athenian "golden age of democracy" was a gilden fairy tale covering up a dark underbelly of rampant pedophila and slavery of absolutely epic proportions.   The British Empire produced teh most asphyxiating sexual repression in human history, along with the most extensive worldwide genoice and cuoturea destructin ever perpetrated.  Early America was built on the backs of slaves, slave-like wage-laborers, and the near-total hackin gff of an entire limb of the human genetic tree.  The 20th century saw a world put into deeper and deeper technocratic hypnosis as the industrial machine increased its worldwide ecocide by an exponential curbve.  All of these "golden" periods had an economic model that was unsustainable, that involved indefinite exponential expansion on a finite planet - and they all decimated their ecosystems and advanced the degradation of Nature. 

Western Civilization, a sa whole, produced the 6th mass extinction, the first in 65 million years, and by far the fastest.

None of those periods were golden ages.  none of them were sustainable, none of them were just, and none of them were even happy - not in a truly satisfying way. None of them featured spiritual or psycholoigical wholenes.s  and eveyron eof them was at odds with the very planet that hosted them.

 

And not only is it necessary for solving our civilization's problems, but it's also the path to the political victories to make such changes possible.

You may have noticed that reactionary political parties have been ascendant lately.  Progressive parties and philosophies just can't seem to get much traction.  The philosophies that are winning are all about stopping progress and going backward - at a time when forward-looking attitudes have never been more vital. 

 

Many of us are wondering, how are we going to move things forward, when we're starting from a position of such formidable headwinds?  How are we going to play "offense" when we're still failing at defense?

Well, we've got some great news for you!  The answers to both challenges are the same answer.  We can fix all of it with one simple solution.

For guidance on how to start winning, let's look at the people who are currently doing so:  the Alt-Right. 

How are they managing to win?  How are they so effective at capturing so many hearts and minds, all over the world?

Well, first of all, they have a narrative!  They understand the power of story in shaping people's attitudes and behaviors!  And they've brought a story to the battlefield.  It goes something like this:

 

"Nationalism, capitalism, patriarchy, Judeo-Christian philosophy, and in a general sense, western civilization, all worked, and provided the greatest era in human history.  But then, it all got messed up, by liberals/leftists/atheists/globalists/marxists/feminists/progressives/etc.

You want proof?  Look around you!  The chaos we see around us is because of them - because they led us astray from our heritage system.  Now, we can bring back the good ol' days, by rejecting that "leftist" stuff, and going back to our "traditional" stuff."

 

Notice anything?

They're telling people, in a nutshell, that things used to be good, because we used to have a healthy mythos - but then the mythos changed, and now things are all messed up.

This message resonates with humanity.  It resonates because it's true.

But of course, the Alt-Righties get one major thing wrong:  They mis-identify the historical period in which humanity was healthy.  And this is because they have a totally upside-down view of what health actually is.  (We'll elaborate on this in the upcoming pages!)

 

They got the feeling right, but the dates wrong.

The chaos we see around us is not due to "Leftism", and it's not due to anything that started in just the past few decades.  Rather, it's simply the natural consequence of the tropocidal system of capitalism (and its related ideologies) finally reaching its logical conclusion, as the biosphere collapses and the planet runs out of resources to sustain civilization - and people, seeing their sustenance dwindle, are beginning to quarrel over what remains.

That's what's causing the chaos.  Not the Left, which is trying to evolve us beyond that dangerous, destructive system, to a sustainable system, built around compassion and the recognition of the unity and interconnection of all Life.  That's the Left's job - to evolve society.  The chaos isn't due to too much Leftiness - it's due to not enough.

The historical periods that the Righties are pining for were not golden ages - they were precisely the opposite.  It was during these periods that the foundations of the current chaos were laid, and the current destruction set in motion.  It just took a while for it to manifest to a degree of intensity that couldn't be ignored.  Like a slowly building disease, the malignancy of the Right's favored ideologies was, for a long time, asymptomatic - without symptoms noticeable on a large scale - that is, until recent years, when all the proverbial excretions began hitting the fan, and becoming symptomatic.  And now they're covering it up by blaming it all on the Left.

But nevertheless, their story resonates, because the basic idea - the feeling - that things used to be good - touches something deep and real inside us.  There was a golden age... somewhere in our past.

And the contemporary Left, meanwhile, barely has any story at all, nevermind a powerful one.  In a collective sense, it hasn't been telling any story at all.

 

For most of the past decade (2009 and onward) there has been a general tendency of those on the Left to rely on censorship to win the narrative debate.

 

Instead of countering the Right's narrative with a better and more accurate narrative, most Lefties have instead used a strategy of silencing and marginalizing the Right's narrative, "deplatforming" its speakers, "refusing to legitimize" anyone with bad ideas, and just shutting down debates entirely.  "No debate, no problem" sums up the attitude.

 

Not all Lefties did this.  But it became the general trend.  If you didn't do it, then thank you!

 

But if you did, you're partly responsible for the Alt-Right's unchecked rise.  Instead of showing the Right's audience why racism, sexism, and xenophobia were wrong, you merely tried to stop the ideas from reaching the audience's ears and eyes in the first place.  And you thought that this was a substitute for actual dialogue.  You thought you didn't need to debunk anything, because you could just suppress it all instead - and hence, nothing got debunked, and those bad ideas went unchecked, and spread and gained followers, and won elections.

 

It's not that those regressive ideas are "so powerful" that even the merest exposure to them results in ideological capture.  No.  don't give them such credit!  They're not powerful ideas.  You just didn't show up to fight them.  You forfeited every debate, by not even showing up.  So they won by default!

 

You relied on censorship to do everything for you, and now you have proof that censorship never works. Censorship always produces the opposite effect of its intention.  Always.  

Anyway...

The point is, nothing substitutes for having a narrative.  the Left needs a narrative, to explain the upcoming changes to the social system, and justify their place in our collective story.

To defeat the establishment, we have to take command of the Narrative.  This doesn't just apply to us - the Earth Party - it applies to anyone who wants to unseat the entrenched parties, and break the power of the corporate oligarchy.

Wanna beat Trump?  Gotta reclaim the Narrative.

Want to stem the tide of fascism arising all over the world?  Gotta reclaim the Narrative.

You want to save the world?  Stop climate change?  Stop war?  Stop oppression?  Stop the animal holocaust?  Stop technocracy?  Stop the bankers/globalists/NWO etc.?  Stop Trump?  Stop imperialism?  See humanity graduate into a mature, stable, peaceful civilization?  Then your movement needs to start addressing the population at a deeper level.

Those of us who want a better system, who believe in changing the world, must present that world with a vision of itself.  We must show the skeptics a comprehensive picture of what we want our world to look like.

 

Most of us chant slogans and campaign against what we don't want, but barely mention what we do want.

 

And the smaller fraction of us who do focus on solutions, only promote a few isolated fixes to individual problems - like a few pieces of a jigsaw puzzle - while falling short of any bigger picture. 

The apparent slow-motion collapse of the "liberal democratic world order" we saw begin in 2015 is due to that system's loss of a coherent story.  It no longer addresses us at this level.  It presents us with no overarching vision - no picture of what it wants the future to look like.  Instead, it promises us slight improvements - a little bit more money, a little bit cooler gadgets.  All while continuing to plunder and erase the biosphere, expand inequality to the extreme, and treat living beings like inanimate objects.And people have started to see through that.  We're hungering for something more.  Something substantial.




 

But there WAS a golden age.

It was the Original Society.  And it's very, very ancient. 

If you feel a deeply intutive sense that htings used to be better, you're not wrong.  Your intuition is correct. 

But to find it, we have to go either very far back in teim, or very deep into remote corners of the largest wildernesses.



Our narrative isn't new.  It's the original.

We will tell the world a new story - but it will be the old story.  The story of our beginnings.  The story that has been told around millions of campfires for tens of thousands of years.  Before the comet, before the flood.  From the time when we lived in balance, when we knew who we were - before we became a species with amnesia.  We're going to remember who we are.

Narrative Part 7:

What Happened in 2016?

"What happened in 2016?  It seemed like everything was going one way, and then it all changed suddenly.  Was it because of Donald Trump?  Why did he get elected?  Why did Brexit happen?  Why the sudden right-wing surge everywhere?  Is Putin/Russia behind it?  What's going on?"

Our civilization's current power structure is heavily invested in preventing change.  The people who are currently at the "top" do not want humanity to evolve to a Love-Centered Society*, because they enjoy having control over the rest of us, and they don't want to lose that.

And in 2016, the rebellion began.  


Donald Trump, as an archetype, is an agent of change.  Whether such change will bring us in a good or bad direction is up to the rest of us - the mass consciousness of humanity.  But whether you see Trump as a good figure or a bad figure, one thing can't be denied:  people elected him because they wanted change.  They wanted to "rock the boat" - and he's definitely rocked it.

 

For first time ever, people are saying things in public that they had never said before.  A wider range of ideas are on the table than ever before - both on the Right and the Left. 

 

A lot of those ideas are ugly and anger-filled.  Some of them are more hopeful and unity-minded.   But the point is, the barrier was broken - the barrier of normal status-quo, "business as usual",  polite discourse was broken through.  And a revolution began.  Not with muskets or weapons, but in consciousness.  People have started to become willing to transcend the current system and get to something different.   Change came into the air. 

"Um, this doesn't seem like a revolution to me.  It just looks like a bunch of Alt-Right racists and bigots giving themselves permission to spew their hatred farther and wider.  Nothing's improving.  If anything, the oppressive power structures that were loosened under Obama have now begun to be tightened again.  Wall-Street is more powerful than ever.  Rich people are trampling the poor more than ever, corporations are pillaging more than ever, and we're not evolving at all.  We're DE-volving."

This is because the Establishment pulled a clever trick to keep itself in power.   

 

The revolution, in the beginning, was (or ought to have been) Left-Right balanced.  It should have been everyone - not just one side.

But there was a hitch.  The revolutionary consciousness split into two halves, and the two have been at odds with each other, and thus far unable to overthrow the Establishment.

 

It should have just been the Alt vs. the Establishment, but the Establishment did some tricky things,and sabotaged the revolution on the Left-hand side, while allowing it to proceed on the Right-hand side. 

This drama is playing out all over the world, but the version we saw in the United States was the most quintessential, so we'll explain it from the perspective of the U.S. election.

If you recall in the 2016 primaries, there were 4 main factions: 

The Establishment-Left, represented by Hillary Clinton

The Establishment-Right, represented by Jeb Bush

The Alt-Left, represented by Bernie Sanders

The Alt-Right, represented by Donald Trump.

 

The Alt split off from the Establishment, but if you recall, only one side was named in any public kind of way.  The Alt-Right got a lot of attention and press coverage, but the Alt-Left didn't.  In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find any mention whatsoever of the term "Alt-Left" in any publication anywhere.  Google it.  Nothing comes up.  Ever noticed that?

The Establishment-Left was able to keep a lid on its Alt.  The most likely reason for this is the fact that the Left was coming out of 8 years of perceiving itself to be "in power", and so there was not as much anger and frustration - two things that fertilize revolutionary thought - as there was on the Right.  The Left was satiated, happy, and willing to trust its Establishment to continue the "good times." 

But the Right, reeling from 8 years of perceived helplessness, was ready for upheaval.  The lid blew off.  The Alt candidate won the Republican primary.

In comparison, the Alt-Left candidate failed to win his nomination, and so once the general election came around, it was an Alt candidate - Trump - against an Establishment candidate - Clinton.  And it was never a competition - the Alt was destined to win.

The Alt was what the world wanted - and still wants - and wants more and more, every day.  

"But the Alt-Right is horrible.  They're a bunch of bigots.  They want a revolution alright - but a horrible, fascist revolution."

The reason for this is because the Revolution is only thinking with half of its brain - the Right half.  The Left half is not making it through to consciousness. 

 

When Bernie Sanders lost his party's nomination, the Alt-Left was suppressed for the rest of the election.  The Alt-Right candidate won his nomination.  And so the Alt-Right became the only nominated Alt. 

The Alt-Right was nominated, but the Alt-Left was not.  So the Revolution took a sharp Rightward turn.

 

Had the Alt-Left been able to join in the Revolution, then the Revolution would have taken on Lefty values - like diversity, open-mindedness, environmental consciousness, compassion, and the desire to evolve forward, rather than devolve backward. 

 

For example, if more people of color, more women, and more immigrants had been able to join the Revolution, then the Alt-Righties would have had more exposure to these kinds of people at their meetings and events.  Contact is the greatest weapon against bigotry.  When people start meeting those they fear, and start seeing that they're normal and not all that different from themselves, they start to fear them less. 

 

If more environmentalists had been able to join the Revolution, then they could have explained their reasoning to the Righties, and the Righties could have learned something about ecology, and then become more ecologically conscious.  The list goes on.

But, sadly, the
Right is the only side that's functioning.  The Right is in power.  It controls a major political party - the Republicans.   But the Alt-Left has nothing.  It controls no party (the Democrats are still Establishment).  It's dis-unified.  It has no leader.  The mainstream media doesn't even mention it.  Whenever we hear the term "Alt", we always say "Alt-Right."  The Alt-Left has not taken its appropriate place in consciousness.  Yet.  
 

 



Some people, people who have been brainwashed by the Establishment, they think that the problem is the Alt, and that the solution is to defeat the Alt, and bring back the Establishment.   But that's not correct.  

The solution is to recognize that the
Alt is a good thing, but it's just imbalanced because it's missing half of itself.   We need to add the other half back.

 

If we add back the Left part of the Alt, and it will balance out the Alt-Right, and the Alt will no longer be only on the Right side - it'll be balanced.  And the dangerous aspects of it, like the fascism, will be countered and cleansed from it.  

This means that if you want the Alt-Right to not have a monopoly on power forever (because no side should ever remain in power, unchallenged, indefinitely), then the answer is the Alt-Left.  Not the Establishments - the Establishment can't fix this, because it's a sinking ship, a last remnant of a crumbling control grid that humanity demands liberation from. 

The Establishment is the greater enemy.  It starts the wars, it controls the media and uses it to lie to us.  It's the vehicle of technocracy, it's the arm of the cabal, it's giving aid and comfort to the people designing super-intelligent A.I. to take over the planet and enslave us or fuse our bodies with computers, and it's the entity that has presided over the most destructive, cruel, and insane period in recorded human history.  We must stand together to dethrone it.

The Establishment must be defeated for humanity to be liberated.  To do this, the Alts must make peace with each other, and join forces.  The Alt-Left must team up with the Alt-Right, and join together to form a "Combined Alt" - a unified revolutionary consciousness.

"No way!  The Alt-Right is a bunch of

racists, sexists, and fascists!"

"No way!  The Alt-Left is a bunch of

pinko commies!"

There are issues, of course, and they need healing.  The good news is that the extremes of each side are caused primarily by a lack of communication with the other side.

In other words, the extreme views of some

of the members of the Alt-Right have developed

because of a lack of communication with the Alt-Left...

...and the extreme views of some

of the members pof the Alt-Left have developed

because of a lack of communication with the Alt-Right .

This means that when the two sides start talking to each other, the extremes will soften, and no longer be so extreme.

For this purpose, the Earth Party has begun a peacemaking campaign, complete with its own hashtag:

#PeaceBetweenLeftAndRight
