Scriabin and Cooperative Anarchy

November 14th, 2016

Scriabin is my favorite composer.  Check him out.  I was listening to Scriabin when I “got” mutual-vector Calculus applications in high-energy physics and could “see” it happening.  I left Flatland.  🙂

I’ve not been around much for a while now.  There were heart issues to heal from Doug leaving, and from other things that happened around that time.  I hope I now return with greater wisdom, and with more compassion for our Earth and all Her living things, but especially for Humankind, my species. *<twinkle>*

I’m listening to Scriabin’s Preludes Op. 11, performed by Evelyne DuBourg, although I think my favorite artist for these Preludes is Ruth Loredo.  Horowitz does a nice job, too.

I think, amidst the disorder and collapsing of old structures that we see all around us, we are also being offered a wonderful opportunity to step forth and dare the creation of new structures based not on greed, addictions to power, insatiable materialistic lust, anger, and at the bottom of it all, of course, the fear.

I am suggesting that we are building new structures—new social structures, new solutions for old problems, through free markets and free minds.   Time to leave Flatland.  If old structures were built on initiation of force, caging people, enslaving people, greed, power addiction, and fear, then what shall form the foundation of this new structure of society?

I’d suggest we use as our foundation honor, courage, and love.  Let our fundamental human characteristics be balanced: compassion with objectivity;  justice balanced with mercy; trust balanced with self-defense; right of association balanced with cooperation; free markets balanced with free minds.  I think we have an opportunity to create intentional structures without hierarchy.  I am suggesting that there are alternatives to hierarchal government.  I am suggesting know that there are other ways to conduct the affairs of Humankind, in directions that lead us away from ignorance and darkness.

“No institution predicated on the use of force or fraud can prevail,” wrote Doug Buchanan.  He also wrote, “The net effect of government: diminish human potential; lessen quality of life; stagnate advance of knowledge; serve only the pleasures and egos of the hierarchy.”  Doug left a lot of notes for me, and I am only slowly sorting and publishing them, saying as close to the original words as possible.  Much of these times, we were also talking as he wrote.

And now I, solo me, am going to be writing more about Cooperative Anarchy, and hope you will join me here occasionally, enter into the discussion with your comments, and join the rising chorus of Humankind all over the world as we gather in peaceful consultation.  Let us dare toward peace. *<twinkles>*

I’m now back  to listening to Scriabin.

Toward entelechy,
