Voters' message to Obama: think big

By David Sirota

What do we do now?" That's the question Bill McKay (Robert Redford), ponders in The Candidate (1972). He won the presidency, promising "a better way." After Nov. 4, America is asking Democrats the same haunting question. These are heady times for the party of Thomas Jefferson, Franklin [RETURN TO ARTICLE]

    Go Big how?

    Intentions materialize realities; my intentions are materializing these words; your intention, o reader my Reader, keeps you passing your eyes over them.

    Whose intentions are now materializing a tsunami of hate?

    NO1 told all these people to do all these hateful things.  NO1 is speaking, and you are hearing.

    Re: the myths with which Fear-Mongers, both Right and Left, are jacking us again; McClellan’s “manipulating the media narrative.”

    Watch McCain’s concession.  At the mere mention of Obama, the crowd starts booing, doing violence even to his name.

    There are some among us, who think they know how to machine us into Being aware of this we share: our shared Becoming.

    “From its late 17th century inception in modern form, science has strongly privileged the reductionist mode of thought that breaks overt complexity into constituent parts and then tries to explain the totality by the properties of these parts and simple interactions fully predictable from the parts. (“Analysis” literally means to dissolve into basic parts). The reductionist method works triumphantly for simple systems
