Jesus favors proactive help, justice, fairness and tolerance.

1051. Jesus favors proactive help, justice, fairness and tolerance.

1051b. Jesus favored community organization. By his own example.

1051c. Jesus believed we could do what he did.

1051d. Jesus did not respect property over human rights.

1051e. Jesus was about turning this world around, not making us other-worldly.

1051f. Jesus was executed for doing things priests claimed were divine functions.

1051g. The church turned Jesus into a messiah and thus avoided the responsibility he tried to engender in all.

This is another excerpt from the continually growing book Triadic Philosophy.

The Jesus I infer wanted to go viral, but because of Abba’s way, not special effects or miracles. He came to show a way we could achieve,  a world based on the willed values of non-idolatry, tolerance, helpfulness and democracy.

Ego is a nominalist misnomer

The above is a sampling from the work in progress Triadic Philosophy, a Kindle book. I have set the price at $9.99 and it will not change although the book will grow substantially.  As it does, Kindle users will be able to download the latest version (by managing their Kindle). This is an alternative mode of expressing thought and it could only occur in the context of cyber-space. This is a book that is literally being played out on Twitter. While it is meant to strike at the heart of dualistic philosophy, it is also meant to be a clear and useful iteration of thinking that is universal in relevance. Triadic Philosophy will not be able, as it grows, to be relegated to any group or category or school of thought whatsoever. We are beyond that. You can sample more of  Triadic Philosophy and purchase or borrow the book (if a Kindle Prime member) by clicking the image below.

Nothing is LESS free market than our military-industrial, oil-car-corporate, bank-on-dole economy

Nothing is LESS free market than our military-industrial, oil-car-corporate, bank-on-dole economy the GOP sucks up to.

I tweeted this following a long – for Twitter – discussion that typically pitted reason on the left against smoke from the right. It is time to start framing our rhetoric accurately. None of the freedom conservatives say they want is in today’s economy. Conservatives are defending the most government-centric society you can imagine. They simply want to cherry-pick who gets the gravy. If it’s military-industrial, oil-car corporate and bank-friendly, it gets a pass. That is where GOP pay comes from. If it is the result of this huge welfare capitalism, a mass of Americans reeling and on the hook to these very same forces, well, the devil take the hindmost. The last laugh will be administered by an impatient Deity who is stretching at the moment in preparation for another summer and fall of gorgeous weather that the media will describe as once in a century. We would not want to get Chevron’s nose out of joint now, would we? Oppose!

Combating Idolatry

The root value of all values is to have no others that you serve than Abba – the universal name for the One who is in everyone. Here are some notes on idolatry and how to combat it.

Abba’s Way Four Steps – Four

Abba’s Way Four Steps – Four. The final step is embracing the four universal values of Abba’s way: non-idolatry, helpfulness, tolerance and democracy. These are dynamic values distinct from virtues and characteristics. They are essential to survival.

Non-idolatry and the Unprecedented

Non-idolatry expresses as a value – ontological, core – the command that one have no other gods before the one Jesus called Abba. Practically this achieves the goal of pragmaticism which is to establish our universal fallibility.
