My Manifesto for Our Future
I wish to lead a revolution (and perhaps with this post, it can be the beginning of one), by proposing a new societal world order: Democratic Humanitarianism. It is not capitalism, it is not communism, it is not socialism, even. It is not any "-ism" that has previously been established before on a universal world stage.
The essence of this paradigm shift is to establish a fundamental political, economic, social, cultural, and spiritual conceptual framework whose epicenter is a moral, ethical conscience that puts the amelioration of collective human suffering at the forefront of our lives, whose absence is inextricably linked to every single malignancy that has ever afflicted our world, whether it is internecine warfare, egregious public/foreign policy, abysmal healthcare, atrocious human welfare dispensation, etc.
Democratic Humanitarianism seeks to awaken and elevate humankind's collective consciousness by reorienting our psychological compass, and declares that the ultimate form of individual and humanity's self-actualization is operationalized both quantitatively and qualitatively by the degree to which we are able to put the suffering of others before ourselves and enrich our own lives by the degree to which we are able to give quality life away to others.
Finally, Democratic Humanitarianism aims to sequester and suppress nefarious propensities that humans are capable of (e.g. financial avarice, selfishness, corruption, mendacity, etc.) that are often only evinced and manifested simply because we have provided an unscrupulous, iniquitous societal environment that is conducive to the festering of those ignoble human qualities.
Instead, Democratic Humanitarianism hinges upon the elicitation from each individual and from humankind virtuous, noble elements that equally come naturally to all of us as part of the human condition if we provide the societal conscience and principled infrastructure to allow them to--a desire to love, a desire to have purpose, a desire to be part of something greater than ourselves, a desire to care for someone other than ourselves, a desire to understand the plight of others, a desire to lift others up, a desire to build identity and forge positive meaning in our lifetimes, a desire to be fulfilled in what we do, a desire to create and put forth something into this world that manifests as the good we wish others to remember us by.
Like a tiny butterfly, flapping its inaudible wings, I hope that eventually my tiny voice and this message will carry the sound of sirens, thundering across every horizon in the world, traversing the boundaries of our time, and enter into every community, village, and home to completely and irreversibly transform what many may see as a chimerical pipe dream, but to me, the gateway, the only way, for us to move forward into a better, more glorious future with the incredible people we have been blessed to share this world with.
Join me in leading this revolution. And together, we will change the world.
MAGIC AS MEDICINE
Making the Impossible Possible
"One of the things I have always loved about magic is its ability to connect with literally anyone, give them hope and happiness, and alter their perception of an imperfect reality. Magic not only heals but also inspires, and teaches anyone and everyone that no matter who you are, things that seem impossible, are in fact, possible." - Jay Wong
