NOTICE HIS BODY LANGUAGE

By folding one or both arms across the chest,
a barrier is formed that is an unconscious attempt
to block out what we perceive
as a threat or undesirable circumstances.
The arms fold neatly across the heart and lungs regions
to protect these vital organs from being injured,
so it’s likely that arm-crossing is inborn.

Men do this when they feel insecure around another male.
In their famous 1960 presidential debate,
Richard Nixon crossed his arms
when talking to John F. Kennedy off the air,
because, as his biographer noted, Nixon
always felt insecure around “Ivy league types,”
even though he was Vice President
at the time and had international stature.

Donald Trump’s Nuclear-War Threat

http://www.newyorker.com/news/john-cassidy/donald-trumps-nuclear-war-threat
“…Whether Trump’s statement was planned or not,
As a number of observers quickly pointed out,
it echoed the warning that President Harry Truman issued
to the imperial Japanese government on August 6, 1945,
shortly after the Enola Gay,
a U.S. Air Force B-29 Superfortress bomber,
had dropped a nuclear bomb on Hiroshima,
killing about seventy thousand people.
“If they do not now accept our terms,
they may expect a rain of ruin from the air,
the like of which has never been seen on this Earth,”
Truman said, in a radio address from the White House.
Three days later,
the United States dropped another nuclear bomb,
this time on Nagasaki,
killing another thirty-five thousand people…”

Any dominant culture in a society
has shaped optics
that sees the world
exclusively
according to
THEIR values + THEIR needs
-which are then translated into external structures:
systems, institutions, consciousness,
semiotics and laws
that upholds a specific
crystallized
worldview.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And, then there is the “other”,
the outside, the foreign, the feared,
that does not resonate
with the dominant culture’s optics.
The “other” is deemed invisible; less than, aberrant; threatening, etc.
A dynamic is established to keep the “other” blind, begging and blamed.
The “other” can be in multiples in a society,
yet,
their presence is cancelled.
WHITEWASHED.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The shaped optics are rigid
 and
are held with a tight, death grip
-blindly, gripping
because of the terror of dissolution
of  the withstanding power matrix
-the  signifier identity of a dominant culture.
No dialogue.
No empathy.
No courage.
No invitation to the table,
 welcoming and praising
of how God’s gifts
are shaped in  a wide +  deep spectrum
of diverse blooms.
 A dominant culture sees their optics and practices as right,
and
cannot empathize with the “other”.
There is no incentive/motivation/purpose
to understand,
participate
and
acknowledge
the reality of the “other”.
 
Losing control is a visceral FEAR of a dominant culture
 and
judgement of  the “other”
is a practice of differentiating the “other”
that  protects the  exclusivity/privilege
upheld by the the dominant culture.
 
 
 
 

The dominant culture defines normal.


 
 
 
 
The dominant culture does not have to be the majority of a population.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The shaped optics are a contortion/distortion
that becomes imprinted
in the heart and spine of the individual
and
the society as whole.
The practice of  the other “wishing” they had the bluest eye;
did not limp; did not live in a chair;
did not wear the color of skin they were born in
sows the cruel seeds of inhumanity.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The dominant culture steals freedom  of one’s birthright:
breath.
Yahweh.
Inhale.
Exhale.
8.
And, then there is an exquisite r/evolution
where  the humanity of humanity
seizes
and
the breath of life expands.
Calling out the truth.
Calling out the truth.
Calling out the truth.
I SEE YOU.
