Gary Vaynerchuck talking about how many guys would be more happier as stay at home dads and many women would be happier as the financial strength but societies norms are keeping people from their authentic traits. Do you think, this is an example of post modern, stage green thinking, that  often times people's identities do not fit the categories that society displays for us?

Thank you

"John DID NOT DIE from eating a cheeseburger. He dosed correctly and his friends were in the room to help him."

Lol

Putting LSD next to heroin and the word "die" is absurd. The only thing that will die is your big fat ego.

@Leo Gura, I guess that's why they wrote: "she'd had the substance tested". You could only harm yourself if it was NBOMe or some other phenethylamine.

@Girzo More people die from lettuce than psychedelics. When was the last time you had your lettuce tested?

But I get your point.

@Leo Gura Yeah I don't like that they put LSD and heroin in the same advertisement but atleast it's still a more evolved drug overdose prevention campaign than we find anywhere else in the world

Contrapoints talks about her experience of getting cancelled. 

I find it a brilliant case to illustrate how the Green hive can operate as a hyper toxic and dangerous collective ego, attacking even its best assets.

The stage Green mob mentality is dissected by her, showing us with as much clarity as it can get why this behavior has to stop or at least, not being done lightly.

@Etherial Cat The emerging Stage Green society is still dealing with its Blue and Orange shadows. Backlashes like this are to be expected as even well-meaning people struggle with their own underdevelopment. A lot of the new Green energy probably had Orange or even Blue parents, which will obviously have left an imprint.

We’ll get there though.

Mmmh yeah, potentially.

In the case of Contrapoints, I do believe that the angry crowd she had to deal with was showing some typical Green blindspots and limitation. 

To be fair, I'm not very well versed on SD shadows, but I've heard it's a thing. For instance, I've heard Leo say numerous time that Trump has a Green shadow. I'm just not seeing it.

@Etherial Cat Prior to running for President, Trump was a Democrat. He supported gun legislation, has a strong anti-war bent to him and has said things off the cuff like "I love everybody", a very stage Green sentiment to have (and my gut tells me a least part of him truly believes that.) He seems pretty liberal when it comes to things like sexual identity and lifestyle choices, and in my estimation he doesn't have the psychology of a conservative.

The problem is that all of this is vastly overshadowed by his unhealthy Red and Orange, as well as some elements of Blue. The power dynamics of the toxic stage Red/Blue/Orange environments he puts himself in means that this Green shadow will never manifest in this lifetime. Had something different happened in his life - had he stumbled upon a hippie commune as a young man, or not been treated so poorly by his father, or something else to that degree - it's possible he may have developed this shadow more and ended up as just a usual, liberal NY socialite, instead of a toxic chauvinist president. Don't get me wrong, he still would've been deeply embedded in Red and Orange, as he is today, and controversy still would've followed him, but those aspects of him would've been tempered by a slighter deeper understanding of Green that could've made him less power-thirsty and narcissistic.

Nice. Thanks for that reply, I find it very useful.

A fantastic example of two people elaborating on the Green mindset vs the Orange mindset, especially towards the end of the video.

Below is a recent political video. It is one of my favorite political ads. It is tripping with healthy substantive Green. The video was not produced by the Sanders campaign. The video was created by people that have been moved and inspired by Bernie. It has a high level of creativity, human connection, egalitarianism, multi-cultural, empathy and love. For me, the video is very moving. I really hope Bernie wins and this essence permeates through the consciousness of humanity.

Serj Tankian is a powerful example of a stage Green musician. Former lead vocalist of System of a Down.

My favorite stage green quotes from the interview below:

 

Rainn: "Why do we hate?"

Serj: "Because we don't feel the interconnectivity of all things, otherwise it would just be us we are hating."

Rainn: "Do we need religion?"

Serj: "Organized, no. Disorganized, yes."

That even taps into a Turquoise way of thinking.
