Who's Interested In Conscious Politics?

No I really don't think so. California has a ton of problems especially LA. I'm lucky I'm conscious but, I got to start making my community more conscious.

@Emeline This is why when I didn't know the real Libertarianism is, why it disgusted me so much. This is the American bastardized libertarianism at its finest and it's completely grotesque these devils want to roll back the clock to the dark ages.

Things are getting extremely circle-jerky on both sides, for example the trump people aren't even admitting the obvious points and are just disregarding any criticism without arguing back, just thinking they're right because of group mentality, authoritarianism is going completely unquestioned or even endorsed, win-win-lose situations on the rise, nationalism on the rise as we're approaching the 20s... yeah we have learned nothing from the last century

Yeah the argument "blindfolded" is making on whatever platform that is implies that there is some magical vague drawback to taking money that isn't used for anything, and giving it to people who need it, also has a closed minded view thinking that if things are screwed up then the government must be involved, but there are so many examples of this not being the case

UBI isn't perfect but that kind of comment is coming from someone who hasn't listened to the arguments for it

Leo, have you checked out presidential candidate Marianne Williamson? She talks about conscious politics. Could be amazing if she wins.

@Anderz Yeah, but she's also quite naive and politically inexperienced.

@Leo Gura Yes, I was wondering about how much political experience she has. I was thinking of her more as a spiritual teacher and very experienced in that field. I heard she ran for Congress in 2014 supported by Deepak Chopra. I'm very impressed by her talk about transcending the ego collectively.

That's why she should team up with Bernie. Sanders/Williamson 2020. A match made in heaven.

This video here shows her lack of political experience:

Of course it's nice that's she's so open to changing her mind. But it also shows that she hasn't thought all her positions through.

Don't get me wrong, I like her a lot. But success in politics requires more than being a spiritual guru. Spiritual gurus do not necessarily make the best politicians.

Overall I'm thrilled that she's in the debates. She's helping elevate the political discourse which is what we badly need.

"... politics as we usually think of politics does not come from that place. It is a conversation that is very disconnected of the heart. It is a conversation that has become increasingly disconnected from our deep humanity ... from our deepest democratic values ... when we turn away from that which is political, we are turning away from a conversation that, yes has become very toxic, but that doesn't mean that that conversation was without power ... and when you are talking about politics in the United States of America, the most powerful country in the world, you are talking about a conversation that has power." - Marianne Williamson at LA Conscious Life Expo: February 22, 2019

"In 1776 our Founders brought forth on this planet an extraordinary new possibility. It was the idea that people, no matter who they were, would simply have the possibility of thriving. We have not ever totally ACTUALIZED ;) this ideal, but at the times when we have done best we have tried and when forces have opposed them, generations of Americans have risen up and pushed back against those forces. We did that with abolition, and with women's suffrage and with civil rights. And now it is time for a generation of Americans to rise up again, for an amoral economic system has turned short-term profits for huge multinational corporations into a false god. And this new false god takes precedence over the safety and the health and well-being of we the American people and the people of the world and the planet on which we live.

Conventional politics will not solve this problem, because conventional politics is part of the problem. We the American people must rise up and do what we do best and create a new possibility: say no to what we don't want and yes to what we know can be true. I am Marianne Williamson and that's why I am running for President." - Marianne Williamson, Democratic Presidential Debate July 30 2019

She's certainly on point with her big picture. Love that!

@Leo Gura what is your stance on where the biggest trade offs should currently be made in the system of government and what parts should be helped immediately ? 

My opinion is that 

- government spending should be made more transparent (Ranging from 2-7% for now) 

- taxing should be increased on large scale online companies that are soley online 

- more funding should be given to the housing department for the projects 

- the government should invest in renewable energy for blocks around poor areas , to lower their energy bills. (Bit too far fetched realistically) 

- government should regulate Silicon Valley for their investments into tech start up firms 

- government should start up their own research branch into fields of interest. Rather than letting the university lead. 

I can actually think of 1000 different policies. But I’m asking more generally over the trade offs in areas of government than specific policies

Conscious politics indeed. This speech may even make Williamson win in 2020. For love is stronger than fear, just as how darkness vanishes when light enters.

Those are all generally good ideas. It's just a matter of sorting out the details and setting priorities.
