Response to Agnosticsherbet (Original post)

14. Well, I don't agree with her that Hillary Clinton is a "transition" figure to a...

...feminine world view (based on the Mayan calendar), unless that feminine world that is allegedly dawning is one in which women laugh when an "enemy" is raped with a bayonet and murdered (that's how Gadaffi, who had been providing a subsidy income to every Libyan from the oil revenues), died, in what is called "Hillary's War" in Washington DC. (Hillary declares, "We came, we saw, he died!" and then laughs--it's on vid.)

And I don't consider the murder of Berta Caceres, an indigenous woman in Honduras, winner of the "Goldman Environmental Prize," and the murders of hundreds of women like her--leaders of environmental and pro-democracy movements in Honduras--by the fascist pigs whom Clinton put in power, to be reflective of anything I would call feminism or a feminine world view, or even a "transition" to feminism. Then there are the murders of LGBT people by the fascists in Honduras--thousands! And the women of Libya, now exposed to the brutal IS jihadists, as well as to the random rape and brutality of a society ripped apart by Western violence--like Iraq, like Syria--toward all of which Clinton apes the belligerent, callous, world dominationist, Neo-Con view of the "Big Boys Club" like her advisors, Robert Kagan (architect of "The Project for a New American Century"--Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld's blueprint for military occupation of the Middle East and its oil) and her good friend and advisor Henry Fucking Kissinger.

So I think this psychic is full of shit on this matter--the "transition" to a feminine world view--and I don't necessarily scoff at psychic powers. Hillary Clinton is a "transition" figure for the Forever War that will now continue with a "liberal" facade. That is the "transition" that is taking place, not anything Mayan, but something that is uniquely North American: A few women and LGBT people will be permitted into the inner sanctum of war and power, but most will not be, along with most men and most racial and religious minorities who comprise the poor 99%. As for the women and LGBT people in Honduras, forget them. They don't count even a little bit in the corridors of power. And the women of the U.S.-destroyed countries, count even less, if that is possible.

So here's my psychic feeling about it all. We are most certainly entering the era of Mother Earth, or re-entering it, if feminist historians, anthropologists and archeologists are right--and I do think they are--that human beings worshiped a Goddess long before they worshiped a God. Male energy has certainly dominated the modern era for good--sometimes great good--and for ill--sometimes great ill, with the final great ill being the destruction of Mother Earth. It is out of necessity, then, that we must PUSH ourselves out of this male energy era, not into worshiping a Goddess or Mother Earth again, but into recognition of Mother Earth's vulnerability to US, with all our widgets and gadgets and oil wells and clever-as-hell toxins. We must stop plundering the earth for oil, and plundering other human beings and landscapes to get their oil. We must stop cutting down trees and start planting them. We must put a stiff tax on everything that destroys Mother Earth, and drive those things out of production, while creating a new sustainable and prosperous world.

That's a tall order. And there is only one candidate for president who understands it and is trying to help us move into this new era of Mother Earth. And that is Bernie Sanders, who is completely unbeholden to the money interests who are destroying the earth, who feels kinship with the organic farmers in his senate constituency, in Vermont, and who states that strong action on climate change is our MORAL duty AND that government MUST help the poor in the transition to a sustainable and prosperous world.

I liked one statement of this psychic, that, "You're human--you are fueled by light!" She was saying that we, as human beings, are not Trump supporters, or Clinton supporters, or Sanders supporters--that these are temporary divisions in the artificial political world, and that, at bottom, we all have the capacity to be something more awesome: human--and humans and all living things are fueled by light. Very true. But the psychic veers off from that insight in her screwy interpretation of war hawk Hillary as the "transition" to the feminine, and her interpretation of Trump as representative of the old, male-dominated world--he is not even close. The old, male-dominated world was very creative, and ultimately very open-minded and liberal, or parts of it were. Thus we have refrigerators and the Enlightenment, computers and the Declaration of Independence, washing machines and the United Nations, Van Gogh paintings and the New Deal. Trump has not created a damn thing that is useful to the human race, and is a phony candidate for president CREATED BY the Corrupt Media.

This psychic's appeal to us to give up our fight for a better world and our fear of a bad one is ridiculous. This kind of head-in-the-sand New Age crapola is not useful to anybody.

She said one other thing that I agree with. We must not look to saviors. Sanders has said this time and time and time again. We, all of us, must be our own saviors. No leader can do what needs to be done, to save our democracy and our planet, all alone. No kings or queens. No imperial presidents. WE are the saviors we have been looking for.

On the whole, this vid is just "feel good" blather, with one or two interesting insights amidst a lot of mush. We could use a REAL Cassandra right now, who tells us just what is going to happen, to both Trojans and Greeks, when the Greeks' phony horse is welcomed into Troy.
