“Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.”
OUT BETWEEN THE LILAC TREE & SUMMER FRUITS
‘So, the America I loved still exists,… IF not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media.’
‘The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr
CHILDREN OF THE EVOLUTION
It could be said that children born in the 1960’s early 1970’s in the 20th century, are two generations born to move forward to evolve the belief of ‘yes we can yes we are and yes we will.’, as actual things that resonate with a generation about to get the vote, in both Australia and America.
BARACK AND JULIA CHANGING PARADIGMS IN THE WOMEN’S CENTURY
‘Moving forward’ and embracing feminism have been guarantees, and hallmarks that Julia Gillard and Barack Obama have both given voice too, that gives us hope of a more inclusive world.
It could be said Barack Obama and Julia Gillard both have played significant roles on the word stage as President of America and the first Woman PM of Australia in the Women’s Century. Both these world leaders I mentioned have come and given to our planet from worlds apart, she from Wales then to the “land of plenty’ Australia growing up in the state of South Australia. Barack from Hawaii of the West Coast of America. Both from very different upbringings, but both with a will and passion to grow evolve and challenging their own and other paradigms of how things SHOULD BE in the world.
THE COURAGE OF WOMAN BEHIND ENEMY LINES SPEAKING HER TRUTH
Julia’s courage in rejecting so bravely the vulgar misogyny of the Oppostion Leader at the time, Her speech was a triumph. A world first outing a very out of date man, Julia, naming the hypocrisy of this very poor behaviour from a man clearly,OBLIVIOUS of his own ignorance and distasteful rhetoric. A man claerly not living in the women’s century, clearly with NO genuine ability to embrace half the population as equals Julia’s Speech
It could be argued quite justly, that Julia’s extraordinary speech,is one of the most profound speeches this far of the 21st century. Her courage and strength is testinomy to her belief in herself and what she stands for and what she will not TOLERATE.. A highlight in a really crazy time as we bare witness to the dying days of patriarchy
CHALLENGED DEMOCRACY AND OPPRESSIVE OUTDATED BELIEFS
However, it would also be fair to say, some of the decisions they both made have no doubt been challenging and not necessarily of their exclusive choice as PM and President. That is a whole other can of worms that speaks to the issue of working behind enemy lines, i.e. patriarchal institutions.More on that in part 2 of this series on ‘Vita”
Barack and Julia, have definitely shaken the core of old outdated paradigm’ s and the richest organizations in the world Both these 60’s born generation are examples of this generations desire to step up and create a better world. The establishment of this inquiry was some of Julia’s early work as PM
LIVING BEHIND ENEMY LINES AND LAST CENTURY PARADIGMS
Certainly, working in western governments that have very patriarchal and challenging belief systems that are very last century, they managed to cut through at many levels in their time in Office. A brave act was this that still rages on in America as a very controversial move! Hmm who would’ve thought universal health care was such a bad thing?
Australian Medicare has been a very successful legacy for Gough Whitlam’s since 1972 as much as the current government have chipped away at its fundamental integrity.
TRADITIONAL ENGAGEMENT VS MILLINUEM EMPOWERMENT
Conventional engagement by political parties does not resonate nor is it validated by the children of the technology evolution, that however will be Bernie’s legacy because he does resonate with them!!
More on that in Part 3
What is more exciting is the acceleration of this belief from the generations born in the technology evolution
We bless the Resistance in the 60’s we bless the belief in love not war we bless the choices and genetic memory of struggle and love that has been shown so we can all move forward, into an inclusive world with integrity love and collaborative engagement that has genuine meaning.
