"Historically, society evolves in cycles from one
governed by imagination,

participatory society would be one that has the same basic institutions at its
core, of course with variation from case to
case, as any other participatory society and those would be the core
institutions of polity, kinship, community/culture, economy, and connections to
ecology and other nations." - Michael Albert

internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish
to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the

int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate
religi☯us practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their

no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and
