I invite you to check out my weekly email newsletter, featuring horoscopes and many other features.

Last week, I offered commentary on the cultural emergency into which America has been plunged by the Supreme Court's tragic decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. This information is still fresh and crucial.

Greetings. I am Master of the Obvious. I will start these proceedings by naming which institutions in our culture do bad and self-serving things: every one of them.

The institutions that do bad and self-serving things are corporations, religions, governments, the media, big science, medicine, the pharmaceuticals, academia, publishing, the film and art and music industries, the big tech companies, professional sports, and every other system I neglected to name.

Here's what we masters of the obvious do: Toward all the bad and self-serving institutions, we develop a discerning skepticism, based on accurate evidence. We criticize them. We do what we can to reform them. And we acknowledge that many of them also do some good and helpful things that we're grateful for.

So we go forward, holding in our minds a poised understanding of their contradictions, as intelligent fools do. We cultivate an awareness that everything on earth is flawed and imperfect, and that many imperfect and flawed things (not all) also have value and beneficence.

We meditate on the psychological concept of co-emergence, which postulates that every beautiful, useful thing is intertwined with some challenging problem; that every challenging problem has some inspiration and education to offer us.

We meditate on what my daughter said when she was five years old, "There's nothing in the world that is either all good or all bad."

Important PS: At this juncture, the Supreme Court is one of those pathologically ignorant and irredeemably flawed institutions that is utterly corrupt and unworthy of any respect—a rogue band of six authoritarian theocratic thugs perpetrating ruin and havoc on a mass scale. They are an exception to the rule I articulate here.

During the emergency chaos we are now embedded in because of the Theocratic takeover, I highly recommend you regularly read two brilliant thought leaders:

Rebecca Solnit


Heather Cox Richardson


Rebecca Solnit writes:

The vile majority in the court likes:

--school prayer
--dirty fossil fuel
--guns, guns, guns, and guns
--the death penalty


--women's bodily self-determination
--addressing the climate crisis
--Native American jurisdiction on Native American land
--refugees and migrants
--prisoners' rights


The Supreme Court’s six tyrannical theocrats are a threat to the planet

We are in a cultural emergency—as well as a life-and-death emergency for many people. Here's my compilation of abortion resources from last week.

Some readers have been surprised by the fact that I'm heartbroken and outraged about the Supreme Court's theft of a basic human right and its further desecration of the environment. "It's not pronoiac to be so sad and angry," one person said.

To correct that misunderstanding, here's a relevant passage from my book Pronoia Is the Antidote to Paranoia: How the Whole World Is Conspiring to Shower You with Blessings:

Pronoia is fueled by a drive to cultivate happiness and a determination to practice an aggressive form of gratitude that systematically identifies the things that are working well. But it is not a soothing diversion meant for timid Pollyannas strung out on optimistic delusions.

It's not a feel-good New Age fantasy used to deny the harsh facts about existence. Those of us who perceive the world pronoiacally refuse to be polite shills for sentimental hopefulness.

On the contrary, we build our optimism not through a repression of difficulty, but rather a vigorous engagement with it. We understand that the best way to attract blessings is to grapple with the knottiest enigmas.

Each fresh puzzle is a potential source of future bliss -- an exciting teaching that may usher us to our next breakthrough.

Do you want to be a pronoiac player? Blend anarchistic rebelliousness with open-hearted exuberance. Root your insurrectionary fervor in expansive joy instead of withering hatred.

Enjoy saying "no!" but don't make it the wellspring of your vitality. Be fueled by blood-red yeses that rip against the grain of comfortable ugliness.


Listen to my spoken-word song, "Shadow Blessings"

Here’s a fun hypothesis: Absolutely everyone in the world has the power to heal someone else.

At one end of the spectrum are the doctors and shamans and therapists who can summon the means to cure lots of people.

At the other end are individuals with the power to improve the health or smooth out the distortions in just one other person.

Wherever you fit in this range, you can decide right now that your healing mojo is now at a peak. I invite you to invoke it in all of its intensity and point it in the direction of whomever can benefit.

At this moment of grave crises, we need you.

YES, There Are Important Differences between the Two Main Political Parties


YES, Voting Is a Matter of Life and Death for a Lot of People.

Didn't vote in 2000, or decided that Earth-in-the-Balance Al Gore wasn't green enough?

George Bush picked two Supreme Court justices.

Didn't vote in the 2010 or 2014 midterms?

That helped throw the Senate to the Republicans so they could steal Scalia's seat.

Didn't vote in 2016, or just didn't like corporate Hillary and her emails?

Trump picked three terrble people to be Supreme Court justices.

Now the Supreme Court is putting a Christian Fascist Theocracy in place and does what the coal industry wants.

We had many, many chances to stop this.

The evidence is overwhelming: Voting is actually a matter of life and death.

As we reel from the tragic actions of the fake Christians who have control of the Supreme Court, I'd like to remember and celebrate the justice-loving Christians who've embodied Jesus Christ's actual teachings as they've worked in behalf of progressive ideals:

including Harriet Tubman
César Chávez
Martin Luther King Jr.
the Berrigan Brothers
Archbishop Oscar Romero
Dorothy Day
Ralph Abernathy
Sojourner Truth
Fred Shuttlesworth
Desmond Tutu
Kim Bobo
Frederick Douglass
Thomas Merton
Sister Joan Chittister
Anna Howard Shaw
Frances Willard
Helen Keller
and John Lewis . . .

. . . all of whom are REAL Christians who cared about poor and marginalized people, unlike evangelicals and fundamentalists, who are the antithesis of everything Christ taught


Jesus's ministry brought women greater liberation than they would have typically held in mainstream society.

Jesus taught that, in the imminent kingdom of God, there would be a reversal of roles and those who had been oppressed would be exalted.

According to Bart Ehrman, this idea would have been particularly appealing and empowering to women of the time, such as Mary Magdalene, who may have felt oppressed by traditional attitudes to gender roles.
