For President Donald Trump and his allies,
ECONOMICS is the only thing that matters.
In their view,
People who try to retain their cultures
Or preserve the Environment
Are delusionally idealistic
Or unrealistically sentimental.
People have to
"Earn a Living",
And that's the only thing that counts!
Here in Denver,
Starting in the Spring,
There will one cultural festival after another.
Each culture emerges from a specific PLACE,
And specific ECOSYSTEMS in that Place,
Are the guardians of all cultures.
Even if you look at patriarchal cultures
Such as the Arabs or the Persians,
You will find that WOMEN maintain
The Deeper Aspects of these Cultures....
So, one can conclude that the United States
Is a nation of contradictions.
At certain times and places,
If one openly discusses certain controversial,
Certain people will directly tell you
That you need to shut up
As if we're living in a Totalitarian Dictatorship.
If you're standing there on Gay Pride Day,
Wearing nothing else
But a Peace Sign Pendant around your neck,
While smoking a Marijuana Joint,"
You will be considered to be
Supporting the Cultural Life
