The Evolution of the World Egalitarian Consciousness through Gay Rights

From AJC columnist Jay Bookman’s blog, April 2, 2015: http://jaybookman.blog.ajc.com/2015/04/02/events-in-indiana-georgia-prove-the-world-has-changed/

My ideas were, also, presented on AJC columnist Jim Galloway’s blog, April 2, 2015, at the following link:

AJC  columnist Jay Bookman: “They sought this fight (religious bill which would have adversely effected gay rights) as a demonstration of their political strength, and in conservative Georgia in a conservative General Assembly, it so far appears as if they lost that fight. That says a lot.”

Mary Elizabeth: “What it says to me is that the collective consciousness, of realized equality for all human beings, is expanding across America.  It also says to me that the corporate monetary withdrawal from states that are not in tune with the times in consciousness, like WalMart (ironically) and Coca-Cola, has had its impact in turning the Indiana and Georgia legislation around regarding gay rights.

Now, if this nation would continue in its evolving consciousness toward greater self-government and equality for all, it might still become the beacon for the world in enlightenment, as our Founding Fathers and A. Lincoln had desired.”

Mary Elizabeth’s responses to two separate posters are combined, below:  
“This corporate swaying of the legislators in Indiana and Georgia is telling us, as a nation, that the will of the people (greater consciousness toward equality for gay rights) CAN sway even the decisions of high-powered corporations and their CEOs.  These profit-based corporations do not want to go against the majority will of the people because they do not want the people to turn against them and, more on target, they are shrewd and perhaps even wise enough to know that the will of the people will determine the economic growth, eventually.This is what I think is the larger outcome of this issue.  I had thought that corporations might, eventually, control the people’s voices, but now I see that, in fact, the people’s voices (or their collective will) will control many societal decisions made by corporations because, although the purposes of corporations are profit and money, the will of the people for justice and equality is greater than their desire for money and profit, in America.  Jefferson lives!The will of the people, through their evolving egalitarian consciousness, will prevail  over the personal will for profit by elite, controlling billionaires. This is the playing out of the old Jefferson vs. Hamilton battle, in terms of what is best for America, in the long-run.  Jefferson wins every time because his egalitarian ideas are the heart of America. Hamilton’s free market contributions were very much needed economically for our nation’s success, but Jefferson, with his egalitarian vision, rules supreme.  This is not simply a victory for Jefferson. It is a victory for our world’s soul.”

Figmo, you are misunderstanding from my way of thinking.  This corporate swaying of the legislators in Indiana and Georgia is telling us, as a nation, that the will of the people (greater consciousness toward equality for gay rights) CAN sway even the decisions of high-powered corporations and their CEOs.  These profit-based corporations do not want to go against the MAJORITY will of the people because they do not want the people to turn against them and, more on target perhaps, they are shrewd and perhaps even wise enough to know that the will of the people will determine the economic growth eventually.

This is what I think is the larger outcome of this issue.  I had thought that corporations might control the people’s voice, but now I see that it is the opposite because corporations want profit and money, and the will of the people is stronger for justice and equality than money and profit in America.  Jefferson lives!

LeninTime :

Although I don’t agree with your conclusion, this is very well put:

“These profit-based corporations do not want to go against the majority will of the people because they do not want the people to turn against them and they are shrewd and perhaps even wise enough to know that the will of the people will determine the economic growth eventually.”

If Walmart and Target both told the people to stick it, where would they shop? If the majority of people were convinced that God was sending a great flood, they would stock life rafts to the ceiling. the will of the people appeased and the buck goes in the till, everyone’s happy…(?)

We are talking about the will of the people through evolving consciousness over time to a world controlled by this greater egalitarian consciousness, not controlled by the personal profit of billionaires.  Jefferson vs. Hamilton in what is best for America in the long-term.  Jefferson wins every time because his ideas are the heart of America.  Hamilton’s free market contributions were very much needed economically for our nation’s success, but Jefferson, with his egalitarian soul, rules supreme.  This is not simply a victory for Jefferson; it is a victory for our world’s soul.
