Fellow Troubled Americans, Especially Those Of You Who Won't Quit: Fired Up By Revelations*, I Am Running For Public Office.
Stop Complaining,
the way UKers did;
and Start Running.
Because folks, why should we neo-moderates across the religion spectrum stop with us just establishing our own family churches+;
when we can just as easily be active in "NO representation without representation", simply by being our own candidates!* ** ***
.Whose Crisis?
When fictional reverses re-
prise millennial rehearsals:
"Every home a sacred 'castle'.
Each family a congregation."
Soon in the real world too?
Not likely. But maybe later!
Found all over the Internet as well as in my start a church-in-reverse tall story, alarmists see
these supposed words of a hugely connected former government biggie as being unpatriotic
in the extreme...  "The nation state as a fundamental unit of man's organized life has ceased to
be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting
and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state."
.Who knows if that quote is really true? Yet today, family-wise, why should that even matter?
I.e., whether or not true, are there enough overreaches of all sorts occurring today putting
too many of our family ecologies at risk, per this 1980 warning by a much praised educator?

"Paul Ramsey, professor of religion of Princeton University
and one of the nation's leading scholars in the field of ethics,
similarly argues that marriage and the family have been subjected
to the "relentless forces of an insistent atomistic individualism."
.Few at the time of THE STATE IS NO SUBSTITUTE (that Christian
Science Monitor call-to-arms) thought Prof. Ramsey's words worth a
damn. Do you share his concerns? Are things even worse these days?
Maybe yes, maybe no. Either way, we hope that what follows will
be seen in a omnism1 way. I.e., seen with omnistic eyes -- and heard
with omnistic ears, by many of you who share all kinds of often very
different political views. Many of you may much disagree that there is
truth to be found on all sides of even the most heated debates, rather
than one side being all right about everything. However, with millions
of us now sharing the belief that "enough is enough", maybe the dark
days of divide and distract (in order to conquer) are coming to an end?
It does seem to be dawning on lots of us believers too long in the dark
that we have been handicapping ourselves by not practicing omnism.
Some examples of omnistic responses engendered by our famcol site:

"Is any God's Honest truth to be found in the 1847 book,
Thoughts On Family Worship, by James W. Alexander?
I suppose it depends on what someone means by 'God'?"

This truth is from a once bitter seventy year-old man,
sadly estranged from his once loving family for more

than 30 years: "I used to think that happy people were

just blowing bubbles in the sceptic tank of sentiment!"

This much sweeter truth is from a new mother, "Para-
phrasing the Bible: 'For what profits a mom, dad or child
if they ignore what can be most harmful to their family?'
Rest of site TMI for me. However at least you mean well."

And this one from someone who got here by first reading
what he calls our Coming/Going "familyvangelical"1a page:
"I found your words more disturbing than uplifting. And yet."

Urban Omnist offered a video of one of his omnist "truths":
a God Spectrum to him and to us a "family" of religions. And
you? It likely depends on your own personal view of religion.



Welcome to Familycology.org.

Official "Fam C.O.R.D." site for

soliciting omnist2 "family ecology"

methods of -- practical -- spirituality:

self-blessed family assemblies religious-

ly living the joys of caring and sharing +.

Please note that our proposal for family-based AND run

families as assemblies is completely different than

government monitored and dictated "well-being"!


Seen in families, and also outside of them;

kind acts of openness, not closed certitude.

Omnism's as useful in politics as religion:

what more loving way to address even this?

Omnism is in all heaven-on-earth religions,

and also in omnist families that have none ^!





Your help is requested per a book "we" are writing. It is

entitled, How To Start An Omnism Church-in-Reverse?

It proposes a way of re-looking at religiosity that strips

away "progress" so that we might enter a new "Eden".


Our book is for folks whose families are sacred to them:

Our Mobius Strip-like familycology turns the practice of

"church" inside-out, with ecology & posterity possibilities

to inspire us. Miracles do happen when progressive and

libertarian families, returning to values of "wholeness",

"oneness" & "unity" moderately say "NO!" to yielding to

Mammon. Explore how doing good begets what's yours

through creative practices of family-as-church activism.

God Knows what lies beyond undervalued overlooked truths?

Please note: FamCol is not a tax-dodge3 3a nor a conspiracy4.



For example:

To help restore many at risk family ecologies, we are

looking for family-friendly ideas resonant with omnist

conservative -- and also liberal views, such as those of

the Center For Ecoliteracy's Fritjof Capra (as well as

other sustainability leaders of Schumacher College):

We need to change our relationship to nature and the

basis5 of how we study science, economics, business and,

psychology in order to develop a systemic understanding of

how6 to address current ecological and social challenges.


So please email suggestions per how family members

of yours might become active agents of a social ecology;

roles few families in today's "99%" care enough about.

E.g., what kind of corrective political, economic, social,

-- and spiritual activities -- would YOU suggest for family-

cologists concerned with all our ecologies and posterities?

We don't have be a Berner nor a Trumper to make waves!



All creative ideas are greatly welcome, even ones as deep or

extreme as this goodie from the author of Care Of The Soul7.

But especially wanted are down to earth, closer to home

ideas about the only ecology all of us start out relying on:


On 12/19/13, we were listening to Back Story Radio,

NPR's very cool program about history. The latest one

was about how -- beginning around the early 1800's --

first religious and then commercial interests, took turns

evolving the celebration and the meaning of Christmas.

At the end of that radio broadcast, the show's history profs

spoke with Tyrone Jones, a black Santa from Philadelphia.

When asked what his mall's children hope for Christmas, he

said lots of them want mommy and daddy back together again.


Thus, again, our own DIY Fam C.O.R.D.

idea for preventing that kind of misery...


More happy families via familycology practices.

Maybe by following this "Fathering With Intentionality:

The Importance of Creating a Family Culture" advice8?

Or maybe the way the Catholic Church now suggests its

mothers conduct domestic churches9? In any case, for all

those wanting to do so, there is no legal obstacle why any

parent, regardless of creed, cannot as easily do the same.

And the more God-awful the world, the more we should.

Because is it not all too true that, healthy civilization-wise,

well-being begins -- but does not end -- with feeling good!

A building block for PRACTICAL spirituality is often humble awareness,

in our case under the family-centered practices of something we like to call

Family Congregations of Omnisc Redemptive Detachment (our name for ours).

An atheist family might see their family congregation as a Church of Humble

Gratitude10: a church with no "prayers" -- yet with blessed acts of thankfulness.

However, whatever our (dis)beliefs, cannot many of us agree with much of this...


* Matthew's Hick's, "Family Motivation: The glue that holds families together".11

* The goal of the Vanier Institute of the Family (beyond the borders of Canada) is

Making families as important to the life of society as they are to the lives of individuals.12

* Heritage Planning: "How to create a foundation upon which families can plan for and

what matters most to them today -- and for generations to come.13 If it is not soon too late.




Talk is as cheap as air & water. And too many hopeful dreams are all wet.

And so, our complementary game-changing, de-corporatism14, bottom line:

To counter the huge & growing economic, social, even religious pressures

tearing families apart today -- and, more so, threatening the future, how

about taking a few first steps towards your own "family congregation"?

And according to your own rules, not just obeying someone else's rules15!

And then -- if you want to be your own family brand, just spread the word

using technology to serve our common needs, not the other way around!

Still not yet moving from last to first?

More reasons for doing familycology:

"Fam C.O.R.D." families see their whole and one united families
as sacred corner stones of society. In narrow16 & broader ways16a,
they resurrect reminders about living and loving/caring and sharing,
which encourage more family members to circumscribe what they do;
so that they can be there for loved ones AND their larger communities.
(But in not the way family dynasties are perpetuated by family offices.)

How? Depends on what we do and don't do, familycology-wise.

As said above, family sacredness does not have to be "religious". E.g.
the Good Men Project example of awesome dedication to one's family,
inspiring words by Kirsten Tynan
17, famous jury nullification advocate.
(Neither does capital18 & business19 have to religiously depend on money.)



Fam C.O.R.D.: Much Stronger And Happier Families,

One Self-Nurturing Family Congregation At A Time.

No famcol membership fees or dogma. Just ideas worth

thinking about & practices of yours (done on your own).


Is it time for famcol spirituality to finally be resurrected? And in

accord with the spirit of hopefulness almost prayed by the author at

the end of these very thought-provoking insights about a 600 years

"forced march"20 from feudalism to corporations* to corporatism?*


"These problems and weaknesses are and should be the focus for civil society

opposition to the installation of corporatism. The modern corporation will

not disappear but it may not be able to be the foundation of a successor to

capitalism. From the above analysis it would seem the world is caught within a

transition process in which there can be no going back but the future aims of

global power may not be achieved and are not socially and humanly desirable.

  "This situation presents opportunities provided that the opposition

can be forward-thinking and creative* and not stuck fighting

the current battles with the perceptions and tools of the past."


We greatly look forward to you sending us your own ideas about famcol;

we don't store names unless you expressly give us your permision to do so.
