Original Politics: Making America Sacred Again

To recreate a whole and sacred America, it is important to piece together the forgotten fragments of history that are currently keeping the country divided. Just as a traditional Native American potter begins a new pot with shards of old pots—to honor the ancestors and bring the energies of the past into the present—Original Politics reassembles the nation as a whole out of the seemingly disparate shards from our origins. The most significant forgotten piece is the profound effect Native America had on the founding values of this nation.

Original Politics convincingly demonstrates how the best aspects of the founding vision of America were inspired or directly appropriated from living Native American cultures— concepts such as natural rights, liberty, and egalitarian justice. Native America has in- spired what Parry sees as the sacred purpose of the nation: bringing all the world’s peoples together on one soil in a harmonious cultural mosaic of unity and diversity.

 

“In a brilliant historical retelling, Original Politics makes clear that America’s sacred legacy—while appearing to have fallen in the ditch of a crude and phony populism— is destined to be a thriving pluralistic democracy and a sanctuary of ecological values.”
James O’Dea, former president of The Institute of Noetic Sciences, author of Cultivating Peace and The Conscious Activist.

“Packed with deep truths and timeless wisdom. “
—GREGG BRADEN, New York Times best selling author of The Divine Matrix and Deep Truth

In Original Thinking, Glenn Aparicio Parry delves into the evolution of Western thought to recover the living roots of wisdom that can correct the imbalances in our modern worldview. Inspired by groundbreaking dialogues that the author organized between Native American elders and leading-edge Western scientists to explore the underlying principles of the cosmos, this book offers a radical revisioning of how we think. Asking questions such as, Is it possible to come up with an original thought?, What does it mean to be human?, and How has our thinking created our world today?, Parry challenges us to consider many of our most basic assumptions. To think originally–as in thinking new thoughts that have never been thought or said before–is according to Parry, largely an illusion.
