‘The world versus Donald Trump’ – this was the title of an online petition which was launched shortly after the election of Donald Trump as US president.
The initiators hoped that with 3 million signatures they could introduce a global movement to stop the “many Trumps in every town”. As strong this statement might be this approach isn’t very promising. Taking a position in support of one side or the other isn’t enough to fight against global fascism because the roots of fascism penetrate far too deeply into the structures of our economic and political systems and into our very systems of thought and belief.
We can only win the fight against the Trumps, Putins, Erodgans, Netanyahus – or whatever they might be called – if we put our full power and intelligence into building a new system.
This is where we have a chance.
There are many initiatives and movements worldwide that are already working towards this but they cannot yet agree on a common goal. It is enough if, to begin with, there are just a few places on Earth, a few experimental places in which we can discover how a society looks in which fascist character structures are no longer advantageous and in which there is no potential for fear and violence to arise. We need new forms of living together which enable all participants to acknowledge their own fascist traits and then to heal and lay them aside. These people do this on behalf of us all.
This work is only possible within a milieu that offers a non-violent basis for all aspects of life – right to the sources of our existence: to Eros & religion. It is here, beyond all moralising, dogma and doctrine that we perhaps find the deepest point from which we can lever out fascism. It is here, in the reconnection with the sacred, that we find the power that is stronger than all violence. Ultimately, a revolution of peace can only be successful on this basis, in spite of – or maybe even with all – the Trumps.
The text we want to share with you is an extract from the recent book by Dieter Duhm, published in German with the title, “The Immanent God”. May this text contribute to many people remembering their sacred source and encourage them to leave ‘turbo-capitalism’ behind them. This would be the greatest gift we could give to ourselves and to the Earth. If you are, or know, a lover of words and of the sacred who would want to take on the challenge of translating this deep poetic book from German into English please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Invitation to participate in the Ring of Power, a political-spiritual network of peace, founded by Sabine Lichtenfels. We have recently connected a current political question with the regular sunrise meditation on Monday. Here comes the invitation for the meditation of the coming month plus a medial received message by Sabine Lichtenfels: Why and in what way can my actions have a global effect?
