Circle for Original Thinking
with Glenn Aparicio Parry
Welcome to Circle for Original Thinking, America’s electronic talking circle for visionary thinkers, an open forum for fresh ideas and timeless wisdom applied to today’s political and ecological challenges. Each week we bring together creative thinkers from a variety of different traditions, asking the hard questions on the important issues of the day: political polarization, climate change, virulent viruses, and other symptoms of humanity being out of balance with the natural world. Our goal is to create a new and improved version of E Pluribus Unum, from the many to the one—and this time not leave anybody out. Join us as we embark on this quest.
In Honor of RBG
This week, in honor of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, we do not have any guests on the program. Instead, Glenn Aparicio Parry offers his personal reflections on RBG in the context of American history and what he sees as America’s sacred purpose: unity in diversity, a purpose yet to be realized.
“Ruth Bader Ginsburg was Jewish but she was also catholic with a small “c.” She was a Universalist. She represented the universal good in human beings. And if she were Catholic, I believe she would be canonized. I also believe her legacy will not be polarization because Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be active in the spirit world. She will appear in people’s dreams and visions. She will have an impact on events yet to unfold.”
