Jeffrey Arthur spoke about at the January 2008 Babylon Green Party gathering about Ethical and Socially Responsible Investing based upon his prior experience as a stockbroker. He will now share another facet of his personality in challenging the audience to decide for themselves about the poetry of Charles Bukowski. As the proprietor of independent arts center Pisces Cafe, Arthur was known as both a supporter of poetry and for his ability to keep an audience enraptured.

Charles Bukowski has been described by his critics as merely an alcoholic sexist, his supporters have hailed him a a voice of average working American. This program will give the audience a chance to decide if he was either or both. According to Wikipedia, Bukowski was born in Germany on August 16, 1920 to a German mother and an American WWI veteran father, whom originally named him Heinrich Karl Bukowski. After his family moved to the US in 1923, they anglicized his name. Wikipedia describes Bukowski as an “American poet, novelist, and short story writer. Bukowski’s writing was heavily influenced by the geography and atmosphere of his home city of Los Angeles, and is marked by an emphasis on the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women, and the drudgery of work. A prolific author, Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories, and six novels, eventually having over 60 books in print. In 1986 Time called Bukowski a ‘laureate of American lowlife.‘” Bukowski died on March 9, 1994.

Babylon Green Party Gatherings are held on the first Wednesday of every month. The May 5, 2010 Gathering will feature the candidates seeking the Green Party nomination to be on their statewide ballot. These will include potential candidates for Governor, Lt. Governor, both US Senate seats, Comptroller, and New York Attorney General. The only way that the Green Party can regain ballot status in NY is to get 50,000 votes for their Governor candidate in 2010. This opportunity comes only once every four years, and it only applies to the Governor’s race. Gaining ballot status will enable the Green Party to run more peace candidates, more single-payer candidates, more anti-fracking candidates, and more sustainable energy candidates. The last time that the Green Party of New York State had ballot status it set the record for running the most Green candidates of any state.
The Green Party is an alternative party to the Democrats and Republicans. The four pillars of the Green Party are:

  • Nonviolence/Peace;
  • Grassroots Democracy;
  • Social and Economic Justice; and
  • Ecological Wisdom.
