What do MAGA voters and the Democratic Base have in common? Some people could guess, the commonality is being hoodwinked by separate branches of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly.
Some people have called for a definition of progress in terms of peace, good health, and equality rather than a progress defined in terms of aggression, exploitation and greed. It is incomprehensible when hearing policies and actions to make work, a progress that uses finite resources in pursuit of infinite growth. How obvious can it be that “trickle down” promotes exactly that definition of progress. In other words, those who follow this line of propaganda are simply whistling past the graveyard.
Some people see the origin of Creation less as a man with a beard and wearing a night gown, standing in the clouds, and more like cause and effect orchestrated by each individual. A C-Span caller the other day said the hurricane was a judgment on Florida for shipping migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
Breathtakingly simplistic and snide. And these are our leaders.
C-Span hosted a call-in discussion in which at 7:30AM a woman expressed a view (paraphrase) that we need a people’s counsel that approved or disapproved the laws and policies by politicians. If principles in the US Constitution hadn’t been so defiled by institutionalized greed and corruption in the electoral process enforced through Citizens United, our system would be representative in which politicians had as their first concern, We The People.
So many ways to do better
https://www.ecowatch.com/pollinator-gardens-bus-stop-roofs-europe.html –Across Europe, more and more bus stops are sporting a new look — with lush green roofs designed to support pollinators.

The more diversity in perspective, the more accurate can be final conclusions. MSM sound-bite reporting, however, is excellent for indoctrination. The public should act accordingly. Media doesn’t necessarily imply a Free Press.
Imagination…..the true home of reality. As quoted by Tobias Churton. In other words, departures from reality as suggested by Establishment may too often be another style of indoctrination. To build a reality it first may need to be imagined.
Quite simply stated, Indigenous wisdom is veritable. In a conversation presented in the organicconsumer link toward the end of this story, Russell Brand offers a conversation between a FOX talking head and a down-home farmer that’s for real. To listen is time well invested. Ultimately the message as stated by said farmer is “complex systems have too many unexpected consequences”……that’s right…..
Direction and control by hierarchy are supported by homogenizing culture into a malleable and sterile unit.
One is under informed about the details of the following story about Brazil to analyze the contents. But where one finds symptoms it is logical to look for a disease. We know democracy is diminishing at an alarming rate around the globe ad most markedly in the supposed bastion of democracy called the USA. Hierarchy are gaining wealth at the expense of the majority of humanity and this is explained by “running government like a business”. Climate Change is too obvious to be denied by any other than the most dedicated environmental exploiters. Climate Change is a price paid by Earth and humanity to promote hierarchical Establishment financial interests.
Reference to capitalism when one could as well have used the label tyranny is based on a society that is obsessed with money as a measure of normal.
The jolting sudden media preoccupation with monarchy lately only highlights the depravity one cannot ignore in our culture that mirrors feudal systems.
