Ideas and tools for local-community solidarity and strength as relates to lifestyle including financial issues—
C-Span asked the question this morning, “can the government get inflation under control”. A better question could be the reason the Trump Administration began the trajectory of snow-balling inflation.
Questions can be as important as answers to establish reality about topics that most of us haven’t absorbed.
King Charles may be sufficiently aware to “feel the weight of history”. This is good news.
We The People are spending too much time catering to and cleaning up after oligarchs. One area about which this is true seems to be energy production, where the air is sucked out of the room by fossil fuel industries. Support of a dirty and obsolete industry for the sake of nostalgia and inertia feels dangerous. Consider a few new ideas.—-
Everyone gets to decide for themselves if activities filling their day have meaning. This is an interesting topic and possibly not considered enough by many of us. Awareness seems a component and slowing down may be one technique toward that end.
Another reason I love NYS—-https://bcpeaceaction.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/war-merchant-resistors-flyer-local.pdf –September 9th at 11 AM Join Broome County Veterans for Peace and other peace groups to expose Lockheed Martin & BAE SystemsWeapons System

–end of bcpeaceaction info—–The Southern Tier of NYS has been a hotbed of citizen responsibility; often in spite of politicians and bureaucrats.

These two pieces of legislation would advance the Tribal management of public lands and improve the protection of sacred and cultural sites. They are set to go into a congressional committee hearing this month.<link href=’https://actionnetwork.org/css/style-embed-v3.css’ rel=’stylesheet’ type=’text/css’ /><script —

The carousel of absurdity includes governmental negligence in ignoring the plight of US citizens such as exist in Jackson, Mississippi while so-called protecting democracy in Ukraine, and pro-capitalist D&R duopoly promotion of imperialism against local communities in foreign nations. To begin to raise voices against this tyranny, one may sign the petitions below, if one is so inclined—–
From RAN.org — The Consumer Goods Forum exists to help corporations like Procter & Gamble, Mondelēz and Nestlé reduce their negative environmental and human rights impacts. Sounds good, right?
What’s not good is when the Consumer Goods Forum turns a blind eye to corporate members who engage in violence against Indigenous peoples. We plan to corner the Consumer Goods Forum at NYC Climate Week later this month and demand accountability for violence against Indigenous peoples — please lend us your signature.
Consumer Goods Forum member Asia Pulp and Paper has used physical violence, intimidation and food crop destruction to displace several Indigenous and traditional communities like the Sakai People and Lubuk Mandarsah from their land in Indonesia. This company has one of the worst human rights track records.
It’s simply inexcusable for the Consumer Goods Forum to allow its members to use the forum in bad faith, as a way to greenwash serious environmental and human rights violations.

Please take a look at the Green Social Thought website: http://www.greensocialthought.org/
Its focus is: “Produce less. Distribute it fairly. Create a greener world for all
To remain locked within a box of indoctrination is simply too boring and a waste of a perfectly good life. What can I learn from others?
Transfer of the wealth of the nation has proceeded over decades under the guise of democracy that is the current euphemism for capitalism.
In a nation where the life expectancy continues to drop and water is unavailable to growing numbers of people, we might question funding of foreign wars that seems beneficial to American oligarchs but at the cost of US citizens.
Democracy means each individual respect their own life, and says so.
Hierarchical Establishment types may have begun to notice the success when locally-supportive people work plans for lifestyle that are logical, effective, and fair. Sensible would be a change away from the depravity of capitalistic process toward more people-friendly systems. Instead it feels like Establishment is attempting to hitch their wagon to the stars of local community.
A realistic look at ourselves needs a strong dose of comedy. Views that are totally bogus are given too much credence without humor.
If manufacturing and industry is the goal, we’re possibly on the right track. If the goal is viable life on Earth, a few changes are in order. Natural rights encompass people and nature, because we are of The Creator, in whatever way each imagines Her/Him, It, or Cause-And-Effect.
Heard on a Bill Moyers discussion years ago—paraphrase—–governments don’t do democracy, people do democracy.
The story of several oligarchs pulling strings behind the scenes obscures the more relevant story of institutionalized hierarchical process that feels too similar to a Pyramid Scheme economy. Fascism may more nearly be the correct definition since the system is held in place less by persuasion and more by laws.
