Month: March 2022
A special celebration of our home occurs on April 22; but who doesn’t love their home each day?
An incident of brainwashing is evident in bureaucratic contempt for Utopian ideas. That to reach perfection is ostensibly impossible and the requirement to do so may be unhealthy, to attempt toward as nearly as possible that which is ideal surely isn’t wrong. Yet when ideas are introduced that to support a more equitable life for We The People, along with liberty and justice, you will hear a majority of politicians reject these notions. Yet the personal status of politicians seem to tend to heights of quality of life that are legislatively unavailable to the general public.
In other nations this could be described as dictatorship.
Mitch McConnell graced us with his view about expanded funding for The Military-Industrial Complex to enhance national security. The view from Mitch McConnell is predictable when one considers reports of his familial connections to commercial interests in China. National security for American oligarchs is often imagined in terms of “protecting American interests overseas” which is commercial interest in foreign nations.
America woke up this morning to this important news
FACTually speaking, only most Americans care about somebody hitting somebody over American imperialism
Each of the Russian-Ukrainian military action and the Supreme Court confirmation hearing raises important questions about US policy. As we “spread democracy around the world”, how is democracy playing out in the USA?
This is what justice could look like
Corporate-owned-state-run MSM has an easy job in broadcasting news when the public has the focus and memory capacity of a gnat. A different view can be spewed each day with little to no comment from consumers.
As one who is deeply unconcerned with another person amassing financial wealth, one does however object to the violence, aggression and tyranny said person presumes due to that accumulation of finances over human sentiment. Those purchased by that wealth is a personal choice. The harm to unconnected people and nature is another thing. Presumption by hierarchy to influence emotionally the public, and includes efforts of the well-paid entertainment industry, will continue to highlight Russian oligarchs as though there are no American oligarchs, as they protect their own territory of wealth and privilege.
A democracy requires FACTual information and this implies a Free Press. Notoriously the news sources in the USA are owned and controlled by only several corporate entities that seem as involved in disseminating reports as they may be in donating to political campaigns. This further implies that commercial interests and governance are closely connected.
Establishment has long used the notion of NIMBY to shame and silence local-community members. In FACT, NIMBY seems to be survival and thriving. Local-community members seem to have this right this idea is intrinsic and backed up by the US Constitution.
One may worry that the standing of Jane Fonda may be sullied among the oligarchs of the globe due to her position on exploitation; but then one recalls that Jane Fonda never held an honored position among those with predatory character—
C-Span isn’t coming in this weekend, as it often reacts when there is a heavy cloud cover. The less technologically-touchy NPR, however, is coming in just fine. All the technology required is to plug the radio into the wall, if our local grid is still functioning. Advertising has ignored the FACT that the more complicated the technology, the less dependable it is. And so do our industry-purchased politicians so ignore. But the money is nice.
Similar to the history of Jesus, the Establishment interpretation of the ideas of The Founders are quite different from what can be understood by reading their words. Not only The Founders had a diverse and sophisticated view of government, but also what in 2022 could be called “influencers” also could be eye-opening. For example, having heard but never read the ideas of Thomas Paine, who is said to have influenced views for liberty, to read his ideas is fascinating and heartening.
WHO ARE WE?
Who doesn’t understand the motivation of Zalensky and in FACT who wouldn’t act the same in his shoes? And this may be how history is rewritten to fit the Establishment script. The movement of non-violence that was the foundation of ideas from MLK, Jr. has been white-washed for political expediency by capitalists who are posturing as pro-democracy when an informed person can understand that capitalism is hierarchical and antithetical to democracy.
C-Span showcased US politicians seemingly enthusiastic over having recently listened to Ukrainian President Zalensky.
It’s not like there aren’t alternatives to war and Climate Change. Denial and obfuscation aren’t working so well. Let’s try reality.
