That “we are a 2-Party system” is misinformation from the Democratic-Party corporation and the Republican-Party corporation, which in collaboration illegitimately purport to “run American elections”. This is not specified as legitimate in the US Constitution. In contrast, 3rd-Party Greens are expressing their platform in NYS in the election for governor. Political Parties should participate in elections; political-Party corporations aren’t sanctioned to run elections. This isn’t the Former USSR.
Capitalism has mandated and legislated regulations and lifestyle by which many of We The People have accepted as rational and in one’s best interests, but FACTually speaking they may be nothing other than sales techniques to enrich hierarchy and commercial interests. This renter was weary of paying $1,200 per month in rent along with expenses, and imagined living arrangements that suit his personal ability, choices, and lifestyle.
And by US, one means us, not USA.
What won’t money buy in the USA of material stuff, power, and influence. Not much. The same doesn’t apply to human rights or environmental rights, in which the opposite seems to be the FACT.
C-Span is valuable for the individual-citizen call-in ability to voice opinions. Again this morning, a caller expressed his concern that political Parties offer only 1 opinion, when 2 opinions are available. Really? Only 2? and so goes disability of imagination, indoctrination, and/or total brainwashing. How are so many Americans so convinced that only 2 opinions are available? Join the real world, people. Expand your ideas, open your ears, and walk into the sunshine and breathe the clean air. (Deciding not to say “crawl out from under the rock”)…..
A problem on the topic of fascism is that, until authoritarian exploitation of human resources (people) or natural resources (environment) becomes noticeable, the money is nice. A governance based on :”the economy” can be a euphemism for dictatorship. It is easy to overlook corruption when money is being generated, and this includes our nation of shareholders. Add to this the highly questionable policy of Citizens United by which lawmakers are purchased by big-money interests, and supposedly monitoring sources such as the Federal Reserve, which is supposed to maintain balance in “the economy”, has over a decade kept too low, interests. Keeping interest rates abnormally low has forced family savings accounts into the stock market that can be considered speculative. Low interest rates may also promote inflation.
Bureaucracy requires winners and losers in order to stay in control of the public. The majority of local-community members want to live their personal lives according to their own wishes, in peace and dignity. Wars are perpetrated for the promotion of hierarchy and generally for the interests and profits of the wealthy. The obscenely wealthy generally didn’t gain their positions according to principles of restraint and self-awareness. Anyone must acknowledge the work that goes into becoming wealthy as defined by oligarchy, but at that level a line often has been crossed. Use of said wealth to pass laws favorable to what has come to be called “the economy” exacerbates the corruption.
If people were living in a dictatorship, could control best be wielded over said people by using euphemism rather than direct challenge of control due to dictatorship? For example, if hierarchy stated boldly that the system of government precisely was in place to protect and promote interests of said hierarchy, said people could become restless. But if an idea was imposed in place of the concept of a system in place to protect and promote hierarchy, was used in place of direct language, people could become compliant. What if the euphemism used was “the economy”? Is this notion worthy of discussion?
C-Span would be of service to offer ideas about a peace budget. We don’t have one at this time. We do however have a very expensive Pentagon budget that seems a prerequisite to maintain business as usual.
To be clear, this is sometimes called satire. It is a way to express truth rather than FACTS—
What does it say when the topic of censorship raises the question as to whether a particular situation applies to school curriculum or to parents. Shouldn’t interests be similar; and if interests are not similar, should this be a matter of concern?
Should parents be involved in education? Should government decide the curriculum? How much input is a teacher permitted? We probably haven’t spent enough time demanding and thinking of the definitions used to characterize society. These vague areas are spaces into which dictatorship seep.
C-Span offered a glimpse from the view of Jane Harmon (D-CA) about her idea of American governance and policy.
This sort of exposes the maniacal undercurrent of NATO, does’t it?—
Because the USA seems more intent on “spreading democracy around the world” than promoting democracy in the USA, many local-community members are practicing democracy in their own interest.
The first discussion on C-Span today asked about the Pentagon-budget request from Biden. The first caller set the tone of comedy as this person who identified as calling from the UK where he must enjoy his nation’s 1-payer government-run health care system urge Americans to dump more money into the Pentagon due to the dangers around the world. The dry humor from this caller masks the irony and insult of the call.
