Complexity is built into the system to enable control. Meanwhile, a few dedicated high-value principles are all that is really needed. But where would corruption hide?
And the USA still denies its citizens a 1-payer comprehensive public health care system that would be less costly, more efficient, and inclusive.
We needn’t ignore reality and then accept indoctrination.
On this small-business Saturday, free market concepts should be important. In the USA, corporate-owned politicians have put into place laws and policies that significantly undermine local sole proprietorship in favor of chain store privilege.
Today C-Span at around 2:30PM, is airing a Congressional Q&A on the topic of US Drone Strikes. This is an eyeopener on a topic about which most people have a passing awareness and little more. Transparency is stressed by such groups as the ACLU, and defended against by some politicians. That drones are used by one nation against the citizens of another seems to be beyond the pale.
The public has no idea what goes on behind closed doors pertaining to politics. In NYS this was called 3-men-in-a-room politics. Or was it 2-men? Who knows?
When the Republican branch of the duopoly are in power they investigate the Democratic branch of the duopoly and vice versa. This is an excellent bi-partisan deflection that keeps in power our 2-Party system and the oligarchy behind it. Meanwhile local-community members around the globe and including the USA are warned we “must sacrifice”
World peace is a good way to honor our Veterans and to challenge Climate Change, by the way.
Too often freedom for one person comes at the liability of another. Socialism could be a label to suggest balancing away from exploitation of this type, if it must be labeled. Another phrase could be respect for natural, human, and civil rights. Either way, everyone should have a voice in defining freedom, not only the hierarchy.
C-Span hosted a call-in discussion on the topic of age limits for political-office holders. This seems to bring to mind cultures that respect the experience of elders while young people are leaders. Americans need look no further for a model than Native communities. But principles need to be measured in terms of wisdom and experience as compared to terms of greed and privilege. If this isn’t the case, a critical limitation on knowledge stops us in 1619, as seems to be the case.
When one head-of-state promotes the notion of protection from criminal activity of other heads-of-state, does this feel like the icing on the cake of world oligarchical privilege and control? In other words, this seems like a preemptive self-serving maneuver for absolution. One includes in this happy fraternity both sides of the D&R duopoly.
What else can we do other than destroy nature and people?
An episode on The Office included Darryll telling Kelly that he liked her but (paraphrase) she needed to decide for herself what she wanted and stop playing games. A befuddled Kelly looks into the camera and says (paraphrase) Darryll says exactly what’s on his mind…..who does that?
The US public has been hearing endless descriptions of life in our nation, and the exceptional supremacy over lives of other people around the globe. In FACT, the rest of the globe is often so informed of US exceptionalism. MSM that represents the D&R duopoly are the mouthpiece for this information. But more and more we begin to hear alternative views that seem legitimate when we consider there must be more than one view. Consider a few other perspectives…
A reality-show President seems slowly to lose his polish to reality-show constituents. If the Republican Party could regain the sense of humor that is grounded in self confidence, perhaps they would elect Liz Cheney as Speaker of The House.
