Personally one finds the least of superstitious indoctrination among local-community people. Alternatively, Establishment interjects fear among local-community people when plain truth and FACTS would be better.
Government doesn’t do democracy, people do.
https://popularresistance.org/the-upstate-new-york-town-that-took-back-its-power/ – More than forty years on, Massena — population now around 12,000 — still has some of the cheapest, cleanest electricity in the state. Its electricians are unionized and maintain reliable service in a region bordering Canada and often hit by harsh winter weather. To locals on both sides of the aisle, municipal ownership of the grid has come to seem like common sense.
Look behind the curtain.
C-Span hosted an interesting view abut AI this morning. The recent commentary has been whether AI will take over humanity to the extent of replacement. AI, like for example the Industrial Revolution, will be whatever humanity lets it be.
The following story offers an opportunity for delicacy of understanding that may be lost on the average hierarchical capitalist. We are watching an interesting attempt at elite dignity as they ‘splain away continued support for foreign and sometime-enemy monopolies playing out across the USA.
So many ads seem dedicated to indoctrination for profit, away from the normal, respectful and easy relationship between humanity and nature. This marketing strategy is harmful to both nature and people.
The foundation of democracy is individual involvement and the dream of America is the ability for citizens to so act. A troubling parallel arises between the PRC and the USA, both of which are republics, as we watch the democracy that is the function of We The People, not of government, is restricted by the hierarchic Establishment. If the common impulse toward peace must be stifled to protect oligarchical control of the global elite, what are we to make of the American Dream of democracy?
Too soon to get worn down, boys and girls. Nature is our ally, and we are hers’.
C-Span hosted conversations about Climate Change and childcare, both excellent topics that are too often sidelined in order that state/corporate media can promote the celebrity du jour (Biden and Trump).
The system looks good from a bird’s-eye view of capitalism. An intellectually-honest double take tells a different story.
Daniel Ellsberg seems to suggest the difficulty of speaking truth to power.
Debates have become quite artificial and set up as a stage for Establishment. We need a debate with candidates who have different ideas aside from capitalistic Establishment. Debates are as structured as are elections due to corruption and money in the process. Politicians must have the ability to defend their policies in the presence of fellow candidates. Currently we have nothing but a reality show maintained for entertainment rather than informational value.
It would seem Iberdola in Spain has some level of control of the electrical grid of NYS, including profits.
One is grateful for a perspective relating to wildfires that include the FACT of Climate Change. The Central NYS region experienced AQI of far over 400, and this is dangerous. As much as one appreciates the local news reporting that focuses on capitalism as our savior, to insinuate that “experts” he has heard inform that wildfires such as the one in Canada are normal seems to do a disservice to intellectual honesty.
Weary as one becomes of setting the record straight, but due to MSM obfuscation, one supposes one must. So here goes——
