In the end, all that’s left is soul. Soul and The Earth are inseparable as is the soul and people.
The C-Span discussion about the Korean War was ushered in with an apparently government-inspired movie staging the pro-US perspective of our participation. The movie itself was a delightful reminder of one’s childhood in Upstate NY, where during so many auditorium-movie displays, students were mandated to watch hours of pro-capitalistic views that effectively indoctrinated into capitalism as democracy.
One risks being wearisome because, as says Bernie Sanders, I keep talking about it because it keeps happening (paraphrase). This time a subliminal message emits from Dr. Phil.
Nick Timiraos speaks to the terror by the Feds of deflation, which they abhor because people anticipate lower prices as prices deflate, and so put off buying products, and so a spiral of unemployment is set into place. The reason US workers were expected to accept globalism was ‘splained with lower product costs
Governor Hochul has put into place an inducement for sex work. Sex work should be decriminalized. But more to the point, we need universal health care that would be less costly and more inclusive and that could serve more of We The People, including sex workers.
Experts have ‘splained to We The People as reasons We The People should tolerate globalism that dismantled the American middle class while placing control of the supply chain into the hands of foreign nations, the pro-business practice of corporate ability to take advantage of foreign-nation quasi-slavery labor that was to render US products cheaper. US products are currently quite expensive to consumers.
One heard on NPR recently, apparently in answer to complaints that Climate Change has been ignored by Establishment, that “scientists have warned us about Climate Change for years”. Thank you, NPR for this enlightenment; and apparently the broken link is MSM that hasn’t reported that which scientists have insisted.
The best defense may be a good offense.
The following feels like a caricature of capitalistic hierarchical Establishment actions.—
Instill fear so the public will do your will.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_aHMRqaUXo – $325 million from companies who licensed technologies and inventions by NIH scientists — discoveries that WE the TAXPAYER paid for.
US imperialism is based upon the notion of “spreading democracy” around the globe as the US inflicts capitalism which is hierarchical and anti-democratic upon American citizens at home. Reagan accosted America with Reaganomics so now Biden in a strange twist of emulation chooses to hook his star to the “Trickle Down” principles and has self-labeled policies as Bidenomics. So Biden can inflict “Trickle Down” without saying the offensive reality.
Gratitude to Bill Huston for reminding that the delicate topic of Home Rule has been incidental to CELDF, which offers a democracy school. In other words, this group reminds We The People that human rights are relevant, and how best to secure them.
This summer we seem to have reached a tipping point about effects of global warming on humanity and nature that would permit denial as an obviously inane view. And so Establishment has assumed a policy of mitigation as to the impact, rather than dealing with the underlying anomalies of lifestyle that contributed to the global warming. This seems to be a policy that indulges big-money campaign donors who profit by the harmful policies that contribute to global warming, and is based on dependence of lawmakers on the largess of Citizens United, to their personal well being. This leaves out attention to the needs of We The People.
Some in hierarchical Establishment recognize a need to indoctrinate the public that pagan lifestyle is undesirable. The concept of individual autonomy doesn’t comport comfortably with hierarchy.
Ratchet private ownership one click and you may have feudalism.
