Capitalism on a continuum feels too similar to organized crime. This raises ideas of money laundering. We could stand a discussion of the reason this is not the FACT.

And again from Lee Camp, a censored comedian—–https://twitter.com/LeeCamp/status/1432014740495163409 –Everyone should know that Afghanistan was a giant money-laundering scheme for US oligarchs.- Over $2 Trillion spent over 20 years – Much of that went into the pockets of war profiteers like Lockheed Martin, Boeing& Raytheon – Pallets of billions of $$ have literally gone missing–end of leecamp info–
The USA is unavoidably linked with arms deals around the globe to an extent that could raise issues of money laundering on a scale that is breathtaking. This raises questions in the minds of some people of the extravagant funding for Ukraine that is being contemplated. Disregard for warning from The Founders to stay out of foreign entanglements have been defied by capitalistic hierarchy. Prosecution of so-called arms dealers from a government that has some explaining to do about its own actions, has provided the means by which we could trade said dealer for Griner—– https://moguldom.com/408818/russia-to-america-we-will-only-trade-wnba-star-brittney-griner-for-arms-trafficker-victor-merchant-of-death-bout/ –“If wnba players were paid adequately or anywhere near nba players in America, #BrittneyGriner wouldn’t even need to be going to Russia and end up being arrested for no damn vape!! Let’s talk about it!!” celly cimone tweeted.–end of moguldom info–As an unapologetic feminist, one sees the relentless selling of military force by the USA to inflict upon the globe as another facet of patriarchal presumption that produces dialogue that is held byway of armed conflict. War that is waged under the misnomer of “protecting our interests”, FACTually kills women and children. FACTually war appears to be a money-maker for oligarchs. Hence a presupposition of money laundering.
This feminist values both matriarchal and patriarchal manifestation in society, when they are in balance. And so lack of balance means the talents and abilities of everyone are trapped into service to a system that is reaching the pinnacle of patriarchal hierarchy, in one person’s view. https://www.commondreams.org/views/2022/05/16/young-americas-dilemma-predatory-choice-between-student-loan-debt-and-military –It is easy to draw parallels between student loan companies and another institution that targets students, especially low income students, with promises of a fulfilling life: the US military.–end of commondreams via radindiemedia info–
One considers extraordinary funding for the Ukraine in a military action activated in 2014 with removal of a democratically-elected President with the US insinuating corruption by that President, as though the US has room to make the accusation, as another angle of out-of-balance patriarchy and hierarchy. So many instances of referral to “protecting American interests overseas” is at the cost of American interests in the USA.
The “3-branches of government” intended to protect principles of the US Constitution seems to have transformed into a capitalistic machine of hierarchy. Aside from Supreme Court candidates suspected of misleading Senators during hearings, which brings to mind the topic of perjury, get this—–https://popular.info/p/supreme-court-greenlights-corruption?utm_source=email&s=r –There are few meaningful limits remaining on money in politics. As a result, politics has become increasingly dominated by the wealthy. The average U.S. Senator is a multi-millionaire. On Monday, the Supreme Court made the situation a little bit worse. Writing in dissent, Justice Kagan lays out a scenario which, as of today, is now legal:A candidate for public office extends a $500,000 loan to his campaign organization, hoping to recoup the amount from benefactors’ post-election contributions. Once elected, he devotes himself assiduously to recovering the money; his personal bank account, after all, now has a gaping half-million-dollar hole. The politician solicits donations from wealthy individuals and corporate lobbyists, making clear that the money they give will go straight from the campaign to him, as repayment for his loan. He is deeply grateful to those who help, as they know he will be—more grateful than for ordinary campaign contributions (which do not increase his personal wealth). And as they paid him, so he will pay them. In the coming months and years, they receive government benefits—maybe favorable legislation, maybe prized appointments, maybe lucrative contracts. The politician is happy; the donors are happy. The only loser is the public. It inevitably suffers from government corruption.–end of popularinformation info–
The above several governing ideas could be called DIY transfer of wealth from the 100% to the 1%……AKA laundering……

Industrialization is a product of technology that can be either a servant or a master. What we are losing isn’t compensated by convenience, in the long run. Youngsters who express being perturbed by the future handed to them by their elders, will remember their responsibility to their own children, one is convinced.

One presumes to suspect Deb Haaland understands imbalance between patriarchy and matriarchy, and has the power to challenge said balance. PETITION—–Sign if you wish—-For generations, the He Sapa (Black Hills) have been revered by the Oceti Sakowin as sacred grounds. As Indigenous Peoples, we are the original stewards of this land, and we have never relinquished that right. That’s why it’s so important for us to take a stand against harmful extraction in our homelands — like the mining interests currently tearing up and poisoning the He Sapa. Will you help us eliminate these threats to our water, treaty territory, and sacred sites? Right now, please join us in asking U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland to suspend all new mining claims in the Black Hills until the Lakota’s treaty rights are properly acknowledged and honored.Over the past weeks, I’ve been working closely with the good people of the Black Hills Clean Water Alliance to understand and help communicate the scope and urgency of the mining problem in the Black Hills. We collaborated to create a blog for you to read, which explains the situation in more detail, and the action you can take to convince Secretary Haaland and the U.S. Department of the Interior to intervene.At present, 184,000 acres of mining claims litter the Black Hills, covering 15 percent of our sacred grounds, and water system contamination caused by mining represents the greatest threat to the area. And, of course, the mining companies routinely walk away after tearing up the land and contaminating the water, leaving waste behind — forcing taxpayers to cover the clean up costs. It’s long past time to return the sacred by honoring treaty rights with Indigenous nations and treating Unci Maka — our grandmother Earth — with utmost respect. So, please read our blog and then take action to protect the He Sapa. You can help make a huge difference for our homelands and our people.Wopila tanka — thank you for your action and care!

The US Constitution doesn’t seem to sanction elections run by political Parties, and to permit control of political debates by political Parties seems equally corrupt.
