FREEDOM AND SAFETY


If one may use artistic license, it seems to be an especially Trumpian-style of hubris in the phrase “it takes a good man with a gun to stop a bad man with a gun”.  First we need to recognize the “good man”.  Would that be one who attracts admiration by denigrating women and talking about grabbing them?  Next one must accept the premise that “good men with guns” aren’t as frightened of “bad men with guns” as may be, for example, 10-year-old girls.

To spread as protection the notion of relying on said “good men with guns”, leaves the public exposed to even more threat in the belief in said rhetoric.  Better to understand one’s exposure than to put trust in paper tigers.

Said Establishment hierarchy are good at propaganda.  Several other examples come to mind—

*A rising tide raises all boats, economically speaking

*Capitalism is the best opportunity for good lifestyle for the most people

*The US is “spreading democracy around the world” when in FACT it’s traditional imperialism

*Globalism will be good for Americans

*We are a 2-Party system

*Money is Free Speech

Yet some people continue to buy into the propaganda.  And by the way, what’s up with a society that believes “arming good men with guns” in public places, doesn’t simply intimidate everyone else.  And where is the right to do so?  What is an average citizen to do when a “good man with a gun” mistakes a bad attitude for sinister intent?  Must we all always ensure a happy face?  When does that become tyranny?

https://countercurrents.org/2022/05/war-as-terrorism/         –According to our count, by 2022, some 387,000 civilians had been killed thanks to war’s violence in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria, and Yemen. Civilian deaths similarly occurred in countries like Somalia where President Biden just redeployed hundreds of American troops in another round of the military offensive against the Islamic terror group al-Shabab (which has grown stronger in these years of all-American violence).

People living where the U.S. has fought have died in their homes and neighborhoods from bombings, shellings, missile attacks, and shootings. They’ve died while shopping for groceries or walking or driving to school or work. They’ve stepped on mines or cluster bombs while collecting wood or farming their fields. Various parties in our conflicts have kidnapped or assassinated people as they went about their everyday lives. Girls and women have purposely been raped as an attack on their communities. Human Rights Watch has documented how, in Afghanistan, parties on all sides of the war on terror, including troops and police allied with the United States, have raped, kidnapped, shot, or tortured civilians, including children.

And yet most Americans never seemed to take in how much civilians suffered from our war tactics, widely publicized as “surgical” and “precise” in their targeting of Islamic extremists, even as they now take in how the Russians are slaughtering Ukrainian civilians.–end of countercurrents info–

War stenographers on MSM news discussions use the phrase “unprovoked Russian military action toward Ukraine” as though intellectual honesty wouldn’t suggest that any sane nation wouldn’t challenge NATO on its border.  The word unprovoked is so ubiquitous in news stenography as to defy coincidence or genuineness.

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.

That “we are a 2-Party system” is a fabrication of the Republican/Democratic duopoly and spread by MSM.  In FACT the majority of voters aren’t either registered Democratic or Republican.  The censorship about this info must be envied by bureaucrats of the Former USSR and their simplistic style of 1-Party elections.  
Regardless of which character sits in the Oval Office, We The People have work to do to maintain principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  Several items to challenge—*We need the integrity of ranked-choice voting so voters won’t feel compelled to “hold your nose and vote”*Censored debates must be stopped.  The Democratic/Republican duopoly pretends to legitimate debates in what is nothing other than another campaign show.  Independent debates run by uninterested sponsors such as The League of Women Voters, must be restored.  (Access www.debates.org to understand the extent of duopoly control).  The so-called Debate Commission is a corporation to promote the Democratic corporation and Republican corporation, not to inform We The People*Challenge and stop gerrymandering that is a trick especially of the Republican branch of the duopoly.*Stop voter suppression by political Parties, and especially confront and stop Party suppression, which is the over-arching approach to voter suppression.  Party suppression seems to have been the responsibility of the Democratic corporation*Promote by law ranked-choice voting, so we won’t be told again, by D&R duopoly, to “hold your nose and vote”If these issues are handled, our next elections can be honorable. *******************************************************************https://news.gallup.com/poll/15370/party-affiliation.aspx—-Political Party affiliation of voters.

WITHDRAWS SUPPORT FROM FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE–end of lwv info–Murray Bookchin, who founded social ecology, a theory that strongly influenced early Green Socialist thought, strongly advocated the discussion and study group as the first step of any revolutionary movement. A group of individuals meets to expand their knowledge of radical thought and form a radical intellectual community; through the give and take of discussion, can eventually form ideas for next steps in organizing and political activity. According to Bookchin, study groups help create solidarity and a shared language — with a shared coherent vision — for building a mass, organizing, political movement!
Along with Climate Change, many people oppose the imperialism of the USA under control of the Republican/Democratic duopoly.  Use of the wealth of our nation should be to enhance quality of life for We The People rather than for imperialism.  Some people vote accordingly.I———————–That “we are a 2-Party system” is a fabrication of the Republican/Democratic duopoly and spread by MSM.  In FACT the majority of voters aren’t either registered Democratic or Republican.  The censorship about this info must be envied by bureaucrats of the Former USSR and their simplistic style of 1-Party elections.
