DEMOCRACY AND FOOD
Climate Change will impact young people more than others. Irritation is heard about the planet that is handed to them that includes Climate Change. At the same time popular culture indoctrinates about availability of anything desired at one’s fingertips. This is confusing. Add to this dependence and trust in an apparent cause of Climate Change, which seems to be technology, as the means by which humanity will continue untrammeled self-indulgence, and a few questions arise about thought processes.

An example they give is the shipping of fertilizer from Canada by truck to Brazil, where it is used to grow soybeans that are fed to pigs that are then shipped to China.

Never mind end days of capitalism. As the wealth of the nation continues transference from the 100% to the 1%, this feels more nearly like end days of dictatorship.—-https://www.counterpunch.org/2022/06/22/the-feds-austerity-program-to-reduce-wages/ —
This class-war doctrine is the prime directive of neoliberal economics. It is a feature of the tunnel vision of corporate managers and the One Percent, the Federal Reserve and IMF are its most prestigious lobbyists.
The working population is not considered to be too big to fail. Its political weight is small by comparison to that of Wall Street banks and other FIRE-sector donors.–end of counterpunch info–
Consider the Preamble to the US Constitution—-We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Capitalism is a hierarchical economic theory that has nothing to do with free markets. We need to understand the language of predatory control.
****As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-
This is a reminder of how much we don’t know. This brings one around to Howie Hawkins, who continues to impress with original thought. We also could acknowledge Hawkins often speaks to censored information.
One such topic about which one would never have even considered, is whether the USA needs The Senate. Apparently The Senate is little other than expensive window dressing, promoting hierarchical interests, and too often placed in positions of power by big-money via Citizens United. But the public gets to fund this curiosity of pompous supremacy. Who knew?
The Democratic Branch of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly are especially functional in voter suppression—–https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNbdkuU1edw —#GreenSocialist Notes #76
Howie Hawkins brings up the concept of whether the USA needs the Senate. Apparently according to some people, the Senate isn’t necessary. This brings up the blockage from the Senate of many bills that would benefit We The People. Combined with Citizens United that promotes big-money interest choice of Senators, in which laws are passed that benefit big-money interest rather than We The People, and that We The People support economically, the members of the Senate, this seems a good topic for discussion.
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.

Centralization is the lifeblood of the R&D duopoly. It’s the way to enforce capitalism onto workers in 2022.
