The fascinating reality of abuse is that after the perpetrator has indoctrinated the target into acceptance, the abuser no longer needs to commit abuse while the target carries on the persona alone. Another perspective is that we can each be our own worst enemy. And that may be the reason the characters displaying as leaders gain power. Fascinating is the FACT of a 2020 Presidential campaign in which candidates elected into power had not touched upon the topic of rights of a woman to control her own body. Allegations brought by women about harassment, in FACT, were ignored. So in 2022 we shouldn’t be surprised at the lip service from said leaders, with absolutely no action to protect intrinsic rights of women.
A similarly nonsensical acceptance of the unacceptable is found in many issues.

Humanity is often complicit in their own abuse, apparently due to complexity of emotional incoherence, one imagines. In contrast, other sentient beings are not so complicit, but no less effected by abuse. Maybe we should address abuse as a negative action? — https://www.treehugger.com/4000-beagles-rescued-massive-breeding-facility-5546908?utm_campaign=treehugger&utm_medium=email&utm_source=cn_nl&utm_content=28383727&utm_term= –About 4,000 beagles are being released from a huge breeding facility in Virginia that supplies dogs for research.1 The beagles will be sent to shelters and rescue groups –end of treehugger info–
Has anyone noticed that those working toward the liberation of other sentient beings seem less imprisoned in the perpetrator/target prison of permission of abuse and self-abuse?
Patriarchy is becoming disturbingly transparent in exploitation for profit in the end days of “running government like a business” .

Both Trump and Biden seem unfazed by low poll approval numbers from the US public. Unconcern over public opinion by leaders feels suggestive of dictatorship.

Commondreams brings up several points of interest that suggest reasons history is vital to understand ourselves. The topic of restricting travel for women is laughable even by standards of medieval patriarchy. Mention of a “Trojan horse” in the Marco Rubio story brings up several thoughts—–
*Coincidentally reading the Greek Tragedies by Euripides, reminds again about the role of misogyny in society in 2022
*Biblical Fathers, if one read the books from ancient thinkers from the Bible, drew much from ideas and mores from ancient Greek thinkers
*These reminders are triggered by the Trojan horse referral
*Patriarchy colludes with institutionalized religion and rears its disturbing head in the politics of 2022
*To paint everything with the broad brush of “pro-family” insinuation is disturbing to those who recognize institutionalized religious language
*Questions have been raised by the general public about the reason the January 6 dust up is alluded to as White Supremacy, when a leader is Cuban (one brings this up because Marco Rubio has self defined as having a Cuban background, apparently relevant to him)
The tangle about white supremacy and Cuba has been dealt with, but bears repeating-—-Another string of coincidences are interesting—-
*C-Span–9:40AM–caller–(paraphrase)–How can white supremacy be charged in the January 6th dust-up when a leader of the Proud Boys is Cuban.
Great question. Knowing nothing about the Proud Boys, one has an interest in Cuba. Here’s one’s view—-
*Capitalist USA business had infiltrated Cuba pre-revolution, in particular in the business of gambling
*Some Cubans profited greatly from this hierarchical capitalistic system
*Most Cubans didn’t benefit from said crime and money
*Castro’s Cuban Revolution is labeled as communistic takeover by capitalists
*US capitalists and their Cuban hierarchy fled to the US mainland
*The USA is infamous for embracing capitalists
*In Cuba, although the carrying of guns in public is probably frowned upon by government, some of the public have benefited from the recompense of universal health care and a higher literacy rate than in the USA, and also a cleaner environment
*Possibly that a leader of the Proud Boys is a hero in white supremacy that is increasing in the USA, suggest that white supremacy is indeed a state of mind
*Another peculiarity of white supremacy is the ease by which its principles are used ubiquitously by hierarchy to achieve the end of patriarchy—-https://moguldom.com/298458/cornel-west-takes-off-on-jim-clyburn-for-being-owned-and-pimped-by-big-pharma-industry/

NYS Governor Kathy Hochul has announced pleasure over tax revenues from “the gaming industry”.
One understands the nostril-flaring excitement over tax revenues. Can we at the same time have reservations over influence wielded from an industry that was kicked out of Cuba due to national security interests?
https://www.smithsonianmag.com/travel/mob-havana-cuba-culture-music-book-tj-english-cultural-travel-180960610/ —They weren’t directly linked. Castro was produced by many social conditions that existed in Cuba. But I think the mob became a symbol for the revolution of exploitation by outside forces, particularly the United States.

One is as negatively positioned toward both capitalism and communism. This is a reason to understand the similarities seem important.
These personal notions can be totally bogus, and to hear reasons for mistakes are welcome and invited. The point is to think for oneself.

Imperialism is sold as “speading democracy around the world” which is yet to be a reality, even in the USA. That which adds to Climate Change is not democracy, considering the effects on most people.
From wecaninternational — https://www.wecaninternational.org/ —Hand-in-hand with collaborating with communities on the ground to uplift women’s leadership, build grassroots solutions, and advance climate justice, we are also working to dismantle the systems that lie at the root of rights violations and the climate crisis. The fight to end violence against women and violence against the land are interconnected, and we will continue to fight until the rights of women and gender-diverse people are protected, and until our communities and planet are thriving.

****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.
