POWER TO THE PEOPLE
Quite simply stated, Indigenous wisdom is veritable. In a conversation presented in the organicconsumer link toward the end of this story, Russell Brand offers a conversation between a FOX talking head and a down-home farmer that’s for real. To listen is time well invested. Ultimately the message as stated by said farmer is “complex systems have too many unexpected consequences”……that’s right…..

One has heard comments about “white people” that suggest the misconception that “white people” aren’t Indigenous from somewhere. A point can be made that “white people” were the original and most violently targeted group by institutionalized religion. In FACT, signs of Indigenous “white people” customs remain even in the USA and in 2022. One suspects some Eastern European Americans retain memories of family forays into forests to gather bushels of mushrooms.
If you were to wander into a Lithuanian forest today, you might see people hunched over, looking closely at the ground, perhaps with baskets tied to their backs. They are treasure hunters, seeking the delicate and decadent mushrooms that sprout up at this time of year. —-end of treehugger info—
The consequences of making a wrong guess or a misidentification about whether a mushroom is edible can be severe. What’s even more challenging is that some edible and poisonous mushrooms look quite similar.–endof treehugger info–
When searching for mushrooms in the wild, inexperienced foragers should search for mushrooms alongside an experienced and trusted mycologist.
To journey into Eastern European history untrammeled by hierarchical Establishment perspective will reveal interesting conflict between “Indigenous” and commercial ideas.

Institutionalization in government seems logical; trouble for humanity begins when government collaborates with religion or commerce. https://countercurrents.org/2022/09/at-least-31-killed-as-anti-government-protests-spread-across-iran/?swcfpc=1 —
Norway-based, Iran Human Rights Organization says that they can confirm that at least 31 protesters have been killed in the on-going anti-government, anti-hijab protest across Iran. Iran’s state-run media acknowledged on Thursday that at least 17 people have been killed in anti-hijab protests which have spread across the country. The protests have spread to more than 80 cities and towns across Iran. In Tehran and some Kurdish cities, protesters torched police stations and vehicles on Thursday as public outrage over the death of Mahsa Amini showed no signs of easing, with reports of security forces coming under attack.
Presumption that corruption is the calling card for “white people” may be a hierarchical Establishment red herring. –https://popularresistance.org/a-land-deal-benefiting-a-billionaires-soccer-team-is-muscled-through-despite-objections/ –Chicago, Illinois – Citing years of broken promises to build affordable homes, a Chicago City Council committee rejected a plan to lease public housing land to a professional soccer team owned by a billionaire ally of Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
That was on Tuesday. Less than a day later, allies of the mayor called a do-over and reversed the vote.

Executive Branch office holders are a testament that corruption is color blind.

$11 Million Per Minute! — Sep 22, 2022 The world’s governments subsidize the fossil fuel industry with a mind-blowing amount of money. Lee Camp reports on an IMF study from 2021 that found that Big Oil receives $11 million per minute in subsidies. In other words, we’re all paying for ExxonMobil, Shell, British Petroleum, and their peers to continue doing business by polluting the land, water and atmosphere.

C-Span hosted a call-in at 7:00AM on the topic of policing in the USA along with support for or de-funding of police. Who wouldn’t wish for local law enforcement that are serving and protecting? On the other hand few people wish for robo-cops on their corner.
Why do police arrest jay walkers but not white-collar criminals? Isn’t that rather obvious of a 2-tier justice system? The difference may be lack of arms in white-collar crime, except for availability to high-paid lawyers. Reports suggest the joke may be on high-paid lawyers, as one hears rumors that they also get filched by some white-collar criminals. Co-dependence isn’t just for substance abuse, one supposes.
****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—-
