Inculcation of the public into Capitalist Party/Communist Party hierarchical systems has limited democracy and local-community autonomy, and the inevitable failure of this top-down governance is being exposed.  Hierarchy continues to mouth incorrect information in last-ditch efforts to retain power.

An example was observed on C-Span this morning.           –OCTOBER 28, 2022  | PART OF WASHINGTON JOURNAL 10/28/2022

David Wasserman on Campaign 2022

One wold avoid calling it a lie, but the disingenuous answer to a caller question of “where did the idea of ranked choice voting originate” was answered by Wasserman that the Democratic activists and Republican activists promoted this voter-friendly system (paraphrase).  Intellectual honesty would have at least mentioned a long-running promotion of ranked choice voting from the Green Party.

C-Span–7:20AM–caller–paraphrase–Political candidates should originate from the working class because she/he would be aware of topics important to the majority of people.  In FACT, Howie Hawkins has been a working Teamster and with a grasp of topics vital to the majority of Americans, and a vocabulary capable of expressing to most people, his ideas. 

One suspects the qualities listed above for many Green Party representatives, are not appreciated by D&R duopoly hierarchy.  Hence the media-mania of excluding any other than R&D duopoly views.  In other words, censorship.   —

Opportunity to vote is skewed away from participation by too many Americans.  From lakotalaw——

As Election Day approaches — we’re less than two weeks away! — our Lakota Law team remains hard at work motivating Native voters in South Dakota and beyond. We’re creating a series of videos and graphics to share on social media, and we’re using targeted outreach on our channels to share polling place locations available to voters across the Oceti Sakowin.

Our recently-concluded Oceti Vote event comprised the centerpiece of this year’s grassroots Native voting effort. It drew hundreds of participants and spectators and provided an onsite registration opportunity to everyone the weekend before South Dakota’s voter registration deadline. Today, I hope you’ll read this well-written and detailed article from Stu Whitney of South Dakota News Watch, which touches on our event and underscores the political importance of Native voting in South Dakota.

Prior to the event, I spoke with Mr. Whitney at some length. We covered a broad range of topics, including the lawsuit he references — in which Lakota Law joined the Rosebud and Oglala Sioux Tribes as plaintiffs who sued the state for its failure to comply with the National Voter Registration Act. We won that suit, but we still have a long way to go until Native people feel as empowered at the polls as we should.

We have our reasons for feeling aggrieved. The history of Native disenfranchisement reaches back to the founding of the United States, extending through to the present day. And removing our agency at the voting booth is just one component in the array of methods used by both state and federal governments to marginalize our communities and silence our voices.

Despite, or perhaps because of, our legitimate trust issues and the host of barriers designed to limit our participation — which Mr. Whitney references in his article — we must forge ahead. We’ve got to reinforce the notion, person by person and community by community, that we can make a difference if we commit to showing up. So I thank you and all friends of the Lakota People’s Law Project for your continued love and support. Working together, I’m confident we can and will reach a critical mass and change the game moving forward.

Wopila tanka — my gratitude for your participation in this movement!

The unacceptable has become acceptable for too many voters, such as elections run by political Parties rather than entities without a conflict of interest.  For example, The League of Women Voters.         —“We had our chance to make incremental changes, but that time is over,” said the UNEP director. “Only a root-and-branch transformation of our economies and societies can save us.”

Headlines about this report are dire. The Guardian picks up a quote from the Key Messages memo and writes, “Climate crisis: UN finds ‘no credible pathway to 1.5C in place’.” It is a phrase that doesn’t actually appear in the report and is taken out of context from the paragraph where it is found:

“As climate impacts intensify, the Emissions Gap Report 2022 finds that the world is still falling short of the Paris climate goals, with no credible pathway to 1.5°C in place. Only an urgent system-wide transformation can avoid an accelerating climate disaster. The report looks at how to deliver this transformation, through action in the electricity supply, industry, transport and buildings sectors, and the food and financial systems.”

It is such a weird phrasing because the whole report is about laying a credible path, albeit a difficult one. Once again, we know what we have to do; what’s missing is the will. Perhaps that’s why, in a press release, Inger Andersen says it is so dire: treehugger info– —

Epic Drought Hits US, Solutions Ignored

Oct 27, 2022 Climate change is here and it’s becoming more difficult for the corporate media to avoid talking about it. But, as Lee Camp shows this week on The Most Censored News, that doesn’t mean that the elite propagandists of the ruling class won’t try their hardest to avoid the topic.  

Their problem is that any discussion of climate change leads to the conclusion that the solution is to shut down industrial capitalism, which is the primary driver of the extreme weather events and other environmental catastrophes that threaten social stability. Industrial capitalism, unfortunately, is also the source of the paychecks that keep those propagandists wealthy.–end of leecamp info–        –Oct 27, 2022 As Big Pharma pushes vaccines for children (who already have natural immunity) while driving up prices for already unaffordable life-saving drugs that people actually do need, the CDC are meeting to discuss permanent legal indemnity for Pfizer and Moderna. Nothing to worry about there then!

That Cuba has a higher literacy rate than does the USA, may be a reason some of the US public have difficulty translating writing into understanding.—–     –But under the pretext of “preventing conflicts,” “promoting stability in countries prone to widespread violence,” through the support, of “locally driven political solutions,” the language of the Act hides the legislation’s real intentions: to rebrand U.S. imperialism by using a wide range of actors and resources, including neocolonial governments and their local and regional structures, to enact policies aimed at upholding U.S. global power. The Act clearly articulates its main goal: to advance “U.S. national security and interests,” and to “manage rival powers” (that is, Russia and China).

Watch the USA use “fragility” tactics to avoid military conflict in the midst of local communities.   —-             –These are aspirational goals at best, which require sacrificing hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of Ukrainian lives, regardless of the outcome. Even worse, if they should come close to succeeding, they are likely to trigger a nuclear war, making this the all-time epitome of a “no-win predicament.”

From           —     Despite efforts by the New York State Democratic Party and their functionaries to silence us, we have broken through to the media with this campaign’s message of Inclusive Democracy, a Green New Deal, and an Economic Bill of Rights. We ask that you share this important news coverage to your community, families and allies:

The Times nails the issue: Cuomo, Hochul, and their Legislature Lackeys have brought democracy in New York to a 75-year low. And the bar was already disgracefully low.

But we can beat this and make our elections more fair and equitable than ever — with your help. We ask that you donate to this campaign today so we can continue fighting through Election Day.

And, speaking of Election Day, we ask that you take a moment to look at how you will need to write in our names for Governor and Lt. Governor, and to share this information with voters:

Instructions: Write in Howie Hawkins and Gloria Mattera. Go tothe bottom of the column on your ballot for Governor and LieutenantGovernor and write in as legibly as you can: Howie Hawkins and GloriaMattera.

****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—–          —#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.———————–We can do better———-

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 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.

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!
