Breathtaking is any presumption that attack on nature can be perpetrated without an accompanying attack on humanity.  This is emblematic of hierarchical Establishment indoctrination that has urged humanity to identify with corporations rather than nature.    –Today, humanity is at risk because of senseless social inequality, attacks on the environment, and an unsustainable consumption pattern in rich countries that is imposed on us by capitalism and its profit-seeking mentality.

Good grief, humanity has gone so far down the rabbit hole of identification with artificial legislatively-constructed entities as to have let go unmentioned, a statement from Jared Kushner (paraphrase) that US citizens were customers of the government.   –According to The Washington Post, Trump has placed Jared Kushner in charge of the newly-created White House Office of American Innovation, which will work with private companies to improve the country. In an interview Sunday, Kushner told The Washington Post that he thought “the government should be run like a great American company,” and should “achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens.” But while that might sound impressive, the fact that Jared Kushner thinks American citizens are customers is actually pretty problematic.

And while Kushner might think it’s complementary to consider citizens to be the country’s customers — implying that meeting their needs is the priority — he seems to be forgetting that, in a democracy, citizens are actually supposed to be the owners.–end of romper info–

Some people view ownership as a hierarchical concept, anyway, and out of sync with a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  

This feels like a perverted interpretation considering human rights and environmental rights.

On the topic of an economy that functions in a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic, Establishment seems to have superimposed capitalism over free market principles.  Reasons supporting this view—

*Trade agreements promoted by politicians bought into positions of power byway of Citizens United have sent jobs and manufacturing to foreign nations

*Family income has been reduced dramatically due to trade agreements

*Said trade agreements have included language that prioritizes interests of multi-national corporations over local-community human rights and rights of nature

*When manufacturing is predominantly foreign, US consumers are at the mercy of foreign nations and a questionable supply chain

*The Trump tariff was imposed when tariffs are traditionally used to balance import/export ratios to ensure money isn’t flowing out of the US but instead is flowing into the US

*To impose a tariff on imports when manufacturing has been legislatively forced to foreign nations is predatory toward US consumers and supports inflation

*Previous to current Pyramid-Scheme economics, sole-proprietorship business which is the core of free markets, were undermined legislatively in favor of corporate chains

*Recently sole props have used the internet to purchase low-cost products from overseas in order to maintain local-community store fronts

*The Trump tariff short-circuited this ability for sole props to so participate in such global free market activity because a sole prop is taxed personally to the owner and so imposes the tariff directly upon said sole proprietor, while corporations are legislatively taxed more favorably to their business interest

*And so precision predatory behavior toward We The People by corporate/politician collaboration is US economic policy

These are reasons that indoctrination of the US public that capitalism is democracy and free markets, needs to be discussed, made clear to a somnolent public, and explained by bureaucrats who have justified the Trump tariff by calling it a geopolitical advantage without specifying the beneficiary, who may be the ‘splainer.  Recently many of the ‘splainers and lawmakers are also the retailers and profiteers.

Add to this a predatory health care system that profits from disease rather than wellness, and that we don’t have a 1-payer comprehensive public health care system seems nearly criminal, considering the direct impact on the health of people in the USA.  This style of health care providing is inefficient, selective, and expensive due to middlemen.

Some people support a socialism that is most nearly a free market when it is unencumbered by communist or capitalist control or hierarchy.   –Streamed live 20 hours agoThis week Howie will talk about the 2022 Midterm Elections and what they mean for the Green Socialist movement, current events, and take viewer questions.

Howie Hawkins speaks once again about ranked-choice voting that may be the single biggest step toward fair and free elections outside of the tentacles of Democratic/Republican duopoly control.

On the topic of free markets and inflation, those who were paying attention could see corporate actions that set the stage for predatory assault on consumers and the current inflation, long before they became reality.  Politicians ignored questions in compliance, one must assume, with their big-money campaign donors.  Politicians were surely not acting in the interests of the public.

One example among many, is keeping artificially low, interest rates, in order to drive the savings of people into the riskier stock market (AKA corporations), rather than into interest-bearing accounts.  With respectable interest rates in safer savings accounts, money could be placed in, for example, credit unions that lend to sole proprietors who are typically local, and so grow a local healthy economy.

We need to be aware of these boring realities more than we are interested in the excitement-generating corporate ads to purchase their products.  We are too easily distracted by shiny objects.

****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!
