Too often freedom for one person comes at the liability of another. Socialism could be a label to suggest balancing away from exploitation of this type, if it must be labeled. Another phrase could be respect for natural, human, and civil rights. Either way, everyone should have a voice in defining freedom, not only the hierarchy.
One’s interest in freedom for women is founded upon respect for natural and human rights. Both are experiencing expanding violations from a hierarchy that itself seems to require a personal freedom that drains the same from others. For women and girls to expand freedom, safety in public places is necessary. To simply walk out into nature can be an act of bravery. Without the ability to walk out into nature, women and girls are denied a most natural freedom and an opportunity to occupy a sacred space for girls and women. To be unable to experience safely such a natural and healthy freedom is an oddity of hierarchical patriarchy.

C-Span hosted a call-in discussion about interest in a DeSantis-Presidential run in 2024. Many Floridians spoke of the freedom of Florida while others spoke of a deteriorating environment, loss of wildlife, and dire straits of people who are not economically-fortunately positioned. Someone spoke of Federal bail-out of Florida as storms promoted by Climate Change and precipitated by said capitalistic hierarchical freedom, is assumed by Florida leadership.
In other words the freedom for hierarchical characters at the expense of others seems to be taken for granted.
This raises an idea that Florida may mimic pre-Revolutionary Cuba. Some reports suggest that a high literacy rate is accompanied by censorship, but this is indicative of communism in the same way it is indicative of capitalism. We must see the turpitude of comparing one nation against another, when the topic should be thehuman lifestylevalue, such as freedom unencumbered by Establishment mores.
One offers once more a discussion by Green Party’s Howie Hawkins, on the topic of the Ukraine-Russia War. The Green Party seems able to have a discussion aside from rote sound bites, on this war. We need honest discussion. At the bottom, the conversation seems to be, which came first, US imperialism or Russian imperialism. To see the local communities of Ukraine as anything other than imperialism seem admitted by one and all. That so-called leaders warn local-community members that it is their lot to sacrifice life, liberty, and comfort for “the greater good” which may be a euphemism for “the benefit of hierarchy”, is what should be in question. In other words, the “which came first, the chicken or the egg” discussion is a deflection.
There is little reason to mire ourselves in this discussion, while ignoring imperialism as a call to patriotism. While we decry the censorship of Cuba, isn’t this also a type of censorship?

****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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ7kn2-GEmM —

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 www.debates.org 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!
