Transparency seems important if people are to have the ability to understand the complexity on topics our politicians make decisions about, for the US public.  RT has been censored out of the US media line-up.  As one who believes one receives propaganda via RT, one also recognizes the propaganda is no more nor less than received byway of CNN, MSNBC, or FOX.  This is the reason diversity in news sources is important, along with individuals who are aware enough to compare and investigate upon one’s own.

e has a very interesting and complex history and culture, but most Americans see them as “communists”.  Here’s a peak behind the curtain.—https://www.rt.com/russia/568614-war-and-churches-in-ukraine/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=push_notifications&utm_campaign=push_notifications —

War of the churches: How Ukraine has become unsafe for millions of Orthodox believers

–end of rt info–

Religion is an important influence around the globe.  While the USA has a system of governance that has veered into capitalism which is about the dollar, simmering underneath is institutionalized religion.  NATO seems to make decisions for other nations that seem based upon capitalistic principles, To overlook historical and religious realities of the nations targeted for NATO tailoring may be a mistake.
On the topic of institutionalized religion, one wonders whether anyone can seriously hold the view that politics aren’t involved.  Reasons for this view follow–**Jesus was a Jew**The Gospels seem to have been written afterward for a gentile consumer**Those who spoke the language of Jesus were not the target audience**Translation seemed first to be into Greek, then into Latin, then into other languages

Relating to the complexity of humanity, Orthodox religion seems to be pre-Roman interpretation.  and the entirety seems to have political implications.  At the point of politics it seems self-interest is interjected; and in particular based on money.

A reason one loves NYS and in particular the Southern Tier is the interspersing among buildings to be the gold domes of Orthodox churches.  

This raises questions about support “for Ukrainians” when religion may be a source of tension in Ukraine.  This is beyond the scope of my understanding, but it seems to ask valid questions.

The other side of this coin is presuming the actions of NATO are only about “spreading democracy around the world” when it may include uplifting capitalism. Can there be any honest discussion without touching upon greed and corruption?

This opens space for another topic that is associated with bait-and-switch, and one can label it as socialism.  One would be intellectually dishonest not to admit that the USA has a system of corporate socialism and Pentagon socialism.  But when We The People wish inclusion into a socialism that would provide fairness in our system, some people are aghast.

At this point the topic of free markets is brought up as being the same as capitalism, when the two concepts are different.

One is interested in a democratic socialism for America.  This to me means the following—

**The harder one works toward accumulating cash on a personal level, both intention and cash should be secure to the individual

**People who choose rather to invest less time earning and accumulating cash, should be free to do so

**Each should be responsible for earning their place in a community, which implies work that earns one’s way

**Those with a propensity to accumulate cash to enhance personal lifestyle should be free to do so

**Those who choose to accumulate cash sufficient to cover expenses should be free to do so without disrespect

**It seems that at some point those with an abundance of cash notice that the system can be ratcheted in their favor, using cash, to permit less of personal energy invested or more of cash to be gained by rigging

**This is where exploitation begins toward other people or the environment.  

**For example, Citizens United seems to be the organized system of policies and laws based upon big-money campaign contributions to buy politicians

to pass laws that enhance this corruption when government should be the foundation to avoid corruption

War seems to be the system of corruption out of control and unacknowledged while using concepts of “spreading democracy” at the cost and harm of local communities while obscene profiteering continues among the elite who are never actually annoyed by the messy reality of war.  

And so NATO may wish to explain their positions in these issues.

Lee Camp & Margaret Kimberly: The Empire Controls The Narrative

–end of leecamp info–

****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       —

Ross Perot in 1992 on NAFTA and the “Giant Sucking Sound”

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!
