How many workers wonder when their Social Security Earned Benefit for which they pay, turned into a media-defined Social Security Entitlement.  Actually the transformation was over a much shorter time frame than was, for example, the transfer of the wealth of the nation from the 100% to the 1%.

As one who over an arduous career, earned several designations by completing courses that one has come to recognize more as indoctrination into capitalism than anything else, one shares the following take–

*Financial-designation courses include overarching methods to protect the wealth of the wealthy

*Capitalism is a system, to use the phrase from Obama, in which “there will be winners and losers”

*The reason is that capitalism is hierarchical and predatory

*Within financial studies, relentless description about Social Security benefits included the phrase “earned benefits”

*The reason was that workers in the USA were quite aware of the amount of their remuneration that went to fund Social Security

*Understand that employers also contributed into the Social Security fund as an earned benefit for workers

*Corporate pressure on politicians (Citizens United) resulted in out-sourcing of US jobs to foreign nations where Social Security was not paid, resulting in dramatic reduction of funding for US workers and greater profits for corporations

*Corporation acolytes have changed the definition of Social Security earned benefits to Social Security entitlements

*Corporate/political-owned MSM has been at the forefront, regardless of lack of education on the topic, one presumes, to broadcast now, that Social Security is not an earned benefit but is an entitlement

*We should probably question such industrial educational sources as the CLU and ChFC groups, the reason for the linquistic bait-and-switch that has been a mainstay of the education to financial planners over decades

*By what authority has this fraud been perpetrated by MSM reporters who are apparently not even journalists?

*Why has the USA jailed Assange for reporting FACTS but seems quite content with such actions by Establishment?

*Is the campaign funding of Citizens United that buys politicians into positions of power corruption as seems illustrated in this opinion?

On the topic of Establishment-run MSM that changes language in compliance to hierarchy, consider the Establishment censorship of some people who practice Free Speech.–

A New Investigation Looks Into The Extent To Which U.S. Water Supplies Are Contaminated With Uranium.

Intellectual honesty of a nation could be revealed when censorship of the history of a nation against which said nation is waging a proxy war, was exchanged for informed reporting of the history of the nations involved in the proxy war.  In that spirit one offers info about Ukraine and Russia from the perspective of Russia.  A clarification, if required, from either Ukraine or the USA, is welcome.https://www.rt.com/russia/569302-russia-could-have-prevented-conflict/    –The search of the historical roots of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which culminated in Moscow’s attack last February, usually focuses on historic events. The Russian leadership has repeatedly emphasized that Ukraine expanded into historically Russian regions due to decisions taken by Soviet leaders, often contrary to the wishes of local residents. Vladimir Lenin handed over the Donbass and Nikita Khrushchev did the same with Crimea.

In light of these discussions, it’s often forgotten how red flags were apparent to many politicians even before the collapse of the USSR.

So why wasn’t the Russia-Ukraine border issue settled 30 years ago?

A resource to better understand the nations involved can be found, in one person’s opinion, in this pro-Ukrainian (self described) book—-https://www.europenowjournal.org/2022/05/04/the-gates-of-europe-a-history-of-ukraine-by-serhii-plokhy/            –Just over a year ago, the eminent historian of Ukraine, Serhii Plokhy, published a revised version of his 2015 book, The Gates of Europe. In the context of Russia’s unprovoked war against Ukraine launched in February, Plokhi’s introductory words resound even more forcefully: “Ukrainians probably have just as much right to brag about their role in changing the world as Scots and other nationalities about which books have been written asserting their claim to have shaped the course of human history.”

In one person’s view, this book reveals a repetitious foreign policy going back millennia.  This could be a topic of public debate.

https://popularresistance.org/the-trillion-dollar-silencer/      –While successful propaganda, fear and distraction are important, the military-industrial complex that Dwight Eisenhower warned about in his Farewell Address in 1961 has penetrated so deeply into American life that much of the American public has essentially bought into acquiescence.

Roelofs writes that “the economic impact of the military-industrial complex is a highly effective silencer.”

****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!
