ENTITLEMENT vs EARNED BENEFIT
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.–

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.”
