We need to remember reality, especially on the meaning of capital.  Here are a few topics toward that end.

Remember that infinite growth using finite resources isn’t reality.      —

Brian Czech – Degrowth Toward a Steady-State Economy – CACOR series

Our speaker today is Dr. Brian Czech, executive director of the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy. From 1999-2017, he served in the headquarters of the US Fish & Wildlife Service. During most of that time (2001-2015), he was also a visiting professor at Virginia Tech. He has written three books, including Supply Shock: Economic Growth at the Crossroads and the Steady State Solution. He is a regular contributor at the Steady State Herald. Today he will define & describe degrowth & the steady state economy as the sustainable solution to our overshoot of planetary limits. Some over-developed countries will need a reasonable period of degrowth toward a steady state economy. Countries with widespread poverty should be encouraged & assisted to develop in peace & security, free of the forced debt & environmental destruction of corporate exploitation. In other words, moving away from unsustainable, destructive growth will require a tremendous level of “steady statesmanship” in international diplomacy—the greatest challenge of the 21st century.

The artificial economy built on symbols such as the dollar, rather than actual reality, promotes a use of humanity in the exploiting system as surely as it uses natural resources.     —

Corporate Food Giants Have Abandoned Indianapolis’ Northeast Corridor. In Their Stead, A Movement For Food Sovereignty Is Seeing Progress.

In Indianapolis’ Northeast Corridor, a predominantly Black area with a growing Latinx population, more than half of residents live in a food desert.

“Of the 83 stores selling food in our area, only 11 sell fresh vegetables. More than half are convenience stores,” said Ashley Gurvitz, executive director of the United Northeast Community Development Corporation (UNEC), which submitted the winning proposal on behalf of NEC residents. The area has seen grocery store chains come and go for decades — or outright refuse to enter.—end of popularresistance info–

The pro-growth economy uses the symbol of the dollar to the extent that currently, when one hears discussion about the economy, one’s mind goes to the stock market rather than to the economy of local communities.  This is the smokescreen of money exchangers who are the middlemen gathering monetary wealth at the expense of people and nature.  De-growth seems to work within the actual economy of nature and people, leveling the playing field back to the integrity of nature rather than the strained presumption of business practice.

Hierarchical Establishment censors FACTS away from the public to capture symbols of value in the illusion of money.  This system is inflicted upon the public when costs of living such as taxes, food, and energy, expect payment in the illusion of the dollar.  And so the compliance by the public is secured.  The cost is humanity and nature.  Because the dollar is no longer used as a symbol but rather as reality, the cost devolves onto humanity and nature, which are being drained of substance.

One believes CASSE as discussed by Brian Czech offers a realistic and workable concept for righting this anomaly.

Meanwhile, let’s consider FACTS.—-   —

Is it possible that corporate-owned-politically-controlled MSM is misinforming the public?—-   –The United States and Western media outlets have long demonized Nicaragua’s Sandinista government and its President Daniel Ortega, sponsoring violent coup attempts against him and imposing illegal unilateral sanctions aimed at hurting the Central American nation’s economy.

But studies show that the Sandinista Front is very popular among the Nicaraguan people, who enjoy a high quality of life compared to their neighbors.–end of mronline ifo–

****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.       —

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 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!
