Is it a dictatorship, when transparency to the public is challenged and laws are enacted to benefit the elite while the majority of the public are used to that end?

C-Span held a conversation this morning about reported poor mental health of American children.  Some of the discussion turned to social media, and particularly the ubiquitous use of cell phones by children.  A few thoughts—-

*Cell phone dependence seems to be an unwelcome new normal for adults, much less children, who really don’t need cell phones

*Cell phone use by children may be a type of babysitting service for preoccupied parents

*Corporate American can non-stop advertise over said devises, to ostensibly-captive audiences, creating a consumer culture that may be unhealthy to humanity

*A government that has entrenched parents into a system of ongoing near-catastrophe reality leaves little time or energy for parents to parent

*Many parents in some families need both Mom and Dad, Mom and Mom, or Dad and Dad working jobs to pay bills, including absurd cell phone fees, and many work more than one job to meet inflicted obligations

*This isn’t freedom, and seems a type of systematic servitude.

*The work of government should be to enhance the lives of the public, rather than to manacle the public to corporate and governmental obligations

We are generally aware that Exxon Mobile understood the harm that would result from use of their product, to the environment and humanity  –    —

It’s also shrouded in secrecy.

First the nation is de-constructed, then investment companies step in to re-construct the nation, using US taxpayer funding, in one view—-    –So BlackRock has done a deal with Zelensky to “reconstruct” Ukraine. But don’t think for a minute that there’s any conspiracy to be found in an American tax payer funded war benefiting a multi-trillion dollar investment company – because you know what that would make you…

Imperialism is sold as “protecting American interests overseas”.  Consider this may be incorrect.            –BlackRock Financial Markets Advisory and the Ukrainian Ministry of Economy signed a memorandum of understanding in November. According to President Zelensky’s official website: “In accordance with the preliminary agreements struck earlier this year between the Head of State and Larry Fink, the BlackRock team has been working for several months on a project to advise the Ukrainian government on how to structure the country’s reconstruction funds.

Volodymyr Zelensky and Larry Fink agreed to focus in the near term on coordinating the efforts of all potential investors and participants in the reconstruction of our country, channeling investment into the most relevant and impactful sectors of the Ukrainian economy.

The stage was set for BlackRock by the IMF back in 2013 with a deal to “integrate” Ukraine into the European Union, to facilitate greater control and ownership over Ukraine’s resources. In fact, this desire led to the ousting of former President Viktor Yanukovych during the 2014 coup.

The American worker is being sold out by politicians placed into office via Citizens United, which protects big-money interests buying lawmakers during elections.   Yet we don’t find talking heads questioning Citizens United which may be considered the foundation of the corruption in the government of the USA.  — –Today,[Jan. 9] the City Council will hold a hearing on a proposal that would break the compact. The proposal to amend the city’s administrative code would legalize degradation of retiree health benefits and permit negotiations about active employee benefits that may diminish coverage.

Are we feeling freedom yet?

****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.       —

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!
