Somehow it feels like corruption when activists are charged under RICO laws, while corporate so-called accident risk is nationalized and profits are privatized.  

Some people suspect capitalism on a continuum becomes organized crime.     —

Atlanta, Georgia – Community organizations involved in the ongoing campaign to defend the South River Forest outside Atlanta, Georgia and ‘Stop Cop City’ say state prosecutors are planning on releasing indictments in the coming weeks charging them as a “criminal organization” under RICO statutes.–end of popularresistance info–

C-Span today is informative as ever.  At about 10:10AM Rashida Tlaib spoke for a few minutes—–

Tlaib–paraphrase–Energy consumers plugged into DTE have experienced a grid outage for 7 days due to weather, as DTE uses profits for shareholders and high-priced corporate salaries rather than equipment upgrades.

Tlaib–paraphrase–Palestine, Ohio railroad contamination waste was shipped to her district, resulting in protest from Tlaib constituents.

Calls for FEMA assistance in the Palestine, Ohio train derailment raises questions about nationalizing of risk from corporations while privatizing profits.  

Tlaib seems to raise this question as regards to her district.

Another topic on C-Span was about forgiving of student debt.  Several thoughts—


*Consistency and The Founders established availability of bankruptcy for those unable or unwilling to pay debt

*Bankruptcy is a transparent process that gives those in debt a second chance while publicly proclaiming their situation and availing debtors of a breathing space to re-establish credibility

*Student debt that can avail of bankruptcy would put the onus upon lending institutions and educational institutions that profit from college debt, rather than upon the public

*Bankruptcy is equally available to all debtors, not those chosen for relief by Establishment.

The student debt dilemma seems to be nationalization of risk and privatization of profit.

Some of the public are aware of a simmering public/private predatory stalking by big-money interests of human resources (people) and natural resources (environment) that may contribute to the much-reported poor mental health of citizens in the USA.  

Mr. Hang reminds fractivists that we must remain “super vigilant”.  Hyper vigilance is a characteristic of people who have been traumatized, such as PTSD experiencers (sic).

Do we have the vision and courage for change?—

From MRonline  –     —

It should be noted that degrowth is not a zero-sum game where those in the Global North would be “worse off” than before. In fact, life would be much better for the global majority, whether you live in the United States or Ecuador. While it can’t be denied that degrowth would allow us to avert ecological breakdown, the types of policies and provisioning systems at the heart of the degrowth program would put a special emphasis on wellbeing and sustainability in all countries. In a degrowth transition, as opposed to the “grow or die” ethos of modern economics, all people would have access to life’s necessities: healthcare, education, housing, energy, internet—what some call a “social guarantee.”17 Moreover, people would work less and have more free time to enjoy friends, family, and nature; people would buy less consumer goods since these items would have repair mandates; people’s health would improve due to less pollution from fossil fuels and more plant-based diets as well. There is a bevy of research demonstrating how we can collectively live better lives than we do now while reducing our use of energy and materials.18

Some people believe hierarchical Establishment are quite aware of the control-abilities of keeping humanity on gerbil wheels of fear, despair, and activity to the end of generating profits for said hierarchical Establishment.         —

****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!
