The following is one example of incredibly widespread moral bankruptcy that is aside from financial.  The stock market is an indication of the general tendency to place greed over life.  Jamie Dimon seemed to lead a willing Obama (everybody does it) to reward Financial Meltdown perpetrators in 2008 when he could have chosen to uplift consumers.

CHASE BANK opens new branch downtown Springfield Ma. 3/7/23

Did you know that Chase is the worlds #1 funder of

fossil fuels. Is investor profit more important than

our future natural world and our children and grandchildren? Jamie Dimon, CEO, thinks so. He has

directed Chase to invest nearly 400 Billion in ff since

the 2015 Paris agreements.

This bank is MORALLY BANKRUPT and should not represent the values of the great city of Springfield.

Defense of protesters to Cop City is crucial in fighting Climate Change.  Inability to connect the dots is symptomatic of capitalistic indoctrination similar to that of the perpetrator bailout by the Executive Branch in 2008.  The excuse that financial institutions are “too big to fail” overlooks the same as applied to our environment.

Politicians who support Cop City have attempted to discredit forest defenders as “outside agitators.” This smear has a disgraceful history in the South, where authorities have used it against abolitionists, labor organizers, and the Civil Rights Movement, among others. The goal of those who spread this narrative is to discourage solidarity and isolate communities from each other while offering a pretext to bring in state and federal forces, who are the actual “outside agitators.” The consequence of that strategy is on full display in the tragedy of January 18.

In Atlanta and across the US, investment in police budgets comes at the expense of access to food, education, childcare, and healthcare, of affordable and stable housing, of parks and public spaces, of transit and the free movement of people, of economic stability for the many. Concentrating resources in the hands of police serves to defend the extreme accumulation of wealth and power by corporations and the very rich.–end of defendtheatlantaforest info—

The following seems to be a movement in the direction of institutional espousal of the wisdom of those pre-industrialization.—

Received from The Natural History Museum (info@thenaturalhistorymuseum.org)          —We know ouher communities, scientists, and scholars to challenge the colonial logics imprinted in practices of historic preservation, science education, and conservation—and to chart a path forward.The project kicks off with a new collection of essays that considers how the climate emergency is not just an environmental crisis, but also an epistemological crisis, demanding not only a reckoning with public policy but also with the colonial regime of knowledge that has influenced how people see and relate to the land and each other.We’re also excited to announce the Red Natural History Fellowship, a new two-year program that supports scholars and practitioners who are making change within their fields—to redress social and environmental harms, and advance a just and safe future for all life on Earth. Learn more about our inaugural cohort of Red Natural History Fellows below.This is only the start. The first red natural history event is coming up next month. Register today for “Unfence the Future: Taking Down Fortress Conservation and its Enduring Legacy“, a free virtual symposium dedicated to decolonizing federal law, historic preservation, and conservation.  For the Future,

The Natural History Museum

What if we understand natural history not simply as the study of nature, ecosystems, or premodern cultural traditions, but as a site of struggle between two incommensurate relations to the world—one governed by a logic of extraction and enclosure and another that relates to the world as a world in common that cannot be enclosed? Edited by Not An Alternative as part of the collective’s ongoing project The Natural History Museum, this dossier features texts by Indigenous historians, theorists, and ethnobotanists, as well as critical geographers, landscape architects, artists, and activists.

https://thenaturalhistorymuseum.org/events/unfence-the-future/      —While the science of fortress conservation has been widely discredited, we continue to live in its world. Where did this model come from? Where does it endure? How is it encoded in current laws, policies, and institutional practices—and more broadly, in our ways of seeing, understanding, and relating to the land? And what are activists, communities, and institutions doing to take it down?

****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!
