C–span this morning seemed to be a litany of episodes of predatory behavior from hierarchical Establishment with the liability placed upon We The People.  This seems to be “running government like a business” which on a continuum is organized crime.

While media highlights individual occurrences of poisoning of local communities, if media must cover said stories, FACTually We The People and nature are poisoned consistently by industrialization without regulation.  Media may cherry-pick a story, the easier to pack it up and haul it off after the next disaster occurs.  But poisoning of Americans can be said to happen across the board as industry chases profits.  A portion of the profits seemed earmarked as big-money campaign contributions that buy politicians to pass laws at the behest of big business.

Environmental disaster can also be a political-campaign strategy as phrases such as environmental racism rallies the troops to vote for politicians who then turn coat and promote big-business interests.

And so we have the “Western Values” NATO is insisting is the right of Ukraine, another nation that is infamously reported to be sufficiently corrupt to accept this system.

Regulatory disregard for harm inflicted against nature and humanity does have a silver lining in its promotion of our for-profit health system that gains on disease rather than on good health.

Why should it be a problem for depositors to want their money back, if banks exist to keep people’s deposits safe and whole? This is because in reality, banks do not keep money safe, they gamble with it. In order to generate profits, banks invest the vast majority of their customers’ deposits into stocks, bonds, or other securities.–end of rt info–

Mutual insurance companies are also largely a thing of the past, in which policyholders shared in the profits of insurance companies byway of dividends.

Under Glass-Steagall, commercial banks (those that accept deposits) were prohibited from engaging in most investment banking activities, including underwriting and selling securities, and from affiliating with investment banks and other companies “engaged principally” in the trading of securities. Likewise, investment banks were barred from accepting deposits. The law gave banks one year to decide which path to take: get out of the securities business and receive the benefits of federal deposit insurance, or forgo accepting deposits and become investment banks.

Congress extended the Glass-Steagall Act in 1956 with the passage of the Bank Holding Company Act, which barred commercial banks and the companies that own them from engaging in non-banking activities, notably insurance. Lawmakers felt that banks should be walled off from the risks inherent in underwriting insurance.–end of ilsr info—

Currently, the vast majority of commodity trade in the world is based on global benchmark prices in US dollars. But the trend may change as Russia and China are looking for ways to increase trade in local currencies and cut dependence on dollars.

Last March, the LME, the world’s oldest and largest exchange for industrial metals, canceled all nickel trades for eight days after prices surged by more than 50% in a matter of hours to above $100,000 a ton. The suspension left consumers and producers without key benchmark prices and damaged the exchange’s reputation.

****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!
