A call-in topic his morning was asking the question of the definition of “woke”.
Another related topic heard recently is insinuation of wokeness into the Pentagon. Understanding the draw of power and money, an apt question is whether wokeness will change the Pentagon or whether the Pentagon will change wokeness. Understanding use of power or money against ideology…and that said use is corruption….we can predict the end.
9:10AM–caller–paraphrase–Read between the lines on the topic of woke.
9:10AM–caller–paraphrase–It is time we had a woman on our money … (Is it really?)
In other words, should we embrace the same system that has exploited throughout history. Who is it, as women, we intend to exploit in our place?
And coincidentally a woman is the shooter in another school shooting. Somehow it’s the system that must change. Many attributes of women are under appreciated and probably that which we need more of.
Meanwhile in capitalistic hierarchical society, rewards go to hyper-masculine-displaying attributes.
Media advertising and rhetorical space is purchased sometimes by those with the least in message. The type of message may not reflect truth as it articulates FACT. An example, since the Pentagon is on one’s mind, is an interview on a left-leaning MSM station with a Vietnam-era bureaucrat. This “military leader” shared the FACT that during the Vietnam War many young men volunteered. Here’s the truth. —
*AT the age of 18 all young men wee required to register for the draft
*If one was drafted the army was one’s destination
*If one enlisted one could choose the army, navy air force, or marines
*The army offered the highest opportunity of becoming a casualty, or at least ending up wading through the swamps in Southeast Asia
*Therefore 18-year-olds often enlisted in self defense
The ability for those in power to slant the message are high. The money available to buy collaboration as truth, AKA their FACTS, is higher.
This may be seen as a type of meritocracy that has been upheld as a portion of our system, which of course it is. We may wish to discuss these topics, along with an honest evaluation of ourselves.
The recent bank bailout of wealthy depositors over the FDIC limit is typical of our transfer of wealth from the 100% to the 1%. Regulations are important because everyone has their price. Presumptions to the contrary may be intellectually dishonest.https://www.c-span.org/video/?526807-6/washington-journal-william-isaac-discusses-role-fdic-governments-role-protect-bank-deposits&live –MARCH 27, 2023 | PART OF WASHINGTON JOURNAL 03/27/2023
William Isaac on FDIC and Government’s Role to Protect Bank Deposits
Former FDIC Chair William Isaac talked about the federal government’s role in the SVB and Signature Bank crisis and the level of responsibility government has in protecting bank deposits.–end of c-span info—
We could prioritize We The People rather than capitalistic 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—–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 —

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!
