Privatization of some crucial resources such a public health, food, and a healthy environment feels like a step toward total servitude of the public for the benefit of private players. Government is the best way to ensure control by We The People, if We The People remain involved and interested. In other words, governance of, for and by The People.—

The Build Public Renewables Act (BPRA), now New York State law, empowers and directs the state’s public power provider—the New York Power Authority (NYPA)—to plan, build, and operate renewable energy projects across New York State. Organizers are now focusing on growing the movement for Public Power from coast to coast.

Privatization sounds good but works differently.—-
https://popularresistance.org/gathering-for-indigenous-water-justice-and-global-collaboration/ – For centuries, the theft of Indigenous waters gave rise to water colonialism and systemic inequities situating prominent colonial and Western water entities that now hold vast wealth, power, and resources (Robison et al, 2018; Sanchez et al, 2020). Today, they control the global dialogue around water policy, solutions, and decision-making while purporting to represent ‘all people,’ ignoring the history of water colonialism. In part, this has prompted many Indigenous Peoples and youth to launch Indigenous water justice movements for self-determination and to end water colonialism. Examples include the Kyoto Water Declaration, the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and #NODAPL.

Some people see Cop City in Atlanta as the epitome of authoritarian terror.—-
LAST WEEK, AS Atlanta was absorbing yet another piece of bad news about its snakebit proposal for a new police and fire training facility — that it would cost the public twice as much as had been discussed — MSNBC host Chris Hayes said what much of the national audience must be thinking.
“I have to say, I’ve followed this story from afar and only moderately closely, but I remain mystified why Atlanta officials are just so so SO intent on building this thing,” he tweeted.

One wouldn’t see a problem in the nation of Saudi Arabia interacting with the nation of the USA and the nation of Russia at the same time. What one calls attention to is the following—
*Human rights violations by Saudi Arabian oligarchs including implications in the 9/11 attack on NYC
*Ongoing relationship between Saudi Arabian oligarchy with US oligarchy through these events
*Current US oligarchical business dealings while in positions of leadership in the US government, with oligarchs in SA
*A Proxy War by the US against Russia in Ukraine
*Considering unaccountable transfer of cash from the US taxpayer to the war machine in Ukraine that is unavoidably controlled by Ukrainian oligarchs.
*US sports oligarchs joining forces with Saudi sports oligarchs in a way that is an embarrassment against We The People
*Pretense that to support the Proxy War in Ukraine supports democracy, also it seems FACTual that it does support “Western Values”
First a warning that “Russia is our enemy” and we need to beware of reading info that MSM tends to censor out of the notice of the US public. But ultimately it is beneficial to We The People to be informed.—-

A principle in free markets is negotiation of price between buyer and seller. Capitalism has been sold to the gullible as free market principles when it appears to run in thoroughly authoritarian process. Should we question capitalism as “our system”
https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/merck-sues-us-government-halt-medicare-drug-price-negotiation-2023-06-06/ – NEW YORK, June 6 (Reuters) – Merck & Co (MRK.N) sued the U.S. government on Tuesday, seeking to halt the Medicare drug price negotiation program contained in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which it argues violates the Fifth and First Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

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—-
