Daniel Ellsberg seems to suggest the difficulty of speaking truth to power.      – Sam Adams Associates for Integrity honored the late Dan Ellsberg with our annual award for fearless integrity on April 11, 2023. It was clear that Dan summoned much of his remaining strength to leave an unambiguous message to people of conscience as to why they should blow the whistle on government lies, as he did, but NOW, not later.

The discussion this morning on C-Span was excellent on the topic of racism in the USA.  The guest stressed the need to work together.    Mr. Davis brought up the FACT that racism is to be tackled by all races together toward a more just society (paraphrase).         —

Daryl Davis on Combating Racism in the U.S.

Musician, author, and activist Daryl Davis discusses his efforts to combat racism in the U.S.

–end of c-span info—-

Mr. Davis spoke on the topic of the KKK.  This is a deeply complex topic that probably hasn’t been sufficiently discussed.  Mr. Davis shared a story about a Northeastern town of decades ago in which a KKK member who was a member of local law enforcement, was convicted of attempting to blow up a local Synagogue.  

One has personally heard stories from a participant, probably 55 years ago, from a KKK member lovingly known in around 1970 as Aunt ____, who in her younger days (she was at the time elderly) burned crosses on the lawns of Catholics in the Southern Tier of NYS.  

The Southern Tier of NYS has been a destination for immigrants, many of which were of the Catholic faith.  

The point is, haters gonna hate.  

The horrific-ly American story of Emmett Till was mentioned, and has been recently on C-Span due to a book that seems to have been written about this human tragedy.   The author while promoting his view, mentioned the FACT that (paraphrase) in 1950 black men didn’t wolf whistle at white women.

This is probably more than true, but it took 20 more years and the Feminist Movement before the law caught up with wolf-whistling white men.

One will continue to remind that women’s rights are human rights.  Women have the right to go out in public in peace and dignity and safety.  

This doesn’t diminish the horror perpetrated against Emmett Till.  It is only a different facet of the story.  Typically it is ignored.

I don’t know a man who I believe doesn’t want his female relatives or acquaintances the dignity of safety and peace when in public.  So what goes wrong in the application?

Why don’t men contiguous to the wolf-whistlers indicate their disapproval?  Instead, as typical, it’s incumbent upon the woman to stand up tp the unacceptable behavior.  That’s fine, but it is the work of hierarchical systems that are patriarchy.  It’s the work of bullying as self indulgence.  

C-Span hosted a discussion pertaining to We The People that was overdue.  We’re going into another Presidential campaign that will turn into celebrities, Biden and Trump.  Neither are worthy.  The background of each is self-indulgently patriarchal.

These are the reasons I sat in the road on April 24, to bring about this awareness that we have two act now, and President Biden needs to use his executive powers and declare a climate emergency.”

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!
