Parents seem deprived of the natural right to raise their own children in the manner they choose by a system that has become curiously totalitarian as applied to education.  This may set the mood for parental over reaction in self defense.  At the same time, one cannot imagine a better opportunity for parents to open discussion with their children after a topic is raised that may be uncomfortable to both.  That seems more of an opportunity for parents than a harm to children.  That our educational system seems used as a babysitting service for the convenience of commercial Establishment to promote a progress based on greed, privilege, and exploitation seems to expose a broader problem.

Expanded control by Establishment doesn’t seem to have resulted in enhanced societal safety pertaining to books any more than it has for terrorism—https://portside.org/2022-01-04/20-year-war-terror-was-amazing-success-if-you-were-terrorism—–It began more than two decades ago. On September 20, 2001, President George W. Bush declared a “war on terror” and told a joint session of Congress (and the American people) that “the course of this conflict is not known, yet its outcome is certain.” If he meant a 20-year slide to defeat in Afghanistan, a proliferation of militant groups across the Greater Middle East and Africa, and a never-ending, world-spanning war that, at a minimum, has killed about 300 times the number of people murdered in America on 9/11, then give him credit. He was absolutely right.——end of portside info—
Local-community autonomy has been disregarded in our hierarchical culture.  Perhaps ours isn’t the best system to support democracy.  Many people are using common sense to create the life that best serves local-community needs—-https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcuf-6uqj4tH9UBJHrYQwmEH6ELABtB14iR?utm_source=Friends+of+Slow+Money&utm_campaign=3cddd4e8e5-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_02_16_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_e9ca84a3ec-3cddd4e8e5-81187573&goal=0_e9ca84a3ec-3cddd4e8e5-81187573&mc_cid=3cddd4e8e5&mc_eid=a6bfff80b0 –This month’s Beetcoin Dialogue will take place on Wednesday, January 12, at 5:00 MT and features Zoë Bradbury.Zoë operates Valley Flora Farm in Langlois, Oregon with her sister and mother.

As opposed to crowdfunding platforms that host individual transactions, this is a new kind of funding system—with emphasis on the word system. Here’s how it works.–end of beetcoin info–
For we who notice the richer are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, a change in system seems logical.

Recently, our president has echoed scientists in claiming that the climate and ecological crisis is a “code red” emergency for humanity. But actions speak louder than words, and Biden is failing to follow through on his rhetoric.–end of vfp info–
Bernie Sanders was well on his way to informing the electorate about policies that could enhance life according to principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  His efforts continue in wake of a weak showing by his alternative—https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jan/04/bernie-sanders-labor-strikes  –And here is some very good news. While the corporate-owned media may not be actively reporting it, working people all over the country, with extraordinary courage and determination, are taking on corporate greed, and they are winning.The greatest weapon our opponents have is not just their unlimited wealth and power. It is their ability to create a culture that makes us feel weak and hopeless and diminishes the strength of human solidarity.And here is our new year’s resolution. Like the thousands of workers who stood up and fought courageously in 2021, we will do the same. No one individual is going to save us. We must rise up together.–end of theguardian info–

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!
Along with Climate Change, many people oppose the imperialism of the USA under control of the Republican/Democratic duopoly.  Use of the wealth of our nation should be to enhance quality of life for We The People rather than for imperialism.  Some people vote accordingly.I———————–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.
