Along with understanding the dereliction of presuming capitalism is commiserate with our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic, we can also strive toward a type of Utopia that needn’t be labeled as socialistic or Marxist, but can use ideas that aren’t predicated upon greed and privilege.  What if we started with our cities?—     –Writing in Yale 360, Jim Robbins explains why the luster on once-vaunted smart cities is fading and looks at some of the smart city proposals on the boards and in the dumpster. He quotes Boyd Cohen, a professor and climate strategist at EADA business school in Barcelona, about what has to come first:

Refreshing would be to support principles of a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic without predictable labeling of such a more perfect union as either of Marxism or socialism.  Equally uncomfortable is denigration at attempts for Utopia, which surely would be hard-won but deserving of a try.  One brings this up in response to once again listening to a pro-capitalist intimate that capitalism and Christianity are connected.  While that may or may not be the case, we aren’t a theocracy, to be simply FACTual.  And by the way, we also aren’t a capitalist nation by Constitution.  We also needn’t be either of socialistic or Marxist to attempt attainment of a better governance, but we might follow principles of our Constitution without capitalistic Establishment ‘splaining away human and environmental rights     — JANUARY 17, 2022 | PART OF WASHINGTON JOURNAL 01/17/2022

Star Parker on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Race in America

Star Parker, columnist and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, talked about Martin Luther King Jr. Day and race in America.–end of c-span info–
A question could be asked about connection of theocracy with a commercial financial policy in the USA, and insinuating the US military into this presumption as pertains to foreign policy.  Such confusion in perception inflicted onto foreign nations that have intricate history in consideration of, for example Nazism, can be similar to throwing a grenade into a crowded room.  Beneficial would be to be more clear and self-informed about such matters, and the harm that can be inflicted—–   –Nothing in the article indicates that while “controlled” may be a stretch, the Ukrainian government officially honors Nazi collaborators. That doesn’t mean Russia has the right attack Ukraine, but US media should inform Americans about whom their tax dollars are arming.In the same period, the Post ran 201 pieces that mention the word “Ukraine.” Of these, six mention the word “Nazi,” none of them to point out that the Ukrainian state has venerated Holocaust participants, or that there are Nazis in the Ukrainian military. Max Boot (1/5/22) and Robyn Dixon (12/11/21), in fact, dismissed this fact as mere Russian propaganda. In Boot’s earlier Ukraine piece (12/15/21), he acknowledged that the UPA collaborated with the Nazis and killed thousands of Polish people, but his article nevertheless suggested that the UPA offer a useful model for how Ukrainians could resist a Russian invasion, asserting that “all is not lost” in case of a Russian invasion, because “Ukrainian patriots could fight as guerrillas against Russian occupiers”:

The US common-core style of education gives a muddied view of US history, with little to no information of the history of foreign nations.   The growing movement of Nazism in the USA seems to dull the senses to the sensitivity of foreign nations that may have endured the full brunt of the military actions of WWII.  But then how does one blunt the awareness of those who aren’t even minimally informed?
In FACT a past President, on his trip to visit a concentration camp in Poland, referred to the atrocities committed by Poles, ignoring or never understanding that so many Poles also died in said camps under occupation of Nazi’s.
One can’t have a working knowledge of all of history in all nations, but greed and privilege and the chase after money placed before a working understanding of that which they are dealing with pertaining to history, is very unhealthy.
Some media spokespeople say that Russia is an oligarchy which may or may not be the FACT.  But this doesn’t mean that other nations are not also oligarchies, the USA included.  If war is to be parsed around, the real motives should be stated.
The public should have a say as to whether the motivation of the actors are worthy of military action or support.  Perhaps Congress could have an open debate and then issue a proclamation, which seems to be their responsibility.
If we can’t understand others, the problem is serious— lose over 20 million people during WWII may be a factor about Nazism.
Could the USA gather more veracity by addressing expansion of Nazism rather than a calling out to those who do?

Establishment squelched the voices of supporters of Bernie Sanders pertaining to the vote in 2020, but the integrity of the movement carries on—-  –Reclaim, meanwhile, is investing time and energy in training organizers and engaging with communities to build support for progressive policies.–end of portside info–Political Party suppression by other political Parties is voter suppression.    –Is seeking an explanation for life’s deepest mysteries a worthy pursuit? Many scientists and theologians would say yes. Zen Buddhists practising in China from the 9th to 13th centuries CE, however, believed that it was important to embrace uncertainty instead of always seeking answers.–end of riddles 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 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.
