SELLING THE SIZZLE, NOT THE STEAK
The student-loan anomaly seems to be an example of capture of generations of the public into a requirement to support lifestyle that seems beneficial to hierarchy. If the reason for education is first to provide personal autonomy, debt is a bad start. When the debt pays for education that indoctrinates into an economic system that promotes the hierarchy that provides the education, more questions are raised. This seems to be an example of imperialism considered in an individual way, to keep it simple.
https://socialistproject.ca/2022/02/rosa-luxemburg-and-debt-imperialist-instrument/#more –Concerning the role of colonial plunder, it is worth quoting the Marx of Capital:“The discovery of gold and silver in America, the extirpation, enslavement and entombment in mines of the aboriginal population, the beginning of the conquest and looting of the East Indies, the turning of Africa into a warren for the commercial hunting of black-skins, signalised the rosy dawn of the era of capitalist production.”It is also in this chapter that Karl Marx puts forward a formula indicating the dialectical link between the oppressed in the metropolises and those in the colonies: “In fact, the veiled slavery of the wage workers in Europe needed, for its pedestal, slavery pure and simple in the new world.” He ends the chapter by saying that “capital comes dripping from head to foot, from every pore, with blood and dirt.”–end of socialistproject info–
A C-span caller of several days ago again brought up the disappearance of trade schools. An individual able to self-support has the possibility of autonomy free of encumbrance to control by hierarchy, to a certain extent; in FACT a very large extent. Ability to gain economic freedom seems crucial, byway of ability to sell a trade to the public From this base of freedom, one can go on to excel in areas of personal choice, if she/he wishes. One can also challenge and/or see more clearly whether capitalism is a burden one wishes to assume in one’s personal life. This is probably the reason trade schools are passe.
Lack of trade schools go hand-in-hand with economic globalism by which middle-class American jobs were sent overseas.

On the topic of hierarchy, one would be hard pressed to assess which is more aggressive, the USA or Russia. The Team Russia or Team USA is similar to the Democratic/Republican duopoly by which hierarchical predatory behavior is ignored while personality of each group is on display. The USA is concerned about a massive build out of Russian troops within the borders of Russia while the USA imposes blockades upon our neighbor Cuba. The USA threatens sanctions against Russia while the USA can’t get computer chips from China. Why doesn’t corporate-owned-politically influenced MSM bring up these obvious FACTS? Is this a coordinated dance of the oligarchs?
Highlight the absurdity with a laugh—-https://www.theonion.com/u-s-sends-military-advisors-to-peace-ravaged-country-1848355643 –WASHINGTON—Declaring that the current state of affairs had gone on long enough, U.S. officials announced Monday that they were sending military advisors to the peace-ravaged country of Finland. “Starting next month, we’re deploying a team of our most dedicated and belligerent officials to Finland in an effort to finally bring some war and chaos to the region,” said Secretary of State Tony Blinken, adding that the U.S. felt obligated as a global leader to ensure that countries long devastated by decades of brutal peace had the means to finally achieve war. “We have of course tried diplomatic means to end peace in this region, but so far have been unsuccessful, which is why military measures are now deemed necessary.–end of theonion info–

Some people have mentioned the absurdity of a baseball stadium in the Southern Tier that drains wealth away from the locals, when EMT and volunteer fire departments are working on nothing. –https://spectrumlocalnews.com/news/2017/02/22/binghamton-ballpark-gets–2-5-million-upgrades- –The bulk of the funding was secured from the state. Senator Fred Akshar hopes the new investments will turn the team’s poor attendance around in 2017.”We want to attract and retain young people in our community, families in our community, and we have to provide them with opportunities. Baseball is a staple of American life, and these upgrades are going to be great,” Akshar said.

Our health care system is for-profit, with politicians voted into positions of power by the public. One wonders at the voters and fealty to leaders who do not have the best interests of the public in mind, and who are owned by industrial campaign donors. When will illumination occur? Apparently being awoke isn’t enough.http://healthjusticemonitor.org/ —Summary: A health care journalist describes in detail his fight to get insulin after changing jobs. The story underscores the absurdity and dangers of our healthcare system … and how we need universal and unified coverage, like in all other wealthy countries.–end of hjm info–

It is easier to blame each other than to challenge hierarchy including our elected officials who put into place the laws under which we live—– https://towardfreedom.org/story/archives/americas/left-right-white-solidarity/ –The neo-fascism that is now emerging within the context of the current capitalist crisis on both sides of the Atlantic has similar characteristics to the movements of the 1930s, but with one distinguishing feature. The targets for racist scapegoating are different. The targets today are immigrants: Arab, Muslim and African in Europe; and Latinos as well as the never-ending target of poor and working-class African Americans in the United States.The manufactured crisis with Russia over the issue of Ukraine is a case in point. The incredible recklessness and outrageous opportunism of the U.S./NATO/EU axis in destabilizing Ukraine—knowing that the driving forces on the ground were racist, neo-Nazi elements from the Right Sector and the Svoboda party—demonstrated once again the lengths this axis is prepare to go to achieve its geo-strategic objective of full-spectrum economic and political global domination.Yet, strangely, not only did many radicals in the United States and Europe not see the potential threat this situation represented—hey seemed unable to penetrate the simplistic cold-war propaganda that suddenly re-emerged to frame events in Ukraine.–end of towardfreedom info–
