For those who argue that we are a Constitutional Republic and not a democracy, one wishes an explanation that the People’s Republic of China is labeled communistic. Both democracy and communism are process, and to mix the two with the notion of a Republic is word play.
One requests forbearance for the following copy and paste. One was unaware of a follow-up incident reported on local news that again shines light in dark Southern Tier corners. The newest story follows the copy and paste that sets the stage for the concern from some people about a growing ‘ole boy insinuation that may be founded upon the current “strong man” ideas of governance expressed by some mediocre political hacks. Some people view these self-defined “strong men” as the typical historical patriarchy that uses brutality, greed, and self-interest in place of statespersonship.Copy and paste—–
To logically criticize obviously questionable FACTS will bring charges of being “anti” something or other. This seems to be a way to censor that which should and often isn’t discussed in public.
This morning C-Span hosted a discussion about the Israeli/Hamas fiasco. An ocean liner seems to have turned as so many callers spoke of the distinction between Hamas and Palestinian communities, and the context preceding the weekend attack which included the destruction of Palestinian homes and crops by Israel.
A Free Press is illusive in the USA in 2023. Collaboration between business interests and government currently control a preponderance of what passes as news; and censorship seems used to silence diverse views.
One heard on NPR recently, apparently in answer to complaints that Climate Change has been ignored by Establishment, that “scientists have warned us about Climate Change for years”. Thank you, NPR for this enlightenment; and apparently the broken link is MSM that hasn’t reported that which scientists have insisted.
The best defense may be a good offense.
The following feels like a caricature of capitalistic hierarchical Establishment actions.—
This summer we seem to have reached a tipping point about effects of global warming on humanity and nature that would permit denial as an obviously inane view. And so Establishment has assumed a policy of mitigation as to the impact, rather than dealing with the underlying anomalies of lifestyle that contributed to the global warming. This seems to be a policy that indulges big-money campaign donors who profit by the harmful policies that contribute to global warming, and is based on dependence of lawmakers on the largess of Citizens United, to their personal well being. This leaves out attention to the needs of We The People.
The notion that “we are a 2-Party system” is a presumption of the Democratic and Republican Branches of the duopoly, and not based on Constitutional norms. Other political Parties exist and in FACT have attracted the majority of voters. The R&D duopoly have censored the voices of other Parties, and have passed laws prohibiting equal access.
Personally one finds the least of superstitious indoctrination among local-community people. Alternatively, Establishment interjects fear among local-community people when plain truth and FACTS would be better.
The following story offers an opportunity for delicacy of understanding that may be lost on the average hierarchical capitalist. We are watching an interesting attempt at elite dignity as they ‘splain away continued support for foreign and sometime-enemy monopolies playing out across the USA.
It would seem Iberdola in Spain has some level of control of the electrical grid of NYS, including profits.
A new normal is in place in the USA about which youngsters are oblivious. Professional designation is the smokescreen for dictatorial control. Education indoctrinates into capitalism rather than teaches democracy.
Censorship by capitalistic proponents doesn’t permit ideas to infiltrate into the notice of Americans. As one who has as little use for communism as for capitalism because they both seem hierarchical, yet censorship of ideas seem the danger.
The value of the recent UFO concerns in the USA that has an infinitesimal chance of being aliens from outside of our universe, is the attention-grabbing ability that may accrue toward those who may otherwise be running around in red caps and annoying others. A significant value is to shine light into the dark corner of government secrecy that is out of sync with a democracy.
