Some people see the origin of Creation less as a man with a beard and wearing a night gown, standing in the clouds, and more like cause and effect orchestrated by each individual. A C-Span caller the other day said the hurricane was a judgment on Florida for shipping migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
Breathtakingly simplistic and snide. And these are our leaders.
One is under informed about the details of the following story about Brazil to analyze the contents. But where one finds symptoms it is logical to look for a disease. We know democracy is diminishing at an alarming rate around the globe ad most markedly in the supposed bastion of democracy called the USA. Hierarchy are gaining wealth at the expense of the majority of humanity and this is explained by “running government like a business”. Climate Change is too obvious to be denied by any other than the most dedicated environmental exploiters. Climate Change is a price paid by Earth and humanity to promote hierarchical Establishment financial interests.
We The People are spending too much time catering to and cleaning up after oligarchs. One area about which this is true seems to be energy production, where the air is sucked out of the room by fossil fuel industries. Support of a dirty and obsolete industry for the sake of nostalgia and inertia feels dangerous. Consider a few new ideas.—-
Democracy means each individual respect their own life, and says so.
Hierarchical Establishment types may have begun to notice the success when locally-supportive people work plans for lifestyle that are logical, effective, and fair. Sensible would be a change away from the depravity of capitalistic process toward more people-friendly systems. Instead it feels like Establishment is attempting to hitch their wagon to the stars of local community.
A realistic look at ourselves needs a strong dose of comedy. Views that are totally bogus are given too much credence without humor.
If manufacturing and industry is the goal, we’re possibly on the right track. If the goal is viable life on Earth, a few changes are in order. Natural rights encompass people and nature, because we are of The Creator, in whatever way each imagines Her/Him, It, or Cause-And-Effect.
C-Span hosted a discussion about the US history of wire taps. Also mentioned seemed to be the view that such surveillance as used by tyrannical government in modern times, originated and were perfected in the USA. That’s an interesting notion if FACTual.
So the same Administration that welcomed Russia’s Lavrov into the White House without transparent journalism provided for the information of We The People, and with Trump meeting privately with Russia’s Putin without availability of journalism to provide information to other bureaucrats, politicians, or We The People, also spied on journalists meeting with Assange in UK, when said Assange is investigated in a role of whistle blower who reported on US war crimes.
Dimon may be pessimistic because, while those of his ilk have benefited from the US government run via capitalism, FACTually speaking this isn’t a free market system, is more nearly authoritarian than democratic, and on a continuum seems to be organized crime. Why would those in privileged positions be worried about the system? Perhaps in the end the best system would be our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic is better than capitalism.
C-Span hosted a discussion this morning on the topic of ranked choice voting. The benefits of choice using ranked choice are entering the thought process of more voters, and may one suggest due to efforts by 3rd-Party voices. The D&R duopoly haven’t spread information about ranked choice voting benefits to voters for obvious reasons of control that underwrites the authoritarian character of the duopoly. This also raises the topic of the influence of 3rd-Party voices that may have been censored by regulations from the R&D duopoly, that have still managed to censor said voices off of ballots and away from debates, but but which 3rd- Parties nonetheless have broken through to some of the electorate by nothing more than moral authority.
Maybe not forever or for everyone, but surely this seems a lifestyle that should be available. What if more communities offered de-indoctrination spaces? Would mental health improve? Could spiritual health be remembered?
Lee Camp speaks of the delicacy with which capitalistic hierarchical Establishment avoids using the word capitalism, as the public begins to awaken to the reality that capitalism isn’t synonymous with democracy. Capitalism is an economy theory. Monetary systems are useful when We The People feel encumbered with hauling around a cow to trade for a barrel of apples, for example. Capitalism is a perfectly valid system of economy. In contrast, capitalism as a governing principle, in other places and times, were more honestly called fascism, communism, or perhaps dictatorship.
Aside from the obvious reality of the transfer of the wealth of the planet from the 100% to the 1%, a commensurate diminishing of equality and justice….surprise, surprise…..has happened. Why is it legal for the upper echelon to put at risk US national security while members of the general public are incarcerated for, for example, jaywalking?
