CAPITALISM IN PRACTICE

When you say what the rest of us should be able to figure out for ourselves anyway, you get censored read more

CIVILIZED POVERTY


When one head-of-state promotes the notion of protection from criminal activity of other heads-of-state, does this feel like the icing on the cake of world oligarchical privilege and control?  In other words, this seems like a preemptive self-serving maneuver for absolution.  One includes in this happy fraternity both sides of the D&R duopoly. read more

IMAGINE LIFESTYLE THAT DOES LITTLE HARM

Some corporate-owned-state-run MSM views are heard to call lifestyle with consideration of inflicting as little harm on the environment and each other is “Pollyanna-ish”.  This is an extraordinarily violent perspective.  Yet we seem sufficiently indoctrinated with hierarchical violence to submit to this mindset.  A thoughtful person simply cannot accept this aggression and violence as being normal.  This view is surely a choice, but a very bad choice. read more

DEFINE AMERICAN INTERESTS


First define American interests.  So far, oligarchs seem to have defined American interests for a silenced American public. read more

RECOGNIZE ACTIVISTS

Information has surfaced in local-community news reports about attempts from bureaucrats to down-play the legitimacy of citizens attempting to speak to issues of democratic (small d) action as would be expected in our democracy.  Law enforcement has called for a “crack-down” on “activists” that seems uniquely contrary to principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  Along with this FACT is an increasing promotion of gun use with diminishing norms about responsible gun use.  Included in this mix is the incorrect assertion that our system is capitalism.  Capitalism is hierarchical with a pervasive goal of profiteering.  This seems to be a recipe for corruption.  We need a discussion about whether we still embrace democracy, which is action by individual people, not by government.  We need to discuss whether gun use should be accompanied by responsibility.  We need to agree whether corruption should be legalized, when the lawmakers are bought into public office via Citizens United.  We have traveled far from logic. read more

BECOME FAMILIAR WITH NACs AND COP26

A point can be made that policies and indeed acronyms are in play as relates to government long before too many in the public are familiar with either.  Jargon could be properly described to the general public if we availed ourselves of a Free Press.  Instead the USA is encumbered with a state-run-corporate-owned MSM PR platform in place of a Free Press, but advertised as such.  And so, the public needs to dig into the so-called news to understand precisely what is transpiring. read more

CLIMATE CHANGE IS A HEALTH CRISIS

The environment has been exploited as a natural resource for profit when it is more FACTually associated with humanity and animals.  Harm inflicted upon the environment for profit is resulting in Climate Change that is harming human health.  Designation of nature as a Mother is an apt description, but leaves our environment exposed to the predatory presumption of capitalism.   read more

DON’T LET THE KIDS HEAR

To begin with, a nation cognizant of education about FACTual history to our children continues to tolerate history written by the winners, rather than according to events and impact.  We also continue to kowtow to “running government like a business” rather than according to principles of a democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  We also seem to prioritize a ROR in the markets over a healthy environment.  The kids are becoming miffed, but cling to business as usual.  Isn’t this strange? read more

THE NAGGING FEELING THAT SOMETHING’S WRONG


Using phrases such as free market, private property, and socialism which are all valid, an involved and accountable governance would also ensure the result isn’t violation of human and environmental rights.  So far in the USA, money is corrupting the process. read more
