Only recently like in the last day or so, one has noticed a MSM uptick in stories relating to Climate Change and the FACT that the cost is carried by We The People rather than those profiteering from abuse of natural resources (environment) and human resources (humanity).
The following is one example of incredibly widespread moral bankruptcy that is aside from financial. The stock market is an indication of the general tendency to place greed over life. Jamie Dimon seemed to lead a willing Obama (everybody does it) to reward Financial Meltdown perpetrators in 2008 when he could have chosen to uplift consumers.
In one’s imagination, the Ohio train derailment tragedy is the physical manifestation of the impact on Americans by the end-days of capitalism. The American Dream became entitlements following the Establishment rigging of government for their own enrichment.

A functioning journalist working within the framework of principles of a Free Press could easily debunk Russian propaganda with an interview with Ukrainian Alexsey Arestovich.
When you say what the rest of us should be able to figure out for ourselves anyway, you get censored—
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.
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.
First define American interests. So far, oligarchs seem to have defined American interests for a silenced American public.
Honesty can reduce tension. A first step is to acknowledge FACTS. This starts us down the road to maturity.
The incredible diversity of species found in the American woods is easy to overlook, but incalculably delightful and important.
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.
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.
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.
