Some in hierarchical Establishment recognize a need to indoctrinate the public that pagan lifestyle is undesirable. The concept of individual autonomy doesn’t comport comfortably with hierarchy.
Sacred is the essence of humanity and nature.
Marianne Williamson commits to sharing of her ideas on Wednesday and with an audience interaction each Sunday. Access to politicians, bureaucrats, and self-defined leaders is the heartbeat of democracy.
In the US democracy has been associated with capitalism. This is an erroneous framing by hierarchical Establishment that supports the capitalistic interest in power and control as opposed to the democratic local-community participation by the public. In the USA the authoritarian governing style of hierarchical capitalism is a foundation for dictatorship. In other words, the USA has lost the ability to lead or innovate. And so we need to notice success in other nations pertaining to public self-empowerment.
That women have been trained to suspect our own viability is the practice of patriarchy. For instance, the demeaning way Trump speaks about women bolsters his personal ego at the cost of female vitality. We find this attitude sometime violently so and sometime mired within religious restraint, from too many places in hierarchical Establishment. Women can fill their requisite space as intended by the Creator without defining from others.
This phrase is attributed to Ron Finley who (paraphrase) says growing your own food is like printing your own money.
The FACT is raised in this Kim Brown discussion, about local and often volunteer firefighters who didn’t know the type of chemicals in the fire in Palestine, OH that they fought. Some Upstate NY anti-fracking advocates are quite aware of the problem of industrial insinuation of chemicals into local neighborhoods with the possible disasters that are described as “accidents will happen”, and are a part of the nationalizing of risk and privatizing of profiteering that is embedded in capitalism.
NYS has passed legislation that would mandate overtime pay for farm workers after 40-hours-per week. Some local lawmakers have expressed concern that lack of understanding about the erratic time schedules in farm work will place undue burdens upon farm employers.
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.
You won’t ask the questions if you don’t hear the stories.
History as taught in the US educational system is written from the perspective of the USA. The globalism that has been about economics has conveniently overlooked FACTS that would more realistically inform about the role of humanity in wars. While admitting that Russia is the enemy and shouldn’t have attacked Ukraine, one would be intellectually dishonest if one didn’t recognize the price paid by Russia in WWII, and that in the USA has been superimposed by a presumption of US supremacy in challenging Hitler.
Because a better USA is possible, some people challenge a culture in which we know the price of everything and the value of nothing.—-
The conversation around paid sick days for railroad workers can spark healthy discussion.
An episode on The Office included Darryll telling Kelly that he liked her but (paraphrase) she needed to decide for herself what she wanted and stop playing games. A befuddled Kelly looks into the camera and says (paraphrase) Darryll says exactly what’s on his mind…..who does that?
To provide relief to targets of predatory debt and educational institutions, mirrors similar approaches by government to the disease-care industry. In both scenarios the middleman is protected at the expense of the targets and byway of politicians bought into public “service” via Citizens United who are deft at maintaining the structure which is capitalistic hierarchical Establishment that in another place and time could be called dictatorship, and that has little to do with free market principles.
