CLIMATE CHANGE EFFECTS

Breathtakingly simplistic and snide.   And these are our leaders. read more

POWER TO THE PEOPLE

Quite simply stated, Indigenous wisdom is veritable.  In a conversation presented in the organicconsumer link toward the end of this story, Russell Brand offers a conversation between a FOX talking head and a down-home farmer that’s for real.  To listen is time well invested.  Ultimately the message as stated by said farmer is “complex systems have too many unexpected consequences”……that’s right….. read more

LOOK BEHIND THE CURTAIN

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. read more

CAPITALISM AND YOUR DOG

Reference to capitalism when one could as well have used the label tyranny is based on a society that is obsessed with money as a measure of normal. read more

NATURAL RIGHT TO THINK

The jolting sudden media preoccupation with monarchy lately only highlights the depravity one cannot ignore in our culture that mirrors feudal systems. read more

MAGIC OF INFLATION

C-Span asked the question this morning, “can the government get inflation under control”.   A better question could be the reason the Trump Administration began the trajectory of snow-balling inflation.  read more

STORIES THEY TELL US

Questions can be as important as answers to establish reality about topics that most of us haven’t absorbed. read more

MEANINGLESS WORK

Everyone gets to decide for themselves if activities filling their day have meaning.  This is an interesting topic and possibly not considered enough by many of us.  Awareness seems a component and slowing down may be one technique toward that end.

Another reason I love NYS—-https://bcpeaceaction.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/war-merchant-resistors-flyer-local.pdf        –September 9th at 11 AM Join Broome County Veterans for Peace and other peace groups to expose Lockheed Martin & BAE SystemsWeapons System

From nativeorganizing.org —PETITIONS to sign if you wish  — 

These two pieces of legislation would advance the Tribal management of public lands and improve the protection of sacred and cultural sites.

The carousel of absurdity includes governmental negligence in ignoring the plight of US citizens such as exist in Jackson, Mississippi while so-called protecting democracy in Ukraine, and pro-capitalist D&R duopoly promotion of imperialism against local communities in foreign nations.  To begin to raise voices against this tyranny, one may sign the petitions below, if one is so inclined—–

From RAN.org  —  The Consumer Goods Forum exists to help corporations like Procter & Gamble, Mondelēz and Nestlé reduce their negative environmental and human rights impacts. Sounds good, right?

What’s not good is when the Consumer Goods Forum turns a blind eye to corporate members who engage in violence against Indigenous peoples. We plan to corner the Consumer Goods Forum at NYC Climate Week later this month and demand accountability for violence against Indigenous peoples — please lend us your signature.

Consumer Goods Forum member Asia Pulp and Paper has used physical violence, intimidation and food crop destruction to displace several Indigenous and traditional communities like the Sakai People and Lubuk Mandarsah from their land  in Indonesia. This company has one of the worst human rights track records.

When we told the Consumer Goods Forum about Asia Pulp and Paper’s acts of violence, they ignored us — help us shout it this time.

It’s simply inexcusable for the Consumer Goods Forum to allow its members to use the forum in bad faith, as a way to greenwash serious environmental and human rights violations.

Help us demand at NYC Climate Week that the Consumer Goods Forum adopt a policy of zero-tolerance toward corporate members who use violence.—end of RAN.org info—

SO MUCH TO LEARN


To remain locked within a box of indoctrination is simply too boring and a waste of a perfectly good life.  What can I learn from others? read more

ARE MOTIVATIONAL SPEECHES THE SAME AS CASH FOR THE POOR?

Transfer of the wealth of the nation has proceeded over decades under the guise of democracy that is the current euphemism for capitalism. read more

WHY IS LIFE EXPECTANCY DROPPING?

In a nation where the life expectancy continues to drop and water is unavailable to growing numbers of people, we might question funding of foreign wars that seems beneficial to American oligarchs but at the cost of US citizens. read more

PREDATORY INFLATION


The story of several oligarchs pulling strings behind the scenes obscures the more relevant story of institutionalized hierarchical process that feels too similar to a Pyramid Scheme economy.  Fascism may more nearly be the correct definition since the system is held in place less by persuasion and more by laws. read more

NATURAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY


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. read more

SHIP OF FOOLS


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. read more
