STORIES CHANGE WITH THE TELLER


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.   read more

HOW DO WE LEARN?

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. read more

COMPARE COMMUNISM AND CAPITALISM

One has shared stories from RT recently, and believes this is considered offensive from some quarters.  The presumption would be that said sharing represents affinity toward communism.  FACTually speaking the intention is more nearly as a comparison between communism and capitalism, which use tactics and seem to have hierarchical motivation that are alarmingly similar.  In other words, the purported fear of communism isn’t so much that people would jump on the communistic bandwagon but that currently-indoctrinated people on the capitalistic bandwagon would recognize themselves in the communist targets. read more

NATURAL CAPITAL

We need to remember reality, especially on the meaning of capital.  Here are a few topics toward that end. read more

QUESTION DECEPTION

On a MSM Team Red/Blue “show” last night, one heard a “reporter” announce that among “democracies”, the USA was a baby.  Not having verified but remembering info from years ago, it seems the USA has the oldest continuous government in the world.  This is to the benefit of the USA, if only politicians and bureaucrats could act accordingly. read more

HISTORY AND CURRENT EVENTS


One has immersed oneself in study of historical Christianity due to ignorance on the topic, and wishing to enlighten oneself.  The reason is that one seems to live in what is tending toward a Christian theocracy.  The take away from historical reading including said info being straight as possible from the horses’ mouths (Josephus and such) supports the following personal views— read more

REAGAN CONCEPTS WERE A NATIONAL SECURITY RISK


We still are subjected to Conservative propaganda of the Reagan wonder years that were a lie then and are rewritten history today.  The harm to We The People is real and the time needed for the public to understand the extent of the lie, and then to act accordingly, may be long.  Denial seems to be the reason for ongoing Reagan worship in the same way as is the denial in ongoing Trump worship.   read more

CORPORATE RULE

Conversations about tariffs are long overdue.  Tariffs that support sale of US products are sensible.  When the products add to Climate Change as compared to products from foreign nations, an obvious problem has arisen.  While the Trump tariffs seem to have been imposed on only a targeted group of products, it is of interest that after imposition prices of many products manufactured in foreign nations automatically rose, even if the Trump tariff wasn’t imposed upon those particular products. read more

CONSIDER HISTORY ASIDE FROM INSTITUTIONS

I’m interested in those with the courage to look behind the curtain, so to speak.  One way to do so is to research history; and in particular history pertaining to people rather than institutions. read more

CONSIDER ORIGIN OF VIEWS

The following tweet calls for corroburation.  The conclusion confirms what one has suspected for years, which is that earning a degree from an institution of higher learning is indicative of institutionalized indoctrination into patriarchal capitalism.  Apparently this goes along with enrichment of patriarchal capitalistic hierarchy as suggested by accompanying heavy debt load by those so inculcated.   read more
