C-Span ran a bit of a speech by someone named Mike Gallagher-R, in which he said (paraphrase) the CCP (China) took advantage of US “good faith”. Probably he’s referring to the blind trust of US politicians (AKA jumping through corporate hoops) in imposing the national security risk upon the US public known as globalism, in which jobs, manufacturing, and control evolved to China.
Complexity is built into the system to enable control. Meanwhile, a few dedicated high-value principles are all that is really needed. But where would corruption hide?
The public has no idea what goes on behind closed doors pertaining to politics. In NYS this was called 3-men-in-a-room politics. Or was it 2-men? Who knows?
Or in carefree and endearing terms of commercial governance, fun with words.
The capitalistic hierarchy that disdains the concept of worker-owned co-op business, may insinuate a notion that the lifeblood of business, which is the worker, is outside of the mechanism and therefore unworthy of standards of employment. Laws to protect workers have a low chance of passing when lawmakers are contained in positions of power by big-money campaign donations from big-money and commercial interests. Capitalism is the protection of hierarchy, not of workers. This isn’t the concept of free markets, but seems more nearly indenture.
C-Span would be of service to offer ideas about a peace budget. We don’t have one at this time. We do however have a very expensive Pentagon budget that seems a prerequisite to maintain business as usual.
In one person’s view, the same oligarchy that thrives by dividing Americans does the same around the globe. The US Constitution doesn’t include requirement that the USA police foreign nations, nor that we support an oligarchy. Who can say in the USA of 2022, that we are not an oligarchy? A symptom is the deep division that surely is promoted by a Democratic/Republican duopoly that has been buoyed into power byway of big-money campaign donations legalized without being legitimized by the Citizens United decision by a highly questionable Supreme Court.
The topic this morning on C-Span probably effects most people in the USA. The disappearance of so-called middle class jobs happened after chain stores had obliterated locally owned small businesses. Any politician who couldn’t connect the dots didn’t deserve to be in office due to ignorance. But that so many politicians have become wealthy during this era seems to confirm corruption. The worship of Reagan, then Obama, then Trump, seems to be the story of withering compliance and enabling by the general public.
IS PR MISINFORMATION?
Fiscal policy that encourages if not mandates that both Mom and Dad must compete in the so-called workforce also supports use of our educational system as babysitters funded by property taxes imposed upon homeowners. Globalism that sent jobs overseas ensured poverty-level wages that enrich capitalistic hierarchical Establishment. Who knew our school systems seem responsible for feeding children, too? This was once the responsibility of parents who in 2021 are funneled away from family life and into that purported workforce. In other words, the priority in our capitalistic system is using We The People in a corporate framework rather than as respected citizens for which a free market functions. Extraordinary property taxes to fund the educational system as babysitters encourages Mom and Dad to maintain workforce lifestyle in place of family life, due to simple economic desperation.
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.
