Few of the public are aware of the decade-long struggle against human rights violations and natural rights violations in the Northeast, and most notably along the border of NYS and Pa.. A reason is censorship by corporate-owned government-influenced MSM. During the decade-long anti-fracking struggle, little to nothing was reported on local news about local-community advocacy to uphold human and natural rights. One doesn’t recall in the last week ore so, a news report that as Shapiro says, the penalties against corporate harm are historic. Perhaps I missed the local news report that could have encouraged local community members that incidentally, justice happens. Devoid of a Free Press, one appreciates social media, which is denigrated by corporate-owned government-run MSM
Patriarchy expects enabling from others——
AS ABOVE SO BELOW
As above so below. So far we haven’t tried it but we could attempt an experiment in improving lifestyle pertaining to infrastructure which may uplift attention to humanity that may incidentally address the insanity that is expressed in the violence and aggression on our streets. Not only is gun safety an issue that needs attention, but so is vehicular safety. One notion sees the promotion of both guns and vehicles by commercial interests as filling a deficiency in the characters of some people who have not received the validation that could otherwise do so by society based upon principles of humanity rather than hierarchy.
And by US, one means us, not USA.
What won’t money buy in the USA of material stuff, power, and influence. Not much. The same doesn’t apply to human rights or environmental rights, in which the opposite seems to be the FACT.
Each of the Russian-Ukrainian military action and the Supreme Court confirmation hearing raises important questions about US policy. As we “spread democracy around the world”, how is democracy playing out in the USA?
This is what justice could look like
Capitalism thrives in India as arrogantly as it does in the USA, along with Establishment assertions that both are democracies, but where both are controlled by a collaboration between commercial interests and government politicians and bureaucrats in a fashion that feels exposed to fascism. The result is a system in which hierarchical authority grows and the wealth of the nation transfer from the 100% to the 1% in a way that isn’t similar to democratic (small d).
When government is run like a business the predictable result on a continuum is organized crime or fascism. The USA has a high incarceration rate of its residents, a justice system that seems to be in place to control according to class rather than crime, transfer of wealth from the 100% to the 1%, a policy of sending US jobs overseas that further exacerbates crime issues, and use of the military for aggression rather than defense.
That a particular gender and physiognomy presumes to display as the most capable in leadership to the extent of authoritarianism is belied by the state of our society in the USA including loss of democracy, equality, and justice, and held in place by the system of patriarchy that is compatible with capitalism.
We choose our reality moment to moment. Currently a big question is whether democracy will continue. That is entirely in the hands of We The People, if we are capable of choosing our own reality. Over the last decades, a climb up the ladder of success as described by hierarchy has been the carrot to motivate We The People away from democracy and into the welcoming arms of capitalism. The problem is the trap of hierarchy that doesn’t include equality and justice. If the reward in dollars is sufficiently high, some people make the trade.
Neither monopoly or dictatorship supports voices of the public or principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional Republic.
Is anyone concerned enough to use the “F” word?
