In a republic run similarly to a Pyramid Scheme and not a democracy, the euphemism for price gouging appears to be inflation. read more


The worry of inflation would feel more easily handled if it was addressed as price gouging or monopoly, for which laws are in place.  When it is labeled as inflation, the predatory behavior can be hidden behind the curtain of the wizard.  This is one reason one is charmed by the adorable presumption as discussed on C-Span this week, that ubiquitous monitoring of the US public for anxiety should become commonplace.  A better policy would be for competent governance that doesn’t undermine Americans and contribute to anxiety. read more


As toxic Supremacist patriarchy spreads in the USA, living conditions for women and perhaps the elderly seems to become dangerous.  One can’t help but recall that in Medieval Europe, elderly women were also ostracized and hunted down by toxic patriarchy. read more

Howie Hawkins suggests New York State has the most suppressive rules to permit political Parties on the ballet.  This paraphrase used is only that, and the actual phraseology of Howie Hawkins can be accessed at the end of this information.  Here’s a fresh bit of thought raised in the Hawkins’ discussion; why do we have a Senate?  His answer, we don’t.  Listen to be awakened.

The United States definition of a dictator is any leader that will not let our corporations control their natural resources–end of blackintheempire post—-

https://twitter.com/blackintheempir/status/1535364644847730688    –The U.S. that helped to overthrow the democratically elected President of Ukraine in 2014, is now fighting for the democracy in Ukraine as the democracy in Ukraine bans all of its opposition Parties.

C-Span hosted a call in about gun control and crime in the USA, with open lines broken down into the Republican Party, Democratic Party, Independents, and law enforcement, with the presupposition that callers needed to identify with one of those concepts.  

https://www.c-span.org/video/?520913-2/washington-journal-news-headlines-viewer-calls       –ON THE MOVEMENT FOR GUN CONTROL. WASHINGTON JOURNAL IS NEXT WITH YOUR CALLS AND TWEETS ON THE NEWS OF THE DAY. (music)–end of c-span info–

Perpetration of misinformation that US citizens are required to identify with a political Party which is suspiciously close to dictatorship, one notices the context of this presentation that asks the question of which will best deal with crime.  Why is so-called law enforcement included as an entity to fight crime, judging from reality in the USA in 2022?

FACTually a case can be made that each of the call-in choices specified by C-Span may be in certain times and places be the origin of criminal activity; or at least the origin of dictatorial presumption toward We The People.  To enforce identification with one of those quite-often authoritarian sources may be a part of the problem of democracy that is surely in decline in the USA.  In other words, indoctrination is open but clothed in notions of Free Speech.  

The dictator feels to be the Democratic/Republican duopoly that is a Capitalist Party that mirrors the actions and control of the Communist Party of the Former USSR.

The acceptance of Sweden and Finland that are enthusiastic to be allowed entrance into NATO, and are wealthy socialist nations that offer universal health care to their citizens, can be a source of funding for the Ukraine military actions defending against Russia, permitting relief to US taxpayers to an extent that permits availability to US citizens the humanity of universal health care——

Some people in the USA mindlessly sweep together all Europeans under one label, the better to promote propaganda more than reality.  This makes easier promotion of evermore military action under an inane heading of “protecting Western values”.  Life is more complicated—-

Mitch McConnell graced us with his view about expanded funding for The Military-Industrial Complex to enhance national security.  The view from Mitch McConnell is predictable when one considers reports of his familial connections to commercial interests in China.  National security for American oligarchs is often imagined in terms of “protecting American interests overseas” which is commercial interest in foreign nations.   read more


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?

Legalized corruption in elections byway of Citizens United seems to have produced the culture in which politicians don’t think they are above the law, they are above the law. 
Big-money campaign donors have highly questionable influence over local politicians.  One doesn’t suggest money was an influence in the following scenario.  But what happened to the governmental suggestion that politicians should avoid the appearance of corruption? read more


One hears hierarchical characters such as the President and corporate-owned-politically-influenced MSM warn Americans against fascism.  One wonders where the warnings were about predatory capitalism that on a continuum seems to follow one of 2 paths; either fascism or organized crime.  Which system under which we suffer should be the conversation. read more


C-Span hosted a number of relevant topics this morning that relate to a majority of the public.  One topic is use of law enforcement to ostensibly tax poverty using policies that persecute by law, people with a lesser ability to pay fines and fees.   read more


Discussion on C-Span this morning presented diverse perspectives.  At 9:00AM a caller (paraphrase) spoke to the lack of attention from our government for Senior citizens and handicapped people.  A feature of capitalism is “running government like a business”.  This on a continuum becomes organized crime.  The Pyramid-Scheme economy is a prerequisite to capitalism that caters to hierarchy by exploitation of human resources (people) and natural resources (environment).  Senior citizens and physically-challenged people are not always a solicited part of the workforce.  In FACT in a civilized society they would be honored members.  In capitalism they are not respected. read more


We often have heard hierarchical Establishment proponents warn We The People that we shouldn’t describe our system as a democracy.  Perhaps those using this forbidden word do so in place of reading out the entirety of the First Amendment that seems to suggest freedom and inclusion in reference to our governance.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
