C-Span opened their phones for so many excellent views that to choose just a few would be impossible. One is heartened that so many Americans have awakened to the corruption in our government as we have meandered down the path of “running government like a business”. This on a continuum is organized crime.
Corporate-privilege laws aren’t a gift from God. They are indicative of governing corruption.
C-Span–caller-9:37AM–paraphrase–I don’t trust white women (referring incoherently to feminism).
One heard on NPR recently, apparently in answer to complaints that Climate Change has been ignored by Establishment, that “scientists have warned us about Climate Change for years”. Thank you, NPR for this enlightenment; and apparently the broken link is MSM that hasn’t reported that which scientists have insisted.
The notion that “we are a 2-Party system” is a presumption of the Democratic and Republican Branches of the duopoly, and not based on Constitutional norms. Other political Parties exist and in FACT have attracted the majority of voters. The R&D duopoly have censored the voices of other Parties, and have passed laws prohibiting equal access.
Lies are direct or by omission. Then there’s the lie of charming disarming by persuasion…aka actors. Recognize them.
One suggests the value of Affirmative Action was genuine as far as it went, but it could have been a hierarchical deflection. Consider networking as pertains to the college admissions process. Why address the requirements of the underprivileged when legislation, policy and tradition give precedent to entrenched interests in college admissions.
NY hasn’t as yet challenged our uniquely heavy-handed jerrymandering, or equitable inclusion of 3rd-Party candidates that currently face absurd standards for inclusion. The Republican/Democratic duopoly acts as a dictatorship in enacting laws to maintain their monopoly on elections that should never be in the hands of political Party corporations, but should be in the hands of the electorate.
A point can be made that lawfare has been perfected against the US public over decades, as laws are passed that support transfer of the wealth of the nation from the 100% to the 1%.
How do other people see us? Who is right and who is wrong?
C-Span airs at about 6:50AM a different entry into Student Cam 2023 (www.studentcam.org). The ideas are relevant and the idealism is admirable. Is it too cynical to mention that when students take on predatory educational-loan pay back, idealism may be replaced with cold reality. One hopes not.
A key component in a democracy is people and our actions.
Is dictatorship when open reporting and citizen communication is stifled? Money isn’t Speech but can stifle Free Speech. Why aren’t more people talking about Citizens United?
Most people have heard spoken of, “the new world order”. This is consistently spoken of as to have been inculcated into the public thought process. We haven’t heard a logical and precise definition of what this will entail. This topic comes to mind due to a question that went unanswered from a C-Span caller at about 8:45AM in which a caller questioned about what “the new world order” as first mentioned by Bush (he didn’t say which Bush, but does it matter?) might be.
Is it a dictatorship, when transparency to the public is challenged and laws are enacted to benefit the elite while the majority of the public are used to that end?
