Control of information promotes Establishment stories.
Quoted From Martin Luther King, Jr:
“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.”
While monopolies are ignored and price gouging has become a way of life under capitalism, workers are subjected to restraint, scrutiny, and exploitation compatible with hierarchical predatory behavior of big business and corporations. Non-compete agreements are only one example.
One believes the following book by Tolstoy was banned in Russia. Oligarchs (those who steer public opinion for personal promotion) are similar.
Here’s the deal…..after a lifetime of self-denying reading space for topics of personal interest, in order to dedicate time and energy to career studies and obligations to our capitalistic system, retirement has offered the lull to read that which is personally enjoyable and interesting. Nothing being perfect, one grapples with the self-imposed sense of guilt that has been a prerequisite to earning a living over said 45 years. And now one is listening to politicians who raise their own salaries with the flick of a pen, into law, call retirees welfare recipients. But the political pay raises may be hard earned due to the work of indoctrinating the public, which can’t be easy work.
As long as we’re going to fixate on the economy rather than principles of our democratic Constitutional republic, we could start by democratizing the economy.
Apparently based in Sweden……As one who hasn’t eaten meat since 1990, living in a hunting area in Upstate NY, and who know hunter neighbors, this isn’t a surprise. Life is complicated. The best we can do is the best we can.
Because a better USA is possible, some people challenge a culture in which we know the price of everything and the value of nothing.—-
The conversation around paid sick days for railroad workers can spark healthy discussion.
The US public has been hearing endless descriptions of life in our nation, and the exceptional supremacy over lives of other people around the globe. In FACT, the rest of the globe is often so informed of US exceptionalism. MSM that represents the D&R duopoly are the mouthpiece for this information. But more and more we begin to hear alternative views that seem legitimate when we consider there must be more than one view. Consider a few other perspectives…
Human rights and natural rights inform our democratic Constitutional republic.
Myth can be seen as a psychic view of life as experienced throughout humanity. Considering recent incorrect political polling information that was broadcast by MSM, can hierarchical news reports accomplish the same end of internalized mass myth?
In a Pyramid Scheme economy, logic isn’t required.
Americans may have an unusual view of Indigenous people and may use the description as a noun rather than an adjective. When we view the rest of the world in provincial thinking, are we skewed, or is everyone else?
C-Span presented a political campaign commercial at about 7:21 AM in which the politician said he supported the CHIPS Act that brings manufacturing back to the USA. So many politicians are jumping on the bandwagon of returning manufacturing to the USA without explaining the reason they desecrated manufacturing in the USA in the first place. By the way these same politicians are still receiving big-donor campaign contributions byway of Citizens United that casts shadow on veracity and honesty.
