Control of information promotes Establishment stories.
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.
Transparency seems important if people are to have the ability to understand the complexity on topics our politicians make decisions about, for the US public. RT has been censored out of the US media line-up. As one who believes one receives propaganda via RT, one also recognizes the propaganda is no more nor less than received byway of CNN, MSNBC, or FOX. This is the reason diversity in news sources is important, along with individuals who are aware enough to compare and investigate upon one’s own.
Free will implies responsibility. War is a characteristic of neither free will or responsibility.
The US government seems more involved in policing the globe than protecting the US public. Lack of a 1-payer universal health care policy is an example, at the same time the Pentagon is absorbing the wealth of the nation with no accountability and in FACT with disturbing evidence of having misplaced $22,000,000,000,000 (with a T) of taxpayer money. C-Span hosted a discussion in which a caller questioned the reason for foreign aid to Israel, that is a wealthy nation. Where is that money going and to what end? Why is a wealthy foreign nation prioritized over a US public that is in need?
Indoctrination means limitation of the ability to generate ideas. The dollar can be pegged to clean water standards. Why don’t we try that?
One would love to talk about Climate Change; but first one must wade through the corruption.
Fear more than reason may support the knee-jerk reaction of hyper funding the Pentagon in order to increase defense capabilities at the same time another recent reminder of inordinate danger looms over the public within the US borders as pertains to an obsolete and flimsy energy grid. The pentagon is purported to have misplaced about $22,000,000,000,000, that’s with a “T”.
As one who doesn’t take seriously Marjorie Taylor Greene and who believes she does herself a disservice by continuing in manic right-wing chauvinism, one is still surprised to agree with her assertion that an audit is required on the topic of the US funding to Ukraine for the war with Russia.
When the Republican branch of the duopoly are in power they investigate the Democratic branch of the duopoly and vice versa. This is an excellent bi-partisan deflection that keeps in power our 2-Party system and the oligarchy behind it. Meanwhile local-community members around the globe and including the USA are warned we “must sacrifice”
Breathtaking is any presumption that attack on nature can be perpetrated without an accompanying attack on humanity. This is emblematic of hierarchical Establishment indoctrination that has urged humanity to identify with corporations rather than nature.
Human rights and natural rights inform our democratic Constitutional republic.
Does anyone believe the Establishment-imposed sanctions by elite US politicians do harm to any other than poor people? This includes the poor people of the USA as sanctions circle back onto the US public byway of high fuel prices and especially byway of, for example, the Trump tariff that was sold as an imposition upon China but is in FACT a tax on products manufactured outside of the USA and sold to the US public, when manufacturing has been outlawed in the USA by bad trade agreements inflicted by politicians at the behest of their corporate campaign donors promoted by Citizens United. The collaboration center for negotiation of such laws as have imposed inflation (price gouging) on the US public, may be found at www.alec.org.
Would a developed country actually have such chaos as does the USA?
