HARM OF CHAUVINISM
American chauvinism that chooses to define the world according to US views seems self-indulgence.
The Green Party conversations attempt an exchange between people with differing views in a clear exchange of ideas.
COURAGE TO CHANGE
Change requires courage and imagination. Propaganda helps to ensure the public have neither.
WHAT DO NORAD AND NATO HAVE IN COMMON?
One commonality is a diversity of US “enemies”. But a more succinct commonality comes to mind. And information about current events stamped “top secret”, will probably in about 10 years be found stuck to the bottom of some politicians shoe.
In this season of Imbolc, we can remember we are the drivers of our lives. The choice can be ours as to how we wish to live and what we believe.
PEACE AND WAR
One believes the following book by Tolstoy was banned in Russia. Oligarchs (those who steer public opinion for personal promotion) are similar.
WAR, WATER, AND ELECTRICITY
Use of the word “forgets” (link below) is extremely diplomatic. Real intellectual gymnastics are needed to ignore NATO intrusion onto the borders of Russia. At the same time one condemns the Russian invasion into Ukraine, childish trust is required to overlook the same from NATO toward Russian security.
THE PUBLIC AS ENABLERS
And the USA still denies its citizens a 1-payer comprehensive public health care system that would be less costly, more efficient, and inclusive.
EARTH BECOMES FLATTER
In a system of competitive capitalism, to slow down is anathema, but what if that is the way to understand life—
Marija Gimbutas is an archaeologist who expresses controversial views. Controversy seems to originate from views of past cultures that aren’t embedded in patriarchy, or one may say yang. In the following LA Times story about her, you will find many said criticisms. Many women, however, could be interested to consider that women throughout history were vital members of society. That aggression and violence have often defined “the winners”, one shouldn’t be surprised that history is written by said “winners”.
It’s like oligarchs bear no responsibility in a society called open, where the 1% can “pocket $1.1 billion” and then express disdain for the “closed society” of other nations.
Definitions are vital, or we don’t know what we’re talking about. Discussion about health may be laughable as for example, disease perpetuation for profit is labeled health care. Who needs censorship when double talk will do?
DON’T IGNORE THE OBVIOUS
US taxpayers are funding too many in Ukraine who identify as fascists, according to reports. Fascism seems to be governance so intimately controlled by big-money interests and commercial interests as to exclude participation by the general public. In the USA, one views government as uncomfortably close to this system. The USA is sending $40,000,000,000 (with a B) to support this system in the Ukraine, after also helping to fund Davos, the world economic forum. Meanwhile, many in the US public go begging.
POWER OF GREED
This sort of exposes the maniacal undercurrent of NATO, does’t it?—
