Institutionalized religion seems to have permeated the US government. This may or may not be beneficial to We The People, but an anomaly seems worthy of note. In our Christian nation, one wonders how many of We The People have read straight through, the Old Testament and New Testament. Most of us have been subjected to highlights from the Old Testament, when which highlights in themselves can be a type of propaganda.
May Day is an American holiday. Who knew?
https://www.rbth.com/lifestyle/330314-may-first-in-russia –May 1 became International Labor Day after the tragedy at Haymarket Square in Chicago, Illinois, USA. In early May 1886, demonstrations were held in Chicago and other US cities demanding an eight-hour working day. It might seem a no-brainer today, but in the late 19th century many tycoons did not believe that workers had the right to sleep.
A reason some people trust the Green Party is the ability and willingness to discuss differences of opinion on topics crucial to our political system and our foreign affairs.
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.
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.
I’m interested in those with the courage to look behind the curtain, so to speak. One way to do so is to research history; and in particular history pertaining to people rather than institutions.
The public has no idea what goes on behind closed doors pertaining to politics. In NYS this was called 3-men-in-a-room politics. Or was it 2-men? Who knows?
C-Span hosted a call-in on the topic of swing voters and independent voters and how they would vote on Tuesday.
Aside from teaching Native American history in schools, one was interested to watch MSM hosts, during the Queen Elizabeth funeral, bring up the topic of monarchy and the FACT of treatment of Indigenous People in the many colonies of UK, without mentioning that one of these colonies was the USA pre-Revolution, with devastation of Native Americans that continued from the beginning to the current day. This seems to be a special level of oppression of Native Americans.
What do MAGA voters and the Democratic Base have in common? Some people could guess, the commonality is being hoodwinked by separate branches of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly.
In a nation where the life expectancy continues to drop and water is unavailable to growing numbers of people, we might question funding of foreign wars that seems beneficial to American oligarchs but at the cost of US citizens.
The story of several oligarchs pulling strings behind the scenes obscures the more relevant story of institutionalized hierarchical process that feels too similar to a Pyramid Scheme economy. Fascism may more nearly be the correct definition since the system is held in place less by persuasion and more by laws.
Liz Cheney has acted as a supporter of democracy to an extent that caused personal harm to her, and she is anti-Choice and possibly pro-capitalist. This seems to imply that a politician who is probably pro-capitalist, has valued democracy over hierarchical privilege.
