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.
Imagination…..the true home of reality. As quoted by Tobias Churton. In other words, departures from reality as suggested by Establishment may too often be another style of indoctrination. To build a reality it first may need to be imagined.
C-Span asked the question this morning, “can the government get inflation under control”. A better question could be the reason the Trump Administration began the trajectory of snow-balling inflation.
Heard on a Bill Moyers discussion years ago—paraphrase—–governments don’t do democracy, people do democracy.
American exceptionalism may be a political strategy to promote either branch of the Democratic/Republican duopoly in a system that therefore creates psychological imprisonment that deters excellence as manifesting in other local communities around the globe. As near as South America, extraordinary local-community democratic (small d) actions abound under suspicious imperialistic barriers. This may be a reason environmental racism is so different in each of North America and South America, for example.
The story as told by the “winners” may be a tale of predatory exploitation—
On this cherished Thanksgiving Day, diverse views of the celebration and/or day of mourning, as the case may be, have floated through the world of media. Most people possibly acknowledge this day in which we pause to give thanks for what we have, as a peaceful remembrance of grace. To consider the many facets of acknowledgment of reality is one way to celebrate Thanksgiving. We must be aware that history is written by the winners and more currently by the profiteers. Those who mention a Utopian society or the necessity of maintaining a clean and healthy environment, or who advocate for respect for animals, are often labeled as being Pollyanna-ish. In FACT the indoctrination that the current system of capitalism is the best for the most people has been proven to be false; so perhaps capitalistic hierarchical Establishment needs to acknowledge their views are Pollyanna-ish. Why must one view be labeled as Pollyanna-ish, that hasn’t been tried, and so hasn’t failed, while the system that was tried and has failed is projected as valid?
As hierarchical Establishment pose as arbiters of life on Earth, and perhaps beyond, local common community go about the business of reality. The longer the fantasy land of hierarchical Establishment is imposed upon the public (indoctrination), the longer will take actualization of life was will comply with sanity. A growing cadre of local-community members are working toward the goal of integrity.
