One listened to portions of the US Conference of Mayors discussion as aired on C-Span
Most of us are informed, largely byway of media, of the standard to be followed. What if the standard is questionable?
Bait-and-switch may be a reason some people have labeled as war crimes (remembering that war crime is an oxymoron) Russian targeting of civilian infrastructure in Ukraine that denies to local community members the civil and human right of the dignity of a functional energy grid while accepting a dysfunctional US energy grid by labeling this as free enterprise.
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.
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.
Political Parties aren’t intended to run the nation. Neither branch of the Duopoly, D&R, seem to have placed this principle over self interest.
What else can we do other than destroy nature and people?
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?
American small business have been harmed in our capitalistic system that functions like a Pyramid Scheme while “government is run like a business”.
In the ’80’s, when Trickle Down was just beginning to be inculcated by Establishment and the wonders of globalism were envisioned (how did that turn out?) a derogatory put-down to people who were skeptical, was the label Luddite.
Anthropomorphizing of Creation stories by politicians and bureaucrats to excuse the all-to-human failure called war, by labeling, using language of institutionalized religion, which is patriarchal, by using such words as Armageddon, in a nation founded on principals that don’t seem to support either imperialism or state religions, could be a topic of discussion.
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.
Quite simply stated, Indigenous wisdom is veritable. In a conversation presented in the organicconsumer link toward the end of this story, Russell Brand offers a conversation between a FOX talking head and a down-home farmer that’s for real. To listen is time well invested. Ultimately the message as stated by said farmer is “complex systems have too many unexpected consequences”……that’s right…..
