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.
Some people see the origin of Creation less as a man with a beard and wearing a night gown, standing in the clouds, and more like cause and effect orchestrated by each individual. A C-Span caller the other day said the hurricane was a judgment on Florida for shipping migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
C-Span hosted a call-in discussion in which at 7:30AM a woman expressed a view (paraphrase) that we need a people’s counsel that approved or disapproved the laws and policies by politicians. If principles in the US Constitution hadn’t been so defiled by institutionalized greed and corruption in the electoral process enforced through Citizens United, our system would be representative in which politicians had as their first concern, We The People.
So many ways to do better
https://www.ecowatch.com/pollinator-gardens-bus-stop-roofs-europe.html –Across Europe, more and more bus stops are sporting a new look — with lush green roofs designed to support pollinators. The number of bus stops topped with pollinator gardens is expected to increase another 50% in the UK alone by the end of this year.
The more diversity in perspective, the more accurate can be final conclusions. MSM sound-bite reporting, however, is excellent for indoctrination. The public should act accordingly. Media doesn’t necessarily imply a Free Press.
Questions can be as important as answers to establish reality about topics that most of us haven’t absorbed.
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.
To provide relief to targets of predatory debt and educational institutions, mirrors similar approaches by government to the disease-care industry. In both scenarios the middleman is protected at the expense of the targets and byway of politicians bought into public “service” via Citizens United who are deft at maintaining the structure which is capitalistic hierarchical Establishment that in another place and time could be called dictatorship, and that has little to do with free market principles.
So the same Administration that welcomed Russia’s Lavrov into the White House without transparent journalism provided for the information of We The People, and with Trump meeting privately with Russia’s Putin without availability of journalism to provide information to other bureaucrats, politicians, or We The People, also spied on journalists meeting with Assange in UK, when said Assange is investigated in a role of whistle blower who reported on US war crimes.
Considering the happy profits captured by Pentagon contractors reported in the commondreams link below, a thoughtful person will weigh this good fortune against the resulting human deaths that are inevitable in war zones, lost opportunities for upgrading of lifestyle for American citizens rather than producing war machines, and use of the US military personnel as placeholders who have figuratively tread water for the length of time of their service when meaningful activities could have been supported instead.
Some people notice globalism isn’t about local communities as much as it is about upper echelon world oligarchs. This feels like dictatorship on a whole new level.
The C-Span guest speaking about immigration, said (paraphrase) we all know America needs more low-income workers. Apparently the US is not sufficiently near to our traditional standards of slavery as yet.
One wonders if it is supposed to be impolite, discussion about politics or religion, the better for hierarchical Establishment to use both to control We The People. Perhaps this also keeps the public in the dark about ideas other than those in each particular cubicle of thinking.
One takes a wild guess here that the shooter was male; and armed for specifically said occurrence when a “good guy with a gun” was needed. Domestic violence targets will attest to the benignity of such characters until they’re not.
Climate Change will impact young people more than others. Irritation is heard about the planet that is handed to them that includes Climate Change. At the same time popular culture indoctrinates about availability of anything desired at one’s fingertips. This is confusing. Add to this dependence and trust in an apparent cause of Climate Change, which seems to be technology, as the means by which humanity will continue untrammeled self-indulgence, and a few questions arise about thought processes.
