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.
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.
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…..
Direction and control by hierarchy are supported by homogenizing culture into a malleable and sterile unit.
King Charles may be sufficiently aware to “feel the weight of history”. This is good news.
To remain locked within a box of indoctrination is simply too boring and a waste of a perfectly good life. What can I learn from others?
Transfer of the wealth of the nation has proceeded over decades under the guise of democracy that is the current euphemism for capitalism.
Heard on a Bill Moyers discussion years ago—paraphrase—–governments don’t do democracy, people do democracy.
Lee Camp speaks of the delicacy with which capitalistic hierarchical Establishment avoids using the word capitalism, as the public begins to awaken to the reality that capitalism isn’t synonymous with democracy. Capitalism is an economy theory. Monetary systems are useful when We The People feel encumbered with hauling around a cow to trade for a barrel of apples, for example. Capitalism is a perfectly valid system of economy. In contrast, capitalism as a governing principle, in other places and times, were more honestly called fascism, communism, or perhaps dictatorship.
Language matters especially from bureaucracy that can shape the lives of We The People. This change in language in NYS reminds of a decades-old sit-com called Designing Women. Included in the characters was a handyman who was imminently likable and dependable but wore a perpetually worried look on his face while often punctuating his conversation with reference to his “unfortunate incarceration”. This seems to have been a subtle political statement about the times of such policies and laws as stop and frisk.
Or in carefree and endearing terms of commercial governance, fun with words.
Privacy seems to be a value that straddles legislation and human rights. We could benefit from a public discussion of these topics. Laws are governmental and human rights are intrinsic.
Many functioning women of 2022 lived the reality of 1969. To express this FACT to young ladies of 2022 who may have taken their human rights for granted, seems to be futile. But as one reads the real-time stories of women in 1969, the enormity of the time and place returns. We are not currently in such a position after decades of protection of a woman’s human rights. Many more people are aware of and working toward protection for half of the population, that should be a non-issue, but isn’t.
Some people are perplexed with the left-wing reproach toward Conservatives on the topic of misogyny when the soft misogyny during the 2020 Democratic Party campaign seemed acceptable…….to use the Dem-strategist phrase “especially toward white women”……..at the same time the topic of Choice was missing. Misogyny appears to be so indoctrinated as to be like wall paper.
As toxic Supremacist patriarchy spreads in the USA, living conditions for women and perhaps the elderly seems to become dangerous. One can’t help but recall that in Medieval Europe, elderly women were also ostracized and hunted down by toxic patriarchy.
