The Click in the Brain that Changes Everything

(Note: the Video Weekends are currently stalled because of my relocation — in the worst case this blog may pause for some weeks while I lack both time and Internet access)

WARNING: This can be painful. It might help young (even so-called ‘middle-aged’) people finally grow up inside. But it tends to come with pain. Unlike my fellow human beings, I got to this stage of revelation in my infancy, a condition that always made my fellow humans strike me as some kind of dim-witted semi-sentient alien creatures on whose planet I had unfortunately been dropped somehow. When you get to this stage of awareness (and there is one realization-stage even beyond that *sigh*, one that this frankly imperfectly insightful man in the shared video below has not yet reached) it becomes impossible to glorify or even accept commonly promoted goals and deifications of “meritocratic” competition, rich ruling classes, allegedly “free” markets, oh-so-successful big business “thought leaders”, warmongering jingoism, and similar blind idiocies. It is our lives that really count, both our own and all the other lives in the world, lives infinitesimally short and usually very painful at least towards their ends (if not throughout as they are increasingly becoming to more and more of us human beings despite human domination). To not prepare for the end phase (or ideally even consider preventing it, which would be our ultimate ascension) — not just for oneself but for all of us — and to even artificially make life terrible at younger stages through things like exploitation, abuse, solidarity replaced with excessive competition, and the artificially created poverty; is just utterly insane.

It’s also a main reason why so many people seek refuge in religions who promise eternal lives of some kind or another — but without any evidence. Without any evidence whatsoever. How is that different from putting blinders on? (and may I remind you that Buddha, Jesus, and at least partially Muhammad, as far as I have seen, fought for social justice, solidarity, and compassion?)

Well, below is this video you have been warned about. I can easily imagine folks managing not to really get its message (thanks to their blinders and inner mental walls), but if you do, if you try hard enough, you may come to view our world through new eyes and grasp the insanity of our established and institutionalized cultures and customs, and the huge looming vacuum of stuff we should do, should have done, but haven’t. I am reluctant to share it because of the potential pain and the potential mind-blocks raised against grasping the understanding that takes the blinders off. Still… if one person does have the click happen in his or her brain, it may lead to some reasonable actions. So, with hesitance, here it is:

Hope for a Coronavirus-Stimulated Revolution

(Note: the Video Weekends are currently stalled because of my relocation — in the worst case this blog may pause for some weeks while I lack both time and Internet access)

While the current pandemic is being used by the robber billionaires and their political puppets to steal from us what little we have left, some folks point out that this catastrophe can be a perfect situation for us, the people, to revolt and make our world better, as other nationwide or global catastrophes have historically often done. Catastrophes pull people out of their comfort zone and push them over the edge. Some folks even seem to be sure this is going to happen now, even globally.

This would be great, but I frankly am not at all sure the current pandemic is igniting a global revolution, as much as I wish for it. While the U.S. is getting badly mauled by the pandemic and the rich oligarchs are using it as an opportunity to claw away from us the remaining crumbs left after generations of continued stealing from us, most other countries’ governments are actually performing a lot better in protecting their populations, not only from the virus but also the tragic loss of income and housing. So, it seems to me that it is OUR country that should respond with a revolution, and if it did so, it could lead other parts of the world that way like it did in the past.

But, after having been brainwashed for generations, can we still pull this off? I wonder. I hope but wonder. At the very least, I think this will require grassroots activists to get it started, not through violence, but by organizing crisis management at the bottom and thereby connecting us with each other and teaching the large bottom that we must rise and topple the top and shift from the current sociopathic exploitation culture to an egalitarian one of No Rich and No Poor, No Lies or Violence to control and enslave others, no more ignoring of nature’s challenges or fellow people’s suffering, and following the overarching principle of a Good Life for All.

We need a mentality change. And it won’t happen by itself. So, everybody craving for a better world, play your part.

Making Homeowners Homeless via Property Taxes

(Note: the Video Weekends are currently stalled because of my relocation — in the worst case this blog may pause for some weeks while I lack both time and Internet access)

Have you been mulling over a wealth tax? Are you aware of the wrong kind of wealth tax that has long been in place, not to take back from the thieving rich but to ravage people’s shelter from the elements? Listen to this report video and read my comments below:

$600M Property Tax Overcharge Is Eroding Detroit’s Black Homeownership ~ The Real News Network (Jan 16, 2020)

Comments:

While Detroit hit municipal bankruptcy (as other cities will), it is not the only place where property taxes strangle people who oh-so-facetiously claim to need a roof over their heads. It is really terrible how we American people get gouged and mauled from the top (the rich in cahoots with their political puppets). We try hard to escape some of the rentier gouging by getting to own our homes, but the money lords’ banks often demand about twice the homes’ alleged prices in pay when we take a mortgage (because the interests and compound interests can double the price of the loan the banks make possible with money made by them out of thin air). In addition, the banks play games like stock-market-gambling subprime mortgages and also illegitimate foreclosings on people who did make their mortgage payments on time. And communal governments also ravage us even when we finally DO own our homes. Even then we can get evicted and foreclosed, having our home and entire life’s savings taken away in one big swoop “justified” with property taxes that should not be imposed on people’s homes any more than on the air we breathe.

Imagine toiling all your life to own a home so that when you become too old and sick to pay rent you think you will be safe from having paid off your mortgage and escaped bank foreclosure. But then the local town government forecloses on you because you can’t pay its willy-nilly-rated and even inflated property taxes when you cannot earn an income anymore. Honest property tax should be imposed on luxury property only, such as huge private lands, private jets, fleets of giant luxury yachts, and excessive Wall Street stocks. We should get excessive wealth taxed, not people’s shelters from the elements.

And regard the amazing 18% interest rate a town government imposes on tax payment lag at an age where we working people are lucky if we get a mere 1.2% interests on savings (while paying a cash advance interest rate of 36% to a credit card baron). Holy moly! Maybe we need a new inequality term called “money market inequality”, where the money-gambling banksters and other rich creeps and their political puppets can gouge people at 18% interest rates or 36% (or even a lot more*) while people who have to toil for their living can’t even get 2% on any penny-pinching savings if they manage to scrape away some savings at all in this institutionalized inequality system.

* What’s a lot more? Full payment on payday loans is due on the borrower’s next payday, which typically is around two weeks. Payday lenders usually charge interest of $15-$20 for every $100 borrowed (within those 2 weeks!!!). Calculated on an annual percentage rate basis (APR) – the same as is used for credit cards, mortgages, auto loans, etc. – that APR based on late repays then ranges from 391% to more than 521% for payday loans, making desperate poor working people pay the highest loan interests of all — insanely high rates of having to pay back more than five times what you borrowed in some cases! (one info source: https://www.thebalance.com/average-credit-card-interest-rate-4772408 )

We definitely need a proper wealth tax that recovers the accumulated loot of the rich thieves in human society, not home property taxes that steal even more from common people into the pockets of the super rich. Huge systemic inequality is like cancer in human societies. We should all be opposed to it and get rid of it. If any rich person read this, I ask you to look in the mirror while you mull over it.

Videos Exposing the Creepy Billionaires

Dear fiends, I am currently away from home. So this last week I could not check out numerous potentially good new videos of human trouble and people power for change to thereafter share the best I come across. To not leave this weekend blank, here is a reminder of videos shared over three years ago highly revealing the widespread sociopathic corruption, infantility, and inhumanity among the super rich. (yep, I have yet to meet one who can be considered human)

These videos were spread over the popular four-article “Vapid Lives of Destruction” series I published – the link to which can be found in the “More…” menu at the top, but today also right here:

Vapid Lives of Destruction

One of these videos has been removed from YouTube (and apparently the whole Internet) by now, at least by the title it had. Searching for it, I either found it again with a different title, or at least a very similar one:

Lifting the secretive veil on life as a billionaire’s pleasure wife | 60 Minutes Australia ~ 60 Minutes Australia (Oct 23, 2017, length: 11:13)

So, if you saw them already 3 years ago, watching them again as a reminder won’t be a bad idea. And if they are new to you, freshly go for them. 😉
