Video Weekend 11-18-2017 (9 Videos)

This political video weekend edition covers four subjects: Political Corruption, Economy, Media, and Fresh Thinking

 

I. Political Party Corruption

Can this be real? 5 minutes into this video, reality turns inside out:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Donna Brazile Accidentally Reveals More Than Just DNC Corruption”)

Corruption Anyone? Did you think Donna Brazile was the real deal? Want to really know about corruption in our Twin-Party Tyranny? What if we follow Brazile’s money? Well there you go! Didn’t I tell you she was just another corrupt player?

In case you somehow missed the Donna Brazile revelations, here is a good review:

II. Economy

Consumerism is part of the yoke we live under:

Good interview with David Graeber from 2012 (a good follow-up if you heard his “DEBT: The First 5,000 Years” Google Talk or read my commentary on Wednesday:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Debt: The First 5000 Years – Extended Interview”)

Interesting thought: “Anarchy is democracy without a government.”

An Older (February) but Good Show on Immigrant Rights, Tim Black, Trump, and Basic Income (at 22:29 minutes). Especially the latter (at 22:29 minutes) is worth hearing as on of the best talking takes on UBI this year:

One point I’d like to add: a basic income is essentially a citizen dividend on our mutually owned country, as opposed to all dividends currently only going to the rich and well-to-do.

 

III. Media

Enlightening interview (media not beholden to our corporations and deep state are where we can get unfiltered U.S. news from; that includes defamed FOREIGN media):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Abby Martin Exposes Untold History of U.S. Empire “)

Another alternative to censored corporate MSM and social media: Desperate exploited workers hide calls for help in their products:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Sweatshop Workers Sabotage Clothing”)

Despair, the grand old mother of invention…

 

IV. Rethinking our World

Thinking outside the box is necessary for any successful revolution. There can be no real change unless we change our thinking. According to thise speaker, 95% of the time people run on autopilot (essentially not thinking at all). When they do think, they usually think inside the box, typically a very small box. So, just as this gentleman suggests to business people, in politics, if we want real change for our country, we must likewise begin to think outside the box (a new party, a cross-party people’s coalition bringing in many third parties, not just voting but fixing our bad and rigged electoral system to have integrity and full representation through things like public campaign financing, publicly and oppositional counting of paper ballots, ranked choice or scored voting, a universal basic income combined with a federal job guarantee plus equitably shared national assets and a maximum income instead of merely raising the minimum wage…):

And talking about public campaign financing:

A People’s Candidate Reveals the Boon of Public Campaign Financing (13:52 – 15:45):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “This 2018 Progressive Candidate Has Her Pro-Wall Street Opponent SHOOK”)

Addendum: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has won the primaries! 🙂  (+followup-analysis)
