Video Weekend 12-09-2017 (8 Videos) — With a lot of Wolffish Excellence

Lee Camp, Richard Wolff, and Laura Flanders have gifted us with eight informative videos about censorship, false choices in politics, immigration, inequality, readiness for a new American Revolution, the immorality at the heart of capitalism, and the many benefits of a universal basic income (UBI). This time there are a lot of rich and short recent videos by Richard Wolff in the mix. One could say, this video weekend is Wolff-themed. He produced a lot of great clips recently. Bravo! Perhaps I should have titled this weekend’s video collection “Wolff Rocks.” 😉

 

I. Redacted Tonight: (A) uncensored news, (B) America is ripe for the 2nd American Revolution

Project Censored / Revolution Scientifically Around The Corner

VI. Is it the starvling immigrant or your despicable boss (replacing you on your job to cut wages by half) who needs to be kicked off his throne?

VII. I, too, experienced despicable behavior in academia (and therefore left it). So this academic censorship doesn’t surprise me at all:

VIII. Many solid arguments for a UBI:

Big point made: In our current system we are forced to work in paid jobs at the pain of death (“Work or die homeless and starving!”). How is that American? Wasn’t our country founded on the promise of liberty? Isn’t such serfdom exactly why America’s settlers left their home countries?
