I. The Choice between Hell or Heaven on Earth

So much good stuff said in so few words:

II. The Global Oligarchy (Thom Hartmann)

As Chris Hedges has said, our country has been colonized by its own empire. In this clip from 2013, Thom Hartmann reveals some fairly little known history of devious deals between foreign lords with our domestic lords, in this case Republican power peddlers (I report a lot on “Democratic” power peddlers to help us drop the illusion that the “Democratic” Party serves American non-rich people, but don’t think for a moment that the Repub career politicians are any more ethical or patriotic):

The point: We, the people of the world, are being deceived, controlled, enslaved, and gouged from the top of a global wealth and power pyramid. It is an evil system we must firmly reject.

Part 2:

Important to notice that our most agressive progressive tax rates were not nearly high enough to end the plutocracy (= money aristocracy) which used its obsence wealth to buy up the government, stop democracy, turn the state coffers into its cash cow while slashing government services for the people, wage wars for profit, and ruin our nation getting us to the dismal state of today with a fire sale going on right now in the highest seats of power:

Inequality Nation & Dynastic Wealth:

… not only in the U.S. but almost everywhere. That’s where the chant “workers of the world unite” comes from. Comparing our money aristocracy with that in outher countries (and the jetsetting aspect of them storing much of their wealth in offshore tax havens) can open our eyes a little further.

III. The Corrupt Corporate State & Fascism

Two years old but still utterly relevant and on the spot. Chris Hedges and author David Cay Johnson discuss the corruption and unamericaness of our corporate state that denies life, liberty, and the persuit of happiness to the majority of Americans by taking from the many to give to the few and placing the rich above the law. The rich then become a class of demons of which Trump is only a symptom. And, yet, as if things were not bad enough, demagogues like him using tried and true fascist lies, voter bait, and brainwashing methods promise to make things better while actually making them worse, exploiting the widespread public ignorance cultivated by the corporate state.

U.S. politics: elevating liars & crooks:

IV. Another Toy For The Rich

Where the wealth goes that they take from us:

V. Middle Class Struggles

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The death of America’s middle class: Sky-high rent, second jobs, and 1% TV | Alissa Quart”)

Conclusion: the “Middle Class” has joined the underclass who had to struggle like this all along, and that in a world of wealth and knowhow to have prosperity for all.

 

VI. Corporate Corruption

… and the founding principles of our nation clash. Law & justice in conflict with callous corporations:

VII. Election Rigging

U.S. standard election theft:

It’s been going on for ages and keeps getting worse. By international standards we are way at the bottom of election integrity, and that despite the fact that ensuring trustworthy elections is quite simple to do and proven over centuries (you just count in public and instantly do a verify count by opposing candidacy teams). Are we Americans finally waking up to this?

Continued (interviewing the other guy):

Duopoly election rigging alive and well:

VIII. Healthcare

Finally a Hollywood celebrity who gets it (besides Susan Sarandon and Viggo Mortensen)

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Rational National and the title: “Jim Carrey w/ Bill Maher: Canadians Are Nice Because We Have Healthcare”)

 

IX. Rogue Nation U.S.A.

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Naomi Karavani and the title: “WEB EXCLUSIVE: US Spits In Face Of War Crimes Court”)

 

X. Digital Book Burning

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas and the title: “Digital Book Burning! Google, Facebook, Youtube Censoring At BREATHTAKING UNBELIEVABLE Level”)

Comment: This is why we must all get active sharing marginalized news and ideas that we need to create a uncorrupted world and good life for all. (Hint: share articles from siteslike Beanstock’s World. The more of us share, the less we can be blocked and censored.)

 

XI. Blood-Sucking Capitalism (Not Just Bezos)

The list of welfare queen corporations is long:

XII. Tulsi Gabbard

… providing some insights in a talk with Jimmy Dore:
