I. (Un)Fair Society

A fair socio-economic system would place a safety floor under everybody instead of tormenting struggling people with a callous bureaucracy and turning middle and low income earners against each other (so the rich can laugh on their way to the bank):

II. U.S. History of Fighting for a Fair Society

Wow, even wealth taxation which I keep promoting as the most important key strategy for flattening the wealth pyramid and dethroning the oligarchy actually happened before in our nation (though nearly not enough), and even capping wealth which is how far wealth taxation must go was considered before:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Mark Steiner, D.D. Guttenplan, and the title: “The Next Republic: The Rise Of A New Radical Majority”)

Comment: I disagree with the stuff said around 22 minutes in (the defense of identity politics). The author then back paddles, suggesting that the identity splinter movements join. I would caution not to leave out the working class white males. My approach is aiming for a fair country and good life for all regardless of race, ethnicity, origin, gender, sexuality, age, or any other divisive distinction. Is it really so hard to say Medicare for ALL, free college for ALL, Social Security for ALL, Bill of Rights for ALL…?

 

III. Medicare vs the Robber Billionaires

Good conversation. The ~2nd half is best:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for RJ Eskow, and the title: “Alex Lawson: Medicare For All VS The Billionaires”)

 

IV. Economic Update

U.S. Healthcare the least efficient in the world (benefits over costs). A marvelous demonstration in Poland finally showing public understanding of the rigged system. Germany and other nations replacing the U.S. in China deals. And the way the American working people were manipulated by the owner class during and after World War II (the beginning of our downward slide):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Richard Wolff, Harriet Fraad, and the title: “Economic Update: Public Policy, Private Pain”)

 

V. Money in the Economy Explained (incl. MMT)

The government doesn’t need our money. We need the government’s money. It prints it and should spend it wisely rather than on the oligarchy.

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Stephanie Kelton, Jimmy Dore, and the title: “What Is MMT And How It Works w/Stephanie Kelton”)

 

VI. Public Banking for a Better World

Another way to take the corruption out of our economy:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Josh Androsky, Lee Camp, and the title: “[129] A New Way To Stop The Big Banks”)

 

VII. News (Trade Deal, ‘elite’ SCOTUS Picks, Tax Scams, U.S. Syrian Raid)

 

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Lee Camp et al., and the title: “~215~ Trade Deal Leaked, Kavanaugh Secrets, Syria Truth Revealed”)

 

VIII. Progressives vs SJW Corporatist “Dems”

 

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Mike Figueredo, and the title: “Ocasio-Cortez & Ilhan Omar Identify the “Trap” Dems Keep Falling In”)

 

IX. RW: Hate-Filled Groups Happily fight for the Oligarchy

It’s always been that way. The scum of society, filled with hate and intolerance, are up for grabs by the money aristocracy to do the dirty work for them. It takes a certain degree of maturity to (A) slough off violent and intolerant primitive instincts and (B) to see the big picture and realize one is being bought by a devious ruling class. Those pooling in the right-wing cesspool don’t have that maturity, or they wouldn’t be in it.

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thom Hartmann, and the title: “Are Republicans Getting Away Inflaming Civil Unrest”)

Note: The one group they forget to mention are the upper middle-classers who regard everybody below them as beneath their notice (so they have no compassion for them) and are easily riled up against them when the oligarchs shift the tax burden away from themselves and on the middle class and then blame the poor receiving government aid for the size of taxes. The upper middle-classers disregarding those below want to “conserve” their limited wealth and privilege (hence ranking as “conservatives”) and will vote for any politicians or laws intending to cut social services an promising lower taxes.

 

X. RW: Evil ‘Elite’ Mindsets

Justify the evil ways of maintaining your privilege by cherrypicking warped mentalities. Bingo!

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thom Hartmann, Jeff Sharlet, and the title: “Beyond the Voice of the People : The Far Right Fundamentalist “Family””)

Note: It sounds like some crazy conspiracy theory, doesn’t it? However, this info comes from a journalist of a long established good publication. And is it really surprising that warped right-wing mentalities not only exist in the dumb part of society’s bottom and middle but also at the top which is served by them, after all?

 

XI. Movement for a People’s Party

MPP just released a series of short, trailer-size videos describing what it stands for. It’s planned mission statement for our country: maximizing human well-being. Very worth watching:

(Note: If these video links gets deleted, you may search the Internet for MPP, Part, and the titles: “What We Stand For”, “Is There a Precedent?”, “Nick‘s Journey”, “Enter Bernie”, “The Mourning AfteR”, “Origins of The People‘s Party”)

Conclusion: In the days of our nation’s founding, the people rose up to cut themselves loose from the tyranny of King George. They also began working on establishing democracy and other parts of a just and fair society guaranteeing well-being for all. But then the existing domestic rich did an inside job taking over the political power through bribing officials and establishing corrupt political parties that have been controlling us ever since. It’s time that we, the people, rise up again for a second American Revolution which picks up where the first left off. We can do it without bloodshed this time, through political and economic means. Let’s do it. Power to the People!
