II. Neoliberalism (cont. fr. Last Week)

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “ON CONTACT: A History of Neoliberalism, Part 2“)

 

III. Fake Charity & Fake Leaders’ Mentality

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Anand Giridharadas, “Winners Take All””)

 

IV. Economic Update

Half the Chinese companies are American corporation subsidies. American farmers are being gravely hurt by the trade war with China. Italy’s new government tries to switch to our living-on-credit economy, failure-proven as it is (put corrupticians tend to go for the after-me-the-flood tactic). Lotteries are a (wasteful) form of taxation (and actually symbolic for our capitalist lottery of life). Successful undergraduate union. Talk with David Harvey: new podcast project (“Anti-Capitalism Chronicles” on iTunes, GooglePlay and at democracyatwork.info/acc), tyranny of a minority over the majority, gridlock gov, new (precarious) exploited working class that needs to organize…

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Economic Update: U.S. Midterm Elections“)

Comment: The midterm elections, as expected, maintained the show of the R & D gridlock on which the olifarchy has so long based its unopposed rule (a gridlocked government can’t oppose them, which gives both bought major parties a out of jail free card with the public).

 

V. Capitalism: Our market can and must be modified

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “We Can—And Must—Reform Capitalism“)

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Stacy Mitchell on Amazon: The 21st Century Railroad Baron“)

VIII. Elections (Voting Parody, Midterms, Fraud)

Voting Parody:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “HOW TO VOTE IN THE MIDTERMS, according to liberals PARODY”)

Note: I heard that Carey Wedler has since been banished by Twitter. Maybe I’ll now get banished on Facebook, Twitter, and such, too, for sharing this video? We’ll see. (Do sign up for free updates from this site to be safe!)

X. World Politics (Israel, Nazi Germany’s Mindset, Russia Mania)

Israel’s nationbal brutality:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Empire Files: Israeli Army Vet’s Exposé – “I Was the Terrorist”“)

Group-think (such as tribal thinking) can turn people evil:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Sonke Neitzel: Mindset of WWII German Soldiers“)

Comment: So, just like Wehrmacht soldiers were made to think that raping women was an OK everyday thing to do, Americans who fall into the right-wing trap can think that separating children from their “illegal” parents, police killing unarmed Afro-Americans (but also others) in the streets or their homes, or condemning working Americans to poverty and blaming them for it, is all an OK everyday thing to do as well. And even wider circles of Americans have been made to think that waging unprovoked war on countless nations and civilians all over the globe is likewise OK an everyday thing to do, with the added bonus of some arms industry jobs (that could instead of sophisticated murder weapons produce a healthy infrastructure, useful peacetime robots, and so forth).

Russiaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The Coolest Look Ever at US-Russia relations“)

 

XI. Immigration/Asylum (The Caravan & Asylum Blockade)

I am sharing this video with a fast forward to the point where it gets most interesting (the prior stuff most of us probably know):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “ICE Holds Record Number of Immigrants, Including 14,000 Children“)

Gist: (1) Trump’s anti-asylum order itself forces refugees to cross the border “illegally” and then be denied asylum because they did what they were forced to do. (2) The reason for flight from Honduras is the U.S. terrorism on their country (most recently under Obama and Hillary Clinton).

 

XII. The Political Slander Game

… believed by people who don’t think for themselves (for example shaming AOC for having been too poor as a worker to now march into Washington like one of the rich boys and girls, or pretending we couldn’t use our tax money for universal healthcare instead of wasting it on an overblown war (a.k.a. “defense”) budget that cannot even account for trillions of its spending):

XIII. Lost in Right-Wing Fascism But Then Getting Out

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “My descent into America’s neo-Nazi movement – and how I got out | Christian Picciolini”)

Comment: I shared this earlier this week in my Thanksgiving post but am sharing it again here in case you missed it.
