I. Climate Change is Reversible! (reason for hope)

Quite astounding: the top changes that will reverse it — not what most of us think. And very doable (the top measures start 9:05 min in).

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Ralph Nader, Paul Hawken , and the title: “Global Warming Is Reversible“)

Fascism as Flattery

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Yuval Noah Harari and the title: “Why fascism is so tempting – and how your data could power it | Yuval Noah Harari“)

Comment: This thought aligns more or less with the summary I have gleaned from studying fascism, namely it having two main populations: (1) thugs running the show for personal gain of power and wealth, and (2) followers who join out of a hunger for a sense of belonging (to a group that accepts them when all others seem to turn away) and elevation (above others) or protection of their own personal privilege (no matter how small it is).

 

IV. Corporate Rule (U.S. lawlessness)

The U.S. of Lawlessness

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Ralph Nader and the title: “Institutionalizing Lawlessness: Systematically Subverting Markets“)

Global Capitalism and the OTHER Immigration (documentary)

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “China’s Millionaire Migration”)

The Rich Causing Poverty (documentary)

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Park Avenue: money, power and the American dream – Why Poverty?“)

Special highlights:

28 min: America’s alleged liberty = freedom for the people’s oppressors

40:15: Taxes are the price of civilization. (and our corporations and rich evade them)

46:26: sociopathic wealth entitlement mentality, the inverted makers-takers concept, defiling of civilization, and pitting the middle class against the lower class

Comment: America’s capitalist dogma of “opportunity” is a grand fraud. Capitalism makes a few rich by making many poor. Do we really want an opportunity to get rich by making others poor? Is that truly our “moral” code or merely the personality disorder pushed down on us from above? Huge wealth and poverty are both caused by sociopathic greed. Without a functioning democracy all the gains of our economy will continue to be sucked to the top leaving the rest of us (the working us!!!) in drags.

XIV. (Anti)-Doomsday Economics (MMT, Stephanie Kelton…)

Who profits from the lie that our government is financially bankrupt? The rich stealing public funds and evading taxes, that’s who. Is our government out of money? No! Rather, it’s all about spending for the people, communities, and our one and only planet, not against them:
