I. Yellow Vests News

France’s Anger

Who is Behind The Yellow Vests:

Everyone angry. The result when everyone is mauled from the top.

II. War, Morals, Veterans for Peace

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “[137] Veterans Fighting For Peace w/ Matt Hoh“)

 

III. Hypernormalization

Turning abnormality into the accepted normal, mind control and data mining… (the latter half of this clip is mostly about the gaming industry, prolly less interesting for most of us, but the preceding stuff is powerful info, a kind of biography of a man who underwent a lot of mental warping and describes it well):

IV. Election Meddling

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Intercept and the title: “A Short History of U.S. Meddling in Foreign Elections”)

Comment: The one thing he leaves out, though, is the by far biggest meddling of all, which is domestic. (like the DNC the 2016 primaries from Bernie Sanders (and the American People!!!) so he wouldn’t be on the November ballot, to mention just one example among many)

 

V. Refugees: Fleeing U.S. Dirty Wars in Central America

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “A Brief History of U.S. Dirty Wars in Central America That Set the Stage for the Refugee Crisis”)

 

VI. Filling the Swamp (Mnuchin)

One of the principal creators of the 2008 Crash and Great Recession is now the Treasury Secretary (some swamp draining, huh?):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Why is the Foreclosure King is Running The Treasury (w/ David Dayen)“)

 

VII. Cool Conversation (Paul Jay, RoseAnn De Moro, John Cusack, and Bob Pollin)

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “We Can’t Separate Climate Justice from Opposing Militarism“)

 

VIII. The Young Climate Activists

IX. Ancient Capitalism & Debt Forgiveness

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “On Contact: The history of debt forgiveness“)

 

X. Economic Update

World Food, Wage-Slave Loneliness, Bankster System, American Worker Co-Op

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Economic Update: Cooperation Jackson: A Closer Look“)

 

XI. Real vs False Socialism

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “AskProfWolff: How was socialism defined in the USSR and the People’s Republic of China?“)

Comment: One might even compare the move from scattered private capitalism to state capitalism with the move from scattered feudalism to absolutism. The move only takes you from being a serf owned by your local baron or duke to one being owned by the far away king or emperor (or both, actually). Big deal of a difference, no? Also, capitalism is essentially a modernized version of feudalism where green blood replaces blue blood, any kind of capital replace the more constricted capital of land ownership. Because of the theoretical vertical mobility, capitalism was seen by some as a relief from feudalism in its early days. However, since it is mostly theoretical, the rags to riches story being a rare event and usually coupled with criminal level callousness and worker abuse and doing nothing to end poverty, and with its frequent and ever bigger economic crashes, capitalism is finally losing street cred, and justly so.

 

XII. A Rare Celebrity

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Bruce Springsteen Says Democrats Are Out Of Touch“)

 

XIII. The Russiagate Hype

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Nate Silver DeBunks Russian Influence On Election“)

 

XIV. Popularity of the Green New Deal

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is EXTREMELY Popular “)

Comment: And many thanks to the Green Party that has been pushing for the Green New Deal (not merely the Greenish New Deal the “Democratic Party” is now trying to camouflage its neoliberal corporatism with).

 

XV. Why We Work so Hard Under Capitalism

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Why are you working 8 hours per day?“)

 

XVI. Capitalism, the Scam

A historic review and lot to process, but quite entertaining and fun…

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Capitalism is a friggin’ SCAM that’s making us poor “)
