Political Awakening Video Weekend 01-05-2019 (16 videos)

Our mentality is the basis for deprivation or change. This video compilation digs into a lot of that as well as other important things like fake politics, harmful economics, and Medicare for All as a fighting ground to democratize our economy (by Kelly Coogan-Gehr from National Nurses United), and so forth. — Information like this, which you never see on the mainstream media, is the education we need to bring about positive change.

I. Mentality for Change

Learning from Other Countries how wrong American libertarianism, jingoism, and many preconceptions that things can’t be better than we know them are:

II. Our Destructive System

… well explained by Robert Wolff in an interview that went better than I expected, touching on the built in destructiveness of our system, on MMT (good, correct, but needing to go a bit farther), the tragedy of student loans, the idiotic fascist-style blaming of foreigners… It’s darn good:

III. The Anti-Left “Democrats”

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Wall Street Democrats & Donors Meet & Plot To Derail Bernie Sanders Wing & Policy Objectives”)

 

IV. The Alleged Progressive Wave in the “D” Party

All but three “Democrats” voted for a massive barrier against Medicare for All, expanded Social Security, free college, federal job programs or whatever the American people need and demand. So much for the alleged progressive takeover of the “Democratic” Party from within. Corporatist crooks calling themselves progressives doesn’t make them progressives. It’s the actions, not the campaign promises, which count:

A bit more on it if the barrier isn’t clear enough, yet:

V. Sick Mentality: Money, Status, & Pride

It kind of belongs in the next topic collection below, but in a way this prankish video is its own thing, unscientific, weird, artificial, and… quite scary:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “WHAT IF THE HOMELESS GAVE YOU MONEY?”)

Money has really warped humanity, hasn’t it?

So, now we may be ready for the next videos, a scientific study and a considerably more friendly street test:

 

VI. Sick & Healthy Mentality: Generosity vs Greed

We need a less stratified society to live more human lives:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Why Those Who Feel They Have More Give Less”)

Unexpected generosity can reveal our deeply buried sadness and loss of human connection:

VII. Democratizing Healthcare & the Economy

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Medicare for All is a Fight to Democratize the Economy “)

 

VIII. Encouragement for 2019

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “How 2019 Could Be a Game Changer for Progressives”)

 

IX. Government For or Against the People

Government Corruption
The corruption which our capitalist system creates, bringing the worst out in people, pushing our humanity in a dark corner, has clearly taken over much of our government, as well. Aside from tax breaks forthe rich, corporate wellfare, cutting public spending, and rigging elections, there is also the imperial state (with much of the part called “deep state” in play, such as the CIA and our federal courts) torturing people, running illegal wars, and perscuting whistleblowers:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Whistleblower Crackdown & John Kiriakou”)

Government for the People or the Rich?

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Ralph Nader Debunks “Spoiler Vote” Shaming pt. 1”)

 

X. Secret Wall Street Bail-Outs

Not only bank bail-outs and government subsidies given to corporations and tax breaks for their rich owners, but also secret stock market bail-outs they don’t even tell us about (bailing out the rich gamblers in their stocks casino with our money):

Vocab: “Plunge Protection Team”

 

XI. World Politics: Brazil

Brazil’s fascist “soft” coup:

XII. Robots and Ethics

We have to insert ethics into the process of our national and global development (our economics and politics, our way of thinking) if we are to go the correct route:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “AI Should Improve Quality of Life, Not Make Capitalists Rich – Lester Earnest on RAI (5/5)”)

It’s almost ironic. When science fiction writers like Isaac Asimov wrote in the last century about our coming robotized future, they stipulated a main programming rule prohibiting the killing or hurting of humans. And what do our governments and developers develop now? Killer robots. Giving them a different name (drones) isn’t a cure for this utterly insane evil that is bound to stab us all in the back.

 

XIII. AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez)

Gee. I want to see all the young people dance for joy over a bright rather than dark future.
