I. AOC & Bill Nye – Wow! (and more)

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “AOC Surprised by Bill Nye at SXSW”)

Summary: Not one person paying painfully for another, but investing in a great future for us all. We can all win together. No more hopeless cringing. Time for courage and change.

 

Oh, and AOC has more to say, indeed:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Ocasio-Cortez: Is Capitalism Redeemable? #SWSW19 #AOC”)

 

Another good point (about our decline over decades and the warping of the “D” Party):

Comment on the Minimum Wage: This is in itself one of those band-aid hand-outs from the ruling robber billionaires and their millionaire minions and political handmaidens. Think about it. Someone who is long-term ill cannot work for any wage no matter what minimum as been set. Someone who is totally occupied caring for a sick parent or child cannot work for any wage. Meanwhile at least half of our productivity’s money flows to the rich who are not creating this wealth through their labor. Redirecting this misdirected prosperity back to us all makes a lot more sense than minimum wages. Social Security for All financed through this redirection would (A) support a lot more people needing and deserving this support and it would also deprive the money aristocracy of the dough with which they bribe governments into their pocket and democracy out of existence.

 

The entire SXSW meeting seems to be recorded here (I have yet to find the time to watch its full length):

Not to forget, though, AOC and many awakened “progressives” don’t yet see far enough or aim high enough:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s 70% Marginal Tax Rate Isn’t Radical | Op-Ed | NowThis”)

 

Clearly we must be careful not to be appeased with too little too late or even support a way too small tax rate for the rich (and without a 100% cap) with only a small majority. We should all want this, and – yes – with a 100% cap at some level to get rid of the rich oligarchs:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Poll Proves That A 70% Marginal Tax Rate Is Hugely Popular, NOT Extreme”)

Comment: AOC is great. So are those who support her. Still we have further to go, yet.

 

II. Why Capitalism Sucks (3 spiffy videos)

The continuation of yesterday’s post (The Smooth Way Out of Capitalism):

Why Capitalism Sucks 1/3: Capitalism, the new Feudalism

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Here’s why capitalism SUCKS! – and why it needs to end!”)

 

Why Capitalism Sucks 2/3: The Class War from the Top (OR Outsourcing, Automation, and the Systemic Corruption in Capitalism)

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Welcome to the CLASS WAR! – Why Capitalism SUCKS – Part 2”)

 

Why capitalism sucks 3/3: Capitalist Competition = Fight AGAINST Each Other

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Capitalism severs us from our own humanity | Why Capitalism Sucks Part 3”)

 

III. Rebelling against Human Extinction

IV. Empire (Plot against Venezuela, U.S. Colonies, & the Alternative)

Dark Plot Against Venezuela

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Regime Change Via Sanctions? U.S. Uses International Finance System to Strangle Venezuelan Economy”)

Note: Let’s not forget that it isn’t us Americans, not you and me, who are weaving these dark plots to steal the oil from other countries. It is the global oligarchy that has subjugated pretty much all countries, including ours, and uses our country as its military ad embargo base wasting American soldier lives in the process whenever economic sanctions and CIA-made election meddling and fascist movements, coups, terrorism, assassinations, and civil war staging or generation of wars with bought and weaponized neighboring countries (Columbia and Brazil in the case of Venezuela, Israel and Saudi Arabia in the Middle East) don’t do the trick.

 

Who gets to appoint a national leader?

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Ilhan Omar Bravely Calls Out Dem Leadership On Venezuela”)

 

The big secret about Venezuela (It helping us!):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Venezuela Aided Poor Americans With Free Heating Oil”)

Note: That’s what you can get out of a nationalized oil company run by a socialist-leaning government.

 

The True U.S. Map, U.S. Colonies, & Their Human Abuse

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: ““How to Hide an Empire”: Daniel Immerwahr on the History of the Greater United States”)

 

The Alternative to an Evil Empire: What if we transformed into the shining beacon of the world?

What if we ended cruel empires and led the way to a Good World for All reshaping ourselves into a just and prosperous society ensuring a good life for all and liberated from the world’s oligarchs?

V. Media War

We all despise the corrupt corporate media:

VI. Whistle Blower War

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Chelsea Manning Jailed Again For Protecting Journalism”)

 

VII. Hope from Action: AMAZING World-Wide School Kids’ Climate Protests

Summary:

School Kids Across the Globe Protesting the Climate Catastrophe in the Streets:

The girl that started it:

Comments:

  • I am so impressed by and hopeful of the young today.
  • Answer to her question of why we are not reducing our emissions: Because we live in a capitalist oligarchy, a system hell-bent on transferring wealth to the top, having this top of global billionaires making all the big decisions, and having no regard whatsoever for the negative consequences, even if they end up killing us all, not to mention the enormous suffering along the way.
  • And she is so correct. We have to change the rules.
