I. The Political Minions of the Oligarchy

Meritocracy & “pragmatic” politics: Getting Nothing Done

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Nathan J. Robinson on The Meritocracy Myth”)

 

II. “Woke” Capitalists (The Empire Strikes Back)

Our Moneycrats pretending to be kind to the world:

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

 

III. Stagnant Wages & the End of the Education Moves-You-Up Myth

Our kleptocracy has become so brutal that what we were told in school – that education will raise our working incomes – no longer is true. We ALL get gouged and exploited limitlessly now. Today’s economy is a big slave plantation:

IV. AOC (Competent & Immune to Establishment Smears)

AOC Immune to Establishment Smears

Despite the nearly full control over us developed over a long time, the establishment can still be so full of itself that they shoot themselves in the foot when we challenge them right in the face:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Immune To Right-Wing Attacks, and Here’s Why”)

Note: I referred to the establishment while these media casters referred to the right wing. So, what’s the right wing? It’s the oligarchy at the top (the ruling class among the establishment) and a bunch of dumbos at the bottom of our dungheap society. The latter folks being so clueless that they are easily manipulated from above and gleefully aim their rightful anger at the wrong targets given them by the mafiosi manipulators who ally with the oligarchy to become part of it. It’s the age-old recipe of fascism. Some of the dumbos can wake up and learn how misled they were while others cannot. However, the rest of us who can all learn to see reality for what it is and what solutions to our problems can work, we are the large majority. We just need to mobilize.

 

See how incompetent AOC is – NOT!

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “AOC Hammers Trump Official For Violating The Law”)

Note: A longer video with better audio (easier to catch voices) and a detailed explanation of what this Census thing is all about, is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qL9nXM5A-DQ (shaming the “R” Party again leaving the equally shameful “D” Party unmentioned, though… a trick to watch out for and shield our minds from lest we be manipulated in trusting one of the two corrupt major parties).

 

V. The War on Medicare & Social Security

One of the favorite services by the R Party to the oligarchy:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The Republican War on Social Security (w/ R.J. Eskow)”)

 

The establishment’s lies regarding our healthcare:

VI. A Silver Bullet to Clean up Political Corruption

First a few seconds on Kamala Harris’ corruption and then an interview with Ray Metcalfe exposing the silver bullet with which we can – ifwe use it – clean up our country’s top corruption where practically all elected officials are in the pockets of the ultra rich and their cruel corporations:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the Ralph Nader Radio Hour and the title: “Dancing in the Wonder”, then start listening to it at 27:04minutes in if it hasn’t been clipped)

Note: The segment starting at https://youtu.be/Dar6cYLEG-I?t=2661 describes the first milestone (44:21 min in).

Summary: Bribery is too difficult to prove for anti-corruption laws to be really effective. Conflict of interest, OTOH, is easy to prove. Therefore the effective approach is making it punishable with prison sentences when elected officials don’t recuse themselves when they have a personal conflict of interest working against the public interest. Represent.us should incorporate this sharp weapon (this silver bullet) in their arsenal of comparably blunt weapons. Makes sense to me.

VII. Our War Economy

Some insights on the American mind, forgotten or hardly publicized record size demonstrations for peace, our corrupt political establishment, our Military accounting flaws, the media in cahoots, and so on:

VIII. World Politics: Venezuela

Discussion on Venezuela:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Another Independent Journalist Exposes U.S. News Venezuela Propaganda w/Eva Bartlett”)

If you want another recent video on V, here is another (more or less a summary on much that has previously been shared on this outlet here): Max Blumenthal debunks corporate media lies about Venezuela at United Nations

 

IX. Marx’s Actual Take on Religion

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “AskProfWolff: Is Religion an Opium of the People?”)

 

X. Capitalism Discussions with Economists

The good that new technology could bring (well, acc. to this guy… there are some pluses and minuses mentioned, really):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “The Future of Work Is Going to Be More Human”)

Funny: This (clearly living a privileged life) economist offers as a “solution” a slowdown of overly fast human labor replacement via punitive government measures (laws that make firing people more difficult, slow, or costly), even though he recognizes that sociopaths riding the automation and globalization wave turn themselves into billionaires by capturing the salaries of millions of laid-off workers. Why not argue for reduction in the burden of labor without reduction in income instead, like I do (me arguing for cap-taxing the rich so they cannot rob us blind anymore and moving that money under our feet as a financial safety floor for all of us).

 

The role of technology:

XI. Green New Deal

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “What’s Wrong with the Green New Deal?”)

 

XII. AOC vs Ivanka: Real People vs Silver Spooners

View of the world by those who have had to work in it to survive vs rich girls and boys who have been showered all their lives with gifts and prosperity stolen from the working folks:

XIII. “D”-Party Trickery revealed by an Insider: Why so many candidates? & Silencing Tulsi to Eliminate Bernie

Niko House is one of those rare (former?) “Democratic” Party insider who reveals the inner workings of this corrupt establishment party to the public (I wish there were one doing it with its twin, the establishment “R” Party… if you know such a one, please let me know). He isn’t talking 100% clearly, but when you listen carefully, he lays out the trickery the “Democratic” Party establishment is employing to pull the rug out from under Bernie, just like they did in 2016. They have a plan, an it is well underway. I set the video sharing to start where Niko cuts down to the bone:

XIV. Mindset for a Good World

Not completely comprehensive but good food for thought. We definitely need to set ultimate goals and visions.

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: »”What are you, some kind of COMMUNIST?” My Ideology Explained«)

 

The classical food for emotion:
