Woke Video Weekend 2019-07-07 (20 videos)

Twenty of the best videos published and found this week, many especially useful in advancing our mindset, understanding what is really going on in our rigged system, and the directional change we – the people – can and must take. The official reality we have been taught is not very real, and underneath attractive varnish dark secrets hide. And we are much closer to the change we long for than we realize. If only we step out of our box. Many stars in this week’s compilation you have never seen or heard of before. A lot of new stuff to discover. And it starts out with a great satire!

I. Satire: The Two-Party One-Party System

… and the waste-your-vote-by-voting-for-what-you-want myth reflected in Australia:

II. Deep Insight: The New Deal’s Secret

A really important thing to know:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for John Spritzler and the title: “FDR Feared What Would Happen If He Didn’t Implement the New Deal“)

 

III. News: The Toilet Toast

To your health, asylum seekers. Drink from the toilet!

IV. Debates: Debate Rigging

Debate Rigging Tricks

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for MCSC Network W/ Niko House and the title: “BREAKING: Tulsi’s Sister Dunks On MSNBC’s Warren Bias During The Debate”)

The Professional Wrestling Shows of Primary Dabates

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Jimmy Dore Show and the title: “Tulsi Got Med4All Question Right! Warren & Harris FAIL”)

Rigged Interviews and Debates
Jimmy, Stef Zamorano, and Graham Elwood forming a neat panel at a comedic meet-up:

V. Surveillance & Censorship

Surveillance Scoring
This is in no way surprising to me. I was forced in to an eCommerce course and the instructor and most participants had no morals at all. Maximizing profits bu any way possible, is their only focus. Money is their god.

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Ralph Nader Radio Hour and the title: “Strength Through Peace/Surveillance Scoring”)

But, very important: What most people, including Ralph Nader apparently, are unaware of is the dark side of supposed privacy and consumer protection laws for the Internet, namely the abolishment of free speech and democracy. In the next video, Yanis Varoufakis (who may only have a partial understanding of this horror of the new European Union Internet law, probably soon coming for us) exposes this problem:

More Censorship Coming (by Law!)
Often times in the past, draconian measures were started in the U.S. and then copied across the globe. But sometimes, other places like Europe take the lead. A year ago, a draconian Internet law was implemented in the European Union, allegedly to protect online consumers and protect Internet surfing people’s privacy. I think Yanis Varoufakis may be talking about some follow-up that does little more than kick a dead horse. Still, he gets and exposes the problem, unlike most Europeans who are sleeping through the whole operation.

Basically, in Europe, anybody putting any content on the Internet nowadays can be punished with over $20 million for sharing content, for not putting up meaningless notices or for mis-formulating them, or for not coupling posted content with his or her living address (forced to be put on the Internet right in the face of potential assassins and blackmailing attorneys – at least in German speaking countries), and for all sorts of banalities. This includes being punished for the devious surveillance performed by corporations like Facebook when one dared to put their social media sharing button on one’s web page (instead of the guilty corporations being punished for their misdeeds).

Among the few Europeans who are not sleeping through the whole process, the majority are upset only about the draconian new laws’ copyright part that may make things like meme sharing on social media on their smartphones risky. The laws are much more broadly harmful, though. This is why we keep getting harassed with cookie policy pop-ups on ever more websites, by the way. And, sadly, other parts of the world are beginning to follow these steps. Japan and California, for example have enacted similar laws already. And I heard that in D.C. there are some moves underway, too. In this brief clip, Yanis Varoufakis argues against these censorship laws that masquerade behind privacy protection, copyright protection, consumer protection and similar lame excuses:

VI. Bernie: Why & How Attacked by the Mass Media

Media: Selfish Fake Experts Playing with Your Head
… turning the truth upside down for their own profit:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Rational National and the title: “MSNBC Guest: ‘Bernie’s Problem Is That He’s Too Consistent’”)

Bernie’s Grassroots Fundraising Attacked by the Media
Do the oligarchy puppets get lots of campaign funds? Sure. But doesn’t it matter a lot more that a people’s champion like Bernie gets lots and lots of VOTERS flooding to him rather than moneycrats’ bribe money with which to try and wrestle for some voters with TV ads?

Bernie’s Consistently Good Fight Attacked by the Media

VII. Bernie on Iran, SA, and Warmongering Lies

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Secular Talk and the title: “Bernie Brings Up History Of Pro-Wár Lies On MSNBC”)

 

VIII. Capitalism: Why & How our Jobs Screw Us

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Rational National and the title: “Economist Explains How Your Job Is Screwing You”)

 

IX. Revolutions Getting Hijacked

…when people lack ideas (video set to start where the main point gets started):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Russell Brand and the title: “Who Really Runs The World? – Russell Brand & Yuval Noah Harari”)

 

X. Connectedness: Conservative Learning and Turning

Of course, those of us who are poor also have to worry about making ends meet. But, still, our disconnectedness in this atomized age (of “rugged-individualism”, a.k.a. not caring about others) is a big problem.

XI. Woke: A Former Right-Wing Reagan Official Turning on Capitalism

… and neoconservatism/neoliberalism. In the 80‘s he was “keeper of the Reagan flame”, Reagan’s paladin of the trickle down BS and tax breaks for the rich; but as time went by and life went on (a process which at least in former times often resulted in the gaining of wisdom) the flaws of our system began to dawn on him. This, then, is quite a surprising interview of a former right-wing tool in our national and worldwide descent:

XII. Woke: Another Right-Winger Getting DEPROGRAMMED

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for David Pakman Show and the title: “Another Right-Winger Gets DEPROGRAMMED”)

 

XIII. Woke: Our Self-Silencing Culture

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for TEDx Talks and the title: “Lessons from Nursing to the World | Kathleen Bartholomew | TEDxSanJuanIsland”)

 

XIV. Mohammed, Christ, and Buddha: Were they Theologists or Socialist Revolutionairies?

A really interesting claim made by someone who studies religious histories:
