1. Satire: “Honest Government Ad” on Climate

Humor helps dealing with serious problems. It decreases resignation and boosts persistence and strength needed in the fight for the much needed change. In addition, discovering the absurdity of ongoing policies is often easier when looking at other countries as we can take a view not so obscured by cultivated preconceptions. Hence here is another amusing piece from Australia:

I like a comment that was left on this video on Youtube:

You’ve never failed to impress me with every single one of your ‘honest government ads’

The salt is real.

The anger is real.

The satire is real.

I love you.

 

2. The Climate Calamity

 

An emotional Deutsche Welle Documentary:

3. The Corporate Coup D’Etat: NAFTA, not Russiahhh

EXPLAINED: Inside The Corporate Coup D’Etat’ That’s Created a New Gilded Age

Status Coup

Point: Globalism isn’t a natural event. It is transnational corporations overruling and neutralizing national governments to shift all the wealth and power to a global ruling class, stealing everything in this world from the rest of us. And you never hear about it in the corporate mass media because their Wall Street puppets, just like those in politics, live in their privileged bubbles too remote from us suffering people to know what is being done to us and themselves richly rewarded with a good financial life and high status for their work of putting varnish over it all. (hence a need to use and support alternative media like Beanstock’s World and the many others shared here)

 

4. Disney Worker Abuse

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for “Democracy Now!” and the title: “Happiest Place on Earth? Disney Heiress Speaks Out Against Disneyland’s Abuse of Workers”)

The followup video cannot be shared here apparently; only watched on democracynow.org: https://www.democracynow.org/2019/7/18/disney_heiress_meets_with_disneyland_workers_calls

Comment: I wonder about unaddressed questions: Can’t this Disney heir get this sociopathic CEO removed (if not, why not)? And what is the size of her unearned (a.k.a. inherited) income from Disney dividends? Her home looked really nice and big. Just wondering.

 

5. No Rich and No Poor

The why and how to act:

6. Socialism, Democracy, Capitalism & and Fascism

Socialism & Democracy

Economic Update: Socialism & Worker Co-Ops
Democracy At Work

Much of this has already been shared here many times, but at 25:29 less commonly shared points are made having to do with democratic workplaces.

 

Socialist & Capitalist Contradictions ***

A man who lived through it all (U.S., USSR, and the FRG) telling of the weird contradictions between having ~democracy/choice/voice/security in either the labor market and our economic needs (like food, healthcare, education, and housing) or in the political sphere but not both:

7. The Recession We Are In

Have you by any chance been believing the false claims of the establishment that we have recovered from the Great Recession that hit us in 2008? All that cheering over stock markets that you and I can’t participate in? Or all that cheering about low unemployment numbers (that are completely faked by simply not counting the long-term unemployed among us and also totally overlook the shabby gig jobs we have to work nowadays to barely survive)? Well, if you have been so willingly duped, listen to some critical numbers in this short clip:

8. Healthcare Profiteering: The Anesthesia Racket

BROKEN Healthcare System Leads To Very Painful Anesthesia-Free Surgery
Secular Talk

In America anesthesia seems to be in the healthcare industry what beverages are in restaurants: cheaply provided (no cooking or kitchen needed) and expensively sold for a quick profit. Does the anesthesiologist earn about $6,000 for a single use case? I doubt it. Just a way for hospitals to rake up their charges.

 

9. Candidates: Warren (Bad) & Tulsi (Good)

Elizabeth Warren, the oh so FAKE Progressive

The establishment (incl. Daily Kos) has been trying for years to impose Elizabeth Warren on us as the next false hope & change Obama. “Yeah, you people who need and demand change, go ahead and accept our talk-some-of-the-talk Wall Street puppet.” Hmpf. Remember how she endorsed $Hillary instead of Bernie in 2016? Or how she’s been claiming in her current campaign not to take rich moneycrats’ Big Money? Well, find out how trur that is … NOT:

11. U.S. Terror Across the World

If only people making these reports would stop using “we” when they describe the America-occupying oligarchy that we must unite to fight. But everything else is correct. The level of globel military terrorism based in our country without our majoritarian consent by a global oligarchy does make us feared and hated across the globe, and we must fight to stop this evil done in our name:

12. Beware the Oligarchy

A lesson from a century ago:

Smeadly Butler Reveals Coup Attempt Against FDR — The Political Vigilante
Graham Elwood

Considering how long the oligarchy has been oppressing and manipulating us from the top, it’s really no mystery that so many people are so misinformed about our rigged system (taught to celebrate capitalism rather than recognizing it for the crappy hierarchy it is in which some people benefit an astronomic lot at the painful expense of everyone else), or all the smears of socialism and persecution (even executions) of people who fought for decent lives for the working people…

 

13. Oppression with Science

Our oligarchy uses corrupt scientists to control us through sociological and psychological manipulation. It is yet another reason why it is not enough for us to wake up and demand change. We also must figure out tactics, strategies, and the much improved structure of our society (incl. economy and politics) that we need to apply and aim for.

14. Any Blue Like Any Red

Conclusion: We must pull the rug out from under both corrupt parties. Imagine starting a true people’s party

 

15. Perspective & Racism: A Distraction by the ‘Elites’

I feel she downplays our racism a little too much (skipping over the treatment of Native Americans, for example), but she is right on all major points, such as that racism is oftenworse in other countries (and especially among young people, working in schools, I have seen a lot of disappearance of racism and sexual divisionalism (the fuel for distractive identity politics)) and especially that our main fight is with the Big Money interests, the ones I tend to call our oligarchy, our money aristocracy, or the robber billionaires. They and their rigged system that is a caged treadmill in which we are condemned to waste away our lives, are the roots of all our troubles, including the remnants of our racism stirred up by these monsters in order to divide and conquer.

Racism Is Being Used As A Distraction By The Elites
Kim Iversen

Kim is perfectly correct: We need to keep things in perspective. If you have been visiting here before, you probably have come across this before in my writings and sharings. Great Kim Iversen quote from this video (her last finishing words): “The U.S. is a wonderful welcoming nation filled with melting pot of good people who largely are kind and accepting of one another. But we have a corrupt bought-out political system, and it isn’t gonna go down easy. Democrat, Republican, liberal, conservative, progressive, libertarian… whatever you want to call yourself, we all need to work together if we’re gonna be slaying this beast.”
