2. Wage Slavery & The High Cost of Bad Leadership

The Real News Network

Part 2:

Focus on the parasitic/predatory Financial Capitalism in which many of the rich impose a huge overhead on our economy to squeeze the last drops of blood from the rest of us and bathe in them:

Days of Revolt: Junk Economics and the Future
TeleSUR English

 

5. Addressing Disparity with More of the Same

How Neo-Liberals Profit off of Poverty
The Real News Network

Comment: This reminds me of cities where measures are taken to put homeless into jail or in some other way broom-sweep them out of the city rather than help them (and that when our country has six times as many bankster-owned vacant homes than homeless people (if I remember the number correctly)).

 

6. No Left & Right: The ‘Elites’ Stick Together

The R&D Party game: change on the outside, continuity on the inside.

7. Inequality System (CEO Kings, Global World Oppression)

The Globalist World System of Inequality and Oppression

… that has us enthralled in every country, the U.S. included.

How Capitalists Exploit Countries In The Core & Periphery: Wallerstein’s World Systems Theory
The Michael Brooks Show

Comment: Obviously, the real Trump Wall we need is one to keep out globalist capitalism, to stop globalist billionaires and their transnational corporations from gouging everybody in every country, including our own, while pouring all the wealth they steal into tax havens and buying up all the world’s governments to serve their every whim while destroying the whole world.

 

8. Deified Greed

What scum like Milton Friedman don’t get or refuse to face is that greed is NOT the primary impulse of human beings, it is the primary impulse only of the lowest scum among human beings. And living in a system set up by and for the lowest scum is horrible. Guess what, nurses aren’t chasing wealth but want to help sick people. Firefighters want to save people’s homes rather than steal them like foreclosing banksters want. Greed is one of the worst instincts in humans and usually not high at the top, except in scum like Milton Friedman, the Koch brothers and other robber billionaires, their millionaire minions in politics and the media, mafiosi, and other crooks anf gangsters. As long as this scum rules us and rigs the system for themselves we will continue to suffer endlessly and watch our world go down the drain.

10. Climate Crisis (Humor, Politics, XR Movement)

Humor: Climate Crisis Debate

It’s become rare that corporate media comedy shows still stick with the truth, but here is one of those last cases:

Krystal Ball: The stories the media doesn’t want you to know about
The Hill

Comment: Well done… except for acoustically difficult moments, and why does Krystal Ball use weird phrases like “in high dudgeon” (instead of much more understandable terms like “indignified” or “in indignation”)?

 

13. Why Russiahhh?!? (ahead of all other possible smears & excuses)

Project your own corruption on your opposition:

  1. I always felt school was a prison–an incubator to create “good little workers” for the capitalist elites. Not a place to learn critical thinking or questioning the state, for sure! It’s time we democratized them. Thanks for the great video links this week. (I never liked Ellen Degeneres and now I know why!)

  2. I became a teacher once in order to bring critical thinking back into the schools, only to be virtually handcuffed by the principals. I had a better time when I switched to working in independent democratic schools. Unfortunately, they tend to be bereft of funds.
