1. Satire: Let the Governments Burn the World

Honest Government Ad | After the fires ~ thejuicemedia

 

2. AOC: The Acts that Matter

AOC: We Shouldn’t Be Scared of What Will Happen If We Try ~ Bernie Sanders

 

3. Is the D Party Left?

Of course not. It is a slightly different from the GOP fascist corporatist neoliberal/neocon curruptician party, the two major parties blocking democracy by monopolizing the election processes and both party elites serving the robber billionaires and their corporations while snubbing their party bases:

Is The Democratic Party Center-Right? ~ Secular Talk

 

4. Capitalism: Uneven Development ( → Inequality & Turmoils)

The anti-social operation of capitalism. A disease of society:

Economic Update: Capitalism’s Uneven Development ~ Democracy At Work

 

5. Floor and Ceiling of Society

Finally someone besides me proposes a reshaping of our prosperity structure by putting a floor under and a ceiling above everybody linked together and a UBI is being discussed more intelligently than usual:

Maximum Wage/Universal Basic Income ~ Ralph Nader Radio Hour

 

6. Julian Assange, Wikileaks, Journalism, and Empire

Intellectual Tariq Ali speaks out on Assange’s case & U.S. wars ~ acTVism Munich

 

7. The Iowa Caucus Lottery & “Surge”-Manufactoring Media

Media Caught Repeatedly Lying To Boost Buttigieg ~ The Jimmy Dore Show

 

8. Bernie Won Both Iowa & NH (but we need to fight harder)

BREAKING: Bernie Wins New Hampshire Primary ~ Secular Talk

 

9. Andrew Yang’s End of Campaign Speech

Pretty good campaign end speech with future hope:

Andrew Yang Speaks After Dropping Out of 2020 Race | NowThis ~ NowThis News

 

10. Bad Candidates: Wall Street Pete

Saagar Enjeti: ‘Wall Street’ Pete’s sheer emptiness revealed day before New Hampshire primary ~ The Hill

 

11. The Real Trump Never Discussed (Slashing Soc. Sec., Medicare, & Medicaid)

Trump’s War Budget Slashes Support for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid ~ The Real News Network

 

12. People’s Movement for Change

Tear-jerking Bernie Sanders AD (Featuring Killer Mike) ~ RE-EDUCATION

 

13. Healthcare: How Does Germany Beat Us?

If we get Bernie’s Medicare for All we will beat Germany (eliminating stupid bureaucracy and complications, and making freelancing a lot easier). But for now Germany still beats the American Wild West of Healthcare, even though the German health coverage system still has private insurance companies involved:

How Germany’s Universal Health-Care System Works ~ CNBC

Let’s follow the Canadian, Spanish, or Britishmodel rather than the puzzle in Germany. Meaning, let us not be lured into the keep-the-private-insurances schemes that corrupticians try to convince us of.

 

14. Anti-Liberty State Laws

Abby Martin Sues Georgia Over Israel Loyalty Oath Law [Full Press Conference & Interviews] ~ Empire Files

Q: Now, why are 26+ U.S. states beholden to a small foreign country’s fascist government?

 

15. NEOLIBERALISM Summary (incl. the “Third Way”)

NEOLIBERALISM ~ NonCompete

 

16. Mentality (Primitive vs Grown, Young vs Old)

Mentality (Primitive Default vs Grown)

Your Mind is an Excellent Servant, but a Terrible Master – David Foster Wallace ~ After Skool

Mentality: Young vs Old (Maturity & Meaning of Life)

WARNING: This elder from whose interview good insights can be taken (insights helpful for the solidarity we need for a better future) has faith in a benevolent god (a mysticism I don’t share because I have yet to meet that cosmic benevolence I see nowhere in existence, rather the contrary). The included mysticism makes me reluctant to share this video. But luckily there is only little of that god-talk, and aside from it there is much here to learn from, especially about me-me-me vs the world and when still young:

If more to life than meets the eye, what earthly use am I? ~ Spiritual Unfoldment with John Butler

 

17. Humor (Lewis Black & Jimmy Dore)

Humor with a deeper meaning (that at least old suffering people understand)

Lewis Black | 2/8/20 Sarasota FL: CO Detectors ~ Lewis Black

Media Millionaire Going Wacky

Chris Matthews Fears Execution Under Bernie Presidency ~ The Jimmy Dore Show
