1. Not Only Colored People Have Been Trashed in Our History

35th Portier Lecture: “White Trash: The 400-Year History of Class in America” ~ Spring Hill College (Oct 30, 2015)

Comments made on Youtube:

  • “Well she definitely proved who the real enemy is and it isn’t the regular average everyday person. We just want to live in peace prosperity. The enemy is dividing us up over lies!”
  • “Exactly what I’ve been stating for decades – racism is promoted by the elite. Truth is: It’s the rich against poor, not color against color.”

 

2. History Of Ideas: Capitalism Financing Economic Growth but Exploiting and Destroying

The problem that needs to be stressed more than in this clip is that a system based on privatized capital and permitting unlimited ownership inequality automatically becomes immoral and abusive.

HISTORY OF IDEAS – Capitalism ~ The School of Life (Jul 24, 2015)

 

3. History Of Ideas: Consumerism’s Part of Play in Prosperity and Decadence

I would add the argument that the power of decision must be taken away from the hands of a priviledged few and spread widely among the population (for example by worker co-ops instead of bosses “employing” and abusing their wage slaves and often brainwashing and abusing their consumers as well).

Recent Chris Hedges quote: “We have enemies. They run Silicon Valley and sit on corporate boards. They make up the two ruling political parties. They manage the war industry. They chatter endlessly on corporate-owned airwaves about trivia and celebrity gossip.” (from his Scheerpost article: Chris Hedges: Don’t be Fooled by the Cancel Culture Wars (yep, Truthdig where he published in recent years has been taken over by the Oligarchy))
