Especially around 7 minutes in, a top point exposing corruptician lies of “saving” by “cutting” government services for its people.

6. The American Police Mafia

Think about it. What is an institution that – instead of protecting us from criminal activities – regularly arrests, fines, and robs people based on what they allegedly possess (things like marijuana packages that the victims can simply be framed with by planting those false evidence objects into their cars or pockets or homes), the members of this institution thereby financing their neat incomes and pensions and boosting their status while keeping their victims injured for the rest of their lives (for example prohibited from voting, blacklisted via the fictional law breaking record imposed on them, etc.)? Is that a law enforcement institution or a justice-breaking mafia-style organization? How, in fact, can any third party in such a process know where the “evidence” came from when there was no lawbreaking act by the victim but merely the claim made by the accuser of having found an object the accuser can have planted himself? Treating such an object as a crime instead of treating a crime as a crime really undermines the principle of a justice system. The so-called war on drugs therefore is a war on constitutional civil rights rather than harmful substances, a war on the constitution and American people, isn’t it? How can it be anything else? I admit, I failed to think about this in the past because I always stayed away from drugs. But running an intended justice system this way is like claiming that 1 + 1 = -666. Yes, you and I cannot know if the person reporting what was done to him was true or not, whether the drugs were planted by the police or not. However, thinking about it for a minute, it becomes obvious that planting false evidence in order to then harm people who have broken no law whatsoever is made 100% easy to do; and when this combines with lots of benefits the dishonest accusers can get from this process, then such criminal dishonest acts by law enforcement members are quite likely to become a common practice, aren’t they? *shudder*

7. How Capitalism Denies Working People their Lives

Where I have set this clip to start presents fairly clearly how my life has been blocked throughout my existence on this planet and is still being blocked, quite likely until the day I drop dead:

Capitalism Hits Home: Does Capitalism Kill Creativity? Let’s Count the Ways. ~ Harriet Fraad (Democracy At Work | Dec 2, 2020)

8. Protests & Strikes: Last Week The Biggest One in Human History

… in India, 250 million people demanding a more decent system (minimum wages, higher wages, pension for all, better COVID protection, etc. (apparently they already have healthcare for all making it easier to go on strike)). Something we Americans could be inspired by. But, of course, our Mass Media don’t tell us about it:

Largest Strike In Human History NOT Covered by Corporate Media. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Dec 4, 2020)

9. Protests & Strikes: The French Fighting Police Brutality and Government Tyranny

Police State Law Makes Filming Police Illegal! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Dec 4, 2020)

10. Rampantly Increased Inequality by Our Rulers

Boosting the parasites at the top and disallowing help for the homeless:

~319~ REVEALED: The Rich Gain Billions While Workers Are At Food Banks ~ Redacted Tonight (Dec 4, 2020)

11. The Profit-Addiction & Destructive Competition of Capitalism

AskProfWolff: Capitalism’s “Economic Growth” Fetish ~ Democracy At Work (Dec 2, 2020)

Comment: Unless I missed it via distraction, there is another important reason why capitalist-run societies aim for economic growth, namely the built-in endless shift of wealth from everybody else to a small group of rich. It endangers capitalism over time in two ways: revolution by the over-impoverished people and shrinking of the market system (on which capitalism depends) when increasing poverty shrinks the consumership.

12. American Bottom Sadistically Crushed by the Top

… and, yes, even the middle and upper middle of the pyramid is now part of the bottom to be crushed. It’s time for the people to unite under the goal of a Good Life for All rather than those around the middle of the pyramid choosing to uphold the corrupt soul and life breaking system!

14. Greenhousing

You may remember the house covered by a greenhouse for nice climate experiment (for the colder regions of Earth where so many of us must suffer our lives) presented on the last weekend. To dive a bit more into such a possibility, as well as greenhousing for homesteading a possible mix between them (since I was young I dreamed of writing books sitting in a cacti greenhouse even before I came up with the idea of placing a house inside a greenhouse or making a greenhouse a place to live), here are some videos that may help with such things:

Greenhouse for Comfort when You Have a Yard

A greenhouse adds year-round gardening potential, but it can also act as a solarium or sun room to relax in (or do home office work in a relaxing environment). And while this video shows some of that, most of it presents the construction from a kit whose price isn’t mentioned (nor is the reasoning behind a garden pool like ground making explained *sigh*, still at least there is a hint given that like with home building we must put up with the dictatorial bureaucracy (they needed to cooperate with a local building inspector)):
