1. Capitalist Cultism

Another good video to start the weekend series with:

Capitalism and Religion ~ Sankento (Jan 14, 2020)

An interesting scene from Michael Moore’s documentary : Capitalism: A Love Story”

2. Capitalism = Why the American Dream Died | Socialism to Resurrect It

A Future Beyond Capitalism? Socialism Explained. ~ Second Thought (Dec 11, 2020)

Crisis explanation: Economic crashes are the natural regular result of capitalism, because the economy isn’t jointly or smartly managed but has separate (and often competing) large businesses wrestle around in it which is a process that includes constantly squeezing the non-rich working people until their impoverishment makes the market collapse.

Some data: In 2019, 600,000 homeless and 17,000,000 (yes, 17 million!) empty homes, coming out to over 28 empty homes per homeless person!

3. A Talk about the Neo-Feudalist Oligarchy

I am not a fan of the Keiser Report (and don’t recommend the 2nd part of the video babbling about bitcoin), but the conversation in the first part was quite good this time. I looked into this video because of the word Cantillonaires. Did they miss-spell centillionaires (defined as persons who have untold wealth and don’t know what they are “worth”)? Anyway, pouring out unrestricted talk about our money-aristocracy was pleasant to me. You may like it, too.

4. Neoliberalism = Capitalist Ideology | Capitalism = Violent Domination

Global Economic Machine ~ Chris Hedges and Fabian Scheidler (On Contact, RT Dec 5, 2020)

5. The Psychology of Politics | R vs L | People Unity

Georgia On My Mind ~ Drew Westen in Ralph Nader Radio Hour (Dec 12, 2020)

Besides analysing the political psychology by which voters get emotionally deceived, there are also good points on what would unite the people and make our lives better. And later on there are other interesting points. Here, for example, is a nice quick point on left vs right populism, followed by automation and jobs elimination coming from the pandemic, plus an idea I came up with 2 decades ago, namely coupling corporate tax cuts to better corporate behavior (like higher worker salaries and benefits, lower CEO bonuses, longer paid vacations for workers, better ecologic behavior, and so forth; coupled with an overall corporate tax raise, so that evil corporations get punished and good corporations rewarded): 43:47

6. M4A: AOC, Universal Healthcare, and Fake Progressives (AOC Warped)

That’s sad, AOC. If I understand you correctly, you warn about a potential down-vote of Medicare for All. But delaying the vote forever is just as destructive to the people. Forcing its vote during the pandemic is a must, and corrupticians exposing their public enemy behavior by voting against it will in fact be a step forward, whereas waiting forever is no step at all. I see here a clear reason for a true People’s Party to push the corrupt R & D Parties from their throne. You, AOC, and Bernie should switch to the People’s Party now, possibly the last opportunity to join the American People that’s beginning to rise up.

AOC Schooled By NFL’s Justin Jackson On Forcing Med4all Vote Now! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Dec 12, 2020)

7. Long COVID: When coronavirus symptoms don’t go away

Quote: “Some estimates say about 10 percent of COVID-19 patients deal with lasting complications. They may include breathlessness, joint pain and fatigue. Patients are left in pain or unable to breathe properly. Simple day-to-day tasks become massive challenges. And yet, long COVID is not yet recognized as a disease in many places. So what exactly is long COVID – and how is it different from COVID-19?”

8. Trump’s & His Allied Corporations’ Fraud

Please, fans of a guy who deceived you, learn from the facts. (and, no, I am not pomoting the equally corrupt and deceitful “Democratic” Party establishment)

Wisconsinites Lose Homes For Trump Factory That Was Never Built ~ Secular Talk (Dec 12, 2020)

Note: What’s really sad is that a con man like him has persistent fans willing to die for him. Suffering people who swallow and redistribute the false claim of a “coup” or election fraud having allegedly kicked Trump out of the White House because, even as he gave them no real help, they are so desperately grasping for straws that they satisfy to hold on to the false hope he gave them. No real help, but emotional help based on lies (false promises and the claim to be superior to Blacks and Immigrants). Just like religious cult leaders do (‘gimme money and obedience and an invisible god will give you a great afterlife’). Enjoyable fiction feels better than distressing reality. But, listen my fellow sufferors, a real solution is far better than a fictional emotional boost.

9. George Carlin on Human Rights and Religious Claims

Your Rights Are An ILLUSION – George Carlin ~ After Skool (Jun 4, 2019)

10. Police State Terrorizing Honest People (Whistleblowers)

COVID Whistle Blower RAIDED with Gestapo Tactics! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Dec 9, 2020)

11. People Rising up against Neoliberals (a.k.a. Mafiosi)

Protests In Chile, Bolivia, India All Rejecting Neoliberalism ~ Graham Elwood (Dec 10, 2020)

12. American Communities Starting Eviction Defense

Portland Residents Push Back Cops Serving Eviction ~ Graham Elwood (Dec 10, 2020)

13. Something You Can Do Right Now for our Healthcare

Pressure Squad To Push Med4All Or Primary Them ~ Graham Elwood (Dec 9, 2020)
