Best subscribe and share with others, so the efforts I make can serve enough people. (I lack time for social media) Thanks. 🙂

1. Economic Details Matter

I surely won’t agree with a whole lot of the claims this interviewed guy (Matt Stoller) from the ‘elite’ tends to make (still rather biased and unaware of much of people’s suffering like from lack of healthcare) – and I don’t find this video very good – but Stoller’s pointing at economic (and legal) details is of importance. What these many little details do to working people and small businesses does matter a lot. It’s often the little details that crush us. And since giant corporations can deal most easily with them, they get an enormous advantage and then crush all smaller businesses (incl. small farms), causing regular layoffs and job insecurity, low pays, lost savings, destruction of self-employment, precarious lives, walls on all sides blocking our lives, and creating an obscure disorganized competitive ruling class abusing its power, rarely or never doing anything good with it. And, yes, people-serving politicians and activists should become more informed about these factors and become able to change them.

2. Starting Strikes against the Cruel Oligarchy

NYC Workers STRIKE at World’s Largest Produce Market. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jan 21, 2021)

Nice quote: “Under conditions of a pandemic and inequality soaring to grotesque new hights, the union was no longer able to hold back the workers strike.”

more (the wealthy union leadership once again corruptly trying to make the strike stop for a “deal” that won’t help the workers):

3. Rural Overpolicing: end of liberty and justice for all

4. Unity Coalition: Divided People Groups Uniting

Note: And, yes, the mass media don’t talk about the many many cases of people not bring given their stimulus checks or unemployment benefits or small business bailouts.

5. Existing Single-Payer Healthcare vs For-Profit Insurances Bankrupting Us

… and guess which option Biden choses:

6. Corporate Censorship: Youtube/Google

News Stream Shut Down! Reporter SILENCED Covering Right Wing Rally. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jan 22, 2021)

7. Things Getting Better under Biden?

No. Realize that both major parties are corrupt serving the same master: the super rich money lords and the system that splits us up into rich and poor.

8. The People’s Party National Call – 1.21.2021

Not all that exciting this time (cannot be every week, of course), but in case you want to stay updated, here it is (most interesting points all from Nick Brana (and I keep asking myself what became of Jerry Perez… how has he disappeared from our universe… and – no – I am not referring to a pointless boxer)):

Cool comment made by someone on Youtube: “The forest was shrinking, but the trees kept voting for the Axe, for the Axe was clever and convinced the trees that because his handle was made of wood, he was one of them.” (posted below a video coming from Greece and therefore prolly less interesting to Americans https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkRZwD-dDuI)
