1. GameStop: Millennial Small Investors Striking Back at Wall Street Billionaires

Saagar Enjeti: Wall Street Elites DESTROYED, Beaten By Redditors At Their Own RIGGED Game ~ The Hill (Jan 27, 2021)

… and the rich ‘elites’ protecting each other, blocking the common people, bailing each other out, and misinforming the presidency:

How Criminal Hedge Funds RIGGED GameStop Market w/Dylan Ratigan ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jan 30, 2021)

Note: surprising to hear from Dylan Ratigan, though, that hedge funds are not by design evil but rather an attempt to prevent flawed stock booms (bubble booms). (not sure that he is coeect about that since we have been having them nevertheless)

… continues (has an odd section regarding censorship and Internet freedom, but severla good points, esp. the final sentence: a few thousand people controlling both [major] political parties for their interests at everybody else’s expense):

CNBC Melts Down Over GameStop! with Dylan Ratigan ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jan 30, 2021)

… and how the “short sale” of hedge funds works (which oddly no economist ever bothers to understandably explain – note: what follows after this explanation is ostly different stuff like bitcoin fanatism):

Wall Street Gets Owned By Game Stop Buyers ~ Graham Elwood (a.k.a. political vigilante | Jan 28, 2021)

… the wealthy “elite’s” selfish (sociopathic) bias:

NASDAQ Chair Compares GameStop To Capitol Insurrection! w/Glenn Greenwald ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jan 31, 2021)

2. Senseless Ignorance Leading to Racism/Fascism and Similar Division

Black Musician Befriends Klan Members – Changes Hearts & Minds. ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jan 27, 2021)

… conversation continued (arguing for speaking with one another and looking outside our boxes and bubbles):

Fred Hampton/Black Panthers Joined White Bigots In Class Unity w/ Daryl Davis ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jan 28, 2021)

… cont. (left and right united for change):

Civil Rights Leaders Join With Far Right To Shut Down Vegas Strip w/ Daryl Davis ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jan 28, 2021)

3. Dividing the Working People with Badly Designed Government Spending

… followed up by evil propaganda to divide us. Ever been wondering why we have no Social Security for All (a.k.a. UBI) even though it was almost voted into existence during the Richard Nixon era? This is why:

The Soft Corruption of Ambition w/ Richard Wolff ~ Bad Faith (Jan 24, 2021)

4. Examples of the Filthy Money Aristocrats Washing Each Other’s Hands

and robbing us (until 6:13, afterwards we get a lot of bitcoin / cryptocurrency babbling again):

5. Exploding Social Media Censorship

7. Decommodify: How Socialists Solved The Housing Crisis

How Socialists Solved The Housing Crisis ~ The Gravel Institute (Jan 29, 2021)

8. Economic (& Religious) Fundamentalism

… (partially known as dogmatic neoliberalism/libertarianism) benefitting the large corporations (and their rich owners and managers) while depriving and terrorizing the rest of us but getting well debunked in roughly the first half of this video… afterwards the video becomes less special (namely stuff we have heard a lot of times already):

Prof. Wolff on Hatred of Government – and How to Fight It ~ Richard Wolff on The Zero Hour with RJ Eskow (Jan 23, 2021)

9. Imagine that: An Ethical Lawyer, a Hero of the People

While so many lawyers are members of the people-raiding henchmen of status quo, once in a while there is one actually in passion for justice. Example: Michael Ratner.

Radical as reality itself ~ Chris Hedges of On Contact speaking with Michael Smith (RT America | Jan 31, 2021)
