1. COVID Vaccine Thoughts:

Some December 2020 Anticipations :

4 BIG potential problems with the COVID VACCINE? ~ Dr. Suneel Dhand – MedStoic Lifestyle Medicine (Dec 4, 2020)

Further Doubts by that Doctor :

Thoughts About the Arbitrariness & Profit Making Measures :
Let’s be CLEAR: I don’t have much trust in rich and privileged people’s thinking, often biased and self-serving. Therefore, let’s not trust too much this guy talking. Even if he tells truths, he also leaves out other truths (like the the pandemic having been abused by the rich to steal even more from the rest of us, not merely by vaccine profits but government bailouts of sock markets and driving countless people deeper into poverty and out of their homes and small companies to be gobbled up by the bailout-boosted rich). Still, many of the things he does mention may give useful hints at the flaws like forceful arbitrary lockdowns and vaccinations versus well-targeted ones.

2. Pharma Profiteering instead of Fighting COVID-19

Patenting and limiting production of vaccines to own the market and maximize profits preferred by our lords over people and humanitarian ethics.

Scientists Issue Urgent New COVID Warning To Greedy Countries ~ The Rational National (Mar 31, 2021)

Patents are preventing the manufacture of Covid-19 vaccines – Richard Wolff [Global Capitalism] ~ Democracy At Work (Apr 3, 2021)

3. Moves in the Market Against Surveillance Profits

… at least the publicly obvious ones (personal targeting with surveillance-based ads). Still, would the currently surveilling companies (and Apple probably included) not continue to profit from surveilling for corrupt governments? (not self-exposing like person-targeted ads are)

David Dayen: How We Can DISMANTLE The Surveillance Economy ~ The Hill (Apr 1, 2021)

Comment on something left out: Where is the concept of actually turning the Internet and social media into public utilities, free to use by public government spending rather than profits made from surveillance?

4. Forced Choices

We keep getting told to have liberty; but in reality we keep getting forced constantly and systemically.

Everybody Needs To Know This” | Edward Snowden ~ Inner Motivation (Mar 17, 2021)

5. Nazi-Mafia Deep State

Some historic details how American gangsters allied with Nazis forming legalized mafia-style organizations like the CIA in the U.S., an equivalent in post-war western Germany, some of the crimes committed by them. What a pity. Can’t we human beings withdraw entirely from such reptilian behavior, I mean all of us please?

6. Paid Propagandist on Social Media

Example of a Paid Propagandist on Social Media :

Anti-progressice, of course. Even anti-Bernie, of course (when he actually only seems to talk progressive (half-progressive) stuff but rarely actually fight for it *sigh* (which is why I am no longer a big B fan as I once was – but paid propaganda trolls I see as traitors of the people paid by the maifia-like lords that happily ruin our lives, countries, and world)).

More trolls or bots:

7. Police Must be Weakened to Change its Corrupt & Brutal Culture

Shift calls for mental health help, for example, away from police gunslingers to mental health professionals. Hence police defunding (as shifting funds to more fitting professionals) makes sense. It must go together with also reducing the number of police officers (esp. in rural areas, I think), so they shift away from funding themselves by criminal-style people’s harassment, charges, and confiscations.

8. Voter IDs & Lines: U.S. Voter Suppression vs Canadian Voter Uplift

After the chuckling over another surely lordship paid (or ruling class member family paid) propagandist, a good comparison is given between the U.S. and Canada.

9. American Senior Nomads and Squatters

(yeah, right, millennials… lots of current seniors unable to retire; you are not the first generation robbed – Surprise! – It takes a united people’s movement (rather than a public split across “races”, ethnics, genders, and ages) to make our lives good)

Award-winning ‘Nomadland’ documents poverty and survival in America ~ The Real News Network (Mar 8, 2021)

10. Inequality and Market Rules & Regulations

Joseph Stiglitz, a non-leftist economist, spoke in 2016 on the growth of economic inequality in the USA and UK over the last 30 years. Median incomes in the USA have stagnated, Professor Stiglitz explains, with a real decline in incomes among full-time male workers being observed over the last four decades. He describes that there are now more people in poverty, more wealth is concentrated among those at the top, and that the middle classes are being ‘eviscerated’. A non-leftist economist arguing for shared prosperity. Imagine! If you lack much time, some noteworthy quick insight comes near the end.

11. Inequality Funneling Adding to Racial Inequity

In case your time is too short, jump over to 36:02 ~@@@ https://youtu.be/oP_vXlt24u8?t=2162 where Ralph Nader makes superb remarks exposing the flaws of our corrupted society.
