Wakeful Video Weekend 2021-05-16 (14 videos)

Summary: Many of this week’s videos struck me as meager. The ones I am sharing I have therefore split in three groups – top (4), medium (3), and OK (7).

Israel: One of the reasons for poor videos this week may be the spike of Israel war crimes addressed by everyone in mass and alternative media. I prefer not to waste time on those events because the fact that Israel is a Neo-Nazi Regime created by a tiny percentage of Jewish Holocaust survivors to conquer foreign land and treat their closest relatives on Earth (Palestinians, the other branch of descendants of their mid-eastern ancestors (this is merely my personal guess, I admit)) the same way thievish and murderous Nazi fascists had treated them (or some far away close or remote relatives). There is nothing new to this and the disgusting mistreatment of Palestinians (slaying, disenfranchising, and throwing them out from their own land) by Israel, nor the ignoring of these crimes by all other countries’ governments. *sigh* – Not new enough for me to waste time on, unless a decent solution were on the horizon. Mostly because human suffering has become rampant globally by now, and we must all learn to clean our own doorstep (the corrupt politics and economy of our own countries) to save ourselves and thereby finally gain the strength to save others. Being distracted with a focus on a small group of victims when most of us are now in big trouble, is – to me – just another distraction useful for our sociopathic oligarchic lords who don’t want our sick global system (and national sections of it) to be fixed. And let’s not overlook the much more huge genocides committed by the U.S. military complex, either. It’s possible that I missed an important new point, but the reason I didn’t look into these news (having very limited time struggling to survive myself) is hopefully understandable. I did eventually glance into the Israel war crimes videos and came across two quite sharable ones (shared below). — If you want to look deeper into how to oppose Zionism effectively, read this article by John Spritzler: LISTEN ANTI-ZIONIST!

Top Good Ones

1. Why People Hurt People – The Need to Rebuild Social Infrastructure

Important short clip extraction from Chris Hedges speech.

Why People Hurt People | Chris Hedges ~ Sustainable Human (May 16, 2021)

2. Money is Fake – Well explained! (addressing both regular dough & bitcoin)

Both entertaining AND informative: money created out of thin air as a virtual thing… dividing us into a few super rich and innumerable poor… a handful of folks “owning” the planet, the rest of us struggling to survive… Earth’s biosphere getting destroyed fro profit thus dooming the human species… bitcoins even weirder…

Money is fake, but some money is faker than others. ~ Thought Slime (Mar 26, 2021)

3. Capitalism is NOT a democratic system

… and it opposes and crushes democracy. Not only does it deny democracy for us at our workplaces but it also bribes away any political democracy. This is why we don’t really have any voice about our life conditions.

4. All Sticks, No Carrots in our Labor Market Nowadays

Richard Wolff: Jobs Report Is Sign Of Economy IN TROUBLE ~ The Hill (May 16, 2021)

Medium Good Ones

5. How co-ops across the US weathered COVID-19 by prioritizing their workers

Not working yourself into the ground (respectively to death). Escaping ruling (and reckless) lords. Making jobs less hateful. Democratically run workplaces helping people not to get forced into work under bad conditions that deny us our humanity.

How co-ops across the US weathered COVID-19 by prioritizing their workers ~ The Real News Network (May 14, 2021)

But, yes, worker co-ops by themselves don’t fix the corrupt destructive capitalism that has continued to ruin iur lives and world in succession of its predecessors (slavery and feudalism, only different in small formal details). They still move us closer to a proper human world to live in.

6. Correcting the View of Israel

Part 2:

OK Ones

7. Bad Biden of 100 Days

Joe Biden is no FDR (unless forced by us, but can we?)
Starts out nice (thanks to Chris Hedges, of course), but is less phenomenal later since the interviewed professor isn’t very skilled at educating the public. (So, why is he a privileged stable-life professor (if he is), while a much better educator like me is unemployed? — The reason why I am now working on becoming a paid web developer, most likely as freelancer because I grow tired of age-discriminating employers, unwilling to wait for my relocation to them and addicted to some or other bloated frameworks. Yep, I need an income. Surprise!)

8. Corrupticians Toeing the Political Lines for Personal Career Advantages

9. People Party’s National Call 2021-05-13

The good points are spread out with big gaps in between. The highest density of good point starts IMHO around 1:05:45 where you may wish to skip to if your time is too scarce.

10. Owed Taxes Not Paid by the Rich

… by having our corrupticians defund the IRS. Part 2 addresses the corrupt neo-fascist Israelian goverment’s crimes (in alliance with our U.S. corrupticians).

11. Bizarre Police and Courts Behavior

Poisoning thousands of potentially innocent people. Arresting and sentencing patients taking prescribed medicine. Excessive sentences for small offenses.
