1. Bad Biden and Harris

News: Biden Keeps Trump’s Tax Cuts For The Wealthy

Biden Keeps Trump’s Tax Cuts For The Wealthy ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 8, 2021)

Kamala Harris = Trump (immigrants equally mistreated)

What Jimmy left out is NAFTA (it not only broke the U.S. but also Mexico where millions of farmers were converted into desperate poor labor seekers). Another thing to mention: we have estimated 11 million “illegal” immigrants but also 10 million emmigrants (expats, who btw get harassed terribly by our government even when living and working in other countries).

Kamala Harris Repeats Trump’s Message To Immigrants ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 9, 2021)

2. Dangling Universal Healthcare Only for Getting Votes

Rep. Jayapal OPPOSES Voting On Her Own Bill! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 10, 2021)

3. Identity Trickery to Control Us ***

Consumerism to Control Us

How Consumerism Undermines Our Identity as Workers – Richard Wolff ~ Democracy At Work (Jun 8, 2021)

And this time Richard Wolff’s wife added on excellently to this topic of our mental control by the lords (and of them, too) via tricky identity culture:

Identity Trickery: Culture of Domination and Subservience

Identities manipulated and discipline imposed on the serving working class from early childhood to maintain a pyramid of wealth and status of legalized robbing and oppressing. Disciplinary family culture, authoritarian church and labor culture, school cultures built to divide is into masters and slaves – all without official slave ownership, but still resulting in the same exploitation and oppression, now called capitalism rather than slavery or feudalism, but working much the same, but using clutural mind warping rather than iron chains and swords to result in the same sociopathic outcome. (video set to start where it comes to the point)

Capitalism Hits Home: Identity Politics – Class Identity ~ Harriet Fraad on Democracy At Work (Jun 10, 2021)

Side note: And, yes, Harriet Fraad does not speak perfectly (often unclear about who she is currently talking about when switching the angels of view – a fairly common problem, btw), and in way too many ofher video speeches of her she gets trapped in that feminist all-men-are-bad mentality (at least to me it comes out that way), which is why I don’t very often check or share her videos. But sometimes she comes up with excellent ones, or excellent segments, which I then do gladly share.

4. Socialism: Different Definitions and Levels

Ask Prof Wolff: Is Nordic Socialism a Progressive Step? ~ Democracy At Work (Jun 9, 2021)

5. People’s Party: National Call (good!) **

Cool topics: the growing Medicare for All movement (nationwide march planned for July) and the uselessness of our inconsequential “progressive” D Party congress members.

The People’s Party National Call – 6.10.2021 with Misty Winston #HomeRun4Julian and Joanie #M4M4All ~ The People’s Party (Jun 11, 2021)

6. Extreme Billionaire Tax Avoidance *

Secular Talk

The Humanist Report

Bombshell Report Details How Little America’s Top 25 Billionaires Pay in Taxes ~ The Humanist Report (Jun 9, 2021)

7. Criminal Police State: Officers Allowed Violence Against Everybody

Cop Flips Pregnant Woman’s Car For No Reason ~ The Rational National (Jun 10, 2021)

8. WV Pressure Campaign on Corrupt Senator

We Are Coming’: March Against Joe Manchin Announced ~ The Rational National (Jun 10, 2021)

9. World: Syria & Media Update

Lots of significant insights into the Syria war (U.S. attempt to change the government – for empire might and corporate profits, of course; a police state government but in some ways better than ours, for example universal healthcare – and for this goal boosting ISIS and Al-Qaeda creating the horrible terrorism there and millions of refugees) and the misrepresentation by mass media and fake progressive media like The Young Turks; the industry of fake-progressives.

The Young Turks Embarrass Themselves Pushing Pro-War Straw Man ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 8, 2021)

10. UFOs

Humor: Comedy Treating Recent UFO Reports

… with – to me seeming – reasonable skepticism:

UFOs Have New Name According To CNN ~ The Jimmy Dore Show

Reasonable Thoughts About UFO-ET’s

Drivers Of The New UFO Narrative Keep Absurdly Saying They Could Be Dangerous ETs ~ Caitlin Johnstone (Jun 2, 2021)

What Really Are the Currently Media Presented UFOs?

11. Awareness & Compassion ***

Compassion vs Sickness from Abuse

The Problem With Hyper-Individualism

The Problem With Hyper-Individualism ~ Second Thought (Feb 19, 2021)

If You are A Good Person You’re Probably Already A Socialist

You’re Probably Already A Socialist ~ Second Thought (Nov 20, 2020)

We Must Return Away From Sick Culture of Competitive Detachment

… not letting us live in human nature. The one thing left out is what innate instincts the unhealthy modern culture of endless competition is based on. While most prior generations lived in cooperative communities, the instincts for competition and domination and cutting out compassion came primarily from the fights between tribes (fighting the “alien” others) over natural resources whenever human populations became too big. Avoiding overpopulation without violent means would have been better but wasn’t yet possible, unlike nowadays. Sadly, this inter-tribal dehumanization has been shifted by narcissist lords into competition and hostility between neighbors, co-workers, relatives, and so on, dividing human societies into “alien” other sub-groups in combat rather than solidarity, in order to build the sick dungheap pyramid of wealth and income inequality and siphoning everything up to the top, a diseased society we now are born into to suffer endlessly from the cradle to the grave. This is an abnormal unhealthy culture criminally designed that we must shift back out of, so we can return into a healthy society; even healthier than in ancient times thanks to science, technology, and historic experience that did not yet exist back then but we now have.
