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

1. Expanding Empathy **

… and thus getting out of the isolated, lonely, selfishness box; and giving us the possibility of building a better society.

The Opposite Of Utopia (featuring Jeremy Rifkin) ~ Sustainable Human (Aug 30, 2019)

2. Pushing Back against Misinformation

An organization fighting for appropriate honest media/press reports and editorials, for people to become skilled at recognizing disinformation. Nice quote: “Our democracy can’t survive if Americans are unable to distinguish facts, evidence and science from conspiracy, bluster and bombast.” Also some interesting questions and answers at the end about, for instance, dealing better with corrupt politicians. Starting at 31:16 where this interview gets down to the major points.

Be a Smart News Consumer ~ Allan C. Miller interviewed on the Ralph Nader Radio Hour (Jun 12, 2021)

The truth discovery websites mentioned: newslit.org (programs and resources for educators and the public to teach, learn and share the abilities needed to be smart, active consumers of news and information), checkology.org (lessons and other resources show you how to navigate today’s challenging information landscape)

These two links give media-understanding timely lessons for teachers (like especially civics teachers).

3. Our Insane Economy Leaving us Empty Handed

Saagar Enjeti: Shortage Crisis Shows How Elites Made US INTO A CLOWN COUNTRY ~ Breaking Points (Jun 21, 2021)

4. Our Rulers’ Wrong Treatment of Our Financial Crises

First Europe and then America looked into:

Ten Years Ago: European Debt Crisis [10th Anniversary of Economic Update with Richard Wolff] ~ Democracy At Work (Jun 26, 2021)

5. Worker Co-Ops Working well even during the Corona Crisis

Better merged with the local community and giving workers a so rare chance to gain wealth.

This city supported worker ownership—and got results ~ The Real News Network (Jun 24, 2021)

6. World: China Abusing Young Migrants Very Much Like the U.S. Did

Remember, in our country Irish, German, and so on immigrants were handled very similarly (and they came for similar reasons, hoping to get the chance of a worthy life). There is a real built in problem of abuse in capitalism, even in so-called “communist” (China) or “democratic” (America) countries.

7. U.S. Housing Market Bubble Crashing ***

So, while home prices at least in some places may continue to rise, they may actually drop somewhat again soon like in the 2008 mortgage crisis. The constant insane price rise that has been especially wild recently comes in in large part from robber barons (and robber baron corporations like Blackrock) who invest massively in real estate in order to turn us all into their rent paying serfs and to keep getting richer even if the stock market crashes and to hold on to their richness when the economy tanks or our currency goes down the drain (which could reduce these jerks’ virtual wealth of stock and money numbers) since land does not disappear or lose its virtual value nor lose its usefulness. We have just had again a fast blooming financial bubble from the rich folks gambling and the corona lockdown driving more people out into homes they had not desired so much before. As this guy points out, the people who can still buy homes are limited in numbers and now shrinking. Combined with a boost we had in home construction (that other media say we did NOT have), this guy sounds right when pointing at changing numbers and interpreting them as a start of a bubble burst.

Housing Crash 2021 is HERE: Home Sales / Lumber Prices Plummeting! ~ Reventure Consulting (Jun 11, 2021)

8. America’s Looming Housing Crisis ***

Even though the previous video announces that the real estate bubble has already begun to burst, this video may remind us that such bubble bursts don’t return us to the better former age but are merely temporary slip-backs for our robber barons’ constant shift of the world’s resources into their pockets and away from the rest of us. So, the insanely boosted current home prices may relatively soon sink somewhat again, but the mafia of the rich will hold on to as many homes as they can to turn us all into tenants forced to pay rent to them through our noses. It is really high time for us, the American people, to rebel against the utterly cruel sociopathic ruling class that happily makes us starving and homeless.

America’s Looming Housing Crisis ~ Second Thought (Jun 25, 2021)

9. A Money Lord Predicting a Soon to Come Great Depression *

On Beanstock’s World you have come across many predictions of this coming from those who are not fans of the wealth and power pyramid (dungheap society) we live in, including high expert economists like Richard Wolff. Here now is one of the money lords who all their lives have been profiting from our corrupt economy and politics – a man who largely overlooks poor working people and their troubles only seeing middle class troubles – predicting a bubble crash resembling the fearful infamous and scandalous “Great Depression” of a century ago. Yep, a report from the money aristocracy’s Bloomberg TV.

10. Healthcare: Used to Rob and Enslave Us (when Biden could give us M4A TODAY!) **

Media FINALLY Talks About Medical Debt Causing Bankruptcy ~ Graham Elwood (Jun 23, 2021)

11. M4A: Politicians’ Healthcare Games **

Yes, M4A would help us all but also disprofit the mafia-style health insurers who lobby and bribe against it. And even though M4A would be super easy to make happen by simply removing the 65 age doorstep, a far more difficult and expensive Public Option has been considered. But even that is just a carrot to dangle in front of voters, because it could also reduce private insurance profits by offering a more affordable public insurance competing with the greedy private ones. The profiteers seem to be pushing instead for a slight age reduction of Medicare, in order not to help more people but to reduce the profit-bent private insurances’ expenses since this would free them of the currently still most expensive payout clients (just like the current Medicare starting at age 65 frees them of the even more costly clients). But, yes, let healthier younger people still pay through their noses to these rich robber barons. That’s what the money lords want.

Progressives NOT Demanding Biden Keep His Promises ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 22, 2021)

12. Corrupticians: Kamala Harris Cackling About the Political Farce She is Part of

Kamala Harris’ Creepy Laugh Signals Dishonesty ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 20, 2021)

13. Humor: Jon Stewart on the Corona Lab Leak

Jon Stewart Embraces Lab Leak Theory As Colbert FREAKS OUT! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 20, 2021)

14. Media War: Consistent Profit-Wars Endorsement

Really incredible what insane babbling these criminal media heads pour upon us.

Joy Reid’s JAW DROPPING Pro-War Rant ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 26, 2021)

15. Empire: The Top Nation of Messing with Other Countries’ Elections

(and otherwise simply assassinating other countries’ leaders). Yep, it’s not Russia. It’s U.S. Remember, it’s not you and me. Not us citizens. It’s a global oligarchy of robber billionaires and their corrupt corporations using our country as their main base for their global empire. One of the reasons why our democracy was crushed and turned into a fake-democracy with elections run like rigged sports games and our “representatives” cheating us every day.

STUNNING: Biden Tells Biggest Lie Ever! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 21, 2021)

16. Judicial System Improved by the D Party? Nope! (D = R)

No. Exactly the same as the R Party. Biden packs courts with Trumpers. Our oligarchs (a.k.a. money lords and robber barons) want fascism in our country, and our corrupticians from both major parties happily fulfill that wish of their bribers.

OUTRAGEOUS! Biden Packs Courts With Trumpers ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 22, 2021)

17. Force the Vote: Remember it being presented as faulty?

Now Schumer forces one when likewise suspected of not getting the bill passed. (which btw would be good for us, the people, because that bill – while on the surface preventing some voter suppressions by the R Party – below the surface is built by the D Party to make it harder for third parties to pass over artificial hurdles, anti-democracy hurdles built by the “Democratic” Party which runs its own voter suppressions focused in its case more on rigging primaries and protecting itself from third parties, people’s parties, less from the R Party which behind the curtains is its partner more than competition)

HILARIOUS! Schumer Forces Vote Before The Squad Does! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 27, 2021)

18. People’s Party National Call 6/24/2021

A call growing in significance over time. The best part for me starts at 39:11, where you can skip to if your time is short. This call speaks out very well about the consistent horrible betrayal of the American people by both major parties, and looks forward towards beating these corrupt monsters and finally guarantee Americans what our fellows around the globe already have guaranteed (and then some more).

Cool Articles found this week:
1.) Neat news article to read about homeless people building themselves a lovely village (of course always threatened to be destroyed by police): Homeless Oaklanders were tired of the housing crisis. So they built a ‘miracle’ village (The Guardian)
2.) Neat very insightful comprehension article about the repeal of our ‘Golden Age’ because of which we now have so much trouble: The 50 Trillion Dollar Question: What is Austerity? ~ by Richard Moser (CounterPunch) Sample quote: “Austerity is the big lie: “We Are Broke.” When the big truth is: the economy is rigged and inequality is the result.[1] Austerity is when the ruling class gets most of everything society produces leaving the people with less than they can live on. … Austerity is the opposite of economic democracy — it is the dictatorship of big money. Contrary to corporate propaganda, austerity is the opposite of free markets too; … Austerity is a core feature of neoliberal policy and the forefather of the recent fascist revival…” (included the revelation that our U.S. police funding turns out as the world’s third largest military funding, a $108.8 billions in 2019) Oh, and the original article is actually on Richard Moser’s blog that seems really good: https://befreedom.co/2021/06/17/what-is-austerity-that-is-the-50-trillion-dollar-question/
