Welcome to another 4th of July. Let’s use this day to reconnect with our ancestors who fought for common good and justice and liberty for all. Let us fight to regain what the rich and their corrupt henchmen and hucksters have taken away from us since then.

The only good recent video addressing our founding fathers that I found is this one shared already a month ago. Here it is again for today, followed by further good videos more recently found (good but not directly matched up with this holiday, still fitting int well):

1. Capitalism vs. Socialism among the Founding Fathers (a good one for the coming 4th of July) ***

Left out is the probable division among the founding fathers. Many of the “fathers” we hear about were at the top of the wealth pyramid of the time (especially as slave masters). Most of the foot soldiers whom we should conceivably also honor as our founding fathers since they were the ones risking their lives in the battles with British armies were not, and I suspect that if they were still alive, their vast majority would pick socialism over capitalism. Even the famous top “fathers”, I suspect would have a significant number of taking that pick for improved justice and domestic tranquility. Think of George Washington’s struggle with his inherited slave mastery and the nation’s slavery, for example (a deeper look into which reveals our current system of wage slavery built into our current capitalism). What should also be mulled over is the question if either capitalism or socialism could exist in a world without money. A thought leading to the reasonable conclusion that socialism isn’t really a capitalism-opposite but rather a derivative (an evolved version) of capitalism with the goal to remove the flaws of original or further corrupted capitalism and replace them with better structures that would lead towards the common good demanded for example as “general Welfare” in the Preamble to the United States Constitution – September, 1787.

2. Capitalism = Technologically Advanced Feudalism **

… and learning a little here about real socialism vs mass medias’ communist-smear babbling done to put a hard limit on beneficial improvements of our economy and society. Plus further insights. He sadly always talks overly fast, and sometimes packs so many thoughts into a short period of time that repeated listening becomes necessary. Still, much of what he mentions in this video would be great to spread on 4th of July. 😉

Why Are So Many People Losing Faith In Capitalism? ~ Second Thought (Jul 2, 2021)

3. Shifting from Violence and Oppression Abroad to Decency, Compassion, and Health at Home **

We could spend our taxes on free healthcare for all and ending homelessness instead of bombing the rest of the world. In fact, only fractions of our military taxation would pay for these things.

4. Non-Americans Respond In HORROR To US Healthcare System

5. Empire: The U.S.A. Empire Base Standing so Alone

Crushing Blockade Supported By U.S. & Israel ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jun 28, 2021)

The comments written by viewers on the Youtube channel are actually even more worthy to see.

Samples:

  • Funny how any world leader who opposes the American regime is branded a dictator hahahaaaaa… meanwhile every American president is a profiteering W A R C R I M I N A L
  • 94% of the whole world sees the USA as an imperialist empire. Only Americans who feed on a steady diet of blatant propaganda don’t know this.
  • There’s a reason why North Korea will never get rid of their nukes.
  • Zero distinctions between Trump and Biden.

6. Republican Evangelical “Christians”

Yep, Jesus fought for the poor and societal justice. Many Evangelicals have been warped into going for the exact opposite. Yep, they are actually anti-Christians believing that they are Christians. Here is a lengthy video going over the historic steps of crazy Evangelicals becoming evil-endorsing fascist Republicans (yes, again, not really Christian at all):

How Evangelicals became Republicans ~ J.J. McCullough (Jul 19, 2020)

7. Amazing Talk on UBI and a Better U.S.A. and World ***

… by a pastor! (possibly the only real/honest/truly-Christian pastor in the world!)

A Universal Basic Income ~ Roger Ray on CCCSpringfield (Sep 3, 2018)

And here some matching quotes from another source:

  • We have the money. We need to put people first. Food and shelter are the highest priority. We need solidarity with those without paid work or without enough income from work. It could be us tomorrow.
  • We are biological creatures that require access to the resources of the world we live in to survive. What is it called when you prevent someone or some animal from access to those resources and that creature perishes?

8. True Democracy Would Not Only be in Politics

… and would eliminate huge inequality, poverty, and daily lack of liberty.

9. Healthcare: The Odd Treatment of the Pandemic

by cronyists and capitalism, sweeping aside the modern science and technology we have to finally save humanity as prior generations did not have the means to do but now still doesn’t get done because of our corrupt and sick power structure:

10. Our Deluded and Deluding Media and Political Parties

Rachel Maddow “Is Not News” Says Court Ruling! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jul 2, 2021)

11. Is Jeff Bezos a Child?

All lords in economics and politics strike me as being children, never matured to gain compassion for others. So they do everything possible to cheat us, rob us, and oppress us. “Hahaha, I’m winning the game. I’m flying into outer space. I own planet Earth…” So sad, so disgusting these infantile personalities placed at the top of a dungheap pyramid of wealth and power inequity. This sick pyramid system must be discarded. Let mature and responsible, sane and sensible, ethical and dignified, honest and healthy humanity exist again.

Jeff Bezos is Off to Space – And it’s Costing You BILLIONS!!!! ~ Russell Brand (Jun 21, 2021)

12. Basic Public Services vs Being On One’s Own

Time to resurge our sense of solidarity (that gave us the American Revolution and the New Deal, both taken away from us by the rich robber baron lords again). Starting the video at 13:26 where it’s importance starts:

13. Former Cop Became a Cop Watcher

Former cop became cop watcher after this fraught encounter with police ~ The Real News Network (Jul 2, 2021)

14. News: More Lies That Were Handed to Frame Julian Assange

In case you have missed pass informations, Assange has been totally framed from day one (for instance the “rape” claims from Sweden had been invented sexual misbehavior charges (nothing real or significant) then converted by the mass media into “rape” charges, all long thrown out by the Swedish legal system by now where the original charges were noticeably artificial). The later use of the American Spy Act, was utterly ridiculous from the beginning (a foreign person living and working in foreign countries in journalism, isn’t an American spy!). And the idiocy claims of Assange having encouraged or assisted whistleblowers to conform computer hacking was like charging you with having encouraged or assisted a street gang member to rob someone in the streets (with the noticeably difference that whistle-blowing isn’t a crime but public exposure of other folks’ crimes!).

16. Striking for a Proper Life – Room for Life

Don’t mess with a coal miner’s wife ~ The Real News Network (Jul 3, 2021)

17. Rest in Peace our Fellow Mike Gravel

… and let his proposal of true democracy move forward for him to watch from heaven.
