1. Let’s Cure the Disease of Job Status

Outstanding speech on the flaw of our current global culture and changes we must make. If you visit this video on Youtube, you will also come across many outstanding comments left by others.

3. Using People’s Strengths and Wishes for Progress

But, of course, not stay stuck with small institutions made by governments or rich folks only to make themselves look good. Rather use such measures when building up strong people movements, having their grassroots be maximally successful by letting them use their strengths and incentives. Butalso tie them together with other local grassroots organizations to build people movements whose people power can overthrow the disgustingly sociopathic current oligarchs and “elites”.

9. U.S. Hospitals Shrinking and Closing

… based on corporate profit calculations, of course.

US Closing Hospitals At Record Pace During Pandemic ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Nov 30, 2021)

10. Medical Addiction for Huge Profits

… for rich mafiosi, like so much else in our corrupted system. Yet another form of enslaving and stealing, and these goons (as always) don’t get punished (at least never enough) and manage to hide much of their huge stolen wealth.

Did The Sacklers Get Away With It? ~ Ralph Nader Radio Hour (Dec 4, 2021)

11. People’s Party National Call, December 2, 2021

Especially Zeynab Day speaking so well in this episode (and previous ones), that I would gladly vote for her, not just Nick Brana. I wish the people’s party will some day shift us away from only voting for a single candidate in an election towards voting for a team this candidate is a member of.
