Wakeful Video Weekend 2022-04-01 (12 videos) – With Important Comments

Request: Please share with others. I, for example, can no longer share on Facebook, having been locked out of my account.

BIG NOTE: Criminal YouTube! In the past it (and its owner Google) have quietly changed their algorithms shadow-blocking people who dared to expose bad things done by our oligarchy. Example: hardly anybody finds my blog anymore. But now YouTube went utterly blatant deleting ALL former Chris Hedges’ “On Contact” episodes. Years of work of him (and me, too, since I shared many of his episodes here). It is a crime committed against the free press / free speech guaranteed to us by our First Amendment. But our criminal oligarchs have long stopped abiding our constitution and civil right laws.

I will now increasingly look for alternative video websites. If you can suggest good ones, I will appreciate your suggestion(s). And please share posts like this one with interested people who won’t find them otherwise.

Summary: media censorship, lack of corporate accountability, revolution mindset, civil rights …

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

1. Never Give Up Morality ***

We all must learn to become and stay true humanitarians in our short and otherwise meaningless lives.

Chris Hedges brings us to TEARS with a powerful message… ~ Chris Hedges Fan Club (Mar 12, 2022)

2. Our Plutocratic Fake Democracy

Why Liberalism Won’t Solve Anything ~ Second Thought (Mar 11, 2022)

3. UBI: Considering the Need for UBI and ALSO How it Can be Done Abusively Wrong

… and not to forget that the digital/social control is in constant advance already (and, quite drankly, many fans for “smart” phones and corporate social media play along with it). And, yes, just like previous welfare systems, UBI can also be abused by making its access for people dependent on the good will of politicians or bureaucrats, the exact opposite of the principle idea behind UBI, namely no denial or control from anywhere. So, remember: UBI must be linked up with us, the people, controlling our governments and bureaucracies, not the other way round. And, something not mentioned in this video, remember it, too: a UBI must also be protected from unrestricted price raises (gouges) by a small upper class, thus taking it all away from us again. Yes, thinking of the current inflation? It is time we return to successful measures in the past: legally restricting price raises.

The case against Universal Basic Income (UBI) ~ Sorelle Amore Finance (Feb 24, 2022)

Side note: I think the title of this video is a little faulty. Sorelle does see the need for UBI and like the safety and freedom it could five us. Her reasonable worry about how it could however be abused by governments (in service of the mafiosi-like lords we have in our system of political economy) does not correctly lead to the conclusion that UBI should be avoided. The logical conclusion is that it should be correctly set up and abuse prevents. The thing to remember is that ALL good and necessary things can be abused when the abuse is not stopped. Kitchen knives needed for proper eating can be abused to stab or hack people. Cars needed for transportation can be abused to run people over. Water needed to survive can be used to drown people. And so on. We must build a healthy society. And, yes, a UBI would be an important element in that. But morality individually, societarily, and system-inserted is critical and urgent, lying well behind the technological “revolutions”.

4. Loosing Control over our Money (some good revelations, others missing)

CBDC announced, its rapid broad development announced, but not well described. Pity. Isn’t CBDC publicly proposed as a pay-for-everything-via-your-“smart”-phone (which not everybody has, and which are increasingly used to spy upon and control us)? Already performed restrictions on people’s money are presented quite well. But please don’t worry about government (American libertarianism) but also the rich money lords (who nowadays tend to be married with the government fascist-style but are not in it).

This is how financial freedom dies (CBDC) ~ Sorelle Amore Finance (Mar 10, 2022)

5. Great Answers by Chris Hedges in 2016

Part 1: Chris Hedges vs. Robert Reich on Clinton, Third Parties & Next Steps for Sanders Backers ~ Democracy Now! (Aug 4, 2016)

6. Incredible Revolutionary Heroism **

… an unbeatable commitment to a better world.

Defeat Doomerism with REVOLUTIONARY OPTIMISM! ~ NonCompete (Mar 27, 2022)

7. Ukraine: Risk, Peace Option, Criminal Global Oligarchs

Yanis Varoufakis: The West Is “Playing with Fire” If It Pushes Regime Change in Nuclear-Armed Russia ~ Democracy Now! (Mar 25, 2022)

8. Reboot Needed and Required for our Civil Justice System

Necessary to make our corporations accountable again, return people’s rights to the top, get rid of the ~300 thievish bank fees (like charging you a big fee for a bounced check from someone else) that rob the American people of tens of billions of dollars every year…

How To Take Back Your Power! ~ Ralph Nader Radio Hour (Feb 26, 2022)

9. Censorship: RT America’s Real Nature and The Lies to Justify the Elimination of it’s Journalism

Of course the Russian government wished to finance reports that reveal American problems, not Russian ones. But we, the Americans, need honest reports from critical journalists like Chris Hedges, so we can observe our governmental and oligarchy-made troubles and push for accountability and changes for better. This is why RT America was good for us.

11. Low Wage Police State (promoted online by admitted right-wingers and fake leftists)

Fake leftists = right-wingers/corrupt-system supporters pretending to be leftist; always funded and used to split us the people up and drag us as far as possible to the right (the right always strengthening lords).
