1. Wealth Accumulation by Dispossession is Our System

… and therefore crumbling. (a Days of Revolt 2016 episode repost) Michael Hudson babbles not very well, but he and Chris Hedges point at a very important historic experience. Historically, nations that ran down this road of high inequality creation via debt games survived only by canceling the debts. Others, that didn’t do it, like the ancient Roman empire, crumbled out of existence – the way things have been going in the U.S. so far.

2. Racism/Anti-Racism “Fun” Instead of Civil Rights

Nowadays nothing but people-splitting blabla and firing people for blabla (whether bad or good blabla) instead of real help for mistreated people. So, the evil oligarchy elites use racism topics to give themselves good looks and control us all the more rather than cure remaining racism. Words and symbols elevated into alleged importance with actual harms being intentionally upheld. (and the “hyper-woke” opinion-culture built that way makes many of us befuddled)

Woke Racism/Ethnic Atlas ~ Ralph Nader Radio Hour (Mar 5, 2022)

So, instead of focusing on what alleged race we “belong” to, we should look at the class we are in on our inequity pyramid and develop empathy for the lower classes (whether we ourselves are in them or not) and focus on eliminating painful inequity, removing the setup of rich and poor, creating instead a Good Life for All as much as possible in the dreadful universe we live in.

Main info on Nader’s recent Boing Max episode (still untrustworthy plains, and how to try to avoid flying on them) starts at 32:21.

Voter and candidates suppression infos (not much if any new for regular visitors of Beanstock’s World):

(and the other vital issue of false vote counts left out, as usual in most reports that address our fake democracy; if you haven’t look at my post of Bernie Sander’s / Hillary Clinton miscounts in 2016, here it is: Election Theft 2016*sigh* I must try to fix the links to deleted online reports there as much as I can, when I find some time for it *sigh*)

3. Ukraine: Report on the Deeper Issues

… written by a retired Swiss intelligence service and Nato official who assisted building the Ukrainian military (Jaques Baud). And in this video, Kim Iversen reporting on his article. (After her talk there always being little reason to listen to the careerists of The Hill channel who babble afterwards, of course – her report takes the first 9 minutes).

4. Russia: Tortured by the West over Three Decades

So, what things would we do if we had been tortured like this? And what will we do that now our life length also runs down?

5. Nurses’ Suicides, Rising Inflation and Corporate Profits

… and Canada trying to squeeze into Russia’s economy place (but lacking the transports and machinery that it raises inflation) … and over the last 13-14 years, American corporate annual profits have tripled (TRIPLED!!!) while we, the people, have been sinking further and further down the drain. And some Ukraine/Russia talk wit Chris Hedges.

6. Profits & Power of the Few, Poverty for the Rest of Us

Basically a tiny number of money lords get to decide how to distribute the wealth we all create; and they grab most of it kicking the rest of us into the ditch.

A quote mentioned by Dailykos (who would expect that?): »This speech by a young shoemaker written in 1827 could describe the worker situation today, “We find ourselves oppressed on every hand–we labor hard in producing all the comforts of life for the enjoyment of others, while we ourselves obtain but a scanty portion, and even that in the present state of society depends on the will of employers.”«

And, if this time there were not enough videos here, maybe you’d love to read this article posted to properly identify the Ukraine war issue (and same ones over and over everywhere). A great article about the good-guy/bad-guy myths, our criminal oligarchs across the globe everywhere defining bogeymen (and scapegoats) to ensure their position of power from which to keep robbing and exploiting us:

UKRAINE: IT’S GOOD VERSUS EVIL, PERIOD! RIGHT? ~ by John Spritzler (March 20, 2022)

Quote: “U.S. rulers (Biden who is beholden to the U.S. billionaire plutocracy that treats us like dirt) and Russian rulers (Putin and the Russian billionaire oligarchs) are BOTH bad guys, determined to keep the rich rich and the have-nots poor.”
