1. Good Comparison of Feudalism, Capitalism, and Socialism ***

The only thing I found missing is an explanation that lack of democracy in places like the Soviet Union were not the result of socialism or “communism” as our oligarchy always claims in its propaganda to brainwash us. While most of us have become aware that capitalism results in bribing away democracy, fully developed socialism actually protects well against that. But, still, sociopathic narcissists exist in every society. And some of them always try to climb in the high seats of government, and then they will corrupt it and bar democracy from working. This can happen more easily when their countries are hit with brutal war and severe economic sanctions, which is what our capitalist western nations did to the Soviet Union thus raising Joseph Stalin into his seat of power, just like the feudalist European Nations earlier made war on France to wipe out its revolution thus raising Napoléon into his seat of power. In this remarkably short yet informative video, instead is given the example of Chile where the socialist president was democratically elected and no dictator of any sort.

2. How and Why our Failed State Cannot Recover *

(esp. ~16:00)

Because it has focused so hard on exploiting us that it has created too much poverty for the country’s economy to recover. And because it has given up industrial and other growth, replacing it with grabbing foreign resources, real estates, and businesses; all led to be given to the rich banksters with whom our government has its adultery.

3. The Failing Sanctions Altering the World

The debt-profiteering money aristocracy linked up with the political aristocracy of the U.S. has been trying to turn the whole world’s countries into its subjects, but this economy-destructive strategy is now splitting up the world economy, shifting wealth production into the far east, and making the remaining western economies crumble.

And the global financial system changes accordingly (as some money aristocracies don’t want to be pushed aside):

4. Brazil, Saudia Arabia, China, Russia adapting against the U.S.

Brazil To Abandon U.S. Dollar & Create New Currency! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (May 7, 2022)

5. Social Credit System (a terrible future being attempted) **

Oppressing and controlling us via control of money and rights even more than so far, namely with pervasive and fast digital devices (like the fartphone you may like) and algorithms. In other words, in the past we had iron chains and swords and leather whips, nowadays money and elaborated anti-liberty laws, and the next plan: making this oppression digital to be super fast and 100% complete. This lady has brought this up in a longer video shared here before. But here is a possibly shorter, clearer one. Really dangerous for us to get chained by digital scores and punishments.

A terrifying prediction for 2030 (the Great Reset) ~ Sorelle Amore Finance (Apr 28, 2022)

Note: And let’s not forget that such corrupt governments are not the only governments we can have (we could bring about truly good governments and some of the needs we have need good governments to fulfill them). Evil, corrupt governments are created by evil money lords (robber billionaires). So, we the people must be aware of both mafia-like enemy gangs.

6. Independent Candidates and Actually Effective Grassroot Actions *

Stepping out of the oligarchic system and hit it with effect.

Kshama Sawant FIGHTING The Machine (clip) ~ Sabby Sabs (May 1, 2022)

And the callins video that followed came up with another interesting issue, one I rarely find a good video about (because the targeted victims are busy finding a new income and may still be confused and dealing with high stress and often a loss of self-confidence):

7. Teachers Not Allowed to Make a Positive Difference **

While the rest of these callin talks deal with politics, two segments deal with the abyss in which good will teachers land in our cruel schools; something I experienced myself. (yes, never become a teacher in our country while it stays corrupt and evil to maintain the oligarchy!) I am starting this shared video at the 1st teachers-and-schools segments (13:04); the second segment will start at 43:34:

Note: And if as a teacher you consider escaping the schools and teaching online, as always big corporations will screw your incomes using online teachers as competitors on each other (including in poor countries where $3 an hour can still be lived on):

8. Home Office Work Made Less and Less Livable *

Example on online teaching; a 5 minutes talk:

9. Neoliberalism Being a Societal Narcissism/Sociopathy Culture

Giving us a society that doesn’t serve us all but rather a small group of fiends it makes flourish at our expense. Nothing new to me, and perhaps also not for you; but perhaps good to share with buddies who are confused about our widespread problems.

Narcissism + Neoliberalism = The Life Of I ~ Renegade Inc. (May 6, 2022)

10. Capital is Not Just a Thing But a Process

A process for wealth to create more wealth at the expense of the non-wealthy. So, it’s not just unequally distributed wealth at a current moment, but in a capitalist system the means to unequally distribute further. This is why, even after occasional redistributions via taxes, welfare programs and such, the inequality resumes. This is why I keep promoting measures like a cap tax on income and wealth, UBI, and Universal Basic Dividend, to restrict the inequality process.

11. Economic Update: Housing – Human Right VS System Failure *

Set up to start where it became most interesting (20:38). American large homelessness because of (A) huge housing prices created by the money lords, (B) this grabbing of real estates and price gouging not restricted by our bribed governments, and (C) homeless shelters being big profit makers in cities like New York that give much much higher payments to the shelter companies than what paying rent for the homeless would cost (and so the cities get bribed to keep the homeless homeless). Yes, there are plenty of money lords who suck up our tax money.
