Request: Please share with others. I, for example, can no longer share on Facebook, having been locked out of my account and search engines like Google hide posts like these.
Summary: Way too many informative videos found this week. I felt forced to put some aside for the next weekend. Those of the current weekend deal primarily with our life-crushing modern system we must struggle to live in and the censorship of news we get (except in little truth outlets like this blog here, making subscription of it useful for people who want to stay well informed).
Stars and channels: Our Changing Climate, Democracy At Work (Richard Wolff), Her Homestead Skills, The Jimmy Dore Show, Then & Now, Second Thought, Ryan Chapman

1. Our World Built around Work (killing us and our environment) ***
… and the health of our societies we could have instead, so we could the destruction we can’t when still trapped in agony and split against each other.
Why Work Is Killing Us (and the Planet) ~ Our Changing Climate (Jun 3, 2022)
2. And the Ridiculous Conspiracy Theory to Preserve the Catastrophic System ***
If you’re short on time, you can skip the introduction of job destructions you may already know about (mechanization, shipping jobs into poor wage countries, and sometimes even importing poor workers across the border) by starting here where the good explanation by Richard Wolff gets deeper at 10:29:
Economic Update: The Great Replacement Theory ~ Democracy At Work (Jul 11, 2022)
3. Warning From A Farmer: Food Lack Coming Up **
A Warning From A Farmer ~ Her Homestead Skills (Jun 10, 2022)
4. Unsustainable Capitalist Farming System *
Chemicals, tilling, mono-cultures, false cattle feeding, weird factory food productions, and profits-aimed distribution and trashing cause mass extinction, soil destruction, a lot of greenhouse gas production, and a waste of a lot of food. And, yes, a return to more small-scale farming could help (it still producing 51% of all human food, btw).

Part 2 (Cuba example):
How Cuban agriculture went from industrial to sustainable ~ Our Changing Climate (Jul 20, 2018)
5. Shrinking Confidence in Institutions
Poll: Confidence In TV News In Toilet ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jul 9, 2022)
6. The Invention of Individuals’ Responsibility for their Poverty
A bit long-winded (52 minutes) but giving us more truth and honesty.
The Invention of Individual Responsibility ~ Then & Now (Jul 20, 2021)
7. Biden Destroying Social Security
Joe Biden’s Biggest Lie Yet ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jul 13, 2022)
8. Retirement Still Achievable? *
Ground down over decades already. 😦
Is Retirement Still Achievable? ~ Second Thought (Jul 1, 2022)
9. Interesting News Comparison of Past and Current
Unfortunately this guy does leave out some important issues. One is that even in the 50s and 60s the news companies still cheated people simply by leaving out certain stories of what was going on. He also leaves out the switch from many small companies to the mere five to six big corporations that now run most of the media. He also forgets that big corporations (including the Military Industrial Complex) by giving or denying advertisements that give news businesses their revenues play a big role. Plus, of course, mafiosi-like robber barons having financed right-wing radio channels and such.
So, this video could have been a lot better. But it does display some differences happening across American journalism history even if explaining the causes for the differences only a little bit.
Why News Used To Have Less Bias ~ Ryan Chapman (May 7, 2022)
10. Growing Shutdown of Independent Media
YouTube Host Silenced For Challenging U.S. Gov On Ukraine ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Jul 14, 2022)
Maybe not yet censored independent media mentioned or displayed-and-hinted:

A video found on rumble.com about crumbling America:

Another Video I came Across and mention here:
It’s a funky video I don’t recommend unless you want to look into the selfish mindsets of people seated high in our inequity pyramid: How to Find Balance in the Age of Indulgence – Dr. Anna Lembke (Jun 7, 2022)
My comment: Rather than directing well off people into enjoying beautiful nature and emerging into human solidarity and therefore then commit themselves to help less lucky fellow humans (and other beings) and human-harmed environments and build towards a Good Life for All world, this well off woman of narcissist mental color merely teaches her well off fellows to balance their emotions to feel better with no attempts to make our nasty world better. And poor people she briefly mentions as being likely of high emotional addiction. Sheesh.
