1. The Declining Empire and Continued Inequality Explosion **

… and we all knowing but many of us forcing themselves or others to believe otherwise. Well explained that two things are needed: a clear vision of alternatives and an organization that can make them happen. (the third important thing not brought up: culture change that eternalizes a Good Life for All aim on top of all other aims, this bringing us together and blocking roll-backs from positive changes)

2. Our Weird Money Culture **

Exposing well how we respect and disrespect people wrongly based on our insane money market culture. It also presents the past major treatment attempts: Christianity for lessening the pain and communism for curing the money market disease. (the video then at 4:00 ends weirdly though, claiming that the current economic order can’t be changed and recommending respect-boosting art for impoverished folks; a bit like Richard Wolff pointed out weird unrationalizing distraction customs in The Zero Hour video above)

3. Money as Ego-Driven “Honor” vs True Honor ***

… and the thought or hope that capitalists could get their honor goal shifted into a good one (away from maxed money). (maybe another attempt by this video channel to give a protection for capitalism and thus pleasure potential rich donators; still mental changes for a better world are needed or at least desirable at all levels of our current power pyramid)

4. Fossil Fuel Profits Quadrupled, Pharma Blocking Price Reductions, …

Another Economic Update episode with noteworthy revelations. The top ones starting at 9:31 . In the second half of the show, Wolff interviews Vijay Prashad on his new book with Noam Chomsky on the fragility of US global power (it’s current economic and political decline and growing emphasis on military empire).

5. Prospective Pfizer-COVID-Vaccine Study

High percentages of side effects.

6. Selfishness vs Compassion, Becoming Aware of Injustice *

And, yes, experiencing discomfort oneself boosts the awareness (or might even be necessay?).

7. Robber Barons’ COVID Abuse vs Cheap Treatments

Quadruple-Boosted Pfizer CEO Gets COVID & Starts Selling New Drug! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Aug 16, 2022)

8. Criticism of Fake-Progressives

… who mention the things we, the people, need and wish for, but staying secret about the robbing and money laundering done by our oligarchy that such politicians in the R and D Party actually serve rather than us. On the whole, I still didn’t feel this video was as good as former ones from the people party’s movement. Hearing growth of the People’s Party is way more of interest to me than a conversation about our corrupticians which any of us could have at a lunch or dinner. Getting urgently needed changes done is the most important thing now.

Jimmy Dore and Nina Turner Feud & US Warmongering with China in Taiwan ~ People’s Podcast | The People’s Party (Aug 19, 2022)

And here is again why I argued for focus on building up the People’s Party, namely that other third parties are either too weak or – in this case of a new one created by a billionaires class member – likely only created to block a real people’s party among the third parties:

And remember that Andrew Yang, while offering UBI (universal basic income), he denied Medicare for All. Do you realize that without universal healthcare lots of poor folks could get their Medicaid health insurance taken away from them if they received a UBI? I have read that 30% of Americans by now stick in Medicaid health insurance, and gaining a cent over extreme poverty, it gets taken away from them! A poverty trap that the oligarchs nowadays love to stick us in.

To learn more about Jesse Ventura and Andrew Yang’s new party you could listen to this video, interesting and entertaining to me but 2:15:01 long and not importantly informative (except maybe giving an indirect hint that the People’s Party that came out of wishing to draft Bernie Sanders into an independent party will be outflanked and barricaded by a corporate Andrew Yang party):

9. Drug Price Reduction Not Really Happening!

Only a tiny number of drugs targeted. Plus years of delay. What Jimmy Dore left out (if I didn’t lack hearing it) is that the delay gives plenty of time to repeal this again anyway.
