1. Capitalism’s Instability *

Economic Update: Recession – Capitalism’s Failure Invites System Change ~ Democracy At Work (Aug 22, 2022)

2. Schools Should Deal with Difficult Childhoods to Improve Adult Lives *

(and make people better able to better our world for yet better lives at all ages – a part left out in this video; but yes helping us grow up mentally healthy is a top issue skipped by our schools which mostly actually worsen childhood)

The One Subject You Really Need to Study: Your Own Childhood ~ The School of Life (Feb 5, 2020)

3. Andrew Yang & Jesse Ventura Discussing Making a Strong Third Party

Interesting for me mostly upon 39:57 (me starting the share there).

Jesse Ventura: The Independent Body | Forward with Andrew Yang ~ Forward with Andrew Yang (Jul 4, 2022)

Note: Yang’s party likely not a real people’s party, more possibly a barricade against a real one. Still, if he does stick to making our democracy work by letting more than two parties run successfully in our elections, he may give us a move forward after all. And if the People’s Party movement keeps struggling, then Yang’s “Forward Political” Party may not even end up barricading it.

4. Capitalism Makes a Lot of People Starve **

Let’s for a moment imagine we were still living in a solidarity culture like most prior human generations did before in the last few millennia tyrannies and money markets were invented. Issues presented: millions starving each year despite enough food produced to feed 10 billion humans, agriculture trashing food, groceries trashing food, food deserts, canceling food banks and circumventing food handouts for profit reasons, profiteering push for over-consumption and food-waste, and propagandized blaming of individuals instead of our anti-humanist system…

Can Capitalism Solve World Hunger? ~ Second Thought (Aug 19, 2022)

5. Maybe New Possible Anti-Depression Medication

New treatment for depression ~ Dr. John Campbell (Aug 23, 2022)

6. Police Continuing to Strangle People for no Reason

Police used this dangerous restraint during a fatal arrest, so why isn’t anyone talking about it? ~ The Real News Network (Jul 19, 2022)

Hmpf… Since not allowed to be viewed outside of YouTube, try the YouTube link.

7. Wars, Colonialism, Enslavement, Tyranny, Imperialism

Former WW2 Bomber Denouncing Wars *

… and refreshing history. I have been a fan of him for numerous reasons. We need to cure our warped culture as he moved to do. This report is a bit long, and if you have little time you may jump to the top part of this episode at 30:26.

“War Poisons Everybody”: Remembering Legendary Historian Howard Zinn on His 100th Birthday ~ Democracy Now! (Aug 24, 2022)

The CIA’s Secret Genocide in Guatemala **

The CIA’s Secret Genocide in Guatemala ~ Rare Earth (Feb 26, 2022)

A little question: Should we focus on the Ukraine?

Link: A not perfect but somewhat informative report on CIA drug trade (the CIA admitting to some of it, and only the revealing journalists ever getting punished; and a written comment by a viewer about one of those journalists: “Gary Webb didn’t commit suicide he was killed by the CIA. YOU CANT SHOOT YOURSELF IN THE HEAD TWICE”): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eE2-zYEldGc

8. Some Anti-Democracy and Free Speech Issues

Greens Beat Democrats & Get Back On Ballot! ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Aug 21, 2022)

9. Why European Farmers Are Protesting

HERE’S Why European Farmers Are Protesting ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Aug 22, 2022)

10. Capitalist-Fascist Imperialism Rewarding Mass Murderers

U.S. Puppet Colombian President Lands Lucrative Think Tank Job ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Aug 22, 2022)

11. Class Issues Understood over Left-Right Splittings *

THIS Scares The Sh*t Out Of The Establishment (Video) ~ The Jimmy Dore Show (Aug 24, 2022)

Honorable mention:

Long analysis of human anger and conceptions and experiences that have developed about it (correct conclusion that emotions can be right or wrong and anger can be used for good or bad, reason and rationality being helpful; but this guy has apparently not suffered nearly as much as any of us, so the social duties are not fully addressed by him IMHO): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZiV5WBygQs (note: Transition anger strikes me as a good notion even for other troublesome emotions caused by suffering. It might help dealing with bad emotions if we twist them into transitions, a.k.a. change-making, as much as possible.)
