Best subscribe and share with others, so the efforts I make can serve enough people. (I lack time for social media) Thanks. 🙂

1. Chris Hedges: “The Greatest Evil is War” **

Some of his experiences were tough to listen for me. OTOH, his speech’s end was wonderful (starting at 49:46): demanding that we learn to insist on a healthy human society, caring for all of us, even the enemies and “lifting them up” (teaching them to become kind if they are still stuck in hostility).

2. Messy Family Cult from Capitalism

Some insights on family life made unhealthy by capitalist cult build. Harriet Fraad of course focuses only on men-women-oppositions (since she has a tradition of excessive feminism) plus poverty issues, including also the modern frequency of single-parents. Left out is the overly common scattering of family members across states or even countries (something apparently not happened to her, but many of us).

3. Economic Update 2022-10-31

… less free global economy, OPEC+ cutting oil production by 2 million barrels per day boosting inflation further, immigrants possibly less scapegoated now in some countries… unusually insightful talk from Ana Kasparian, a host of The Young Turks (will she stick with this?)

4. Corruption: Hospital Corruptions & News Media No Longer Enlightening Us ***

… and more corruption revelations. It’s so clear to me nowadays that money is behind most of the troubles in our world. A really neat comment given in this speech is “The powerful don’t want you to ask questions about the root causes of poverty because the root causes of poverty are exactly the same for them being rich and powerful”.

5. Censorship < Gov < Corporations < Money Lords (Billionaires)

Not all that much data, but things spoken out.

6. Florida Arresting People for Voting

7. Ukraine: Chris Hedges Interview of Medea Benjamin

Rather long and not too much new insights for me. Still, Chris Hedges and Medea Benjamin are top experts always likely to give all of us at least some more insights. Major topics for me: costs, history (Ukraine-Russia close relation across centuries and more recent developments)

8. Brazil: Lula Won and Fascists Protesting Alleged Coup

A little reminder how Trump-addicted folks claimed a coup after Trump being voted out in 2020.

9. Computers: Modern Malware Protection *

In the good old days (the ’90s), while Windows PCs were showered with viruses, classical Macs got no viruses at all for many years. When a few viruses eventually were created for those Macs, a protective software named Gatekeeper demanded user-given allowance for any software that tried to create or modify files. Once allowed, always allowed. Blocked if not allowed. This fantastically made virus spill on these old Macs almost impossible. After the nineties I had to use Windoze PCs and became quite well skilled with blocking and removing malware on those computers. But they kept getting harder all the time. I eventually left Windoze behind (yes, no Windows fan, hence my spelling of Windoze). This week, however, I had to spend time figuring out modern Windoze conditions. I wouldn’t regard myself these days a top expert of this, but here are two videos I found pretty convincing, and which present costless and very stable malware protection for both Windoze AND other OS computers:

Part 1: What’sBest

Sold antivirus products no longer reliable nor even trustworthy. Antivirus SW nowadays is not very helpful and can actually be the spy or the hacking door (besides often also costly). Suggestions given:

  • Don’t normally log in and work on a PC as admin (instead create a non-admin user as which to usually log in. Both on Windows and Mac OS. (and you can also use on Windoze the built in antivirus: “Windows Security”)
  • better computer systems: Mac/iOS
  • even better: Linux

Part 2: Windows Security

Windows Security also has a firewall and “App & browser control” to protect from deceptive sites (incl. phishing scams) and blocking downloads of malware files.

Honorable mention:

Very old Noam Chomsky recently interviewed by Chris Hedges primarily about re-growing fascism and the massive transfer of wealth to the rich in the past ~40 years (50 trillion mentioned at 9:13): The Chris Hedges Report: Noam Chomsky, Pt 2 ~ The Real News Network (Oct 28, 2022)
