Summary: One very important conversation video about capitalism’s erroneous goal culture (three stars: ***), a must to listen to. The rest of the share-worthy videos I found in a very busy week are fine enough but not the best. Recommendation: People who still like to read may regularly get more out of my added written descriptions, informations and ideas plus comments than from the shared independent media and news videos themselves.

1. The Human Lives Ignored by our Economy ***
How can we consider an economy to be truly efficient if only employers and similar money lords get taken care of quite well but the rest of us are getting constantly hurt. How can the given huge damage, disruption, pain, and difficulty be ignored as a terrible cost on our communities? Only by an idiocy that only ever peers on money profits for corporations and money lords. This is a very important critique of capitalism. Countless things crucial for our lives get ignored, pushed aside, thrown into the ditch. Any wonder in our current human world that many people (me included) wish they had never been born? And the continuation of capitalism always has the wealth created by rising productivity go into the hands of the richest people who need it least, rather than improving human societies. Building terrible inequality and inhumane societies is the nature of capitalism and what an unrestricted money game tends to do to us one way or another.
Very important thing for all of us to become aware of!

2. Railway’s Money Lords’ Profits by Hurting the Rest of Us *
Sadly this video is a bit overlong in my opinion. Shared by me to start at the fine conclusion at its end (33:41). It’s a pity. JT Chapman has for a long time created the very top videos of explaining usually extremely well the problems in our modern world and how to fix them. But now moving from 1 such video per week to only 1 every two weeks and spending effort, time, and money on traveling around for self-made filmings strikes me as a loss. IMHO the major part of this video merely presents what we could hear from elsewhere or simply suspect. His analyses and propositions for helpful changes are IMHO much more valuable. If you do want to hear more details but save some of the excessive time created by an overlong video, you can start at 12:26 where the video begins to also look beyond East Palestine, thus showing the insanely high numbers of railway accidents in our country, why thy happen, the abuse of workers and bribing of politicians, and a tip for change.

3. The Fiction-Kind Outcome of Money, Wage Labor, and Capital
Little warning: David Harvey is always long-winded and often a bit hard to understand. If you don’t want to lose much time, hearing his final statements starting at 32:26 may be sufficient. Content plus a little addition from me: Fictitious capitals (like stocks and given loans) have been making huge profits for rich money lords without them ever having to do real work, instead exploiting working people via profits taken away from their wages or by taxing them (say, for example government repaying loans plus interests to rich money lords (instead of properly taxing them)). But, as these fictitious capitals bloom (like on Wall Street) they became ever more fictitious and can eventually blow up (like the dotcom bubble crash around 2000 or the subprime mortgage crisis around 2008 and similar crashes in recent years before and during the COVID crisis and building up again right now). This is why, I would say, the rich money lords have in the past years ever more switched into transferring their fictitious capitals that for decades made them ever richer and richer with money gambling back into real capitals especially by buying away our real estates to own huge amounts of them (thus to be much safer from bubble bursts and inflations) and to turn more and more of us into rent tenants, a very safe income for the rich very similar to how feudalists looted people in the past before the capitalist gambling began. I hope my summary with added revelations make this video better to understand.

4. Richard Wolff Hinting at Democratic Schools
… that would be very different of the dictatorial corporatist schools that most of our children currently are pushed into and made to learn to play along with the despotic and exploiting capitalism they have been born into. Unlike me, Woolf can apparently not give deep details on how democratic schools can or could work. The few that have developed as private schools (a tiny fraction of existing private schools, of course) are often in lack of money and can have other problems, including problems for some children thanks to lack of finances. But on the whole, proper democratic schools give their children democratic power and practice and ideally can give the same to the teachers and even parents. Examples: In current democratic schools (rare as their existence is) students typically come up with most of the student rules and can even run a court that deals with fellow students’ violations (instead of dictatorial CEO-like principals in our anti-democratic schools). Teachers could vote on teacher issues like their employment (unlike in some democratic schools where students may kick out a teacher over a mere temporary flawed dislike or misunderstanding or to bring in an interesting seeming new teacher for a year, then kick that teacher out, creating repeatedly teacher turnovers – a case that causes unfair teacher unemployments). And the parents could help figuring out and voting for learning materials and learning goals proposed to students and teachers, which may be helpful even if students have total liberty on what to study or do. Yes having some checks and balances strikes me as needed in democratic schools I dealt with. (and do understand “democratic schools” have nothing to do with our American anti-democratic “Democratic Party” nor the GOP of course)

5. Social Security Taxation and Financial Situation *
… plus profit rather than safety focus in our money-lords-owned railway systems, and a discussion of the colonial status of Puerto Rico and Puerto Ricans fighting against it.
Let me add that we should extend Social Security rent pays as a UBI for all adults…

6. Richard Wolff on the Collapsing Banks
… and developing U.S. implosion. Some insights in our crises (and prediction of a coming financial U.S. implosion), but unlike in most of his speeches or interviews, Richard Wolff was a bit unclear. So… uhm… uh… who could the Silicon Valley Bank have loaned its money to more safely than the government (to avoid value getting reduced by rising interest rates)? … And… uhm… did the government or The Federal Reserve recently create again more money to offset bank crisis at a time of harmful inflation – or is it a near future deed he suspects?

7. German Demonstrations and Movements for Ukraine Peace *
Way more folks than in our United States. Also hinted at the big economy losses for Germany (and profits made by certain American money lords) from the Ukraine war.

Comments from viewers:
- People in countries where there were wars understand… the US hasn’t had a war on US soil since…???
- That’s not correct. There were 50k-60k people there. Mainstream media wants to downplay the numbers. There are already 700,000 people who signed the petition against sending more weapons to Ukraine…
8. Bill Gates’ COVID Vaccine Lies for his Profits
… plus claims about lab leak viruses.
