I. Satire: Corporate War on the Media
… as you can see, it’s not only happening in the U.S. (where it has already come close to the end, crushing truth-telling as good as completely):
(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for thejuicemedia and the title: “Honest Government Ad | The ABC”)
Note: This reminds me of our own public broadcasting institutions which have been secretly taken over by corporate money due to insufficient public funding, so that even they largely march in step with the big corporate media channels, raining the establishment propaganda on us and avoiding to tell us the truth about the oligarchy’s evil doings. Defend Free Press and whistleblowers (like Manning and Assange) anyone? Anyone in the big media? What’s that I’m hearing? A bird whistling? Wind blowing tumbleweed?

This weekly post specializes on collecting the best videos of the week at least some of which you may have missed being busy working or studying. Sometimes older ones, like documentaries, are also shared. But with so much amazing stuff happening as right now, it’s all recent stuff. Some of the main characters this week: Bernie Sanders, Chris Hedges, Jimmy Door, AOC, Richard Wolff, Jill Stein, Lee Camp, Julian Assange, Graham Elwood, THR, just to mention a few.
- Bernie on FOX: Wow!
- Medicare for All: How Bernie will Pay
- The Dem-Rep Collusion – Past, Present, & 2020
(understanding how the twin-party tyranny mauls us)
- Economic Update: Two Top-Notch Episodes Not to Miss!
(distraction from above, marginalizing the victims, fighting back from below, Venezuelan historic resistance, presidents, banks, employers vs employees, false work ethos…)
- The Assange Conspiracy
(incl. his awesome achievements vital for democracy, the reasons behind his persecution, and the current war on truth)
- AOC – Is She Real, Our Priorities, Green New Deal…
I. Bernie on FOX: Wow!
(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Wall Street Terrified After Bernie Crushes On Fox — The Political Vigilante”)
Just remember, friends, that we must go way beyond a single political candidate. The presidency is not enough.

The overarching theme of Wikileak’s Julian Assange, his history, accomplishments, past celebrity status, recent arrest and current instrumentalization in our oligarchy’s war on free speech and democracy, the forces and interests behind his arrest, and the far reaching consequences of it all, even criminalizing freedom of the press and turning truth-telling into a crime. The horrors likely facing him. Also the reasons why powerful politicians and journalists don’t stand up for him and the basic concepts of free press and democracy… There is a lot to be learned this weekend in and around the news and conversations held along this theme. Great words and revelations from lots of remarkable people: Snowden, Chomsky, Greenwald, Chris Hedges, Tulsi Gabbard, AOC, Tim Black, Jimmy Dore, Mike Figueredo, to mention only a few, also various insiders and a really impressive really powerful speech by Kim Iversen. If you have no time to watch anything else, listen to her clip that summarizes a lot.
These videos are very worth watching. So much to learn and be up to speed about.

As the Tax Day is about to hit us over the head or under the belt line again, it makes sense to give a thought or two about how proper or improper our tax system is.
Clearly, lots of people across the political spectrum hate taxes, or at least their own taxes, or would like others to be taxed more, or – in some cases – gladly pay their taxes as a contribution to the society that grants them a civilized life. (I once belonged to the latter group.)
But how many of us have actually thought this through? What our taxes are for and what they could be used for instead?
Since many of us are busy meeting the deadline, I want to keep this article as short as possible, only throwing out a funny historic remembrance and some food-for-thought seeds for our future. Continue reading “Proper Tax vs. Iɯdɹodǝɹ ┴ɐx”
This weekend’s video collection of political, economic, and societal issues – both problems and their solutions – is mixed with significantly more written commentary than usual, basically merged with an article. The writing is added to tie the clips together and also enhance the understanding they bring.

Here are many of the pros and cons and how a UBI fits into the big picture. Other topics: an ethical society, news on the corporate media, healthcare, Tulsi Gabbard, liberty, whistleblowers (Manning & Assange), top-run dividedness of the people, Venezuela’s economic reality, and a political comedy session.

Here is an old, yet outstanding, speech by Chris Hedges. It’s from April 3, 2013. If you are certain to have heard most of this before and are short on time, you may fast forward to 1:05:32 where his wrap-up starts and hits hard: https://youtu.be/KJ9nvAX-S1g?t=3932 Otherwise, here the clip starts from the beginning:
