AOC’s Bernie endorsement and Bernie’s fantastic “Back” rally in New York after he is back out of the hospital:
I. AOC’s Bernie Endorsement
This is about a guaranteed advanced standard of living in the United States (the richest nation in hisory) with no ifs no no buts. Power to the people, and a Good Life for All:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Endorses Bernie For President
Additional note: When we mention a people’s revolution, we should realize that this is simply a continuation of our famous 18th century American Revolution where the people shared these aims promoted again today but wealthy creeps subverted the outcome into the mess we are in today.
I hear the echo from the hopeful past: All people are created equal and endowed with unalienable rights – among these life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And the role of government by the consent of the governed is to reflect and protect these and other rights and promote the general welfare (a.k.a. a Good Life for All).

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. This particular compilation is also dominated by a heavy focus on one big major theme that is growing in popularity and public discourse: the concept of a Universal Basic Income. 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.

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for BEME News and the title: “Universal basic income: money for nothing”)
Above, Lou Foglia from BEME News gives an overview of the many stances and arguments on a universal basic income (not all of them but a lot), and he ultimately concludes (as do I) that the main reason to have it is to rescue us all from the blood sport that our current economy and job market is, one we never signed up for before we were born into it.
Especially the first video you should not miss. It sets the standard for our awareness (and can hopefully be life changing for those whose awareness is still lagging behind). We need to quickly become more aware of the severe flaws and possible changes of our system. Stars: Guy McPherson, Abby Martin, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jill Stein, Chris Hedges, Jimmy Dore, Stef Zamorano, Ron Placone, … oh and Bernie, and many more…
Our mentality is the basis for deprivation or change. This video compilation digs into a lot of that as well as other important things like fake politics, harmful economics, and Medicare for All as a fighting ground to democratize our economy (by Kelly Coogan-Gehr from National Nurses United), and so forth. — Information like this, which you never see on the mainstream media, is the education we need to bring about positive change.
Gee… All I heard in the mainstream media was that stingy French people are raving in the street like little children over gas prices. Now things are slipping through that suggest something much, much bigger, something of truly HUGE import for every American and every human being alive!
Three brief videos capture it well. Here is the first clip, a street interview recorded in France:
(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for WeAreChange and the title: “Total Media Blackout! Paris Is Far Worse Than They Will Tell You!”)
Really captivating quote from this Frenchman in the street (slightly edited for clarity): “Don’t go for wishful thinking. Go for looking behind things, because it’s very clear that that’s what they (the oligarchs) want from us. They want us to go for wishful thinking so at the end of the line we are divided because we are not clear on what really is happening.”
So, is the people’s revolution which so many of us have been yearning for just around the corner? Is it already happening in France, with France as the model for the rest of the world? Can it happen without a people’s party or a well-structured people’s agenda? Is France spearheading the turning point? Let’s hear some more:
(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas and the title: “Richard Wolff | Masterfully Explains France’s Yellow Vest Movement”)
So, if the understanding and vision of the people is still insufficient to bring about the change we need, at least the momentum seems to have arrived, and the reaching out across traditional divides seems to be starting, at least in France for now, but perhaps unavoidably across the globe, including here in our beloved United States where we traditionally congratulate ourselves for our 18th century revolution which clearly didn’t go far enough, doing away with kings but not the robber barons. So, maybe we will live to see the final step sooner than we thought…
To conclude this little piece, I want to share one more short video. This one is from an American commenting exactly how I feel and think. I haven’t encountered him before, so I don’t know if I agree with him otherwise, but he really speaks for me in this brief video clip, and perhaps for you, too?

As Thanksgiving is coming up and many of us hopefully manage to team up with family or friends, awkward tensions over political issues may arise. Therefore, today I share articles, mini-pieces, and videos to prepare you well.
On Thanksgiving we meet to celebrate our communal connections, our sense of belonging, the things we either have or hope to have some day, or a famous past that we profit from in the present — such as past inventions, medical developments, economic and political developments… uh, oh… maybe not the latter… It may be worth to take a look at a path towards a Good Life for All or at issues that cause tension in our families or circles of friends, and a possible way to resolve them constructively.
For this purpose, I today share links to:
prior Thanksgiving posts worth revisiting and
some videos that may help in overcoming tensions with our fellow celebrants
Once again, this weekend comes with videos providing lots of insights in our economy and politics. Especially big topic: third world poverty in America and the upcoming great economic crash. But there is plenty more. So, if you are lucky enough to have a weekend, watch these videos instead of infantile adults chasing balls in an arena or paid liars talking false politics on TV.

When the world looks at the engraved words of our nation’s founders and early fighters they are deeply moved. No prior statements held such power as the bold proclamations that we are all created equal; with equal rights to life, liberty, and happiness; rights to be ensured by a government allowed to govern only by our consent; a government bound to serve rather than rule us, and obligated to provide for our “general welfare” (meaning a good life for all, not heaven for a few privileged and hell for everyone else by dint of being robbed by the privileged with the government standing idly by or even assisting the privileged).
