If you have time on weekends to rest on a couch and watch movies, sports, or interesting news shows on TV – being offered mostly crap (and Bill Moyers sadly being gone by now) – this weekly video compilation is a perfect alternative bringing us bright insights into our corrupt corporate rule and how we can fight to take back our stolen world and repair our racketeered lives. It’s mostly a collection of many of the best videos released online during the week. Stars today: Bernie, Tulsi, Chris Hedges, Ralph Nader, Stephanie Kelton, John Spritzler, Russell Brand, Nick Braña, Niko House, Richard Wolff, Lee Camp, Jimmy Dore, Abby Martin, Kyle Kulinski, Mike Figueredo, The Juice Media (great satire!), and more.

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.

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:

Many great news and discussions on socialism & liberty, capitalism’s thorough destructiveness, the Green New Deal, Venezuela, how to make democracy work, fraudulent politics, people’s uprisings, climate change, Bernie’s second coming, the screwing of the poor by the rich (even literally!), and insights in party politics.

The last video weekend included three informative videos on the developments in Venezuela (especially the first was a great comprehensive summary and analysis). Here are some latest updates and interesting conversations — different from the imperialist, warmongering propaganda of our corporate establishment media, that is (the ones in parentheses are less juicy):
The brazenly deceitful propaganda we keep getting fed on Venezuela:

This year, as on some prior occasions, my family had no time and energy to prepare for a festive Christmas break. So we went to a grocery shortly before they all closed on Christmas Eve to buy some tasty tidbits and breads. One star among the latter was a French baguette. Sadly, it broke on the way to the cash register. We noticed it but decided to buy it anyway. It was somehow symbolic for my whole life to me. We decided to make its fracture harmless by eating it first, long before its fracture could dry it out. We even made good use of the fracture by doubling it over in our shopping bag that it otherwise wouldn’t have fit into. Bendable bread. Neat. Best thing since sliced bread perhaps. 😉
Making the best of all circumstances, good, bad, and horrible — that’s been my life. It seemed suitable to celebrate a family holiday that way. Oh, and isn’t Christ supposed to have broken some bread to feed the many? Continue reading “A Broken-Bread Christmas”→
Another great video weekend for those who can find time in this busy holiday season. More great facts and insight on the Yellow West Movement, public mind manipulation, the core nature and effects of capitalism, and so on.
