Russia or the Establishment? — Who’s Our True Enemy?

enough-already-of-the-media-storm

So, the manipulators for the oligarchy keep trying to get us to exhaust our energies over getting Trump impeached. And what then? Corporatist white supremacist Mike Pence? Another Shillary Clinton? Would that really help us making ends meet? Would we thereby no longer have to work longer hours for less pay? Would our corporate funded-politicians start listening to us and our needs again? Would our elections magically stop to be rigged against us, not even allowing us candidates we approve of? Continue reading

Putting on Blinders: The Musée du Bagage (PS)

The other day I came across a radio documentary about a French luggage museum (much less banal-sounding in French: “Musée du Bagage”). The reporter made a big deal of the large travel and sea chests which were in use a hundred years ago, pointing out that traveling with thirty pairs of shoes was no rarity in the year 1900. He continued to describe how a class of professional porters back then was operating in the streets to cart these huge chests between train stations, hotels, and other destinations. Then he said that this profession had by now disappeared since today we travel lightly, with baggage we lug around ourselves. He went to the trouble of adding yet another justification for the huge, heavy chests of the past: namely that, back in 1900, the ladies were changing their clothes six times a day.

That’s the moment where I couldn’t contain myself any longer and uttered a comment about how our “journalists” of today keep turning a blind eye to the kleptocratic rich folks who run our often sad lives and the huge inequality in our society which we have inherited from those past times he was reporting on. Did he truly not realize that he was comparing apples and oranges?

Fidel Castro Obituary – An Opposing Viewpoint

Report: Despite US Propaganda, Fidel Castro Beloved Worldwide

(Note: if the video to which this article links gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Despite US Propaganda, Fidel Castro Beloved Worldwide”)

This week, we have seen despicable footage of people celebrating the death of another human being. Personally, I find death from “old age” after a few decades on Earth – which is barely enough for most people to even grow up – a great tragedy built into the human condition and something we should perhaps do something about instead of constantly fighting among ourselves. To celebrate someone’s death, I must be certain he or she was a mass murderer, torturer, or such. I cannot establish this state of affairs for Castro. Continue reading

How our Presidential Debates Are Used to Manipulate our Elections

  1. The Commission on Presidential Debates which runs our debates is itself run by the two major parties.
  2. All other parties and candidates are excluded from the debates. The importance of this cannot be overstated! Jesse Ventura won his race for governor ONLY because he was admitted to its debate. Before that debate he was polling only a few percent. People need to see and hear their candidates!
  3. The questions are secretly given to the establishment’s candidate beforehand. (at least with Hillary Clinton in 2016 we learned about it)
  4. This also means, the questions don’t actually come from concerned citizens. They are scripted and staged by the establishment which runs the whole show.

Conclusion: We the people must organize our own debates or hope and go for debates or in depth interviews organized on the side like they eventually were this year (2016) in response to the raised public interest by Democracy Now, RT AmericaTYT, and PBS’ Tavis Smiley. (these links are pointing to the actual debates and interviews)
