Note: Over time these video weekend posts have grown to a very large size. For now they are shrinking since I am stuck in continued education costing me much time in an effort to resurrect a former career to rescue myself from sweatshops and precarious short-term/regular-un/and-frequent-under-employment. You still got hours of enlightening stuff to watch for your weekend, though, instead of pointless sports, bad entertainment, and cable propaganda “news”. Enjoy:

 

I. Great Chris Hedges Speech and Discussion

… from early April 2016, I think, probably shared by me before, but worth witnessing again:

Political Awakening Video Weekend 01-05-2019 (16 videos)

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.

Topics:

  1. Mentality for Change
  2. Our Destructive System
  3. The Anti-Left “Democrats”
  4. The Alleged Progressive Wave in the “D” Party
  5. Sick Mentality: Money, Status, & Pride
  6. Sick & Healthy Mentality: Generosity vs Greed
  7. Democratizing Healthcare & the Economy
  8. Encouragement for 2019

The Putrescent Core of Capitalism

apple

After 16 years of no such thing, I finally managed to go on a vacation intended to heal my deteriorated body and relax my strained mood. A cheap last-minute deal of a flight and low-cost room in a hostel had to do. On our trip, my accompanying family member and I got into a talk with another vacationer. He turned out to have been robbed on his vacation. We invited him to a warm meal which brightened his day having had to live on cheap loaves of bread for a week.   Continue reading “The Putrescent Core of Capitalism”

The Pro and Con Arguments Regarding Democracy

While founders like Thomas Jefferson argued that the only way to ensure justice, fairness, and prosperity is to distribute power and voice among all the affected people; enemies of democracy, fairness, justice, liberty for all, and shared prosperity have always argued that human nature is evil, that democracy therefore becomes a horrendous “mob rule”, and that the best solution is a wise and benevolent ruling ‘elite’ managing a system that keeps wealth, power, and voice away from the majority of the people lest anybody but members of the ruling class (*cough* *cough* ‘elite’) get a say in anything. I just wonder… if human beings were indeed inherently evil, where would that wise and benevolent ruling class ever come from?   Continue reading “The Pro and Con Arguments Regarding Democracy”

Living to Live

The green-blooded moneycrats who rule us, think life is all about money. Well, it is not. That’s why they ruin our lives. Let’s take a look at people who have turned their back on the the corrupt system and hear what they have to tell:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Route 66: Free living and liberty at a rural commune “)

Comment: In my imagination I would love to live in such a commune (except for my physical handicaps and the gross hunt for squirrels who I see neither as nasty tree rats nor tasty morsels). It would be so much better not having to fight over incomes and savings with my neighbors but rather support one another, be fellows and friends rather than desperate strugglers pitted against each other by a system that is set up to do so.   Continue reading “Living to Live”

Short yet Smashing Speech by Chris Hedges

As a follow-up to Monday’s sharing of Chris Hedges’s and Richard Wolff’s great recent conversation and yesterday’s sharing of late Ed Schultz’s Swan Song Speech (less far along but perhaps the exactly right stepping stone for some people who have still a little to catch up), here is another speech by Chris Hedges, a short one this time (only 16 minutes!) but still packing a big punch. Enjoy:
