Nobody should miss this one: a sequel to yesterday’s Video Weekend and a really precious two hour talk by investigative journalist and articulate activist Chris Hedges that reveals a LOT, really a lot! Since most of us can only make time to listen to such a long speech on weekends – if we are even lucky enough to get weekends off from our ever worsening wage slavery, that is – I am sharing it today as part B of this video weekend. This speech that goes over so many things really deserves a special place.
XVII. Deep Insights
… delivered by Chris Hedges (incl. the pending giant economic crash and likely billionaire-financed rise of Nazi-America):

So, now that the results from the midterms are in, was there a blue wave? Was there a progressive takeover of the “Democratic” Party? (Psst… the answer to both is no. But let’s get into how to make real change.)
|Note: The label “progressive” here stands for pro-people, anti-oligarchy, good lives for all instead of demons ruling us.
O.K., let’s get started answering these questions and drawing important conclusions… Continue reading “Get Smart: The Real Lessons from the 2018 Midterms”

I. Fake Left, Careerist Supporters of the 1%, etc.

Chris Hedges: “People are fed the idea that if they don’t have [wealth] they failed. There is no examination of a system that was so gamed against them from the beginning that they never had a chance.”

(which is why we need to take another route)
The party has proven itself immune against takeover from within. Since in 2016 the neoliberal (A.K.A. corporatist, oligarchy-serving, corrupt, getting-rich-through-bribes) party bosses cheated both Sanders and thereby the American People in the primaries, the attempt at a takeover tidal wave from the bottom has transformed into a mere fake “blue wave” used by the establishment to bring disappointed people back into the folds of the corrupt “Democratic Party” and furthermore pacify upset voters with false hopes until, in the end, when it becomes clear how this attempt failed, they will turn away from politics in disgust, giving up their only chance to save their lives, their country, and their world. This is a tried and true tactic which has for many decades proven itself undefeatable. In fact, despite all the energy and passion poured into the takeover attempt, there has only been a single real defeat of a corporatist party baron. Only ONE! (and sadly this single winner has already bent her knee to the party establishment finding herself on such a forlorn post, just like Bernie Sanders has had to make – or believed that he had to make – horrible concessions on HIS forlorn post).
