The Dakotas are suffering a negative 50 degrees right now. How did this happen? Well, Russia, of course. Oh, and don’t blame the fires in California on Climate Change! Naturally, they were caused by Russia!
And the refugee caravans from the South didn’t result from U.S. interference in Latin America on behalf of fruit and oil companies to which our politicians are beholden. No, it wasn’t American-sponsored Contra death squads who ruined those countries, financed by CIA drug trafficking and the Iran-Contra arms deals the Reagan administration secretly ran. Nor does it have anything to do with immigrants thrown into brutal American prisons where they could only survive if they ganged up, thus forming MS-13, and when we deported them back to their homelands they brought the brutal gang culture with them upturning the their native countries. No, it was Russia, of course. Same goes for undocumented immigrants seeking jobs wherever they can get them. American employers who illegally employ them have nothing whatsoever to do with undocumented immigration. No, it’s Russia!

This last video weekend compilation of 2018 has some really jaw-dropping stuff like a recovering former capitalist describing the warped mentality that shackles the capitalist class (and the rest of us) and that used to be his mindset until his business dissolved and he became a human being. He describes how our system brings the worst out in people. Another pearl: the flaw in the American spirit. More stuff: the 7th week of the Yellow Vests, and a lot more. Do take a look.

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):

Stars: Ralph Nader, Jamie Raskin, Richard Winger, April Boden, Chris Hedges, Glen Ford, Glenn Greenwald, Jimmy Dore, Suzie Dawson, Jill Stein, Thom Hartmann, Nancy MacLean (Author of Democracy in Chains), and Anand Giridharadas .
Lots of fundamental stuff: The billionaire class and its world-destructive creed, the millionaire class supporting them, election rigging, sneaky fascism, “starve the beast” getting close to the end-game, the need for a paradigm shift, weak-kneed charity by the rich while continuing to do harm, the need for thid-party power…
I. Fake Left, Careerist Supporters of the 1%, etc.
(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Chris Hedges, Gary Null , and the title: “2018 Interview With Chris Hedges & Gary Null”)
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.”

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.

Essentially, Americans are split into two groups: the privileged and the underprivileged. The privileged range from the super-rich god kings, through the rich, the upper middle class, and maybe still the middle-middle class (depending on where you draw the line). The underprivileged include the lower middle class and the rarely ever mentioned underclass. Continue reading “Our Two Class Society”
