Happy New Life!

bs-happy-new-life

For many of us, each Happy New Year turns into yet another Crappy Old Year. Who or what is to blame? We are trained to blame ourselves, but are you, or am I, really guilty of causing economic crashes or sudden health crises, mass lay-offs, and the like? Are we the creators of a profit-driven health insurance system that refuses to cover millions and covers many others only incompletely, so that the majority of American bankruptcies result from health crises? Are we really to be blamed for not being rich when our society is formed like a wealth pyramid with an impoverished broad base and a tall wealthy spire that rises many miles above the rest of the pyramid, all the way into outer space?

Grassroots News 10-31-2018

While a lot of people focus on the upcoming midterm elections, their candidates, polls, and votes; there is grassroots work to be done going beyond merely voting:

 

I. End Money in Politics

Represent.Us, the organization which fights money in politics through ballot initiatives all over the country announced two days ago:

The most impactful thing you can do to fight corruption right now is call voters in South Dakota and give them the facts on Amendment W.

repus-sd

South Dakota is where voters passed America’s first statewide Anti-Corruption Act, and where politicians overturned the will of the people in a display that outraged the country.

If the lobbyist-funded misinformation campaign succeeds and the Anti-Corruption Amendment loses, politicians everywhere will think they can ignore the will of voters too. …

If passed, Amendment W will:

  • Restrict lobbyist gifts to politicians.
  • Ban campaign contributions from unions and corporations to candidates and political parties.
  • Ban foreign money from South Dakota politics.
  • Stop politicians from using public office for personal gain.
  • Toughen ethics law enforcement.
  • Protect voter-approved laws from legislative meddling.

End Note: They are hosting virtual phone banks every day for the remaining days. You can join calling voters in South Dakota and help win this crucial fight that will set a precedent for the whole country.

 

II. Rescue Valuable Media

CounterPunch is one of the few remaining truth-telling and establishment-fighting magazines. Since outlets like that can’t survive on advertisement money (read: corporate bribes), it depends on donations.

You can help Ensure CounterPunch Won’t Have to Cut Operations.

It is, regrettably, no exaggeration to say that we are living in an era of irrationality, deception, confusion, anger, and unfocused fear – an ominous combination, with few precedents. There has never been a time when it was so important to have a voice of sanity, insight, understanding of what is happening in the world. CounterPunch has performed that essential service with unusual success. It is a matter of paramount importance to ensure that it will continue to do so, with even greater resources than before.” – Noam Chomsky

 

III. Inside-Outside Strategy

Since the takeover of the “Democratic” Party from within seems to be ebbing out, I should take the opportunity to remind everyone of my inside-outside strategy suggestion: make pressure on the establishment both from within the DP and from the outside (nut crackers need to squeeze from two sides!). The outside pressure comes in the form of building a strong new party that truly represents the American People (not the oligarchy), takes no corporate and billionaire’s donations, and has a bottom-up democratic structure, a true grassroots party in other words — one that either forces the “Democratic” Party to reform itself in its image or replaces it when it continues to resist this reform. Setting up a new party takes work, and you can volunteer.

Electoral & Economic Integrity – Not Just Votes & Jobs for All

QuickyConfession: Motivation

To be frank, I am tired of spending my whole life searching for survival opportunities and pouring my utmost efforts into them. Every survival opportunity gets destroyed about as soon as I latch on to it. And this has become the life for countless millions of my human brothers and sisters. A precarious life like ours – a life of broken dreams and endless survival struggle, despair, misery, anguish, and hopelessness – is no life worth living. In fact, I consider it no life at all. I want to end the systemic corruption that is behind all this misery, so that at least younger generations may be saved from this Hell on Earth that murdered my life in my cradle. Is that hard to understand?

If not, then you now know why I squeeze time out of my little off-work or sleep time to write about political/economic issues. You may read them out of similar motivation. My plea to you: If you find my writings and the videos I share meaningful, please share links to my posts. Thanks. Power to the People!

In solidarity,

Dirk Droll

Manifesto of the Elders (addressed to the Young)

Some people, when they begin to realize how long and deeply the cruel corruption of our socio-economic and political system has been entrenched, feel like there is no more hope.

My response to that is this declaration:

Manifesto of the Elders

When you have been crushed as much as many of us, there is no point in giving up. We have one thing left to do on our way out of this hell called “life”, and that is to do our part so that future generations won’t have to suffer like us. While the millennials are beginning to revolt because they see no viable future ahead of them unless they upturn the insanity of the system, those of us who were broken decades earlier and robbed of all hope for ourselves have one last thing to do.

Why a New Party: Insightful Discussion between Jimmy Dore & Nick Braña (commented video)

An uplifting start into a new week. Find out why we need and can have a powerful new political party to kick the butt of the corrupted old major parties:

  1. The major parties are fiercely immune to change from within and characterized by anti-democratic internal command structure beholden to Big Money. Challenging newbies are caught in a web of wheeling and dealing.
  2. It will take the weapon of a new party ready to replace a corrupt old party to overcome the establishment.
  3. Getting a new party on the ballot in all 50 states is not nearly as hard as we keep getting told. Much easier than taking over a huge money-governed party from within.
  4. America is more ready than ever for a new party. Almost two out of three Americans are calling for a major new party now.

Listen to what Nick Braña, National Political Outreach Coordinator on Bernie Sanders’ presidential 2016 campaign and one of the founders of Our Revolution, has to reveal about the establishment’s walls and how to break them down:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “3rd Party Formation Very Doable Says Former Bernie Official ”)

What do you think about it? I think: let’s make it happen. And to do this, work on bringing change-desiring people and existing third parties and challenger candidates together, supporting each other, working out a big tent platform of changes we all want. Such a coalition may by itself make change possible and – if things come to a head – give birth to a grand new party, a People’s Party.

Most of the web presence and action seems to be happening on Facebook (a page and numerous groups):

 

P.S.:
A common question: Why not simply support the Green Party which advocates many or all of the broadly desired changes? Answer: people wanting change are more likely to try a new party than one that has been around but small. It’s the psychology of confidence. Also, the Green Party has suffered a lot of smears and misrepresentations that circulate through people’s heads. Other than that, the Green Party is awesome and well worth voting for at every chance. It would (or will) make a great member in a People’s Coalition.
