The Humanist Report

Mike Figueredo’s Humanist Report is one of my regular video sources, but being still stuck in continued education courses for resurrecting a former career, I ran out of time putting together yesterday’s Video Weekend compilation. (Another reason was a lot of wasted time searching for reports explaining the British piracy committed on an Iranian super tanker, especially one revealing the truth on the alleged sanction violations (apparently the sanctions used as a justification don’t actually exist).)

Well, Mike put out a whole bunch of videos worth sharing last week (and some the week before). So, here, today comes a catch-up:

 

1. Switching from Private Insurance to Medicare for All is a Huge Win

You will keep your doctor (if you are currently lucky enough to have coverage of any kind). It’s PRIVATE insurances that take them away from you. Medicare lets you keeo them even if you lose or switch your job or start your own business. (and as an employer you won’t have to wrestle with private insurances to offer employees an acceptable healthcare plan, btw!):

China’s State Capitalism Stronger than our Private Capitalism

Or:  China’s “State Socialism” Stronger than our “Corporate Socialism”

After his good explanation (shared here two weekends ago) of how a socialism-inspired economy – best described as state capitalism – boosted the Soviet Union so incredibly well prior to its political collapse (yes: political, not economical!), Richard Wolff moved on to describe China’s route in another video. Unfortunately, this report is below his usually very high standard of deep insight and good explanation, which is why I share this episode reluctantly and only with a longish commentary.  Continue reading “China’s State Capitalism Stronger than our Private Capitalism”

Treating People Like Dogs

You probably heard last week of these news. When I myself heard of the case where asylum applicants (refugees) at our southern border are being told to drink water out of the toilet, I couldn’t help but think that human beings put in detention with your and my tax dollars are being treated like dogs. Not like beloved family dogs. Like detested street dogs.

And why are they treated that way? I think I know why. It’s because many of us working people in the U.S. are also being treated like dogs. Low wages, no job security, no benefits, no healthcare, no life worth living, no future, no dignity, and no liberty other than to go income-less or switch between employers all of whom treat us like dogs. And when we get angry, one of our evil masters comes around and tells us it’s not him and his buddies who are responsible for how they treat us. No, its a group of brown dogs who have an even lower status than us. They are responsible for everything that’s wrong; so let’s go and attack them.   Continue reading “Treating People Like Dogs”

Twenty of the best videos published and found this week, many especially useful in advancing our mindset, understanding what is really going on in our rigged system, and the directional change we – the people – can and must take.

European Thoughts Fitting our Fourth of July

statueofliberty

Independence Day is a special holiday held high and celebrated in different corners of society. For some it is just a brief relief from a never-ending money-earning drudgery. For others it is the holiday of their nationalist notions easily linked to fascist white supremacist ideas stuck into their heads from the top by the rich ruling class and their demagogic minions in politics and the mass media to divert (with xenophobia and hate speeches) their justified anger away from the true culprits and causes of their mutilated lives, thus turning them into a duped army of violent right-wingers and idiot voters. For others, like myself, it is an annual reminder of the great ideals of some of our heroic founding fathers whose liberating ideas spread around the world causing awe and love and hope, and even change — change from monarchies and dictatorships to democracies or even attempts at socialist economies (a natural consequence of the life, liberty, and happiness for all concept).   Continue reading “European Thoughts Fitting our Fourth of July”

Quick Insight: The Espionage Act

There are two ways of learning the nature of a law. One is to read its every word and letter, and try to interpret it as prosecutors and judges will. The second, much simpler and much more accurate way is to look at how it gets applied.

Doing this, the nature of our Espionage Act can be defined in one sentence: “We, the oligarchy can name anyone we don’t like a ‘spy’ and then have them executed or locked away for life. And the people hasn’t rebelled against it gullibly believing our spy smear. Yeehaw!”

Sheesh, what a fine democracy we have become, haven’t we our founders? Why are these whirring noises coming from your graves?

Want to take a deeper look? Listen to Kim (the video is shared at 12:48 minutes in where the heart of the matter is struck, but you can of course rewind to the start if you wish):

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Kim Iversen and the title: “The Dark History of The Espionage Act and Treason in America”)

Our Growing Digital Dictatorship

The spying on and mind control of us is constantly growing. This brief article reveals latest developments and the dark future where we are headed (previewed in China), sharing two informative videos and enhancing them with commentary.

It is also related to the censorship which keeps the vast majority of passionate readers and video watchers of this blog from ever finding out about its existence — for example, yesterday my attempts to post a notice of the latest Video Weekend post on Facebook groups that I am a longtime member of where blocked by Facebook’s oh-so “anti-spam” algorithms (even though I had not posted in a week).Dear readers, I can only recommend that you tell your friends about this blog and subscribe to it (for free, of course) if you haven’t yet.
