Wakeful Video Weekend 2020-01-05 (27 videos) – Main Theme: Our Inequality

Understanding better our unequal society. And coming to realize that we need to create a nurturing environment that meets basic needs for everybody, rather than continuing to support a system that leeches everything away from almost everyone and places all that stolen prosperity into the vaults of a handful of king-like super-rich — plus their rich and upper-“middle-class” guards. A need to build strong, healthy communities as a basement for and part of revolutionary change before the catastrophic point of no return completely ends our future (the latter only a little discussed).

Since this holiday week produced less vital videos than usual, I dove through older ones that draw a comprehensive picture from which to grow our awareness and build plans.

Channels: Moyers & Company, hearus1, PBS NewsHour, Ubiquity, TEDx Talks, Bernie Sanders Campaign, PRIMO NUTMEG, Democracy Now!, CODEPINK, NonCompete, and more.

Topics (Categories):

  1. Living in our Times (Rich or Struggling) II
  2. Education: Our Toxic Culture of Education
  3. Socialism = Common Ownership (& Liberty from Lords)
  4. Neoliberalism fuels Right-Wing Populism
  5. Billionaires: Are thieves legitimate “winners”?
  6. Iran (esp. the Recent U.S. Terror Strike)
  7. The Past & Future (and What to Do)

If Money Didn’t Rule Us

A brief video clip indirectly insightful of the flaw of our system (although the video hints that following your passion will become livable, which maybe once was partially true for a significant number of lucky folks… maybe during my parents’ generation… but which defintiely never worked in my life because our system had become way too rigged for profits at the top and gouging below). Still, the clip gives a hint of how or world SHOULD be:

What Would You Do If Money Didn’t Matter? | Short Film Showcase ~ National Geographic

And, by the way, this is the main reason of why a citizen’s dividend (often called a UBI, a fair slice of the economy unrightfully owned only by a few privileged rich folks when it should belong to us all)… why this would get us much closer to a humanitarian world for humans to live in, instead of a capitalist hamster wheel fueling the rich lords and wasting all our lives.

The video gives a glimpse of what our bright future, if we make it happen, could look like, without bothering with the details of how to make it happen… just giving a glimpse of the vision that should lead us.

Merry Christmas.

 

P.S.: Oh, and in case you are tired of standard X-Mess songs, The Revolution Continues shared some alternatives today. 😉
