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)

Bolivian Coup Update 2020-01-02

Bolivia may seem remote and unimportant to many Americans, but there is much to learn from its old and recent history marked by the same forces that ruin our American democracy and lives. The recent coup in Bolivia and the preceding history of the Bolivian grassroots movement and its critique of U.S. imperialism have therefore been intensely covered on this site. As mentioned before, to look up those past and all future reports, simply click this search link.

Bolivia Updates

The recent coup in Bolivia and the preceding history of the Bolivian grassroots movement and its critique of U.S. imperialism have been intensely covered on this site. To look up those past and all future reports, simply click this link.

Here is the latest addition that summarizes a lot of the evil coup acts and the nature of the current regime:

But to keep in mind the coming Christmas holidays, here is some beautiful traditional music from Bolivia – which, if you understand Spanish well enough, will also inform you about the centuries of abuse of the Bolivian people (miners losing their lungs, factory workers their hands, poor people walking barefoot through their entire lives…):

In between there are amazing system analyzing and tactics exposing videos (covering both the U.S. and Latin America) such as one that exposes the deadly alliance between the oligarchs and religiously mind-warped people at the bottom, these top and bottom groups joined together to exalt themselves at an awfully utter expense to nations’ peoples humanity’s future.

1. Hunters & Gatherers’ Egalitarian, Social, Low-Work, Low-Worry & Low-Stress Life ***

There is a reason why in my critique of our abusive current system and promotion of a Good Life for All (incl. No Rich and No Poor but universal prosperity) system I regularly point at how our ancestors lived before resources-hoarding from agriculture and abusive large-population hierarchies ruined human life having us all born into a man-made hell to fizzle out our lives in:

How We Are Being “Civilized To Death” w/Christopher Ryan ~ The Jimmy Dore Show

Comments:

  1. As far as our rapidly changing world goes, let’s not forget that those of us who grew up in the fifties, sixties, or possibly even seventies, grew up with the expectation of picking a profession, contributing to society in this profession throughout our working lives (stable working lives!!!), enjoy hobbies, maybe build or buy a home, and then retire in comfort for the last slice of our lives. But job security went away, retirement security went away. Even healthcare and education did. All was taken by the super rich to make themselves even richer. People like me have been crushed out of their jobs AND PROFESSIONS over and over and over again, losing all our lives savings every time, and seeing ahead of us a bleak future of a last phase of life in utter poverty and helplessness.
  2. As far as trying to return to where we came from goes, there isn’t only hunting and fishing (and other hobbies) that resemble H&G life, there are also other popular activities: parties, sports, and VACATIONS… socializing with other people, traveling around to see nature or villages or town and ruins never seen before. Vacations that aren’t staycations (that poor people like me are often limited to, if in fact we aren’t busy hunting for a new job) do indeed resemble the roaming H&G life! Travel-vacations are such a high mark in people’s lives and so incredibly relaxing and recharging for some reason, aren’t they?
  3. Our great ape relatives: Chimps resemble capitalism or (with the lack of hoardable resources) a simpler form of unequal authoritarianism. Bonobos (an evolutionary recent split from chimps) resemble the “Love not War” Hippie movement or communes that was perhaps sparked to no small extent by the development of birth control. We humans seem to have both instinctual MOs built in.
  4. And kudos for bringing up the vastly important topic so generally avoided: our dying phase that our greed-driven capitalist society is not at all prepared to handle with any form of dignity. An issue we must discuss because it is critical and can also help us tie ourselves together and dismiss the silly distractions with which we are lambasted daily by the establishment.
