The ‘Private Property’ Demon behind Inequality

golden-calf

In a video I will share this weekend, I heard the following phrase: “In the criminal justice system the people are repressed by two separate but equally important important groups: the police who defend private property and the policy makers who criminalize disobedience”. When I heard “the police who defend private property and the policy makers…” my mind spun ahead completing the sentence with “the policy makers who define private property”.

Why did that pop up in my head? Well it is because of the immoral and cruelly corrupt system of human life into which I was born and in which I therefore have had to utterly waste my short time on Earth. It arranges and justifies its inequality and its abuse of people – and even the destruction of our life-supporting environment – on the concept of private property.

And what is that concept of private property? How is it defined for us?

The Putrescent Core of Capitalism

apple

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.   Continue reading “The Putrescent Core of Capitalism”

The Fox in Charge of the Henhouse: Some Stats

When the corporate state goes full bore (or should we say ‘boar’?), you get a complete reversal of the justice system. Fines, imprisonment, and family separations against weak individuals (such as immigrants and all sorts of poor people) soar while the rich and their corporations don’t even get slaps on their wrists anymore. Examples: In the 1st year of the oh-so-swamp-draining Trump Administration, not only did mistreatments of immigrants (which had already been very bad under Obama) ratchet up to new heights, but corporate fines by the Department of (In-)Justice dropped 90%! By the EPA it even plummeted 94%! Nine more agencies dropped their duty to the people by also shocking amounts. To see a bunch of relevant numbers (and graphics usable as memes), check out this article: ‘Law and Order’ Trump Is Soft on Corporate Crime and Wrongdoing

Or, if you have the time and the guts to see how fully blown our corporate takeover is, you can dig into Public Citizen’s full report (PDF).

Sorry for the bad news, but only when we face reality can we change it for the better. Keep visiting Beanstock’s World to find out how we can make substantial change (even with simple measures). Best sign up for notifications of new posts.

Living to Live

The green-blooded moneycrats who rule us, think life is all about money. Well, it is not. That’s why they ruin our lives. Let’s take a look at people who have turned their back on the the corrupt system and hear what they have to tell:

Human connections and interactions count much more in human happiness than material things:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Route 66: Free living and liberty at a rural commune “)

Comment: In my imagination I would love to live in such a commune (except for my physical handicaps and the gross hunt for squirrels who I see neither as nasty tree rats nor tasty morsels). It would be so much better not having to fight over incomes and savings with my neighbors but rather support one other, be fellows and friends rather than desperate strugglers pitted against each other by a system that is set up to do so.   Continue reading “Living to Live”

We Need a Considerate Compassionate Culture

All day, every day, I meet people with virtual blinders on. Last week, in order to help out desperate family members against government reprisals (the details are private) I accepted a menial job in a sweatshop for which I am totally overqualified in terms of education and professional experience but physically underqualified due to bad health. The task is to de-staple, de-eyelet, de-booklet thousands of paper sheets each day to make them scannable. The papers are banking files. It’s unbelievable how many inches of papers are put together for a single person’s single credit by bank clerks many of whom also plaster them with countless staples, metal eyelets, and so forth only for other people to get paid a minimum wage to remove all those troublesome metal pieces again prior to digital scanning. The hand-breaking job reminds me of the movie scene of two guys digging and tossing the dirt into each other’s holes. This dumb job is quite symbolic of the socio-economic system of today in which we modern humans waste away our lifetimes.

One of my colleagues told a local bank branch director that his workers place way too many staples and such on their paperwork requiring a lot of work to remove them again. The director’s only response was laughter. Rather than musing about instructing his clerks not to waste so much time and metal that only raises the banks’ costs for scan preparation he just laughed.   Continue reading “We Need a Considerate Compassionate Culture”
