Question: Are We Ready for Our Own Yellow Vests Revolution?

1.) Great video clips. Hopefully you didn’t miss them!
2.) Great article: Yellow Vest Protests- Could We?
3.) Nice follow-up by Jimmy Dore:

Quote from the article: “We hear all the time that the US is the richest country on earth. Does it feel like that to you? Does it look like it when you hear of people dying because they cannot afford … medications? For proof, the media offers the stock market. Problem is, only a fraction of Americans actually have money in the stock market. Or a savings account. It’s hard to invest when you can barely pay rent and feed your family.”

The article suggest we are not ready yet in the U.S. ‘cause we are still too brainwashed, thinking that we are free, that mysterious market forces, immigrants, China, Russia, or personal failure is to blame for our pitiful situation. It’s a good read from a nurse (they see a lot of our misery, nurses do). I highly recommend it. Here is the link again.

As long as we keep letting ourselves be divided from above or believe the bullshit we are getting fed from above, we are paralyzed. The French seem to be ahead of us. Let’s move forward ourselves! Inform ourselves. Get a clue. Then act. And, yes, this here site can help you get informed. So better sign up for notifications of new posts.

Wow! Is this Real? Is the Revolution Starting Now?

Gee… All I heard in the mainstream media was that stingy French people are raving in the street like little children over gas prices. Now things are slipping through that suggest something much, much bigger, something of truly HUGE import for every American and every human being alive!

Three brief videos capture it well. Here is the first clip, a street interview recorded in France:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for WeAreChange and the title: “Total Media Blackout! Paris Is Far Worse Than They Will Tell You!”)

Really captivating quote from this Frenchman in the street (slightly edited for clarity): “Don’t go for wishful thinking. Go for looking behind things, because it’s very clear that that’s what they (the oligarchs) want from us. They want us to go for wishful thinking so at the end of the line we are divided because we are not clear on what really is happening.”

So, is the people’s revolution which so many of us have been yearning for just around the corner? Is it already happening in France, with France as the model for the rest of the world? Can it happen without a people’s party or a well-structured people’s agenda? Is France spearheading the turning point? Let’s hear some more:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas and the title: “Richard Wolff | Masterfully Explains France’s Yellow Vest Movement”)

So, if the understanding and vision of the people is still insufficient to bring about the change we need, at least the momentum seems to have arrived, and the reaching out across traditional divides seems to be starting, at least in France for now, but perhaps unavoidably across the globe, including here in our beloved United States where we traditionally congratulate ourselves for our 18th century revolution which clearly didn’t go far enough, doing away with kings but not the robber barons. So, maybe we will live to see the final step sooner than we thought…

To conclude this little piece, I want to share one more short video. This one is from an American commenting exactly how I feel and think. I haven’t encountered him before, so I don’t know if I agree with him otherwise, but he really speaks for me in this brief video clip, and perhaps for you, too?

There is No People’s Takeover of the “Democratic” Party

(which is why we need to take another route)

The party has proven itself immune against takeover from within. Since in 2016 the neoliberal (A.K.A. corporatist, oligarchy-serving, corrupt, getting-rich-through-bribes) party bosses cheated both Sanders and thereby the American People in the primaries, the attempt at a takeover tidal wave from the bottom has transformed into a mere fake “blue wave” used by the establishment to bring disappointed people back into the folds of the corrupt “Democratic Party” and furthermore pacify upset voters with false hopes until, in the end, when it becomes clear how this attempt failed, they will turn away from politics in disgust, giving up their only chance to save their lives, their country, and their world. This is a tried and true tactic which has for many decades proven itself undefeatable. In fact, despite all the energy and passion poured into the takeover attempt, there has only been a single real defeat of a corporatist party baron. Only ONE! (and sadly this single winner has already bent her knee to the party establishment finding herself on such a forlorn post, just like Bernie Sanders has had to make – or believed that he had to make – horrible concessions on HIS forlorn post).   Continue reading “There is No People’s Takeover of the “Democratic” Party”

Making the American Revolution Finally Come True

statueofliberty

When the world looks at the engraved words of our nation’s founders and early fighters they are deeply moved. No prior statements held such power as the bold proclamations that we are all created equal; with equal rights to life, liberty, and happiness; rights to be ensured by a government allowed to govern only by our consent; a government bound to serve rather than rule us, and obligated to provide for our “general welfare” (meaning a good life for all, not heaven for a few privileged and hell for everyone else by dint of being robbed by the privileged with the government standing idly by or even assisting the privileged).   Continue reading “Making the American Revolution Finally Come True”

Is the People’s Takeover of the “Democratic” Party Working?

Below, I have written some powerful words, or so I hope. But lets first start with an analysis of recent “Democratic” upheavals by Jimmy Dore’s team to give us some perspective and a starting point for putting our heads together:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jimmy Dore and the title: “Ocasio-Cortez & Progressives Win – Is it Enough?”)

(Link: Report on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her spectacular win in the primaries presented here on Beanstock’s World a dew days ago.)

So, is the people’s take-over of the “Democratic” Party working? Sadly, the answer is clearly no. Too many attempts of voting in people’s candidates have failed, succeeding only with a handful who don’t carry enough weight to change the party from within. And once they are in, they face obstacles like superdelegates, party bosses, undemocratic structures and top-down rule, gerrymandering and internal riggings, huge Big Money influence, mobbing and a gang mentality, and so forth. They get turned ineffective by layer upon layer of barriers that have been erected to neutralize the will of the people and even the party base.   Continue reading “Is the People’s Takeover of the “Democratic” Party Working?”
