1. The People’s Convention

Rise up America against the global oligarchy, against today’s utterly cruel King George served gleefully by both the Republican and “Democratic” Party!

The Peoples Convention 2020 ~ Movement for a People’s Party (Aug 30, 2020)

Presented Albert Einstein quote: The world is a dangerous place not because of those who do evil but because of those who look on and do nothing. (I would add “about it” because of authoritarian slave-minds who think that engaging in politics is “doing nothing” a.k.a. wasting your time. They totally overlook that cases of the government serving its people were ALWAYS achieved through politics pushed by the people. Without that there would be no Social Security, no Unemployment Insurance, and many more often critically needful things. If one refrains from participating in pushing for such things, one does indeed become an accomplice of the evil that ruins so many of our lives.) — Actually, according to brainyquote.com, Einstein really said: “The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” (I always considered him intelligent. So, that fits.)

I especially loved the speech by Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap and right after that Chris Hedges’ speech (and then Lauren Ashcraft!

(and not about Australia this time but the U.S.!)

Honest Government Ad | A message from the White House ~ thejuicemedia (Jul 30, 2020)

Great quote: Exploit the CRISIS to FUNNEL WEALTH from the poor TO THE RICH!

Note: The only (small) flaw is blaming it all on Trump rather than both corrupt parties and their rich puppet masters. (I think Australians have a parliamentary democracy system rather than thatstupid winner take all one we have in the U.S. that gives us a tyranny constructed by two parties working together while pretending to oppose each other.)

Mentally Corrupting Police Culture

Here is a link to an interesting article from a former police officer describing the corrupting culture of this profession:

Confessions of a Former Bastard Cop – Officer A. Cab – Medium

In this piece a former police officer describes the evil police culture that makes police officers behave evilly; having been psychologically convinced that the entire rest of mankind are their immoral, trashy, murderous enemies best to be killed and asked questions later; and he argues for police abolition. Here are some quotes of his article that I recommend to read:

I was a police officer for nearly ten years and I was a bastard. We all were. ”

This essay has been kicking around in my head for years now and I’ve never felt confident enough to write it. It’s a time in my life I’m ashamed of. It’s a time that I hurt people and, through inaction, allowed others to be hurt. It’s a time that I acted as a violent agent of capitalism and white supremacy. Under the guise of public safety, I personally ruined people’s lives but in so doing, made the public no safer… so did the family members and close friends of mine who also bore the badge alongside me. But enough is enough. … ”

Capitalism requires a permanent underclass to exploit for cheap labor and it requires the cops to bring that underclass to heel. ”

This is where we have to have the courage to ask: why do people rob? Why do they join gangs? Why do they get addicted to drugs or sell them? It’s not because they are inherently evil. I submit to you that these are the results of living in a capitalist system that grinds people down and denies them housing, medical care, human dignity, and a say in their government. ”   Continue reading “Mentally Corrupting Police Culture”
