Capitalism = Why the American Dream Died | Socialism to Resurrect It
I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. This week’s wakeful video collection starts with impressive songs dedicated to Bernie (revealing a grassroots movement) and ends with a song joining the white and brown people otherwise pitted against each other by the ruling top. 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. Also new insights on recent events and presidential candidates. And, of course, some stuff to read, too.
Stars and channels: musicians, Chris Hedges, Abby Martin (Empire Files), Krystal Ball (The Hill), The Grayzone, Michael Brooks, Kyle Kulinski (Secular Talk), Jamarl Thomas (revealing why many elderly Blacks support Biden), Democracy Now!, The Real News Network, Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK, Inti Illimani and Quilapayun…

Naturally, one thing behind the curtain needs to be looked at, too: that promises were made by politicians in the past but the necessary steps to fulfill them not necessarily taken. Instead, they were kicked down the road for future administrations to deal with, eventually resulting in cities going broke while the local robber barons buy up all the public utilities, parking lots, spaces, and buildings… and make out like bandits collecting fees, raising rents, or running tax-free businesses…). The solution is not, of course, to break the promises, but to cleanse government of the corruption which funnels all wealth and an ever greater share of the local and national economies’ income to the top.
Ending Note: It takes me at least 100 hours a month to research and write for this site and work on my book. Please widely share links to these articles or help in other ways, so this work is not for naught. Donations are really great, too! Thanks. Only together can we change this messed-up world. 🙂
P.S.: There was a moving video about a union rally in NY shared live just now. I hope this link will work for a while:
