I. Society: The Crippling Corporate Culture

Here is an old, yet outstanding, speech by Chris Hedges. It’s from April 3, 2013. If you are certain to have heard most of this before and are short on time, you may fast forward to 1:05:32 where his wrap-up starts and hits hard: https://youtu.be/KJ9nvAX-S1g?t=3932 Otherwise, here the clip starts from the beginning:

The Party Fence Sitters

When I watch a video like Robert Reich’s piece on our economic decline (presented below), I have mixed feelings. I agree with much and find it good to share with many for a little economic nutshell that even the life-long brainwashed and continuously deluded among us may understand. However, it also irks me that he makes little strategic exemptions for the mainstream party he has been associated with all his life (and the administration he served in). It makes him a fence sitter when he leaves out that Bill Clinton also contributed to our decline and that $Hillary Clinton rigged the 2016 primaries away from Bernie Sanders whom the American People wanted and would have elected over Trump.

He shouldn’t leave out that – even though each country has dark and dumb elements – Bernie’s message of us needing a political revolution to overcome our economic rigging resonated better than Trump’s neo-fascist message that he is a strong and “wonderful” “leader” who is sooo much better than democracy and that blaming weak ethnic groups like immigrants and Muslims is all the cure we need.

There are always some who will buy such baloney, but not the majority of us. Our majority was deprived of its president, and also many other elected posts, as sadly has become the way our country is run. Reich himself hints at it when he draws politicians as puppets on strings held by the rich who pick who gets on the ballot and keep them loyal with continued bribes:

It’s good to have such alternatives to the establishment’s main media. But for us to make true and real change, we will need a great shift from such fence-sitting so-so alternatives to the still largely unknown voices who go all the way, show the whole picture, point out the high aim we need, and pull few punches.  Continue reading “The Party Fence Sitters”
