Wakeful Video Weekend 2019-10-19 (26 videos)

This weekend collection of wakeful videos has two main sections: (A) much on this week’s candidate issues (esp. real & false progressives) and (B) much on the forces that create right-wingers/neo-nazis and neoliberals/meritocracy-believers & hillbots — and if or how to deal with them. The first group is mostly created from people crushed onto the floor, the second mostly from upper middle-classers who won life’s lottery at least to some extent and are either contemptuous or dismissive and ignorant of those who didn’t. Then these two camps go at each other’s throats without realizing that they are being manipulated from the top to defend the status quo that causes all this division and endless suffering.

So much stuff, I had to move some to a ‘part B’ follow-up.

The Left-Right Division When Deep Down We Agree

Or: The Right-Left Division Isn’t as Real as it Seems

This article is a sequel to A More Relaxed Economy which discussed the UBI aspect of a shared video by NonCompete which I felt needed more mulling over. This sequel now gets into another interesting issue that came up in that video, namely that many “conservatives” or Republicans (or right-wingers) are actually leftists deep down without knowing it . Excavating this hidden treasure could do a lot for all of us. Hence, I will now make the attempt:  Continue reading “The Left-Right Division When Deep Down We Agree”

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Thought Slime and the title: “My First Job: The Lazybones Manifesto”)

Note: I grew up during the tail end of the ‘golden age’ expecting a just and fair life. All I have had is a shitty life. Similarly to this man, I have wished all the time I had never been born.

Happy Thanksgiving 2018 from Beanstock’s World

golden-turkey

As Thanksgiving is coming up and many of us hopefully manage to team up with family or friends, awkward tensions over political issues may arise. Therefore, today I share articles, mini-pieces, and videos to prepare you well.

On Thanksgiving we meet to celebrate our communal connections, our sense of belonging, the things we either have or hope to have some day, or a famous past that we profit from in the present — such as past inventions, medical developments, economic and political developments… uh, oh… maybe not the latter… It may be worth to take a look at a path towards a Good Life for All or at issues that cause tension in our families or circles of friends, and a possible way to resolve them constructively.

For this purpose, I today share links to:

  1. prior Thanksgiving posts worth revisiting and
  2. some videos that may help in overcoming tensions with our fellow celebrants
