The spying on and mind control of us is constantly growing. This brief article reveals latest developments and the dark future where we are headed (previewed in China), sharing two informative videos and enhancing them with commentary.
|It is also related to the censorship which keeps the vast majority of passionate readers and video watchers of this blog from ever finding out about its existence — for example, yesterday my attempts to post a notice of the latest Video Weekend post on Facebook groups that I am a longtime member of where blocked by Facebook’s oh-so “anti-spam” algorithms (even though I had not posted in a week). — Dear readers, I can only recommend that you tell your friends about this blog and subscribe to it (for free, of course) if you haven’t yet.

These are indeed the kinds of champions we need, representatives, candidates, activists, who put pressure on the oligarchy rather than spending all their time calling for big donations from the donor class (the robber billionaires and their thieving CEOs and “think” tanks and 42,000+ lobbyists).

In the interview clip shared below, a caller makes an important point about authoritarian regimes, namely that authoritarianism can camouflage in any present economic or political system. Therefore socialism gets easily smeared by pointing at the Soviet Union where an authoritarian undemocratic regime hid behind the facade of socialism (or communism, depending on which representative or critic was speaking). It’s almost funny considering that the Soviet Union’s economic system wasn’t really socialist or communist but a form of state capitalism where the ruling capitalists aren’t private owners of everything but bureaucratic members of a regime controlling everything, making workers as ruled from above, voiceless, and possibly exploited at their places of work as in any private ownership style capitalist system. If you research the history of the term socialism you will find that it was created around the idea of democracy in our economy, the workers owning the means of production, not an authoritarian regime acting out as the workers’ alleged representative and thus painting itself as socialist. But I digress…

Great interview concerning the Julian Assange case. I fully agree that this case is an effort to make a chilling example of a truth-telling journalist so that no-one ever again dare to spread truth about government malfeasance to the people for fear of being arrested and expedited into the hands of cruel despotic government officials. And we all must stand up against this to fight for our own freedom and a chance to hold our governments accountable.
I must say, Roger Waters really impressed me deeply in this interview. It speaks for itself and covers the main points of importance in this case, including the perverse arguments made by evildoers and their gullible puppets in favor of this persecution. A must-hear interview, especially since even some good-hearted people (like for instance presidential candidate Marianne Williamson as you could see in yesterday’s Video Weekend) are still trapped in the false narratives we have been fed on the mass media:
(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters: WHOLE WORLD Must Focus on Julian Assange Arrest!”)
None of the arguments made by supporters of Assange’s persecution do in fact carry the same weight as our vital need for a free press.

The overarching theme of Wikileak’s Julian Assange, his history, accomplishments, past celebrity status, recent arrest and current instrumentalization in our oligarchy’s war on free speech and democracy, the forces and interests behind his arrest, and the far reaching consequences of it all, even criminalizing freedom of the press and turning truth-telling into a crime. The horrors likely facing him. Also the reasons why powerful politicians and journalists don’t stand up for him and the basic concepts of free press and democracy… There is a lot to be learned this weekend in and around the news and conversations held along this theme. Great words and revelations from lots of remarkable people: Snowden, Chomsky, Greenwald, Chris Hedges, Tulsi Gabbard, AOC, Tim Black, Jimmy Dore, Mike Figueredo, to mention only a few, also various insiders and a really impressive really powerful speech by Kim Iversen. If you have no time to watch anything else, listen to her clip that summarizes a lot.
These videos are very worth watching. So much to learn and be up to speed about.

Our mentality is the basis for deprivation or change. This video compilation digs into a lot of that as well as other important things like fake politics, harmful economics, and Medicare for All as a fighting ground to democratize our economy (by Kelly Coogan-Gehr from National Nurses United), and so forth. — Information like this, which you never see on the mainstream media, is the education we need to bring about positive change.

… or do we live in a post-constitutional age, oppressed by a secretive criminal government held in the claws of a corporate billionaire oligarchy hiding behind the curtain?
This post shares two very enlightening videos about our oligarchic government lying to the public, committing crimes, mangling the Constitution, and maiming whistleblowers who let us know about it: Continue reading “Can we Trust our Government?”
Imagine getting a 30-year prison sentence for having suffered a miscarriage. That’s what we get when authoritarians (esp. right-wingers, particularly the “religious” right) with a totally warped sense of justice rig the law and government to invade people’s lives and privacy, and to rip away their sovereignty in order to force their warped moral code on them. Cases like these are not just about women’s rights but what government and our laws should stand for in an enlightened civilization:
