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”

Mississippi, ICE, ISIS, “Illegal Aliens” – And Some Rational Thoughts

In the aftermath of the recent ICE raids and the outrage on both sides (one legit, the other absurd) some reasonable thoughts finally emerged. Thoughts everyone should mull over. The following video presents some of them and my commentary below goes further:

 

11 Year Old Girl Tearfully Pleas For Father’s Release From ICE Custody
The Majority Report w/ Sam Seder

That terrible government official in the shared video above (someone I admit to call an oligarchy pig in the back of my mind) speaks of “criminal search warrants”. I must ask: How the heck do we, the people, let these power peddling corrupticians get away with criminalizing misdemeanors and labeling people as illegal? How can any honest and morally upstanding person put entering a country without a visa on the same level with committing murder, rape, or child kidnapping (the latter done by the same “police” forces who go after this supposed “crime”)?  Continue reading “Mississippi, ICE, ISIS, “Illegal Aliens” – And Some Rational Thoughts”

1. Satire: “Honest Government Ad” on Climate

Humor helps dealing with serious problems. It decreases resignation and boosts persistence and strength needed in the fight for the much needed change. In addition, discovering the absurdity of ongoing policies is often easier when looking at other countries as we can take a view not so obscured by cultivated preconceptions. Hence here is another amusing piece from Australia:

I like a comment that was left on this video on Youtube:

You’ve never failed to impress me with every single one of your ‘honest government ads’

The salt is real.

The anger is real.

The satire is real.

I love you.

The Humanist Report

Mike Figueredo’s Humanist Report is one of my regular video sources, but being still stuck in continued education courses for resurrecting a former career, I ran out of time putting together yesterday’s Video Weekend compilation. (Another reason was a lot of wasted time searching for reports explaining the British piracy committed on an Iranian super tanker, especially one revealing the truth on the alleged sanction violations (apparently the sanctions used as a justification don’t actually exist).)

Well, Mike put out a whole bunch of videos worth sharing last week (and some the week before). So, here, today comes a catch-up:

 

1. Switching from Private Insurance to Medicare for All is a Huge Win

You will keep your doctor (if you are currently lucky enough to have coverage of any kind). It’s PRIVATE insurances that take them away from you. Medicare lets you keeo them even if you lose or switch your job or start your own business. (and as an employer you won’t have to wrestle with private insurances to offer employees an acceptable healthcare plan, btw!):

European Thoughts Fitting our Fourth of July

statueofliberty

Independence Day is a special holiday held high and celebrated in different corners of society. For some it is just a brief relief from a never-ending money-earning drudgery. For others it is the holiday of their nationalist notions easily linked to fascist white supremacist ideas stuck into their heads from the top by the rich ruling class and their demagogic minions in politics and the mass media to divert (with xenophobia and hate speeches) their justified anger away from the true culprits and causes of their mutilated lives, thus turning them into a duped army of violent right-wingers and idiot voters. For others, like myself, it is an annual reminder of the great ideals of some of our heroic founding fathers whose liberating ideas spread around the world causing awe and love and hope, and even change — change from monarchies and dictatorships to democracies or even attempts at socialist economies (a natural consequence of the life, liberty, and happiness for all concept).   Continue reading “European Thoughts Fitting our Fourth of July”

Happy New Life!

bs-happy-new-life

For many of us, each Happy New Year turns into yet another Crappy Old Year. Who or what is to blame? We are trained to blame ourselves, but are you, or am I, really guilty of causing economic crashes or sudden health crises, mass lay-offs, and the like? Are we the creators of a profit-driven health insurance system that refuses to cover millions and covers many others only incompletely, so that the majority of American bankruptcies result from health crises? Are we really to be blamed for not being rich when our society is formed like a wealth pyramid with an impoverished broad base and a tall wealthy spire that rises many miles above the rest of the pyramid, all the way into outer space?

Question: Are We Ready for Our Own Yellow Vests Revolution?

1.) Great video clips. Hopefully you didn’t miss them!
2.) Great article: Yellow Vest Protests- Could We?
3.) Nice follow-up by Jimmy Dore:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for The Jimmy Dore Show , and the title: “Why French Protestors Have 70% Approval From Citizens”)

Quote from the article: “We hear all the time that the US is the richest country on earth. Does it feel like that to you? Does it look like it when you hear of people dying because they cannot afford … medications? For proof, the media offers the stock market. Problem is, only a fraction of Americans actually have money in the stock market. Or a savings account. It’s hard to invest when you can barely pay rent and feed your family.”

The article suggest we are not ready yet in the U.S. ‘cause we are still too brainwashed, thinking that we are free, that mysterious market forces, immigrants, China, Russia, or personal failure is to blame for our pitiful situation. It’s a good read from a nurse (they see a lot of our misery, nurses do). I highly recommend it. Here is the link again.

As long as we keep letting ourselves be divided from above or believe the bullshit we are getting fed from above, we are paralyzed. The French seem to be ahead of us. Let’s move forward ourselves! Inform ourselves. Get a clue. Then act. And, yes, this here site can help you get informed. So better sign up for notifications of new posts.

Wow! Is this Real? Is the Revolution Starting Now?

vlad-tchompalov-219130-unsplash-scaled-down

Gee… All I heard in the mainstream media was that stingy French people are raving in the street like little children over gas prices. Now things are slipping through that suggest something much, much bigger, something of truly HUGE import for every American and every human being alive!

Three brief videos capture it well. Here is the first clip, a street interview recorded in France:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for WeAreChange and the title: “Total Media Blackout! Paris Is Far Worse Than They Will Tell You!”)

Really captivating quote from this Frenchman in the street (slightly edited for clarity): “Don’t go for wishful thinking. Go for looking behind things, because it’s very clear that that’s what they (the oligarchs) want from us. They want us to go for wishful thinking so at the end of the line we are divided because we are not clear on what really is happening.”

So, is the people’s revolution which so many of us have been yearning for just around the corner? Is it already happening in France, with France as the model for the rest of the world? Can it happen without a people’s party or a well-structured people’s agenda? Is France spearheading the turning point? Let’s hear some more:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Jamarl Thomas and the title: “Richard Wolff | Masterfully Explains France’s Yellow Vest Movement”)

So, if the understanding and vision of the people is still insufficient to bring about the change we need, at least the momentum seems to have arrived, and the reaching out across traditional divides seems to be starting, at least in France for now, but perhaps unavoidably across the globe, including here in our beloved United States where we traditionally congratulate ourselves for our 18th century revolution which clearly didn’t go far enough, doing away with kings but not the robber barons. So, maybe we will live to see the final step sooner than we thought…

To conclude this little piece, I want to share one more short video. This one is from an American commenting exactly how I feel and think. I haven’t encountered him before, so I don’t know if I agree with him otherwise, but he really speaks for me in this brief video clip, and perhaps for you, too?
