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!):

A Broken-Bread Christmas

gareth-harper-175342-unsplash-cropped

This year, as on some prior occasions, my family had no time and energy to prepare for a festive Christmas break. So we went to a grocery shortly before they all closed on Christmas Eve to buy some tasty tidbits and breads. One star among the latter was a French baguette. Sadly, it broke on the way to the cash register. We noticed it but decided to buy it anyway. It was somehow symbolic for my whole life to me. We decided to make its fracture harmless by eating it first, long before its fracture could dry it out. We even made good use of the fracture by doubling it over in our shopping bag that it otherwise wouldn’t have fit into. Bendable bread. Neat. Best thing since sliced bread perhaps. 😉

Making the best of all circumstances, good, bad, and horrible — that’s been my life. It seemed suitable to celebrate a family holiday that way. Oh, and isn’t Christ supposed to have broken some bread to feed the many?   Continue reading “A Broken-Bread Christmas”

To End Wage Slavery

Something not everybody yet understands is that we need to work on our perception and mentality in order to solve our zoo of severe societal problems, such as our bad economy, our corrupt politics, denied healthcare, rampant debt and bankruptcy, the lack of good jobs with benefits, the lack of personal liberty, a world of repeatedly crushed dreams — a plethora of troubles that reflect a transition from a cooperative, neighborly, compassionate human culture to a wolf-eat-dog society.

Since we are so caught up in our current superficial fights over an economic band-aid here or a party-political tactic there, we are often too distracted to look at the underlying causes or even be aware of them. One way to bring them back to the surface is to briefly glance at our preceding generations in which our world changed to the messed-up world we live in today.

Glance #1: Most of our ancestral generations lived as hunters and gatherers, having no bosses to answer to and no money to worry about. Their work was authentic and genuine: hunt and gather food, make your own clothing, housing, and tools, and share with your tribe members as needed (both giving and receiving, thus everybody benefiting from strength in numbers).   Continue reading “To End Wage Slavery”

Video Weekend 04-07-2018, Part B: Jimmy Dore (5 neat videos)

Last weekend, I featured Lee Camp a lot (including a “So, who is Lee?” segment sharing a more personal interview with him). This weekend, a lot of great Jimmy Dore videos piled up, most of which I didn’t have the time to include in yesterday’s video weekend compilation. To repair that, here are the ones I couldn’t include yesterday but would have liked to. They are some of his best. If you missed them during the last few days, I hope you have the time today to watch them. Enjoy! Especially #2 is superb!

 

I. Good one: Behold the lock-step march of the establishment’s propaganda-spewing Big Media monopoly, spiked with their script-reading talking heads (all massively overpaid so they won’t question their treacherous work). Jimmy reminds us how this propaganda army was enabled by Bill Clinton and the neoliberal Fake-Democrats, out to destroy the last vestiges of democracy together with their Republican buddies while pretending to protect it. The work of two corrupt political gangs… pardon me… “parties”:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Sinclair Media Nightmare Made Possible By Clinton & Democrats“)

 

II. Excellent one: Upsetting the apple cart. Tim Canova, who challenged utterly corrupt Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2016 and – by all appearance – was cheated out of the race with election fraud just like Bernie Sanders, has left the “Democratic” Party to fight Wasserman Schultz from the outside since fighting from the inside was made impossible by the corrupt party bosses. This led to a really cool conversation with Jimmy Dore about our rigged elections (and the Russian phantoms) with some hard facts:

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Tim Canova Leaves Democratic Party & Support Increases”)

The point: when retaking democracy from within the “Democratic” Party is impossible (because of systemic criminality in the party leadership), then the fight must be brought from the outside.   Continue reading “Video Weekend 04-07-2018, Part B: Jimmy Dore (5 neat videos)”

Our Abusive Co-Dependent Economy and its Hegelian Alternative (audio)

An interesting speech by Richard Wolff approaching the solution to our miserable economy from a philosophical angle:

Petition

The current federal budget decimates Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid by $1.8 trillion (kicking millions of seniors, children, and disabled people off their health care), cuts $215 billion from food stamps, $203 billion from college students, and $1.5 trillion from schools, highways, medical research, and environmental protection — all that to make the super-rich richer through special tax cuts and such for them. Here you can sign a petition against this theft from the top.
