This is a phenomenal presentation by Dr. Richard Wolff on the long-known, glaring flaws of our capitalist system, their dire implications, and, most importantly, humane, enlightened alternatives. This is must-read material for anyone who wants to have an informed perspective on capitalism, Marxism, democracy, freedom . . . pretty much anything, actually.

Joe Biden’s non-apology to Anita Hill casts long shadow over 2020 run
How willing these idiotic primary voters are to hand over power to this childish fool, Joe Biden. Even after this much exposure his failures and weaknesses keep getting excused and ignored. Well, there really is no use feeling sorry for what people choose to inflict upon themselves, their poor, hapless selves, over and over again. With Trump’s election there seems no logical end to the degree of pain the suffering and ignorant are willing to inflict upon themselves.
But really the blame falls on the socioeconomic system and its philosophy or really the utter lack thereof that allows a democratic electorate to become so ignorant as to their own best interests and how to properly govern themselves as human beings or as a nation.

Speaking your voice and reaching out to your elected representatives seemingly could not be any easier than it is right now. Resistbot is a wonderful tool that allows you to painlessly communicate your thoughts, wishes, complaints, congratulations, anything you care to impart, to your elected representatives as well as other institutions, and it also keeps you informed of other important things you might want to know about as a responsible, conscientious citizen of the United States of America.

I will be exhaustively annotating and updating this post going forward as it seems so important and pregnant with relevance and wisdom for our current situation and likely that for years to come.

What a fascinating, insightful perspective she brings to the conversation. Where would we be without her? 😊🤨🤔

Once you cross that line and believe in whatever you like regardless of evidence or facts or truth then your entire mind is up for grabs and you are capable of doing anything.
