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.
I <3 Richard Wolff.
MarketWatch: Sacha Baron Cohen doubles down on his sharp rebuke of top tech companies, even after Facebook calls him out.
That guy sure posts great stuff! 🙂👍
The extreme arrogance and hubris that is continuously radiated by characters such as these is due to this: they now realize that they allowed throughout their lifetime the circumstances to exist that brought us to this moment; that they failed in their own eyes to prevent the problems that are before us now; but instead of simply stepping aside, acknowledging the truth, and getting out of the way, leaving it clear for others to do the necessary work, they entrench themselves, embittered, and seek to pretend that the problems couldn’t have been prevented, or that they are not as bad as they seem, or that they are beyond the ability of others to solve, or that they are unsolvable by anyone, or, lastly, that they don’t even exist.
Yes, it might seem obvious that Uncle Joe Biden is already our next anointed one and you can check out of this mess and go to bed already.
But by delegating actual, deliberate thought and action to these stunningly moronic poll-jockeys you are abdicating your right and abandoning your responsibility as a being who is consuming air and other shared resources that could possibly be better utilized elsewhere…. 🙂 But maybe you could decide to do it differently this time (yeah!) and research what is important to you (heck yeah!), figure out which candidate best fits that profile (holy guacamole, yeah!), and then cast your one, single, solitary vote (BOOM).
That would feel very rewarding, wouldn’t it??? 🙂💜
