School yourself about the economy that is dictating the quality of your life! 🙂 <3
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.
The wealthy (Herr Drumpf et al.) play stupid bigots living in the hinterland like strings, sucking every loose penny from them, and everyone loves it while it’s happening. The greedy parasites leverage whatever power they have to loot the place while decrying their victimization, further inciting the stupid, rural bigots who serve as a shield of cattle to distract and obscure the looting in progress.
Finally, though, the party has to end. When there’s nothing left to loot, the parasites will look elsewhere, which they’ve already done, because they prepared their escape from the looming mess long ago.
What is your plan?
Maybe you could, just an idea, prevent things from getting to that point and choose a different direction, a new direction for America and support honest visionaries who have actual ideas such as Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, The Squad, AOC, Ilhan Omar, etc., people with integrity, who actually are who they claim to be, they back up what they say.
Basically, contracting equals fraud. Contracting equals diminished quality, diminished product, diminished customer service, diminished satisfaction, diminished lifespan, diminished value, diminished society. Society is diminished by the institution of contracted labor. Fuck contracting. It’s a way to cover your ass at the expense of workers, i.e., people who actually do work in the world as opposed to sitting on piles of money and making phone calls and pushing buttons. Contracting is a way for cowards, ignoramuses, and the lazy and recalcitrant to avoid responsibility and legal liability.
I’m tempted to read his book. I have a lot of other stuff to do right now though. 🙂 If anyone else has read it, however, please do tell me what you thought of it.
This is completely shameful and horrific, a product of historic manipulation by and interference of imperial powers.
Feels like it! 😐 One more reason to GTFO.
And “Governor” Phil Bryant is a buffoon. Denial & ignorance (best case) and actively looting your historically suppressed constituency (worst case) are both very grave errors/crimes/sins/mistakes/acts/choices in an actual democracy. I’m hoping for massive amounts of cosmic justice, whether I’m privileged enough to witness it or not. 🙂🕊️♥️🕉️☸️🌍🌌🐢🦄

This references an article I wrote about previously:
As Mr. Wolff points out, the New York Times continues its seemingly proud tradition, one it shares with plenty of other purveyors of truth, of stopping short of assigning blame where it is due and responsibly questioning the premises of this situation.
