corporate politics - presidential auctions

I was tempted to title this 'Corporate Democracy', but that would be such a glaring oxymoron. It is frustrating to witness the 'relatively' poor people of the world beating each other to death over whether to vote for Trump or Clinton in the 2nd $billion + US presidential auction. Both candidates are representing corporate interests, and a system that is in debt to a handful of

How immigrant voices make democracy stronger

In politics, representation matters — and that's why we should elect leaders who reflect their country's diversity and embrace its multicultural tapestry, says Sayu Bhojwani. Through her own story of becoming an American citizen, the immigration scholar reveals how her love and dedication to her country turned into a driving force for political change "We have fought to be here," she

Undead, part 2: power, freedom, denial

Part 2 of The Tibestian Book of the Undead (read part 1 first ...) Chapter 3 Why am I writing this? Because I kept a diary, every day after I finally acquired paper, but after a century or so of diligently making notes and musings, someone stole it. I'd like to think it will turn up one day, but judging by my location at that time, it was probably used to light a fire or wipe someone's

Capitalism: A Love Story

Capitalism: A Love Story video from Michael Moore. One of the first examples of the pathological wealth cult destroying working people is from Preoria in Illinois. Someone you know, Marty? NEVER believe anything a corporation tells you, especially banks, and more especially through advertising.

global patriotism

The pathological wealth cult, their corporations, banks and puppet politicians use patriotism to dupe the majority into bombing each others' homes, infrastructure and families to death ... for profit. When they say patriotism, they mean nationalist patriotism - an accident of geography, past conquests and media driven cloning - that requires no positive attributes for membership. It's ironic

Pathological Wealth - and solutions

#pathologicalwealth - a hashtag that is overdue! A preamble to the video of Ethos Genesis Post-mechanisation,the production and distribution of basic needs is so simple that we should all be bored stiff. In fact, most people are too busy and exhausted due to the corrupting effects of #pathologicalwealth of the few, and disinterest on self-education by many of the poorest. The following

Kurt Vonnegut - cats cradle

kurt vonnegut - cat's cradle Reissued following the author's death, Cat's Cradle uses ice-9, a crystalline version of water that freezes at room temperature and turns all surrounding water into the same crystalline form, as a metaphor for nuclear fusion; particularly in its weapons form. Ice 9 has no useful purpose, but the distinctly odd inventor (an unknown to his children, especially in

The Last Kingdom - and beyond

The BBC drama The Last Kingdom is a fine story: The 'Teutonic' tribes from Denmark are a totally male dominated race and perpetually at war. The Christians in Wessex promise a better lot for women, and peace, but the state is already corrupted by the power of those with the most land. A meritocracy it certainly is not. Add the Roman model of political organisation and bureaucracy and we

Vanished Kingdoms - The History of Half-Forgotten Europe

by Norman Davies This book, together with Norman Davies' major work Europe: A History (to follow; 1365 pages!) and The Shortest History of Europe by John Hirst are a prelude to my attempt to see where we are now, and why (to follow). This is a fascinating "story" of 15 states, 13 of which most people probably have never heard. But the most condensed wisdom (for me) comes in the introduction and

TTIP = corporate domination of governments

Imagine - there's a knock at your door and a group of shady characters show up with 100,000 pages of small print designed by corporate lawyers to further their interests. They ask you to sign it. You skim through the mountain of carefully orchestrated incomprehensible trickery and say "I fear we might one to make one or two amendments, if that's okay with you, sirs." What the hell is really

The Shortest History of Europe by John Hirst

History lessons at school were uninspiring, as was school. So I've bought three books to remedy the situation. After summarising the three books, I'll publish a conclusion, from the point of view of the majority. Unless you are very rich, this means you :) The gist of this book is the three very different mindsets that characterise the major players in the evolution of Europe from ancient

Bilderberg and Transparency

An excellent blog at the Guardian. It's never clear how much of conspiracy theories are true. That's exactly how conspirators like things to be! But when the group of the richest people and Transparency International USA have the same committee members any claim to democracy is farcical. Get the details from the Guardian bilderberg-2015-a-travesty-of-transparency related: Bilderberg,
