On this show, Dr. Fraad talks about the way the Corona Virus is managed in the US and the terrible hardship it has caused for American families. US families are trapped with added responsibilities and no help or money. For the 1% Covid-19 is an interference but not a tragedy. Their lives proceed with fine take out food delivered, expensive virtual tutoring and in place nannies and maids.They may decamp to the safer shores of the Hamptons.Here class is a matter of potential life or death. Women and children are particularly burdened and potentially endangered. There are sensible ways out.

A patron asks: "Prof. Wolff, a question I realize is a lot in a small box: When empowered employees Google’s or Facebook’s programmers mobilize, they demand economic, environmental, and social ethics. Those pit them against Bernays’s legacy: psychological stress designed to induce compensatory (over) consumption. So how can ethical and democratic firms survive without inducing overconsumption? Do these firms become, in effect, landless communes? If climate change cuts water, arable land, and energy, induced “growth” costs lives."

May 1, 2021 👉 TPTB cannot expect Christian morality and ethics from people they deprived of Christian education. Business and government require moral ethical citizens. We are headed toward economic ruin. 😟

From Appalachia to Wall Street, how the US created an oligarchic dystopia

We unveil a special “Marc Steiner Show” audio documentary on the politics of Appalachia today; then, the group Patriotic Millionaires is pushing for the rich to be taxed more, but will that be enough to repair a deeply unequal society?

The Pentagon is OVERfunded! 😡
« Reply #893 on: June 15, 2021, 03:52:43 pm »

Michael Galant:


Let’s be clear, the Pentagon is not underfunded. In fact, you may remember that just a few weeks ago, President Biden proposed an astronomical Pentagon budget — over three-quarters of a TRILLION dollars :o — for the upcoming year.

But now the arms industry and some of their backers in Congress want even MORE money on top of that $750 billion+ for more unnecessary, dangerous weapons, and defense contractor giveaways.

This is crucial: the American Jobs Plan can’t be about Pentagon funding — it must stay focused on laying the foundation for our future by investing in people-centered solutions.

As the country reels from the crises of racism, economic inequality, unaffordable healthcare, and more — only made worse by the COVID pandemic — we must push those in power to redefine what security actually means and how they use their power to play a positive role in peoples’ lives.

Padding the Pentagon budget with billions of dollars in infrastructure and jobs funding when our communities are critically in need is not how we build the resilience necessary for people to thrive.

That’s why I’m asking you to take two minutes right now to  let Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer know: No money for the Pentagon and arms dealers in the American Jobs Plan

Thank you for working for 🕊️ peace,

Michael, Faith, Abbey, and the Win Without War team

P.S. For those of you eager to cut the Pentagon budget in general, don’t worry. Debates and legislation about those funds will happen through the regular defense budgeting process, just like they do every year. And just like every year, we’re ramping up our fight to cut that waste!
