Culture, Politics, and Elections
One taboo subject is about Wal-Mart. It’s time to not blame constantly the President for he is a victim of the same wicked system as we all are. This doesn’t mean that we ignore the President’s mistakes, but it’s time to expose the evil corporate system that created the mess in the first place (which existed long before President Barack Obama was elected in 2008). I believe in empathy and love plus compassion for the brother President Barack Obama, his family, and all human beings. Yet, I don’t agree with the President on every issue though. So, I want to make that clear. Real success is coming back to our communities and organize for reforms (with demonizing our poorer brothers and sisters suffering poverty in the ghettoes and poor communities. These human beings are our allies). Now, Wal Mart isn’t perfect by promoting corporate welfare. Sometimes, new retail isn’t growing net jobs in a radical way. Wal Mart has been complicit in corrupting public officials, lying about job creation numbers, sex & racial discrimination, low wages, low benefits, and seeking monopoly control over local markets in America. Some new reports have found that top Wal Mart officers worked to hid evidence of how their bribery existed in Mexico (and it continued worldwide). Even the Justice Department is investigating Walmart for its policies. Walmart has funded the political establishment among both parties in order for Wal Mart to continued its economic agenda unabated. Some folks want a Marshall Plan for the cities where independent workers create their own foods, resources, and they develop on their own land. One way to fight for health is to expose Monsanto, GMOs, and hormones. These substances are causing boys and girls to experience puberty earlier. That is why some kids look almost like adults in their teenage years today in 2012. The horrendous dangers of GMOs, Monsanto, and other poisonous substances are well known indeed. Community gardens, small businesses, and community policies are needed, so jobs can be created more rapidly. The Walton are complicit in promoting NAFTA & GATT (jobs are shipped overseas as a product of these rulings, so they can pay as little tariffs as possible), charter schools, union busting, etc. Organic foods should be eaten by us the people.
The Greek elections are coming about. People still want austerity in Greece and austerity historically doesn’t work. Some nationalists parties oppose the austerity measures that were imposed in Greece (by the IMF and the international bankers). I am a nationalist as I believe wholeheartedly in national sovereignty. New Democracy is a nationalist Greek party that can take about a third of the votes in Greek elections. Millions of Greek people want to have a national system that rejects Austrian economics and extreme socialism. The French elections are coming about too. Some people accuse Francois Hollande as continuing the neoliberal policies as Sarkozy did. People already know of the neoliberal agenda of Sarkozy. Sarkozy supports globalization greatly. The run off election deals with President Nicholas Sarkozy of the reactionary Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) and the Socialist Party candidate Francois Hollande. The working class are still suffering in France. Many French citizens oppose Sarkozy. Sarkozy’s anti-immigrant, pro-foreign wars, and pro-extreme law and order policies don’t work. They have failed indeed inside of France. Hollande has made bold plans. He wants to cut France’s budget deficit to euros by 2012. He respects the reactionary European fiscal pact (that can get rid of 115 billion euros in spending). He wants cost and efficiency savings as a means to compete with Germany’s economy. This movie can cause negotiating wage and benefit cuts with the union bureaucracy. He refuses to criticize France’s foreign policy. He backed the 2011 war in Libya and France’s agitation against Syria and Iran. He agrees with Sarkozy’s anti-immigrant policies like the the burqa ban and denouncing halal meat. The so-called bourgeois ironically supports Hollande despite his reactionary streak. Hollande is support by the left front of Jean-Luc Melenchon, the New anti-apitlaist Party (NFPA), and similar forces. Wage cuts isn’t the way to go. France doesn’t need Hollande who wants social cuts to workers’ benefits, anti-Muslim chauvinism, and imperialist warfare. A real solution is a populist candidate that have the people’s interests at heart.
The sick materialist culture today in the West has been influenced by people like Ayn Rand. She was a libertarian. She believe in human selfishness and the scapegaoting of the underdog (in order words, she felt that the individuals should promote their own interests alone without moral concern of helping out the collective as well). In our lives, we have to embrace unselfishness (or selflessness), generosity , and other attributes of a progressive human being. Ironically, many professing conservative Christian love Rand’s philosophies like Glen Beck, Newt Gingrich, Tom Delay, the late William F. Buckley (a Bonesman), Cal Thomas, Linda Bowles, and so many others. Libertarian John Stossel just extremely agrees with the tenets of Ayn Rand. That is why in spite of what the neo-cons say, I respect the minimum wage and a progressive taxation system. Rand’s ideas are contrary to the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and his real followers. Even if you deal with morality in general, it is immoral to promote a self centered viewpoint. She believed in the lie that if someone failed in an endeavor, it is that person’s fault alone. She was a social Darwinist that believe in the culling of the poor and disadvantages. She abhorred social welfare when it was social welfare that brought us out of the Great Depression of the 1930’s (and expanded our standard of living in America including the world). People like Glen Beck want people to leave any church that teaches social or economic justice. It is not immoral nor a sin for any religious body to advocate justice for the poor and equality for all humans of every background without exception. Humans have the right to express self-sacrifice in trying to make society better. Objectivism is a dangerous philosophy, because it can inspire belligerence, arrogance, and a personal hatred of any collective efforts. Rand was a hypocrite on civil rights. During the 1960’s, she blamed black leaders (and Southern racists) for the violations of human rights of African Americans. Ayn Rand stood on the sidelines and didn’t take a strong position in favor of civil rights. Her movement and parts of her ideas are embraced by the neo-cons (like Michelle Malkin), the libertarian Ron Paul movement, and the Austrian economic extremists found in the Republican Party. This doesn’t mean that Ron Paul is wrong on everything that he says. He is right to oppose the war in Iraq, agree with civil liberties, expose the CIA’s terrorism, want to end the War on Drugs, and agrees with national sovereignty. The reality is that unrestricted capitalism doesn’t work and we need real solutions. She could have been deported as an illegal immigrant if the Republicans had their way since she lied in order for her to enter America from Russia.
Now, in the political world, people understand about the elite links to Communism. Yet, folks deny the elite’s links to Austrian economics. Austrian economics is more powerful now since many young folks accept this deficit hawk propaganda. Many Austrian Schoolers indiscriminately slander all Occupy activists with the same brush and then lecture people on being enlightened (when they are not). Also, even Warren Buffett admitted that the super rich is using class warfare against the poor and the super rich are winning. His quotation from the New York Times on November 26, 2006. Numerous administrations have been controlled and ruled by private bankers (many of whom are based in Wall Street). Poverty was a serious problem in the USA before the Federal Reserve Act came about. That is why it is better to replace the privately controlled debt based money system with a publicly controlled debt free money system. We should repeal the Glass Steagall Act, which prohibited the investment bankers from serving as officers of commercial banks). The repeal of that act contributed to the financial crisis. We have the quadrillion dollar derivatives bubble as well. We should give more power to Third Party institutions, have more ballot access, and end the war on terror. Also, we should continue to expose eugenics. Eugenics didn’t die in 1945 at the approximate end of World War Two. It continues today via foundations, plutocrats, and other reactionary extremists agreeing with that evil. The evil eugenicists desire radical population control methods in the world. They hate the family structure, especially if a family is growing in its population. That is why we should promote the family in order for communities to grow (and for civilizations to continue thriving). The limousine liberals also refuse to oppose the draconian police state expansion measures like the Military Commission Act, the imperialistic wars of aggression now, Presidential Directive 51, the Patriot Act, and other policies transpiring now. While we are eating our foods, the Rockefellers, Bill Gates, and others are storing stolen seeds in the Arctic when people are starving to death literally in the world.
