- Vaccine Passport Protests IGNORED By Mainstream Media - WHY?!! featuring Russel Brand, a British comedian, discussing (12:49m) seriously from his YouTube channel about the growing pandemic restrictions (or the threats of future restrictions) imposed by government authorities.

Well, how did vaccination rates respond? Far from incentivizing people to get the jab, everyone took off their masks and dared authorities to ask for their papers. This is because after a year and months of egregious restrictions on freedom, people were fed up and looking for some means by which they could pretend to go back to normal. Vaccination rates stayed stuck for the reason that everyone who wanted a vaccine already got it, while the rest possess natural immunity, are wary of the medicine, or were more than willing to accept the risks of exposure.

- Medicare For All, the Squad and the DSA: Who Controls Whom? by Andrew Stewart from CounterPunch. 💥My commentary follows:
You see, the ruling class ever since its founding in the USA has consistently protected its real power of ownership of the economy, but ruling behind the facade of political party politics, not class politics. (The attempts of people to set up socialist governments have always been ferociously and consistently resisted by the capitalist nations.) This facade has given the ruling class a fake social legitimacy, but it is only a facade to fool ordinary Americans. Meanwhile, our masters used real economic power through their ownership of the economy to acquire the overwhelming real power and wealth that we see today.
Fortunately, Stewart has appeared to learned after decades of experience what real power is made of, but for his fellow Americans it appears too late for them to learn such a lesson now that the ruling class has consolidated and concentrated real power in their hands. The capitalist ruling class has used its overwhelming power to set up police and surveillance agencies to contain any opposition that might arise. They have control (via their ownership) of media corporations to create their self-serving "realities", and they don't hesitate to use censorship of views that are inconsistent with their rule. They have control of jobs and careers like never before through their concentration of ownership in an ever diminishing ruling class. And finally, they have extended their rule over a de-facto transnational empire--the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire.
But theirs is a pyrrhic victory because soon their destruction of habitat on our planet Earth, either through their economic activities or a global nuclear war, will end with the extinction of humans and most other species. The destruction of habitat is well advanced--we are seeing signs of this today through the destabilization of the climate. And when our ruling class is convinced that they are losing the war of global control, they might be tempted to launch a desperate last stand through a nuclear war.
