We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Posts that I especially recommend for Thursday, October 28, 2021

On the latest episode of “Doctors and Scientists,” host Brian Hooker interviewed Jessica Rose, Ph.D., a computational biologist and Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) analyst. Rose discussed the problematic flaws in the VAERS system.
The "they", of course, are the capitalists. The bankers. The mortgage companies. The housing agencies. The alphabet soup of agencies which will squeeze blood from turnips and your progeny’s progeny.

The media is the medium for their poison, all those tricks of the mind, subliminal and overt, messages that cause chaos, the mass hysteria, the constant fear, the rage against the ‘other.’ And, the other are our fellow citizens, victims, most of us, sliding and slipping and slurrying down the proverbial drain.
... what we are currently witnessing in 20/21 is the mother of all blow-outs. But this was always going to be the outcome given the myopic want-it-all-want-it-now of the [capitalist] cultural zeitgeist. We now seem to have reached the financial/economic/political and cultural inflexion point of the existing order. We can only guess at the eventual outcome – an outcome which has germinated in the mental landscape of Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates, and the Great Reset. But I suppose we could always try prayer.
  • Hilarious Failed Facebook Fact-Check On Jimmy! featuring Jimmy Dore on his YouTube (14:51) channel regarding the subject. My reaction: If you don't have time to listen to all of this video, please start at 13:35 to listen to his conclusion.
  • 💥Our Broken Media and What To Do About It by Alan Macleod from Mint Press News. (Note: This post includes a visual and audio interview with two authors who know that fake news and false information have a long history in America--about an hour.) This is a best post
The following post is selected by Brad Fredricks (and his reactions, commentaries, etc.) for this website:
Doctors and nurses say the severity of illness ranges widely and includes abdominal pain, respiratory problems, blood clots, heart conditions and suicide attempts, among others.

.... "We are hearing from members in every part of the country," says Dr. Lisa Moreno, president of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM). "The Midwest, the South, the Northeast, the West ... they are seeing this exact same phenomenon.

.... Meanwhile, there has been an increase in people coming to the ER with more serious conditions, like strokes, and heart attacks. 
My [Fredricks'] comment: It is extraordinary that not once are the authors, nor anyone in popular media, connecting the dots of strokes, heart attacks and blood clots being the very symptoms that were warned of by Nobel Winning Scientists, Researchers, and Doctors. Yet here we are with this mystery rise? At what point does this absurdity land on the ground? 
Do the ones you love a favor, and check in on their health.
