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.

  • SCOTUS weighing Covid jab mandate; death toll in question features a news report for the first 1/3 on the post, which assumes the accuracy of data reported by corporate media, followed by Ben Swann's assessment of the mandates for the remainder of the post--from RT America's channel on YouTube (08:34). My reaction: My living situation in a co-op in which the mortgage is being backed by HUD which follows OSHA mandates, is being affected by those mandates. The popular maintenance man and office manager have refused the experimental vaccines with the result that they have been forced to resign. These are key employees.
  • Are the events of 9/11, the covid pandemic, the event on 1/6/2021 like the Reichstag fire that led to the dictatorship of the Nazi Party? by Ron Horn for my weblog Surviving Capitalism (Not). The short answer is "yes". My brief commentary provides a further explanation:
These contrived events are used to influence Americans to passively follow the diktats of government despite the human rights guaranteed under the Constitution that was forced onto the ruling class, or the reverent "Founding Fathers", by the people to adopt the Bill of Rights in order for the latter to accept the new Constitution. The latter, in its original form, was solely concerned with the protection of the rights of property.
Recall the Reichstag fire which preceded that takeover of Germany by the Nazi Party in 1933. This incident is a brief report from ThoughtCo under the subheading "The Dictatorship Begins". Please review this link.

We have already reduced our privacy and legal rights after the 9/11 event following the passage of the Patriot Bill and its extensions. The covid-pandemic mandates have also reduced our right to choose medical interventions, travel and to conduct normal business, and the event on 1/6/2021 is on its way to further restrict our legal rights. The ruling capitalist class is chipping away at our Bill of Rights that is a part of the Constitution until it is completely irrelevant. Thus, we will have fascist rule by the billionaire capitalists essentially the same as that which occurred in Nazi Germany in 1933.
As Kamala Harris compares 1/6 to 9/11 and Nancy Pelosi introduces the cast of Hamilton to sing about democracy, today's inanity should not obscure its dangers.
Later, he writes:

Keeping Americans hooked on fear — of Putin's takeover of the U.S., of COVID, of an imminent fascist coup — is their only hope for relevance, profit, and purpose. They can shower themselves with as many Pulitzers as they want for fake Russiagate stories and spend all day applauding one another on social media, but they know they are widely despised and distrusted. Posturing as the bulwark against Fascism and Defenders of Democracy — which in turn depends on the existence of an insurrectionary movement — is their only hope for finding meaning. But cowards and propagandists who weep and engage in public therapy when confronting the slightest discomfort do not make for convincing super heroes.
The fear matrix is depending on you to activate and obey their time travel machines — televisions, smartphones, social media, and all that. They are censoring and programming and conditioning as never before. They’re counting on you to surrender the moment to them. But none of their devious tactics matter if you stay consistently present. Their deception and their desperation only become more obvious and palpable.  You see, the good thing about our minds being so susceptible to suggestion is that we can control what “suggestions” we allow to enter and influence.  
And, above all, don't listen to media corporations and their propaganda while trying to access the news. The advice for all other corporate sources regarding entertainment (films and TV), history, and social media which reports corporate-sourced news.
  • A review of DISINTEGRATION Indicators of the Coming American Collapse by Andrei Martyanov" by Ron Horn for my weblog Surviving Capitalism (Not)
Because of my reading limitations, I didn't read the entire book. After reading the introduction, a bit of chapter 1, and the last two chapters of this book, I've been left wondering why Pepe Escobar recommends following Martyanov. The latter complains about everything, and is clearly disenamored of life in the USA. Although he has made frequent trips back to Russia, I think that he thinks he made mistake in emigrating from his homeland. Still, he may have the necessary qualifications to follow his advice and stop the aggressive policies that are threatening both Russia and China.
I found the best relevant biography of Martyanov from his publisher, Clarity Press:
ANDREI MARTYANOV is an expert on Russian military and naval issues. He was born in Baku, USSR in 1963. He graduated from the Kirov Naval Red Banner Academy and served as an officer on the ships and staff position of Soviet Coast Guard through 1990. He took part in the events in the Caucasus which led to the collapse of the Soviet Union. In mid-1990s he moved to the United States where he currently works as Laboratory Director in a commercial aerospace group. He is a frequent blogger on the US Naval Institute Blog. He is author of Losing Military Supremacy, The (Real) Revolution in Military Affairs, and Disintegration: Indicators of the Coming American Collapse. 
After having read his views expressed in Martyanov's latest book, I think that Escobar's recommendation was based on his fear that our Pentagon generals and political officials will create a horrible mistake in militarily challenging Russia (and China) as many recent events confirm. According to Martyanov, these war-hawks are severely deluded into thinking that the US/British/Zionist Empire could prevail by any military attack on Russia. Martyanov, who is described by Clarity Press above, knows more than a little about military superiority of the war-making abilities of the two countries. He sees Russia's military as far superior to the US's, and he thinks that many of the US leaders are not sufficiently aware of this.

Martyanov's argument goes like this. The US's military-industrial complex, which sells weapons to all NATO nations and its allies, is thoroughly corrupt by many years of focusing on the bottom line (profit) that they no longer produce weapons that are comparable to Russia's. The war-hawks are thoroughly deluded into thinking that the US still enjoys an advantage over Russia's killing technology. The war-hawks seem to be in control of the aggressive war policies that threaten Russia by installing NATO military bases on its border and threats related to Ukraine, and likewise threaten China over Taiwan's independence. Thus, Escobar wants the US population to follow Martyanov's advice to prevent an unimaginable nuclear war catastrophe, which according to President Putin of Russia, nobody would survive.
Nearly three dozen scientists are about to embark on a never-before done expedition to the Thwaites Glacier along the Antarctic peninsula. Referred to as the ‘doomsday glacier’ because of its sheer size—Thwaites is melting and cracking at record place. This $50 million joint study by teams from the US and UK are seeking to learn more about this ice behemoth- which they say, is responsible for a 4 percent sea-level rise already. Conservation biologist and author of Generation Z Emergency Reese Halter joins In Question to discuss.

Is there anything you can or should do if you are facing a vaccine mandate as a condition of attending school or keeping a job? Yes. Absolutely, there is.
  • The CIA’s War on Democracy: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Edward J. Curtin, Jr. Converse by Edward Curtin features a video of this interview (34:44) from his weblog Behind the Curtain. My reaction: Both Kennedy and Curtin are supporters of the capitalist system, a system which pretends to offer a democracy for the public instead of the control and dominance of capitalist class rule. But I think both (along with Glenn Greenwald--and JFK) are honest regarding their political views.
That the January 6 riot was some sort of serious attempted insurrection or "coup” was laughable from the start, and has become even more preposterous with the passage of time and the emergence of more facts. The United States is the most armed, militarized and powerful regime in the history of humanity. The idea that a thousand or so Trump supporters, largely composed of Gen X and Boomers, who had been locked in their homes during a pandemic — three of whom were so physically infirm that they dropped dead from the stress — posed anything approaching a serious threat to “overthrow” the federal government of the United States of America is such a self-evidently ludicrous assertion that any healthy political culture would instantly expel someone suggesting it with a straight face.
  • A year later, what are the lessons from the Trump-backed insurrection of January 6? from Peoples Dispatch. (Note: In this post Monica Cruz interviews Brian Becker, a prominent left-wing activist, who attempts to assess what happened on Jan. 6 of last year.) My reaction: Although he doesn't offer new evidence, he reviews the known events surrounding the alleged "attack on the Capitol" on January 6, 2021 that were characterized by feeble attempts of the FBI and the Capitol guards to prepare for this demonstration, and he concludes that this was a public relations stunt engineered by the Democratic Party to prepare for the next elections.)
So I think that the Democratic Party is grandstanding by looking like they’re big and strong against Trump when, in fact, what they’re doing is the opposite. He is not facing criminal charges. As for the other charges, the contempt charges in Congress will be in fact the political rallying cry for Steve Bannon and the other parts of the Trump entourage. So again, it’s performance theater by the Democratic Party. Meanwhile, it is using these events so that people can send millions and millions to the Democrats as they prepare for the next round of elections. And you also have Trump using the allegation of election fraud to raise lots of money – hundreds of millions of dollars.

So it doesn’t appear to be serious because it’s not serious.
Becker then goes on to argue that fascists events characterized what was going on in all Western nations in the 1930s when their populations were suffering from the Great Depression which corresponds to my analysis based on readings of reliable historians and examination of writings during that time.
The promotion of the scandalous nature of the event by the Democratic Party represents punishment for that part of the populace who voted for Trump, another capitalist politician, in 2016 in opposition to the ruling class's chosen candidate Hillary Clinton. The ruling capitalist class has chosen the Democratic Party as a vehicle for the execution of their agenda to confuse workers and civil libertarians in their belief that the Party represents them instead of the ruling capitalist class.
  • The Truth About China in Africa features Danny Haiphong and his views about China in an interview conducted by Naomi Karavani using Redacted Tonight's channel on YouTube.
Naomi Karavani interviews journalist Danny Haiphong for a look at modern China, the propaganda being deployed against it by the US empire, and the reality contrasting that propaganda. Haiphong’s journalism is published on his “Chronicles of Haiphong” Substack. There are many lies being spread about China across the West and they’re shading the world’s understanding of what’s happening in the world’s most populous country. Haiphong explains how the Belt and Road Initiative really works, the new Cold War being developed by the NATO powers, and much more.  
  • What Kazakhstan Isn’t by Craig Murray, an independent blogger from Scotland, from his weblog. (Note: I am posting this article in an effort to present another view from an independent blogger of recent events in Kazakhstan.) My reaction: I'm still not convinced that subversive agents of the CIA are not involved. But, we will soon see.
The narrative on the right is that Putin is looking to annex Kazakhstan, or at least the majority ethnic Russian areas in the north. This is utter nonsense.

The narrative on the left is that the CIA is attempting to instigate another colour revolution and put a puppet regime into Nur-Sultan (as the capital is called this week). This also is utter nonsense.

  • Which Was Washed More? by Allen Forrest from Dissident Voice. (Note: He offers a cartoon to express what he thinks.)
The overriding factor is the financial incentives of offering money, as is true for hospitals in the USA, as a reward for attributing the cause of death to Covid-19. 
I recall my experience in Wisconsin as a Rehabilitation Counselor. I had transferred from California where I did the same work. But the Wisconsin bureaucratic officers were greatly motivated by the "rehabilitation closures" (meaning that clients benefited from our services to achieve employment) they could report in order to justify their next year's appeal for extra funds. Whereas in California the bureaucratic overseers, under the Reagan governorship, had slashed funds for rehabilitation, the Wisconsin counterparts were motivated by more money related to "rehabilitation closures". 
Thus, the typical closure had "unpaid family worker" (or some such fake closure) that theoretically described a person who as a result of our services had resulted in another family member obtaining employment. Anyone who walked through our doors in Wisconsin ended up as a "rehabilitation closure"--and the pressures on us counselors were enormous to obtain such closures. (I finally left this career for which I had long prepared.)
This policy was justified with an explanation that they were used to acquire more funds to do our work. I became aware that 1/2 of my time was devoted to fake "closures" as real work to help a person with some kind of disability. The raising of funds was the primary reward for our work in Wisconsin, which resulted in Wisconsin having high rates of "closures". And, the same is true for diagnosing someone with covid. The inadequate PCR test also contributes to the excessive rates of covid in USA.
The ruling class has taken advantage of the complicated nature of attributing any one cause for death in order to have high rates of Covid-19. They knew that the US population has, in general, poor health by consuming "fast foods", inadequate exercise, poor public health arrangements, and American lifestyles. Medical practitioners and specialists who criticize these policies and methods are threatened with loss of licenses to practice, terminated, or threatened with shortened career opportunities. Those who comply are rewarded with career advancement, and most do.
Since then, I've discovered that most state services of rehabilitation have been privatized and taken control of by insurance companies.
British scholar Susan Williams has spent years documenting these and other instances of the United States’ secret operations during the early years of African independence. The resulting book, White Malice: The CIA and the Covert Recolonization of Africa, may be the most thorough investigation to date of CIA involvement in Africa in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Over more than 500 pages, Williams counters the lies, deceptions, and pleas of innocence perpetuated by the CIA and other US agencies to reveal a government that never let its failure to grasp the motivations of Africa’s leaders stop it from intervening, often violently, to undermine or overthrow them.
  • Steppe on Fire: Kazakhstan’s Color Revolution by Pepe Escobar from Strategic Culture Foundation. My reaction: I regard Escobar as the world's top journalist. After he describes what he knows about Kazakhstan from his visit there in 2019 and from his contacts there, he continues:
Now compare it to what I learned from two different, high-ranking intel sources.

The first source was explicit: the whole Kazakh adventure is being sponsored by MI6 to create a new Maidan right before the Russia/US-NATO talks in Geneva and Brussels next week, to prevent any kind of agreement. Significantly, the “rebels” maintained their national coordination even after the internet was disconnected.

The second source is more nuanced: the usual suspects are trying to force Russia to back down against the collective West by creating a major distraction in their Eastern front, as part of a rolling strategy of chaos all along Russia’s borders. That may be a clever diversionary tactic, but Russian military intel is watching. Closely. And for the sake of the usual suspects, this better may not be interpreted – ominously – was a war provocation.

  • More Harmful Than Helpful (part 1) by Chris Martenson (in a video--32:13) from his weblog PeakProsperity. (Note: Part 2 is behind a paywall.)
Like any good analyst, Forte, a Canadian professor of Anthropology, examines the evidence all over the world and arrives at some conclusions (which are contained at the end of the article). 
But he leaves out a conclusion of mine that the frantic concern for the pandemic of the capitalist ruling class of the US/British/Zionist Empire is because they have recognized to their genuine horror that the enormous growth of population, which their rule has unconsciously created, has caused an enormous threat to the destabilization of the climate.
This major concern, stemming from the earliest acknowledge of the threat being the 1972 Club of Rome paper, The Limits to Growth, is an indication for their hyper-aggressive actions, as we have seen and experienced related to the pandemic. If they have enriched themselves in the process out of habit, all the more the better. Their aggressive efforts have resembled the methods of fascist regimes of old, and are a major cause of concern for general populations, civil libertarians, and, not the least, medical scientists and practitioners.
Their system of capitalism is dependent on the growth of populations. In the past our authorities were always exclaiming positively over the growing population. The Catholic church, whose religious institution has always aligned with the "powers that be" (the ruling capitalist class), promoted large families, opposed abortion and drugs that prevented pregnancies. Indeed, population growth was always seen as creating more consumers that capitalists feed upon.
So, what are they to do in the face of this contradiction? Some may choose the impractical and drastic option to escape the Earth and reside on other planets, but others mistakenly see the enormous growth population--not their capitalist system--as a threat causing the destabilization of the climate and threats to their beloved system. This recognition is motivating them the hide behind the pandemic, which they likely caused, to ensure population decline.
Meanwhile, with this dire threat in mind the directors of the capitalist Empire are more aggressively pursuing their longstanding objective of the control/dominance of the world
In any case, their fascistic policies are likely to continue because they feel the desperate need to control the populations of countries the Empire controls. Their compulsively aggressive pursuit of wealth and power through private ownership and control of the economy has created a kind of fascist conditions during this pandemic which, understandably, are of major concern to many people. 
We are, indeed, living in dangerous times!

  • CNN Gives Award to Pfizer CEO featuring Jimmy Dore, using his channel on YouTube (26:18) sarcastically reporting and discussing, with comic Kurt Metzger interjecting humorous comments, various mainstream media sponsored by Pfizer Corporation.

  • Photo-Shopped History: Editing Out Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s Support for Palestine by Clinton Nzala from Mint Press News. My reaction: What most Americans, and those under the rule of the US/British/Zionist Empire, don't realize that all of history has been "photo-shopped", so to speak, by our masters in the capitalist ruling class in all our institutions: education, media, entertainment, etc. This is to ensure that their subject-citizens knowledge of history fits well with their objectives to turn people into consumers and justify their endless wars. The only way to counteract this problem of indoctrination is to read books by the contemporary authors of each historical period and the few dissident authors of our period.

  • Killing the First Amendment by Philip Giraldi from the Altworld's weblog on Substack. My reaction: Giraldi points to the US justice system's use of "lawfare" to target journalists and bloggers who use Strategic Culture Foundation. This will also target me. I can expect future legal repercussions because of my re-posting of SCF articles. BTW, the First Amendment to the Constitution reads:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
This amendment, like all amendments to US Constitution, was added after the Constitution was written by the revered "Founding Fathers" in order to sweeten its passage by the US States.

If not, you might be interested in RT's substantive selection of three news items that this video covers.

Announcement of future changes in my weblog/website

I will continue my efforts at reducing my time maintaining my website by reducing the number of posts that I scan (50 at present) from which I list posts that are especially relevant. This change will likely not happen in today's aggregated post because I've had a long weekend to work on it. But after today, this will put more of a time burden on my readers to search out other articles of their interest. I will also need to ensure that my "recommended" websites/weblogs, located on the right-hand side of my website, are maintained and up-to-date.

  • 💥A New Strategy to save Capitalism from Itself: The Great Reset, has been announced by the increasingly fascist and desperate, neoliberal directors of the US/British/Zionist Empire by Ron Horn for Surviving Capitalism (not). This is a best post because anything I write extensively qualifies as a best post so that my followers can get a "reading" on my positions.
The signs of the climate crisis can no longer be denied by the self-serving directors of the Empire. The signs: wildfires, the destabilization of the climate with extreme weather, the accelerating melting of the glaciers in the arctic and subarctic regions of our planet can no longer be ignored by our masters in the ruling class, and they have acted accordingly to save themselves while pursuing their concentration of wealth and power. However, it is too late. They have dawdled being distracted by their quest for unilateral dominance, control and wealth concentration into their hands with the result that it is now too late to save the planet. 
In recent years we have seen their frantic efforts to save themselves by venturing into outer space to discover new hospitable planets and other opportunities to accumulate more power and wealth. We have also witnessed other frantic efforts reflected in the Great Reset to meet only one of the various crises of capitalism. One wonders if the suspicious covid pandemic isn't one of their desperate solutions to reduce the Earth's population. It is obvious that they have prospered during this pandemic while the lower classes have suffered from the loss of employment and businesses. 
The propaganda organs of media corporations have been trying to sell us on the positive prospects of this Great Reset that thinly disguises their motives by a campaign which promises that we will own nothing, but remain happy mainly because of the technological fantasies that high-tech corporations promise. The reality behind this propaganda campaign is further impoverishment in terms of the standard of living of the sub-classes they rule over which will result in the decline of their populations, and this is precisely their intention.
While this is going on, independent medical scientists are pointing to the disturbing defects with which the ruling capitalist medical institutions are dealing with the pandemic. There are growing signs that their methods are prolonging the pandemic and creating new variants of this disease. 
There are also disturbing signs that their use of authoritarian mandates to cope with this pandemic are creating fascism which is endemic to capitalism and which are the preference by their directors. Who needs democracy and free of speech, when you can rule by mandates?! The directors of this capitalist empire are always looking for new methods of control over their populations, and these mandates are offering new, promising means of this control while causing the reduction of workers and people engaged in small businesses. But they can't resist enriching themselves while the pandemic is going on to urge the rest of the population to get vaccinated. This health campaign is a perfect cover for their project to reduce populations while providing new opportunities for profit-making.
Independent scientists like retired Guy McPherson are pointing out that it is too late to save the planet unless they make a last-ditch effort at installing mirrors world-wide to reflect the sun's rays. This is method is highly unlikely given to the proclivities of capitalists. Such highly qualified scientists are being suppressed with their careers blocked if they are working in corporations and other institutions which capitalists control. It is no wonder that relatively few are critically speaking out against the existing policies of the Deep State.
This suppression of dissent is also true of highly qualified medical specialists who have been long critical of these methods (and new ones) in the past year like Geert Vanden Bossche and Dr. Robert Malone, and lessor known medical physicians (which suffer threats to their license to practice). They are being censored, suppressed, and ignored. Meanwhile, media corporations are continuing their fear campaigns and urging the American people to take their vaccines despite the high number of injuries and deaths they are causing, hospitals are continuing to be rewarded with increase government payments if they report covid cases. Critics like Robert Kennedy, Jr., who has exposed Anthony Fauci that the criminal he is, have long joined the battle against these methods and their proponents. But the ruling class who have control of all institutions have so far been successful in suppressing these dissenting voices.
Our overlords in the ruling class are also engaged hyperactively in aggressive actions against their old foes China, Russia, and Iran. These actions look like a last desperate attempt to save their system of capitalism and to salvage what they can of the US/British/Zionist Empire. But their aggressive actions threaten a horrendous conflagration of a nuclear war.
I look forward with much trepidation to the new year's calamities that are sure to follow. I hope I am wrong. If we make it through the new year without things getting dramatically worse, it will be a miracle.
  • Andrei Martyanov: It's Game Over for the West from Geopolitics & Empire. (Note: Because of Martyanov's thick accent and his rapid speech, I had a very difficult time, in my old ears, understanding his comments. I will instead order his book Disintegration: Indicators of the Coming American Collapse to understand his views.)
  • Are There Limits to Growth? by James Corbett from his weblog. (Note: I recommend that you limit this post is only 23:30 of the entire post of 1:41:39. This post is only a bad example of "critical thinking" of someone who poses as an anarchist that has numerous followers.) My brief commentary follows: 
Corbett in this post lampoons (at one point he laughs out loud) the early forecasts during the early 1970s in which the transnational capitalist class was sufficiently concerned about the future to hire MIT to project into the future how the Earth would tolerate the ever-burdening population growth that the capitalist system promoted. Apparently Corbett, in contrast to climate scientists, is unconcerned about the continuing rise in global average temperatures, wildfires, extreme weather, the melting of the glaciers and the ice covering the Arctic Ocean. 
If my memory serves me correctly, Corbett is an anti-authoritarian, extreme individual-oriented anarchist which places him on the right-wing of anarchism. He is comfortable with the early stages of capitalism before it became the grownup monster that is controlling our lives. 
And, I think (although I cannot yet prove it) that this is a pandemic engineered by the ruling class to solve this over-population that their profit-making, pharmaceutical corporations are called on to solve. The ruling class consists of mostly financiers and large investors, and it is perfectly understandable to maintain their power and control that they will reward their corporations with abundant profits to carry out this project of population reduction via a pandemic and their mostly useless, and sometimes dangerous, vaccinations. It is also understandable that they will use governments, controlled by them, to issue mandates to further enhance these efforts.

Announcement of change of style for my posts

Important notice: As I decline in my powers due to aging, I must finally curtail the time I spend daily on my posts. I must find the time to rest more. I am not certain how I will shorten the time I spend on the posts, but I will decide between now and tomorrow noon.
