NEOLIBERALISM CRISIS 2017/ MONBIOT & KLEIN: When DEMOCRACY is Reduced to FAILURE ... Political/ Economic Radicalization & EXTREME Ideology ... The "Zombie Doctrine" Edition ... (CORPORATCOMMUNAZICA PT.14)- (NAOMI KLEIN PT.2)- (HOW TO PRIVATIZE AMERICA PT.13)

George Monbiot                          Naomi Klein




This posting will serve "Corporatcommunazica", "Naomi Klein" and the "How To Privatize America" series of this journal/ blog. The title of the posting was mostly inspired by George Monbiot, and the posting content by him and Naomi Klein. Although I talk about neoliberalism (wikipedia) much throughout this journal, I didnt have a posting strictly for it, and so many folks that I've talked to one on one over the last several years, are confused at times as to what the word neoliberalism actually means? ... and it's been defined, interpreted and repackaged differently over the last century. And in all fairness to markets, there can be positives from this design as far as market, I see/ seen even capitalism as a mechanism to reduce poverty for instance, but it shouldnt extremely multiply poverty, and it's way out of balance with only a handful of too big to fail entities controlling it ALL, which can make it a market disease with no freedom, eh? This disease is being spread globally, not just the Americas or European countries, by the same invisible powers of wealth that design and peddle this trash. Some were led to believe it's the "new thing", globalization to create free market, spread democracy, free us from bureaucratic central planning (Zero Hedge/ arguement), the answer to solve world economic, social and political problems, create wealth to trickle down ... I even listened to economic professors on the tele, promoting and marketing this garbage and sugar coating it ... to politicians painting it as the way to go (both, left and right). I myself never studied economics or have a background in this, or have much formal education, so I'm still learning, but I look around and just put 2+2 together, eh? ... I grew up a street kid of working class around hustlers. But, I can usually most of the time, see when I/ we are getting screwed on a deal and a hustle, so that's why I focus much on this ... because were getting SCREWED big time. I was searching for some folks to explain this, and thought that George Monbiot and Naomi Klein sum this garbage up well ... so a 2016 piece from George below, and a 2012 video from Naomi. After at the bottom, I will add a few paragraphs of my own.

I dont sugar coat this, or try to make excuses for politicians who try to peddle this trash or radical extreme ideology through fear cards off to us ... I dont care if they're with the party I vote for. All the political leaders they help get in office these dayz, may feel some obligation, and think that this is the future whether we like it or not. I dont have any obligation to any of them, and neither should the majority of people. Our economies, public services, safety nets are not failing, they're being destroyed and replaced by an oligarchy ... a transfer of ownership, from the public to them, and the public/ private partnership sales pitch is more bullshit, they dont want the public to own a bloody damn thing. And these people are more of an enemy to progress than worrying about some foreign country invading us ... we are being robbed blind. I started pointing this out to folks and in this journal, because of seeing how our money is being milked from our governments and public institutions, a steady decline and deterioration of what we built, America footing the costs of most in money and lives for their gain only, and looking at our past record of intervention, regime change, and occupations of various countries in the name of freedom or spreading democracy. For those who praise this and look at it as free market, true democracy or sugar coat it ... fine ... love it, embrace it, suck up to it, and marry it for all I care ... dont think the majority will. I like to call this trash corporatcomminazica ... a word I made, to combine corporatization, communism, nazism and America ... that's all I view it as. I credit much of this to American and European corporations and finance, as far as creating this ideology, maybe the first intentions were positive, but it hasnt ended up as nothing but a negative for "most", and will get worse before better with no regulatory control ... like an out of control gambling addict losing all their money, or a dope fiend overdosing. I'm also opposed to this move, trying to make USA the ultimate empire, controlled by oligarchs that simply do this to rape the globe for their gain only. I actually support capitalism, but also feel that a little socialism mixed in is good for social and economic reasons, plus, you dont have to waste millions hiring politicians to lie for you, and millions on propaganda through media. Frankly, although we need a leadership structure, we sure dont need a bunch of thieves to lead and plan our future ... we can do fine without it, or need them to rathole all our money and resources, replace the people's voice/ government, constitution, or tell us how to live ... we can manage without you.

The most hypocritical part of this trash, is those that promote this, say it's about free market, and the idea of this laissez- faire economics of letting the markets take their course, the opposition to socialism, opposition to government, taxation, etc, etc ... they dont want any revenue like taxes going to any government unless it exits a backdoor to them. There is hardly a thing "free" about the market anymore, a guy I know Steve, a libertarian that does well for himself, who also opposes this crap, recently told me, that the only free market is the black market these dayz, Steve has a point. Letting the markets take their course? ... I agree, we should, which includes not bailing these bastards out when they fail, not letting them get so large, to where they take everyone else down when they fail, and making them pay for their mistakes when they damage our environment, societies and economies, holding them accountable, and even imprisoning them when needed ... not increasing their tax write offs and subsidies, you failed, which means you lack what it takes ... so you're worthless to manage our money, choices, destiny, or whatever else. Everyone I talked to over several years, from professionals, small business folks and entrepreneurs, locals politically involved of the left and right, to working classes and labourers, have a problem with this new system. Even my son- in- law, who is a corporate man, representing an American corporation promoting and setting up new business in Latin- American countries, has told me of the problems with this in countries like Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Ecuador and Colombia. Instead of eliminating extreme poverty, you are expanding it. These too big to fail power houses, dont even allow markets to take their course ... and we have to bail them all out, let them write all the legislation from rights, to our properties powers, laws, and what we buy and trade from who ... they want to control and regulate all of that, with no regulations for themselves. Their opposition to socialism, another snowjob, they want socialism 110% for their corporations and financial institutions, in fact, they are the biggest, laziest, gluttons of corporate welfare and social safety nets ... my question is simply ... why in Hell should we pay your way?, you're already swimming in wealth you didnt even earn, pay your own shit, and not with our tax revenues. What do you contribute to society, that we cant do ourselves? ... not a damn thing ... because we are the ones that make this all work, all they do is pocket our profit and gains. They dont support any kind of government or democracy unless it's powerless and owned by them ... nor do they care about your opinions, even in their mega corporate consumer surveys ... why in Hell should we care about them and their opinions? ... they are the epitome of communism, oppression and anti- capitalism or free market.

For people supporting this ideology that want progress for humanity, the environment, decent opportunity and standards of living, real freedom and free/ fair trade, rights/ voice, or any future of worth to our children ... it's stupid to support. The top 1/10th of 1% wants the other 9/10ths of 1% to control over in the future only, when they replace workers with robotics, and have no need any more for consumers or producers ... after they ratholed all our wealth, resources and innovations, and put the final touch on their future empires they built with it. Then, they will even destroy any free market, competition, or even corporate/ financial mega giants of past amongst themselves, that they dont need. And destroy us, whether it's through denying healthcare through privatization, or starving people to death, to creating environmental hazards, intentionally or unintentionally that kill people and ecosystems, after they dont need you anymore, they want you to die, to make the world only populated by them and who they need, which is also a drastic population reduction combined. You may think that some of these folks (not all) would not kill millions either way ... but ask yourself, why not? ... what would be their reason? ... do you think they are humanitarians?, or have any regard for anyone outside their circles? ... what does history tell you when it comes to certain powers killing millions of people? There is no reason why you should not look at these powers of unearned wealth as your enemy, and equally hope for them to die or self destruct, in whatever way necessary to eliminate them ... dont have any humanitarian feelings for those who would even indirectly have you killed, plus, it's not natural or rational thinking. All this is more reason also, not to dissolve regulation, bureaucracy, taxation, and representation ... but to reform and strengthen it ... when you lose all that, you lose your voices, natural rights, freedom of will, competitive business and safeguards, and anything worth living for. We need to look to alternative ideas such as universal basic income even, or other ideas, deal with population or nourishment problems in other wayz, to reconstructing economics to fit for our 21st century needs without their interference ... and if they dont want to play ball or negotiate ... attack and abandon their systems, their ideas, and let their institutions and empires dissolve and die ... the same way they would let you and yours dissolve and die. For those who say that nothing can be done ... I'm confident and optimistic, that the resistance from the majority can be strong and powerful ... once you discovered and tasted any level of liberty, you are not likely to accept losing it without a fight.

DRAFT BERNIE FOR A PEOPLE'S PARTY/ NICK BRANA: Creating CHANGE on a Different RANGE ... The "Independent Alternative" Edition ... (From The FOXHOLE with Bernie PT.35)- (PUBLIC PATRIOTS PT.49)- (THE AWAKENING PT.48)




Bernie and Jane: "The action will be in a third party" ... Thanx to Unofficial Draft Bernie Sanders To People's Party

****************************************************************************



Nick Brana

**** draftbernie.org (home and petition)



This posting will be for 3 series of this journal/ blog, "From The Foxhole with Bernie", "Public Patriots" & "The Awakening". It will focus on another new movement to start a new party, that represents the people in America. Nick Brana started up this party, he was with Bernie's campaign, as national public outreach coordinator, lobbying superdelegates for Bernie in the last election, and formerly part of Bernie's "Our Revolution" movement, which Nick resigned from. Nick wants Bernie to come in to start a new people's party. But before I have any input/ word on this, I linked an interview with Nick from The Real News Network and Paul Jay below, to explain what is going on and the reason, which Nick summed it up perfectly. I like Nick's vision and enthusiasm, see leadership qualities, and appreciate what him and so many others are doing, not for my sake, but for the next generation, and motivating our kids and grandkids to get involved in the political process and resist with new strength and vision, instead of this tired and dull prerecorded repetitious deadbeat show we have currently. And Thanx to The Real News Network for video as well as transcript ... also TRNN is funded by public/ viewers, independent, receives no government or corporate money, a news network worthy of peoples support, and one that covers what many cannot. And dont let folks, tell you it cant be done ... or you'll never get a thing done. At least, it is worth the time, to hear Nick out, and visit their website linked below his photo above. After, I will add some of my views on this.

Thomas Hudson Pickering/ Ranch Chimp



I myself focus much on these movements throughout these series and journal/ blog, strictly because like many others, been expecting and looking for a surge in peoples movements to splinter and start forming. At first, I was excited about Occupy Wall Street for example, they, like many other progressives, Tea Party folks of the right and such ... are dismissed by the 2 parties as extremists, nutz, radicals, or nuisances that are poor, or stay in their parents basement, because they speak out of order, and are a voice for millions, that the 2 parties rather ignore. In 2017, even the anger against the establishment within the republican party, is what helped Trump, many of which may be surprised, that Trump may not be what they were expecting though. Now as far as independents and progressives, you are seeing several new movements, even people that were right leaning, which I even talked to some here in Texas, that liked Bernie on many issues, and listening more to progressive ideas. Progressive folks came far since the Occupy Wall Street start in 2011, which was a sort of political enlightenment booster in my view, and have become more sophisticated and organized, which I been looking forward to for some time now. You have this movement to draft Bernie for a new people's party, you have Justice Democrats, Brand New Congress, a Liberal Tea Party in the worx, Our Revolution inside the Democratic Party, and others, making much progress across America too. So the people in USA are off to a great start, they are working their asses off, and utilizing ALL the tools available, from rights/ laws to networking/ media ... which is great news. This also inspires others globally that are witnessing the same with this neoliberalism on steroids of today. This is simply to get the majority of people in this nation to be heard and have a sayso in their future, which has been increasingly ignored by our mainstream politics. And even many of those establishment politicians didnt expect this to grow like it did ... and WILL continue to, many thought it would just fizzle out, and they could keep on neglecting the oath they took of their obligation to the people, play them off as nutcases in public, etc ... so it's a rude awakening for many establishment politicians ... the reason many didnt see this coming, is because how out of touch they are with the people of this country, and basically have no contact with anyone out of their circles, except when campaigning, and that's even all staged. Supporting these groups is positive, because you have nothing to lose, that we are not losing already on a daily to yearly basis ... just look where we are at today, from over the last 30 years.

Some folks are upset with Bernie because he keeps at it in the democratic party, they feel like it's a waste of time, and he should have walked after the election ... but understand, he has long roots and friendships for years with many in that party, he worked with those folks for years, so there is some bond, which is understandable. His thing is trying to push the party towards being more progressive ... yet many in the party, dislike progressives more than republicans (from Nick's own experience also), and you can clearly see this in their actions ... and right now, that is the only strong force to challenge Trump and the republicans. I dont see the democrats though doing anything significantly progressive, besides challenging Trump/ GOP, basically politics as usual ... and moves like this, is really seen as negative by your base, especially coming off a loss so soon. I mean, there is nothing that would make me think that they will change, or expect change ... their actions have been clear as day ... if there was, I would have "reason" to believe they will change, and would say so ... maybe they will change, but I see no evidence or action of it yet. If Bernie cuts out and hooks up with the new party, I dont think it would hurt, I mean ... he will still be what he has been for years, as far as being an independent Senator from Vermont, but, if Bernie doesnt, I still support him for all he has done. Nick sayz that according to gallup polls, that 14 million democrats left the party ... I dont buy that though, or have too much faith in these polls, after all, I thought from polls and media, that democrats would win by a significant margin last november. But what I do think, is that if Bernie did join, it would really pull in a significant amount of people to it, in the millions, and be much more significant and diversified than the Green Party ... which is a plus, because it would force some democrats to have to at least be competitive, or lose more. What I do know, just from what I see online, as well as so many folks locally here in Texas that I have asked their opinions ... is that many folks are really sick of what they see, on both sides, and have lost alot of love and hope ... and see no vision out of these 2 parties ... because they frankly have no vision. There are many millions of people out there that need something to embrace as far as politics, call them independents, or whatever label you want, but they're hungry. Folks like Nick, at least have some vision, other than politics as usual ... and even if Bernie doesnt want to jump onboard, there are others who may in Washington ... I mean, why not call in someone like Tulsi Gabbard, when I look at Tulsi, I see a winner too, or several others, work local grassroots, and try to even consolidate and unite, 2 or 3 movements, there are many things and strategies that can be done. Nick was looking at it as being different, than say the Green Party or Libertarians, because you could start with a base in the millions, and Bernie would certainly invigorate so many, trust me.

**** http://www.jessicafarrar.org/




Well ... Texas politicians of the left and right are at it again! There has been so many attacks by republicans here recently on women's rights, as far as what they do with their bodies and lives, so as retaliation, Texas State Representative Jessica Farrar (D) of Houston, decided to present a bill to hold men equally accountable for their sins, as a sort of satire and sarcasm! ... the republicans though were the main instigators in this. This bill is to fine men for masturbating, counseling for the guyz, saving their seed/ semen, etc. And these people are actually doing this, as you can read below, I'm not making this up ... just like the popular bathroom bills. I mean, these people are actually grown adults, educated in colleges/ universities, receive decent salaries and benefits, believe they're role models to set standards for others around the globe, etc, etc. And they actually worry about things like, what women decide for themselves and their bodies, styles of clothes women, men and kids wear, who is using a bathroom, folks masturbating, and folks sex lives. Now you see why these oligarchs/ wealthy, corporations/ banks, take advantage of us ... because of how stupid and sensitive we are on certain issues ... and worry about pointless shit. In the meantime, while we are busting each others chops over some of these things, they're robbing us blind of everything {:-) This could also open up new doors for big business here in the Lone Star State ... between having funeral and burial services for aborted fetuses ... to issuing fines/ citations to good ole boyz wanking on that home on the range, where a little more than just "deer and antelope play", collecting fines/ fees, court ordering counseling and doctor visits/ examinations, in a state with 29 million people, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) I dont know what else to make of this ... but some newsread below.

EMPIRE FILES/ MARTIN & HEDGES: "Trump, Alt- Right, & Christianized Fascism" ... Turbocharged Neoliberalism, Inverted Totalitarianism, & Dominionism Crusades ... The "INCREMENTAL CHANGE" Edition ... (ABBY MARTIN PT.4)- (CHRIS HEDGES PT.2)- (CORPORATCOMMUNAZICA PT.13)




**** http://theempirefiles.tv/



This posting will serve 3 series of this journal/ blog ... "Abby Martin", "Chris Hedges" & "Corporatcommunazica" ... much of the posting title was inspired by what Chris Hedges talks about here. Some folks will look at this, and say that it cant happen, this is America, Democracy, etc ... anything can happen ... some things have more of a chance than others, but anything is possible ... which includes the American majority resistance and opposition to this political and religious cult stuff. So what Chris talks about here, in his interview with Abby, is not to bring paranoia, but to enlighten, educate, and bring awareness of the current condition, more than anything else. I mean, you already have a form of what Sheldon Wolin labeled as "inverted totalitarianism" (wikipedia) that Chris talks about, or what I call "corporatcommunazica", sprinkled with neoliberalism. You also have a growing force in America, of this type of religious patriotism, and with some of a "dominionism" (wikipedia) type mindset ... which to me is like some sort of "sharia law", so they have no business whining about muslims ... ya'll fundamoralist christians are in the same damn boat and sleep together in my view ... I dont like either of ya'll, and frankly dont give a shit if you dont like me either. The United States was NOT created or designed to be like some ancient theocracy, its ideas were to move beyond that, and to be free of that, to not be ruled by religions. This is NOT against peoples beliefs or values, it is to prevent those institutions, from forcing their beliefs or values on someone else. President Trump being in office with a republican majority gives them big balls, and of course, they have all the answers, if you ask them. This is why we should be emboldened in opposition to these forces ... NOT kissing their asses like we do, and asking them to be nice to us, whether it's politics or these religious cults. Even though Trump been President for only roughly a couple months ... I dont think he understands, that his job is to represent ALL people in this country, not just a handful ... and his appointment selections have been lousy ... I mean, even Hillary Clinton, who has neoliberalism and Wall Street written all over her wouldnt have picked a crew like this. I'm not even sure what the democrats plan is these dayz, they been losing their asses politically, and they dont seem to be doing much, except pointing out how bad the republicans are (duuuhh {:-) ... so I dont know if they even have any vision outside of neoliberalism either, just maybe a milder form than republicans.

And as far as Trump's business vision, he of all people should know and understand, it is NOT a one- way street ... we are the producers and consumers, eh? ... we are essential to healthy business, and business without adequate regulations, destroys business. It's nice that Trump (I also call him Tweety, because of his tweeting personality) comes up and sayz he opposes TPP, or some other nice things, but not much credit should go to him yet on anything, he hasnt done a damn thing of any worth to us ... and the TPP was dead when Obama was President ... so his opposition is meaningless anywayz, it never would have gone anywhere ... he's just playing a safe hand, and saying what a bunch of people want to hear, after all, he's a hustler. As far as their healthcare plans, sure ObamaCare/ ACA is a corporate cash grab, as I detail here, basically calling it "CareBear" insurance, because you have to have the education level of a toddler, to view it as universal or any other politipop rubbish ... YES, it's "universal" in the sense, that you have a handful of corporations ripping off each other and the consumers through legislation. But the republicans have been lousy trying to figure out how to replace it, acting more like desperate dope fiends, in a rush to push any damn thing through fast, without a real plan or fix, and full of clever things to to put the bite on the consumer somehow. The other day, I was talking to this guy here in Dallas, and he was upset about what the republicans want to do with healthcare, cutting medicaid, medicare, EPA, etc ... and how it could put our people and consumers in even worse shape ... what's odd, is that he voted for Trump/ straight republican out of habit, and thinking of "change" (against the establishment status- quo) ... I dont know why he didnt expect this, he's a grown man of 50 years old. Ya, you might get change ... but maybe not the change that you expected, eh? The way these folks do this is incrementally, look at just the last few decades and where we are now. And these oligarchs love religion and its warriors, to create a smokescreen, tool and weapon ... the oligarchs themselves arent very religious, any more than Trump is. Enough from me, give Chris below a listen/ video or read/ transcript, Thanx to The Real News Network ... he sums it up alot better than I can, and he is a world traveled presbyterian minister, journalist and professor, so you cant say he doesnt know a thing about these cults, foreign affairs and politics.

THE FLAMING LIPS (Cover Tributes): "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds/ feat. Miley Cyrus", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Space Oddity", "The Who Tribute" & "War Pigs"

Image result for flaming lips logo

**** flaminglips.com



This posting will be to honour and showcase some of the work of "The Flaming Lips" (wikipedia), out of Norman, Oklahoma (OKC area). Although with all their albums (19, 14 studio albums) with so much, I wanted to focus this posting on cover tributes they remade of classics, from The Beatles, Queen, David Bowie, The Who, and Black Sabbath ... because of their trademark style they put on them ... really outstanding work too! TFL are well known, so not much need for intro, they are in a class of their own as far as genre, although well known for their psychedelic culture, so you can label them anything you like. TFL also been nominated 6 times for Grammys, receiving 3, as well as a BRIT Award. They're well known as a unique concert experience these days, with all their theatrical props, lasers, lighting, big screen vidz, etc ... and done experimental shows, just to try out new things, and Wayne Coyne is hands on behind the scenes in all of it, working with the crews setting it all up. Others that were widely known for a unique concert experience, would be "The Residents""Butthole Surfers", and "Pink Floyd". But, TFL sure came a long wayz since Wayne, his brother Mark, and Mike Ivins started this crew in Norman years back, and playing their first gig at OKC's "Blue Note Lounge", and deserve it, from their work. I got to see them in the old "Theatre Gallery" in Deep Ellum/ Dallas (where I seen Bad Brains and many others, and TFL's played there regularly, driving down to Dallas from OKC, which is a 3 hour drive), shortly after they started up in the mid 80's, a very intimate smaller setting ... I read, that Wayne was still working as a fry- cook at Long John Silvers at that time (and getting held up at gunpoint a couple times at work {:-), while doing gigs as well ... and those were some good ole dayz! Even back in the day in smaller type dive joints, they were unique, yet on a minimal budget, but their trademark began to show. Thanx for the great music to these guyz too! Below, the first is working with Miley Cyrus on a 2014 release, and some others. "Oczy Mlody", is their newest album just released, January 2017. I chose studio and live for this mix ... Enjoy!

**** The Resident/ Lori Harfenist (Facebook)



This posting will serve as Part 6 of the "American Exceptionalism" series of this journal/ blog ... and to highlight Lori Harfenist, aka "The Resident". Lori already is in various postings throughout this journal as well, and I been listening to her rants for several years ... she alwayz makes it quick and to the point, and covers so many issues ... Lori alwayz has some great food for thought. I opened above with her self promotion of her 2016 book, and wishing her good sales of it. Lori is out of Brooklyn (NYC), and is married to vocalist/ drummer/ songwriter, Tomato. She been at this on YouTube for over a decade, and a producer, and back years before on NYC's public access tele, with many more of these clips on YouTube and RT America. Lori picks at everything, raising those questions and making points, that are unpopular to bring up, and brings what really should be brought out to the table, especially on those who we look up to and praise these dayz, that keep so much on the low from us themselves, Lori cuts through some of the political correctness. I love her little quick commentaries throughout the week ... and she makes me laugh all the time, and sure to put a smile on my face!
