The Truth About the Green Party

Posted in Ethics & Morals, Politics, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2019 by Drogo

Regarding the main-stream corporate propaganda lies –

Despite corporate conspiracy theories, the Green Party does not like Putin or other terrible leaders like Trump. Hillary and every corporate politician was up the ass of corporations and Putin lackeys more than Stein was, which actually makes sense because Putin is Capitalist and his associates did business with Trump and Clintons. The example that comes to mind is the uranium deal, but im sure with international business there are plenty other examples. Jill Stein never even met with Putin, but did attend a well covered diner that other leaders were invited to for diplomacy. Corporate politicians would be way more influenced by Putin’s corruption than Jill Stein for Gaia’s sake.

It is by default that RT and Aljazeera (sp?) other foreign media outlets allow non-corporate American opinions more than main-stream US corporate media does. I have been studying this for years. Our own government tends to label environmentalists as extreme terrorists, and corporations have no interest in supporting us, because the Capitalist economy is not green enough yet. If Green Party people were biased for people or groups it would be environmentalists and naturalists.

As a member of the green party who has been studying active environmental leaders in our movement, I have never found ANY true evidence that we are unpatriotic or take support from foreign leaders. From what i can tell, our budget and foreign influence are both very small. Our influence on the 2016 election was smaller than those liberals who voted for Trump or wrote in Bernie, or stayed home because the system is so rigged in favor of the two party system. Some of us even voted for the hope and change of Obama. We wanted the first female president to be Jill Stein, not a corporate tool.

Regarding the Russia-gate hysteria conspiracy theories pushed by Clinton (see Wikileaks emails which were real where she said “Let’s push the Russia story”), and the corporate DNC and media (Maddow), that is covered in essays about that distraction from the real reasons that Hillary Clinton could not beat Trump, and how the DNC rigged the primary. That whole distraction, which wasted hours of my research time, was ended by the FBI report on Trump and Russian “meddling”; which concluded that the only evidence of foreign influence on our elections was feeble propaganda that does not compare to our own efforts to over-throw other governments.

Concerning real democracy and the right to vote for more than 2 choices, that is covered in essays about civil rights and popular vote elections. Do parties have a few bad apples? Sure, but I am sure that most environmentalists and Green Party members do not agree with the Unabomber or other terrorists, or wanna-be dictators like Trump or Putin anywhere. Would I take Green-Peace money to run for office? Sure. Peace-out.

Commentary on the ‘Fourth Turning’

Critical Commentary about the book ‘The Fourth Turning’ by William Strauss and Neil Howe.

“In spite of their claims being little more than unscientific cyclical theory, they are currently taken seriously by a lot of conservatives and liberals alike, because their theory offers conservatives the hope that society is on the verge of cycling out of the social changes of the 1960s and 1980s and back to the social conservatism of the 1940s-50s, and liberals the hope that society is on the verge of cycling out of the Reagan-Bush era of deregulation and privatization and back to the New Deal and Keynesian economics of the 1940s-50s. But first, of course, society has to go through the Big Crisis that comes along every 80 years and is coming again, soon according to the authors.” – Rational Wiki article

The Corporate Centrist ‘Third Way’ may be the basis for the title of the ‘Fourth Turning’, as it appeals to both neo-conservatives and neo-liberals. ‘Neo’ just means ‘new’, so instead of such a vague title, after the modern period gets named something we should call neo-politians of this era simply ‘corporate politicians’, or something which can be shortened better (corpols). Third Party Libertarians, Greens, and Independents do not agree with the Third Way which is corporate centrism for the sake of lobbyist donors, rather than the majority of the voting population, and therefore does not progressively address our environment, health care, civil rights, or job market well enough.

So yes most of us can agree that history is cyclical, however i do not think that the results are the ‘same’ enough to predict how exactly things will change by simply using logic. Now if they are using a higher power like God or angels as their influence, then sure anything is possible lol. As authorities on generational history i commend the 4th Turning authors, as history indeed repeats itself in various ways, few of which are predictable regarding how vast and major the changes will be, and when they are predictable, they are only predictable in vague ways by a few of us freaks.

Generational cycles have much to do with simply not wanting to obey our parents, besides progressive culture and tech factors. We have WARS all the time because we allow demagogues and soulless corporations to control our governments. It is fun to think that we could actually fit like porcelain-dolls into a cabinet of categories in perpetuity, very Aristotelian; but as most philosophers know such artificial constructs are easily picked apart by later skeptics who examine reality in respect to other important relative aspects.

An example to enact sustainable changes would be a grass-roots populist national government like SCOD with leaders like Bernie Sanders, AOC, and Jill Stein; with a council of presidents from each time zone. We would fund the national guard more than a standing army, with an emphasis on individual citizens rather than obedient slaves to the system, increase credit unions and decrease bank power, increase funding of public lands and decrease corporate well-fair, and fund education to encourage students to study what they want as long as they want. Next time you hear the word “Entitlements” used to degrade government support of poor people = Please remind people that certainly those that use that word for poor people on government support, should eventually realize that rich people have many more entitlements that are not earned as they are far too grand a scale relative to other humans.

2010 Midterm Elections

Posted in Critical Commentary of Civilization, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 8, 2010 by Drogo

I guess according to the press voters think we need another Iran-Contra deal, like the shit they pulled after President Carter, to make it seem like caution was bad, creating mega-bubbles in the economy. I remember the 80s, and it was a wonderful fairyland based on greed.

Radio and TV News is making it seem as though the Republicans and Republican influenced Tea Party are going to gain control over the House and the Senate, under President Obama. It seems very sad that they did not want such a ‘liberal’ president, and they thought Bush was better. Even though the Great Recession started during Bush’s second term. It was during that time I was forced by circumstances to join the US Military, because of political pressures that stopped me from working other available jobs. There were very few green jobs around where I lived, and I was not in a position to move, without being homeless.

O well, it’s like voters are once again saying, “Fuck the future!”

Imagine if everyone voted for their favorite candidate or leader, and not just for the 2 main options presented by the 2 parties of stalemate. I know, it’s too radical. ^%(^%(&%(&^%(&^
