    Beernie Sanders on Socialism


    If you don’t know the non-Wikipedia, non-right-wing-propaganda-demonization definition of the word “Socialism,” then I suggest you drink a tall glass of shut the heck up, please.

    Too harsh?

    Forgive me, but I have an extremely high level of disdain for ignorance, especially when it’s purposeful.  I find that purposeful ignorance exudes cowardice, and when I look at the right-wing base, all I see is cowardice.

    Anyone who is willing to just take what someone says without even thinking about researching it, let alone actually doing it, all because it elicits a strong emotional response, is an intellectual coward.  In my opinion, this is the right-wing base.  Their “leadership” publicly lies on a level I haven’t seen since the Bush 43 years, and their base just sucks it up as if it’s truth.  Then they directly contract media propaganda machines like Fox “News” to reinforce the lies through repetition for weeks and months, but with added key buzzwords:

    • Socialism
    • “Unfettered” Capitalism
    • Oligarchy
    • Communism

    These particular buzzwords are specifically used to evoke a particular emotional response from their massively-ill-informed base.  Democratic socialism is calculatingly-demonized while unfettered capitalism is pushed by the rich and powerful as the ‘gold standard’ of running a country economically.  So, for the easily manipulated, let’s discuss the actual definition of all of these terms right now(CLICK HERE to Read More…).

    Lessig-Sanders 002


    This past Tuesday was the first Democratic Party Candidate ‘Fight Night’ of the 2016 Presidential campaign season, and did you notice something really obvious?  Presidential Candidate Larry “The Professor” Lessig wasn’t in the ring.

    Wait, you didn’t notice that?

    Oh, it was probably because you didn’t know who he was or that he was even running, you know, since his name was taken off of the fight undercard; the list of candidates for pollsters to give to the people they were polling around the country.

    That was definitely not by accident.

    Since the controversial and political-campaign-changing Citizens United ruling, money has increasingly become the primary determining factor politically of which direction to go and what corporate decisions will and won’t be made.  Although he fit every criteria that was required of him to be included, Lessig was excluded from the Democratic Presidential Debate by the very entity that made the rules.

    That decision to keep the Harvard Professor from the debate seems to have been a…(CLICK HERE to Read More…).
