A great short book that sort of touches on some of what this dynamite essay addresses is by the great Bertrand Russell, "Conquest of Happiness". Highly recommended.

"if job creation is your metric of choice, Pentagon contractors are a bad taxpayer investment."

Absolutely. This has been true for decades. It's of course getting worse. What grinds my gears is when these big behemoths actually send some of their jobs abroad! These are quasi-gov't corporations given the trillions of dollars they receive from U.S. taxpayers and they have the chutzpah to send jobs overseas!

Vast tranches of this whole business need to be converted to a peace time economy. It's not like we don't desperately need it: infrastructure, schools, medical clinics, rapid mass transit all over the country, just off the top of my head.

Aside from engaging in some "both sides ism" Sanders deserves some kudos for this courageous statement on national television. It's extremely rare to hear anything like it on pro-Israel mass media, and of course the entire spectrum of U.S. establishment news media are almost totally pro-Israel and Zionist to the core.

The Moscow protests -- along with the Hong Kong riots -- are such an obvious attempt by the Western capitalist-militarists at a color "velvet" rebellion.

Notice how they're occurring at at time when Russia and China have put a check on some (some) of Washington's imperial behavior. It's also occurring b/c Beijing, over the last year, has been signing agreements with Iran to develop and export millions of barrels of oil.

I already have lefty acquaintances getting fully on board the motives and actions of the Soros-NGO inspired "activists" in Hong Kong and Moscow. Critical thinking is in short supply these days.

Acosta was told to lay off b/c Epstein's connected to intelligence [likely Mossad].

One of Epstein's accusers stated under oath that Epstein specifically said he wanted video footage of powerful men and their peccadilloes in order to have a lever on them in order to have control of them down the line.

To make the Captain Obvious point: this is classic organized crime intel machinations.

What's also fascinating is George Mitchell is alleged to be one of the men who indulged in activities with Epstein's underage victims. What's fascinating is Mitchell was Obama's point man in attempting to resolve the Middle East conflict. Again, Captain Obvious: did the Mossad have its hooks in Mitchell while he was engaged in a high profile effort to resolve the Israeli Palestinian dispute?

By the way, don't expect our corporate-militarist-Zio media to focus focus focus on what I just addressed above. They will concentrate on everything but the aforementioned.

Yup. Most likely.

It very well could. Great observation!

Great way of putting it. Indeed, progressive-populist proposals are overwhelmingly supported by vast majorities; it's a dirty little secret the establishment likes to keep from us.

Working in conjunction with his Zio masters, I now half expect Trump to pick some sort of fight again with The Squad in order to bury the Epstein suicide story on page 15.

This fight between the corporate Biden-Pelosi-Schumer wing of the Democratic Party versus the progressive Ocasio-Cortez Sanders wing of the Dem Party is, according to Zizek, and I agree with him, arguably the most important political battle in the world today.
