You consistently complain that media don't acknowledge the farce of modern politics.

This Guardian article today is saying exactly what you've been saying.

And what % of the American electorate reads the Guardian?
What % of us listens to Chris Hedges?

True, it's available with a deep dig.
The Intercept, for instance, has recently turned to shit.

Real journalism is hard to find.
Real journalist's are being killed , or being jailed.
Yet, the job of real journalism is speaking truth to power.

How are those rare few being treated?

Chris Hedges has been on a roll, recently.

I'm worried that he'll get popped.

He addresses our military industrial complex.
And the vile hold it has on us.
Democrats or Republicans.

Biden recently gave the pentagon an extra 25 billlion bucks.
Why?

Hardly matters, right?
The minimum wage increase? Medicare for all?
Student debt forgiveness?

Oopsy.
Can't do any of that, obviously.

Obama was arguably a seriously right wing president.
He and Clinton did the most to dismantle our protections than any other fascists we've ever had in power.

Biden is a brain dead pawn in the game.
Nothing can change in this system. Within the system.
Red, blue...it's pure distraction.

More than listen to RT.

Your complaint was that mainstream media don't do these stories. They do, but the number of people who care is vanishingly small.

It can't be changed from within - check.
It can't be changed from outside - check.

Be a realist - tell me how change can be achieved. People either don't understand or don't care. How the hell are you going to get traction to get a majority of people to demand change? Fuck me, we can't even get action on climate - where's the impetus for change of the way of life going to come from?
It won't be addressed until people are dropping like flies, and at that point, it's far too late to act.

That's how I see it.

I have two pieces of evidence that say it all for me.

Occupy Wall Street.

Should have been a great idea - get the 99% onside against the 1%. And what happened? It became a magnet for Illuminati conspiracists. End of story.

Extinction Rebellion.

Now, this one, I liked. Don't take prisoners, disrupt the circus in a way that can't be ignored, hammer your points home by confronting the masses. Count me in!

In 2019, protests were held across NZ, with civil disobedience encouraged. They held workshops on how to deal with being arrested, how to offer passive resistance to pigs, and most importantly, how to document, record and publish the details.

I thought the perfect way to ram the point down NZ's throat would be to cripple cars in Auckland. Create a gridlock that can't be fixed. The city would be broken for at least 24 hours, with traffic stopped all down the motorways and throughout the city.

I showed the fuckheads how to do that, but it required six people and there's only one of me, so I correctly figured they'd be into it like robbers' dogs. They were all over the idea until they asked me if I was a vegan.

That's the level of insanity we're dealing with.
Holy shit. Really? That is just too much. Smile
