after the “great Trump induced divide” the USA need to reform it’s system, but does it need a revolution?

the problem with revolutions often is:

  1. what is for sure: people are angry for a reason (vote does not feel counted, reps in Washington “too far away” = lost connection to the problems of Jill & Joe, many small business had to close down & loads of lives and jobs lost)
    1. the anger at the current system is for real and it “the negative” to stay
  2. what about the positive? what shall be after the revolution? (the far harder question)
    1. define what shall be, before removal of status quo, the “anything is better than that” approach is Hitler-kind-of-dangerous (power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely) there is good reason to divide sate powers into:
      1. legislative (laws) (the gov)
      2. judiciary (judges)
      3. executive (police & military, no, not the president and “executive orders” (this is somewhat defined different in the US and EU))

this gov-by-finance system is broken & unsustainable, anyone agrees on that, how to fix it?

some suggestions: (imho small but very important changes that can have great effect)

  • how to fight corruption: with great power comes great responsibility
    • thus: MAXIMUM transparency for the powerful
      • people have to know what politicians are doing
      • every single dollar they or their family earns need to be transparent to the public
    • privacy for the weak:
      • let’s say that 99% of the population are neither criminals nor terrorists
  • how to fight Corona-crisis induced unemployment:
    • state paid jobs!
    • it was done in the US before and it ain’t socialism! it just tries to fix a broken (private ownership zero responsibility) system and help people step back from violence and revolution. all central bankers should agree on that.
    • after the great depression of 1929 massive amounts of people become unemployed (it was not their fault, rather the system’s fault)
      • the state paid group A to dig holes in the morning
      • the state paid group B to fill the holes again in the evening
      • just this time: maybe the US gov can think of more useful jobs
      • Hoover established the Reconstruction Finance Corporation (RFC) to make emergency loans to businesses in danger of default. At first the RFC lent money only to banks, railroads, and certain agricultural organizations, but the scope of its operations was later expanded, and it proved to be an effective tool for stabilizing business and industry” (source January 22, 1932) (unfortunately the RFC was canceled in 1957, because it was deemed not needed anymore, well guess what, would have been better to keep it in place, more crisis were to come, state-owned European banks for reconstruction created after WW2  LUCKILY STILL EXISTS and they are needed very much to counter all the instabilities of private & reckless banking system, a new RFC would also be essential for financing a desperately needed US “Green New Deal”)

“trauma used to accelerate the advancement of that corporate wishlist” (have to find the source, it was one of the latest DemocracyNow interviews with Naomi)

about the book:

“Around the world in Britain, the United States, Asia and the Middle East, there are people with power who are cashing in on chaos;

exploiting bloodshed and catastrophe to brutally remake our world in their image.

They are the shock doctors.

Exposing these global profiteers, Naomi Klein discovered information and connections that shocked even her about how comprehensively the shock doctors’ beliefs now dominate our world – and how this domination has been achieved.

  • plundering Russia
  • exploiting Iraq

which means: ZERO investment into infrastructure (letting the infrastructure rott away while trying to extract maximum amount of profit)

DoD and corruption: afraid of budget cuts X-D

“The Board members, to include the Board’s Chairperson, are appointed annually by the United States Secretary of Defense and do not receive any payments for their services.[3]

The Chairs of the Defense Policy Board and the Defense Science Board serve as non-voting ex officio members of the Board.

The Director of the Office of Management and Budget and the Comptroller General of the General Accounting Office serve as non-voting observers of the Board.

In October 2014, Deputy Secretary Robert O. Work instructed the Board to hire consultants from McKinsey & Company to identify wasteful spending.[4]

McKinsey discovered DoD was spending $134 billion, 23% of its total budget, on back-office work, and that the back-office bureaucracy staff of over one million people was nearly as great as the number of active duty troops.[4]

On January 22, 2015, the Board then voted to adopt a McKinsey plan to cut $125 billion in waste over five years.[4]

After Secretary Chuck Hagel was replaced by Ash Carter the next month, however, Deputy Secretary Work expressed he was concerned that the gain from any savings achieved would then be removed from the defense budget by Congress.[4]

Under Secretary Frank Kendall III argued that he could not achieve any efficiencies and, instead, that he needed to hire 1,000 more staff.[4]

Secretary Carter then replaced the Board chairman, classified the McKinsey results as secret, and removed the report from public websites.[4]

In 2016 the DBB provided the model for the Defense Innovation Advisory Board which was established by Defense Secretary Carter during the 2016 during RSA cyber security conference in San Francisco.” (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_Business_Board)

Goldman Sachs: U.S. ECONOMY TO SHRINK 24% FROM APRIL to JUNE 2020

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/u-economy-shrink-24-april-155126416.html

The Declaration of Independence – for it’s age of over 250 years – was and still is (!) GREAT AMAZING MASTER PIECE OF CULTURE AND CIVILIZATION.

A beacon of light in the middle ages.

Now it seems the corrupting forces of capitalistic have worked steady on going back in time to the middle ages (PLEASE NOT AGAIN!) (corruption -> collapse -> say hello to the middle ages, rebuild from ash and rubble)

Maybe it is time for a new and better constitution for the US – that has CONCRETE DIRECT TRUTH SCIENCE AND EVIDENCE BASED LAWS for SUSTAINABLE SURVIVAL OF ALL MANKIND.

Since then… nobody is to blame but:

  • the reckless
  • the ignorant
  • the greedy
  • the corrupt
    • everything in the universe depends on a balance
    • when Trump prints $2Trillion new Dollars and hand them out IN SECRECY WITHOUT ANY conditions (to bail out wallstreet (“the cancer”) not mainstreet (the society/worker)) he makes a terrible mistake and just increased INBALANCE and DECREASED STABILITY
      • i expect Trump to step down in the next weeks for mishandling a massive crisis
      • Trump and other’s do not understand – they are not as important and mighty as they think – that without a rise in paychecks – without people working for it – money is worth NOTHING – it becomes paper without a function and purpose.
      • also:
        • Central Banks and
        • law makers
        • NEED TO REALIZE THAT ALTERNATIVES (biodiversity of monetary / cooperation systems = is good = more stable economy & society) ARE GOOD AND SHOULD BE ALLOWED

          • this also means: gov (of course should not over tax anybody) BUT NEEDS TO ALLOW/ACCEPT PAYMENT OF TAXES in many other currencies such as BitCoins
        • ALLOW ALTERNATIVES TO FIAT CURRENCIES OR RISK SOCIETY COLLAPSE
  • have killed the American Dream. (some are still fighting… like Elon Musk)

for me: it is a crisis of ignorance = STUPIDITY (not bliss) and lack of education

If you want to kill a country – kill it’s education system.

Because in a society full of idiots – what do you think will happen?

Shit will happen. A LOT OF SHIT.

USA… sorry to say but… unless USA can do the turnaround and become a beacon of light again – refugees will be the least problem – Nobody will want to move there anymore.

My sincere sympathy with the US Jills and Joes of mainstreet.
