Earthist. Absolutely Pro-Democracy/Democracies. Undermining assumptions. Poet. Essayist. Photographer. Writer. Authentic Journalist. FreeThinker. CriticalThinker. Controversialist.*****Either capitalism carries fascism in its DNA or fascism carries capitalism in ITS DNA. It is clear that capitalism and democracy cannot co-exist. Democracy should rule capitalism but capitalism should Not rule democracy. Capitalism is in catastrophic failure as we speak. It is time to talk about ***** a Socialista alternative? a Mixed Economy alternative? *****. Gorbachev of the Soviet Union: glasnost, perestroika, democratizya and the Evil US Empire could use a big dose of all three. POLITICAL democracy is USELESS without ECONOMIC democracy. ***** I carry a cosmic perspective with me per Neil deGrasse Tyson. Public Intellecty'all. Authentic Journalist. Pro-Democracy Advocate. Anti-Stalinist/Fascist. Human Rights Activist. GWM. Contrarian. ***** CounterNarratives and CounterForces (checks and balances against societal power structures) are required for a society to be free and democratic. ***** Atomist. Epicurean. Lucretius: “De Rerum Natura” or "On The Nature of Things"***** I do not trust a single institution in this society from the ground up. Asker of awkward and inconvenient questions. Turn off the TV.

Democracy should rule Capitalism but Capitalism should NEVER rule Democracy. Without Economic Democracy, political democracy is useless and worthless.***** Our economic and social arrangements need to be changed but not just from one bad, rigid, closed, arbitrary, bureaucratic, Stalinist/Fascist or State Capitalist ideology to another. Let’s talk about and create new social arrangements, new democracies. Les Miserables.***** Karl Marx was accurate and correct about how Industrial Capitalism causes people to become alienated from each other. He was also accurate and correct about his 'labor theory of value' which shows why/how Capitalist thieves steal the value of a person's labor. A person works so many hours or days for s/himself and the rest of the labor is "free" and therefore that “free labor value” goes to the Capitalist One Per Centers as profit. And Marx was also accurate and correct in a whole lot of other things, principally his critique of capitalism and his analysis of society. We don't know anything about Marx -- who was a sociologist and not an economist btw -- and neither do we know anything about Adam Smith and capitalism -- except to bow down and worship the "wisdom of the (monopoly controlled) market". That is because neither capitalism nor socialism nor plain basic economics is a graduation requirement for any high school or university in the US Empire. White Rock lake park in Dallas. Lake Travis. Lady Bird Lake in Austin. The San Marcos River. Yosemite. Yellowstone. *****Mars Attacks.***** The United States was founded on the pillars of genocide; slavery; racism; white supremacy; male supremacy; christian supremacy; compulsory heterosexuality; abuse of humans and nature; exploitation of humans and nature; and especially full-blown hypocrisy. And Jesus did not like hypocrisy or hypocrites.*****Glenn Greenwald. Lewis Mumford, Richard Hofstadter, Derrick Jensen, Chris Hedges, David Foster Wallace, Henry A. Giroux, Christopher Lasch, Horkheimer and Adorno, Douglass Kellner, Max Weber, Jurgen Habermas, Jeffrey St. Clair, Normon Solomon, Richard Wolff, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen... Evidence is everywhere indicating the looming apocalypse.***** People tell me that I "pull no punches": and I agree. But as I try to avoid racist and misogynist words and phrases and thinking, I also try to avoid masculinist terms and thinking, especially terms of violence and sports terms, military terms. In high school my newspaper column was called "Like it Is" and I prefer to think of myself in those terms -- telling it "Like It Is".*****TURN OFF THE TV!
