G20 sounds alarm over climate emergency

"The G20 group of the world’s wealthiest nations have agreed for the first time to collectively sound the alarm over the threat to the financial system posed by the climate emergency."

"Overcoming objections from Donald Trump’s US administration, G20 finance ministers and central bank governors meeting in Saudi Arabia over the weekend agreed to issue their first ever communique with references to climate change, according to reports from Reuters."

"Sources told the news agency that the statement of priorities included the importance of examining the implications of global heating for financial stability, as part of the work of the G20’s Financial stability Board, the steering group for international banking industry rules."

"The language represented a compromise to overcome opposition from US officials at the first major meeting of Saudi Arabia’s year-long presidency of the G20, according to the sources. An attempt to include references to the downside risks for global growth posed by the climate crisis was dropped."

‘Parasite’ paints a nightmarish picture of Korean inequality. The reality in America is even worse.
Add to list


"As many economists have noted, growing inequality in the United States is no accident, but rather the direct result of policy decisions made by lawmakers and their wealthy allies in the business community. As the United Nations recently put it in a report on global inequality, 'People in positions of power tend to capture political processes'. The wealthy use their power to write rules that allow them to accrue more wealth."

The Great Affordability Crisis Breaking America

"In the 2010s, the national unemployment rate dropped from a high of 9.9 percent to its current rate of just 3.5 percent. The economy expanded each and every year. Wages picked up for high-income workers as soon as the Great Recession ended, and picked up for lower-income workers in the second half of the decade. Americans’ confidence in the economy hit its highest point since 2000, right before the dot-com bubble burst. The headline economic numbers looked good, if not great."

"But beyond the headline economic numbers, a multifarious and strangely invisible economic crisis metastasized: Let’s call it the Great Affordability Crisis. This crisis involved not just what families earned but the other half of the ledger, too—how they spent their earnings. In one of the best decades the American economy has ever recorded, families were bled dry by landlords, hospital administrators, university bursars, and child-care centers. For millions, a roaring economy felt precarious or downright terrible."

CBS News: Americans know wealth inequality is a problem, but what does it look like?

CBS News anchor blows mall shoppers’ minds by showing real US wealth gap — using American pie

"A four minute video that aired on CBS Friday morning was praised for using slices of real pie to show the huge wealth gap in the U.S.—surprising passers-by who joined anchor Tony Dokoupil at a table set up at a mall in West Nyack, New York."

"'Give this video four minutes and let’s start the revolution', tweeted actor Matthew Lillard."

"In the video, Dokoupil asks passers-by to divvy a pie sliced into ten pieces onto plates for quintiles of the U.S. based on income, top 20%, next 20%, etc."

"Even the most cynical participant didn’t come close to the real amount—nine pieces for the top 20% of Americans and the bill for the lowest 20%."

Quote of note:

"The coming crisis of capitalism is not only economic; it’s also a moral and political crisis. A constitution in tatters is the death knell of democracy. By the same token, corporate monopolies are incompatible with a market economy."

The #banksters are scared. They are realizing that the public is waking up to their greed and excesses...

Bank of America CEO: 'Don't challenge capitalism'

"n a new interview from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Bank of America (BAC) CEO Brian Moynihan credited innovation and a 'capitalist spirit' in the U.S. with powering the country’s longest economic expansion in history."

"'The U.S. economy just has a way of grinding through, because that innovation, the capital that's there, the capitalist spirit ... it works better than any economy in the world', Moynihan told Yahoo Finance’s editor-in-chief, Andy Serwer, this week. 'That's one of the things we're trying to get everybody to understand, is you can be capitalist and ... and make progress for society. But don't challenge capitalism'."

"Moynihan’s praise of capitalism comes amid increased attention on democratic socialism, a political theory favored by Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, which focuses on empowering workers. But he declined to tell Serwer whether his remark about capitalism was a 'nod' to Sanders or to his fellow candidate, Elizabeth Warren, who’s sometimes referred to as a socialist though she denies being one."

This is How a Society Dies

America & Britain are Textbook Examples of a New, Gruesome Phenomeon:

Rich Nations Self-Destructing Into Poor Failed States


Nobody seems to have noticed: the only two rich societies in the world with falling:
  • Life expectancies
  • Incomes
  • Savings
  • Happiness
  • Ttrust
It’s not one of history’s most improbable coincidences that America and Britain are collapsing in eerily similar ways, at precisely the same time. It’s a relationship. What connects the dots?

How did the English speaking world end up like the new Soviet Union?

To understand that point, consider the fact that you yourself probably think that’s an overstatement.

The Soviet Union couldn’t provide basics for its citizens — hence the famous breadlines. In America, people beg each other for money to pay for insulin and antibiotics, decent food is unavailable in vast swathes of the country, and retirement and paying off one’s debt are impossibilities.

Just like in the Soviet Union, basics are becoming both unavailable and unaffordable. What happens? People die.

True story. Yes, I know this article is from 2006, but I revisit this topic every year at about this time of year...

FBI Considered "It's A Wonderful Life" Communist Propaganda

"I love It's a Wonderful Life because it teaches us that family, friendship, and virtue are the true definitions of wealth."

"In 1947, however, the FBI considered this anti-consumerist message as subversive Communist propaganda."

"According to Professor John Noakes of Franklin and Marshall College, the FBI thought Life smeared American values such as wealth and free enterprise while glorifying anti-American values such as the triumph of the common man."

I've been a longtime user, who has only sometimes been disappointed by the product. Generally, the more whizz bangers was added, the less I liked it, and I was less than happy that they did so little to support iCab and other alternative browsers.

I was more than a little worried about this when they switched to their subscription model. Fortunately, there are now other alternatives.

@Mudflap so i will say about evolution. As the great ape evolutionist:

> Evolution is a Fact

Yes. Evolution, but not Darwinism:
Image/Photoivan zlax wrote the following post Mon, 28 Oct 2019 18:39:43 +0300

basis of conquest/colonial/capitalist pr
Conquest, Colonialism, Сapitalism are all collective forms of interaction between one group of people and another. Such forms of group interaction become available due to the organization and collective actions of many different people with different interests, when they start to act for a common goal (family, tribal, class etc.)
A common language is not enough for the success of such collective forms of activity; such forms of domination of some people over others meet with natural counteraction. A common social philosophy or ideology is required to justify the advantages of some groups over others. Thanks to the introduction of the Prussian educational standard of education in most civilized countries of the world, the social philosophy of Darwinism has been instilled for several generations already, through a 10-year regime from bell to bell during puberty. Various national and class theories of social Darwinism boil down to the fact that they proclaim struggle for existence, natural selection (survival of the fittest) and competition as the most important factors of evolution.
The postulates of social Darwinism are well grounded in the social sciences. But Darwinism itself was initially poorly grounded in the natural sciences and even rejected by academies, after confirmation of Gregor Johann Mendel's discoveries about genetic inheritance. In order to preserve the authority of Darwinism and its influence on the social sciences, academicians developed a synthetic theory of evolution. It is extremely important for the academic community to maintain this dilapidated evolutionary foundation, since all academicians without exception are fittest in the competition for academic titles, and the academic hierarchy is based on Social Darwinism.
But meanwhile, the evolutionary model of Kropotkin has long been known in the non-academic natural-scientific scholar community: Mutual Aid - A Factor of Evolution. This evolutionary theory, published 117 years ago, is well grounded, threre are many examples of stable and thriving populations prone to intraspecific and, especially, interspecific mutual aid. Animal and human examples demonstrate the advantages of mutual aid over primitive natural selection (at the time of publication, Darwinism had not yet been disproved by discoveries in the field of inheritance):
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Mutual_Aid_a_Factor_of_Evolution
Although Social Kropotkinism potentially level out academic, national and other authorities based on Social Darwinism, Kropotkin's very model of evolution is the most scientifically sound theoretical basis for describing current biological diversity.

Завоевания, колониализм, капитализм – всё это коллективные формы взаимодействия между одной группой людей и другой. Подобные формы группового взаимодействия становятся доступны благодаря организации и коллективным действиям множества различных людей с разными интересами, когда они начинают действовать ради общих целей (семейной, племенной, классовой и т.п.)
Общего языка для успеха таких коллективных форм деятельности недостаточно, подобные формы доминирования одних людей над другими встречают естественное противодействие. Требуется общая социальная философия или идеология, для того, чтобы обосновывать преимущества одних групп людей над другими. Благодаря введению Прусского образовательного стандарта обучения в большинстве цивилизованных государств планеты, уже нескольким поколениям привита социальная философия дарвинизма, посредством 10-летнего режима от звонка до звонка во время полового созревания. Различные национальные и классовые теории социального дарвинизма, сводятся к тому, что объявляют борьбу за существование, естественный отбор (выживание сильнейших), конкуренцию – важнейшими факторами эволюции.
Постулаты социал-дарвинизма хорошо обоснованы социальными науками. Но сам дарвинизм изначально был плохо обоснован и даже отвергнут академической естественной наукой, после подтверждения открытий Грегора Иоганн Менделя о генетической наследственности. Для сохранения авторитета дарвинизма и его влияния на социальные науки академиками была разработана синтетическая теория эволюции. Для академического сообщества крайне важно поддерживать этот ветхий эволюционный фундамент, ведь все без исключения академики – это сильнейшие в конкурентной борьбе за академические звания, академическая иерархия основана на социал-дарвинизме.
Но между тем, в неакадемической естественно-научной среде давно известна эволюционная модель Кропоткина: взаимная помощь как фактор эволюции. Эта эволюционная теория, опубликованная 117 лет назад, хорошо обоснована, перечислено множество примеров устойчивых и процветающих популяций склонных к внутривидовой и особенно межвидовой взаимной помощи. На примерах животных и людей демонстрируются преимущества взаимопомощи, перед примитивным естественным отбором (во время публикации дарвинизм ещё не был опровергнутой открытиями в области наследственности):
https://ru.wikisource.org/wiki/Взаимная_помощь_как_фактор_эволюции_(Кропоткин_1907)
Несмотря на то, что социал-кропоткинизм потенциально нивелирует академические, национальные и прочие авторитеты, основанные на социал-дарвинизме, сама же модель эволюции Кропоткина – это наиболее научно обоснованный теоретический фундамент для описания нынешнего биологического разнообразия.

Or because you try to promote Western neocolonialism regarding Kyoto Protocol promotion?

Earlier, the West used this colonial manipulation immediately after the collapse of the USSR:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyoto_Protocol
The consequences of this treaty: Western Europe has outsourced its harmful and environmentally unfriendly production to the East.
http://www.bloha.info/view/articles/1011642/
After the report on the state and environmental protection of the Russian Federation, Yasnaya Polyana was included in the list of settlements most affected by air pollution with various harmful substances.
Shchekinoazot, which is known to produce urea-formaldehyde concentrate, was concerned about pollution data that appeared in the media.
According to some reports, the degree of air pollution with formaldehyde in Yasnaya Polyana has exceeded 20 times the limit of its maximum permissible concentration.
Yasnaya Polyana is the place where i was born. This example from my personal experience.
The USA advertised this Kyoto protocol most of all and was its initiator, but as a result the USA declined ratification of it, because the US scientists demonstrated to public that there are no scientific justifications for this:
http://www.petitionproject.org/


The next year, this treaty expires, the term of the Western artificial limitation of the industrial development of developing countries under the guise of "caring for nature" ends (i hope my example about farmaldehyde in Yasnaya Polyana clearly showed how the West takes care of its ecology). It seems that the next stage of this neocolonial undertaking is being prepared.

According to independent researchers, the Rockefeller family took a major part in lobbying the Kyoto Protocol:
https://www.globalresearch.ca/rockefeller-familys-covert-climate-change-plan/5678775
What is important, however, is to acknowledge the role of the Rockefeller family –which historically was the architect of “Big Oil”– in supporting the Climate Change debate as well as the funding of scientists, environmentalists and NGOs involved in grassroots activism against “Big Oil” and the fossil fuel industry.
Apparently, many Western youth environmental initiatives, widely covered by the media, are also not without the support of the Rockefeller charitable organizations, since their activities began to be covered just before the deadline for the Kyoto Protocol. The materials of independent researchers confirm this:

The US Congress deprived the Rockefeller family of profits from oil production. Therefore, they acquired deposits of rare earth elements in the Western colonies. Rare earth elements are necessary for the functioning of renewable energy sources, for which this environmental campaign was started. Most of the resources needed for renewable energy are concentrated in Africa. Often, child slave labor is used in mines, so that progressive Western consumers can refuse coal and oil in favor of "clean" energy.

Official narrative is risks of "trade war" with the US but it also seems they just want cheaper workforce because Chinese no longer work for a bowl of rice. So I looked for it and found earlier article confirming it. And let me quote this:
"A lower birthrate, higher labor costs and the risk of overly centralizing its production in one country. These adverse factors are not going anywhere," said one executive with knowledge of the situation.
Lower birthrate. "Hey, they don't have enough hungry mouths out there to be really desperate and work for us on our terms. There is not enough pressure. Let's move elsewhere"

Do NOT consume palm oil. Palm oil plantations KILL helpless orangutans on purpose. When you eat processed food products with palm oil, THIS is what you are buying.

Palm Oil Investigations


Image/Photo
Palm oil and species extinction ​Quote Taken from COP (Centre For Orangutan Protection) "Orangutans’ #poaching is done deliberately as a policy made by #palmoil #corporations. Therefore they hire local people as pest busters, who serve the #corporation with #killing any #wild #animals, including #orangutans, which spoil #palm oil trees within the #plantations. The pest busters will bring up a cut-off hand of an #orangutan they have killed and hand it to the corporation as a proof. When they find an adult female orangutan with her baby, they will usually kill the ‘mother‘ and take away the baby for pet or sale". It is estimated that over 50 Orangutan are killed every week due to #deforestation. #Forest homes are cleared by either heavy machinery or fire. Orangutans are left starved with no #food source and often trapped in pockets of isolated areas with no way out and often wander onto plantations searching for food. The orangutan are considered a pest by many of the oil palm companies as they often destroy young palm plants in the hope of finding food.​ They are run over by excavation equipment, doused in petrol and burnt alive, captured, tortured, beaten, shot with air guns or slaughtered. As forest home is destroyed they become vulnerable to poachers. Infant orangutans have monetary value and are often kept as pets or illegally smuggled, the only way a mother will let go of her infant is if she has been killed.

"Something is wrong with today’s version of capitalism. It’s not just that it’s unfair. It’s that it’s no longer capable of delivering products that work. The root cause is the generation of high and persistent profits, to the exclusion of production. We have let financiers take over our corporations. They monopolize industries and then loot the corporations they run."

A random jobs rant I wrote in a comment:

I appreciate where De Blasio's mentality and ideals come from, but I pretty much completely disagree with them. The full time job is a historical aberration and will ultimately be seen as a tragedy for humanity - as Rick and Morty described it, "Slavery with extra steps".

Humans are indeed hardwired to perform "work" - but not the sort of work capitalism has imposed on us. The sorts of work we instinctively value are devalued by capitalism to the point that we suffer from not being able to do them. We're supposed to "work" alongside our friends and family, doing things together and raising our children; caring for our elders.

Instead, we commute to jobs where we do the bidding of employers who treat us as replaceable cogs (and if they don't, they get put out of business by competitors which do). We spend precious little time with our friends and family. We pay others to fill in the gaps - others who will never have the same sort of genuine relationship with our children and elders because money is involved.

The job is, in fact, a travesty that has been destroying what it even means to be human. And we culturally know it in our bones. Every year, we celebrate countless heartwarming Christmas stories about Ebenezer Scrooges learning the true meaning of humanity. There isn't even some debate about it. When these Christmas movies tell us spending time with our families and friends matter more than money ... we just accept it.

... and then go back to work, because Capitalism compels us.

It's a sham. There's no good reason for us humans to tie our value to jobs and we actually already culturally know it. Centuries of Capitalism has not been able to erase it, because it's innate within our nature.

Wonders of #capitalism strike again!

It is apple harvest time and this season is generous. Some people are giving them out for free. These pictured were given to someone who lives outside of Moscow and that person brought some to me. I am sorting them so I can consume ones that are about to spoil first. I like apples.

At the same time I went to a supermarket a week ago and they had apples for about the same price as mangoes. The price was cheap for mango but it was way too high for apples. Not unaffordable but isn't right. How something that has to be shipped from overseas cost the same as something that is so abundant that it has to be buried in the ground about 100 kilometers away?

Not that I mind cheap mangoes and prices will of course correct soon but...

Quote of the week:

"Trumpist policies favor the rich and US corporations, advance an economic version of Social Darwinism, with all-out competition ensuring that only the most powerful survive and the rest face precarity, debt, and ruin. Trumpism tries to compensate for the social void created by this neoliberal individualism by fostering what we can call repressive collectivism, and which, as the present author suggests, can be analyzed at three levels — economic, political, and ideological."

"On the level of political economy, repressive collectivism is organized as an antagonism between austerity and precarity, which is used to advance protectionist policies that favor the interests of US capital."

"At the level of politics and the state, deregulation, privatization, and commodification give wide freedoms to corporations while policing the poor, promoting law-and-order politics, and instituting progressively more draconian racist immigration policies. At the level of ideology and culture, we find a combination of hyper-consumerist, narcissistic individualism, the cult of leadership, and nationalism. Under repressive collectivism, nationalism promotes the idea of the unity of US capital and US labor and advances the racist and xenophobic scapegoating of immigrants, refugees, people of color, Muslims, and foreigners."
