The most obvious political reality of the past fifty years is that the status quo needs to be changed. It does us little good to tinker with a system so deeply flawed as the one our history has saddled us with. We don't need better leaders of the same old system, we need a new system.
my favorite UToob gramma...
I'm not sure where this is coming from but I'm certainly interested to see if this catches on and where it goes. It's exactly what is needed not only in France, but here in this country and basically the entire planet. Organize independently from the corrupted political systems that represent the oligarchies and demand a complete change in human governance from rule by the rich to power to the people.
"Globalism - the operation or planning of economic and foreign policy on a global basis."
"America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism".
Donald Trump, last week at the United Nations
(Note: that statement by Trump is a tell, a giveaway. He's clearly fucking with people and enjoys it. Three days later he signed this globalist agreement.)
“The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer.”

Once the uber-rich take over, the only options are tyranny and revolution. Aristotle (over 2300 years ago)
What is that saying, "the more things change, the more they stay the same"? They're staying real, real same, man.
Damn man. Is it even possible? Can we stop these fuckers? Or are we all just dust in the wind? Is hope just another four letter word? Face it, we're hooked on illusions. Illusions created by those we theoretically are supposed to trust, i.e., those that make all the decisions for the rest of us. That's why we let them make all the decisions isn't it, because we trust them? If not, why do we let them do that?
Something to keep in mind… Climate Change is not an abstract concept – it is about people, water, food, energy, and infrastructure…
So, Kavanaugh seals the deal of the Supreme Court among all the goodwill and collegiality required for the occasion. That is to say, he affirms the trend already set by a court which had pronounced Bush to be the “elected” President in 2000, and had decided that corporations were people just like us, and so on.

I've always found it interesting that the United States and France both celebrate their independence days, at least in a sense, in July, just nine days apart from each other. Of course, the American and French Revolutions were somewhat different in character. For America it was more a war of national liberation against what had become an imperial master, determined to keep its colonies subservient (the crux of Tom Paine's argument in Common Sense), though there were elements of civil war and social revolution as well. France's revolution, on the contrary, began as a strictly internal affair, an upheaval against a badly outmoded form of government and social system.
