Capitalism. Time for a reset — This is the new agenda

I'm a #Skeptic because of my experiences in life. I'm an #Optimist about the nature of our collective #humanity being more #good than #bad. I'm a #Pessimist about the people in power being far more likely to be #sociopathic than the population at large. This new thing the Financial Times is doing, #TheNewAgenda, well, it seems genuine.

They are mumbling or at least saying quietly, "hey #Capitalism, you're we're doing it wrong." They seem to be reporting with a #perspective of #introspect and #reckoning of overdue #liability #accounts of industrial capitalism. Typically, big-capitalism doesn't do introspect, it only does short term plans to beat their competitors to death.

I know it's very easy to put on a false front and get people to think you're doing something good when the #hidden #agenda, the true goal, is bad for most people. I'm going to presume innocence on the #FT here until proven otherwise. The FT was really good before this new "New-Thing" so I'm optimistic about it.

Why would Iran attack Saudi Aramco's oil facilities?

The FT News podcast called News In Focus just recently reviewed that recent question of, "did #Iran do the damage to the #Saudi #oil production facility?" The FT talks about claims of where the weapons were launched from and who built them as well as other nations having a consensus building and decaying over who to blame.

I'm personally not convinced yet by any claims of who did it, but if the #USA (my home country) wants to claim that #Iranian looking #weapons means Iran did it, I'm gonna have to call bullshit and fuck-you. We never find the time to blame ourselves for all the #death and #carnage that our weapons do in the hands of others! I'm leaving Iran off the hook on this one so far.

Congressional Dish Podcast Rocks!

I just love this Jennifer Briney #Podcaster! From the April-2013 CD024: Let’s Gut the STOCK Act episode where she first—in a non-partisan way—"gives the game away" of how unethical our "elected" officials can be, to the latest show where she reveals where she's coming from personally and ethically. She turns Congressional Gruel into palatable delicacies for the hungry masses. A true #Journalist.

"I Love America" Facebook page (pushing pro-Trump propaganda) is run by Ukrainians

I just caught this on my Twitter feed via Judd Legum, where the Popular.info site tells the story of how we still have an evil #Zuckerburg doing the #Facebook to the world.

So @ale :ale: you have quite a few things going on at https://www.hatthieves.es/, don't you. It's way more than I tried taking on so far.

The Trumped-up Economy and the coming world of hurt...

Back in August, #TheSignal #Podcast did an episode called How to start a currency war,

and it gave us a very foreboding message about one of the very real possibilities we are facing worldwide if my countries #Asshole in the #WhiteHouse continues making decisions to profit his ego and his massively wealthy donors bottom-lines.


Just this week, that same podcast aired another show along the same lines as the one linked above called, What happens in a recession.

The show paints a grim picture for the future, but it's not a dystopian fantasy, it's a likely outcome.


Because I tend to be a contrarian, I looked for a silver lining. This type of an economic downturn, while it's helping the rich, hurting the middle-class, and not affecting the poor, it will be helping the fight against #ClimateChange. We will be doing less of everything that releases carbons into the atmosphere, and less of everything that degrades the earth and sea.

Olga Lautman on the Russian Mafia

This one is so new that the #Podcast isn't even available on the Gaslit Nation website yet. I used the Lybsyn podcast manager to get the content here.

Olga "knows where the bodies are buried" when it comes to #NYC #Mobsters. She's in the know with the #Jewish and #Russian #Mob's and she's naming names, and putting string from one person to another.

The #RudyGiuliani thing was amazing. #Giuliani as the NY State Prosecutor got famous for going after Organized Crime, but now I see that was just him using public funds to clear out the #Italians so that the #Russians he was connected to could have it easier.

It’s an Economist’s World

This is soooo #Great!
The #Economist’s #Evolutionary path into the forefront of #Government is explored and scrutinized in a delightful way in this episode. As a staunch hater of #Friedman and his almost #Nefarious contributions to #Economic thought, I'm quite pleased to hear a new wave of thinkers are coming to the fore. Binyamin Appelbaum and his book,
"The Economists' Hour | False Prophets, Free Markets, and the Fracture of Society",
might get me to spend money on a paper book again! It's like Binyamin finally said, "the King has no clothes." Applebaum isn't pulling punches with his content and he's not sparing any former lead politicians from blame.


The interview starts at about 5:34

The page that audio comes from is https://slate.com/podcasts/the-gist/2019/09/new-york-times-binyamin-appelbaum-new-book-the-economists-hour
The attached article below is Applebaum's column in the NYT.

The New York Times: Opinion | Blame Economists for the Mess We’re In (By BINYAMIN APPELBAUM)



In the event that I have readers unfamiliar with the school of Economics, don't shy away. All people have the ability to contribute to this school of thought. In general, all economists study the motivation people have for selecting goods and services with their limited resources. All you need to participate is some personal insight and some curiosity in others rationale for their decisions.

Microeconomics focuses on those atomic level decisions like if you pick whole milk over 2% or a red-colored package over a green-colored package.

Macroeconomics focuses on what happens when all of us make decisions simultaneously, and how policy and/or regulatory actions can be enacted to avoid large scale societal problems.

Merriam-Webster's twitter account throws shade at US POTUS


This tweet is pretty funny. It's following #Trump's #Sharpie-gate. #FunFact altering #NOAA weather information is a federal crime.

The link to the tweet is M-W restoring #funny & archaic words to identify people in unflattering ways. #Mumpsimus was highlighted in the tweet (and it prompted #Trumpsimus), but that tweet links to a great list of fun words.

@Purism BTW, I'm in the latest pre-order group for the #Librem5.

Edward Snowden Interview with Jeremy Scahill

(I wasn't surprised to hear about this) People on a #Purism forum noted that verifiable sealed packaging was desired:
Preventing shipment interception, providing hardware integrity verification
BECAUSE the fucking #CIA opens packages to pre-hack you.

This is also attached to that idea of #security on a new level.

Novena | A new open-hardware computing platform, flexible and powerful, designed for use as a desktop, laptop, or standalone board.
For all the crazies who like to play war, I believe many in government offices are secretly glad that Snowden is alive and functional.

Wow, @pzmyers 🦑 on the #Federated systems! Cool. You're kind of the most famous name I saw in the #ActivityPub systems so far.

I'm not sure if anybody on #Friendica or the #Fediverse would notice my posting rate dropping. I've been doing things to the house to get it ready to sell. I can't wait to get out from under the soul-crushing debt.
It is a great time to sell. My wife is a Real Estate agent (for about 4 years now) and our national housing market is going to crest pricing soon. For the last 14 months in a row pricing has lowered the rate of increase, so picture the pricing curve at its apex over time.

I don't own a crystal ball though so the pricing may go flat like a satellite launched into orbit, or start to speed in upward ascent again or start dropping faster than they rose.

I want to rent and invest what we call equity for a while hoping the housing prices fall while we are renting.
I had similar thoughts.
