Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…

@TheCollectiveQ Which makes today's FF Ship Fire an obvious Cabal Hit.
THEY want Abortion from #Conception to #Labor (today is Labor Day. Mayday: 0330 = 33. 39 on board 13 x 3. 34 missing. (7 is God's number of perfection = their mockery of "we are created in the image of God". Date: 9/2 =11...
@TheCollectiveQ ...11 is the number of human sacrifice. Date 11/12 (9+2 = 11) (2+1+9 = 12) = 11/12 = 11+12. "23". THEY LOVE "23". THEY LOVE September (9the month)/23 = 9/23. How often do we see that in predictive programming? Sank at 64ft depth. 64, "the cumulation of all things". The completion

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

Thread. This is a response to a conversation on @nhannahjone ‘s timeline a couple of days ago about slavery. She argued that for most of U.S. history, “black people were set completely *outside* of the class structure.”
threadreaderapp.com/thread/1102545…
That slaves, “As non-people, as property, as a tradable commodity, they were classless. Their race meant they had NO class.” Most people on her TL agreed with her. A few were puzzled and skeptical. In another tweet in response to a critic she said:
“Can a table or a mule be part of a class. If so, then, yes, AMerican slaves were part of a class.” The idea that enslaved people were regarded as property is a contradiction on its face, as many scholars have argued. Slaves were commodified for the purpose of exploiting their

HISTORY LESSON FOLKS

🔴In 1943 The Institute of Public Affairs aka @TheIPA was established by notable businessmen in response to an outstanding win by Labor in the Federal Election in same year

🔴Their intent was to SMASH LABOR, the UNIONS and to fight SOCIALISM.
🔴In the following year @TheIPA established the Liberal Party of Australia.

😩You can see ‘NOTHING HAS CHANGED’.

🔴These TORIES LOATHE LABOR & the UNION MOVEMENT hence ⚠️@ScottMorrisonMP > #UnionThugs campaign.

NOTE #NeoLiberals, #Libertarians DO NOT ACT in the PUBLIC GOOD
#UnionThug

🔴Ever wondered why Joe Hockey & Tony Abbott allowed / facilitated the demise of the Australian CAR INDUSTRY > it was because they were targeting UNIONS, the car industry was perhaps the most UNIONISED of all industries.
🔴Tories LOATHE #UNIONS
except their @TheIPA

These were “work or fight” laws originally issued during World War I to require able bodied men to either serve in the military or find civilian jobs. In the South, there was already a long tradition of coercing black labor through vagrancy laws. Black men were disproportionately
arrested under “work or fight”. But the white South originated something wholly unintended in the law by targeting black WOMEN. A military conscription was used as a pretext to force them to work as domestics in white homes, at precisely the time other jobs were opening up
for them in the war industry. Maintaining white domesticity was considered too important to sacrifice and thus was treated like a war aim. White women were not expected to perform their own cleaning, cooking, washing because that was consigned to black women.

Outtakes from the #DNC Executive Meeting in #PuertoRico (thread)

Chair promises a 2020 process that is fair. Will release a protocol on debates soon; expect debates in summer 2019 . Will decide by March 2019 the Host City for 2020 Convention: Houston, Miami Beach, or Milwaukee.
We have worked hard to rebuild trust on our presidential process. Rules and Bylaws Cttee working with early states on rules. A key rule change ends superdelegates voting 1st round absent consensus candidate BUT elected officials can still be PLEOs & not run against constituents.
The PLEO Party Leader Elected Official designation is for pledged delegates who are Members of Congress Governors etc who want a first round #DNC convention vote but don’t want to run against activist to get there.

The #legitimacy of any form of #government is not and cannot be based upon #consent, but upon how well it protects the rights of those who refuse to consent.
When the bullshit is stripped away, #Socialism is #theft, and can never be a moral form of political economy, because it cannot protect the rights of those who refuse to consent to the theft of their earned wealth. Those who do consent are not prevented under any other system…
from engaging in #voluntary #cooperative #ownership of #capital. Therefore, #Socialism is not defined by voluntary participation, but by #coercion, or #theft, a universal #moral harm. #Intent is not #magic. Good intent and good works do not and cannot excuse the theft.

.@realsportshbo revealed another ugly aspect to @NFL concussion story: Under existing terms of settlement with @NFLPA, board administering funds has denied most claims & major diagnoses such as behavioral issues & depression are not even covered. #labor #publichealth #oligarchy
.@nfl claims that many applications r fraudulent. Of course, people should defer to the league, since it's an expert in fraud. It misled its labor force for years about dangers of the sport & it has misled municipal governments into subsidizing its stadiums #GameRecognizesGame
This story represents almost everything wrong in #USA. #Oligarchy begrudges slimmest slices of pie to #labor, & we the #Idiocracy buy billionaires' merchandise made by more oppressed workers elsewhere & use $ from public treasuries to replace functioning stadiums for those with

#KarlMarx200 thread:

1. In my own #research, I have found Marx's notion of #contradiction particularly useful.

In his analysis, Marx noted how the contradiction between #labor and #capital accounted for many of the social dynamics of #capitalism.
2. The contradiction does not necessarily mean #conflict, but tendencies that "pull" in different directions and are in a dialectical relation to each other.

The contradiction of labor/capital can be accommodated in different ways and with very different consequences.
3. I like how this notions focuses on changing social dynamics. In my own work on #land use of #Mengen speakers in #PapuaNewGuinea, I've used the notion of #contradiction, to think about social forces underpinning Mengen land ownership and use.
