"What is the #economy? I would argue that it doesn't exist in the physical world. It is a product of our #imagination. It is made out of #ideas. It does have an effect on the physical world. But the imagined order that we have is not succeeding."

3/ For Organized International #HumanTrafficking Rings to remain Fully operational, Corrupt Officials are used to help orchestrate ways that enable & cover-up these horrendous “Crimes Against Humanity”. Before we take a look at #Ukraine, let us first look at a similar scenario...

The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society" web.archive.org/web/2012102019… "the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
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/…

And now a word from those behind the climate strikes. The We Mean Business co-founders et al. They thank you, for without you, there is no saving the ruling classes & the suicidal system killing us.

Let's take a look.

1st up-The co-founder of We Mean Business liked this one
If you are not caught up with We Mean Business, you may find Volume II ACT V worth your time:

Here is another that Grieve appears to like.

Greta: "We don't want to be heard."

I wonder what adult taught @GretaThunberg to hate democracy? Wall Street wants to heard - as does We Mean Business et al. (And today sadly they were).

I interrupt the relentless assault on our Mother Earth led by the ruling classes, to bring to your attention to critical information by @Mision_Verdad regarding a new coup attempt underway in Bolivia. This relates to the #Amazon fires media saturation. #NPIC #Imperialism
@Mision_Verdad Capitalism never sleeps. Nor does imperialism.

The original article by @brunosgarzini for @Mision_Verdad:

LA HUELLA DE ESTADOS UNIDOS EN LA INCIPIENTE REVOLUCIÓN DE COLORES EN BOLIVIA:

I've been finishing the second volume of "The Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg for Consent" series. As soon as I ventured near social media I was inundated with the Amazon fires messaging.
The World Economic Forum (billionaires club): "...the house is clearly on fire - We need to scale solutions now if we have any chance of saving it."

Corporations burning forests for palm oil: not frightening.
Forest fires: frightening.

Only the markets can save us.

Certification schemes. Green Bonds. A "New Deal For Nature". We need momentum. We need that "Paris moment".

Today we are going to play a game. The game is called "Which is more valuable". This is not a parody. This was published as an interactive game on BBC in 2015. It's demonstrating how markets can (& will) value the natural world.

Let's play.

#1
If you said "acre of oyster reef" - you were right.

Next question...
#2

Which is more valuable?

@chronicle has published another piece arguing that #highered is out of touch with regular Americans and disliked by them. It stages the eternal battle between a dynamic society and backward educators. The conclusion is always the same: colleges must "change how they do business"
The frame is compiled from Republican talking points, particularly that college means liberal brainwashing. bit.ly/2tyh31u
@karinfischer puts this out there as though it were a common opinion, not a refutable falsehood (start w @AaronRHanlon bit.ly/2SeAINK) /2
The culture wars discussion goes on for a long time, hitting themes we've heard since the 1980s. They are all about how #highered has been bad--has failed the reasonable expectations of the economy and society. Us must repent and conform to the surrounding society. /3

I like @AlexUsherHESA's work and read his newsletter more or less every day. So I was surprised by his patronizing take on Stefan Collini conta.cc/2SUddhd I like Collini personally and professionally, I should say up front. But Usher gets the UK highered crisis wrong /1
He says,"certainly the UK policy debate is driven by third-rate econ-talk" that is "pretty thin stuff." True, but this thin stuff eliminated public funding for UK #highered in most subjects, allowed the instant tripling of fees, and undermined the nonelite end of the sector. /2
the thin stuff is a particularly clear version of #neoliberalism via Thatcher as @davies_will has analyzed, fused with Tory austerity ideology as described by @leninology and imposed by the UK's centralized state. The coalition gov used market economics common in the West. /3

I know it's late, and there are immediate needs families are dealing with, but coverage of the #AndoverMAFires #LawrenceFires is already atrocious, so I wanted to share a few general thoughts and observations, some of which may explain what you're about to see unfold. #mapoli
We're hearing about @ColumbiaGasMA over and over. And yes, they're the contractor. But let's remember that Columbia is a subsidiary of the much larger @NiSourceInc: nisource.com/customers/wher… #mapoli #LawrenceFires #AndoverMAFires #Lawrence #Andover
In fact, here's a press release from 9.13.2018 about the work they're doing via Columbia in #Lawrence and #Andover (among other places). Link (and screenshot just in case). columbiagasma.com/en/about-us/ne… "Enhanced safety features, Reliability of service for years to come..." #mapoli

One thing I’m worried about—in addition to my family’s safety—re: #Maria in #PuertoRico is how #colonialism capitalizes on #NaturalDisaster
In the early 1900s US #businesses were able to monopolize #PuertoRican farm land after Hurricane San Ciriaco (1899) devastated the #island
#Farmers who were never able to rebuild after the #hurricane were forced to either give up their #land or enter unjust agreements
