On Monday the #EZLN came to Dublin to meet our movements.

You could tell the story of Dublin’s #SocialMovements through class:

they met working-class community groups, housing activists, migrant members of the new Irish working class, trade unionists and many shades of left. Welcome to Dublin
But you could also say that we talked about #patriarchy and violence against women, #racism and colonialism, land and ecology, autonomy and rebellion. For the #EZLN as in actual communities, these are not separate struggles:

As the system focuses on #Economic Growth, #Corporate Interest & Businesses First while exploiting the #Labor who are treated like hell & not paid a #LivingWage nor anything while everything to basically live is practically an Expense under #Capitalism.

1/10War on virus is about cognitive dissonance. Those of us who stood by silent as minority communities were gentrified through the war on drugs, or profited by it, do not imagine being the targets of an epic urban renewal through lockdown measures and vaccine mandates.
2/10War on virus is about destabilization.  The bulk of wage workers as well as business owners who cater to the establishment must collide with those who have realized that their livelihoods are being destroyed or their businesses are being swallowed by large corporate entities.
3/10Communities are divided.  Family members are divided over fear and uncertainty.  We are being primed for further colonization of humanity and nature.

Thinking about Dept of Energy, Oak Ridge & Tennessee where TLAV Ryan is based - outside Nashville. Do you think they're not aware of plans for PRIVATE investment markets in health outcomes tied to medicare EHR and wearables? Hashed Health is in Nashville.
Listen to the longer talk. The framing is that the threat originates OUTSIDE the US - that with some mental gymnastics the WEF isn't also US? Hashed Health is in Cristian's back yard. They've been in on blockchain EHR Medicaid for years. See John Bass. littlesis.org/person/345925-…
They are putting the masses on blockchain electronic health records so private investors can package and securitize health behaviors. The problem is the public private partnership - not the government alone. The state is doing BlackRock's bidding here. hashedhealth.com/himss18-blockc…

I'm not a lawyer. I didn't attend law school. I'm the biggest skeptic of the #RuleOfLaw that I know.

Here's my thread of highlights (excerpts & passages) from #SupremeMyths: Why The Supreme Court Is Not A Court & Its Justices Are Not Judges by @espinsegall + my comments.
Preface | “It’s no great secret that the Supreme Court’s Constitutional Law decisions reflect the personal values of the Justices…that politics & personality affect the Court’s decisions is only the beginning of the story.”

#SCOTUS produces case law, hence, it's a legislature.
Prologue xiii | “If changing judges changes law, it is not even clear what law is.” ~ Judge Richard Posner

A law means whatever the hell the writers say it means or doesn't mean, based on definition of words & syntax. Writing laws is an art form, it's not mathematics.

2| What caught my eye in this @guardian article was the quote:

“In Israel there is a strong political movement to make #diplomacy through #business. Business first, diplomacy later. When you make a deal together, it opens a lot of doors to diplomacy.”
3| The notion that #profits trump #consent is rather disturbing, but perfectly in line with the product- #spyware.

For six years, privatised Southern Water deliberately poured enormous volumes of untreated sewage into the sea to avoid financial penalties & the cost of upgrading & maintaining infrastructure.

Deregulated free-market #capitalism isn't working.

theguardian.com/environment/20…
The privatised water company discharged between 16 & 21 BILLION litres of raw sewage into some of the most precious & delicate environments in the country.

But hey, at least the inefficient Marxist nanny state wasn't running it, & the shareholders did extremely well out of it!
“These offences show a shocking & wholesale disregard for the environment, for precious & delicate ecosystems & coastlines, for human health, & for fisheries & other legitimate businesses that operate in the coastal waters,” said the judge.

The deregulated free-market in action!

In the 19th century, a Bengali Shudra widow had outwitted The British East India Company & protected the #Ganga as a #commons for fishing rights, using Anglo-Saxon #capitalism’s potent weapon — private property. My story on Rani Rashmoni.
thehindu.com/society/the-sh…
I have grown up with this understanding that Bengali's are bad at business, we are somehow too intellectual & idealistic to survive the rough & tumble world of commerce. Poppycock! If you study 19th century Bengali capitalists, they amassed huge wealth & power through trade.
Rani Rashmoni thrived in an upper caste male dominated world of commerce with a strong moral compass. Her philanthropy was legendary. She was deeply empathetic of the plight of the underprivileged - the only landlord of her time who actively divested from indigo cultivation.

Let’s be clear.

#Hustle culture is just #capitalism repackaged to be acceptable to Millennials.

🧵
2/ The current set of power elites are trying to sell us the idea that if we just work ourselves to DEATH until we’re 65, then we will have finally “earned” the right to rest and happiness.

Uhhh….no.

We are all worthy of those things TODAY.

Especially Black women.
3/ Capitalism can only exist as long as it has a pool of people it can extract labor and talent from.

Racism & sexism are systems that create a consistent pool of dehumanized labor to exploit without raising alarm.

Therefore, Racism, Sexism & Capitalism are inextricably linked.

1/3 "Anarchism means that you should be free; that no one should enslave you, boss you, rob you, or impose upon you.

It means that you should be free to do the things you want to do; and that you should not be compelled to do what you don’t want to do." theanarchistlibrary.org/library/alexan…
2/3 "No, my friend, terrible as it is to admit it, there is no justice in the world.

Worse yet: there can be no justice as long as we live under conditions which enable one person to take advantage of another’s need, to turn it to his profit, and exploit his fellow man."
3/3 "There can be no justice between master and servant.

Nor equality.

Justice and equality can exist only among equals."

The elite want more deregulated free-market capitalism.

Yet despite the best efforts of newspaper owners, broadcasters, politicians, lobbyists & think tanks, 67% of British people strongly support MORE REGULATION of business, compared to 53% in Germany.

pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2021…
British people also desire a much more expansive role for the state: 62% deem it “very important” for the Govt to build more public housing, & 53% want to increase benefits for the poor - higher than other countries. 50% want a Universal Basic Income - much higher than elsewhere.
The fake 'culture war' fought every day by "Libertarians" & free-market supporters in the press, on radio & on TV, is designed to distract voters from the multiple catastrophic failures of deregulated free market capitalism by keeping us outraged, obsessed with trivia, & divided.
