1.) Is it just me or is everyone f’n brain washed into wanting a life devoid of freedom and happiness? Have people forgotten that WE make the world #economy work? We’re the consumers AND the work. The owners just facilitate between the groups & make a killing being middle men...
2.) If we ever broke free of our damn slumber & broke up these low competition industries there would be an entrepreneurial boom in the 2020s. Normal people will have opportunities to form businesses better than ever before without fear of reprisal from industry leaders...
3.) It’s absolutely imperative to expose these industry #Cartels who control every major revenue source in the world. There are 2,153 #Billionaires in the world who as a group, control more wealth & companies than the entire world population. They have boxed out small business.

#ElizabethWarren's bill reminds me of Romney's advice to youths in 4/2012, "Borrow money, if you have to, from your parents. Start a business... [Jimmy John Liautaud] borrowed $20K from his dad..."

The loan was c. 7/82 and was actually $25K.
$25K in 7/82 = $59K in 4/12
#Warren
In the first half of 2019, the nat'l average #rent increased by 2.6%.

Warren declined to be interviewed for this story. In May, at request of media, her campaign released a summary of her outside work. As a senatorial candidate, Warren released a shorter version, which omitted her work for Dow Chemical.

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry
..

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

I went to bed feeling betrayed--perhaps even enraged. I woke up, still feeling betrayed--but resolved. I still believe #AnitaHill. I still believe #ChristineBlaseyFord I still believe #survivors #women They have knocked us down, but not out. I still believe in the power of us.
Our perpetrators tried to stifle our voices too--and, WE ARE NOT GOING BACK. We will not be silenced or moved. Today, survivors will keep organizing, sharing our painful and hard truths until the very last hour, and then we'll take our fight to the ballot box.
Survivors matter and we do vote--and run for office too! We have been ignored, but not silenced #midterms A vote to support #Kavanaugh confirms more than one man, to the highest court in the land, you are also confirming #privilege #entitlement #injustice
