Once again the masters of neoliberalism, capital accumulation, and globalization meet to maintain business as usual. This year they’ll focus on 1) co-opting climate chaos; and, 2) quelling resistance from the baking/drowning/burning/starving peasantry.
This is sick. That sixty percent of our tax dollars go to the military industrial complex and investors make money off of it. Meanwhile the Earth systems that support life are in freefall. How much longer are people going to put up with this insanity?
The largest trade agreement ever – the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) – starts today. Globalization continues apace disrupting local, national and regional economies, expanding the precariat, neutering local community control, wiping out self-reliance & self-sufficiency knowledge and skill sets, and creating unsustainable dependencies for essential goods and services. The real tragedy of this economistic zombie death march however is what climate chaos impacts will do over time. As supply chains fail, states and their populations will reel in crisis. What is needed is localization, the opposite of globalization.
Democracy is being destroyed by economism, multilateral treaties, globalization and other forces by omission or commission. Here is an example of blatant willful undermining of democracy. Shameful! #Politics #DarkMoney #HeritageAction
