here seth god in, who is not exactly a radical nor a conspiracy theorist, talks about how industrialists modified the original icarus myth to suit their needs and how public school was invented to feed factory labor.

My Grandmother’s Desperate Choice

From the article:
“If I couldn’t immediately explain to my daughter how Win died, I decided, I could at least explain why. ‘She needed help really badly and no one would help her so she died,’ I told her.

Then I added a reassurance that I’m not sure I’d feel confident offering today. ‘It’s not a thing that would happen to us now,’ I said. ‘If we ever needed that kind of help, we would get it and we would be safe.'”
From the article: My grandmother died of a self-induced abortion. In the Trump era, her story has taken on a new sense of urgency.

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders
From the article: This is what oligarchy looks like. This is what corporate power is all about. This is what greed is doing to our country.

Amazon, whose owner Jeff Bezos is now the wealthiest person in the world, has used its enormous power to repeal a very modest tax on profitable corporations in Seattle designed to address the affordable housing crisis in that city. Last year, as a result of corporate loopholes, Amazon didn’t pay a penny in federal income taxes. Meanwhile, half of Amazon workers make less than $28,500 a year – forcing many of them to rely on food stamps, Medicaid and public housing subsidized by U.S. taxpayers.

Despite seeing his wealth increase by $275 million a day over the first 4 months of this year, despite benefiting significantly from corporate welfare, Bezos and Amazon vigorously opposed a modest tax increase in Seattle that would have cost the company an estimated $12 million a year.

This is a perfect example of the kind of corporate greed that is causing so much pain in our country. The very rich get richer, and almost everyone else gets poorer. Our job is to stand up, fight back and demand that government represent all of us, not just the wealthy few.

NowThis Politics

California people! Tomorrow is the state primary! Please go vote! Because even when our elected representatives are taking action –trying to get first-hand information, like Sen. Merkley here — the truth is not always readily available. There is a very hard road ahead of us. We need good leaders.

Our future is worth some googling. Tonight’s the night! #informyourselves

true then, true now.
From the article: “There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections.
If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
