The Right Has Been Pushing “Free-Market” Propaganda in US Public Schools for Over a Century
In their new book, The Big Myth: How American Business Taught Us to Loathe Government and Love the Free Market, Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway recount the astonishing tale of an industry-led effort to feed students and their teachers “correct information” about capitalism and free-market principles.

In the 1920s, private electrical utilities faced a dilemma. They resisted rural electrification as it wasn’t profitable, but they didn’t want the government to step in and provide the service. The solution that the National Electric Light Association (NELA) settled upon was a propaganda effort through the schools. By influencing textbooks and teachers, went the thinking, these titans of lighting hoped to shape the future generations. These 1920s-era young people, having learned in school that government regulation and public ownership were bad, would grow up to cast their votes for officials who felt the same.

The "agitators" and "activists" being folks relating messages of the history of Palestinian demise and oppression, Gaza being nothing but a concentration camp controlled by the Israelis, etc.

In other words: No, you are not crazy They really are banning TikTok to cover for a genocide and regain control of the narrative.

It doesn't help the world at all if this is constantly being swept under the carpet. 

Thing is, this is happening on a global scale... not only to Israel.
Why TikTok being banned in the US is another message needful of being spread, as hardly any western media have it in their news.

Politicians mostly still live in the 20th century, and their press editors, too. OMG

You are saying the Palestinian children are the cause of their maiming? I get that's not what you said, but you cannot hold that blanket view and not hold the children responsible also. Too many people's distinct right and wrong views do not bother to look at the whole of what it means, what it causes. And rarely do they hold to those views when the roles are reversed.

This came out yesterday, from a TED conference in British Columbia last week.

Scott Galloway can be repetitive, arrogant, and annoying, but that doesn't mean he's wrong.  There is a ton of common sense-based reality in this talk.

Opinion Monumental changes to prescription drug prices for seniors are coming

Washington Post. May be paywalled. Here are the main points


1) Drug price negotiation. For the first time in history, Medicare can now negotiate directly with manufacturers.

2) A cap on out-of-pocket spending.

3) Lower prices for insulin.

4) Free vaccines.

5) Inflation penalty for drug manufacturers. A lesser-known but also noteworthy change is that drug companies now have to pay a rebate to Medicare if they increase prices faster than inflation.

6) Extra help for the most vulnerable. The IRA provides an income-based subsidy for Medicare enrollees.

$916,000,000,000
That's how much the U.S. spent on war in 2023.

Well, that's a fucking important point to make! So American ...and so intellectual!

Let me puke right here...

Just like guns aren't used for mass shootings in the US of A (and generally no-where else on this planet).

What the f... are military weapons for, if not war?!

What the f... are personal weapons for, if not killing?!
