Parasites & Idiots: Ignorance, Blind Loyalty and Obedience Can Be A Deadly Combination

Kentucky, USA: coal miners are in danger of contracting black lung disease and many are forced to travel more than 100 miles for proper medical attention. Families have tried escaping from the ever-present coal dust that permeates the area and causes severe respiratory illnesses by moving away, but end up unable to afford homes in […]

Happy New Year! Who Was The Radical MLK? by The Anti-Social Socialist

The world of the corporate executive in the U.S.: a “booming” stock market; “strong” economic growth; “America” (their version) is great again; an inordinate effect on elections – uh, make that selections; companies that destroy the environment while diverting billions of dollars from the working class to the parasitic class (like Chevron, Halliburton, Kinder Morgan, […]

‘Tis the Season To Wage Boycotts!

How many of us have the courage to resist the pressures wealthy executives cruelly aim at our minds like weapons of psychological warfare? Do we dare appear cold, insensitive and selfish by not indulging in fundamentalist consumerism? Do we dare stand up for our (forgotten?) principles and refuse to overindulge in our patriotic duty as […]

My Response To Corporate Democrats

My E-Mail Response To Nancy Pelosi I don’t normally like to share personal information, but I changed that a bit recently with my plea for help, encouraged by my wife, for our sweet disabled cat, Scooter: https://ashiftinconsciousness.wordpress.com/2019/11/11/unconditional-love/ And now I’ve decided to post something else personal, an exchange of e-mails I had with Corporate Democrats […]

No Peace Allowed in Afghanistan

No Peace Allowed in Afghanistan

“According to Die Welt, in the first three months of the year, American servicemen and their allies on the ground killed more civilians than both terrorist and rebel detachments operating in Afghanistan. As it’s been revealed by the UN mission in Afghanistan, the absolute majority of those deceased fell victims of US-coalition air strikes and […]

Manufacturing Dysfunction

I recently saw a video on youtube that I found disturbing. It may seem naive to some people for me to be disturbed that a mentally and emotionally ill person with below average intelligence would put effort into an untruthful attack on someone and post it on social media, but then again, maybe it isn’t […]

Mergers & Acquisitions Or Murders & Executions?

Are we going to allow Bayer and Monsanto to join forces in their war on life? Bayer, corporate supporter of Nazi Germany, who used Jewish slave labor in their factories during WWII and whose parent company invested in a company that manufactured Zyklon B nerve gas? Monsanto, the U.S. company annually voted the world’s most […]

The Necessary (R)evolution Will Not Be Televised

  Capitalism is oppression. It’s oppression delivered through racism, patriarchy, intolerance of “others”, religious zealotry and other tools of dividing us – basically the spreading of hate, greed and fear. It’s neatly wrapped and sprinkled with the sugar (and spice and everything nice) of patriotism, socially acceptable responsibility (working “hard”) and more ignorance & greed, […]

Did The ‘Cold War’ Ever Actually End?

Or have the combatants merely changed? Corporate predators don’t shoot us (usually), but they use more discreet weapons to kill and maim. Many don’t appear to be weapons because we’ve been conditioned not to question the rules of engagement set by these manipulative rulers. Fact: Pesticides and herbicides are actually biological weapons. And we use […]

The Winds Of Destruction Continue

On February 26, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in Janus v. AFSCME, a case that could be detrimental to the well being of families throughout the United States (as well as to the well being of social justice and democracy). It could adversely affect the ability of public sector workers to […]
