Thom Hartmann: Corporate America has Messed with the Wrong People



Professor Richard Wolff, New School University NYC, joins Thom Hartmann. Facing salary cuts, Port workers on the East Coast are threatening a strike that could impact the economy to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. We'll talk about why THIS strike in particular is so important - and how - if it's successful - it could bring about a future Leisure Society for working Americans.

1. And contrary to expectations: It's a strange and uncivilized mixture

 

Thanks for the interpretation of the facts. It could be that most of the world societies moved along the correct path, but two events did NOT:

1-the economic system was insufficient for popultion expansion, needs and wants of true civilization

2-and the appearance of a weird mentality, maybe a temporary human subspecies? whose goal is to get 'something' even though IT would self-defeat in the process, or something like that.

In the example of pitting works against each other you can see that clearly, 'because it has nothing to do with work productivity per se, so you must wonder what the goal really is behind the situation. And you can speculate at length on that one, like humans are being mined, or all kinds of science fiction scenarios that have as basis the same observation. The developing of a ruthless futuristic society whose pleasure is now rewired to cause problems only, and in increasing degrees as the prize achieved. But it can be undone, if you look around you see people are more normal now, reasoning, maybe improving in humans feelings, etc.

The most practical solution starts with changing the economic system that erradicates the faulty parts of the currents. If not done soon the drift will be in the direction of a parallel economy. I think so.

5. Well, we tried everything: protest marches against the war....

OWS et al...

Nothing worked.

The ruling class TV puppets laughed at us all the way.


(And not just on TV).
