Dr.Michael Hudson is an example that we have brilliant economists in the USA. Unfortunately all we see on Corporate Media are propaganda economists for the .01% who own the Media. Unfortunately enough impressionable minds are brainwashed by these propaganda economists to believe in some suicidal policy the .01% and their paid media personalities carrying on in the world today. If all those work are paid a livable wage based on CPI of each nation then we can eliminate poverty overnight. There is no need for charity.

It would be interesting if two of the intelligentsia from the left Parenti and Chris Hedges have a debate on Caesar and Cicero. Hedges calls Mark Antony cutting off Cicero's head and showing to a cheering spectators at the coliseum an act by a dictator against free speech whereas Parenti points out that Cicero, a corrupt slaveholder, whose duty was to protect the oligarch that ran Rome at the time was an accomplice to Caesar's murder because Caesar was trying to make the lives of the common people better against the interest of the mob that ran the Senate (sounds like our Congress) at the time.

Made-up currencies only benefit the .01% because it never trickles down. If it ever trickled down to the bottom 90%, as it happens with everything that trickles down to the bottom 90%, such money would be worthless and that's when the hyperinflation would take place. But as of now, one can be assured those at the top will make sure the money would not trickle down.

Professor Wolf finished by stating something like "the other side."  I don't think there is a major other side when it comes to have a society as Wolf Suggests. Most of the .01% are smart and good people who don't mind others having a fair share in the society, except a very few megalomaniacs who like a socially-apartheid society to boost their ego and some ruthless few who cannot empathize with the feelings and needs of others. So the main opposition would come from a sizable group (such as Media Personalities) that make a fat living doing propaganda for above-stated minority of the .01%.

Let's hope global citizens won't judge America by the representation they get from media personalities peddling propaganda for Corporate Media (which is not owned even by Americans anymore but multinational interests-- ruthless and super greedy) but get the news from brave, independent, free-thinking, fair-playing generous Americans with shoe-string budgets filling the vacuum of free speech, required for a capitalist democracy, in blogsphere. If foreigners visited America those who express their independent views on blogsphere are who they will meet and they would understand that's what makes America so great not the representation they get from propagandists they see on multinational corporate owned media. If foreigners meet the real Americans they would only fall in love with them and would never commit  atrocities they commit on innocent Americans they capture as they travel the world trying to do good things just because a few who own the US government and the Media do some real bad things for the benefit of a few.

Bashing the Bully is truly American and that's why some of the Westerns made in Hollywood were so popular worldwide. Unfortunately likes of Al Franken are not found in our Corporate Media anymore, instead we have good-looking, charismatic, well spoken and highly paid media personalities bashing the victims of the society and rooting for the powerful corporate welfare-recipients with the naive, indoctrinated viewers repeating the lies and cheering them.

Mark I wain. I hate to camp people, including myself, to progressive/conservative since lined are blurred now. For example I believe welfare is a cancer that destroys self-respect of people (unless handicapped and cannot work or a single mom whose work is taking care of kids). I especially detest the trillions in welfare to the .01% by our treasury in the form of uncontrolled acquisition of corporate products and services and trillions in money being created by the FED and handing over to the .01% (that hardly trickles down). It is this .01% advertise in our Media making media personalities indirect recipients of welfare. This is possible only because the .01% (and the Media they own) have divided 99.99% to camps and make them fight while the .01% bankrupt the nation by taking welfare and bribing Congress/President/Courts etc to continue this scam.

Although it is a good job, bad thing about this video is Jerry Kroth keeps saying our country, America and we are doing these evil and terrible things etc. making it sound Anti-American. The reality is American people are very good people who don't like taking the lives of others for profits, for power or for any other evil reasons but hardworking, honest, and generous and wish the same on other citizens of the world. However, these good people are not running the USA at this time. Instead it had been taken over by a few ruthless, greedy, power-hungry megalomaniacs who make sure that the US Congress, President, Courts and the Media work only for them and not for the interest of the common working person. Good thing about a democracy is that this can be changed, and thus the same way the USA has changed in the last few centuries, we have to hope that good people will again take over the nation and will keep the USA as the great nation it is.

When right-wing guys say and do evil, ruthless and super greedy things our Media personalities laugh them off saying that they are childish or stupid. Sadly those silly policies have contributed to the torture and death of many innocent people whose only crime were to protest against unjust and at the same time have bankrupted the USA with the transfer of trillions from the tax payer to cronies of right wing leaders through corporate welfare.

Greece gave us Democracy and thus it's befitting that Greece should lead the movement to breakdown the banking cartel that run the world today favoring a select few. Instead this movement should make it their goal to give all who work hard an equal footing to be successful and thus bring true freedom to the world. Let's hope the democracies from the rest of the world would learn from Greece the same way they learned and adopted democracy. Greeks should understand that the whole world (those who are not brainwashed by corporate-owned media) is watching them and keep in mind to make this peaceful, honest and benefit all people, not a select few as all other movements-that begin with good intentions- ultimately end up being. Greece should look to Montdragon Corporation in Basque, Spain to use as an example.

Everyone should take the time to watch Richard Wolf since he is one of the great minds that our Media is trying hard to censor. An uneducated and an illogical population is what those who hold power in this nation (if they were to be unscrupulous) would want because if people begin to question those who rule them then those who rule cannot carry on the scams they are carrying on now (fooling the 99.99%, taking their money and giving to the .01%- who in turn fund political campaigns, with the help of the Mainstream Media they control). Professor Wolf makes economics apply to common sense of people.  Must watch for anyone who wants to understand what’s going on in their society.

It is commendable for Nick Gillespie to interview Nader, yet it was very clear that Gillespie, like most Libertarians, although well-meant, don't care much about facts but have well-indoctrinated opinions and always making arguments to substantiate those arguments. For example he disregards the facts (with no comments) of NIH spending billion in taxpayer money to discover drugs and give then for free to pharmaceutical industry and argues that it is okay for a drug company to charge $1,000 for a drug again disregarding that CEO makes $100 million dollar bonus due to that while bankrupting the nation by charging the consumers both with  un-affordable insurance and cost of drugs whereas those funds could be used to help increase consumer demand for make other items that can help true capitalism.

It is a darn pity that people don't listen to Nader and take action but let the Corporate Media brainwash them to vote against their self-interest.
