Help my brother and hero +Justin Henderson stop worrying about Google+ being taken away from us. 
 
So, there have been rumors flying around that Google may be getting ready to dismantle Google+...  If you love G+ as much as I do, and you don't want to see it go, please reshare this post and spread the message!   #savegoogleplus   #keepgoogleplus   #googlepluslove   #googleplus   http://tech.co/google-plus-shutting-down-2015-03

Bill Murray is my favorite actor.  It's good to know that he has great political views as well.

These startling images show the tension and fear that is an everyday reality for people caught up in the violence of the West Bank

I know personally the challenges they face each day, the limited opportunities afforded them, people can say they make decisions, but when it's life or death, there's no cognitive decision to be made, "inner cities" have become nothing more than soldier and prison farms, school books are outdated, teachers don't care, nor do they expect anything of these kids, helplessness is indoctrinated by the education system, hopelessness is their normal reality, generation, after generation working hard and trying to escape so their kids won't have to deal with it, I was lucky, I joined the military to get out, being white, I had options they were not afforded, what can we expect from individuals who generation after generation face systemic, societal injustice on a daily basis? First we need to acknowledge the problem, fully explore it, and forge new paths to follow.

I read this article in full...  Google+ may be alive and well, but the article doesn't say anything about G+ not being dismantled and split up into new products.  Basically, G+ as we know it is going to change, and those changes have already started.  For example, people no longer need a G+ account to access YouTube, and our G+ accounts are no longer integrated with YouTube.  Personally, I'm not really 'feeling' the direction that the G+ management team is taking us.  I really worry that my favorite social network is going to get stuck in a corner all by itself where it will run the risk of becoming obsolete.  In sum, I'm just saying that Google should be doing more to promote G+, not less.

There are four forms of government:

Anarchy (rule by no one,) (Examples of this are called Failed States)
Dictatorship or Monarchy (rule by one person,) 
Oligarchy (rule by a few persons, like we currently have here,) We call it a Republic, a Constitutional Monarchy, a Confederation or a Federation. 
Sortition is a sub-class of oligarchy in that representatives are selected at random from the general population and forced to serve for a single term. 
Democracy (rule by the majority, aka "tyranny of the masses") We call this doing things by Plebiscite. It quickly becomes unwieldy unless you have an intelligent and educated populace (not on this planet.)

By just trying to figure stuff out like everybody else, I have come to the unavoidable conclusion that this is class war and make no mistake.
Introduction
You might find some material in my posts that you can use in your daily struggle to free the working class from the fear, ignorance and slavery under which we have been trying to survive for so long.  If my ideas are of any use to you I hope you will spread them to others. 

This profile was updated on July 10, 2015.  The photo is from July 2, 2015. My beliefs have evolved since I began posting on social media in the summer of 2012. If you are looking for consistency, you are probably in the wrong place here. I think we need to be flexible in our understanding of how our world works and when I circle somebody it is because I can learn something from that person. Learning means adjusting our beliefs.

One thing never changes with me. I think the only life worth living is in service to the working class. I am not on Google+ looking for friends but the people I have included in my circle of working class heroes have become my friends and family.

You will notice that less than ten percent of the people who have circled me get admitted into the circle of working class heroes.

In order to be a hero of the working class it is important to remember we are citizens of the world and It is our responsibility to make sure all the children of every nationality inherit a clean, safe and peaceful world from us.

Following that thought, I believe it is important to realize there is an alternative to toxic capitalism that is destroying our world. I want you to take a look at a wonderful little book which is FREE to download from the blog page of +Brian Rush. The title is "Reclaiming Socialism" and it's less than 50 pages long. It is a must-read for every rational adult.

As you'll notice, my stream is used in the service of working class politics.  My rules are pretty simple.  If you have a desperate need to label people you will be frustrated here. This is an exchange of ideas to build a progressive movement, not a forum for self-absorbed individuals to trot out all their credentials and judge the methods and priorities of other progressives.

It is my habit to process huge numbers of posts every day and share the ones I think would be helpful to build a grass roots movement. I expect everyone to be an adult and check the authenticity of these posts. Heroes of the working class correct me all the time if I make a mistake. I am not interested in writing Sacred Scripture here. This is social media and I do not always check out every single post. Let's take responsibility for our own conclusions.

I do not engage trolls, libertarians or any other neocon vermin. If you get your jingles out of insulting others or getting an angry reaction, don't bother to try to infest my stream. I block about 60 trolls a day and I am pretty fast at it 


People who only want some stimulating banter would be better served by Facebook or one of the other predatory sites.


This is class war and make no mistake about it.

Some rough talk goes with the progressive movement. I am also outraged at the behavior of neocons, disgusted by the unbridled selfishness of libertarians and frustrated by the frightened majority which appears to be paralyzed by the influence of the presstituted mass media. However I'm asking you to try to keep it a little bit clean for the gentle people who visit my streams hoping to find some help.

I have been quite remiss myself with regard to careful posting recently and resolve to clean up my language (a little) and to avoid posting when I am sleep deprived. I have found that posting in a non-optimal state requires me to apologize to others the next day and that is counter-productive to my purposes here on Google+.

It is my policy to separate any and all religious beliefs from politics.  There is no place for religious dogma in government. My posts do, however deal with morality that is universal to all belief systems.

I will mute people who make fun of my religious friends.
However, since I consider any form of evangelizing a precursor to colonial invasion, for me religious talk has no place in a progressive stream. That warning  includes my atheist friends who can be just as annoying as any evangelist by trying to convince (themselves and) others that their way of seeing the universe is the only one. A person's religion is private and I expect my religious pals to STFU about their meditation habits and dogmas on my streams.  That is what your own streams are for. 

Jokes about fundamentalism and other extreme expressions of organized religion are hugely entertaining and have an educational place on my streams. What I do not tolerate are hurtful remarks based on the assumption that if someone recognizes a higher power or subscribes to spiritual hypotheses which can be reflected in their posts, that they are fair game for ridicule. 

My working hypothesis is that we are all interconnected and my happiness is dependent on yours.  We are citizens of the world and masters of nobody and no thing. We are caretakers of this planet and have a responsibility to future generations to leave our planet more beautiful than we have found it.

Special note to whatever NSA loser has been assigned to me and my friends here on Google+: if you have been chosen to follow my posts, know that you must be at the bottom of the food chain and are not likely to advance. You may as well join us because you are just being used. It is my sincere hope you realize you are on the wrong side of history.


Also, I anthropomorphize companion animals. Deal with it.
