LUMPENPROLETARIAT—[Monday, 22 FEB 2021, 04:12 PST] How do we increase equanimity in times of crisis? What is common sense for the working classes in the 21st century?
We strive toward unity, and solidarity.
@LumpenProles, 20:47 PST.
Today, we return to the wisdom of Thomas Paine to return to basics. Common Senseis in the public domain. So, audiobooks are easily available for (re)viewing. We contend, of all the so-called Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine has aged far better than his contemporaries, philosophically speaking.
“Thomas Paine – Common Sense [Full Audiobook]” by Tom, 29 JUN 2020.
Mussolini taught us, if we read between the lines, that fascism is the marriage of state power with corporate power. If so, Mr. Biden and Mr. Zuckerberg are looking quite fascist, are they not?
According to RT, “Joe Biden’s administration is reportedly working directly with Silicon Valley giants to root out ‘misinformation and disinformation’ that hampers US vaccination efforts, indicating hands-on involvement in Big Tech censorship.”
The underlying assumption is that vaccination is the only front, upon which to fight the war against the coronaviruses. We reject this notion.
Why are we so zealous about eradicating “vaccine hesitancy”? Why aren’t we equally zealous about eradicating “exercise hesitancy” or “clean food hesitancy”?
Why aren’t we informing the world about the latest scientific health consensus building around the concepts or insulin sensitivity and insulin resistance? (Cf. Benjamin Bikman, Ph.D., Why We Get Sick) We have learned so much in recent years about insulin resistance, also the mind-gut connection, the gut’s role in our immune systems, and the role of the various microbiomes on the human body, particularly the gut micribiome. It’s shameful to me, that we are pushing drugs onto a nation, which is, by and large, obese and suffering from insulin resistance. Insulin resistance leads to sundry illnesses and conditions, most of which are common comorbidities associated with COVID-19-related deaths.
Even, if we don’t think Dr. Bikman and others are onto something important, it makes no sense why our national COVID-19 response and rhetoric is saying absolutely nothing about fitness, nutrition, or the role of one’s own immune system. Aren’t something like 99% of people, who come in contact with the various coronaviruses able to defeat the virus with their own immune systems? We seem to have far too many unanswered questions around this pandemic issue.
“Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stansfield Talk ‘Judas and the Black Messiah” by Entertainment Weekly, 11 JAN 2021.
The big take-away for us, from this interview, is Daniel Kaluuya saying clearly that this film is the story of William O’Neal, as it is told through the eyes of William O’Neal. This confirms suspicions that this is not the story of Fred Hampton. That story remains to be told in a full-length feature film.
Working class folks have access to the radio airwaves for information. How do we go behind the news, as Doug Henwood might say?
