Has the Social Distortion Afflicting America Become to Advanced to Save The Country From It
I recorded this in November, watching what has taken place since its recording, I find the clip included (featuring Chris Hedges) as prophetic and deeply troubling. When Lawrence Summers, whom Adam Tooze in his book Crashed suggested had learned from his previous Neoliberal mistakes; came out against $2,000 checks because he feared such a thing would “overheat the economy”, a phrase unfamiliar to those of us living in the actual economy – I knew the past was prophetic and Joe Biden would play the role Chris Hedges outlined in the second of the two clips I included from the 2018 podcast interview I clipped them from (the podcast title is FOR THE WORLD, the interview is stunningly relevant today considering it was recorded in 2018). More, this segment, which serves more as an introduction to the rest of the other segments, lays out a fear, that is built upon in 2020.0B.01, which I continue to have till this very day.

This Fear I Have
. . . .The Shadows Keep Running Across My Mind
I found the beginning to the Amanpour and Company segment included at the podcasts start, shocking. “As the rest of the world waits for a formal transition to begin. . .” a statement uttered on November 11, 2020; my mind was jettisoned back to the 1990s where this statement would have been crooned by Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather or Peter Jennings in a segment covering the fits and starts of an immature or deteriorating political system in either South America, after a United States Coup or the former Soviet Republics after a Bankers coup. I had recorded this segment several times before believing it accurately reflected my thinking process behind what I keep calling “the shadows running across my mind”; having planned on publishing the segment during Thanksgiving, the addition of Masha Gessen’s interview confirmed my suspicion that time was needed to perfect its content. To the reader this is likely unimportant, but to me timing is everything, as I think Americans will soon see, we are in a time when presence is the key to overcoming the problems presented, those refusing to accept the way things are and how they become that way, will make turmoil, fragmentation and ultimately destructive tendency the norm; thus pushing America into a deep spiritual and cultural depression which may pull the nation apart permanently. Though this is a broader picture, as you will hear in the following segment, I have other more pressing concerns for today.

The Fourth and Fifth Evils in American Society
Turning to Dr. King’s Three Evils of Society speech, I thought about a fourth and fifth evil which should be explored and detailed. These Evils, might be more readily called maladies, have been part of America for its entire existence, so they won’t be alien or new to anyone who has had the mind to look deeply at American History for more than 5 years, though even a 5 year cursory look at American History, that being 2015-2020 would probably uncover these maladies also. Birtherism tops that list. But I digress, Dr. King’s Three Evils of Society was an introduction to what he saw as a shifting mission for SCLC, four months prior to delivering that speech he spoke about the original motto for his organization, “To Save the Soul of America” which says a lot about a man whom was to be the most hated person throughout the country because of the speech he used to explain that point. I marvel at his sacrifices during those years, I admire his courage and his honor; for this reason I offer this segment to anyone who cares about this country as much as he did.

Voting,
A Multi-Dimensional Act
Voting, we are told, is a one-dimensional act. Walk into a booth, draw a level, or push a computerized button and walk away; but that is not what Voting actually is; there is a reason why people keep referring to an informed electorate, because without information, particularly truthful information, voting becomes an act without meaning. Just selecting ones favorite party or voting against another, has as much importance as picking a favorite sports team though the consequences in voting for one of the two corporate parties are far graver than selecting a sports team. In this segment I attempt to explain the many layers to voting, and why activists need to spend more time on explaining the connection between activism, voting and movement building.
