Europa: Den Parteien laufen die Mitglieder weg - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ symptoms ] SPD und CDU haben seit 1990 fast die Hälfte ihrer Mitglieder verloren. Die Erosion der Parteien ist kein deutsches Phänomen, sie findet in ganz Europa statt. Unsere Demokratie ändert sich dadurch grundlegend. [...] Parteimitglieder sind nur noch Randgruppen [...] Personen statt Programme [...] Die Mehrheit der Bürger misstraut den Parteien

Ceased all power and rendered the citizen powerless. This is no capitalistic democracy. This is crony capitalism. Capitalism has no internal constraints. remove external constraints & it will see & use everything (private free market enterprise) as replaceable & commodity w a price (even the planet): the environment, workers health. &! non-violent revolution! // Revolutions are internal affairs w different dynamic. All succesful revolutions are fundamentally non-violent. No revolution is successful until sizable internal protection/security defects (Whistleblower et al) and refuses to fight for the discredited regime/plutocracy/oligarchy/Elite/Super Rich/1%/Corporation/crony capitalism/tax evasion/tax avoidance and joins the revolution. // Living in truth & speaking the truth to power. Pulling people into the streets & discrediting the status quo. Dont pit people against each other. Essay. The power of the powerless // If we do not break it. We & our children have no future!

How The Socialist Surge is Growing - YouTube
via Robert Reich on.fb.me/1Pn6XFK - According to a New York Times investigation reported this morning, just 358 families and the businesses they control have contributed over half the money to the 2016 presidential election so far – mostly to Republicans who have pledged to pare regulations; cut taxes on income, capital gains and inheritances; and shrink Social Security and Medicare. On the other hand, two-thirds of Americans support higher taxes on those earning $1 million or more a year, according to a June New York Times/CBS News poll, and six in 10 favor more government intervention to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor. And according to the Pew Research Center, nearly seven in 10 favor preserving Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are. To an extent we haven’t seen since the Gilded Age of the 1890s, the upcoming election is between a tiny group of super-rich and the rest of us. We must do everything possible to reclaim our democracy.

So you hate the Tories – but what comes next? | John Harris | Comment is free | The Guardian
Tory conference: Cameron's 'assault on poverty' pledge belied by new figures. [...] planned welfare cuts would lead to 200,000 more working households in poverty by 2020. bit.ly/1Nop8vl - The thinktank’s analysis also indicates that the number of all households – both in and out of work – that will be in poverty at the end of the parliament is projected to rise by 700,000 to nearly 4 million. The report will pile further pressure on ministers to rethink how they protect the working poor, following the introduction of controversial plans to cut tax credits in the first budget immediately after the election. //&! bit.ly/1VIjIQ0 - Podcast &!

It’s the British establishment that has a problem with democracy | Seumas Milne | Comment is free | The Guardian
‘Rewarding major donors with seats in parliament and jobs in government is a long-established British tradition.’ [...] But political corruption and the implacable opposition of the spooks and military to progressive change are the traditional forms of anti-democratic politics, in Britain, as elsewhere. For the past generation it has been the corporate embrace, the revolving doors, the privatised contracts, the “free trade” treaties, European Union directives, and the removal of economics from democratic control under the neoliberal rules of the game that have set the boundaries of acceptable politics. [ Jeremy Corbyn is a symptom/backlash to the status quo ] Since the 2008 crash the rejection of that broken economic model and the hollowed-out politics that reflects it has spread across the western world, now including Britain. Which helps explain why Cameron’s Conservatives have turned to the most retrograde measures to bring opposition to heel. //&! bit.ly/1FWK86Y

Jeremy Corbyn wins economists’ backing for anti-austerity policies | Politics | The Guardian
In the letter to which David Blanchflower, a former member of the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee is a signatory, the economists write: “The accusation is widely made that Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters have moved to the extreme left on economic policy. But this is not supported by the candidate’s statements or policies. His opposition to austerity is actually mainstream economics, even backed by the conservative IMF. He aims to boost growth and prosperity.” // UK can't compete with energy rich countries - ie through rebuilding (through subsidies) its industrial and manufacturing sector - it has to add value through expert services, knowledge, digital, research to existing products goods and services that then can be re-sold across the world - high energy cost, expensive transport through lack of infrastructure of the future, and lack of in-pipeline educated mobile youngster, is a structural deficit.
