Chris Hedges June 8, 2015 Town Hall Seattle - YouTube
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!

W. Keith Campbell: The Narcissism Epidemic - YouTube
Social Media = an instant in ones life. not ones life. but this disclosure isn't written in there. under pictures, videos, tweets. + Environment of status symbols, status anxiety, debt fueled (zombie) consumerism. Fast Fashion. Throwaway society. At large not being sustainable. Status quo. Living in the now. Binge Drinking. Keeping up with the John's. Millennials - everyone gets a trophy, even for participation. ... this environment creates a need to display being happy and successful and having everything in life. [...] abundance of digital gossip. whether its whatsapp/sms in own circle at large and in the tabloid [...] 'Narcissism predicts leaders, but not whether they are good or bad.' [Could even argue they dont care abt their eulogy, see David Brooks book Character] [ & rising incivility in politics and lack of trust ] // W. Keith Campbell: The Roots of Narcissism - youtu.be/HXbeKKhQXKA - From find meaning in self (actualization) 2 self-expression & display, praise work

Wir wollen Euch scheitern sehen!: Wie die Häme unser Land zerfrisst: Amazon.de: Alexander Görlach: Bücher
„Wir wollen euch scheitern sehen – Wie Häme unser Land zerfrisst“ von Chefredakteur Alexander Görlach: Wer als Prominenter öffentlich in Ungnade gefallen ist, der hat von der Gesellschaft nichts mehr zu erwarten. Deutschlands Bürger spielen sich als Richter auf und treten gerne noch mal nach, sobald ihre Vorbilder zu Fall gebracht wurden. Alexander Görlach zeigt, wie das Anprangern zum Normalzustand werden konnte, und ergründet die Ursachen deutscher Häme. In einer solchen Gesellschaft wird sich niemand mehr engagieren wollen. [ // kalte harsche gesellschaft (in einer kalten harschen welt) - jeder fuer sich // envy in a times of social status anxiety, casting shows, selbstdarstellung via yt, instagram, fb and co ... seeing a snapshot of other peoples life's, taking it in as a whole. << lack cognition through lack of education and transparency, honesty, vulnerability ]

Occupy Central’s polite protesters: The Hong Kong demonstrators are disciplined, organized, and prepared.
The Occupy Central demonstrators are courteous. That’s actually what makes them so dangerous. [...] These aren’t just idealists; these are savvy political operators who understand successful nonviolent resistance. [...] The answers to these questions can be found in the appropriately titled “Manual of Disobedience.” Published online several days before the Occupy Central campaign was set to begin, the document (written in Chinese and English) is part how-to guide and part philosophical mission statement. It details the movement’s tactics, the rules for nonviolent protest, the legal codes that may be violated, and the exact procedure to follow should someone be arrested. It also implores protesters to “avoid physical confrontation, but also to avoid developing hatred in [their] heart,” and explains that the protests must be a model of the values that they are striving to see in their society, namely “equality, tolerance, love, and care.” [...] Book - Blueprint for Revolution.

Tesla Opens Up Patents to Promote Electric Vehicles | Re/code
Elon Musk's legacy will not just be Tesla Motors and SpaceX. It will also be this, being concerned about the future, that the velocity of which the electric car spreads to the consumer around the world isn't steep enough in order to make a dent in the world ... in the world's carbon emission reduction / global warming. He puts the common and public good before profits and WallStreet. Knowing and banking on the Tesla Brand and still having the first mover advantage in 5 years. Elon Musk picks his fights really well. Marrying a capitalistic profit motive of a company that was on the brink of failure and the public good/common good of reducing carbon footprint of the world. Establishing, enabling industry standards. Preventing technological incompatibilities and silos. Trying to prevent consumer frustration and friction. This is Win-Win. If Wall Street tanks the Stock this Friday, we should all give up ... on Wall Street already. // http://onforb.es/1mNg7Jw
