About Status Coup

There’s a notion that’s been perpetrated by a web of powerful, well-connected elites that America is a land of unlimited possibility and opportunity for all. This American dream has been branded and stuffed down your throats via television, pop-culture, and our nation’s news platforms. The problem: it’s actually is a dream, one intentionally kept far from realization by a tight-knit cabal of lobbyists, politicians, bankers, corporations and their allies in corporate media.

Since the deregulation of the media industry in the 1990’s, corporatization of America’s fourth estate has left the majority of real people’s struggles, environmental genocide, economic devastation, police brutality, and widespread corruption off the airwaves and leading newspaper front pages.

Why?

Follow the money! Ownership of our media has been seized by a mix of multi-billion dollar corporate conglomerates or wealthy plutocrats. The result: sensationalism, endless faux-controversy, propaganda, and corporate-framed “news” that leaves citizens uninformed, misinformed, and ultimately, inactive as the country’s morph to oligarchy accelerates.

This is why you guys gotta think a little deeper on trump.
Unbelievable level of hypocrisy from former Michigan governor on Trump's "lack a moral compass". I would not want this criminal's endorsement. But it's probably cool with corporate Dems.
The DNC Protests Show the Dynamics of How Black Lives Matter Will Bleed Support … At the protest at the Democratic Convention a glimmer of hope was shined, but a heavy thickness was exposed. An orchestrated campaign has been done to “dis-credit” Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters and organizers who broached THE sacred cow of our 2-party system, ECONOMIC INJUSTICE! As BLM began to embrace “DEFUND the POLICE, a shock wave went through corporate media—both “liberal and right-wing,” and this social media and media blitz intimated things like, “BLM organizers are Marxists!” All complete BS, but a great way to get the black community VERY nervous about any BLM event taking on the aroma of economic revolution. So, at the Protest of the DNC Convention today, 8/20, hundreds showed up to protest the DNC, but the speakers and the BLM protesters seemed unwilling to speak about economic issues, and many of the white protesters joining them were Bernie supporters—ACHING to make that case, because they see the absolute connection between the corporate oligarchy in America, and the prison-industrial complex and the slave labor it provides major corporations. They don’t want to cut off the tumor of the brutal racist police state—they want to heal the cancer that produced it. Economic justice is absolutely critical to the success of BLM. It is not that the black protesters don’t have healthcare issues and that they don’t have friends and family suffering from the most expensive healthcare system in the world in desperate need of Medicare for All. Joe Biden said he would veto Medicare for All and 90% of Democratic voters WANT Medicare for All—90%! So why did the DNC protest today never ever mention that? Black Americans would benefit from Medicare for All in much bigger ways than white America because of the unjust levels of poverty in the black community. If you go through the numbers of deaths from poverty, and deaths from police violence, and consider the percentage of black Americans being 12% (although, you know black Americans die of both poverty and police violence at unjustly higher rates)—what you find is that approximately 213 black Americans die each year due to police violence … while 2,400 die each year from poverty which hits the black community hardest, so both these numbers are vastly low-balled here. So at LEAST TEN TIMES more black Americans are dying from poverty over police violence. Make no mistake the over-policing, brutalization, and war crime type incarceration levels of the black community is a gross travesty. But, if we do not see the corporate oligarchical system that profits obscenely from the status quo, any BLM successes will be very temporal and fleeting. But the point of this article is that the BLM protests are dwindling in numbers … the vast numbers of white, Hispanic, Asian, etc. BLM protesters are no longer inspired. Because for many of them, George Floyd’s brutal murder on TV was the spark that ignited the powder-keg of frustration building inside them because of the ongoing injustice happening to them, their friends, their families, living in an unlivable society where jobs are scarce that can pay a living wage, they are in constant terror of losing healthcare or getting sick without it, they have no savings, they have massive debt … just like people in the Black community (who have it even worse). It’s not that these white, Asian, Hispanic, Native people who showed up for weeks and months for BLM … no longer care … they do! Its just that they are humans, suffering, struggling, at some point they have to SEE “THEMSELVES” IN THIS BLM MOVEMENT … THIS REVOLUTION (at least it could be). Corporate America also got into BLM very FAST, to help steer it away from real change, from economic revolution! So why did the BLM protesters at the DNC avoid touching on these INTERSECTIONAL ISSUES that could spark a REAL REVOLUTION OF VALUES IN THIS COUNTRY? Because they felt the “pressure” of not having any “taint” of the horrible, evil, dastardly, MARXISM that the social media and corporate media branded BLM organizers with. This was done early on. This machine moves with purpose, it plans ahead, it has plans in place long before needed. So are things hopeless? How could we beat such a machine? Empathy and compassion are more powerful than any machine … but if BLM lets the machine HOLD THEIR TONGUE ON ECONOMIC VIOLENCE … the power of the movement will continue to dwindle, and I DO NOT want to see that. If BLM can allow MORE SPACE to speak truth to power to alleviate the vast brutal economic suffering of the black, white, Asian, Hispanic, Native American community—it could be the spark of the INTERSECTIONAL MOVEMENT that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. launched, the Poor People’s March on Washington, bringing poor blacks and poor whites together for common justice. I know there already is a new Poor People’s Movement, but it could become MASSIVE. This will require great courage of the BLM Movement and it will require BLM supporters to support the BLM organizers that have the vision and integrity to speak truth to power … real truth … economic truth about how the corporate masters of our nation feeds on the blood of the imprisoned, the working class, the struggling … and that my friends, includes ALL of us. The prophets of old extolled to us to ‘feel others’ pain’ and be there for them. When BLM first exploded, it was shocking to see the vast numbers of white, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American people who did just that … it was heartbreakingly beautiful … but then those folks continued to suffer in this brutal economy, with no healthcare, college debt (yes the same things brutalizing the black community even more). They were unable to sustain their BLM attendance. What happened to their motivation? If BLM truly becomes an INTERSECTIONAL MOVEMENT …. It will go down in history as the spark that ignited a whole restructuring of our society away from greed and toward humanity … as the intersectional power of the movement draws MILLIONS INTO THE STREETS! Sociological research found that it only takes 4% of a population to take to the streets to create massive change in society. We have a two party duopoly that is crushing us under its boot as it scampers around serving every need of the top 1%. It does not have to be this way. There is a reason that all the major religion’s prophets extolled “compassion and empathy” as the highest of importance. Because it is the formula to the society of our hopes and love and inspirations. -- William Douglas, author of “The Gospel of Science” https://www.amazon.com/Gospel-Science-Mind-blowing-Ancient-Truths/dp/1659206421 THE MAGIC FORMULA FOR SUCCESSFUL REVOLUTION … Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. — Matthew 22:39, KJV The sage does not accumulate (for himself). The more that he expends for others, the more does he possess of his own; the more that he gives to others, the more does he have himself. — Lao Tzu, Tao te Ching Allah loveth those who are kind. — Koran 2:95 … show mercy and compassion every man to his brother; and oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor … — Zecharaih, Hebrew Prophet, Tanakh (The Holy Scriptures); Zechariah 7:9, 7:10 O mankind! We created you … and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that you may despise each other). — The Koran, 49:13 Verses stating in various ways that the wise and joyful are those who serve others, or that we should treat others as we would like to be treated are found in the words or texts of: Buddha; Native Americans; Socrates; Hindu Psalm; Shintoism; Brahmism; British -- EXCERPT FROM “THE GOSPEL OF SCIENCE” Humanist Society; Confucius; Roman Paganism; Sikhism; Plato; Unitarian; Yoruba (Nigerian religion); Zoroastrianism; and perhaps most eloquently by Black Elk of the Oglala Lakota (Souix) Nation: All things are our relatives; what we do to everything, we do to ourselves. All is really One. — Black Elk
