Stronger Than Ever



Chris Hedges’ exhortation on the imminent collapse of globalized capitalism, and the hopeful new dawn of socialism, misreads the facts that show capitalism is stronger than ever. Capitalism is not collapsing. It has morphed into institutionalized gangsterism.
–Poet Garcia Madero, Visceral Realist

Hopeless

In his op-ed on the hopelessness of electing another Democratic Party Messiah, Shamus Cooke reminds us that the bloodletting abroad by the U.S. military continues hemorrhaging the domestic budget for social needs, and that until this draining of our lifeblood from the U.S. Treasury is stopped, American society will continue its steady, horrific decline.

This Changes Nothing

350.org claims to be grassroots, but its annual income exceeds millions, its staff receive six-figure salaries, and — as a Rockefeller project — is very far removed from the true concept of grass roots. The word disingenuous, in regard to this claim, is an immense understatement.

In the parlance of major criminal detection, it would be termed “serious fraud”.

Hostile Takeover

The Wall Street Takeover of Nonprofit Boards is the topic of a study published in the Stanford Social Innovation Review. Of note is that the percentage of people from finance doubled between 1989 and 2014, diluting charitable values and threatening shared governance.

The Keith Jackson Saga

Former San Francisco School Board president, Keith Jackson, in 2014 pleaded guilty to federal charges of racketeering and corruption, gun-running, and conspiracy to commit murder for hire. Yesterday, Jackson was additionally hit with four counts of bribery, money-laundering, and grand theft of public money.

In 2007, Jackson -- a consultant hired by New College of California president Martin Hamilton -- threatened former San Francisco Supervisor Harry Britt, when Britt called for a criminal investigation of the New College board of trustees. As editor of the New College independent alumni association website, I immediately phoned the San Francisco District Attorney's office.

Soon after, I published an account of the incident, and sent word to Jackson he was being watched.
