The Mind Financing The Future

"When powerful people use their advantage to engage in new involuntary transfers of wealth safety or freedom from those too weak to defend themselves. The winners are almost always forced to create an idealism as a cover for their siphoning in simpler terms. These idealisms are actually cover stories or bespoke fig leaves which almost exactly fit. The extraction are taking that they are tailored mask once. This is understood. We realized that to test this theory. Each wave of idealism would have to be matched to a highly specific effective confession for an injustice that pervaded the era in which it was found. This concept of idealism as disguising theft is of course an upsetting cognitive shift get is therefore naturally initially difficult to come to see the waves of idealism that characterized each era that we have lived through not as the best of our aspirations for a better world but rather as the photographic negative of the greed of our own ruling classes for example. The idealism of United States competitiveness was everywhere in the nineteen eighties and early to mid Nineteen Ninety S. At that time it seemed to be about the need for all Americans to pull together and get back into fighting shape as a country looking below the surface however it was not really about the need of managers owners and workers to pull together through shared austerity to reinvigorate American industry. Rather it was a false idealism. That instructed organized American Labor to give up hard won gains that were then not matched by comparable sacrifices from the other groups. Once the United States Labor had been sufficiently humbled in attenuated in its power by the Mid Nineteen Ninety S. The drumbeat of patriotic competitiveness gave way to the post National Davos idealism of a world without borders singing the praises of Financial Inclusion Trade Immigration and philanthropy with the Maudlin sediments of nine hundred eighty five. We are the world as its anthem. The purpose of the Post National Movement was not to include those overseas but instead to allow the wealthy of the industrialized world to break the bonds with their fellow citizens of the working class and to access cheaper labor. Pools abroad using far-flung supply chance likewise the idealism of so-called constructive engagement with governments like communist China's would be seen through this lens as the rationalization for ignoring issues of human rights and strategic risk in such a way as to benefit economically in the short-term selling out American interests in the long-term meanwhile back home in the states the techno Utopian perspective that arose dominate. The Bay area of California held. That information just wants to be free and that now. Transparency is king because privacy is dead perversely as you would expect in this theory. This hippie dippy sounding digital vision is exactly what ushered in the surveillance economy as the platforms became not windows but half silvered mirror through which the social media barons learned every intimate detail about their users. These startups turn techno behemoths. Turned the most intimate personal details of our private lives into their proprietary business. Data which was as far from free or transparent as one could possibly imagine the idealism of gender and identity to fits the exact pattern second wave feminism seemed to be about recognizing the intrinsic worth of women in the workforce but it may also be seen as an employer dream to push out the labor supply curve in such a way as to make the previous single breadwinner household require a second income just to keep pace the politics of identity which caught fire in the wake of the twenty ten. Colorado Senate upset are explained largely by economists. Pm Alana's theory. That identity is the cheapest substitute for the Labor Voting Block which demanded far more significant economic concessions. More bizarrely the strange media ritual of pointing the finger of Islamaphobia at anyone who dares ask about a mass murderer in which the killer triumphantly shouts of the hawk. Bar Emits. Bloody and sadistic mayhem may well be about protecting transfer. Payments from oil-rich monarchies while the official admonition to see the Niqab hit job burqa and clitoridectomy predominantly ethnic differences or symbols of female. Liberation is so absurd to go along way towards establishing the need for some theory. Is this to fill the space. The left-leaning idealism of making housing affordable for all that too many bad loans inflated the housing bubble while the right-leaning Ayn Rand Ian Idealism of self regulating markets practiced by Alan Greenspan allowed the banks to privatize gains while socializing the risks losses. The giving pledge to May well be an attempt to keep governments from clawing back unpaid taxes from carefully sheltered fortunes or establishing wealth and asset taxes in a period of radical inequality. In this sense it can be seen as something of a bargain if I promise to screw over my own children for charity. I hope that you will leave me alone and unquestioned to enjoy my vast and carefully sheltered wealth while I'm alive and as we have just seen with the Biden endorsements from Speaker Nancy Pelosi Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and former Senator Hillary Clinton. The metoo movement appears to be less about sexual assault and more about adding a tool for extra-judicial vigilantism which can be wielded selectively or kept sheath according to taste suffice it to say that. Hashtag believe all women has now given way to hash tag believe convenient women so you may ask. Why bring this up now? Well in my opinion what we need now is someone who is not part of any of the official idealisms. Of course that would have sounded quite weird in isolation if I had simply said that we need an anti Utopian to lead us. Wouldn't we want someone envision a dreamer doer hybrid two point the way? No we want someone who is not signed on for any of these horrible anti patriotic charades from either party. Someone who never believed in free trade free markets nationalism housing for all deregulation competitiveness etcetera etcetera. We need someone who is not closed with Jeffrey Epstein who does not possess significant financial relationships abroad.

Did bring it up. And let's see representative. Jim himes also super delegates. Says we're way way way past the day where party leaders can determine how come here but I think there's a vibrant conversation about whether there's anything that can be done that's a heavy. That's that's a has very heavy thick by whether there's anything that can be done that's how you talk about hurricanes viruses. Is there as it can be done come on? Let's have a vibrant conversation vibrant conversation about what it means to live in a democracy about that. We have that Representative Times characterizes a republic. Exactly where we're going to get to that up. So who are you are off from that? But yes Representative Steve Cohen of Tennessee. Said if you could get to a nomination of pick sherrod Brown. That would be wonderful out running but running. But that's more like a novel. Maybe a novel official novel in which he is running. Donald Trump's presidency is like a horror story. So if you have a horror story you might as well have a novel. Why don't we have a romance at this point? Honestly Sharon Brown is not running. Yeah he's not running and I've got to interject here. You guys know who that is specially listeners from any country you guys remember who? Sherrod Brown is you. Let her brother.

We're being terribly unfair to The labor force within our Indian casinos and apparently we don't have the means or the ability to Negotiate things with our our employees properly so They a court case came down and said that No the United States Labor Board actually has authority on Indian reservations. And we're like hold up. No and it was voted against this bill. This amendment was to bring some much needed authority back to our our tribal people and Sherrod Brown. Put it against it now. By the way who voted in favor of leaving the Labor in charge the vote came down. Fifty five yeas to forty one nays. That's how close it was here. Some names one in particular. I WANNA slap a note.

"I wanna talk jobs for just a moment and who better to talk jobs with then Jean Scalia who is the United States secretary of labor Mister secretary to pleasure to have you back on large great to talk to you again how are you I'm doing very well done at the end of may want to ask about impeachment for a moment but let's stick with job for now because obviously impeachment sort of the watch word of the day with the Democrats deciding to take their entire party over a cliff by my estimation but the numbers that came out last Friday work absolutely stunning and they really surprised the economist the economist for predicting maybe hundred eighty hundred ninety thousand jobs instead we get two hundred and sixty six thousand new jobs and I guess in the same month that Canada dropped about seventy thousand jobs is there any way to explain why we're seeing such amazing success well you know sure there is it's the president's policies of tab tax cuts and reducing regulatory burdens and larger right the pundits were saying a hundred eighty thousand hundred ninety thousand jobs created in November that's a very good number but we just blew past that with two hundred and sixty six thousand new jobs in the November alone it's a terrific number but it is consistent with the trend we've been saying really since the time that the president trump took office eat you you mentioned Canada you're right I mean they took a big hit they lost seventy one thousand jobs in the west that would be like you're losing six hundred thousand jobs or more and the unemployment there went up to five point nine percent yeah we're three point five percent it's a fifty year low people forget just how extraordinary that is not think what you mention about Canada is a reminder how much better we're doing under this president's policies in the U. S. well and in fact in fact and I'm not and I'm not the expert on this but as I understand it we are now at a lower tax situation the Kennedy is so perhaps this is companies in a country right next door saying well you know maybe we need to move to the United States or a is a possible that it's that simple that when when we'll see an attractive environment even individuals they tend to flock to the attractive environment away from the other I'm not saying those seventy one thousand jobs necessarily were companies moving but but people are finding it more attractive to expand at a place like the United States and not as much expansion and neighboring country that has higher taxes well I think that said to a very good description of how our worldwide economy functions and yeah I don't I don't pick on any other country in particular I mean you look at the European Union unemployment there is meal six point three percent and wow very very low zero economic growth again compared to a three point five percent unemployment number here and a and a Connie that people just feels booming you know Lars you probably have the same experience when I talk to business people now one of their very biggest concerns in the US is just finding workers it out point it has gotten so high that business is booming and and coming directly scrambling to find more workers into it it's a challenge but but it's a good challenge to be facing I wanted to go there I'm going to the U. S. secretary of labor jeans kalista let's go there ordinarily when the unemployment rate drop so low and wages are going up at the same time that's an incentive for people to come off the sidelines even somebody said I think I'll retire but I'm also good friends who when they went back to work after retiring I said what do you do and they said to the offers were too good I just couldn't pass up the opportunity in on unless you're just simply physically not able to work there are times where people say it's an offer I couldn't refuse and I jump back in why are we not seeing some of the additional millions of Americans who could be working saying gosh it's gotten so attractive now I want to jump back into it and the opportunities are all over the place as you said employers who want to hire right now why is that not happening well let me doors just before I get to that underscore some of them clearly really good additional things are happening one the is when we look at African Americans Hispanics that Asian Americans we're we're looking at the lowest unemployment rates ever since we started tracking unemployment for those populations for adult women the lowest in about seventy years so what we're selling she really spectacular results and you mentioned wages wages are going up and they're going up higher for the lower paid workers in terms of people on the sidelines but you you're right there's there's always what's called the OB labor participation rate that actually is increasing people are coming off the sidelines are a number of growing signs of that that's been not inching up but we should look for more of it up you know what look we we can do even better and and business is now our doing what they can to attract as people off the sidelines well and in fact you help me with the history on the numbers were it what sixty three sixty three and a half percent labor force participation so of working age people dance the percentage that are working another one third of America is not now some of that may be by choice it maybe espouses or staying home to do the very important job of of raising kids and creating a household but what is a what's our historic number haven't we had one point our history Bennett say seventy percent labor force participation is it possible to get back to that we we've been there or just below there in the past the shore is it's a it is possible to get better back there now there are other things going on like that baby boomers hitting retirement age and absent obviously a strong factor but I I do think what we're seeing is it rising wages right now we're seeing we are seeing people coming up the sidelines more we're seeing number of different populations doing extremely well and by the way the other great news we got today of course is the USMC a green and is now is now a deal this was a very historic agreement the president promised when he ran for office did did he would not that you need to get in place to replace nafta and and we we feel bad deal dates are a great win for the president but it's a really great win for our economy to be this agreement could create as many is up five hundred thousand more jobs for the US economy or more than that it was very important president to to have very strong worker protections there too so this is more really good news for the economy coming just a couple business days after the correct jobs report we got Friday while I've got a moment as secretary what's your take on on the fact that the Democrats have decided to move to very quickly with almost nothing behind it to a vote on impeachment and do it before Christmas I just see it as a distraction from the important work that we have to do here that the president has to do but walk dot it's obviously not a thoughtful op op nonpartisan process the way you would want an impeachment proceeding to be it's been about a rush to a preordained conclusion it's really distracting that members of Congress if nobody else attracting member of Kach members of Congress from more important business that we have an aunt thank you so much your time and I I probably won't talk to before then so you and yours please have a wonderful merry Christmas you too have a great Christmas lights thank thank you Sir that is United States labor secretary Jane Scalia you know it may not be these days over the river and through the woods but if you're traveling over the holidays you really should protect your home and valuables with bling security cameras blink X.

"I answer them in writing. I don't know. I answered a lot of questions they gave me questions. I answer them in writing not an obstruction looked. You're being a little was. Okay. Which is typical for you. Being a little wise guy. And when he said little, he meant it seriously. In the meantime, Nancy Pelosi. This is a great clips or the one has she's saying, she's making it sound as if she's not for peach mint. But on the other hand, she's four impeachment. So I'm not for it, but I'm for it. I mean when you really parse the language in this next clip. That's what our cobras woman from San Francisco is implying cut be. I don't think there's anything more divisive. We can do than to impeach a president of the United States. And so you have to handle it with great care has to be about the truth. In fact to take you to whatever decision has to be there. It should by no means be done politically, you shouldn't impeach politically. Or you should not be politically. Okay. Impeachments divisive. But don't worry about throwing them in prison. Come on. People drunk. Yes. I'm afraid that's the problem. I'm really so that McConnell comes out and he's saying he agrees with Nancy Pelosi, and there were three things that he Nancy Pelosi. Wants to. She's got what were the three things we're talking about katie's the fairness act, the fairness act the gun violence act. Yeah. And fairness act paycheck fairness, okay? So Nancy Pelosi said, I'm for these three things these are going to be big democrat issues going forward. We're going to get this done and Mitch McConnell comes out and says, you know, something for the first time in my life, I believe I agree with Nancy Pelosi because she says, I would never before those three items and I'm not gonna ever before those guys cheese. But I mean okay paycheck, fairness. Oh, it sounds. So what especially to the ears of the millennial paycheck for? Yes. Of course, I like that paycheck, fairness. Okay, unpack that went for his kid, you get the details on that. I have the paycheck, fairness. Yeah. It's it's a proposed United States labor law. That would add procedural protections to the equal pay act of nineteen sixty three as part of an effort to address the gender pay gap in the United States. I mean they can't put that one to rest now. And I think we talked about this a couple of weeks ago. AOC is one of the big ones talking about the paycheck, fairness act and all the women that worked for her making like ninety four cents to the dollar for a male. Hypocrite? Okay. Then what was the other one? It was the gun violence prevention that probably just basically gunfire gun violence prevention that boils down to know guns. Right. Okay. What was the other one? The other one was the four the people act, the four th that says we're for the people who is it for the people. Right. It's but what would you look at that one dissect that what is that all the Bill introduced in the United States house of representatives to expand voting rights limit partisan gerrymandering, strengthen ethics rules and limit the influence of private donor, money, and politics cry Doda? We don't want any private Todo money, politics. No can't have all as if that only happens on the Republican side. That's pretty much how the Democrats are. Maintain their power base. I'm looking at, you know broadcasting from Chicago this morning. I'm looking at this, this governor that they haven't in Illinois, and I, I don't know much about him. I was reading the Chicago papers yesterday. And I asked him I said this, first of all this guy is he's. Somebody needs to get a hold of this guy say, listen governor, you need to lose about one hundred and forty pounds. He's grossly obese. And so I'm thinking know he's not the most attractive candidate and I'm thinking how did this guy seriously this day and age, you know, part of it is the appearance, I guess. And. Well, what about Trump? What about his appearance? Well, first of all, he's been a long standing TV personality. So once impression of Trump is based on decades of looking at it, right. Yeah. So, so you look at him over the decades, not the way he looks now, which is quite, quite, frankly, kind of cut a cartoon like he's like a character of himself, like a meme. Yeah. I mean you know, that's it. And I think that's the way he wants to be. But this guy in Illinois, this guy is just he's, he's very unattractive. It's uncomfortable. Look at him because a camera puts puts weight on you in addition to the weight, you're already carry right? So there's that thinking how seriously how did he get elected? And somebody told me well, he's like a billionaire. Oh, he's a billionaire. Okay. I get it. So he bought his way into office. So Nancy Pelosi makes it sound like this only happens on the Republican side of the out. Yeah. Right. Right. It's this is politics at large. And the guy you're talking about talking about appearances this guy's J b. Pritzker Pritzker and Pritzker. We're talking about appearances here. He's only fifty four Donald Trump's Seventy-three. I didn't know he's only fifty four. He's only fifty four is a guy who's got to get it. I'm serious. I as politics suck at my opinion, but this guy, I'm concerned about his health. He needs to get that part of his life together, you're just saying it. So he can spend more time with his family brand, Jerry, I was going to get to one of the thing here before we go to break. The mind is a terrible thing to waste going all sorts of different directions here. So when you look at okay, then you look at the craziness in terms of politics, we'll get into this in the next segment. I can't believe that we have account afford appeals court that has ruled prisoners have the legal right. To possess, small amounts of marijuana, quote, as long as they don't inhale.

"Really starts with the Taft Hartley act that was passed in one thousand nine hundred forty seven now what did that do? It puts significant restrictions on unions. Many of those restrictions are still in existence. But the most damaging thing that tapped hardly did was opened the door to right to work laws now right to work laws prohibit employers from only hiring union employees. I think that now exists in twenty seven states around the country now while many have heard of the Taft Hartley act, and how this had a severe impact on the United States labor. Movement. What you may not have heard about was the incredibly bad timing of that law. What was happening in? This is right after the war. There was an effort underway to unionize the south. It was called operation Dixie the labor unions were going into territory that had previously not accepted unions. And we're trying to do something about it. You had a huge textile industry operating in the south and they were non unionized. Now, what was really bugging the southerners at that point was the concern that black workers would be allowed to join not only joined the unions, but could achieve positions of importance in the unions. There was one publication at the time that ran a story under the article, shall we be ruled by whites or blacks, this gives you an idea of what was happening down south operation Dixie failed it failed because of Taft Hartley it failed because. Because of the realities of the south and the southern textile industry remained Un-union is now that was a big blow to the labor union and many trace the ultimate decline to that circumstance. Why because once one region of the south discovered that they could get away with that unionizing every other region started looking at them and saying, well, wait a second. Why are we putting up with this? If the south doesn't have to then along comes the seventies and the eighties. You've got high inflation in the seventies. You've got the chairman of the Federal Reserve pursuing a course a very aggressive interest rates, and this was making things much more difficult for business, particularly if you were an export or the dollar the value goes up tougher to sell your products overseas that had a huge impact on America's manufacturing sector. What sector had the most union employees? Well, of course, the manufacturing sector so that caused unemployment to skyrocket. I think at one point in the early eighties like twenty one point two percent of blue collar workers in America were involuntarily, laid off they had lost their jobs that creates a difficult situation. So what happens now after they've lost their jobs workers become interested to get back to work the bottom line solution. If you want to do away with income inequality in this country, you must bring back the private sector unions. We continue with the reconquer show right after this one a rational.

"Some we're talking about Representative Hank Johnson from Georgia trying to compare the president of the United States to Adolf Hitler. And the times in which we live to say, for instance, great depression, or nineteen twenty nine stock market crash era. Germany, well fact of the matter is the times in which we live are nothing like that especially economic and especially with regard to the United States Labor Department bureau of labor statistics this week today. As a matter of fact, saying that this economy added an impressive three hundred twelve thousand jobs in December. And they're that growth folks, it looks like it's gonna continue three hundred twelve thousand jobs, historically, low unemployment three point nine percent and the total number of Americans working. One hundred fifty six million nine hundred forty five thousand folks that's up that's up in two years. Four point eight million people labor participation rate. Well, under Mr. Trump, it's reaching record numbers as you can hear. So what's the comparison to nineteen twenty nine Germany and this? I don't think there is a comparison this gentleman got caught in making comparisons to Adolf Hitler on the part of Donald Trump and ended up having to walk those comments back even after he tried to double down on them. And then changing his explanation saying that he was trying to draw comparisons, economically speaking to the times that Germany faced and the freedoms that they eventually lost. How does that comport with what's going on today? I'm not gonna make argument forum. Let's just say it that way eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five back to the phone lines. We go let's say Hello to KC. And Saint Clair shores wants to talk about related to Labe. Casey. Thanks for calling. Good evening.

I wanted to kind of do a follow up. And and you know, it's not that they have to agree. But I will say I did you know, they were very apologetic. Maybe they heard you on the John McCullough show, or you know, I wrote a letter to the editor. But the thing I was going to say, I told her I said, you know, I know you guys really want to teach several, but I said you really need to talk to that Representative. So I would encourage everyone out there to call your Representative. And you know, I think he did, you know, she it'd be great.
