A Critique of Ecological Economics - Part 2 of 2 Ecological economics is an academic field of study that merges ecology with standard economics. Here I outline its faulty historical vision as well as its errors with respect to value, cost, and capitalism. I also suggest that the field, by rejecting the necessary shift to a new mode of civilization, could be contributing to ecological collapse. Ecological economics is a prominent example of Green Reformism, which I criticized sharply in my previous video. The present video is intended for ecological economists, for students of the subject, and for those who may be attracted by the fields environmental strengths without appreciating its pronounced weaknesses.

Libertarianism vs. Agorism (Part 2) In my six***th major video, I explain and develop the ideas of Samuel E. Konkin III, J. Neil Schulman, Frederic Bastiat, Gustave de Molinari, and others; and integrate and explain connections between libertarian and agoristic ideologies.
Anarchy and Me I hope that no one thinks that I have attacked anarchism per se. Rather, I would say that I am taking exception with the tactics and (what I see as) the mindset of a certain kind of person who self-identifies as an anarchist. Probably the best documentary on Youtube dealing with the Spanish experience of anarchism, warts and all. (This topic either bores everyone to insensibility or ignites extremely vicious debate and flaming. I hope I haven't done either!) ¡acabar con el fascismo!

Don't Drink That Kool-Aid from the dangers of swallowing the Kool-Aid Barack Obama Socialism is an economic and political theory advocating public or common ownership and cooperative management of the means of production and allocation of resources. A socialist society is organized on the basis of relatively equal power-relations, self-management, dispersed decision-making (adhocracy) and a reduction or elimination of hierarchical and bureaucratic forms of administration and governance, the extent of which varies in different types of socialism. This ranges from the establishment of cooperative management structures to the abolition of all hierarchical structures in favor of free association. As an economic system, socialism is the direct allocation of capital goods (means of production) to meet economic demands so that production is oriented toward use and accounting is based on some physical magnitude, such as physical quantities or a direct measure of labour time. Goods and services for consumption are distributed through markets, and distribution of income is based on the principle of individual merit/individual contribution. As a political movement, socialism includes a diverse array of political philosophies, ranging from reformism to revolutionary socialism. Some currents of socialism, often referred to as state socialism, advocate complete nationalisation of the means of production, distribution and exchange as a strategy for implementing socialism; while social ...
Harper Spends 26 Million Taxpayers' Dollars on Attack Ads in Three Months! Are Polls Lying?? RANT! Is this how you win a campaign in Canada now: you buy your way in? With polls showing Stephen Harper's popularity on the rise, with only attack ads to show for it, you have to wonder. Please let me think what you think about this. Has the Canadian public lost all sense and reason, or do well really just want to be ruled by a Republican fist? Something is horribly wrong here..

Harper is Pissing Everyone Off Stephen Harper is pissing off many people, from people who actually follow the news, to women, to minorities, to people within his own party. From what I've heard, if he doesn't get back in as prime minister—and I don't see how he possibly could—his own party wants rid of him! Some people warn me that more people may still be in support of Harper than I realize. But I honestly think, come election day, that the people will have heard enough to want a change. I could be wrong of course, but I really don't think so Lol. *** Harper Did (a good site to share around) *** Harper Changes Mind on Corporate Tax Cuts Surprise 'vote mobs' shaking up election campaign montreal.ctv.ca Guergis rips Harper for smearing her name Helena Guergis running with redemption on her mind Carson brought former money-launderer to 24 Sus*** party Seeking ethnic dress for photo op 'unacceptable,' Tories tell riding Not our job to restrict rally access: RCMP www.cbc.ca Harper apologizes over rally screening www.cbc.ca About that Conservative ballot-box grab in Guelph Elections Canada validates contested student ballot in Guelph Tories manipulated G8 fund: auditor Ex-adviser told PMO about his fraud conviction: lawyer www.ctv.ca Harper asks RCMP to probe former advisor's attempts to land First Nations water ...
The Communist Manifesto Section 3 [3/3] The third section, "Socialist and Communist Literature," distinguishes communism from other socialist doctrines prevalent at the time the Manifesto was written. While the degree of reproach of Marx and Engels toward rival perspectives varies, all are eventually dismissed for advocating reformism and failing to recognize the preeminent role of the working class. Partly because of Marx's critique, most of the specific ideologies described in this section became politically negligible by the end of the nine***th century.

Stephen Harper on Globalism Harper's own words about his passion for Globalism, the need for a "global governance" and his desire to shed our nation of its sovereignty. Do you think that I'm joking or exaggerating? Sorry to say, I'm not! These are in his own words. Check out the sources below to see for yourself (and please do!) Harper led his fellow Reformists to join the Conservative party of Canada. But they didn't just join, they took over the party. The true Conservatives are repressed within the party. Harper has been very busy as an active Far-Right leader, running this country like a dictatorship. Hell, he's even calling the Canadian Government the Harper Government. He and his supporters are now ruling over this country, with a minority government no less! Can you understand what "Reformism" means? Take a guess.

David Kareyan - EUKHARISTIA 450 In the video film Eukharistia 450 is a performance that presents an archaic recollection of the social agreement as a dream of a lonely man. The desire for freedom and independence turns into catastrophe when it does not end in social agreement. Communication ceremonies, reminding of the necessity of tolerance, are trying to stop the conflicts, which seem endless. Is there a way out of that vicious circle, can art influence reality, or we are doomed to submit to that game, by only finding explanations and excuses. In this video film I proceed from the conviction that the reformations taking place in art influence the society. And if we manage to sublimate the subconscious urges subject to frustration, we avoid the danger of crash / depression, suicide, terrorism /. Such reformism is nothing but a sign of culture. The video film Eukharistia 450 shows the counteraction of the physical and the mental in the process of an individuals formation.

A Critique of Green Reformism Green Reformism is a widespread response to the current ecological crisis. The term refers to the support for improved technology and resource efficiency combined with a commitment to the logic of capitalism. The video explains why this approach cannot work and why it represents a serious failure of intellectual leadership. (To obtain the script for this video, email the author: frank_rotering@.

We fight for Revolution, Not reformism. Capitalism cannot become reformed to socialism. It should be overthrown by mass workers action. There is no parliamentary road to acheive real change.

Stephen Harper - The Reformist Prime Minister of Canada A bit of a rant on Stephen Harper. He is not a Conservative, he's a Reformist. He's a corporate functionary, seeking to privatize hospitals, the education system, Canada Post, everything. If he manages to do this, what say will the people have in anything? This is Fascism, plain and simple. We need to get him the hell out of office! Harper has suppressed the Conservatives in the PC party, so they don't even have a voice. They obviously won't break away while 'they' are in power, but I think they will when the time comes.

Hassan Abbasi slams Khatami's forged degree and Rafsanjani حسن عباسی In this video the controversial Hassan Abbasi addresses Ali Kordan and "Kordanism" (faking degrees), after a portion of Iranian students at Isfahan University ridiculed Ali Kordan, a conservative politician who faked his degree and became a powerful figurehead in Iran was removed by the conservative party afterwards. Hassan Abbasi argues the Reformist movement is inherently corrupt. Abbasi takes shots at President Mohammad Khatami, who after his return to Iran from Germany titled himself Doctor with every signature for over a decade. Hassan Abbasi also talks about trafficking of Iranian girls to Dubai as *** slaves which was revealed during the Mohammad Khatami administration, evidence of negligence and even that the reformist movement was involved in trafficking surfaced. Hassan Abbasi in an older video addresses this, in addition to Rafsanjani, who financed the unrest in Iran after the loss of Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who manipulated frustrated socially restricted youth that the vote was rigged, this claim held no evidence and the alleged phone call Mousavi had received from the Interior Ministry turned out to be false, no one called. Iranian upper class have been in the news for the last two months, for provoking anarchy and unrest after their politicians claimed the vote was rigged, although the presidential candidates have retracted that statement, their followers who consist of people who were wealthy and well-off during the Shah and today live in rich areas ...
