Chicano (as an identity) came to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s as Mexican Americans asserted their own ethnic, political, and cultural identity while rejecting and resisting assimilation into systematic racism and stereotypes, colonialism, and the American plutocracy-state imperialism. Chicano identity was organized around seven objectives: unity, economy, education, institutions, self-defence, culture, and political liberation, in an effort to bridge regional and class divisions among people of Mexican (and latterly Latin American) descentSubmitted by: ethnocultural group
In most specific terms, money in any form, when used in circulation as a medium of exchange is known as currency. Every country has its own currency, like the US dollar is the currency of the USA.
cassandra Submitted by: metaphor
The term originates in Greek mythology. Struck by the beauty of Cassandra, daughter of Priam, Apollo provided her with the gift of prophecy, but when Cassandra refused Apollo's romantic advances, he placed a curse ensuring that nobody would believe her warnings. Cassandra was left with the knowledge of future events, but could neither alter these events nor convince others of the validity of her predictions. In psychology the Cassandra metaphor applies to to individuals who experience physical and emotional suffering as a result of distressing personal perceptions, and who are disbelieved when they attempt to share the cause of their suffering with others.
Confucius Submitted by: 551BCE-479BCE
Confucius (551 to 479 BCE) was a Chinese philosopher and politician of the Spring and Autumn period who was traditionally considered the paragon of Chinese sages. Widely considered one of the most important and influential individuals in Chinese history, Confucius's teachings and philosophy formed the basis of much of East Asian culture and society, and continue to remain influential across China and East Asia today. His philosophical teachings, called Confucianism, emphasised personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice, kindness, and sincerity.

We were promised sufferings. They were part of the program. We were even told, 'Blessed are they that mourn,' and I accept it. I've got nothing that I hadn't bargained for. Of course it is different when the thing happens to oneself, not to others, and in reality, not imagination.Submitted by: English Writer
C Wright Mills
People with advantages are loathe to believe that they just happen to be people with advantages. They come readily to define themselves as inherently worthy of what they possess; they come to believe themselves 'naturally' elite; and, in fact, to imagine their possessions and their privileges as natural extensions of their own elite selves.

[W]here obscenity is not involved, we have consistently held that the determinations of: "what appeals to the 'prurient interest' or is 'patently offensive' ... are essentially questions of fact, and our Nation is simply too big and too diverse for this Court to reasonably expect that such standards could be articulated for all 50 States in a single formulation, even assuming the prerequisite consensus exists."

But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you.

Books permit us to voyage through time, to tap the wisdom of our ancestors. The library connects us with the insight and knowledge, painfully extracted from Nature, of the greatest minds that ever were, with the best teachers, drawn from the entire planet and from all our history, to instruct us without tiring, and to inspire us to make our own contribution to the collective knowledge of the human species. I think the health of our civilisation, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries.Submitted by: American Astronomer (1934-1996)

The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us -- there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height.

The Hindu religion is the only one of the world’s great faiths dedicated to the idea that the Cosmos itself undergoes an immense, indeed an infinite, number of deaths and rebirths. It is the only religion in which the time scales correspond to those of modern scientific cosmology. Its cycles run from our ordinary day and night to a day and night of Brahma, 8.64 billion years long. Longer than the age of the Earth or the Sun and about half the time since the Big Bang.Submitted by: American Astronomer (1934-1996)
The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends on how well we know this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky.Submitted by: American Astronomer (1934-1996)

The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore, we've learned most of what we know. Recently, we've waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting.

We inhabit a universe where atoms are made in the centers of stars; where each second a thousand suns are born; where life is sparked by sunlight and lightning in the airs and waters of youthful planets; where the raw material for biological evolution is sometimes made by the explosion of a star halfway across the Milky Way; where a thing as beautiful as a galaxy is formed a hundred billion times - a Cosmos of quasars and quarks, snowflakes and fireflies, where there may be black holes and other universe and extraterrestrial civilisations whose radio messages are at this moment reaching the Earth.

Every aspect of Nature reveals a deep mystery and touches our sense of wonder and awe. Those afraid of the universe as it really is, those who pretend to nonexistent knowledge and envision a Cosmos centered on human beings will prefer the fleeting comforts of superstition.

In his celebrated book, 'On Liberty', the English philosopher John Stuart Mill argued that silencing an opinion is 'a peculiar evil.' If the opinion is right, we are robbed of the 'opportunity of exchanging error for truth'; and if it's wrong, we are deprived of a deeper understanding of the truth in its 'collision with error'. If we know only our own side of the argument, we hardly know even that: it becomes stale, soon learned by rote, untested, a pallid and lifeless truth.Submitted by: American Astronomer (1934-1986)

Carl Edward Sagan (9-Nov-1934 to 20-Dec-1996) was an American astronomer, planetary scientist, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, author, and science communicator. His best known scientific contribution is research on extraterrestrial life, including experimental demonstration of the production of amino acids from basic chemicals by radiation. Sagan assembled the first physical messages sent into space, the Pioneer plaque and the Voyager Golden Record, universal messages that could potentially be understood by any extraterrestrial intelligence that might find them. Sagan argued the hypothesis, accepted since, that the high surface temperatures of Venus can be attributed to and calculated using the greenhouse effect.Submitted by: 1934-1996
The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.

Four sorrows are certain to be visited on the United States. First, there will be a state of perpetual war. Second is a loss of democracy and Constitutional rights as the presidency eclipses Congress and is itself transformed from a co-equal 'executive branch' of government into a military junta. Third is the replacement of truth by propaganda, disinformation, and the glorification of war, power, and the military legions. Lastly, there is bankruptcy, as the United States pours its economic resources into ever more grandiose military projects and shortchanges the education, health, and safety of its citizens.Submitted by: American Writer

Corporations are, theologically speaking, institutions of death. They commodify everything – the natural world, human beings – that they exploit until exhaustion or collapse.

Cult leaders [demagogues] arise from decayed communities and societies in which people have been shorn of political, social and economic power. The disempowered, infantilized by a world they cannot control, gravitate to cult leaders who appear omnipotent and promise a return to a mythical golden age. The cult leaders vow to crush the forces, embodied in demonized groups and individuals, that are blamed for their misery. The more outrageous the cult leaders become, the more they flout law and social conventions, the more they gain in popularity. Cult leaders are immune to the norms of established society. This is their appeal. Cult leaders demand a God-like power. Those who follow them grant them this power in the hope that the cult leaders will save them.
Our Class - Trauma and Transformation in an American Prison (2020)Submitted by: Polemic Journalist
"The flaws of the left’s current pathologies were all there at the beginning. The scale of the intervention is fundamentally individual and psychological. Change hinges on a stereotypically middle-class concern with manners and etiquette; the diversity, equity, and inclusion training industry would call it 'interpersonal interaction' and would invert the norms. Instead of children being seen and not heard they are taught to claim their space and find their voice. Yet in other ways the diversity training industry teaches lessons not much different from knowing which fork is for salad."Submitted by: American academic and journalist (1969-)

But even in the much-publicised rebellion of the young against the materialism of the affluent society, the consumer mentality is too often still intact: the standards of behaviour are still those of kind and quantity, the security sought is still the security of numbers, and the chief motive is still the consumer’s anxiety that he is missing out on what is 'in'.

Corporate Profit from Public Funding Vaccine Tech. Upward wealth transfer? Submitted by: Socioeconomics
Why are these big corporations Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca given vast public funding to develop their vaccine tech, but then no taxpayer share in the astronomical profits and no free access to the medical innovation they've funded? Why are these corporations private profit, public funding, immune from ALL legal consequences of the vaccines AFTER full approval i.e. they're no longer experimental?

Crypto: NamecoinSubmitted by: Cryptosphere Crypto: Save The Kids Token Submitted by: Cryptosphere
It's been obvious from the start the world of influencers and gamers and sucker fanbases is a dirty, degraded Parliament of Fowls. Even without the long list of scams (like the Save The Kids token) it's an infantilism that stunts the brains of almost everyone involved. Combine the survivor-bias kay fabe glamour of elevating gaming to e-sports, gamers to heroes, with the most degraded monetization of mass media exploiting audience psychology - conditioning children into retarded adults to best prepare them for a life among the suckers - and the sham intimacy of personal direct to fans delivery systems. End result: a mainstream adjacent Ponzi world that's so populated and so structured to exploit, it's conditioning millions of adults dominated by path of least resistance fantasy into the world. This can't end well.
