Capitalism Is Not the "Market System"
Shared by williampitt | truthout.org | 2018-09-02
With the Democratic Socialists of America now counting 48,000 people within its membership and socialist candidates such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushing for free universities and Medicare for All, Americans are once again discussing capitalism versus socialism. Fortunately, they are not doing so in the old Cold War manner of uncritically celebrating one while demonizing the other. Rather, it's a debate over the choice Americans must make now between keeping capitalism or changing the system to some form of socialism. As debates often do, this debate awakens us to problems and differences in how we understand its basic terms. For clarity and to make progress in this important debate, we need to stop conflating "capitalism" with the market. This is done far too often and on all sides of the debate. | Markets are a means of distributing resources and products, goods and services.

Editor's note: The past is prologue. The stories we tell about ourselves and our forebears inform the sort of country we think we are and help determine public policy. As our current president promises to "make America great again," this moment is an appropriate time to reconsider our past, look back at various eras of United States history and re-evaluate America's origins. When, exactly, were we "great"? | Below is the 16th installment of the "American History for Truthdiggers" series, a pull-no-punches appraisal of our shared, if flawed, past. The author of the series, Danny Sjursen, an active-duty major in the U.S. Army, served military tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and taught the nation's checkered, often inspiring past when he was an assistant professor of history at West Point. His war experiences, his scholarship, his skill as a writer and his patriotism illuminate…

Are Trump Supporters Evil or Just Wrong?
Paul Rosenberg, Salon | alternet.org | 2018-09-02
A battle between two arcane-sounding theories about ideology actually wrestles with profound moral questions | Are Donald Trump's supporters driven by immoral hatred, or simply shaped by moral codes that most liberals or leftists don't understand? That question, phrased in more sophisticated and technical terms, has sharply divided political scientists ever since Trump's emergence on the scene — and in fact long before that. More than a year after the. . .

Trump's 5G Network Raises Concerns for Public Health and the Environment
Shared by mike_6 | truthout.org | 2018-09-02
The Trump administration is considering proposals for a national 5G wireless infrastructure in order to counter China's position in global technology markets, despite the many uncertainties and potential dangers of this technology for human health and the environment. | According to a PowerPoint deck produced by a senior National Security Council official, the United States has to build superfast 5G wireless technology quickly because "China has achieved a dominant position in the manufacture and operation of network infrastructure," and "China is the dominant malicious actor in the Information Domain." Trump has argued that, unlike a privately created 5G network, a government-run 5G network would be more secure against a threat of Chinese operatives and hackers that want to carry out cyber-espionage. | "We want to build a network so the Chinese can't listen to your calls," the senior official told Reuters.

Land of Extraction: How Prison Industry Settled in Central Appalachia
Shared by Merula Furtado | truthout.org | 2018-09-02
Driving the roads of any small coal town settled within the central Appalachian Mountains, it is easy to see the beauty of the landscape. However, this beauty is concealed by lasting embodiments of capitalist ideals, including rusting coal tipples or large swaths of mountains destroyed by mountain top removal mining, built on the bodies of the region's inhabitants who have been continually abandoned and exploited. Well documented is the level of destruction and exploitation residents continue to face following over a century of reliance on the coal industry. | Less evident is the alarming shift in the idea of "extraction" taking place. As mining operations in the area continue to fade, prisons now fill the void. This expansion furthers a level of labor exploitation documented since the earliest days of colonial practices in the United States. The mining industry capitalized on the…

Mulvaney Student Fee Whitewash Benefits Bank of America, US Bank
Shared by Anton Woronczuk | truthout.org | 2018-09-02
In December 2016, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau produced a study that was useful for the university administrators looking after millions of college students in the United States. | In an annual report to Congress, the agency published an analysis of agreements between credit and debit card issuers and institutes of higher learning–one that included warnings about boilerplate deals enabling banks to ply fees out of students. | "Many general marketing agreements contain features or lack protections that may make them inconsistent with the 'best financial interests' of students," the report warned in boldface text. The agency noted these deals "do not expressly prohibit certain fees," and stressed that "colleges may negotiate…to include additional key consumer protections." | Since the Trump administration took power, however–under the leadership of interim CFPB Director Mick Mulvaney–the tenor of the report changed drastically. Last year's…

Corporations Are Waging All-Out Class War
Staff | truthdig.com | 2018-09-02
America's political history has been written in the fierce narrative of war. Not our country's many military clashes with foreign nations, but our own unending war for democracy in the United States. | Generation after generation of moneyed elites have persisted in trying to take wealth and power from the workaday majority and concentrate both in their own hands to establish a de facto American aristocracy. Every time, the people have rebelled in organized mass struggles against the monopolists and financial royalists, often literally battling for a little more economic fairness, social justice, and equal opportunity. | And now, the time of a new democratic rebellion is upon us again, for We the People are suddenly in the grip of a brutish level of monopolistic power. | Corporate concentration of markets, profits, workplace decision-making, political influence, and our nation's total wealth is surpassing…
