On April 29, 2019, we attempted to go live to address some questions and comments that our followers and subscribers had asked. However, we discovered that YouTube has changed their live streaming policy quite recently. In order to go live from a mobile device, a YouTube channel is now required to have 1,000 subscribers.
In the video below, we address some of the questions that our followers and subscribers have asked. We talk about three upcoming projects (video essays) that are in the hopper and we just chat a little bit about our big life changing move across the United States.
In the broadcast I mention Cory Morningstar and relate her as being an indigenous woman, or First Nations. Her specific ancestry (I’ve since discovered) may not be but her essays and interviews reflect an indigenous perspective.
It is my firm belief that we must passively disappear off the landscape of forced colonized media and allow the voices and research from our indigenous communities guide us and teach us. We must learn from them, for they can sense colonization in ways that we can’t even see because of our limited perspective. If we stifle their voices or try to capitalize or co-opt them, we lose everything.
Not only has Morningstar been able to illustrate a disastrous and devastating future that the Green New Deal holds for us, but she speaks true environmental language. “What if instead of going to a protest we all planted a garden? Can you imagine what a world would look like if 50,000 of us planted a garden?”
Capital has been running out of ways to make money and it has turned to the State, media and NGOs to help it create new markets. Through disaster capitalism or convincing the public to demand a program or a war it wants the State to provide or execute, Capital and the elite who are behind global corporations get rich from the resulting government-funded projects.
In this light, we discuss the possible ‘why’ an 800 year old cathedral burned and was nearly destroyed after surviving centuries of fires, floods and two World Wars.
