Don’t let glib baloney assumptions fool us.

April 14, 2024 GlenAnderson 0

The public discourse — and politicians and media — are full of glib baloney and bogus assumptions. Do not let them fool is. THREE EXAMPLES:  The recurring rhetoric about “sustainable growth” is convenient baloney for those who profit from hurting the environment.  But the baloney rhetoric of “sustainable growth” is so pervasive that we must explicitly debunk it.  Nuclear weapons do NOT protect us.  Actually they endanger us because if anything goes wrong, we’d all be dead and the USA would become a radioactive ash heap. The private sector is lying when they say they can manage itself just fine […]

“No room at the inn” — U.S. policies provoke immigration but refuses to accommodate the victims

December 25, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The Christmas story highlights a young family — Joseph and Mary who was 9 months pregnant — who were forced by the oppressive undemocratic government that ruled over them to travel to a distant place.  But there was “no room at the inn,” so they had no choice but to stay in a stable, where Mary gave birth to Jesus. This iconic story of gross injustice keeps playing out nowadays with different characters and new ironies. For many decades the U.S. has supported brutal right-wing governments (sometimes overthrowing democracies in order to install those oppressive regimes) in Latin America and […]

Fossil Fuel Industry Hijacks Global Climate COP Summits

December 7, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Al Gore Says Fossil Fuel Industry Has “Captured the COP Process.”  The article linked here — — says this:  “The former U.S. vice president accused the United Arab Emirates of ‘abusing the public’s trust’ by naming the CEO of its national oil company as president of COP28.  Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore said Sunday that fossil fuel interests have effectively seized the reins of the United Nations climate summit process, preventing the kind of ambitious action that scientists say is necessary to prevent catastrophic warming and all of its cascading impacts.”   COP28: Amy Goodman Attempts to Question […]

Protect honest science from attacks and declining public trust!

December 3, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

At federal, state and local levels, right-wingers and businesses are applying pressures to hurt honest science. Fewer Americans now understand and respect science. Here are some recent articles:   Americans’ trust in science is declining:  Americans’ Trust in Scientists, Positive Views of Science Continue to Decline   Why Don’t Americans Believe in Science?   The psychology behind right-wing authoritarians’ denial of science:   Don’t Let Them Fool You: Disinformation Is Not an Accident. – Union of Concerned Scientists (   Politically motivated bullies want to “tear down the fabric of science.”   State and Local […]

November 28, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Biden said border walls do not work, but he is waiving 26 laws to build more of Trump’s Wall. These two articles were posted October 5, 2023:   and   Also, in order to continue building Trump’s Wall, Biden waived these two laws among the 26:  the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act .  Biden took his cruel action without seeking any input from local communities. His Department of Homeland Security is FAST-TRACKING the border wall construction and VIOLATING TREATIES.  Biden’s wall will go through a […]

What’s Wrong with the Debt Ceiling Deal — Watch TV program here and/or read the transcript

June 29, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The July 2023 episode of “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series examines the recent bi-partisan bill to increase the national debt ceiling.  I provide much fresh information – and many fresh insights – that counter what politicians and mainstream media have been saying: I explain the “debt ceiling” as a phony baloney scam that Republicans have been abusing. I explain why President Biden should not have caved into House Republicans’ bullying. I explain the very bad parts of this bi-partisan bill. I explain what Biden and Democrats should have done instead. I explain the remedies that would have been better than […]

These savvy, practical insights can reach and convince the public about our issues

March 21, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

I’ve been working with some people who want to “nationalize” an industry that has been owned by capitalists for many decades.  Several members of that group pointed out that calling for “nationalizing” it can leave us open to accusations of being “socialists” or “communists.”  They said that INSTEAD we should call for “public ownership,” which sounds more democratic and practical. I agree that it is crucially important to frame this issue with the appealing term “public ownership.” I wrote an article about the overall concept of how to choose our terminology to reach out effectively to the public and bring […]

Does the climate crisis still exist?  Has it gone away? It is NOT in the news now. In order to solve the climate crisis, WE MUST MAKE IT A HOT ISSUE AGAIN!!!  WE MUST ORGANIZE A SAVVY GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT to expose the problems and propose solutions!!!   Page 62 of the February-March 2023 issue of The Progressive Magazine ( reported this: “Only one independent news source, Truthout, reported on a Media Matters for America study that found that morning TV shows gave almost as much air-time to Bezos’s 2021 space launch as they did to all climate crisis news in […]

Extreme weather keeps pointing to climate disruption as the cause

March 1, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The old term “global warming” falls short of what is really happening to the climate.  The term “global warming” is misleading because — although on the AVERAGE, temperatures are rising — actually the climate is DISRUPTED in a variety of ways that cause EXTREME WEATHER in every part of the world. Some areas get heat waves.  Some areas get extremely cold weather.  We have droughts along with record-high rainfalls.  The jet stream is disrupted, so high-level atmospheric conditions that traditionally have gone through some areas go through other areas instead.  Likewise, ocean chemistry and ocean currents are shifting, which causes […]

To solve political-social-economic problems, we must organize PEOPLE-POWER grassroots movements

February 28, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

Several years ago, a guest on one of my TV programs said that only 5% of democracy is about voting, while 95% of democracy is about organizing grassroots movements.  I agree. People who have official power (politicians, big businesses, etc.) want ordinary people to feel powerless and get out of the way, so they themselves can make all of the important decisions. Alice Walker said, “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” If ordinary people actually did recognize our power — and our huge potential to organize strategically from the grassroots […]
