A Cashless Society: Orwell's Perfect 1984 Scenario Bail-ins of personal accounts and negative interest rates on personal accounts are part of a larger, long-range strategy by government and the financial sector to eliminate the use of physical cash and to make "money" strictly electronic.

Kaepernick and Ali: Two of a Kind Kaepernick's protest mirrors Muhammad Ali's refusal to be drafted in 1967, and public reaction has been similar in both instances. Nevertheless, history came to see Ali in a different light. How Kaepernick fares over time is yet to be seen.

But he's "not a politician".

Trump: The Lesser Of Two Evils The case is strong that Hillary Clinton, given her history and strong links to military interests, is vastly more dangerous than Donald Trump. The GOP has the capacity to contain a President Trump, whereas the Clintons are the top power in the Democratic Party.

It's The Two-Party System Stupid! The Two-Party System has succeeded in keeping alternative political viewpoints away from public consideration. Populist Sanders has an opportunity to run as an independent or under an "alternate" party banner and lessen the stranglehold the two major parties enjoy.

"Places To Go" For Progressive Voters The Democratic Party seems to believe that Sanders supporters will ultimately fall in line. If the Sanders campaign fails to take the nomination, many of his supporters are pledging not to cave to the Clinton campaign and will vote Sanders as a write-in, for Trump, or for Jill Stein of the Green Party.
