    Welcome to the Vegan Vanguard. So, so we solved that. That just sort of want to silence us. Like I do think that we need to talk about alternatives, and it is important, and it is like really, it is hard. So, these are conversations we should be having. But like A, yeah, we should be having them in good faith, and B, we should be thinking of them as collaborative conversations that we need to be having, to build out some of these ideas in the present day.

    We have to actually understand that we ourselves are the creators of this. So we need to start imagining, we need to start building, we need to start talking and working together. It comes from, I think, a deep misunderstanding of what capitalism is.

    So, Mexie, I was wondering, what is capitalism, exactly? Because [LAUGHS] unlike what some people may think, that capitalism is this…voluntary interaction between two willing parties that exchange services, and both mutually benefit from the exchange of those services. Capitalism, socialism, anarchism, all of these isms are all different modes of production.

    So, each one of them can take many different forms. Like capitalism is often associated with liberal democracies. However, there have been, and continue to be, many capitalist dictatorships. So, capitalism is a mode of production based around the private ownership of the means of production and distribution of goods and services.

    This grew out of feudalism in England, through a series of private land-enclosures, where land was enclosed, and the peasants that were working that land were forced to leave. And so, since they no longer had access to that land, or means of producing for themselves, they were then forced to sell their labor for a wage. So, this is what we call primitive accumulation.

    This is the process through which people are turned into the laboring class, because they have no access to the means of producing anything for themselves. And they spend that capital and money, and hire laborers to produce commodities that will be sold for a higher amount than the money that was initially invested.

    And so, this additional value is produced by the workers, who are the ones who actually combine the raw materials into commodities, and produce this higher value.

    And this is how profits are made. And of course, the profits are taken by the capitalists. So capitalism does not function without this class hierarchy and exploitation of labor.

    And in order to compete with other capitalists, each firm must also strive to increase efficiency and profit-generation, in order to reinvest in increased production and efficiency. Because capital is really just capital-in-motion. But when the markets are saturated, the main way to increase profits is to lower the cost of production, which means putting a downward pressure on labor and wages, and cutting corners environmentally.

    Or in other words, the social and environmental costs of capitalist accumulation or competition are externalized. So these are not accidents—these are things that happen based on the inner mechanisms of capitalism as a mode of production itself. And as I said, capitalism can take many different forms. It can be a dictatorship, a quote-unquote liberal democracy. That is a very good point that needs to be underscored, that yeah, it can be anything.

    It was very insightful and super-concise. But I think we also need to understand that the economy, or capitalism, is not just an objective science of just like, well, certain people pursue profits, and then exploitation is inherent to it. MEXIE Yeah, for sure, because if you just look at what I just said about the inherent mechanisms of capitalism, profits are produced through inequality. Because the World Bank, and just a lot of [LAUGHS] important people, have been peddling this myth that inequality, on a global scale, is getting better with capitalism.

    And I looked into this a little bit more, and that myth is actually based on extremely misleading stats. The first is that, the stats are calculated as if everybody in the world is part of one big country. So, they were able to transform their economy largely according to their own standards. However, if we look at global inequality between different regions of the world—so, across rich and poor countries, or north and south, what we see is that inequality has gotten much, much worse.

    And actually, the income gap between the poor and the rich, in the last few decades, has tripled. Which is ridiculous, because no one can actually live on that. So, the yields of capitalism are very much going to the rich countries. So, trickle-down, my ass, at this rate of trickling down.

    The World Bank also incredibly doctored their stats on poverty. It makes me so mad when people say that poverty is being reduced. So, it looked pretty bad for them, where decade, after decade, after decade, poverty was increasing. But the original version of that was written prior.

    And this is the head of the World Bank. You think that it all of a sudden just switched from getting so much worse, to being immediately better? Whereas really, the problem is just as bad as before, if not way worse. So it really makes me sick when I see people like the Bills Gates Foundation, and just anyone online telling me, everything is getting so much better.

    This whole myth of international aid. And he obviously thinks that the real problem is the elite Jews that are running everything. And I was just like, oh my god, fuck off. That was done in December , by an association called the Global Financial Integrity Association, that partnered with the Norwegian school of economics, to study the financial flows around the world. Is that what you were looking at? So, you read it somewhere else, too?

    How has our imagination been so brainwashed and colonized, that we actually think that that makes sense? I feel like, even when I was a child, I never believed that. Literally a two-year-old would understand this. And I made my profile super-polarizing. Bonus points for Marxist analysis.

    Are anti-imperialist. Are feminist. I have all this shit, right. At all. And really, honestly believe that privatization is the way, that indebting other third-world countries is ethical. I mean, I am optimistic. So yeah, this is definitely a unique moment. What a great job those eight wealthy people are doing, in building all these right-wing think-tanks, and getting all these neo-nazis on board.

    That the economy is not objective. And I think people really need to understand that. That the flow of capital is regulated largely by the WTO. And these stats that I was citing earlier, that all of the money from the south is basically being hemorrhaged into the north— This is very much…orchestrated by the WTO, and the rich countries themselves.

    They make the decisions in terms of all of that: lending, Washington consensus policies, etc. So, this is all being structured by an elite few. So this whole myth of international aid has very much indoctrinated us with the belief that all north countries want to do is help the global south. And actually, after colonialism ended, the rich countries really made sure that all of the poor countries, economically poor countries, would stay indebted to us forever. So, you would think that, in the s, in the two decades after colonialism ended, there was so much resistance in the global south, and they elected a lot of leftist leaders, that they implemented tariff protections, and nationalized their own industries, redistributed land.

    However, they were not. How are we going to crush this resistance? And what they settled on was that, the rich countries settled agreements with the IMF, that the IMF would pay off, basically bailout African countries, only if they accepted structural adjustment programs that would liberalize their economy and privatize their assets.

    Basically allow northern countries to recolonize their entire economy. So, that was a way to bail them out, but to keep them so much more indebted in the long-run. Just foreign companies there, the majority of profits go to them, and the laborers get piddly shit.

    But it was torn down by neoliberal capitalist assholes. Everyone was murdered. And also that life expectancy and quality-of-life has increased so much under capitalism.

    First of all, I mean, there has been so much said [LAUGHS] about the black book of communism, which has been completely disproven, and yet people just still hark on these numbers. The war crimes of Bush, and Cheney, and Reagan, and everyone. Famine in Africa, while food is being exported. All of the deaths of left-wing groups everywhere at the hands of the CIA. All of the coups. And then, everyone who died during the aftermath of the structural adjustment programs.

    We installed dictatorships across the world.

    Or you can listen on Stitcher! Every day in the United States, living, breathing people die due to opioid overdose. The toll of these drugs is staggering. Our guest today is Andrew Kessler. He is the founder of Slingshot Solutions, a firm working to implement policy to put an end to opioid abuse and misuse.

    They could get a similar high for a much cheaper price. After running out of their prescription, some transition to heroin because of its low cost and similar high. Whether it is physical or emotional trauma, the users are often looking for ways to ease the pain by self-medicating. Additionally, regions such as Southern Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky have experienced myriad overdoses.

    Kessler says many of the black market pills were coming up from Florida and ending up in Appalachia. They use business models. Small Towns The Wall Street Journal has reported that small, rural towns have been hit particularly hard by the opioid epidemic. Comparatively cities, have more focused resources to treat and prevent illicit drug use. This could be evidence of a trend of younger Americans toward abuse.

    The increase in the use of opioids among the elderly may be due to prescribing practices. If we think about who is being prescribed pain-killers, Kessler says, it is the more often the elderly than the young.

    Some of their reports detail how many drug addicts are leaving their young children behind after they overdose. As a result, grandparents and the foster system are having to care for them. This, Kessler says, is overburdening the foster systems in many states across the country.

    The problem, Kessler tells us, expands beyond basic care needs. Children who watch their parents struggle through drug addiction, and possibly drug overdose, often need psychiatric care after this. Kessler describes how courts are being flooded with cases, property is being destroyed, and productivity in the workplace is lessened.

    The law forced insurance providers who provided mental health and addiction services, must reimburse at an equal level as general medical services. If mental health and addiction services were offered, they had to be offered the same as general services. The ACA had certain essential health benefits that had to be covered across all exchanges. Some of these essential health benefits covered mental health and addiction services. As a result, they missed many crucial years of development.

    They may not have built up the proper social skills, working skills, or the personal skills necessary to thrive in everyday life post-recovery.

    He would like to see more money invested into these areas. First, he argues that our criminal justice system cannot effectively carry out such a policy. Second, that drug dealers already face death on a daily basis, and a threat from the federal government is unlikely to stop them.

    This move surprised many policy experts on the topic; however, they were glad to be receiving so much attention for the topic. This material is solely intended for educational purposes based on publicly available information and may change at any time.

    They could get a similar high for a much cheaper price. VS will become its own non-profit organization completely separate from RCA. This separation will allow each organization to successfully pursue its own mission.

    Regina Caeli is bigger than one person. Let this now carry us forward to sustain the mission of training the mind to form the soul. Federal law prohibits the IRS office from commenting on private taxpayer matters, but if a criminal case results from an investigation, that information will become public record.

    Sercely said she had had some hesitations about Regina Caeli when she first joined. Lee, and she describes their dress code as misogynistic, focusing heavily on females covering their bodies, and ignoring the need for males to learn to control their eyes. She said that the format of RCA works very well with her young family, with classroom days providing the structure and stability they need, while still allowing for flexibility and down-time.

    Bishop Strickland, our clergy and the seminarians are unwavering in their support for VS and have assured us that they will be united with us to keep up our fight for the good.
