Christopher Helali & Jeff Brown, RE: "Revolutionary Family" I'm sure in deeper conversation, you agree
ON THE PROBLEM OF GLORIFYING 300 YEARS of DYSFUNCTIONAL INSTITUTIONAL 'REVOLUTION' WORLDWIDE
LANGUAGE: 'SOCIAL' (Latin 'socius' = 'friend') or 'COMMUNITY' (L. 'com' = 'together' + 'munus' = 'gift-or-service') each imply an intimate level of human engagement, with people we know. Unfortunately this intimate human engagement is perverted by false 'socialism' & false 'communism' violent 'revolutions', into their exact opposite meanings as centralized institutional & state inappropriately scaled & delivered services without the connection of intelligence of the families, extended-families & neighbours, who know their members.
SOCIALIST ATTROCITY In Canada for example the fake socialist New-Democratic-Party was hi-jacked by hidden Oligarch campaign contributions into voting en-mass for the NATO No-Fly-Zone bombing of Libya. Canada performed 23% of the bombing missions to destroy Libya's essential service infrastructure. While Gaddafi helped Libyans evolve from Africa's poorest to its richest most distributed wealth & livelihood empowerment, the NDP played a key role in reducing Libya back down to one of Africa's poorest. Circa 2011, I interviewed 9 NDP Leadership candidates as a member of my riding executive.
As 2004-6, Green Party of Canada Shadow-Cabinet member on Ecological Design, I can attest to how Greens as a party are captured & easily manipulated again by Oligarchy's hidden Campaign Finance moneys.
The false 1917 Russian 'Revolution' was financed, armed & supplied by US Wall-Street & US Federal Reserve founder Jacob Schiff through Lev Davidovich Bronstein (Trotsky) & Schiff's colleague German Financier Warburg, who arms, finances & supplies Lenin, violently imposed false 'co-operatives' ('co' = 'together' + 'operatives' = 'stakeholders') on an already thriving Russian 'community' movement under Tsar tutelage. Reference to Antony Sutton 'Wall-Street & the Bolshevik Revolution'. Today's false 'socialists' & false 'communists' unabashedly throw-around / propagate these perverted meanings in their advocacy, unaware, even as to word origins, typically meaning top-down centralized systems of command & control.
CONFOUNDING THE MEANING OF 'SOCIAL' & 'COMMUNITY'
This false violently imposed Co-op 'economy' (Greek 'oikos' = 'home' + 'namein' = 'care-&-nurture'), retarded Russia & China for 75 years as well as continues to negatively influence these economies & societies even as these & formerly 'socialist' & 'communist' countries are trying to redefine themselves with such as Perestroika (Russian 'restructuring') & such as China's Huawei Computer & Artificial-Intelligence as a multistakeholder 'Participatory' (L 'part' = 'share') corporation far surpassing western autocracies.
VIOLENCE breeds autocracy & IGNORANCE. Co-ops (& non-profits) without accounting recognition, progressive ownership, intelligence & empowerment, for each person or collective entity contributions, devolved in 3 generations (~25 years x 3) into huge centralized bureaucracies (policy decided by those in offices) as each local co-op business fails. To overcome local economic failure, Office-holders at the top reach for greater Critical-mass, Economies-of-scale, which as well fail on massive levels.
'Co-op' FAILURE is EQUIVALENT to western OLIGARCH FALSE 'CAPITAL' (L. 'cap' = 'head' = 'collective-intelligence') FAILURE where central issue of false 'money' (Greek 'mnemosis' = 'memory'), creates 'Amnesia' (Greek "a"- "not" + mnesi- "remembering") = 'Forgetfulness' for the complementary human labour contributions which create value in human society. Oligarch trickledown fake economies to their friends, family & colleague sycophants, create huge waste, pollution & resource inefficiencies, where western societies must parasite upon 2nd & 3rd world extractive, exploitive resource economies through government destabilization, war & ecological destruction in order to live our extravagant destructive lifestyles.
Popular fake top-down 'revolutions' are in effect simply 'REACTION' by we in our time as 'REACTIONARIES', given that we were unaware of following our institutional 'exogenous' (L. 'other-generated') colonial indoctrination in reacting & imposing the same dysfunctional processes, when we attained economic or political power & agency. Mohandas Gandhi's alignment with India's 'Swadeshi' (Hindi 'Indigenous' aka 'Self-sufficiency') movement as India's economic engine from 1917-47's 'Swaraj' (H. 'Self-rule') & Indigenous COUNCIL PROCESS through 'Satyagraha' (H. 'Truth-search'). https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/d-participatory-structure/2-sayagraha-truth-search SWADESHI, following ancient indigenous practices, was one of the most effective 'economic' transformations of the 20th Century, albeit interrupted by Gandhi's 1949 assassination & today championed by such as India's Vandana Shiva.
I speak PERSONALLY from 60 years(of my 70 years of age) active INVOLVEMENT in Student-led education, developing Natural Food co-ops, non-profits across Canada, in living for a decade among Russian Doukhobor, German Mennonite, English Quaker & American pacifist co-op communities in British Columbia, Uranium exploration & mining Moratoriums in BC 1982 & Quebec 2014, Complex Synthetic Pesticide Ban in Quebec ~2000 & other Union Health & Safety & Industrial Pollution Control design, architecture, construction & prototype innovation research & involvement. The above Anabaptist pacifist co-op colonial communities also took 3 generations in order to appreciate how their 'co-ops' were not flourishing or supporting their communities & are still perplexed as to the economic livelihood way forward. Some reflection among few members has been upon their arrival as settlers, being part of violently transgressing 1st Nation indigenous sovereignty & economic culture rather than properly immigrating & joining with 1st Nation peoples & governing structures.
Few today, remember the depth of real Free-Speech in Multiple aspects of living, once expressed as the interdisciplinary Indigenous CIRCLE-of-LIFE, which provided check & balance functions over many 10s of 1000s of years of vibrant, abundant, distributed wealth in loving societies. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/a-home/3-indigenous-circle-of-life
