The E S C (is)Key-

Environment Society Capital- a Three Legged Stool- E S C-

Capital is for all people and all people are equal n o w as was, is, and will be :: Inn eternity-

One legged Capitalism is absent love and is circular crash inherent because an egoic mind construct mental fabrication of a creation set intent upon creating a primarily dedicated and CNTRLD system for only one group, and the people Democrats presently protect Republicans from :: Are never in the group because the game is gamed to always only look at one leg, in a fictitious and sinful way- dog eats dog system of underlying intent-

Sin; missing the mark in psychological time is an actual alien UFO like false energy construct- All Error present n o w from unbalanced capitalism aka AlienSin is easily correctable once people hav total CNTRL of capital aka allowed to love capital according to present environmental and societal evolution- Loving Capital is the ESC because lovelack is the problem here-

War is over- Love the Capital according ly, Earth ly and neighbor ly and live life n o w- Listen Lennon!!! Within you Without You Harrison!!!

This is why Democracy at Work receives an impeccable score in all categories, thank you Richard Wolff and all contributing guests and support folk of and for all people- Yes even T H E M !!!

Richard is the Impeccable guide who understands systems and rarely if ever makes focus about cults or a cult of persona unless driving home a lesson from a factual event-

Mucho appreciated-

Sports and capitalism

Good information today. I hope you will come back and talk more, especially about professional golf. I’m a female golfer, but late in life. Still enjoy it.
