This page, as of 1 September 2016, is mirrored from Jill Stein's biography page.

Addressing "structural racism"

Stein has deplored what she and others identify as the structural racism of the U.S. judicial and prison system. She has promised that "the Green New Deal prioritizes job creation in the areas of greatest need: communities of color" and argues that the war on drugs has disproportionately affected communities of color.[1]

On Juneteenth in 2016, Stein called for reparations for slavery.[2][3] In accepting the nomination of the Green party, she reiterated this support, calling for a Truth and Reconciliation Commission "to provide reparations to acknowledge the enormous debt owed to the African American community."[4]

Asked by the Washington Post whether she agreed with Baraka's characterization of President Obama as an "Uncle Tom", Stein replied that it would be better to address questions about his choice of words to him, but added that she thought he "was speaking to a demographic that feels pretty locked out of the American power structure."[5]

Economy

Referring to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal approach to the Great Depression, Stein advocated a Green New Deal in her 2012 and 2016 campaigns, in which renewable energy jobs would be created to address climate change and environmental issues; the objective would be to employ "every American willing and able to work".[6] Stein said she would fund the start-up costs of the plan with a 30% reduction in the U.S. military budget, returning U.S. troops home, and increasing taxes on speculation in stock markets, offshore tax havens, and multi-million-dollar real estate, among other things. In 2012 and 2016 she cited a 2012 study in the Review of Black Political Economy by Rutgers professor Phillip Harvey[7] showing that the multiplier economic effects of this "Green New Deal" would recoup most of the start-up costs of her plan.[6] Stein further argued that her plan "will end unemployment and poverty".[8]

Stein's 2016 platform says that she will "democratize the Federal Reserve".[8] In her 2012 platform, she wanted to "nationalize" the Federal Reserve and place it within the Treasury Department, ending its independence.[9][10] Stein has argued that the Wall Street bailout was unconscionable[11] and a "waste".[12] In 2012, Stein opposed the raising of the debt ceiling, arguing that the U.S. should instead raise taxes on the wealthy and make military spending cuts to offset the debt.[13]

Stein supports the creation of sustainable infrastructure based on clean renewable-energy generation and sustainable-community principles to stop what her party sees as a growing convergence of environmental crises in water, soil, fisheries, and forests. Her vision includes increasing intra-city mass transit and inter-city railroads, creating complete streets that safely encourage bike and pedestrian traffic, and regional food systems based on sustainable organic agriculture.[6]

Stein has been skeptical of official employment numbers, saying in her 2015 State of the Union Green Party response that unemployment figures at the time were "designed to essentially cover up unemployment," and arguing that the real unemployment rate for that year was around 12–13%.[14][15] In February 2016, she said that "real unemployment is nearly 10%, 2x as high as the official rate."[16]

Stein has said she believes in having "the government as the employer of last resort".[5] When asked in an August 2016 interview what this entailed, she said that the idea was a "very broad brushstroke" but that a position paper was forthcoming.[5]

Stein's platform pledges to guarantee housing.[5][17] When asked how this would be done, Stein answered, "that is an aspirational goal at this point. We do not have a specific program."[5]

Education

Template:POV section

In a much-discussed interaction with parents and teachers, Stein stated that she felt the move towards computerized education in kindergarten was good neither for young children's cognitive nor social development, saying, "We should be moving away from screens at all levels of education."[18] She argues that such a policy is not good for teachers, children, or communities, but does benefit device manufacturers.[18] Her position on Wi-Fi in the classroom is likewise critical of device manufacturers:

We should not be subjecting kids' brains especially to that... and we don’t follow this issue in our country, but in Europe where they do [...] they have good precautions about wireless. Maybe not good enough [...] it’s very hard to study this stuff. You know, we make guinea pigs out of whole populations and then we discover how many die. This is the paradigm for how public health works in this country. [...] Our research institutions, as well, need to be publicly funded and publicly accountable, not for the device manufacturers, not sponsored by the pharmaceutical companies.[18]

Stein has argued for "free higher public education going forward."[5] She has spoken in favor of canceling all student debt, arguing that it could be done using quantitative easing and without raising taxes.[19][20] Stein has described quantitative easing as a "digital hat-trick" and "magic trick that basically people don't need to understand any more about than that it is a magic trick."[15][19] According to Stein, the Federal Reserve would buy up student loans and agree not to collect on the debt, canceling it.[21] (CNBC argued that because the Federal Reserve is an independent government agency, the president cannot implement such a plan.[21]) Stein has drawn parallels between her student loan proposal and the Wall Street bailout, saying that the US government bought up Wall Street debt and then canceled it.[15] She has said that her campaign will do for the "43 million young people trapped in predatory student loan debt" what "our mis-leaders saw fit to do for Wall Street when they bailed them out to the tune of 16 or 17 trillion dollars using so-called quantitative easing".[19] She has said that her plan would be a "stimulus package" for a generation "held hostage in debt".[20] Jordan Weissmann of Slate argues that Stein's Wall Street comparison is "flat wrong": the Federal Reserve did not buy and cancel debt owed by the banks but bought and held onto debt owned by the banks.[15] Laurence Kotlikoff, writing of the bailout in Forbes, claimed that "[i]n 2007, the monetary base – the amount of money our government printed in its entire 231 years of existence totaled $800 billion. Today it totals $2.8 trillion."[22]

When asked why her plan includes canceling upper-income individuals' debt, Stein responded that higher education "pays for itself" and that education is not a "gift," but a "right," and a "necessity."[5]

She opposes charter schools and has been critical of the Common Core, saying that teachers rather than "corporate contractors" should be responsible for education.[23]

Electoral reform

Stein is critical of the two-party system, and argues for ranked-choice voting as a favorable alternative to "lesser evilism".[24][25] Calling for "more voices and more choices", the Stein campaign launched a petition demanding that all candidates appearing on a sufficient number of state ballots to be theoretically electable should be invited to participate in the presidential debates.[26][27]

Energy and environment

Stein proposes that the United States transition to 100% renewable energy by 2030,[8] and supports a national ban on fracking.[8][28] She has spoken against nuclear energy, saying it "is dirty, dangerous and expensive, and should be precluded on all of those counts."[28] In March 2016, she tweeted, "Nuclear power plants = weapons of mass destruction waiting to be detonated."[29] In 2012, Stein said, "three times more jobs are created per dollar invested in conservation and renewables. Nuclear is currently the most expensive per unit of energy created."[30] Stein says that she will "ensure that any worker displaced by the shift away from fossil fuels will receive full income and benefits as they transition to alternative work."[31] She has further argued that moving away from fossil fuels will produce substantial savings in healthcare costs.[4] She wants to "treat energy as a human right".[31]

Stein accepts the scientific consensus on climate change, calling it a "national emergency".[5] She has described the Paris Climate Agreement as inadequate, saying it will not stop climate change.[5] She has proposed to override the agreement and create a more effective one.[5]

Stein has argued that the cost of transitioning to 100% renewable energy by 2030 would in part be recouped by healthcare savings, citing the experience of Cuba when it lost Soviet oil subsidies and Cubans experienced improvements in health outcomes.[5]

Foreign policy

Stein wants to cut U.S. military spending by at least 50%.[8][32] She would close US overseas military bases and has said that they "are turning our republic into a bankrupt empire".[8] She wants to replace the lost military jobs "with jobs in renewable energy, transportation and green infrastructure development"[31] and to "restore the National Guard as the centerpiece of our defense".[31]

Stein has argued that the United States "helped foment" a coup in Ukraine, maintaining that Ukraine should be neutral and that the United States should not arm it.[33] She was critical of the Ukrainian government formed after the Ukrainian Revolution of 2014, saying that "ultra-nationalists and ex-Nazis came to power."[34] She met with president Putin in Moscow in December 2015 at a banquet celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Russian state television network RT. While in Russia, Stein criticized Russian and American military spending, as well as the state of human rights in the U.S.[35]

On the subject of NATO, Stein has said that NATO has violated international law in Libya, and that it is part of "of a foreign policy that has been based on economic and military domination".[5] When asked whether she agreed with Ajamu Baraka's description of NATO as "gangster states", Stein answered that she would not use Baraka's language but that "he means the same thing I'm saying".[5] Stein has said that NATO "pursued a policy of basically encircling Russia — including the threat of nukes and drones and so on."[33] When asked by the Washington Post about NATO's role in the Baltic, Stein responded that NATO has not followed its stated policy after the fall of the Berlin Wall not to move "one inch to the East." She further argued that there has been provocation on both sides and that a diplomatic approach is necessary.[5] Stein has said that NATO fights invented enemies in order to provide work for the weapons industry.[36]

After U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces captured Manbij from ISIL in August, Stein tweeted, "To Syrians who escaped Manbij because of U.S.-led forces, I'm sorry our weapons terrorized you for two years."[37] She has said that her approach to the Syrian Civil War would be to put in place a weapons embargo, freeze funds going to ISIL and other terrorist groups, and push for a peace process leading to a ceasefire.[5] Stein is also in favor of taking "far more" than the 10,000 Syrian refugees Obama has pledged to take in.[5]

Stein has been sharply critical of the use of drones, calling them a human rights violation and an "illegal assassination program" saying that they are "off target nine times out of ten."[38]

Stein has been highly critical of Israel, accusing the Israeli government of "apartheid, assassination, illegal settlements, blockades, building of nuclear bombs, indefinite detention, collective punishment, and defiance of international law."[39] She supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel[40] and regards Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a "war criminal".[41] Upon the death of Nobel Peace Laureate Elie Wiesel, Stein praised him in a tribute on her Facebook page, but deleted the post when commenters criticized Wiesel's Zionism.[42]

Regarding disputes in the South China Sea, Stein has said, "it is wrongheaded for [the United States] to deal with territorial rights on the borders of China."[33]

Having posted a statement on her website immediately after the UK voted to leave the European Union arguing that the vote was a victory for those resisting austerity,[43][44][45][46][47] Stein later clarified her official statement, saying "Before the Brexit vote I agreed with Jeremy Corbyn, Caroline Lucas and the UK Greens who supported staying in the EU but working to fix it."[46][47][48]

In 2012, Stein favored maintaining current levels of international aid spending.[49]

Health

Stein is in favor of replacing the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) with a "Medicare-for-All" healthcare system[49] and has said that it is an "illusion" that Obamacare is a "step in the right direction" toward single-payer healthcare.[50] When asked in August 2016 whether she supported a ballot measure in Colorado to create the first universal healthcare system in the nation (ColoradoCare), Stein said she was not ready to endorse the plan, citing concerns about gaps and loopholes in the ballot measure.[51]

Stein has been critical of subsidizing unhealthy food products and of "agri-business" for its advertisements encouraging unhealthy eating. She has said that due to agri-business, Greeks no longer have the healthy diets they once did.[12]

Science

The peer-reviewed report Stein co-authored with Physicians for a National Health Program, In Harm's Way: Toxic Threats to Child Development,[52] received endorsements from six experts on public health.[53] Stein has said: "For science geeks, you can show yourself if you have any doubt that I too am a science geek."[54]

In the 2016 election, Stein was criticized for adopting political positions based on what critics have called "out-of-the-mainstream" views on science-related topics.[55][56]

Homeopathy

Regarding homeopathy, Stein said in May 2016 that "just because something is untested doesn't mean it's safe", but argued that it is problematic that "agencies tied to big pharma and the chemical industry" test medicines.[57] When asked in 2012 about the Green Party's health care platform (which supported homeopathy at that time), Stein said that the platform took "an admittedly simple position on a complex issue, and should be improved".[58]

Pesticides and GMOs

In Environmental Threats to Healthy Aging (2008), Stein concludes her section on pesticides by saying: "[M]any but not all studies find that acute high-dose and chronic lower-dose occupational exposures to some neurotoxic pesticides are linked to an increased risk of cognitive decline, dementia or Alzheimer's disease."[59]

In 2000, Stein and her coauthors wrote, "Twenty million American children five and under eat an average of eight pesticides every day through food consumption. Thirty-seven pesticides registered for use on foods are neurotoxic organophosphate insecticides, chemically related to more toxic nerve warfare agent developed earlier this century." They further noted the ubiquity of these pesticides in the home and at schools, citing Schettler et al. for the claim that "The trend is toward increasingly common exposures to organophosphates. For example, chlorpyrifos detections in urine increased more than tenfold from 1980 to 1990."[60][61]

Stein supports GMO labeling and a moratorium on new GMOs until they are proven safe, and would phase out GMO foods.[55] Speaking of the health effects of foods derived from GM crops, she has said: "And I can tell you as a physician with special interest and long history in environmental health, the quality of studies that we have are not what you need. We should have a moratorium until they are proven safe, and they have not been proven safe in the way that they are used."[55]

Commentators have criticized Stein's statements about GMOs as contradicting the scientific consensus that existing GM foods are no less safe than foods made from conventional crops.[56][62][63][64][65][66][67] Among the critics was Jordan Weissmann, Slate's business and economics editor, who wrote in July 2016: "Never mind that scientists have studied GMOs extensively and found no signs of danger to human health—Stein would like medical researchers to prove a negative."[15]

Spending on scientific research

In 2012, Vote Smart reported that Stein wanted to "slightly decrease" spending on space exploration. She favored maintaining current levels of spending on scientific and medical research.[49] In 2016, Stein said NASA funding should be increased, arguing that by halving the military budget, more money could be directed towards "exploring space instead of destroying planet Earth."[68]

Vaccines and mercury

In an interview with the Washington Post, Stein stated that "vaccines have been absolutely critical in ridding us of the scourge of many diseases," and said that "[t]here were concerns among physicians about what the vaccination schedule meant, the toxic substances like mercury which used to be rampant in vaccines. There were real questions that needed to be addressed. I think some of them at least have been addressed. I don’t know if all of them have been addressed." [69][70] The Guardian says that "research has shown schedule-related concerns about vaccines to be unfounded, and that delays to vaccines actually put children at greater risk. Anti-vaxx campaigners often claim that there are dangerous compounds in vaccines, though decades of safe vaccinations contradict the claim and no evidence shows that trace amounts that remain in some approved vaccines cause any harm to the body."[70]

In the Washington Post interview, Stein said that vaccines should be approved by a board that people can trust, and "people do not trust a Food and Drug Administration," or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "where corporate influence and the pharmaceutical industry has a lot of influence."[57][69] According to The Guardian, eleven members of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee are medical doctors who work at hospitals and universities, and two work at pharmaceutical companies, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi Pasteur US.[70] In response, Stein said that "Monsanto lobbyists help run the day in those agencies and are in charge of approving what food isn’t safe".[69]Emily Willingham, scientist and contributor at Forbes, described Stein's statements on vaccines as "using dog whistle terms and equivocations bound to appeal to the 'antivaccine' constituency".[71] Dan Kahan, a professor at Yale who has studied public perception of science, says that it is dangerous for candidates to equivocate on vaccines, "Because the attitudes about vaccines are pretty much uniform across the political spectrum, it doesn’t seem like a great idea for any candidate to be anti-vaccine. The modal view is leave the freaking system alone."[72] In response to a Twitter question about whether vaccines cause autism, Stein first answered, "there is no evidence that autism is caused by vaccines," then revised her tweet to "I'm not aware of evidence linking autism with vaccines."[73]

In a later interview at the Green party convention, Stein answered "no" to the question "do you think vaccines cause autism?"[74] She called this a "nonsense issue, meant to distract people" and likened it to smear campaigns used in previous presidential elections, citing the "Swiftboat issue" or the "birther issue,"[74] pointing out that in her previous published work on autism and other child development issues,[60] no mention was made of vaccines.[74] When asked about vaccines by Jacobin editor Bhaskar Sunkara, Stein responded: "One of the issues I used to work on was reducing mercury exposure. That was an issue at one point in vaccines. That’s been rectified," adding, "there are issues about mercury in the fish supply that many low-income people and immigrant communities rely on, and in indigenous communities especially. This is a huge issue and the FDA has refused for decades to regulate and to warn people."[75]

Wi-Fi

In a question-and-answer session, Stein voiced concern about wireless internet (Wi-Fi) in schools, saying, "We should not subjecting kid’s brains especially to that... and we don’t follow this issue in our country, but in Europe where they do, you know, they have good precautions about wireless. Maybe not good enough, you know. It’s very hard to study this stuff. You know, we make guinea pigs out of whole populations and then we discover how many die."[55][76][77] According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "no adverse health effects are expected from exposure to [Wi-Fi]".[77]Template:Under discussion inline

Whistleblowers and political prisoners

In her acceptance speech for the Green Party nomination, she called for "end[ing] the war on whistleblowers, and free[ing] the political prisoners [...] Leonard Peltier, Mumia Abu Jamal, Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Jeffrey Sterling, and Edward Pinkney[.]" [4] She said that she would have Snowden in her Cabinet if elected.[78] In an op-ed on the subject of Wikileaks, Stein argued that Assange was doing what journalists should be doing but are not, and added that whistle-blowers have been increasingly subject to "character assassination" and prosecution during the Obama administration. In her view, it is heroic to resist the media and political elite's control of information.[79]
