Arundhati Roy - The RSS: Fascism in India
26 Sep, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The realities of India are in sharp contrast with the image it projects internationally. For example, you probably haven’t heard of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the RSS. It is an right-wing, Hindu nationalist, paramilitary organization. The RSS, with its millions of members, exerts enormous influence and power in India. Its political party is the BJP, the Bharatiya Janata Party led...

19 Sep, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Our planet and humankind are in danger. The warnings coming from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres could not be more unambiguous. He says we are heading “towards an unlivable world. We are on a fast track to climate disaster. Major cities under water. Unprecedented heatwaves. Terrifying storms. Widespread water shortages. The extinction of a million species of plants and animals. This...
Nancy Fraser - Capitalism, COVID & the Climate Crisis
12 Sep, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Capitalism, COVID & the climate crisis are interconnected. Capitalism careens from one disaster to another. Its inequalities are grotesque. The pandemic is likely to take on new forms in the future. The climate emergency is all too obvious. The latest IPCC report, the UN agency on climate, makes for sobering reading. It warns that dire impacts from climate change will...
Henry Giroux – The Attack on Public Education
05 Sep, 2022 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

These are difficult times for public education. It is under political attack by what noted educator and scholar Henry Giroux calls the “apostles of authoritarianism.” Professor Giroux says, “Public schools, more than ever, are subject to the toxic forces of privatization and mindless standardized curricula while teachers are de-skilled and subject to intolerable labor conditions, not unlike Walmart workers. Unfortunately,...
Howard Zinn – Three Holy Wars
29 Aug, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The conventional view of U.S. wars follows a formulaic line: We are innocent victims of unprovoked attacks. The sleeping giant wakes and reluctantly goes to fight. All military action is imbued with benevolent intentions: human rights, democracy, and liberty. There are parades and flag-waving. Solemn ceremonies and gun salutes at funerals honor the fallen. But who asks for what and...
Howard Zinn - American Exceptionalism
22 Aug, 2022 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

In classic imperialist style, the U.S. exempts itself from the standards that it applies to others. This is a fundamental tenet of American exceptionalism. International law? Only for designated enemies, not for Washington and its vassals. Obey the master or face the consequences. Assassinations, sanctions, bombings, invasions and occupations are all tools of the empire to enforce its diktats. As...

Howard Zinn – Second Thoughts on the First Amendment
08 Aug, 2022 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

“Congress shall make no law…abridging freedom of speech.” There it is. Plain and simple. The First Amendment to the Constitution. But since 9/11 that amendment has been under sustained attack. Whistleblowers John Kiriakou, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, and others are hounded, threatened and imprisoned by the U.S. government. A fascinating and compelling account of past and present efforts...
Howard Zinn – A People’s History of the U.S., Part 2
01 Aug, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

"You wanna read a real history book?" Matt Damon asks Robin Williams in the movie Good Will Hunting. "Read Howard Zinn's People's History of the United States. That book'll knock you on your ass." It'll do that and more. Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States has sold more than 2 million copies. And it keeps on selling....
Vandana Shiva - Interconnectedness
18 Jul, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The corporate takeover of food with its toxic chemical inputs poses serious health and environmental problems. Corporate agriculture, The New York Times states unequivocally "is causing irreparable harm to the planet." It is "ravaging the air, soil and water, destroying wildlife habitats and spurring climate chaos. The system, a vast web of industries and processes that stretches from seed to...
Bill McKibben – Workable Solutions to the Climate Crisis
11 Jul, 2022 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change uses stark and dire language in its latest report. It says, “The cumulative scientific evidence is unequivocal: Climate change is a threat to human well-being and planetary health. Any further delay in concerted anticipatory global action on adaptation and mitigation will miss a brief and rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a...
John Mearsheimer - Causes and Consequences of the Ukraine War
04 Jul, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has triggered the most dangerous international conflict in decades with ominous implications. It has already resulted in much death, destruction and displacement in Ukraine. A disruption in food supplies may lead to famine in West Asia, Latin America and Africa. And there is a possibility of the war escalating into something unthinkable. Understanding the root...
Michael Parenti - Imperialism
27 Jun, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Imperialism is a term not applied by the mainstream media and traditional academics to anything the U.S. does. However, it is liberally applied to contemporary enemies or hoary empires of the past. Michael Parenti defines imperialism “as the process whereby the rulers of one country use economic and military power to expropriate the land, labor, markets and natural resources of...
Noam Chomsky - Chronicles of Dissent
20 Jun, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

In his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” Dr. King memorably said, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” Our present precarious circumstances make Dr. King’s words abundantly clear. We face war, climate chaos, a pandemic, inequality, hunger and poverty. The perils confronting humankind are...

Frank Smyth – The NRA Unmasked
06 Jun, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Gun violence exacts an enormous toll on U.S. society-claiming tens of thousands of lives every year. Many more thousands are wounded and scarred physically and psychologically. From malls to schools from places of worship to concerts there is no safe space. Weapons of war are easily obtainable. We have the spectacle of armed militias in combat gear roaming state houses,...
Arundhati Roy - Fascism & Resistance in India
30 May, 2022 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Fascism in India? It’s a secular republic, according to its constitution but the country under its prime minister Narender Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party, the BJP, has drifted sharply to the religious right. The BJP ideology is Hindutva, Hindu nationalism. Its mother ship, and its muscle, is the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the RSS. It’s a Hindu nationalist paramilitary organization,...

Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision which established a constitutional right to abortion is under attack. The Supreme Court with its super-conservative majority is poised to overturn Roe. According to an editorial in Against the Current: “Poll after poll reveals that the right to abortion care actually has more popular support today than when Roe v. Wade...

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The future of work is unclear. There will be jobs. But what kind? The pandemic drove many to work remotely at home. As the crisis ebbs some will discover that’s the future. Crucial long-term factors affecting workers will be more and more AI, artificial intelligence, and automation. Corporations will be looking to expand in those areas to maximize profits. This...
