Michael Eric Dyson – Chaos or Community?
17 Jan, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

In his 1967 book Where Do We Go From Here? Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr wrote these prophetic words: “A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. The oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today....
Chris Hedges - Q&A on American Sadism
03 Jan, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The great 20th century Irish poet William Butler Yeats wrote, "We had fed the heart on fantasies, The heart’s grown brutal from the fare." The United States has long fed its heart with fairy tales about itself. Hardly a day goes by without some new story being spun about our noble intentions, benevolence and devotion to international law. Sadism is...

Jenny Brown – Women: Labor Pains
13 Dec, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Reproductive rights and abortion are under sustained political attack. Texas, Mississippi and other states have passed highly restrictive laws limiting and, in some cases, eliminating access to abortion. In all, nearly 600 anti-abortion laws have been introduced. The Supreme Court, with its three Trump-appointed justices, seems poised to decimate if not overturn the Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which...
Vijay Prashad – Radical Views from the Global South
06 Dec, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The concept of Global North and Global South are not geographical terms but rather describe a grouping of countries along economic lines. The Global South, previously called the Third World, is a term used to identify lower-income countries on one side of the so-called divide, the other side being the countries of the Global North with its enormous wealth and...
Harriet Fraad - Patriarchy & Capitalism
29 Nov, 2021 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Denise Comanne, a prominent French feminist/activist wrote, “The oppression of women is very ancient: it existed before capitalism, which is also a system of oppression, but one that is more global in nature. Patriarchy can be defined in simple terms as the oppression and objectification of women by men. In addition to its strictly economic form, this oppression is expressed...
Roxanne Dunbar-Ortíz – The Other Side of Thanksgiving
22 Nov, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The historical lens through which national holidays are viewed is often blurred and distorted. Thanksgiving is a case in point. The much-revered Pilgrims fresh off the Mayflower sat down and shared native foods with the friendly Wampanoags. A heart-warming story. But this idea of the gift-giving Indian, helping to establish and enrich what would become the United States, is a...
Dr. Stephen Bezruchka - Social Murder & Covid-19
15 Nov, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The concept of social murder was introduced in the mid-19th century. The German philosopher Friedrich Engels coined the phrase in describing the political and social power held by ruling elites over laborers in England. Engels wrote about poor workers dying prematurely. Today, during the current pandemic, the term has been revived. The British Medical Journal says, “Social murder may describe...
Chris Hedges – The Prison Plantation System
08 Nov, 2021 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1865 officially abolished slavery. However, there is a crucial legal exception. Section 1 of the Amendment provides: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." In plain English, this...
Jeff Chester & Kathryn Montgomery - Commercial Surveillance Culture
01 Nov, 2021 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Tim Berners-Lee, the founder of the World Wide Web, once described the internet as a "permissionless space for creativity, innovation and free expression." In the early days, you may recall, the internet was also called the “information superhighway.” It would be open, free and with no advertising. It hasn’t quite worked out that way. Tech giants like Facebook and Google...
Angela Davis & Ruth Wilson Gilmore - Radical Lessons: Then & Now
25 Oct, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The 1960s have been largely romanticized and commodified. The Beatles, Woodstock, sit-ins, protests, and marches. Those years saw huge social change. Bottom-up grassroots movements rocked the establishment. A major symbol of those years was Angela Davis. She has this to say today: “The lesson is that even though we don't have the same structures that we had at that time,...
James Loewen - History Textbooks: Facts or Fiction?
18 Oct, 2021 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

There’s a famous quote in George Orwell’s 1984: “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” Orwell understood how important knowledge of history is and how it can be manipulated by the powerful to serve their interests. If the past disappears down the memory hole society is at risk. History is not some neutral...

Chalmers Johnson - Blowback: Impacts of the New Militarism
04 Oct, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The CIA coined the term “blowback” to describe the unintended results of U.S. covert operations abroad. It was first used in connection with Operation Ajax, the Agency’s 1953 coup in Iran overthrowing the democratic government of Mohammad Mossadegh. The United States today has hundreds of military bases around the world. It’s a form of domination that greatly expanded under the...
Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor – Black Liberation

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The widespread protests in the wake of the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor marked a new chapter in the struggle for Black liberation. What would constitute Black liberation? Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor says it’s about self-determination. “Can we make decisions free of economic coercion? Can we make decisions that are truly free? That to me is what liberation would be....
Eqbal Ahmad - Terrorism: Theirs & Ours
06 Sep, 2021 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Terrorism is the scourge of the era. It is a fearsome symbol conjuring up images of ferocious-looking, bearded men brandishing AK-47s. The media focus on the terrorism of official enemies like Saddam Hussein, bin Laden, and Zarqawi. After they were done away with, new demons appear to justify war and bloat the Pentagon budget. Be afraid of ISIS and Al...

The digital age has given birth to hackers who carry out cyberattacks on our personal data, our pipelines, energy grids and meat processing plants.

Howard Zinn - American Exceptionalism
16 Aug, 2021 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

A fundamental tenet of American exceptionalism is the U.S. exempts itself from the standards that it applies to others. 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 George H. W. Bush once...
