Creating the world anew-- the spirit of revolution

Categories:
program date: 
Fri, 11/06/2009

Ani Raven Haines hosts a discussion of revolutionary thought and radical social change.

Remember, remember the fifth of November
The gunpowder, treason and plot

I see no reason the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot

So goes the rhyme that commemorates the actions of Guy Fawkes, who attempted to blow up Parliament in 1605.  Fawkes was part of a radical Catholic group, that were seeking to displace Protestant rule.  In England, bonfires are lit on November 5th, and Guy Fawkes is still burnt in effigy, four hundred plus years after the original attempt. 

As social change activists, I think that one of our biggest challenges is not recreating the oppressive structures in the new world we make together.  How do we utterly change the dynamic of hierarchy and oppression, leaving them behind in the world falling around us?

Listeners called in with their experiences of engaging social change, and thoughts on creating the new world together. There is a lot to say on this subject, so let's continue this discussion online! Read my blog here, and participate in the conversation by leaving your comments.

Robert Jensen: All My Bone Shake

program date: 
Thu, 05/07/2009

Ani welcomes back long time activist, author and professor Robert Jensen, to Positively Revolting Talk Radio.

In Jensen's latest book, All My Bones Shake: Seeking a Progressive Path to the Prophetic Voice, he argues that in a world racked with political, economic, cultural, and ecological crises, there is a spiritual emptiness that encourages further alienation.

Can religion be a tool with which we may create closer ties to all humanity and begin to create a just and sustainable society? What part can religion play to help us face with confidence the uncertainty of our lives. How can we overcome our addiction to hierarchy?

Jensen's writings explore the important questions: What does it mean to be human? What are our obligations to other people and the non-human world?

 

Robert Jensen is a professor at the University of Texas at Austin School of Journalism, where he teaches courses in media law, ethics, and politics. Jensen also serves as the director of the university’s Senior Fellows Honors Program of the College of Communication. Since joining the UT faculty in 1992, Jensen has published four critical books on media and power: Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity (South End Press, 2007); The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism and White Privilege (City Lights, 2005); Citizens of the Empire: The Struggle to Claim Our Humanity (City Lights, 2004).

this morning's program: host & speaker

I am a daily KBOO listener; however, while todays speaker while speaking from the heart regarding her dismay over the Afganistan theater of war, she makes vague statements, with great emotion, but few references to facts, which could easily be woven into her statements to make them more illuminating, it would give more power to her rally cries. Tt feels as though I am simply listening to hyperbole LIKE ON CREEPY FOX NEWS!  The Hosts of the program, similarly, are never probing or asking for clarification of the important issue, an important question to probe is: "why ARE we there?".  This program is dithering, and the speaker is bland, unconvincing of any knowledge base, boring, 10th rate.  Additionally, this is typical of the "Positively Revolting" hour, I usually never tune in when I know these two hosts will be on, bcs. it is never a provoking program, it rarely reveals or provides any new information about anything.  If this program has to continue to be on at all, consider putting it on late at night....it is pablum. 

Good Sista' Bad Sista' on the other hand was a great relief for me on Friday morning's programing, those women are sharp, witty and smart. 

Do not dumb us down with this progam "Positively Revolting", it is a zero.

Pay Equality

I recently heard the argument that the pay differential between men and women is actually fair. This idea is based on the situation of women living longer than men but work the same period of time. This argument claims that the total difference of pay between men and women equals the cost of additional medical care spent for women in their senior years.

For example, let's say a man and a woman work the same number of years (about 40), in the same job with the same responsibilities, and the man makes 10% more than the woman. Say that the job pays (in constant dollars) an average of $30,000 over the forty years. The man makes $1.2 million over this period and the woman makes $1.08 million.

The difference is $120,000. Now at age 60, a man will generally live to be 75 and a woman will live to be 85. Most medical expenses are incurred in the last ten years of live. These costs are paid mostly by public funds through MediCare. The pay_inequality_is_fair argument holds that this $120,000 pay differential is used by society to pay the additional medical expenses that women use and men don't.

I realize that this argument will float like a lead zeppelin on the Positively Revolting community. However, you may want to be aware of it so you don't get blindsided by it in a public debate on the issue.

Thank you,
Alan in Portland

Where did Ani go?

Where did Ani go? I miss her!

I'm here, honest

Hi there, Melodie and I are hosting alternating weeks on Friday mornings, now. I hope you had a chance to hear my program with Norman Solomon last Friday, 11/7, but if you didn't, you can hear it online-- there is a link to the audio on this program page. I will host again on the 21st. Thanks so much for listening! with love & solidarity, ani

woo hoo!

Glad you're still involved in the show. Thanks for all that you do for our community!

much love, m

Wow... How about some positive feedback?

I must have picked a good week to start listening to KBOO. My unhealthy addiction to KPOJ has been shaken. What stirred me to radio hop was the recent clubbing and scrubbing of morning show co-host Heidi Tauber.

Thankfully (along with news I'm not hearing elsewhere) I struck gold with back to back to back mornings of call in shows which were right up my avenue. On Wednesday Barbara Bernstein and friends of the 40 Mile Loop took me on a bike ride down memory lane. The next day, Dave and Jo Ann took on the very difficult but extremely important topic of race and justice in America. I found the candor of the hosts and callers-in to be a much needed breath of fresh air.

Yesterday was quite synergenic. I didn't think anything Positively Revolting would be my pint of brew, but the community of thought that came together was positively revolutionary. I'm still not entirely successful in finding joy amidst the madness, but the range of emotions I was able to experience during the show were a welcome departure from depression. Together we just may succeed... or at least, survive.

KBOO, I think I love U. (And Jeff always has sumpin' to say to go along with that sexy voice! I'm glad he seems to hop around the dial too.)
