Is This What Democracy Looks Like?

Categories:

Words can be used to communicate ideas between people, to describe things we can't point to.  Words can also be used to separate and manipulate.  This happens in our media all the time.  Remember when the prior administration talked about "spreading democracy"?  

This was a divisive choice of words - some of us think - hooray! spreading democracy! pass the popcorn!  to others, sounds a little like cultural imperialism.

Implicit in this phrase is the assumption that we own democracy.  in a way, in a global sense, we do - the US has the ability to more or less define who has it, who does it, what does it mean.  

In remembrance of independence day, We the People questions our right to use this term - by co-opting it, molding it, dissecting it, refining it, perhaps obliterating it.

Why? because one use for mass media is to help us understand our world.  And some think that an informed populace required for a functioning democracy.  So if you and I can't even agree on the terms, how are we supposed to build this thing together? and maybe when we look at "mob rule" "one man one vote"  who knows, maybe we won't even want it.

We are inviting listeners to write a two paragraph mini-essay answering the following questions:  

What is the definition of democracy?

Does the US measure up?  

We'll read them on the air, and discuss it with our listeners on June 25th for We the People's Independence Day show.

Death Threat aimed at Joe Uris

program date: 
Tue, 06/02/2009

 One of this week's topics for discussion was the recent murder of Dr. Tiller, a Women's Health Professional that provided abortions when they were needed.  The idea that killing health care providers could be considered a form of domestic terrorism came up, and apparently really angered one of our listeners.  Someone called in, identified himself as "Joe", and threatened to kill Joe Uris for bringing the topic to the table.

The threat and obscenity did not go out over the air, as the FCC would not allow that, but it is included here to foster discussion.
