Short Description: 
Yes, there really is a vast conservative conspiracy. Abe and Joe look at ALEC.

 In the early 1970s, a group of conservative lawmakers and businesspeople realized that synchronicity between the governments of different states was the path to ideological supremacy. The American Legislative Exchange Council -- ALEC -- was born. The group "assists" state legislators -- many of whom constitute ALEC's membership -- to draft legislation that downsizes government, removes corporate regulations, and makes it harder to hold wealthy miscreants to account.

Michael Parenti speaks on "The Pathology of Wealth"

Michael Parenti speaks on "The Pathology of Wealth" (lecture)

As the planet moves closer to environmental catastrophe, the captains of industry, the robber barons of the age, could hardly be bothered. They have more important matters to consider. Making money. And they better be on the ball and deliver those dividends because if they don’t they will soon be replaced. Profits uber alles is the guiding mantra. Environment. Schvironment. It gets in the way. Sure they’ll recycle paper and glass but forget about doing anything substantial. Pursuing new corporate earning opportunities and wealth accumulation are in capitalism’s DNA. The owners of the economy, the 1%, are operating from the tar sands in Alberta to fracking in Pennsylvania.

Movie Moles: Finally Got The News

program date: 
Mon, 04/02/2012

 Laurie Mercier and Denise Morris talk about the 1970 documentary "Finally Got The News" (re-released and available to view for free online HERE), produced in association with the League for Revolutionary Black Workers. The League was wary of the film at first, worried it would compromise their organizing efforts in Detroit, but the film-makers promised to make it education and not journalistic. It directs its marxist message to black workers and not white college kids, and to that end focuses on the role and power of the black worker in the American economy.

Kristian Williams on Treyvon Martin, Capitalism and the Culture of Fear

program date: 
Mon, 04/02/2012

Bill Resnick talks with Kristian Williams, Portland-resident and renknown scholar of policing and police history, about the murder of Treyvon Martin. Kristian re-caps the case and those like it, but also comments on the nature of the "stand your ground" laws that have been invoked to shield George Zimmerman. He contends that simply attacking those laws misses deeper problems, namely how these laws arise out of already racialized understandings of crime, law and order. They end on a note about this culture of fear, which Kristian thinks we can overcome if we see that people's needs are met, so they don't feel there are "others" out there trying to take them.
