Occupy Malheur Psychology

program date: 
Mon, 01/11/2016

Jan Haaken and Tod Sloan discuss the occupation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. They consider the largely progressive history of occupation, often as a response to exhaustion of other attempts at redress, and usually entailing personal risk, as in occupations of segregated lunch counters, or the 1973 occupation of Wounded Knee by American Indian Movement activists. They note the potential overlap in outlook or rhetoric between some left and right perspectives on the value of the local, but that the underlying issues in the Malheur case have to do with narrow material interests, often coming down to the desire to privatize public lands. 13:24 minutes (6.14 MB)

Two anti-regulatory bills were approved in House yesterday and today along strongly bipartisan lines.
The HB 1155, known as the SCRUB Act, and HB 712, known as the Sunshine for Deregulatory Decrees and Settlements Act, were approved by the Republican majority en-route to a likely death in the Senate and certain veto by President Obama.
However, both bills represent a strong deregulatory zeitgeist on the right, and have strong backing from industrial lobbyists.
For more, KBOO reporter Sam Bouman spoke with Amit Narang, a regulatory policy advocate with Public Citizen, a consumer watchdog group based in Washington, DC.
