Movie Moles: "Reds"

program date: 
Mon, 04/23/2012

This program takes its name, “the Old Mole,” from Marx’s image for the Revolution that works underground and suddenly emerges into daylight where least expected.  The first revolution approaching what he had in mind was the October Revolution in Russia in 1917.  In 1981, Warren Beatty produced, directed, and starred in a blockbuster movie Reds about the period.  Our Movie Moles, Joe Clement and Jan Haaken see much to like in its portrayal of the period and the life of political commitment.  The two main protagonists, John Reed and Louise Bryant, lived and met in Portland.

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.

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.
