Exploring fear and loathing on the Populist Right with Arthur Goldwag

Its no surprise that the confluence of the internet and the 24-hour news cycle has enabled extreme groups once relegated to the fringe of American politics to enjoy unprecedented influence on political discourse. The paranoia and scapegoating of today's Tea Party, however, reflect a disturbing pattern in our history that fueled hysteria about the Illuminati of the 1790s, anti-New Deal forces of the 1930s, and McCarthyism of the 1950s. What is new about the "new hate" is its ability to project itself and the willingness of politicians to exploit it for their own purposes.

Well-read Red: The Spectacular President's Role in Electoral Theater

program date: 
Mon, 02/20/2012

Well-read Red, Clayton Morgareidge, comments on the spectacle of electoral politics, the presidency itself, and how voting is over-rated as a form of social action when so much that matters is decided, when addressed at all, by other means and to other ends. The presidential election is a reality TV-show as irrelevant to our lives as the gossip on Jersey Shore, Chris Hedges argues and Clayton reads, while the debates fomented by the Occupy movment about inequality, corporate malfeasance, the destruction of the ecosystem, and the security/surveillance state are the only ones that matters right now.

Host Lisa Loving speaks with Susan Herman about her new book “Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy” which takes a hard look at the human and social costs of the War on Terror. A decade after 9/11, it is far from clear that the government's hastily adopted antiterrorist tactics--such as the Patriot Act--are keeping us safe, but it is increasingly clear that these emergency measures in fact have the potential to ravage our lives--and have already done just that to countless Americans.
