Democracy Here: Open Reservoirs and Governments

This edition of Democracy Here explores the difference between engineered- and informed consent of the governed using the context of Portland’s current plans to take open reservoirs off-line and replacing them with new underground storage tanks.

The plan to bury the reservoirs is controversial: the city says they are forced to spend a half a billion dollars in order to comply with a federal regulation, while citizen groups say that the water bureau is fast tracking projects to the same cozy consultants who wrote the regulation and that the water bureau could work more earnestly on obtaining relief.

Howard Zinn – Just & Unjust Wars (lecture)

Howard Zinn – Just & Unjust Wars (lecture)

From ancient Athens to 21st century America, the rhetoric is the same. When "the dogs of war" are set loose, there is a cascade of jingoistic platitudes and cliches. We want peace. When we fight a war, it is just. We are good. The enemy is evil. We are victims seeking justice. We are making the world safe for democracy. And if they were honest they'd add, We are making the world safe for lexical and moral hypocrisy. Erasmus, the great 16th century philosopher monk, said of war, "There is nothing more wicked, more disastrous, more widely destructive, more loathsome." He then added that war was useful to a government for it enabled it to extend its power over citizens.
