John Feffer on infrastructure divestment and ecological collapse

program date: 
Mon, 04/14/2014
Bill Resnick talks with John Feffer about "homegrown terrorism". In particular, they consider how looming ecological catastrophe is exacerbated by years of divestment in our various forms of infrastructure --- transportation, sewage and water systems, food-systems, energy -- and how this is being driven by big business interests. They also call into question the way natural and other resources are exhausted as quickly as possible and technocratic fixes are championed as picking up the slack when their absence is felt. They end by talking about grassroot movements that are fighting to change the focus of government to public infrustructure and goods, and John makes the case for why "government is the bad guy" thwarts these efforts in the US.
