The falsehood of single issue politics

Air date: 
Fri, 02/12/2016 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
No single issue is the most important.

To gain real social change towards a more just world, we need to understand and embrace the complexities we face.  

 
The more we can see how  oppressions interrelate, the better our understanding of strategies to end those oppressions.  In a world of intersectionality, identity politics are woefully inadequate. 
 
Please join Lyn and Ani as we consider how this is playing out in the Presidential campaigns, and in the coverage of them. We will be checking out sexism and looksism in the coverage of the election, and oh, so much more.

The crusaders in suits who are the real threat to public lands like the Malheur Bird Sanctuary
Now that the last of the Malheur Marauders have been taken into custody, it's a good time to examine the bigger picture. The standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is really just the extremist edge of a growing anti-conservation crusade bent on dismantling crucial environmental protections and abolishing most federal land. The crusade involves more menacing figures than the disgruntled ranchers terrorized Harney County.

On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with environmental writer Jimmy Tobias about the crusaders in suits—the senators, the oil lobbyists, the right-wing legislators—who are the real threat to America's public lands.

New climate science shows some parts of the world will heat more than dangerous two degrees as soon as 2030. The Arctic has already heated more than that.

This means we can't burn as much fossil fuels as we've been told. Plus, the changes are not a gradual warming, but unstable weather and deadly heat waves. From Australia, Dr. Andy J. Pitman, co-author of a new study explains.

Counselor Jane DeForest speaks with host Paul O'Brien
Over half of marriages end in divorce. Why? While there are many factors in today's complex society and busy lifestyle, this is not a death sentence for your marriage or relationship. The good news is love is still alive and well, and can be cultivated and grown abundantly. A deeply committed relationship is where each partner is part of a whole that functions with security and respect, which also allows enough room for growth, creativity and passion. Through her work as an intuitive Jane DeForest helps analyze the “energy dynamic” between couples, then she helps each to shift their thinking and approach toward the marriage and their partner.

Hearts On Fire

In this world of evil and hatred one rarely gets the occassion to celebrate and honor the emotion called love. Valentine's Day was originally a commemoration of the Christian Saint Valentinus, but later on the concept gained a more romantic notion. It was during this time that Valentine's day was associated with courtly love that flourished all over Europe. Valentine's Day customs developed in early modern Britain and spread throughout America in the 19th century. 

Tune in Saturday my friend Matt will be here with his vinyl collection and we will celebrate St. Valentine's day Swing & Country style with songs of heartache and heartbrake.
