Susan Herman on “Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy"

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.

The Media's Role in the Fate of the World

Host Lisa Loving speaks with Maria Armoudian about her new book "Kill the Messenger: The Media's Role in the Fate of the World," an in-depth examination of the media's power to help or harm.

What role do the media have in creating the conditions for atrocities in areas of conflict? Conversely, can the media be used to preserve democracy and safeguard the human rights of all citizens in a diverse society? How will the media affect the fate of the planet itself.

How does the media interact with psychological and cultural forces to impact perceptions, fears, peer-pressure, "groupthink," and the creation of heroes and villains?

Literacy programs at Multnomah County Library

It used to be that literacy was a question of: can you read or can't you?

Tune in and call 503-231-8187 with your stories about the issue, plus find out how you can help increase literacy in your community. Wednesday at 8am on 90.7 FM, KBOO.

Reform or Revolution? continued

program date: 
Wed, 04/02/2014
Once a hot topic of passionate discussion, the question "Reform or Revolution?" seems to have lost its relevance and punch. Sounds kinda quaint and archaic. Does "Revolution" mean anything in the age of Portlandia? Can we imagine anything outside the box of constituted legal institutions? Can we yet shake ourselves from our mental conditionintg and feelings of powerlessness and detachment in the face of accelerating Disaster? Can we find common ground despite the hyper-individualization we've been socialized into? My God, doesn't anyone care??? Sorry, got carried away. Well, tune in and if you've got something to say, call in. 503-231-8187.
