Reflections on the event that happened Sunday in Portland, and call-ins from around the region

An enthusiastic and well-attended "Bioregional Confluence" in Portland this past Sunday brought together people from around Cascadia to meet and attend panels on a wide range of subjects. At lunch, the assembly brought back to life, after many years without a Bioregional gathering in this region, the tradition of regional or "watershed" reportbacks. Some of those attending will call in with the issues they are working on in their areas. Listeners who attended or who have issues of their own they are working on are encouraged to call in at 503-231-8032. We hope to make this at least a semi-regular feature of KBOO Public Affairs programming.

Reform or Revolution? continued

Air date:

Short Description: 
Hosted by Paul Roland.

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.
