Subversion #1312: Cops, drugs and Rock , Segment 1

1 month ago
Anarchists are opposed to the police because their primary purpose is to protect the interests of the owners of capital and the state. On S1312 we regularly report on police misconduct and brutality because the poor, working class, vulnerable and minorities are targeted most by the police. We/they are victims of police violence, and misconduct at a much higher rate than the rest of society. There's never any shortage of stories for our Bad Cop Not Donut segment, and this entire sedition is reporting on the police.

The Alembic Files: Your Life is Their Toy - Part 7, Segment 1

1 month ago
Health and life are man's most precious possessions; and anxiety to preserve them is natural. It is not surprising, therefore, that they have been exploited since time immemorial. Every age has had its charlatans, quacks and medicine men. Much in the same measure as social organization has attained its highest pitch in the present era, the exploitation of health and life today has reached its zenith. Never before in history has there arisen such an extensive conspiracy about the problem of public health of entire nations, involving well-organized, opposing political and commercial groups. The consequence of this welter of exploitation is the sacrifice of human comfort, happiness, health and life. --Emanuel Josephson, 1941, "Your Life is Their Toy."

1 month ago
In the September 2018 Tax Justice Network monthly podcast/radio show, the Taxcast: we talk to journalist Oliver Bullough about his new book, just out ‘Moneyland: why thieves and crooks now rule the world, and how to take it back’ We discuss the transnational elite that have broken free of democratic control and corruption contagion. Also, 10 years after the financial crash, the risks are as high as before, if not more severe – how do we tackle the next crisis? Plus, the fifth aide of US President Trump has now been convicted of, or admitted criminal charges: what does Paul Manafort’s case tell us about the spread of plutocracy and oligarchy?
