The panelists will discuss and critique political and ideological falsehoods and fabrications in the continuing Cold War waged by the U.S. and NATO against Russia--both historical anti-communism and the more intense lies in the current antagonism in the US drive for global hegemony.

Radio Curious: Richard Brodie – How Ideas Travel , Segment 1

3 months ago
The Virus of the Mind The developing field of science called the science of memetics is based on evolution, studies memes: how they interact, replicate, and evolve. The biological definition of a meme is a basic unit of cultural transmission. The psychological definition of a meme is a unit of cultural heredity analogous to the gene, the internal representation of knowledge. A working definition of a meme is a unit of information in a mind whose existence influences events such that more copies of itself get created in other minds. “The Virus of the Mind” is a book devoted to the study of memetics and memes and was written by Richard Brodie, who also was a writer of the first version of Microsoft Word. He was our guest for this edition of Radio Curious that was originally broadcast in July of 1996. We began when I asked him what is the importance of studying memetics. Richard Brodie recommends “The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition into the Forces of History” by Howard Bloom. Originally Broadcast: July 31, 1996

Sea Change Radio: Dan Austin: 88Bikes, Segment 1

3 months ago
A generation ago, the dream of owning a bicycle was one shared by a vast number of American kids. While the explosion of competitors like video games and iPhones may have somewhat tempered that youthful enthusiasm for bikes in this country, there are still millions of children in developing nations who can only begin to imagine having their very own bicycle. This week’s guest on Sea Change Radio, Dan Austin, is in the business of fulfilling those dreams for kids from Belgrade to Calcutta. He talks about his philanthropic nonprofit 88Bikes, the problem his organization is trying to solve and the unique way it puts donors directly in touch with recipients. Then, we dig into the Sea Change Radio archives to discuss ways to tackle homelessness in this country with San Francisco City Supervisor Rafael Mandelman.

Taylor Report: Raptors and the NBA Sports-Wash Tyrant Kagame, Segment 1

3 months ago
Many scratch their heads trying to understand why the management of the NBA champion Toronto Raptors are zealously working to promote their association with President Paul Kagame of Rwanda. Those people are forgetting that the billionaire owners of America's sports monopolies are cheek-by-jowl with the US military and naturally do what they can to further the interests of the empire.

Latin Waves : interviews author/activist Wayne Roberts , Segment 1

3 months ago
Host Sylvia Richardson interviews Wayne Roberts on how traditional customs around food can bridge division in our society. There is a growing understanding of the importance of a “whole of government” approach and an inclusive “whole of society” perspective on the world. To that, Dr. Wayne Roberts add a “whole of economy,” a “whole of food” and a “whole of policy” as well as a “whole of human personality” perspective. All together, they become a whole new way of thinking about the role of food in the city. Sep 20th Workshop in Vancouver http://trk.cp20.com/click/cige-18vsh3-khd1i7-5jvehxj8/

TUC Radio: Daniel Ellsberg - The Doomsday Machine - Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner (One of Two), Segment 2

3 months ago
The international journalist Robert Fisk wrote in the British Independent in August 2019 that we should have paid more attention to the anniversaries of Hiroshima and Nagasaki since India, Pakistan, Israel, Iran and the US are currently - quote - “Rattling the Nuclear Cage” — and Donald Trump has just pulled out of the Cold War Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia. When this program was broadcast first in early 2018 Donald Trump’s serial threats of destruction on North Korea had also heightened the risk of nuclear war - and the Seattle anti nuclear movement invited Daniel Ellsberg for an on stage discussion about nuclear winter, staggering death tolls and how terrifyingly easy it is to set off such a war. Ellsberg had just been able to publish his most recent book: The Doomsday Machine, Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner. He had been unable to find a publisher. In 1961 Ellsberg consulted for the Department of Defense and the White House and drafted Secretary Robert McNamara’s plans for nuclear war. He discovered then that the authority to initiate use of nuclear weapons had been widely delegated. If the secret plans for general nuclear war under Eisenhower had been executed, Ellsberg wrote, they would have caused the near-extinction of humanity. He now says that US nuclear strategy has not fundamentally changed since the eras of late Eisenhower and early Kennedy. Ellsberg says that the legacy of this most dangerous arms buildup in the history of civilization--and its proposed renewal under the Trump administration--threatens our survival. The US is now planning on spending $1-1.6 trillion on nuclear weapons in the next 30 years. Ellsberg spoke at Town Hall in Seattle on January 9, 2018. He was recorded by Mike McCormick of Talking Stick TV

Class War Battlefield Podcast: Episode 2019.03. American's Domestic Terrorists Become Obvious to the Media, Segment 1

3 months ago
What is the legal definition of terrorism? If you look through the United States Codes, you find the answer to that question. If you’d like to clarify the answer, by limiting the definition to domestic terrorism, the answer you’ll receive is less encouraging. The United States codes do not distinguish the difference between domestic and international terrorism, in fact U.S law doesn’t define domestic terrorism at all, leaving any inquirers to draw conclusions from their thorough definition of international terrorism. This is a topic I cover in today’s episode, alongside looking at the devastating fear that is mounting throughout this country. A fear that is creating negative psychic energy, which if allowed to fester, will result in a devastating explosion of violence.

Taylor Report: Trade is War: The West's War Against the World, Segment 1

3 months ago
Political economist Yash Tandon discusses the growing fissures and fractures in the U.S.-dominated global economy. The U.S. increasingly relies on coercive measures, such as sanctions, trade wars, and abuse of "intellectual property rights" to maintain its pre-eminence. Yet it's still on its way out. China's economic rise is providing a counterweight to America's 'New World Order,' especially for Africans. NATO's imperial overreach in Libya provided a wake-up call to African leaders. The countries of the Global South are coming to recognize the need to unite, despite differences, and resist the economic diktat of U.S./European imperialism.
