Radio Curious: Gilbert, Ronnie, as “Mother Jones” – ‘The Most Dangerous Woman in America’, Segment 1

1 week 2 days ago
Mary Harris Jones, Mother Jones, was born in 1830. She lived a quiet, non-public life until she was approximately 47 years old and then, for almost the next fifty years, she was a fiery union organizer, strike leader, and fighter for safe and humane working conditions, the eight hour day, and child labor laws. Around the turn of the century, she was called the most dangerous woman in America. Her legacy has lived on in the form of a magazine that bears the name, Mother Jones; and in the form of a one-woman play about her life, produced, acted and written by singer and songwriter Ronnie Gilbert. Mother Jones recommends any books by Leo Tolstoy. Ronnie Gilbert recommends “Hawaii,” by James Mechiner. Originally Broadcast: March 12, 1997

Taylor Report: Freeland Echoed False Story Against Maduro, Segment 1

1 week 3 days ago
Recently returned from Venezuela, journalist and lawyer Dimitri Lascaris explains just how badly we have been misled about the crisis there. Maduro supporters did not burn aid, and that story was debunked more than a week ago. The government also did not suddenly close a border with Colombia, as was erroneously reported here in Canada. That border was closed well before the crisis. Lascaris also discusses the deeply debilitating effects of U.S. sanctions on Venezuela, a country which depends on oil exports for survival. It appears as if the U.S. objective is to cause enormous suffering among the most vulnerable, placing pressure on Venezuela's institutions. U.S. offers of 'humanitarian aid' are very deceptive in this context. Finally, Lascaris also investigates the maneuverings by the Lima Group to browbeat Latin American leaders into supporting Guaido.

The Alembic Files: The Ominous Parallels - 6, Segment 1

1 week 3 days ago
Summer 1919: "an orgy of anarchy and murder." The contest in the Weimar Assembly was the debate on the constitution, pitting the romanticist, nationalist groups, along with the transitional party of independent socialists who sought a proletarian dictatorship, versus the groups widely identified as the exponents of reason. These exponents were a coalition of half-hearted Marxists, dogmatic Catholics and quaking skeptics. Owing to other factors, the [opposing] groups may proliferate and may contend fiercely over variants, applications and strategy, but they do not contend over essentials. In such a case, the country is offered an abundance of choices among equivalents competing to push it to the same final outcome.

New World Notes: #575 -- Capitalism vs. Reality, Part 1 (R), Segment 1

1 week 4 days ago
In this recent-classic talk, political scientist MICHAEL PARENTI refutes the claim that the "free enterprise" system (capitalism) promotes democracy. Drawing on historical examples--from ancient Greece to the Constitutional Convention to the present day--Parenti shows how the capitalists fought democracy every step of the way--and continue to do so. Rather, democracy emerged, in fits and starts, from the struggles of average people to bring practical improvements to their lives.
