TUC Radio: Shoshana Zuboff: Surveillance Capitalism and Democracy Part ONE of TWO, Segment 2

2 weeks 5 days ago
Shoshana Zuboff is the author of The Age of Surveillance Capitalism. She reveals a world in which technology users are the raw material for new procedures of manufacturing and sales that define an entirely new economic order: a surveillance economy. Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything wrote: “From the very first page I was consumed with an overwhelming imperative: everyone needs to read this book as an act of digital self defense.” Robert Reich, author of Saving Capitalism for the Many, Not the Few wrote: Shoshana Zuboff’s … “sweeping analysis demonstrates the unprecedented challenge to human autonomy, social solidarity, and democracy by this rogue (surveillance) capitalism.” In the late 1990s TUC Radio’s studio was still located in the northeastern Mission industrial zone in San Francisco. Around me the dot com boom - beginning in 1995 - brought internet based companies from Silicon Valley to the neighborhood - pricing out the spanish speaking communities. Then, as I had found a new home for TUC Radio the dot com bubble burst in 2001. The new internet based companies had not yet learned how to make money with the many free services they were offering. But those who did survive, the Googles and FaceBooks etc. soon found out how to make money out of surveillance of the users and showed unprecedented rates of profit. Shoshana Zuboff begins her talk in Berlin, on November 6, 2019, by describing how it was done. Shoshana Zuboff is Professor Emerita at Harvard Business School.

Taylor Report: Build a Movement for Public Ownership and Socialism, Segment 1

2 weeks 5 days ago
NDP MP Niki Ashton and author Linda McQuaig will be leading a meeting in Toronto, Jan. 30, about public ownership. The closure of GM, Leah says, proved you can't protect jobs and save industries by coddling up to corporations. The Canadian government bailed out GM to the tune of 11 billion dollars during the 2008 financial crisis, and never repaid it all. UNIFOR workers gave concessions to GM to stay in Oshawa, as well as UNIFOR retirees who haven't received a cost-of-living increase in pensions since 2008. Green Jobs Oshawa calls for nationalizing GM Oshawa and producing electric vehicles.

Essential Dissent: Embassy Protection Collective - The People's Forum, NYC, Segment 1

2 weeks 6 days ago
The four arrested Venezuelan Embassy Protectors - Kevin Zeese, Margaret Flowers, Adrienne Pine and David Paul - were on an East Coast speaking and fundraising tour from January 24 to January 28, 2020. They are facing trials on the trumped-up charge of "interfering with certain protective functions" of the government for their heroic effort to prevent the transfer of the Venezuelan Embassy to a minority leader illegally appointed by the U.S. government as President of Venezuela. This is a misdemeanor charge that carries a maximum of one-year imprisonment and a $100,000 fine each. The judge has already denied them the ability to present vital evidence in their defense. During the hearing, she referred to the embassy protectors as a "gang," and stated that the facts supported their guilt. She made it clear a trial will result in their conviction, and promptly made rulings that will ensure that outcome.

Taylor Report: Canada and friends put on colonial hat for Iran, Segment 1

3 weeks ago
Phil Taylor and Phil Conlon discuss the importance of attending the anti-war demonstrations on January 25th, and then discuss the problem of NATO. Letting NATO manage West Asia instead of the U.S. is like letting Uncle Sam's left-hand run something instead of the right-hand. Remarkably, after Trump's aggression against Iran, the European Union states are acting more hostile to Iran than before. Having heeded the call of their master, the European leadership has become more adversarial not only towards Iran, but to Iraq as well. Phil also describes how the Trump administration tore up the JCPOA, and yet 'the West' demands Iran continue to restrict itself under the deal nonetheless. There is a lot to say, as well, about how Canada is addressing the Islamic Republic of Iran.

This Week In Palestine: Joseph Massad on "Trump's Deal Of The Century", Segment 1

3 weeks ago
Our featured speaker today is Joseph Massad, one of our clearest and most articulate voices. Massad discusses "Trump's Deal of the Century: the Final Phase of the Oslo Accords." Here's an informal summary of the "deal": (1) the PLO, or now, PA is designated as the sole representative of all Palestinians, of course snuffing out Hamas and all dissenters; then (2) in "exchange" for a devastating package of even more crippling one-sided concessions by the PA, all remaining Palestinian hopes for a viable future (not to mention equal rights) are simply extinguished forever, thus achieving "peace"! Before Massad's talk, we report on the Israel Lobby's continued efforts to punish or prohibit BDS or Palestine support or even an honest discussion of Israel's deadly oppression of Palestinians, particularly at universities. They continue to succeed in the enactment, temporarily, of blatantly unconstitutional laws with this goal.
