The Michael Slate Show: Laura Briggs, Author of Taking Children, A History of American Terror; Vietnam Vet Mike Hastie, the Wall of Vets, Standing Up Against Trump in Portland, Segment 1

11 ore 7 minuti ago
Laura Briggs, Taking Children. For 400 years the United States has taken children for political ends. Black children, Native children, Latinx children, and the children of the poor. In chilling detail we see how Central Americans were made into a population that could be stripped of their children who would be put in Trumps concentration camps. Mike Hastie joined the protests in Portland, Oregon as part of the Wall of Vets. He was pepper-sprayed in the face by Trump's storm troopers.

Sea Change Radio: “Vertical Farmers Never Have To Pray For Rain”, Segment 1

18 ore 19 minuti ago
Nine years ago on Sea Change Radio, we spoke to the self-proclaimed founding father of vertical farming, Dickson Despommier, about the concept of moving crops onwards and upwards (literally). In an interesting twist, the global COVID pandemic has resulted in a lot of abandoned office buildings. To proponents of vertical farming, these spaces may represent unprecedented opportunity. We thought this seemed like a good time to revisit our original Sea Change Radio interview with Dr. Despommier, unedited, in its entirety. In fact, Dr. Despommier co-authored a paper just last week for the Proceedings for the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) titled "Wheat Yield Potential in Controlled-environment vertical farms." In the paper, the authors write that "although it is unlikely that indoor wheat farming will be economically competitive with current market prices in the near future, it could play an essential role in hedging against future climate or other unexpected disruptions to the food system." Now, let's go back to our interview from November 2011.

TUC Radio: Paul Grignon: Money as Debt (TWO of TWO)  Best of TUC, Segment 2

20 ore 35 minuti ago
This update of TUC Radio’s 2009 Film on Radio version opens up concepts for groundbreaking bank reform and explains three astounding quotes by American presidents: “All of the perplexities, confusion, and distress in America arises, not from the defects of the Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation.”
John Adams, Founding Father of the American Constitution “Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce … and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.”
James A. Garfield, assassinated president of the United States “The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of government, but it is the government’s greatest creative opportunity.”
Abraham Lincoln, assassinated president of the United States With over 2 million downloads between 2006 and 2009 and translated into 20 languages, the film has remained to this date one of the extraordinary teaching tools and inspiration for the monetary reform movement.

Class War Battlefield Podcast: Episode 2020.08.01 & 02. Intergenerational Conflict, AOC & The Scapegoat Generation, Segment 2

2 giorni 13 ore ago
Class War Battlefield Podcast Episode 2020.08.01 Intergenerational Conflict AOC Verbally Assaulted by Congressman, Generational Hatred on Display Time to face an uncomfortable truth, the older generation – really are not into the younger generation. For those not quite old enough to understand what this means, let me break it down into simple English; the older generation does not seem to like the younger generation. I came to this conclusion many years ago and found evidence overflowing in various books I read and documentaries I watched. Using this information as a backdrop, I explain why AOC’s encounter with the older, elder statemen revealed a generational hostility which was merely suggested previously. Now because some people don’t know how to not see statements as blanketed, let me say – NOT ALL BOOMERS FIT THIS MOLD – but I am starting to ponder if a majority who reside among the wealthiest class do fit the mold. Class War Battlefield Podcast Episode 2020.08.02 Intergenerational Conflict Scapegoat Generation Chronicles In the library, in a dusty area where very few like to visit because it requires you to think outside the ideological constructs created for this country by corporate marketeers who worked to create consumers out of citizens – see the documentary “Century of Self”. In that dusty area resides books that were written to explain why things where how they were and how one might see through the mist and fog towards understanding why people act as they do when in a crowd. In a bygone era many of these books would be labeled “crown psychology” books or “socio-economic” books or maybe even “political science” books; but today they just sit on the shelf marked “non-fiction” – for this reason they are forgettable. Digging into those books we find “Scapegoat generation” an interesting page turner which attempts to explain to the reader why the modern generation (from the 90s) is in bad shape and how their bad shape is often blamed on them. This episode is inspired by, though not based on the context in, that book.

Class War Battlefield Podcast: Episode 2020.07. Financial Cliff Here We Come, Segment 1

2 giorni 13 ore ago
I knew this yearlong decade wouldn’t pass without significant economic turmoil. Yes – yes, I call this year, 2020, a yearlong decade because I swear each month represents a full year. Before telling me I’m crazy, really think about what’s happened over the last six months and tell me if time doesn’t seem to have a multiplier engrained into it this year? That aside, yes there is a fiscal cliff coming and we, the wonderful consumers of America are getting hosed good. How could a Senate refuse to pass much needed relief to a population in desperate straights before leaving town? How could a House pass a bill in May providing all the relief necessary for the population, only to have it die due to ideological alignments? I know the modern appetite among Progressives is to beat up Democrats no matter what they do, a sentiment I truthfully don’t mind because they are a pretty horrible corporation – I mean Political Party LLC, but here the Democrats did their job and the Republicans didn’t. For this reason we are heading for a terrifying economic cliff that will impact our society for at least the next 10 years (God help us if each of those ten years are as long as this one).
