TUC Radio: Michael Parenti, The Supremely Political Court, Segment 2

1日 8時間 ago
In his extraordinary 26 minute history of the Supreme Court Dr. Michael Parenti warned us in 1995 that this partisan, aristocratic institution might one day empower an autocratic president. It seems that time has come and two Trump appointees, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, can push the scales of justice in favor of their politics. Unless there is a groundswell to question and change the legal rules of that institution. Why is so much power being given to 9 unelected, non term limited judges. Michael Parenti was born into a working class Italian family in East Harlem, New York City. He went on to receive his Ph.D. in political science at Yale in 1962. His academic career was cut short by his dismissal after he was arrested for protesting the US war on Vietnam. Parenti became an independent scholar, lecturer and author. And he remained an activist as well. Over 20 years ago Parenti already pointed to the role of the court in concentrating wealth in the top 1 percent, and the way in which the Supreme Court expanded the power of corporations and laid the groundwork for what later became the Citizens United ruling of 2009. And most dangerously, how the Supreme Court began to give power to the president in matters of foreign policy and national security that neither Congress nor the Constitution had granted. Parenti said: “... by Judicial Fiat the President could now do whatever he wanted in the absence of specific legislative prohibitions.” The Supremely Political Court is part of the series: Democracy What Went Wrong , how the CIA, media, corporations, universities, police and the Supreme Court are threatening democracy and what might be done to meet challenge. The original series was produced by TUC radio in 1995.

Radio Curious: Dr. Ron Epstein- Genetically Modified Food , Segment 1

1日 11時間 ago
Genetically engineered food products are an issue that concerns many. In more recent years, Mendocino County has gone so far as to pass a resolution legally prohibiting their growth in the county. My guest in this program, recorded in the late summer of 1995, is Ron Epstein, a philosophy professor at both the Buddhist University in Talmage, CA and San Francisco State University. He has given considerable consideration to the problems of genetic engineering of the plants and vegetables that we eat. Dr. Ron Epstein recommends “Algeny,” by Jeremy Rifkin.

Sea Change Radio: Amy Harder: Investments in Nuclear Power + Plastics, Segment 1

1日 12時間 ago
If you had a million dollars what would you do with it? OK, now what if it were $100 billion? Today on Sea Change Radio, we are talking with Amy Harder, environment and climate reporter for Axios, about where some titans of industry are investing their money and the environmental impact it might have. You might be surprised to learn, for example, that Bill Gates has been pouring some of his considerable wealth into the nuclear energy sector. Harder recently interviewed Gates about his estimated half a billion dollar investment into TerraPower. She tells us about that as well as the big bets that companies like Exxon Mobil are making on ethane, a petrochemical by-product that is used to produce plastic.

Cuba to the Rescue , Segment 1

2日 8時間 ago
Javier Cabrera discusses Cuba’s community environmental education program, and its programs to combat climate change. He explains how the US blockade of Cuba, has undermined joint efforts begun under the Obama Administration to transfer Cuba’s expertese in preparing for climate driven disaster and the attending cultural and economic change through comprehensive planing toward human sustainable development. There was a lively Q&A along with announcements of an International Climate Strike on September 20th and 27th, and an International gathering this Fall in Southern Illinois to plan for a popular response to Trump's and dominant Corporations malfeasance, actually criminal malfeasance, for failing to prepare for a sustainable future for us all and blocking the efforts of others in order to perpetuate the neoliberal life blind profit system. The current blockade has increased U.S. vulnerability to the growing climate crisis by ending the cooperative efforts which he speaks of. Universities, perhaps due to their co option by neoliberal business ideology have failed both their students and society in failing to prepare them to understand and deal with what is now an existential threat; a point also made by Harvard climate scientist James Anderson when he gave the 2018 Benton Lecture at the University of Chicago. That failure has hobbled planers and public administrators as well as citizens. Cuba has recognized that we are all facing the same threat, even though its nature will vary with location. Their project in part prepares planers and officials to deal with the local particulars of their communities with a holistic approach.

Reportback from the U.S.- Mexico border, Segment 1

2日 9時間 ago
Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) - Chicago hosted an event with reports from two recently completed historic delegations. At the end of March, the Legalization for All Network organized a week-long delegation to the U.S.-Mexico border, to see firsthand the brutal white supremacist actions of the Trump government and the resistance led by the local people. Chicago USPCN chapter member, Husam Marajda, reported on his participation in trip to the U.S.-Mexico border in which he made the connections between the struggle at the Southern border and the borders imposed on Palestinians by the the state of Israel. For May Day, FRSO sent a group of comrades to Venezuela, to meet with members of the Maduro government and build solidarity between our movements.
