Back in the USSR: Back in the USSR Literary Supplement, Segment 2

3 个月 1 周 ago
In this episode of Back in the USSR I perform Peter Barnes's one-act play "The Preacher" about the life of Jacques Roux, one of the most radical figures of the French Revolution. I follow this up with a discussion of the class struggle to lay claim to the culture of modern society and how progressive and radical writers and artists, including me, are fighting back against capitalist monopoly control over the cultural landscape. I also talk a bit about the fantasy novel that I'm currently working on and how it challenges the conventions of a deeply conservative literary genre.

Dr. Josef Ben Levi on the Bambara and the Commerce of Enslavement, Segment 1

3 个月 1 周 ago
Northeastern Illinois University hosted the Forks In the Road exhibit that documented a large slave market in Natchez Mississippi where tens of thousands of enslaved Africans were brought to be sold and traded as property. Without the human labor and as Dr. Bin Levi informs us, agricultural, building and metallurgy skills embodied in the individuals stolen from Africa, plantation owners could do little with the land, taken from native inhabitants. It was big business with investors and purveyors of the goods. Many of the companies involved then are still operating today as prominent corporations in the fields of finance, insurance and clothing to give a few examples. Bin Levi talks about which Africans were preferred for labor and which for the plantation's "fancy ladies" because of their physical characteristics. He speaks about the cultural, religious and agricultural knowledge embodied in the people that were stolen from their homes, survived the brutal transport to North America and then often worked to death by in a system that applied the lash to improve individual out put in the field. It was an early example of modern Capitalism's methods and it generated the wealth used to industrialize the North.

Building Bridges: Horsemen of the Trumpocalypse with John Nichols, Segment 1

3 个月 1 周 ago
Horsemen of the Trumpocalypse: A Field Guide to the Most Dangerous People in America with John Nichols, is the national affairs writer for The Nation magazine and a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times. He is also the associate editor of the Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin, and a cofounder of the media-reform group Free Press. A frequent commentator on American politics and media, he has appeared often on MSNBC, NPR, BBC and regularly lectures at major universities on presidential administrations and executive power. The author of ten books and has earned numerous awards for his investigative reports, including ground-breaking examinations (in collaboration with the Center for Media and Democracy) of the Koch brothers and the American Legislative Exchange Council. A line-up of the dirty dealers and defenders of the indefensible who are definitely not "making America great again" Donald Trump has assembled a rogue's gallery of alt-right hatemongers, crony capitalists, immigrant bashers, and climate-change deniers to run the American government. To survive the next four years, we the people need to know whose hands are on the levers of power. And we need to know how to challenge their abuses. John Nichols, veteran political correspondent at the Nation, has been covering many of these deplorables for decades. Sticking to the hard facts and unafraid to dig deep into the histories and ideologies of the people who make up Trump's inner circle, Nichols delivers a clear-eyed and complete guide to this wrecking-crew administration.
