The Folly of Technological Solutionism

Join us Monday at 8am when our guest will be Evgeny Morozov, author of "To Save Everything, Click Here: The Folly of Technological Solutionism". Mr. Morozov, author of the well received "The Net Delusion", considers our inordinate love affair with "technological solutionism"as threatening to fundamental democratic ideals and practices. 

The temptation of the digital age is to fix everything—from crime to corruption to pollution to obesity—by digitally quantifying, tracking, or gamifying behavior. But when we change the motivations for our moral, ethical, and civic behavior we may also change the very nature of that behavior.

Host Cecil Prescod interviews Kathy Kelly, of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. In early June she returned from over a month in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Several articles written by Kathy and Joshua Broiler are on the group's web page: http://vcnv.org .
Kathy says "it's what do people in Afghanistan want. There's real fear of the Taliban, but people ask why 
the U.S. invaders and their warlord clients should run the country. There are an estimated 850 children dying every day (see Save the Children). Meanwhile, we're spending $1 million per year just to deploy one 
soldier."

"Scramble for Africa: Darfur Intervention and the USA."

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Steven Fake, co author with Kevin Funk of "Scramble for Africa: Darfur Intervention and the USA."

Steven Fake and Kevin Fink have been researching and writing about Sudan since 2006. Their book is a scathing, indictment of the constellation of government leaders, corporate media outlets, and NGOs swirling around Sudan and the myriad ways in which the West has failed Darfur. They look at the NGO culpability, not just at US foreign policy.

Celeste and Cecil will ask Steven Fake about the history of US relations with Sudan, the level of funding of humanitarian efforts in Africa, and some of the contradictions in how aid and humanitarian efforts are distributed.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
