Thomas Frank on "Ideology Over Reality"

Thomas Frank – Ideology Over Reality (lecture)

Ideology is a set of doctrines or beliefs that form the basis of a political and economic system. It can evolve in strange ways to the point where evidence and facts are not only irrelevant but are treated with scorn and derision. In its distorted form, its followers adopt rigid fundamentalist positions. Anyone who challenges the groupthink is a heretic, a non-believer. In the United States for example, the dominant narrative is that its foreign policy is altruistic and based on good intentions. When things go wrong, it’s the people we are trying to help, like those ungrateful Afghans, who mess things up. Domestically the so-called free market takes on near theological trappings. Reality is replaced by fantasies.

Our Dysfunctional Constitution and Alternative Democracies

program date: 
Mon, 04/16/2012

Tom Becker reads  David Michael Green's CounterPunch essay: "A Very Sick Country: deep maladies of the body politic". Green argues that, while it's not all bad, core features of the American political system -- the president, the electoral system, judicial review, state ownership and the separations of powers -- are either counterproductive to democracy or at best antiquated. He then goes on to make the case for a unitary parlimentary government, like most of the rest of the democratic world uses.

Short Description: 
Your government wants to see you naked. Abe and Joe discuss last week's Supreme Court ruling.

Justice may be blind, but your government wants to see you naked. Last week's Supreme Court ruling in Florence v. Bd. of Chosen Freeholders lets law enforcement impose a strip search for virtually any offense. It's another nail in the coffin for the 4th Amendment, and part of the nascent security state which, rather than being pared back in the post-Bush era, is only becoming more firmly entrenched. Abe and Joe take a closer look.
