What does it mean to be connected? A conversation with filmmaker Tiffany Shlain

Are you unable to go more than an hour without checking your email? Are you and your laptop or smartphone inseparable? Or are you so overwhelmed by technology to the point of shunning it all? We continue to have a love-hate relationship with technology as it makes us more connected and more interdependent each day. Connected, a new documentary/memoir by Tiffany Shlain, explores what it means to be connected in the 21st century and what that interdependence means for the human species.

Michael Ruppert: Can we shift out of our "economic Ponzi scheme?"

program date: 
Wed, 09/07/2011

"Unless you change how money works, you change nothing. We live in an infinite growth economy, in other words -- a ponzi scheme. Infinite growth on a finite planet is not possible. Those species who cannot get out of their paradigm are doomed to go extinct. Can we disengage from our paradigm?" Host Per Fagering speaks with Michael C. Ruppert, who is probably best known for having accurately predicted the 2008 financial crash, Peak Oil and its impacts. In April of this year he issued a compelling and detailed alert on Collapsenet that warned of a major economic implosion, followed by massive civil unrest starting in late July which is still unfolding and leading to “the collapse of human industrial civilization”.
