Tue, 09/13/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
The Shock Decade: Abe and Joe look at the 10 years of post-Sept. 11 chaos and exploitation.

The Shock Doctrine: Author Naomi Klein's explanation of capitalism's use of disasters -- and the numb shock that accompanies them -- to carry out radical "free market" revisions. From Afghanistan to Iraq, from Guantanamo to the PATRIOT Act, from Katrina to the financial crisis of 2008, the post-Sept. 11 world has been one big application of the Shock Doctrine. Abe and Joe survey the wreckage.

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”.

Radioactive steam from cracks under the ground are suggesting major earthquake damage. The molten core is still fissioning--getting hotter--suggesting a "China Syndrome." The equivalent of 158 hiroshima bombs of cesium have been released. Theresa also takes a look at creating a solidarity movement here in Portland and putting the tiny minority of the super rich on notice that we've had enough, we're not going to be exploited any more.  A cap on wealth -- ten million max!  How would that work?
