Joe talks about Coal Trains through Oregon

program date: 
Tue, 08/21/2012

 Hosted by Joe Uris.  Abe Proctor is on Vacation.

Today's topic is the Coal Industry, and their plans to chop down Mountains in Appalacia and ship them through the Columbia Gorge, to China for incineration.  This is a Bad Idea for many reasons.  The trains leak significant amounts of Coal Dust, which degrades our health and environment.  Burning Coal in China increases the Air Pollution right here, in the United States, for we live on a Globe, a closed system.  Chopping down Mountains and throwing the rubble and waste into Streams is very destructive.

Bill Smaldone: History of Social Democratic Party - Part 1

program date: 
Mon, 08/20/2012

Bill Resnick and Bill Smaldone start a two-part conversion about the German Social Democratic party in the 19th and 20th Centuries. Smaldone lays out the historical context of the consolidating and industrializing German state, then explains how the Social Democrats emerged as a parliamentary movement and became a civic movement. Most exciting is how the Social Democrats was organizing the working-class of Germany in the late 19th Century by creating alternative cultural and social institutions that until then only middle-class really had. The vision they had was akin to 20th century socialist schemes of dual-power. Part two will be aired next week.

Howard Zinn - Emma Goldman, Anarchism & War Resistance (lecture)

Howard Zinn - Emma Goldman, Anarchism & War Resistance (lecture)

Emma Goldman is largely an unknown figure today. She deserves wider recognition. She was born in Lithuania and died in 1940. She spent many years as an organizer in the United States. She was a major anarchist thinker and activist as well as a passionate advocate for women's rights. Anarchism today is mostly viewed negatively. It's seen as a synonym for disorder and chaos. Few recognize it as a political philosophy rooted in the ideals of the Enlightenment. Noam Chomsky calls it "the libertarian wing of socialism." Anarchism not only opposes the institutions of state coercion and violence, it questions the very legitimacy of the state.
