Single Payer Health Care in -- The Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Act

Isn't it time we acknowledge health care as a right?  What could possibly make it alright for there to be a profit motive in health care?  Why should we endlessly capitulate to the private insurance industry?  Why do people go without essential preventative care, while the executives take home millions of dollars? And why have we put up with this for so long?

Amiri Baraka on Resistance & the Arts

Amiri Baraka - Resistance & the Arts (lecture)

From Allen Ginsberg to Kurt Vonnegut and from Bob Dylan to Michael Franti artists have been on the cutting edge. The arts play a pivotal role in society. The great historian Howard Zinn said: “Whenever I become discouraged I lift my spirits by remembering: The artists are on our side! I mean those poets and painters, singers and musicians, novelists and playwrights who speak to the world in a way that is impervious to assault because they wage the battle for justice in a sphere which is unreachable by the dullness of ordinary political discourse. The billionaire mandarins of our culture can show us the horrors of war on a movie screen and pretend they are making an important statement.
