Non-accountable and Non-transparent "Co-ops" Oxymoronic

On Co-ops and their Survival, Prosperity, Growth and Name/Reputation--in General
My understanding is that KBOO is a member-owned co-op structured through the KBOO foundation and because all members cannot pay attention to strategic imperatives for the survival, vitality, prosperity and and name/standing/reputation of KBOO they elect and "entrust" such duties to the KBOO Board.

Promises Made--That Will be Kept

Promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.

When I ran for the KBOO Board in 2000, and recently was voted unanimously to serve on the present KBOO Board, I made promises that I intended and still intend to keep. My platform then in 2000 was the same as the recent one in answering the questions put to me by the KBOO Board.

My motive in coming to KBOO was never programming in terms of my own program. I am a teacher and lecture all over the world and did/do not need a megaphone. I am heartened, however,  by the support that we never solicited, but nonetheless got, from listeners to Mitakuye Oyasin in Russia, Italy, Turkey, Denmark and other countries.

Answers to Questions Put To KBOO Board Candidates

1) Now that we are at the point of not having a station manager, how would go about pursuing a restructuring of KBOO?

If I am appointed to the Board my first task is to thoroughly investigate for myself all that was involved in personnel changes and leavings including the stated reasons, allegations about supposed real reasons, the arguments for and against removal of someone in particular and the elimination of the manager position in general, present imperatives and demands on KBOO resources, present and possibly new resources to meet those imperatives and demands, etc.

Test run

This is a test of the system.

The privilege of opening the first trial in history for crimes against the peace of the world imposes a grave responsibility. The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant, and so devastating that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored because it cannot survive their being repeated...
...We must never forget that the record on which we judge these defendants today is the record on which history will judge us tomorrow. To pass these defendants a poisoned chalice is to put it to our own lips as well. We must summon such detachment and intellectual integrity to our task that this trial will commend itself to posterity as fulfilling humanity...

Conference on Indian Residential Schools: The Past is Present Radio Interview With Pierrre Laboisser

Residential Schools—The Past is Present Radio program w/James Craven on The United Church May 2000 TAPE 1 transcription - introduction…
Most genocides in this century have been perpetuated by nation states upon ethnic minorities living within the state’s own borders. Most of the victims have been children. The people responsible for mass murder have by and large gotten away with what they have done. Most have succeeded in keeping the wealth that they’ve looted from their victims. Most have never faced trial. Genocide is still difficult to eradicate because it is usually tolerated, at least by those who benefit from it.
Pierre Laboisser intro… Residential schools operated in Canada from around 1870 to the early 1980s.
