Today's show, hosted by Laurie Mercier, focuses on the challenges to organized labor; the need for and possibility of a new, cooperative world order; and a special piece that asks the question "does the ruling class really want to commit suicide?" There are also two brief musical interludes: Casey Neill's "Dancing on the Ruins (of multi-national corporations" and David Kearney's "Please Mr. President."
