This week in New World Notes, radio program #205, February 7, 2012
What Can We Do?
The more our country crumbles, the more the government says it can't afford to help us. Three voices offer three different solutions.
Annie Leonard says there's plenty of money: just force Congress to close corporate loopholes and support new "green" industries instead of "the dinosaur economy." Kevin Carson says forget it: Big Government will always serve the powerful . . . so let's develop an alternative economy. Chris Hedges says that civil disobedience is our only option.
Includes the entirety of Annie Leonard's new video, The Story of Broke . . . plus some reflections by K.D.
The Story of Broke is available on YouTube.
Thanks to Robin Upton and Unwelcome Guests for Chris Hedges' recent talk at Hofstra University (from which I have played excerpts).
Kevin Carson's essay--which I slightly condensed and edited for radio--is from CounterPunch, November 28, 2011.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "spreading chestnut tree") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
You can listen to any installment of New World Notes online or else download it (as an mp3 audio file) for later listening. The show is archived at both radio4all.net and (from #90 onwards) The Internet Archive. Either link should get you a reverse-chrono listing of available installments. Or browse the show's Web site: Each installment has a page, and each page has links to the recorded audio. See the gray sidebar on the right ("CONTENTS [Links]") for a table of contents.
Series overview: Political and social commentary in a variety of genres. Exploring the gap between what we want ... and what they're trying to make us settle for.
