Vol. 5, No. 27-28 -- July 6, 2012
(in two parts)
A quirky and interesting film by Pete McGrain on the character of our time. Includes good commentary by Norman Solomon, Noam Chomsky, former MP Tony Benn, the late Chalmers Johnson, and others. And some comments by me too. Narrated by McGrain and Woody Harrelson.
It's about democracy, and national policies, and why the policies are so anti-democratic. It's about how politicians and corporate elites have declared war on democracy, and how they use the corporate news media as powerful weapons to control public opinion. And it's about how these people give us perpetual real warfare for the sake of its high profits.
Familiar points but (mostly) made well.
Harrelson, co-executive producer Isabella Michelle Marles
Ethos was adapted to radio by Robin Upton and originally broadcast on Unwelcome Guests. The adaptation is available complete at http://unwelcomeguests.net/586. I have condensed this adaptation for broadcast on New World Notes. Many thanks to Robin and Unwelcome Guests.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "false promises") 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.
