Vol. 5, No. 29 -- July 20, 2012
History is taught so as to (1) instill patriotism and submission to the rulers and (2) make people hate the real study of history. Real history shows that events in the news are but the latest examples in a long pattern.
Noam Chomsky shows that "Arab Spring" pro-democracy rebellions have been occurring for 100 years (usually suppressed by dictators, with US backing). Chris Hedges shows how the 1% has waged war against the 99% for 200 years, with examples from the US, Russia, Germany, Yugoslavia, & elsewhere.
Washington, D.C. Below: Noam Chomsky.
Chomsky's remarks were recorded at the "Russell Tribunal" in March 2011.
Chris Hedges' remarks are from an interview with Mike McCormick on Mike's show, Mind Over Matters.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "resigned sighs") 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.
