New World Notes 165 - Peasant of the Dawn - Kenneth Dowst
30-minute weekly radio program for May 3, 2011. Very nice *audiocollage* by Virtual Renderings, slightly condensed by me. It's a meditation on class warfare, the ruling elite's dislike of democracy, American exceptionalism, and the prescience of George Orwell, among other themes. Voices heard belong to Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, Noam Chomsky, historian Morris Berman, and Ken Nordine (himself a master of *audiocollage*), among others worth hearing. Includes dramatic readings from Orwell's "1984" and a wonderful satiric duet featuring Harry Shearer and Barack H. Obama ("Yes, We Can ... But"). Virtual Renderings' *audiocollages* can be downloaded without charge from here: http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/contributor/2102
New World Notes 166 - Sick of War - Kenneth Dowst
30-minute weekly radio program for May 10, 2011. Since my birth in 1950, U.S. foreign policy seems to have consisted of war, war, empire building, and more war. Is anybody else sick of this? ... or at least feeling broke from paying for it all? (1) MICHAEL PARENTI (1990s) discusses the the functions & purposes of the American empire and why "we" invade so many countries and overthrow their governments--many of them democracies. (2) BRUCE GAGNON--famed crusader against the militarization of space & related worthy issues--discusses the U.S.'s policy of Endless War and the related destruction of our (non-military) industrial base.
