Programming to escape the sporting spectacles offered to many as ‘bread and circus.’ Reserved for book interviews, lectures and discussions involving thoughtful critical analysis.
We begin with Jeff Blankfort's "Takes on the World" program from Philos, CA KZYX July 25, 2018, discussing Nicaragua.
His summary: Rebecca Gordon begins by explaining why Nicaragua has a special place and is particularly important for many Americans at a time when there is so much worse violence and killing in the world; it is what the Sandinista movement and its victory in 1979 presented to the world. She describes what they had done for the people of Nicaragua in terms of health, education, and dignity, but is quick to point that neither Pres. Danny Ortega or today’s Sandinista movement bears any political resemblance to the Sandinistas of the 80s who captured the world’s imagination and ire of the United States which has a long and ugly history of intervening in Nicaragua. She points out how Ortega and his wife Rosario Murillo had become part of reactionary Catholic sect which led to the imposition of overly strict laws against abortion but suggests that might have had something to do with an absence of a drug problem which makes Nicaragua almost unique in the region, but suspects, it might also have something to do with Ortega allowing the drug cartels boats to pass by its west coast without any problems.
Then a 3-part debate from The Real News Network on the same.
