Economics and Social Justice - can they coexist?
This evening we will be conversing with Norm Kurland, President of the Center for Economics and Social Justice. CESJ.org. This think tank was started in 1984 and defines itself as an education center and social justice catalyst. We will draw Norm out on the subjects of economic and social justice - how far have we come?
In case you missed the "lecture and discussion" (more one sided "lecture") that the Missoula YWCA presented March 27, you just may find this episode really interesting. The "Y" classified this little get together under their Community Social Justice Series – CSKT Water Compact. The event tags were CSKT Water Compact, Racial Justice. Yep you read that right! "Racial Justice"
This is from their website:
"For our March YWTalks, we will host Mary Stranahan of the organization Montana Water Stewards for a lecture and discussion about the proposed CSKT-Montana Compact. According to the Reserved Water Rights Compact Comission, the Compact “will make new water available for commercial and irrigation use, end the water administration void on the Flathead Reservation, allow for economic development under conditions of legal certainty on and off the Reservation, and facilitate the completion of the statewide general stream adjudication.” For more information, contact Organizer Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org. 406 543 6691
TVFM did attend and what you will hear in this episode is the raw uncut, unedited audio clip of this "lecture", accompanied with TVFM's comments. After which you just might contact the "organizer", not for infromation but to give her a piece of your mind and some real CSKT compact data!
BTW There was another suprise speaker. Tune in to find out.
On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the most important issues facing the working class. We'll discuss the U.S. flights over China. Why is the U.S. deliberately trying to provoke China; some have suggested insane brinkmanship on the part of the U.S. Is this part of a larger strategy?
It's been documented that one African American is killed by the police every 28 hours. Unfortunately, virtually no police officers are held accountable. The latest example of this is the acquittal of a white Cleveland police officer who shot and killed an African American couple. Do black lives matter in the capitalist cystem?
Michael Parenti of the Greanville Post wrote an article in defense of existing socialism and socialism of the past. We'll discuss the importance of the article and the implications for the future. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.greanvillepost.com%2F2015%2F05%2F23%2Fleft-anticommunism-the-unkindest-cut%2F&h=0AQFIdGMH
Also, it was revealed last week through a FOIA lawsuit that the U.S., Saudi Arabi and other allies supported the creation of the Islamic State. Was this a deliberate act to create further military action in Syria and elsewhere?

A commonly accepted definition of Justice is that it is a moral standard of all men to one another requiring them to perform their social and moral as well as legal obligations to each other and to grant to each other all that fairly be granted.
The importance and significance of justice can never be underestimated in the affairs of men. This is so because according to Pope Pius XII, just as, in fact, there can be no peace without order so there can be no order without justice.”
Verily, justice occupies the highest place in the hierarchy of human values. Under the Old Testament particularly in the Book of Micah, the teachings of the prophets of Israel were summarized into one verse only: “to do justice; to show constant love and to live in humble fellowship with God.”
Actually, justice is synonymous with righteousness in the sense that what is righteous is just and what is just is righteous.
Indeed, it is important to be just for according to Confucius “heaven gives long and good life to the just.” His statement finds strong support in two biblical passages, to wit:
“Righteous men – men of integrity – will live in this land of ours. But God will snatch wicked men from the land and pull sinners out of it like plants from the ground.” (Proverbs 2:21-22)
“The Lord puts a curse on the house of wicked men and blesses the homes of the righteous.” (Proverbs 3:33
April 26th, 2015, the Election Boycott Advocates return to Carson's Corner. With the TPP passing out of committe, the ruling class are one step closer to further eroding the wages of working Americans, which are considered high in the capitalist view of the world market. We'll give you the latest developments on the resistance to this corporate, backroom deal.
Plus, we'll give you the latest on the worldwide class struggle taking place in Venezuela, Ukraine and any other country that continues to fight U.S. imperalism. It is these struggles that may shape the class struggle here in the U.S.

Conservatives are perceived to be at a disadvantage when it comes to social justice. We simply must get better at thinking and talking about it. And we have a lot to offer. Liberal progressivism is very flawed in its perceptions of social justice, and its policy prescriptions are often disastrous. It is no accident that after nearly a decade of the left's ascendancy, American society is bitterly divided and increasingly convinced that social institutions have been hijacked to enrich a few favored groups with both money and power.
Social justice is a goal that challenges every generation. It is never achieved completely, but we must keep trying. The holidays provide a wonderful opportunity to ponder this transcendent ideal of our Judeo-Christian heritage.
On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we welcome our old friend Harry Cason, member/supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement, college professor and author, to the show. Harry will defend the Zeitgeist Movement from any and all non-traditional leftist criticisms. During the course of this debate/discussion, you can bet that we will touch upon so many of the key issues that face working class Americans each day.
