Unwelcome Guests has produced hundreds of highly informative and thought-provoking programs from their collective in New England. A regular contributor to The A-Info Radio Project archive of broadcast quality audio.

Tonight's program #572, the latest to date at air time for RFK "Money & Monopoly" subtitled: "the contradictions of capitalism" presents the voices of the following: Milton Friedman, Howie Hawkins, Edward Griffin and Ellen Brown.
From the written program summary provided :
"If competition is such a good thing, why is it not tolerated in areas of government or law? Or in the money system, which functions as a highly profitable private business? And what about cartel agreements which align the interests of multi-national corporations firmly against the interests of consumers? Are corporations really competing to bring better products to market more cheaply, or are they competing for control of government to grant them privileges?"
To spice up the mix and bring this discussion to the immediate objective conditions at hand today I urge listeners to read the popular economist Paul Krugman's recent Ed/Op in the New York Times, "Panic of the Plutocrats."
Unwelcome Guests #572 runs the full two-hour length of RFK, no callers please.

This was a great introduction to a cause that we can work on at the local level at the same time we promote it on a global level. The only way to make sure that our children live in a sustainable world is to opt out of the globalized economy that is fueled by fossil oils for the profit of the international corporate terrorists who manufacture war for profit to seize the natural resources of other nations.
From China to Russia to the global network of plutocrats who control the US and other governments, the effort to impose a permanent fascist New World Order is advancing more rapidly than we can fight it unless we work together in our communities, nations and the world to create a united international front against fascism and war.

Cornel West, a Princeton University professor and leading black intellectual, is harshly criticizing President Obama, a candidate he once supported but now calls “a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.” West, a former Harvard University professor, said during an interview with the website Truthdig posted yesterday that the president has not been true to his race. “I think my dear bro
