How the movement for civil rights has changed from sit-ins to the fire this time. How the waterhouses and policed dogs of the 60's has been repalaced by rubber bullets and flash grenades. Cointelpro is alive and well in Ferguson, Missouri with Agent Provocatuers on hand.
"COINTELPRO" was the FBI's secret program to undermine the popular upsurge which swept the country during the 1960s. Though the name stands for "Counterintelligence Program," the targets were not enemy spies. The FBI set out to eliminate "radical" political opposition inside the US. When traditional modes of repression (exposure, blatant harassment, and prosecution for political crimes) failed to counter the growing insurgency, and even helped to fuel it, the Bureau took the law into its own hands and secretly used fraud and force to sabotage constitutionally- protected political activity. Its methods ranged far beyond surveillance, and amounted to a domestic version of the covert action for which the CIA has become infamous throughout the world.

Tonight's special guest is Sandi Atmore from California, a survivor and returning NAASCA family member who's a Life Coach & Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. Her childhood was tumultuous and she suffered physical, sexual and verbal abuse from the time she was 2 until the age of 15. The dynamic in Sandi’s home was that all bad things were to be kept behind closed doors and so to the outside world her family looked happy and normal. To deal with the stress and abuse Sandi developed the same coping skills she learned from her caregivers, denial and repression. As an adult her life revolved around moving up the corporate ladder and fitness. Childhood wounds that had left an internal feeling that something was terribly wrong with her fueled her drive. If she could just “make it” in business and have the perfect body then perhaps that terrible feeling would go away. It didn’t work. Neither did drugs or alcohol. In 2005, after facing the abuse of her childhood Sandi walked away from drugs. She discovered Grief Recovery in 2006. The Outreach Program gave her the structure and tools to heal from the inner wounds. Sandi notes, "I am a survivor and I received help in many ways. One was therapy, one was Grief Recovery (which I know teach). I am a Life Coach and Certified Grief Recovery Specialist so I help many people who have suffered through child abuse, specifically sexual." She continues, "I work with people vocationally, relationally, emotionally, mentally and spiritually to support them in inner healing which always leads to a better quality of life and the ability to break the cycles of abuse. I also volunteer at an organization called Safe Passage which helps women to recover from domestic violence, many of those women are sexual abuse victims as well."

Police brutality is the wanton use of excessive force, usually physical, but potentially in the form of verbal attacks and psychological intimidation, by a police officer.
Widespread police brutality exists in many countries, even those that prosecute it. It is one of several forms of police misconduct, which include: false arrest; intimidation; racial profiling; political repression; surveillance abuse; sexual abuse; and police corruption. However, as aforementioned, it may involve physical force but never reaching death under police custody.Although illegal, it can be done under the color of law.

While Joseph Campbell “covered the mythological waterfront,” he never wrote a book on the Goddess. However, he had much to say on the subject. Between 1972 and 1986 he gave over twenty lectures and workshops on Goddesses, exploring the figures, functions, symbols, and themes of the feminine divine, following them through their transformations.
These lectures, which are the basis for the new book Goddesses: Mysteries of the Feminine Divine, have been in Campbell’s archival collection since his death in 1987. The material has never been heard or read by anyone other than those who originally attended the lectures. So Goddesses offers completely new, previously unpublished material for new and long-time Campbell fans alike. It is also the only book in Campbell’s collected works that focuses on his ideas and study of goddess mythologies through time and culture.
Edited by today's guest Safron Rossi, PhD, executive director of the Opus Archives and Research Center where Campbell’s archives are housed, Goddesses documents how Campbell’s work from the 1960s to the 1980s showed how the symbolic systems of the older goddess traditions survived in various forms, despite 2,000 years of patriarchal and monotheistic repression in mythologies and religion. “I believe this was one of the ways Campbell was addressing the importance of women finding and articulating what these ancient myths mean for women today, but from women's own perspectives and voices,” says Rossi. “The book also shows that Campbell was not solely focused on the male hero or experience of myth, but also studied and reflected on the feminine divine and goddess traditions.”
From the beating of Rodney King to the murder of Kelly Thomas, police tactics in the U.S. have become so heavy-handed that people are regularly being murdered by those ostensibly sworn ‘to protect and to serve’ them.
The militarization of police forces – particularly since 9/11, the steady erosion of civil rights via draconian laws, and an atmosphere of hysteria generated by the ‘War on Terror’ have all combined to place the police ‘above the law’.
But tyrannical and dictatorial repression is what ‘those other countries’ do, right? Why is it, then, that we constantly see headlines of people in the U.S. being beaten, tasered, and even shot to death for such minor infringements as traffic violations? Are cops ‘out of control’? Are they ‘just obeying orders’?
This week on SOTT Talk Radio we’re going to take a look at police brutality in the ‘land of the free’. Join us live this Sunday June 29th 2014, from 2-4pm EST (11am-1pm PST, 8-10pm CET).
