First hour: Visionary historian Anthony Hall, Professor of Globalization Studies, University of Lethbridge; author, The American Empire and the Fourth World and Earth Into Property. Tony Hall’s two-volume revisionist history of recent centuries, told with an emphasis on the perspective of indigenous peoples, is essential reading for anyone who wants to know what is really going on on this troubled planet. His latest article From Hiroshima to Fukushima, 1945-2011: A Nuclear Narrative of Hubris and Tragedy provides the context for understanding the recent Japanese nuclear disaster.
Second hour: former Congresswoman and Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney. The best candidate to appear on a presidential ballot in my lifetime, Cynthia McKinney is a fearless seeker of truth and justice. Her grilling of Donald Rumsfeld over the 9/11 war games, the missing 2.3 trillon in Pentagon funds announced on 9/10/01, etc. is one of the greatest political moments in US history, and will be one day recognized as such. Congresswoman McKinney’s recent article “President Obama Gets His Groove Back by Attacking Africans” tells more hard truths in fourteen paragraphs than you’re likely to find anywhere. Where can I get a “Don’t Blame Me, I Voted for Cynthia McKinney” bumpersticker?
