Why is the U.S. so warlike? Some claim, because MEN are running the show. That may be over-simple, but do they have a point? Three famous men all say "yes." UTAH PHILLIPS and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN each tell a personal story about how American masculinity promotes war (in Korea & Vietnam, respectively). GEORGE CARLIN denounces Gulf War I as "a big dick-waving contest" started by the penile-insecure GHW Bush.
Utah Phillips' talk from an interview with Amy Goodman, courtesy of Springsteen narrative from "Live/1975-1985." 'New World Notes' is produced for WWUH-FM, 'Public Alternative Radio' at the University of Hartford. Feedback to kdowst at hotmail dot com.
George Carlin's performance is a masterpiece of vituperation. I've never heard him so angry, so bitter, so profane--yet still so recognizably Carlin. If Gulf War I p***ed him off this much, imagine how he would have reacted to our and Israel's Gaza adventure this past January! Rest in peace, George--you've earned it.
