Maria Gilardin from TUC Radio has boadcast this talk in two parts and has described it thus:

"In this entertaining talk, rich with historic references, Parenti describes the right-wing agenda of dismantling social democracy while calling anybody who describes this as a purposeful strategy a conspiracy theorist. He shows that this strategy began right after World War II but culminates now as powerful segment of right wing media and the GOP have moved so far to the right that they have overshot their popular base. Meanwhile democrats, including Obama, unable or unwilling to formulate the social democratic alternative, still talk of bipartisan approaches."

What she doesn't mention in her introduction is just how far Michael Parenti goes in this talk to indicate that he considers George Bush and Dick Cheney and co to be complicit in the events of September 11th 2001.

At the start of the talk Michael Parenti refers to a speech on Conspiracy and Class Power he gave in 1993, this is available from the TUC Radio Michael Parenti archive, http://www.tucradio.org/parenti.html along with many other recordings.
