An eye-opening and well-researched talk by activist Vincent Emanuele. He explores the three crises that are making the world--at best--highly unstable. Then he suggests some steps that the people can take to make our uncertain future as livable as possible.

Since neither government nor business is likely to do anything positive about these crises, useful responses will have to come from the grassroots.

(Continued under "Credits")
All three crises are deeply rooted in the United States. Two of them are now global. The crises are (1) social collapse in the U.S., (2) militarization, and (3) ecological disaster.

In Part 1 (this week) Emanuele shows the dimensions of social collapse and militarization and begins his discussion of the ecology crisis.

Emanuele spoke at the Open University of the Left, in Chicago, on September 24, 2016. Thanks to Dale Lehman/WZRD, for the original audio recording, which I have condensed and slightly edited. The original recording is available on (the speech title differs).

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "fluorescent glare") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
