TUC Radio: Michael Parenti: The Face of Imperialism

Date Uploaded: 2018-02-20 14:45:56.0
"The Face of Imperialism will be hated by those who run the Empire, and it will be loved by people around the world - many of them indigenous peoples - who are defending themselves against the Empire." That's what the author Andre Vltchek wrote for the jacket of Dr. Michael Parenti's 2011 book.

Parenti has written about empire, history, the media, theology, and socialism in his decades as an activist and teacher. He is one of the nation’s leading progressive political analysts. After receiving his Ph.D. in political science from Yale Parenti has taught at colleges and universities, in the United States and abroad.

Parenti says that "Imperialism has been the most powerful force in world history over the last .. five centuries, carving up whole continents,.. oppressing indigenous peoples and obliterating entire civilizations. Yet, it is seldom accorded any serious attention by our academics, media .., and political leaders."

He spoke at a benefit for radio station KZFR in Chico, California.

Fourth World Radyo: Cognitive Freedom versus Collective Narcissism: Recognising the ...

Date Uploaded: 2018-02-19 18:41:39.0
SUMMARY: Audio commentary by @TheAngryindian; philosophical grounding culled (largely) from >> Erich Fromm’s ‘Escape from Freedom’ - Wikipedia - Fromm's concept of freedom // Fromm distinguishes between 'freedom from' (negative freedom) and 'freedom to' (positive freedom). The former refers to emancipation from restrictions such as social conventions placed on individuals by other people or institutions. This is the kind of freedom typified by the existentialism of Sartre, and has often been fought for historically, but according to Fromm, on its own it can be a destructive force unless accompanied by a creative element, 'freedom to' the use of freedom to employ spontaneously the total integrated personality in creative acts. This, he argues, necessarily implies a true connectedness with others that goes beyond the superficial bonds of conventional social intercourse: " the spontaneous realization of the self, man unites himself anew with the world..."

In the process of becoming freed from authority, we are often left with feelings of hopelessness (he likens this process to the individuation of infants in the normal course of child development) that will not abate until we use our 'freedom to' and develop some form of replacement of the old order. However, a common substitute for exercising "freedom to" or authenticity is to submit to an authoritarian system that replaces the old order with another of different external appearance but identical function for the individual: to eliminate uncertainty by prescribing what to think and how to act. Fromm characterises this as a dialectic historical process whereby the original situation is the thesis and the emancipation from it the antithesis. The synthesis is only reached when something has replaced the original order and provided humans with a new security. Fromm does not indicate that the new system will necessarily be an improvement. In fact, Fromm indicates this will only break the never-ending cycle of negative freedom that society submits to.

Radio Curious: Kupers, Dr. Terry: Solitary Confinement and How to End It

Date Uploaded: 2018-02-19 16:58:40.0
In this edition we again visit with Dr. Terry Allen Kupers, a forensic psychiatrist and the author of “Solitary: The Inside Story of Supermax Isolation and How We Can Abolish It."
In our first visit, available on line at, Dr. Kupers describes the abysmal conditions in which an estimated 100,000 incarcerated people, both men and women are held in solitary confinement in the United States. Kept in dark, cold, and often wet cells, more or less eight feet by ten feet in size, they have little or no human contact, sometimes for years on end. Many suffer from mental illness, prior to or as a result of living solitary confinement. This results in significant long term damage to these people as individuals and to our society as a whole.
In this second of our two part series, Dr. Kupers shares stories of prisoners held in solitary confinement and what he believes is necessary to achieve meaningful rehabilitation for people who have committed crimes and sentenced to prison.
When Dr. Terry Kupers and I visit by phone from his home in Oakland, California, on February 14, 2018, we began this second visit when I asked him to describe what he calls a rehabilitative attitude.
The book Dr. Kupers recommends is: Hell Is a Very Small Place: Voices from Solitary Confinement,” edited by Jean Casella, James Ridgeway and Sarah Shourd
This program was recorded on February 14, 2018.
