The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 04.19.17

James Davies PhD is a British academic, researcher, therapist, author and political activist in the psychology and mental health arenas. He does it all. To my delight, his activism began when a patient brought him a copy of Toxic Psychiatry! This quickly flowing hour focuses on the politics of psychiatry in Great Britain and the US, its changes over the years, and where it is going now. James is enthusiastic, perceptive and patient-centered in his observations on the mental health field, and his life and work will inspire you.

Black Agenda Radio – 03.20.17

Welcome, to the radio magazine that brings you news, commentary and analysis from a Black Left perspective. I’m Glen Ford, along with my co-host, Nellie Bailey. Coming up: It’s been almost 50 years since Dr. Martin Luther King broke with a Democratic President over the Vietnam War, but talking peace is still politically risky; and, whether you want to reform the U.S. prison system, or abolish it altogether, you’ll want to be in Washington on August 19, for the Millions for Prisoners Human Rights March.

​NEW SHOW ALERT: The Conspiracy Guy – 01.11.17

The Conspiracy Guy #7: During the Golden Globes Award ceremony, Meryl Streep lampooned Donald Trump for one of his untoward statements, where he has made many. But she was playing to the choir. Would it not have been more appropriate to promote coming together to support the new administration, which was the outcome of the election? There are many reasons why she should have considered other options that would have been more constructive in bringing the nation together, especially given the ways in which the election was rigged, not for Donald but for Hillary. The latest revelations from the FBI about her use of an insecure server (for which she did not have evan a password) include 81 email chains that were transmitted and stored on her server that included CONFIDENTIAL and even TOP SECRET/SPECIAL ACCESS PROGRAM (the highest level) sent between 2009-2013. There were many indications during the campaign that something was not right, including the use of body doubles after her collapse following the 9/11 Memorial service in New York. Hollywood should have been all over that. Moreover, killing Osama bin Laden has been touted as among the “Top 10” achievements of the Obama administration, but it, too, was a political stunt, where Osama died on 15 December 2001 in Afghanistan and had to be resurrected to die a second time, which was memorialized in the film, “Zero Dark Thirty”, which wiped questions about his birth certificate from public attention and positioned him for his triumphal reelection.

Lambert Strether – “The Narrative,” Neoliberalism, and Identity Politics

I should start by saying that the headline isn’t exactly clickbait, because who writes clickbait on Boxing Day anyhow, but it does oversell what I’m about to write, which is not a Grand Unified Theory mutually contextualizing all three topics — perhaps another time — but a consideration of each topic, in linear order. That is, first I’ll consider “The …

PAUL KINGSNORTH – Brexit Reconsidered: a Modern Day Peasants’ Revolt?

In his introduction to the 1979 edition of his novel Pig Earth – the first in a trilogy chronicling the decline of peasant life in Europe in the 20th century – John Berger makes a distinction between what he calls a “culture of progress” and a “culture of survival”. The culture of progress, he says, “was born with the bourgeoisie …

Dharma Singh Khalsa – Why Life Goes Faster as You Grow Older

Do you have the sense that life is speeding up the older you get? If so, you’re not alone. Can there be a reason for this perception? I’ve discovered three scientific theories that shine a little light on this mysterious experience. The first is a phenomenon called “telescopy.” Telescopy [3] is simply the underestimation of time. It’s as though you’re looking through a …
