TUC Radio: Ignacio Chapela: The Story of Corn (TWO of TWO), Segment 1

1 week 6 days ago
The contamination of the cradle of corn with genetically engineered seeds - Ignacio Chapela from the University of California, Berkeley discovered that genetically modified corn had contaminated the cradle of corn in the remote mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico. The Zapotecan Indians have cultivated corn there for over 10,000 years. In Part TWO Chapela questions why a biotech company can take out a patent on a living seed after making minor changes in the DNA. He also warns of horizontal gene transfer whereby an engineered gene from one organism may enter the genome of another species, including humans. Ignacio Chapela is now (2018) associate professor of microbial ecology at UC, Berkeley.

Taylor Report: Why the U.S. Threatens China, Segment 1

2 weeks ago
Sara Flounders joins the program to discuss her popular article, "Why the U.S. Threatens China." It has taken on greater relevance in the context of Canada's arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou. The 'trade war' isn't simply about trade: it's about the larger issue of the United States trying to contain China's overall economic rise. China wasn't supposed to succeed. It was supposed to be a giant sweatshop to sew t-shirts and assemble iPhones. Now, because of socialist planning, it is thwarting U.S. attempts at subjugation, and building a rapport with others who have been colonized and exploited. The U.S. is unable to compete economically with China in many sectors. Flounders describes how in its ongoing attempt to 'pivot to Asia,' America is leveraging its military advantage to put pressure on China.

The Alembic Files: The Ominous Parallels - 3, Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
In this segment, Hitler details his plan to propagandize the masses, who are actuated by emotion, not reason because, as Hitler states, “At mass meetings all thought is eliminated . . . this is the state of mind I require. . . I mingle the people, I speak to them only as the mass.” The mantra of the Nazi philosophy: Man’s true source of knowledge is feeling; Man is not a rational but an emotional being. And in this age of ubiquitous 24/7, wall-to-wall, wraparound media, it is arguable that the venues needed for mass gatherings are not as important to the manipulation of the mind when the stimuli needed to propagandize the masses can be mainlined into each member of the hive anywhere at any time. Consider, too, how much “news” is dedicated to entertainment and pop anti-culture. Again, the Nazi philosophy stressed that one “must distrust the intelligence and the conscience and must place our trust in our instincts.” That the preferred school system is one that doesn’t “emphasize the intellect because it “places too great a burden on the child and thwarts his emotional development . . . an education teaching facts and objectivity improperly emphasizes external factors at the expense of the child’s inner experience. “What Germany needs is a new kind of institution, not cold cognition–centered learning schools but feeling-centered leibenschulen [or] life schools.” And, so, the US public education system was given over to a proponent of this mindset: John Dewey, hero of collectivism.

2 weeks 1 day ago
A professor at Carleton University, Marcelo Saavedra is an Indigenous Bolivian leader and founder of the Bolivia Action Solidarity Network. He speaks to Latin Waves about the need to protect indigenous languages as these languages change how we view the world. He challenges the western notion of rights and how the paradigm shift that’s taking place must have women front and center. “If we can harness that wisdom that is embedded in our ancestral cultures, we can get rid of capitalism, patriarchy , Globalization and colonialism. And Women are a central central piece in this puzzle”

New World Notes: #565 -- Disabilities (R), Segment 1

2 weeks 1 day ago
Again we "compare great things with small." First, JESS WRIGHT tells the history of "disability" in America. People with impairments are labelled "disabled" when the economic system doesn't need them to fill a job. When more workers are needed, many of the "disabled" become "able"--as in US factories during World War II. Then KD reads & discusses a newspaper story about a tragic disability afflicting many women in America: gray hair. And about the awful consequences of failing to use hair dye.
