New World Notes: #699 -- Chris Hedges: American Sadism, Segment 1

1 week 3 days ago
The best part (the second half) of a fiery and brilliant speech by journalist, essayist, activist, and prophet Chris Hedges. Hedges argues that sadism defines every aspect of American life, from the corporate-controlled popular culture to the politics to--especially--the harsh neoliberal-capitalist economic system. The interlocking systems all oppress the huge majority of Americans for the benefit of a tiny elite. Both political parties, including Mr. Biden, serve the elite and promote the oppression of the rest of us--destroying the environment in the process. (Continued under "Credits"... )

Committed to Vaccine Solidarity, Cuba Needs Our Support, Segment 1

1 week 3 days ago
Documentary film maker, literacy and social justice activist, Catherine Murphy speaks about her ten years in Cuba; the experience of tens of thousands of young Cuban volunteers in what became the 1961 National Campaign for Literacy that taught 700,000 illiterate peasants to read and write, and about which she made the documentary film Maestra; and the Cuban peoples work to break free from the legacy of colonial oppression that saddled their economy with an over dependence on the sugar industry. Cuba, in spite of the United States campaign to destroy Cuba's commitment to share what it learns as a society, is a leader in biotechnology and health care. It has successfully developed two Covid-19 vaccines against the pandemic that it is offering to share as well as provide to it own citizens. But the U.S. economic blockade has created a critical shortage of syringes on the island. They have the vaccine but require the syringes to administer it. Having limited the pandemic on the island until now, a spike in cases, likely due to tourism, makes it imperative to vaccinate all Cubans. Global Health Partners and Cuba Solidarity committees are collecting funds to send syringes to Cuba.

Taylor Report: The US War to Destroy Huawei, Segment 1

1 week 4 days ago
Phil interviews Canadian political writer, Stephen Gowans, about the U.S. campaign to destroy China's crown jewel of high-tech, Huawei. In 2012, the U.S. declared Huawei as a "security threat." In 2018, the U.S. also had Canada arrest Meng Wanzhou. Today, the U.S. is "inducing" countries to buy non-Huawei telecom products. The reason for the U.S. campaign is to cripple Huawei, preventing the growth of a Chinese high-tech industry, and relegating China as a low-wage, low value-added manufacturing economy, forever. The U.S. wants to guarantee high profits and monopolistic control of cutting-edge industries, such as high-tech, robotics, and Artificial Intelligence. Huawei is the world-leader in telecom. However, U.S. intelligence cannot mount cyber operations using Huawei equipment. Is there any truth to the allegation that Huawei builds back-doors into its telecom equipment? The NSA penetrated Huawei computers in 2011 to find out: a) if the company is part of Chinese intelligence and, b) is there a back-door in Huawei equipment that it could use. The U.S. could not find anything. It was John Bolton who initiated the attack on Huawei. The intention was to prevent any country from challenging the global supremacy of the United States. In other words, the U.S. intends to stifle the development of developing countries. Gowans calls it "maintaining the great divergence," in which the U.S. maintain global dominance, and other countries must play their subservient roles. Biden always condemns China for trying to dominate the "industries of tomorrow." In Biden's view, China threatens U.S. capitalism and its super-profits. Huawei is not going away, but the U.S. is using "5-Eyes" to stymie Huawei's share of the 5G market. Gowans provides several examples of this phenomenon: a) Ethiopia - given a $500 million dollar loan to build a cellular network on the condition that it doesn't include Huawei equipment. b) Eastern Europe - allowed to use "U.S. Aid" to build non-Huawei equipment. The U.S.A., ostensibly a champion of free competition, is using state measures to try to strangle and destroy Huawei. Meng's kidnapping was a political act by the Trump Administration to user her as a bargaining chip in his trade war on China. Her arrest is a reflection of the U.S. attempt to extend its extraterritoriality over Hong Kong, Iran, and Canada. There are dozens of cases of foreign countries prosecuted and fined by the United States for violating U.S. sanctions. But their executives don't get kidnapped. The CIA tried to recruit present and former employees of Huawei. Biden's China initiative has attempted to find evidence on Chinese nationals in the United States. Those prosecuted in the U.S. were approached for recruitment by the CIA.
