Sane Progressive Live Coverage National Anti-War Conference Richmond Virginia
“More than half of Yemen’s 28 million people are already short of food, the UN has said, and children are particularly badly hit, with hundreds of thousands at risk of starvation.
There are 370,000 children enduring severe malnutrition that weakens their immune system, according to Unicef, and 1.5 million are going hungry. Food shortages are a long-term problem, but they have got worse in recent months. Half of children under five are stunted because of chronic malnutrition. ”
If one has been following independent news over the last few years and the occasional mainstream report, it would appear at this point the oligarchy do not care at all how the masses perceive them. They know we know they are corrupt and they don’t care. The oligarchy no longer even feign interest in the masses.
The US political system is imploding. The US empire is in collapse and they are like an insatiable monster that now in its hubris intends to start wars with China and Russia and whomever else looks to be an obstacle in an attempt to control all resources. The scrabble for the most basic resources will be our future. They know it’s over for
our species (and most other species) with runaway global warming and an inevitable 6 degrees Celsius or higher on the not too distant horizon. They will exploit everything and it won’t end to its all used up.
Patriarchy has won.
Apocalyptic capitalism has won.
It’s end game now.
Their only interest at this point is who amongst them is going to control everything and what they need to do to achieve that aim. In other words, they must gain hegemony by any means necessary.
We can buckle our seat belts, but we are in a nose dive.

In episode 1, I discuss the widespread anti-Muslim animus today which is fueled by the mainstream media, by antitheists, by Western governments, by ourselves and by large corporations funding politicians who in turn invent reasons for imperialist wars. I discuss and share excerpts of interviews which explain how these fundamentalist attacks are not fueled by religion and that the real drivers are cultural and economic. I share some excerpts of interviews with Tariq Ramadan and with Chris Hedges.
Brief music excerpt in intro is by Palestinian group called Le Trio Joubran playing a piece titled “Masar”.
