Cindy interviews Ethan McCord, who became an unfortunate star of the Wikileaks “Collateral Murder” video, seen in the video carrying the wounded children from the bullet riddled van and Jud Newborn, PhD, co-author of Sophie Scholl and the White Rose, a companion volume to the recent Oscar-nominated German film, “Sophie Scholl: The Final Days.”  (There’s a fascinating PDF Afterword to the book available here.)  As the recent and newest Wikileaks revelations fade into undeserved obscurity – accepted and ignored by what was once an anti-war community – I feel I need to yell “WAKE UP” once again.  So we’ve elected a new wearer of the Imperial Purple (mainly by virtue of NOT being George W. Bush).  That doesn’t mean we can go back to sleep, and just wait for our problems to get fixed.  The murder of civilians hasn’t stopped, the looting of our nation’s wealth by corporate arms-merchants hasn’t stopped, and the criminalization of dissent proceeds apace.  As Hans Scholl (Sophie’s brother) wrote in his diary after hisfirst arrest by the Gestapo in 1937: “If you tear our hearts from our bodies, you yourselves will burn to death for it.”  Well people: America is also tearing the hearts of innocents out of their bodies.  Wikileaks confirms it.  Everybody knows it.  Do you think we will be rewarded for it?  What do you expect from a democracy, anyway?  Come on folks: Democracy is what we have when our masters tell us what’s right, and then we just do it.  Only afool would think that it has something to do with what we the people want.  Our democratically elected “fearless leaders” all say so.  I’m sure they must be right.  Today’s discussion delves once more into the power of NO, and how to say it.  Please use the link (audio below), and listen in to these maximally cool discussions.
