(SOAPBOX #95) – Cindy presents one hellaciously illuminating show, featuring popularly demanded Professor Francis Boyle, who refuses to buy the common brown, squishy and stinky “party line” proffered by our ruling class, or corporatocracy.  (See his Faculty profile here.)  He wants WORLD PEACE!  The man speaks good sense.  He PREFERS logic and truth – a very serious “character defect,” which can cost an adherent profoundly in terms of popular acceptability.  (Non-“official” viewpoints completely disqualify one from being a “serious” and relevant pundit.)  No; the real truth about this show is that Professor Boyle’s Integrity boils over.  He and Cindy discuss the Democratic Party’s immense skills at co-opting social movements that might be effective.  Both agree that today our Peace Movements are mostly front organizations for the Democratic party.  Dr. Boyle totally endorses the honesty & sincerity of people at the grassroots level in these organizations – but he does have grave doubts about the National leadership of such groups.  concurring with Cindy, he explicitly cites “Uniting for Peace and Justice” and “MoveOn.org” as working to keep the Peace Movement inactive and ineffective.  One real gem of wisdom is their parallel observations that “Obama is a “gift to the ruling class,” in that they can further their objectives quicker with him than they could with Bush, who lost so much popular support in the country.  (One could regard Obama as the black “velvet glove” on the “iron fist” of the U.S. Empire.)
