YOU are in a New Global Crisis – but Don’t Know It (w/ Richard Wolff)

Thom Hartmann Program

May 24, 2020

The Federal Reserve is buying junk bonds to keep business in business, causing a new global crisis. This is desperate action and building up a massive debt. This is the third economic crash this century. The corporate debt is so large, that they are zombie companies, which are technically bankrupt.

Professor Richard Wolff joined Thom to discuss that the Fed is printing money at an alarming rate. Business are going out of business as they can’t service their debt – but the news cycle isn’t picking up on that.

Health Experts Warn Of Looming Coronavirus Eruption In Red States

The Ring of Fire
May 24, 2020

Southern states, all of which happen to be “red states” at the moment, are about to be hit by the “second wave” of coronavirus cases as these states rushed to reopen before it was safe to do so. These new infections will likely dwarf what we’ve seen in these areas so far, and the hyper-partisan nature of these areas is the leading culprit. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening from inside a red state. Link – https://www.washingtonpost.com/health…

Noam Chomsky on Trump’s Disastrous Coronavirus Response, WHO, China, Gaza and Global Capitalism


Democracy Now!

Published on May 24, 2020

How did the United States — the richest country in the world — become the worldwide epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, with one person dying of COVID-19 every 47 seconds? We spend the hour with Noam Chomsky, the world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author, discussing this unprecedented moment in history, and its political implications. Chomsky reflects on the significance of the Bernie Sanders campaign, calling it “an extraordinary success” that “completely shifted the arena of debate and discussion” in the United States. He also responds to President Trump’s cuts to U.S. support for the World Health Organization and the surge in deaths in the United States to another record high, and discusses conditions in Gaza, the rise of authoritarianism around the world, and the progressive response

The world’s students, their parents and entire school systems are being transformed by the response of global hi-tech education companies to the COVID-19 crisis into vast systems of information delivery, mass indoctrination and thought control.

What Noam Chomsky famously called, the “range of thinkable thought” has been narrowly constrained by those who “frame” the issues for public discussion and control the mechanisms of information flow over the internet around the world.

As the effective flow of diverse voices becomes radically restricted the fundamental premise of independent inquiry and free debate is being crushed out of the the age-old tradition of liberal arts education around the world.

Today: COVID, Climate Change and Conflict Resolution

 

Climate change affects everyone – and is a threat multiplier. During the pandemic, our air has become less polluted due to the dramatic drop in carbon emissions from halted industrial output and declining energy demands. The sweeping policy responses to COVID-19 have revealed that governments could tackle climate change if they could muster the same focus and zeal they brought to bear on the coronavirus crisis. How do we get politicians to treat climate change with the same sense of urgency and intensity as COVID-19? What is being done to prepare our countries for the effects of climate change? What more needs to be done to build up resilience?

Today we will hear from environmentalists from China, South Asia, the Middle East and Europe, of the opportunities to create solidarity and mobilize constituencies in the face of climate change.

Our panelists are:

  • Gidon Bromberg, Israeli co-founder of Ecopeace, a regional organization that brings together Jordanian, Palestinian, and Israeli environmentalists to promote sustainable development and advance peace efforts in the Middle East (2007 Yale World Fellow)
  • Shuang Liu, Senior Associate, World Resources Institute
  • Rafay Alam, Pakistani environment lawyer and activist (2014 Yale World Fellow)
  • Janet Dalziell, recently of Greenpeace, now advising organisations working for environmental and social justice solutions (2013 Yale World Fellow).

The Good Society Forum is a community of change-makers around the world with a common quest to build the good society. Launched in April 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Good Society Forum Webinars digitally connect change makers around the world, engage them on ideas, and inspire action to build the good society.
