Episode 384 Why We're Anxious Now

Alexey Prokorenko is an interpreter in Moscow; Pauline Rosenau is a retired political scientist in Houston; Peter Jones is a professor of design at OCAD, and Peter Phillips is a retired professor of sociology, Sonoma State University, who has a book about the people who control global capital. We discuss much of the world’s leading bad news stories – the dominance of capital in determining international relations; recent revelations about US teams paid by the Pentagon to kill ISIS without regard to the rules of war; the prospect of a major war between Russia and Ukraine; and how to reorganize voting so as to create the possibility of overpowering the “bad guys.
