Download Hour1 Download Hour2 Are the politicians and corporate heads who are pushing the neoliberal global agenda evil, psycho- or socio-paths, delusional and out of touch with reality, or what? You may be asking yourself that same question when you've heard this week's show.
In our first hour, we look at some of the worldviews held by the proponents of the New World Order - Naomi Klein talks about "brand cocoons", "corporate soul", "cool hunting" and why this has spurred a student movement against global capitalism. Then we hear excerpts from a member of the Trilateral Commission analyze what he calls the "backlash against globalization". We conclude with a report on a federal intelligence network aimed at anti-globalization activists. In our second hour, we present 2 documentaries on the effect of the WTO in Central America, and these make it pretty clear why so many are fighting globalization with such energy and commitment.
