(Maintaining the system by any means necessary)
|⌚ Sat 26 July 2003 ☻Naomi Klein, Jeff Schmidt (reading)|
Download Hour1 Download Hour2 In the first hour Canadian author and journalist Naomi Klein illuminates George Bush's statement that resisting Iraqi's "don't want freedom", by drawing parallels between the looting of Argentina under a "free market" regime that led to its collapse and the corporate fire sale that is behind the war and so-called reconstruction in Iraq. In our second hour of the program we start reading of the second chapter of Jeff Schmidt's Disciplined Minds, entitled Ideological Discipline, on the unacknowledged political nature of professional work and the training process that leads to a professional class accepting of ideological subordination to ruling elites.
