Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week we look at the reality of freedom in USA, which seems intimately connected to possession of money. What does this tell us about the values of US society? And why do people accept this?
We start with Sharon Beder, a prolific author, speaks about her new book, "Free Market Missionaries" on how companies are promoting markets as the solution to all of society's ills. In the second half of our second hour, John Marciano then speaks on "Empire as a Way of Life". We conclude our show by returning to The Underground History of American Education, starting chapter 11 on the schools' role on creation of an official "Americanism".
