Download Hour1 Download Hour2 The 2008 election as an example of Divide and Rule, the topic of this week's reading.
We start with some collected thoughts about how racism and economics as divide an conquer strategies. Two election stories from the AfterDowningStreet.org website introduce an analysis of how the class and capitalist systems ensure competition both between and within countries and societies. In our first hour, we start chapter 11 of Power and Powerlessness, which continues into hour 2. Since Susan Rosenthal mentions Stan Goff, we hear a 25 minute speech by him which draws the connection between racism and war. We then close with another 20 minutes of chapter 11.
