Download Hour1 Download Hour2Credit to Virtual Renderings' "Ponderings From Within Leviathan" which moved me past the tipping point and inspired me to make the first audiocollage since the start of OWS. Based largely on 2 Virtual Renderings audiocollages, I overlay a range of other material to amplify the start choice that faces us - resist or be complicit in Leviathan's ongoing project of planetary destruction.
Less literal, more lyrical than usual, this is our first audiocollage since episode 574. I've been meaning to get round to an audiocollage for ages, and this time I've finally done it! Big thanks to Virtual Renderings' "Ponderings From Within Leviathan" and "True to Earth" which provided the base for the material presented here. The subject is well summarised by Terence Mc Kenna:
Quotes-66.gifThis is too nightmarish to contemplate. We're talking about the fate of a whole planet. Why are people so polite? Why are they so patient? Why are they so forgiving of gangsterism and betrayal? It's very difficult to understand. I believe it's because the dominator culture is increasingly more and more sophisticated in its perfection of subliminal mechanisms of control. I don't mean anything grandiose and paranoid, I just mean that through press releases and sound bytes and the enforced idiocy of television, the drama of a dying world has been turned into a soap opera for most people. And they don't understand that its their story and that they will eat it in the final act, if somewhere between here and the final act, they don't stand up on their hind legs and howl.Quotes-99.gif

Voices from Aldous Huxley onwards give different angles on the ongoing planetary destruction, which Chris Hedges terms a "500 year long rampage". Regular listeners to the show, will recognise several extracts from speeches which have featured in earlier episodes, albeit set to music and juxtaposed with fresh material.
Music: Many and various
