It’s Our Money with Ellen Brown – The Cancer Stage of Capitalism

 Economies are life forces – interdependent systems built upon the facts of life and living. “Life capital” as Ellen’s noted guest Dr. John McMurtry says, is at the heart of true economic reckoning, and money is merely one derivative. McMurtry describes Capitalism as being in a cancerous stage in which it’s being devoured from within by metastasizing greed and self-interest, devouring all living materials in its path. Similarly, we look at the new What Wall Street Costs America project and get specific about how that cancer reality looks in Jefferson County, AL, which declared bankruptcy after buying into toxic interest rates swaps from Wall Street salesmen. One thing though – we also talk about the antidote for that cancer: public banks!

This week:

Regulation is the name of the game if you want to hold corporations accountable and keep them in line with the interests of people and planet. Sadly, there's one serious hurdle standing between us and regulation – and it has to do with how much your life is worth.

Next up, find a May Day action near you - and while you're at it, paint and spray your message of change in super villain coup de art.

But first, here's my 2 cents – on 20 dollars

Quote from Emerson: 
"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — 'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.' — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood." 
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self Reliance (1841).

This past week, thousands of people marched and were arrested on the steps of the Capitol demanding that the people’s voice be heard; that we the people, not money, be the driving force of our government.

Democracy Spring organized a full week of actions - rallying, marching and risking arrest.

Democracy Awakening organized the final three days with teach-ins, panels, rallies and marches, wrapping up the events with hundreds arrested on the Capitol steps.

This video covers the whole week - the rallies, the marches, and several of the people involved in this strong show of people power vs. corporate rule

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
