Robert Jensen - The Anguish in the American Dream


  "As we cope with downturns in American power in the world and the American economy at home, there is much talk about reviving, renewing, rescuing, or redefining the American Dream. We would be better off facing the anguish inherent in the American Dream. Once we recognize that the dream has always been dependent on domination, we can see what fundamental changes are necessary to avoid a planetary nightmare."  Jensen is the author of several books, including All My Bones Shake: Seeking a Progressive Path to the Prophetic Voice, and co-producer of the documentary film “Abe Osheroff: One Foot in the Grave, the Other Still Dancing,” which chronicles the life and philosophy of the longtime radical activist.

WikiLeaks, Backlash, and the Future of Open-Source Journalism

WikiLeaks' recent posting of more than 90,000 documents detailing the war in Afghanistan was perhaps the most important such disclosure since the Pentagon Papers. The Afghan War Logs, combined with leaked footage of U.S. personnel killing civilians and reporters in Iraq, has made WikiLeaks an important source for unfiltered information on the U.S.'s ongoing wars. Backlash to the leaks has been swift, with top administration officials implying that WikiLeaks founders have "blood on their hands." [video of Austin Indymedia event below]
