Under the shadow of Mt. Weather
Phil and Phil Conlon discuss Seymour Melman, a Columbia University scholar who helped galvanize the antiwar movement from the 1950's on with analyses of the social costs of military spending. Melman died on Dec. 16 at his home in Manhattan.
Phil interviews Counterpunch contributor Joe Bageant about his Counterpunch article "Under the Shadow of Mount Weather: Driving on the Bones of God":
"Mount Weather is the hub of a nerve center of about 100 other Federal Relocation Centers, which guarantee that the really big players in the game escape even the worst disasters they create with their asses intact."
Bageant talks with Phil about current US politics, the militarization of American culture, the role of the religious fundamentalists, and the use of Lynndie England and others like her as cannon fodder and scapegoats.
