“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” — Isaac Asimov

“Unhappy events abroad have retaught us two simple truths about the liberty of a democratic people. The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group or by any other controlling private power. The second truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if its business system does not provide employment and produce and distribute goods in such a way as to sustain an acceptable standard of living. Both lessons hit home. Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing.”   — Franklin D. Roosevelt, “Simple Truths” message to Congress (April 29, 1938) Click here for full text    Click here for contemporary analysis of the speech in TIME Magazine

  1. An unplanned cursory look at this website reveals A GREAT QUANTITY AND QUALITY OF STUFF.
    Not surprised.
    Your talk show is equally fine, The level of effort and organization here reveals a gold standard that ALL media news and talk people should aspire to.
    Too bad the same high bar U set here is NOT what we see in the people set to take over the executive branch in Wash. D.C.
    I’m agnostic, but what the hell — If U exist God, we need a little divine intervention here in the “U.S.A., U.S.A.,U.S.A.!!” right about now. That Dec.19th final electoral “college” vote was a looong shot that demonstrated too much extremist, selfish ideology.
    Pleeeezzze God, don’t let us fail Ben Franklin’s admonition.
    Here’s mine. “Numbers don’t lie– REPUBLIKANS DO.” [ No offense, Mike. We need more republicans like YOU, to dilute the corrosive effects of republiKans like “Marble Mouth” Mitch McConnell, Paul “Eddie Munster” Ryan, Blow-hard bully Chris Christie, theocratic demagogue Ted Cruz, Mike Pence AND 70 yr. old adolescent bully and thief, the don Trump.]
    Mike, you, Geoff Berg, David Pakman, Amy Goodman and Thom Hartmann I pray will become the Zeitgeist emanating from independent, non-commercial media, lighting the way against the darkness that lies ahead.
    God, we sure could use some donated highway billboard spaces to go along with that donated 90 plus yr. old [house] on Lovett Blvd. :)
