New World Notes - Ethos (Part 2)

This week on New World Notes: radio program #228, July 17, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., host Kenneth Dowst excerpts quirky and interesting film by Pete McGrain on the character of our time.

The film soundtrack includes good commentary by Norman Solomon, Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, former MP Tony Benn, the late Chalmers Johnson, and others. It is narrated by McGrain and Woody Harrelson

It's about democracy, and national policies, and why the policies are so anti-democratic. It's about how politicians and corporate elites have declared war on democracy, and how they use the corporate news media as powerful weapons to control public opinion. And it's about how these people give us perpetual real warfare for the sake of its high profits.

Ethos was adapted to radio by Robin Upton and originally broadcast on Unwelcome Guests. The adaptation is available complete at http://unwelcomeguests.net/586. I have condensed this adaptation for broadcast on New World Notes. Many thanks to Robin and Unwelcome Guests.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "false promises") of WWUH-FM, a community service of the University of Hartford.

You can listen to any installment of New World Notes online or else download it (as an mp3 audio file) for later listening. The show is archived at both A-Infos Radio Project and (from #90 onwards) the Internet Archive. Either link should get you a reverse-chronological listing of available installments. Or browse the show's Web site: Each installment has a page; each page has links to the recorded audio; and a handy table of contents will quickly find the installment you want.

Series overview: Political and social commentary in a variety of genres. Exploring the gap between what we want... and what they're trying to make us settle for.
