KMO and Douglas Lain set out to talk about 2019 and immediately start coloring outside the lines. The conversation continues on the Vault and concludes on YouTube: https://youtu.be/E4hKCCCBxc0
KMO talks with Harvey J. Kaye, author of Take Hold of Our History: Make America Radical Again, about what it means to be radical and how Americans can empower themselves by re-connecting with our history of radical organizing and action. KMO makes reference to The Final Reflection, a Star Trek novel from 1985.
KMO and John Michael Greer met up in Lancaster, PA this week to talk about ecofascism. JMG made a bit of a stir a few weeks back when he published an essay on his blog called The Next Twilight of Environmentalism. His thesis is that we're in the early stages of seeing media power-brokers discredit environmentalism by associating it with Nazis, white nationalists and mass shooters. Later in the podcast, KMO asks JMG about the candidacy of Andrew Yang and his signature policy, the Freedom Dividend.
