NEW-What will Trump do if there's a terror attack?

MARK DANNER points out that it's been 16 years since the attacks of 9/11, and thanks to Bush, Cheney, and Obama, "Donald Trump inherited a government on a permanent wartime footing, actively fighting in six countries, using means both public and secret - including drone strikes and attacks by covert special forces - and doing so with the benefit of never-ending war powers granted by Congress." What could go wrong?

When the Trump Appointee to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is moving to end Net Neutrality, which could open the door to Internet Service Providers blocking sites and creating "fast" and "slow" lanes, you'll hear my September 2013 conversation with JARON LANIER, one of the elder statesman of high tech. Lanier advocates for a radical redistribution of tech income, where we get paid for everything we share with the industry giants who profit from our posts, photos, videos and tweets.

Currently organizing where he grew up in Lancaster PA (as a Menonite), he was involved with Occupy Wall Street and has a lot to say about what worked and what we can learn from what didn't. Example: The rituals of assembly ended up standing in for strategy, becoming an end rather than a means. Smucker questions the left's tendency to identify as "the righteous few", where purity can become an obstacle to amassing enough power to win. He doesn't use the term "activist" because he believes that (self-)identification separates fighting for peace and justice from the rest of life, and creates an us which can leave out others. Insightful stuff. Join us.

Originally Aired April 2012

CHRIS MOONEY wrote the best-selling THE REPUBLICAN WAR ON SCIENCE in 2005. This book asks a deeper question. Does science have anything to teach us about why? And it turns out science does. Political parties reflect psychological needs - GOP wedded to certainty, Dems to novelty - and there lies at least one root of our divide.
