1. ~ Airing on CBC Radio One - Thursday, March 13 at 9:05 p.m.~
THE SUSPECT SOCIETY, Part 1 of 2 CD
The Surveillance Society. The New Authoritarianism. The Age of Paranoid Politics. These terms, and many others, have been used to describe how the political ground has been shifting under us, particularly since 9/11. Terrorism and national security have become obsessive anxieties. Fear and suspicion have become the order of the day. A world-wide initiative has developed that combines a growing machinery of surveillance, assaults on civil liberties and increasing censorship. We are living in what IDEAS producer Mary O’Connell calls “the suspect society.”

Part 2 airs March 20.

Interview on Neoliberalism, Youth and Social Justice, | Truth Dig | Mar 14, 2014 New!

Interview with Chuck Mertz, WNUR 89.3FM in Chicago - took place on March 8, 2014.

Henry Giroux on Zombie Politics, Interview with Bill Moyers & Company - November 22, 2013 - In his book, Zombie Politics and Culture in the Age of Casino Capitalism, author and scholar Henry Giroux connects the dots to prove his theory that our current system is informed by a “machinery of social and civil death” that chills “any vestige of a robust democracy.”

This week on Moyers & Company, Giroux explains that such a machine turns “people who are basically so caught up with surviving that they become like the walking dead – they lose their sense of agency, they lose their homes, they lose their jobs.”

Henry Giroux speaks with Ronald Jackson of the Taft Center at the University of Cincinnati in October 3, 2013 on issues of neoliberalism, the war on youth, and required cultural changes for a better future.
