Moving Three Minute Short From Thailand

Editor’s note: Yesterday we came across this three minute short, which evidently ran as a television commercial in Thailand, and were so moved by it that we’re passing it on to you. If everyone lived their lives like the people in this film, we figure we wouldn’t need laws or politics. Yup, it’s a pipe dream, but one worthy of consideration, we think. If you’re at work don’t worry. Go ahead and watch; it’s subtitled. You can keep the volume down. If you’re on Facebook, be sure to share so […]

The Hate Mongers

Hate. It occurs to me more and more that hate is at the root of the problems we’re having with our politics. And it’s not only the other guy who’s sowing hate. We’re doing it too. Left or right, our politics are all based on hate. This would seem to indicate that whatever afflicts us isn’t going to be solved with left/right politics. First we must apply the antidote to hate throughout our society before we can even think about moving forward. Indeed, that would be the first step of […]

Thievery Corporation’s Eric Hilton on “Illegal Downloading”

One of the hallmarks of the ’60s’ and early ’70s’ revolution was summed up by The Who’s finale on the 1971 Who’s Next album, “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” which ends with the all too prophetic words, “Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.” httpv://youtu.be/9fHFM9UhsKI Recently, when being interviewed by Max Keiser on the RT network’s Keiser Report TV show, Eric Hilton of the Washington, D.C. based band Thievery Corporation used the words to describe the current situation musicians face, now that the music biz jungle has moved from […]

Demand Progress Video On Implications Of Kirtsaeng Case

Editor’s note: This article was originally published on FOSS Force. Reprinted with permission. The internet activist group Demand Progress has released a short 2 1/2 minute video on YouTube that explains the implications of the legal wranglings between student Supap Kirtsaeng and textbook publisher John Wiley & Sons in a case that’s already gone before the U.S. Supreme Court and is now awaiting a ruling. At issue is the reselling of new textbooks purchased cheaply abroad in the United States. Kirtsaeng, a Thai graduate student in the U.S., sold textbooks […]

Panel Discussion on the Future of Tibet

This video was brought to our attention by our friend and bodhisattva in training Josh Vernon. This is a panel discussion that includes The Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to the Americas which took place at Bard College in Kingston, New York. httpv://youtu.be/L6o8R3LOuG8

Revolution Hits Europe – Spain

Editor’s note: Evidently the powers that be are trying to keep this on the down low, but people in Spain have been taking to the streets for the last four days in something that looks very much like what we’ve seen in Egypt and Tunisia. This video is exceptional, upbeat and full of hope… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIWn5FS5FkU&feature=player_embedded

Teens to Congress – “We Have Sex!”

Editor’s note: The Coffee Party movement posted this on their Facebook page today with the following intro: “Since Planned Parenthood has become ground zero in the fight over the budget, please watch this powerful, viral video. Imagine a reality-based, not an ideology-based, discussion about the budget!” Co-incidentally, showing up on our wall right next to this video was the following status update by our friend Matthew Arnett with KRKC News in King City, California: “Maybe if Republicans read the study on unwanted babies becoming democrats, they will leave the funding […]

Today’s Video: Daniel Ellsburg Handcuffed By Police Protesting Torture

Editor’s note: Most of us of a certain age will remember Daniel Ellsburg, who in 1971 leaked the “Pentagon Papers,” a top-secret Pentagon study of US government decision-making in relation to the Vietnam War, to “The New York” Times and other newspapers. Well, today Mr. Ellsburg is 80 years old and still very much an activist, thank you. In this video, Ellsburg is being handcuffed for protesting, outside the White House, the torture of Bradley Manning who is awaiting trial for allegedly giving government secrets to Wikileaks. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gM5PlmnPxWA

Today’s Video: The Dirty F-ing Hippies Were Right!

Editor’s Note: This video makes a well told powerful statement of truth. Although this video has been avaliable on YouTube since 2009, we feel it needs to go viral. If you’re an old hippie from the sixties, don’t be afraid to shout, “We tried to tell you so!” If you grew up in this post hippie world, don’t be afraid to question why all of this is still going on, even though we tried to warn the world over forty years ago. We urge you to post this on your […]

“The man who speaks of the enemy is the enemy himself.”—Bertholt Brecht.

“There is nothing more unequal than the equal treatment of unequal people.” – Thomas Jefferson We live in a world that runs on a war based economy. Wars create jobs. When we have peace people find jobs scarce. I first discovered this several years ago when a man at one of my screenings of Leni Riefenstahl’s film, Triumph of the Will, after hearing me speak, gave me a copy of Jerry Mander’s book, Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television.
