Responsibilities of Teaching, Preaching, Reporting, Writing, and Speaking Out

In the face of multiple, cascading crises—economic and ecological, political and cultural—it is more important than ever to confront the reality of the threats we face. Based on a calm apocalypticism and a common-sense approach to intellectual life, We Are All Apocalyptic Now offers a framework for understanding our moment in history and the obligations of those who are trying to communicate that understanding to a wider world.

Host Sylvia Richardson speaks to Robert Jensen about the recent truckers protest in Canada and the politics of division, how to respond to different world views for environmental change, how do we confront difference weather man or women or different cultures. How to think about cultural change in the modern world.

We contextualize the Invasion of Ukraine by Russia

 Latin Waves host Stuart Richardson interviews Bruce Gagnon, coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space and publisher of a blog called Organizing Notes.

We contextualize the Invasion of Ukraine by Russia, both myself and Bruce have been speaking of this potential crisis since 2014, we are both long time peace advocates and believe that peace only comes through mutual understanding and the events that got us here. How the more you listen to the MSM the more confused and uninformed you become.

We speak about the US back coup in 2014 replacing a pro Russian president with a US puppet, how the coup government of Ukraine has a coalition with Neo-Nazis who terrorize the eastern Donbas region of Ukraine which is largely make up of Russian speakers, how thousands of Russian speaking citizens have been killed in this region without any condemnation from the UN or Western Media.

How the Minsk agreement with the current president has never been honoured, and how the US is pushing Ukraine to join NATO like Poland and Romania. This is untenable to Russia as they don’t want missile bases on their borders.

How the long term goals for Russia are spelled out by the Rand Corporation called “Overextending and Unbalancing Russia” (available online) And most importantly some reasonable options to end this conflict.

Plain Radical, Living, Loving and learning to leave the Planet Gracefully

Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Robert Jensen on his book Plain Radical, Living, Loving and learning to leave the Planet Gracefully. It’s hard to have hope…What will you tell the generations that come after you’re gone? The young ask the old to hope….what will you tell them? Tell them at least what you say to yourself. Tell them we lived in a world face with many challenges and also amazing opportunities to create a new path grounded in local focus, fierce intelligence and deep connection with one another.

Tell them the path is made by walking, by engaging with open hearted-ness and wide-awakeness that provide for a meaningful and radical engagement with the world.
