10-part Series: The Untold History of the United States

(From Showtime) There is a classified America we were never meant to see. From Academy Award®-winning writer/director Oliver Stone, this ten-part documentary series looks back at human events that at the time went under reported, but that crucially shaped America’s unique and complex history over the 20th century. From the atomic bombing of Japan to the Cold War and the fall of Communism, this in-depth, surprising, and totally riveting series demands to be watched again and again. (Showtime forgot to mention that it would be a good idea for Americans to DO something more than just “watch.”).

A notable quote mentioned in the last episode:
“The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilizations were converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.”   ~ The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order; Samuel P. Huntington; 1996; pg. 51.

MUST SEE: Clip of Petraeus Chewing Out CIA Security Over Emails — Google Turnover to FBI Highlighted

In a stunning, newly-available video clip, General David Petraeus, ex-head of the CIA, is seen raging at senior associates about the surveillance which resulted in his forced resignation as director of the US spy agency.   Google’s role in turning over all his emails to the FBI is highlighted.  The clip shows Petraeus lamenting that he and his aides had not been more careful about guarding their Internet privacy. “I should have listened to Julian Assange” Petraeus says to a stunned audience.



Tip of the Hat to a European contributor who says this is all the rage there.

Phi Beta Iota:  We continue to support the reinstatement of Petraeus to the post for which he was confirmed by Congress.  We also continue to recommend that a DNI be appointed whose mission is to terminate the DNI and retire every single person now ostensibly employed by the DNI.

Video: “Illegal Everything”

The government is out of control as well as local prosecutors trying to make a name for themselves.

Phi Beta Iota: At the federal level, “illegal everything” is directly tied to incentivizing special interests that get 6-20 return on investment for campaign contributions. At local levels it seems to represent a fragmentation of society and an end of generic citizenship.

Video: Edible Education: Food Politics (Cal Berkeley)

Edible Education: The Politics of Food

Sep 23, 2011
Marion Nestle, PhD, MPH, Paulette Goddard Professor in Dept. of Nutrition at NYU.
A fantastic overview of the state of the American food system from food safety to marketing to children (Frosted Flakes & Froot Loops marketing budgets = $20million+), corporate lobbying against soda sugar tax, to the “food revolution” of more people demanding local organic foods, farmer’s markets (over 6,132 in 2010), calorie labeling, and much more.

At this mark she mentions that campaign laws are the source of all government corruption and that “we” should run for office,  inserting ourselves into the job positions filled with corrupt persons.
