The Diversion of Discontent
Program #NADR008. Recorded in Boulder, CO on March 31, 1998.
Polls indicate widespread public discontent with the political system. Fewer and fewer people bother to vote for what Ralph Nader calls the "Tweedledum and Tweedledee" options of the Republicans and Democrats. People are diverted from the real issues of political economy and corporate power and privileges. Much of the media are devoted to "infotainment" and the spectacles of scandals, murder trials and sexcapades.
