Program #ZINH036. Recorded in Boulder, CO on November 30, 2006.In a time of war, imperialism and official lying it's hard to be optimistic. The monopolistic media function as a weapon of mass distraction. They say, Don't fret about affairs of state. Turn to the sports pages or worry about clothes or whether Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes will be happy. Public apathy about serious matters seems to a problem. One often one hears comments like, "Why bother? Nothing we do matters." It's odd to hear these kind of views in a country that is relatively free and where many of us, particularly the privileged, have so many opportunities to work for social change and justice.
