      Subject: KPFK/AWVIP Special Treat Tonight - Michael
      Parenti!

      Tonight, "Another Worldview is Possible" with Ian
      Johnston will feature a live interview with Dr.
      Michael Parenti in a farce of July special on
      "Superpatriotism". We'll be taking your calls!

      Friday, July 1st, 7:00 to 8:00 pm. (Pacific time)

      Dr. Parenti woke me up and put everything in context
      when he wrote, "They use fascism to protect
      capitalism, while claiming to be saving democracy from
      communism" (Blackshirts & Reds). Author of over a
      dozen
      books, including "Democracy for the Few," Professor
      Parenti is a scholar, an activist and a working
      person's hero!

      Tune in to KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles - or listen to
      streaming audio live at www.kpfk.org.

      Don't miss it!

      "....a conspiracy theory. It's just one of the devices
      that's used in the American indoctrination system to
      prevent scrutiny of power. If somebody does try to
      provide a critical analysis of American
      institutions, one of the ways in which you try to
      suppress this is to say, well, it's a devil theory or
      a conspiracy theory or so on." - Noam
      Chomsky

      "...take a critical look at our own political system
      and measure it not by its undoubted ability to hold
      elections but by its ability to serve democratic ends.
      It will be argued that whether a political system is
      democratic or not depends not only on its procedures
      but on the substantive outputs -- that is, the actual
      material benefits and costs of policy and the kind of
      social justice or injustice it propagates.
      By this view, a government that pursues policies that
      by design or neglect are so inequitable as to deny
      people the very conditions of life is not democratic
      no matter how many elections it holds." -
      Michael Parenti, "Democracy for the Few"

      "It is not corruption that brings down a society: it
      is the acceptance of corruption." -- Patrick Rattigan

      "One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If
      we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject
      any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer
      interested in finding out the truth. The
      bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to
      acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so
      credulous." Carl Sagan
