About Wiki Politiki Radio Podcast
“Where left and right come front and center to face the music and dance together, to turn the funk into function and leave the junk at the junction”
Despite what we hear and see on the news, we have a deeply UNITED body politic in America. Whether people identify as progressive, conservative, independent or “other”, the vast majority of Americans believe our current pay-to-play political system doesn’t represent them. Particularly in the election of 2016, where the candidate named “Neither of the Above” would have won in a landslide, citizens are feeling disheartened, discouraged and disenfranchised.
The elephant — and donkey — in the living room is the growing awareness that neither of the two major parties has the people’s interest at heart, nor the good of the commonwealth for that matter. The system is incapable of fixing itself, and so what is required is an “intervention” by the entity that our founding document, The Declaration of Independence declares is the “sovereign” of our republic: we, the people.

A Conversation with Historian, Author and Activist Harvey Wasserman
“Those who fail to learn the lessons of history condemn THE REST OF US to repeat it.” — Swami Beyondananda
This week Wiki Politiki is fortunate indeed to welcome one of the foremost progressive historians, anti-nuclear activists, and outside-the-matrix political “uncommontators” of our time, Harvey Wasserman.
Harvey is a life-long activist who speaks, writes and organizes widely on energy, the environment, history, drug war, election protection and grassroots politics. His breakthrough book, Harvey Wasserman’s History of the United States, was first published by Harper & Row (NY) in 1972, and featured an introduction by Howard Zinn.
His mission is the permanent shutdown of the nuclear power industry (he actually originated the phrase “No Nukes”), and the birth of Solartopia, a democratic and socially just green-powered Earth free of all fossil and nuclear fuels. Unlike many activists these days, he knows what he is FOR, and his sharp commentary cuts through both neoconservative and neoliberal BS. His recent article, 57 Unpatriotic Ways the Corp/Dems Have Enthroned Trumputin skewers the Democratic Party establishment corporatocracy, and he is indeed a “clear voice in the bewilderness.”
