“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 documents, The Declaration of Independence and the Preamble to the Constitution declare is the “sovereign” of our republic: we, the people.

Propaganda Expert Is In Trouble For … Teaching About Propaganda — Irony Deficiency and Truth Decay in “Not-See” America
Aired 27 April 2021 – 5:00 PM EDT
Interview with Author, Journalist and Professor Mark Crispin Miller
“Notseeism: Deadly disease of the body politic where people choose to not see what is too uncomfortable to look at.” — Swami Beyondananda
As the Swami has been telling us for years now, the body politic is one sick puppy, suffering from irony deficiency … truth decay … electile dysfunction … and most recently from bi-polar disorder.
As a result, what we used to call democracy is in the intensive care unit – and those who intensively care about its survival are finding themselves more and more marginalized. Fortunately, we still have that bastion of truth, academia, where in the spirit of the Free Speech Movement more than half a century ago, academic freedom is alive and well as professors and students freely and frankly discuss the most divisive issues of our time.
Oh … wait a minute.
That must be happening in a parallel universe.
In this universe, a professor who has literally written the book on propaganda – or at least wrote the preface to one – is on the verge of being fired for teaching about propaganda. His crime? Pointing out the propaganda being promoted by the university itself.
Fortunately, his colleagues at the university have bravely rallied around him, and …
Oh … OK. That too is happening in a parallel universe.
Oh, well. All’s well that ends Orwell.
Our guest today, Mark Crispin Miller, has been fighting “notseeism” for decades, courageously pointing out those uncomfortable truths that others choose to not see. Now he is embroiled in his own battle to keep his position at NYU, after unmasking the propaganda about masking, and being guilty of “hate speech” – now defined as saying anything that the power structure hates to hear.
