Class Dismissed: How TV Frames the Working Class (2005)

“Based on the book by Pepi Leistyna, Class Dismissed navigates the steady stream of narrow working class representations from American television’s beginnings to today’s sitcoms, reality shows, police dramas, and daytime talk shows. Featuring interviews with media analysts and cultural historians, this documentary examines the patterns inherent in TV’s disturbing depictions of working class people as either clowns or social deviants — stereotypical portrayals that reinforce the myth of meritocracy. Class Dismissed breaks important new ground in exploring the ways in which race, gender, and sexuality intersect with class, offering a more complex reading of television’s often one-dimensional representations. The video also links television portrayals to negative cultural attitudes and public policies that directly affect the lives of working class people.”

Class Dismissed (2004)

“Class Dismissed provides a critical look at how U.S. history is taught in high school, at the myths that reduce the complexity of history into simple soundbites, and the information that never seems to make it onto the textbook pages. How can we alter this system to address the limitations of the current curriculum, to allow students to find their own place in history and the world today, to inspire them to become active learners and AAASeries agents for social change? This video takes a beginning step by looking at the textbook industry, standardized testing, the lack of race and class analysis in textbooks, and the teacher’s role in introducing a range of perspectives into the classroom. Featuring authors Howard Zinn (A People’s History of the United States) and James Loewen (Lies My Teacher Told Me), New York public high school students, textbook industry insiders, and teachers, this is a must-see video for any student of American History.”

Chomping Climate Change – Blog

Blog. “Chomping Climate Change addresses the failure of politicians for more than 20 years to implement international policies on climate change. Now most people don’t trust what politicians say about climate change. But we explain that there’s a fast and inexpensive opportunity to reverse climate change – by replacing most of today’s least eco-friendly food products with better alternatives. Raising animals for food uses an estimated 45% of all land on earth, and most of that land was once forested – and it can be reforested with trees that will draw down carbon from our atmosphere to a safe level.”

Children of the Forest’; Restoring Our Symbiotic Brain & Mind.

Tony Wright is creating ‘Children of the Forest’; Restoring Our Symbiotic Brain & Mind. “I have been developing a theory explaining why our distant ancestors evolved an incredibly rare symbiotic brain that exhibited exceptional abilities, extraordinary perception and a sense of self the lies almost beyond our current comprehension. The same theory presents a clear diagnosis as to why our symbiotic brain has quite literally been eroding away with its associated traits and abilities having virtually disappeared. This has left us in an extremely delusional and self destructive state of mind and yet we are blind to the severity of the situation. Finally and most importantly, if the above diagnosis is accurate, it offers a powerful combination of treatments that can begin to quickly restore the kind of abilities and sense of self alluded to in ancient mythological and spiritual traditions. If the theory is valid and the project is successful it will have a huge impact on how we as a species perceive ourselves and respond to the enormous challenges we face.”

Chasing the Scream: The Opposite of Addiction is Connection

Book: “For the first time, the startling full story of the disastrous war on drugs–propelled by moving human stories, revolutionary insight into addiction, and fearless international reporting. What if everything you think you know about addiction is wrong? One of Johann Hari’s earliest memories is of trying to wake up one of his relatives and not be able to. As he grew older, he realized he had addiction in his family. Confused, unable to know what to do, he set out on a three-year, 30,000-mile journey to discover what really causes addiction–and what really solves it. He uncovered a range of remarkable human stories–of how the war on drugs began with Billie Holiday, the great jazz singer, being stalked and killed by a racist policeman; of the scientist who discovered the surprising key to addiction; and of the countries that ended their war on drugs–with extraordinary results. His discoveries led him to give a TED talk and animation which have now been viewed more than 25 million times. This is the story of a life-changing journey that showed the world the opposite of addiction is connection.”

Chasing Ice

Film: “In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk. Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Balog finds himself at the end of his tether. Battling untested technology in subzero conditions, he comes face to face with his own mortality. It takes years for Balog to see the fruits of his labor. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Chasing Ice depicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet.”

Changing Minds: The Art and Science of Changing Our Own and Other People’s Minds

“Think about the last time you tried to change someone’s mind about something important: a voter’s political beliefs; a customer’s favorite brand; a spouse’s decorating taste. Chances are you weren’t successful in shifting that person’s beliefs in any way. In his book, Changing Minds, Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner explains what happens during the course of changing a mind – and offers ways to influence that process. Remember that we don’t change our minds overnight, it happens in gradual stages that can be powerfully influenced along the way. This book provides insights that can broaden our horizons and shape our lives.”

Changing the Game: Animal Liberation in the Twenty-First Century

“Norm Phelps has long been one of the leading theoreticians, historians, and strategists of the animal advocacy movement. His new book collects his recent writings on this subject, as well as offers in print for the first time a fully revised and updated version of the e-book he published with Lantern in 2013 (978-1-59056-379-3). Phelps argues that faced with the overwhelming wealth and power of the animal exploitation industries, animal activists are like David trying to stand up to Goliath. But rather than following the unsuccessful strategies of the past, Phelps proposes that we change the game by adopting David’s strategy of refusing to play by Goliath’s rules. Additional essays explore class and race in animal advocacy, the place of public policy vs. private morality in creating social change, and the unyielding barrier of human exceptionalism. Trenchant, wise, and deeply committed to the reduction of suffering and the liberation of animals, Changing the Game is sure to offer animal advocates much food for thought as the movement charts a way forward for all sentient beings. “

Change of Heart: What Psychology Can Teach Us About Spreading Social Change

Book: “Should anti-war protesters use graphic images to get public support for their cause, or will such images turn the public off? In encouraging the public to adopt sustainable behaviors, should environmental organizations ask for small changes like using fluorescent light bulbs or big changes like giving up cars? Why do most Americans say they oppose the cruel practices of factory farms and sweatshops yet still buy products from these places? And how can non-profits get more people to say yes to their requests to volunteer, donate, recycle, write a letter to a political prisoner, support gay rights, go vegetarian, conserve energy or make other positive changes? Scientific research has generated a wealth of information on how people can be persuaded to alter their behaviors, yet this body of knowledge has been largely ignored by those working to improve society. Change of Heart: What Psychology Can Teach Us About Spreading Social Change brings this information to light so that non-profits, community organizers and others can make science-driven decisions in their advocacy work. The book examines more than eighty years of empirical research in areas including social psychology, communication studies, diffusion studies, network systems and social marketing, distilling the highlights into easy-to-use advice and serving as a psychology primer for anyone wanting to spread progressive social change.”

Change the Story, Change the Future: A Living Economy for a Living Earth

Book: “Our current story is about Sacred Money and Markets. Money, it tells us, is the measure of all worth and the source of all happiness. The market is omniscient. Earth is simply a source of raw materials. Inequality and environmental destruction are unfortunate but unavoidable. Although many recognize this story promotes bad ethics, bad science, and bad economics, it will remain our guiding story until replaced by a more compelling story that aligns with our deepest understanding of the universe and our relationship to it. A Sacred Life and Living Earth story is grounded in a cosmology that affirms we are living beings born of a living Earth itself born of a living universe. Our health and well-being depend on an economy that works in co-productive partnership with the processes by which Earth’s community of life maintains the conditions of its own existence—and ours. Offering a hopeful vision, this book lays out the transformative impact adopting this story will have on every aspect of human life and society.” PDF discussion guide available.

Celebrating non-violent resistance in Aotearoa-New Zealand

“Pax Christi has joined a growing minority who are trying to put Parihaka and its celebration of non-violent resistance in its proper place of honour. So, as November comes around, we turn our minds again to find some way in which we can promote the memory of these two prophetic heroes who tried to integrate their own traditional spirituality with the stories of resistance in the Christian scriptures which they knew well. In doing so, they developed a practice of non-violent resistance which is part of a world-wide movement reaching into our own time. We are working to see that they are given full recognition in this their own land among other such leaders, both international and indigenous, who have sought the path of reconciliation and the non-violent resolution of conflict in the spirit of the peace of Christ.”

CAS Group Wiki (complex adaptive systems)

“Welcome to the CAS Group Wiki. The CAS Group is a community for people interested in the science and theory of complex adaptive systems (CAS), and in their basic principles and applied principles. CASs are perhaps the most interesting complex systems, they are not only ‘complex’ – they are diverse and made up of multiple interconnected elements – and ‘adaptive’ – they have also the capacity to change and learn from experience. The basic element of CAS theory is the agent-based model. The logo describes the phenomenon of emergence, as it can be observed for example in swarms and flocks. Like self-organization it is a essential principle in the theory of complex adaptive systems. There are also pages about the emergence and collapse of civilizations and complex societies, the role of chaos in neural networks, self-consciousness, new forms of AI, new kinds of science, theories of everything and new forms of technology and interesting philosophical questions as well, for example if we can describe the mind as a group of interacting agents, an ecology or society of mind. How does the mind work? What is life? What is consciousness? What is evolution, and can we go beyond darwinism and extend Darwinian theory to inanimate matter, too, obtaining some kind of quantum evolution ?”

Can We Do It Ourselves? (2015)

“Within modern life exists a paradox: we celebrate democracy as a political system, but not as an economic system, even though our workplaces have a far greater impact on our day to day lives. It’s fair to say that most workplaces under capitalist management are organized in an authoritarian fashion, yet this fact is rarely questioned or thought about. Why has it become normal to reject authoritarianism in our governments, while accepting it when we clock into our jobs? “Can We Do It Ourselves?” asks if it is time to start pushing for a democratic, cooperative way of doing business, showing case studies of businesses who are surviving as democracies within our capitalist system.”

Well, in short, there is absolutely no reason why it wouldn’t be, provided one is getting all required nutrients! And although high quality studies assessing the suitability of plant-based nutrition for athletic demands are yet to be conducted, a large body of anecdotal evidence already exists.”

Bure Stop

“This project of gigantic ATOMIC UNDERGROUND POUBELLE at least 500m underground has been underway since 1994, as a result of the 1991 law on the management of nuclear waste. The second law of June 2006 focused on BURE, a clay site in the Meuse , near the Haute-Marne, via a pseudo “laboratory” of geological research. The third law of 2016 activates the beginning of Cigeo , via a so-called “pilot phase”, which has nothing to do with research. This is the first industrial phase of the project (about 25% of the estimated total cost!). In 2019, Andra must file its application for authorization to create (DAC) and the worksite would then start, if granted. However, many preparatory works, very controversial on the ground, were launched at the end of 2015. 15 km2 are annexed between 4 Meuse villages : Bure, Ribeaucourt, Bonnet and Mandres to build huge infrastructure and 300 km of galleries. A future no man’s land? Who can want to live near such a site? This landfill project, refocused today at BURE, concerned 25 sites in France and is the object of very strong mobilizations and oppositions … which are not ready to finish.”

Breaking The Silence – Truth And Lies In The War On Terror (2003)

“BREAKING THE SILENCE is a film with enormous emotional power, bringing us the human consequences of our military attacks on Middle East countries. It also provides us with important insights into the reasons for these cruelties, exposing the emptiness and hypocrisy of the claims made by the Bush administration that it is fighting terrorism and promoting freedom. I wish this film could be shown in every classroom in the United States, to guard young people against the lies they will hear from on high, and to prepare them to be active citizens in the struggle for a peaceful world.” – Howard Zinn, Author, A People’s History of the United States
