Gorilla Radio for Monday July 16, 2007
by C. L. Cook
This is the time of the Tyrant. That is, we are living to see capital "Tee" Tyranny, the inevitable, predictable, and absolute corruption of public and personal morays resulting from the taking and exercising of absolute power.
 
As the old adage warned, so it has come to be again; the world stands helplessly by as the appalling creation of America's fractured and usurped political system runs riot across the planet.
 
Chris Cook hosts Gorilla Radio, airing live every Monday, 5-6pm Pacific Time. In Victoria at 101.9FM, 104.3 cable, and on the internet at: http://cfuv.uvic.ca
 
 
 
Utilizing the greatest instrument for death and destruction ever devised, in the form of the U.S. military, George W. Bush and those that share his "vision" of what the world should be, now constitute a regime for world domination previous reich's could only envy; they have become, through the use of nuclear weapons - weapons that will poison the environment, and the gene pool of all the planet's creatures, in perpetuity - worse than Hitler. 
 
And true to the dictator's code, the inhabitants of the new Bunker Hill on Pennsylvania Avenue, are incapable of seeing their policy as responsible for the multiple disasters it has proven to be for so many everywhere the shadow of its influence has passed, but instead insist all will be well if only a greater fire be lit to extinguish the flames of the first.

Glenn Greenwald is an American, former constitutional law attorney, who now writes the Salon.com political column, Unclaimed Territory. He's also the author of the New York Times best-selling book, 'How Would a Patriot Act?' and the newly released, 'A Tragic Legacy: How a Good vs. Evil Mentality Destroyed the Bush Presidency.' Glenn Greenwald in the first segment.

And; none of what we have witnessed these last terrible years, wrought by the likes of George W. Bush, and Tony Blair, and John Howard, could ever have occured had the media been a vigilant defender of truth and democracy.
 
George W. Bush would have long ago slunk back to Midland, Texas, there to live out his life as merely a corrupt businessman with extraordinary connections to the power elite in America and the Kings of Araby. Blair's assault on the liberties fought and wrung from the hands of despots like Oliver Cromwell and the long line of Britain's monarchs would have been tossed out whole with New Labour into the dust bin of history, and John Howard... well, who cares? But that the media had performed its duty in Florida in 2000, or in London in 2001, not cheering from the front lines of Afghanistan, and then Iraq, but asking the obvious, necessary questions, how different it would all be. And now, they fail again in questioning the march to Iran.
 
And Canada's media is complicit in this too. Already one of "Western Democracy's"  most concentrated media markets, the Canadian Radio- television and Telecommunications Commission - the CRTC - is due to meet to discuss "reforming" the nation's laws that could, many fear, allow further media concentration and cross-ownership.
 
Steve Anderson is with Canadians for Democratic Media, a grassroots group determined to preserve what's left of diversity in the Canadian media landscape, and push for the adoption of policies here that will broaden mass media in all its forms. Steve Anderson getting the word heard in the second segment.

And; Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with some of the good things you can get up to in and around Victoria in the coming week.
