This is the first part of a two part interview with Stephen Jenkinson. Stephen Jenkinson is a teacher, author, storyteller, spiritual activist, farmer and founder of the Orphan Wisdom School, a teaching and learning house for deep living and making human culture, rooted in knowing history, being claimed by ancestry and working for a time yet to come. Stephen is the subject of the National Film Board of Canada's documentary film Griefwalker, about his experience working with the dying. His books include Money and the Soul's Desire, Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, and most recently Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble. There are more old people than ever before, and people are living longer than ever. But, there are virtually no elders in our society. No elder wisdom to pass down. And we see the effect of that in our world. Now more than ever we need to call forth elderhood in each other and ourselves, otherwise the world will devolve into self delusion and destruction. And we are well on the way there already. This is a powerful interview with a deeply insightful man.

The Decline And Fall Of The American Empire If a modern day Gibbons were to write about the decline and fall of the American empire she would surely feature Trumps bringing road crushing Abrams tanks and F15 fighter planes into Washington DC. Gibbons wrote about Julius Caesar who brought his imperialistic troops into Rome. To do so they had to cross the Rubicon river. This ended the Roman Republic. Today, July 4, 2019 symbolically marks the American crossing of the Rubicon. You cant have democracy at home and imperialism abroad. That was the lesson of Gibbons three volume history. But that wont be discussed on Fox and Friends so Trump will remain ignorant. The rest of us should be scared. If there is a shattering event in our country those tanks and planes will be aimed at us. Michael Steven Smith July 4, 2019 ---- Autonomous Weapons Systems And Laws of War The Pentagon is developing for future deployment a variety of autonomous weapons systems. They are known as killer robots. They will be active in the air, on the land, and on the sea. Killer robot deployment potentially conflicts with the laws of war. The Navy, the Air Force, and the Army will all have them. The robots will use algorithms and artificial intelligence. Once deployed they can operate for months on their own, monitoring, selecting, and destroying targets, including people. CampaignToStopKillerRobots.org /Armscontrol.org Guest - Professor Michael Klare, Five College professor emeritus of peace and world security studies, and director of the Five College Program in Peace and World Security Studies (PAWSS), holds a B.A. and M.A. from Columbia University and a Ph.D. from the Graduate School of the Union Institute.

His articles have appeared in many journals, including Arms Control Today, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Current History, Foreign Affairs, Harper's, The Nation, Scientific American, and Technology Review. ---- Supreme Court On Partisan Gerrymandering And The Census Question The underlying premise of our radio program Law and Disorder is in the words of our founder attorney Michael Ratner that democracy and the rule of law are increasingly becoming incompatible with capitalism and imperialism. A terrible example of this is the recent Supreme Court decision on partisan gerrymandering. The majority decision, written by chief justice John Roberts, was joined by his fellow four right wing pro-corporate authoritarian judges Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. In its unprecedented decision in Rucho v. Common Cause and Camon v. Bemusement Roberts wrote that supreme court would not get involved in election rigging matters, although majority rule is a foundation of American democracy. In addition to gerrymandering, another anti-democratic strategy practiced historically in the US has been voter suppression. Most infamously, the Democrats did this during the Jim Crow era to prevent recently freed slaves from voting. Currently the Republican Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross attempted to suppress votes by including a citizenship question on the census, which occurs every 10 years, and which determines money allocations among other things.In this instance the Supreme Court recently ruled that the question cannot be asked.
