Genetically engineered food products are an issue that concerns many. In more recent years, Mendocino County has gone so far as to pass a resolution legally prohibiting their growth in the county. My guest in this program, recorded in the late summer of 1995, is Ron Epstein, a philosophy professor at both the Buddhist University in Talmage, CA and San Francisco State University. He has given considerable consideration to the problems of genetic engineering of the plants and vegetables that we eat. Dr. Ron Epstein recommends “Algeny,” by Jeremy Rifkin.

In his extraordinary 26 minute history of the Supreme Court Dr. Michael Parenti warned us in 1995 that this partisan, aristocratic institution might one day empower an autocratic president. It seems that time has come and two Trump appointees, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, can push the scales of justice in favor of their politics. Unless there is a groundswell to question and change the legal rules of that institution. Why is so much power being given to 9 unelected, non term limited judges. Michael Parenti was born into a working class Italian family in East Harlem, New York City. He went on to receive his Ph.D. in political science at Yale in 1962. His academic career was cut short by his dismissal after he was arrested for protesting the US war on Vietnam. Parenti became an independent scholar, lecturer and author. And he remained an activist as well. Over 20 years ago Parenti already pointed to the role of the court in concentrating wealth in the top 1 percent, and the way in which the Supreme Court expanded the power of corporations and laid the groundwork for what later became the Citizens United ruling of 2009. And most dangerously, how the Supreme Court began to give power to the president in matters of foreign policy and national security that neither Congress nor the Constitution had granted. Parenti said: ... by Judicial Fiat the President could now do whatever he wanted in the absence of specific legislative prohibitions. The Supremely Political Court is part of the series: Democracy What Went Wrong , how the CIA, media, corporations, universities, police and the Supreme Court are threatening democracy and what might be done to meet challenge. The original series was produced by TUC radio in 1995.

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.
