Scrappy summer continues!
This week, we’re back with a hearty dose of radical history and snarky politics. We kick off with some thoughts on Trump’s third indictment and “unindicted co-conspirator #1.” We then get into the anniversaries of the Gulf of Tonkin attack, and the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Which leads to a discussion of the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer and the new biopic out about him from Christopher Nolan.
We also discuss Leigh Phillips’ new blog about socializing private jets instead of banning them. BTW, we disagree and think anyone advocating for that is naive or a Trojan for the ruling class. You can listen to the segment and get our opinions on Phillips.
Finally, Scott discusses the upcoming protests around the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum, or APEC. Scheduled for mid-November in San Francisco.
