Host: Stephen Lendman

This Week’s Guests: Frances Fox Piven and Mark Crispin Miller

About this week’s guests:

Frances Fox Piven is a Canadian-born Professor of Political Science and Sociology at The Graduate Center, City University of New York. Her career is long and distinguished. She’s the recipient of many awards, combined scholarship with activism, and is the author of many important books. Most notable is her 1971 classic “Regulating the Poor: The Functions of Public Welfare.” It’s a landmark historical and theoretical analysis of how welfare policy is used to control the poor and working class.

Today’s topic is from a recent Piven book – “Challenging Authority: How Ordinary People Change America.” It’s about how social movements can be pivotal forces for change because ordinary people in enough numbers have enormous political clout. Abolitionists, labor movements and civil rights activists attest to it.

Mark Crispin Miller is a noted media activist, critic, and writer on modern propaganda, history and tactics of advertising, American film, and media ownership. He’s also Professor of Media Ecology (studies in communication) at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.

He’s written numerous books, including Cruel and Unusual: Bush/Cheney’s New World Order, Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Elections, and his newest as editor, Loser Take All: Election Fraud and the Subversion of Democracy.

Miller also has an active blog site, www.markcrispinmiller.blogspot.com – News From Underground.
