What is possible, politically? When are we being too idealistic? What is “realistic,” when we talk about social change? Is non-violent revolution possible?
In this episode, I speak with journalist Vincent Bevins, author of The Jakarta Method, about the mass killings of suspected communists and ethnic Chinese in Indonesia during the 1960s and other Washington-supported anti-communist efforts around the globe. Next, Maya Menezes, writer of a recent article “Migrant workers are the present and future of low-carbon care work” in Briarpatch magazine, tells me about Canadian dependence on migrant labour, and the insidious myth of “scarcity” undermining our political goals.
