[216] The Hi-Tech Surveillance Our Oligarchs LOVE!

Watch the full episodes at Patricia Gorky is an anti-imperialist, socialist, organizer with ANSWER Coalition & Party for Socialism and Liberation San Francisco. In the interview Lee and Gorky go over a range of topics related to how governments and corporations are abusing their access to advanced technologies. Topics include the persecution of Julian Assange and the US's efforts to discredit his character to distract people from the truth that he has revealed, the Blue Leaks exposing US law enforcement for using their powers to attack activists, the growth of Big Data surveillance for the benefit of corporations and our oligarchs, the potential and risks of empowering intelligent technologies, and more. Also in this episode: In her "Weekly Offensive" Naomi Karavani dives into how the pandemic has revealed the flaws in the factory farm food production system. More people are becoming aware that Big Animal Agriculture spreads disease, and is bad for the environment, workers, and animals. The industry is fighting back against these valid criticism and their desperation is laughable. Anders Lee finishes off the show with a report on the inconsistent stances on fracking and climate change espoused by the Biden/Harris campaign. They're taking money from the fossil fuel industry, talking as if they take climate change seriously, and denying that they'll ban fracking. It's pretty obvious that their loyalties aren't with helping regular people survive climate change. ~ Full episodes of Redacted Tonight will no longer be available on YouTube.
