THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 232: The History of the Enslavement of Indigenous Peoples w/ Keith Pluymers and Hayley Negrin

With a culture war heating up in an election year, the ideological battle over hot button topics like Critical Race Theory, the 1619 Project, and reparations intensifies, there remains one historical fact that is constantly glossed over or just outright ignored on both sides of the battle. The complicated history of Native American enslavement. A complex narrative that spans beyond the American South, where the plantation economy had a stronghold on the institution of enslavement, Native Americans were bought and sold throughout the Americas, Spain and even parts of Africa. In this upcoming episode we’ll take a deep dive into the forgotten history of Native American enslavement.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 230: Will the Presidency of Pedro Castillo Survive the Right w/ Camilo Gómez

Only 5 months ago the ascendancy of Pedro Castillo from primary school teacher to president of Peru was seen as a victory for the poor and working class and a sign of a new rising Pink Tide in Latin America. Less than a year in office Castillo is facing challenges from the far-right opposition party calling for his impeachment, as well turmoil from within Castillo’s own Peru Libre socialist party that until the last minute was in support of Castillo’s ouster from office.
 
Peru, a country that has seen 4 presidents in the last 3 years has a long sordid history of corrupt leaders and congressional governments. In less than six months Castillo’s approval rating has dropped to its lowest point yet at a mere 25%. However, while many are unhappy with the young administration of Castillo, there is still a large contingent that want to see Castillo make good on his campaign promises and avoid giving power to what the majority of Peruvian citizens feel is a far more corrupt congress.
 
Will the reign of Pedro Castillo end like his predecessors in scandal and impeachment? Is the far right and oligarchic class too powerful for Castillo and the Peru Libre socialist party of overcome? Is there validity in Castillo’s claims that his poor lower-class campesino background is the impetus for his attempted ouster? We’ll ask these questions and more. This is Revolution.

TIR PRESENTS BEST OF 2021: Capitalism, Healthcare and The Largest Wealth Transfer w/ Billie Mintz

As the Boomer generation hits retirement age, we're looking at a 68 trillion dollar transfer of wealth to the younger generation.
THE GUARDIANS is a revealing investigative documentary set in Las Vegas, Nevada that exposes allegations of corruption within the Nevada Guardianship and Family Court systems involving the legal kidnapping of elderly people. The film shines a light on a lucrative business that drains seniors’ life savings and robs them of their freedoms.
Victims and their families are caught in a scheme that has allowed corrupt court-appointed guardians to take total control over their healthcare and financial decisions. Armed with court orders obtained under dubious circumstances, guardians are able to forcibly remove elderly wards from their homes, isolate them from their families and systematically empty their bank accounts.
In an unfolding saga that reaches the top level of government, a growing number of Las Vegas victims come together to seek justice, restitution, and freedom. Through their fight, the film exposes the scope of the systemic abuse of some of the most vulnerable members of our society.
As our aging population is about to record the largest transfer of wealth in history, we must protect them and their families from those that have been using a broken system to take advantage.
For 40 years nothing and no one has stood in their way. Until now.

Political scientist Norman Finkelstein has been an active critique of how the Holocaust is used to protect the abuses of the state of Israel. His work and advocacy have made him perhaps one of the most cancelled intellectuals in recent American history. Finklestein in fact is currently writing a book on the cancel culture phenomenon. We will ask Finkelstein about how criticism of Israel gets one cancelled in America and how the nature of ruling class discourse helps facilitate that

He is the author of ten books that have been translated into 50 foreign editions, including THE HOLOCAUST INDUSTRY: Reflections on the exploitation of Jewish suffering and, most recently, GAZA: An inquest into its martyrdom.​ GAZA: An inquest into its martyrdom (University of California: 2018)​; Method and Madness: the hidden story of Israel’s assaults on Gaza (OR Books: 2014); Old Wine, Broken Bottle: Ari Shavit’s Promised Land (OR Books: 2014); Knowing Too Much: Why the American Jewish romance with Israel is coming to an end (OR Books: 2012); What Gandhi Says, About Nonviolence, Resistance and Courage (OR BOOKS: 2012); “This Time We Went Too Far”: Truth and consequences of the Gaza invasion(OR Books, 2010; expanded paperback version, 2011); Beyond Chutzpah: On the misuse of anti-Semitism and the abuse of history (University of California Press, 2005; expanded paperback edition, 2008); The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the exploitation of Jewish suffering (Verso, 2000; expanded paperback edition, 2003); Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict (Verso, 1995; expanded paperback edition, 2003); A Nation on Trial: The Goldhagen thesis and historical truth (with Ruth Bettina Birn) (Henry Holt, 1998); The Rise and Fall of Palestine: A personal account of the intifada years (University of Minnesota, 1996).
