    You guys forgot about “Platoon” and “Apocalypse Now” = D
    “Great” war movies!

    Sorry I missed the show guys … I was busy getting sh1t-faced with a friend. Nasty hangover. =/

    Anyway, I listened to the archive and it was great as usual. The movie stuff is something I’ve been aware of in the past but it was good to be reminded about how much false propaganda is contained within them. It’s like Winston Churchill said … “History is written by the victors.”

    It was also good to hear Joey doing a turn on the show. Good job. It was particular interesting to here you speculate that the first true anarchist society will be formed by people who aren’t even anarchists. It put me in mind of the story of the south Atlantic island of Tristan de Cunha. For over 100 years the population of this island, which consisted mainly of shipwrecked sailors and passengers, lived an almost model anarchistic lifestyle. I like this because it can be used as a slap in the face for anyone stupid enough to use William Golding’s fictional work “Lord of the Flies” to argue that anarchism could never work. You can read more about this fascinating culture at the following blog entry …

    Peace guys … see y’all next week (prolly =P)

    I liked that Parenti clip so much that I lifted it from your show and put it on YouTube (I didn’t find it already on there). I hope you don’t mind.
